David vs Goliath: Can AMD Stand and Fight? @ Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Feb 02 2012 | 11:15P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Desktop computing is beginning to see its territories being conquered piece by piece. Over the last few years a new realm has risen from the sand and it is called mobile computing. At first this realm struggled due to the lack of acceptance, which was mainly based on the price paid to acquire such technology. Over the last two years we have seen these mobile realms gain acceptance due to the fact that many of the well-established desktop realms are moving forward to conquer new lands. The desktop realms that have made the move are beginning to see rewards while those who have not are beginning to suffer as their land becomes devoured.///"

A Futurelooks News Flash - Patriot Memory Division IV Viper Extreme 16GB 1600MHz DDR3 Quad Channel Memory Kit Review
     Thu, Feb 02 2012 | 6:47P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We were all surprisingly content with dual channel memory performance when Intel announced triple channel memory support in Gulftown processors. Then just as we got use to the high-speed triple channel performance being the most efficient method for delivering epic amounts of memory bandwidth for big projects, Intel again changed the way content creators get their work done by giving us quad channel memory support inside Sandy Bridge-E processors. But what exactly is the benefit of all those channels? Let?s see if the Patriot Memory Division IV Viper Extreme Memory Kit has those answers!"

[Affiliates News] Thermaltake SMART 630W Power Supply Review @ APH Networks
     Thu, Feb 02 2012 | 4:45P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Right now, I am facing a couple of problems. For one thing, I got a communications essay due on Friday. This assignment is for a course that all engineering students here at the University of Calgary is forced to take. Secondly, I have to finish this review by Thursday night as well, which, if you are reading this article right now, is probably some time in the past already. You know, it is Tuesday as I am writing this introductory paragraph. With that in mind, allow me to have some time to rant. The thing is, I don`t see a reason why I need to take that course -- my English is just fine the way it is. As Ralph Wiggum would have said, Me fail grammar? That`s unpossible! But regardless of how unpossible it is for me to fail grammar (My editors tend to disagree), there are two certainties of life: One is death, and the other is taxes. If taxes are a burden to you, sometimes, we just need to reduce spending on things we want, but are not necessarily needs. A couple of weeks ago, we have taken a look at the Thermaltake SMART 730W power supply. The SMART series is a value oriented line of PSUs designed to be not only budget friendly, but also eco-friendly. But the thing is, not everyone needs 730W. To cater to those who only need a power supply that delivers a moderate amount of juice, what we have here at APH Networks this morning is the 630W version in the same product line. With an extra rated 30W and $5 cheaper than the PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III 600W after mail in rebate at press time, how does it step up? Read on to find out!"

SSD NEWS: MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 128GB mSATA SATA 2 SSD Review
     Thu, Feb 02 2012 | 4:39P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our evaluation today will be a detailed analysis of the MyDigitalSSD 128GB 50mm `Bullet Proof` mSATA SSD and the price point ( a mere $179.99) and timing of this SSDs arrival couldn`t be better. Considering the latest entries of laptops with dual mSATA/HDD storage access along with the first round of new Ultrabook family releases, mSATA SSDs are making an impression in a big way. Their low price point is vital to upcoming Ultrabook releases and consumer availability is a huge plus."

OWC DIY Solid State Drive Upgrade Kit Review @ circuitREMIX
     Thu, Feb 02 2012 | 2:35P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our past Solid State Drive Roundup, we found that the performance offered by SSDs is nothing short of phenominal. Apple, a company that prides itself in its focus of customer experience knows this, and as a result offers the availability of SSDs across it`s Mac computing product line. However when looking at its MacBook Pro line, the cost of configuring an Apple built-to-order SSD powered notebook is steep. Apple offers 128GB, 256GB and 512GB SSD storage upgrades at the prices of $200, $600 and $1200 respectively (as per the Apple Store in Canada). Luckily there are vendors like Other World Computing who specialize in providing products and upgrade solutions catering towards Apple users. Their offering which we will be examining in this article is a full SSD upgrade solution for Apple notebooks."

Samsung 470 Series 128GB SSD Review
     Thu, Feb 02 2012 | 12:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this review at ocinside.de the Samsung 470 Series 128GB SSD is compared against some SSDs of ADATA, Crucial, Mach Extreme Technology and OCZ. Since it is a SATA II SSD, it surely will not be able to keep up with the top 6 Gb/s drives, but let us take a look at some benchmark results, to see what Samsung can get out of the 30nm memory in combination with their Samsung controller.

Seagate Barracuda 3 TB Hard Drive Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Thu, Feb 02 2012 | 10:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most enthusiasts will favor SSDs for their main boot drive rather than a mechanical hard drive thanks to the vast performance benefits available. However, there is still a large market for high performance mechanical drives which offer a much larger capacity for storage of large files. Today we are going to look at the latest Barracuda hard drive from Seagate, which offers no less than 3 TB of storage space."

A Futurelooks News Flash - GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD5 AM3+ ATX Motherboard Review
     Thu, Feb 02 2012 | 9:39A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Futurelooks checks out a solid AMD board from GIGABYTE ... * * *GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD5 AM3+ ATX Motherboard Review* It was a busy end of the year with all the new product releases and announcements. We saw the release of the new AMD FX processor lineup which did not fair well overall, but still serves me well in my personal rig. However, a CPU is only as great as the motherboard to which you pair it. While many sites used the AMD issued ASUS Crossfire V 990FX boards for their initial reviews (a great board I might add) we were able to use something different for our tests. The GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD5 we found to be a very competent board, but let?s take a closer look to find out what else this motherboard brings to the table."

SSD NEWS: Samsung SSD SM825 400GB Enterprise SSD Review - 3Gbps eMLC Data Center Edition
     Thu, Feb 02 2012 | 9:22A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In reviewing the Samsung SSD SM825 Data Center Edition 400GB eMLC solid state drive, we understand that we have wandered off the beaten path of normal consumer reviews but there are some things in this SSD that will just grab your attention. Although it`s interesting to see that Samsung has chosen its own premium eMLC NAND flash memory in the SM825, we believe that it is the total write endurance that truly stands out in this enterprise class SSD."

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.
