All about 3rd generation Intel-Core-processors (Ivy Bridge)
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:42P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During CeBIT 2012, the BIOSTAR GROUP, major manufacturer of motherboards, VGA cards, industrial computer systems and other peripherals, is introducing their all new motherboard line-up for Intel Ivy-Bridge and Sandy-Bridge-E processors.

“CeBIT is undoubtedly the most important trade show for us to meet with customers and partners in order to introduce our latest products and technological innovations. This year we are setting new standards in the industry by showcasing high-performance and function-packed solutions. CeBIT 2012 is bound to become a great success for BIOSTAR“. Focus at this year’s show is the brand-new Z77-chipset based series of motherboards, for third generation Intel-Core-processors (Ivy Bridge). The BIOSTAR-Z77 lineup consists of 5 motherboard models.

While the TZ77XE4, TZ77XE3, TZ77A, and TZ77B come as ATX form factor models, the TZ77MXE is designed as MicroATX platform.

Another highlight is the TPOWER X79 motherboard, built around the Intel X79 Express chipset for high-performance Sandy-Bridge-E processors. This LGA-2011-Socket motherboard is equipped with three PCI-Express x16 slots, supporting AMD’s CrossFireX as well as Nvidia’s SLI multi-graphics technologies for most powerful graphics performance.

For AMD enthusiasts, BIOSTAR has the TA990FXE flagship motherboard with the advanced AMD 990FX chipset in combination with the SB950 Southbridge on display. The AM3+ socket on this BIOSTAR-Motherboard also supports AMD 6-core as well as 8-core FX-processors.

Furthermore BIOSTAR is showing an array of Intel Z75 and B75 chipset based motherboard at this year’s CeBIT.

Lenovo IdeaPad A1 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:33P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the IdeaPad Tablet A1, Lenovo has attempted to make a fun and easy-to-use 7-inch tablet for the masses. Unfortunately for Lenovo, Amazon has already cornered that market with the Kindle Fire. The IdeaPad A1 is not only $50 more, but it offers up a subpar, lower-resolution screen, an aging OS, and middling performance."

MSI X79A-GD65 (8D) LGA 2011 ATX Motherboard Review
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:33P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is always a steep price with upgrading to the newest processors and motherboards, and this is where the X79A-GD65 (8D) may have difficulties against other competitively-priced offerings from Gigabyte and ASUS. Users with deep pockets won`t blink an eye at dropping $300 on a motherboard, but combine that with purchasing quad-channel memory and an i7-3820 and the entire upgrade could cost close to $800 for only three components.

Antec VP350 Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:25P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Basiq power supply series from Antec is targeted to users with serious budget restrictions. The new VP350 and VP450 models are the most entry-level power supplies offered by Antec, as they don`t have a PFC circuit or 80 Plus certification. We`ve already reviewed the VP450, which achieved terrific performance for its class. Now it is time for us to test the 350 W model."

Hands On With the New iPad @ TechReviewSource.com
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:10P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Apple didn`t actually need to release an iPad to stay on top of the tablet game. The company dominates the tablet market; its top competitor, Google, has been doing a notoriously poor job of cultivating third-party apps for its tablets. The new iPad model has a Retina display, an improved processor, 4G LTE connectivity and more."

Kingwin Lazer Platinum LZP-1000 1000-watt Power Supply Review
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:10P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingwin makes sure you`re taken care of with plenty of features in the LZP-1000. All your protections are present. The LZP-1000 has both native and modular cabling, all of which is fully sleeved. The LZP-1000 is also capable of delivering 100% continuous output at 50C. Kingwin has an MSRP of $229 on the LZP-1000 1000W unit. We were able to find it cheapest at Newegg for $193.98 at the time of writing this article after shipping and a $20 MIR. That makes it at least $50 cheaper than any other 1000W Platinum unit on the market today. Kingwin backs the LZP-1000 with their customary five year warranty."

Rosewill Blackhawk-Ultra Super Tower Computer Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:10P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Rosewill put a lot of thought into the Blackhawk Ultra Super Tower especially for those that want to run on air. With no less than seven fans included and space to mount another seven this has to be one of the highest air flow potential cases we have seen in full tower form factor. Rosewill also made the case silent by using these large fans we could barely hear any audible noise. It is hard to beat 10 + 1 hard drive / SSD mounting spots which should be more than enough for even the largest media collector. Our own uber rig only has 5 HDD and 3 SSD`s which would leave three open slots in this beast..."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Futurelooks Previews the NEW ASUS Z77 LGA1155 Motherboard Series
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that,Futurelooks was in California checking out the new ASUS Intel 7 Series boards. Here`s what we can tell you... * * *Futurelooks Previews the NEW ASUS Z77 LGA1155 Motherboard Series* * * I recently took a quick trip down to visit ASUS to see their new Z77 motherboards that support Intel?s upcoming 3rd Generation Core Series Processors. In my opinion, it really says something a company?s confidence in its products when they are able to show off their products well in advance of launch while answering all your most detailed questions. Naturally, the ASUS Z77 series motherboards support socket LGA 1155 processors, and is still backwards compatible with 2nd generation ?Sandy Bridge? and upcoming 3rd Generation Intel Core Series processors. The entire line also received a face lift and quite a few new updates. Let?s have a quick look! *"

AMD Catalyst 12.2 Windows 7 Driver Analysis
     Thu, Mar 08 2012 | 4:01P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I hate to say it, but since Terry Makedon left the AMD driver team it just hasn`t felt the same and if there was any situation that would cause AMD to miss a month it was going to be that and while it`s been a while since he left, they work so far ahead that it was going to take time for the cracks to begin to show. This February the company also had an extra day thanks to the leap year, and they still didn`t hit it. While AMD released a Pre-Certified version of the driver earlier in the month, which they say is exactly the same; it just doesn`t have the Windows logo. The bottom line is they`ve prided themselves that for some odd 7 years they`ve offered a WHQL driver every month."

Choiix Wake Up Folio @ LanOC Reviews

Posted by: STAFF
Finally decided to drop the cash on an iPad 2 did you? Well if you made the investment you are going to want to protect it. When I bought my wife an iPad a couple of weeks ago, the first thing I went looking for was a case. Cooler Master presented the opportunity to review their Choiix branded ?Wake Up Folio? which would provide the iPad something in the way of protection. The Wake Up Folio comes in a variety of colors to choose from."
