REVIEW: Kingston HyperX 3K RAID 0 @ PureOverclock
     Mon, Jun 18 2012 | 11:08P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we recently reviewed the Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD, we came away very impressed. Today we have another review with this product, but instead of just one drive, today we`re going with two in RAID 0. We`re speed junkies just as much as the next person, so seeing a pair of these SandForce-based drives should really induce some drool-worthy performance. Think one is fast? Wait until you see a pair of these in action."

12-Core ARM Cluster Benchmarked Against Intel Atom Ivy Bridge AMD Fusion
     Mon, Jun 18 2012 | 4:08P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week I shared my plans to build a low-cost, 12-core, 30-watt ARMv7 cluster running Ubuntu Linux. The ARM cluster that is built around the PandaBoard ES development boards is now online and producing results... Quite surprising results actually for a low-power Cortex-A9 compute cluster. Results include performance-per-Watt comparisons to Intel Atom and Ivy Bridge processors along with AMD`s Fusion APU."

REVIEW: Sapphire 7950 FleX @ PureOverclock
     Mon, Jun 18 2012 | 11:59A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What`s so special about a FleX graphics card? Well, FleX is unique to Sapphire and it supports Eyefinity out of the box with no need for expensive DisplayPort screens or adapters. The tech is built directly into the card itself, independent of the monitors being used. We`ve seen a few other FleX models, but most of them have struggled to push respectable framerates at extreme resolutions across three displays. But this 7950 takes advantage of the increased horsepower from AMD`s latest generation, with a more powerful GPU and a boost of GDDR5 memory to 3GB, looking to remedy that problem and bring better gaming experiences to the diehard enthusiasts."

Patriot Viper Extreme Division 4 16GB DDR3 Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Jun 18 2012 | 9:55A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Patriot stormed the market recently with their Pyro and Wildfire SSD`s so when they asked us to sample their X79 quad channel memory kit we weren`t about to say no, especially if the performance matches the blistering pace set by the solid state drives we reviewed here. If you are reading from the U.K you could be forgiven in thinking that Division 4 means this kit is somehow inferior to other memory kits however, the Division 4 moniker is simply an evolution from the Division 2 dual channel kit with this kit being quad channel. If you were in any doubt of the performance then the addition of Viper and Extreme to the product title should leave you with no reservations that this is a seriously fast memory kit."
