Cooler Master CM Inferno Review
Saturday, 01 January 2011 17:36
The mouse is the bread and butter and ultimate tool
for anyone who plays games on the PC. Over the past dozen years there's been an
explosion in shapes and sizes of it and for all different utilities. It's
evolved quite nicely from a few buttons and a mouse ball to lasers, lights, and
more buttons than most people would ever know what to do with. That, however, is
not the case for gamers. Cooler Master has a new mouse out specifically built
for MMORPGs that are so popular, the Cooler Master Inferno.
Eyefinity Update: New Active DisplayPort to SL-DVI Adapter Thoroughly Tested

The mini active DisplayPort to DVI single link adapter is pictured above.
Way back in September of 2009 AMD flew me out to Oakland, and set me up on the USS Hornet for the unveiling of their Eyefinity multi-screen capable Radeon HD 5870. The demos were impressive, and I had a lot of fun playing Left 4 Dead on a set up that night. It was not until May of this year that my review of the technology was out. It was clear that it showed promise. Monitors were the main problem at this point. There were good games, and the drivers were maturing so little problems I had before were going away. It all boiled down to the monitors.
AMD Eyefinity CrossFire 6 Screen Review
Wednesday, 05 May 2010 15:42
Last September I was lucky enough to have AMD fly me out to California way to check out the unveiling of Eyefinity on the USS Hornet. Its a ship, not a boat. It was quite the tech demo with a variety of games on display and plenty of partners showing off wares. There was a bit of a look at the Frostbyte 2 engine that powers Battlefield Bad Company 2 now, a teaser of Aliens versus Predator, and some Crytek guys were on hand showing off their new engine. The main attraction was the Radeon HD 5870 Eyefinity Edition that packed 6 mini display port connectors and would single handedly push 6 monitors. Dirt 2 was the demo of choice although we also saw some Left 4 Dead action. Flash forward half a year and now many more games support Eyefinity, and at long last the Eyefinity Edition has arrived.
ATI Radeon 5670

We are well on our way into the New Year and as of yet ATI continues to face no real challenge from Nvidia on the DirectX11 front. This seems to be eerily familiar in a role reversal with ATI now leading the way and Nvidia lagging behind. It was way back in September when ATI launched it's new product which seems light years ago. In the mean time ATI continues to pump out SKUs in the 5000 series this time with the Radeon 5670, the first DX11 sub-$100 graphics card.
The core of the new card runs at 775MHz with 400 stream processors for the core and 1GHz with either 512 MB of 1GB of GDDR5 memory. The card should come in around 60W TDP and boasts the major features that all the 5000 series cards have of course including DX11, second-gen 40nm manufacturing process, Eyefinity, HDMI bitstreaming, UVD2, and video conversion.
The price point is $99 which means AMD has taken no time to get to the under $100 market and seems ready to move on their product line to the 5000 series as quickly as possible. Thw 1GB cards should go for about $10-15 more. This is one of the benefits of them targeting their highest end single GPU, upper mid-range market. Although these days with no competition even AMD's best single GPU cards go for more than $300 easily.
We've seen a similar chart since the 3000 series and with three generations this plan seems to have more than worked.
Not a shock but the mainstream segment is the largest segment for gaming.
ATI still gives you quite a bit of power for $99.
We're pressed for time so onto benchmarks.
