Welcome Back!

I apologize for not getting this up and done sooner. Needless to say the forums, and the front page got hacked, we since then have locked things down, and things appear to be better over all.

I was able to get the front page done sooner, but the forums with all of its data was MUCH more difficult to deal with. Needless to say, I just finished it! YAHOO!

Just in time with Facebook about to take a nose dive, and doing other crazy things to people. (Censorship, etc etc).

Join Xtreme CPU's Folding Team

How would you like to participate in finding a cure for such diseases as Alzheimer's, Cancer, Huntington's and Parkinson's?

What if i told you it wouldn't cost you a penny?

Now what if i told you it doesn't require you to have any medical knowledge and it can be done while your performing your daily computer work/gaming?

You would be very interested in a program like that wouldn't you?

Well here is your chance. Come join Xtreme CPU's Folding@Home Team.

So what is Folding@Home?
Folding@Home is a distributed computing project. People from around the world download software to there computers that allows all the computers running the software to act as a large super computer. With this supercomputer scientist are able to study how proteins fold and miss fold.

So what is a Protein and what does it have to do with curring disease?
Proteins are like natures work horses. Before a protein can carry out its function they have to assemble themselves or Fold. Its when Proteins do not fold correctly, or misfold, that we get diseases like Alzheimer's, Cancer and the others mentioned above. Folding@Homes objective is to better understand how proteins fold so that they can figure out why these diseases happen. From there they are better able to find a cure.

How do i get involved?
Go to Stanford's Folding@Home page and download the client that best suites your computer. For more information about the different folding clients and which one you should use check the links below. Team Needs You
F@H Configuration Guide

Does this effect my computer's performance and does it bog down my Internet connection?
No, the clients are designed to use only the processing power your system isn't using. If your system requires more processing power then the F@H clients back off. F@H only connects to the Internet when it needs to download a new work package (WU) or when it needs to send a completed WU in.

You said something about a team?
Yes. As you complete WU you are awarded points based on the client your running, the WU's size and the amount of time you completed the WU in. You can start your own team or join an existing team helping the team work through the ranks of the more then 74000 teams. You can also work anonymously and not get involved in any teams. When you download and install your client you will be prompted to choose a user name and a team number. Xtreme CPU's team number is 75255. Once you are part of a team you can track your teams stats at EOC's Folding Stats Page. Here is XCPU's Folding stats. You will see there is a wleth of information there. Only the teams that are in the top 800 ranks get to see there folding stats.

How about those cool F@H images in your Sig?
Once you have submitted your first WU you will be able to add a Sig image that shows your folding stats. Check out our Sig Image Guide. There you will learn how to set up a sig image.

For more information check out the Folding@Home Home page and the Xtreme CPU F@H Section. If you have any questions about F@H feel free to post it in our F@H section.

  • Hexus: AMD shares some R9 Fury X Far Cry 4 UHD performance charts

    Impressive single GPU 4K performance. That memory bus at 4K must help a bunch.

    AMD continues to drip feed information about its upcoming Radeon R9 Fury range of graphics products. A few hours ago in Beijing, the chipmaker held a conference with a bit more depth to the details than in its own E3 event and the subsequent E3 PC Gaming show. At China's 'New Era of PC Gaming' presentation the attendees also saw some performance benchmarks. There is a live blog of the event at PCOnline and further slides published on EXPreview (both in Chinese).

    Below you will see AMD's official benchmark slide which illustrates the smooth gameplay on offer from an AMD Radeon R9 Fury X graphics card. The game under scrutiny was Far Cry 4, played in ultra settings in 4K. AMD claims this new graphics card can achieve smooth gameplay performance with an average 54fps, never dropping below 43fps.

    At the time of writing HEXUS doesn't use Far Cry 4 in benchmarking but AnandTech has used it for a few months for its comparative benchmarks. So included for reference below is a recent Far Cry 4 ultra quality 4K benchmark chart taken from Anand's Titan X review. This gives us an interesting indication of the 4K performance of the Fury X. Overall this is probably more helpful than the various leaked Futuremark benchmark results doing the rounds, for example.

    I've embedded some more of the nice and clear AMD slides from the Beijing event, via EXPreview, below.


    I have to add that LinusTechTips testing showed that the Gigabyte G1 980Ti was a mighty overclocker. At 1481Mhz it manages ~21% better performance than the stock 980Ti. Still this is OC vs Stock, if we're going to go off temps, one would assume the Fury X could also be overclocked extremely well.

    Looks like they just kept the R9 architecture, threw in a bunch more stream processors and a handful of TMUs, added some HBM on package and voila. AMD should have worked its core architecture more imo. Performance wise it looks damn nice though.

      My R9 290X did very well with 4K and now with the 295X, yeah it works VERY well with 4K60. Great cards.
