OCC E3 2012 Awards
     Sun, Jun 24 2012 | 9:10A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Where do I begin? No release date? No pricing? Technical issues? Lackluster multi-platform titles? Well when I put it like that, it`s no wonder the Wii U is my biggest disappointment of E3, right? Nintendo is still shooting to release the Wii U by the end of the year, yet no mention of a price? That`s a problem! The other major problem? Framerate issues when using two GamePad controllers. At last year`s E3, Nintendo naively announced it would only support one GamePad. That has thankfully changed, but if the technical issues aren`t fixed, that could be a major problem. But going back to the lack of pricing again, we also don`t know what a system purchase will include - one GamePad or two?"

AMD Licenses ARM Technology: AMD Leans on ARM for Security
     Sat, Jun 23 2012 | 4:08P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last year after that particular AFDS, there was much speculation that AMD and ARM would get a whole lot closer. Today we have confirmed that in two ways. The first is that AMD and ARM are founding members of the HSA Foundation. This endeavor is a rather ambitious project that looks to make it much easier for programmers to access the full computer power of a CPU/GPU combo, or as AMD likes to call them, the APU. The second confirmation is one that has been theorized for quite some time, but few people have actually hit upon the actual implementation. This second confirmation is that AMD is licensing ARM cores and actually integrating them into their x86 based APUs."

Western Digital Scorpio 1TB (9.5mm) review
     Sat, Jun 23 2012 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Usually there is room for only a single hard disk in a laptop. When you need a lot of storage capacity the only option is to go for a 2.5-inch disk with the highest capacity possible. Western Digital is not the only one with 1 TB 2.5-inch disks on the market, but the fact that the new Western Digital Scorpio 1 TB is only 9.5 mm thick means it will fit in most laptops. The performance is very good, due to the high data-density it performs as well as 7200 RPM disks. And to be clear, 1 TB 7200 RPM drives don't exist yet.

Intel Thunderbolt: the new lightning fast technology
     Sat, Jun 23 2012 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What began as an impressive technology demo in 2009, appeared two years later as a new connector on the 2011 edition of the Apple MacBook Pro. Now the same technology is arriving in the world of Windows. Intel's Thunderbolt technology will drastically reduce the number of cables between computers and their peripheral devices.

LEPA LPC302 Mid-Tower Case Review
     Sat, Jun 23 2012 | 12:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
LEPA have been in the backseat when it comes to brand publicity for some years now, but we are starting to see a bit of a breakthrough happen with the company as it further advances in top power supplies. LEPA don’t have a vast range of computer cases, but they are building on this area, as you will see as we review the LEPA LPC302 ATX Mid-Tower case. It is not the most attractive and memorable of names, but hopefully the mid-range design can be more memorable.

ASRock H77 Pro4 MVP Intel LGA 1155 Motherboard Review
     Sat, Jun 23 2012 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Who like to buy a current Ivy Bridge LGA 1155 CPU or would like to acquire a new motherboard for an existing Sandy Bridge CPU can select between some new chipsets like e.g. the Intel Z77, H77 and Q77 chipset. Today we have chosen a more inexpensive ASRock H77 Pro 4/MVP Intel LGA1155 board with H77 chipset for review. The layout and the basic equipment of the ASRock Z77 Pro4 is nearly identical with the approx. 30 Euros cheaper ASRock H77 Pro 4/MVP motherboard, we test today at ocinside.de. However, there are very clear differences between the H77 vs Z77 motherboard that become important especially when overclocking. Overclockers should read the details inside of this review before they purchase a H77 motherboard.

Ultrabooks vs. 13" MacBook Air: Is the Apple Tax Real?
     Sat, Jun 23 2012 | 12:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel is putting a lot of weight behind the Ultrabook concept and expects it to be the main driver of PC market growth in the short term. Apple has already experienced some of this with the MacBook Air, which has rapidly become one of the best sellers in the Mac lineup. Arguably it's the laptop to beat if you are looking into buying an ultrabook-styled portable. With that in mind, we’re taking a couple of Wintel alternatives to check how well they stack up next to the new 13-inch MacBook Air and perhaps settle the old debate about the so-called “Apple Tax” — at least in this category, since there's no way a single comparison can be representative of the entire Apple Tax argument.

Silverstone Kublai KL04 @ techPowerUp
     Sat, Jun 23 2012 | 11:59A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Silverstone is known for pushing the envelope with unique internal layouts. The Kublai KL04 series does just that within the bounds of a mid-tower. We take a closer look at the case to see, if Silverstone has done it again, or if they have not managed to reinvent the wheel this time around."

Corsair Obsidian Series 550D Case Review @ Legit Reviews

Posted by: STAFF
Now that Corsair has figured out the formula to churn out enthusiast grade cases it is no surprise they tried their hand at building a silent case. The Corsair Obsidian 550D borrows a lot of the features from the rest of their case line up and even adds a few new ones such as silencing panel on all but the rear fan ports to allow you to run cool or silent..."

SilverStone Fortress FT03-MINI Review @ Vortez
     Sat, Jun 23 2012 | 8:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fusing together the looks and charm of the original the FT03-Mini has been reduced in size by a whopping 50%. The feature-set of the FT03-Mini has been rationalised to be accommodated by the reduced size of the chassis, with the aim of catering condensed, Mini-ITX systems. Can this smaller variant to the classic Fortress series impress us again? Let`s find out!"

AMD Licenses ARM Technology - ARM TrustZone technology Coming To APUs @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Jun 22 2012 | 4:08P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the past year there has been much speculation that AMD and ARM would enter some sort of an IP licensing deal. Many expected to hear some big announcement like AMD licensing ARM?s CPU cores or ARM licensing AMD`s Radeon IP, but that didn`t exactly happen. That changed today when AMD announced it will integrate the ARM TrustZone technology into future Accelerated Processing Units (APUs) via a system-on-a-chip (SoC) design methodology."

Bitfenix Shinobi XL: mild-mannered powerhouse
     Fri, Jun 22 2012 | 4:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Do you need to house an XL-ATX motherboard, up to nine expansion cards, five 5.25-inch drives and seven 3.5-inch drives? And would you like to do so in a case that isn't visible to astronauts on the ISS? Then Bitfenix claims to have the perfect solution for you with the Shinobi XL. OK, it's not that small, but still more subtle than many cases out there. As the name suggests, there is more to this case than meets the eye, not just a lot of space. Time to take a closer look.

Apple MacBook Pro with Retina review
     Fri, Jun 22 2012 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The answer to the question "What is the best laptop for MacOS X" is easy. It's this 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina. It's light-weight, powerful and has a fantastic screen. The same holds true for the Windows environment, unless you're a hardcore gamer. In that case you probably want a more powerful graphics card. The price of the new MacBook Pro with Retina is rather high though. The entry-level version with a 2.3 GHz quad-core Intel Core i7, 256 GB SSD and 8 GB RAM costs £1,799. The 2.6 GHz version with 512 GB SSD costs £2,299. If that's still under your budget, you have the option of 16 GB RAM, a 768 GB SSD, and a faster Core i7 processor as well. Even with the high price in mind, this is still a very unique and innovate laptop that combines high performance with low weight and good battery life, not to mention the beautiful display. The absence of upgrading options and the daunting price tag are not enough to prevent us from giving the MacBook Pro with Retina a Gold Award.

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.
