OCZ IBIS HSDL Solid State Drive Preview
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we've noted more than once here before, as NAND Flash technologies evolve, SATA will go the way of the dino. It's not going to happen overnight but like its old, spinning hard drive counterpart, the writing is on the wall. The market needs new higher speed interfaces with lower overhead and more direct attachment to native system interfaces. OCZ has been trying its hand at developing PCI Express-based SSDs in an effort to address this requirement. They've been rolling out all new products like their Revo Drive that we looked at recently and the new device we'll be looking at here today. The new OCZ IBIS SSD utilizes a proprietary serial interface that the company has coined "HSDL" for High Speed Data Link and it offers up to 20Gb/sec peak bandwidth over an industry standard SAS connector, which is over three times that of next gen 6Gbps SATA technology. Journey on for all the details and a performance profile of a prototype we've been testing here in the lab...

Editorial: What’s Wrong with the Apple TV?
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Apple, you really let me down. I hope your new OS update will include something that people want and will set you apart. Maybe include Hulu access and playback, or at least being able to watch the network streams of current shows instead of trying to gouge viewers by charging $1 for the latest episode of Glee…you know the same episode that I can watch for free anytime with a browser and laptop. I don’t even like the Apple TV remote as it doesn’t have TV volume, mute, or power so now I have to have my hands on at least two remotes when I'm watching a movie..."

Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 64GB Flash drive is certainly the fastest USB Flash drive that we have ever seen Kingston bring to the market. The move to SuperSpeed USB 3.0 is certainly a welcomed addition to the market and we are very happy to see Kingston enter the USB 3.0 market for the very first time. As more companies enter the USB 3.0 market space it is only to increase competition and that, in turn, drives innovation up and usually pricing down. We hope this will be just the first of many more USB 3.0 products that we see from Kingston this year..."

Scythe Chouriki 2 1000W Modular Power Supply
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Scythe started out in 2002 as a Japanese based company wanting to produce quality products for PC enthusiasts. They hit it off big with their super quiet and super cool Kamakaze CPU cooler. It didn’t take long for them to expand their product line, export products worldwide, and expand their base of operations around the world. Today we are taking a look at the new Chouriki 2 line of power supplies and we have the top of the line 1000W modular PSU on the bench. The Chouriki 2 line boasts large amounts of power, an 80 Plus Silver rating, and near silence, but can the beast we have back up what it boasts? Read on to find out."

AMD Catalyst 10.9 Windows 7 Driver Analysis
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As we roll into the end of September which marks a few things like the end of the third quarter, the start of the new HD 6000 series coming, a new Catalyst driver suite and what could be an end to NVIDIAs very short reign on the mid range video card market, we find ourselves excited about October. From next month onward we should begin to see what we really only know at this point as "Bart", being offered from AMD. I've been practicing the whole AMD thing, trying to get ATI out of my vocabulary, as no doubt the release of the HD 6000 series will almost mean the end of the ATI name, a name we've grown to love (and sometimes hate)."

Team Group Xtreem S1 120GB SandForce Solid State Drive
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The SandForce SSD market has turned into a commodity market; everyone has a SandForce drive out now. The Team SandForce market has peaked and the only thing left for manufacturers to do is drop pricing. As it sits right now, pricing and value added inclusions like longer warranty terms and accessories are giving buyers reasons to pick one drive other another. If you are a company looking to actually make money on a product, introducing a SandForce SSD nine months late isn’t really the way to do it. All logic tossed aside, this is exactly what Team Group is trying to do, but the first drives have yet to hit etail shelves, so we are left with some uncertainties; the kind that make or break a product. As I sit here writing this, I don’t have pricing information or a list of etailers that will be carrying the new Team Group Xtreem S1. What I do know is that a Team Xtreem S1 has the potential to be very popular if Team can get the price under competitor’s current listings."

ASRock P55 Extreme4 (P55 Express) Motherboard
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When Intel launched the Lynnfield CPU and the P55 chipset, it was just as the specifications for SATA 3.0 and USB 3.0 were being finalized. Too much was in the works to change the chipset and to integrate SATA 3.0 and USB 3.0 (not that we can do that yet anyway). This left Intel behind in terms of getting SATA 3.0 to the market. Companies like ASUS, GIGABYTE and MSI were forced to work with Marvell and NEC to bring this to the table. However, in almost all cases you ended up with a pair of SATA 3.0 ports and a pair of USB 3.0 ports. With AMD based boards (at least at the 890 level) you can get up to six SATA 3.0 ports for your HDD enjoyment. The pairing of two and two (SATA 3.0 and USB 3.0) is what you normally get with Intel and their products; at least that is until ASRock dropped the P55 Extreme4 on the market. This board boasts four SATA 3.0 ports and four USB 3.0 ports (two on the back and two on the front). This is in addition to a few other nice features that we are sure will come in handy; items like THX audio, eSATA 3.0, OC DNA and mounting holes to fit both 1156 and 775 coolers."

Quick Review: AOC e2237Fwh 21.5-inch LCD Monitor
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While LED backlit technology has been floating around for a while now, we've really only seen TV companies make use of it. Recently we've begun to see press releases start floating around with computer monitors jumping on the bandwagon and today we'll be checking out the AOC e2237Fwh which utilizes the said technology. Pulling the monitor from the box for the first time, you get a real elegant feel thanks to it being only 22mm thick for the most part. Only at the bottom does it come a little chunkier. The clear border around the black looks nice and the bottom is used as part of the stand."

Kingston HyperX blu PC3-12800 (1600MHz) 4GB Kit
     Sat, Oct 23 2010 | 9:04A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The HyperX name has been around for a while now and we've seen many modules fall into the series. Today, however, we're seeing the biggest change to the series we've seen in a while. Today we're looking at the new HyperX blu Series. Its aim is HyperX quality at a value price. To some, HyperX means speed; to others, it means great quality modules and heatsink along with the ability to overclock. So, what we're wondering is, how does the HyperX blu series sit in the line-up?"
