    AMD "Tahiti LE" to be Launched on November 27

    It's just a way for AMD to use up the chips that didn't make the grade as full performance 79xx's, renamed defective cast off's.

    Eizo Intros FlexScan S1703-T 17-inch Professional Monitor

    Hey, 5:4 monitors are perfect for emulation of old games..MAME in particular, no lousy aspect ratio stretching or huge black borders either side of the play area, which is why I keep mine. Also, 17inch 5:4 screens rotated into portrait mode are the perfect size for reading magazines and...

    AMD FX-8350 - "Piledriver" for AMD Socket AM3+

    9 out 10...you've got to be fucking joking,right? "Low" but adequate single-threaded performance will not appeal to some. You said it...in this regard the chip is still a dog...utterly useless for emulation. From a reviewer who knows what their talking about... "If you are looking to...

    AMD A10-5800K Cracks 7.446 GHz

    Piledriver cores...which are going in the new refreshed line of FX CPU's, I was just making the point that even these new,supposedly improved cores are still going to suck in the non budget AMD range CPU's.

    AMD A10-5800K Cracks 7.446 GHz

    Piledriver at 7.4ghz...hmmm, about as fast in IPC terms as an inexpensively cooled Ivybridge at 4.8Ghz. ..yes, that's how crap they are.

    AMD Trinity FM2 APU Preview

    Well given just how much the FM1 CPU's gaming scores increased when using faster memory, I'd expect a similar improvement with these FM2 ones, scores of 2000+ should be possible in 3dMark11 But...as usual for CPU limited tasks, these CPU's,whilst an improvement over Bulldozer, still suck.

    BitFenix Ghost

    nice case, but if I were in the market for a case right now, I really couldn't look further than the new Fractal R4...such an elegant,understated design that wont date one bit.

    AMD FX "Vishera" Processor Pricing Revealed

    Lol..they're still going to market these as 8,6,4 core CPU's... 4,3,2 is more accurate.

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

    Philips Announces a Fleet of New Monitors at IFA 2012

    "UltraWide 21:9 display" They launched this format as a high end TV last year, which has just been discontinued due to low sales. I wonder why they think it will fare any better as a desktop monitor..:confused:
