AMD and Nvidia GPU Comparison with Latest Drivers
     Thu, Nov 29 2012 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After a busy year with numerous GPU releases by mid-September things had settled down for good. And then, AMD threw us a curve ball. Their Catalyst 12.11 beta drivers delivered major performance gains in many popular games such as Battlefield 3, Borderlands 2, Civilization V, Skyrim, Sleeping Dogs and StarCraft II. Around the same time, Nvidia released a new beta driver of its own which claimed gains in several titles, and this driver has since been replaced by the GeForce 310.61 update, which made further performance enhancements. With updated pricing and performance across the board, we figured it would be worth revisiting both company's offerings to see where you should spend your hard-earned cash this holiday season and into early next year.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II Performance & IQ Review
     Thu, Nov 29 2012 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Call of Duty: Black Ops II is the first Call of Duty game on PC to support DX11 and new graphical features. Hopefully improvements to the IW Engine will be enough to boost the CoD franchise near the top graphics-wise. We also examine NVIDIA's TXAA technology which combines shader based antialiasing and traditional multisampling AA.

Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP 16GB Kit Review - BCCHardware
     Thu, Nov 29 2012 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I feel that the Crucial Ballistix Sport VLP performed well. It didnt blow any of my test memory out of the water, and actually had some points scored against it from both test modules. This being said, it didnt score bad, because any differences in the benchmarks was nominal at best. This memory rates comparably with both my test modules. . ."

AMD Catalyst 12.11 Beta 8 - HD 7970 Gaming Performance @ ocaholic
     Thu, Nov 29 2012 | 8:50A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Once more AMD has released a new driver update. This time they say they have taken care of the issue we discovered, which is related to power consumption under idle conditions. Of course we have been checking if they succeeded in getting rid of these problems and we were also checking if there are any performance differences or maybe even glitches or big improvements."

ARM Cortex-A15 vs. NVIDIA Tegra 3 vs. Intel x86
     Thu, Nov 29 2012 | 6:55A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week I shared some early benchmarks of the Samsung Chromebook while running Ubuntu Linux. The Samsung Chromebook is very interesting since it`s one of the few readily available computers on the market employing an ARM Cortex-A15 processor rather than Cortex-A9 or other models. The Cortex-A15 found in the Samsung Exynos 5 Dual SoC proved to be very powerful and this Chromebook was quite a good deal with it being trivial to load Ubuntu Linux (and other distributions) while costing only $250 USD for this ARM-based laptop. In the past week I have carried out additional ARM Cortex-A15 benchmarks, including a comparison of its performance the the NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core ARM Cardhu tablet and several Intel Atom/Core x86 systems."

Samsung PN64E8000 64 Inch Plasma Smart TV Review @ Tweaknews
     Thu, Nov 29 2012 | 5:08A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung`s PN64E8000 Plasma Smart TV can be summed up as an easy purchase for the consumer that has the upgraded budget and is smart enough to see that with this one purchase you don`t only get an upgradable fantastic livingroom display, but also a trimmed down home theater pc. Add on the additional features like voice and motion control, webcam, future processor upgrades, SMART TV functionality, WIFI, Samsung APPS, Games (Angry Birds) and the difference in price seems to dwindle to an investment that over time will be boiled down to a difference of mere pennies a day."

SanDisk 32GB microSDHC Card Review @ TestFreaks
     Thu, Nov 29 2012 | 3:18A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The microSD card has become synonymous with mobile phone memory card really. If you have a phone chances are you have a microSD card in it for storage. With the wide availability and selection of apps today, most likely youll be looking to upgrade your storage so youll need a bigger microSD card and personally I would get one from a reputable source and one thats name brand.

Having said that, I guess you already figured out today I have a SanDisk microSD card for you, specifically its a 32gb class 4 card. So read on "

Silverstone Sugo SG09 SFF Case Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, Nov 29 2012 | 12:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It may be considered a small form factor chassis but Silverstone`s SG09 is absolutely packed with features and has a surprising amount of interior space. While there isn`t any available space for water cooling, the SG09`s sub-12 height still allows for mico ATX motherboad compatibility and even dual graphics card configurations."

Crucial DDR3-1600 CL8 VLP UDIMM Tactical @ Teachreaction.net
     Wed, Nov 28 2012 | 9:54P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Low profile is the word of the day and Crucial spells it BALLISTIX VLP Tactical. This memory packs bang in the smallest package possible. It is not the fastest memory but it is faster than other low profile kits. It does not have the lowest latency but it holds its latency up to 2133. It is not the least expensive but it is faster and less obstructive than the less pricy chips."

Silverstone Heligon HE01 Heatsink Review
     Wed, Nov 28 2012 | 2:31P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"On Frostytech's test bench today is the Silverstone Heligon HE01 (SST-HE01) heatsink, an interesting asymmetric dual tower CPU cooler built for Intel LGA2011/1366/1156/1155/775 and AMD socket AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2 processors. At the heart of the heatsink is a massive 140mm vaneaxial fan, flanked by differently sized fin stacks which correspond to intake and exhaust air flows. On the cool air-intake side of the fan is a 30mm thick fin tower with a straight row of heatpipes intersecting the fins. On the hot exhaust side we find a slightly wider, 50mm thick fin tower constructed from slightly thicker aluminum fins."

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.
