    “VI.AnandTech, Hi Tech Legion, and PC Perspective

    Hmmmm you think they could as least support their TV tuners still, the last update was 8 months ago.

    §[<<]§ One word for that - Fail At the very least let the consumers know whether or not driver support is discontinued or an approx ETA for a new driver will be.

This is the first time it has ever been feasible to build a compact gaming system that won’t over heat or lose framerates after 20 hour gaming sessions ( i do live in Minnesota so it is naturally cooler here).

    “AnandTech, Hi Tech Legion, and PC Perspective

    The ultimate control panel will be when they ‘fuse’ CCC with Overdrive. As AnandTech states, this is coming later in 2011 with full control over CPU/GPU/APU. That will hopefully be a very nice utility. One option I hope will be in the utility is full control over Turbo Boost and Overdrive.

      Well it sure looks good this new control center thing.

      Think you’ll need a new system for it? I’ve never had any problems running their games.

      My God, the hours I spent playing Morrowind and Oblivion. Just disgusting. 😉

        • BoBzeBuilder

        Remember when Oblivion came out and how everyone was crying that they can’t run it at max settings? It was like the Crysis of its time, except the 8800GTX fixed it.

        Is it worse than my roomates FF11 hours?? I think after 3 yrs, he had 1 yrs worth of work hours, it was over 2000 lol

        Yea, he might.. when Oblivion first came out, people were crying the game was really hard to play outdoors even on the best GPU’s of the day. U might have probably played the game a couple of years after with a newer GPU.

          It ran on my friend’s laptop that had something ancient like a Radeon 9600. As is always the case, the problem was running it at max settings at high resolution. Most video cards probably didn’t even have enough RAM at the time, but that’s just about never the case now.

    It’s white monday up here, crazy blowing snow and -20C 🙁

    edit : “V.Fudzilla: Radeon HD 6970 slower than GTX 580 in 3DMark 2011”

    lolz who cares, both of them probly blow my 4850 outa the water, but it still runs the games I play great. Who buys a card based soley on 3DMark??

    These things crack me up, it’s like going to get a car and a salesman telling you that this chevy cavalier has a theoretical top speed of 200km/hr lol thats nice, but useless at the end of the day.
