Memory Speed Affects Gaming Performance; An Intel Question
     Wed, Jun 28 2017 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”After running through all of the tests, it appears that what I previously thought was an easy and clear answer is in fact more complicated. With the evidence provided I can safely say that memory can play a large role in some games over all frame rates. However, other factors like the processor, type of video card, and resolution will usually provide bigger impact in the final frame rates. Strictly speaking of game performances, the fastest memory tested does yield better results. Some games average FPS was within a 3% margin of error and others were wildly different. I think what any reader should take away from this article is that they need to factor in the rest of the system and make a sensible decision based on their setup. If you have money to burn or like to go full throttle, then you are probably already planning an SLI or Crossfire setup. At that point you might as well spend that little bit of extra memory to receive a faster set of memory. However, sometimes the jump in prices from one set to another can be drastic and that money could be better spent across the system as a whole.

Gigabyte Aorus GTX 1060 Xtreme Edition 9 Gbps
     Wed, Jun 28 2017 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Nvidia announced the extremely powerful GTX 1080 Ti they slipped in a few other launches as well, mostly unnoticed. The GTX 1080 with the Ti’s 11 Gbps memory was one of them and I have covered those recently. Then there is the GTX 1060 with upgraded memory running at 9 Gbps. This didn’t get much attention, but with AMD introducing the RX 500 series of cards I’m curious if the upgrade to the GTX 1060 was enough to keep up. Gigabyte sent one over and today I’m going to check it out, focusing on how it compares to the normal GTX 1060, the RX 480, and the RX 580.

Silent Ethereum Mining On EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 at 22 MH/s
     Tue, Jun 27 2017 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this week we showed you that the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Founders Edition had really good hashrate performance of around 27 MH/s in stock form and then easily over 30 MH/s with the memory overclocked. Most GeForce GTX 1070 8GB graphics cards are over $400, so today we are going to be looking at the lower cost GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card. This card in-stock for purchase at most retailers and prices start around $249.99 and depending on the model you should have a hashrate of around 18-19 MH/s. Once you overclock the memory you should be able to get the hashrate on the GTX 1060 up to around 22-23 on most cards. Read on to see what we did with the EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 FTW+ video card in order to make it silent while getting 22 MH/s mining!

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds Mini-Test
     Tue, Jun 27 2017 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds pre-release build has been available since March, and by the first month it had sold well over a million copies. So the game is popular, but it's also known for not being greatly optimized. I've been messing around with a few CPU and GPU combinations over the past week, seeing which hardware deliver the most value.

Phanteks Enthoo Elite (£800 mega case)
     Tue, Jun 27 2017 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our video we suggest the Phanteks Enthoo Elite might be the most expensive PC case in the world, completely forgetting the In-Win H-Tower costs £1,999. Well OK, fair enough, if we discount cases that have motorised panels the Elite is the most expensive case in the world. The price is significant but the main point is that Phanteks Enthoo Elite is a huge case with aluminium panels and a massive glass door that offers the longest list of features we have ever seen.
