Sapphire Radeon HD 6750 1GB Video Card Review
     Mon, Jul 04 2011 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Today we will be taking a look at a $100 video card that sits between the Barts and Turks chipsets from AMD. This of course fills the gap between the two and makes for a good lower to mid-range card that will get you in to the DirectX 11 game and provide you with some great features. The card I am talking about is the Radeon HD 6750. The card we received from Sapphire is identical to the reference AMD version so it has a core clock of 700 MHz, memory clock of 1150 MHz, 720 stream processors, and support for up to 5 displays. Let’s check it out!"

Total War: Shogun 2 DirectX 11 Performance Testing
     Sun, Jul 03 2011 | 4:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A little more than a month ago we told you about the AMD Gaming Evolved Campaign as well as the new game title called Total War: Shogun 2. We took a look at the Shogun 2 and ran some benchmarks using DirctX 9. At the time of release Sega promised a soon to follow patch that would include DirectX 11 compatibility as well as a handful of other killer features. The patch has arrived and we have taken to the benchmarks again to see how the patch has helped or hurt the performance of Total War: Shogun 2. Read on to see what we found out.

Duke Nukem Forever Performance Test
     Sun, Jul 03 2011 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Duke Nukem franchise has deep roots in PC gaming history. The trash-talking action hero made his debut some two decades ago in 1991 on MS-DOS followed by a sequel in 1993. Three years later, Duke Nukem 3D took the industry by storm. Then as you know, Duke Nukem Forever took 14 years until it finally arrived. With a mixed bag of reviews and criticism from various angles, Duke Nukem Forever's long history of controversy will not rest for now. But as usual this performance review is less about DNF's gameplay and more about showing you how the game runs on a broad spectrum of today's (and yesterday's) PC hardware.

Sapphire Radeon HD 6670 Ultimate Edition 1GB DDR5 DX 11 Video Card Review
     Sun, Jul 03 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"One of those products is the Sapphire Radeon HD 6670 Ultimate Edition. The 6670 Ultimate includes two special features that differ from a traditional 6670. Those being the "Ultimate" passive cooling, and a key to Dirt 3. Under the hood the 6670 Ultimate is no different from a stock version. The core clock speed is set at 800MHz while the memory speed is set at 1000Mhz. Onboard is 1 GB of DDR5 memory. The 6670 comes with 480 stream processors and a 40 nm chip. The interface includes a single HDMI, Display Port, and Dual-Link DVI input. All of the usual 6000 series features apply such as DX 11, Eyefinity, OpenGL 4.1, UVD3, and AMD App acceleration."

Patriot Memory Flash Drive Shootout – USB 2.0 vs. USB 3.0 Quad Channel vs. USB 3
     Sun, Jul 03 2011 | 12:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not all USB flash drives are made alike. There are reasons why you can find el cheapo knockoff brand drives in the bargain bin, as well as seemingly similar flash drives for much more money. And this goes well beyond just having more storage. And that’s where we find ourselves today. In this USB flash drive shootout, we take a look at the difference between USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, as well as the difference between having quad-channel and 8-channel. To help minimize other variables, we’ve stuck with just one brand: Patriot Memory.

PowerSkin iPhone 4 Silicone Case with Built-in Battery Review
     Sun, Jul 03 2011 | 9:03A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"There are literally hundreds, if not thousands of smartphone covers and cases on the market, but probably none as functional as the one I am going to tell you about now. You sometimes see almost every second person in a group with an iPhone 4 and they personalise it more times than not with a case of their preference. What you rarely see, though, are folks getting around with powered cases. What we are looking at today is an iPhone 4 case that comes with a built-in 2000mAh battery. It's from a relatively new company called PowerSkin and they claim to provide twice the amount of power with their iPhone 4 silicone case using patented XPAL Power technology."

OCZ Vertex 3 240GB Max IOPS Edition SSD Review
     Sun, Jul 03 2011 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We've done quite a few SSD reviews this year and frankly, some of the drives we test seem like carbon copies of the one before save for different branding. Performance tends to be relatively equal, at least within the standard deviation of the benchmarks used and it's rare for a drive to really stand out. The Vertex 3 MI is one of those rare drives that, in a sea of virtual SSD homogeny, distinguishes itself with all around performance perceptively better than any other single SATA III interfaced drive we've tested to date - except maybe the..."

Steelseries Switch Gaming Keyboard
     Sun, Jul 03 2011 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Steelseries Shift almost gave us a headache (in a good way), simply because of the vast options and customizations available with it. The interchangeable keysets really put this board in a class of its own. Having the macros keep track of time delays between keystrokes is another great feature built into the software for the Shift. The software was very user friendly and easy to navigate. The ergonomic wrist pad and the three levels of height adjustment should make using it comfortable for hours.

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.
