Posted by: STAFF
The Radeon HD 7900 series were announced at the end of 2011 and since then the Linux support status for this hardware has remained a big question. For the Radeon HD 7000 series Southern Islands GPU launch, they did not send over any hardware samples so Linux consumers have left to be confused over the state of the non-Windows support for AMD`s hardware based on the Graphics Core Next architecture. Fortunately, here is finally an extensive look at the Radeon HD 7000 series on Linux with testing of a Radeon HD 7950."

Diamond Radeon HD 7970 3GB Video Card tested
     Sun, Mar 11 2012 | 10:46P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Since we knew that the Catalyst 12.2 drivers weren't far away we figured it was a good chance to look at the driver in a bit more detail than just our typical Catalyst benchmark line up, so that's exactly what we'll be doing today as we see how the Diamond HD 7970 with the series' first WHQL driver goes against the original launch driver we used. Of course there are a few things we need to do before we get into the performance side of things and we see exactly what's going on with the latest AMD driver. Since we haven't looked at the Diamond HD 7970, the first thing we need to do is take a closer look at the bundle to see exactly what's going on."

BIOS Option Of The Week
     Sun, Mar 11 2012 | 10:46P | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend.

Gigabyte Unveils U2442 Ultrabook With Great Features
     Sun, Mar 11 2012 | 10:46P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte unveiled it’s newest Ultrabook at the Planet Resellers pavilion of CeBIT 2012 and it seems someone has listened to the consumer for a change. At up to 3.3lbs and 0.81? thick, these 14 inch laptops definitely won’t qualify for Intel’s official ultrabook status, however, standard and available hardware make this ultra a showstopper. It seems that Gigabyte listened to the consumer in their building of the U2442N, as it has everything that we have seen missing in ultrabooks thusfar.

"Robots everywhere, driverless cars, new eco-solutions, screens that "read" feelings, and smart museums and stadiums - just some of the "City of the Future" technologies at this years' Cebit trade fair in Hanover, Germany.

Many of the devices on show sound like the stuff of science-fiction. But even if most are not yet ready for release, their developers are at least able to show off working prototypes."

Configuring a Windows 8 Virtual Machine
     Sun, Mar 11 2012 | 12:03P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the launch of Windows 8's Consumer Preview, you're probably itching to spend some quality time with Microsoft's latest operating system. Although you may have already downloaded the ISO, we bet some of you haven't decided how you're going to install it. Fortunately, running Windows 8 in a virtual machine solves all that: it won't remove your current OS, you can access it anytime you want without rebooting and it doesn't require any extra hardware. What's more, the test OS can be deleted in only a few mouse clicks.

Samsung Galaxy Note 5.3-Inch Android
     Sun, Mar 11 2012 | 12:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yeah, it’s pretty mega. The first reaction that you’re likely going to get from just about anyone about the Samsung Galaxy Note is that it’s huge. It looks like Samsung has taken the idea of the superphone and blown it up to even more epic proportions, but was that really the right move? And is the Galaxy Note more of a smartphone or is it more like a tablet?

Samsung Galaxy Note Smartphone Review
     Sun, Mar 11 2012 | 12:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While many of today's better smartphones offer dual-core processors and 1GB of RAM, alongside plenty of onboard storage, one of the easiest differentiating points between smartphones today has become the screen--size, resolution, and screen technology are all considerations. Samsung is pushing the former limits of smartphone screen sizes with the introduction of the new Samsung Galaxy Note. This smartphone offers one of the largest screens we've seen from a phone yet – 5.3 inches. In addition to being large, it is also a gorgeous display which uses Super AMOLED technology and offers a resolution of 1280x800...

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.
