Re: Your GPU Sucks: Unigine Superposition Released

My goal was to hit a score of 3000 and got to 3003! Core clock at 1500, and ram at 4001. Stock clocks are 1290/3505. Above 1500MHz, stability becomes a problem. Anyway, if you guys want me to add you in the sheet, please post the core clock and ram speed of your cards! Updated: http://linserv.biz.tm...

Re: AMD Ryzen 1800X temperature reading - subtract 20C???

I remember reading somewhere the max stable temp was 105c in AMD temps, so about 85c. With MX-4 paste and this cooler, my wife's stock clocked 1700x will hit 93c (or real 73c) after running prime95 for 15 min. I almost choked when I saw the temps jump to 90c.

I once ran Skyrim on a WD Green drive, WD Black drive, an OCZ ssd, and from RAM. I then tried different loading points to get a metric of how fast the game loads on these devices. The HDDs were the slowest obviously, while the SSD was a massive jump over the HDDs. Yet the RAM only shaved off about a...

Re: 4K on a PS4? Yeah right, when pigs fly.

Remember now, even the PS2 could do 1080. I only came across one game that would run in 1080, but it was Atari: Anthology...not hard to draw a pink line. So the PS4 could to 4K. But not in the sense we are thinking (aka, Assassins Creed in 4K).

Re: 4K on a PS4? Yeah right, when pigs fly.

To also be fair, the PS4's entire memory system is GDDR5 at 182GB/s, so this can help, and console games are normally very well tuned to that hardware. Unlike the cornucopia of hardware/drivers for the PC. Would the games be complex like Killzone at 4K? No, not at all. But simpler games, doable. It ...
