ClockTuner for Ryzen auto-tunes performance and power draw

Overclocking and tweaking performance on Ryzen is not an easy thing because, compared to the automatic boost, it cannot often squeeze too much extra and silicon does not have large reserves. But if you are not satisfied with a “stock” processor, you will now be able to use automated OC. The new ClockTuner tool will allow you to automatically undervolt Ryzen 3000 CPUs or automatically overclock them, separately for both CCX blocks.

Ampere GPU: new PAM4-based GDDR6X memory & more details

Next-gen Nvidia GeForce GPUs are almost here, with reveal on September 1th, but we have interesting new information on them like some specs for the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090. But more importantly, it turns out Ampere introduces a complely new memory. Micron has confirmed developping special GDDR6X chips for Nvidia that will increase clocks and bandwidth by 50% over GDDR6. So what do we know so far? Read more “Ampere GPU: new PAM4-based GDDR6X memory & more details” »

The results of the spring competition. Air 2:2 Liquid

The voting is over and we know the names of the victors. Sharing and support on social networks played a significant role, so PR got a little boost too. Of course, it was on every participant where and how they promoted their rigs. We are pleased that the score between the air systems and liquid systems is equal. Although the absolute winner is a liquid cooling configuration. Read more “The results of the spring competition. Air 2:2 Liquid” »

Years of development and new Noctua fans made of Sterrox

There is probably no such thing as a dominant company in the world of cooling. But if we talk just about fans, Noctua is close enough. Their fans with characteristic brown rotors are relatively expensive but also generally considered to be a quality standard. Now, this Austrian company introduced a new generation that promises big changes. Read more “Years of development and new Noctua fans made of Sterrox” »

Vote for the best rig in the spring competition!

The competition is really strong. It was impossible to choose just six rigs, which was the first plan, so we decided to give a chance to more people. There are fourteen champions, seven air systems and seven liquid systems. Every design is interesting and clever, with various original features. It’s going to be a tough choice, but we hope you will find your favourite one! Read more “Vote for the best rig in the spring competition!” »

Ryzen processors with iGPU and 35W TDP

For computers with a low consumption, and even more for passive configurations, it is good to have a processor with reduced TDP, ideally 35 W or lower. Intel have such models on the market (T models), but they are still missing in AMD’s offer, at least among their new Zen CPUs. This is about to change with the arrival of new Ryzen (4 cores + iGPU) based on APU Raven Ridge. Read more “Ryzen processors with iGPU and 35W TDP” »

NUC with 10nm Cannon Lake processors and Radeon GPU

Minicomputers and NUC barebones from Intel is nothing new. But this year, there will be an interesting innovation: a model with dedicated graphics card. Not in the style of high-end Hades Canyon (Kaby Lake-G with Vega GPU) of course. It’s going to be NUC with a cheaper Radeon in some classic chassis, and the price will be lower. This model will probably be one of the first computers with 10nm Intel processors – which may be related. Read more “NUC with 10nm Cannon Lake processors and Radeon GPU” »

Ncore V1: water block for processors without a heatspreader

There’s a new speciality for fans of liquid cooling and Intel processors: a water block created for delided CPUs. You may have already thought about a liquid cooler that would be installed directly on-die. Arek Tobiszewski has designed a block for this purpose, its very base serve as a heatspreader for LGA 1151 processors. Read more “Ncore V1: water block for processors without a heatspreader” »
