AsRock and BMW debuts M8 – The Unstoppable Mini-ATX Masterpiece

by Syed Muhammad Usman Pirzada |

Wow, #AsRock and #BMW DesignWorks USA’s #M8 Gaming Machine is a beauty.
The A Command is basically an OLED Display with a control knob that has multiple uses, ranging from volume control to system information and display.
Apple has determined that some AMD Radeon HD 6970M video cards used in 27-inch iMac computers with 3.1GHz quad-core Intel Core i5 or 3.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processors may fail, causing the computer’s display to appear distorted, white or blue with vertical lines, or to turn black.
In a somewhat baffling piece of news this weekend, word comes that Apple has initiated an internal replacement program for the video cards on some of their mid-2011 27” iMacs.
We don't have die sizes, transistor counts or TDPs until further notice.
Though the specifications are nearly equivalent to the build of the desktop Radeon HD 7770 part it is worth mentioning that the theoretical peak performance of that GPU is 1.28 TFLOPs; nearly 30% higher than the 8800M.
