AMD Gaming on a Budget

This month, we build an affordable AMD-based gaming rig to find out just how good (or bad) a CPU/GPU combo can be

LENGTH OF Time: 1-3 HOURS LEVEL OF DIFFICULTY: EASY

THE MISSION. We’ve put together some spendy systems recently. Hey, there’s a reason this mag is called Maximum PC. However, it’s caused a few readers to wonder if we drive gold-plated Humvees to work. As if! We have chauffeurs for that kind of thing. The fact is, we like the challenge of building to a rig’s optimum potential, at any price. So this month, we turn the tables and

Feint GLONASS

Everyone is laughing at "the first Russian iPhone" — MTS 945 smartphone (aka ZTE 945). This case shows a lack of strategic thinking in the majority of Internet plankton, and the presence thereof in our government. So now we can speak with confidence — the government has committed a brilliant strategic feint ears, to promote GLONASS to the consumer market. And the trick was completely successful.

I already wrote that support for GLONASS is already present in a variety of devices manufacturers. Just confirmed it and the company Qualcomm.

The government recognized that an obstacle to the promotion

HSCI experts have reported on the DNA chip Etnogen

In June 2013 Human Stem Cell Institute (JSC "HSCI) took part in the European Conference of Human Genetics (European Human Genetics Conference-2013). HSCI experts presented to the participants of the conference report "Predictive genetic testing using DNA microarray technology — a promising preventive approach to medical practice", which described the developed in HSCI DNA chip "Etnogen" for the diagnosis of hereditary diseases, the press service of the HSCI.

Chip "Etnogen" is fundamentally different from those already on the market diagnostic systems in that it focuses on identifying genetic diseases specific to the peoples living on the

More about space chips from Micron and Elvis

The Russian company "Micron" (included in industry holding RTI) has developed a chip that will ensure trouble-free operation in space for 10-15 years.

On a single silicon wafer is placed more than a dozen chips, and they are all different, but equally intended as a lofty goal. They will install on computers spacecraft.

According to Nikolai Shelepina, Deputy Director General for Research of "Mikron", the new development will help companies avoid such partial failures of our spacecraft, most of which have foreign components that are not intended for use in space.

Micron has developed a chip space

Computer equipment does not always meet the space requirements. Often in the course are integrated circuits that are not intended for use in orbit, which provokes the fall of satellites. The Russian company "Micron" has developed chips that will ensure trouble-free operation in space for 10-15 years.

On a single silicon wafer is placed more than a dozen chips. They are all different, but equally intended as a lofty goal. They will install on computers spacecraft.

"You’ve heard of the periodic dips of our satellites. Specifically, this is connected with the foreign component basis, not
