 [LATEST]  SilverStone SX600-G SFX 600W Power Supply Review
     Fri, Dec 19 2014 | 4:49A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the overall build quality and performance are good, the SX600-G doesnt stand out in any particular area (other than size!) when compared to other enthusiast-grade 600W ATX power supplies. It normally would not bring home a PCPerspective Gold Award (especially with a 3-year warranty) except that the SX600-G is unique and occupies a very specific niche market. We have enjoyed our time with the SX600-G and have come to appreciate the advantages of a relatively high power small form factor PSU for use in compact, cramped chassis; even when they are designed to accommodate a full size ATX PSU. The SX600-G does an excellent job of delivering on its design goals and deserves to be recognized."

E-CEROS Revolution 2 Tablet Review @ Madshrimps

Posted by: STAFF
The tablet from the E-CEROS Chinese OEM has really impressed us in terms of performance; Revolution 2 is the successor of the original Revolution tablet which was launched last year and packs a gorgeous IPS 2048x1536 9.7 display and in some way it has some resemblances with the Apple products."

Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB 2800MHz DDR4 Review
     Thu, Dec 18 2014 | 10:53P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Packed full of promise, the latest modules in the Vengeance series of Corsair`s DDR4 memory lineup deliver excellent performance when tweaked to get the tightest timings. Out of the box they come with 16-18-18-36 primary timings using just 1.2v to run the modules. By tweaking the applied voltage a little bit you can get the timings much tighter at the rated speed and even when running at my max overclock of 3200MHz. At this speed I was able to run the timings at 15-15-15-28 2T using over 1.4v applied to the modules. The modules were not 100% stable at that speed, but were good for benchmarks all day long, delivering some substantial performance gains when run with a heavily overclocked Core i7 5960X. Full stability was gained at 16-16-16-30, but could be run tighter if you want to drop the module`s speed or increase the voltage a bit higher. Although for this test I stuck with 1.45v as my max voltage in the absence of more robust cooling methods."

Core i7-5960X vs. Core i7-5820K - Content Creation performance analysis @ ocaholic
     Thu, Dec 18 2014 | 9:24P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is a variety of customer groups, which demand as much power as possible from their computers in order to accelerate processes in order to become more efficient and in the end increase revenue or add additional value to their projects. Especially in the field of content creation, which includes editing pictures and videos or even rendering a complex scenery with beautiful effects, will benefit largely from fast processors as well as a powerful underlying system architecture. With this series of articles we`re going to compare two processors with every single article. The CPUs tested are being run at stock clocks as well as overclocked and apart from that we will also vary the memory frequency. It is our goal to show in depth which CPU is how much faster or slower than another one."

Case Mod Friday: Ex-Box PC @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Dec 18 2014 | 7:55P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have Aaron Howe`s Ex-Box PC build. Here is what he had to say about it: I used to work for xbox tech support, and after leaving their employment I repaired 360`s on the side. Due to this I had some extras lying around, and wanted to see if it was possible to put a computer inside of one without any major components sticking out. All previous builds you could see GPU fans, or CPU coolers sticking out, and I felt like that was ugly. I wanted to make it be a `sleeper` - so that is what I set out to do, and believe I accomplished."

ASUS ROG Gladius Gaming Mouse Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Dec 18 2014 | 4:57P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS has brought forward a gaming mouse that complements the Republic of Gamers product family that?s sure to grab your attention with its fierce appearance, high end features, and a strangely familiar ergonomic design. The ROG Gladius is named after the signature handheld weapon of Ancient Roman generals to complement the Maximus motherboard named after the title given to highly respected generals. This neat tidbit is printed on the inner side of the front flap on the box. It?s rare to see ASUS produce gaming peripherals, but the ROG Gladius is hardly their first gaming mouse and ASUS has more than proven their design and production capabilities in several computer hardware categories."

Toshiba Announces 6TB Enterprise Capacity HDDs
     Thu, Dec 18 2014 | 4:49P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Toshiba Electronics Europe (TEE) announces the addition of 6TB[1] SATA and SAS models to its MG04 series of 3.5-inch form factor enterprise capacity class of hard disk drives (HDD). The new SAS interface models provide the benefits of 12Gbit/s[2] SAS transfer rates and enhanced power management features for seamless integration with the latest generation of data center infrastructure. The MG04 series is specifically designed for midline and nearline business critical workloads.

The new MG04 series 6TB models offer a 50 per cent[3] increase in max capacity from prior MG03 generation 4TB models and a 30 per cent[4] increase in sustained data rate. These enterprise HDDs support both industry-standard 4K native and 512e Advanced Format sector technologies for optimum performance in the latest generation servers and storage systems. Emulated 512e Advanced Format sector technology performs best in legacy applications requiring 512 sector lengths using aligned-write environments.

Both the 6TB MG04ACA and MG04SCA models offer Toshiba persistent write cache technologies, designed to help protect against data loss in the event of sudden power loss, while also helping to improve performance and data reliability. Model options supporting SAS and SATA commands to enable sanitize “instant” cryptographic erase (SIE) are also available.

Spinning at 7,200 rotations per minute (RPM), the MG04SCA and MG04ACA deliver nearline-class seek performance to improve application response times. At 6TB, the higher capacity per spindle saves rack space and reduces the footprint and operational burden of business-critical servers and storage systems to help optimize total cost of ownership in high-density scale-out environments. The 6TB models provide 50 percent better power efficiency (watts per terabyte) than the previous 4TB drive generation.

“Our customers expect to benefit from the increased capacity, efficiency and performance made possible by the latest industry-standard interface and long sector technologies,” said Martin Larsson, Vice President, Toshiba Electronics Europe, Storage Products Division. “These additions to the MG04 series deliver an impressive 6TB capacity and continue to provide the benefits of Toshiba’s persistent write cache technology to enhance performance for business critical server and storage systems.”

The 6TB MG04ACA 6Gbit/s SATA and MG04SCA 12Gbit/s SAS models will begin sampling to OEM customers in Q1 2015.

The Nvidia Shield Tablet has already landed many awards for being a great gaming tablet, I myself reviewed it just a few weeks ago and absolutely loved it! However, not all of the features were ready from day one and Nvidia have been working hard to bring the latest Android 5.0 update to their powerful tablet. The Shield Tablet is already packed full of features, as you can see from the chart below. The new update not only updates the OS, but paves the way for even more features in the near future.

Lian Li PC-V359 M-ATX Chassis Review
     Thu, Dec 18 2014 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ian-Li have one of the best reputations in the chassis industry, it’s as if this company finds it impossible to make a product that is anything less than incredible. They are the masters of aluminium chassis construction and time and time again we’ve seen them release award-winning chassis products that offer premium performance, style, build quality and features; and they often come with the premium price tag to match. Today looks set to continue their never-ending combo of excellence, as we take a look at their new Micro-ATX super star; the PC-V359. There is a big demand right now for a chassis that lets you show off your rig, and the common side panel window isn’t always the best option. People love to show of their high-end components; who would want to spend £1000 on a graphics card if you can’t admire its awesome cooler design? The PC-V359 aims to offer a fresh perspective from its unique front panel and top panel window combo.
