For those who do not know most of your PC components come into the United States by way of West Cost ports. This is the way the supply chain works and has worked for years. This supply chain runs the risk of coming to a grinding halt if labor relations between port managers and the port workers union does not improve soon.

ASUS’s latest GeForce GTX 960 graphics card has been revealed and it is the mini version we all were hoping for. This card is of course built for compact mini-ITX motherboards. The card more or less looks identical to ASUS’s GTX 670 Mini and GTX 760 Mini graphics cards. The dual-slot card is only 17cm long and features an aluminum heatsink stack that is cooled by a “CoolTech” fan, which is a hybrid between a top-flow and lateral-flow fan.
It has been 5 days since we first reported on FrozenCPU apparently closing their doors. Since then there have been new revelations, rumors and more. Why is this such a big deal? Well FrozenCPU offers the largest selection of PC modification and watercooling parts in the US. From what we’ve seen they have ceased operations without any real explanation to its customers or the community. Currently orders are not being filled and current customers have had to call their credit card companies to get a refund processed.

Late last year we reported that AMD had cut ties with TSMC and would be manufacturing their GPU and APU products at Global Foundries. NVIDIA still uses TSMC to manufacture their chips, but recently they have moved to Samsung for 14 nm production. TSMC has just announced that they will not make any 20 nm GPUs at all, if anything 20 nm comes out of TSMC it will be low power ASICs.
We have some more news on AMD’s upcoming R300 series. The Radeon R9 380X and R9 380 which will be set to compete with NVIDIA’s GTX 980 and GTX 970 will be based on a new silicon called “Grenada”. This silicon is built on the 28 nm process and will be a refined version of “Hawaii” much like “Curacao” was to “Pitcarin” in the previous generation.
