AMD Piledriver/Trinity A10-5800K Compiler Tuning @ Phoronix
     Tue, Oct 16 2012 | 5:18P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With the initial Linux results for the AMD A10-5800K Trinity APU now out of the way along with the Radeon HD 7660D graphics performance, in this article are some benchmarks looking at the impact of compiler tuning for the Piledriver cores using the common GCC compiler and testing different CPU micro-architecture targets."

Xclio Touch 787 Full Tower Case Review
     Tue, Oct 16 2012 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" Holy fans Batman! That’s the first thing I thought when I opened the box and started to examine the case I have for review today. The Xclio Touch 787 Full Tower Chassis features ten, yes that’s 10, 120mm fans pre-installed for you. I’m thinking that’s more than enough to keep any system running cool no matter how many video cards and hard drives and whatever else you’ve got inside. The amount of fans could be considered a feature yes, but the Touch 787 also has a built-in touch panel for controlling all of those fans which is great because ten fans can get kind of loud. The Touch 787 also has a very unique hard drive mounting system, and plenty of room inside for even the largest video cards."

Windows 8 Device Onslaught
     Tue, Oct 16 2012 | 4:01P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Microsoft has high hopes for Windows 8, its next generation operating system that represents perhaps the biggest change to the Windows ecosystem since Windows 95. Intel would call this release a "tock"; Microsoft calls it the future of computing, one in which mobile and stationary products are unified with a touch-friendly front-end that's supposed to be easy to navigate and easy on the eyes with a modernized look and feel. Alas, software is only half of the equation. It takes hardware to push a platform to its full potential, and there will be no shortage of Windows 8 devices when the OS drops in a couple of weeks...

Transcend SSD320 256GB SSD Review
     Tue, Oct 16 2012 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today Chris follows up the Transcend SSD720 review with the mainstream model, the SSD320. The SSD320 pairs asynchronous flash with the same SandForce controller found in the flagship 720 model. This combination reduces the total cost, but does it also significantly reduce performance?"

REVIEW: Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti @ PureOverclock
     Tue, Oct 16 2012 | 1:51P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti is the latest in the Kepler lineup, and while it may share a similar naming scheme as the GTX 660 Ti, it has some very distinct differences, not the least of which is a considerably lower price tag. Costing about $149 for the reference design (and about $10 to $20 more for most partner cards), this creates a very interesting scenario, as it sits just above the Radeon 7770 in terms of price, so the question is whether this new Kepler card has the horsepower to compete in areas other than simply price. Nvidia has been extremely successful with the Kepler products, so will this card measure up? Can it beat the competing Radeon cards? Let`s dive in and answer those questions and more.? "

Micron RealSSD P320h PCI Express SSD Review
     Tue, Oct 16 2012 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most of the PCIe SSD cards on the market today, with the exception of products from Fusion-io, still rely on SATA or SAS-based NAND controllers to interface on the backend of the device to the NAND array. PCIe cards from OCZ, Intel, LSI and others use controllers from LSI SandForce or the like. Fusion-io was the first company to introduce a true native PCI Express to NAND processor employed in their products, though Micron has also been cooking up their own native PCIe SSD technology for some time now. Today we're looking at the Micron P320h, a PCI Express SSD that was introduced to the market well over a year ago and has actually been shipping to OEM customers for some time, but is just now hitting the market for general availability. Micron partnered with IDT, a veteran semiconductor manufacturer out of San Jose that specializes high speed serial switching and memory interface technology. A match made in high bandwidth heaven, between a bellwether memory giant and a cutting-edge high speed logic manufacturer? Perhaps. Read on as we find out.

ASUS GTX 650 Ti DirectCU II TOP Review
     Tue, Oct 16 2012 | 9:09A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Overclocking results were impressive as well: 1255MHz core and 1463MHz memory from 1033MHz and 1350MHz respectively! The two diagnostic LEDs near the 6-pin PCIe power connection should help users and technical support in trouble shooting any issues relating to power. The ASUS GPU Tweak software seems really useful and worked well at overclocking and monitoring the graphics card. With the four outputs available almost everyone should be able to plug the card in and run it. Only three outputs can be used for NVIDIA Surround Technology though."

Posted by: STAFF
While the P8Z77-V Deluxe brings to the table some pretty impressive hardware specs, it can also hold its own in the bundled software department courtesy of ASUS`s Ai Suite II. We can`t say enough about how useful this compilation of utilities is for troubleshooting and making incremental adjustments to every aspect of our PCs.

Asus Vulcan ANC @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Oct 16 2012 | 9:09A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few weeks ago we took a look at the Asus ROG Xonar Phoebus audio card. Asus, with its Xonar brand, has made a big name for themselves in the audio card market. When it comes to things to attach to their sound cards, they are a little less known. They really introduced a new gaming headset with built in Active Noise Canceling. When I hear about this, I couldnt help but think about all of the times Ive been at a LAN and wished I could cutout the hum of 100+ gaming PCs. Because of that I jumped at the chance to take a closer look. How will the active noise canceling work out in a gaming headset?"
