In many ways, Twitter is a terrible idea. When you make it extremely easy for people on the internet to be able to say the first thing that comes to mind, you know exactly what can come out of that. On the other hand, Twitter can be an excellent source of announcements for people who want to know what’s happening in a particular venue. As a community that tries to make the internet a slightly better place, PureOC is also trying to make the best out of the Twitter-verse as well! We’ll continue to tweet the usual news and review posts we publish, but we’re also making a concentrated effort to retweet announcements that come from hardware manufacturers. There’s just too much to keep up with for our poor freelance journalist, but @Pureoverclock can easily be a one-stop, quick-glance into the newest releases for PC builders. If you prefer to not have to follow all of the tech companies yourself, don’t worry. We got your back! Check out our feed below, don’t forget to follow us, and let us know on Twitter or in our forums how you like the new feed. Tweets by Pureoverclock



October News Round Up: SWIFTECH Apogee XL2, GAMER STORM Genome II, GTX 1050 Ti and More!

Welcome back to our second roundup of hardware news that happened this month. The CPU and GPU side of things may have slowed down a tad, but there’s a lot that happened with cooling and cases. Let’s dive in and get excited about what’s coming down the road! CPUs Let’s start out with an update on Kaby Lake.

Recently however, an i5-7500K sample was benchmarked and only showed about a 10% improvement over Skylake. This is actually pretty disappointing, especially considering that the 4970K is still a top tier single thread performer. On the plus side, it looks like all 100 series motherboards will be able to support Kaby Lake with a BIOS update, but I doubt many will see the need to upgrade from Skylake in such a short time table. At the time being, ASUS is the only brand this is confirmed for, but that’s a good indication that other manufactures will follow suit. We’re still a ways out from release so we can almost expect performance to fluctuate a bit more until closer to release. http://wccftech.com/intel-core-i5-7600k-kaby-lake-cpu-benchmarks/ http://wccftech.com/kaby-lake-support-asus-100-series-motherboards-confirmed/ GPUs The big news this month was the release of the GTX 1050 Ti and the 1050. Each GPU offers a great budget option for 1080p gaming while being extremely energy efficient. Rather than reinvent ...
