REVIEW: MSI GTX 650 Ti Power Edition @ PureOverclock
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 11:40P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today`s review here is a look at the non-reference MSI GTX 650 Ti Power Edition, a model that sports a custom cooler and a factory overclock for only $10 more than the reference design. We expect some good things from this card and Nvidia has been extremely successful with the Kepler products, so will this card measure up? Can it beat the competing Radeon cards? Let`s dive in and answer those questions and more."

Zotac Geforce GTX 650 Ti AMP! Edition Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 11:36P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Zotac Geforce GTX 650 Ti AMP! Edition is well equipped to handle today`s games. The 650 Ti AMP! Edition features Zotac`s signature overclock. This GPU uses the latest NVIDIA Kepler design. The overclock sets the core at 1033MHz and memory at 6200MHz. This is also the better of the 650 Ti series, equipped with 2 GB of 128-bit GDDR5 memory. Deviating a bit from the traditional 650 Ti Zotac has swapped the DisplayPort for another HDMI connection. This gives the 650 Ti AMP! Edition two DVI connections and two HDMI connections. Out of the box, the Zotac Geforce GTX 650 Ti AMP! Edition comes with a 2 year warranty. Upon online registration, at Zotac`s website, the warranty will be extended for free.///"

Matrox DualHead2Go External Multi-Display Adaptor Review
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 9:51P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Matrox DualHead2Go is the display adaptor you have been looking for but never found. The image quality for such a small adaptor is superb - it never looked washed out or faded as you can see from the introductory photos for this review. I just cannot say enough about the quality; it is simply one of those things you need to see firsthand to appreciate. I have used a number of external monitor adaptors ranging from VGA to DVI and even HDMI, and this has to be the best looking one I have used to date."

SSD NEWS: PNY XLR8 Pro 480GB SSD Review - Capacity Price and Performance
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 8:17P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our SSD review today examines the new PNY XLR8 Pro 6Gbps SSD and one might think that, after reviewing SSDs for six years and having somewhere in the area of 100TB of SSD storage in the office, receiving a 480GB SSD in the mail wouldn`t be exciting. In that, you would be wrong. As much as getting such an SSD in your hands would be exciting for anyone, the truth is that I race to the front each and every time a courier shows up. It`s in the blood I think. I truly love SSD technology."

AMD FX-8350 and FX-6300
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 8:07P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the exception of WinRAR and Fritz Chess, the AMD FX-8350 was no more than 6% faster than the FX-8150 in any one of our tests, despite being clocked 11% faster (though we should keep in mind both processors feature a max turbo frequency of 4.2GHz). It was a similar situation when comparing the FX-6300 to the FX-6100, though the margins here were even slimmer as the Piledriver part is clocked just 6% higher.

AMD Piledriver FX Review - FX 8350, 8320, 6300 vs Intel Core i5 and i3

We review AMD's Piledriver based FX CPU, codenamed Vishera. A replacement to Bulldozer in every way imaginable, does it have what it takes for AMD to finally beat Intel? Read on to find out!

AMD FX-8350, -8320, -6300 'Vishera' review: finally good enough
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 5:07P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you plan on using a dedicated graphics card, the FX-8350, FX-8320 and FX-6300 aren't bad options. With Intel you get an integrated GPU that you pay for but don't use if you have a separate graphics card. In the AMD FX processors every single transistor is used by the CPU, which clearly has a positive effect with multi-threaded software. Don't get us wrong, Intel still makes the world's fastest processor and AMD can't even get close. But if you have a dedicated video card, then the new AMD FX processors give you a lot of bang for your buck.

AMD FX-8350 Vishera 8-Core CPU Review
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 4:07P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even before AMD officially released its Bulldozer-based FX-Series of desktop processors last year, the company was already talking about the follow-on microarchitecture codenamed “Piledriver”. In fact, in the conclusion of our launch article featuring the AMD FX-8150, we posted an AMD-provided slide that showed Piledriver was already on-deck and that it would offer IPC and power improvements over existing architectures, which would result in roughly a 10% to 15% uplift in performance. We have already shown you what Piledriver could do in mainstream APUs in our coverage of the desktop AMD A10 and A8-Series of products and the mobile A10-4600M, but today AMD is finally refreshing its higher-end desktop CPU line-up, which hasn’t seen a new product launch for just over a year. The updated AMD FX-Series of desktop processors featuring the Piledriver microarchitecture was codenamed “Vishera” and we’ve had the flagship variant, the new FX-8350, in the lab for a couple of weeks now...

Windows 8, The TechSpot Review
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 4:03P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
First, let's get something out of the way. Most of what's really new in Windows 8 relates to the Metro touch interface, which is Microsoft's biggest bet on this OS generation -- a bet that's risky but necessary given the company's lack of presence in the growing tablet market. This is also how the folks at Redmond have figured could give a needed boost to its smartphone business (“Windows everywhere”), which is well behind market leaders, iOS and Android. This review is based on my experience with Windows 8 using a desktop, so I've been treating Windows 8 like most computer enthusiasts will: as a direct upgrade from Windows 7 on my custom-built machine, just like I did with Vista, XP, 2k, and other previous Windows releases.

Mad Catz Cyborg R.A.T.9 Wireless Gaming Mouse Review
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 4:00P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most people who really enjoy playing PC games (i included) always choose wired gaming peripherals over wireless ones mainly to avoid encountering the usual issues with them but also because wireless gaming peripherals are usually not on par with wired ones in terms of performance. For example many wireless keyboards have a limitation on just how many keys you can press at the same time while others show a slight delay from the moment you press a key and when that action actually happens. Wireless keyboards and mice also have the typical battery life issue which means that you need to either change batteries quite frequently or recharge the existing ones. Range also used to be an serious issue since the wireless receiver had to be really close, however to my knowledge right now most (if not all) gaming oriented keyboards and mice don't have that problem (most feature at least a 10m range). Well Cyborg (Mad Catz) seems to have solved all of the issues we encounter with gaming mice with their latest (upgraded) R.A.T.9 wireless gaming mouse.

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
