    Welcome to the all new TechPowerUp, a refreshing redesign of your favorite place on the web for PC hardware and technology.

    Our brand new site design modernizes the site, makes it more usable, while not deviating from our focus on simplicity, without confusing it with minimalism. The site features clean and bright elements that are ready for ultra high-definition displays, and devices with high-density screens, such as iPad with Retina display, and the new breed of smartphones with 1080p displays. Our site not only scales up with some of these devices, but also its elements keep up with high-density displays.

    Our new site design introduces a suite of new features to our main sections, including Reviews, Downloads, Case-mod Gallery, and our four databases. The Reviews section gets more usable summary lists, the Downloads section makes it easier to find what you're looking for. The Case-mod gallery is optimized for high-resolution images, and features an improved gallery view. We've always considered our four databases - Reviews, VGA BIOS, GPU, and CPU, our strengths, and optimized each with unique sets of new features that greatly improve usability. All the content is timed to the users' local time.

    Work on the all new TechPowerUp began in early-2013, and was designed by taking inputs and feedback from all of our departments. In April, we opened the new design up for testing by the TechPowerUp Forums community, and took a great deal of feedback from it.

    We're extremely happy to launch our new interface to the web, designed by everyone who holds the site dear.

    At this time there are no plans to change the forum skin, design, user interface or anything else on the forums.

    Please report any issues you encounter in this thread.

    It looks pretty!

    Usually I hate new designs (Microsoft.com and anandtech are the most recent examples) but your redesign is very nice.

    I don't like the condensed font. It feels cramped and not pleasing to read, just like Engadget's title font.

    a bit off topic, but I like anandtech's new theme and Microsoft's site is very simple and neat, just like the old TPU.

    Horrible the condensed font

    The condensed font make my eyes hurt, bad choice(and I work in design field), the rest it is ok.

    User avatars and information like post count, join date etc. are gone. Also the font is harder to read.

    EDIT: avatars and user info only viewable when browsing via the forums not the mainpage.

    Same here, I find it a lot harder to read compared to the old design. Font too small, Background too bright and just generally hurts my eyes. Everything else looks nice and fresh though.

    New homepage hunting for me :(

    I think the website actually looks good. Updates to websites make me cringe, but this one was enough to make me want to register and post this comment.

    Is it the news story font that's bothering some people? Maybe if it was slightly on the grey scale the contrast would soften up, idk.

    that's a known issue. i'm undecided whether this should be added. no smileys will keep it kinda clean and keep things more simple
