    Windows 10 build 1903 disables my CPU Overclock (i7 6950X)

    Hi, My CPU i7 6950x is originally overclocked through the bios @ 4.3GHz, since I have upgraded to the last build of Windows 10, the overclocking is not working, the frequency is reset to its original frequency, so my CPU is around 3.5GHz... The Overclocking in the bios is still set to 4.3GHz. I...

    ZOTAC Reveals Their Take on the NVLink Bridge

    Well, SLI most best performances can only be seen with 3DMARK but absent on the majority of games... Also, it is recommended to disable SLI if you play with DXR enabled... So what is it for then on RTX GPU if we can't gain more performances with DXR enabled ?

    Bad Times for Motherboard and GPU Makers: Oversupply and High Prices in 1H19

    Why would you buy a brand new GTX10xx, a 2 years old gen at full retail price or an overpriced RTX with DXR that makes Games unplayable ? The solution ? Just do like me, I've just bought an used GTX1080Ti (ZOTAC GTX 1080ti AMP EXTREME CORE EDITION) for just about $400 with a remaining 2 years...

    Intel Core i9-9900K

    Yes indeed, am I the only one to be disappointed by this CPU ? The scaling in Multithread is very poor, some other tests have shown a huge decrease in speed when used with heavy Multithreaded tasks... If OC is the only way to keep high frequency, a very expensive cooler will be needed and a...

    Intel Officially Launches 9th Generation Processors Including the 8-Core / 16-Thread Core i9-9900K

    In Europe, all retailers sell it at 700€ !!! just overpriced. This CPU is not worth its price. Already for less than 550€ price you get a R7 2700+MB+DDR4 16GB... 9900K+MB Z390 = R7 2700+MB B450+DDR4 16GB+GTX1070Ti... *Prices are in Euros.

    Intel CFO and Interim CEO Writes an Open Letter on Processor Supply

    It's even worse in Europe by hitting 525 € ($610). This letter from Intel sounds so hypocrites. They are in the mud up to the neck, to be polite, if not more. Intel just deserves what is happening to them. They already had a lesson with Pentium 4, it wasn't a lesson learned, so now it is even...

    What processor do you use?

    You still have the 1900X, but I think the 1920x our the incoming 2920x will be the best choice and better value as the need of more core is still yet to prove. I am doing video editing but most of the task are handled by the GPU (I have a GTX1070) such as Encoding (HEVC 10 Bit or H264 4:2:2 /...

    What processor do you use?

    The HEDT are mostly for Workstation, more PCI Lane is also more NVME storage on board, the PCIe slot are not only for display cards and can be also use for NVMe PCI Adapter, this is the reason why I am actually on X99, more about storage so no SATA disabled when using more than one NVME storage...

    What processor do you use?

    Yes indeed the best socket with throttling CPU !!! I will never switch to X299, I prefer to switch to Threadripper, but I will never need all of those cores, but maybe I will switch to it because the 64 PCIe Lanes :) Intel is just 44 PCIe lanes, what a shame !!! And Intel ask to pay again to get...
