Gigabyte E350N-USB3
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 12:45P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Overclocking the E350N was a fairly simple task. I started by bumping the bus speed up in increments of five, then adjusting the voltage until it was stable. I finally settled at 110MHz @ 1.5V (+0.250V), which remained stable during all the testing. In addition, switching the memory multiplier from 5.3 to 6.6 yielded a stable 1333MHz clock on the RAM without any voltage increase. Unfortunately, I could not squeeze any extra MHz out of the GPU without causing instability."

ASUS P8P67 PRO P67 Motherboard Review
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 12:15P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Reviewers are often criticized for the kind of articles we write. I am not talking about those who write so-called reviews where I can literally find more information about the product on the manufacturer's website, but with some shameless self promotion plug in all forms of humility -- even quality pieces of writings (Like the ones we publish here at APH Networks) are no exception. The reason for this does not lie in the hands of the one who writes the review. The reason for this comes down to the nature of each article. It is easy for us to get the latest and greatest computer components for evaluation, and while those reviews are exceptionally popular all the time, what good does it do for the common individual? Not everyone is interested in spending huge amounts of money for the best computer parts in the market. Of course, if you are reading this review, chances are that you are looking for something that is more... mainstream. Not 'low end' or 'cheap', but mainstream, midrange performance -- the most sought after market bracket by all board manufacturers. So don't complain to us that we go Lamborghini all day and ignore all the Hondas of this world, because we specifically wanted the ASUS P8P67 PRO for our review today. Following the brilliant ASUS P8P67 WS Revolution we have taken a look at last week, how well does the P8P67 PRO hold its own against its bigger brother? We've got you covered.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 590: The Dual-GF110 Beast
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia's long awaited Dual-GPU video card is finally here. The GeForce GTX 590 is designed for enthusiast gamers that need the highest graphics performance and image quality from a single video card. The GTX 590 is a DX11 based video card designed to allow users to turn up their graphics settings--including resolution, anti-aliasing, and image quality--without causing excessive performance decreases which would otherwise render games impossible to play. With full control over Nvidia's driver game presets and other graphics features, users can also enjoy image quality customization which would allow them to use up to 64x anti-aliasing with a single GTX 590 and up to 128xAA with two GTX 590s combined for Quad SLI. The user needs to over-ride the application AA through the Nvidia drivers. Once that is done a Multi-GPU 64x AA is possible with a single GTX 590.

Posted by: STAFF
"XFX is releasing their PRO series of power supplies, with single +12 V rail, DC-DC secondary design, and 80 Plus Bronze certification. So far three models were released: 650 W, 750 W, and 850 W. We have already tested the 650 W and the 750 W models, and both proved to have terrific cost/benefit ratios. Let's see if the 850 W model follows the same path."

GIGABYTE T1125N-CF1 11.6-inch Tablet Convertible Notebook Review
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 12:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"What we have here is an 11.6" notebook that measures in at 11.4" x 8.7" x 1.1" and weighs 3.8 pounds. It's a little heftier than you'd expect in an 11.6" device, but that's due in part to the fact that this is no ordinary notebook; it's a convertible. The hinge and touch screen adds a bit of beef to this notebook turned tablet; it would have been nice if they had made it a little thinner to compensate. Because the GIGABYTE T1125N is a convertible tablet, there's a single, chrome-colored hinge under the screen that rotates 180 degrees to the left. The hinge felt very sturdy as this is the third generation of convertible notebook GIGABYTE has produced; they have definitely gotten the quality of the hinge right on this model."

ASUS Radeon 6970 DirectCU II review
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 11:45A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Very few names in the graphics card industry have the balls to take a GPU and then redesign a completely new infrastructure around it. Amongst them ASUS as they took an Radeon HD 6970 GPU... and did just that. They designed a PCB around it, then used a rather sizable cooler and labeled the product EAH6970 DCII/2DI4S/2GD5.

MSI N550GTX-Ti Cyclone II Graphics Card
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 10:45A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently Nvidia released their GTX550 Ti graphics cards to add to the 500 series of cards. This new card is meant to be the replacement for the GTS450 with a price point around $135, however since this is a factory overclocked card with an upgraded cooler, this particular model has a price of $154.99. These numbers are before any mail-in rebates that are offered. The base MSRP of the GTX550 is right around $20 more than that the GTS450.

Thermaltake Max 5G USB Drive Enclosure
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 10:30A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I'm finding it difficult to find anything I would offer up as a suggestion for the Thermaltake Max 5G USB drive enclosure. It supports the latest version of USB while being backwards compatible to previous generations, it provides active cooling with dual 80mm LED fans, it has an integrated support stand, and it has an easy way to turn off the fan's LEDs.

HTC Thunderbolt Android Smartphone Review
     Tue, Apr 26 2011 | 10:15A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HTC was the first manufacturer to provide a 4G phone though a US carrier when it shipped the HTC EVO 4G from Sprint. At the end of last year, HTC promised it would once again be the first to 4G with another carrier. And days later, the company announced the Thunderbolt smartphone with Verizon Wireless. It's been a few months since the announcement, and although there were many rumored release dates for the phone, it only recently became available for consumers to purchase. As the first 4G LTE device in the United States, the Thunderbolt is definitely a hot smartphone that many users can't wait to get their hands on. Not only does it boast of 4G speeds, but it also has a large 4.3-inch display, fast 1GHz Snapdragon processor, plenty of storage space, and the ability to share its fast connection with up to eight Wi-Fi enabled devices through the Mobile Hotspot feature...
