ECS Liva 64GB Mini PC Review
     Thu, Jun 18 2015 | 4:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Setting the bar for small form factor PCs in July, ECS' Liva made comparable machines look oversized and overpriced, weighing only 190g and measuring 118mm wide, 56mm tall and70mm deep. Since its debut, ECS has updated the Liva with a 64GB option and though that's double the storage, we have only seen a mild price increase to $185. Paired with a super efficient fanless design that promises smooth 1080p playback it certainly grabbed our attention.

BIOS Option Of The Week - AGPCLK
     Thu, Jun 18 2015 | 4:00P | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meagre 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."The AGP bus clock speed is referenced from the CPU bus clock speed. However, the AGP bus was only designed to run at 66 MHz while the CPU bus runs anywhere from 66 MHz to 133 MHz. Therefore, a suitable AGP bus to CPU bus clock speed ratio or divider must be selected to ensure that the AGP bus won't run way beyond 66 MHz..."
