    (Videocardz) Z170 motherboard modded to support Intel Core i3-8350K

    https://videocardz.com/74298/z170-motherboard-modded-to-support-intel-core-i3-8350k The motherboard used for this mod is definitely not a cheap one. MSI’s Z170A Xpower Titanium could probably even support 8700K, thanks to modified power delivery for overclocking. The modder has successfully...

    AMD vs Nvidia driver overhead test

    Some interesting video demonstrate driver efficiency in DX11 when CPU become bottleneck due to low setting + low resolution. GTA V 390 vs 770 driver overhead test GTA V 390 vs 770 CPU overhead test BF4 390 DX11 vs 390 Mantle vs 770 DX11 driver overhead test Nvidia solve this problem...

    Is it true that strong CPU is need in multi-GPU setup ?

    for 290X / 780 ti 4ways CF/SLI need strong CPU in singlethread or multithread or both ? Really need 3930K/4930K ? Some game not scale well with cores like DX9 games or some bad optimize game or if game cannot use more than 4 core anyway (like most today game ) , in this type of game 4930K still...

    Look like I win a silicon lottery

    L313B428 is really kick ass batch :toast: Temp is not good since I live in tropical ambient (32 Celcius when test). Cooling is CM Seidon 240M (240mm Radiator with 2 Fans). I plan to delid when have time to buy vice. :nutkick:

    Wonder about 3dmark06 cpu test with modern cpu

    Why cpu test in 06 still lag (2-3fps) with modern cpu like haswell and why it perform worse on fx system , is it heavily rely on floating point ? For 3dmark11 or firestrike my 4770k do 33-35fps in physics test. So much better than 06.

    Wonder about memory usage

    From Tom's hardware article http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/graphics-card-myths,3694-6.html Hitman Absolution use VRAM 5171MB @ 8 x MSAA 3840 x 2160 resolution. But the game itself is 32bit so I wonder why it can access virtual memory > 4GB Since VRAM is one part of the virtual memory...

    What game/program already optimize for AVX2/FMA3 in Haswell ?

    Like a topic said. I know GRID 2 has AVX binary but is it optimize for AVX2 by default too ?

    R9-290 vs GTX 780 clock for clock ?

    If memory bandwidth equal (I know 290 has 512bit but 780 just 384bit so it can't directly compare memory speed). , clock equal then which is better ? Let's say possible OC : R9-290 @ 1100Mhz vs GTX 780 @ 1100Mhz. Another Q. what is average OC between those card ? Thanks :)

    Do you think Broadwell "K Series" will still use FIVR on die.

    Haswell with FIVR is hot as hell. My cooling is CM Seidon 240M , ambient temp is ~28C Delidded 4670K with MX-4 test with normal LinX (no AVX) @ 4.5Ghz 1.17V temp is ~80C @ 4.6Ghz 1.23V temp is ~86C @ 4.7Ghz 1.29V temp is ~93C I would expect if replace TIM with LiquidPro temp should be...

    Share R9-290X price in your country.

    I live in Thailand R9-290X cost 25,000 Baht (1$ = 31 Baht) So 25,000 ฿ = 806 $

    Why Intel focus on power consumption rather than performance ?

    As everyone know since Ivy Bridge desktop CPU are focus on reduce power usage and gain little performance each year. Some games still need huge singlethread performance such as - Totalwar Series especially Rome II - SC2 - The Sims 3 all expansion with tons of furniture in house (crazy CPU...

    7970 overclock question

    My card is HIS 7970 IceQX2 (non Ghz). 1.After try many BIOS , I cannot break 1150Mhz on core regardless of how many voltage (@ 1150Mhz stable voltage is 1.263V) actually it can go to 1220Mhz with 1.32V but not stable (lot of glitch , snow dot , chess table etc). Is this limit because chip...
