AMD Kaveri Delivers 20% Performance Improvement

AMD_Logo

During the CES 2014, AMD has officially released the next generation APU, the A10-7000 Series APU codenamed “Kaveri”. We have already know quite a lot about the Kaveri and cannot wait to get our hand at one so we can test it out.  The Streamroller CPU core is an improved version of the Piledriver CPU core found in the Richland. Architecturally, there is not much difference between the two cores except that the Streamroller has a better performance and lower power consumption. The GPU, on the other hand, has a much bigger improvement as it features AMD Graphic Core Next (GCN) architecture that is the same as those found in the current generation of the AMD R7 series Radeon GPU. The GPU shares many of the same technology as the desktop GPU, including TrueAudio, DirectX 11.2, Mantle, PCI Express 3.0 support, and others. Two key innovations with the latest generation ...

OCZ Technology Launches New Enterprise​-Class Intrepid 3000 Series SSDs

OCZ_Intrepid_3000

OCZ has had some bad news lately with the filing for bankruptcy but the Toshiba buyout may helped the company coming back even stronger. The bad news does not prevent the company from releasing a new product. Today, OCZ has released a new Intrepid 3000 Series enterprises SSD. The Intrepid 3000 uses OCZ Everest controller based on Marvell 88SS9187 controller (same as in Vertex 4) paired with OCZ’s own proprietary firmware. The drive has a rated 520 MB/s for sequential read (128K blocks), 470 MB/s sequential write (128K blocks), 91,000 IOPS random read and 40,000 IOPS random writes. The number reported here may seemed a bit lower than what we used to but it is based on the steady state which the drive is writing, erasing and re-writing data repeatedly over the full capacity of the rive. So these are the worst case scenario number. For the enterprise market, data ... Read More »

Gigabyte Aivia Osmium Cherry Brown Mechanical Gaming Keyboard (GK-OSMIUM BRN)

Gigabyte_Osmium

Gamers love their mechanical keyboards and have their own preferred switch. The distinctive clicky feel from a mechanical keyboard offers gamers superior feedback where very little actuation force is needed to register the key is ideal for the repeated action and the multiple press in games. In many FPS shooter games, that milliseconds of response time can be a matter of life and death. So gamers swear by their mechanical keyboard.     When Gigabyte first launched the Aivia Osmium keyboard, it came with the Cherry Red MX switch that we had reviewed a while back. While the linear feedback from the Red switch offers smooth feedback that is ideal for gaming, it may not be the best if you use the PC for more than just repeated tapping action in games. If you also use PC for typing, the Cherry Red MX maybe too sensitive. Or if you are ... Read More »
