ASUS launches RoG Matrix R9 290X and GTX 780 Ti Platinum graphics cards

ASUS has just unveiled the new Republic of Gamers Matrix R9 290X and GTX 780 Ti Platinum graphics cards. What makes these cards special is the new revised cooler and PCBs. They also feature multiple BIOS and LN2 options for extreme over-clocking. For power, the cards require dual 8-pin PCIE with a TDP around 300 watts. As opposed to the usual grey/silver heatsinks, these new RoG cards feature an all black design that are cooled by two 92mm fans. A release date has not been set but we should expect the cards to be out by the time Computex 2014 rolls around.

Steam OS latest beta update includes AMD 14.1 Mantle API drivers

The latest update for the Steam OS beta now includes the AMD 14.1 Mantle Drivers. It will be interesting to see if whether the new API has an affect on gameplay or not. For those of you who have been using the SteamOS beta, what are your thoughts on the design and current implementation of the software?

Britain will be getting 5G internet

The DailyMail has reported that Britain will be getting the same 5G internet as Korea. With 5G internet, users can expect to download a film in less than a second (as long as your storage drive can write that fast). The deal was sealed at CeBit 2014 between Germany and Britain who both wanted to build their infrastructure so they didn't fall behind more advanced countries.
