[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - PEG Port VC1/Map
     Sat, Sep 29 2012 | 4:07P | 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 *PEG Port VC1/Map *setting."

Review: ASUS Tranformer TF300 @ ocaholic
     Sat, Sep 29 2012 | 11:30A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Transformer Pad TF300T, ASUS has another successor for their Tranformer series. This tablet ships with an NVIDIA Tegra 3 SoC which offers not only a lot of performance but also excels when it comes to power consumption. Furhtermore there is the Transformer`s party piece which is the additional dock that features an integrated keyboard as well as an additional battery pack. Everything put together it seems like a compelling offer."

Review: LaCie Little Big Disk 240 GB @ ocaholic
     Sat, Sep 29 2012 | 11:30A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
LaCie is well known for good looking hight quality peripherals. With the Little Big Disk the manufacturer offers an external drive that offers some serious performance.

Sapphire Radeon Flex HD 7770 GHz Edition Video Card @ Pro-Clockers
     Sat, Sep 29 2012 | 11:30A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It will all come down to that last feature, one that no one else or very few will offer. In this case that feature will be the FleX option only from Sapphire. Just what is FleX? It`s being able to integrate at least three monitors to one GPU. We know just about all AMD cards can do that. But the fact is they can`t do it with having to go and purchase an expensive displayport monitor or buying an active displayport adapter which isn`t cheap either. With the FleX series you can do it without either. And that does for the card we will be looking at today, the FleX HD 7770 GHz Edition."

Posted by: STAFF
Following up on our recent review of the ADATA XPG SX300 mSATA SSD, we are now going to be running a similar analysis of the 256GB version of the same family. We have been curious as to what this particular review would hold, as we had done a review of the MyDigitalSSD SMART 256GB mSATA SSD some time ago and identification of that mSATA SSD displayed that it was a rebranded XPG SX300 256GB device exactly as we are testing today."

     Sat, Sep 29 2012 | 11:30A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This year at FMS 2012, we were met one day by LSI representatives who politely handed us a non-nondescript cardboard box and simply said, Enjoy.

     Sat, Sep 29 2012 | 9:48A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Dominators boast new heat spreaders and newer ICs that should result in some nice performance. The series consist of kits ranging from 8GB to 64GB with frequencies from 1600MHz to an incredible hand-tested 2666MHz.

Fractal Design Define R4 Review @ Vortez
     Sat, Sep 29 2012 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enter Define R4. You will be forgiven for thinking that R4 has many similar characteristics to R3, infact taking the case from an external viewpoint reveals no changes - its inside where the subtle improvements have been made. The case is wider to allow for bigger CPU coolers, longer graphics cards and better cable management. A fan controller has also been integrated to manage the speed of cooling fans within the chassis - all of these features we will be taking a look at as we explore this new offering from Fractal Design."
