Sapphire releases a 6GB Radeon HD 7970 TOXIC
Personally I fail to see why you would need 6GB of graphics memory being tied to one GPU, the regular 3GB already should be aby far sufficient enough. That didn't stop Sapphire to release a 7970 6GB TOXIC.
The card boasts 6GB of the latest GDDR5 memory, a powerful 10-phase power supply known as the Lethal Power.
By default, the HD 7970 6GB TOXIC Edition runs at 1050 MHz and with PowerTune Dynamic Boosts rises to 1100 MHz on the engine with the memory clock at 6000 MHz effective. By pressing the new SAPPHIRE exclusive Lethal Boost Button, the beast is unleashed, boosting the core clock speed to 1100 MHz with PowerTune Dynamic Boost to an industry first of 1200 MHz on the engine while the memory is further overclocked to 6400 MHz effective.

NVIDIA Forum Hack exposed
Looks like the guys that hacked the NVIDIA forums posted a dump of the database on pastebin. You can read that here. Not only the forums are compromized, shop.nvidia.com apparantly as well.
The group behind the hack is Apollo project:
But let's put this in perspective, this is only a forum hack. I am actually suprised nVidia decided to even disclose that they'd been hacked quite a few weeks ago.
It did take them a while though. We aren't acting extremely maliciously, we've used this database to target disgusting corporations who deserve to be brought to justice.. and we are getting there, slowly but surely.
I know one day it will all change, but for change to happen.. You have to make the change. I was always raised to believe that the only person anyone can change is themselves, but I think that's absolute bullshit, and you should to. I guess you should consider this a call to arms. We are riding as one now. I don't have any other name, I don't want one, and neither should you. I don't have all the answers, but if you take one thing from me.. Wake the fuck up and start looking at things.
Oh, and nVidia forgot to tell you that shop.nvidia.com has also been compromised. nVidia minimizing the affect that the hack will have on its stock price? SHORT SELL, SHORT SELL.
Next-gen Intel Atom delayed to end of 2013
Intel's latest roadmaps show that the next-gen Valleyview Atom SoC and the corresponding BayTrail platform are delayed until the end of 2013, and won't see widespread availability in products until 2014.
On paper, the whole platform looks promising. We have Bay Trail-T and Valleyview-T for mobile phones (until then, you're stuck with Oak Trail-based Atom Z6xx processors) which will support LPDDR3 memory from Day 1. Valleyview-T will be available in quad-core format as well, which means that by Q4 2013 both Qualcomm and TI need to have their processors candy-dandy, given the lead from HiSilicon, NVIDIA and Samsung.
The only problem is that taking a look at competitor's roadmaps, they seem to be more than ready for continuously-delayed "Intel chips that will change the world". Ultimately, Intel plans to utilize its 22nm fabs to the full extent, with the future migration to 14nm, but the mobile platform is looking to lag one process node behind the traditional desktop/notebook/server processors. The official line is that the company still prepares 22nm mobile node, but that node slipped deep into the 2013 and as we all know, you can buy 22nm processors from Intel
Prolimatech blue version of Megahalems Rev. B
Prolimatech has introduced a blue edition of its Megahalems Rev. B CPU cooler. The cooler has the same specifications as the original model, but will likely cost a little bit more than the original's $70 price tag.
As another site mentioned it is alomost the same color as Gigabyte uses on its motherboards. Most of the cooler's 88 stainless steel fins are blue, with the top fins on each of the two stacks retaining a chrome finish. The six 6 mm-thick heat pipes passing through them are made of nickel-plated copper, while most metal parts of the retention modules are colored black.
GeForce GTX 660 Ti expected by mid-August
We wrote about this before, but it seems to be a bit more substanciated right now. As it seems NVIDIA plans to introduce its GeForce GTX 660 Ti graphics card in the third week of August, which is between August 13th and 19th.
This new card is expected to cost $229, it reportedly has 1152 or 1344 CUDA cores, 192-bit memory bus and 1.5GB of GDDR5 memory. The PCB will be pretty short and the card will require just a single 6-pin power connector.
