With the nice weather, there are a lot of people out on the water in all kinds of crafts. This, of course, makes a lot of work for the Coast Guard to monitor the situation and make sure everyone is being safe. As a boater, you also have to keep in mind the size of your vessel and who you need to give the right of way to. For example, if you are on a power boat you must give the right of way to a sail boat that is under wind power. The biggest reason is they simply do not have the maneuverability to get out of a situation as quickly. There is a large amount of shipping traffic that comes in and out of the harbor on a regular basis, as well, so it's important to be mindful of these larger ships.

For every personality and budget there is a class of boat available. You have everything from sailboats that are little day sailors to the massive yachts that celebrities own. Just like with boats, there are computers for every personality type and budget. You have the enthusiast crowd that spends large amounts of money on hardware on a regular basis and likes to push their systems to the limit. Then, of course, you have your mainstream crowd that just want something to surf the internet on and maybe play some games at a reasonable frame rate. We can't forget about the budget user either, who can't afford to spend $500 on one component and need to get the most for their dollars.

AMD’s 2013 “Richland” A-series Desktop APUs includes two new chips, the A10-6800K and A10-6700 processors. These processors are powered by AMD’s “Piledriver” 32nm compute modules. The A10-6800K is the top processor in the A-Series, which is unlocked for performance tuning with a 100W TDP. The 6800K has four CPU cores with clock speeds of 4.1 GHz and turbo speeds of 4.4 GHz. The A10-6700 has a TDP of 65W and is only slightly slower at 3.9 GHz and 4.2 GHz for the turbo. Both A10 models feature an integrated HD 8670D graphics core with 384 Radeon cores and GPU clock speeds of 844 MHz. The 6800K supports memory speeds up to DDR3 2133 MHz, while the rest of the series support memory speeds to DDR3 1866 MHz. With the AMD processors, there is support for Eyefinity with up to 4 displays. To use all four displays, one must be daisy chained on the DisplayPort 1.2 connection.
