Intel Core i7 980X Extreme Edition Processor Benchmarked! - Intel Core i7 980X Extreme Edition Processor Benchmarked!
Wed, March 10 2010 | 3:26PM | PermaLink Feedback?
www.pcstats.comToday Intel launched a new CPU based on their newest 32nm process technology codenamed "Gulftown". It is an "Extreme" CPU both in name and price - weighing in at 3.33 GHz (base, Turbo hits up to 3.60 GHz) with six individual cores (and thanks to HyperThreading that means twelve threads) and 12MB of shared L3 cache, the Core i7 980X Extreme Edition will set you back a bit over $1000 when it hits e-store e-shelves this week.

We put it to the test against the identically clocked (and nearly identically priced) Core i7 975 Extreme, and a handful of other $500+ processors to see how it competes in today's applications (we threw in a Phenom II for good measure, too).

Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 TOXIC Video Card - Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 TOXIC Video Card
Thu, December 30 2010 | 12:02PM | PermaLink Feedback?
"We’ve already seen HIS bring us the HD 6870 Turbo which was quite fast, so it comes as no surprise that Sapphire has come out with a TOXIC version of the HD 6850. Considering AMD left it up to the AIB to handle the HD 6850, it really doesn’t come as a surprise since they’ve probably been working on the model for a while. So what’s the TOXIC have in store for us? Well, usually it’s an upgraded cooler along with a bump in clocks. The questions we have to ask ourselves is how the new cooler goes and whether or not the clocks are something that we should be getting a little excited about. The HD 6800 series is looking the goods at the moment and it seems with the slight delay in the HD 6900 series till December, companies are going to have a little more time than they actually thought with the HD 6800 series for the aforementioned reason."
