Fast, Faster, Fastest! Overclockers are an odd breed to say the least, taking a perfectly adequate processor, dragging it kicking and screaming to it’s physical limits, often with dire consequence. Overclockers apparently live to push the bounderies that hardware makers set as benchmarks. At a very basic level overclocking is about squeezing that last tiny bit of juice out of what was a bog standard processor.
At an extreme level, overclocking can mean using liquid nitrogen to obtain speeds that perform set tasks in world record times and doing this has become a globally-competitive ‘sport’. Through establishing which components most-easily break in their quest to push performance boundaries, overclockers have helped make consumer level computers become faster and more stable.
It seems from all the ranting that overclockers are once again in lust with Intel – Intel’s new Platform, Ivy Bridge seems to have them all gaga – Dino Strklevic, an overclocker and abc.net.au contributor says “What an amazing new platform! Intel has finally given overclockers the jackpot! The new king is in town and geeks call it Ivy Bridge – Intel calls it 3rd gen Core processors – it formally launched in Australia last week :: Read the full article »»»»
The transistor is considered by many to be the greatest invention of the 20th century, frankly it should be up there with the discovery of fire.
It is the building block of every gadget and make life easier device made today with the 3D transistor being an important step in its evolution :: Read the full article »»»»
