Furthermore both displays come with support for AMD FreeSync which allows for a variable refresh rate that ranges between 60 and 72Hz.

Malik Customs

Today we have another build from Malik Customs for you. In the past we’ve shared several of his builds and as you might know they always look exceptionally good. Since we don't know what there is under the hood you will not find any specification.

Up to 12 cores

Judging by the sheer number of rumors, that are surfacing these days around the upcoming Intel high-end desktop processors, we’re closing in on the launch of these new parts. This time it’s again Anandtech who reported that Intel will launch Skylake-X parts with up to 12 cores.

Up to 16 cores

The guys over at Wccftech have leaked the lineup of upcoming Ryzen 9 CPUs featuring models names and specifications including core/thread count, base frequency and even TDP. Nevertheless, as for now it remains unknown when AMD is going to release these new processors.

Triple fan cooler

MSI has unveiled a new graphics card which is based on the new flagship chip from NVIDIA. According to the name, this card doesn't belong to Gaming series. After a first look it appears that is going to be a rather long graphics card. This model is available with or without factory-overclock.

Today we have another build from Snef Computer Design for you. In the past we’ve shared several of his builds and as you might know they always look exceptionally good. Since we don't know what there is under the hood you will not find any specification.

Performance improvement for Prey

Following the launch of Prey, some users have reported issues in combination with their NVIDIA graphics cards. NVIDIA has already been looking into that and today they’re releasing the GeForce 382.19 hotfix driver. According to NVIDIA's changelog this Hotfix only is purely to solve issues with the game Prey. If you do play this game then it’s highly recommendable to get this update, otherwise you can ignore it.

With pre-installed waterblock

Zotac has introduced their new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti ArcticStorm graphics card and it comes with a liquid cooling block. Compared to the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti AMP Extreme we find a pretty conservative factory overclock. However thanks to the full cover waterblock, the card should provide very good gaming performance.

Up to DDR4 3600MHz

Corsair shows new Dominator Platinum memory on almost a yearly basis. Since quite a while the vendor is only marketing these kits as special editions, being numbered. The latest Dominator Platinum Special Edition Torque makes no exception with that rule.

With PCIe riser

Lian Li
A few months ago Lian Li launched the PC-O11, which is a cube-shaped, dual-chamber case, much like the PC-O8, that’s been around for quite a while already. This case comes with an elegant design as well as the left side panel and half of the front panel made from tempered glass.


Today we have another build from Cap-Ten (Ronny Moor) for you. In the past we’ve shared several of their builds and as you might know they always look exceptionally good.

Even better than Sandy Bridge

We all know that AMD's mid-range Ryzen 5 CPU family is currently one of the best things you can buy if you’re on a tight budget. According to a news from 3DCenter, AMD's Ryzen 5 processors received some of the best user ratings since 2010.

Two new CLC coolers

Fractal Design
A few years ago, Fractal Design introduced the Kelvin lineup which was based on an expandable design. Now with the Celsius series, the Swedish manufacturer is ready to introduce an improved version. The Celsius S24 and Celsius S36 use 240mm (S24) or 360mm (S36) radiators with integrated fan hubs and standard G1/4" threaded fittings so that you can easily expand the loop to include another waterblock.

The first chip based on Volta

Last night, during the GPU Technology Conference, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang has announced the very first GPU based on the Volta architecture, the Tesla V100. According to him the new chip is the most advanced accelerator ever built, powered by 5120 CUDA cores and over 21 billion transistors. Furthermore the chip features 16GB of HBM2 memory pumping out 900 GB/s of bandwidth.

Based on Zen architecture

According to another rumor which has its roots in the the SiSoft Sandra database yet again, AMD is busy working on the new generation of APUs with the codename "Raven Ridge". As detailed and rumored earlier, AMD's Raven Ridge APUs are expected to use Zen-based CPU architecture paired up with Vega-based GPU architecture.

Codename Whitehaven

There's not a day that we’re not talking about AMD Ryzen. According to a rumor that originated from the SiSoft Sandra database, AMD is already working on a new high-end Ryzen CPU with codename "Whitehaven". The new processor will come in variations with up to 16 cores and 32 threads and will support quad-channel DDR4 memory.
