On Location At AMD's 2012 ExtravaLANza Event
By , Jane McEntegart
Welcome To AMD's Campus In Markham, Ontario

Located just north of Toronto, AMD keeps the fire lit in its campus' main atrium. On October 20 and 21, the company hosted ExtravaLANza, a LAN party for enthusiasts and an open exhibition area where partners like Ubisoft, Asus, MSI, PowerColor, Diamond, Sapphire, XFX, Gigabyte, Newegg Canada, NCIX, Cooler Master, NEC and SilverStone all had things on display.

    GX60 has an A10-4600M and a 7970M? That's going to be an interesting combo. :)

    with the 7970m being the cheaper high end gpu of the two with power similar to a desktop maybe like 660, along with a a10-4600m which is probably similar to a dual core i-series but probably cheaper would probably make it a pretty good budget oriented high end laptop I would think. Its more or less moving the cost of a i7 cpu to fund the more important gpu for gaming purposes on a laptop. Depending on its price, It may be able to shove around alot of laptop recommendations.

    That Sapphire Mini APU computer looks SWEET. I could imagine something like w/ Kaveri. Would be an amazing portable gaming system.

    Far cry picture sure has a super realistic shoulder and head. The photographer got the right angle.

    Looks fun, but am I the only one who thinks "Never settle" isn't a good slogan for AMD right now, when their CPU-line is basically all about it?

    In image 3 there's a white desktop computer with green light - is that an off the shelf product? looks cool when compared to the 'standard black' stuff. Black's the new biege.

    We're pretty sure this can play Crysis.


    Not without a heatsink for the CPU it won't!

    Surprised at all the Intel mobos and nVidia graphics cards at an AMD Extravaganza.

    Most likely Newegg when its released. I think it might still be some time. It looks like AMD did not include MSI in its first batch of Trinity Processors. Also such a system is sure to have driver issues that have to worked out.
