BitFenix Colossus White Case Review
     Thu, Jan 27 2011 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Based in Taiwan BitFenix are a reasonably new company however some of their key employees have a huge amount of experience in creating enthusiast products for other manufacturers. Their new venture started a couple of months ago with the Colossus case with many of the initial reviews focusing on the original black model. However, like many manufacturers, BitFenix are also offering a white version of the case and it is that model which we have on our test bench today."

Posted by: STAFF
"Sapphire rarely does anything half-heartedly though and the focus of today's review is their take on an enhanced 6850. This is more than just a new cooler and factory overclock though as they have completely changed the product to enhance its performance and overclocking potential. Read on to find out how it performs in real world gameplay with the latest games, including Call of Duty: Black Ops, F1 2010 (DX11 patch) and Medal of Honor. Of course our usual content is also covered including 5760x1080 testing (with videos and screenshots), Blu-Ray 3D playback, AMD HD3D gameplay, GPU computing and a section on just how far we could push the Toxic."

Posted by: STAFF
“If you have a portable PC you will most likely need an external portable DVD±R drive at some point. There are a few of these portable drives being offered by some of the big name manufacturers but every once in a while a new-kid moves onto the block and wants to get into the game. The “new kid” on the block is Archgon, who has several products when it comes to Portable Optical Drives.”

AMD Radeon HD 6870 CrossFireX graphics cards
     Thu, Jan 27 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Computers with two or more graphics card are an interesting concept, one that has always intrigued enthusiasts. Ever since Voodoo 2, one of the most popular PCI 3D accelerators of all time, a dual graphics subsystem has been something that everyone is dreaming of. Still, that impulse aside, once you’d sit down and carefully consider all the aspects of buying two graphics cards, you’d probably be put off indefinitely. Why? Because buying two graphics cards definitely isn’t something that could be considered a clever investment. How come? Well, simply put, if you have that kind of money, you’ll simply buy yourself the fastest graphics card in the current generation. If such a card is unfit for the intended purposes for whatever reason, you may add another one. If you have a capable motherboard and a strong enough PSU, that is. For any other card, buying two new ones simultaneously is a very dubious decision...

AMD Phenom II X4 975 and 840
     Thu, Jan 27 2011 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Today we're seeing the release of a couple new AMD processors. They are the Phenom II X4 840 and the Phenom II X4 975. AMD has been on a roll lately, shooting out two new sets of processors within a month. There's one thing we should get out of the way – they're still not Bulldozer though. With Intel’s Sandy Bridge now in the mix, let’s see how things shake out.”

45 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1GB Videocard Reviews
     Wed, Jan 26 2011 | 4:23P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The internet is flooded with GeForce GTX 560 Ti videocard reviews this morning. Here are 45 different write ups to choose from, though you really only need to read this article or this review to get the gist of this new graphics card.

www.pcstats.com

"All of this hoopla has again come down to small slivers of difference between the best options from AMD and Nvidia, amazingly enough. These two companies and their partners have a very good handle on the competitive situation, and they've positioned their products accordingly. We're left to sort things out, and sometimes, the best answer is "take your pick." One thing we do know: these new entries at $259-269 are where you want to be. The GeForce GTX 570, Radeon HD 6950 2GB, and Radeon HD 6970 don't deliver enough additional performance to justify their prices."

Sparkle Nvidia GeForce GT240 OC 1024MB GDDR5
     Wed, Jan 26 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Ok, so it’s another Sparkle video card for review. Yes it’s a GT240, but this one is the overclocked edition, or plus edition as it’s labeled, but it’s really not. The box says it is but the core and clock speeds are the same as the other GT240 cards. It does feature 1024mb of DDR5 ram, so let’s just jump in here. "

Most Anticipated PC Games of 2011
     Wed, Jan 26 2011 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
By now I think we can all agree that reports foretelling the demise of PCs as gaming platforms have been greatly exaggerated. Even though the landscape has shifted somewhat in recent years, with many companies putting a lot more effort behind console development, PC game sales still managed to grow 3% in a year where the industry as a whole was stalemate. That's no surprise with blockbusters like StarCraft II and WoW: Cataclysm breaking records last year. We expect 2011 to be another great year for gamers, with most of 2010’s delayed titles finally hitting store shelves and many other highly anticipated ones making their debut. To help you keep track of this year’s upcoming releases we’ve put together a list with nearly 30 titles, spanning a variety of genres, alongside their respective trailers and relevant information.

GeForce GTX 570 SLI review (Gigabyte)
     Wed, Jan 26 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So the fine people from Gigabyte send out a 2nd card prior to the release of the GeForce GTX 570, and that product my fiends is really interesting, in 2-way SLI, as this article is going to show you. We see tremendous scaling and while 349 EUR per card is not exactly pocket change money, for roughly 700 EUR you can create a fragtastic monster PC with two GeForce GTX 570 cards.

We review the all new GeForce GTX 570, the little brother of the GTX 580. Armed with a license to kill it will hunt down all modern games. A card that will be positioned in the 349 EUR price bracket yet offers a massive chunk of high-end DirectX 11 performance alongside good GPU temperatures and noise levels.

SIIG USB 3.0 Bay Hub & USB 3.0 Card Upgrade Kit
     Wed, Jan 26 2011 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While USB 3.0 is certainly starting to garner more and more attention from motherboard manufacturers, and consumers in general, one thing still remains an issue with USB 3.0: lack of front SuperSpeed ports on cases! What is worse, the handful of cases that DO have front USB 3.0 ports, don't have internal USB 3.0 headers and rather rely on extremal connectors; meaning you need to snake a cable out and around BACK of the case. This is not a good thing. SIIG understands the need for front mounted ports and has created a very interesting combination kit, that is a PCI Express x1 USB 3.0 adapter AND a front SuperSpeed USB 4-port hub 3.5" / 5.25" bay adapter. This combination means you can get ALL the benefits of USB 3.0 without needing to reach around the back of your case to USE it! Read on for my full review.

AMD Phenom II X6 1100T BE Hex-Core Processor

Posted by: STAFF
We saw back in September AMD released six new CPUs to add to their product mix. Today AMD is showcasing three new processors, including a new flagship model, the AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition. The other two processors are a Phenom II X2 565 Black Edition, and an Athlon II X3 455. All three of these processors are simply 100 MHz speed-bumps over previous top-end models.
