    OCZ Vertex 4 256 GB

    Might want to fix all those graphs that say 256MB instead of 256GB :eek:

    GIGABYTE GTX 680 SuperOverclock WindForce 5X Pictured Some More

    Yeah, they're the same kind of blowers typically found in rackmount servers.

    GIGABYTE GTX 680 SuperOverclock WindForce 5X Pictured Some More

    The way I understand it, the fans pull heat away from the card and towards the side panel where one or more fan slots would typically be in such a configuration.

    Intel 8-series "Lynx Point" Chipset Models Surface

    Still wondering what "Hotham 1.0" is... Sounds like a planet in the Star Wars extended universe.

    AMD A10-4600M Performance Revealed in Infographic

    I'm going to go ahead and assume that the numbers in this slide mean that CPU performance is 30% higher, GPU performance is 56% higher, and power consumption is 10% lower than Llano. These numbers line up with this slide that was leaked earlier this month.

    AMD A10-4600M Performance Revealed in Infographic

    Sans gaming performance, I'm more interested to see how intelligent the power management is for the entire platform given that the GPU is paired with an AMD CPU. How low is power consumption with the dGPU shut down, does switching between the two GPUs work well and does it automatically switch...

    Well, free is nice but it always comes at a lesser known cost.

    MacBook Pro 2012 Launch Imminent

    That's a little bit of an unrealistic bar to set. Intel can improve their graphics by 400% but so will everyone else. According to Anandtech's review of the 3770K, HD4000 is 55% faster than HD3000, but matches Llano's performance in the A8-3850. If rumors are a true and Trinity is 56% faster...

    MSI Z77 Motherboards and Next-Gen GUS Pictured

    I'm aware, but if they wanted to retain legacy support like that, wouldn't DVI have been a better option since DVI has pins that carry analog video and adapters for it are dirt cheap?

    This looks similar to what AMD's APUs are except with ARM CPU cores.

    Taiwan Foundries Cut Prices

    All this seems like to me is a way for AMD and NVIDIA to continue selling at current price levels and pocket the savings to improve their respective bottom lines. They both could certainly use it.

    AMD Releases First Socket FM1 Athlon Processor

    How is FM1 a dead end when the Piledriver CPUs as well as the Bulldozer-based Trinity APUs are both going to be released on socket FM2? I'm sure there will be chipset differences as there always has been with AMD but I really don't think they'd rehash the same ideals that made Socket 754 fail...

    Has anyone tried this yet on the Sapphire HD 4770? It has the non-reference arctic cooling HSF. I tried the ASUS TOP bios, but it did not take at all. I'm having BIG overclocking problems (850MHz core/860MHz RAM, still chilly at 42C and then instant crash by going any further). Maybe this can...

    It's been reported working consistantly on ATI reference cards though. So maybe its different than both the ASUS card and the ref card?

    Sapphire 4770 to ASUS 4770 TOP BIOS problems

    I read that the 4770 could be software volt modded by flashing the BIOS and using the ASUS tool to increase the voltage. I got as far as flashing the BIOS. Upon reboot Windows would hang on boot. I flashed it back to the Sapphire BIOS and everything was fine again. Has anyone tried this with...
