The very latest rumor too has confirmed that Apple will release the iPad Mini with Retina in 2014.

While good GPU compute benchmarks on the desktop are still hard to come by, we did find one that showed a real improvement from PCIe 3.0 support on the 7970: AMD's AES Encrypt/Decrypt sample application.

In The News From around the web

Last month when Apple unveiled its new Mac Pro with the capability of supporting 4k displays simultaneously, many fans went disappointed considering that no new higher resolution displays were announced to get the most of this Pro.
With the announcement of new Mac Pro, launching of new Thunderbolt display became inevitable.
Lately, the analysts from MPD Display Search claimed that iPad Mini 2 wouldn’t be launched with a Retina display.
The cheaper version would then be followed by a separately launched iPad Mini with retina display somewhere later in the last quarter of this year or during the first quarter of 2014.
Today it went a little further and gave the updated Thunderbolt spec a new name: Thunderbolt 2.
Current implementations are limited to 10Gbps per channel for data or display, both can't be sent over the same channel.

Sandy Bridge E & X79 PCIe 3.0: It Works

by Anand Lal Shimpi |
At the launch of Intel's LGA-2011 based Sandy Bridge E CPU we finally had a platform capable of supporting PCI Express 3.0, but we lacked GPUs to test it with.
As we've seen in earlier reviews and our own internal tests, there's hardly any difference between PCIe 2.1 x8 and x16 for modern day GPUs.
