Hornettek Viper U3 USB 3.0 External Hard Drive Enclosure Review
     Tue, May 10 2011 | 4:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"USB 3.0 is the future and it’s here now, there’s no doubt it’s fast but there isn’t much yet in the way of pre-built hard drives on the market just yet that can take advantage of its speed. The solution of course is to get an aftermarket enclosure like the one I have today from Hornettek called the Viper. This enclosure is small and well made; I put it up against another USB 3.0 enclosure and found that it actually performs a bit better. "

Sentey Optimus GS-6000 Mid-tower Case
     Tue, May 10 2011 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We have another offering from Sentey and their “Extreme Division” line of cases today. This time we are going to take a look at their GS-6000 Optimus mid-tower case. Previously we looked at the Arvina GS-6400 which came away with top honors. With the Optimus, Sentey looks to be going for a budget version of the Arvina in the mid-tower size. The Optimus comes in two varieties, the GS-6000 which is all black and the GS-6000R with red highlights; we have the former on hand today."

Sennheiser RS 170 Headphones Review @ Tech-Reviews.co.uk
     Tue, May 10 2011 | 3:50P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sennheiser RS 170 Headphones feature a completely wireless system to bring you extremely portable high quality headphones, don`t let the wireless fool you though, the Sennheiser RS 170 Headphones still deliver the highest possible quality by utilising Kleer`s uncompressed digital wireless audio transmission. This effectively enables you to be up to 80 metres away from the transmitter (whilst still in line of sight) and still receive the same high quality audio that we`ve come to know and love from Sennheiser products."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590: Dual GF110s, One PCB
     Tue, May 10 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the years, we have consistently been impressed by cutting-edge dual-GPU powered graphics cards, not only for their relatively high performance, but because of the engineering involved to design, build, and bring the cards to market, in form factors not much bigger than their high-end, single-GPU based counterparts. From the GeForce 7950GX2 to the GeForce GTX 295, or the Radeon HD 3870X2 to Radeon HD 6990, top of the line (for their time) dual-GPU cards have offered performance that’s head and shoulders above rival single-GPU cards of their generation. There have always been some specific issues to contend with, with dual-GPU powered cards, namely power and software support, but by and large they have been the more drool-worthy component level hardware to come through the lab. A couple of weeks ago, we showed you AMD’s latest dual-GPU powered graphics card, the Radeon HD 6990. Sporting a pair of Cayman-class GPUs, 4GB of RAM, and foot long PCB, the Radeon HD 6990 proved to be one heck of a performer. Today, it’s rival NVIDIA’s turn to unveil their latest dual-GPU powered flagship, the brand new GeForce GTX 590...

Palit GeForce GTX 550 Ti Sonic review
     Tue, May 10 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we'll be putting the GeForce GTX 550 Ti Sonic from Palit to the test, armed with a new cooler we expect no noise and decent temperatures. The the card comes factory overclocked as well, and not a little. We'll have a deeper look in the product gallery of course. As stated this card comes factory overclocked, from 900 towards 1000 MHz. Extremely high frequencies... but get this, we'll bring this card towards a whopping 1100 MHz today. Let's have a peek at what the GTX 550 Ti has in store for us.

Auzen X-Meridian 7.1 2G soundcard review
     Tue, May 10 2011 | 12:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a name like X-Meridian 2G, the guys at Auzentech have a tough act to follow, is the design up to the task? Today in the Guru3D Audio Lab we have a brand new Auzentech X-Meridian 7.1 2G, so let's get to it and see if Auzentech can release a new version of a legendary audio card. The original X-Meridian marked a dramatic shift in the market and peoples understanding of these devices. Since the XM was focused on sound and component quality, new users started taking notice of what was actually on their cards instead of just what features they offered.

Phenom II X4 975 Black Edition review
     Tue, May 10 2011 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today two new products are launched by AMD, and here at Guru3D we'll review the fastest one. Let's have a peek first as to what AMD has got prepped for you with the right pricetag. It's that Phenom II X4 975 ‘Black Edition’ we are interested in. Tagged with a price of just 195 USD this puppy is clocked at a nice 3.6GHz and is an unlocked Black Edition processor. And the BEs always offer tremendous overclock potential, BE processors definitely have our preference in terms of tweaking flexibility.

Posted by: STAFF
The proverbial ink has hardly dried on our review of Sapphires HD6870 Flex and we are already introducing another member of the Flex family. That’s because Sapphire is hoping to give everyone the option to go Flex no matter the budget or performance requirements. This also happens to be the first HD6950 to come through our office, finally giving us a chance to check out the performance of AMD’s third in command. Talk about killing two birds with one stone, let’s take a look at the Sapphire FleX HD 6950 2Gb.

Posted by: STAFF
Continuing our spate of Antec case revamp reviews, today we have the baby of the bunch, the Nine Hundred two v3. Sure it’s a few hundred Antec numbers below the Twelve Hundred we reviewed recently, but it’s a lot more than the P193 right? In numbers anyway.

Antec P183 v3 chassis
     Tue, May 10 2011 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"There are some designs in the case world that are iconic, the original Coolermaster Stacker, NZXT’s original Lexa Blackline and certainly Antec’s P183. Today we look at the latest revision of this classic design, the v3. It comes with the same USB 3.0 and SSD mount features as the P193, Nine Hundred and Twelve Hundred, but is this design modern enough to hold its own?"

"For those of you that took a look at the AC Ryan Playon!HD2 1TB and thought to yourself, well that looks great, but I already have a PC full of movies, why do I need one in my lounge too?

Evercool HPK-10025EA Low Profile Cooler Review
     Mon, May 09 2011 | 4:03P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Evercool seems to have hit upon a good cooling design with the HPK-10025EA. Finally a small, low profile cooler has arrived that can really perform better than the OEM unit without breaking the bank. Available online for as little as $25 US, this little heatsink is a very good value, provided you don't expect too much of it, wattwise."
