Today we have another build from L4 Modz 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.


More information about the overclock capability

Intel
A few pages of an overclocking reviewer’s guide on Intel's X299 Kaby Lake-X platform and CPUs have leaked. According to this document a “good” Intel Core i7-7740X chip is supposed to run Cinebench R15 at 5.0 GHz and 1.205v in combination with a potent CPU cooler. If you’re lucky it could even be possible that you’d be able to run your chip at 5.2 GHz, but with higher voltages - of course.


Most powerful graphics card from MSI

MSI
The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Lightning Z is the MSI’s flagship model, featuring a custom PCB and a custom cooler. This model is usually created for performance and extreme cooling enthusiasts, being equipped with a triple-fan cooler. Apart from that there is a new lighting system which allows you to change the color of the LEDs.


More benchmarks soon

ocaholic
There have already been plenty of leaks from other websites regarding Intel’s upcoming Kaby Lake-X CPUs. Today we can finally show some of our own results. A few months ago we have started testing all the recent CPUs regarding a variety of programs and benchmarks.



With massive factory overclock

Zotac
Zotac has shown a new graphics card, which is based on the flagship - GP102 - chip from NVIDIA. Right after the announcements of the PGF series, Zotac unveiled another graphics cards, which goes by the name Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 Ti AMP Extreme Core Edition. This card comes with a custom heatsink and a factory OC.

Volume production has begun

Samsung
Everything that involves NAND flash memory has grown to what is today a huge business and throughout the past few years the big names such as Samsung, Micron and SK Hynix have been investing heavily in research and development. One of the results of this is that today we have consumer SSDs with up to 2TB capacity due to 48-layer 3D NAND flash chips. So far it looks like Samsung is perfectly on track to soon launch the next generation of SSDs due to 64-layer 3D NAND with even higher capacities.


NVIDIA GTX 1050 Ti graphics card in recommended hardware

Microsoft
Microsoft has released the system requirements for Forza Motorsport 7 and it looks like compared to Forza Horizons 3 it won’t be that heavy on the hardware anymore. This is pretty good news for the more casual gaming community out there.


That’s quite expensive ...

AMD
According to the latest rumors from our friends over at Videocardz, the next generation of AMD graphics cards, which will be based on the upcoming Vega architecture has been spotted in a retail shop. AMD's Radeon Vega cards may be amongst the most anticipated product family of the year. According to Scan UK and SabrePC in the USA, the Vega Frontier Edition should cost $1199 US.


X299 for the masses

MSI
During Computex 2017, MSI has shown their first batch of X299 motherboards for Intel's Basin Falls platform. Meanwhile we have taken several pictures of the upcoming X299 Gaming Pro Carbon AC which should be one of the more competitively priced models from MSI regarding Intel X299 chipset. Compared to the predecessor, which goes by the name X99A Gaming Pro Carbon, we see a similar color scheme - as the name suggests - but a reworked layout and a new design for all the heatsinks.

AMD
Although the acclaimed launch date will be somewhen during the upcoming weeks news leaks related to Threadripper are making it through almost every day. This time wccftech jumped the gun and they have found some leaks in the Geekbench database. The results are pretty similar to AMD's existing Ryzen CPUs.


Based on P106-100 chip

ASUS
These days, Bitcoin is experiencing another hype as currently the price for 1BTC skyrocketed to a whopping $2'460 US. That means the value of one Bitcoin tripled within just a few weeks. As it always is with Bitcoin mining a big hype kicks in when the exchange rate explodes - as it just did. A few weeks ago we have seen rumors about upcoming mining GPUs and maybe rather sooner than later NVIDIA is going to introduce something that is geared towards that purpose.


Available next week
