If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

:blink: They did? At any normal resolution they didn't offer much of anything at all.


Anyway - they look good and the price is right. The high frequency looks nice for not limiting your overclock in any way as well. :)

okay... okay... I had just barely woken up...
:P

On the synthetic benches they did pretty damn good.

Further testing would need to be done in order to confirm whether or not they actually at stock "ripped the other competitors a new hole" and whether or not overclocked "it just about destroys them."

I put zero faith in 3DMark other than as a synthetic benchmark. At normal resolutions what type of memory you have rarely makes more than 1-2% difference...even when the cost of high-end memory is often 30%+ higher.

Then again we live in the real world and not a synthetic one. Thus real world performance is the only factor to look at.


Now you're getting it A05 ;)

Unless you're like me and you bench (a lot) more than you play ;)

Some people are like slinkies - not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
