Sapphire Pure Platinum Z68
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 4:17P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The premium motherboard market is dominated by a handful of established companies, and Sapphire isn't one that really comes to mind when discussing new products. However, Sapphire has produced AMD motherboards, and is coming along on the Intel side, as the Platinum Z68 is their latest foray into the market. Sporting sleek styling and good features, this motherboard certainly looks the part. But it's in for a very tough fight against some established companies. Can the Pure Platinum Z68 measure up?”

x264 HD Benchmark 4.0 is here
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 4:17P | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is the improved version of the x264 HD Benchmark 3.0 benchmark which had become a standard CPU benchmark for Tech ARP as well as many other hardware enthusiasts. The new x264 HD Benchmark 4.0 ups the ante by using the latest r1913 x264 encoder as well as other changes under the hood. This makes the x264 HD Benchmark 4.0 the new best tool for testing the full capabilities of modern multi-core, multi-threaded processors. Do note that due to the changes, the results from x264 HD Benchmark 4.0 are NOT comparable with results from older versions of the benchmark. In addition to the release of the benchmark, we will be compiling benchmark results for this new version. So please contribute your new benchmark results to this project!

Alienware M18x
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 4:16P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Alienware M18x desktop replacement laptop offers a huge 18-inch display, fantastic performance and high-end internal specifications. Behind a rather bland design, however, there is an Intel quad-core CPU, a massive 16GB of memory and dual Nvidia GTX 580M video cards.”

Logitech N600 Touch Lapdesk
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 4:15P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Logitech has once again extended and expanded their laptop Lapdesk accessory lineup. This time, instead of adding in speakers or cooling fans, or other miscellaneous features, their latest creation comes with a much more usable feature: a large 5" pullout touchpad. The N600 Lapdesk still is designed to protect you from the heat of your laptop when you are not at a desk by bringing the "desk" to you, but by including a touchpad you no longer need to attach a mouse and literally have a more all in one solution. This is the theory behind the Logitech N600 Lapdesk. Does the reality align with the theory or is it another product which needs to go back to the drawing board?

Thermaltake Level 10 GT Case Review
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 4:15P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The original Level 10 went down well worldwide (and my editor actually used one in his recent M-Power mod – click here for more info), so the Level 10 GT should hopefully be even better! The only complaint that most users had of the original Level 10, was the lack of space – the GT is here to address that."

Asus HD 6870 DirectCU 1GB GDDR5 Video Card Review
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 4:14P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ASUS HD6870 DirectCU brings a very refined aspect to video cards. In addition to the Radeon HD 6870 GPU overclocked to 915MHz, the ASUS HD6870 DirectCU brings a slew of ASUS exclusive features and technologies. Naturally, the card is fitted with ASUS’ DirectCU cooling system, complete with three direct contact copper heat pipes and aluminum fin array, dust repellant shroud and variable speed fan. Under the shroud, you will find ASUS’ exclusive Super Alloy design featuring the highest quality capacitors, MOSFETs and chokes for improved performance, lower heat and longer life. It also needs to be noted that the stronger nature of Super Alloy technology certainly helps in overclocking, especially with the HD6870 DirectCU’s unlocked voltage in the BIOS. To aid in overclocking ASUS includes their Smart Doctor software to assist you in easily and safely overclocking your GPU."

Western Digital Scorpio Blue 1TB Mobile Hard Drive Review
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 4:14P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mobile warriors have their advantages, but storage isn't one of them. It's not uncommon to see desktop users with multiple TBs of hard drives, but notebook users tend to suffer with 500 or 750GB options. Western Digital, with its 9.5mm tall WD10JPVT, wants to change that - and trust us when we say that it's well worth looking into.

AMD’s Llano A8-3850 and A6-3650 APUs
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 4:13P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year, AMD made it very clear that they wanted to challenge Intel in several market segments. The first fight was over low power, light weight laptops with the launch of the AMD E-350 which took on the Intel Atom. It was a grueling match that ended in a split decision for AMD. Now it is time for the mainstream desktop championship to be put on the line against AMD’s new A8-3850/A6-3650 APUs and their new corner man, the Hudson FCH. Does AMDs new contender have what it takes to take the title belt?

Sharkoon Fireglider Black gaming mouse
     Thu, Aug 18 2011 | 4:13P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Sharkoon Fireglider is the most tragically whimsical name I’ve ever heard a mouse being given. When your friends ask you, “So, what mouse are you using?”, the answer “Sharkoon Fireglider” is not one you can give with a straight face. Don’t bring up its slogan either, “Procure the best advantage possible with the SHARKOON FireGlider!” That’s right, “procure” it. After they’ve stopped laughing and trolling, you can hit them with your riposte: “It’s actually pretty good! It’s got a high DPI sensor, a triple click button and it’s programmable.” And if they give it a go, they’ll see behind the silly name is a surprisingly competent gaming mouse. Sharkoon’s website has a boatload of features and specifications, so I may as well put them down here as anywhere:"

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.
