NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 680 (Kepler) 2GB Reference Card Video Card Review
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 3:36P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This industry, like every other industry loves drama. As if we didn`t create enough this week with our slew of Ivy Bridge content that saw us test the Intel Core i5 3570K and Intel Core i7 3770K . If that wasn`t enough we checked out the latest G.Skill RAM and achieved some massive overclocking performance. To finally round it all off we then took the time to overclock both processors to see how that went. Since NVIDIA sent us nothing on the GTX 680 codenamed Kepler - no press deck, no whitepaper, no conference call information, no sample, no NDA date - absolutely nothing - we`re kind of winging it here. Something we don`t really like to do. But when I woke up this morning again with no information from NVIDIA, I was just over it and decided to knock this review over straight away as clearly we weren`t going to hear anything from them. How is that for professionalism? (Ed: Shocking!)"

Motherboard makers drop Intel 7-series motherboard prices
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 2:59P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"First-tier motherboard makers have recently dropped their Intel 7 series motherboard prices to compete for market share, although Intel has not yet officially announced the chipset, according to sources from motherboard makers.

As global copper pricing continues to rise, causing the cost of motherboard components such as printed circuit boards (PCB), to increase, first-tier motherboard makers originally planned to raise their motherboard prices to reflect the increasing costs, but since the motherboard market is already facing a slow down in shipment growth, the makers continue to compete fiercely over price.

Intel is set to announce the rest of its 7 series chipsets including Z77, Z75, H77, Q77, Q75 and B75 with the mainstream Z77 chipset being the major product segment that motherboard makers are competing for."

Marchon3D EX3D Eyewear Review @MissingRemote
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 2:15P | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we stopped by the Marchon3D EX3D booth at CES I have to admit that my reaction was more skeptical than enthusiastic. Sure, their passive 3D eyewear worked, and at $35 a pair was not terrible, but it seemed like a hard sell to the theater-going crowd where the glasses have to compete with ?free?. Now that I have had the chance to try the EX3D AMMO glasses in a real environment, my opinion has changed ? keep reading to find out why. *"

Intel Publishes More Haswell Graphics Driver Code
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 1:34P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While Intel`s Ivy Bridge launch is imminent, and I`m still digging through information concerning today`s Intel Valleyview code drop that brings Ivy Bridge graphics to their next-generation Atom as they do away with PowerVR graphics for their SoCs, more graphics driver code to enable Haswell support has landed this evening.

Huntkey Win7 6600 Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 12:53P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Huntkey Win7 6600, also known as LW-6600HGB, is a 500 W power supply, so we can`t understand where the 6600 in its name comes from. It has an active PFC circuit, but no 80 Plus certification, even though it presented efficiency above 80% on our tests. Let`s check it out."

Xeon E5-2600 vs 3960X vs 2600K - Intel 8 Core vs 6 Core vs 4 Core Gaming Perform
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this article we're going to check what's the difference in real life gaming performance between an Intel octa core, hexa core or quad core CPU. Furthermore in the system there is a Radeon HD 7970 graphics card form XFX. We're curious if there will be a measurable performance gap between these CPUs regarding modern games or if it simply makes no difference if you have four or eight cores in your gaming rig.

Cougar Solution High Performance Midi Tower @ Pro-Clockers
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 11:32A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we will be taking a look at another case from Cougar. The new Solution is not in the same class as the Evolution as it retails for several dollar less than the Evolution. The Solution is a offering that one would look at if they were looking for a more budged-minded case but still has features that would make PC building worthwhile. At the $60 asking price, you will see the Solution has quite a bit to offer."

ASUS GTX 680 2GB Overclocking Review: Win Some Lose Some
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 10:51A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After a long and turbulent few months filled with much speculation and deliberate misinformation, we finally have NVIDIA`s belated response to the the 28nm AMD Southern Islands GPUs - the Geforce GTX 680 (current name, among former identities). In the first of many Keplers that we will be evaluating, we take a look at ASUS`s reference offering and see if its indeed a worthy contender (or pretender) to the reigning king of the hill Radeon HD 7970. Overclocked benchmarks also included!"

Corsair Performance Pro 129GB RAID 0
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Corsair Performance Pro 128GB SSD contains an updated Marvell controller that continues to use a SATA 6G interface, able to take advantage of the insane speeds offered by the new standard. At 128GB capacity, these drives looks to be affordable and fast, satisfying the top performance that enthusiasts crave. Corsair is responding the enthusiast’s growing demand for a top tier drive that performs as well with incompressible data as it does with compressible data by offering the Performance Pro Series of drives. Two of these beasts in RAID 0 should be very impressive.”

PowerColor PCS+ 7870
     Thu, Mar 22 2012 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Pitcairn is the codename for this bourgeois of AMD's graphics card lineup, and it brings the Radeon 7850 and 7870. Today we're interested in the latter, and specifically we're examining the PowerColor PCS+ 7870. It comes with core speeds well over a GHz, and also comes with a customized air cooler to tame the temperatures that often come with higher speeds.”
