It's a busy day on the review front and this bodes well if you're an AMD fan. First off we have reviews on the ECS A785GM-AD3 motherboard and the AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE CPU. AMD has also announced a new chipset, the 890GX, and we have a entire separate roundup devoted to the new release along with reviews on 890GX boards from ASUS and Gigabyte. NVIDIA has also launched the next generation ION GPU that includes its Optimus technology which allows a system to power down the GPU when not needed to save battery life. Today's roundup also includes a pair of reviews on solid state drives from OCZ and more, so be sure to check out all of the reviews using the links below.
