The TP-Link Archer delivers wireless dual band AC via USB or PCI-E with blistering speeds of up to 1750Mbps (1300+450).

Haswell-E, X99 Intel Chipsets and DDR4 Memory, What We Know So Far.

Expected to launch and some point in September the X99 Haswell-E chipset is the first consumer motherboard series to support DDR4 memory. Here at Evatech we are getting a lot of questions from customers asking if they should bother waiting for this or not so we thought we would take the time to address it publicly online.

From what we know so far, there will be 3 new CPU sku’s, the 5820K, 5930K and 5960X. At this point the price points are still just rumors but according to Niels Broekhuijsen over at Tomshardware we expect them to start at around the $450 AUD mark and go all the way up to $1100 for the top of the line model.
