The only thing better than overclocked hardware is hardware that comes overclocked from the factory, freeing you from that pesky voided warranty. TUL announced an overclocked PowerColor PCS+ HD7850 graphics card, which features a 1000MHz core clock and 1225MHz memory speed. In addition to a 92mm fan and SS-Shape heat pipes, the card relies on DrMos, Digital PWM, and Multi Phases design to handle the overclock. Other features include 2GB GDDR5 memory; 256-bit bandwidth; and DL DVI-I, SL DVI-D, HDMI, and two mini DisplayPorts. POWERCOLOR PCS+ HD7850 HAS ANNOUNCED Boost up your gaming PC with factory...

As enthusiasts, one of the things we can always count on is the never-ending progression of computer hardware. Year after year, video cards get faster, processors offer more cores and / or performance, and motherboards provide additional features. That top of the line, $500 GPU you bought a few years ago can't touch the performance of a $200 graphics card available today. Yes, it's tough to keep up with the rapid pace of technology. But by shopping smarter, you minimize the chance of feeling buyer's remorse a few months down the road. These factory overclocked Radeon HD 6800 series graphics cards... Read more...

Digital Storm has already struck gold once with their Black|OPS desktop range, and as they say in Hollywood, there's no need to create something brand new when there's something awesome still left to milk. Despite the fact that we just made all of that up, there's no denying that Free Willy 2 is evidence of it being true. Oh, back to the PC. The new Black|OPS Assassin is called the "world's most advanced vertically cooled PC," which is exactly what a system needs if it plans on running at 4.4GHz. Yes, this new machine includes three 180mm fans, a sub-zero cooling system and an overclocked Core... Read more...
Enthusiasts are passionate about their hardware. While mainstream consumers target products with the best price to performance ratio, there is still a strong market for computer components that hold nothing back. For proof, look no further than Intel's latest Extreme Edition 980X processor, sporting six cores and twelve threads of pure awesome. Only a handful of applications can make use of that much processing power, but its available and ready to take on whatever you can throw at it. In the same way, the recent explosion of solid state drives has commanded a lot of attention for performance benefits... Read more...

Hot the heels of Intel's announcement of its shiny, new flagship Core i7-980X Extreme Edition 6-Core processor, custom builder Origin PC has added the 980X to its on-line system configurator. Perhaps more interesting than the almost immediate integration of the Core i7-980X Extreme, despite Intel's claim that the CPU wouldn't be available for a few more weeks, is that Origin PC is already offering a speedy 4.3GHz overclocked option... 6-Cores Running At 4.3GHz. Dang. Consumers who opt for the $1,044 overclocked CPU must also choose Origin's custom liquid-cooling solution, but upgraded... Read more...

With the introduction of the new Intel Core i7 processor architecture, the company affectionately known as "Chipzilla" from Santa Clara has once again topped itself on the performance charts. Core i7 chips deliver significantly better performance per clock cycle, while at the same time being more power-efficient versus its predecessors. There's no doubt that it's a great chip, an insanely complex piece of circuitry which can churn through whatever you throw at it with relative ease. It is the chip you want in your system, assuming price is no barrier. However, in this economic... Read more...
NVIDIA’s and AMD’s graphics board partners usually take differing approaches when releasing factory overclocked variants of each company’s respective high-end GPUs. When NVIDIA launches a new part for example, their board partners typically have factory overclocked versions at the ready, and at launch, it’s sometimes easier to find overclocked cards than stock reference models. AMD’s board partners, however, don’t usually take the same approach. When AMD launches a new ATI Radeon, the first batch of cards to hit typically follow the reference design to the letter, and custom, factory overclocked... Read more...

Preliminary news regarding AMD's upcoming 45nm Phenom processors has been trickling out for the last few months, but other than some basic information about the manufacturing process, code names, and socket, concrete details about the processors themselves has been scarce.  Just the other day, however, a post in a Chinese discussion forum--itocp.com--shed some light on the stock performance and overclockability of an early 45nm Phenom sample.If the information in the post turns out to be true, and all indicators at this point are that it is, the chip used for their experiments has a default...

Just last week, we posted an evaluation of a Radeon HD 3650 card by Diamond Multimedia, where said manufacturer decided to one-up ATI's reference specifications by raising the amount of on-board memory to a full one gigabyte.  The results, unfortunately, were not overly favorable as the memory happened to be of the inexpensive, low-speed DDR2 variety.Today, however, we take a look at two more HD 3650s, one each from ASUS and HIS, where the emphasis was placed more on clock speeds than on memory buffer size.  While the default speeds set forth by ATI's reference specifications were listed...

Fudo over at The Inquirer reports that their sources have learned NVIDIA will not allow any board vendors to offer a factory overclocked version of the new GeForce 8800 series GPU's. For vendors such as BFG, XFX, and Gainward which have used factory overclocking to help differentiate them from other card vendors this is certainly less than stellar news. Fortunately for the consumer, the standard Coolbits registry hack will still function and allow them to overclock their cards as soon as they get them home. EVEN the water-cooled G80 cannot...
