AMD Radeon RX 480 Graphics Card Review

The crew over at TechARP has posted a review of the AMD Radeon RX 480 graphics card today. For comparison purposes, you can see our evaluation here.

The AMD Radeon RX 480 is no beauty, with its slab-sided cooler. Neither is it the fastest kid on the block. But if you are a gamer on a budget, you are going to thank AMD for creating the Radeon RX 480. Yes, while AMD may tout 1440p gaming as the Radeon RX 480’s sweet spot, our preliminary results show that it is best used for 1080p gaming. You can use it for 1440p gaming if you are not fussy about achieving 60 fps.


U.S. Opens Investigation Into Fatal Tesla Crash

It was only a matter of time before something like this happened. Even though you should know better than to use the beta “autopilot” feature on the Tesla, someone didn’t listen and now they are dead and the safety of the vehicles is being called into question.

The agency said the crash came in a 2015 Model S operating with automated driving systems engaged, and “calls for an examination of the design and performance of any driving aids in use at the time of the crash.” It is the first step before the agency could seek to order a recall if it believed the vehicles were unsafe.
