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

In The News From around the web

My current system is a 2500k and GTX 670, so the upgrade bug is biting hard, but i can also wait, as the Rift and the HTC Vibe wont really be widely available until the Summer.
On the other hand, if you needed to (or anyone else reading this) buy something now, then the price drop on the R9 Nano has been a great thing, and good timing.

TSMC Plans 10nm, 7nm, and "Very Steep" Ramping of 16nm.

Getting smaller features allows a chip designer to create products that are faster, cheaper, and consume less power.
Texas Instruments, on the other hand, decided that they would continue manufacturing but get out of the chip design business.
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!
