By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: Jun 9, 2015 1:35 am

We've had to pull our ASUS Radeon R9 390X post, as well as our PowerColor Radeon R9 390X post, so here's hoping that news and images on the XFX Radeon R9 390X Double Dissipation 8GB doesn't need to be pulled.

The XFX branded card is the latest in a slew of Radeon R9 390X video cards that has popped up, a rebranded R9 290X with 8GB of VRAM. It sports a slick looking cooler with unlocked voltage, and a diamond-shaped texture which looks great. There's 7 extended heat pipes which should keep the XFX Radeon R9 390X Double Dissipation 8GB nice and cool.

After our world exclusive news that AMD would be releasing its Fury X as the watercooled, HBM-based flagship GPU, we began hearing about Fury Nano. We didn't want to post the news and possibly have it backfire on our source, so we waited on someone else to hear about it - and here we are.

Right now it's all up in the air, but we do know there will be three different Fury cards, followed by a rebrand that will arrive as the Radeon R9 300 series.

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: Jun 9, 2015 12:03 am

Legendary Writer Director James Cameron concieved and launched the 'Terminator' franchise with the 1984 original, before returning with 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day' in 1991 but had nothing to do with 'Terminator 3' or 'Terminator: Salvation', the latter of which even Schwarzenegger says "sucked". But in a new promotional video for the latest film in the franchise "Terminator: Genisys", Cameron himself sits down to publicly back the film even describing it as the real "Terminator 3".

 

 

Describing the film as "I feel like the franchise has been reinvigorated... this is a renaissance", Cameron goes further to sell a film he has no stake in by saying "If you love the Terminator movies, you're gonna love this movie". High praise indeed.

 

'Terminator Genisys' kicks off a new trilogy of films and hits screens worldwide on July 1st and for the first time in 3D, helmed by 'Thor: The Dark World' director Alan Taylor.

President Obama: Cybersecurity vulnerabilities will accelerate

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Hacking & Security | Posted: Jun 8, 2015 10:37 pm

Cybersecurity issues are getting worse, President Barack Obama admitted recently, as the United States remains a lucrative target of foreign cybercriminals. Obama wants Congress to pass new cybersecurity legislation to help address mounting digital threats.

"We have known for a long time that there are significant vulnerabilities, and that these vulnerabilities are going to accelerate as time goes by, both in systems within government and within the private sector," Pres. Obama said during a Group of Seven summit.

 

It's a stark realization that the US government has been aware of cybersecurity issues, but favored the need on bulk surveillance activities. If nothing else, it looks like some private sector security firms and defense contractors will make a fortune helping the government upgrade.

Dallas Cowboys testing virtual reality training for quarterbacks

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Wearable Computing | Posted: Jun 8, 2015 9:18 pm

The Dallas Cowboys have signed a two-year contract with STRIVR Labs, bringing virtual reality to the team's quarterbacks.

Using a VR headset and software, quarterbacks will be able to see live-action 3D video replays of each play - from their own perspective - and can look in any direction as they analyze their decision making. In an ideal scenario, this will give Tony Romo and the team's backup quarterbacks the chance to learn and adapt without actually being on the field.

 

STRIVR Labs has reportedly reached agreements with several major NCAA football teams to help them as well - as VR finds a realistic and functional use in sports. Looking ahead, its possible STRIVR Labs will sign with other teams interested in embracing VR technology.
