NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, Apr 09 2013 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the economy on the rebound, gamers are coming out of hibernation with a hunger for modern DirectX11 graphics and realism. Since AMD has all but disappeared from the scene, NVIDIA has timed their affordable mainstream video card launch perfectly. Based on the NVIDIA Kepler GK106 architecture, the GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST delivers 2GB of 1502 MHz GDDR5 memory and 768 CUDA Cores operating at 980 MHz up to 1033+ with NVIDIA GPU Boost technology. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST graphics card using several highly-demanding DX11 video games."

Everything You Need to know about Google Keep @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Apr 09 2013 | 8:01A | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For many mobile users, note-taking apps and services are an indispensable tool to keep track of their schedule and tasks. In fact, Apple mobile users have long been enjoying the built-in Note feature on their devices for creating basic to-do list, while others refer to Evernote and Workflowy for more elaborate note-taking tasks. Fortunately, Google is jumping into the bandwagon. With what appears as a long overdue reply to Evernote and Apples built-in Note feature, Google has just unveiled its own note-taking service app called Keep, giving Android phone users a faster way to make and save reminders and notes."

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - SDRAM Page Hit Limit
     Tue, Apr 09 2013 | 12:01A | 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. This week, we will be taking a look at the *SDRAM Page Hit Limit *setting."

Windows 7 & Windows 8 vs. Ubuntu 13.04 & Fedora 18
     Mon, Apr 08 2013 | 11:24P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last month Phoronix published Intel OpenGL benchmarks showing Windows 8 outperforming Ubuntu 13.04 with the latest Windows and Linux drivers from Intel. I also showed that even with the KDE and Xfce desktops rather than the default Unity/Compiz desktop to Ubuntu, Windows 8 still was faster on this Intel Ivy Bridge platform. The new benchmarks to share today from this Intel Ultrabook are the Windows 8 and Ubuntu 13.04 results but also with performance figures added in from Microsoft Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1 x64 and Fedora 18."

SuperTalent USB 3.0 Express RC4 64GB Flash Drive Review
     Mon, Apr 08 2013 | 10:11P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back at ceBIT Germany 2013, SuperTalent was kind enough to provide an exclusive sample of their upcoming RC4 flash drive release and we conducted an impromptu review, discovering decent result for the form factor that it is. We were fortunate to bring that RC4 back to TSSDR and have had the opportunity to conduct a bit more detailed of an analysis. Not yet available for consumer purchase, we have to give you a heads up that this device is a release you might just want to watch for. The sheer beauty of the SuperTalent USB 3.0 Express RC4 flash drive is that it is one of the few devices that is Microsoft Windows To Go certified and is expected to come with a trial of MS `Windows To Go` on purchase. This means that you can plug the RC4 into any Windows machine and start right from the flash drive, running what is essentially a version of Windows 8. From there, you can then go to any other Windows system, boot the drive once again from the system bios and you are right back in your own OS environment once again."

OCZ Vertex 3.20 20nm 240GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Apr 08 2013 | 7:45P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ is certainly getting a lot of mileage from the Vertex moniker. First introduced way back in early 2009, it seems a lot longer than just four years ago. They have good reason to perpetuate the name as the Vertex drives have been one of if not the best selling line of SSDs ever. Back in 2011, we first had a look at the Vertex 3 drives featuring the then new SandForce SF-2281 controller. At the time, it featured 25nm -34nm (keep reading!) MLC NAND and set the bar for enthusiast level SSD performance. Fast forward to 2013 and OCZ has quietly released the latest Vertex 3 incarnation with a .20 mantissa tacked on to represent the 20nm MLC NAND contained within..."

INEO I-NA321U PLUS Docking Station @ Benchmark Reviews
     Mon, Apr 08 2013 | 5:19P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Try to imagine what the ideal external hard drive docking station might look like. It should be compact, intuitive to use, and ideally be a relatively good looking piece of hardware. And it should be fast. At first glance the I-NA321U+ seems to have all that and more. The I-NA321U+ is a USB 3.0 compatible dual hard drive docking system with a few very handy features. Perhaps the most interesting of the value-added features is a one touch drive copy function. In this article, Benchmark Reviews will take a look at this relatively new dual drive docking station from ineo Technology, Inc."

HP Envy X2 11-G010NR Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Mon, Apr 08 2013 | 4:06P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HP Envy x2 has a beautiful thin, brushed-silver design that really makes it stand-out from the crowd. But in terms of performance, it could be better as the Intel Atom Z2760 and 2GB of RAM only provide adequate power."

SSD News: KingSpec E3000S Challenger SSD Review - EMLC Endurance and LSI SandForce Performance
     Mon, Apr 08 2013 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our SSD analysis this week displays only the second consumer available SSD to hit the streets with eMLC 10,000 P/E rated memory. The KingSpec Challenger E3000s SSD is enterprise grade, LSI SandForce Driven, and relies on Intel eMLC memory. Unlike other SSDs tested to date, the E3000s was able to provide great low 4K random write performance of 112MB/s, surpassing that 100MB/s 4k random write plateau that has eluded so many others."
