AMD High Performance Project- By Red1776
Hello OCN'ers, Some of you know me here as Red1776. I had been a reviewer for a few years mostly reviewing AMD products and am known for building a quadfire machine with the release of every new line of ATI/AMD GPU's going back to 2007 and the 3000 series.
Earlier this year I was 'Compelled' to leave my post at the tech site I was reviewing for having had enough of the politics and games that can accompany the reviewing game. After leaving I began speaking with the people at AMD about an idea I had for a project that if you wish, you can watch unfold right here at OCN.
There are many unique aspects of this project. Firstly there is no review guide to the project. Secondly Is the latitude I have been given. This latitude will become obvious in short order.
The readers digest version of the 'AMD High Performance Project' is what happens when a guy takes the best of AMD components and pushes them to the limits. The second part of the project will demonstrate that an 'enthusiast' is not only a person that can afford an $800 graphics card or $700 processor, but that features, flexibility, and the ability to do a surprising amount on a budget is every bit as important as an insane amount of FLOPS crammed into a case.
In this four part project, I am going to do both. On to the build logs... I will be building two machines for the project.
AMD A10-7850K APU
Asrock FM2A88X Extreme6+
16GB AMD Radeon 2133 Gamer Series RAM
AMD Dual Graphics
4 x R290X
All of the high quality sleeving materials we have here are from LutroO Customs, including the tools.
I want to thank Mike Landenberger of LutroO Customs Computer and Sleeving Solutions for they're participation in this project.
You will be seeing more of LutroO Customs quality work as the 'AMD High Performance Project' progresses.
As part of the AMD High performance Project I will be testing high resolution/Eyfintiy/and multi card scaling in benchmarks and in gaming as well as pushing the systems to their limits.
This project will be unlike anything you have seen before I hope and bring new insights into AMD hardware as well as a different way of quantifying and reviewing. I will update as often as I can. I hope you all enjoy the project.
