     Wed, May 25 2016 | 4:03P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Asustek Computer and Gigabyte Technology are both expected to enjoy a slight on-year growth in motherboard shipments in the first half, but their increased shipments are taken from second- and third-tier players including ASRock, Micro-Star International (MSI), Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) and Biostar, which are expected to continue suffering from shipment and profit declines during the period, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.

Toshiba OCZ RD400
     Wed, May 25 2016 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here is the new 'Toshiba OCZ RD400', branded as such under the recent rebadging that took place on OCZ's site. The Trion 150 and Vertex 180 have also been relabeled as TR150 and VT180. This new RD400 has some significant changes over the previous iterations of that line. The big one is that it is now a lean M.2 part which can come on/with an optional adapter card for those not having an available M.2 slot.

Toshiba OCZ RD400 Series High-Performance NVMe SSD Review
     Wed, May 25 2016 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Toshiba OCZ is at the ready with a brand new NVMe solid state drive, targeted squarely at the high-performance enthusiast computing market. We first caught a glimpse of the drive we’re going to be showing you here today, the OCZ RD400, back at the Consumer Electronics Show in January. OCZ had the drive on display – branded the RevoDrive 400 at the time – blazing through some benchmarks at over 2.6GB/s. It took a bit of tweaking and fine tuning to get the drive ready for market, but it’s here now, and as you’ll see on the pages ahead, the RD400 was worth the wait...

OCZ Trion 150 480GB SSD
     Wed, May 25 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Coming to market as an improvement over the OCZ Trion 100 drives thanks to a process shrink to 15nm on the TLC NAND and firmware improvements to the Toshiba NAND controller, the OCZ Trion 150 holds its own when you look at the overall performance in each category. The performance most closely compares to drives using a Phison PS3110-S10 controller and Toshiba A19 MLC NAND, in my testing. That puts the OCZ Trion 150 in a pretty nice price/performance bracket. Actually, at $109, it's a steal at this point. After taking the time to play with this drive, I have found it to be just as snappy as any other drive I have tested except the one PCIe drive in the comparison field. While the pricing is low, OCZ is offering up a tremendous amount of support for the end user through its range of utilities, including both its SSD utility and firmware update tool. Add in the three-year advanced warranty program and you get a drive built to work well with great backup from the manufacturer.”

Posted by: STAFF
QUOTE: SteelSeries, a company known for their support of eSports and wide range of gaming peripherals, have just about finished refreshing their gaming headset series better known as “Siberia.” The Siberia 350 which Benchmark Reviews will be looking at today is a refresh of the previous SteelSeries Siberia v3 Prism headset. Utilizing 50mm drivers, DTS Headphone X technology and a classic SteelSeries fit and finish, the 350 adds 6.5 million colors through LEDs in the earcups and features SteelSeries technologies like GameSense through SteelSeries’ settings software, SteelSeries Engine 3. Will the 350 be a worthy addition to the Siberia lineup, or will these Siberias leave us out in the cold? Follow along and read about our experiences with SteelSeries’ newest headset.

Whether you are replacing stock fans in the case or building out a liquid cooling loop, you are going to need some kind of illumination to have it all stand out. There are numerous manufacturers …

DDR4 Memory at 4000 MHz, Does It Make a Difference?
     Tue, May 24 2016 | 5:23P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the most part we test using DDR4-3000, as it occasionally shows some benefits over the more typical 2400 and 2666 MHz speeds. Going to 4000 MHz and beyond is a massive increase in frequency (and cost) and I struggled to imagine where this would be useful, particularly when gaming. Then again, curiosity had gotten the better of me...

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.
