Interested in overclocked memory, but don't feel like doing all the down n' dirty CAS timing tweaks on your own? PNY's got your back. The company just announced that it's adding new 2133 MHz and 1866 MHz memory kits to its XLR8 lineup of high-performance RAM sticks for folks who want even more oomph out of their memory.
In the raging battle between AMD and Nvidia over DirectX 11 supremacy, AMD has had a decided edge in price/performance ratios, if not raw performance. Now, Nvidia aims to rectify that with the GTX 465.
Like the GTX 470 (and even the GTX 480, for that matter), the GTX 465 uses the same Fermi chip, with key functional units disabled. This may be by choice or because of yield issues, given the massive size of Nvidia’s latest progeny. Whatever the case, it allows Nvidia to bring a card to market that’s generally priced just a little less than AMD’s sweet-spot card, the Radeon HD 5850. We’ve seen prices for the PNY card at around $280, as opposed to an average price ranging from $290 to $300 for the HD 5850.
