An event organised annually by Asus, a world leader in motherboard and graphics solutions, the World Gamemaster Tournament also takes place in Singapore, right here at Funan Digitalife mall. VR-Zone brings you closer to the gaming action!
We heard the overclocking headroom for GeForce 8800 GT is pretty impressive mainly due to the finer 65nm process technology. However, Nvidia has purposely limits the core clock at 600MHz so its performance won’t get too close to the GeForce 8800 GTS thereby hurt its sales. However, users can still choose to overclock the core
It seems that Nvidia is planning another GeForce 8800 GTS SKU with more stream processors. This is to widen the performance gap between the upcoming 8800 GT and 8800 GTS as 8800 GT is coming too close and it might hurt the sales of 8800 GTS. As such, the number of stream processors is increased
Yes, we’re still at it with Intel’s P35 chipset even though Intel X38-based boards are streaming in slowly.
