Asus ROG Xonar Phoebus
     Sun, Oct 14 2012 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
the PC audio world, there is a major divide as far as people who find onboard audio more than enough and users who absolutely must run a sound card. In recent years, onboard sound has improved considerably. But no matter how much they improve it, it main flaw is being on the motherboard itself and not a separate circuit. When it comes to sound cards, there are just a few top manufactures with Asus being one. Asus recently introduced a new sound card focused on the gaming market under their ROG (Republic of Gaming) line called the ROG Xonar Phoebus. I’ve had it running in my gaming system, today we will talk about my experience thus far.

     Sun, Oct 14 2012 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This mainboard could easily be based on Intel Z75 Express; however, it is indeed built on Intel Z77 Express chipset, although it doesn’t use all of its functionality. There is nothing wrong about it, the mainboard is still exceptionally feature-rich, but its price is a little above the desired level.

Review: EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB SSC SuperSuperClocked @ Ocaholic
     Sat, Oct 13 2012 | 1:51P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the introduction of the GeForce GTX 650 Ti, nVidia is completing the Kepler GTX lineup. The GeForce GTX 650 Ti is here to fill the performance gap that was between the GTX 660 and the GTX 650. Compared to the GTX 660 that`s quite a cut still, 4 SMX versus 5 and a memory bandwidth of only 86 GB/s versus 144 GB/s on the GTX 660, is this still enough to play games smoothly? That`s what we are going to find out here with SuperSuperClocked card from EVGA that comes with a slightly different design, a factory overclocking and twice the amount of memory. Don`t worry, we benched the reference design from nVidia as well."

Kingston DT R3.0 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Sat, Oct 13 2012 | 9:25A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There used to be a time when the only ultra-portable storage needs most people had could be easily covered with just a mere 2-4GB USB Flash Drive but much like most things related to technology that changed and now most people carry at least 16GB capacity drives with them at all times. Personally ever since i can remember Ive always carried a USB flash drive with my keychain and most of the times that used to be an rugged version to ensure i had the best possible data protection against harsh conditions. Unfortunately compared to roughly 3-4 years ago not many manufacturers make rugged USB 3.0 flash drives any more (not really durable ones anyway) and the ones that do only release slow models. Well Kingston takes a different approach and after their already perfect HyperX USB 3.0 flash drive (partially rugged) they have just now released the DT R3.0 USB 3.0 flash drive line (the initials stand for DataTraveler Rugged 3.0) from which we have the 64GB variant here with us."

AMD Catalyst 12.9 Beta - HD 7970 Gaming Performance @ ocaholic
     Sat, Oct 13 2012 | 9:09A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s been a while since we last benched AMD Catalyst drivers which is our fault and not AMD`s. Anyway AMD repleased the Catalyst 12.9 Beta two weeks ago on the 26th of September so we are going to test it and compare it with no less that 12 previous Catalyst drivers. Spoiler Alert: As soon as we started to test the 12.9 Beta we noticed a performance increase over the previous 12.8 WHQL which is always a good sign."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
