Asus has launched its Formula Series of graphics cards. Two cards are available currently -- the Radeon 4770 (EAH4770 FORMULA/DI/512MD5) and Radeon 4890 (EAH4890 FORMULA/HTDI/1GD5). Asus says their Formula Series cards are inspired by Formula One racing cars. For those who want design exclusivity and the gaming enthusiast, the heatsink and cooling-fan are even aerodynamically styled to look like an F1 racing car.

The fan on these cards is claimed to be dust-proof, and better than those on reference-designed cards, thus improving the efficiency of the cooling by up to 33%, which translates into slightly better performance when the card is stressed by graphically intensive tasks. These cards are also claimed to be up to 12.4 decibels quieter than cards that use generically designed fan-sinks. This means a 30% reduction in noise levels which is good for those who want cooling without excessive fan rotation noise.

Asus offers a warranty of three years on these cards. The Radeon 4770 (EAH4770 FORMULA/DI/512MD5) will cost US$155, while the Radeon 4890 (EAH4890 FORMULA/HTDI/1GD5) will cost US$377.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
