SSD REVIEW: Micron RealSSD P400e 6Gbps 200GB Enterprise SSD Review
     Wed, Apr 04 2012 | 7:07A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our SSD analysis today looks at the Micron RealSSD P400e SATA 3 enterprise SSD, a new entry with a new approach to integrating SSDs into the entry-level enterprise tier. The enterprise SSD market is segmenting into several layers that suit very different needs, and this entry level MLC based SSD looks to grab the mainstream customer market. Upper-echelon ultra high performance SSDs can command prices that are very prohibitive for the entry level crowd, and this is the void that the P400e looks to fill."

SilverStone Precision PS07 Micro-ATX Case Review @ OCIA.net
     Tue, Apr 03 2012 | 8:39P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Silverstone Precision PS07 micro-ATX chassis offers a more traditional layout than the Fortress series, although access to the interior is via the right side of the case, a-la BTX style format. The chassis features dual hidden 120mm silent fan intakes, along with an independent airflow channel for the power supply, all with easily removable filters. With a wide stance to accommodate extra room for cabling, the PS07 maintains a small footprint while allowing use of a full-size power supply and video card, not to mention up to six hard drives. It`s available in two color choices, black or white.?"

Hard-working drives: How floods in Thailand affect us all
     Tue, Apr 03 2012 | 2:43P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"when something like the Thai floods happens, it's startling to realise just how much we have all come to rely on hard drives. Every time you download a song from a service like iTunes or Spotify, every time you upload documents to Evernote or Google, every time you post to Facebook or Flickr, you are reading from or writing data to a hard drive somewhere on planet earth.

Plantronics Voyager PRO HD Bluetooth Headset Review
     Tue, Apr 03 2012 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sometimes i recall of a period when you could really have a hard time finding a nice Bluetooth earpiece to go with your brand new Bluetooth compatible cellular phone and so your only real choices were pretty much units manufactured by the same company as your phone. Fast forward almost a decade later and we now see countless Bluetooth earpieces from a large variety of companies ranging from small and young to large ones already counting many successful years in the market. Today's review is focused on such a product manufactured by Plantronics, one of the largest companies in the field and listens to the name Voyager PRO HD Bluetooth Headset.

iBUYPOWER Erebus GT Gaming System Review
     Tue, Apr 03 2012 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Erebus GT, iBUYPOWER set out to make a slightly smaller and less expensive line of systems to complement its Erebus custom gaming series, which is now renamed the Erebus XL series. There are actually three Erebus GTs in the new line, with configurations based on the AMD FX platform starting as low as $899, but the one iBUYPOWER sent us to test is an overclocked Intel Sandy Bridge-based version, Radeon HD 7970 graphics that costs $2499 (as configured). Yes, that’s a lot of moola, but as you’ll see, you get a lot of bang for those bucks...

Xeon E5 2600: Interview with Intel IT's Ajay Chandramouly
     Tue, Apr 03 2012 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this month, Intel's Sandy Bridge architecture finally made its way to the company's dual- and quad-socket-capable server processors with the new Xeon E5 product family. The launch is very important for Intel's business. Not only because of the growing server market, fueled by cloud computing initiatives and Internet-based companies, but also for its push to expand to storage and networking equipment. We had the opportunity to chat with Ajay Chandramouly, Cloud Computing and Data Center Industry Engagement Manager at Intel IT, who gave us some insight on how they have leveraged the Xeon processor family across their global data centers to drive better performance and capabilities along with cost savings.

AMD HD7870 2GB GDDR5 Review
     Tue, Apr 03 2012 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HD7870 comes with 2GB of GDDR5 which is more than enough for the today's latest games and has AMD's latest GCN enabled architecture codenamed 'Pitcairn XT'. We will go into the details of this new core on the next page but as you would expect it is slightly less powerful than the Tahiti XT while having much more grunt than the 77XX Cape Verde. Don't be fooled into thinking the HD7870 is a go between card though as going by the specifications, it is not far behind the HD7950 GPU which has been a massive hit here at Vortez. Hopefully we will see performance to equal the impressive specifications of the AMD HD7870 because if it doesn't, I fear the green team will be mopping up the mid-range market with their last gen GPUs.

Foxconn Nano PC nT-i1500 Barebone Review @ Madshrimps
     Tue, Apr 03 2012 | 8:23A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Foxconn has brought us to the table the latest generation of Intel Atom CPUs, by using the small Nano PC chassis which features about the same layout inside as the barebones we have tested from them in the past. The system power consumption is very low, temperatures are good in load and the noise generated is decent. Only thing that needs to be fixed to make this product fully functional is the VGA driver which in its current state offers low performance in both 2D and 3D environments, and Intel does not offer any support for x64 OSes."

Blackle vs. Google Monitor Power Consumption Tested
     Mon, Apr 02 2012 | 5:29P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com
Is the search page, Blackle.com, really an energy efficient alternative to Google? The theory is websites with black background save energy. PCSTATS finds out if this is a blatant green washing, or an earnest energy saving tweak for something we use every day.

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
