 BUYING GUIDE

 - 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.

 - GTA V PC release is delayed again, it's either March 22 or April. Rockstar is working on an update to the game that was some time back on consoles. First-person mode will be added. Hopefully bugs reduced for smooth release.

 -  There is already Windows 7 style Start Menu released for Windows 10. Old is new again, MS brings Start back but not how we like it?

 - As seemed destined to happen, the Federal Communications Commission voted today to reclassify broadband Internet service as a public utility, thus giving the FCC the power it sought to implement strict net neutrality rules. The new rules were approved in a 3-to-2 vote and also apply to mobile Internet service, though the war isn't over just yet -- opponents of the Title II classification are sure to mount a legal challenge, and though it's an uphill battle, they may have an easier time convincing a court to issue a stay on the new rules.
  Under the new rules, ISPs will not be allowed to implement paid fast lanes, block access to legal content or services, or throttle speeds unless it's for "reasonable network management," such as upgrades to the infrastructure.

 - Microsoft has long neglected the PC when it comes to gaming, but with Windows 10, it appears the company is interested in turning a new leaf. The company will be giving several Windows 10 gaming talks and will also host a panel titled “Advanced DirectX12 Graphics and Performance.” Microsoft is also trying to push more cross platform play between Windows gamers and Xbox One users so it wouldn't be too surprising to see more cross platform announcements.

 - Lenovo promises to stop installing bloatware (spam/crap/adware) on their computer starting with Windows 10. Lenovo sells a lot of computers and most people like Lenovo for what it is - supplier of computers with good combination of low price, good performance and reliability. But in the recent month it was discovered that Lenovo puts an adware on all computers that poses a serious security threat - Superfish. And that puts a BIG dent in reputation that is earned for years and lost in seconds.

  - It looks like Internet Explorer is going away, at least from Windows 10. We don't know if it will work there (most likely) but we know that MS will include new browser in it with new name - Spartan. 
  MS says it's completely different from IE, it's not just some IE 12 or something. Just as MS jumped Win9 name because it says changes are so dramatic, same this new explorer will be something completely new. For a hint - we can say that it will look like Chrome, it will be lightweight, hopefully fast.

 - New Maxwell chip from Nvidia is coming soon, with some pictures of it circulating on the net. It has 3072 CUDA cores, 12GB VRAM and other goodies. The board with chipset di not have any DVI though, just DP and HDMI. Overall it looks like GTX 980 Ti or another Titan mod.

 - G.Skill pushed DDR4 to 4255MHz speed, that's a current record. Can be used on X99 chipset with Intel i7 CPUs. Hopefully will come to more platforms soon, it's overdue. By the way regular 4GB DDR4 stick was used with one of ASUS motherboards, so it's not anything overly-exotic, other than liquid-nitrogen cooling on CPU used

 - Microsoft is giving away Windows 8 for free for machines with less than 9” screens and some bigger laptops, making them very attractive with prices in $200 range or even less. Though MS does not plan to be so generous with Windows 10, it will not be free :-) . MS is looking into other ways to make profits off of Windows via different services implemented. Looks like MS wants to make it like games with in-app purchases. That would not be fun.

 - AMD just released new Catalyst Omega driver which it describes as biggest advancement in AMD driver history and best software update it released this year, just In time for holidays.

"It's our of way of saying 'Thank you' and Happy Holidays," AMD stated in a blog post, though it's much more than that. Catalyst Omega represents a new era in driver design for AMD, one what will see major updates overflowing with new features, performance enhancements, and bug fixes, in addition to the regularly scheduled releases that are usually game-specific in optimizations. In a way, it's sort of like rival Intel's tick-tock schedule for CPUs, though instead of die shrinks and architecture changes, AMD's minor and major Catalyst releases will feature enhancements and feature-packed upgrades.

 - AMD slashed prices on many APU (processors with integrated GPUs) quite significantly. Kaveri may be no Haswell, but for the price and integrated GPU quality AMD has a champ. If you are planning to build cheap gaming desktop, like on really tight budget - check our website soon for new pricing on AMD APU models with nice graphics performance.

 - Activision updated recommended requirements for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
Windows 7 64-bit / Windows 8 64-bit / Windows 8.1 64-bit
Intel Core i5 2500K @ 3.3GHz
8GB RAM
Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 @ 4GB
55GB available space
100 percent DirectX 9.0c compatible 16-bit sound card

That's quite a lot, especially on GPU front. We expect all computers to have at least 8GB RAM, but 55GB for game alone is a bit much as well, we wonder were they are headed. Not so long ago when 120GB SSD drives became affordable we hoped to have Windows and a few games on them. Now it's just Windows and a few pictures, games have to go to backup HDD, or get bigger SSD.

  - X99 chipsets are added to our website. Check Vega  http://centauruscomputers.com/html/vega_extreme.html . Built in beautiful NZXT Phantom 240 White case, it houses newest Intel X99 chipset with top performing i7 processors, fastest six and eight core CPUs. On top of that you get DDR4 memory that starts at 2133MHz. Best video cards, SSD drive, 80+ certified PSU, performance CPU coolers, it's a short list of what's included in Vega!
