MSI Windows 7 tablet, AMD HD 6990, Kingmax 4GB DRAM module

MSI has launched its Windpad 100W Windows 7 tablet in the UK, according to Device Magazine. It features a 10.1-inch touchscreen, a 1.6GHz Atom Z530 single-core processor, 2GB of DDR2 RAM, 32GB SSD storage, an SD card reader, USB 2.0 slots, mini HDMI port, and a battery life of over six hours. It has a price tag of around $650.

Tweaktown brings news of AMD’s upcoming Radeon HD 6990, a dual-Cayman graphics card that is rumoured to have 3072 stream processors and 4GB of GDDR5 memory over two 256-bit memory interfaces. It is also expected to have a dual-vapour chamber design, dual Crossfire connectors, a dual-slot cooler, and four mini-DisplayPort outputs. If the rumours are true it’s promising to be a beast of a card.

The Lian Li PC-X2000F chassis was tested out by PureOC, which labelled it as a “top-notch premium case”. The 140mm fans run quietly at different speeds and well-positioned. Custom water cooling is available through a radiator installation at a the front. The case also looks good, with a minimalist design. However, the lack of SSD mounting, limited air flow when using all of the hot swap bays, difficulty adding an optical drive, and overall price are a few of its drawbacks.

HardwareHeaven reviewed the PowerColor Radeon HD 6950 PCS++ graphics card, which earned a rating of 10 out of 10, along with a Gold, Performance and Value award, thanks to its increased performance over the standard model and its very reasonable price. Flawless performance while running 3D, high-definition movies, and top-end games sealed the deal.

Kingmax has launched a 4GB 2,400MHz DRAM module, according to HardwareBistro. It is aimed at overclocking enthusiasts and supports the Intel P55 chipset. It comes with nano thermal dissipation technology and 10 percent greater thermal performance over conventional heat sink options. It also features a lifeitme warranty.
