OCZ ZD-XL detailed @ Ocaholic

Palit GeForce GTX 780 Super JetStream Graphics Card Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Sun, Sep 08 2013 | 10:08A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When deciding on a high end GPU there are two obvious options in the market at the moment, the GTX 770 and Radeon 7970 GHz Edition. Both offer a level of performance which will suit a decent budget but there is always that bit of doubt around what that bit of extra cash might get us. Today we look to answer that as we take an overclocked GTX 770 and 7970 GHz for a spin and compare them to an overclocked GTX 780 Super JetStream from Palit. Does that step up give us enough reason to stretch the budget and what will the GTX 780 give us in some of the latest games like Crysis 3, Grid 2 and Bioshock Infinite?"

Patriot Viper 3 Black Mamba 2x4GB DDR3-1866 CL9 1.5V Review @ Ocaholic
     Sun, Sep 08 2013 | 10:08A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even though Patriot are absent in the high-end part of the memory market, they are definitely no strangers to our test lab. Since the last summer, we have met four times and not once did their products fail to deliver. To see if this tradition can stand against another challenge, today we are going to proceed with our coverage of the recent Viper 3 lineup."

Plextor M5M 128GB mSATA SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Sep 08 2013 | 10:08A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While we haven`t had a ton of mSATA drives come across our desk, the ones that have are pretty much the best you can buy right now. The M5M did an admirable job on all of our tests with performance numbers that were tops in the charts in many instances which was frankly a bit of a surprise given the competition..."

Powercolor Devil HD 7870 Review
     Sun, Sep 08 2013 | 10:08A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That being said the Devil is the first card in this round of comparisons to hit a 1300+MHz core clock stably. For an almost 19% boost in clock speed, the effort is worth the time commitment to grab that extra free performance. To help you out in that endeavor, PowerColor has its own overclocking utility called Powerup Tuner that is fully functional and features a Devil series skin to add some continuity to the branding. For the most part this utility does everything you will need it to with one exception for me; the maximum voltage that could be applied was in the 1.285v range while other utilities would allow 1.30v. Not a major faux pas as I have seen much worse. It does give the user that is afraid of kicking up the voltage to high some sense of security."

Intel Iris Pro 5200 graphics review: the end of mid-range GPUs?
     Sun, Sep 08 2013 | 9:02A | Chipset | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We reviewed Intel’s latest integrated graphics processor, the Iris Pro 5200. Intel wants us to believe it can rival the performance of mid-range graphics cards, specifically the mobile Nvidia GeForce GT 650M graphics card. We ran our standard benchmarks on it, along with some gaming benchmarks, and it turns out that Intel truly delivers this time.

Toshiba Nearline MG03ACA400 4TB SATA III HDD
     Sun, Sep 08 2013 | 6:19A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although 5TB hard disk drives should be upon us by now with 6TB ones following closely behind them it seems that manufacturers feel that 4TB is still more than just enough for the majority of consumers and even though they are probably right (judging by all the people i know) Ive said it many times and will say it many more than until 10TB drives (or more) make their appearance in the market enthusiasts and professionals alike will not be completely satisfied (when you have 20-30TB of data it`s neither easy nor convenient to have twice as many drives around just for backup purposes). Still it`s not like we have any other choice so at least we can do our best to follow the flow of things and test as many 4TB hard disk drives as we can get our hands on so all of you can know what to expect. Such is the latest Nearline MG03ACA400 SATA III HDD model by Toshiba which we have on our test bench today."

Ogio Gambit 17 Laptop Backpack Review @ TestFreaks
     Sat, Sep 07 2013 | 6:46P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today for review Ive got the latest backpack from Ogio called the Gambit 17 which should fit most laptops up to 15 inches in size. The Gambit is what I would consider a guys style backpack as it just looks rugged and the black and red color scheme just works well. The Gambit 17 has plenty of features and of course many pockets for all of your stuff including places for your laptop and a special pocket for your tablet and even, my favorite, a built-in hard case for your sunglasses! So read on to learn more"

Corsair Vengeance K95 Review @ Vortez
     Sat, Sep 07 2013 | 6:46P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Vengeance K95 was also part of a broader range update Corsair began earlier this year, an update which included other input devices and audio peripherals. Just as the K70 is an evolution of the K65, so the K95 is the next step for a design ushered in by the K90. Whilst the Vengeance K70 could be said to specialise in First Person Shooters as a part of its gaming pedigree, the K95 has been substantially adapted to MMOs and similar titles that benefit from macro keys and a wide selection of key bindings. In common with the K70 Corsair have also augmented the design by using Cherry MX switches for every key, making it a marked improvement over its predecessor."

BIOSTAR Readies New AMD FM2+ Socket Motherboards
     Sat, Sep 07 2013 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
BIOSTAR is preparing a series of motherboards based on the new AMD FM2+ socket design. This is a revision of current FM2 APUs, both FM2+ & FM2 APUs can work on any FM2+ motherboard, chipsets include A88X, A78 and A55 chipsets; however, FM2+ APUs cannot work on existing FM2 motherboards due to different pin sockets ( A85X, A75, A55 chipsets).

In other words, the new AMD socket FM2+ motherboards will retain backwards compatibility with previous generation Socket FM2 APUs. BIOSTAR new line of FM2+ APU support motherboards is a great choice for users who wishes to reserve an opportunity for future upgrades and taking the advantages from AMD’s new FM2+ infrastructure. The new BIOSTAR FM2+ socket boards are backwards compatible with the older generation APUs and they are ready in production.

These boards will proudly show off BIOSTAR’s in-house technology, such as audio, power regulation upgrades and more…

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.
