Final Thoughts on AMDs Core Technology Update Presentation
     Thu, May 15 2014 | 1:06P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now, we have to wonder if the Excavator core will ever see the light of day? We will see Excavator based APUs in 2015, but how far will AMD go with this family of products? Roadmaps that we have previously seen may in fact be obsolete with where the company is moving. AMD has wisely decided to stop competing with Intel exclusively, and instead is competing against all of the ARM partners as well. This strategy does have its risks, but AMD is in a better position to compete against the likes of Qualcomm, Samsung, and others. They have certainly trained well for this new market, considering that they have survived (and at times thrived) some forty years while going head-to-head against the 800 pound gorilla of the semiconductor world."

ROCCAT Ryos MK Glow Gaming Keyboard Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, May 15 2014 | 11:18A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many gamers have heard of the company Roccat before as it is a gaming accessory company based out of Europe. They have been bringing their high end products to the USA for a few years now. One of their big sellers was their ISKU gaming keyboard which had many different macro combinations you were able to utilize thanks to the Easy Shift[+] Zones they incorporated to the keyboard along with the Thumbster keys. Now that Rocact has moved into mechanical keyboards and they have used the ISKU platform and changed a few things around and tossing in some Cherry MX Black switches which lead to the birth of the Roccat Ryos MK Glow keyboard."

Gigabyte F2A88XN-WIFI review @ Bjorn3d.com
     Thu, May 15 2014 | 10:18A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabytes F2A85XN-WIFI was one of the best mini-ITX board for the FM2 socket. With the release of the Kaveri (FM2+) APU, Gigabyte has updated their mini-ITX board with the latest A88X chipset. With the F2A88XN-WIFI, Gigabyte essentially retained the same overall design and the layout as the older board except it has swapped out the FM2 socket for the FM2+ so it will support AMD Kaveri and it has added support for 802.11ac. So if you are aiming to build a mini-ITX system with the latest AMD APU, you would probably want to check out this review for more information as to what the board has to offer. "

Daylight Review
     Wed, May 14 2014 | 1:06P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Is it worth running for the light, or shall the darkness consume us? That is hard to say to the point of it being something of a toss-up. I did enjoy playing Daylight, but it never impressed me enough to give it a strong recommendation. The graphics were generally good, but also had issues including the appearance of looking through a prism, occasionally broken geometry, and broken physics. The story is fairly weak and even predictable, but the telling is quite good. Daylight definitely sets its atmosphere well. The gameplay simply lacks the good design I would have liked to see it have, but nothing is too bad to be a real problem. If you enjoy survival horror games that are psychological in their design, then Daylight may be a game for you. Other than that, I am not sure who this may appeal to, as nothing really stands out that much beyond the environment it sets."
