兼顧遊戲與影音之頂級筆電 - DELL New!Alienware 17入手解析

Gaming中文名稱通常稱為電競,也就是專注於遊戲的意思
對於Notebook來說,好幾年前就有這名詞,但近幾年能見度才提高
對於Desktop PC來說,以往大都會以OC為主打,追求更高效能
不過近年來因為PC效能過剩的狀況,OC市場已經慢慢地沒那麼吃香
Notebook有越來越多的品牌開始推出中高階Gaming筆電產品
而PC方面有關於Gaming MB或是相關零組件也越來越多
Gaming不止是電競遊戲的代名詞,更要包含高效能或是影音享受的規格



美商DELL在Notebook領域多年來經常位居全球前兩大,並致力於許多高階筆電
像是Gaming領域有Alienware外星人系列,並且也有高階美工繪圖的筆電產品
這兩種高階領域筆電在一般消費市場是較為少見,價位也是落在高階市場

追求6C12T之多工極致效能 - Intel Core i7-4960X效能解析

Intel先前於2011年末推出LGA 2011架構的最高階Extreme平台
市場上的定位與每年都會更新的中高階LGA 1155或LGA 1150有些不同
LGA 2011對於平台更新週期約三年一次,搭配選擇性也簡單許多
CPU通常只有三款,支援晶片組除了C606之外,其他清一色都是X79



LGA 2011剛推出時搭載三款Core i7 CPU,架構為Sandy Briidge-E
經過近兩年的時間,在去年9月多開始推出新架構,也就是Ivy Bridge-E
腳位延用LGA 2011,先前擁有X79 MB的使用者只要更新BIOS即可支援

Both OC and Gaming, GIGABYTE G1.SNIPER5 Complete Guide


GIGABYTE has OC and Gaming series in their high end segment.
For most users, Gaming series is more practical.
Besides high end audio and LAN chips, it also has average above OC ability.
As this reason, there are more and more Gaming products in the market.

Gaming series is still G1 product line. There are 2 models in the beginning.
High end is G1.SNIPER 5 and mid end is G1.SNIPER M5.
M5 is M-ATX design. Recently, I saw they launched a new G1.SNIPER Z87.
It?s a par value ATX model. The imaginary enemy should be ASUS ROG HERO.

G1.SNIPER5is high end MB, so the components and accessories are richer than general boards.
The box is similar to past high end MB. Dimension is quite big.
