Palit JetStream GeForce GTX 680 2GB Video Card Review
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 12:13P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We should start to see that all change over the coming months, not only because we have the new GTX 680, but we`ll see NVIDIA fill out the GTX 600 series line over the next few months while we then see their partners offer us fancy new variants of the model. Next up we`ll see the GTX 670 in May of course followed by the GTX 660, 650 and low-end models. Speaking of fancy new variants, though, we didn`t expect to see one this close to launch. Palit has just released their own GTX 680 which falls under the brand new JetStream series. We knew that Palit would come to the party quickly with a fancy new variant, but we can honestly say we didn`t think it would be this quickly with the model only officially launching last week."

OCZ Synapse 64GB SSD Cache Drive Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 11:50A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cache drives like the new OCZ Synapse are the new darlings of the SSD market since -in principle- they have the capability to drastically improve overall system load times without costing an absolute fortune. Unfortunately, there are some issues that are bound to be encountered along the way but the Synapse and its included software are supposed to succeed where other solutions have failed. * *"

Genius DeathTaker MMO/RTS Gaming Mouse @ Pro-Clockers
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 10:37A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This new product comes from their GX Gaming series, it`s the DeathTaker MMO/RTS gaming mouse. Yes, many of the gaming mice on the market are geared toward a specific genre or gaming, mostly MMO and FPS. The common features of the MMO variation is more buttons and a more sensitive laser resulting in a very high DPI rating. And this is just what the DeathTaker gives us. But it takes more than just that to fork out hard earned bucks for a mouse."

Rosewill RK-9000RE Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 10:33A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Rosewill RK-9000`s big selling point are the mechanical Cherry Red MX switches which are very light and linear in operation. If they are not to your liking then the same keyboard is also available in Cherry blue, brown or black switches too so whichever your tactile preference, there is a key switch to suit. Another attraction of the Rosewill keyboard is the price as it costs just $99 which is $10 less than the Corsair Vengeance keyboard we reviewed recently. Note I am talking in Dollars here because at present I could not find this anywhere in the U.K due in part to Rosewill being a brand of NewEgg, perhaps the biggest PC component store State side."

Roccat Kave Headset Review @ Hardware Secrets

Micron RealSSD P400e 200Gb SATA III 2.5 Enterprise SSD @ TestFreaks
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 9:43A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today for review I?ve got another SSD, this time it?s from Micron and it?s an entry level enterprise product. The drive is the RealSSD P400e and it has a capacity of 200gb. This drive is meant to have a low cost but yet perform well in enterprise situations, of course they can be used in home setup as well. It utilizes the SATA III interface for maximum speeds and it?s made to be durable and have a long life."

Kingwin Absolute Platinum 550 W @ techPowerUp
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 9:15A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingwin`s most recent Platinum PSU comes at only $99. Making it the most affordable choice out there if you want to power a typical system the green way, with little power wasted in the PSU. Thanks to a great component design we see record low power consumption, even at just 40W, which is important for systems that are lightly loaded all day."

HP TouchSmart Elite 7320 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HP TouchSmart Elite 7320 is an inexpensive all-in-one touchscreen PC that offers good performance thanks to the Intel Core i5 CPU and 4GB of RAM. It is a fairly standard 22-inch all-in-one PC, so there`s little that it offers to help it stand out from the rest of them on the market."

HIS Radeon HD 7870 IceQ Turbo Overclocked Video Card Review
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 8:46A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest card to get the IceQ treatment from the team over at HIS comes in the form of the HD 7870 IceQ Turbo. When it comes to HIS cards, this is a model that carries our two favorite words. IceQ that lets us know we`re dealing with a new cooler and Turbo which lets us know we`re dealing with a pre-overclocked card. While we`ll get into more details on the overclock soon, because the Turbo clock on offer from the HIS card was similar to that of the PowerColor PCS+ HD 7870 we`ve just looked at, we figured we`d fire up some overclocking software and see how the new HD 7870 goes in the overclocking department; an area we haven`t looked in yet."

HIS Radeon HD 7770 iCooler GHz Edition 1GB Video Card Review
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 8:31A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Firing up 3DMark 11 we ended up with a score of P3580 which is exactly what we`d expect from the HD 7770. It`s not a bad score, but our issue has always been compared to the HD 6870 which sits at a similar price point at the moment, the HD 7770 comes off looking quite overpriced. What was really nice though was the cooler which let the GPU sit at 35c when idle and still quite a cool 51c at load. More surprising, though, was the cooler which came in at 54.4dB at idle and 55.1dB at load. These are good numbers which see this as the second coolest running card and quietest active cooled card we`ve tested recently."

ASRock Z77 Extreme 6 tested with Sandy Bridge @ ocaholic
     Fri, Mar 30 2012 | 8:07A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASRock is also one of the brands that already have Z77 based motherboards in their product portfolio. First of all we take a closer look on of their high-end boards, the Extreme 6. This motherboard waits with a many features and a very nice design. Of course we`re also curious how this board will perform compared to compared to the Z68 based competition."
