The new CPU-Z 1.96 release provides preliminary support for Intel's next-gen Alder Lake CPUs and their accompanied Z600 series platform, preliminary support for now-being-tested DDR5 memory, AMD's new Ryzen 7 5700G, 5600G and 5300G APUs that were announced just days ago, and the already-released AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT, 6800 (& XT), 6700 XT GPUs.

DDR5 memory between 4800 all the way through to the mind-boggling 8400 MT/s is now supported by CPU-Z, with mere mortals like us not having our hands-on with DDR5 memory. Intel's new Alder Lake platform will be the first to support DDR5 to mainstream users, gamers, and everyone in between -- while AMD will debut DDR5 support with their new Zen 4-based Ryzen 6000 series CPUs in 2022.

How to Make a Video File Smaller - Compress and More

We'd prefer HDR 4K and 8K videos for the extremely realistic visual experience. But without exception, many of us are deterred away by the large file size. This is not only a big challenge for our computers and smartphones, but also for online sharing and even for post video editing.

How to Make a Video File Smaller - Compress and More 1 | TweakTown.com

For example, a 5-min 4K 30fps video shot by iPhone takes up 1.75GB (850MB). Obviously, it is impossible to share this video via Facebook Massager or emails like Outlook, Gmail, and Yahoo Mail as it's much larger than the maximum supported size, 25MB. What's worse, with many large videos on your iPhone or laptop, you cannot download one more app and face annoying issues like quit, crash, and freeze.

And that's why we come to solve your problems with VideoProc, an all-in-one desktop program. But in the first place, I think you should know what factors are affecting the video file size.

3DMark updated, new UI and new 'Estimated Game Performance' feature

Anthony Garreffa | Thu, Nov 26 2020 9:43 PM CST

UL Benchmarks have just pushed out a new update for 3DMark that tweaks the UI and gives benchmarkers and tweakers a new Results tab -- but there's something more interesting here.

3DMark updated, new UI and new 'Estimated Game Performance' feature 01 | TweakTown.com

That would be the new Estimated Game Performance feature, which extrapolates your 3DMark score that you've just run -- with real-world game performance in just 5 games for now. The extrapolated 3DMark score provides an estimated game performance number for Apex Legends, Battlefield V, Fortnite, Grand Theft Auto V, and Red Dead Redemption 2.

3DMark will use its score, then you select the game you want estimated performance from -- and it will spit out an estimated FPS in that desired game. It isn't perfect, but it's close -- it'll be interesting to see where this goes in the future from UL.

How to Convert DVD to ISO File? WinX DVD Copy Pro Deserves a Try

Sponsored Content | Tue, Oct 27 2020 6:09 PM CDT

What is the best format to rip DVD? There is no single answer to this question. If you want to convert DVD for playback on a mobile device, MP4 is a good choice. If you want to create a 1:1 copy to save on computer, I'll suggest converting DVD to ISO image.

Have no idea about ISO image? Let's see the explanation on Wikipedia - "An ISO image is a disk image of an optical disc. In other words, it is an archive file that contains everything that would be written to an optical disc, sector by sector, including the optical disc file system." An ISO file contains all the data on your DVD and its file size and quality are as same as the data on your disc. This way, you can recreate the ISO file to DVD in the future if necessary and mount the ISO file as a virtual drive. Well, how to convert DVD to ISO file?

DVD to ISO Converter is a Must

We know a lot free DVD converters, like HandBrake, DVDShrink, and MakeMKV. However, those programs either can't read the source DVD or they don't support ISO output. If you're looking for the best software to rip DVD into ISO file, I suggest you try WinX DVD Copy Pro. I have a few good supporting reasons for my recommendation.
