AMD Ryzen - Single-Rank Versus Dual-Rank DDR4 Memory Performance
After finishing up our DDR4 memory scaling article on an AMD Ryzen processor with an AMD X370 chipset powered board we were left wondering if memory performance and scaling was similar on different AMX X370 motherboards from different manufacturers. We gathered up the MSI X370 XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM ($299.99), GIGABYTE GA-AX370-Gaming 5 ($194.99) and ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero ($254.99) motherboards as the three boards that we were going to try out. Looking at the 'big 3' motherboard markers should give us a pretty good idea if there are any big differences to be had with regards to the memory subsystem.

G.Skill Trident Z 16GB DDR4-3866 CL18 kit memory review
A short while ago we discussed fourteen DDR4 memory kits from all segments, the fastest of which were clocked at 3200 or 3333 MHz. G.Skill sent us a new set last month, with a clock speed of no less than 3866 MHz: a huge stop forward at once. Can you go even higher as an overclocker?

On offer from the MSI GS43VR is a powerful specification which revolves around Intel's Core i7-7700HQ, 16GB DDR4 and then 1080p champion by way of the renowned 6GB GTX 1060. These key components supply a strong platform which is further strengthened by the robust Samsung SM951 SSD.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080Ti Founders Edition Review
Stock performance metrics show that NVIDIA's target of a 35% boost in performance over the GTX 1080 was not an idle boast. In every game at every resolution, we see big performance deltas over the GTX 1080 FE. With that kind of FPS performance, you would think that there is not much more left, but you would be wrong. NVIDIA leaves some meat on the bone for the overclocking crowd. Performance takes another jump by overclocking. I was able to massage the GPE Boost 3.0 clock on the core up to just over 2000MHz without any additional voltage. The new 11Gbps rated G5X memory is able to reach well above last year's introductory 10Gbps G5X memory. I was able to push to just under 1500MHz again without much more than some tuning time and no additional costs other than my pride when I could not stick the memory over the 1500MHz threshold. Hey, it's free FPS! Go get it! Using a second card in SLI is only going to improve your gaming performance and experience, especially at 4K, where even a single GTX 1080 Ti delivers FPS that could be called buttery smooth!

Toshiba OCZ VX500
When it comes to SSDs most people these days are starting to focus on NVMe drives or at least M.2 drives. There is still interest and need for SATA drives as well though. A lot of the SATA drives have been focused on cheaper TLC based NAND but there is still a need for MLC NAND and that’s where the OCZ VX500 that was introduced last fall has been hanging out. It’s designed as a replacement for the OCZ Vector 180. They have dropped the Barefoot 3 controller and moved to a Toshiba based TC358790. That combined with the MLC NAND has me excited to finally take a look at the VX500 and see how it performs and where it fits in today’s marketplace.
