The 20 most bizarre and innovative motherboards: 1999 – 2010
     Sat, Aug 31 2013 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since we started Hardware.Info back in 1998, we've probably tested almost 1,000 motherboards. Usually it's not the most exciting piece of hardware, but through the years we've seen some pretty interesting and creative attempts at innovation. In a bout of nostalgia, we took a look back at the most interesting and the most eyebrow-raising motherboards that came across our desks through the years. The desire for innovation is a breeding ground for some some strange and interesting ideas, that's for sure. Some designs pushed the boundaries with innovations that inspired the competition and changed motherboards forever, others should probably have stayed on the drawing board. We picked out 20 that deserve a special mention, motherboards that came out between the years 1999 and 2010. Do you remember the ABIT BP6, AOpen AX3SP Pro Che Che or Gigabyte GA-G1975X?

Splinter Cell: Blacklist Performance, Benchmarked
     Sat, Aug 31 2013 | 4:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Equipped with his iconic night vision goggles and a new counter-terror agency, Sam Fisher has returned to foil another anti-US plot in Ubisoft's sixth Splinter Cell game. Blacklist attempts to find a better balance between stealth and action than its predecessor while reintroducing some franchise favorites. PC gamers can look forward to a typical array of graphics options including TXAA antialiasing, soft shadows, horizon-based ambient occlusion and advanced DX11 tessellation -- all of which we plan to test with nearly two dozen graphics setups and a handful of processors.

Upgrading from Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 to Core i7-4770K @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Aug 31 2013 | 9:50A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We all love doing computer upgrades, but sometimes we have to ask ourselves if a full system upgrade is worth it or necessary. There are times that you may only gain a small percentage of a performance boost, where there are other times that you gain significant increases. Today I am going to compare my original Intel Kentsfield CPU and X38 motherboard to a shiny new Haswell CPU and Z87 motherboard."

SMART Storage Systems CloudSpeed 1000 and 1000E Server Grade
     Sat, Aug 31 2013 | 9:02A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At Storage Vision 2013 in January, SMART Storage Systems made a splash with the announcement of the CloudSpeed 1000 and 1000E enterprise SSDs. We have been patiently waiting for our chance to put these drives through their paces. In SSD time, it felt like an eternity but with our previous experience with their Optimus SSDs, we knew the wait would be worth it. Plus, SMART had a busy summer, as their acquisition by Sandisk was finalized just last week, so we will cut them some slack.

HooToo TripMate HT-TM01 Wireless N150 Router NAS and Power Bank All in One Review @ TestFreaks
     Sat, Aug 31 2013 | 8:04A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today Ive got a little gadget that I think can come in quite handy especially if you travel. The product is called the HooToo TripMate HT-TM01 and it does many things that I think you might be interested in knowing all about. The HT-TM01 is a router, its a bridge, its an access point, its a NAS and its a backup battery for your devices. This little all-in-one will work as a NAS on Android or iOS via an app you can download, or you can access it right from your computer to stream or transfer files back and forth to a USB flash or USB hard drive. To use it as a router you just need to plug in an Ethernet cable and youre basically all set with a wireless network up and running in a few minutes. The battery inside is 5200mAh in capacity so, depending on the device youre charging, you can get plenty of extra talk or play time from it. So read on to learn more about what I think is a handy little gadget "

Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to high end desktop memory, Patriot is not the brand that you would frequently find on the cutting edge of progression. Nonetheless, this maker has proven to be a solid competitor in the mid-range segment of the market. To see if its still there, let us take a look at a recent offering, namely, a 2400C10 set Patriot called Black Mamba."
