     Sat, Jul 28 2012 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the last three months, Real World Tech has migrated our website to new infrastructure and an updated user interface. While this has been very rewarding, and I hope you all enjoy our redesign - I am happy to return to writing technical articles.

Our first new article is Computational Efficiency for CPUs and GPUs in 2012. In this article, we examine the theoretical computational efficiency from the most recent generation of processors.

Sony VAIO T13 review: Ultrabook according to Sony
     Sat, Jul 28 2012 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The styling of the Sony VAIO T13 is characteristic for the sleek laptops of this Japanese manufacturer. It's of course a matter of personal taste, but we think it looks very good. You can clearly see the resemblance with the deluxe VAIO Z. The trademark screen is present, which raises the back somewhat into a more comfortable typing position. The Ultrabook itself is a bit of a mixed bag. It has excellent battery life, but the performance and display are subpar.

An HTPC Perspective: Get Excited About CableCARDs and Tuners
     Sat, Jul 28 2012 | 12:32A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now that weve talked (a lot) about the hardware and the interesting things it can do, lets take a visual look at some hardware! On the next page, well take a quick visual tour of a CableCARD and the HDHomeRun Prime TV tuner. SiliconDust isn`t the only game in town though, there are plenty of other good tuners out there. The HDHR Prime was just the one that worked the best for my specific setup. Which ones do you use in your HTPCs?"

Diablotek Abyss White ATX Mid Tower Case Review @ TestFreaks
     Sat, Jul 28 2012 | 12:29A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Diablotek has sent us over another case for review, this one is called the Abyss and its mid tower case yes, but its also whats considered a budget case as its rather inexpensive. The Abyss I got for review is all white inside and out with plenty of room for large video cards and a few hard drives. The case comes ready for USB 3.0 and even water cooling if you want to go that route. Its not a bad case overall but it does have a few flaws "

Valve's Gabe Newell Thinks Windows 8 Will Kill PC Gaming
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 4:16P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Valve founder Gabe Newell had a conversation recently in which he dropped some rather odd predictions concerning the future of the PC market. Newell took time out of his busy day spent rolling around naked on heaps of money and thinking of things to do besides Half Life: Episode 3 to share his opinion on Windows 8.

The Android Dilemma - An Open Platform Open to Piracy? @ Techgage
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 4:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Unlike its leading competitor, iOS, Android is about as open as a traditional desktop OS. As such, piracy is no stranger here, and some developers speculate that the situation is made worse by the fact that it is in fact open. We analyze that and other thoughts, and try to evaluate whether or not closing Android would solve anything."

Orange San Diego - Intel Inside Android Smartphone Review @ HardwareHeaven.com In June Orange announced their latest own brand handset, manufactured by Gigabyte and based on a reference design by Intel which also appears from other brands in locations like India (Xolo X900) the San Diego runs on an ATOM CPU making it different to the norm, right from the outset. Today we have a San Diego handset on our test bench to find out if it can follow on from the success of Orange`s previous devices and whether it is desirable in a very crowded marketplace."

Google Nexus 7 Tablet Review @ Legit Reviews

We weren`t sure what kind of tablet experience we should expect for $199 when we started this review. After using the Nexus 7 for a bit we quickly found that this tablet to fully functional and extremely fast. To be honest we were curious how this tablet would do because Adobe recently announced that it will no longer support the Flash Player browser plugin for Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and onwards..."

Plextor M3 Pro SSD Review - XSReviews
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 1:44P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Plextor is not a name that you would have immediately associate with SSD manufacture -- they`re probably best known to old timers as a leading manufacturer of CD/DVD drives -- but they`ve been in the business a while. Unlike Intel or Samsung who have made their mark with their own brand controllers and software, Plextor has opted to go for a third party Marvell controller. These controllers are used to great effect in the popular Crucial M4, but require some special firmware to really unlock their potential. Thankfully, Plextor have opted to do just that and their earlier M3 series SSDs were some of the fastest available. With the M3 Pro, they look to offer a premium option that promises even greater performance. Let`s find out if they`re able to deliver on their word. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Corsair Vengeance Lineup Part two Mice @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 11:52A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this week I took a look at the K60 and K90 Vengeance keyboards from Corsair. I was impressed with their unique take on the mechanical keyboard. Prior to looking at their keyboards I also took a look at the Vengeance 2000 wireless headset. To round out our coverage we of course need to check out Corsairs Vengeance gaming mice. We know that Corsair always takes a different path with any product they introduce and I am excited to see what they did differently in the gaming mouse market, a market that has become fairly stagnant with higher DPI, more buttons, and more lighting be the focus from most manufactures."

Posted by: STAFF
Silverstone has taken the already compact FT03 and successfully shrunk it to fit a Mini-ITX board, while still allowing for long graphics cards to be used. Has Silverstone managed to find the perfect balance between compact dimensions and compatibility, or does the shrink go too far?"

Giada A51 Ultra Mini PC @ Pro-Clockers
     Fri, Jul 27 2012 | 10:30A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One device we did not mention is the computer. A PC is the most cost effective way of connecting to the TV and not only being able to display your pictures, stream your videos and listen to your music but after you have done all that you can browse the internet maybe even play a game or two. And with a PC being as small or mini as they are they flow with all of the other components that make up your media theatre system without being the center of the setup. We have seen a few mini systems come across our table. They mostly have come from Sapphire and Asrock and we have seen them both preform a"

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.

Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 Intel X79 LGA2011 Motherboard In-Depth Review

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.
