    The gpu is still on the same die as the cpu.

    AMD Dragged to Court over Core Count on "Bulldozer"

    You're hilarious. x264 only uses opencl for frame look ahead and even then, the boost is very small. There is no gpu in the fx-8150 anyways.

    Andyson Titanium N 700 W

    Why is there no direct comparison to the ax760i in the graphs? Is it because it's in a different price bracket? I'm looking to get another ax760i but this seems to be much cheaper, yet lower rated in overall performance in the final graph.

    Calling all MSI GTX 980 Gaming 4G owners!

    After modding: So this shows the true power consumption is around 300 watts under furmark. Can bios editors adjust fan curves? I don't mind putting it to 100% fan speed to try to avoid the thermal limit.

    Calling all MSI GTX 980 Gaming 4G owners!

    My card will be arriving in the mail soon. I am wondering how power restricted this card is when running Furmark. I could test this myself but I'd rather not test -> do this mod -> test again since I have such a small case and I'm rather lazy. So if you have an unmodded card, please run Furmark...

    FSP Announces 80 PLUS Titanium Power Supplies

    Finally efficient low power PSUs! I've waited a long time for something like this. Should be fine for the most power hungry single GPU system.

    Gigabyte Unveils GeForce GTX 750 Series OC Edition Graphics Cards

    Do these cards have the power limiter too? It would make the pci-e power connector rather pointless if it did.

    ASUS R9 290X DirectCU II 4096 MB

    Even though this card draws more power at its maximum, is it because it has higher sustained core speeds than the reference version?

    Seagate 600 RAID0 low 4k write performance

    I've switched to a 64kb stripe and other than lowering latency slightly (could be within margin of error) it did nothing.

    4770k pcb damage just cosmetic?

    Hi, I delidded my cpu but accidentally slipped due to someone talking to me mid-operation. I'm wondering if this damage is severe? I've looked at it with a magnifying glass even more zoomed in then these pics, and the scratch to the left with the traces still seem to be there, just exposed. The...

    Seagate 600 RAID0 low 4k write performance

    Hi, I have a 4770k at stock speeds on a z87i-deluxe, and two Seagate 600 240gb ssds on the intel sata ports with a 128kb stripe. I've made sure to enable write caching and turn off windows write-cache buffer flushing. However, my 4k write speeds aren't faster than a single drive. I also have all...

    AMD Radeon R9 290X 4096 MB

    Got that from a thread in xs. I'm pretty sure if watercooled, then power consumption will be much much lower.

    Radeon R9 290X Clock Speeds Surface, Benchmarked

    I hope this means high overclockability... Core clocks seem low, and memory clocks are low probably because of bus instability due to so many traces.

    My son is going to buy said computer below.

    If you were able to educate your son a lot, how do you not know the answer to the problem? As above, more specs are needed to arrive to a conclusion.
