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, […]
05/15/2013, AMD has launched its latest graphics processor (GPU) for mobile PCs: the AMD Radeon HD 8970M is going to be AMD’s highest-performing laptop GPU, probably until the next generation architecture hits. 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 […]
03/21/2013, AMD just announced its new Radeon HD 7790 graphics processor (GPU) which will go in add-on cards immediately from close to ten partners right away. This new chip uses a new design which was created to improve the performance for the price, and for the power consumption, two key metrics when “absolute performance” (at any cost) is no longer the name of the game. The Radeon 7790 uses the Graphics […]
03/05/2012, AMD has just announced its new Radeon HD 7870 and Radeon HD 7850 graphics cards. The overall performance is very good, and we were particularly impressed by how well the Radeon HD 7870 performs in games like BattleField 3: it matches NVIDIA’s GTX 580, but does so at a much lower price point (rumored $250 vs. $450). In terms of power consumption, both AMD Radeon HD 7800-Series do very well […]

12/22/2011, AMD has just released its new Radeon HD 7970. It is a new design based on AMD’s “Graphics Core Next” that had been presented earlier in the year. The goal of this new design was two-fold: 1/win the single GPU performance crown 2/ perform much better in non-graphics computing. Both aspect are critical for AMD because graphics processors obviously need to be fast at gaming in order to sell. However, […]
12/16/2011, How seriously do you take iRacing? Well, it seems that gamer Chad Smith is such a fan of the game and takes it so seriously to the point where he actually set up a racing rig to play the game across 5 monitors. Unfortunately the photo above does not do his setup justice and you will have to check it out in action in the video below.
12/05/2011, The Mac Pro is currently about 15 months old since its last refresh. Unlike its other Mac siblings, the iMac, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, the Mac Pro has yet to see a refresh in 2011 and many are wondering if there is even a plan for a refresh, and thanks to Mac OS X 10.7.3 beta, there may be some evidence discovered that points to a possible Mac Pro […]
11/25/2011, Desktop too cluttered with your tower casing, peripherals and whatnot? Well, CompuLab’s fit-PC3 is finally available and upon first glance, if you did not know any better, the fit-PC3 could be mistaken for some sort of router or external hard drive. In reality it’s actually a computer which packs an AMD APU in either single-core or dual-core options.
11/17/2011, While ultrabooks may or may not become the new standard for notebooks, if you can’t afford the price of an ultrabook, ASUS has an alternative for you in the form of their new ASUS U32U notebook, which costs about half the price of an ultrabook.
07/12/2011, For those who started gaming later on, it might seem as though it has been time immemorial since AMD and NVIDIA started slugging it out (with the former under the guise of ATI, of course) when it comes to conquering the GPU scene. Well, the position for top dog position in this area has been traded between them over the course of time, but at the moment, it might be […]
04/20/2011, iBUYPOWER is no stranger when it comes to churning out gaming machines for the masses, and their past track record have been rather impressive to say the least.

01/10/2011, The Asus Eee PC 1015B could very well be the smaller brother to the Eee PC 1215B, as this little puppy that could is running on the AMD Fusion platform, sporting a 1.6GHz dual core AMD 350 processor alongside AMD Radeon HD graphics – now how about that? It should be faster than your standard Atom-powered netbook, delivering a better graphics experience although those who have NVIDIA ION-powered netbooks will […]
