AMD FX8370E Review
     Sat, Mar 21 2015 | 12:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD has updated its FX range of CPUs with three new models that use Socket AM3+. FX-8370 slots in above FX-8350, just as you would expect, but the real interest lies with FX-8370E and FX-8320E with a TDP that has been reduced from 125W to 95W. That ‘E’ suffix appears to stand for Eco.

Today is an important one for the company as they expand their Maxwell portfolio, releasing not one but two new models – the GTX970 and GTX980. We look at the reference GTX980 in this specific analysis.

AMD’s plans to counter NVIDIA’s launch of G-Sync
     Sat, Mar 21 2015 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
FreeSync: What began as merely a term for AMD’s plans to counter NVIDIA’s launch of G-Sync (and mocking play on NVIDIA’s trade name) has finally come to fruition, keeping the name - and the attitude. As we have discussed, AMD’s Mantle API was crucial to pushing the industry in the correct and necessary direction for lower level APIs, though NVIDIA’s G-Sync deserves the same credit for recognizing and imparting the necessity of a move to a variable refresh display technology. Variable refresh displays can fundamentally change the way that PC gaming looks and feels when they are built correctly and implemented with care, and we have seen that time and time again with many different G-Sync enabled monitors at our offices. It might finally be time to make the same claims about FreeSync.

Asus X99 Deluxe Motherboard Review
     Fri, Mar 20 2015 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel’s Haswell-E Core i7 5960X is an all-round powerhouse, there’s no question about that. But a powerful chip is only a portion of the battle – an accompanying motherboard and high-speed RAM are essential in exploiting the processor’s dizzying multi-core performance. Enter Asus’ showcase motherboard for the latest HEDT chipset – the X99 Deluxe. Packed to the brim with a variety of overclocking, general usage, and connectivity features, can the Asus X99 Deluxe show us exactly how the six- and eight-core Haswell-E chips should be partnered?

MSI X99S Gaming 7 Motherboard Review
     Fri, Mar 20 2015 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the X99 platform and its plentiful PCIe connectivity form a strong gaming foundation, the cost of an LGA2011-3 motherboard, DDR4 memory, and the Haswell-E CPU will put a considerable dent in any buyer’s pocket. So when we see a gaming-orientated motherboard offering 3-way graphics capability, eight-core CPU support, and an enhanced audio solution, features take precedence and make the HEDT platform seem a more alluring investment. Hitting the entry-level cohort of X99's product range, can MSI’s £200 X99S Gaming 7 prove that the HEDT platform’s motherboard is at least one area where money can be saved?

Posted by: STAFF
Face it not all of us can afford a couple of GTX 980s. most of us would balk at buying a single 980. More likely we would indulge ourselves with a GTX 970 but then the reality of bills, keeping the fridge full, gas money, those thoughts kick in. Nvidia and EVGA have you covered with their sweet spot strategy. Maxwell GPUs in the $210 dollar price range with all the Maxwell technology tucked inside."
