Today we find the GPU Flashback Archive delving into the not so distant past to focus on the NVIDIA 900 series of graphics cards, the first to use NVIDIA’s new Maxwell architecture which had already seen the light day in mobile GPU solutions, an indication of the direction that the company were taking at the time. Let’s take a look at the cards that were launched as part of the 900 Series, the improvements and changes that Maxwell brought and some of the more memorable scores that have been posted on HWBOT.

The first question one may well have regarding the NVIDIA 900 series is simple - what happened to the 800 series? To answer the question fully, you must first look at the direction that NVIDIA was moving at the time. A movement to expand its product offerings in order to compete in the quickly expanding mobile SoC market. The suddenly ubiquity of Android-based smartphones around the globe was fuelled in part by the development of mobile SoCs from Qualcomm, Samsung, Mediatek, Marvell, Allwinner and others. The traditional feature phone was quickly being replaced by smartphones that now required improved multi-core CPU performance, HD display support and, importantly from NVIDIA’s perspective, decent enough graphics processing to actually play 3D games. Intel and NVIDIA were two companies with plenty of R&D and marketing budget who sought to enter a new market to help bolster revenues during an inevitable slow down of desktop PC sales, a traditional cash cow for both.

Benchmarks applicable for points in 2019 - Poll

As 2019 is coming near, we are currently holding a poll over at the forums to see which benchmarks should still be applicable for points in 2019 and which not. The consensus is less benchmarks should have global points, but which exactly do you want to see removed or added? Cast your vote in the forums!

OCN Freezer' Burn Overclocking Competition running until jan 31st

Head over to if you want to participate in the annual Freezer’ Burn overclocking competition. 2400$ in prizes, very active community, split ambient and extreme cooling stages, they've got it all!

This competition was designed with the goal that everyone can participate and be competitive. Whether you are an experienced subzero overclocker or just starting and this is all new, you can learn and participate in a fair and even environment. There are separate categories for ambient cooled and extreme cooled computers. You will only be allowed to participate in one category, but you an change categories at any time. We learned alot from the last Freezer’ Burn competition and we decided to make one very fundamental change for this competition. The biggest and most important change is that we will not limit the CPU or core count in this competition. Simply put, we will allow every CPU ever made in this competition. You might be saying to yourself, hey that's not fair since I only have a 4 core CPU and others might have 32 core CPU’s. Well, we have an interesting solution to this problem, which will be described below in the 2D section. To take things a step further, we are only choosing 3D benchmark programs were the CPU does not influence the score. No matter what CPU you have, you can compete in a fair environment!

GALAX GOC 2018 Online Qualification Contest Ended - Submissions being evaluated

The GALAX GOC 2018 Qualification ended today, and the submissions made are being scrutinized the next 24 hours. Some submissions where rejected incorrectly due to a mixup the the GPUPI version restrictions, and might be allowed to enter the competition if they were initially submitted - but rejected by the engine - before the competition deadline.

Hold on tight, we will have the final ranking validated tomorrow at 19h CEST.

Intel Core i9 9900K launched, breaks 10 world records on day one

Intel just took the veil off the performance figures for its latest Z390 platform and the forthcoming Intel Core i9 9900K processor, an 8-core/16-thread Coffee Lake architecture chip that so far has broken 10 World Records and 11 Global First Places in the 8 cores CPU category. The new Intel Z390 chipset has also broken the DDR4 memory frequency record, pushing it to 5566MHz.
