Though I’m stuck on the 11x Multiplier and 380+MHz FSB choke on the DFI 975X Infinity, I decided to do some Cross-Fireage overclocking for the hell of it. Setup Consists of Intel Core 2 Duo X6800, DFI 975X Infinity, ATi Powercolor X1900 Cross-Fire running mildly chilled water and 2 x 512MBCorsair 5400UL @ CL4-3-2-1 480MHz!
Despite the hype that the upcoming Intel Core 2 Duo Processor is generating, the AM2 Socket AMD launched recently still has it’s fair share of supporters and users. We take a brief preview of DFI’s upcoming offering of NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI packed in AMD’s freshly baked AM2 socket. Yes, it is more of a
Now who says Apple is the only one producing Notebooks colored in total white? This week we present you Asus’s very own white notebook, the Asus U5F. How does this fair lady look, perform and what does she feature? VR-Zone goes in and puts her on the dentist’s chair to see if YOU should be
The Intel 975XBX Board has risen in popularity in the past few months, not just among the mainstream users but also among the enthusiast and overclockers. As a motherboard targeted at the mainstream consumers however, it is quite limited in the voltage options offered in the BIOS, particularly the Memory Voltage. Shaky hands and the
It’s fine time for you, the vr-zoner to check out how exactly does the Asus P5W DH Deluxe, one of the few Intel Glenwood 975X mainboards in the market now that supports the Conroe… Wait! The mainboard comes with a remote control? Wadda…
I have finished building the -30C Chiller for my 7950GX2s and X1900XTs. I’ve just tested overclocking the 7950GX2 on the Intel XBX Motherboard with Intel Conroe X6800. Click on to see the results!
We take a first look at DFI’s latest Motherboard 975X Infinity and check out some simple pencil Voltage Mods for the nice board.

June is one of the hottest period of the year in Singapore… where we enjoy “warm climate” all year round. However a group of us chilled out for 3 days in our Igloo… at VR-Zone’s Eskimo Party! Held in Singapore’s only Ice Skating Ring Fuji Ice Palace, it is the FIRST in the world, Overclocking
HIS has been developing a unique dual GPU, single PCB graphics accelerator sporting two ATi RV530 chipsets. Increased bandwidth is available to the two GPUs thanks to the use of a PLX bridge chip.
Gecube has recently released their product roadmap that outlines new ATi 80nm based products. The new 80nm RV560 and RV570 are still designed with 12 Pixel Shader Processor, similar to RV530 Crossfire except they have build-in Compositing Engine. The final specification of RV560/RV570 is perhaps a mystery till its release in this summer.
Intel has introduced a new technique of shaping transistors on die to reduce leakage current even on smaller upcoming processes.
D0 Stepping will be introduced to both Pentium D and Celeron. As 65nm process is now in mature, the specification is upgraded from FMB 05A to FMB06, with 65W TDP as a maximum. Since most of the Intel based main board follows the FMB 05B specification, there is no necessary change to the design.
AMD decided to drop their prices on 24th July, the day after Intel’s price-cut on Netburst CPUs. Intel would announce their new architecture dual core processor “Conroe” on 23rd July. On the same day, the old Netburst based Pentium D CPUs will drop price by 40% to 60%. Manufacturers are deeply concerned about the ratio
Pentium D will gain 95W TDP from September this year. Besides the lower TDP, some defects will be rectified. Intel Pentium D 960, 950, 945, 925 and 915 will be released in D0 Stepping. Pentium D 940, 930 and 920 are excluded from these improvements.
