 [LATEST]  AMD Radeon Pro WX 8200 Review: Powerful, Affordable Workstation
     Wed, Oct 17 2018 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in August, during SIGGRAPH, AMD announced the latest addition to its professional graphics card line-up, the Radeon Pro WX 8200. Like its predecessors, the Radeon Pro WX 8200 features the distinctive YInMn blue signature color of other Radeon Pro WX cards and is geared towards content creators and creative professionals. This latest addition to the line-up, however, is actually a slight step-down from the current flagship Radeon Pro WX 9100 – sort of. The two cards are both based on AMD’s Vega GPU architecture, but the core counts and memory configurations differ between the two. AMD’s goal with the Radeon Pro WX 8200 was to drive prices down, while maintaining a similar level of performance...

 [LATEST]  AMD Radeon Pro WX 8200 Professional Graphics Card Review
     Wed, Oct 17 2018 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD’s processors have made a big comeback in the professional market, but its most recent workstation graphics haven’t met with the same fanfare. The Vega-based Radeon Pro Vega Frontier Edition and WX 9100 are capable 3D accelerators, but the former is a limited edition, and the latter a £1,500 high-end card in the same price range as the NVIDIA Quadro P5000. The Vega range didn’t offer anything hugely competitive below £1,000 for professionals. That’s all set to change with the AMD Radeon Pro WX 8200.

ASUS Launches Intel Z390 Series Motherboards
     Tue, Oct 16 2018 | 12:56P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

Almost exactly one year after introducing six-core Coffee Lake processors alongside Z370 motherboards, Intel® is back with more cores, higher clocks and the new Z390 chipset. The new 9th Generation Intel Core™ processor family offers up to eight cores and 16 threads of parallel processing horsepower that’s perfect for content creation, heavy multitasking, and other demanding workloads. With clock speeds as high as 5GHz on the flagship Core i9-9900K, these new processors also raise the bar for gaming performance, especially if you’re streaming, recording, and chatting simultaneously.

ASUS is excited to support this new generation of Intel processors with a wide variety of new motherboards based on the Intel Z390 chipset. The collection is led by a diverse cast from the Republic of Gamers that elevates gaming and overclocking to new heights. ROG Strix offers more streamlined alternatives that include a mighty Mini-ITX model, while TUF Gaming focuses on the essentials to hit more affordable price points. Outside the gaming sphere, the Prime family serves up signature ASUS features in a professional package, and the WS sets the stage for serious workstations and prosumer builds.

There’s an ROG or ASUS Z390 motherboard for everyone, whether you’re a seasoned veteran who tunes to perfection, a hardcore gamer obsessed with performance, or a first-time builder seeking a seamless PC experience. For further details about our ROG lineup please visit ASUS ROG. Our buying guide with complete specifications, pricing and images for the entire lineup of Z390 motherboards is located at Edge Up ASUS.

Since its inception way back in 2006, the Republic of Gamers has set the standard for gaming and enthusiast motherboards. We created the category, and with each new generation our designers and engineers refine the formula in pursuit of faster performance, more customization, and a better overall gaming experience.

For Z390, the Maximus XI series embraces the dark side with blacked-out boards in multiple sizes and variations. It leads with the unparalleled Maximus XI Extreme for dream builds, which is followed by armour-clad near twins in Maximus XI Formula and Code. The Maximus XI Gene rethinks our approach to microATX, and the Maximus XI Hero strikes the right balance in three different flavors. ROG Strix fills the space below the Maximus series with more affordable options that retain the look and feel people have come to expect from the Republic of Gamers. These models keep must-have features for gaming and overclocking but are not as extreme as their ROG siblings. In the Z390 series, the Mini-ITX Strix Z390-I Gaming is joined by three full-sized ATX boards: the Strix Z390-E, Z390-F, and Z390-H Gaming.

TUF offers a new direction for gaming hardware that combines builder-friendly features with battlestation-ready themes. Its unique aesthetic and focus on reliability and gaming essentials are shared by a growing collection of additional hardware we developed in-house, plus contributions from a broader TUF Gaming Alliance made up of industry titans that produce compatible parts. You can already buy matching memory, coolers, and power supplies along with a TUF Gaming case, and additional hardware is on the way.

The TUF Gaming Z390 series spreads across five different models that are ultimately very similar. You can choose between the TUF Z390-PRO Gaming and TUF Z390-PLUS Gaming for ATX along with the TUF Z390M-PRO Gaming for microATX, with WiFi-equipped versions thrown in for good measure.

The recent resurgence of PC gaming is partly responsible for the litany of gaming boards in our lineup, but desktops can do a lot more, especially with eight CPU cores at their disposal. Our WS and Prime motherboards are more businesslike in their approach, with an eye toward professionals and prosumers building powerful machines geared more for productivity instead of play. They also appeal to enthusiasts and even gamers who want many of the same features with an entirely different look.

The WS Z390 PRO loads up on expansion capacity for Coffee Lake workstations, while the Prime Z390-A hits the sweet spot ASUS aficionados expect with each new generation. Basic builds can get by with the Prime Z390-P and Z390M-PLUS.

ROG, ROG Strix, Prime, WS and TUF Gaming motherboards will be available for pre-order in select regions starting on October 8, 2018. Please contact your local ASUS representative for more information.

AMD Dual EPYC 7601 Benchmarks - 9-Way AMD EPYC
     Tue, Oct 16 2018 | 12:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Arriving earlier this month was a Dell PowerEdge R7425 server at Phoronix that was equipped with two AMD EPYC 7601 processors, 512GB of RAM, and 20 Samsung 860 EVO SSDs to make for a very interesting test platform and our first that is based on a dual EPYC design with our many other EPYC Linux benchmarks to date being 1P.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 (MSI Armor and ASUS Turbo)
     Tue, Oct 16 2018 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA today has lifted the embargo for the GeForce RTX 2070. We start off with two reviews today, both will be offered at 499 USD. We have the MSI GeForce RTX 2070 Armor 8G edition and the ASUS Turbo GeForce RTX 2070 8GB. The cards perform nicely, between the GeForce GTX 1080 and 1080 Ti. And that's a comfortable place to sit in this price range.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Review
     Tue, Oct 16 2018 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we have our day-one GeForce RTX 2070 review for you and I suspect like most other publications, we were seriously under the pump for this one. Nvidia's own review guide shows the RTX 2070 easily beating the GTX 1070 and then the 970 before it, though that's a little misleading as it's priced to compete with the GTX 1080 and Vega 64, so those are the models we'll focus our attention on when comparing performance.

RTX 2070 launch
     Tue, Oct 16 2018 | 11:48A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To say there is a bit of pressure on the RTX 2070 launch would be an apt assessment. The community wants to see a reason to get excited for new graphics cards, without having to wait for applications to take advantage of the new hardware features like Tensor and RT cores. Conversely, NVIDIA would surely love to see an RTX launch with a bit more praise from the press and community than their previous release has garnered. The wait is no longer, today we are taking a look at the RTX 2070, the last of the RTX-series graphics cards announced by NVIDIA back in August.

Fractal Design Define S2 @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Oct 16 2018 | 11:48A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So we have to go back a few years to get to the Define S launch from Fractal Design. All the way back to April of 2015, a lot has changed in that time especially in the case market. The Define S came before the tempered glass explosion and there are a few other checkboxes that people look for in cases like hidden power supply mounting and some modularity for options with AIO and custom water cooling. So Fractal introducing a new Define S wasn’t a huge surprise. But I am interested in seeing what else Fractal has done to continue to evolve the always popular Define design. I’m sure they went beyond just hitting the standard features, so let's dive into the case and see what is new then build in it to get the full experience!

MSI RTX 2070 Gaming Z 8GB Review
     Tue, Oct 16 2018 | 11:47A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in August, Nvidia announced its new RTX 20-series cards based on the Turing architecture. Three cards were announced - the RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti, which launched almost a month ago, and the RTX 2070. With a lot made over the high prices of the 2080 and 2080 Ti cards, the RTX 2070 has almost gone unnoticed - until now that is, as today we can publish our first 2070 review.

Nvidia RTX 2070 Founders Edition
     Tue, Oct 16 2018 | 11:46A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So just over 3 weeks ago both the RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 were unveiled. You can find my reviews of the RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 at those links. While both were extremely fast, they were also expensive and a lot of the main features weren’t really out yet. With those at the top of Nvidia’s product stack that left a lot of people wondering what to do for builds that aren’t as expensive as a used car. Some people just decided to go with last generation cards, but today the RTX 1070 is finally available and with a $499 starting point it is at least in reach of a lot more people. But before you run out and buy one, let’s take a look at how they perform. With the RTX 2070 Founders Edition in hand, I’m also curious to see how different it is than the two other RTX cards so I will take a quick look at that as well.
