    1366 x58 Xeon Enthusiast overclocks club

    My LinX score matched close enough to my GFlops from 2015 so I didn't think about it.

    1366 x58 Xeon Enthusiast overclocks club

    I just built an i5-4670k machine for work from used parts, figured I'd compare it to my trusty daily 5670@4GHz. Same 1600MHz 16GB DDR3 (different brand/timings, but close enough). 5670: Cinebench R15: 908 Cinebench R20: 1857 HyperPi 0.99 1M 19x: 22.x seconds LinX 0.6.5 8192MB, problem size...

    I ran Cinebench on all CPUs I could

    It's taken Intel until Coffee Lake to have a mainstream processor to adequately replace my X58 Xeon hex, and soon it'll have the same performance. Great, haha.

    Far Cry 5 Video Card Performance Preview @ [H]

    My 980 with a bit of overclock sits at 60fps vsync on Ultra at 1920x1200. I set the FOV to 90 before I started, 75 didn't sound right. The graphics may be more of the same, but it looks awesome and considering the age of my machine I'm thrilled that I get to still play new games. The story...

    But it'll be the best in the world because it won't kill us all? I hope our new robot overlords will be kind.

    No, it just prevents me from giving myself a protected title to try and make myself sound more important than other people.

    Oregon Admits It Violated Free Speech Rights of Mats “I Am an Engineer” Jarlstrom

    I have an electrical engineering degree from a good Canadian university. But because I haven't gone through the long post-grad process to become a Professional Engineer, I cannot legally call myself "an engineer" at all in Canada. The term is protected federally, and regulated by provincial...

    Intel’s First 10nm Chips Coming in 2017

    One day Intel/AMD will finally give me a reason to upgrade from my X58 Xeon. Either that or this 8 year old hardware will finally shit the bed.

    Intel Unveils the 8th Gen Intel Core CPU - Intel's Best Gaming Processor Ever

    Having recently built a Ryzen B350 system for my parents, I look forward to seeing an out-the-door mature platform that may finally replace my X58 Xeon hex system. The Ryzen processor is impressive, but the platform experience has left a sour taste in my mouth.

    The BBC Announces Doctor Who’s Thirteenth Doctor

    Another gap to next series? It's been so long since series 9 that I forgot when the 10th was going to start, and my fb feed so devoid of 10 talk that I didn't know it started until the series was over. Now over a year wait again?
