MSI Z77-GD65 in pretty pixels

A few weeks ago a site PCGH published pictures of MSI production Z77-GD65, because we are just a few weeks from launch, let's remind them. The only difference from the retail version are used coils, that golden ones looks really crazy.

Core i7-3770K Ivy bridge @ 7 GHz!

Screens above is from January, E0 revision chip (stepping 8) submitted by some "unknown" OverCloker and published now on BSN. Here you have better picture above. And performance? - Take a look ..

LucidLogix Virtu MVP tested!

You may know LucidLogix wants to launch new Virtu Universal for Intel and AMD and Virtu MVP. This technology has been already announced several months ago, but on the market will be in April with Ivy Bridge launch. We show you if it works and some exclusive pictures.

Exclusive: Info about Nvidia Kepler!

GeForce GTX 680 will be launched in March/April. In February, will be launched only GeForce GTX 560SE. The first cards based on Kepler architecture are GeForce 600 not 700! .

Real Kepler, GK107 tested and pictured!

Everything seems legit, device ID is 0FD1, it is right ID for N13P-GT SKU, look at this old S/A table. Enjoy, especially 384 CUDAs :)

Exclusive: Guide how to disable GPU Boost @ GTX 670/680

Many people complain of GPU Boost, although I do not understand why, but it's true. GPU Boost is a great feature to increase performance, lower power consumption and GPU core temperature. Today we prove that the disabling GPU Boost and stabilization of clocks does not increase performanceonly increasing power consumption and noise of the card! First, let's see how the GPU Boost off.

You need only Nvidia Inspector utility (version 1.9.5.4) and cmd - command line in Windows. At first, look at screens and results, disabling GPU Boost really works!

GeForce GTX 680 at deafult settings, clocks oscillate under load between 1006-1110 MHz. GPU Boost is activated, score in 3DMark 11 is 3305 points.

GeForce GTX 680, GPU Boost deactivated. Clocks are for the all tests still at 1006 MHz. Score is worst, only 3121 points in 3DMark 11.

GeForce GTX 680, GPU Boost deactivated. Clocks are for the all tests still at +/- 1100 MHz. Score is +/- the same as on default with GPU Boost activated. !Card with a fixed frequency 1100 MHz has the same performance as card with GPU Boost activated with max clock 1110 MHz! Disabling of GPU Boost provides no performance benefit, but only a higher power consumption/noise of the card. But look at overclocked results too ...


GeForce GTX 680, GPU Boost deactivated. Clocks are for the all tests still at 1300 MHz. Score is 3713 points in 3D Mark 11.


How to disable GPU Boost



There are two ways to off GPU Boost, first is reduce the Turbo bins in the BIOS or shutdown the highest P-state (GPU Boost pstate) under Windows. First method is complicated and dangerous. The second is a simple and functional. The principle is this: We need to force the card to work on the P-state P2, state for Base clock frequency. That's all.


Go to folder with Nvidia Inspector and run there cmd. Write " ...nvidiainspector.exe - forcepstate:0,2". Thats all. Now you can open Nvidia Inspector and raise clocks for P2 State (as on picture above). GPU Boost is disabled and clock is still on your set value, in every game and test. !You can overclock that GPU Boost off VGA only in Nvidia Inspector, not in Afterburner/Precision. Afterburner/Precision tweaks P-state0 (GPU Boost pstate) with offset, but now we have this P-state off, you have to increase P-state P2 - base clock pstate! Enjoy, and thanks Christian Nay for help ...

PS. Max clock only 1110 MHz in P2 P-State? - Go in Nvidia Inspector to P-State 0, raise the clocks above that 1110 MHz, go to P2 P-State and set required frequency. Then type again " ...nvidiainspector.exe - forcepstate:0,2" in cmd screen.

Hint: You can make an easy batch file with commands for Nvidia Inspector, with Power Target Value, GPU/Mem clocks, Voltage, GPU Boost off. One click, have overclocked card with GPU Boost off. One click back to normal ... enjoy!

KEPLER - THE WORLD’S FASTEST HPC




Now, with the new Kepler GK110 GPU, NVIDIA raises the bar for the HPC industry, yet again. Comprised of 7.1 billion transistors, the Kepler GK110 GPU is an engineering marvel created to address the most daunting challenges in HPC.



Kepler is designed from the ground up to maximize computational performance with superior power efficiency. The architecture has innovations that make hybrid computing dramatically easier, applicable to a broader set of applications, and more accessible. Kepler GK110 GPU is a computational workhorse with teraflops of integer, single precision, and double precision performance and the highest memory bandwidth. The first GK110 based product will be the Tesla K20 GPU computing accelerator.

This technical brief is designed to quickly summarize three of the most important features in the Kepler GK110 GPU: SMX, Dynamic Parallelism, and Hyper-Q. For further details on additional architectural features, please refer to the Kepler GK110 Whitepaper.

GeForce GTX 660 is on the track, but ...

Many people waiting for the GeForce GTX 660 (Ti), as a cheaper alternative to the HD Radeons 7800. It will be a great card with high performance, but also the high price! If you wait for a cheap card, forget it! The price of "Ti" will be 299-329 USD!

St(R)ach je prase, aneb jendova vizitka v praxi


Nejprve si přečtěte tohle, na obrázku. Jeník se trochu rozčiluje, že jsou recenzenti jež posílají karty v hrozném stavu atd ... ještě, že ten Jenda je pořádný a čistotný, nebo ne?


Takhle vypadala karta za bratru 13 000 Kč co mi Jenda poslal, on ji měl první a jediný v ČR, tedy šla přímo od něj ... i podle štítku PPL to tak bylo. Jedna předtím asi mazal rukou tabuli, sádroval díry ve zdi nebo míchal maltu (ne maltru) nebo cement. Obě karty vypadaly jak jsem zdokumentoval na fotkách.

Musím říci, že jsem asi nikdy nedostal takový bordel, i když jsem to tušil, když to šlo od Jendy ... asi kartu testoval tady:


Pak už se nelze divit stavu v jakém obě karty byly. Netroufám si tvrdit co to bílé na kartách a krabicích bylo, vypadalo to jako antiseptický prášek z gumových rukavic, ale já k tomu nečuchal. Abych tuhle ošklivou story dokončil, vzal jsem si rukavice a vlhký hadr a karty, včetně krabic dokonale vypulíroval. Teprve pak jsem byl ochoten na ně sahat holou rukou, fotit je a testovat ... takže Jendo ... příště si umej ruce když mi budeš něco posílat, díky!

PS. Nebyl to záměr? neposlal mi Jenda Anthrax?

Chcete GeForce GTX 670? - Počkejte!

Source: VR-Zone.com

Chcete GeForce GTX 670? - Že ještě nevíte.., tak za pár hodin už to vědět budete, zkrátka ji budete chtít :) Tentokrát ale radím s nákupem počkat. Startovní ceny jsou mastné a snížení se čeká už velice brzy! Hned jak klesnou ceny Radeonů HD 7950/7970, Nvidia shodí kousek ceny nových GeForce GTX 670. Pokud máte zájem o luxusní výkon za slušnou cenu, .. tak vyděržáj piaňér! Slevy se blíží ... a když nesleví Nvidia, AMD ano a vy si můžete koupit Radeon HD 7950 za cenu pod osm tisíc ... chcete? - Raději vydržte na slevy GTX 670, uděláte lépe :)

Big Kepler will be introduced in two weeks ... but :(

In a few days (weeks) will be announced "big" Kepler (GK1x0), on the GTC event will probably be presented as well as card based on this large chip. Specifications are brutal, but we're facing a big "BUT". Gamers will be clearly disappointed, just like me ... more info later, stay tuned.

PS. GeForce GTX 660 Ti has new name: GeForce GTX 660, maybe "Ti" model will be released later ... maybe not.
