[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - AGP Secondary Lat Timer
     Wed, Jun 19 2013 | 4:45P | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the *AGP Secondary Lat Timer** * setting."

Sony VAIO T Series 15 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Jun 19 2013 | 8:21A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The all-new Sony VAIO T Series 15 has an attractive design, a beautiful 1080p HD touch display, long battery life and very good performance. It does lack a Blu-ray drive, which would have put it over the top, and the touch pad wasn`t the best."

Nanoxia Deep Silence 2 @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Jun 19 2013 | 3:52A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Nanoxia Deep Silence 2 is a simpler version of the Deep Silence 1, with a noticably lower price tag and the aim to offer the same core functionality. We take the heavy case for a spin to see what had to change for the case to be offered at a very interesting 30 Euros less than the number 1 of the DS series."

Metro: Last Light Review
     Tue, Jun 18 2013 | 8:49P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What about the nearest to it; Metro 2033? How does it compare to its predecessor? I would say they come out about equal, as far as overall quality and experience. As discussed in the story section, 2033 and Last Light have a different mechanic to their stories, as the earlier title drives you through the world, and this one places you in it. This causes some aspects in one to be better than in the other, so without taking these differences into consideration, you cannot fairly compare these two titles to each other. When you do though, you find two very well made games that serve themselves and their franchise very well."

Intel DC S3500 Data Center SSD Review (480GB x 4) Speed Great Features and Rock Bottom Prices
     Tue, Jun 18 2013 | 7:50A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Let`s make it clear right from the start and not mix words when we say that the Intel DC S3500 is an enterprise/data center SSD through and through. Availability and pricing of the DC S3500 found early on the morning of release, however, is definitely going to tempt more than just the data center crowd. After all, the Intel DC S3500 has speeds above 500MB/s, 75K IOPS, AES 256-bit encryption, power loss data protection, advanced error correction, availability in 5mm and 7mm form factors, multiple capacities, up to 450TBW and a five year warranty. Compound this with great pricing (http://thessdreview.us7.list-manage.com/track/click?u=3d9b6193ffd32dd60e84fc74b&id=1800a17b9f&e=00e2c00bf2) and a controller that many have been just itching to see in a consumer SSD for some time and Intel just may have unexpectedly stumbled on a new crowd of buyers."
