ID:	597316In a surprise move AMD have given us a great early Christmas present with the announcement of their next generation graphics card, the long awaited HD7970. It's based on entirely new architecture rather than revision and the first fully featured review is already up thanks to AnandTech, so head on over to have a read of it now.

      Massively disappointing. It only marginally steals the single-GPU crown, which considering this is brand new architecture seems laughable.

      About as laughable as AMD's new desktop processors.

      It's actually quite impressive from my point of view, its definately a step forward for ATI, its got a half decent price, i'd still rather sli or crossfire two cards.

      I think though, the biggest thing here is while they are going for performance, next gen Nvidia card's are aiming for lower power consumption.

    Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was just updated again, making a number of changes and additions to the game. The default map has been switched from Inferno to Train, which appears to be a far better recreation than Inferno, apart from the fog issue. There are also a bunch of new weapons: the Para, the TEC-9 Pistol, the SG 552 (pictured), and the AUG....

    I've been shooting some face in the CS:GO beta for the first time this evening, and there's quite a bit to talk about. I should preface this impressions article with the note that while I used to play at a national level, it has been years since I've delved into any CS in any serious capacity. I'm sure there will be a number of current day elitists out there who disagree with my opinions, but I'm not claiming this as gospel, so append as much or as little weight to these opinions as you care to....
