Serial Cables 8-Port 12Gbps SAS Direct Attached JBOD Review
     Sat, Nov 30 2013 | 4:34P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we started receiving 12Gbps SAS products in the summer of 2013, we were met with typical products such as the Adaptec ASR-8885 RAID Adapter, the LSI SAS 9300-8e HBA and the HGST SSD800MM SSD. Each of these products delivered excellent performance that far outpaced the 6Gbps versions that they were built on. But, in order to have a full working ecosystem, you need more than just a RAID card and a stack of SSDs. You need cables, backplanes and enclosures. Considering how many 6Gbps SATA/SAS products that are on the market, those things should be easy to find, right? Not so fast. When moving to 12Gbps SAS, cables and backplanes had to be specifically designed to support 12Gbps signaling. Simply changing the connectors on a 6Gbps backplane was not good enough. The T10 SAS 3.0 specification calls for transmit and receive equalization to maintain error free transfers, which is just one of the many changes required in the 3.0 spec. If that sounds even vaguely familiar, you probably know a little bit about PCI Express, specifically the 3.0 specification. PCIe 3.0 was the first serial protocol to implement this adaptive equalization. At a signal integrity level, SAS 3.0 and PCIe 3.0 are very similar. This helps explain why so much effort was put into the design and validation of 12Gbps SAS products, including cables and backplanes."

AMD APU On Linux: Gallium3D Can Be 80%+ As Fast As Catalyst
     Sat, Nov 30 2013 | 3:59P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After running earlier this week a 21-way graphics card comparison with Intel, AMD, and NVIDIA GPUs, there were requests by some Phoronix readers to see some new APU performance numbers. For ending out November, here`s new Catalyst vs. Gallium3D driver benchmarks on Ubuntu Linux for the AMD A10-6800K with its Radeon HD 8670D graphics. The results with the latest Linux kernel and Mesa are very positive towards the open-source AMD driver where in some tests the performance can nearly match Catalyst! For at least one Source Engine game, the open-source driver can now even run significantly faster than the binary driver."

GeForce GTX 780 Ti Market Overview @ ocaholic
     Sat, Nov 30 2013 | 3:07P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the arrival of the new and more efficient B1 revision of the 28nm GK110 GPU some Nvidia add-in-card (AIC) partners like Gigabyte have decided to come up with a completely new SKU while some will simply silently replace the old A1 revision. Gigabyte`s new GTX 780 GHz Edition will not only feature the new GK110-300-B1 chip but also bring a couple of other enhancements that should make it one of the best and among the fastest GTX 780 graphics cards on the market."

TRENDnet AC1750 Dual Band Wireless Router
     Sat, Nov 30 2013 | 11:21A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since Ive always had more than just 1 computer at my place when DSL first arrived into this country although everyone i knew chose the normal low-cost ADSL modems i opted for the more powerful and expensive modem/router combination so i could give access to all my systems without much fuss. Well to this day Ive never stopped using modem/router models (the Netgear i have now is the 7th in line) but something strange has happened and so for the past 2 years for unknown reasons (to me at least) all the well-known network solutions companies out there have shifted their focus towards the design and manufacture of standalone router models. Of course as you can all understand i am not too fond of that cause i can`t upgrade my modem/router with a newer model but since the latest 802.11ac (AC1750) Wi-Fi protocol has been introduced in routers we had to take a closer look and the TEW-812DRU AC1750 Dual Band Wireless Router by TRENDnet was the first to arrive on our doorstep."

Call of Duty: Ghosts (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com

Posted by: STAFF
If its not broke, dont fix it. Infinity Ward seem to be firm believers in this old adage. Sure they keep tweaking the game, but theyre not really ready to shake it up just yet. As news breaks Ghosts failed to outsell Black Ops II at launch, what conclusions can be drawn?"

Posted by: STAFF
NZXT is a well-known company which started off as a designer and manufacturer of cases. The company soon diversified into cooling and power related products. Today they offer two series of power supplies, the Hale82 and Hale90. As the name implies, each series has a different efficient rating. Each series is also split into subseries, three and two respectively, depending on the color of the unit and whether is of modular design or not. Today we are having a look at the 550W version of the Hale82V2."

Western Digital My Cloud EX4 Personal Cloud Storage System @ TechwareLabs.com
     Sat, Nov 30 2013 | 4:14A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
TechwareLabs was invited to a private product briefing with WD just a week ago on the EX4. The invitation was appealing with a half concealed product behind a curtain alluding to the potential of more to come. Over the next hour we were briefed on a startling simple storage device that meets every need we could conceive of for a product in this price category. The two most interesting things about the EX4 are its simplicity to use and staggering number of powerful. We have tested storage devices for years at TechwareLabs. So many devices and designs that its easy to lose count. TheEX4 immediately presents itself out of the box with a professional appearance, good design, and good price."

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.
