OCZ Vertex 3.20 120 GB Review @ Ocaholic
     Fri, Apr 19 2013 | 6:39A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Vertex 3.20 OCZ officially launches their first product that features 20 nanometer NAND from the Intel/Micron joint venture. This step is quite a critical one for OCZ since it means that have to do a balancing act between endurance and price. There are quite a few manufacturers out there in the market that already offer TLC based SSD with significantly lower prices. At this point we just want to tell you, that OCZ does not got for TLC NAND, they stick to MCL chips and we think it`s a good compromise between not only price and endurance but also performance."

Enermax Ostrog GT Mid Tower Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Apr 18 2013 | 5:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enermax has been relatively quiet when it comes to cases. They have not had a case that has really stood out to us as of late. We hope that is going to change with the Ostrog GT Mid Tower. It features a unique design, room for 10 fans (three included), USB 3.0 support, a large side panel window, and room for a total of 10 hard drives! Enermax is looking to make a mark in the sub $100 segment with this case as it is currently selling for $74.99. Will this case impress? Read on as we find out!"

[Tech ARP] Your Wireless Mouse Or Keyboard Acting Up? Blame USB 3.0!
     Thu, Apr 18 2013 | 3:52P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Have you ever noticed that sometimes your wireless mouse or keyboard goes cranky - responding erratically to your movements or clicks, or sometimes not at all for a stretch of time? You might have tried replacing the battery, thinking that it might have just run out of juice but I`ll bet that didn`t work. The problem appears to occur randomly - most of the time, the mouse or keyboard works just fine, but sometimes, for some reason, it goes all bonkers, before suddenly becoming normal again. You might wonder then if someone has hacked into your system, or if there`s a ghost in the system. Well, the truth of the matter is that it`s just USB 3.0!"

Fwd: AMD Radeon HD 7790 Review - Sea Islands and Bonaire Make an Appearance
     Thu, Apr 18 2013 | 3:50P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD`s new Radeon HD 7790 is the first Sea Islands GPU to find its way to the channel market and Bonaire proves to be very compelling product in the sub-$200 market that is usually quite crowded. Because of NVIDIA`s gap in product that lies between $149 and $230 (GTX 650 Ti to the GTX 660) the Radeon HD 7790 should make a pretty big splash as long as it has that opening. The question is how long NVIDIA will wait to finally address this whole in its lineup that has existed for many months."

EVGA GTX 650 Ti Boost SC 2 GB @ techPowerUp
     Thu, Apr 18 2013 | 12:49P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
EVGA`s GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost SuperClocked comes with a large overclock of 92 MHz out of the box which gives it a significant performance boost over the reference design. Since it`s only $10 more expensive than the reference GTX 650 Ti Boost, the card actually offers a better price/performance ratio than the original."

Posted by: STAFF
Yesterday we reported, that somebody put an upcoming Radeon HD 7990 Malta on eBay. Things like this seem to happen more often these days but still, the entire story is quite unusual, since somebody actually bid an absolutely mindblowing stupid 96`000 US-Dollar for the card."

Sapphire Radeon HD 7790 OC Edition Video Card Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Apr 18 2013 | 9:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are taking a look at a brand new video card from Sapphire. We have been hearing about the Radeon 7790 over the past few weeks and earlier this year AMD said we would see an HD 8000 series towards the end of the year and they would be refreshing their HD 7000 lineup with new chips. The HD 7790 is the first card that is part of this refresh, based on the brand new Bonaire 28nm graphics processor. The Bonaire graphics processor is based off of AMDs graphics core next (GCN) architecture and features 896 stream processors. We are looking at Sapphires version, which is the HD 7790 OC with Dual-X. The Dual-X is for Sapphires own unique cooling system on the card. This card features a 1075MHz core clock, 1GB of GDDR5 memory and has dual DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort connections. This card is setup to compete directly with Nvidias GTX 650 Ti. Read on as we take a look..."

Posted by: STAFF
As far as features go, you don`t sacrifice anything when going with the Bolt. It`s a fully loaded system that offers multi-displays through the EVGA graphics card. It also has enough storage options to make everyone - other than massive file hoarders - happy. You could throw in a 4TB drive as well as two new Crucial M4 960GB SSDs for a stunning 5.8TB of storage - 1.8TB of that being very fast SSDs. . ."
