    Default Just a suggestion...

    Hello one and all! I was just looking at my profile to make some additions, (didn't, yet) and noticed that I've been a member for a little over a year now. I must admit that now and then I check some of the other performance sites and have found PureOC to be one of the most professional and helpful around. One thing that is similar though, unless you know where to look, most of the performance guides are somewhat dated. Now I realize this would require a great amount of time to do, but, if the "Powers That Be" could put together a set of guides that reflect current tech. CPU's, GPU'S, and now we have APU's. AMD cpu's are fairly simple and straightforward, however Intel has what, 4-5 different sockets? Personally, I have very little knowledge of Intel products, but many people own or will own this type of system and find that they would like to tweak it a bit. Do the same rules apply for all sockets, or, are there any differences with each socket. Graphics cards have their own range of questions as well. Then of course there are APU's and what can be done with them. Of course, you can't leave out Memory and it's role in all of this. Now, for the last thing, Software! There are many utilities, applications, and benchmark programs. What would be considered a beginners "Performance Tool Box"? What would be good to add as your skill grows. Of course hardware recommendations would be worth noting as well.
    It's taken me quite a while to put this together, however, some of this might have been covered already. If so, then perhaps it's time to give it a central thread and call it "Home".
    I thank you all for the knowledge gained in the past year and look forward much more!

    Thanks for your suggestion, yes... the guides are a little old and are dated... I can agree with you there. We are always here working to improve our information for those to follow. Most of us that are involved with reviews, including myself find little time during the week to work of information guides liek you mentioned. Most of us are normally busy working on reviews, but we also understand that forum information and guides also draw a lot of attention.

    I do hope in the next coming months, we will be able to finally start working on updated guides to follow for ALL platforms. As of right now, I have some small information guides I follow for my motherboard reviews for both Intel, AMD and APU platforms. Also, keep an eye out... within the next few months I will also be working on a few DICE (dryICE) overclocking runs. This will be done with the 2 current popular platforms, Intel and AMD APU series.

    I only have 2 more motherboards left to work on and hopefully I will have more free time to work on guides and information tool that you speak of. Also guides for benchmarking applications will be updated and posted for informational purpose.

    As for the other information, I will have to let the other specialties chime in... We have a few are have more knowledge on GPUs, SSD and etc.

    Thanks again for your suggestions, keep checking back. We are always looking to improve and provide information where we can.

    Kenny

    Congrats on the first year! We are glad to have you as a member.

    What Solara2xb just stated is very very true. I would love to keep up on the resources but I can rarely find time to think straight. One of the best features of this community is that anyone can create a tutorial about any subject they would like. If it is something we think people will need frequently we can make it a sticky.

    If anyone would like to start working on any of the items listed below they are welcome to jump in and help. It would be greatly appreciated.

    i have always wanted to see a number value from 1.00 to 10 as an expression of the test results. Understanding multiple aspects of testing might result in a colaboration of results that can be set to an average point value

    the one thing making this hard is that the top of the market keeps on rising

    i have no idea how we would make a bar graph on a sliding scale

    but in the end what would help evaluate what to buy, and what not to buy would be that bar graphmany

    times i have seen where one of our senior members would ask "did you check out the review"
    i have a very bad case of ADD, and after reading just a half of a review i am not able to read the words in front of me

    summerization is of an ultimate importance to my species (knucklehead-o-sapien) in order for us to process data
    pleas take a moment to watch and share this in it's ENTIRETY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20RoAfflGCM

    We used to have a number system, 1-5. We recently removed it because it was becoming more and more difficult to fit products into the narrow confines of such a basic system. A more robust and future proof grading scale would be nice. I have no clue on how to set this up or what metrics to use.

    Start at the back of the review and go from there. It is hard for me to read 100% of each review soon as it is posted. So I get the jest of it first just in case I am called away to handle something else. As I have time I continue reading until I finish where it started.

    Another thing Sandy mentioned that I forgot to say, members here are more than welcome to create guides. We don't limit this to only staff of PureOC, ALL members can contribute information and we can add to this guide as we go along. That's how our other guides have always started and we just keep adding to it from other members experience.
