AMD Radeon RX 480 – the new driver should fix all
     Thu, Jul 21 2016 | 9:01A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
we just released our new messures on Radeon RX 480. We renew all performance-benchmarks, but too all our tests about the power consumption, to check, if the new driver of AMD brings now the RX 480 into the PCI-Express-Specifications.

GTX 1070 SLI Testing @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Jul 21 2016 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Well, I finally got my hands on two GTX 1070’s and you guys know what that means. As soon as I finished up writing about the second card, I jumped right into SLI testing. With the card availability being tough getting two matching cards might be tough, so before you do that I thought it would be good to see just how much you can benefit from running two cards. On top of that, I wanted to find out if you are better off getting a single GTX 1080 over the GTX 1070 pair. So I ran the cards through our normal benchmark suite. Unlike a card review, though, I jump right into the testing and for the most part I let the numbers speak for themselves. So hang on.

In this article, we will examine the drop in performance caused by the reduced power consumption. Then we will compare it to the boost in performance from the Radeon Software 16.7.1 driver. Check it out!

Core i7-6900K vs Core i7-5960X - 2D Performance
     Wed, Jul 20 2016 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is a variety of customer groups in need of as much processing power as possible. Especially in the field of content creation, which includes editing pictures and videos or even rendering a complex scenery with beautiful effects, performance improvements quickly translate into higher income by the end of the month. With this series of articles we're going to compare two processors. The CPUs tested are being run at stock clocks as well as overclocked and apart from that we will also vary the memory frequency. It is our goal to show which CPU is how much faster or slower than another one.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Review: Pascal Goes Mainstream
     Tue, Jul 19 2016 | 12:24P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A couple of weeks back, just in time to rain on AMD’s Radeon RX 480 parade, NVIDIA revealed a few details about the GeForce GTX 1060. We didn’t have actual performance numbers to share, but NVIDIA revealed the GTX 1060 Founder’s Edition’s pricing, core count, clocks, memory configuration, TDP, and physical characteristics, and claimed the card would offer performance in the same class as the GeForce GTX 980. Considering the fact that the GP106 GPU at the heart of the GeForce GTX 1060 had roughly half of the resources of NVIDIA’s current flagship GeForce GTX 1080, and NVIDIA put the 1080 up against a pair of GTX 980s in SLI at its launch event, claiming the GTX 1060 would perform on par with a single GTX 980 wasn’t a shock. If you wanted to know exactly how the GeForce GTX 1060 performed, however, we didn’t have much meat to share. Until today...

EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 SC Gaming ACX 3.0 Review
     Tue, Jul 19 2016 | 12:24P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Snippet: "As the 10 series GPU stack for Nvidia is getting filled out partners are releasing their custom cards. The current top of the line card is the 1080 but with just a small step down we have the 1070 at a much more reasonable price. In this case we are referring to the EVGA 1070 SC ACX 3.0 edition graphics card which falls into a nice price vs performance bracket."

Tesoro GRAM Spectrum RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
     Tue, Jul 19 2016 | 12:20P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it is time to replace a keyboard, everybody tends to have their favorite, and will find many excuses not to look at other models. If a keyboard has lasted for a while, you are probably used to how it feels, and responds, so your first instinct is to go with one that you know. Tesoro is a fairly new company that is building PC hardware, and so you might not be familiar with them; as such might overlook them for the more familiar manufacturers; I know that’s what I did when I replaced my last gaming keyboard. So when Tesoro offered their latest keyboard, the GRAM Spectrum RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard, I was excited to try it out.

QNAP TurboNAS TS-531P-8G NAS Server Review
     Tue, Jul 19 2016 | 12:19P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Can a NAS server using an ARM Cortex A15 processor by a relatively unknown player like Annapurna Labs compete with all the Intel & AMD based models in the market? QNAP certainly seems to think so since they released their latest TS-531P with it and we're here to test their choice for ourselves.

Crucial Ballistix Elite DDR4-2666 Memory Review
     Tue, Jul 19 2016 | 12:19P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial sent us a sample of their DDR4-2666MHz 16GB Ballistix Elite RAM. Crucial Ballistix Elite is their premium memory line, with speeds ranging from 2666MHz to 3200MHz, and memory capacities from 4GB to 32GB in single to quad channel kits. Crucial is pushing the speed envelope with their line of Ballistix Elite memory kits well past the DDR4 standard of 2133MHz. In this article for Benchmark Reviews, I’m going to see if higher bandwidth memory makes a difference. Will Crucial Ballistix Elite deliver, or fall short of the mark? Let’s find out!

GeForce GTX 1060 against the likes of the Radeon RX 480
     Tue, Jul 19 2016 | 12:18P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"But at the end of the day, the GeForce GTX 1060 is here and it is indeed an impressive graphics card for the money. The reference design we reviewed today is a good showcase for the GP106 platform but it’s not a card I recommend unless a gamer needs the specific blower design used on it. Partner options for the GTX 1060 look to be plentiful and varied; a great combination for consumers looking to buy."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Founders Edition Video Card
     Tue, Jul 19 2016 | 12:18P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”When looking at the noise profile and cooling performance of the GTX 1060 Founders Edition, NVIDIA went with a design that is 50% larger than the one used on the GTX 960. This increase in size helps keep the temperatures to a reasonable level on the GTX 1060 Founders Edition. When not set to 100% of the fan speed profile, the GTX 1060 is dead silent while operating. Cranking up the fan speed increases the noise level some, but not to a level that is objectionable. The one gripe I have about the cooling solution is the lack of a window over the cooling solution to maximize the efficiency. My sample did suffer from some blow by, reducing overall thermal performance somewhat.”

When it comes to reference cards look for the custom cooler it will hands down no discussion always win. Throw in a backplate and orange stripes and there is no contest.

NVIDIA and EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 Video Card Review
     Tue, Jul 19 2016 | 12:17P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 features the brand new Pascal GP106 GPU that is made on the 16nm FinFET manufacturing process by TSMC. For this launch article we’ll be looking at the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Founders Edition graphics card ($299) and the EVGA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB SuperClocked retail card ($259 before a $10 mail-in rebate). This is EVGA’s standard Superclock edition card that features their ACX 2.0 GPU cooler with a single fan design that puts the card at only 7.1-inches in length. Read on to find out how these cards perform!
