Leadtek 7800 GTX SLI

Reviews

NVIDIA’s new GeForce 7800 GTX clearly has been received very well by the hardware sites on the Internet. It is a very fast card. In fact, in some cases, it is as fast as having two GeForce 6800 Ultras in your machine.

Considering how fast the card is alone, I was very curious how fast it would be in SLI-mode. I’ve spent one month playing games just to get a feel for what two GeForce 7800 GTX's in SLI-mode can do. For our testing, I used two Leadtek GeForce 7800 GTX cards. This article should give you an idea if it’s currently worth going with two GeForce 7800 GTX cards or not.

Full Review.

Ryzen 7 2700X CPUFreq Scaling Governor Benchmarks On Ubuntu Linux

With this week's Ryzen 5 2600X + Ryzen 7 2700X benchmarks some thought the CPUFreq scaling driver or rather its governors may have been limiting the performance of these Zen+ CPUs, so I ran some additional benchmarks this weekend. Those launch-day Ryzen 5 2600X / Ryzen 7 2700X Ubuntu Linux benchmarks were using the "performance" governor, but some have alleged that the performance governor may now actually hurt AMD systems... Ondemand, of course, is the default CPUFreq governor on Ubuntu and most other Linux distributions. Some also have said the "schedutil" governor that makes use of the kernel's scheduler utilization data may do better on AMD. So I ran some extra benchmarks while changing between CPUFreq's ondemand (default), performance (normally the best for performance, and what was used in our CPU tests), schedutil (the newest option), and powersave (if you really just care about conserving power).
