HyperX 32GB DDR4 Fury Memory Review

IMG_6970

Introduction With DDR4 Memory now starting to mature since its release with the X99 chipset, we are starting to see the market get flooded with more options and variety, many of which now providing great performance with high frequencies and lower cost. With more and more kits becoming available, the competition is getting more fierce everyday. Today we have the chance to take a look at the HyperX’s new budget friendly line up the Fury series DDR4 memory. At the launch of DDR4 memory, it primary features were offering lower voltage and higher native frequencies. DDR4 features a native speed of 2133MHz, which is really nothing to WOW over or about since we have seen these speeds with DDR3. However, the main updates are its newer JEDEC Culmination and Density, DDR4 memory components now provide better speeds and faster response while being more power efficient at the same time. The HyperX Fury memory we are going to be looking at today not only offers fast speeds of 2666MHz out of the box, but also offers the efficiency of lower voltage; with that in mind… we can see some great potential with additional performance once overclocked. We will be comparing results from Kingston’s (HyperX) previous line up from its DDR3 series all the way up to HyperX Predator DDR4 series we previous tested. But before we do that, let’s learn about who HyperX is.   Who HyperX is: “HyperX is the high-performance product division of Kingston Technology, the world’s la...

Compare DirectX 12, Mantle and DirectX 11 with 3DMark

Compare DirectX 12, Mantle and DirectX 11 with 3DMark We’re excited to introduce our new 3DMark API Overhead feature test – the world’s first independent test for measuring differences in DirectX 12, DirectX 11 and Mantle API performance. It’s also the very first public application to use DirectX 12 full stop. This is cutting edge stuff Developed with input from AMD, Intel, Microsoft, NVIDIA, and the other members of our Benchmark Development Program, the 3DMark API Overhead feature test lets you compare the performance of DirectX 12, DirectX 11, and Mantle. The purpose of the test is to compare the relative performance of different APIs on a single system, rather than the absolute performance of different systems. The API Overhead feature test is not a general-purpose GPU benchmark, and it should not be used to compare graphics cards from different vendors. (We are working on a DirectX 12 benchmark with game-like workloads, which we expect to release soon after the public launch of Windows 10.) Why is API overhead important? There has been much talk this year of new graphics APIs that let developers code ‘close to the metal.’ And though it’s natural to think of the GPU, the benefits of APIs with lower overhead are actually achieved by making better use of multi-core CPUs to streamline code execution and eliminate software bottlenecks, particularly for draw calls. A draw call happens when the CPU tells the GPU to draw an object on ...
