Gigabyte TweaKING OC Event: European Final

Gigabyte TweaKING OC Event

European Final

Manufacturer: Gigabyte

Gigabyte are well known for its overclocking events: the Gigabyte Open Overclocking Championship (GO OC) ran earlier this year and encouraged competitors to overclock their Core i7 CPUs using any means possible, and ran Super Pi 8M and 3DMark 06 for the best scores.

The TweaKING event in Paris is the European leg of this new style of OC tournament. Less emphasis is placed on the quality of CPU and more is placed on the ability of the teams to tweak the memory and motherboard. How? The CPU frequency is capped at 4GHz, meaning the teams had to crank the memory and baseclock on their Lynnfield i5-750 CPUs up as high as possible to achieve the best result.

This still puts an emphasis on CPU quality to some degree, but its also brings the motherboard back into play more, which is an angle Gigabyte obviously wants to push. There was no limitation on the OS tweaks allowed too; so WinXP hacks a plenty were rolled out: services were neutered, registry was copiously tweaked and anything deemed excess was cut off.

However, every team had a standard set of hardware to use: nothing extra was allowed, not even an additional fan. Even screwdrivers were provided!

Ham Radio Gets New Life:

E-mail Print PDF
VANDERBURGH CO, IN (WFIE) - Ham radio operators already provide an invaluable communications link during disasters, like Hurricane Katrina and even right here at home after tornados ripped through the Tri State in 2005. A new system though will help ham radio operators reach out even further the next time disaster strikes. "We always say that ham radio talks where others fail," said ham radio operator Bob Pointer. Pointer, better known to fellow amateur radio ops as N9XAW, gets excited to talk about his hobby over the airwaves. "Just the other day I talked to a gentleman over in Tazmania, Australia just like he was across town," said Pointer. It's partly that ability that is helping to breathe new life into ham radio, what some might consider an antiquated form of communication, left to people tinkering with electronics. "It's a fail-proof type of system to have. A guy can pop the hood up on his car, hook it up to the battery and be operational," said Vanderburgh County EMA Director Sherman Greer. "They used it in Katrina. It was the only communications they had in Katrina." After attending an emergency management conference discussing earthquake preparedness, Greer began thinking about using ham radio operators as a backup mode of communication should everything else fail. "I don't think people really realize if we do have a 7.7 earthquake within this area here, how devastating that's going to be," said Greer. "Communications would probably be very sparse."

Cheating in Game Design

E-mail Print PDF
One day, the cheapest laptop will have a quantum graphics computer that can render pixel perfect photorealistic images at 70 frames per second with infinite complexity.

Until that happens, games programmers will do bodges, cheats and sneaky optimisations that you probably don't notice.

I remember a comedy sketch from years ago that ridiculed the kids puppet show Stingray for having a character in a high-tech wheelchair-style device that he slid around on. The joke was that this made him easier to film as a puppet, because it was always the walking that looked rubbish. Game developers do the same thing all the time.
