MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G
     Thu, Dec 25 2014 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Thanks to the Twin Frozr V cooling solution, 6+2 phase VRM, and Military Class components, MSI's GTX 970 Gaming 4G delivers excellent overclocking results all the way around. This card is the highest clocking card I have tested to date, reaching boost clock speeds on the core over 1600MHz and over 2050MHz on the 4GB of GDDR5 memory. What this can do for you is generate an increased level of FPS that drives performance to a level close to if not equal to the results of the GTX 980 Gaming 4G. In the 3DMark Fire Strike test the GTX 970 Gaming 4G outperformed a stock GTX 980. That is pretty impressive, to say the least. Doing some quick polls around different websites it seems that the 1607MHz clock on this core seems to be at the upper end of the range for overclocking on air, with the majority of clock speeds in the mid 1500MHz range. Still not bad.”

Intel Octacore i7-5960X Haswell-E Review Part I
     Thu, Dec 25 2014 | 4:18A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Bye bye Ivy Bridge-E, welcome 22nm successor Haswell-E and it is more than a new processor architecture; DDR4 memory support is finally here. Now in contradiction to other launch articles and due to time constraints the exploring of Intel's latest marvel will be spread out over a few parts. Having just received the sample from Intel a few days back it was nearly impossible to properly explore the new architecture. First of all our official Intel sample was lost for over a week in the Benelux Bermuda Triangle; secondly the main motherboard manufacturer which promised us a board for this article had hardly any sample stock. This Haswell-E launch seemed a bit doomed from the start. So in Part 1 we will just provide you with a quick comparison versus the previous generations we have in the MadShrimps Lab. Enlighten you with some insights on how the brand new DDR4 memory behaves versus the high end Quad Channel DDR3 counterparts. More testing is in progress and results will be covered in upcoming updates

Posted by: STAFF
From a company that previously gave us Vector’s, Vertex’s and was occasionally high on Octane for Agility we now have the ARC 100, an SSD that sounds like something that would be used to fuse metals together. As a welder the OCZ ARC 100 is pretty useless, but as a budget focused SSD it has potential.
