NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti Overclocked Roundup - EVGA Galaxy MSI and Zotac
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 11:55A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti is a great GPU, and as such we found all four of these retails cards to be worthy of purchases. If you already bought one and it`s on the way you really don`t need to worry about any kind of returns. You`ll be happy with the performance. That being said, the Zotac AMP! Edition gets my nod as the best of the bunch with its higher GPU clock speeds, and overclocked memory speeds resulting in an out-of-box experience that is a little better than the rest."

     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 11:52A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Club3D has just released the fastest single-slot low-profile graphics card, based on the HD 7750. This means that full HD gaming on your compact media PC might just be a possibility. In our review we will take a close look at gaming capabilities, but also look at power consumption and noise."

Patriot EP Pro SDHC UHS-1 32GB review
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 11:44A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the Patriot EP Pro SDHC UHS-1 32GB flash card. It`s not your average SDHC storage card, this little fracker can read at 90 Mb/sec and write at 50 Mb/sec, making it amongst the fastest SDHC cards available on the market. Read the full review right here"

PowerColor HD 7950 3GB Boost State Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 10:39A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD`s Boost BIOS for the HD 7950 was launched amid a fair amount of controversy but retail cards are now available and in this review, we take PowerColor`s HD 7950 Boost State out for a spin.  Does it have what it takes to compete against what NVIDIA has to offer?  More importantly, is this new card really worth its $50 premium over the GTX 660 Ti it was meant to upset? "

Corsair Neutron GTX 240GB Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 9:53A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Driven by a Link_A_Media (LAMD) Controller Neutron GTX is backed by Toshiba Toggle Flash NAND and boasts better random read/write speeds as well as sequential performance too. Corsair have extended warranty with the Neutron Series also, the usual 3 years warranty is a thing of the past ? make way for a superior 5 years warranty instead. Neutron GTX is shaping up to be a very competent offering so let?s waste no further time and begin analysis."

Crucial V4 256GB SATA II SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 9:34A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial lists the capabilities of V4 256GB SATA II SSD as being able to reach read speeds of up to 230MB/s and writes up to 190MB/s. In two out of three synthetic benchmarks, we saw these specifications exceeded with the max reads hitting a hair under 280MB/s and writes just under 240MB/s. Obviously, this is best case performance scenarios but it gives a clear indication of what the drives are capable of although the lesser capacity versions will return lower results. Being a value oriented drive, we feel like the performance is very solid..."

ASRock Z77E-ITX Mini ITX Motherboard Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 9:32A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I can honestly say that I wasn`t sure what to expect from a mini-ITX motherboard like the ASRock Z77E-ITX. I was afraid that it wouldn`t be on par or as capable as a full ATX motherboard. Once all the benchmarking is said and done though, I have to say that I am really happy with the ASRock Z77E-ITX motherboard. Sure we are missing a couple of things that are typical to an ATX or Micro-ATX motherboard, but that is more due to available real estate on the PCB than anything else..."

GTX 660 Ti 5-Way Roundup (ASUS EVGA Gigabyte Galaxy MSI) @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 9:30A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the newly-released GTX 660 Ti making inroads within the GPU market, we have decided to look at five competing cards from NVIDIA`s top board partners. ASUS, MSI, Galaxy, Gigabyte and MSI have all sent cards but once the dust settles, only one can come out on top."

Acer Aspire V5-171-6605 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 9:23A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With ultraportable laptops being all the rage recently, it`s no surprise that Acer is trying to beat the rest of the crowd by releasing the Aspire V5-171-6605, a cheaply-priced competitor. Despite having a lower price than most, it doesn`t sacrifice on performance or even display quality. It does have very short battery life and a glitchy touchpad."

Startech 4 Bay Standalone HDD Duplicator Dock Review - XSReviews
     Tue, Sep 04 2012 | 9:20A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this month we looked at StarTech.com`s Dual SATA Enclosure and found it to be a very high quality product indeed, operating at a premium price range but offering quite a few features for the money as well. Today we`ll be looking at another item that has a slightly different purpose, but could be described in much the same way. It`s a 4 bay standalone HDD duplicator, designed to allow the contents of a single drive to be copied to three other drives simultaneously. It doesn`t need to be connected to a PC to operate as a duplicator, although it can serve as a massive 4 hard drive enclosure when connected to a PC via USB 3.0 or eSATA. It`s an interesting idea, so let`s have a look at how it works and whether it`s worth that high price tag -- 544.79! A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Western Digital Red NAS Hard Drive Review @ Techgage
     Mon, Sep 03 2012 | 4:10P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* With the release of its Red hard drives, WD hasn`t only managed to scratch another color off its list, but it also gives NAS users a drive designed just for them. Beyond its NAS-specific features, Red proves to be one of the fastest drives on the market, and with its 3-year warranty, it`s without a doubt a very compelling option for NAS users."

Sleeping Dogs (PC) Review @ Techgage
     Mon, Sep 03 2012 | 4:08P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* If you`ve been on the lookout for a gritty open-world gang-related crime game taking place in Hong Kong, you not only have very specific tastes, but you`re also in luck. Sleeping Dogs follows in the footsteps of such games as GTA, but adds in enough originality to set itself apart. Does this ambitious title live up to its hype?"

QNAP TurboNAS TS-269 Pro NAS Server Review
     Mon, Sep 03 2012 | 4:03P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NAS units (or servers as i like to call them) are amongst the hottest network/storage related peripherals of our time (in terms of sales) which really makes sense since they combine extremely low electrical requirements with a very small size and in some occasions even a low price tag (at least entry level solutions do). Needless to say however that these little devices can`t do every single thing an regular PC (or even HTPC) can do but the tasks that they were designed to do they do a lot better (due to lower resource demands) and that`s what really counts in the long run. A couple of months ago on our test bench we had the latest TurboNAS TS-469 Pro by QNAP, an 4 bay NAS server with remarkable performance (largely thanks to the 2.13GHz Dual Core Atom processor) and countless features. Still since many people don`t really need that many drive bays today we will be testing its smaller brother, the dual bay TurboNAS TS-269 Pro."

Crucial v4 256GB vs. OCZ Agility 4 256GB SSD Shootout
     Mon, Sep 03 2012 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
By mid 2012, SSD prices fell through the floor, costing approximately half as much as last year. Granted, that's still nowhere near as economical as standard hard drives, so companies have continued to offer affordable solutions in addition to their high-end series to drive sale volumes. Such is the case with OCZ and the Agility 4, a budget-minded counterpart to the Vertex 4 that employs cheaper NAND flash memory. In similar fashion we recently saw the arrival of the Crucial v4 series. With both the Agility 4 and Crucial's v4 priced at just under $200 for 256GB models, it seems we have the makings of a value-driven shootout...

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.

Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 Intel X79 LGA2011 Motherboard In-Depth Review

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.
