General Hardware / [Frontpage News]E4300 Overclocking
« on: August 06, 2007, 08:23:42 AM »

Rodney takes the E4300 processor from Intel and does some overclocking in the 3DGameman forum.  This processor comes clocked at 9x 200FSB (800QDR) for a 1.8GHz speed.  It has 2MB of cache and just begs to be overclocked.  Some people have reported 3.4GHz + with this processor so it will be interesting to see where Rodney gets his.

   Maximum everything. Energy-efficient per. . .

Well i understand that overclocking sounds tempting, espacially with the low-end intels. But people forget that OC can kill a CPU. Maybe not immediately, but i don't believe a 200% oc'ed CPU will last forever. I remember that the AMD Durons some years ago have had good OC-potential, too. I've read articles about people who could OC their durons from 700 to 1400 Mhz, but guess what, after 6 months even with good cooling the CPU was finished. And i'm not even talking about the higher power consumption, the random  application-errors, bluescreens, whatsoever.

General Hardware / [Frontpage News]GeCube X1950 Pro
« on: July 06, 2007, 09:35:21 AM »

3DGameMan pulls off a written review about the X1950Pro from GeCube.  While this card doesn't offer DX10 support, it does provide better gaming performance that the recently release HD 2400 and HD 2600 cards from AMD.  Sometimes older can be better. . .

   x1950Pro video card is an excellent product based of the tried and true x1xxx series cards from AMD. The included cooler only t. . .

yepp... agreed! i bought a x1950 pro from sapphire recently, its much quicker than the HD2600XT and even quicker than the Geforce 8600GTS. and compared to the Geforce 7600GT which i had before, the graphics are somehow nicer, too. the only drawback is that is has no dx10 support, but i can live with that. there are not many DX10 games available yet, so i think buyers should wait until there are good mid-range DX-10 offers on the market.

Yes i'm referring to the screenshots. I only see a difference on the last pics on the bottom of the page, and the differences to the DX9-screenshots are small. Basically the DX10-Screens only have some additional vegetation in the scenery, and that's all. And i've seen a much nicer and better done vegetation in titan quest, which is a DX9-Game.
Well i know DX10 is not only about better looking graphics, but when some rubbish made vegetation is the only improvement that DX10 brings with it, then DX10 can be considered a hoax that shall force gamers buy windows vista.  :(

i thinks these guys are fooling us... i can't tell no difference.  ???

hope i'm not too late^^

this is a screenshot of "throne of darkness", it's kind of a 2003 samurai-version of diablo. well it's not really a good game to be honest, the AI always does kamikaze and leaves you alone with the enemies, which is annoying  ;D  but i'm really into all that samurai-stuff and have seen all the kurosawa-movies, so somehow i like it ;-)

News / Re: [Frontpage News]ATI Hits With Mainstream DX10 - HD 2600 XT
« on: June 28, 2007, 05:58:12 AM »
this is a very disappointig result. i've wanted to buy a 2600xt and could barely wait for the first benchmarks to come out, but i didn't expect that the 2600xt is even worse than the 8600gt.  ???

i'm just wondering what amd/ati is thinking... who's gonna buy that crap?

btw, i just see that the Asus EAH2600XT/HTVDI/256M GDDR4 is listed @ 179 Euros!?   *LOL*   you must be an idiot when you buy one :uglystupid2:

i gonna get me a old x1950pro. it has no DX10, but it's 10x faster.
