AMD Trinity A10-4600M Processor Review:
     Mon, May 28 2012 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD's second-generation Bulldozer core processor microarchitecture, codenamed Piledriver, has made headlines at HotHardware many times in the past few months, including our CES sneak peek of the chip that AMD is launching today for the mobile market, codenamed Trinity. What this launch is all about is AMD's answer to Intel's Ivy Bridge-based Core series processors for notebooks. It's that straightforward, though we'll start by level-setting expectations based on how both companies and their respective architectures approach computing workloads. For AMD, Trinity has also been reported as offering much-needed performance enhancements in IPC (Instructions Per Cycle) but also more of the same strength in gaming and multimedia horsepower, with an enhanced second generation Radeon HD graphics engine. In the pages ahead, we'll dive into AMD's new Trinity architecture and AMD's new A10 series APU, along with lots of benchmark data looking at the results of AMD's recent efforts from a number of angles.

QNAP TS-879 Pro & Synology
     Mon, May 28 2012 | 9:00A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hoping to drive small and medium business sales, NAS-makers have been pushing to deliver enterprise features such as cloud storage, virtualization support, automated backup software and iSCSI support. There's also been an effort to include technologies such as Link Aggregation, which can increase network bandwidth when dealing with multiple users and also provides redundancy in case one of the links fails. First seen over a decade ago, 10GbE is not a new technology, but it's been largely reserved for pricey enterprise devices. It's ten times faster than Gigabit Ethernet and only supports full duplex point to point links, which are generally connected by network switches, so 10GbE hubs don't exist.

REVIEW: SeaSonic X-Series 1050W @ PureOverclock
     Mon, May 28 2012 | 8:11A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SeaSonic has the latest product in their lineup which brings 80PLUS Gold certification, along with an innovative hybrid fan mode, called the X-Series 1050W. It appears to be very capable, at least on paper. We know that sheet specs certainly don`t tell the real story though, so let`s take a closer look at this X-Series 1050W unit to check out its performance."

Comay Venus Pro 3 240GB SSD Review
     Sun, May 27 2012 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just over a month ago, we conducted an analysis of what we thought to be the Comay Venus Pro 3 and, only after the review, were informed that we were actually looking at the Venus 3, an SSD that was not only branded incorrectly, but was also a special configuration for a specific customer. It appears our orders were mixed up. Comay apologized for the mix up and promised that we would be receiving a Venus Pro 3 soon enough where we could validate some vicious ‘SandForce Driven’ performance first hand.

AMD recently held a conference call to small preview of the new architecture used in its upcoming Trinity APU, designed as the successor to its current Llano platform. Neoseeker was invited to see what AMD had to share, and we're passing what we've learned to you in our first look at their second generation APU design. See what makes it tick under hood, and how (according to AMD) it compares to similar offerings from the competition.

Intel 520 Series 240GB Solid State Drive Review
     Sun, May 27 2012 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This week I had a blast working with a Intel 520 series 240GB Solid State Drive, this thing is as closest to a perfect woman as your gonna get. Its works really fast, does it quietly and doesn’t complain at all not even after a full 10hrs workload :-). No seriously, solid state drives are a must have these days. Imaging putting one in your notebook saving energy and increasing your workflow as well. I have been watching the prices from the start when they still were sky high, nowadays it’s becoming more and more affordable and even for the common folk like me.

Corsair Hydro H100 Self Contained Watercooling Heatsink Review
     Sun, May 27 2012 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Hydro H100 heatsink ships fully assembled, filled with a propylene glycol based coolant and plumbed. The waterblock is connected by 24cm of flexible FEP tubing to the heat exchanger which measures about 274x120x25mm in size. Two 120mm fans are included, these operate at 2600-1300RPM and create a fair bit of noise at full tilt. Corsair's Hydro H100 is a no fuss, self contained CPU liquid cooling solution for use on Intel socket LGA2011/1366/1155/1156/775 and AMD socket AM3/AM2/FM1 processors."

Razer Naga Hex Review @ Vortez
     Sun, May 27 2012 | 8:11A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Any gamer worth their salt will be familiar with the name Razer. Indeed it is perhaps the first manufacturer many will think off when considering a new gaming peripheral, be it a mouse, keyboard or headset. Razer are perhaps best known for their mice though. The Mamba, DeathAdder, Boomslang, Abyssus etc all share a common theme - snakes and it is with this theme that we bring you their latest offering, the Naga Hex."

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.

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.
