Lots of DRAM improvements

Lately the community updates from AMD are a great source to find out what the folks have been working on regarding their Ryzen processors. A while ago we’ve covered that AMD has been rolling out the AGESA v1.0.0.4 update and in the meantime v1.0.0.6 has become available to the motherboard vendors for implementation.

With hybrid liquid cooler

EVGA has posted a teaser regarding their upcoming GeForce GTX 1080 Ti FTW3 Hybrid graphics card, which is going to feature a hybrid liquid cooler. According to the latest rumors, this card is supposed to feature a full custom design with an all-in-one liquid cooling unit taking care of the GPU and active cooling for the VRMs.

The first LGA 2066 motherboard from ASUS

Intel’s Basin Falls platform (X299) is just about to be announced. Although Computex 2017 has not yet started, images of an ASUS STRIX X299-E Gaming motherboard have leaked online. This model is aimed at the upper mid-range market and therefore come with quite a bunch of features.

Greek retailer jumps the gun

During the past weeks there were several leaks regarding AMD’s upcoming Threadripper CPUs. This time a Greek online shop has decided to start listing some of the upcoming AMD Threadripper processors, although without price-tags. According to the latest rumors, AMD is supposed to release the Threadripper series CPUs during the Summer.

Three models

Intel's X299 platform is right around the corner and during the upcoming weeks we should see all the new models. Thanks to Videocardz, we can already have a glance at Gigabyte's X299 Aorus Gaming series of motherboards, coming with plenty of new features, a lot of LEDs and an insane number of M.2 slots.

A rather long GTX 1080 Ti

During Computex, PNY has unveiled a new graphics card which is based on the new flagship chip from NVIDIA. Like all NVIDIA AIB partners PNY is releasing a customized GTX 1080 Ti as well, which goes by the name PNY GeForce GTX 1080 Ti XLR8 Gaming OC. After a first look it appears that it’s going to be a rather long graphics card.

Bye bye yellow

Judging by the sheer number of rumors that are surfacing today, the Intel’s new high-end desktop processors and motherboards are very close. During the upcoming weeks we should see all the new models and several motherboards as well.

Snef Computer Design

Today we have another build from Snef Computer Design for you. In the past we’ve shared several of his builds and as you might know they always look exceptionally good. Since we don't know what there is under the hood you will not find any specification.

Might be bundled with new motherboards

If these days you would like to buy a really fast SSD you’re going to choose a M.2 drive. Those drives are not just fast some of them also struggle with overheating issues. A few months ago, MSI introduced the M.2 Shield which is supposed to help keeping the temperatures low. MSI has now announced their latest M.2 cooling solution, which integrates a large M.2 heatsink into the chipset heatsink of your motherboard.

Up to 960GB capacity

NVMe capable SSDs are growing increasingly popular these days, offering much higher transfer speeds than your usual SATA drive. New markets always offer new opportunities and that on the other hand means that different vendors will launch new products. Kingston has just announced the KC1000 NVMe PCIe SSD that offers up to 290'000 IOPS and up to 960GB capacity.

Two compact GTX 1080 Ti

Shortly after Zotac has announced the GeForce GTX 1080 Mini, two more GPUs with smaller-than-usual dimensions are being shown. This time ZOTAC unveils two of the smallest GTX 1080 Ti GPUs to date, and one comes with a dual fan cooler and the other features a custom water block.

Already available

EK Water Blocks
EK Water Blocks has announced a new water block for Gigabyte’s GeForce GTX 1080 Ti AORUS graphics card. The block is going to look similar to the model EK produced for the non-Ti version of the Gigabyte GTX 1080. As always the water block is available in different versions.

Compatible with AMD platforms

During Computex 2016, Phanteks has given a first glimpse at their upcoming water cooling products. Now, one year later, they’re releasing the Glacier series of CPU water blocks, which are also compatible with AMD’s AM4 platform. The new Glacier Series C350a is a compact water block with embedded RGB LED lighting.

New features

The freeware GPU-Z has been a reliable tool for anyone who wants to know more about their graphics card. Meanwhile the software is available in version 2.1. The new release introduces a new advanced tab, which gives you in-depth information related to your installed graphics hardware and software. Furthermore GPU-Z 2.1.0 adds support for EVGA iCX technology.

240Hz, 1ms and G-SYNC

AOC already has a vast portfolio of displays and with the AG251FG the vendor is launching yet another full HD model. The 24.5-inch panel supports 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution at an astonishing refresh rate of 240 Hz, which makes this particular display relevant for playing fast first person shooters.

Based on ATX form factor

The ASUS ROG B350-F Strix Gaming is another AMD AM4 motherboard that should help filling gaps ASUS’ AM4 lineup. So far there are only four B350 motherboards from ASUS that all belong to the Prime series. Compared to the ROG X370-F Strix Gaming, the new B350-F Strix Gaming should be cheaper yet still pack quite a few features.

80+ Platinum and water cooling support

If you want to drive water cooling to the absolute extreme FSP is now offering the possibility to integrate your power supply into a custom loop. The unit features a cooling block that comes from Bitspower.

With sleek design

Cooler Master
Cooler Master has announced a new model in their COSMOS series celebrating 25th anniversary of the company. The new case is called the COSMOS II 25th anniversary edition and comes with brushed aluminium panels and several modern features like tempered glass side panels.
