    MSI Announces the Z270 GODLIKE Gaming Motherboard

    Sorry, but this reeks of complete marketing BS to me, similar to the "racing stripes on your car make it go faster" level of nonsense... Also I have tried Killer NICs in the past and they were overpriced garbage doing far more bad than good (causing BSODs, DPC latency lags etc) and I had to...

    Entire AMD Vega Lineup Reportedly Leaked - Available on June 5th?

    If you're on Windows 10, that's a Windows issue (Xbox DVR/Vsync forced on by W10, especially for Nvidia Optimus/systems with both integrated & dedicated graphics). I fixed this same issue on a friend's rig and is one of the many reasons I refuse to downgrade to Windows 10, in addition to the...

    AMD Ryzen 9 "Threadripper" Lineup Leaked

    So after reading this news (and not posting here for about a year, if not longer) I am sort of in two minds on this. Whilst this news of a 16 core makes me really happy and I can't wait to see what AMD can do with these beasty chips, I don't think this is the right generation for me to jump &...

    NVIDIA GTX Titan X Pascal 12 GB

    Fair enough -- sorry I took your post a bit badly, read it in the early hours of the morning (also had the page open on my phone, hence why it said I was watching the page when I really wasn't -- I'm actually at work now :)). The thing that annoys me the most is them cutting out both the AIBs...

    NVIDIA GTX Titan X Pascal 12 GB

    I'll rephrase that -- £600 is not what I'd consider paying for a card of that tier, so if I ever get tempted to buy one, I'll wait until they run out of the willing for a price drop to what I consider reasonable. I just find it strange that so many people that called a £700 top of the line card...

    NVIDIA GTX Titan X Pascal 12 GB

    Where did I say I was "entitled" to anything? You still don't get it, do you? Here's the thing -- a 1080 shouldn't cost £600. In fact, it shouldn't be anywhere near that price -- I got my friend an EVGA GTX 980 for £399 on release, where did the near 50% price hike come in and become...

    NVIDIA GTX Titan X Pascal 12 GB

    Am I the only one not impressed with this card in the slightest (massively disappointed, if anything)? People last year were screaming for the Big Pascal to be the second coming of Jesus -- "10x times faster than Maxwell with 16GB of HBM2!!!1!!!1!" So much so, I was contemplating swapping out...

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 8 GB

    I meant the random sharp edges added to their stock silver/vapor hamber heatsink, not the slimmer backplate...the backplate is more than welcome.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 8 GB

    Am I the only one not impressed in the slightest with this card? The GTX 980 came out with very similar performance gains, used the same manufacturing process, same memory type, and was priced almost £150 less than this thing at launch...I really don't see the point of this card. The games it...

    More AMD Socket AM4 Technical Details Emerge

    Most enterprise workloads need high memory bandwidth by default. Ones that don't will use higher amounts of lower performing CPUs instead anyway (hyperthreaded quads/hexa cores etc) -- and since AMD want to make AM4 a jack-of-all-trades socket with APUs in the pipeline further proves my point.

    More AMD Socket AM4 Technical Details Emerge

    Umm yes they do. Average Joes will not get them very far -- they need OEMs and the rich server-buying crowds on their side, far more than they need the Average Joes.

    More AMD Socket AM4 Technical Details Emerge

    I know -- the same way Sandy Bridge only technically supported 1333MHz max, but as always Intel tend to understate their figures, while AMD tend to overstate. Last time, both supported up to 1333MHz and yet Sandy Bridge was getting 16-18GB bandwidth while Deneb/Thuban got 7-9GB using the exact...

    More AMD Socket AM4 Technical Details Emerge

    For the love of God AMD...do no mess this launch up. The below quote is already making me nervous: It needs to support 3200MHz out of the box, no excuses...no more repeats of history please, like the slow-as-hell DDR2/3 mixed on-die controllers of the AM3 days where Sandy Bridge was mopping...

    Black Ops III: 12 GB RAM and GTX 980 Ti Not Enough

    1. Because the game looks like crap... 2. Because Batman AK used over 7GB at launch, now uses around 5.5GB max. GTA V online also had memory leak issues, which have been fixed since.

    Black Ops III: 12 GB RAM and GTX 980 Ti Not Enough

    And this is exactly why I bought a Titan X over the 980 Ti...so I won't be forced to wait for months of patches etc before they fixed memory leaks in case I wanted to play one of these crappy ports (not that I do - COD is the last game I'd consider buying)...

    Titan X upgrade?

    Gotta love these trolling thread-crappers that post nothing useful, nor adding anything remotely helpful to the discussion in any way. You might want to learn to read first, buddy...I asked Titan owners for feedback on how loud it was -- because W1zzard's Titan X video was showing the worst coil...

    Unigine Heaven 4.0 Benchmark Scores

    Here's my Titan X @1360/2000 (on stock air cooler) & 2500K @4.4GHz. Number 9 by the looks of things, not bad at all...I'm surprised my 2500K managed to keep up, considering how old it is (and that it's the only PCI-E 2.0 in those top 10 scores)

    Titan X upgrade?

    LOL I know, I know. Will sort it out tonight, I promise. :toast:

    Titan X upgrade?

    Afraid so... All this stuff is going to be cleaned and remounted tomorrow and I was just too lazy yesterday... And I have a brand new RM750i sitting in the box ready to replace my old Be Quiet PSU.

    Titan X upgrade?

    Well, so far so good. Finally testing the card under Furmark and I can't hear the fan or any coil whine, even with the case wide open. Though this thing throws out a LOT of heat with that cooler, I almost forgot how much heat high end GPUs generate these days after using my rusty old GTX 460 for...

    Titan X upgrade?

    I'm well aware of that. As I said before, I bought this rig to last me a good while - at least 5 years from now and I can't see a 6GB card being sufficient 'til then. Feel free to come back here in a few years' time and tell me how well 6GB VRAM has worked out for you - I'd rather buy an...

    Titan X upgrade?

    I'm sorry, but this is coming from a guy that bought TWO Titans back in the day? Seriously?! And umm you do realise it's a 120Hz monitor I have, right (which overclocks to 140Hz by the way)? Now go take a look at the review and tell me how many of those games render at above my refresh rate (to...

    Titan X upgrade?

    By not fully functioning, I mean the cut down number of shaders & ROPs. If it had the exact same core specs like the Titan X has -- like the 780Ti vs Titan Black did, I would have been far more tempted to get it.

    Titan X upgrade?

    The Fury is only about £230 or so less than a Titan X. And the problems I have with the Fury X are - it's much slower than much cheaper cards at 1080p (on which I will still play competitively, even after I get an Ultrawide monitor) and the gap only tightens at 4k - it can't run 3d Vision on...

    Titan X upgrade?

    Thanks a lot for your advice, folks. After thinking for over a week deciding between a custom 980 Ti (specifically the ASUS Strix and Gigabyte's Windforce models) and a Titan X, I've decided to pick up a Titan X due to a deal too good to pass up on (was only £130 more than Gigabyte's and only...
