XFX R7790 Black Edition OC @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Apr 21 2013 | 10:07P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The AMD product lineup had a small hole in it for a long time between the HD 7770 and the HD 7850. We heard a few rumors about the possibility of an HD 7790 or an HD 7830 and just after LanOC V12 AMD launched their answer the HD 7790. We are a little late to the party, but we have had time to put ours to the test with our revamped benchmark suit that features the latest games. Lets take a look at how it performs compared to AMDs other offerings as well as NVidias new GTX 650 Ti Boost. Is this a good time to pick up a new video card?"

In Win BP655 Chasis @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Apr 21 2013 | 3:50P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have seen a lot of In-Win products both through our office here at LanOC and as raffle prizes for the LanOC events. With the upcoming LanOC 12.0 we were in the market for a portable solution for our router, one that wasnt built in haste on a late night in the middle of our last LAN like our current router. Intel had already provided a mini ITX motherboard and a half height network card that needed a home so we started our search there. We came across the BP655 from In Win that fit the bill perfectly. They were kind enough to supply us with a new home for our new router, now join as and see how this case sizes up (pun intended) to the competition."

GTX 650 Ti Boost SLI @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Apr 21 2013 | 12:49P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yesterday I took a look at the MSI GTX 650 Ti Boost Twin Frozr 2Gb OC Edition, although I teased about its extremely long name I was impressed with the card overall. Being the second GTX 650 Ti Boost that we took a look at, I of course couldnt resist pairing it up with the reference card as well for a little SLI testing. As with our other SLI and crossfire posts we dont mess around talking about the cards at all. You can check out the individual reviews for that. We jump right into the performance results and give you what you want to see. Enjoy!"

CM Storm Quickfire TK Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Sun, Apr 21 2013 | 12:34P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For many of our readers, a keyboard is the way they interact with the world whether it is for work or pleasure. In our ever more connected world, problems like typing speed and comfort are becoming more of a necessity than a nicety. Cooler Master realizes this and has brought out an entire line of mechanical keyboards to handle the demanding needs of typists. In this review, we will be looking at the CM Storm Quickfire TK w/Cherry MX Red switches. These light linear switches are preferred by many gamers for their light touch and linear motion.

ADATA DashDrive Elite UE700 USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Sun, Apr 21 2013 | 12:22P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new DashDrive UE700 is the latest brainchild of ADATA. Using USB 3.0 technology, the UE700 was designed for faster transfer speed of stored data at 200MB/s read and 100MB/s write. This is sure to be one of the faster flash drives we have ever tested, probably even the fastest. With such great advertised speeds, the UE700 is also a nice piece of visual work. Sleek and functional, it could very well be your next flash drive."

CyberPower PR1500ELCDRTXL2U Professional Rackmount Series UPS Review
     Sun, Apr 21 2013 | 9:59A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I can`t really speak for all of you out there since i haven`t really spent that much time in other countries to have a valid opinion but where i live electricity is not very stable and so the first thing i always say whenever people ask me about what PSU (power supply unit) they should choose is to get a UPS first (uninterruptible power supply) to ensure that nothing ends up getting fried in their systems (especially if we are talking about expensive configurations). Granted many power supply units feature electrical protections that can successfully shield your systems from such unpleasant events but personally i think it`s far better to be safe than sorry so as we speak i have all my test rigs plugged into 4 UPS units (two 1000VA and two 1500VA). However much like everything else UPS devices also differ according to build quality and different levels of protection offered so in the market we one can find consumer oriented ones aimed for house use, advanced ones for the more demanding office use and finally professional ones designed mostly to withstand the demands of enterprise environments where you simply can`t afford not having the best there is. CyberPower is amongst the leading UPS manufacturers and today we will be taking a look at their latest professional Rackmount series UPS unit the 1500VA/1125W PR1500ELCDRTXL2U."

Plantronics Voyager Legend UC Bluetooth Headset Review
     Sun, Apr 21 2013 | 6:39A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I got my first Bluetooth wireless headset back in early 2003 and it was the none other than NOKIAs first real attempt in the Bluetooth wireless headset market, the HDW-2 (i still have it in working condition) which i paired back then with my brand new NOKIA 6600 smartphone. Of course 10 years later things have changed a lot both when it comes to Bluetooth wireless headsets and smartphones and by a lot i mean in ways we couldn`t had predicted back then. Sure the concept has remained the same just like with most things that have evolved (take cars or PCs for example) but we now have wireless headsets that look better, weigh a lot less, have far superior audio quality for both ends, feature impressive noise-cancelling technologies, can be voice controlled, have longer battery lives, feature motion sensors, can stream media from your Bluetooth enabled device and much more. A while ago we reviewed the Voyager Legend Bluetooth wireless headset which is pretty much the best one currently available in the market both in terms of audio quality and features. Well it seems that Plantronics thinks so too and so recently they unveiled the more complete UC version which we have here with us today."

Where is all this process tech going? GLOBALFOUNDRIES: 2013 and Beyond
     Sat, Apr 20 2013 | 10:07P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While shoring up the 32 nm process was of extreme importance to GF, it seemingly took resources away from further developing 28 nm and below processes. While work was still being done on these products, the roadmap was far too aggressive for what they were able to accomplish. The hits just kept coming though. AMD cut back on 32 nm orders, which had a financial impact on both companies. It was cheaper for AMD to renegotiate the contract and take a penalty rather than order chips that it simply could not sell. GF then had lots of line space open on 32 nm SOI (Dresden) that could not be filled. AMD then voided another contract in which they suffered a larger penalty by opting to potentially utilize a second source for 28 nm HKMG production of their CPUs and APUs. AMD obviously was very uncomfortable about where GF was with their 28 nm process."

GIGABYTE HD7790 Review @ Vortez
     Sat, Apr 20 2013 | 3:50P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The AMD Radeon HD 7790, codenamed `Bonaire`, is the latest entry level graphics card to exit the AMD laboratories. We tested the HD7750 and 7770 some time ago now but with NVIDIA`s GTX650Ti stealing the limelight recently, AMD have upped the ante by releasing this GPU with an entirely new 28nm Graphics Core Next ASIC and in doing so hope to reclaim the entry level crown. We get a first glance of the card today before committing ourselves to our usual full in-depth review."

Gateway DX4870-UB17 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sat, Apr 20 2013 | 12:49P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gateway DX4870-UB17 is the latest budget desktop we`ve seen from the company with the cow print on its logo. It`s a fine replacement for the six-year-old PC you`re thinking about replacing, particularly if you have no need for a touch-enabled all-in-one PC or want to continue to use the LCD monitor you bought a few years ago."

Acer Aspire V5-571P Review - XSReviews
     Sat, Apr 20 2013 | 12:22P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So earlier on XSReviews we took a look at the Acer Aspire S7, an 11.6? or 13? Ultrabook with a super svelte design and powerful hardware but dogged with persistently poor battery life. Today, we`re taking a look at what Acer is doing at a more affordable range of the spectrum with the Acer Aspire V5-571P. There are a few different configurations available here, but we`ll be taking a look at the model equipped with a Core i5 processor, a 500 GB mechanical hard drive, 6 GB of RAM and a touch screen. That puts it on the upper end of configurations available, but reflections upon other aspect should be shared between models. Right, let`s get into it, starting with a more detailed look at the specifications available. There`s nothing too out of the ordinary here, so if you`re pressed for time it can make sense to skip over to the unboxing or physical features. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Crucial M500 Solid State Drive (960GB) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Today we see Crucial attempt to drive the SSD market forward with the introduction of a SSD which has a capacity up to 960GB (so the best part of 1TB) while maintaining a price point which competes with 512GB models from the likes of Samsung and OCZ. Can the new M500 compete in performance as well as cost? In a selection of synthetic and real world tests we find out."

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.
