Update from 24/04/2019 at 09.30 In the meantime I have also been able to insert all chart graphics. A total of 12 additional pages, also with single graphics for all tested maps, have been added. I will now add the rest in real time. Also the conclusion, which above all reflects why Nvidia probably made such a tin top because of the drivers. But [...]

Yes, is Easter already? At least there are companies that think that Easter and the rabbits can be taken somewhere again... No matter. So it doesn't smell like fresh birch branches, but a lot of work. :(
Cool Giveaway: we are giving away a Raijintek Orcus 240 All-in-One Compact Water Cooling in Forum 4x | Until April 14, 2019
The suffering with the online buying behaviour of the packaging rip-offs and return eraise is already annoying enough for shops and distributors. But there is another category of creative defect inventors, some of whom even manage to find defects in unpacked products. So almost the X-ray view through the sealed box or the supposedly unsuccessful [...]
Important preliminary remarks and setup At the beginning, of course, there was the consideration of how I should measure the whole thing as reproducibly and plausibly as possible. Do I take a mix of multiple games or just one with consistent results and a longer runtime? In the end, after many attempts, I opted for the latter, because it also [...]
Raijintek Samos NV2080 Ti RBW in exclusive review – A VGA water block as a price breaker with passable performance
Icebreakers and price breakers arenot quite accidental lycomal and so I was looking forward to the Raijintek Samos NV 2080 Ti RBW, which trudged in as a pre-model directly from the manufacturer here. Well, there was no final packaging yet and there was still some improvisation, but the product itself was final, if already used. And one thing I can [...]
Headphone Amplifier Sennheiser GSX 1000 in test – Surround meets design, but is that enough? | igorsLAB
As a man, you forgive a beautiful woman for a lot of things, but does that also apply to technology? I am actually more of a fact-based person who can also live with an open wire if the performance is right. And then there's a part like that, which looks really good. But can the Sennheiser GSX 1000 score just as well in terms of acoustic [...]
Nvidia Quadro RTX 4000 review – low-cost professional offshoot with surprising performance | igorsLAB
I don't want to spoil the end result at the beginning, but if you first benchmark the predecessor Quadro P4000 as a direct comparison, only to then have to reach unplanned but curiously on the shelf and also to flatten a Quadro P5000 with it gallantly, then pinch two times in the forearm. Especially since you can get this smallest RTX-Quadro [...]
What lasts for a long time will be really good? With too much euphoria it is always such a thing and so I spoil it at the beginning: it is not a revolution, but has become a solid NVMe SSD for the M.2 slot. But it took more than a year between the announcement at CES 2018 and the real launch. And that with the prices? At the moment, pretty much [...]
If you have always wanted to know what goes with a Radeon VII and the current drivers STABIL, if you overclock at maximum, this article with many details and the appropriate video is directly recommended...
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 6GB with board partner cards from MSI – Something is moving (not just the pixels)
New Baby-Turing, New Opportunity? AMD is putting pressure on low Polaris prices and Nvidia is following in the way. Performance-wise and - you will rub your eyes - also at the price. How quickly the GeForce GTX 1060 could get into disarray must (and will) show in this test. So it's really exciting...
Important preliminary remarks I admit that motherboard tests are complex and often ungrateful for the tester, because the readership remains quite manageable, as long as it is, for example, an enthusiast platform like the Socket 2066. Nevertheless, I find it very exciting to observe what would be possible and also if you as a manufacturer make a [...]
The country needs new benchmarks! Various games in several resolutions with the emphasis on gain by subvolts or an OC with a converted Radeon VII. We evaluate everything: Frame-Times. Percentile, variances, the smoothness of the gradient and much more than bar and curve charts as an overview or individual evaluation. There is nothing more to do [...]
The Hall of Fame (HoF for short) has been the spearhead of the individual performance classes at KFA2 (Galax) for years. It is easy to argue about design and not being, but white cards are rare and are highly sought after because it is hard to get anywhere else. The manufacturer also offers with this card a lot of features, which can only be found [...]
Graphics card price question: Why a lot of things just cost a lot and in the end nobody really benefits from it | Editorial
You have to look at it completely without emotion and interest, but in the end many building blocks combine to form a very conspicuous and above all rather unattractive picture. A little stocktaking with some background information I couldn't resist so close to the weekend...
RTG Radeon Tweaker Group – AMD Radeon VII Mods, Tweaks, Subvolts and Overclocks Made Easy | igorsLAB
The RTG (Radeon Tweaker Group) is a group of those who have already made it their mission since AMD's Polaris and later Also Vega to make some overvoltage and unnecessarily hot Radeon what one would like as an end customer: to a faster and significantly more efficient Graphics card.
Alphacool Ice Block GPX-N Plexi Light M02 for the RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 and RTX 2070 in 380-Watt Hardness Test | igorsLAB
New revision, new happiness? Let's see what Alphacool made of the ice block GPX, because there is now a new model M02, which is compatible with both the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080, and the RTX 2070. Today's test has to show how well all this performs and where you can classify the cooler in direct comparison to your competitors. In my [...]
Corsair upgrades its Dominator series with the Dominator Platinum RGB DDR4 3600 (and other clock rates) technically and visually again, so that a test seemed quite convenient to me to question it. What all this then brings in practice must be proven by the test scenario, which is deliberately designed in a practical way, because all synthetic [...]
Yes, I did it: Purely out of curiosity, cut a complete review of a graphics card as a video. Well, as a double burden, of course, such a thing does not last in the long run, but the learning factor is of course extremely high. The prices for all possible cards are currently in free fall and so it offers a (retrospective) review of this middle [...]
Metro Exodus and RTX On – a first test, lots of pictures and information about Nvidia's second RTX cracker
Metro Exodus is THE hotly anticipated game thanks to the support of Nvidia's ray tracing and DLSS features. Today's first look at performance focuses specifically on the impact of these two features, for the details with all the maps I intentionally took more time, because it's worth looking at twice. But this first part says a lot and [...]
Laboratory Diary: Heating Analysis on the Motherboard for Our Tests with an Aorus X299 Master | igorsLAB
If you want to do something new and right, then the effort in the preparation is often enough more than just immense. But analyses of heat generation on and the cooling performance of motherboards are to become one of our unique selling points for the upcoming reviews. How something like that can crash the weekend, I'll show you today.
