Sapphire HD 7950 FleX Dual-X Edition 3GB Review
     Fri, Jul 06 2012 | 1:49P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking this video card is as simple as booting up the Sapphire TriXX utility and moving some sliders around. I started at a baseline of 1050MHz on the core and 1500MHz on the memory. I took bigger steps on the core, making the jump from 1130MHz to 1150MHz and began to saw artifacting and snow start to show up. Backing down 5MHz at a time, I regained stability at 1135MHz, but I took it down another 4MHz to be conservative. The memory performed great and was rock stable until 1560MHz where it basically hit a wall. A few MHz here separated the memory from running great and complete failure. Compared to other HD 7950s, the clock speeds presented by this one aren`t as impressive - although the idea to this card is multimonitor support and not raw overclocking potential right out of the gate."

Nexus SM-5000 Silent Mouse @ Rbmods
     Fri, Jul 06 2012 | 1:05P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink

QPAD 5K LE Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Jul 06 2012 | 1:01P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 5K L.E, as the name suggests is a limited edition version of the 5K. The big selling point of the 5k L.E is the next generation gaming-grade laser sensor hailing from the halls of Avago - the A9800. The new laser allows a ridiculously high DPI of 8200 CPI capable of delivering a sample rate of 12000 fps. Not the highest we have sampled I grant you. The SteelSeries Sensei delivered an effective 11400 CPI however this CPI was achieved by the on-board ARM processor meaning the Sensei`s physical limit was in fact 5700 CPI. The QPAD 5K L.E betters this and hits a massive 8200 CPI without the need for additional processing. So while the QPAD has the highest physical CPI, the Sensei the highest theoretical CPI, the 5K L.E can hit it`s CPI without degradation of accuracy and precision."
