This ASUS RoG Strix GL502VS-DB71 laptop has to be the “steal” of the century at only $1700. Mobile Pascal in the form of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 along with the Intel i7 6700HQ CPU and 16GB of DDR4 RAM. I was also lucky enough to get a Samsung SM951 (MZVPV256) 256GB NVMe SSD for […]
Amazing. “High Bandwidth” +140 MHz Core Clock OC in MSI Afterburner = 1911 MHz boost clock in ARK: Survival Evolved: MSI Afterburner settings from the above run:
Received my 3-slot and 4-slot NVIDIA GeForce GTX SLI HB bridges today! 2-slot coming soon. Benchmarks, etc. to come! Installed with 2x EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 FE: Lights out!
Upgraded my “secondary rig” (4770K CPU) from a meager GTX 950 to a GTX 1070. More to come!
Now that the GTX 1080 is showing up on gamers doorsteps everywhere, a lot of attention has turned to the “new” NVIDIA SLI HB bridges and their lack of availability. Will they make a performance difference and in what situations? In the Tom’s Hardware GTX 1080 review NVIDIA stated: “Using new SLI bridges, both connectors can be […]
1080 in the house! So far, not proving to be much of an upgrade over the TITAN X…but it is new and shiny! Current Specs: Intel i7-5960X CPU @ 4GHz (Corsair H110 280mm Liquid CPU cooler with 2x Noctua NF-A14 iPPC-3000), G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 series 32GB 2800MHz DDR4, EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 FE SLI, […]
This game has me hooked! What settings are you guys using? Even with a 5960X CPU @ 4GHz and NVIDIA GeForce TITAN X SLI my machine chugs at 1440p due to no native support for SLI in the game…any tips or tricks for tweaking? I’m running the latest NVIDIA drivers: 365.19. My settings are below […]
The game is awesome and it has a great in-game stats readout! SLI support isn’t really baked, yet (the 365.19 driver disables it for the game, in fact) but it still runs really nice on a 5960X @ 4GHz and a single TITAN X with no OC.
Tested the tesselation improvements from AMD Catalyst 15.6 Beta to AMD Catalyst 15.7 using TessMark 0.3.0 – on Windows 8.1 x64 with a 4770K CPU/16GB RAM/Gigabyte R9 290X 4GB (GV-R929XOC-4GD) – went from 7850 points to 8292 points. Pretty huge!
Decided to give my secondary PC a boost (it was running a 750 Ti) – picked up EVGA’s newer (released January 2015) GTX 970 – the SSC. It came out along with the GTX 970 FTW+ – which is the same card with a slightly higher factory overclock and a pre-installed backplate. $45 more for that? […]
