    AMD Radeon RX 560 vs. GTX 1050

    I'm extremely disappointed. I have written Advertorials myself - and they have always been clearly marked in a way that can't be overlooked. Also none of them have been in the form of a review, which by itself is ridiculous. A review, written by the company that pays for the advertorial and...

    AMD Wants You to Choose Radeon RX 470 Over the GTX 1050 Ti, For Now

    Really? How many have you bought? I can't remember a single card that had a better price/performance ratio than the similar AMD offer. It makes sens for Nvidia, yes, but not really for the customer. Except when you need the fastest available card NOW... and in this case, financial sense has gone...

    AMD Wants You to Choose Radeon RX 470 Over the GTX 1050 Ti, For Now

    LOL. Yes, who needs comparisons or slides. All customers know all data telepathically... those cards are for the mass market, not for nerds who know the difference between CUDA cores and Stream Processors etc. Ever heard of... advertising? It seems to work for some products.

    NEW Super PI 1m scores

    Mission accomplished :) The CPU-Z voltage is off, though. It's actually close to 1.39 V.

    Share your CPUZ Benchmarks!

    Yes, I hope this CPU can break the magical 5 GHz barrier with watercooling :)

    Share your CPUZ Benchmarks!

    Here's mine. Not done overclocking yet, still waiting for my watercooling setup to arrive.

    Really new to water cooling, I need some ball park spending figures

    I don't know if this is available in your area, but this is worth a look: http://www.raijintek.com/en/products_bycategory.php?CategoryID=1&SubCategoryID=24 Very good prices around here and expandable!

    NEW Super PI 1m scores

    I'm a bit late to the party, but new system, new benchmarks. My 6700K seems to be a really great specimen - this is with air cooling (Alpenfön Brocken 2) and a quite low voltage fot that speed. Stable with Intel Burn Test, too. And yes, watercooling with 360 rad is on the way, so maybe a stable...

    Scientists find a way to see and manipulate 'quantum motion'

    Since we don't "know" much at all, all we can say is: the part of our universe we can see is at least around 14 billion years old. One step further and speculation begins. We don't know how big, how old, if our part is "normal" or "exotic" in a larger finite/infinite...

    Valve starts censoring Steam private chat messages mentioning one particular "pirate" site

    Nope. They provide services for different countries and some countries still have very tough privacy protection laws. Just because you are using the chat doesn't mean Steam is allowed to listen in and delete messages.

    Windows 8.1, and Why You Should Let Go of Windows 7

    I'm using Windows 8 as a heavy desktop user. I'm self-employed, working on the PC using mostly desktop programs and if Windows 8 would be worse than Windows 7 for that, I wouldn't use it. It's my money and my time that would be wasted. What totally makes me want to do a giant facepalm are...

    AMD to Fix GCN Latency Issues with Driver Updates

    Well, THEN it is a real problem for you, no doubt about that. I just wondered because if it would be a huge big problem for everybody, it would have been noticed earlier and would be headlines everywhere. So it's a real problem for people with real good perception.

    AMD to Fix GCN Latency Issues with Driver Updates

    Now, I don't care about AMD vs. Nvidia or AMD vs. Intel or any of that crap... but if I need a high-speed camera to detect latencies I can't notice on my own and which therefore didn't bother me at all, wouldn't a fix for this "problem" be just as undetectable for me without a high-speed camera...

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 1536 MB Fermi

    Probably the best magazine for professionals in Germany has reviewed the Geforce GTX 480, too... and they are writing: "Die GeForce GTX 480 besitzt einen sechs- und einen achtpoligen Stromanschluss und soll laut Nvidia maximal 250 Watt aufnehmen. In unseren Messungen traten jedoch sogar Spitzen...

    the old farts club

    Hi there, I think I do qualify as an old fart - I'm 40 (that's decimal) and I have been fiddling around with computers for 26 years now. Totally self-educated with no certifactes or qualifications and still working in the IT area for more than a decade now at companies like NEC, Lionhead Studios...

    RealTemp General Discussion

    I have rebooted 4 times now, just to test it, and every single time I was able to arrange the Real Temp temps without any problems, using your 3.20 Beta. Can't be coincidence. I use a different color for each core for easy sorting, though :)

    RealTemp General Discussion

    Thanks, good idea, but a bit too big for my liking. But funnily enough, with this version I managed to get the systray temps in the right order, never could do that with the older (official) one.

    RealTemp General Discussion

    This is the first thing in Windows 7 I don't like. For now, I only use one temp, core 0, which is usally the hottest. Hm, maybe someone at some point will write a little gadget to show the Real Temp data, so it's possible to turn off the systray icons. Thanks for your fast answer and for your...

    RealTemp General Discussion

    In Windows 7 the sys tray temperatures are not in order any more, and even if you try to sort them by drag and drop, they jump around and unsort themselves. It was Core 0,1,2,3 and now it's 1,2,3,0 per default...

    which CPU should i buy?

    I recommended the Phenom II 940, too - and I'm using an Intel Q6600. But I just built a machine for someone on a budget and it was AMD all the way, CPU, chipset on mainboard and a HD 4870. I have used ATI, Nvidia, Intel and AMD in my time and I never chose anything because of the manufacturer...

    which CPU should i buy?

    I would strongly recommend the Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition, a nice AM2+ Mainboard and lots of DDR2-RAM, preferably 8 GB. That will be enough RAM for several years and a very good Quadcore with overclocking potential. For most things except games this will be a monster machine. And for gaming...

    www.gpu-z.de // is this legit? Probably not

    GameStar has put it into their best hardware tools as well: http://www.gamestar.de/hardware/specials/1948725/die_25_besten_hardware_tools_p9.html With a proper link.

    I can confirm this - and I am a native German ;)
