AMD’s new Radeon R9 285 increases power, drops wattage

amd r9 285 AMD on Saturday released its new GeForce killer, the R9 285. It may sound like yet another graphics card in the rebadged world of the R-line, but it comes with some proper upgrades. The company couldn't help having a punny dig at Nvidia either, noting that "the competition is green with envy." Well played, AMD. It replaces the R9 280, which was a fairly good card in its own right, but was ridiculously power hungry. The R9 285 uses 60w less at ...

Here’s ‘Game of Thrones’ reimagined as an 8-bit Nintendo game

GoT lead If I was an unoriginal writer, I'd say "nothing puts the 'Game' in Game of Thrones like these gifs," but instead, I'm saying how incredibly faithful these ten animated 8-bit gifs are. Imgur user GnarW0lves has created ten stunning animated shorts and judging by her twitter profile, fantasy worlds are her unmitigated passion. The graphics have a rather Shovel Knight look to them and if there's any genius developer out there who wants to create a retro Game of Thrones game with GnarW0lves ...

Asus Zenfone 4 review: the best $100 Android smartphone yet

SONY DSC ASUS, apart from making the low-cost Nexus 7 tablets for Google, has mostly focused on high-end devices.

New, sexy Bloodborne concept pictures reveals terrifying ‘yawning house’ enemy

Bloodborne prime Bloodborne is From Software's first game for PS4, and it looks like a right cracker. There's been a snippet of gameplay here and there, and today Sony Computer Entertainment Japan and Asia (via Dualshockers) have released a bunch of hand-drawn concept art pieces. These images show off the weapons, locations and one of the presumed bosses of Bloodborne, but one picture truly strikes fear into my heart and knowing From Software, the enemy in this image will be terrifying as hell. I ...

NOOK at me: Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 turns into latest Barnes & Noble tablet

Samsung-Galaxy-Tab®-4-NOOK®-White I'm not completely sure if I understand the purpose of reading-specific tablets (versus e-paper alternatives) like the NOOK. Samsung has teamed up with Barnes & Noble, the largest bookseller in the US, to launch its latest device. But the problem is, it's not an e-reader. It's a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 with NOOK apps installed. Those imagining a brand new machine, with NOOK labels imprinted everywhere will be disappointed, in fact it's nothing new at all. Painting a pony black does ...


These are the 11 most challenging boss battles of all time

bossbattles I've been gaming since before I could read, and if I could have played Game Boy as a Foetus (Womb Raider?), I would have. With gaming, it's the accomplishments that please the most, and no accomplishment is as great as beating a really tough boss. As such, I've collected a list of the most challenging boss battles yet. No boss that's unfair or cheap, such as Shao Kahn from Mortal Kombat 9, is included on this list. Only the greats. Dark ...

Savvy Imgur user builds working 1KB hard drive inside ‘vanilla’ Minecraft

MC HD 7 Imgur user smellystring has officially changed my view of Minecraft --  and he'll change yours as well. Below is a fully functional 1KB hard drive, created within Minecraft and it's incredible. Smellystring walks us through the process which includes binary blocks, pistons, a data collection room, indicator lights and "bit" emulators. Watch and learn. For references sakes, and to appreciate the size of the Minecraft hard drive, 1000KB equals 1MB, therefore 1000000KB is 1GB. "Redstone signals can pass through solid (opaque) blocks, but ...
