    Leaked Intel i7-6700K Benchmarks?

    Yeah, after waiting so long I pulled the trigger on an $80 Xeon X5660 for my comp (replacing a i7-920.) At this rate, I'll prolly change platforms in 2018 - 2020 sometime... bleh!!!

    Grand Theft Auto V Single GPU Performance Review Part 1

    Would love to see 280x CFX (as I'm rolling with a pair of 1st gen 7970's) if you can eek them in there in part 2. Love the game, but yeah, it seems I have to really lower the settings to get it close to playable on Eyefinity. :(

    Bitcoin Prices Spike on Euro Woes

    Bitcoin miner here. Look... I'm making roughly $1600 a month now and have been profitable ever since I found out about Bitcoin in 2011. I invested in BFL, should have invested in Avalon, yadda yadda... I learned the hard way about how this market works. But I still LEARNED. I'm tired of...

    GTX 680 vs. Radeon HD 7970 - Multi-Display Showdown @ [H]

    Great Review, thanks for this. I'm running eyefinity 3240x1920 and getting another 7970 is a no brainer for me. Also, have you tried Radeon Profile Tool to help with the microstutter on these cards? Might be something worth checking out.

    Ten Years Ago Today In Tech

    Had this exact board. 2500+ Athlon XP-M, DDR400, and a 5900 (flashed to 5950.) Was a SWEET setup, unfortunately... as time marches on... it eventually couldn't keep up. And this was my last AMD build since I started building computers (about circa 386 era.)

    "Pirateat40" Makes Off $5.6M USD in BitCoins

    Those who got out in time got the best of it... :) those who didn't... well... :-/ Made some money while it was running, ended up being down about 16 coins. *shrugs* I figured meh.. but thinking about it... that's going to hurt when each coin is worth $1000+.

    Gigabyte GV-777OC-GD1 Video Card Review @ [H]

    I'm getting 400 Mhash from my 6950 (unlocked) @ 900 Mhz You're doing something wrong... more than likely have crossfire enabled still... The 6990 should be able to do 800 alone. Check your settings and make sure you have 3 versions of Phoenix running, 2 for each chip on your 6990 and...

    Hey AMD, you have my $1100, Can i have some official drivers?

    Honestly.. I HOPE and PRAY team green pulls something out of their collective a$$es with Kepler. this is turn would push the 79x0 cards down to more reasonable prices, and no more competing with 580's and such. I'm happy with my 6870CFX setup but I'm not much of a gamer anymore, and these are...

    GeForce GTX 680 To Launch In February?

    I want new Nvidia cards out just as much as anyone else... and I also hope they ARE faster then the competition... If only to push down the price of the 7970's, 7950's, and 7990's. Yes, I have a vested interested in getting cheap ATI cards.

    Is Bitcoin Making a Comeback?

    Just so you guys know... any ATI card bases on GCN doesn't look like a good Bitcoin miner card. We're more than likely going to see Nvidia and ATI high end cards fighting it out for the gaming card, and any ATI 7xxx cards still based in VLIW4/5 fly off the shelves as mining cards. I for one...
