CES 2013: AMD unveils new GPUs, APUs
     Tue, Jan 08 2013 | 12:15P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"AMD has launched the Radeon HD 8000M series -- the first mobile notebook GPUs to be offered with AMD Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture, which delivers compute power and performance while stretching battery life through AMD Enduro Technology. Designs are currently shipping with Asustek Computer and Samsung.

Also announced is the AMD Radeon HD 8000 series desktop graphics, available only through OEMs. The AMD Radeon HD 8000 series features GCN Architecture with support for DirectX 11.1 for acceleration of Windows 8 platforms, AMD App Acceleration to enhance GPU performance, and features intelligent power management technology such as AMD PowerTune with boost. The HD 8000 will be available in desktop systems from major OEMs, starting late January 2013, AMD said.

Meanwhile, the company also provided an early look at its new 2013 accelerated processing units (APUs). AMD at CES 2013 demonstrated working silicon of its system on chip (SoC) APUs, codenamed Temash and Kabini, which will be quad-core x86 SoCs. Both APUs are scheduled to ship in the first half of 2013. Demonstrations included a range of applications and games on a Kabini-based ultrathin notebook and a Temash-based performance tablet and hybrid notebook.

AMD also introduced the new APU codenamed Richland which is currently shipping to OEMs and delivers visual performance increases ranging from more than 20% to up to 40% over the previous generation of AMD A-series APUs, the vendor said. The follow-on to Richland will be the 28nm APU codenamed Kaveri with revolutionary heterogeneous system architecture (HSA) features which is expected to begin shipping to customers in the second half of 2013."

Testing Memory Speeds on AMDs A10-5800K Trinity APU
     Tue, Jan 08 2013 | 11:48A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In game benchmarks we saw a ~38% performance gain by running a 2133MHz memory kit versus a 1333Mhz memory kit. This is a major performance gain and obviously shows that the AMD Radeon HD 7660D integrated graphics was being bottlenecked by the systems memory. If you ever plan on playing games with an APU powered system then you`ll want to go with the memory kit with the highest possible clock speed that you can afford..."

3-in-1 Mini DisplayPort to HDMI / DisplayPort / DVI Adapter Review @ TestFreaks
     Tue, Jan 08 2013 | 11:24A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the past year or so weve seen many laptops and video cards that are coming equipped with mini DisplayPort connections but those laptops and video cards dont come with adapters so you can actually make use of those ports. Today Ive got a short review for you of a product that many of you might find very useful, its a 3-in-1 adapter that goes from mini DisplayPort output to DVI, HDMI or stand DisplayPort video inputs. The product is just a small white box really, not much special or exciting about it but it is inexpensive and it does the job it needs to do. "

Akasa Venom Toxic Black Full Tower PC Case Review
     Tue, Jan 08 2013 | 11:24A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
CES (Consumer Electronics Show) is once again live and although our current workload made it impossible for us to attend this year (distance is also a huge factor) we truly hope that any of you who are able to attend (especially the ones who live near Las Vegas) will do so in order to show your support for the industry and all the people working in it. Of course you can expect most manufacturers to introduce many new and innovative products during the show, some in final and others in beta form (you might want to check Occulus Rift), but regardless of the current state of the products unveiled in CES things should be quite exciting especially for professionals, enthusiasts and gamers. As for us well like i said our workload has been quite heavy even during the holidays and so today we are taking a thorough look at the latest Full Tower PC Case by Akasa, the Venom Toxic Black."

CES 2013 Day 0 Coverage Posted At Legit Reviews
     Tue, Jan 08 2013 | 11:24A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS has been busy behind closed doors in the recent months. Today at CES 2013 in Las Vegas Nevada they were kind enough to open those doors and show off what they have been so diligently working on. We started off seeing a low power AMD APU mini ITX motherboard featuring the E2-2000 APU and followed that up with the more enthusiast products that we have come to love from ASUS. We were able to take a look at the new ASUS ARES II graphics card that features dual AMD 7970 GHz edition GPU`s, as well as the RAIDR Express. The RAIDR Express is the first entry for ASUS into the SSD market. With the ROG name behind it, it has a lot to live up to!"

SteelSeries Wireless WoW Mouse @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Jan 08 2013 | 9:47A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to mice designed for MMO use, options have been coming from all of the manufactures recently. One of the first, if not the first to enter the MMO mouse market, would be SteelSeries, with their original WoW mouse. Much like the game its based on, the SteelSeries WoW mouse has seen a couple versions, the latest being the new, wireless version. The last time we took a look at the WoW Mouse Legendary Edition we came out happy, I was excited to see what SteelSeries would do for their first wireless mouse. Lets dive in and see whats changed and what has stayed the same."
