     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 2:08P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now that a majority of the key Linux performance areas have been covered on Phoronix as it pertains to Intel`s Ivy Bridge in dozens of different articles since its April launch date, it`s time to say a few words about the Panther Point motherboard that was used for many of these Phoronix tests: the ECS Z77H2-A2X Ultimate Golden Edition Extreme."

ECS Z77H2-AX 'Golden Board' Intel Z77 Motherboard Review
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 2:07P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ECS Z77H2-AX Black Extreme 'Golden Board' is without a doubt a very unique looking motherboard. It doesn't have the weapon type theme that we have seen on several other unique boards in recent history, but the gold on black color scheme did grow on me. I wasn't wild about it at first, but as I used the Z77H2-AX over the past few weeks and had it sitting on my test bench, I really began to like the look of it. Though unfortunately looks won't carry a board, it also has to have the performance. The ECS Z77H2-AX Black Extreme retails for $309.99, with a price tag at that level, it darn well better have performance to spare..."

Solid State Drive Performance Comparison Guide Rev. 3.1
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 2:05P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The solid state drive (SSD) is a new and relatively niche storage medium, but one that is slowly but steadily eating away at the universality of the hard disk drive. After all, solid state drives offer some big advantages over hard disk drives - extremely fast random accesses, absolutely silent operation, ability to withstand tremendous amounts of shock, vibration and atmospheric pressure (or the lack thereof). This comparison guide will compare the performance of all the solid state drives we can get our hands on. This would be similar to our Hard Disk Drive Performance Comparison Guide. It may start off small, but we intend to keep adding new solid state drives and even new benchmarks as we go along.

Sapphire HD 7870 FLeX @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now that we have seen all of the various stock and overclocked versions of the HD 7000 series cards, some of the more interesting variations are starting to trickle out. A good example of this is from Sapphire, not only do they have a WIDE variety of versions. They are actually introducing a new card today, the Sapphire HD 7870 FLeX. For those of you who have been around for a while, you have seen us cover their FLeX lineup before. With the FLeX lineup allowing you to run three monitors in Eyefinity without any active adapters, it is perfect for someone who is already running multiple monitors. As we have seen in the past, if you plan on gaming in Eyefinity you need to have the power to push your favorite games, the HD 7870 is the fastest FLeX card we have tested to date, if any card can do it, it should.

Posted by: STAFF
"HDTVs in Sony's HX850 series offer lots of features, accurate colors, and a crystal clear picture, all in a stylish, energy-efficient frame. Despite their relatively low peak white output this edge-mounted LED line delivers very good image quality in both 2D and 3D, and the picture looks good from all angles."

AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Based on the 16 games that we tested with, 10 of which were DX11 titles, the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition was on average 5% faster than the GeForce GTX 680. However by far its biggest win came when testing DiRT 3 Showdown, where the 7970 GHz Edition was 52% faster, even so when removing that game it was still on average 2% faster.

Today we are taking a look at Sapphire's 7950 FleX Edition. With this card, there is no need to use expensive DisplayPort monitors or adapters for Eyefinity. Add to that an upgraded cooler, overclocked core, and the raw power of a 7950, and we may just have a winner here.

Posted by: STAFF
This is the first paragraph you read when clicking the about tab on Addonics website. Kinda does make you gohmm interesting. Making data storage easier. Who doesnt want that? With storage becoming a more talked about topic these days in the tech world its not surprising more, and more companies would want to provide solutions for users storage needs, and wants. Now honestly when we first read the similar to LEGO blocks line we were likeummm so our storage solutions will come in red, blue, and yellow? But in all seriousness providing a line of products that work with each other to maximize storage efficiency to us doesnt sound like such a block head idea. See what what we did there? Ha!"

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.
