Posted by: STAFF
"AMD is announcing today a new FirePro workstation graphics card.

The FirePro V4900 will retail for less than $200 USD while offering up some nice capabilities for the price.

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - PEG/Onchip VGA Control
     Sat, Sep 10 2011 | 8:26A | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the PEG/Onchip VGA Control BIOS setting."

Kingston 32GB microSDHC Mobility Kit
     Wed, Sep 07 2011 | 9:03A | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"You have to ask yourself if you need the microSD format. If you don't, then consider an SD card instead, as they're usually a little less expensive than the microSD format to begin with since the flash memory used isn't as dense. If you do need the microSD format, then ask yourself if you need 32GB. If you do, then consider other microSD offerings. Then ask if you need the speed. If you do, again look elsewhere. Other less expensive class 10 microSDHC cards are available."

ASUS Matrix GTX 580 Platinum
     Wed, Sep 07 2011 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this review we will look at some of the unique features that separate the ASUS Matrix GTX 580 Platinum graphics card from a reference card and how can users utilize those features. This card retails for $529.99, which is only 20 dollars more than the DirectCU II card and about 70 dollars more than a reference card, which retails for about 459.99.

HornetTek Slipper U3 External Dock
     Wed, Sep 07 2011 | 9:01A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Slipper is a unique design for an external enclosure/dock, so we will be testing it to make sure everything works as anticipated. The Slipper name was clearly given to this dock because of the fact that it looks like a slipper; this design also makes it surprisingly easy to slide a hard drive into place. The fact that the dock supports hot swapping also makes it quite easy to change out hard drives even when the device is connected.

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.

Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 Intel X79 LGA2011 Motherboard In-Depth Review
Jul 27 | Motherboards
Rating:
The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
