The second generation of AMD A-Series APUs is now among us. Hopefully you have been able to read our articles about the newest AMD Trinity Processors.

While the A85X chipset brings a few minor changes to the FCH, Gigabyte has added a lot of their own features to the F2A85X-UP4 motherboard to ensure that it meets all of the needs of early FM2 adopters."

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - DQS Training Control
     Tue, Dec 04 2012 | 3:18A | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the *DQS Training Control* setting."

Das Keyboard Professional Model S Mechanical Keyboard Review

Posted by: STAFF
As many of you have noticed (and some have even emailed us about it - keep doing that, it helps us to know what people want to see reviewed) we haven`t really focused on keyboard reviews lately mostly because there aren`t really that many new ones out there to review, at least not from known and/or respected manufacturers. However because many of you have asked we went ahead and gathered quite a few here (rather new models) which we`ve been testing for the past month or so. Now some of you may recall that when we reviewed the STRIKE 7 gaming keyboard by Mad Catz i pointed out that we would be bringing more reviews surrounding mechanical keyboards in the near future. Well the time has come and so today with us we have the latest professional grade mechanical keyboard by DAS KEYBOARD the Professional Model S."
