    AMD Slips Out Radeon HD 7670 to OEMs

    The X600 series is supposed to be AMD's flagship card for low power users. No 6 pin connector/great performance. This is VERY disappointing, I wanted to pick up a high end 28nm video card that I was going to use on a lighter system I will be working on, now I might as well get a 6670.

    Review Consensus: AMD FX Processor 8150 Underwhelming

    Did the release of Bulldozer lower the prices of the Phenom II series? I was going to get one but hell, might as well just use that money to get an upgrade for my existing AM3 setup to a Phenom II X6 1100T or X4 980 from my X3 720?

    Lights are on but is the motherboard posting?

    I guess some info on the PSU would be useful, it is a crappy PSU, an Orion P4-485 485W Power Supply but all he's got in there now is a Radeon HD 2400 PRO (which requires no 4 pin) and an athlon X2 260, not a very high powered system at all

    Lights are on but is the motherboard posting?

    I think it may be a PSU problem to, I dug up a PS/2 Keyboard and its still not detecting what else could the problem be? :banghead:

    Alright good news, the new is CPU working, but now the USB ports dont seem to work, is it from resetting the CMOS?

    Lights are on but is the motherboard posting?

    Also I should have mentioned this in my last post, the CPU I was trying to use, turns out it wasn't posting (no beep code) so I tested another one (an Athlon X4 620) and it seems to have worked (posted, didn't try plugging in a monitor... which weas kinda dumb in hindsight), unfortunately I...

    Lights are on but is the motherboard posting?

    Sorry been completely swamped past few days. It could be an onbaord issue, might drag a monitor over there to see if it works since the onboard is just VGA and the current monitor can only take DVI, also all my DVI/VGA converters are male DVI/female VGA which is kinda useless in this situation...

    Lights are on but is the motherboard posting?

    The motherboard is an Asrock N68C-S UCC. Unfortunately I don't have access to another PSU right now, everything seems to be working fine with the the PSU though. The Video card is a Radeon HD 2400 PRO DEFINITELY doesn't need any external power. There is an Nvidia IGP but I don't have any VGA...

    Lights are on but is the motherboard posting?

    I'm helping a friend build a crappy computer, just some spare parts, an Athlon X2 7850 and Radeon HD 2400 PRO. The things lights up, the fans spins but I'm not sure its posting and it won't detect the monitor, I've tried everything, messing around with the RAM, unplugging etc. nothing seems to...

    Radeon HD 6670 and Deus Ex?

    My Roommate has a... pretty medicore setup, an athlon 64 X2 7850, 2GB DDR2-800 and a Radeon HD 6670 1GB GDDR5 but he REALLY wants to play Deus Ex: Human Revolution, can he run it? The Minimum requirements are for a 4850 which, in raw power is better than the 6670 but he is using a 1920x1080 23"...

    AMD Intros New C-Series and Two New E-Series APUs

    My bad missed it :p But the biggest improvement is memory going from DDR3-1066 to DDR3-1333 which helps noticebly with the GPU in the APU

    AMD Fusion A8-3850 GPU Performance Analysis

    The 11.6 hotfixes are designed specifically for the Fusion based GPUs, a lot of the 'problems' with the crossfire setup with the A-3850 and the 6670 seem to stem from drivers rather than raw power. Great review! Thanks!

    AMD Introduces Vision A6-3650 and A8-3850 Desktop APUs

    I hope wizard, if he has the time can do a review of the A6 Radeon HD 6530D and 6550D with hybrid crossfire eventually. It would be interesting to see the results of tests of combining a decent APU and a discrete card compared to the wimpy results of the old hybrid crossfire setups

    PowerColor HD 6670 1024 MB

    A very nice, 6-pin-less card! It's a shame that the GDDR5 variant is only a few dollars away from the 5750/6750 which is far more powerful for about $10

    Thermaltake Unveils New Meka G Unit Mechanical Keyboard Variant

    I have a DAS Model S Professional that are Cherry Blues and I love the click clack sound. As somebody who had a Steelseries 6GV2 before (gave it to my brother for his birthday) I can honestly say that for gaming, personally (it can very well be different for other people of course) I found...

    ZOTAC Announces the New FUSION-ITX WiFi A-series Motherboards

    Has Techpowerup ever reviewed the Zacate yet? I'd like to see something like that eventually. I think this would make a good HTPC, the IGP is great on the Fusion mobos but I'm still unsure about the CPU though, from what I've read it actually keeps the Radeon IGP from performing better.

    They couldn't even give these a mild over clock even?

    Sapphire Announces its Radeon HD 6700 Series Graphics Card Lineup

    I wonder how many people will rush out to upgrade their 5770s to the 6770s without knowing they're the exact same card.

    The performance numbers here remind me of what my brother's 9800 GT gets

    AMD Radeon HD 6450 1024 MB

    It may not look terribly impressive but a 49% improvement over the 5450 is pretty good.
