Amazon unveiling its "Kindle" tablet on Sep 28th?!

By: Steve Dougherty | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: Sep 24, 2011 5:04 am

Word came out just yesterday that Amazon is preparing to hold a press event in New York City on the 28th of September for an unveiling of sorts.

 

The event will take place at 9am on said date, but it can only be speculated at this time as to what little trick, or tricks they have up their sleeve. The most likely purpose of the unveiling however is to officially introduce its long-awaited "Kindle" (name yet to be confirmed) Android running tablet.

There's been a number of rumours floating around about it for several months now, but we were recently given more of an idea on what to expect when TechCrunch said it managed to get hands on with it. It was said in this report that it will hit shelves in late November at $250US.

Deepcool's Dracula high-end VGA cooler ready to suck some heat

By: Steve Dougherty | More News: Cases, Cooling & PSU | Posted: Sep 23, 2011 3:36 pm

Deepcool has just announced a new high-end graphics card cooler under its "Gamer Storm" series, oddly dubbed the Dracula. While there doesn't appear to be any blood sucking attributes here, it looks like its taste for "heat" is its substitute, being able to handle the hungriest, hottest of GPUs out there.

 

deepcool_s_dracula_high_end_vga_cooler_ready_to_suck_some_heat_04

 

The Dracula uses a convex copper base with two large aluminum heatsinks and a mass of L-shaped heatpipes, no less than 12 of them in fact. It's possible to equip the Dracula with up to three 140mm sized fans, or four 120mm fans and all the mounting hardware is bundled to make this possible with ease.

 

The cooler supports NVIDIA GTX 580, GTX 570, GTX 560, GTX 480, GTX 470 and GTX 460 as well as AMD HD 6970, HD 6950, HD 6870, HD 6850, HD 5770, HD 5670, HD 4870 and HD 4850 video cards. A definitive shipping date or price tag has not yet been revealed.

Extended trailer for Resident Evil: Revelations online

By: Steve Dougherty | More News: Gaming | Posted: Sep 23, 2011 2:24 pm

A new extended trailer has gone up on YouTube from Capcom showing off its next upcoming Resident Evil title for the 3DS; Revelations.

 

extended_trailer_for_resident_evil_revelations_online_05

 

The trailer premiered at the 2011 Tokyo Game Show (TGS) where Resident Evil producer, Masachika Kawata announced that Revelations will be taking the series back to its survival horror roots and should be seen as a direct sequel to Resident Evil 5.

 

 

A little earlier in the year, Kawata said :-

 

Unlike Mercenaries, which is all about shooting action, Revelations is all about survival horror, the very genre Resident Evil established. We actually think of Revelations as a direct sequel to Resident Evil 5 and it will be full of new, innovative ideas and characters.

ASRock chime in on the whole MSI/GIGABYTE PCI-E 3.0 fight

By: Steve Dougherty | More News: Motherboards | Posted: Sep 23, 2011 12:09 pm

A couple weeks back we saw MSI make a bold claim that GIGABYTE's "PCI-Express 3.0" implementation on many of its motherboards is, to have put it bluntly, "Fake". MSI even went to the extent of creating a number of detailed slides to express their views on why GB is supposedly misleading its buyers with the "Ready for Native PCIe Gen.3" tag on as many as 40 of its motherboards.

 

Of course, it wasn't difficult to imagine GIGABYTE would respond at some point in relation to this claim, and sure enough, that occured just the other day.

 

With that being a somewhat wishy washy response in unsurprising defence, what I felt particularly news worthy was ASRock's comedic approach to the whole situation, with a new advertisement showing up via its Facebook page that puts its own range of PCI-E 3.0-ready boards up on a pedestal, not that they ever really came down off it seeing as they were one of the first to roll in PCI-E 3.0-ready boards anyway.

Aww... no love for the poor ole' Z68X-UD7 here.
