ASUS Matrix HD 7970 Platinum Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Nov 21 2012 | 4:07P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS HD 7970 Matrix Platinum 3GB video card will go down in the history books as the best AMD Radeon HD 7970 graphics card ever made. This card has so many features on it that you could literally spend all day talking about each and every nuance on it. ASUS designed this card to be the fastest single-GPU video card on the market and it looks like they easily achieved that goal and then some..."

Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini – a small S3
     Wed, Nov 21 2012 | 4:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung Galaxy S III Mini convinces as a smartphone. The hardware may not be the latest and the greatest, but it's powerful enough to ensure a smooth user experience. However, the 'S III' in the name creates expectations that aren't entirely met. Sure, the software and all the features are there, but the hardware just is a bit too underwhelming. Especially considering the £300 you'll reportedly be asked to pay for this device. If you're not particularly bothered by the software and all the interesting features it has to offer, then the Galaxy S Advance may be the better option for you. This has the same hardware, but doesn't give you the 'S III' look and feel. It is, however, cheaper than the Mini.

Silverstone Heligon HE02 Fanless Passive Heatsink Review
     Wed, Nov 21 2012 | 4:02P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Silverstone Heligon HE02 is being sold as a passive heatsink for sub-95W TDP processors, so today on Frostytech we'll put this big, boxy, silent heatsink through its passive paces. No fans will be used in the testing, just good old noise-less convection cooling. We should note that wire fan clips are supplied for users who wish to add two 120mm fans."

Lexar JumpDrive 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Wed, Nov 21 2012 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In this review PCSTATS is checking out Lexar's stylish 64GB JumpDrive Triton - a nice looking retractable thumb drive housed in a weighty metal alloy case. Lexar's USB 3.0 thumb drive is rated for speeds of 155MB/s read and 150MB/s write -- that's pretty quick. For a clearer picture of its capabilities PCSTATS will need to benchmark the Lexar JumpDrive Triton against comparable USB 3.0 drives of similar capacities."

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 680 4GB
     Wed, Nov 21 2012 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The games that responded the best to the extra frame buffer included Battlefield 3 and Medal of Honor Warfighter, while increases were also seen in DiRT 3 and Alan Wake. From our results it is clear anyone looking to game at the extreme triple-monitor resolution of 7680x1600 will require not one but rather two GeForce GTX 680 4GB graphics cards. Still when spending over $3000 on monitors it’s not hard to imagine dishing out over $1100 on GPUs.

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

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.
