CRYORIG Official Statement Regarding Skylake PCB Concerns

CRYORIG Official Statement Regarding Skylake PCB Concerns We at CRYORIG have the following information and statement to make, regarding the recent news and discussion regarding damaged PCB’s on Skylake CPU’s, which many in the industry believe is caused by abnormal heatsink mounting pressure during transportation of the PC system. First of all we want to assure users of CRYORIG products that currently no CRYORIG heatsinks have displayed this problem, either through media reports, third party sales channels or internal testing. CRYORIG heatsinks are fully compatible with socket 1151 processors, and follow specifications set forth by CPU manufacturers. But as a note of precaution we suggest users to lay their PC system flat (with the heatsink in a vertical position) whenever they are transporting their PC system. Based on the information and testing reports we currently have at hand, although CRYORIG’s own products did not show this problem, we have derived the following suggestions and insight into the Skylake PCB damage problem. From our observation the cause of the bent/damaged PCB is caused by the combination of two factors. A) High mounting pressure from the CPU heatsink mounting system, with no flexibility in the system. B) Increased directional force created by the weight of the heatsink and movement of the PC chassis. In the cases that have been reported by media, it holds true that these issues have only been observed in “Pre-Built” systems. These systems ...

AMD FreeSync is Advancing, Adding New Features

The evolution of AMD FreeSync AMD is enabling FreeSync support over HDMI in early 2016, making smooth gaming experiences more accessible to everyone. FreeSync through HDMI will be supported on all AMD APUs and GPUs that already support FreeSync via DisplayPort, and AMD is working with ecosystem partners including LG, Samsung and Acer to deliver FreeSync over HDMI-compatible displays. Potential use cases include: More affordable mainstream monitors, 70% of which lack a DisplayPort connector External monitors for notebooks with an HDMI port connected to FreeSync-ready Radeon graphics AMD is also introducing the first notebook with a validated AMD FreeSync panel, the Lenovo Y700, which is exclusively available from Best Buy USA starting at $899. The Lenovo Y700 features the AMD FX-8800P “Carrizo” APU and Radeon R9 M380 Graphics with a direct drive LCD display and a 40-60Hz dynamic refresh range. AMD and its partners have now announced or shipped 40 displays across the DisplayPort and HDMI interfaces, making AMD FreeSync the world’s foremost dynamic refresh technology by 2:1. High Dynamic Range (HDR) compatibility As consumers start to demand higher-quality monitors, HDR technology is emerging to set an excitingly high bar for overall display quality. HDR panels are characterized by: Brightness between 600-1200 cd/m2 of luminance, with an industry goal to reach 2000 Contrast ratios that closely mirror human visual sensitivity to contrast (SMPTE 2084) And the Rec.2020 col...
