News Feed

 - We have got some numbers on Fury X performance from internal AMD testing lab. While you should take them with grain of salt (because AMD cherry-picks tests and settings to look better) we can say that numbers are impressive. AMD Fury X can match GTX 980 Ti performance in majority of games and tests, including 4K resolutions. It’s like a tie mostly, price is the same as well. That bodes well with us, its a healthy competition that will drive prices down eventually.

 - First tests of AMD Radeon R9 390X are out - we can see Nvidia GTX 980 performance levels here. On a plus side -  price is lower, on negative - 390X is very hot and consumes a lot of power. Also its a 18 month old card now (rebrand of 290X with more memory). Still - it will fill in mid-high end spots in AMD lineup just below AMD Fury and Fury X/Nano.

 - We have finally got Broadwell processors to test. We know a lot of people waited for them to have their Haswell machines upgraded, but Broadwell does not offer much to desktop users at all. It has a bit lower stock clocks than Haswell with a bit higher price. Synthetic performance is better on Haswell due to higher clocks, gaming performance with discrete card is the same roughly. Broadwell has about twice better onboard GPU, but that does not interest us much, its more of a mobile user news (for laptops it’s great). Also Broadwell is around 20% more power efficient, but again - it’s good for laptops and HTPC, while on our gaming desktops we'd prefer to see higher clocks with higher TDP because we need that speed, not power savings.
 So, was the wait worth it? We say no, at least for desktop parts. With Skylake coming out soon with much more of an improvement on all sides Broadwell is just late to the party.

 - Have you seen that white Windows logo in bottom-right corner of your desktop screen? Its an invitation to free upgrade to Windows 10. It will stay there for year after launch, then you will loose that free option. At this point we can recommend Windows 10 upgrade over both 7 and 8.1, as we believe Microsoft did really good job at listening to customers and improving all aspects of OS experience. With DirectX 12, Cortana, new awesome Start Menu, absence of dreaded Start screen for desktops, new clean Edge browser, redesigned Windows Store - we can say that Windows 10 should be fantastic, at least we hope so. And consider it again - its a free upgrade, we would you want to skip it if no negatives surfaced yet?

Windows 10 official launch is on July 29! Almost any PC with Windows 7 or 8.1 will be able to get a free upgrade to WIn 10 on that day (or around it). You may already have an invitation on your taskbar. Upgrades are of equal value, Home->Home, Pro->Pro.
  MS is even going to offer some upgrade options for pirated versions of Win7/8, that's a new thing... not like we need this option but we welcome it. People don't realize how much better good version is vs pirated (multiple reasons, not just security).
New features in Win10:
- Edge - new browser
- Cortana, digital assistant (lonely? talk to your PC)
- DirectX 12
- Start Menu !!!

 - Windows 10 could be the last Windows. Well.. it's not like Windows goes away somewhere, but it's possible that there will be no 11,12... Microsoft announced that it works on an idea of evolving platform, which will not be exchanged for something else every 2-3 years but rather will be upgraded (either you want it or not?). Regular updates will still be free bigger "Upgrades" are likely to be paid options.

 - We may see some Android and iOS apps in Windows 10. Microsoft is releasing SDKs that will enable applications from both OS above to be adopted to Windows 10. MS is planning to push more app developers to create Windows apps which are still lacking. Windows may become a platform to “unite them all”.

 - Some info on Intel Skylake CPUs has been out for our views. There are bunch of i5 and i7 processors with support for both DDR3 and DDR4, frequencies are about the same and similar lineup of Haswell processors that we have now, so no bump there and some Skylakes are even below 3GHz stock. But since it's a "Tock" in their tick-tock progress we still should see around 15% performance bump compared to current gen or even Broadwell (which is just a die shrink).
  Plus new features, plus DDR4, could be something else, besides new LGA 1151 socket (that one extra pin makes it so special and incompatible with LGA 1150). Date - could be August this year, or later.

 - Acer shows the only curved monitor with G-Sync. It’s a 34” wide screen with 3440x1440 WQHD resolution, ultra wide 21:9. Some say curved monitors allow better in-game immersion and better area of peripheral vision and so on. But here is the stopper - $1000+ price. Is it worth it? Go to some electronics store and see for yourself, you you dig curved feature - go for it, if not - save some money.

 -  G.Skill is the first one to introduce 128GB DDR4 2800MHz RAM. For those 1% users that can take advantage of that - congratulations. The rest of us - let’s just enjoy the progress. Hopefully DDR4 will become a common standard soon, and not just a feature of a single X99 platform.

 - End of July might be the date when we will see Windows 10 released. It’s just a rumor, but still - some date in the future is better than none at all.

 - New AMD Carrizo APU is coming soon. There are a lot of improvements over current Kaveri promised to us. New x86 Excavator CPU cores will be utilized, new generation of Radeon GPU cores will be there as well. Carrizo will have 29% more transistors in the same die size as now, faster/more instructions processed per clock with 40% less power used. There will be on-chip H.265 video decode for true 4K resolution support, first time with APUs - Southbridge integrated. GPU will also be able to perform compute tasks, making it more interesting for future applications.
  Time will tell if all this is true and how good Carrizo will be in the end. We hope for good results, it could be a good competitor to Intel.
