  • Marfoo posted a message in the forum topic i want to know something about the next nvidia/amd gpu's. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    @Coseniath: For the first part, it was assumed no die shrink involved. You can add more transistors if they're not sucking up too much power. ie, lower bandwidth (clock speed), wider architecture l...

  • Marfoo posted a message in the forum topic Fractal design, define R4. Cooling performance ?. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    I have the Define R4. I only use the front two intake fans, the bottom intake and the only exhaust is the rear. I prefer to run a positive pressure setup. I have all Noctua fans and the machine is...

  • Marfoo posted a message in the forum topic i want to know something about the next nvidia/amd gpu's. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    The best advantage I see to having power efficiency besides mobile supremacy is being able to scale up the number of transistors more easily without having to worry about the power ceiling. If you lo...

    @achilles614: Ha, that's exactly what I studied.

  • Marfoo posted a message in the forum topic Gta v pc release date?. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    I really hope they do release it for PC. I mean, all the consoles are x86 now and if they're porting to Xbox One and PS4 it's a no-brainer to build the PC version as well. With how similar Xbox One ...

    I think this can be an excellent product based on your needs. I would have loved something like this during my engineering undergrad. I was constantly going between class, the lab and meetings. The...

  • Marfoo posted a message in the forum topic Overclocking worth the effort?. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    My take on overclocking is if your hardware at stock configuration is not running your games up to your satisfaction, overclocking can sometimes tap into that extra headroom that will take you where y...

    Nvidia's Maxwell was nearly redesigned from the ground up for maximum power savings, I'm not sure they've added a whole lot feature wise though. Their current Maxwell offering hasn't gone down to 20n...

    @PredatorRules: Precisely. Or you know, if you like simulating particle physics in your spare time.

  • Marfoo posted a message in the forum topic is there really a need for two graphics cards?. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    There are a few scenarios where two cards are appropriate. One is extreme gaming, you want more performance than the fastest single card can provide. Second is you already have one card, some extra mo...

    @PredatorRules: No worries, so many GPUs come out it's hard to keep track!

  • Marfoo posted a message in the forum topic Is an HD7870 2G still worth it?. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    @PredatorRules: I don't recall there being a Pitcairn silicon with 20 CUs (7870) being clocked lower than 1000MHz ever (unless they have some weird third-party passive models or something). As far ...

  • Marfoo posted a message in the forum topic Is an HD7870 2G still worth it?. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    There are plenty of cards faster than the 7870, but the truth of the matter is, it (and comparable Nvidia cards) can still handle any game out there no problems at 1080p, maxed out or damn close. At ...

    My friend just bought a GTX 770. He paired it with his i5 2500k, he runs AC Black Flag just fine all settings turned up, smooth as butter. Something is up with your system.

  • Marfoo posted a message in the forum topic Mantle Performance Preview: LOOKS AWESOME!. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    I'm skeptical about Mantle not requiring GCN to run. The benefits from going to a low-level API stem from the fact that commands and functions are hardware-specific and optimized. Although, the part ...
