 [LATEST]  AMD Ryzen 7 1700 Processor Review
     Thu, Mar 30 2017 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I have been covering the tech scene for a long time, over 10 years now. I cannot remember a time where there was so much hype for a product like we saw for AMD's Ryzen CPUs. Let's face it, for quite a while now AMD was not able to compete with Intel when it came to desktop processors. This inability to compete, especially in the enthusiast market, prompted AMD to completely redesign a new processor. This is not something that could just happen overnight, Ryzen has actually been in development for 4 years. AMD had a goal in mind, which was to bring AMD back into the minds of enthusiasts and system builders. I would say for the past 5+ years if you asked my advice on building a new PC I would have suggested an Intel processor. Can Ryzen change my opinion on that? Well today we get our first look at Ryzen, starting with the Ryzen 7 1700 processor. This is the 8-core, 16-thread processor which runs at 3.0 GHz and boosts up to 3.7 GHz with a TDP of only 65W. You get all of this for a very nice price of $329.99. Let's get this chip in a system and see what it can do!"

 [LATEST]  ASUS PRIME X370 PRO Review
     Thu, Mar 30 2017 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The PRIME X370 PRO comes in as amongst the cheapest X370 motherboards available and misses out some of the perks of the platform, such as SATA express, or an NVMe port, which aren't yet commonly used standards, but it does feature an M.2 socket and a front panel USB 3.1 Gen 2 header, technology that is undoubtedly becoming much more mainstream.

 [LATEST]  Samsung EVO Plus 128GB MicroSDXC Memory Card Review
     Thu, Mar 30 2017 | 3:39P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When the Samsung 128GB Pro+ Class 10 microSDXC memory card came out in March 2016 it had wicked fast sequential speeds of 95 MB/s Read and 90 MB/s Write with an MSRP of $129.99. Over the past year the price on that card designed to be used by prosumers in action cameras, DSLRs, high-end smartphones, and Tablet PCs has fallen down to $84.00 shipped. We have a feeling that price might drop a little more as today Samsung introduced the equally impressive Samsung Pro EVO Plus 128GB microSDXC memory card. This brand new model in the more affordable thanks to the lower $99.99 MSRP and features sequential transfer speeds of up to 100 MB/s Read and 90 MB/s Write. That makes the Samsung EVO Plus the fastest microSDXC solution offered by Samsung...

Overall the GALAX GeForce GTX 1060 OC 6GB makes a very solid choice for anyone looking for a GTX 1060 based graphics card. It has a solid build and blends perfectly to any case with its black PCB design and delivers performance to match its looks.

Posted by: STAFF
With the ROG STRIX Z270G Gaming, ASUS has a well equipped micro-ATX motherboard in its portfolio, which comes with a bunch of interesting features. There are for example two M.2 Gen 3 x4 slots and an internal USB 3.1 connector. Apart from that ASUS refined the design of their STRIX Gaming series motherboards, removing all the orange accents that we've seen on X99 STRIX Gaming products.

 [LATEST]  Ryzen 7’s 8 cores and 16 threads
     Thu, Mar 30 2017 | 3:07P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"What is important now is that AMD takes this momentum with Ashes of the Singularity and actually does something with it. Many of you will recognize Ashes as the flagship title for Mantle when AMD made that move to change the programming habits and models for developers, and though Mantle would eventually become Vulkan and drive DX12 development, it did not foretell an overall shift as it hoped to. Can AMD and its developer relations team continue to make the case that spending time and money (which is what 400 developer hours equates to) to make specific performance enhancements for Ryzen processors is in the best interest of everyone? We’ll soon find out."

 [LATEST]  AMD Ryzen Game Optimization Begins:
     Thu, Mar 30 2017 | 3:06P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD captured the attention of PC gamers and performance enthusiasts everywhere with the launch of its Ryzen 7 series processors. The trio of 8-core chips take on Intel's venerable Core i7 series at the high-end of its product stack and forthcoming Ryzen 5 Series CPUs from AMD are expected to compete with Intel's Core i mid-range products. However, with the extra attention and lime light AMD garnered, came significant scrutiny as well. And with any entirely new platform architecture, there are bound to be "corner cases" and a few performance anomalies -- as was the case with the now infamous "1080p gaming" situation with Ryzen. Today, we have some early proof-positive of that Ryzen gaming can be optimized, as Oxide Games, in concert with AMD, released a patch for its title Ashes Of The Singularity. Ashes has been a "poster child" game engine of sorts for AMD Radeon graphics over the years (especially with respect to DX12) and it was one that ironically showed some of the wildest (negative) variations in Ryzen CPU performance versus Intel processors...

 [LATEST]  Technology and Manufacturing Day
     Thu, Mar 30 2017 | 3:05P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As process sizes grow smaller and smaller, Intel believes that the true characteristics of those technology advances are being clouded by an over-reliance on a single nanometer figure. At its Technology and Manufacturing Day this week, the company defended its process leadership and proposed fresh metrics that could more accurately describe what a given process is capable of.
