Sony Xperia Z1s Photo Leaked Shows Next to Xperia Z1

Japanese mobile phone maker Sony Mobile has been long rumored to plan the launch of a mini version of its Xperia Z1 smartphone, supposedly called Xperia Z1s, and it seems that the release date is drawing nearer.

Following various leaked info and photos with the device, we can now admire it in a new image, this time sized up against its bigger brother, the Xperia Z1. The handset, codenamed Amami and expected to arrive on shelves as Sony D5503, is said to sport a 4.3-inch touchscreen display, but to pack the same internals as Sony’s current flagship device.

The newly leaked photo comes from a Digi-Wo user, who claims that Sony might pack the smartphone with an IPS touchscreen, as XperiaGuide notes. No official confirmation on the smartphone has emerged until now, but it might not be too long before Sony decides to unveil it to the world, so stay tuned for more on the matter.

Dual-GPU AMD Vesuvius Radeon R9 290X x2 Graphics Card Coming

I’ve just finished writing about the dual-GPU ASUS Mars 760 (that's really its name), and now I have an AMD board to cover.

Well, that's not exactly true. The card doesn't exist yet after all, at least not in any complete form. AMD is definitely preparing it though, Chinese VR-Zone says, and has decided to give it the codename Vesuvius (the volcano that sunk Pompeii under lava). I definitely expect people to call it that too, since the actual product name doesn't roll off the tongue well, to say the least.

After all, the Vesuvius is a dual-Hawaii-XT called Radeon R9 290X x2. So many x's, it's astonishing really. The naming scheme AMD decided on for the R9/27 line is really troublesome. There's no technical info on the newcomer, but the TDP is bound to be high when just the R9 290X runs at 95 degrees Celsius.
