Kingston's current offerings in the DRAM market might not seem as aggressive as some of the other vendors, however Kingston is bringing back some of their old lines such as the T1 line with tall heatspeaders. This is one of Kingston's latest shots at the high-end DRAM market for Z77 overclocking, so follow us as
You've seen the Net coverage of AMD Mark Papermaster's Hot Chips Steamroller micro-architecture unveiling. Looks like what Bulldozer should have been in the first place a year ago, but some stuff is still missing to compete better against Intel…
USB flash drives are the most common and widely used form of editable data storage, which today have all but replaced floppy disks and other similar data storage devices. The integration of USB 3.0 ports in most middle and all high end motherboards this year has spurred a vast interest over new, high speed USB
Recently, there were a lot of rumors that AMD reorganized its roadmap and that some late 2012 and regular 2013 parts were cancelled. Before going any forward, we can now say that some of those rumors are true.
It looks like we have entered an era of not innovation, but rather innovation litigation. Companies are suing each other for technologies which were a part of the enthusiast movement not too long ago. The latest case in point is Asetek Holdings, which sued CoolIT Systems for US patent #8,240,362.
Couple of weeks ago at the Siggraph 2012 conference held in Los Angeles, both AMD and NVIDIA introduced the next generation of its professional graphics cards based on 2012 graphics processors. Both companies picked up different approach, hoping to yield the best results. In this article, we explain what you can expect on the workstation
Originally, Kepler GPU architecture was scheduled to debut in 2011, with the successor codenamed Maxwell coming in 2013. We were not surprised to hear that Maxwell, tied to a 20nm process node – is getting delayed as well.
We pit ASUS's non-reference DirectCU II TOP variant of the GTX 660Ti (with the latest 305.68 drivers) against its direct competitor AMD Radeon HD 7950 with Boost (Catalyst 12.8), on modern games like Battlefield 3, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and the wildly popular Sleeping Dogs!
Today we take the Maximus V Extreme for a spin on our LN2 test bench. Never before have we seen a motherboard so packed with innovative overclocking features and support. This board not only packs the latest technologies from the ROG OC team, but it also incorporates many of the latest platform technologies such as
The "Denlow" Xeon E3 v3 platform, in early to mid 2013, would be the first Haswell workstation / entry level platform, just after the Ivy Bridge based Xeon E5 v2 platform appears – odd roadmap schedule, isn't it?
In the world of server and workstation systems, Intel deploys a two-fold strategy with "EP" and "EX" -platforms. For example, Boxboro-EX platform powers the Xeon 6500/7500 and E7-2800/4800/8800 processors, while Romley-EP platform powers Xeon E3 and E5 Series.
The sale of zero-day exploits is a highly controversial topic, but the debate has recently taken on a new tone. Instead of being centered on the money or the ethics of it, the debate has become centered on the issue of personal freedoms and liberties.
Antec is a well-known computer case manufacturer with a long line-up of products. We have reviewed many of their premium cases in the past, including the massive Eleven Hundred gaming case and the elegant P280. Today we will be having a look at another, differently orientated case from Antec, the One. As simple and essential
Had to go to Taiwan or Korea for that super duper LCD monitor fix? Not anymore… China's got some interesting goodies, too, and much more to come.
The substantial, if not indefinite, delay of Trinity desktop parts, as well as server-centric focus of the remaining Piledriver chips that are expected - like 16-core 'Abu Dhabi', raises some questions.
Intel’s “MIC” Xeon Phi die has 62 cores, and was aimed for clocks much higher than 1GHz to fight Nvidia GK110
Our Theo covered a bit of the current stage of Xeon Phi a.k.a MIC sampling. Is there more meat left on the table?
Nvidia's Kepler, although arriving much later to the 28nm game, has proven itself to be a credible competitor to the Southern Islands offerings of AMD, excelling in mainstream gaming performance and energy efficiencies. What happens if you take the already cut-down 7 SMX units in the GK104 die of GTX 670 and further curtail its
These things that you cant really play… We test the effects of resolution scaling, graphical detail, computationally heavy GPGPU tests and do some power/price analysis at the end.
The way its meant to be played… or gaming evolved? We run through the performance of the different game engines behind some of the popular titles today to see the effects of memory bandwidth and clock speed scaling on contemporary GPUs from AMD and Nvidia.
The competition over high performance CPU coolers has been relentless lately as numerous companies, both old players and newly founded, are continually releasing new high performance and/or innovative products. It is in the midst of this fierce competition that Phanteks was founded, a company which will be focusing on high performance cooling-related products for
