The Zotac GeForce GeForce 780 Ti AMP! comes with a 15% Core overclock and a 3% overclock to the memory. We will later in the review see what this means for performance. A hint; it helps.

Some of the new features of the GeForce 780 Ti are: 

  • GPU Boost 2: Same feature as on the GTX 780 and the GTX Titan where the GPU is dynamically overclocked.
  • Nvidia display overclocking: the ability to push a compatible display to allow for higher refreshrate than 60 Hz
  • Video encoding: Kepler features a dedicated H.264 video encoder called NVENC.
  • Adaptive vsync: Adaptive VSync is Nvidia’s way of providing a smooth game playability even when the frame rates falls below 60 fps.
  • Game streaming: With this card in the system you can stream games to a Nvidia Shield. It also sounds like we might  see some more game streaming support in the future.
  • Shadowplay: We now can record game videos via Nvidia Shadowplay.

For more information about these features and more head over to our first GeForce 780 Ti-article.

Naturally the Zotac GeForce GeForce 780 Ti AMP! comes with its own features too.

The main feature apart from the overclock is the Triple Silencer Enhanced cooler with three fans which promises not only to be much quieter than the reference cooler but also keep the card cooler.

The Steam Deck – Valve delivers an excellent PC handheld

Valve is an interesting company that seems to try to be a lot of things at the same time. Games company, software hub/store and hardware company. Valve is all of these. When it comes to hardware the company has had mixed success. I think many of us remember the Steam Machines. These compact computers running SteamOS, a Linux based OS, were supposed to make Windows PC’s obsolete for gaming. They didn’t succeed. Valve also released a specific controller, the Steam Controller, which also did not exactly set the world on fire. In hindsight though both these products have paved the way for the product I am testing today, the Steam Deck, Valves attempt to compete with the Nintendo Switch in the handheld market.

Crucial P5 Plus 2TB

The Crucial P5 Plus is the successor the P5 that Crucial launched last year and is the first PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD from the company. The latest model dropped the 256GB model, so the starting available capacity for the P5 Pro is 500GB. Additionally, the drive is also available in 1TB and a new storage capacity of 2TB model. The P54 Plus is priced similar to the P5 though there is a slight bump in the price where drive is retailed at $107.99(500GB), $179.99(1TB), and $367.99(2TB). The 2TB model is definitely a welcome addition and if we judge by the price per gigabyte, the 1TB model would be the most economical option. Despite the slight bump in the price, the P5 Plus are still priced competitively against its competitors. The question is, just how well would the performance backing it up? We shall find it out today.
