65 nanometre Intel CPU overclock tested

Hardware Roundup And SLI x8 versus SLI x16

ANANDTECH has managed to overclock Intel's next generation's processors, its 65nm processors Of course, you get to compare Intel's next gen to AMD's current best of breed. The lab managed to produce a 4.25GHz Pentium D through overclocking. Can Conroe, Merom and Woodcrest be so far away?

G.Skill F1-4400DSU2-1GBFC is in fact a dual channel memory pack being reviewed at techpowerup. Lifetime warranty, a yellow ramsink as well as CAS 2.5 latency and a DDR550 rating makes it quite exciting. Awesome overclocking, bargain pricing and amazing performance. Got a straight Editor's price even at standard voltages.

Well, by now, we all know that ATI's X1800XT is the world fastest graphics card. But Xbitlabs ventures into some heavy overclocking 7800GTX, using the Asus Extreme N7800GTX TOP, and the result might, well, be very interesting. See how a 7800GTX overclocked to 486MHz/1.35GHz manages to leave the X1800XT - running at stock speed of course - behind. 26 pages of pure graphic pleasure.

In its own peculiar way, German website compiled 11 socket 754 and socket 939 motherboards reviews. What will probably astound you is the fact that only last generation chipsets are included in the test. No ATI or nForce 4. Also surprising is the starting price of some models, like ECS 755 at around £30.

The Foxconn Winfast 6100K8MA-RS is one of the first members of the new Geforce 6100 based integrated motherboards which will very soon sweep the shores of UK. Specs include a SM 3.0 and DirectX9.0 compatible graphics, eight USB 2.0, SATA2 and AC97 on the list. Performance is stellar for what will certainly prove to be a winning combination, providing you can find one.

It's in chinese but it's pretty clear that HKEPC is comparing two motherboards - The MSI K8N-Diamond plus and the Gigabyte GA-8N-SLI-Quad Royal; both of which are X16 SLI motherboards, one for Intel and the other one for AMD. The comparisons between the plain vanilla SLI, the AMD X16 and the intel X16 version gives some surprising results. Not those that you would expect though. µ
