Sound Blaster Jam

 

The names Creative and Sound Blaster have become synonymous over the years for their audio products and just hearing the name Sound Blaster garners about the same respect as the name Porsche! Which is where we get to the Sound Blaster Jam Bluetooth Headphones that will be featured in this review.

Creative has a rich history dating back to 1981 with the vision and inspiration to revolutionize the role multimedia interfaces with our PC’s and devices to enrich the users everyday lives. They originally took the industry by storm with their line of innovative sound cards and over the years it has continued to do so with its innovative line of products. In this review we will examine and evaluate the Sound Blaster Jam Bluetooth headset.

Packaging and Specifications

The packaging for the Sound Blaster Jam Bluetooth headset is Sound Blasters signature black and red packaging with plastic bubble that allows the user to view the headset through the packaging on the shelf or peg at their local store.  As with the last Sound Blaster product I reviewed it shares the same proud statement about how over 400 million Blaster Products have been sold and this figure does not count the motherboards with SB audio built in!

On the rear of the packaging you find the same signature black and red back ground with white text describing the many features that the Jam has. Some of these features are the long battery life of 12 hours, built in controls, bass enhancement and the ability to use it wired in addition to the Bluetooth mode.

Undervolting the RTX 3080 and the RTX3090

What if you could find a way to lower both the temperature and the power consumption of your new GPU while still getting almost the same performance? Well, there is. It is called undervolting. Since the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 came out there has been a lot of talk about undervolting them to get better thermals while still getting kick-ass performance and of course I decided I wanted to try it out myself. In the following pages you can both read on how to do it yourself but also get an idea how it will affect both the performance but also the thermals (and noise level).

At the same time Nvidia released the excellent RTX 3080 they also released the RTX 3090, a successor to both the RTX 2080 Ti and the Titan RTX. While the RTX 3080 comes with 16 GB VRAM, Nvidia has put a whopping 24 GB VRAM on the RTX 3090. In addition the RTX 3090 comes with 10496 CUDA cores (up from 8704 for the RTX 3080), 82 Streaming Multiprocessors, a wider memory interface and almost 1 TB/s in memory bandwith. Today I am looking at the Gigabyte RTX 3090 Eagle OC 24 GB. As the name implies it comes with a (minor) overclock. How much faster is it than the Gigabyte RTX 3080 Eagle OC? Is it worth the extra money? Read on to to get the answers on these and many other questions.
