32 Intel Z77 motherboards tested with Ivy Bridge processors
     Wed, Jul 04 2012 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In April we published a round-up of 20 motherboards with Z77 chipsets compatible with the new Intel Ivy Bridge processors. Those CPUs weren't available yet at the time so we had to do the tests with the previous generation Sandy Bridge processors. Almost three months have passed in the meantime, and we now have 32 Z77 motherboards in our test lab along with Ivy Bridge processors. We tested every motherboard all over again, with an up-to-date BIOS and with an Core i7 3770K Ivy Bridge processor.

QNAP TS-412: entry-level all the way
     Wed, Jul 04 2012 | 9:01A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
QNAP is known for being rather expensive, but the TS-412 is the exception to the rule. QNAP makes nice products, but are typically also priced accordingly. We can certainly claim this after reviewing the QNAP TS-669 Pro. It's a powerful NAS with room for six disks running on Intel hardware. It's very comprehensive and fast, but with an average price tag of £872 it's not for everybody. The QNAP TS-412 is a different beast altogether, with room for four disks and a more reasonable price of £263 that's in the area of the recently tested Thecus N4100EVO.

A Futurelooks News Flash - G.Skill Trident 2400MHz 8GB DDR3 Dual Channel Memory Kit Review
     Tue, Jul 03 2012 | 9:13P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Its been a while since I put a few elite overclocking DDR3 memory kits to work on any these pimped out Intel Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge test systems. While overclocking the memory itself wont give you any gains, overclocking the CPU at the same time is what allows you to use that bandwidth. You have to do both and thats when a memory kit like the G.Skill Trident 2400MHz DDR3 8GB dual channel memory kit comes in handy, offering you the best IC modules which also allow for tighter memory timings, if you choose to downclock them, for better system response. Lets see how tight and fast we can get these modules to run today. *"

The Sony VAIO E15 looks to stand out from the rest of the laptop crowd by having a more stylish design. It also has a competitive price at $500 as well as all the latest in connectivity options and a comfortable keyboard. Performance is good, but we wish a faster hard drive option was available."

SSD NEWS: LSI SAS 9207-8i PCIe 3.0 HBA Overview - Eight Crucial M4 SSDs Pushed to 4.1GB/s Performance
     Tue, Jul 03 2012 | 4:05P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
LSI`s new PCIe 3.0 HBA and MegaRAID offerings promise oodles of extra performance above and beyond the limitations imposed by PCIe 2.0. While the new Gen3 MegaRAID solutions are still a ways out, we happen to have a Gen3 HBA here. This particular 9207-8i is destined for our enterprise evaluation system, but since it`s a new product and all, we thought we`d hook up some SSDs and see if performance is really better as a result. Can we break the 3GB/s limit of the PCIe 2 LSI 9211? Can we get some great scaling off of eight Crucial M4 256GBs on 000F firmware?"

Super Talent USB 3.0 Express RC8 50GB Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Jul 03 2012 | 4:05P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In terms of performance, while we never did get the drive to hit the rated 270MB/s reads and 220MB/s writes, we came very close. Still, it`s very cool to be able to plug into a USB 3.0 port and move huge amounts of data with ease in no time at all. We were able to stream high-definition video with nary a hiccup. Even with the turbo software in normal mode, this drive cooks but with turbo enabled it`s simply amazing..."
