OCZ Vector 180 480GB SSD Review
     Tue, Jul 28 2015 | 7:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SATA III based solid state drives (SSDs) may have reached the maximum supported read & write numbers most enthusiasts and gamers look for when out in the market for one but durability and sustained performance are the two most important aspects for professionals and enterprise users (probably even more important than maximum read & write speeds). Unfortunately ever since we made the SNIA IOMeter tests part of our testing methodology we've seen that not many models can produce good sustained performance numbers and so this might just be the next thing for them to focus on. However OCZ with their ARC 100 SSD model which we tested a few months back proved that they've already started to focus on that area (most likely thanks to their merge with Toshiba) and today we're taking their top of the line SATA III SSD model the Vector 180 480GB for a spin to see just how better it is compared to the ARC 100 and of course it's immediate competition.

It's been three and a half years since AMD made great strides with its first GCN
     Tue, Jul 28 2015 | 7:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Last week I started posting AMD A10-7870K Linux benchmarks for this "Godavari" APU that's effectively a Kaveri Refresh and slightly faster for its four CPU cores and Radeon R7 Graphics over the former high-end Kaveri, the A10-7850K. In today's articles are some benchmarks of the Radeon R7 Graphics on the A10-7870K when running Ubuntu and testing the open-source RadeonSI Gallium3D driver against Catalyst on Linux."

Radeon R9 390X, R9 390 & R9 380 Review
     Tue, Jul 28 2015 | 7:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's been three and a half years since AMD made great strides with its first GCN-based GPU. While there have been some notable releases in between, they're essentially rebadges with little to no performance edge over the original. We've been wondering what AMD's next move would be and it looks like the answer is yet another round of rebadged Radeons ahead of the real next-gen release. On hand today is the HIS IceQ X² OC R9 390X, R9 390 & R9 380.

Mlais M7 Smartphone Review
     Tue, Jul 28 2015 | 6:56P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Mlais M7 smartphone has given us an overall pleasant experience thanks to its high-quality build and system performance. Speaking about the performance, the MT6752 SoC is able to deliver quite a bit especially when it is paired with HD displays so we were able to score over 47K in AnTuTu. The total of 3GB of RAM helps running multiple applications while the included 16GB of internal storage should be enough for most people to install their favorite applications without the need to install an extra microSDHC card, at least in the first stage. The fingerprint sensor works decent and we were not able to fool it by trying other fingerprints in order to unlock the device, which is impressive.

Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) has announced that it will no longer actively market own-brand DIY motherboards but will undertake ODM/OEM production if clients have demand, and this is the equivalent of a gradual withdrawal from the global own-brand DIY motherboard market, according to Taiwan-based supply chain makers.

Palit's triple-slot GTX 980 Ti Super JetStream is the quietest GTX 980 Ti we tested so far, it's actually quieter than the watercooled AMD Radeon Fury X. Thanks to the overclock out of the box, the card is 9% faster than the much more expensive GTX Titan X.

QNAP TS-453mini NAS Review
     Tue, Jul 28 2015 | 6:16P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Powered by a dedicated and efficient platform from Intel, the J1900 quad-core processor and paired with 2GB of RAM, the TS-453mini is running the last version of the fully-fledged QTS which is currently at its 4.1.4 version and is also sporting a unique-shaped chassis design. Speaking about the chassis, now it looks more stylish, ideal to be installed in our living-room and the discrete LEDs help us find out the system status at all times; the memory is now very easy upgradable up to 8GB of RAM by simply removing a small plastic cover on the bottom area of the unit.

NVIDIA's Tegra X1 Delivers Stunning Performance
     Tue, Jul 28 2015 | 6:16P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA's Tegra X1 64-bit ARM SoC running (non-Android) Linux is a beast! I was given access to a SHIELD Android TV that was configured to run Ubuntu Linux, which has led for some exciting benchmarks. In some workloads, the Tegra X1 comes up just shy of an Intel Core i3 "Broadwell" system. The Tegra X1 has me very excited about the future of ARMv8 hardware on Linux and NVIDIA's continued Tegra advancements."

Acer Aspire S7-393 Review (2015): Refreshed
     Tue, Jul 28 2015 | 6:15P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We've got a fairly well defined set of expectations with today's current crop of ultrabooks. What you trade away in performance, you usually gain in convenience with these ultra-light, ultra-portable, and easy to carry laptops... However, we were pleasantly surprised to see Acer's Aspire S7-393 perform so well on most of the benchmarks we tossed its way, however, as you'll see on the pages ahead. This ultrabook is not only priced a touch lower than one of our favorite ultrabooks, the Dell's XPS 13, but it's also faster for general use and gaming (the latter, by just a smidge).

Intel And Micron Jointly Drop Disruptive, Game-Changing 3D XPoint
     Tue, Jul 28 2015 | 6:15P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This is something many people thought was impossible," exclaimed Intel Senior Vice President Rob Crooke. During an invite-only press conference, Crooke along with Micron CEO Mark Durcan revealed a radically new class of storage and memory architecture called 3D XPoint (pronounced "Cross Point"). To say this is a game-changer would be the understatement of the year. Get this: 3D XPoint is 1000 times faster than NAND, boasts 1000x the endurance of NAND, and is 10 times more dense than conventional memory. Consider that existing NAND flash storage is 1000 times faster than traditional mechanical hard drives. We’ll give you a minute to process that.

Logitech MX Anywhere 2 Wireless Mouse Review
     Tue, Jul 28 2015 | 6:08P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This month, Logitech released their most advanced wireless mouse ever, the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 Wireless Mobile Mouse. The mouse features something marketed as dual-connectivity, which in layman’s terms means that the Logitech MX Anywhere 2 Wireless Mobile Mouse can connect Windows or Mac computers with the included Pico Unifying USB Receiver or through Bluetooth Smart technology. More importantly the mouse features a Darkfield laser sensor that functions on pretty much any surface as long as they are 4mm thick...
