Xigmatek Asgard II Computer Case Review
     Wed, Jan 12 2011 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Xigmatek's Asgard II is a real gem, as budget cases go. For as little as thirty bucks you get a distinctive look, excellent tool-free solutions and a rich feature set worthy of a case that is twice the price. The cooling performance isn't bad either, and the case responds well to additional case fans, at least up front."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 DirectX 11 GPU Review
     Wed, Jan 12 2011 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hot on the heels of the arrival of their flagship GeForce GTX 580, NVIDIA is launching another new graphics card today, based on the GF110 GPU. As we’ve come to expect from NVIDIA, and AMD for that matter, when a new GPU arrives, derivatives based on pared down version of the chip typically get introduced at some point, but with somewhat lower specifications. Such is the case with the GeForce GTX 570 we’ll be showing you here today. It’s almost funny to say “somewhat lower specifications”, however, because the GeForce GTX 570 is one heck of a powerful graphics card, as you’ll see. We’ve got the full specifications outlined, followed by a complete set of performance numbers using both a reference card and factory overclocked model from EVGA—the GeForce GTX 570 SuperClocked Edition...

Zowie Celeritas mechanical switch gaming keyboard
     Wed, Jan 12 2011 | 11:35A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As the gaming industry has evolved, peripherals have been developed alongside it. Interestingly, as time has gone on there's been a bit of seperation between gamers and the hardware that they have available to them. While there are keyboards and mice out there that are festooned with lights, macro keys and outlandish styling, there's another branch that ephasises something different. This second way of doing things is a little more streamlined. It focuses on speed, it's serious and often expensive. More and more pro-gamers are now heading in this direction and the product we're looking at today is no different. Lauded by some gamers that most people will never have heard of, the Zowie Celeritas comes with mechanical switches, a sleek black paint job and lots of internal cleverness to have you gaming at your best. Let's see how it compares to the boards we've reviewed in the past. "

Galaxis Atlus Mid-Tower Case
     Wed, Jan 12 2011 | 11:34A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Atlus case by Galaxis is a mid-tower offering supporting standard ATX mainboards, four external 5.25" drive bays and one external 3.5" bay. It has a large side intake fan, blue LED lighting and a top control panel. We have seen a variety of mid-tower offerings lately and the feature set from the outside looks typical, though with the USB and audio ports on the top I would expect more of a floor placement. Follow along as we take a closer look. "

"The Antec Lanboy Air is a work of manufacturing and design art. It offers complete customizability and flexibility due to its highly modular design, and Antec's extensive thought process that went into its development. It allows 100% freedom of choice in just about every important aspect of case design, from hard drive placement, to power supply, fans, and even 5.25" device placement. Never before has a manufacturer gone this far in modularity, which makes the Lanboy Air the first of its kind."

Posted by: STAFF
"After examining the Z9 Plus chassis, I was very pleased to see that Zalman has addressed the vast majority of the issues I had with the Z7 series. Not only has Zalman improved cooling performance while still keeping noise in the acceptable range, they've given the interior a matching black finish for a uniform look, updated the aesthetics and added support for a couple of SSDs as well."

This morning I sat in on a conference with ASUS about their upcoming Tegra 3-based Transformer Prime tablet. The event covered everything you and I need to know about the tablet, as well as a few surprises. First off, the ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime will be the first NVIDIA Tegra 3-based, quad-core tablet on the market. ASUS pushed that there are six unique selling points of Transformer Prime. The six points are: Incredibly Beautiful, Ultra Performance, Amazing Camera, Super IPS+ panel, Supreme Sound and Mobile Dock. Let`s dive into specs. Transformer Prime packs quite the performance and feature punch, sporting the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core System-on-a-Chip (SoC), a 10.1-inch LED backlit with Super IPS+, 1280 x 800 resolution panel with 10 finger multi-touch, 32 and 64GB sizes, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, 1GB of Low-Profile DDR2 RAM, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with flash and 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera."

Palit GeForce GTX 570 Sonic Platinum review
     Wed, Jan 12 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Palit launched a GeForce GTX 570 with what the refer to as a mercury design. The name of the product is tagged under their known Sonic Platinum edition series, and as you guys know that guarantees more features and some extra's. The extra's can be found in the customized looks with that very dandy looking dual-fan GPU cooler. Next to that Palit pre-clocked the product at a nice 800 MHz for you on the core, 1600 MHz on the shader domain and even the memory got bumped up towards 4000 MHz (effective).
