Posted by: STAFF
No doubt many of you just finished reading or writing a review of Nvidia's Kepler. Rather than add another review to your inbox, our article on Kepler focuses purely on analysis - on understanding the nature of Kepler and the implications for the future. Our look at Kepler focuses on architectural changes to the shader core that emphasize graphics performance and the enhanced power management. Based on our analysis of Nvidia's 28nm GPU strategy, we project a new shader core for throughput computing products and discuss the expected features.

Jabra SPORT Stereo Bluetooth Headset Review
     Mon, Mar 26 2012 | 12:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Technology surrounding cellular phones may have advanced over the last 5 years allowing for more use with far less health dangers still it's always recommended to use one with a Bluetooth headset to further minimize any possible dangers for your health. During the past years i have reviewed a large number of Bluetooth wireless headsets, some of them quite large and others quite small however almost all of them had one thing in common, they were single speaker headsets (mono) which naturally are what professionals would choose because of their small size and low weight. Still using a Bluetooth headset is not restricted to work or at home but also while at the gym or generally while exercising and that’s where normal headsets are simply not stable enough. Jabra saw that small gap in the market and released the Jabra SPORT wireless Bluetooth stereo headset in an attempt to cover all the people who were not satisfied with anything up to date.

Gigabyte Radeon HD 7870 OC
     Mon, Mar 26 2012 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As for Gigabyte, they have taken the new Radeon HD 7870 and made it even better with their upgraded WindForce 3X cooler and redesigned PCB, both of which appear to provide much greater overclocking headroom. For roughly just $10 more than the MSRP, we feel gamers are getting a real bargain with the GeForce Radeon HD 7870 OC.

10 Things to Consider Before Setting Up RAID @ TechwareLabs
     Mon, Mar 26 2012 | 9:02A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
RAID, the final frontier. These are the voyages of...ah, who am I kidding? Choosing to implement RAID today isn’t embarking on a mission to boldly go where no one has gone before. This technology has literally been around for years, and today RAID support can be found within most operating systems, integrated on motherboards, or easily added to any system as a 3rd party controller for almost nothing (quick search on Amazon yields controllers for less than $30). With its wide availability, you may find yourself at some point contemplating taking the plunge and configuring a RAID setup on your own system. However, before doing so, there are some things you should consider.

XFX R7850 Black Edition OC @ LanOC Reviews
     Mon, Mar 26 2012 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yesterday we took a look at the XFX R7870 Black Edition OC and really liked it. It seemed to fall into a nice sweet spot between price and performance. Today we are going to take a look at what looks to be the same card but bring the R7850 not the R7870, there are a few key differences. There are major differences in both power usage and compute performance between the two cards. I am really curious how this will translate to the performance and ultimately the price/performance that make the R7870 an idea card to pick up. Will the R7850 be an even better deal or a card to pass on?

Corsair Carbide 300R
     Mon, Mar 26 2012 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair is extending their case line, further pushing the price down to jump on the bandwagon with the 300R. We take the smallest brother of the Carbide series for a spin to see if it packs the punch of the 400 and 500R, or if other cases offer more performance for your money in this market segment.

Ivy Bridge High-Speed RAM Run
     Sun, Mar 25 2012 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Before we get into getting the kit up and running we've got to quickly some of the more major details of our testbed. On the motherboard side of things we're using the brand new GIGABYTE Z77X-UD5H. As for the CPUs, we've got both the Intel Core i5 3570k and higher end Core i7 3770k Ivy Bridge based parts. We've got our fingers crossed we've got everything we need to hit that 2666MHz DDR memory clock. Unfortunately off the bat we didn't. We found that our i7 3770k was capping out around the 2600MHz DDR mark, a little shy of the default 2666MHz DDR. Fortunately being based out of Taiwan and creating a vast network of people we managed to hunt down a Ivy Bridge 3770k from someone and sliding it into our testbed we had that running 2666MHz DDR straight away."

Choiix Wave Stand @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Mar 25 2012 | 9:03A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Tablets are all the rage these days. If you don’t have one, someone you know certainly does. At my house we didn’t until I recently purchased an iPad 2 for my wife. Now a lot of the cases we see fold back and will help prop the screen up slightly, but really that just works for a landscape view. A dedicated stand would be a bit more flexible here. Cooler Master has a product meant to address that issue. Enter the Cooler Master Wave Stand.

     Sun, Mar 25 2012 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The X79 Extreme9 shares the spotlight with the newly released X79 Professional which is under the Fatal1ty line. The Extreme9 has the features and options that the hard-core overclocker and enthusiast will look for in a new board to play around with. It begins with the 16+2 power phase configuration along with high-end caps and full featured AXTU overclocking software. But the overclocker isn’t the only people Asrock is aiming the Extreme9 at. There are the gamers as well. But what is it in for them? Read on and 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.
