ASUS has released a new series of BIOS updates that support the latest high-capacity 24GB and 48GB DDR5 memory modules on select ASUS AM5 motherboards. These BIOS updates are available as test revisions for users to try out early from resident overclocker Shamino on the ROG forums. As a result, these BIOS... Read more...
Modern graphics processors have thousands upon thousands of shader processors, and that's because they're expected to run intense 3D games and do massively-parallel math. You don't typically expect integrated graphics processors to do those things, so that's why they're much smaller, and they don't get any littler... Read more...
TechTuber Roman "der8auer" Hartung has been enjoying a tour of the Intel OC Lab in Portland, Oregon. Luckily for us, he made a video on the jaunt and teased a selection of hardware and software which provides Intels bunny-suited boffins so much more access than you can imagine. The video starts with a look at one... Read more...
The purported tech specs of AMDs A620 entry-level chipset for Ryzen 7000 series CPUs have been charted by Twitter leakster Chi11eddog. We all expected the step-down from B650 to be significant, but with the slashing of PCIe 5 support and removal of CPU overclocking functionality, AMD will have cut the feature set too... Read more...
The so-called liquid metal thermal compounds are well regarded for their heat conductivity, but they come with extra hazards. They are thus not the best choice for novice or nervous PC DIYers. This fact is illustrated very clearly by a graphics card sent to overclocker Roman der8auer Hartung, which was in a... Read more...
If you follow hardware news, you likely recall the discovery that Intel's 12th generation Core processors, even the ones without the "K" suffix, could be overclocked on fancy motherboards that featured an external clock generator. Well, as it happens, despite the company bragging about it initially, that was... Read more...
Gigabyte and its in-house overclocker, HiCookie, just set a new world record for the fastest DDR5 memory speed ever achieved. The official record to beat, as recognized by a validated HWBOT listing, now stands at 11,135MT/s, or 11,135MHz if you prefer the more common albeit technically incorrect way of listing...

An Intel Core i9-13900K has been nudged past 9GHz, to achieve a CPU clock speed world record. En-route, the current flagship Intel 13th Gen Core Raptor Lake processor grabbed CPU performance world records in benchmarks like PiFast and SuperPi. Intel boasts that this is the second time since launch, just three months... Read more...
It's a bit of an open secret, but in case you're not aware, most processors these days are pushed far beyond the "sweet spot" in their voltage-to-frequency curve. That means that you can trim the voltage and reduce power consumption considerably while only dropping a bit of performance. On the already-efficient... Read more...
Remember that ridiculous GALAX GeForce RTX 4090 HOF we told you about a few days ago? To the surprise of absolutely no one, that card has now been crowned the fastest GPU in the world thanks to some benchmarks performed under liquid nitrogen by hardy overclockers.
