It was the case for a very long time that if you were buying a laptop, you were almost assuredly getting an Intel processor. Sure, AMD was around, and there have always been Macbooks, but both were niche products at opposite ends of the market for ages. For the overwhelming majority of users, only Intel offered the compelling combination of... Read more...

Popular German overclocker der8auer delided a Ryzen 7 8700G to see what untapped performance could be squeezed out of AMDs latest Zen 4 APU. He found that delidding the chip and replacing the stock thermal interface material with better alternatives resulted in significantly better thermals, and was able to... Read more...
Overclocker SooHo Jeong set a DDR5 frequency world record, reaching an incredible 10600MT/s utilizing AMDs new Ryzen 7 8700G APU. The new record isnt the all-out DDR5 frequency record, which is still held by Intel, but this is the highest frequency weve seen to date on AMDs latest AM5 APUs. To accomplish the... Read more...
EK has been known for years as the company that does beautifully executed water cooling components for PC enthusiasts. The skill level needed has always been demanding for custom water cooling, leading many enthusiasts to opt for air or AIO liquid cooling instead. As 2024 gets underway, EK has introduced its new...

AMD has responded to recent concerns surrounding overclocking on Ryzen Threadripper 7000 CPUs, specifically how AMD's built in a piece of hardware to detect if overclocking has ever been enabled, and how that could impact warranty coverage. AMD reached out to Tom's Hardwareto clear the air and assured users that... Read more...
Out in the wild, you'll typically find a few types of gamers. The first one is a fan of boosting the visual eye candy to the maxwe're talking ultra settings at a 4K resolution, with path tracing to boot. Alan Wake 2 is a great example of leading edge technology that focuses on the visual aspect of the game. The next... Read more...
It was only last week when we reported that an overclocked Threadripper Pro 7995WX broke the world record for Cinebench R23, but as of the time of this writing, the record has been broken five more times by overclockers using the same chip. The initial world record was set with air cooling, so it was expected... Read more...
AMD CPU overclocker Bill Alverson, who goes by the handle Sampson, set several CPU performance records on Wednesday with his overclockedThreadripper Pro 7995WX. The 96-core processor is based on AMD's Genoa family, which also powers the regular Threadripper 7000 lineup and 4th Generation EPYC CPUs. These... Read more...
In case you're unfamiliar, "delidding" is the process of removing the thick metal plate attached to the top of modern CPUs. This plate is known as the "integrated heat spreader" or "IHS," and it protects the fragile silicon die of the processor from cracking when fumble-fingered users are installing their cooling...

Overclocking expert and YouTuber ScatterBencher has set a new world record for Intel Arc A770 GPU clock speeds. He wanted to achieve first place in at least one recognized A770 benchmarking record, but ended up securing P1 across the full gamut of 3DMark benchmarks. To introduce his video, ScatterBencher...

Memory overclocking performance has historically been a weak point of AMD's Ryzen processors. This is true even on Socket AM5; where Intel-based DDR5 rigs can hit 7000, 8000, all the way up to the world record of 11,202 MT/s, AMD systems tend to struggle to get much past 6000 MT/s. On the Socket AM4 platform, memory... Read more...
Just days after Splaves incredible 4GHz overclock on the ASUS ROG GeForce RTX 4090 Matrix, another overclocker by the name of CENS has already come in and beat his world record by nearly 100MHz, overclocking NVIDIAs flagship GPU to a poetic 4090MHz. CENS overclock was achieved with liquid nitrogen... Read more...
Extreme overclocking expert Allen 'Splave' Golibersuch inched past the GeForce RTX 4090 4GHz clock speed milestone a few hours ago. Splave recorded an official 4,005MHz using a liquid nitrogen cooled graphics card, and thanked his supporting cast of component makers - ASUS, ASRock, G.Skill, and Enermax - for their... Read more...
Overclocking expert Allen 'Splave' Golibersuch is jubilant after achieving a world record GPU clock speed on a GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card. In addition to achieving a stable 3,945MHz GPU clock, a world record GPUPi v3.3 32B result was scored. You can be forgiven for feeling some dj-vu today, as the RTX 4090 GPU... Read more...
Austrian cooling specialist Noctua has teamed up with overclocking professional Roman 'der8auer' Hartung to create the new NM-DD1 direct die kit. It is claimed that delidding your Socket AM5 CPU and using this product can result in CPU temperatures that are as much as 10-15C cooler. The new kit from Noctua is... Read more...
Overclockers look destined to break the 4GHz milestone with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card within the next few months. Meanwhile, overclocker CENS got within touching distance of this milestone, with a record-breaking 3,930MHz this weekend. CENS's score represents a hugely impressive >75%... Read more...
AMD repeatedly told us (and thus, the world) that the Navi 31 GPU die used in the Radeon RX 7900 XTX was "architected for 3 GHz." That may be true, but in the real world, top-end RDNA 3 parts rarely exceed 2.6 GHz under a sustained, heavy load. As a result, the RX 7900 XTX generally falls behind the GeForce RTX 4090...

PowerColor has admitted that a small percentage of its Radeon RX 7900 XTX Red Devil graphics cards have an issue that results in a significant delta between the average GPU temperature and the hot spot temperature. The firm has already made a helpful statement on the issue, but many will be happy to fix the problem in... Read more...
An NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 pushed beyond 3.8GHz has achieved the top place on the Unigine Superposition 8K leaderboard. Unigine Superposition is an advanced modern 3D benchmark, which uses many features seen in today's AAA games, so this achievement means the 3.83GHz overclock of the RTX 4090 was also pretty stable...

Overclocking guru and TechTuber der8auer (AKA Roman Hartung) has tested a couple of active graphics card backplate coolers purchased via AliExpress. Graphics card backplates can get pretty hot, so it is logical to think that adding some active cooling could help with the overall cooling of your card. However... Read more...
AMD's Ryzen "X3D" processors are created by very literally attaching a second piece of silicon that is almost entirely L3 cache memory to the top of a regular Ryzen processor die, just like the picture above implies. It is the central slab atop the wider CCD. This second chip, known as the "3D V-Cache", is very... Read more...
