MIFCOM is a German system integrator focussing on the German, Austrian and Swiss market. At this point we're going to show you there Battlebox, which is based on an Intel Core i7-6950X CPU and one or two GTX 1080 graphics cards.
Against an Intel Core i7-6800K CPU
A few days ago AMD has announced their new Ryzen 7 series processors including three new 8-core chips and they all come with a highly competitive price tag. So far we’ve only seen numbers in multi-threaded benchmarks, however thanks to a leak from PCEVA there are now more real-world benchmarks floating around.
On ASUS Crosshair VI Hero motherboard
AMD has posted a picture on Twitter of a Ryzen 7 1700 microprocessor running with 16GB of G.Skill 3400MHz DDR4 memory. In past days we have come across many rumors about Ryzen supporting high-speed DDR4 memory. This screenshot finally seems to prove that the IMC of the new AMD chips can perfom. On another note it’s interesting to see that a Ryzen 7 1700 has been used, which apparently is a non-”X” model.
Both compatible with E-ATX motherboards
The case manufacturer Anidees has now released their new AI Crystal Cube and AI5S PC cases in the US and in European markets. Both cases are compatible with E-ATX motherboards and they offer extensive water cooling support. There is for example enough space for 240 or 280 millimeters radiators in the front and in the top of both cases.
With black and red color scheme
XFX already has a wide portfolio when it comes to graphics cards but that didn’t stop them from launching yet another model. The new card belongs to the Crimson Edition series and it is supposed to deliver solid performance at a competitive price point. The new Radeon RX 480 Crimson Edition graphics card features a dark color scheme with red LED illumination.
Featuring X370 and B350
Cheaper than Ryzen 3 chips
But so could AMD
Maybe a smart marketing stunt
Finally, there is competition in the market for desktop processors again. A few days before AMD is going to launch its Ryzen processors Intel is cutting the prices of a number of processors. The price cut is not that significant yet from a consumer’s perspective it really is good to see that the market starts moving.
More game optimisations
AMD B350 compatible with Crossfire
With Ryzen AMD has introduced six new chipsets and two of them are already available for pre-order and they are about to become available next week. As we already mentioned a few times the X370 chipset marks the high-end segment, while the B350 is the mid-range offer and with the A320 AMD is taking care of the entry-level market. On top of that there are also three additional chipset, which have been developed for small form factor (SFF) solutions and they go by the names X300, B300 and A300.

To be available soon
EK Water Blocks have shown their upcoming ASUS Maximus IX Hero monoblock that will take care of both motherboard VRM and CPU water cooling thanks to a huge single water block. Since the ASUS Maximus IX Hero is a high-end ATX motherboard, it is quite predictable that this motherboard is going to be part of water cooling projects to come.
A new black and white model
On Ashes of the Singularity
According to latest rumors from Videocardz, new scores on two upcoming AMD RX 500 series graphics cards have appeared. Although Ashes of the Singularity isn’t a great benchmark to use for comparisons, there are plenty of scores in a similar range to the RX 580 and RX 560. The AMD RX 580 should compete against the NVIDIA GTX 1070, while the RX 560 might be fast as a NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti graphics card.
