Some keen eyes over at Videocardz recently discovered that benchmarks for the highly anticipated AMD Radeon RX Vega GPU have inadvertently been leaked in the CompuBench benchmark database. The leaked benchmarks also reveal some GPU specifications for the first time including potential clock speeds and compute unit count.
Starting off, we can see that the leaked CompuBench benchmarks shows a device ID 687F:C1. This is the same device ID of the AMD Radeon RX Vega GPU that we saw running the Doom 4K demo at CES.
Using the information on the info page, we get several important pieces of information about the GPU.CL_DEVICE_MAX_COMPUTE_UNITS = 64 – [...]
Welcome to Custom PC Review’s Best Video Editing Computer Builds! Here’s where you’ll find PC hardware recommendations for putting together a video editing build that will help you render faster, create special effects, improve preview speed/quality, and more!
Below is a list of what we think are the best purpose built video editing computer builds by budget category. These video editing builds are based on the components we’ve recommended for our best workstation computer builds, but we’ve modified them in key areas to optimize the builds specifically for video editing.
As always, each piece of hardware is debated and picked by our [...]

Pre-built workstation computers designed for photo editing, video editing and 3D modeling can fetch well over $2000 and you still won’t get the performance and upgrade-ability that comes with a custom computer build. With our August 2012 workstation computer build, we’ll be focusing on building the best photo editing, video editing, and 3D modeling computer build for under that magic $1,000 price point.
Ready to see what we came up with? Let’s go!Workstation Computer Build Component Summary CPU Intel Core i7 3770k $340 Motherboard Gigabyte Z77X-D3H $142 Memory 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz [...]
Gainward, a global graphics card manufacturer, recently unveiled their latest creation – the Phantom GTX 680 4GB. As the name suggests, the Phantom GTX680 4GB will feature 4GB of onboard memory, making Gainward one of the first manufacturers to release a GTX 680 with this much onboard memory. As expected then, the card will be able to simultaneously support up to four monitors.
Also attached to this card in addition to the massive amount of memory is the massive Phantom II cooling solution. The Phantom II cooler features two 80mm silent PWM “GR8” fans, five 6mm “Grand-Prix” heatpipes, and sports a more advanced design in comparison to the [...]
