AMD A10-7870K APU Announced For $137 – Godavari or Kaveri
AMD today announced that the A10-7870K Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) will be the companies flagship FM2+ processor, which helps explain why AMD lowered the pricing on their APUs earlier this month. This processor was codenamed Godavari for some reason, but it's basically just a Kaveri refresh as the microarchitecture is still the same as it was on Kaveri and it's still being by GlobalFoundaries on the 28nm manufacturing process. Read on to find out all the details on this new APU!

NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV Review
Today is May 28th and that means the Google’s I/O 2015 Conference is underway. At last years conference Google talked about how Android would be everywhere, all the time and in January 2015 a number of companies were showing off Android TV devices at CES 2015 that showcased that Android would be a force to be reckoned with in the living room. NVIDIA announcing a device the day Google I/O 2015 kicks off is no coincidence as NVIDIA wants the software developer community to know that they have one of the premier devices for Android TV.

Android TV for those that don’t know is an operating system designed by Google for the living room. Android TV has a focus on digital TV content, apps and games, tied together by recommendations and voice search capabilities on dedicated remote controls. The Android TV enabled device that we are talking about would be the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV or you might know it by the name NVIDIA SHIELD console as many sites have been calling it that for months. NVIDIA has had several information slips in recent weeks that let most of the details be known about this Android TV device, but luckily there is still more to tell you about.

NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV Reviewed: Gaming And The Ultimate 4K Streamer
Over the past few months, we’ve covered a number of details related to today’s launch of the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV device. It was back in March during GDC that we were first able to show you the Tegra X1 powered SHIELD Android TV (then refered to as the SHIELD Console). And it was earlier in the year at CES when NVIDIA unveiled the Tegra X1 SoC itself, along with a number of X1-based automotive products.

To recap a bit, the Tegra X1 features a Maxwell-derived GPU and eight CPU cores; four ARM A57 cores and four A53s. The A57 cores are 64-bit, out-of-order designs with multi-issue pipelines, while the A53 cores are simpler, in-order, highly-efficient designs. Which cores are used will depend on the particular workload being executed at the time. The Tegra X1 also packs a 256-core Maxwell-derived GPU with the same programming capabilities and API support as NVIDIA’s desktop GPUs. And it has a video engine capable of full speed 4K 60FPS video playback...

Ozone Neon Precision Laser Mouse Review
While the Neon does not have any lights besides the DPI button, this isn't a bad thing or a deal breaker in any real decision making way. At this price point there are trade offs for everything. In this case, the Neon has great software and options, which while isn't new to some companies, it is better than most I've used. That being said, I believe this mouse is priced exactly for what it's worth. It's hard to ask for a mouse that is comfortable over long periods of time with decent software at this price point. At first I found this mouse to take a bit to get use to switching from my normal palm hand grip to a claw style grip, but it grew on me over time.

VisionTek 120GB Pocket SSD Review
No matter what line of work you are in, there are tools of the trade. Working in information technology, though, my tools tend to be more software oriented. In the past, this meant that I was carrying around many small flash drives with a specific set of files. With the price of storage being so much lower now, it is nice to be able to only have one or two of them to contain all of my utilities. For example, I have one drive that has all of my operating system installations on it, so no matter what system I am working on I can reinstall the OS, without digging around for the proper drive. The drive that I use for this happens to be the VisionTek 120GB Pocket SSD. This is a USB 3.0 drive that uses the LSI SandForce 2281 controller to enable high speed transfers. Performance on the VisionTek 120GB is rated for up to 445MB/s read and 440MB/s write, with random 4K performance of 39,000 IOPS. VisionTek has also designed this drive to be rugged with aircraft grade aluminum housing and a tight fitting rubber cap, for the on the go individual.
