Gigabyte Z77X-UP5 TH Intel LGA 1155 @ techPowerUp
     Fri, Aug 17 2012 | 5:17A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
First out the gate with Thunderbolt at TPU is none other than Gigabyte, with the Z77X-UP5 TH. Using a layout quite similar to its older sister the Z77X-UD5H, the newcomer Z77X-UP5 TH has a few other new features too, and should not be overlooked."

     Fri, Aug 17 2012 | 4:59A | Peripherals | PermaLink

AMD A4-3400 Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Aug 17 2012 | 4:30A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are many people who buy low end desktops and when they do, they hope that they get a rich and hassle free user experience. As CPUs now have arguably reached a competent level in the past few years, the final hurdle was to make the dreaded motherboard IGP obsolete. This is where the A4 Series APUs come in. Low priced dual core CPU clocked at 2.7Ghz paired with a DX11, 160 core Radeon HD 6140D graphics adaptor that promises to deliver performance for the essential and day to day tasks expected of a contemporary desktop PC."

Radeon HD 7950 with Boost vs GeForce GTX 660 Ti review
     Fri, Aug 17 2012 | 4:09A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The updated Radeon HD 7950 with Boost functionality definitely is interesting, opposed to the 800 MHz clocked reference product you`ll see a 5 to 10% performance benefit thanks to a dynamic boost function that now may clock towards 925 MHz. We test the product with the all new Boost function and the reference performance. Also we`ll throw in the results for a reference GeForce GTX 660 Ti to see where the cards are in terms of competition. Read the article here"

MSI GEFORCE GTX 660 Ti 2GB Power Edition Video Card Overclocked
     Fri, Aug 17 2012 | 3:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We overclock our first retail NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 660 Ti and see just how powerful the Power Edition is from MSI when put to the test."

Kingston SSDNow V200 128GB Review
     Fri, Aug 17 2012 | 12:19A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The results are rather all over the board with this SSD. Start up/shut down is very quick and the PCMark Vantage tests show more real world figures. Pairing this with the inherent reliability of Kingston products (especially with this drive geared towards consumers), you get a reasonably quick and reliable SSD for a good price. However, the asynchronous memory gives the drive a little bit of a disadvantage in the low-level synthetic benchmarks. However, the asynchronous memory saves costs, which can in turn allow for a more inexpensive drive."

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 660 Ti Windforce OC
     Fri, Aug 17 2012 | 12:12A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
GIGABYTE has made a name for themselves with very overclockable motherboards and their extremely highly clockable Super overclock graphics card offerings. Coming from this same brand, we have their overclock offering for the GTX 660 Ti."

     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 6:45P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Unlike the GTX 680, 670 and 690 launch, NVIDIA partners have really stepped up and very few, if any GPUs, are hitting the shelves with stock clocks. To represent the first batch of sweet spot GPUs, weve invited EVGA, GIGABYTE, and MSI for a look at their efforts to win you over in the sweet spot GPU segment. Lets see if the NVIDIA GTX 660 Ti is worth the upgrade! *"

[DreamWare Computers] Samsung S27B750V 27 LED Monitor
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 4:09P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Looking to further expand the use of your smartphone through your computer display, Samsung has started including MHL connectivity on some of their newer and higher end displays. MHL, short for Mobile High-Definition Link, is a standard for connecting mobile devices to high definition displays by means of their built-in USB connection. MHL doesn`t require any expensive hardware or software to use - if you have a supporting device and display then all you need is a single cable between the two! Samsung`s most recent display to support both MHL in addition to regular HDMI and VGA inputs is the S27B750V. The S27B750V is one of Samsung`s highest end LED displays and has a price tag to show it. I`m anxious to see if I`ll get my monies worth from this display or if luxury isn`t all it`s cracked up to be."

Under The Hood with Android 4.1, Jelly Bean
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 4:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Google claims Android 4.1, aka Jelly Bean, is the fastest and smoothest version of Android yet.

Acer Iconia Tab A700 Review
     Thu, Aug 16 2012 | 4:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Iconia Tab A700 is Acer's latest update to its Android tablet line-up. Featuring Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and a quad-core processor, the A700's claim to fame is its new 1920 x 1200 pixel, full HD display. The Acer Iconia Tab A700 should look familiar to anyone who has seen or used a 10-inch Android tablet before. The standard slate design measures 259mm x 175.2mm x 10.9in (10.2in x 6.9in x 0.43in) and weighs 1.47lbs. The tablet's dimensions and 16:10 aspect ratio display lend it much more to use in landscape orientation than in portrait -- something that is frequently said about 10-inch Android tablets.
