Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review

When more cores are just not enough - When more cores are just not enough
Wed, March 31 2010 | 4:00PM | PermaLink Feedback?
"The CPU market is now flooded with multi-core and multi-threaded CPUs. We see them in everything from smartphones (with Dual Core Cortex A9 from ARM) to the highest end notebooks and desktops where the Core i7-980X is now king. But the question many people are asking is; what will more cores give me? - So let’s take a brief look at why even with 6 and 12 core CPUs in the channel we do not see better multi-thread and multi-tasking support in our applications and operating systems. The question of what does more cores get me is an important one and one that needs to be answered by the big software companies. If you go back a few years (like around 10), you will see that it was not until very recently that even the big names like Microsoft began to seriously consider multiple CPUs or cores in their products. True, you had Windows NT that would support more than one CPU, but the scheduler that handled the tasks was very basic, though it still achieved the end result and allowed you to use more than one CPU through the OS."

Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD6 Motherboard Review  - Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD6 Motherboard Review
Mon, November 08 2010 | 5:02AM | PermaLink Feedback?
"The GA-P55A-UD6 is part of Gigabyte’s Ultra Durable 3 lineup, supporting Intel Lynnfield processors. Sporting a 24-phase power VRD, the GA-P55A-UD6 provides unparalleled overclocking ability while keeping the system within optimal temperatures. If that wasn’t enough to impress you, the Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD6 also supports DDR3 2600+ MHz, SATA6 Gbps and USB 3.0. For the power user who needs a motherboard that can take the punishment of overclocking and has components begging to be tested, the Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD6 is more than worthy of the challenge."
