  2. Reason I love Zotac is because here in my country they and Palit are the only ones that do not price their products with ridiculous mark-ups.
  3. I remember about 3-4 years ago stumbling upon LTT when I was building a gaming rig for myself after so many years of being away from DIY and needed a quick and fun refresher. Since then, I've been steadily hooked and keep coming back for more.
  4. Finally, the front facing speakers are starting to become a thing. Also, the quality on that custom skin looks nice.
  5. The finish on the body is beast. I'm all for aluminum but this one is a league on its own with its resistance to smudges and fingerprints.
  6. The back buttons are like a godsend for people with smaller hands.
  7. Gotta click that link for the most beautiful smartphone ever!
  8. The guys over at Corsair did a little memory benchmarking on the Beta version of Battlefield 4 and were surprised to find out that they got a significant boost in performance switching from 1600MHz to 2400MHz RAM speeds. These results should be taken with a grain of salt since this was a Beta version of the game and they were using FRAPS instead of frame capturing but we should still expect to see some improvement when the game comes out. Specs they used were: i7-4770K overclocked to 4.4GHz 2x overclocked GeForce GTX 780s in SLI 32GB of Dominator Platinum Spec-wise, you'd think RAM speeds wouldn't matter unless you are using integrated graphics but with 2 GTX 780's you'd never think it was. The graphs are really striking: Look at those differences! At 1920x1200, average framerates get a 22.7% jump while the minimum framerate was still a healthy 9.7%. At 5760x1200, average framerates go up by 15.2%, and minimum framerate by 22.9%. Maybe this might be a trend with the other upcoming games that require 64-bit operating systems, who knows.

  9. Maximum PC has done some benchmarks on Samsung's new 840 EVO drive and the results are really quite impressive considering its use of TLC Flash. At the suggested retail price of $650 for 1TB, it's a lot cheaper than 2 512GB MLC Flash based SSD's. The only downside is the lesser 3-year warranty but considering it's Samsung, this would still be pretty reliable.
  10. Apparently, the PS4's CPU will be just like the XBone's in that only 6 of the 8-cores will be given to developers. The other 2-cores will be reserved for its OS. Source: http://www.pcper.com/news/General-Tech/PC-Leading-Crew-Next-Generation-Platforms
  11. That's a good point. I still think a wait and see approach might be more conservative since we do not yet know how the developers will code their games for the next gen consoles. I think it might be a given that not all of them will totally use all those resources, seeing as games are still split between CPU-intensive and GPU-intensive. There will also be some devs that might opt for Ubisoft's move to code on PC first then trickle it down to the consoles and we don't know what hardware they'll use to code it to seeing as some of the XBone's demos were using Intel and NVIDIA hardware.An interesting thing that I'm keeping watch is how Intel's Hyperthreading tech will perform if games will be more multi-threaded since in media creation applications, which are multi-threaded, they perform quite well.
  12. From what I've read about how the CPU's on the PS4 and XBone work is that a couple of their cores are allocated to run their respective OS so in-effect, you're left with about 6 of the original 8 cores to used for gaming. It's also important to take note that the cores on the Jaguar CPU's they will have are not equivalent to their desktop counterparts. Not sure how that will translate to gaming since Intel's core quality might balance out their lack of quantity. It's still up in the air as to whether AMD desktop CPU's will really benefit from AMD console CPU's since publishers will be starting to code for PC then trickle it down to the console because of how PC-like they've become.
  13. Actually, it's within the region of what the FX-8350 @ 5GHz performs. Bit-tech did a benchmark of what a FX-8350 @ 4.8GHz performs. It got a Cinebench score of 8.25 @ 4.8GHz so a 5GHz one would be within in the 8.30-8.35 range just like where the FX-9590 is at.
  14. Kitguru has posted a review of AMD's 5GHz CPU, the FX-9590. As far as gaming is concerned, it does pretty well but when it came to CPU intensive applications like 3D Rendering and Media Encoding, even on synthetics, they get beaten by a 4770K at stock speeds. That simulated Cinebench benchmark using the FX-8350 clocked at 5GHz was spot on though. At the price point this thing is at, the 3930K/3960X/3970X would be a much better choice considering those CPU's dominated pretty much in the testing.

  15. The way you were wording them suggested running 4pcs. That's why dual GPU cards are worded "2 690's" or "2 7990's" if there is more than one of the cards being acknowledged. Besides, you do not need a dual CPU motherboard to use 4pcs 690's or 4pcs 7990's. Any motherboard that supports 4 graphics cards will work.
