VR-Zone is going to tie up with ASUS to showcase our SLI rig of the month using ASUS A8N32SLI Deluxe and EN7800GTX cards. We will also see the ASUS EAX1800 XT card there. WCG Grand Finals will be
We took this new motherboard from DFI for some overclocking tests and put a naked FX-57 under some cascade cold treatment. With a better board layout/design and more tweakable options in BIOS, we are able to overclock the FX-57 to 3.9GHz and is stable under 3DMark benching. We will write a review on this fine
Although ATI has just announced the Radeon X1000 family consists of X1300 (RV515), X1600 (RV530) and X1800 (R520) but the internal department isn’t too pleased with their performance so far. Therefore, ATi is stepping up their effort on the next generation R580 and has already completed the design and development process so the performance should
