AMD’s next-generation A-Series processors, code-named Trinity, are the chip manufacturer’s answer to Intel’s new Ivy Bridge processors.
You're probably wondering what's better? What is Trinity, what is Ivy bridge? What should I get or upgrade? and so on so forth. I hope this article answers all your questions because I will provide insight of these two processors, and give you a closer look to future technology. However, just be aware, if these questions haven't been brought out, it is because I want YOU, the reader, to answer the question for yourself because most of the questions usually are rhetorical.
Although before I go on with the future, perhaps we should go back to the past of the microprocessor era (Hint: Moore's law- (The law is named after

Alright, ‘competitive play’ is sort of a broad term. In a shorter term, I mean generally moba games (like LoL/Dota/HoN) and shooter games. I find a lot of times when I play with random people they tend not to hear pings, things said in voice chat, ect due to having music on while they’re playing.
Now I don’t mostly since I find it to be more distracting than anything else. I can do it, but while in a game I am busy trying to listen to my team or the sounds of enemies nearby, with music playing, I can’t really do that. This is especially true since I am into metal music, and that is a bit more distracting than listening to classic. Yea, I could turn the volume down, but then I can’t hear the music! Alright, that did sound lame, but really I prefer having my headphones on and only listening to the game and nothing else.
So what about you all, do you tend to listen to music while playing? If so, how do you concentrate on the game, really? Do you ju

Gaming. Probably man's greatest invention. Gaming captivates so many people due to its ability to give the player a new body and a new world to explore. It is truely something enjoyed by its currently estimated 69% of the world's population. The gaming industry has taken off from its starting roots in 1958 with "Tennis for Two" (not Pong). Gaming may seem amazing now, but in the near future, our prized games and system of today will be like "Tennis for Two".
Tennis for Two recreated for its 50th anniversary.
Gaming in the not-too-distant past. Super Nintendo was released in America in 1991. This 16-bit system layed the foundation for great gaming with its focus on gameplay over graphics. Many great games were made for the SNES to make Nintendo the leading game company at that time. Following the sucess of the SNES, Nintedo released the Nintendo 64 gaming system. This badboy brought something new to the table, good (at that time) 3D graphics and gameplay(even though PlayStation by Sony did come out with 3D graphics, their 32-bit CPU were nothing compared to the 64-bit CPU of the N64). Many great games such as SuperMario 64 and The Legend

Alright we all know of those omg! or WTF! moments that happen during a game. Like the WTF! moment in legend of zelda. Where you forget to get the long shot and not being able to get through the water temple but your stuck so you have to reset the whole game! or the moment in mario bros 3 where your at the last boss but you get hit by one little stupid boomerang. Well these are some top 10 wtf/omg/oh yeah moments of gaming.
10. WTF MOMENT! (Super Contra 3 snes - Over head stages!)
Alright so we all remember this game right?
Well did you ever beat the first stage and go, "Damn! That was really hard!?" Well if you did then you know what comes next. Yes the over head stage on a highway. No one understood why this was in the game but no one saw the point considering it was hard as hell. Nothing was fun about that it was just plain hell and hard! To make it worse theres more then one time!
9. WTF/OMG MOMENT! ( Megaman games in general)
Dont get it wrong you know who this cool blue guy is and no he is not sonic!
Megaman is his name and you can not be a true gamer with out playing at least one of his games let alone knowing them. So this is not only a wtf mo

WASD VS "POINT" and "CLICK"
By Miles Away
I see a lot of newer games remaking the old school MMO point and click concept. Such as Yulgang, Emil Chronicle, and Dragon Oath and, spending a couple weeks playing them, (Rekindling the nuances of point and click MMOS and ultimately lost in my own nostalgia of Diablo's glory days) ive realised how short the life of MMORPGS has been. It was not until recently that we've started to utilize the WASD Controls compared to the simplified arrow keys. There are still some good aspects regarding these, more traditional, sub genres, but questions arise. Are point and click MMORPGS truly outdated? Are they only a throw-back fad to us old school gamers? Or is there enough potential left in them to stand against the evolution of rpgs?
Ever since WASD was designated the ideal way to play computer MMOS (CSS. WOW) we've all managed to step up and improve our gaming ability. Were, faster, stronger and better. Most of us who have used the forward key have eventually realised how smooth W is. Lets Call this "natural progression" We have reinvented how to use ou

A lot of people have asked me, “Why play a MMO when you don’t want to play with other people?” and though I haven’t really come with a good answer for that, I believe that I’m starting to understand my picky preference. The problem I find with a lot of MMORPG’s is that the balance for a fun, visually entertaining game that can run well while soloing isn’t what I look for in a game. First and foremost, I honestly believe that even a crappy ga

Starting the New Year in Style
Everyone has makes ridiculous new year resolutions that they promise that they are going to keep (starting tomorrow of course), but can you think of any you've kept in all your years of making them? I bet a large sum of Shadowbane gold that you can count them off on one hand, if any. Well how about setting yourself a new years resolution that's sweet and simple, that's highly beneficial, and that you'll actually keep. No it's not "I'll spend more time playing X game" or anything trivial like that - no, no, no. Let us all make a New Years Resolution to keeping our computers healthy! Well, after all, without them you guys wouldn't be here - and a healthy computer is a fast running, stable computer.
There is always the chance that this'll be like every other resolution you've ever made and fall by the wayside, so let's at least start the year with a clean and happy PC.
Deleting the Crap
This is something we just don't do, and that our computer is horrible doing itself. Let's start by going into Windows control panel and double-clicking "Add or Remove Programs". Once that has loaded search through the list for those programs yo
