39 700-850W power supplies review: power for your Skylake-X or Threadripper
Skylake-X and Threadripper CPUs, and GTX 1080 Ti and Vega GPUs have one thing in common: they consume a lot of power. If you want to build a high-end system, you have to choose a fitting power supply. We tested 39 models that can supply 700 or up to and including 850 watts.

During the last couple of years we have gotten used to processors offering improved performance as well as lower power consumption with every new generation. However, this trend seems to have come to and end for now. The brand new Intel Skylake-X processors consume (in part due to the increase in core count) a lot of energy, which can also be said about AMD's Ryzen Threadripper. While the Nvidia 10-series GPUs consume less energy than the models in the 9-series, the 1080 Ti (thanks to its enormous amount of transistors) still consumes more power than every other common Nvidia GPU of the last couple of years.

4K Video Editing PC - December 2017
A few years ago, your PC just couldn't be fast enough for digital video processing. By now every average PC is able to process Standard Definition (PAL 720x576) as well as HD Ready, but technology doesn't stand still. By now just about every smartphone can record in Full HD and the new frontier is Ultra HD, also known as 4K. This resolution and the 'accompanying' codec HEVC / H.265 require seriously powerful hardware.

That's the reason why a powerful PC can still really make a difference. You need a fast processor, lots of storage capacity, and good monitor able to display 4K resolutions.

4K digital video editing requires a hefty amount of processing power, and our video editing PC delivers that in spades. Often overlooked in off-the-shelf PCs is the power supply - a video editing PC will be running longer and more frequently at full load, which stresses the PSU quite a bit. We choose high-end components that will work fine for some years down the road, ensuring stable operation for the rig's entire lifetime.

PowerColor Red Devil Vega 56 8GB Review
Finally, the first custom Vega boards have hit the market. In this review, we take a devilish PowerColor Radeon RX Vega 56 with 8GB graphics memory for a spin. The 56 is a more affordable graphics card in the Vega range, and might actually be the better proposition value for money wise.

Serious Statistics Pt. 2: The Sync Encounter
I am not completely sure if a conclusion is really necessary for this article, but why not? As is perhaps not surprising, playing in a Borderless window under DirectX 11 results in the highest frame latency, because of omnipresent Desktop Window Manager's double buffering. When playing in Fullscreen or under Vulkan, as far as PresentMon/OCAT could tell only V-Sync of the in-game options actually introduced any latency. Of the driver-side options, it was again only the basic v-sync option to add latency, according to PresentMon/OCAT, with the Fast Sync, Enhanced Sync, and Frame Rate Target Control all appearing to send frames out just as quickly as they were available to send.
