XFX Radeon HD 6870 1GB Black Edition Video Card Review
     Sun, Apr 24 2011 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Who would've thought we'd ever be looking at XFX cards based on an AMD GPU? It's been a long time since we've looked at something from XFX. Going through our content archive, it was August of 2007 and the victim was the 9800 GTX+. So much has happened since then, though, and in that time we've seen the Black Edition series created from the company; a series that has had some of the best looking cards around. I say best looking as I haven't had the chance to look at one until today. Today we see if the Black Edition is all bark and no bite, or if its bark is just the entrée to a menacing bite for main."

Sapphire HD5830 Xtreme & HD5850 Xtreme
     Sun, Apr 24 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Overclocking of the cards was pretty decent. Both of the cards were able to increase both the GPU Core and Memory clocks by about 20% over the stock speeds, which is no small feat. The pricing on both of the cards is quite competitive. However, with the price only being $20 apart from each other, I would suggest the Sapphire HD5850 Xtreme over the Sapphire HD5830 Xtreme. You are going to see better results. About a 20% higher score in 3DMark 11 at the 2560 x 1600 resolution at stock speeds."

GeForce GTX 590 SLI review

Posted by: STAFF
We test SLI performance with four GPUs, that's right we place two GTX 590 graphics cards in SLI. The big question of course remains, will quad-SLI actually kick in properly ? As that is what we are talking about; rendering your games for no less than four GPUs. Bare in mind that for today's article we received a very, no extremely beta driver. Not at all optimized 100% just yet. We will offer you a taste of what's to come and what to expect in the future.

GeForce GTX 590 and GTX 590 SLI reviews

Posted by: STAFF
Have a peek at the awesomeness that is the Point of View GeForce GTX 590, and then head on over to the next page where as always, we'll go a little deeper, but not too deep. We'll look at noise levels, power consumption, heat, we'll do a nice photo-shoot and heck why not... an extensive benchmark session to see where this product positions itself, especially compared to the Radeon HD 6990.

MSI CX640 15.6-inch Notebook Review
     Sun, Apr 24 2011 | 12:01P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Sandy Bridge issue no doubt caused problems for motherboard manufacturers, but many forget about the issue affecting notebook ones. With the issue all sorted now, it's time for companies to start releasing notebooks based on the Sandy Bridge chipset. The first one we're looking at comes from MSI and is labelled the CX640, and on the specifications front it does indeed look the goods with an Intel i5-2410M clocked at 2.3GHz on the H65 chipset. We've also got 4GB of DDR3 memory clocked at 1333MHz in the form of two 2GB modules. Graphics comes from NVIDIA with the 520M that carries with it 1GB of GDDR3. Looking at storage, we've got a 500GB Hitachi drive. The screen is quite large at 15.6" and carries with it a 1366 x 768 resolution. Outside of these specifications there's a fair few extras on the CX640. On the left side we've got our power plug, 10 / 100 / 1000 networking port, VGA and HDMI out along with two USB 3.0 ports."

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - SDRAM Burst Length
     Sun, Apr 24 2011 | 9:05A | 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 SDRAM Burst Length BIOS setting."
