09/25/2013, When it comes to graphics cards, remember the great war between NVIDIA and AMD? Well, all of that is in the past now, and while NVIDIA is definitely ahead most of the time, this does not mean that AMD is about to slide into the dark abyss. No sir, they still do churn out video cards from time to time that are worthy of a look, and this time around, […]

If we compare it to the rest of the Radeon HD 8000 family, it has nearly twice the number of processing unit (cores) when compared to the Radeon 8800M (1280 vs. 640). However, if you compare it with the […]

While Microsoft has not announced the details about its upcoming console, such a chip could mean that Xbox 720 will not be fully backwards compatible. It won’t be able to play game discs. The only way to play such games would be through emulation at software level. Microsoft is apparently going with AMD […]
