The Tizona is a basic and very inexpensive mechanical keyboard that does have some features but not those most have come to expect from gaming keyboards. Ive been using the Tizona for about two weeks now and its a decent keyboard overall so read on to learn more "

arpe Verde Pro GPU, the XFX R7 250E Core Edition.
     Tue, Sep 30 2014 | 8:30P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Built around the 28nm Cape Verde PRO GPU, the XFX R7 250E Core Edition comes with 512 Unified Shaders, 32 TMUs and 16 ROPs. In terms of memory, we got 1GB of GDDR5 clocked at 1125MHz on a 128-bit bus for a total bandwidth of 72GB/s."

XFX R7 250E
     Tue, Sep 30 2014 | 8:30P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When you look purely at the gaming performance numbers, it's hard to really think of this card as a gaming performance card with the eye candy turned up. If you are buying this card to play the latest FPS games maxed out at 60 FPS, you will be disappointed. However, when you go to play in the wheel house it fits in, you can get performance up and over the commonly recognized 30 FPS threshold for playable performance at 1920x1080, or even higher at 1680x1050. When you get down to its DNA, this card has its roots in the 2012 release of AMD's Cape Verde Pro GCN architecture and is comparable to the HD 7750 seen at that time. Where you can really beef up performance is by connecting the XFX R7 250E into an AMD APU system and running a hybrid CrossFire configuration, which would drive performance up when needed and spools down the power consumption when you do not need the 3D GPU horsepower. In that respect, the XFX R7 250E has a lot to offer for a minimal financial impact.”

News: AMDs FX-8370E processor reviewed
     Tue, Sep 30 2014 | 4:16P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD has just shaken up its FX processor series with price cuts and a trio of new models. The additions are based on the same Vishera silicon as before, but the magic of binning has yielded a faster 125W top-of-the-line part as well as two eight-core offerings with 95W thermal envelopes. We compared one of those 95W offerings, the $200 FX-8370E, against Intel`s finest."

The patented switch design is named after its manufacturer and is called the Topre switch. Keyboard enthusiasts rave that these switches provide the ultimate typing experience."
