Overview of the processor Intel Core i5-4690K. What is under the cover of Devil’s Canyon? / Processors and memory

So, the middle of this year was marked by the renewal of Intel’s line of processors for personal computers, conducted without the traditional introduction of a new microarchitecture. Emerging problems with the commissioning of 14-nm technology delayed the release of the next generation of Broadwell processors, so Intel had to come out of the situation […]

Overview of Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4 memory modules (HX424C15FBK4 / 32 and HX421C14FBK4 / 32) / Processors and memory

Together with one of the main novelties of the past year – the LGA2011-v3 platform and Haswell-E processors – the new memory, DDR4 SDRAM, also began to come into use. But, unlike fresh processors and motherboards, at the time of its appearance on the market this memory could not hit the public either with sky-high […]

Overview of Kingston HyperX Savage DDR3 memory modules (HX318C9SRK4 / 32 and HX324C11SRK4 / 32) / Processors and memory

The memory standard DDR4 SDRAM came to personal computers about a year ago. But despite this, it has not gained much popularity, as until recently there was only one platform with its support – LGA2011-3. It is clear that such a premium high-performance platform could not become a good conductor of the new technology on […]

Overview of memory modules Kingston HyperX Fury DDR4-2666 (HX426C15FBK2 / 16) / Processors and memory

In recent months, we have witnessed a serious decline in the prices of computer memory. Globally, this process was influenced by quite ordinary market factors: weak demand and excess supply. However, if you pay attention to the cost of individual types of memory, there is another tendency: the new DDR4 SDRAM loses in price much […]

Overview of memory modules Kingston HyperX Fury DDR3L-1866 (HX318LC11FBK2 / 8) / Processors and memory

To be honest, we thought that we would not have to do DDR3 SDRAM tests. After the appearance of the LGA1151 and LGA2011-3 platforms, this standard systematically yields to the place of newer and faster DDR4 memory, and the replacement process is very fast. So, it is predicted that DDR4 will dominate DDR3 in the […]

Overview of the processor Intel Core i7-6950X Extreme Edition / Processors and memory

admin admin 2017-09-05 The fact that in early summer, Intel is going to update its high-performance platform for enthusiasts, LGA2011-v3, has been known for a long time. It is only natural that the microarchitecture of the Broadwell family, following the server processors, should come to multi-core Core i7, which, in fact, are […]

Overview of the Patriot Viper 4 PV416G320C6K (DDR4-3200, 2 x 8 GB) memory / Processors and memory

Which memory should be preferred for systems based on the Skylake or Broadwell-E processors? The question is far from idle. The introduction of DDR4 SDRAM opened up considerable opportunities for the industry, and memory manufacturers, who are clearly bored with the long stagnation from DDR3, launched a fierce competition aimed at conquering new boundaries of […]

Overview and testing of the DDR4 GeIL Evo X memory kit with 2 × 8 GB volume

GeIL, founded in 1993, is the manufacturer of one of the widest spectrum of RAM, which currently includes models from still somewhere in demand DDR2 SDRAM to high-speed DDR4 with a frequency of 4266 MHz. The further increase in frequencies is limited at the moment by the technological process, and therefore the company decided to […]
