China have ‘Gamified’ Your Life and It’s Frightening

China is one of the weirdest countries on the planet and I swear that they must have a weekly government meeting where they brain storm and there really are no bad answers or suggestions and one of these ideas was to have your life as a citizen ‘gamified’ and that is freakishly scary.

Instead of us explaining everything, we will give you a brief rundown and let the video explain things in more detail. To start with, it’s worth noting that the system is not mandatory now, but will be in 2020.

How will I be ‘gamified’?

The whole system is run partly by Tencent who own RIOT Games and have “interests” within EPIC Games and Activision Blizzard as well as Alibaba.com (China’s equivalent competitor to Amazon) and of course the Chinese government. Instead of monitoring your credit score like we have in the UK and US, where you can check if you’ve paid your bills on time, gone overdrawn and so forth, instead, it will measure other aspects of your life such as how obedient you have been as a Chinese citizen. This will include accessing information about you from social media such as sharing news stories that are favourable to China and therefore increasing your score compared to sharing bad publication pieces that would harm the worth of China as a country. To add to this, Alibaba will share information on your purchases such as if you are buying locally sourced produce and tools that are made in China compared to important goods from other countries which will have a detrimental effect as you’re not helping the Chinese economy.

Sounds bad right? It gets worse…

If you are a model citizen and are following all of the rules and have an amazing score, you’re onto a winner and will be the top of the town, but if you suddenly become friends with an old chum from school who posts news clippings onto social media that hurt the reputation of China, then your score will go down too. Not really fair is it?

It’s dubbed as Sesame credit and is quite scary as it uses the same mantra that we know and love from games but in a bad way. We see the whole republican/liberal/democrat stigma happen day in and day out in America and the UK and I can only assume that this will force people to be even more right wing which will have a negative outcome on the tourist industry to China among other aspects.

For the most part, the average citizen will not think much of this, but as it develops, it will become more mainstream and people will start obsessing over their score and this could lead to a lot of negative things such as violence, crime and the simple act of playing the blame game.

Would you like to live in a real-world video game like this? I know I wouldn’t.

Jon Snow Dances to Drake’s ‘Hotline Bling’ – Wins The Internet

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gOK25u2RhaU

Based on the title for those not in the United Kingdom, you may have been thinking that you was going to see some epic dance moves from the Game of Thrones star but alas that isn’t the case. For those who are aware of the Channel 4 presenter with the same name, you’ll be delighted that for the Big Fat Quiz Of The Year show hosted by Jimmy Carr, the news host had some amazing moves to put down as part of a question for the celebrity panel.

Jon Snow is a bit of a favourite on this side of the pond after he participated on the show “Drugs Live: Cannabis On Trial” where he got “stoned” in front of millions of viewers on television and if you missed it, you can watch it on Channel 4’s On-Demand service here. Resident doctor Christian Jessen was also features on the programme and explained that the resulting consequences of Jon Snow featuring on the programme wouldn’t be long term, but after watching these dance moves, we can’t be so sure and can only assume that he may still be smoking the banned substance.

Jon Snow tweeted after the show aired with his own comments, and this just makes him like us even more.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a famous person attempt to dance along to the Drake tune, with Donald Trump getting in on the action for a Saturday Night Live (SNL) parody back in November, and you can check that out below:

Who would you like to see attempting the ‘Hotline Bling’ dance next? Personally, we’d love to see Bill Gates, Elon Musk and Tim Cook as we’re pretty sure that none of them have as much swag as Jon Snow does as evident in the video at the top of this page.

Windows 10 Pre-Order Available at Major E-tailer

With Windows 10 nearly upon us, we’ve managed to get some inside knowledge that Microsoft have given the go ahead for retailers to accept pre-orders. While we’re unsure if this is limited to the UK at the moment, we can only assume that this would be a worldwide marketing push.

Scan Computers informed us that Microsoft had given them the go ahead and can only assume that other retailers will be following suit shortly after.

If you are in the UK, you’ll find all you need to know on the following link where you can choose between the home and pro editions and of course whether you want 32-bit or 64-bit.

Pre-Order here!

Scan Computers have also got a Windows 10 landing page live which can be found here.

Will you be buying Windows 10? Will you be pre-ordering it, or will you wait to see what the verdict is after others take the plunge?

 

NVIDIA Increases the Shield Gaming Library – Including HL2: Episode Two

Since getting my original Shield portable and then along the road; the Shield tablet, of course I’m now eager to get my hands on the Shield Android TV and for many good reasons. It was the set of devices that allowed me to ditch my iPad and helped to open a whole new realm of possibilities and the first being gaming, which is NVIDIA’s bread and butter so to speak.

With a whole host of games, ready at your fingertips to be streamed directly to your device, NVIDIA have been constantly adding more titles to their library, and we’re not talking some shoddy 2D indie games. We’re seeing top titles, new and old and the latest update sees a wave of over ten games including Half-Life 2: Episode Two.

Other key titles that are worth a look are Doom 3: BFG Edition, Star Wars: KOTOR and War Thunder to name a few and with more on the way thanks to the launch of the NVIDIA Shield Android TV, we will be anxiously waiting for Resident Evil 5, Borderlands 2 and much more.

Do you own a Shield device? If so, what games are you currently playing? It’s also worth remembering that you can stream games from your NVIDIA powered PC, just in case it’s not available on the NVIDIA Shield gaming library.

Thank you to Fudzilla for providing us with this information.

ASUS AMD R9 Fury STRIX Pricing Revealed

With the Fury X launch behind us, and our very own review of the single card available to read here and a mammoth CrossFireX review here, it is apparent that not everyone will be able to afford these monster cards, so instead, many are waiting for the Fury (Non X) model and with lots of rumours circulating round, one thing that hasn’t been clear is the pricing. Until now.

A German price comparison site is listing two retailers showing pricing for the ASUS STRIX R9 Fury DC3 4G Gaming graphics card with a premium of €623.90 at Computer-PC-Shop and €636.75 at akabpc.

While we’ve never heard of these retailers ourselves, I am personally familiar with price comparison site Geizhals.de which shows the cards with various information on the specifications and delving deeper does show that the two retailers have ratings and reviews from previous customers, making this pricing seem even more believable.

Looking at the Euro price of around €630 and doing a rough conversion, this equates to around £450 GBP and $700 USD, but with various taxes to take into consideration, I would take my wacky maths skills with a pinch of salt until we start to see retailers listing the cards at both UK and US retailers.

If you’re unsure on the specifications of the Fury (Non X) you can find them here and with talk of the card being air-cooled, we won’t see any of the issues that has struck the Fury X card and it’s AIO cooling block.

What price would you be willing to pay for the R9 Fury card? Also taking note that this is the ASUS STRIX model listed which as we know will command a slight premium over a reference card.

AMD Are NOT Splitting up Their Business or are They?

You may remember a story that we published yesterday commenting on the fact that AMD could be splitting its business in two or dividing up the server division of the company and while this attracted a lot of talk from within the industry and with end users alike, an AMD spokesperson has denied the rumour although the exact wording still leaves things a bit sketchy in our minds.

The following has been sent to eTeknix to confirm:

AMD Spokesperson Sarah Youngbauer: AMD provided official confirmation that we have not hired an outside agency to explore spinning-off/splitting the company. We remain committed to the long-term strategy we laid out for the company in May at our Financial Analyst Day, which encompasses all parts of the business.

While most would consider the matter now closed, I do have to analyse the point mentioned about an outside agency. This is a bit hazy in its own right, as all AMD have done here is confirmed that an outside agency has not been hired to explore options, but this says nothing about doing anything more internal within the company itself.

Who knows what the future may hold for AMD, but with a lot of negative press regarding AMD as of late in regards to the 300 series re-branded products and the way their PR has dealt with the upcoming Fury graphics card launch, anything is possible for AMD while they are still in these uncertain times.

EXCLUSIVE: AMD 300 Series & Fiji Slideshow Leaked

With the impending launch upon us, we thought that it was only right that we shared some information that was anonymously sent to us by an eTeknix reader.

Enjoy the slides from this AMD presentation. We can only assume that these will be used at any press briefings in the upcoming day or so in Germany and the USA.

Tesla Motors’ Website Hacked

Following on from our story about the official Tesla Twitter being hacked, it seems that their website was targeted too. Whether this was by the same team of hackers as the Twitter attack, we can only assume that it was as this is to much of a coincidence to happen around the same time and to the same company.

While it seems that everything is back to normal, we were able to get a screenshot of the hack in place (see above) and have even found a video image of the hack too of which you can see here.

It does seem that everything is back under control but how and why both the official Twitter and website of Tesla were hacked is anyone’s guess, but for the most part we are assuming it’s because “they can”.

It is worth noting that the official Facebook page of the company does seem to remain intact but this could be the next target for the hackers, so keep your eyes peeled and we will be sure to bring you more information if the story develops further.

Playtech’s Unrolls Campaign Manager to Optimise Offers

Playtech technology makes for more tailored gaming

Playtech is perhaps the most important name in online gaming. Established in 1999 and floated on the London Stock Exchange in 2006, Playtech is the world’s leading provider of online gaming software. Many of the top brands online and offline are supported by Playtech. That means that when Playtech trial a new product, the gaming world takes notice.

International market leaders on the scale of Ladbrokes, SkyBet, William Hill, Bet365 and Titanbet are supported by Playtech’s turnkey products and support services. In effect, what is presented to users is simply a branded skin that masks the generic machinery that different operators hold in common.

Campaign Manager

Over recent months Playtech have been trialling a new Campaign Manager which is designed to enable operators to more successfully target their clients in terms of bonuses, incentives, cross-game appeals and direct messages. From the client’s perspective, what the Campaign Manager delivers is a series of offers, products, games and messages that are ever-more perfectly attuned to their individual gaming interests, habits and spending levels.

Rather than being distracted with messages or options that are of little relevance, what the Campaign Manager is designed to achieve is a gaming environment in which the player’s own preferences and gaming history determine what he or she is presented with online. As part of that process the new Campaign Manager assesses and inform the marketing of different initiatives offered by a particular provider.

Positive feedback

Anouck Chazelas, CRM Division Manager at Titanbet casino, was enthusiastic in describing Titanbet’s experience with the new Campaign Manager. She was quoted on Playtech’s website as saying:

“Campaign Manager has allowed us to fully automate many of the conversion, retention and reactivation cycles which we previously performed manually, allowing us to focus our resources on optimising our offers and improving our targeting. It’s also helped us significantly increase productivity within our marketing operations teams and gives us a faster time-to-market for new ideas.”

Technology development

Ordinarily, players are not too concerned with what happens behind the scenes at their favourite online casino or betting provider. It is in the nature of digital technologies that their interest horizon is limited to the specific gaming opportunities at their fingertips. Nonetheless, the level of sophistication and the extent of the market analysis that goes into making online gaming so popular in the first place are not to be underestimated. It is what makes the gaming experience user-friendly in the first place. The move to handheld technologies is merely the latest evolutionary step in that process. Inevitably, Playtech’s designers have factored that into their calculations. Ultimately, what results are better games and more satisfied gamers.

Global growth

The rate at which the online gaming industry is expanding across the globe is testament to the quality of Playtech’s products and services. It is estimated that mobile gaming will account for as much as 40% of the world’s online gambling spend by as early as 2018. Given that the online gaming industry has only been in existence for a little over 10 years, that degree of penetration speaks volumes.

Playtech is formally based in the Isle of Man and employs approximately 3,500 individuals worldwide. In 2014 its revenues increased by 21.2% to €214.4 million, resulting in a profit of €96.8 million.

Apple Job Vacancy Suggests Virtual Reality Development

Virtual Reality (VR) is widely considered to be the next frontier for technology companies. With touch-screen technology being perfected and implemented within various devices and 3D displays becoming increasingly common, the next piece of Sci-Fi tech awaiting to escape the confines of fiction is doubtlessly VR.

Various forms of this technology – which would allow users, via a headset, to be surrounded and situated within a virtual world – have been in development for some years but has yet to reach beyond prototype stage. With internet technologies quickly accelerating and virtual locations like online casinos and movie-streaming websites becoming more popular, there has never been a better time for VR to become a reality. Imagine being actually surrounded by the glowing slot-machines of Supercasino – which can be viewed here – or being fully immersed within the climatic battle at the end of The Avengers via Netflix. There is a growing market for this technology and an equally expanding variety of websites that could implement it. Considering this, it is unsurprising that the race to releasable VR technology has heated up significantly in recent years.

Various VR projects , from Google Cardboard to Sony’s Project Morpheus, have been announced and subsequently stalled. However, today hopes for the practical realisation of this technology were again raised with the discovery of a telling job advertisement on the US’s Apple website. This advertisement outlined a new role, for a software engineer, that would involve the creation of apps integrated with VR technology. The need for the development of compatible apps not only suggests that Apple is developing VR technology but that it is nearing completion. Furthermore, the jobs requirements, of the prospective employee, were familiar to anyone interested in VR. The needed familiarity with VR components as 3D Graphics programming and Virtual/augmented reality development being particularly telling.

This inadvertently announced development is the first piece of information regarding Apple’s entry into the VR arena since last December. During this month, an Apple patent for a head-mounted goggle display, from 2008, was revealed. This device, which is suspected to look like ski goggles, would be designed to allow people to be immersed within media – such as films, televisions shows etc – whilst travelling. If this design ever became physical, it would be directly competing with the Oculus Rift and Samsung’s Gear VR.


The way for Apple to surpass these rivals would be for its variation of VR to be able to neutralise the intrinsic nausea that other prototypes have caused to human test subjects. The full integration offered by VR, which is essentially its primary selling-point, confuses the brain’s perception of motion and therefore can lead to a form of sea sickness. Whilst this does not effect everyone, its threat of occurring has been sighted as one of the main stumbling blocks in bringing VR to the mainstream market. Therefore if Apple can solve this problem, the future VR market would be there for the taking.

New Study Shows Shy People Make More Friends In Online Gaming

A new study confirms what many of you may have already assumed/believed about shy people who frequently play video games online: They are more likely to gain friends in a virtual setting than in real life.

According to VG Researcher, the study—it was performed by a German university (the University of Münster)—focused on “the relationship between online videogame [sic] involvement and gaming-related friendship among emotionally sensitive individuals.” They polled a total of 396 respondents through a telephone survey in March and April 2013, during which they found that “emotionally sensitive players are using online gaming spaces differently from their less emotionally sensitive counterparts.”

In other words, they are creating more friendships online than they more socially active counterparts. Part of the reason for that, the study claims, is that shyer people “overcome their traditional social difficulties and generate new friendships as well as strengthen old ones.” Without being thrust into sometimes-awkward face-to-face interactions, people with social anxieties can exercise more freedom in an online setting. They can speak with whoever they want and however they want, though more important than that is the fact that they’re talking to others about something they all find interesting: the game itself.

Just look to the latest Bungie game, Destiny, for example. While this first-person shooter can be enjoyed as a single-player experience through the campaign mode, it (like many other games of its ilk released of late) is far more entertaining when played with others online. And it’s not difficult to imagine that the shyer people out there playing the game are forging new relationships while also trying to grind their character to the next level for a new weapon, armor upgrade, etc. To be frank, can you think of a better way to accomplish all of this? Surely doing it by yourself can be fun, but is it as much fun as doing it with other players? No.

Although it may seem obvious, the importance of anonymity also helps for shy people in feeling more comfortable at the gaming aspect, too. This is something stressed at InterCasino, an online gaming platform where users can disclose as much information about themselves as they’d like. As long as you sign up with the proper details, the rest of how you present yourself is in your hands, and that goes for whether you do something single-player like slots or go up against actual opponents in the live casino. It’s the latter that can be a bit more intimidating to players, so playing online feels more comfortable and relaxed as you can go at your own pace and choose how involved you want to get.

What do you, the reader, think about this study and its results? Does it simply confirm what you already thought or do you think it was worth putting a study like this together? Let us know in the comments!

8K 7680×4320 Resolution Coming from NVIDIA and AMD

All we ever hear about lately is 4K and how it’s the latest and greatest technology and for the most part it is, and with lower prices occurring every day, it’s becoming more and more affordable for the average gamer.

For those not in the know, 4K offers four times the resolution of Full HD 1080p and if you haven’t had a chance to experience that yet, we advise you to stop what you’re doing and head down to your local Best Buy, PC World or wherever to check it out for yourself in all its glory.

For those who have experienced 4K, you may be wondering what the next logical step is, and of course (even with the mention of 5K surrounding the watercooler) it’s actually 8K. We had our first experience of this at CES 2014 when we saw Sharp showcasing their 8K TV, but compared to the quality of the illustrious 4K 85″ monster from Samsung, it didn’t actually look that impressive, but I guess it was still early days, as they were the only brand showing off 8K, most likely trying to win the numbers game, I guess.

PCGamesN took some time to dig into 8K a little bit further, and to discuss with both AMD and NVIDIA to get feedback on this upcoming technology and exactly what they are both doing to bring it to market. Upon speaking to AMD’s Chief Gaming Scientist, Richard Huddy about 8K, he had the following to say:

“If we get to a display resolution of about 8k horizontally and about 6k vertically then, for a player with 20/20 vision, they will have something that is close to perfect for their visual system.”

After looking at the human eye, we know that beyond the above mentioned sizes, the eye won’t be able to see any more detail, meaning that 8K and beyond could potentially be pretty pointless, apart from being part of the numbers game, as Sharp have already tried showing.

NVIDIA also commented on the same issue, with their head of GeForce GTX saying:

“4K for most GPUs is pretty tough, the 980 handles it well but it’s still one of those things that the more GPUs you have the better it looks.”

Obviously having the raw GPU power is one thing, but we also need a few extra pieces of the puzzle to make it all fit together, and this includes the DisplayPort bandwidth and of course the extreme refresh reate that will be needed too.

Looking at the further comments from Richard Huddy, he believes that 8K won’t blossom like 4K did, out of no where, but instead will utilise AMD EyeFinity in conjunction with AMD Radeon graphics cards in their patented CrossFireX configuration.

I definitly think the future of vision is something to get excited about, and with the cost of 4K panels dropping in price fairly rapidly, 8K could be just around the corner, and with comments both from AMD and NVIDIA about how the technology is going to be implemented, it’s clear that both the red and green teams have it in their sights.

While I say that it’s just around the corner, if you look at the official Steam survey and what resolutions are used in the mainstream, you’ll find that a lot of people still game on Netbooks and the like, meaning that HD 1080p isn’t even at the top of the list and 4K being a small dot in comparison, so while it may just be around the corner for the future of ultra HD 8K resolutions, it may only be for the rich and famous at the present time.

Thank you TweakTown Via PCGamesN for providing us with this information.

5 Reasons Why You Need a Barcode Printer in Your Store

Barcode technology has changed the way in which we do business. Barcode printers and associated devices have enabled store owners and employees to create, read and process product labels in order to keep track of their inventory, monitor shipping and improve the overall quality of their client’s shopping experience. These days, one can find a plethora of barcode printers available on the market. Essentially, all these models serve the same practical purpose: they create barcode labels that are attached to the products commercialized by a certain retailer. If you are contemplating the idea of launching your own business, you might be wondering: why do I need a barcode printer in the first place? Here are a few motives that could justify this purchase.

  1. Barcode Printers Are Real Time-Savers.

Can you imagine how the retail industry would look like in the absence of barcode printing and scanning technology? Store owners would be faced with even more challenges. They would have to implement a different system to record orders, manage their inventory and monitor their profit. Fortunately, at this point, their work is less stressful and time-consuming, simply because they count on barcode printers. According to WhatIs, barcode printers are those handy gadgets producing various kinds of barcode labels that get attached to objects that are put up for sale. There are two types of technologies behind modern barcode printers: thermal transfer and direct thermal techniques. Both methods represent ways in which the ink is applied to labels. No matter what type of printing technology you use, your barcode printer will let you save a lot of time while handling merchandise.

  1. Barcode Printers Help Users Keep Track of Their Inventory.

Have you ever wondered how huge warehouses manage to keep track of every single package that enters or exits the facility? The answer is quite simple: the company is counting on a modern, extremely effective barcode system that turns inventory control into child’s play. Barcodes are used so that employees can track sales and restock the shelves based on solid data that leaves very little room for misguided decisions. Barcodes allow business owners to gain full control over their own company, identify top-selling items and the ones that are actually gathering dust on the store shelves, make smarter decisions and also prevent losses associated with human typing errors, misplaced items or theft. Barcode printers play a decisive part in this equation, ensuring superior, stress-free inventory control.

  1. Increased Speed.

Busy business owners have very little spare time on their hands and are often forced to multitask to achieve their daily goals. Speed and accuracy are of the essence. In this context, it becomes obvious why a barcode printer is considered a smart long-term investment. If you can print scannable product labels in record time, this means that you can organize your merchandise, keep an eye on your inventory, classify and analyze your sold items, come up with detailed reports based on solid numbers, monitor shipping and so much more. In short, barcode printers are a part of an enormous puzzle that guarantees the profitability and popularity of your business. Whether you are selling top-notch video surveillance equipment or children’s books, you will need a barcode printer in your store to simplify your selling and inventory management.

  1. Accuracy.

When you are running a small business on a tight budget, you can seldom afford to make mistakes out of negligence. Accuracy becomes one of your main concerns. A barcode printer enables users to eliminate their worries and achieve the highest level of data protection and integrity. You just can’t go wrong with barcode printers that have successfully replaced manual operations. According to B2B Information, barcodes are permanently included on your product labels. They can’t vanish into thin air when you need to read them. Barcodes get scanned by store cashiers to provide detailed info related to the price tag of the item that’s about to be sold. By eliminating costly human errors, barcode printers help users make certain processes more automatic and flow faster without any interruptions. Last but not least, certain types of barcode printers, like the one introduced by Shopify, enables employees to create barcode labels in different sizes, leaving the door open to amazing customization options.

  1. Shipment Tracking.

According to Chron Small Business, barcode systems also let companies of all sizes make the most of a straightforward, highly accessible shipment tracking solution. Warehouses scan product barcodes when they accept cargo; packages are then re-scanned when they are being delivered. Companies that have linked their Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to mobile apps can easily scan their shipments and find out whether or not one or more products are missing. Also, they can update delivery status and let their clients know when their packages are expected to depart, arrive or be delivered.

All in all, these are only 5 reasons proving that barcode printers are an essential component of a fully functional barcoding system that can take your business to a whole new level.

EVGA Respond to Possible Design Flaw on GTX 970 ACX

Recently, we covered a story on the new EVGA GeForce GTX 970 ACX having a possible design flaw or manufacturing defect where the GPU die only makes contact with 2 of the 3 heatpipes included in their cooler design. You can check out the full story here. Since then, we’ve contacted EVGA and asked for a response to give any substance to the claims and if the cooler design was intentional.

EVGA have given their response below:

“The way the EVGA GTX 970 ACX heat sink was designed is based on the GTX 970 wattage plus an additional 40% cooling headroom on top of it. There are 3 heat pipes on the heatsink – 2 x 8mm major heat pipes to distribute the majority of the heat from the GPU to the heatsink, and a 3rd 6mm heatpipe is used as a supplement to the design to reduce another 2-3 degrees Celsius. Also we would like to mention that the cooler passed NVIDIA Greenlight specifications.

Due to the GPU small die size, we intended for the GPU to contact two major heat pipes with direct touch to make the best heat dissipation without any other material in between.

We all know the Maxwell GPU is an extremely power efficient GPU, our SC cooler was overbuilt for it and allowed us to provide cards with boost clocks at over 1300MHz. EVGA also has an “FTW” version for those users who want even higher clocks.

Regarding fan noise, we understand that some have expressed concerns over the fan noise on the EVGA GTX 970 cards, this is not a fan noise issue but it is more of an aggressive fan curve set by the default BIOS. The fan curve can be easily adjusted in EVGA PrecisionX or any other overclocking software. Regardless, we have heard the concerns and will provide a BIOS update to reduce the fan noise during idle.

Our take on the above quote is a bit of a strange one, as EVGA claim that the heatsink is based on the GTX 970 wattage + 40% extra cooling performance to give more headroom giving us a total cooling power of 200W TDP, but as the reference GTX 970 uses essentially the same cooler as the Titan Black which has a 250W TDP, we can only assume that EVGA’s GTX 970 ACX could it fact be a worse performer than a reference model.

It is also worth noting upon the part of the quote which talks about the fan curve being so “aggressive” and the cooler being oversized for the GPU and TDP – If this is the case, why does the fan curve have to be so aggressive that the card has such a noisy idle of around 30dbA?

Even after the official response above, someone has brought it to our attention that the 3rd heatpipe isn’t even sealed off therefore having no functioning operation whatsoever as shown below.

So there you have it, but is this enough to satisfy you, or do you think EVGA are using this as an excuse for them clearly trying to cut costs by using the same cooler from other model cards? Only you can decide that, but as always, we invite you to let us know your thoughts in the comments below.

AMD Tease Something New?

This past week has certainly been a bit of a tough one for the red team as Nvidia took over the web with news, leaks, coverage and of course; the official unveiling of the GTX 900 series graphics cards. If you’re unsure on how they perform, it’s worth checking out our reviews here:

Even some heart-felt news took the web by storm when Nvidia gave a shiny new GTX 980 graphics card was given to an eager gamer who waited in line for the GAME24 event in Stockholm, Sweden as seen here.

While this is all great news and some amazing PR for the green team, AMD were brushed to the side while Nvidia held the spotlight, but it seems that AMD have something up their sleeve destined for 25th September 2014 as depicted in the above and below images.

After some investigations, it seems that only AMD India are the ones promoting it from first observation, but we can’t see this being something new for their market solely, so hopefully we see some more pushed to social media on a global level, but only time will tell.

What do you think AMD have up their sleeve? More APUs? Higher core CPUs or maybe the rumoured R9 390X graphics card that we’ve already reported on here and here? Who knows, but for now, we will just have to sit and wait.
