    Lenovo Debuts First Netbook with NVIDIA ION Graphics Processor

    it lacks the classic thinkpad looks and I do believe that AMD has a better proposition for the ~12 inch market. uhhh I think that is called the Yukon... which is counter intuitive as it makes me think of GM's largest SUV lol...

    Hey guys! im trying to set up a crossfire, any tips or instructions?

    Hey guys! im trying to set up a crossfire, any tips or instructions?

    it will def. be close on both the psu and mobo end, but doable I would presume. the real question I think is, if the performance increase is worth the 65$

    HD 4870X2 Beats GeForce GTX 280

    uhm, they might be fake but the fact that the green bars are always at 1 doesn't make it fake. it just meant that the 4870 is being compared relatively to the 9800gtx, and in the second graph with the 8800gt. At no point is the 8800gt being compared to the 9800gtx. edit: lol farlex beat me to it

    AMD Announces Storage Bridge Bay Reference Design and new AMD Athlon X2 Processors

    As strange as it may be, the lower wattage Athlon X2's never actually oc'd any better than the regular counter parts. I would know I have a X2 4600EE. And I think that if AMD had really found a way to increase clock speeds, then they'd be released by now. Still I hope I'm wrong
