    'Locked' AMD Zambezi Silicon Being Branded As New Phenom II Line

    Well, Phenom (8xx) also was just a higher clocked Athlon, which was outperformed by Phenom (same architecture tho, just L3 cacheless). But this, indeed, doesn't make sense. AMD always finds a way how to troll!

    AMD Radeon HD 7970 3072 MB

    Well, those were his "cherry-picked" benchmarks (not overall) where 580 was actually ahead of HD7970. As you can see, he has 570 in his rig so there might be some nVidia fanboism coming out. Card is great, price is not. New architecture seems to take away those benchmarks where nvidia cards...

    Ok, so that's the price of A8-3850 now and it's not just an incremental update but the unlocked package. :toast: Let's see how far it clocks and i might actually get one of these too, or a cheaper A8-3850. :laugh:

    A8-3870K looks nice, I just hope the price is low enough.

    AMD's Own HD 7970 Performance Expectations?

    These graphs... Every time I see a bar twice as long as comparison and something like "up to 50%" I know it's AMD. :D

    What card from ATi/AMD is equal to my GTS 250 card?

    Considering the fact that you're looking for a cheap card and not even an upgrade then 2nd hand 4850 should be dirt cheap. Cards worth upgrading to starts with 6850.

    Does anyone have a spare Dota II beta key?

    I'm playing League of Legends at the moment but wanted to try out Dota II (applied for beta but haven't received an invite so far). I really do like action games that are more RTS genre but still remain solid amount of action and Dota II just seems to that, also well balanced and more skill...

    Improved Phenom II vs Bulldozer

    If you look at Athlons on FM1, yes, they should be able to beat Bulldozer.

    Ye, you could push 2x the frequency on some of the phones and run it like a boss. Overclocking is a viable option but not on the phones because battery life is an issue...

    AMD FM1 and FM2 Packages Pictured Side-by-Side, Incompatible

    Well, there are benchmarks floating around with 4ghz+ A6/Athlon X4 631 showing some nice performance numbers (for Stars architecture).

    AMD FM1 and FM2 Packages Pictured Side-by-Side, Incompatible

    ****,I was going to get an Athlon X4 631 and OC the shit out of it and then drop similar kind of FM2 CPU/APU on the same board. On second thought, I might still get that Athlon because I have no idea how much better is Bulldozer going to perform on FM2/win8.

    Grand Theft Auto V Announcment Trailer Coming Nov. 2nd!!

    RAGE powered San Andreas with more focus on the storyline that's what it should be if they want to maximize sales (SA still #10 on Xfire thanks to multiplayer modifications like SA-MP and MTA).

    PowerColor HD 6870 X2 2048 MB

    You should wait for someone who's running 6 series CF atm, AFAIK scaling is great and microstuttering has been improved from the 5 series, well, it's not that much of a problem, you will be more concerned about getting the right drivers. Yes, the best performing drivers probably won't be the...

    AMD CF scaling is great for HD6xxx but the issues you mentioned do exist. You should check out the review here on TPU: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/Powercolor/HD_6870_X2/

    PowerColor HD 6870 X2 2048 MB

    Your PSU has 2 +12V 25A with max combined load from them to be ~500W, you should be fine. Bottleneck here is Phenom II - it will keep your frames lower in quite a lot of games (bad memory management, CPU could handle higher FPS). You shouldn't worry tho, it will still be more than playable. :P...

    AMD Releases First Socket FM1 Athlon Processor

    This CPU overclocked should rape FX-4100 (~955BE) and if I'm not mistaken FM1 socket is here to stay for another generation, isn't it?
