Futuristic Racing Game H-Craft Championship Gone Freeware

The about 7 years old futuristic racing game H-Craft Championship has recently become a Freeware game. You are racing not with wheeled cars, instead of, you have some fancy hover crafts. But be aware, the control is a little tricky and yes, you can fall off from the tracks, which are floating free in the sky.

The available versions has become something outdated, but the developers has promised to look over some bugs and will release an patch in the coming month.

    AMD's 5 GHz Turbo Top Processor FX 9590 Got An Unusual Price Cut

    AMD had introduced it's new top desktop processor FX 9590 just a few months ago and over the past weeks, it got a price adjustment. But it was not a price cut you would expect regularly, the price got trimmed from whooping 730 £ down to only about 240 £. Yes, that is less than half after just a few months!

    AMD has not a single desktop processor above 300 £ now, while Intel is still able to sell several models above 500 £ and cashing in the big profits.

    The FX 9590 processor is based on the Piledriver architecture, featuring a 4.7 GHz base clock and 5.0 GHz turbo frequency with unlocked multipliers, 8 processor core modules, 1 MiB level 2 cache per module and 8 MiB shared level 3 cache, produced in a 32 nm SOI process. It does fit into the old AM3+ socket, but the mainboard needs to support it's power hungry 220 watt TDP.

    AMD had not stated clearly how long they will continue the FX serie and the availability of the FX 9590 is already very limited with just a few dealers have it in stock, like amazon.co.uk (AMD FX-9590 Black Edition Octa Core CPU Socket (AM3+, 4.7GHz, 16MB, 220W, FD9590FHHKWOF, Turbo Core 3.0 Technology)) or novatech.co.uk.
