AMD A10-7850K Review reported at 01:19 PM
category: AMD Socket FM2+ CPUs     website: Hardcoreware
Article Quote:
One major advantage of Kaveri – and most of AMD’s products – is that overclocking is completely opened up and free to use. We were able to take our sample to 4.7 GHz quite easily with non-overclocking motherboards. The GPU overclock was even more impressive, at 1020 MHz. The fact that you can get this kind of speed without paying a premium should be a major point of consideration for potential users. This kind of overclock almost certainly makes up for the lack of pure clock performance compared to the competition. Results vary though, so keep that in mind.

AMD A8-7600 Review reported at 01:10 PM
category: AMD Socket FM2+ CPUs     website: PC Perspective
Article Quote:
"The AMD A8-7600 APU is a fantastic processor that will surely find a home in users systems and OEM PCs that need the 45 watt thermal limit. It offers adequate CPU performance and well above the average GPU performance to show that even though AMD definitely has issues on the processor side, it is innovating in the key areas of visual and heterogeneous computing. For DIY buyers that want a very cool and quiet HTPC or SteamOS build, the A8-7600, priced at just $139 based on AMD's estimates, will be a fantastic choice."

AMD A10-7850K Review reported at 01:04 PM
category: AMD Socket FM2+ CPUs     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
AMD compares its new processor to the Intel Core i5 4670K (even if the Core i5 4570 is a fairer match), and if you want to assemble an affordable PC without dedicated graphics card, then the Kaveri is indeed the best choice. It's fast enough for gaming, and your system will be prepared for the (hopeful) future of more GPU-accelerated software. If you plan on buying a separate graphics card, we would recommend the Core i5.

AMD A10-7850K Review reported at 12:59 PM
category: AMD Socket FM2+ CPUs     website: HardwareHeaven
Article Quote:
In situations where we rely purely on CPU based performance Intel continue to have the edge core for core but the gap continues to close with every AMD generation. Discrete GPU performance also favours an Intel based system, for now. Integrated GPU performance is a different matter though with AMD excelling in this area, as well as power use where the A10 beats the equivalent chip. Gaming at 1920x1080 was possible on this APU in each of the games we tested which is a nice bonus. As is the free copy of Battlefield 4 with the new A10 chips.

AMD Kaveri A10-7850K & A8-7600 Review reported at 12:52 PM
category: AMD Socket FM2+ CPUs     website: HardwareCanucks
Article Quote:
Kaveri isn’t lacking potential and competes well on a price / performance level with some Intel offerings but I constantly found myself wondering how great the A10 7850K could have been if AMD had at least managed to match the previous generation’s clock speeds. With OpenCL 2.0 still in its infancy, HSA features inaccessible in the current driver stack, legacy instruction sets still prevalent in today's software and the glacial speed of GPU accelerated application development, there’s very little reason to spend the extra money for an “unlocked” 95W APU. Especially when a significantly less expensive 65W model can offer just as much, if not more.

Dell UltraSharp 32 Review reported at 12:40 PM
category: 20/22/24 INCH     website: TechSpot
Article Quote:
"With that said, the UP3214Q suffers a number of imperfections that might make you reconsider plopping $3,500 down on a display. The tiled design both limits alternate resolutions and (currently) produces mildly erratic behavior. Connectivity options are few and the ones it does have (HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort 1.2) are already obsolete -- HDMI 2.0 is already in the wild and DisplayPort 1.3 will arrive this year. I would have loved to see an HDMI 2.0 port on this thing, but DP will cater to most. Unfortunately, the muggle world still hasn’t warmed up to 4K yet either, meaning content befitting a wizard is unfavorably sparse (mildly put). And let’s not forget about gaming: ultra high-def gaming is painfully expensive, but with no option for lower resolutions, owners don’t have a choice but to pay up for decent frame rates at high quality settings. Screen-hungry professionals who lead double lives as casual gamers might think twice, as a result."

Cooler Master Seidon 120V Review reported at 12:15 PM
category: CPU Coolers     website: Frosty Tech
Article Quote:
"If quiet liquid cooling is what you seek, the Coolermaster Seidon is not the best option. An air cooled heatsink like the Noctua NH-U14S or NH-C14 will offer similar thermal performance with a lot less noise. Running the Seidon 120V at reduced fan speeds will cut down on noise output, but the heat exchanger will also starve for air and temperatures will increase."

eVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Dual Classified ACX Review reported at 12:08 PM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: techPowerUp!
Article Quote:
EVGA's latest GTX 780 Ti Classified comes with the highest out-of-the-box performance we've ever seen from a single GPU graphics card. It is the fastest GTX 780 Ti we tested so far. Averaged over our benchmark selection, we see the card 10% faster than the stock GTX 780 Ti and almost 20% faster than AMD's R9 290X. 20% is a big deal, so EVGA's GTX 780 Ti Classified is the way to go if you want the highest performance and can afford it. The card is even a few percentage points faster than the previous generation's dual-GPU flagships, the GTX 690 and HD 7990.
