[citation][nom]greghome[/nom]I remember joking about the A75 chipset and SLI but seriously?SLI on an AMD APU system ?What's the point of buying a CPU with Radeon Graphics just to pair it up with 2* Geforce in SLI ?[/citation]
dont have all the money right now, but still want to play SOME games, than once you get the money, upgrade the gpu... serously, even the bad amd cpus can play anything at decent frame rates, and with the whole taking things away from the cpu to run on the gpu, many never need a high power cpu again soon.
[citation][nom]enewmen[/nom]FINALLY a Thunderbolt external graphics card solution. I hope to read more about this later.[/citation]
It was in CES in Jan. I heard rumor it will be available in April for around $200-300. April come and gone and I still see no GUS II. I just hope they won't kill the project and their delay is just to do with the lack of thunderbolt equipped laptop on the market now. Otherwise, there will only be the Sonnet expansion chassis which is about 3x as much.
Nice! That external GPU for Thuderbolt laptops is particularly interesting, putting that Thuderbolt port to good use, if your laptop has one. I'd think it would probably have support for Mac, considering how the recent MacBooks have Thuderbolt ports.
I finally gave MSI a try with their 7950 card. It overclocks like crazy and has very good cooling so I can keep it up with the 7970's. Like the overclocking software and the fan control graph setup so I can fine tune the sucker to keep it at a very dull whisper or a bit of a roar (really not that bad) if the temp gets up to where it needs the extra airflow. This is a good video card.
