MSI GTX 560 Ti-448 1280MB Twin Frozr III Power Edition Overclocked
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 4:04P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The other day we checked out the brand new MSI GTX 560 Ti-448 1280MB Twin Frozr III Power Edition and found ourselves extremely impressed what the limited edition model from NVIDIA was offering us for the holiday season. Being part of the Power Edition series from MSI, though, means that it stands out more so than a lot of other companies, and via the help of MSI Afterburner we`re able to overclock the card. Today we`ll be firing up MSI Afterburner and seeing just what we can do on the overclocking side. Knowing MSI, the Power Edition should give us a decent overclock and we should hopefully see a nice boost in performance. Before we get into the performance side of things, though, the first thing we need to do is check out our test system setup. Once we`ve done that we`ll quickly cover how we went with the overclocking side of things before we of course run the card through our gauntlet."

OCZ RevoDrive 3 PCI-Express SSD Review @ OCIA.net
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 4:04P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The 240GB sample that we have features blistering performance rated at up to 1000MB/s read and 900MB/s write with 130,000 IOPS. This is 260MB/s read and 180MB/s write faster than the RevoDrive X2, a card that included four SandForce controllers to obtain such speeds. The RevoDrive 3 is able to trump those numbers with only two controllers thanks to new advances across the board.?"

ASUS HD 6950
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"By using either ASUS Smart Doctor or the commonly available Afterburner overclocking applications I was able to push the speeds up for additional performance. However, to get to the top clock speeds the voltage had to be tweaked some to reach the final clock speeds of 965MHz on the core and 1505MHz on the GDDR5 memory. Any higher than 965MHz on the core and stability was dependent on the game or test and could be pushed as high as 976MHz on the core, again depending on the game or test. Still even with that, 965MHz represents an almost 20% bump in core clock speed. The GDDR5 memory also yielded some big clock speed up to the overclocking gods with a 255MHz or just over a 20% increase over the default 1250MHz."

Hybrid Storage Roundup: Seagate Momentus XT vs. OCZ RevoDrive Hybrid vs. Intel Z68
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 4:03P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The result of this roundup is that due to the various hardware configurations each Hybrid solution is created for, there is no clear winner. The RevoDrive Hybrid dominates the field, but can only be installed into a desktop class machine. The Seagate Momentus XT provides the simplest drop-in high-capacity performance for laptops containing a single 2.5 HDD bay. Finally, Intel`s Rapid Response Technology present on Z68 desktops and recent 68 series mobile chipsets, gives a flexible option that works very well."

Seagate Barracuda XT 3TB
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 4:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Pricing for the 3TB drive comes in currently at $189, so it is priced competitively in the segment. Considering that a 1TB drive can be had for less than $70, the cost per TB drops with the addition of capacity. Pairing this drive with a Z68 motherboard and a small SSD using Intel's Smart Response technology, would allow both the increased capacity we all want with the responsiveness of an SSD once the technology learns your most used applications. Ultimately, the Seagate Barracuda XT 3TB drive exceeds expectations by delivering a higher level of performance with the extra capacity needed as we progress to ever larger file sizes for our digital media. Higher sustained data flow and an overall improvement in responsiveness are the hallmarks of this drive. Add in a small SSD for some Smart caching on an Intel Z68 based motherboard and you should have the best of both worlds — speed and capacity."

Posted by: STAFF
?If you know anything about Kingston you know their HyperX line. HyperX is the name they give all of their high-end products. Kingston entered the solid state drive market with the SSDNow series of drives, but it was about time the put the HyperX name on a solid state drive.

GeIL EVO CORSA PC3-19200 16GB Kit Review
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 1:38P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Checking out the EVO CORSA kit, you can see that the look of the module is quite different to what we`re used to seeing with quite a different looking heatsink that comes in a Metallic Green finish. I`ve never been the biggest fan of the color green, but to be honest with more and more companies using it, the color is beginning to grow on me. The Metallic finish that GeIL has gone for here as well looks pretty good. As for the size of the kit, we`re dealing with 4GB modules which is another contributing factor to the more relaxed timings. Of course, being a Quad Channel kit, 4GB modules mean we`ve got a total of 16GB of RAM here. 16GB of RAM running at a massive 2400MHz DDR? Sounds like there`s going to be little to complain about."

Crucial m4 256GB SATA 6Gbit/s SSD Review @ Techgage
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 1:34P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s been a while since we last took a look at a Crucial product, so for the next one, how about we make it interesting? SSDs aren`t uncommon, but high-end SSDs that don`t feature a SandForce controller are - and of course, that`s what makes Crucial`s m4 notable. Does its lack of a SandForce controller hold it back? Let`s take a look."

BIOS Option Of The Week - SDRAM Command
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 12:03P | 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.
