Radeon HD 8570A 

Released March, 2013
  • 750 MHz
  • 1 GB DDR3

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.

It can handle most games at 1920x1080 using low detail settings, and more demanding games are still playable at 1680x1050 or 1280x720.

If it's for both the GPU and display, I would still wait.
If you can wait it out, I would really suggest you do as it's not only going to be great when it comes to new GPUs - but the older video cards should drop in price, too.
That’s simple, with the program running and the realtime graph disabled (it polls NvAPI constantly adding noise to the mass of API calls).
What it contains is a full account of the process of creating an overclocking tool beyond the constraints of common utilities such as MSI Afterburner.
Another bit of information from that AMD video is that Project Quantum is using what looks like an external power supply.
Interestingly AMD has switched out the power and USB 3.0 headers with right angle models and removed the blue ASRock heatsinks covering the VRMs and PCH.
AMD is using liquid cooling for the processor and graphics with the tubing running up the center column joining the two pieces together to a radiator or radiators.
From the other announcements around Fiji today, particularly the R9 Nano and R9 Fury X, this little machine is going to be a powerhouse with impressive power efficiency and performance per watt – especially for its size!
