    If they follow latest trends, new OLED panels from LG are released around June every year. On another topic, reading the Phillips specs: I mean, how do you compete with that? I have an LG C2 but I never really stopped to think about how absurd these specs are. If they really manage to shrink...

    Looking Back At ATI Technologies

    It was 2004 I think, I had a 9800 Pro flashed to XT. Purchased an aftermarket cooler for it too. Used to leave the window open during snow season to break synthetic benchmarks records...

    The upgrade from Alienware AW3821DW IPS LCD to LG C2 42" OLED was as big as going from mechanical HD to SSD.

    Does your monitor make any sort of noise when it's on?

    LG L203WT - silent Samsung 245T - humms for a few seconds after I turn it on, then i can't hear it anymore. I do have a Samsung Plasma TV 50A650 that humms all the time.

    GigaByte GA-EX58-UD4P or ASUS P6T(non deluxe)

    i went with the Asus and couldn't be happier. but i'm sure the Gigabyte won't be any worse. they're very good bang for buck boards. offer (nearly) the same that all $300+ boards offer.

    P6T (not deluxe) sleep issue

    It's a known issue with all Asus, EVGA and Gigabyte's X58 boards. So far no one has found a fix yet.

    Asus P6T non deluxe ?

    Another P6T user here. Been running at 4Ghz @ 1.4v for two weeks now with this board and absolutely no trouble. 191 x 21 and 211 x 19 both work perfectly. 200 x 20 required a bit more vcore. Didn't have to set any voltages too high (VTT and vQPI both within Intel specs) It's a very...

    Bizarre issue with Gigabyte X58-UD4P board - Memory there, but not seen by Windows.

    Yes, CPU-Z shows 3Gb @ 1600, just like he said. Now look at the sidebar where vista says he only has 2Gb. That's what the author is worried about. I'm sorry but I can't help you here. Did you try slots 2/4/6?

    Asus P6T deluxe vs Asus P6T

    I bought a P6T and I'll be assembling it today. having less LAN or SATA ports didn't bug me. The only thing i really looked at was the 8phase power against 16 from the Deluxe. Will that make me OC less?

    phase power

    I have seen the MSI Platinum, and it only has 5 phase power and still gets very nice overclocks (210+ bcl), so I wonder if the gigabyte's 12phase power and asus's 16phase power is only gimmick

    Some specs revealed in the upcoming GT212

    what would be the problem in using 256-bit bus? it's only so good for bandwidth, and with GDDR5 there's plenty bandwidth to make up for the cut in the bus width.

    I want YOU to choose my X58 board!

    I'd get the Asus P6T or wait for the Foxconn BloodRage :] The Giga UD5 seems pretty sweet too, but I'm not fond of Gigabyte's horrible vdrop.

    Is S-PVA good enough or should I only get an IPS panel?

    PVA isn't that bad... The ghosting annoy me but the color shift is bearable. TN is way worse... If you can afford, go IPS..

    Is burn-in definitive?

    I have a S-IPS LG 20" screen. It has image burn-in at the top of the screen... So for the whole time the computer is on, i can see the address bar of my internet explorer and the rocketdock shadow, even if i don't have it open. The monitor was left off for about 2 or 3 weeks because I...

    4850 Crossfire bottlenecked by x8/x8 lanes

    TweakTown released really lame articles and reviews when the HD3XXX series came around. They were the very first to review them, and in their charts, the performance was ridiculously under what we saw in every other review. They made the HD3850 look as weak as a 8600GT. There was a lot of...

    2408WFP Input Lag?

    No, that's not all. A high enough input lag will make even desktop use uncomfortable, to the point of unusable.

    2408WFP Input Lag?

    S-PVA nowadays are full of problems. The 2407 (non HC) wasn't that laggy and didn't have as much ghosting as the 2407-HC and 2408 do.

    2408WFP Input Lag?

    I'm wondering how can products like this get to be sold. If it's so bad that's noticeable in desktop then it is REALLY bad. I have a Samsung 245T that has horrible ghosting on dark gray colors.. I can see the mouse ghosting in this forum's background, or when I play Tomb Raider, but that's...

    Do we need more than 512MB at current?

    Samsung 245T service menu?

    Hello everyone, I recently bought a Samsung 245T, gorgeous screen. Unfortunately as I've read, it suffers from the same problems as the Dell 2407-HC. Lot's of ghosting when using gray backgrounds, and it really annoys me when playing Tomb Raider or Assassin's Creed. Someone mentioned that...
