Club 3D unveils overclocked Radeon HD 6850 video card

For many years there were no factory overclocked video cards from ATI partners. If you wanted an ATI card with more performance, you had to do the overclocking yourself.

ASUS EAH6850/EAH6870 video cards overclock and over-cool AMD’s new Radeons

AMD's latest Radeon HD 6870 and 6850 GPUs are official, and ASUS has wasted no time slapping them into a couple of new video cards.  However, they've also taken a few liberties and made some tweaks of their own; the ASUS EAH6850 DirectCU/2DIS/1GD5 and EAH6870/2DI2S/1GD5 cards are each overclocked out of the box, to 790MHz and 913MHz respectively, and they each get the company's Voltage Tweak tech which promises up to 50-percent performance boost over the AMD reference design.

AMD’s Radeon HD 6700 Series Specs Leak Into the Wild, Offer Twice the Power

On a Chinese-based website called Chiphell, details on AMD's upcoming Radeon HD 6700 Series graphics cards broke cover, offering up pretty much every bit of detail that people would be interested in, all in an organized fashion.

AMD Retiring ATI Brand

AMD Retiring ATI Brand

Today AMD announced that they are retiring the ATI brand entirely from their branding and marketing. This is a move that I have been expecting for some time now since it has been one of the more prominent discussions at the last few AMD Analyst Summits I have attended.

It has become blatantly clear over the past few years that the “speeds and feeds” marketing by manufacturers of personal computers was becoming less relevant to the decision making process of mainstream consumers. This is why both AMD and Intel are taking very different approaches with their partners on how to position and market to consumers.

Lenovo IdeaPad Y460 Review

It's not enough for a 14-inch notebook to deliver decent runtimes, a little processor grunt and pleasing looks any more; now we expect graphical excellence too. In response, Lenovo have outfitted their IdeaPad Y460 with a dedicated ATI Radeon GPU, and they've even thought to put a switch on the front which allows you to turn it off when you're feeling more spreadsheet than gaming minded. Two birds with one stone, or just a lame duck? Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.

Lenovo IdeaCentre A700 and B305 all-in-ones get optional touchscreens

Lenovo's IdeaCentre all-in-one range has been given a polish, with the IdeaCentre A700 getting an injection of Intel's Core 2010 processors (albeit from the laptop rather than the desktop range) and the IdeaCentre B305 raiding AMD's line-up instead, with a choice of Athlon II X4 CPUs.  Each has optional touch-sensitivity, with the A700 using Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) technology more commonly found in medical settings.  The A700 has a 23-inch Full HD widescreen display, while the B305 is a little smaller at 21.5-inches though still packs Full HD resolution.
