amd-fx8370e-cpu-boxBy Josh Walrath @ PC Perspective

It seems like yesterday when I last talked about an AMD refresh! Oh wait, it almost was. Some weeks ago I was able to cover the latest AMD APU offerings that helped to flesh out the Kaveri lineup. We though AMD was done for a while. Color us wrong. AMD pulled out all the stops and set up an AM3+ refresh! There is a little excitement here, I guess. I am trying to contain the tongue-in-cheek lines that I am oh so tempted to write.

intel-pentium-g3258-cpu-boxWritten By: Nathan Kirsch @ Legit Reviews

The Intel Pentium G3258 20th Anniversary Edition processor was released to the public this week and Legit Reviews have been waiting for weeks to pick this processor up. Why have we been highly anticipating a low-end Intel Pentium processor? Well, we remember the old days when you could get massive overclocks on inexpensive processors and get some decent performance out of them. The days of using a pencil or rear window defogger kit to get a sick overclock are certainly a thing of the past, but that doesn’t mean that there still aren’t budget friendly processors that can be overclocked to the hilt. When Intel announced that they were coming out with a Pentium Processor Anniversary Edition processor we were excited. The thought of a cheap processor that was unlocked was no longer going to be a thing of a past that old timers reminisce about at LAN parties or to friends. The Intel Pentium G3258 20th Anniversary Edition processor has been released and it will be the budget overclocking champion for the DIY PC enthusiast of this generation!

intel-core-i7-4790k-devilscanyonBy: Hilbert Hagedoorn @ GURU3D

One of the most talked of processors this year has to be the product we are reviewing today. The Core i7-4790K. Dubbed and known as a Devils Canyon the new K model processor it finally has arrived in the highlands of that mystic land called Groningen in the Netherlands. Okay, lame puns aside, Intel last week announced a couple of K model processors. The Core i7-4790K will replace the 4770K as flagship processor. By itself that normally means a 100 MHz speed-bump, but know that for the 4790K things really are quite a bit different.
