IN WIN BUC Mid-Tower Case Review
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 10:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That case would be the IN WIN BUC. IN WIN's concept for the BUC is "strong shield". They get this idea from its black SECC steel build and hard looking design. The BUC comes with many nice and innovative features for any builder. For cooling, the BUC comes with three 12cm fans. One on the front, top, and rear of the case. There are three 5.25" and one 3.5" drive bays. For internal storage, the BUC can hold five drives of either 3.5" or 2.5" with their device converter cage. The cage also holds four Hot-Swap modules, negating the need for extra SATA cables and conserving room."

Radeon HD 6950
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 8:33P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS has sent us their version of the Radeon HD 6950 to run through the paces today. The ASUS HD 6950 2GB is factory overclocked right out of the box by 10MHz, which really is not anything to write home about, but it’s there nonetheless. ASUS does include their voltage tweak software to help gain a better overclock, which we aim to attempt as we have in all of our reviews. The ASUS HD 6950 is also fitted with a non-reference, full aluminum cover to help dissipate heat better. The HD 6950 comes with a dual BIOS option from the factory, allowing users to use a BIOS from another manufacturer if they wanted, or just have an overclocked BIOS and an ASUS stock factory BIOS. But enough with the niceties, let’s get on to the real reason everyone is here – testing!

The Radeon HD 6790 1GB
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 8:33P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For the majority of gamers though, that doesn't really matter; what does is how much gaming power you can get for your hard-earned (or lazily acquired) local currency. In that regard, the Radeon HD 6790 1GB is a graphics card that puts even more pressure on NVIDIA and its GTX 500-series than it had before and leaves AMD as our favorite option for $150."

AMD Radeon HD 6790 1 GB
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 8:32P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today AMD is releasing their new Radeon HD 6790 which is targeted at the $150 segment that recently saw some love from NVIDIA in form of their GTX 550 Ti. AMD's new card uses the same GPU as the more powerful HD 6850 and HD 6870, so it will be interesting to see where it stands and whether it can defeat NVIDIA's latest offering.

AMD Radeon HD 6790 graphics card
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 8:32P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA nicely summed up this year’s first quarter with GTX 550, which seemed like a great competitor against Radeon HD 5770. Everything would have been perfect for the Americans if AMD hadn’t already planned the counterattack for the very beginning of the second quarter, or to be precise, 5th April. The new Radeon is named HD 6790 and is somewhat of a modification, or a weakened version of, Radeons HD 6850/6870, based on the Barts GPU. As such, this model is based on the VLIW5 architecture, which is somewhat old and doesn’t belong to the truly high-class Radeons; all chips from the Cayman family are based on VLIW4 (Very Long Instruction Word). Besides, the Barts chip located in HD 6970 has been weakened in order to replace the already obsolete HD 5770...

More compact, quieter but still more powerful - that is what the Sapphire Edge-HD aims to deliver. The Mini-PC boasts the new ION2 chipset along with an Atom N510 dual-core processor. We open the power efficient system up to see what else makes it tick. Does the Edge-HD have what it takes to stand out in the crowded Nettop market?

NVIDIA Interview: Tegra 2 and Project Denver - March 31, 2011
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 8:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Paul at HiTech Legion chats with Nick Stam, NVIDIA technical marketing director and Bruce Chan, senior PR manager of Tegra 2 to discuss the past, present and future of Tegra. With the announced Tegra roadmap outlining the creation of powerful ARM-based, multi-core, ultra low-power processors that are significantly faster than anything the tech industry could have imagined, how much will the lines be blurred between desktop and mobile computers in the future? How far is NVIDIA willing to push the performance envelope of sub-1W computing?"

Posted by: STAFF
Most motherboard makers, including Asustek Computer, Micro-Star International (MSI), Gigabyte Technology and ASRock, have posted strong sequential revenue gains in March 2011 due largely to deferred buying of Intel's Sandy Bridge-based motherboards, according to industry sources.

Seagate GoFlex 1TB External Drive for Mac
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 7:20P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Once again, we are quite pleased with the overall performance of a Seagate GoFlex product. Seagate is clearly hoping the GoFlex for Mac will fill one of the only real voids left in the GoFlex lineup, and at the same time provide a product targeted directly at Mac users. While their other products do work with OS X out of the box, the others are not optimized for the Mac platform.

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.
