AMD is working really hard to get our their next-generation GCN powered graphics cards in 2016. While AMD is mostly keeping things quiet, AMD’s Raja Koduri who is head of the Radeon Technologies Group did reveal some details in a chat with Forbes.
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have BS MODS’ “Fallout Vault-Tec Build” build. Here is what they had to say about it, “We had to pick a game based theme and we wanted something with a well-established fan base. Fallout 4 is scheduled to come out soon and has great lore to work with. Our build is more Fallout in general, but most of the build inspiration came from the Fallout 4 trailer. We focused on just the Vault-Tec side of Fallout.”
We have been talking a lot about Fallout 4, but Activision’s Call of Duty 3: Black Ops made a crazy amount of money its first 72 hours on sale. How crazy? How does $550 million sound! That’s not bad for 72 hours!
Synology Inc. today announced the release of DS716+, an encryption-oriented, scalable, 2-bay NAS server powered by a quad-core CPU and Btrfs file system. DS716+ is aimed at SMB in need of a reliable, high-efficient storage and application server.
We have not heard that much about Intel’s upcoming Broadwell-E lineup, but now we have some pretty impressive details! Broadwell-E will be the next-generation high-end desktop (HEDT) processor lineup from Intel.
Thermalright has just announced their newest flagship CPU cooler in the Grand Macho or Le Grand Macho as its better known in French markets. The cooler is an extremely beefed up version of the original Macho. It features an off-center aluminum fin tower and eight very large heatpipes.
Earlier this year we took a look at our first Viper 4 DDR4 memory kit from Patriot. That kit was a quad-channel kit designed for the X99 platform. Now that Intel’s Z170 chipset is here we have dual-channel DDR4 which we’ve seen to be more stable at higher frequencies. Patriot has sent us one of their latest Viper 4 DDR4 kits which is an 8GB dual-channel kit that runs at 3400 MHz! With official timings of 16-18-18-36 at 1.35V the PV48G340C6K kit is set to perform quite well on Z170 systems. On top of the fast speeds the memory kit features a custom-designed heatspreader that is black and red that will match many popular motherboards out there. Let’s get this memory installed and see what it can do!
Last week as we reported AMD is being being taken to court over misrepresentation of the CPU core count on its “Bulldozer” architecture by California resident Tony Dickey. He claims that because of the way they are physically structured, AMD’s 8-core “Bulldozer” chips really only have 4 cores.
To celebrate the official launch of Steam Machines Valve is having a huge sale! In this sale 45 titles are on sale, each of which is compatible with SteamOS. That means if you happen to purchase a Steam Machine they will be fully compatible with the system!
