Gigabyte P67A-UD7 Preview

Gigabyte P67A-UD7 Preview @ TweakTown

“Lately the challenge has been to find an efficient way to mate a powerful CPU with a powerful GPU. AMD calls this Fusion while Intel calls this Sandy Bridge. Sandy Bridge represents an evolutionary change to Intel’s CPUs. With it we find even higher-end CPUs with a built in GPU. The new silicon requires a new socket and of course a new chipset.”

“Earlier this month, we got an early look what Asus has in store for Intel’s new hotness. Today, it’s Gigabyte’s turn. Late last week, the company’s high-end P67A-UD7 motherboard arrived at my door, and while I don’t yet have a CPU to pop in, I was able to snap a stack of pictures of the board.”

“Kingston have stuck with the same design on their packaging for quite some time now, giving you a clear view of the memory and the security sticker detailing the model number, size, speed and cas latency. The label is used as a security seal, to stop the memory being tampered with.”

“Enthusiast RAM is like the sports car of the computer world. It can help give you that extra edge and is a must for any serious overclocker. Join us as we check out OCZ’s new entry in the Reaper line, and find out if it can slice through the competition.”


ZOTAC GeForce GTX 480 AMP @ Xtreme Computing

“Zotac have sent us along their top model GTX 480 for review. This differs from the stock GTX 480 in that it has a core clock of 756Mhz, shader of 1512Mhz, and memory speed of 3800Mhz. So it should have a nice bump in performance over the stock GTX 480.”

“Now that the 6800 series cards have been out for a while, we’re taking a closer look at ASUS’ HD 6850 variant, the EAH6850 DirectCU. With their unique heatpipe cooling solution, DirectCU, ASUS claims their cards run up to 20% cooler than OEM style cooled cards. Come along as we see how things turn out as the benchmarks get under way.”

Inno3D GeForce GTX 580 OC

“We review the Inno3D GeForce GTX 580OC. Despite a very high price tag the product seems to become a nice success. As such directly at launch several models based of this SKU where already announced, e.g. the regular clocked models, factory higher clocked models, liquid cooled models.”

PowerColor Radeon PCS+ 6870

“What’s unique about this PowerColor card is that it’s not a reference heatsink; it’s got a custom cooler and a healthy factory overclock as well, promising some great gaming horsepower with respectable temperatures and power consumption. And not only that, but it comes with a free copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 tossed in for good measure. Tasty.”
