Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 OC WindForce review
     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We test the Gigabyte Radeon HD 7970 OC (WindForce) edition. It's a fully fetched R7970 on a customized PCB, it comes factory overclocked for you and next to that they applied their popular WindForce cooler, the one that has a cool number of three active fans. The results are pretty impressive as you'll find out, that factory overclock is boils down to a default clock frequency of 1000 MHz on the GPU core. Next to that the WindForce cooler is able to keep the product under 65 Degrees C, and that's under full load and stress.

     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
VIA Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator of power efficient x86 processor platforms, today announced the world’s first quad core Mini-ITX boards featuring the latest VIA QuadCore E-Series processor. The VIA EPIA-M900 and VIA EPIA-M910 are the first two Mini-ITX boards to feature the 1.2GHz VIA QuadCore E-Series processor, offering enhanced multi-tasking and superb multimedia performance on the lowest quad core power budget for next generation embedded products.

The VIA QuadCore E-Series processor features a highly optimized, energy efficient multi-core architecture, which is natively 64-bit compatible and comes with a host of additional performance features including Adaptive Overclocking. To meet the low power demands of the embedded market, the VIA QuadCore E-Series processor offers industry-leading energy efficiency, with the VIA QuadCore E-Series 1.2+ GHz processor delivering a thermal design power (TDP) of only 27.5W. The distributed power of the VIA QuadCore E-Series processor makes it ideal for handling the most demanding HD video formats for immersive multi-display applications and environments.

“The VIA QuadCore E-Series processor delivers world class performance in the industry’s leading power efficient package,” said Epan Wu, Head of the VIA Embedded Platform Division, VIA Technologies, Inc. “The high performance of the VIA QuadCore E-Series processor makes it the perfect platform for the creation of next generation digital signage displays and embedded projects.”

Measuring 17cm x 17cm the VIA EPIA-M900 Mini-ITX board features the choice of a 1.2GHz VIA QuadCore E-Series processor or a 1.6GHz dual core VIA Nano X2 E-Series processor. Paired with the VIA VX900 MSP, supporting up to 8GB of DDR3 system memory and featuring the VIA ChromotionHD 2.0 video processor, the VIA EPIA-M900 enables the creation of a wealth of innovative next generation digital signage, POS, Kiosk, ATM, home automation, healthcare and media client system design applications.

Rear panel I/O includes a Gigabit LAN port, HDMI port, VGA port, four USB 2.0 ports, one COM port and three audio jacks. An onboard PCIe x16 slot (with effective speed up to PCIe x8) and one PCI slot is accompanied with pin headers providing one dual channel 24-bit LVDS support (including backlight control), an additional three COM ports, a further four USB 2.0 ports and one USB device port, LPC support, 2 Digital I/O, SPDIF out and an SMBus header.

XFX R7770 Black Edition S Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enter the XFX Black Edition. With an improved over-stock clockspeed of 1120MHz on the core (120MHz faster than reference HD7770) and a huge boost on the memory clockspeed to 1300MHz (5200MHz effective), the Black Edition `S` (Super Overclock) arrives pre-overclocked which should give the card a fair boost in performance."

Lenovo ThinkPad T420 Review: Kickin It Old School
     Fri, Mar 02 2012 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You might think that these would be unforgivable sins, but you?d be wrong. In fact, the T420 is perfect for its intended use. This is a work laptop, and that means functionality comes before style. Yes, this laptop is thick and heavy. And no, it?s not pretty. But none of that matters because it?s not part of what the T420 is built for. This is a laptop for people who type for hours every day. It?s a laptop for people who need tons of connectivity. It?s a laptop for people who empathize with George Clooney?s character from Up in the Air because they?ve been there."

?The Canon PowerShot Elph 310 HS is a pocket-size 12-megapixel digital camera with an 8x optical zoom, 1080p video recording and a fun design. It has really good photo quality and lots of shooting options for a compact camera. It does have short battery life, which can limit its use on long day trips.?"

Xigmatek Gigas
     Thu, Mar 01 2012 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Is it a mATX chassis? No! Is it a mid-tower case? No! What is it? It is the Xigmatek Gigas! Too big to be a compact mATX cube, but too compact to be considered a mid-tower. Will the Gigas end up being the Frankenstein of cases, or manage to impress with this new approach?

1144A 4-port USB 3.0 Card.
     Thu, Mar 01 2012 | 12:01P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Upgrade to USB 3.0, they said. You'll get 5Gbit/s, they said. Gah, if only that were indeed the case. Between the bottlenecks of a PCIe x1 interface and shared controller design, most expansion cards are ill-suited for serious storage needs. Thankfully, there is an alternative in sight. Today I'll take a look at the one 4-port USB 3.0 card that doesn't have either bottleneck, the HighPoint RocketU 1144A. One host bus adapter to rule them all? Read on to find out...

Intel Details Digital Radios, Solar-Powered CPUs at ISSCC
     Thu, Mar 01 2012 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's presentations at the International Solid State Circuits Conference (ISSCC) this year are focused on one of the biggest problems facing modern CPU designers—how to improve power efficiency without sacrificing compute performance. Intel isn't just tackling this problem through conventional process shrinks and smaller dies, however; the company detailed multiple new approaches. First up is Claremont, Intel's first chip built to run on Near Threshold Voltage (NTV) technology. Claremont is a bog-standard Intel Pentium that's been transplanted from its original 0.8µm process (that's 800nm) to a 32nm architecture.

'DCS-1130 Missing Features
     Thu, Mar 01 2012 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If our readers are anything like me, they like to keep their devices up to date with the latest firmware. Typically, this is either to fix some bugs that have been found or to introduce some new features to a product. With that said, it is also normal for a company to distribute a changelog which indicates either what changes have been made or what features have been added.

Intel Core i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E Processor Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Mar 01 2012 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink

The Intel i7-3820 Sandy Bridge-E Processor puts the socket LGA2011 Intel Express X79 platform within reach. The i7-3820 has been released at a much more affordable price than it`s $500 and $900 bigger brothers. The i7-3820 still comes with extreme features that place it in the high end category. /"

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.
