 [LATEST]  G.SKILL Releases Damn Ugly DDR4-4300 Memory Kits
     Mon, Sep 16 2019 | 4:11P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com
These may be the damn ugliest pairs of memory we've ever seen... tech specs are impressive though.

"G.SKILL has released a new high-frequency, high-capacity memory kit to the G.SKILL Trident Z Royal series at DDR4-4300MHz CL19-19-19-39 and DDR4-4000MHz CL16-18-18-38, both in kit capacity of 64GB (8x8GB) and 32GB (4x8GB). Once again, these extraordinary G.SKILL Trident Z Royal memory kits are built with high performance Samsung B-die components.

As an excellent choice for tasks that require both high-capacity and extreme speed memory, the high-performance DDR4-4300MHz CL19-19-19-39 64GB (8x8GB) is shown in the stress test screenshot below, validated on the latest ASUS ROG Rampage VI Extreme Encore motherboard and the Intel™ Core® i9-9820X processor. This is the perfect memory solution for building an all-powerful workstation for various content creation workloads, including 3D rendering and multimedia editing.

Additionally, a low latency 64GB (8x8GB) memory kit at DDR4-4000MHz CL16-18-18-38 is shown in a similar stress test run in the screenshot below, also validated on the ASUS ROG Rampage VI Extreme Encore motherboard and the Intel™ Core® i9-9820X processor. Under this memory specification and test system, the memory read bandwidth on AIDA64 is shown to surpass a speed of 101GB/s in quad-channel memory mode.

These extreme performance RGB memory specifications in 64GB (8x8GB) and 32GB (4x8GB) kit capacities will support the latest Intel XMP 2.0 for easy overclocking setup and will be available via G.SKILL worldwide distribution partners in Q4 2019."

Posted by: STAFF
The Xigmatek Zest is one hefty chassis that throws RGBs at us in every possible way: by embedding them into two 200 mm fans, the company logo, and a third fan in the rear, just for good measure. It looks like a sleek and large case that promises to handle any hardware.

 [LATEST]  Siege of Centauri
     Mon, Sep 16 2019 | 3:46P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Games that first launch through some kind of early access program are a bit of a conundrum for me, when it comes to reviewing them. A game can change quite significantly between that first version and its release state, so opinions and impressions may lose validity. When Siege of Centauri entered Steam Early Access and I was provided a key by Stardock, I thought of an approach that might help me navigate the issue and that was to use it for the Saturday streams I do. That way I not only am somewhat regularly playing the game and experiencing the changes it receives, but also capturing my impressions of the game (when I am not trying to cover some of the news of the week). If nothing else, it seemed like a good idea and now the time has come to review Siege of Centauri in its release state."

Posted by: STAFF
"The current AMD EPYC 7742 2P benchmarking that is happening at Phoronix is an interesting Linux/BSD operating system performance comparison. That's in the works while so far are some Ubuntu and Clear Linux numbers. Yes, Intel's open-source Clear Linux platform does run fine generally on AMD hardware -- including the new AMD "Rome" processors -- and generally does still run damn fast. Here is a look at Clear Linux on this 128 core / 256 thread server with Clear Linux against Ubuntu 19.04 as well as the upcoming Ubuntu 19.10."

Azulle Byte3 Fanless Mini Desktop PC Review
     Sun, Sep 15 2019 | 9:01A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Here at ThinkComputers we are often focused on the best of the best, the top of the line, the highest performing hardware. But every now and then we find ourselves in need of a specialized system for a certain task or use case. This could be anything from something like a Raspberry Pi for some sort of maker project, to a dedicated home theater PC. And sometimes we just need a small, yet decently powerful system to perform day to day tasks without breaking the bank or taking up a ton of space. It is this last scenario we will be focusing on today as we take a look at the Azulle Byte3 Fanless Mini Desktop PC. The Byte3 is a mini-PC that has been designed to offer a lightweight, yet powerful system, capable of keeping up with the day to day tasks of an average user. That isn’t to say that the Byte3 is a slouch, as it offers support for 4K video at 60fps, and enough horsepower for a bit of light gaming as well. Follow along as we take a closer look at the Azulle Byte3 Fanless Mini Desktop PC."

Intel Apollo Lake and Gemini Lake OC Tutorial
     Sat, Sep 14 2019 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking an inexpensive Intel N3450 Apollo Lake or Intel N4100 Gemini Lake CPU is officially not possible due to the locked multiplier, but we have looked into this issue in order to provide a little bit more performance for users of slower PC systems and have even written a small OC Tool. So from now on you can not only overclock a common Intel CPU , but also get some more out of a low budget Intel Apollo Lake system.

Seagate's GoFlex TV HD is a media player with network connectivity and hard drive dock. The pint-sized black box fits unobtrusively in a living room environment - unlike a full sized Media PC - and the GoFlex TV HD's on screen controls are simple to navigate via the infrared remote control. Full size media PCs often need a keyboard and mouse to be useful, having cooling fans that make a lot of noise and take up too much space...
