Beginner's Guide to HTPC: Video Resolutions
     Wed, Feb 09 2011 | 12:01P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Continuing our series of Beginner's Guides for HTPC and Home Theater, this guide will take a closer look at Video Resolutions--what it means, why's it important and how to make your picture as good as possible for your particular environment. In today’s TV market, the choice of resolution is generally between 720p and 1080p with 720p displays offering a lower price. If the display receives a format that is not in its native resolution, the image is scaled to meet the native resolution. There are times when 720p displays are all that is required and this is due to the eye’s ability to resolve each line of resolution from a given distance.

GeForce GTX 460 1GB Razor card
     Wed, Feb 09 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If you are looking for a single slot graphics card and want to get as much performance as possible in as small a space as possible, the Galaxy GeForce GTX 460 1GB Razor is the only place to look for an air cooled solution. The only two drawbacks are the extended length of the PCB that might affect smaller cases and the higher price. Galaxy though continues to push the boundaries of graphics card design and we welcome any and all competition."

AMD Fusion APUs Arrive
     Wed, Feb 09 2011 | 9:00A | Chipset | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As expected, AMD officially launched its Fusion APU platform today, the day before the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, just in time to counter Intel's Sandy Bridge barrage. The press release announcing AMD Fusion APU Era Begins lauds the graphics portion of its APU, which has...

* DirectX 11-capable graphics * Massive parallel processing to speed application performance * The UVD3 video acceleration block found in the new AMD Radeon™ HD 6800 Series GPUs

Gigabyte preceded AMD's announcement yesterday in unveiling the E-350 APU (Zacate) powered GA-E350N-USB3 mini-ITX all-in-one motherboard. This is obviously aimed at the base of the pyramid, unlike the Intel i5-2500K we posted our examination of 36 hours ago, but the new AMD APUs look like they have the potential to transform the sector.

It's evident from the build quality and high-end components that a lot of forethought was put into this product, and the end result is exceptional sound that raises the bar for every other speaker set in this price range."

Galaxis Ares Mid-Tower Case
     Tue, Feb 08 2011 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We recently took a look at a case from Galaxis called the Atlus. The Atlus was the first case we have worked with from Galaxis and we were left wanting a bit more from the maiden offering. Today we are taking a look at an additional offering from Galaxis called the Ares. According to the box, the case is available in two color schemes: Black / Blue and Black / Red. Galaxis sent their blue variation, but it is nice to see more than just the typical blue being offered."

In Win IronClad Case Review
     Tue, Feb 08 2011 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In Win's IronClad chassis has a lot to recommend it. The excellent cooling performance is probably its greatest asset, and the fact that this cooling comes at a relatively low noise penalty is just icing on the cake. A roomy interior that will mount just about any hardware you would want to throw at it is a big plus as well."

ASUS GTX 570
     Tue, Feb 08 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ASUS GTX 570 is a factory overclocked card, so I had high hopes for the clock speeds that this one would reach. NVIDIA's reference GTX 570 was able to reach clock speeds of 785MHz. Seeing as the ASUS GTX 570 was clocked just 43MHz below this, I knew it was going to surpass the reference overclock. In the end, we were able to up the core clock to an impressive 933MHz. Unfortunately we weren't able to get as large of an increase out of the memory clocks. We were however, able to up the memory speeds to 1092MHz. Last but not least, the shader clocks. The factory overclock put the ASUS GTX 570's shader clock at 1484MHz. We of course wanted to see a large increase in clock speeds, and that's just what we got. We were able to increase the shader clock speeds to 1866MHz."

Silverstone Raven 2 Evolution (RV02-E) ATX Case Review
     Tue, Feb 08 2011 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Released in late 2008, the original Silverstone Raven RV01 quickly caught my attention because of its strange orientation that pointed the motherboard upward at a 90-degree angle, so the "rear" I/O panel was placed on top of the enclosure instead of behind. Indeed, the RV01 was quite unique but it didn't execute the design as well as it could have, among the most common complaints: PSU placement and massive size. Silverstone was thus forced to be more creative with their next-generation Raven. The Raven 2 Evolution has a more efficient design, it is 24% skinner and 18% shorter than the RV01. The smaller dimensions have also allowed Silverstone to shed 17% of the overall weight. The new changes make for a very interesting computer case that maintains the unorthodox orientation, let's dive in for a closer look...
