Inno3D iChill GeForce GTX 660 review
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Inno3D iChill GeForce GTX 660 is an excellent graphics card. Due to the high clock frequencies it's one of the fastest GeForce GTX 660s we've tested, and the three-slot cooler keeps temperatures down which leaves overclocking potential. And in addition to cooling better than the competition, it's also very silent.

Prison Architect: One of 2013's Most Interesting PC Games
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 4:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Prison Architect is like 'SimPrison', if there ever was one, made by people who seem to be damn near fearless about making video games about uncomfortable topics. The game is from the indie studio Introversion, who have also made the saddest/best game about nuclear war. Here's a brief interview with Introversion's own architects about their newest work. They served up some fascinating answers about the possibilities of a game about building and running a prison.

Intel's Haswell: Optimized For Mobility
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If Haswell's debut on the desktop has left you feeling a bit flat, the company's mobile efforts may be the pick-me-up you've been hoping for. If you step back and think about the entire CPU market, the last two years have been marked by tremendous shifts in consumer buying habits, as tablet sales skyrocketed and desktop/laptop sales have slumped. Intel recognized years ago that Atom, no matter how polished, would never be able to address the entire portable market -- the usage scenarios between a laptop and a smartphone are just too wide. The company therefore decided to take a two-pronged approach to this brave new frontier of computing, with a new Atom architecture anchoring the ultra-low power segments while more traditional x86 cores were prepped for form factors no one at Intel dreamed of ten years ago. Some of the reasons Haswell is less exciting on the desktop, in other words, is because Intel prioritized a mobile architecture that would draw as little power as possible, while still offering excellent performance..

ADATA Displays New Gen LSI SandForce
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As much as we would like to say that we wouldn’t have believed it if we hadn’t seen it, the truth is that this is one of those finds that has to be seen in operation first hand before anyone will believe it…but it was right there before our eyes. Today at Computex 2013 in Taipei, Taiwan, ADATA introduced their new line of enterprise SSDs. One SSD in particular, the ADATA SX2000, caught our eye right off. The sticker on the SX2000 depicts a capacity of 1600GB and, unlike just about every other notebook form factor SSD on the planet, the SX2000 has a PCIe 2.0 x4 interface rather than SATA. This SSD is the size of any typical drive you might see in a notebook.

SilverStone AR02
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“A few weeks ago we took a look at SilverStone’s AR01 CPU cooler from their new Argon series of coolers. We were thoroughly impressed with its price, sound levels and overall performance. The Argon series is comprised of three coolers – the AR01, AR02 and the AR03. Each looks similar at first glance but is geared towards a different end user. The AR02 is the low man on the totem pole in the lineup (as far as size is concerned) but don’t think that makes it unworthy. We’ve got the AR02 to check out, so let’s get to it!”

Dyconn Condor DE743A-S Triple LCD Monitor Stand
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 12:01P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“With the popularity of multi-monitor gaming and workstations in recent years, sometimes looking for the right solution to mount your display(s) can become a daunting task. While 3 monitors on your desk can work, it still takes up a lot of real estate; however, the purpose of multi-monitor stands is to eliminate this problem. It’s a solution which offers one mount to hold all three displays and free up valuable desktop space for your other accessories. When it comes to shopping for triple LCD mounts their are very few options available and most of them come with high cost. Today we are going to be looking at a Dyconn Condor DE743A-S Triple LCD Monitor Stand that doesn’t break the bank, but offers some great versatility.”

NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 780
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“You’re only as good as your last success, and today marks the highly anticipated launch of Nvidia’s latest, the GeForce GTX 780. We, like many others, expect big things from “Kepler 2.0?. But gaming horsepower is only part of the equation these days; lower power consumption and temperatures also tell the tale, and Nvidia is promising improvements for these as well. Fine and good, but we’re a demanding bunch and we want more. And to address that, Nvidia is introducing more GeForce Experience features such as Shadowplay, as well as Adaptive Temperature Control, and not to mention an updated GPU Boost 2.0. So, is the GeForce GTX 780 fast? Hellya. Does it overclock like a beast? Hellya. There’s a boatload of information to cover here, so let’s get to it.”

Enermax Triathlor FC 550W Power Supply Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 11:09A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enermax is a brand whose strong product is their power supplies, especially when it comes to the high-end spectrum. Their Platimax and MAXREVO units are some of the best out there. But these units are not cheap in terms of cost. Enermax knows not everyone has a ton of cash to throw at a new power supply so they have created the Triathlor series of power supplies. There are actually the Triathlor and Triathlor FC units. The Triathlor units are lower wattage and non-modular and the Triathlor FC units are higher wattage and are modular. Today we are checking out the Triathlor FC 550W unit which is 80PLUS Bronze certified and offers quiet operation."

EXCLUSIVE: LSI SandForce Next Gen SSD Controller With 1800MB/s Speeds Discovered at Computex
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 11:09A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SSD world has just taken a massive step forward with the unintended displaying of LSI SandForce next generation flash storage processor, Codenamed GRIFFIN, at Computex this week. Where other websites were noticing the incredible 1.6TB capacity of this SSD, The SSD Review observed that it is a single chip design, LSI SandForce driven, and capable of speeds of 1800MB/s read and write with 200,000 IOPS, all in a typical notebook 2.5design! Our later attempts to have the story refuted as a mistake in specifications met with negative results and this discovery indeed seems to be 100% authentic. Such performance has guaranteed once again that the original SandForce team, alongside with LSI, has once again made an enormous technological jump in the world of SSDs!"
