The ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q 27-in WQHD display with a 144 Hz refresh rate is truly an awesome monitor.

With the Xbox One now being based on an x86 architecture, and the operating system sounding suspiciously similar to Windows 8, it should be very easy to port games to Windows 8.1.

In The News From around the web

Overall, we continue to see awesome performance on both setups, with solid FPS at this massive 4K resolution.
Not only do we see just a single FPS between two setups, but we just see numbers that are just way too low, even in Quad SLI.

NVIDIA FY 2015 Q2 Financial Results

by Brett Howse |
In millions except EPS Q2'2015 Q1'2015 Q2'2014 Q/Q Y/Y Revenue $1103 $1103 $977 0% +13% Gross Margin 56.4% 55.1% 56.3% +1.3% +0.1% Operating Expenses $411 $411 $401 0% +2% Net Income $173 $166 $133 +4% +30% EPS $0.30 $0.29 $0.23 +3% +30% The GPU business is the primary source of revenue for NVIDIA, and includes GeForce for desktops and notebook PCs, Quadro for workstations, Tesla for high performance computing, and GRID for cloud-enabled graphic solutions.
They are also seeing growth in the Tesla datacenter business.
Slow rotations and pans didn’t cause any of the typical “crawling” effect on the screen, and targeting on enemies, even at low frame rates, was easy to do.
Any movement that was tracking on the screen would suddenly appear to stop – and then would quickly “jump” to the next location faster than your mind thought it should.
The flagship is the A10 PRO-7850B where the ‘B’ stands for Business Class.
All these Kaveri APUs consumed only 65W TDP with the exception of the flagship which consumed 95W.
