Club3D HD 7850 Royal Queen 1 GB @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Aug 01 2012 | 9:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Club3D`s HD 7850 RoyalQueen comes with a modest 1 GB of memory, which is half that of a typical HD 7850. Nevertheless we got some interesting results in our testing. The card is just as fast as the 2 GB HD 7850, at full HD resolutions and below. Coming at a more than reasonable $195, the card is also one of the most affordable choices on the market."

Posted by: STAFF
The Zeus Thunder 2500 SE showed us that you can get a very nice custom PC from a large system builder like CyberPowerPC. The wide variety of components that you get to select from and the unbeatable prices are impressive. If you are looking to build a new PC you should really take a look at what CyberPowerPC has to offer as you might be surprised..."

ASUS Maximus V Extreme review: ultimate Z77 board
     Wed, Aug 01 2012 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Maximus V Extreme is ASUS' flagship Z77 motherboard, and that's reflected by its £310 price tag. That's actually about £45 more than you can spend on the most high-end Ivy Bridge CPU. Fortunately you do get something for your money. ASUS has pretty much added any feature that could be even remotely useful for overclockers, which is also the intended audience for this board.

Apple MacBook Pro with Retina Display Review
     Wed, Aug 01 2012 | 9:01A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Apple’s coveted Retina display has finally found its way to a full-size notebook courtesy of the latest MacBook Pro. But anyone familiar with this new system knows that Apple didn’t simply add a higher resolution display to the standard MacBook Pro frame. Instead, there’s an entirely reworked chassis that’s nearly as thin as the MacBook Air and weighs more than a pound less than the standard Pro. Customers can also configure a Retina system with up to 16GB of RAM and 768GB of flash storage, versus a maximum of 8GB of RAM and 512GB of solid state storage on a standard Pro. But hey, who are we kidding, the only reason that most people are going to dish over the extra cash for Apple’s latest and greatest is the 2880 x 1800 resolution goodness of the Retina display. And I’ll go ahead and let you in a little secret: it’s a thing of beauty.

Sony Bravia HX850: great picture quality for a good price
     Wed, Aug 01 2012 | 9:00A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sony has created a very good series with the HX850 product line. We like the monolithic design and the wide, long base, but would have preferred a non-glossy finish on the screen itself. The picture quality of the 55-inch model we tested is excellent, and the X-Reality Pro engine is effective at sharpening the image and filtering out noise.

SilverStone EC01 USB 3.0 Internal 19-Pin Dual Port PCI Express Card Review @MissingRemote
     Wed, Aug 01 2012 | 1:47A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some of our recent enclosure reviews (SilverStone TJ08-E , Fractal Design Define Mini) have featured external USB 3.0 ports requiring a connection to a 19-pin header required by the USB 3.0 specification which poses a problem for most motherboards to date. While SilverStone was kind enough to provide an internal USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 adapter with the TJ08-E, it would be ideal to take advantage of the USB 3.0 capability. Enter SilverStone?s EC01 PCI Express card providing a 19-pin internal connector capable of supporting two USB 3.0 ports. *"

XFX Radeon HD7850 2GB Black Edition Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Jul 31 2012 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overall I was very pleased with the performance of the XFX 7850 Black Edition. Their Dual Dissipation cooling system seems to be very effective, as it was able to keep our test card at a very reasonable 69 degrees Celsius at full load. The Ghost Thermal Technology allows the air of the fans to push through the fins of the heatsink down onto the PCB and VRMs to ensure proper cooling all the way around..."

NZXT Aperture M Multi-Media Hub @ Pro-Clockers
     Tue, Jul 31 2012 | 10:29A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new Aperture M is definitely a simple tool like all the other readers out there but NZXT had enough imagination to make it flow with today`s popular styled cases. The Aperture M has the same mesh material that we see on a large majority of the cases on the shelf at your local electronic store. By doing this the builder can keep the mesh style flowing. "

Sapphire HD 7970 6GB Toxic Edition Review
     Tue, Jul 31 2012 | 9:15A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it came to overclocking this card I was pleased to see the clock speeds of 1235MHz on the core and 1735MHz on the 6GB of memory. The only other HD 7970 I have tested to reach this level was a factory overclocked and water cooled HD 7970; driving the cooling significantly lower while needing more current than I had to use on the Toxic Edition HD 7970. Sapphire added to the feature set on the Toxic Edition with several means of overclocking the card. The first option is the Lethal Boost button that boosts the clock speeds on the core up to a dynamically boosted 1200MHz and 1600MHz on the 6GB of memory."

First there is the access point / router called WHR-G300N V2 which peaks at 300mbps speeds and then a USB adapter called WLI-UC-G450 which peaks at 450mbps. Read the whole review to find out more!"

Taiwan's growth is downgraded as its economy contracts
     Mon, Jul 30 2012 | 11:27P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The economy contracted 0.16% compared to the previous year, the statistics agency said. Analyst were expecting slight growth. The agency also cut its forecast for full year growth to 2.08% down from 3.03%. Asian countries are reeling from a drop in demand from a key market, Europe. China, another major trade partner for Taiwan, especially for many of its high-tech goods, has also seen its own economy slow in recent months. "Given how weak Western markets remain, Beijing's loosening must start to lift mainland demand soon if Taiwan is to achieve a meaningful recovery in second half of 2012," said Donna Kwok from HSBC. "

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.
