With $10,000 US cash prize for the champion
G.SKILL has announced its 4th annual OC World Cup overclocking competition which attracts some of the biggest names in the overclocking community, not only due to the US $10,000 cash prize for the champion. This time also our Italian overclocking team member Franco “RULE” Valtulina will be there as well.
Quite an impressive thing
It looks like Lenovo is going to sell a new high-end gaming notebook. The company has just launched the so called Legion Y920 Gaming Notebook, which comes with a 17.3-inch, Full HD screen with IPS panel and NVIDIA G-Sync technology. Apart from that the rest of the specs are pretty interesting as well.
Thanks to microcode update
ASUS has released a new beta BIOS which includes an AGESA Microcode update improving memory compatibility on their Crosshair VI Hero. According to ASUS, the updated microcode should enhance memory compatibility in combination with high clocking memory, adding support for 3466MHz, 3600MHz, 3733MHz, 3866MHz and 4000MHz memory multipliers without the need of BCLK overclocking.
But just a soft-launch
A slight upgrade for the high-end ASUS AM4 model
Hard to classify
A few months ago Lian Li launched the PC-O11, which is a cube-shaped dual-chamber case like the PC-O8 that's been around for quite a while already. Like the previous models, also the new PC-O12WX comes with an elegant design and the left side panel as well as the front panel are made from tempered glass.
Based on ATX form factor
The ASUS ROG X370-F Strix Gaming is another AMD AM4 motherboard that should help filling gaps in the ASUS AM4 lineup. So far there are only three X370 motherboards from ASUS, which are the Prime X370-Pro, the ROG Crosshair VI Hero and the ROG Crosshair VI Hero AC. Compared to the ROG Crosshair VI Hero, the ROG X370-F Strix Gaming should be cheaper yet still pack quite a few features.

Upcoming MSI X299 Gaming Pro Carbon?
On their official Facebook page, MSI has shown another preview regarding their upcoming Intel X299 motherboard. So far this is the third teaser showing yet another area of another Intel X299 motherboard. Like the previous model the new one features a completely black color scheme with several RGB LEDs.
Sounds too good to be true, right?
It looks like we’re closing in on what appears to be another launch of an Intel CPU lineup. Otherwise there is no way explaining why there are this many leaks surfacing regarding unreleased products. Some forum user from Dutch website Hardware.info has apparently had his hands on an upcoming Intel Core i9 7900X (10 core) as well as an Intel core i9 7920X (12 core).

Together with TSMC and Globalfoundries
Judging by slides AMD’s CEO, Lisa Su, presented during their 2017 Financial Analyst Day, the company has aggressive plans advancing to 7nm manufacturing process technology. In this context it’s interesting to see that consumer and server CPUs as well as the graphics parts are to adopt the new process within the same time frame.
Ready for GT 1030
That was kind of expected
As we reported yesterday AMD is going to launch their first Vega based cards by the end of June for professional customers and the gaming are cards are to follow in the third quarter - hopefully. What’s not been covered so far is, that it looks like AMD is going to launch a water cooled version of their Vega cards for professionals.
