RunCore Pro IV 1.8 Inch ZIF SSD @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Jul 30 2013 | 11:55A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the past we have taken a look at a variety of different SSDs of all different sizes and shapes. Today we are going to check out something completely different. Today we are taking a look at a tiny 1.8 inch SSD that uses a PATA ZIF connection. For those of you who dont know what a ZIF connection is, that is a zero insertion force connection. You typically see them inside of laptops and in this case this drive is normally used on small laptops and in some handheld devices. Being a PATA based (think IDE) these arent all about speed, but I wanted to check the drive out due to its size. So lets take a look."

Ubuntu 13.10 Can Outperform OS X 10.9 On Intel OpenGL
     Tue, Jul 30 2013 | 10:08A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With Apple`s OS X 10.9 Mavericks having better OpenGL performance and in compliance with OpenGL 4.1 rather than being GL3-limited as with existing OS X releases, new benchmarks were carried out at Phoronix to see how well Apple`s OpenGL driver stack on the current OS X 10.9 developer preview compared to Ubuntu Linux when testing the Intel graphics driver."

ASUS PCE-N15 Wireless-N PCI-E Adapter Review @ HiTech Legion
     Tue, Jul 30 2013 | 9:05A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The PCE-N15 Wireless-N PCI-E Adapter from Asus provides a way to alleviate some of the tangled monstrosity that is networking. The PCE-N15 Wireless-N adapter boasts a top speed of 300Mbps and dual antennas that operate on different frequencies to help deal with areas that have a lot of other Wi-Fi networks. It all seems like the standard affair for a wireless-N card these days, except for nifty little mode called Software AP which allows it to act as an access point for other devices on your network. This way you can either extend your existing network or add wireless without more cables and a new router/"

EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Superclocked
     Mon, Jul 29 2013 | 4:48P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Late March Nvidia introduced (and we reviewed) the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost, which was a new version of the GeForce GTX 650 Ti. When you look at the specs you'll see that it's an entry-level version of the GeForce GTX 660. Clock frequencies, turbo and memory bandwidth are all identical. Only the number of active shader units is the same as on the original GTX 650 Ti Boost. The GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost is Nvidia's answer to the AMD Radeon HD 7790. Nvidia's card is generally slightly faster, but it's also slightly more expensive. We already tested GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost cards from ASUS and MSI. Today we'll be taking a closer look at EVGA's take on it, the EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost Superclocked 2GB.

Sony KD-55X9005: first affordable UHD 4K TV
     Mon, Jul 29 2013 | 4:27P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year the first Ultra HD televisions arrived with a resolution of 3840x2160 pixels. These were massive 84-inch TVs from companies like Sony and LG, with price tags in excess of 20,000 pounds. Almost six months later Sony is the first to introduce a more affordable UHD TV. The new 55-inch 55X9005 costs £3,999. That's still a lot of money, but nevertheless more consumer-friendly than the 84-inch model.

Sabertooth Z77, Asus goes lame?
     Mon, Jul 29 2013 | 4:27P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The motherboard we are examining today is part of the ASUS "TUF" series which is an acronym for "The Ultimate Force." The Sabertooth Z87 looks like a promising follow up to the Sabertooth Z77 and given the Sabertooth pedigree, our expectations are high for this entry into the series which sets itself apart in the ASUS product stack.

USB 3.0 Flash Drive Roundup July 2013
     Mon, Jul 29 2013 | 4:26P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall when it comes to price, performance and build quality it is hard to go past the SanDisk Extreme. The Patriot Supersonic Magnum is also an excellent option if you are after maximum performance. Having said that we have no problem recommending either the SanDisk Extreme or Patriot Supersonic Magnum, both are excellent quality flash drives.
