    Middle-Earth Shadow of War: Performance Analysis

    You do know that performance reviewers close every background task that they can, right? I think they even test on clean installs if they can (which is the proper way anyway). Just because they say 8 GB for minimum, doesn't mean it would run fine. There are games like deus ex: MD where RAM...

    Middle-Earth Shadow of War: Performance Analysis

    Would you kindly publish system RAM usage numbers in your game reviews? It's a very useful information, specially for those who do not have 16 GB or 12 GB of RAM.

    Intel Core i7-8700K 3.7 GHz

    Let me word it better. What was the sustained boost under cinebench MT? The reason that I'm asking is that some reviewers ran their benches with multi core enhancment enabled, which meant all 6 cores were locked to 4.7 GHz, all the time, even under cinebench MT.

    @W1zzard What was the sustained turbo frequency in benchmarks? 4.3 GHz?

    AMD Radeon Vega 64 Outperforms NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti in Forza Motorsport 7, DX 12

    It doesn't matter if they are all x86. Intel and AMD CPUs have different architectures, and optimizing for one does not mean it'd run just as well on the other. Same applies to GPUs. Consoles use AMD GPUs, so when porting to PC, developers have to optimize for nvidia too, specially with DX12...

    AMD Radeon Vega 64 Outperforms NVIDIA GTX 1080 Ti in Forza Motorsport 7, DX 12

    These just seem off. 1080 Ti is usually about 20-25% faster than GTX 1080 at 1440, yet here it's just ~9%?! IMO pascal is under performing here. It could be a driver issue, or game's optimization, or both. It might also be possible that the FPS meter software they're using is causing a drop...

    Destiny 2 Beta: Performance Analysis

    @W1zzard Could you post the total system RAM usage while gaming (not the game process memory usage), please?

    Intel Core "Coffee Lake" Lineup Specs Confirmed in Leaked Distributor Event

    There is a certain clock threshold where beyond that point the processor's power consumption will jump considerably; that's why something like 7700K consumes so much power compared to 7700 or 7600K or even 1800X sometimes. There are cases where 4 high clocked cores can consume more power than 8...

    Intel Core "Coffee Lake" Lineup Specs Confirmed in Leaked Distributor Event

    I don't know where this notion that core i9s always consume more power comes from. In the majority of reviews 7900X consumes less than a 1920X. Yes, it has 2 less cores but has higher clocks, so it's sort of comparable. I, personally, have seen only two reviews that show 7900X consuming more...

    Intel Core "Coffee Lake" Lineup Specs Confirmed in Leaked Distributor Event

    That's not exactly true. Just compare 1500X and 1300X to 7600K (which is quite fare; same number of cores, and the i5 even has higher TDP and clocks). The i5 consume less. https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/Ryzen_3_1300X/18.html

    Intel Core "Coffee Lake" Lineup Specs Confirmed in Leaked Distributor Event

    It's basic math. I wrote "more", meaning an increase from the base value. 6 + 33.3% = 7.998 ~ 8 9 + 33.3% = 11.997 ~ 12 The reason that i3 is now closer to i5 is because of the doubled cores, which means the cache was also doubled, but the per core ratio is still the same: Dual i3: 4 MB -> 2...

    Intel Core "Coffee Lake" Lineup Specs Confirmed in Leaked Distributor Event

    Actually the L3 gap ratio is still the same as it was before: 4 cores: 8 MB, 6 MB; 33.3% more 6 cores: 12 MB, 9 MB; 33.3% more

    More Details Surface on Coffee Lake Lineup: i3-8350K, i3-8100 Specs Leaked Again

    Who's "buddy"? Could you post the power consumption numbers of that OC? Comparing a VERY high clocked 4 core to a moderately clocked 8 core in order to compare their architectural efficiencies is useless. Processors have an efficiency sweet spot and they'll start to consume FAR more power...

    More Details Surface on Coffee Lake Lineup: i3-8350K, i3-8100 Specs Leaked Again

    Compare 1300x to i5 7500, which are quite comparable from a configuration standpoint, and you'd see that it's quite slower and yet consumes quite more. https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/AMD/Ryzen_3_1300X/18.html Comparing intel's HEDT platform to AMD's non-HEDT for power consumption is a...

    Palit GTX 1050 Ti KalmX 4 GB

    No, it's ok. I just didn't realize a mere board difference could change the power consumption by a noticeable margin. If so then perhaps it shouldn't be listed. You know best.

    Palit GTX 1050 Ti KalmX 4 GB

    Noise was never mentioned here. Would the power differ that much between different boards even with the same factory clock speeds?

    The card I linked to has the same base and boost clockspeeds as the reference card. What else are you looking for?

    Thank you, but how much is the overall system usage? The specific process memory usage is in some cases not completely accurate.

    Prey Performance Analysis

    Would it be possible to add system RAM usage numbers to your games analysis? More and more games are requiring a minimum of 8GB and recommending 16GB. It would be really useful to know if a game goes past 8GB and by how much.

    AMD Ryzen Reviews and Shipping Coming on February 28th

    If the single threaded performance is competitive with intel, I'd go head first for a Ryzen 3, which I assume should be able to, more or less, compete with i5 at a near i3 price. Two cores is not enough and I don't need more than 4C/4T. This might force intel to drop i5's prices.

    Microsoft Entering Agreements with Laptop Makers to Block Linux

    I expected better from TPU. The article needs to be updated and the title changed. It's been confirmed that this claim is false. There is enough misinformation out there as is. It's NOT microsoft's doing. Lenovo failed to provide a linux driver for the new SSD RAID setup, and/or an option in...

    NVIDIA TITAN X Pascal Available from Today

    Missed the mark, as most. This is a halo product for those who don't care about money and are "I WANT IT NOOWWW". A few months later there will be a 1080 Ti with just as good a performance at a much lower price. Nothing is lost to consumers. Now if they didn't release a 1080 Ti, then yes...
