Kolink Citadel Glass SE: Improved aesthetics, attractive lighting
A total of three 120 mm PWM fans are already pre-installed in the Kolink Citadel Glass SE. Their digitally addressable RGB lighting can be controlled via the RGB controller and fan hub with remote control that are also included. Alternatively, the lighting can also be connected to a mainboard with a corresponding 3-pin 5VDG header and controlled using the mainboard manufacturer's software. In addition to attractive lighting, the fans also offer good performance and can be connected to a total of six 4-pin PWM headers on the hub.
In addition to the pre-installed fans, two 120 or 140 mm fans can be installed on the cover. There is a magnetic dust filter over the honeycomb cover. If you prefer water cooling, you can install a 280 mm radiator on the front and a 240 mm radiator on the lid. Thanks to the tempered glass side door, the hardware installed inside is not only clearly visible, but also easily accessible. Magnets keep the side door closed.

The Core i7-11700K offers eight physical cores and can process up to 16 threads simultaneously thanks to SMT (Hyper-Threading) support. The base clock is 3.6 GHz, the highest turbo clock frequency in single-threading load increases to 5 GHz. As a new highlight, the Core i7-11700K also has 20 PCIe 4.0 lanes, 16 of which are primarily intended for the graphics card and the remaining four lanes for a PCIe 4.0 x4 SSD.
With eight cores, but without velocity and adaptive boost, the Octacore still clocks with 4.6 GHz all-core and 5.0 GHz single-core. This is 100 MHz lower than the previous Core i7-10700K. Compared to the i9-11900K, there are not only cuts in the clock frequency, according to the Intel specification in Gear 1 mode, the memory controller can only clock with a maximum of DDR4-2933 MHz, with Gear 2 up to DDR4-3200 is possible. In terms of single-threaded and IPC performance, the Cypress Cove architecture is a significant step forward - especially compared to what we have seen over and over again in recent years with the numerous Skylake reissues. We're actually talking about + 20% IPC performance, which Intel brings back to the level of AMD's Zen 3 architecture in this regard. Intel can exploit this primarily in applications in which only a few cores are used. Above all, however, Intel is clearly targeting gamers as buyers of its new processors. If we look at the corresponding benchmarks, we can actually say that Intel has once again put the player's crown on the table. But the truth is also that you don't clearly beat AMD with the Ryzen 5000 processors, but the gaps here are so small that you can speak of a tie. Gamers who choose an output resolution of 1080p and higher and a corresponding level of detail are limited by the GPU performance of both AMD and Intel.

After NVIDIA launched the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti on the market in week 22, the next model is now following: the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti. Here, too, NVIDIA is increasing the expansion of the ampere GPU, probably with the Radeon RX 6800 more clearly in the barriers to refer or to get a little closer to the Radeon RX 6800 XT.
There is the GA104 graphics chip, which celebrated its debut in October 2020 with the RTX 3070, but has only been able to show what it is really made of in a professional environment. This is over now, the fillet pieces of GPU production are used on the Geforce RTX 3070 Ti: Chips with the ending "400" and thus the full configuration. The new Ampere graphics card has 48 shader multiprocessors, which include 6,144 FP32 ALUs, 328 texture units, 96 raster output stages and 48 ray tracing cores.
This alone does not make up much ground, which is why Nvidia makes use of a previously unused feature of the GA104: GDDR6X support. So far, the 256-bit wide memory interface of all GA104 models was equipped with 14 GT / s fast GDDR6-without-X memory, which led to a transfer rate of 448 GByte / s. The Geforce RTX 3070 Ti, on the other hand - like the RTX 3080 (Ti) - can use GDDR6X with 19 gigatransfers per second to copy data at 608 GByte / s. That is almost 36 percent faster and therefore a significant plus. The other performance parameters around a 4 MiByte level 2 cache depend directly on the memory controller and are therefore identical to the RTX 3070.
The RTX 3070 Ti achieves a good ten to fifty percent higher performance than the already comfortably fast RTX 3070 and can therefore basically satisfy almost all requirements, provided that WQHD gaming is the desired goal at most. Although the new ampere card is just below the Radeon RX 6800 when it comes to rasterizing, it can be around 21 percent behind when it comes to ray tracing. The warm feeling in the stomach area is also psychologically valuable, with the RTX 3070 Ti receiving the best, fully active GA104 chips and fast-paced GDDR6X memory. Modern game code is becoming more and more floating point, so time is an ally. Added to this are the improvements in the ray tracing and tensor units which, with appropriate programming, bring performance increases of up to 100 percent compared to Turing.

Microsoft Windows 10 Professional 64Bit, pre-installed with all necessary device drivers. Switch on and get started!
The launch of Windows 10 and the associated developments are among the most important market launches in Microsoft's corporate history. Windows 10 not only brings a new version of the operating system onto the market, Windows 10 enables a new platform generation:
"We want to ensure that we offer developers the largest and most vibrant user base for their applications," said Satya Nadella in his opening keynote at BUILD 2015 in San Francisco. Windows 10 is now available in 190 countries and 111 languages.
The browser is really new in Windows 10: Edge replaces Internet Explorer. The new browser doesn't just have the cooler name. It is also much faster. In almost all browser benchmarks, Edge depends on IE 11 from Windows 8.1. It can almost double its pace in Mozilla's Kraken benchmark. It looks the same in Google's Octane 2.0 test. Its pace remains roughly the same in the Sunspider test and the Peacekeeper benchmark. Conclusion: When it comes to the browser speed, Windows 10 with Edge catches up a lot. In Kraken and Octane, Edge overtakes the competition, in the Sunspider he stays ahead. The old conditions are only preserved in the Peacekeeper test.
Microsoft already shortened the start times of Windows extremely with Windows 8. If the computer is switched off using "Shut down", it does not switch itself off, but only goes into hibernation - from which it can wake up more quickly. Even with a real Katlstart or restart, Windows 8.1 is slightly slower: However, over time, Windows remembers the files that it needs for the start: The start time is shortened with repeated starts. After ten starts, the two operating systems were almost on par with 20 seconds (Windows 10) and 22 seconds (Windows 8.1).
Windows is actually getting faster and faster the older it gets: For most components, manufacturers are releasing ever more up-to-date drivers that accelerate the hardware. Windows feels like it is getting slower and slower: This is mostly due to the fact that the autostart folder is filling up with more and more entries, more and more tools are running in the background and more and more programs that are no longer used are littering the memory. The performance tests show hardly any difference between Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Sometimes one system is faster, sometimes the other. But all the results are so closely related - with less than three percent difference - that no difference is noticeable in practice. This also applies to tests such as Cinebench R15, which primarily check the processor performance. Even if we repeated the tests several times, nothing changed: When saving and buffering frequently used files, nothing seems to have changed between Windows 8.1 and 10. Conclusion: When it comes to hardware performance, Windows 10 is as fast as Windows 8.1 - or vice versa. So that Windows 10 stays fast, the same rules apply as always with Windows: Install the latest drivers and keep the system clean.
Windows 10 comes with the new Direct X12 3D interface. DX12 is designed to allow game programmers to use the capabilities of the GPU more efficiently. Computers with less powerful graphics cards can also benefit from this and display graphically complex games more smoothly. At the moment, the potential of DX12 can only be demonstrated using synthetic benchmarks such as the API overhead test. Conclusion: Windows 10 has the potential to accelerate games on weaker systems thanks to the DX12. But the concrete results will only show games that use DX12. The first should appear at the end of the year.
Windows 10 lays a good foundation: the hardware manufacturers have to use this to tease out a performance plus with improved drivers. Or in the case of Direct X12 game programmers who use the capabilities of the new interface in games.
