    European Commission Plans Criminal Case Against Microsoft

    You wanna sell in EU, you sell the way we tell you to. PERIOD Taxing US companies which contributed to the creation of this global mess?... YES, as opposed to indebting the people like US does now. How many trillions was it?

    AMD A-Series "Trinity" Desktop APUs Set for October 1 Launch

    Steamroller will be introduced for mobile first, later desktop and as standalone CPU even later. FM2 should allow for compatibility so no worries there. AM3+ after Steamroller is said to be dead, but we hope it won't. @NeoFX, maybe they will add dual controllers for Excavator like they did...

    These are the desktop line. You probably mean FX Vishera CPU's.

    AMD Shows Off A10-5800K and FX-8350 Near IDF

    Recognize rhetoric when you see it... Higher IPC parts can't really clock high, which high clocking parts like BD can make up in performance just because of that. Add to it the capabilities, it's not just a clocking chip for benchers. The intel vs AMD is outdated thinking, and past...

    AMD Shows Off A10-5800K and FX-8350 Near IDF

    And why would clock-for-clock matter?... do they handle the same load of threads per core the same way to actually make a ck4ck comparison?

    AMD Delivers New Generation Opteron and Xeon "Ivy Bridge" Processors in SM15000 MSC

    From my understanding, this is a transition and like HumanSmoke said, some clients are serviced with Intel products until support is upgraded completely.

    Corsair Neutron SSDs Now Available

    Reason not to jump for it straight away. Same thing was for SF, and look how bad it turned out to be.

    Prolimatech Magnetic Pin to Make Shuffling Fans Around a Case Snappy

    Dude, he means rubber mounts with magnetic contacts for quick removal. Not the rubber mounts.

    Prolimatech Magnetic Pin to Make Shuffling Fans Around a Case Snappy

    Are you sure about that?... just because you never saw a commercial product it doesn't mean no one did it. In fact I did try several types of quick mounting mechanisms. The best one I could come up with, including mounting on aluminum, plastic and relief was the double sided tape mount. All...

    Introducing the ICY DOCK MB080USEB-1SB Blizzard

    The only reason external enclosures exist is portability. Unless you're a woman, hauling one of those huge luggage-type hand bags with you, this is pointless. Might as well buy a 2 or 4 bay enclosure that makes full use of the space and offers that fan, untilted.

    AMD Readies Trio of Athlon II X4 Processors in FM2 Package

    If they has the dough... but overall you might think that these people won't upgrade yearly like we do, they buy and use for 4, 5 years. It's that time-frame which makes some parts obsolete, or slow performing. Substantially?... well, Athlon FM1 + a better discreet graphics is a little bit...
