Llano and the Fusion architecture
     Tue, Jun 28 2011 | 6:15P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD has clearly articulated a software and hardware roadmap for unified CPU and GPU computing at their Fusion Developer’s Summit that has all the right pieces. Llano and Zacate are the first integration steps and focus on reducing overhead by sharing – rather than copying – data between the CPU and GPU. Llano made a number of compromises in favor of time to market, such as using a very mediocre CPU core and relying on memory rather than on-die caches for CPU/GPU communication. However, it still packs the best performance integrated graphics period, and good media decoding. Overall, Llano is a serious improvement for AMD’s notebooks, mostly due to power management, which should be well received by consumers. The trick for AMD going forward is to execute on their vision and consistently deliver compelling improvements in a timely fashion.

ASRock H61M/U3S3 mATX Motherboard - BCCHardware
     Tue, Jun 28 2011 | 6:08P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The H61M from ASRock is based on the Intel H61 chipset and supports the 2nd generation (LGA 1155) Intel i7, i5, and i3 CPUs. This is the first LGA1155 Motherboard we`ve reviewed (we`ve got some more coming in the coming weeks) so we will be comparing this board up against other Intel and AMD motherboards which should be very interesting to see how it can compare to previous Intel chipsets as well as the competition (AMD). . ."

ASUS EAH5550 Review
     Tue, Jun 28 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the EAH5550 ASUS has AMD's low end product in its portfolio that comes with PCB layout made by ASUS themselves. This card is based on the RV870 architecture which has been fully reworked for the entry level market. Never the less we're curious how this thing will perform in our benchmark parcours. For a small teaser: this card proves quite decent and overclocking was a lot of fun.

Motorola XOOM Review
     Tue, Jun 28 2011 | 4:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As most of you may know, up until recently we have mainly focused on computer hardware. Well today we have our first tablet to review, the Motorola XOOM. Whereas most sites will provide you with extremely technical reviews that sometimes include paragraphs of technical jargon you just don’t understand a word of, we’re here to provide you with a high quality review that gives you an overview of the product in general, its hardware, operating system and our overall verdict. With that being said, let’s get down and dirty with the XOOM from Motorola."

ASUS BC-12B1ST Internal 12X BD-Combo Drive Review
     Tue, Jun 28 2011 | 12:01P | Optical Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ASUS BC-12B1ST drive can read a Blu-Ray disc and has the ability to burn data onto a DVD media. The ASUS BC-12B1ST BD-Combo drive can reach read speeds of 12X for BD-ROM discs and 16X for DVD-ROM discs.

Using ASUS’ E-Green technology, the BC-12B1ST BD-Combo drive conserves energy by closing unused drive applications while the Optical Tuning Strategy employed by the BC-12B1ST drive when burning results in excellent error-free burning. Using a SATA interface and being compatible with a Windows operating system, makes the ASUS BC-12B1ST a great addition to your PC-based home theater system."

Sapphire Radeon HD 6950 2GB Dirt 3 Edition Video Card Review
     Tue, Jun 28 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Like the previous Dirt game, Dirt 2, the latest iteration from Codemasters, Dirt 3, is another big release for AMD. While maybe not quite as big as the second one which saw the implementation of DirectX 11, one would argue that this one could be even bigger because of the rave reviews the game has received, making it not only a game that looks good, but also a game that's good to play. So with the release of another high profile game for AMD, we've seen their partners begin to bundle the game in the form of keys with their video cards. While most companies have just added the bundle to the package, Sapphire has instead chosen to create a "Dirt 3" Edition of the card to coincide with the release. At first I thought the "Dirt 3" Edition was just going to be the same HD 6950 we've seen from Sapphire before, but with the inclusion of Dirt 3. Instead, though, we've got a new cooler on hand that looks like it will hit the spot."

Sapphire 6950 DiRT 3 Edition
     Tue, Jun 28 2011 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Sapphire Radeon 6950 DiRT 3 Edition graphics card, as you can surmise, comes with an excellent value-added bonus of including a hot new game title with its latest 6950 model. But it also comes with a custom heatsink, promising lower temperatures and noise levels, as we often see from AMD's biggest board partner. We love a great deal as much as anyone, and the combination of a free game, low noise and temperatures on this latest card from Sapphire leaves us very intruigued. Can it live up to expectations? Let's dive in and take a closer look at the Sapphire 6950 DiRT 3 Edition and found out.”

What makes it even better is that one of our awesome Twitter Followers is going to win this!

While we have to wait a little longer until we can get our hands on the Bulldozer, the launching of the 9 series chipset from various motherboard manufacturers means that the processor should be coming very soon.

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
