    Battlefield 4 Windows 7 vs. 8.1 Performance Review @ [H]

    Yes and in almost every configuration, Windows 8.1 had HUGE benefits. What are you exactly trying to say?

    Battlefield 4 Windows 7 vs. 8.1 Performance Review @ [H]

    They don't say, unfortunately. But, it's pretty clear pattern. Look at the average FPS on that review to gauge it a bit better what the overall performance is. But, unequivocally, Windows 8.1 has significant benefits.

    Battlefield 4 Windows 7 vs. 8.1 Performance Review @ [H]

    Well, I got bored and compiled the data from Hardware Pal's similar review, seen here. I appreciate Hard|OCP's testing, but they missed a big point by leaving out the CPU. If you play on any settings that really stress out your CPU, Windows 8.1 has ENORMOUS benefits for Battlefield 4...

    Battlefield 4 Windows 7 vs. 8.1 Performance Review @ [H]

    Regarding Kepler and DX11.1, NVIDIA had this to say: So, it has DX11.1 for basically any purpose Hard|OCP is concerned about--I think. --- So, I'm curious why you guys chose a pure GPU test....A Frostbite 3 developer stated this on Reddit: So, it also has CPU benefits. Another site...

    What is the slowest part in a computer today?

    Oh, right! I remember those cards. You plugged them into a PCI-E slot and they had a couple DDR slots for RAM. With DDR3 prices this low, you'd think that would be moving somewhere. I think it was RAM density that slowed them down, though. You only get 4 DDR slots on a card; filling that with...

    What is the slowest part in a computer today?

    @PNTL and Magnus "This question isn't to buy parts or anything (haha); this is just a general question on the state of technology..." @Forceman Well, I thought the same thing. I looked up some RAM disks, however, and they were on-par or only slightly faster than SSDs. But, your point is...

    What is the slowest part in a computer today?

    It used to be the hard drive, but with the advent of SSDs, what is now the slowest part of the computer? I mean, for regular computing (what 95% of the world does with its computers: cue in Office, Firefox, watching a movie), what's holding them back? Why are instant-on computers still far...

    Four Weeks of Galaxy Give-Aways!

    My aging 8800GTS 640MB needs an upgrade! (and I have a PSU to handle it; I think). :D Woohoo! :) ~Ibrahim~

    PowerColor PCS+ HD4890 1GB @ [H]

    I add another. :) I mean, three out of the five games you tested were playable at 2560x1600; Crysis and Far Cry 2 the only exceptions. And even then FC2 was at 1920x1200 with 4XAA and the highest in-game settings.

    PowerColor PCS+ HD4890 1GB @ [H]

    I can see an overvolt being likely; even with its new cooler, the temperatures were within a few degrees from the stock cooler. It's good that it's quiet, though. Typo Fixt - Kyle Not a bad card. I wish you guys might throw in a GTX 285 in there. I've had conflicting information whether the...

    NVIDIA EDID fix for "bugged" Westinghouse LVM-37w3se

    Yeah, these latest drivers have been causing monitor problems for others, as well. AFAIK, no fixes have been found. :( ~Ibrahim~
