No benchmarks so far
Usually, when the US American overclocker Vince K|ngp|n Lucido posts an overclocking result it is something serious that is worth reporting. This time he used one NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti card and pushed the clock speeds beyond 3 GHz. Although he didn’t post any scores on HWBot or even in the Futuremark database for that matter, we’re pretty confident that we might see some very impressive scores appear rather sooner than later.

DDR4 rainbow unicorns from Corsair
Corsair is finally bringing RGB lighting to their Vengeance DDR4 memory lineup. Memory modules were some of the very last components allowing for RGB lighting, since it can be quite tricky to create a way to control the color on the DIMMs. At the moment the company is offering four models but we will see more quite soon.
Improves memory compatibility
Chinese website jumps the gun
According to leak from the Chinese forum tieda.baidu, there are what appear to be the first benchmarks on the upcoming AMD Ryzen 5 CPUs which should become available next month. The forum post shows the performance of the hexa core CPU in CPU-Z and Cinebench R15 benchmarks. According to what we have heard so far, AMD will introduce four different CPUs, including two six-cores and two quad-cores. This way AMD is planning to attack Intel's Core i5 CPU series lineup.
Samsung has expanded its curved monitor lineup with a new monitor featuring a 27-inch panel and 1920 x 1080 (FullHD) resolution as well as a 1800R curvature. Furthermore the monitor comes with support for AMD FreeSync which allows for a variable refresh rate that ranges between 48 and 72Hz. Unfortunately there is no VESA mount.

Most likely Skylake-EP
The first result of a 32 core Intel Xeon processor have surfaced and the leak comes from the Geekbench database. Although there isn’t a lot of information out there on this particular CPU, it can be assumed that the CPU tested was a Skylake-EP chip that was sitting on a Purley platform. The Geekbench result is pretty impressive, with the CPU hitting over 50'000 points in the multi-core benchmark.

Available in 4 to 6 months
According to leak from CanardPC, AMD might is already working on a new high-end Ryzen CPU socket which will be compatible with 16 core and 32 thread CPUs. Furthermore this new socket and chipset will support quad-channel DDR4 memory, ramping up to become a fierce competitor for Intel's X99 platform.
Specifications are online
Thanks to the latest leak from Benchlife, AMD's RX 500 series specifications are now online. According to Benchlife, AMD will be moving from GlobalFoundries 14nm LPE (Low Power Early) to 14nm LPP (Low Power Plus), although at this time we haven't any proof that AMMD didn't run 14nm LPP on the original Polaris chips.

Windows 10 mandatory
According to a news from Microsoft they are blocking Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 updates if you’re running a Ryzen, Bristol Ridge or Kaby Lake based system. During the past weeks we’ve read several news about Windows 7 supporting Ryzen and Kaby Lake and this is clearly linked to Microsoft itself. The company is refusing to support these new CPUs on any OS other than Windows 10.
