bequiet! Straight Power E9 CM 680 W Power Supply Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Fri, Aug 12 2011 | 9:00A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The brand bequiet! belongs to the German distributor Listan. This company has released several power supplies with the 80 Plus Gold certification, under the Straight Power E9 series. Five of them (400 W, 450 W, 500 W, 600 W, and 700 W) don`t have a modular cabling system, while three of them do (480 W, 580 W, and 680 W). These models carry the letters CM for Cable Management. Let`s see if the 680 W model is a good option."

Duke Nukem Forever Benchmarks : 3D Vision Tested on all NVIDIA 500 Series Video Cards @Hi Tech Legion
     Fri, Aug 12 2011 | 8:18A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
3D Vision is quite good. This is because one of the main graphical features is the splash on Duke`s sunglasses. When executing an enemy there is blood that will splash on the screen. Even in the intro boss fight there is water that splashes on the screen. While in 3D, those effects pop out very well when the depth is adjusted. As usual with first person shooters, the UI and weapon are also very pronounced. Overall, 3D worked quite well and didn`t cause any issues with gameplay or problems."

Crysis 2: Worlds First DirectX 11 Video Benchmarks & Screenshots
     Fri, Aug 12 2011 | 7:11A | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crysis 2 was released three months back to some disappointment. Despite a generally warm reception on the gameplay front, Crysis 2 was neither the eye-candy fest nor the graphics card stress test some were hoping for. If you recall, Crysis was the definitive real-world stress test back in its day. For quite some time after its release, even the most powerful systems struggled to run Crysis at maximum detail. Crysis 2`s lack of graphical oomph was mainly due to missing DirectX 11 support at launch, which meant that Crysis 2 could not take advantage of the latest technologies such as tessellation. Fortunately, Crytek promised to add DirectX 11 support in a future update, and, three months later, it has made good on its promise. VR-Zone has whipped up some benchmarks, videos and screenshots galore to see Crysis 2 in its full glory!"

AMD FX-8150 Bulldozer On Ubuntu Linux
     Thu, Aug 11 2011 | 11:14P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Two weeks ago AMD introduced the Bulldozer FX-Series CPUs to much excitement, although many were letdown by the initial results, and it was months after showing the first Linux benchmarks of an AMD Dual-Interlagos pre-production system. In the days that followed I delivered some initial AMD FX-4100 Linux benchmarks when securing remote access to a low-end Bulldozer system running Ubuntu 11.04 (and there were also some Linux benchmarks from independent Phoronix readers), but then last week a Bulldozer kit arrived from AMD. The centerpiece of this kit is an eight-core AMD FX-8150 CPU, which is now being used to conduct a plethora of AMD Bulldozer benchmarks on Linux.""

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.
