It looks like someone let the cat out of the bag on Gigabyte’s upcoming Gaming 3 motherboard. The chipset is of course under NDA, but if you’ve been following any of our Skylake leaks you can guess what chipset this board features and the official name of the board. The board will follow Gigabyte’s black and red color design that they have been using on their Gaming Series motherboards.
We previously tested the DeepCool Captain 240 liquid CPU Cooler and weren’t very impressed with the results. As it turns out neither was DeepCool when they saw our results so they decided to send us a second test unit after all. Fortunately this one arrived from Hong Kong with the thermal paste intact so we got to work immediately retesting.
Artificial Intelligence has been a pretty popular target for a long while now. And it looks like the discussion is going to get even more interesting with the development of a gun turret that has the ability to identify, track, and shoot targets without the need for human interaction.
Just yesterday we showed you a 5.2 GHz overclock of Intel’s upcoming Skylake flagship processor the Core i7-6700K. If you can do 5.2 GHz on air, then what you do when liquid Nitrogen is thrown into the mix? Well it looks like you can get the chip to an impressive 6.5 GHz! That is a 2.5 GHz overclock from the chips stock speed of 4.0 GHz!
Here are the first photos and our first look at Gigabyte’s upcoming flagship targeted towards overclockers and enthusiasts, the Z170-SOC Force. Gigabyte keeps the same black and orange design that they have been using on their overclocking motherboards. For those wondering this board keeps the traditional ATX form factor.
It has already been known that NVIDIA will be making use of HBM (High Bandwidth Memory) in their next iteration of their graphics cards. Just last month NVIDIA had taped out their GP100 silicon on TSMC’s 16nm process. The latest reports are now saying that we should expect two GPUs coming from NVIDIA, both of which will feature HBM2.
Deepcool’s original Assassin CPU cooler came out in 2013 and one one of the largest and best performing coolers available. 2014 brought in the Lucifer, which we tested and it proved to be one of the best coolers available at the time. It is now 2015 and Deepcool has released the successor to the original Assassin, the Assassin II. This massive air cooler features a dual tower design, two cooling fans (140mm and 120mm), 8 nickel-plated copper heatpipes and its own 4-port fan hub. Can this cooler reign supreme like Deepcool’s previous two coolers? Read on as we find out…
Intel is expected to launch their Skylake processors in just a couple of weeks at Gamescom and it looks like there are already a few samples in the wild. If these screenshots are believed to be real it looks like whoever is testing this chip was able to get it up to 5.2 GHz on air cooling!
MSI has posted photos of their upcoming Z170 Gaming M series motherboards on Facebook. This series is made up of the Z170A Gaming M5, the Z170A Gaming M7, and the Z170A Gaming M9 ACK. We have to point out that the “M” does not mean these boards are micro-ATX board, but rather to let you know these are MSI Gaming products. MSI’s competitors have imitated the naming scheme they used on their Z97 motherboards.
The EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti K|NGP|N graphics card is designed for overclocking perfection. With a 14+3 power phase design, this new digitally controlled VRM can deliver up to 600A of current, all delivered through 3 power inputs. A pre-binned GPU, ACX 2.0+, and the ability to go single slot with the included single slot bracket, makes this one of the most versatile graphics cards on the planet. You can get a card customized for you with the Ultimate OC Project.
