TECHSPOT The Crew Benchmarked: Graphics & CPU Performance
     Tue, Sep 01 2015 | 4:03P | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While it may seem antiquated in this day and age of modern operating systems, the command line remains the most flexible and powerful way to perform tasks in Linux. In this follow up article to our command line series we go a bit deeper to discuss file metadata, permissions, timestamps, some new tools like tee, Vim, and more.

Tech Primer: What you need to know about DDR4 memory
     Tue, Sep 01 2015 | 4:02P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
From a physical standpoint, DDR4 is the same width as DDR3, but is slightly taller by about .9mm. The main physical difference between DDR3 and DDR4 is that DDR4 uses 288 pins compared to the 240 pins on DDR3 and the key is in a different location. Though there are ton of changes, the four major improvements of DDR4 SDRAM can be summed up in lower operating voltage, increased power saving enhancements, increased frequency, and improved chip density.

Silverstone Fortress FT05 Case
     Tue, Sep 01 2015 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Silverstone's "stacked" design might offer unbeatable cooling performance, but as we found out in our review of the Raven RV05, it also resulted in a lot of wasted space and a cramped area to work with. The company knows this and has come up with a calmer, classier version of its extreme gaming case with the new Fortress FT05.

Micron M600 SATA & M.2 Solid State Drive Review
     Tue, Sep 01 2015 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung made some waves earlier this year with the introduction of its 850 Pro family of solid state drives and the first commercial iteration of 3D stacked flash memory. Micron is striking back with lower-geometry 16nm conventional NAND, however, and a new drive technology it claims will accelerate performance more effectively than other competing solutions. The new Micron M600 family of solid state drives will launch at capacities ranging from 128GB to 1TB across multiple form factors. Conventional 2.5” SATA drives, mSATA, and the PCIe-capable M.2 platform are all supported with multiple drive sizes and form factors...

MSI GTX 980 Ti Lightning
     Tue, Sep 01 2015 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"MSI builds some pretty unique cards with its Lightning series. You know you are going to get world class components and build quality thanks to the deign work that MSI as a company does. In this respect, I am far from disappointed. For one, right out of the box the GTX 980 Ti Lightning was delivering FPS performance levels almost as high as an overclocked GTX Titan X with nothing more than letting the card do its thing while gaming. To deliver this kind of performance bump over the reference card is an amazing feat. There is not a single game or synthetic game test that the GTX 980 Ti Lightning is not the highest performing card in the comparison. When overclocked it falls a bit short of a clean sweep, but is consistently in the top two cards, making it one beast of a card, the Marshawn Lynch of video cards if you will. Even playing at 4K resolutions with a single card and the specific game settings proved possible with the GTX 980 Ti Lightning.”

Gigabyte GTX 950 OC Graphic Card Review
     Tue, Sep 01 2015 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With an exception the GPU’s dimensions, cooling setup and the GPU base/boost clock speed, it’s the same as stock. The Gigabyte GTX 950 WindForce OC Edition card’s base clock speed is 1102 MHz, which is a tiny 7.61% bump over its reference clock. Just like the Nvidia GTX 950, all AiB manufacturers will have their variants of the card, with a different cooling setup, dimension and clock speed.

Dell Inspiron 11 3000
     Mon, Aug 31 2015 | 4:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As much as we obsess about the latest and hottest hardware, we sometimes like to take a look at a value system to see what kind of bang you can get for your buck on a tight budget. And with the school year just getting underway, the Dell Inspiron 11 3147 caught our eye as a possible candidate for a highly mobile classmate or conference room colleague. It’s a light, tiny laptop with a screen that folds completely back so you can use the device as a tablet whenever it suits your needs. To a budget-minded student who wants a versatile laptop (that won’t feel like brick in his or her backpack), the Inspiron 11 3000 2-in-1 convertible could be a win. We took the system for a spin to see if it should be headed back to school with you this year...

Fractal Design Node 202 Enclosure Review
     Mon, Aug 31 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of Fractal Design's highlights at Computex 2015 was for sure the enclosure we are taking a closer look at in this review: the Node 202, a small footprint chassis, combining sleek and the typical Fractal looks. Nevertheless the dimensions, this Node 202 provides the option to install a high end gaming graphics card, thus making it ideal to serve as a HTPC media PC and/or gaming rig, this while blending in perfectly with other multimedia peripherals in your living room. The Node 202 is available in two versions, one with and one without the Fractal Design Integra 450W power supply. Fractal Design was so kind to send us the high end model with the PSU. Time to open the box and explore what this Node 202 can mean for you.

MSI GTX 950 Gaming 2G @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Aug 31 2015 | 12:17P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week Nvidia launched their GTX 950, a budget focused Maxwell card. At the launch I took a look at the Asus Strix 950. Well right after the Strix came in we had the MSI GTX 950 Gaming 2G come in as well. So today I’m going to see what sets the MSI apart and find out how it performs compared to the Asus as well as the two different R7 370’s that I have recently tested. This is a great chance to see how the Twin Frozr cooler on the MSI compares to the DirectCU II cooler on the Strix and to see what is the better option if you are on the market for a GTX 950.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
