FX-8350 CPU Review; AMDs Vishera Arrives @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 12:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD`s new FX-8350 is the new kid on the processor block but it, along with the other Vishera CPUs, house technology we`ve seen before. Like Trinity, this eight core processor uses the revised Piledriver architecture which is supposed to grant it substantial performance improvements over Bulldozer. But will it be enough to overcome, let alone compete with Intel`s offerings?"

Posted by: STAFF
Without much fanfare, AMD is launching yet another new product, this time the Piledriver-based AM3+ CPUs. Ready as a drop-in replacement for current 9-series AMD motherboards, the FX-8350 not only offers a bit of a surprise in performance, but also a suprise that your wallet will like too!"

Transcend SSD320 256GB SSD Review
     Mon, Oct 22 2012 | 11:17P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today Chris follows up the Transcend SSD720 review with the mainstream model, the SSD320. The SSD320 pairs asynchronous flash with the same SandForce controller found in the flagship 720 model. This combination reduces the total cost, but does it also significantly reduce performance?"

I-MEGO Throne Headset @ Techreaction.net

Today we have another headset to put through the ringer, but not a gaming headset. We are switching it up a little here and giving you some variety. The THRONE Gold feature real leather headbands, complete with signature I-MEGO stitching, in-line microphone and adaptor cables compatible with all smart phones. The THRONEs artistry mixed with technological innovation, tries to create new audio gear that delivers clear and heavy sounds with a sleek and stylish look. One-button music control with a microphone to take calls and control your music directly from your headphones. THRONE Gold is geared towards big bass for rock, R&B, or hip hop.

2x Dell XPS 15 review: Core i7 or Core i5?
     Mon, Oct 22 2012 | 5:11P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Dell XPS 15s are deluxe laptops that look great. This is true for both models we tested, but we definitely prefer the version with Core i7 and GT 640M over the one with Core i5 and GT 630M. The i7 version costs more of course, but it's worth the extra money. The processor is quite a bit faster, and you can actually play games with that graphics card.

Samsung 830 256GB Solid State Drive Review @ circuitREMIX
     Mon, Oct 22 2012 | 1:51P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past year, the SSD product landscape has changed drastically. Performance has gone up, prices have dropped, and new competitors have emerged in the market place. One company that has been around through this and more is Samsung. While it`s not the biggest consumer brand for SSDs, Samsung has a big presence in the industry. As a long term supplier of SSDs to Apple, Dell, and HP; Samsung has had a lot of experience building and designing SSDs. Today we`ll be looking at one of Samsung`s consumer oriented SSDs, the 256GB 830 series, to see how it compares."

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - No Mask of SBA FE
     Mon, Oct 22 2012 | 9:48A | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the *No Mask of SBA FE *setting."

GIGABYTE GTX 650Ti OC Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Oct 22 2012 | 9:29A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As an entry level GPU, the GTX650Ti is a card which needs to strike a fine balancing act between price and performance. Too much and people will inevitably spend their money elsewhere. If too many cuts have been made then performance may suffer. In some ways, an entry level card is presents more of a quandary to the manufacturers than a flagship `cost no objective` graphics card. Add to this the fact that many budget gamers looking to break into the DirectX 11 gaming arena will not have huge enclosures nor massive power supplies and the headache soon turns into a migraine. So the question has to be asked: Have GIGABYTE managed to create a balanced card? Is this the entry level card you should go for?"
