A Futurelooks News Flash - G.Skill Trident 2400MHz 8GB DDR3 Dual Channel Memory Kit Review
     Tue, Jul 03 2012 | 9:13P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Its been a while since I put a few elite overclocking DDR3 memory kits to work on any these pimped out Intel Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge test systems. While overclocking the memory itself wont give you any gains, overclocking the CPU at the same time is what allows you to use that bandwidth. You have to do both and thats when a memory kit like the G.Skill Trident 2400MHz DDR3 8GB dual channel memory kit comes in handy, offering you the best IC modules which also allow for tighter memory timings, if you choose to downclock them, for better system response. Lets see how tight and fast we can get these modules to run today. *"

Posted by: STAFF
The Sony VAIO E15 looks to stand out from the rest of the laptop crowd by having a more stylish design. It also has a competitive price at $500 as well as all the latest in connectivity options and a comfortable keyboard. Performance is good, but we wish a faster hard drive option was available."

SSD NEWS: LSI SAS 9207-8i PCIe 3.0 HBA Overview - Eight Crucial M4 SSDs Pushed to 4.1GB/s Performance
     Tue, Jul 03 2012 | 4:05P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
LSI`s new PCIe 3.0 HBA and MegaRAID offerings promise oodles of extra performance above and beyond the limitations imposed by PCIe 2.0. While the new Gen3 MegaRAID solutions are still a ways out, we happen to have a Gen3 HBA here. This particular 9207-8i is destined for our enterprise evaluation system, but since it`s a new product and all, we thought we`d hook up some SSDs and see if performance is really better as a result. Can we break the 3GB/s limit of the PCIe 2 LSI 9211? Can we get some great scaling off of eight Crucial M4 256GBs on 000F firmware?"

Super Talent USB 3.0 Express RC8 50GB Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Jul 03 2012 | 4:05P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In terms of performance, while we never did get the drive to hit the rated 270MB/s reads and 220MB/s writes, we came very close. Still, it`s very cool to be able to plug into a USB 3.0 port and move huge amounts of data with ease in no time at all. We were able to stream high-definition video with nary a hiccup. Even with the turbo software in normal mode, this drive cooks but with turbo enabled it`s simply amazing..."

Gigabyte eSport LAN Wrap Up Coverage
     Tue, Jul 03 2012 | 2:08P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last weekend we attended Gigabytes first ever eSports LAN Tournament. This gathering was designed to be a massive PC gaming event that features eight of the worlds best eSports teams going head to head in Riots League of Legends and a 24 player StarCraft 2 invitational tournament. The event was held over a three day period on the campus of California Polytechnic University of Pomona and hosted by Gigabyte (of course!) with appearances by some top pro-gamers. The event also hosted the LANFest sponsor the Bring Your Own Case where enthusiasts participated in mini-tournaments with tons of prizes. And when we say tons, it seemed like they were giving stuff away every hour in both the LANFest pavilion and Tournament area."

Kensington Absolute Power Dual USB Wall Charger Review
     Tue, Jul 03 2012 | 12:58P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Summer is perhaps the only time of the year when pretty much everyone goes on vacations and if you are like me and have more than just one cell phone, MP3/4 player, Bluetooth headset that means taking along with you a large number of AC power chargers and chances are that you will probably forget at least one of those in the process (i know i have in more than just one occasion). Kensington is a well-known brand name mainly because of the countless number of devices out there (including notebooks, LCD screens, NAS devices, HDD enclosures etc.) that feature their security slot but their product line is actually very long and also includes several gadgets that can help make your life a lot easier. One of those gadgets is their Absolute Power Dual USB Wall Charger which we have here with us today.
