AMD FX-8350 Review: Improved and Advanced

Processors AMD FX Vishera are considered to be 'heavy metal' in the AMD's inventory. They belong to the products of the second generation and employ an advanced Piledriver architecture. This architecture is intended primarily at managing multi-threading applications to provide for improved performance, if compared with CPUs of the first generation. In addition, FX Vishera chips feature reasonable correlation of power, facilities and price.

Platform and Architecture

CPU AMD FX-8350 is compatible with motherboards which contain AM3+ socket and high-performance logics AMD 990FX, AMD 970, and AMD 990X. It should be noted that boards with such chipsets are able to offer two additional PCI Express x16 sockets which are characterized by high speed index on integration of two video adapters.

Future Technologies are Right Here with Sharp PN-K321H Monitor

IGZO, an advanced technology employing semiconductors on Indium, Gallium, Zinc, and Oxide basis, is gradually penetrating PC monitors industry. It is called to ensure an ultra-high pixel density and, as a result, — an ultra-high sharpness. For sure, being an innovative approach in the development of monitors, end-products currently cost a pretty penny. Sharp is considered to be a pioneer in this endeavor, vigorously implementing IGZO panel in its latest displays.

Hence, Sharp has officially announced the launch of a new 32-inch monitor based on IGZO array and entitled PN-K321H. It features 35 mm case depth, 16:9 aspect ratio, and quite wide viewing angles. According to the manufacturer, the nominal resolution index is estimated as 3840x2160 pixels. The display is housed on a voluminous stand that enables its rotation at 90 degrees to achieve portrait mode arrangement.

Due to the implementation of IGZO panel with high electron mobility, Sharp has managed to attain the …
