AMD + Microsoft Windows 8.1 = 10% Boost
     Fri, Oct 18 2013 | 4:19P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD shot us this interesting little update today; "Today, AMD published a new blog on the collaboration between Microsoft and AMD for great performance and user experience in Windows 8.1. The blog contains some interesting data points surrounding the performance differences we have observed between when AMD launched the latest A-series of APU’s and now, combining the enhancements our driver team have delivered with the work Microsoft has achieved with Windows 8.1.

Please note that the AMD A10-6800K offers a heterogeneous compute advantage of up to 13% against the >60% more expensive competitor product - and a gaming performance advantage of nearly 50%. Windows 8.1 is a free update for Windows 8 users, and can be installed through the Microsoft Store, meaning any consumer with an AMD Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) based PC can increase performance by nearly 10% simply through installing the Windows 8.1 update, and AMD’s latest Catalyst driver."

How to Overclock an Intel 4770K Guide
     Sat, Oct 05 2013 | 12:52P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel C-State allows for the CPU to lower its current frequency along with voltage. C-States vary from C0 (Operating state) down to Haswell`s new C6/C7 in which the CPU is in sleep/hibernation. By default all motherboards will have this enabled typically under the title Intel-C-State. When C-State is set to C0, the CPU will not drop voltage or frequency. This can be helpful to establish an overclock if running into stability problems. While I noticed zero negative impact on the Haswell, please be aware that using CPU Voltage Override along with enabling C-State may cause the voltage to stay constant when the CPU frequency drops. Once again this did not happen for me but with some motherboards this can be an issue. The solution is to use CPU Voltage Offset instead or disable C-State completely."
