Intel has released its 11th gen CPUs based on the Cypress Cove architecture and continues to push 14nm to its limits. These new CPUs have a ton of negative press surrounding them but especially the 11900K. There are some serious holes with the new product stack but also a lot of good that the processor brings when considering generational leaps and what 14nm++ is capable of. We are going to do something a bit different here with this overclocking guide by comparing Intel's recommended test settings versus a manual all-core overclock. Intel's recommended settings are going to offer a bit more performance than just basic default settings. Let's see what we can get out of this CPU.
In September, Team Group released a new product line that's targeted at creators. You might be used to seeing T-Force branded items from Team Group, but their new line is T-Create. They are marketing this line to content creators and creative professionals, but what exactly does that mean? Follow along and we'll give you a product tour with performance overclocking and attempt to answer that question for you.
I was looking at 2080Ti cards on Newegg back in August of this year and I had an idea. I saw that the cheapest EVGA 2080Ti was $1090 (XC model) and the Kingpin Edition was considerably more at $1920. I was wondering to myself if there is really a substantial reason to spend an additional $830. I’m not going to delve into the details of each card and the merits of one design or another, the reviewers out there have done that to death. Rather, I wanted to know what the difference is for extreme overclocking. I wondered to myself: Can I take the cheapest EVGA 2080Ti -- and with the help of volt modding -- achieve the same LN2 clocks as the most expensive EVGA 2080Ti?? I had the idea that once I have removed the limits and unlocked all voltage control, it's just going to come down to silicon quality. I was willing to take a $1090 gamble and do extreme modding to the stock 2080Ti to answer this question, follow along to find out what happened.
