The new [...]


SK hynix starts series production of HBM3E memory

Micron or SK hynix? Each claims to be the first, as SK hynix has announced that it has gone into series production of its own HBM3E memory and will soon be launching it on the market. This is the latest AI memory product with expected ultra-high performance, which will be delivered to customers later this month. The company announced the [...]


Moody IMCs, beware! – Corsair Dominator Titanium RGB DDR5-8000 2x 24 GB Review with Overclocking and Teardown

A test is always particularly exciting when you come across unexpected problems for which the test subject is not actually responsible. This was also the case here. A RAM test, even if it’s a rather high-priced kit, now runs according to the same pattern for me and isn’t witchcraft. But this time I found myself trapped in an almost [...]


CES: Ryzen 8000G: Dual-channel DDR5-6000 is probably the sweet spot

AMD has unveiled the Ryzen 8000G “Hawk Point” AM5 desktop APUs at CES 2024, combining Zen 4 CPU and RDNA 3 GPU cores. These chips are equipped with the latest Ryzen AI “XDNA” NPUs (8700G & 8600G) and are aimed at a budget or mainstream audience who want to play casual or AAA games without having to upgrade a discrete [...]


Order trick with Amazon: How the 1-day delivery of several scarce items with Prime then works after all (self-test)

The NAS article actually planned for today has to wait until next week, the delivery delays for certain components has unfortunately (once again) put a spoke in my wheel. But at least a nice workaround fell in front of my feet, with which you can also beat Amazon a bargain with your own stock. Sure, the whole thing is no big deal, but with a [...]


DDR5-11202 memory overclocking achieved on Intel Z790 platform

Once again, enthusiast overclockers have taken DDR5 memory to a new level of performance. Using LN2 on Intel’s Z790 platform, DDR5 memory achieved impressive overclocking speeds of 11202 Mbps. The current record was set by American overclocker SEBY9123, who used a single Trident Z5 RGB DIMM from G.Skill to beat the previous record set by [...]


Micron is back!? – Corsair Vengeance 2x 24 GB DDR5-7000 and 5600 Kits Test with Overclocking and Teardown

Tests of working memory kits are actually relatively predictable if you already know beforehand which memory components are installed and how they are known to behave. It is all the more interesting when new ICs come onto the market and no one really knows what to expect. This is exactly what today’s test is about, because we take a closer [...]


Familiarly bright, fast as hell AND affordable?! – G.SKILL Trident Z5 RGB DDR5-6800 CL34 2x 16 GB kit in test with teardown and overclocking

First of all, I owe an apology to G.Skill, since the test sample was already sent to us last year, but the review is now online a few months later. The reason for this is that until recently we revised our test methodology for RAM kits in order to be able to test better and faster. However, the waiting time also benefits the Trident Z5’s [...]


Dominant even with new ICs? – Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB DDR5-7200 CL34 2x 16 GB Kit Test with Teardown and Overclocking

Every day is a groundhog… er, Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB DDR5 kit day, of course. We have already presented the exterior of Corsair’s high-end RAM modules a fair few times, but, as with so many things, it is mainly the inner values that matter. I can therefore already tell you that today’s test subject relies on SK Hynix 16 [...]


How we test memory kits from now on – Reference configs with all current DDR5 ICs and DDR4 G1 in synthetics and (no) games

Why there haven’t been any RAM tests from me/us for a while, why we won’t have any gaming benchmarks in our RAM tests and how we want to test RAM kits for their real differences in the future, you’ll learn in the following piece. In addition, this should serve as a basic article, which will be linked accordingly in upcoming [...]


The initial analysis: Detect PC problems at an early stage and get justice in the event of a dispute | Practice

Although my topic has been preached by the old hands in the PC field in forums for decades and is often the approach of any solution to performance problems, the same questions keep popping up from less experienced users. I hope to reach them with this article on our professional platform and maybe there is one or the other info for everyone else [...]


The big Ryzen 7000 Memory and OC Tuning Guide – Infinity Fabric, EXPO, Dual-Rank, Samsung and Hynix DDR5 in Practice test with Benchmarks and Recommendations

AMD’s new Ryzen 7000 desktop CPUs, based on the Zen4 micro-architecture, still use the same chiplet design as their predecessors, with a few small but not negligible changes. Igor already gave details about this in yesterday’s big review. Today we want to look at how to configure the new CPUs as optimally as possible and for this we [...]


One last Hurrah for 5H16M?! – Corsair Dominator Platinum RGB DDR5-6600 CL32 2x 16 GB Kit Review with Teardown and Overclocking

With DDR5-6600 CL32, the kit from today’s review is not only the fastest RAM kit in Corsair’s portfolio but even market-wide in Europe, at least at this point. The exterior is the familiar Dominator Platinum RGB design, which we had even looked at 2 times before in tests. Accordingly, we will focus especially on the inner values of the [...]
