  1. Re: Exciting times ahead for GPUs in 2016... finally some big performance improvement

    Both nVidia and AMD will use HBM 2 in their 2016 flagship graphics cards.
    Currently, AMD is using HBM 1 in their Fury X card.

    Because AMD helped develop HBM memory, they will have 'priority...
  2. Exciting times ahead for GPUs in 2016... finally some big performance improvements :)

    I've just come back too but have been having hardware/software problems, so I've stopped crunching just as I started again. However today I started again and hopefully everything is sorted out.

    Re: The Boinc Bar!

    Good day to everyone :)

    To cut a long story short... I'll be upgrading my CPU from an Athlon x2 6000+ (Brisbane) to an Athlon II x4 635 (2.9Ghz).
    Hopefully it will be based on the Deneb core...

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but if you really want to run a top-of-the-line AMD CPU properly, and overclock it as well, shouldn't you be using a top-of-the-line motherboard: meaning something with an...

    Re: hard drive age

    I assume that the life of the hard drive would be significantly better, but I think it will "age" somewhat. Make sure you place it in an anti-static bag, keep away from magnetic fields...

    Re: is VISTA 64-bit fine for gaming?

    As I understand it, Windows XP sees about 3.2GB of RAM.
    However, there is something else to consider. Windows Vista 32 bit uses more RAM than XP does. Vista 64 bit uses even more.

    Re: native quad core vs non-native

    In my opinion, there is only one thing that is important when looking to buy a CPU, and it has nothing to do with the following:

    The bios setting I use is 1.35V and CPU-Z says I am at 1.392V.

    Just for the record, the Athlon that I have right now is an F2 stepping.
  17. Athlon 5200+ (F3) vs 5000+ BE (G2) vs mysetup ?

    I currently have an X2 4200+ overclocked to 2.8Ghz with the stock cooler.

    I want to upgrade the CPU without spending too much money, and I do not want to spend money on extra cooling.

  18. Re: Core 2 Duo E6420 vs E6850 vs E8400 Crysis Benchmark?

    If you want better performance in Crysis, I think you would be better off going SLI with a second 8800GT, than with a CPU upgrade.

    If you must upgrade your CPU for whatever reason, take a look at...
