Hardware Roundup: Wednesday Edition
We have a little bit of everything for you in the middle of the week, including some reviews on AMD's newly released Richland APUs (OCC review on the A10-6800K and A10-6700 here). The A10-6800K is the new flagship part and gets its share of the reviews, as does the A10-6700, but even the low end A4-4000 gets in on the action. On the Intel side we have a look at the MSI Z87 MPower motherboard for the new Intel Haswell processorsThere's a review on a 2GB AMD HD 7790 from Gigabyte if you need a new video card instead of an APU. We also have another look at the Cooler Master Notepal U2 Plus cooling pad so your laptop doesn't melt during an intense gaming session. Desktop cooling is covered with a review on the AeroCool Touch-2100 fan controller, complete with a multi-colored display and five channels. If you want a bit of a history lesson, well how about a look at the history of the hard drive from its beginning way back in 1953 to today.
