A Futurelooks News Flash - COMPUTEX 2012 Coverage Featuring GIGABYTE BitFenix and CORSAIR (Video)
     Mon, Jun 11 2012 | 9:06A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that, If youve been keeping an eye on our Twitter and Facebook, youll know that we promised to come up with some video coverage of COMPUTEX. But how could we do that if none of the Futurelooks Team are in Taipei? Well, because companies that we cover year round think our readers are so fantastic, they put themselves in front of the camera using their smartphones, palmcorders and really, whatever they could get their hands on, and sent us a bunch of great clips to work with. As a result, weve been able to assemble some pretty decent looking coverage just for you. So hats off to GIGABYTE, BitFenix and CORSAIR because heres what they were showing off at COMPUTEX Taipei 2012! *"

     Sun, Jun 10 2012 | 9:23A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ultrabooks are certainly not hard to come by these days, but the Vaio T13112FXS from Sony aims to be different. It has a sub-$800 price tag, a 500GB hard drive and a new Intel Core Ivy Bridge processor. While a really great deal, it does suffer from a mediocre display and an uncomfortable keyboard."

This is the improved version of the x264 HD Benchmark 4.0 benchmark which had become a standard CPU benchmark for Tech ARP as well as many other hardware enthusiasts. We have completely revamped the benchmark by using a new 1080p video sample, as well as added both 64-bit and 32-bit tests using the latest r2200 x264 encoder. There have been other major changes under the hood as well, to make it a better stress test for newer multi-core processors. All these changes make the x264 HD Benchmark 5.0 the new best tool for testing the full capabilities of modern multi-core, multi-threaded processors."

Filco Majestouch-2 Ninja Cherry MX Brown Review - XSReviews
     Sun, Jun 10 2012 | 9:10A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Filco Majestouch-2 is one of the most well known mechanical keyboards in the gaming world. The Japanese keyboards have been produced for years, but only around 2008 did they become popular when they were adopted by the booming South Korean eSports scene in games like StarCraft and WarCraft III. With the rapid expansion of the Western gaming scene in the last couple of years on the backs of games like StarCraft II and League of Legends, Filco mechanical keyboards have become increasingly popular worldwide. Today, were looking at a unique variant of popular Majestouch-2 model called the Ninja. Like the Das Keyboard, the Ninja doesnt have any legends on the top of its keys they are blank. However, instead of being entirely removed in the case of the Das Keyboard, the Ninja has its legends printed on the front of the keys. Its an unusual configuration, but it makes a lot of sense it means the key legends wont be worn away over time and it looks pretty amazing as well. Now that weve introduced the keyboard, lets have a look at its major features and specifications from the manufacturer. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

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.
