    LG Unveils the 24UD58-B 24-inch Ultra HD Monitor

    It's funny to live in a world where 1440p and 4k are too much pixels for 24 inch monitors, but 1080p just isnt enough for smartphone screens anymore.

    AMD "Zen" Offers a 40% IPC Increase Over "Excavator"

    I won't lie, I was pretty hyped when I heard that Jim Keller and some of the vanguard were back....but talented engineers can easily be thwarted by idiotic management and marketing teams. I just can't bring myself to get to excited for an AMD cpu anymore, maybe after I see what launch claims...

    AMD "Zen" Offers a 40% IPC Increase Over "Excavator"

    Nope. I have none. believe it when I see it. I just hope they don't get class actioned again.

    NVIDIA Disables GeForce GTX 900M Mobile GPU Overclocking with Driver Update

    Yeah Amd rebranded the 7870M multiple times and sold that for about 2-3 years.... standard fare for this industry really... but i dn't see the need for OC'ing laptop gpus. heat is too big a factor.

    We're Putting Finishing Touches to the Radeon 300 Series: AMD

    That was a pretty standard sarcastic reply by message board standards ( mine at least) and yet you instantly pull out the fanboy card, hoping what ? that the thread will descend into a VS debate where you are at home ? Lets all just have some speculation fun and wait for release benchmarks.

    Specs Don't Matter: TechPowerUp Poll on GTX 970 Controversy

    TPU really seems to be going the extra mile to push the 'no big deal' wagon. NP really, this is the real world, and websites aren't paid for with unbiased reporting and personal integrity. I wonder if Samsung or Apple advertised a 4GB next gen and really delivered 3.5, if the Nvidia NBD chorus...

    Perfectly Functional GTX 970 Cards Being Returned Over Memory Controversy

    I hope this is sarcasm or satire or some shit...... because I still have faith in mankind. Don't take that away from me.........Not for a GPU. not for a GPU.......

    Perfectly Functional GTX 970 Cards Being Returned Over Memory Controversy

    Yah know, if some car manufacturer had advertised a new model as getting X mpg and it turned out to be 1/8 short of advertising, or and engine that is 1/8 smaller than advertised there'd probably be a class action lawsuit. It's funny to see how stupid the gamer/fanboy mentality is, and how...

    EVGA TORQ X10 Gaming Mouse Available for Pre-Order

    I did a lot of reading before I bought a deathadder, bunch of reviewers said that they were palm, claw or hybrid claw an the adder was the most comfortable mouse they had ever used. I'm a claw-hybrid. Most uncomfortable mouse I've had the displeasure to use. Made the centre of my palm cramp...

    AMD Demonstrates Full Support for DirectX 12 at Game Developer Conference

    No. DX12 = Mantle + DX11. Do people seriously think that after MS announced that there were no major plans post DX11.xx , within the last handful of months, they made a 'close to the metal' development API, coincidentally after AMD released Mantle ? Really?..........seriously?

    AMD Reports 2013 Fourth Quarter and Annual Results

    Kaveri is a good chip, but I don't really see it making such an impact as to be a revenue generator. Unless mantle not only provides SIGNIFICANT performance gains, but also gains rapid and widespread developer focus this year. Without that, I don't see a compelling argument for major revenue...

    Intel Core "Haswell" Refresh Lineup Slated for Q2

    Why the Litecoin Craze Hurts More Than Helps Brand AMD Radeon

    And now you get to run all games on stratosphere settings. That's a litecoin win bro.

    Why the Litecoin Craze Hurts More Than Helps Brand AMD Radeon

    So frame latency then. Sub 1% of customer usage base. I was actually going to mention it in my post, something along the lines of "save for the frame pacing issue" but then I thought 'Is anyone really going to grasp at a niche multi-card issue and umbrella all issues under that last bastion of...

    Why the Litecoin Craze Hurts More Than Helps Brand AMD Radeon

    Actually, in the [H] review of 4k gaming with 290s vs 780 Tis (As I'm sure most of us have read), the 290 experience was smooth and near plug and play whereas the Ti required significant effort to get going. So I really was not going to even challenge the 2005 'Driver' argument. It's 2014 and...

    Why the Litecoin Craze Hurts More Than Helps Brand AMD Radeon

    This is an excellent point that I feel makes the original article look like even more nonsense. If anything, the current litecoin craze and extreme shortage is bringing marketing to the AMD brand that their own marketing department has shown incompetency in generating. People that have no clue...

    Why the Litecoin Craze Hurts More Than Helps Brand AMD Radeon

    I think if we are talking big picture, the existing shortage does not matter. Smart gamers will exercise choice, no AMD cards available, I buy Nvidia, next gen, I evaluate again. But consider, AMD wholly runs console gaming, console gaming in no small part drives PC AAA experiences. Every game...

    Why the Litecoin Craze Hurts More Than Helps Brand AMD Radeon

    I don't think this editorial makes any sense. AMD should design and release stripped down chips to deal with a short term craze so as not to undermine its already strong presence in gaming, an industry that has more longevity, and that will certainly outlast this crypto-coin craze. With...

    Radeon HD 7970 Price Cuts Not Any Time Soon: Report

    Gentlemen and ladies, the reason that AMD prices will not fall anytime soon is very simple. True, what what probably meant to be Nvidia's mid range card is a little faster than AMD's high end (in gaming) and true, the 680 is a great purchase, but where are they ? Don't you all think that AMD...

    Sharkoon Intros Vaya ATX Mid-Tower Value Case

    lol, exactly the case I was looking at for myself! great value at such a low price point, I was thinking of doing an experimental Llano system in it, A8 + 6670 and see how far I could overclock them stably...I'll see how funds go. Great suggestion though, really like that case.
