Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Founders Edition
     Mon, Nov 12 2018 | 4:52P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Nvidia RTX series has been out for about a month now and was met with a ton of criticism from the community. Firstly because of the price as now the flagship card is at a price point of where the TITAN model normally existed. Add to that the fact that anyone purchasing an RTX model card still is basically betting on the delivery of developers with the new features that RTX cards have that make them special such as DLSS and RTX or DXR performance. The specialized Tensor and RT cores in the Turing based GPUs are very powerful as we showed the capability in the RTX launch article. If you have not read that yet, it's worth a read here. Now we are met with the RTX 2070 which I briefly mentioned in the original coverage and this is targeted to be the more value friendly option with Ray Tracing capabilities built in. Thankfully the RTX 2070 is “targeted” by Nvidia at 1440p gaming so we should see less of the issues we saw with RTX 2080/Ti where it could suffer due to potential bottlenecks at lower common resolutions. The RTX 2070 does carry the same memory size and bus of the bigger brother RTX 2080 so memory should be the least limiting factor for this GPU is my hope.

Silverstone Lucid LD01
     Mon, Nov 12 2018 | 4:52P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lucid LD01 from Silverstone tries to ditch the plastic and move to a mix relying heavily on steel and tempered glass for an understated high quality look and feel. It clearly caters to those who'd like to transcend the classic use of steel and plastic panels and want simple but effective, functional designs and features.

Intel Core i9-9900K Processor Review
     Mon, Nov 12 2018 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With AMD’s second generation Ryzen launch we saw the Ryzen 7 2700X take the top spot ahead of Intel’s Core i7-8700K in terms of overall performance. Intel still had stronger performance in games, but the Ryzen 7 2700X was very attractive to not just gamers, but creators, designers, etc. With 8-cores and 16-threads it really is a great processor. Now it is time for Intel to strike back and today we have probably the most anticipated Intel product of the year, the Core i9-9900K. This is Intel’s first 8-core, 16-thread mainstream processor, packing in clock speeds of 3.6 GHz base and a single-core turbo frequency of 5.0 GHz. Intel calls the Core i9-9900K the world’s best processor for gaming and today we are going to see if that is true and how it stacks up against other processors out there."

Intel 9th Generation Core i9 9900K
     Sun, Nov 11 2018 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”The one big disappointment I had was that when it came to overclocking this sample tapped out at just 50Mhz over the single core Turbo Boost 2.0 max clock speed of 5Ghz. Yeah right! Disappointment at a legit 5+Ghz all core clock speed sounds a little jaded I know but I was hoping for more. No matter the voltage or configuation of of bclock and multplier would get the Core i9 9900K over the 5050Mhz barrier with any sort of stability. I could boot and run short tests at 5200Mhz using 1.4v. With this voltage applied throttling was not far off. Nor were crashes and instability.”
