Asus invests its hopes in Lucid's Hydra and brings SLI to AMD with its latest CrossHair IV Extreme.
We uncover the motherboard magic that lets you get an extra core for free with some AMD CPUs.
A £40 graphics card? Surely that's as useful as a chocolate teapot? We take a look at AMD's latest and cheapest Radeon from the HD 5000 series, the HD5450, see how it stacks up against integrated graphics and find out in what situations it might be a great buy.
As probably the last Nvidia performance board we'll ever see: this AM3, DDR3 nForce 750 chipset G55 from MSI is one of the few SLI capable motherboards for AMD out there. How does it stack up against other budget AMD chipsets? We found out.
A cheap and cheerful 770X board that's worth buying? Wow! It seems pigs have not only infected us all, but they have also developed appendices for flight! MSI resets the rules and makes a cheap AMD motherboard that's really worth the money! Why pay more?
After something a full ATX motherboard with integrated graphics that doesn't break the bank? The Asus M4A785TD-V Evo is based on AMD's new 785G chipset, and also has 128MB of DDR3 sideport memory.
AMD has confirmed to bit-tech that its newest IGP, the 785G IGP, does NOT contain the hardware needed for 8 channel LPCM audio.
In conjunction with AMD's new 785G chipset, the elaborately named Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H is setup for AM3 and DDR3 support, as well as the latest integrated graphics with nifty home theatre features to boot. Is it worth the upgrade from 780G and how does it compare to a discrete HD 4350?
We test AMD's latest IGP, the 790GX, on Gigabyte's new board to see if the new integrated graphics and Hybrid CrossFire are a performance hit, and if the new chipset pair can really makes a difference.
