Hardware Leaderboard Update
Posted by newsbot on July 24th 2008



What changes did we implement this time around? First, we bumpedthe Q9300 processor up to a Q9550 and changed from a 780i SLI motherboard toan ASUS Rampage Formula motherboard based on the Intel X48 chipset. Why didwe move away from the NVIDIA chipset? The answer is in our GPU - we wentwith the Radeon HD 4870 512MB cards (a pair in CrossFire to be exact)bringing AMD back into the High End System Leaderboard for the first time inquite some time. We also updated to the VelociRaptor hard drive and XonarD2X PCIe sound card.
