PC FORMAT 247 OUT NOW!
Here at Format, we’ve been monitoring the monitor situation since the situation with the monitors started. The situation at the moment is that there are monitors. Jeremy Laird flew onto Planet Monitor in his little spaceship and abducted a huge amount of them, then used the little scanning device built into the little spaceship to test them and come up with some reviews. If you’re thinking of abducting a monitor in your little spaceship, or just buying one from PC World, it’s essential reading.
Planet Graphics Cards has been throwing out some unusual projections, too, with AMD’s Radeon HD 6870 and HD 6850 coming in at an odd price point which actually makes sense when you think about it. Dexter puts them through their paces to find out if their chops match their shoes. We also look at Asus’ GeForce GT430, AMD’s Phenom II X6 1075T and Asus’ Sabretooth X58.
Ian Osbourne teleports to planet external hard drives to take a look at the best on offer, and Adam Oxford tests intergalactic communications methods – aka in-game voice services – and lets you know how to make the most of them. In our regulars, Neil Mohr shows how to get a graphics card working with your laptop, Tom Portsmouth makes another new case, and Luis dispenses his usual sardonic advice – for the 200th time.
On Planet Games, we preview the long-awaited Duke Nukem Forever, Test Drive Unlimited 2 and Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. We’ve got a fistful of reviews – including Medal of Honor and Lost Planet 2 – and a big in-depth on MineCraft.
It’s another great emission from planet Format, and its in your local intergalactic good exchange service that also sells tinned beans (newsagent) now.
