Sapphire Radeon R9 290 Review @ ocaholic
     Thu, Sep 11 2014 | 11:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Radeon R9 290 has been introduced quite a while back and thanks to Sapphire we`re finally having a look at the reference model. As you might already know, the card comes with a blower type cooler and clocked at 947 MHz on the GPU and 5`000 MHz for the memory. Overall we`re curious to see what kind of damage this card can do."

AMD FX Refresh FX-8370 FX-8370e FX-9370 and FX-9590 @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Sep 11 2014 | 1:16A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While its been obvious AMDs big focus has been on their APUs for the last few years. Even so in the background they have still been making a few waves with the FX line of CPUs, the main one being the launch of the 5GHz CPU a little over a year ago. Just when we thought they may have forgotten about the enthusiasts they are actually introducing a few new CPUs to the FX lineup and making changes to the overall pricing structure to better place their CPUs to compete with Intels introductions over the summer. Today Im going to mainly be focusing on the newly introduced FX-8370 and the lower wattage FX-9370E, but AMD did send along the FX-9370 and the FX-9590 so we can see how the new CPUs perform in relation to their bigger brothers."

AMD FX-8370E AM3+ Processor Performance Review
     Thu, Sep 11 2014 | 1:16A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The newest installment of AMD FX CPUs is finally upon us. September 2014 marks the release of the a few new FX CPUs, including the FX-8370, the FX-8370E, and the FX-8320E. Although I, for one, have been anxious to see a new FX CPU lineup using Steamroller cores, the three CPUs released today follow the same pattern as the last two years worth of FX CPU in using Piledriver cores. With the AMD Kaveri APUs showing up at the beginning of 2014 with Steamroller cores, I thought perhaps the FX series wouldn`t be far behind. Looks like we will be waiting until next year at least. Today, Benchmark Reviews takes a look at the FX-8370 and FX-8370E processors."

AMD FX-8370e Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Sep 11 2014 | 1:16A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we take a look at the FX-8370e, which has a 95W TDP and features a base/turbo frequency of 3.3/4.3 GHz. Considering that power use is one of the primary concerns for some, these `e` series processors will make for a slightly more tempting purchase over other models."

AMD Radeon R9-285 - AMD FX 8370 and 8370E processor review

CM HAF Stacker 935 Mod-Tower Case Review: Part 1
     Wed, Sep 10 2014 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink

All of the HAF Stacker Series cases are designed to stack together in virtually limitless combinations. The individual cases can be used by themselves or combined into various Modular-Tower configurations. Having all that extra room can allow for building multiple systems in one large enclosure, or creating some very interesting custom cooling solutions."

ASUS marked their entry into the high-end sound card market with the Xonar Essence ST some years ago. Today, we will take a good look at the new STX II.
