Is PC industry dying? Nope, I just upgraded my extreme gaming and video editing computer system. Previous PC system serves me well for the past 6 years. And it is still able to do basic office, blogging and surfing tasks. But slow for 3D gaming and of course video, photo editing as well. There are still tasks that cannot be done by tablet and smartphone. So here you are – my latest extreme gaming and video editing computer system. You will need a powerful multi core CPU for fast video editing. Enough memory so that it won’t slow down when hard drive page file kicks in. SSD to speed up the whole process as normal HDD is usually the bottleneck that slows the whole system down. Therefore, slow HDD but big capacity is used for data storage and backup only. And SSD is for Windows OS and storage for ongoing tasks. Fast GPU is required for extreme gaming of course. And finally you will need good cooling system to let you increase performance further by overclock them…
Want to enjoy ultra high graphic details on Dead Trigger 2? Get a Tegra 4 device then. Well, that is not the only way. By following the old method for Dead Trigger for Tegra 3, you can enable the extended effects on non Tegra 4 devices too. However, you need to have root access. And of course, your Android device’s GPU need to be as powerful as Tegra 4 too. My Galaxy S4 GPU is a little slow on this setting. Huhu… It’s time to root my Galaxy Note 3.
Want to increase Google Nexus 7 battery life? Undervolt Nexus 7 NVIDIA Tegra 3 Super 4-PLUS-1 Quad Core CPU is one of the ways to do so. Besides Nexus 7 7″ HD WXGA IPS screen, Tegra 3 Quad Core CPU is another big battery eater. Undervolting helps to reduce Nexus 7 battery usage, and will make Nexus 7 cooler (generate less heat) too. Unlike underclock which may not be so efficient in performance / walt ratio. Undervolt surely will improve battery life because it maintains the overall performance speed while lower the battery usage. As usual, you need to install custom kernel for Nexus 7 in order to undervolt. Stock Nexus 7 kernel does not support it.
Overclocking is the easiest way to improve overall performance on Google Nexus 7. NVIDIA Tegra 3 Super 4-PLUS-1 Quad Core CPU is clocked at 1.3 GHz by default on Nexus 7. However, you still can push its limit and improve overall Nexus 7 performance by overclock up to 1.7 GHz. Official Nexus 7 kernel does not support overclock feature. So you need to install custom kernel for Nexus 7 in order to overclock.
Note – overclock will reduce NVIDIA Tegra 3 CPU, GeForce GPU and other hardware components lifespan because it will overheat easily. Do it at your own risk.
Don’t have NVIDIA Tegra 3 devices such as HTC One X, Google Nexus 7 and ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity. And still want enjoy Dead Trigger Tegra 3 extended effects like spectacular ragdoll effects and water simulation. Well, you are in luck now. You can enable Dead Trigger Tegra 3 extended effects on non-Tegra 3 device like Samsung Galaxy S III with just some tweaks. Note – root access is required.
