[Tech ARP] The new x264 HD Benchmark 5.0 is here!
     Sun, Jun 10 2012 | 9:11A | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
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."

ASUS GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores DirectCU II Video Card @ Pro-Clockers
     Sat, Jun 09 2012 | 11:06A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now, we get to the point of this review we are conducting today. Below the GTX 670, NVidia has not bought anything new to the market. While AMD has the 78xx sitting in that upper mainstream realm. As of right now the older GTX 560 and GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores covers that area for NVidia until they release the GTX 660. Yes, the GTX 560 Ti 448 Cores is a little aged but it definitely still holds its hold when it comes to gaming. There is no game on the market that you can say this card will not give you a delightful gaming experience."

Rosewill RK-9000BR Mechanical Keyboard @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Jun 09 2012 | 9:23A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having used and reviewed quite a few mechanical keyboards in the last year I have now tried out almost every type of Cherry MX switch out there except the Cherry MX Brown and Clear switches. Thankfully, in this during this review of the Rosewill RK-9000BR I was able to knock yet another switch off my list. The Cherry MX Brown switches used on the Rosewill RK-9000BR provide would be customers with the best of both Cherry MX Black, and Blue switches without the negatives of each. Benchmark Reviews will be evaluating the Rosewill RK-9000BR to see how these switches hold up to daily use and what they are like to use for an extended amount of time when compared to their red, black, and blue counterparts."

EVGA GeForce GTX 690 review
     Sat, Jun 09 2012 | 9:10A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the EVGA GeForce GTX 690. The GTX 690, in a nutshell, NVIDIA took two of their best (Kepler GK104) GPUs, placed them onto one card, topped it off with a very nice and dandy cooler and called this symbiosis of components a single solution graphics card. Internally on that card a small PLX chip functions as a PCI Express bridge in-between the two GPUs and sure, that means SLI is in full effect. Read the review here"

Building a Low Cost APU System (Media, Productivity and Gaming) @ HardwareHeaven.com Recently AMD set us the challenge of building a low cost APU system to see if it would be possible to build a decent media/productivity/gaming PC on a minimal budget. It`s something different to a review which is always a nice change so we set about looking at what could be done when pretty much every component has to cost 60 or less."

LIAN LI PC-Q05 Thin Mini-ITX Chassis Review @MissingRemote
     Fri, Jun 08 2012 | 3:55P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Intel introduced the Thin Mini-ITX form factor with the DH61AG board, we were impressed with the performance and potential of the platform; however, the innovative form factor lacked any accompanying chassis to take advantage of the extra thin profile. Fortunately, that situation is changing with the introduction of LIAN LIs PC-Q05 which supports the new Thin Mini-ITX form factor. *"

Rosewill RK-8100 Gaming Keyboard Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Fri, Jun 08 2012 | 9:23A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What is a gaming keyboard? What specific requirements does a keyboard have before its considered in the gaming category? There is only one thing. Yeah, a lot of people will tell you different things like, a specific number of anti-ghosting key suppression (roll over), or the fact that it features mechanical key switches, or that the keys themselves light up, but none of these things are correct. Marketing is the only thing that defines a device as a gaming keyboard. Marketing and marketing alone is the only requirement for a regular keyboard to make the jump from standard desktop keyboard to a gaming one. In steps the Rosewill RK-8100. Rosewills claim to the best bang for buck when it comes to gaming keyboards."

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.
