    AMD Catalyst 11.1a Hot-Fix Drivers Coming Today!

    Ditch my current CPU/RAM/Mobo for SB?

    I know this has been asked a lot lately and after doing some heavy contemplating/researching I still can't decide.... IF I do I would just need to purchase a new SB CPU/Mobo as I have 8GB G Skill RAM sitting here. Just want some new hardware to play with for now :laugh: Also I'm currently...

    ATI/AMD HD6950 unlock potential intentional?

    Do you think the HD6950 unlock potential was intentional? Like to here your thoughts yes/no and possible reason(s) I believe it was left open to help boost sales, even though that would hurt the sales of the HD6970 but.... 6970 would still reign supreme performer ultimately it would overclock...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 695...

    Did I just get a HD6950 with a revised PCB board?

    I wouldn't worry about it... I have 2 XFX 6950's sucessfully unlocked and running 900/1400 auto fan. One is a V1.0 and the other is a V1.1 didn't notice it until this thread. Sorry about the crap quality photo but my Nikon battery was dead had to use my phone cam: These were purchased at...

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    I guess it really depends on luck of the draw, although it's still too early to tell for those who have been successful. Just like not all CPU's will overclock using low voltage or even high clocks with moderate to high voltage.

    How to enable additional shaders on Radeon HD 6950

    Thanks to all that made this flash/mod possible! I successfully flashed two XFX 6950's with XFX 6970 BIOS :D Torture tested them for 3 days now, super stable even @900/1400 "like a rock" I was really on the fence about 2 GTX 580's and 2 HD6970's for my 3x 30" 3007's and this mod made my...

    i7 920 vs 1090T

    Lol... I laughed pretty hard on that one (really) but you make a valid point. Please vote on the setup that should be kept. I've had the this particular Intel CPU/board for roughly 5-6 months approx, the AMD CPU/board/RAM recently acquired on a local trade/sale deal about a month maybe two ago.

    i7 920 vs 1090T

    Hi, I'm in a real toss up between and need the pros feedback: Problem is I love both setups.... but one setup MUST go! i7 920 @4.2GHz 1.28v 6GB DDR3 1600MHz P6T Deluxe board and 1090T @4GHz 1.38v 8GB DDR3 1600MHz Crosshair IV board Rig will be used for gaming, multimedia, some video...

    Which x58 MATX and why

    Forgot to mention but yes I think I would have to agree.... That is the reason why I'm running my ram at lower than rated speed but with tighter timings. I tried once or twice to get to 2GHz (which is only a 134MHz OC) with no go but I'm still very content.

    Which x58 MATX and why

    My vote goes to the RII GENE, although I have not used other mATX X58 boards. I can tell you about the RIIG, PROS: very solid board, looks great, overclocks great, performance is very satisfying, tons of bios options for tweaking, Asus does offer advanced replacement on this board, SLI and...

    How realistic/reliable is this review??

    Correct, if I was to run them I would definitely run CF as I run the 285's in SLI. Need some real horse power to push my XHD3000 @2560*1600

    How realistic/reliable is this review??

    Interesting to say the least. I don't think the 4890 was suppose to be a competitor to the GTX 285

    How realistic/reliable is this review??

    http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/video/display/gtx285sli-hd4890cf.html I find myself in a little doubt as this review shows the 4890CF beating up on the GTX285 SLI... 4890CF matching and being better then the latter?
