Hardware Roundup: Wednesday Edition

There's a lot to cover today, so let's dive right in. We have two different looks at AMD's new heterogeneous Uniform Memory Access (hUMA), which is a key component in Kaveri, the successor to the Trinity APUs. The idea behind hUMA is to allow the CPU and GPU to share memory resources to help things move along even faster than they do already. Check out the links to see just how it performs. On a different front, there's a new Frame Rating article on how different high end GPUs handle the massive 4K resolution, as well as a be quiet! CPU cooler. We also have a 4GB flash drive from takeMS, a speaker system from Ineo, and even a wireless storage drive from ADATA.
