PlayStation 4 Ditching The Cell Processor for AMD

The rumors are mounting that the PlayStation 4 will ditch its cell processor in favor of an AMD solution. The funny thing is, we've been saying this since last July.

The PlayStation 4 will not use Sony's Cell processor nor any possible successor to the vaunted chipset that was introduced to the world through the PlayStation 3, gaming industry sources tell Kotaku.

SilenX EFZ-120HA5 Heatsink

The fellas at Ninjalane have published their review of the SilenX EFZ-120HA5 heatsink today. It seems like the reviewer had some mixed feelings about this HSF, hit the link to read the full review.

Even though we try to concentrate on enthusiast level cooling solutions we are often called on to look at more mainstream heatsinks to see just how good they really are. In the case of the SilenX EFZ-120HA5 we are pleasantly surprised to see some good C/W numbers from a heatsink that would normally get overlooked by the community.

Blizzard Entertainment Laying Off 600 Employees

Blizzard has just announced that it will be laying off 600 employees. The company is reassuring players that the WoW team was unaffected by this move but is that really what matters when 600 people are without a jobs now? frown

As Blizzard and the industry have evolved we’ve also had to make some difficult decisions in order to address the changing needs of our company. Knowing that, it still does not make letting go of some of our team members any easier. We’re grateful to have had the opportunity to work with the people impacted by today’s announcement, we’re proud of the contributions they made here at Blizzard, and we wish them well as they move forward.
