[Tech ARP] The NVIDIA Ninja Graphics Tech Report
     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 4:27P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After a rather long hiatus, NVIDIA has finally launched their Kepler microarchitecture and its flagship graphics card, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680. Amongst Kepler`s many new features and improvements is the NVIDIA GPU Boost Technology, which gives the GeForce GTX 680 a further boost in its performance by dynamically overclocking it for apps that aren`t so graphics intensive. However, many gamers are wondering - why would you need to further overclock the GeForce GTX 680 for games that aren`t graphics intensive? The GeForce GTX 680 should have no problem delivering frame rates in excess of 60 fps for such games. So there is really no need for GPU Boost. Well, apparently, NVIDIA has something up their sleeves for Kepler-based graphics cards - the NVIDIA Ninja Graphics Technology!"

MSI Radeon HD 7770 1GB OC Edition Video Card Review
     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 4:25P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we moved away from the single GPU performance via the XFX HD 7770 Black Edition S Super Overclocked 1GB and checked out the CrossFire performance via Sapphire we saw a bit of light at the end of the tunnel thanks to some awesome CrossFire scaling. The issue continued to be the price of the setup, though. With some strong overclocks out of the box, we wonder what kind of overclocking potential we have with the model. Today we`ll be finding that out exactly via the help of the MSI Radeon HD 7770 1GB OC Edition video card. There are of course a few things we need to do before we cover the overclocking side of things."

MSI Radeon HD 7950 Twin Frozr III 3GB Overclocked Video Card Review
     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 4:25P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Considering we`ve seen the company jump fairly quick into the Twin Frozr cooling setup, we figure it was simply because they were hard at work making something that was going to stand out. The Twin Frozr cooler has always been one of our favorite coolers, especially if you`re looking exclusively at dual slot cards. How`s the beloved Twin Frozr III cooler go with the new 28nm HD 7950, though? Well, there`s only one way to find out and we want to make sure we can see what it`s really made out of which can only be done one way, overclocking!"

MSI Z77A-GD65 Ivy Bridge Motherboard Preview @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 4:25P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI Z77A-GD65 is a sharp looking board. I wouldn`t base a purchase on the look, but the blue and black color combination is sharp. The all black look is overdone lately, and while red and black looks good. The blue and black color combination is much more subtle and less contrasting, but still looks great. The overall layout of the MSI Z77A-GD65 is quite good. The Easy Button 3 onboard buttons are out in the open and easy to access even inside a PC case, the SATA ports and SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports all come out parallel to the PCB so it will make cable management a breeze..."

NEWS: ASUS Zenbook SSD Review - Not Necessarily SandForce Driven Shows Significant Speed Bump
     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 4:25P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If we told you that we spent $2400 to right a wrong in proving something that you as a consumer should be aware of, would you believe us? This report closely examines the ASUS Zenbook. Within the `Zen`, ASUS may provide either of two SATA 3 SSDs, these being the AData `SandForce Driven` XM11 or the Sandisk U100. There is no price difference between the two, the product number is the same and the consumer has no way of knowing which they will receive. The performance drop between the two is somewhat unbelievable, however, and we thought this report important enough to invest in one of each Zenbook to educate the consumer on the reality of their potential Zenbook purchase."

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - FIXED Memory Size
     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 4:23P | 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 FIXED Memory Size setting."

XFX Radeon HD 7870 Black Edition 2GB Video Card Review
     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 4:22P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Black Edition series from XFX has served us extremely well since the launch of the new HD 7000 series this year. We saw XFX come out strong with the HD 7970 version which was then followed up with the HD 7950 version. After that we saw the HD 7770 get the same treatment, but unfortunately the HD 7770 on a whole hasn`t been our favorite model due to the current price point it hits at. Today it`s time to check out the HD 7870 version of the Black Edition card and see how it goes."

The competitively priced Western Digital My Book Live Duo is a two-drive network attached storage (NAS) device that offers an astounding 4TB of storage capacity. It`s very easy to use and offers speedy file read times, but it does lack some features and the latest USB 3.0 connectivity."

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.
