     Sun, May 13 2012 | 3:31A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD?s 7000 series is made up of 3 segments. Starting with the flagship 7900 which are the high-end cards. Then we have the 7700 series which has budget gamers in mind. Finally we have the 7800 series which sits right in the middle to hit the sweet spot between cost and performance. The 7800 series has 2 cards the 7850 and the 7870, today we are taking a look at the 7850. Not just any 7850 though, the 7850 Overclocked Edition from Sapphire. This card really makes the sweet spot even sweeter with a factory overclock moving the core up to 920MHz and the memory up to 1250MHz. Sapphire has also added their popular Dual-X cooler for better cooling performance. Read on to see what this card is all about."

Six SSDs in RAID 0: Intel vs AMD - which chipset scales the best?
     Sat, May 12 2012 | 12:03P | Chipset | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not very long ago it would have been a pipe dream for normal computer users to have multiple solid state drives in a RAID 0 configuration to achieve even higher read and write speeds. The recent price drop may conjure up feelings of the old days that our older readers probably remember, when hard drive storage was very expensive, but became increasingly more affordable. At any rate, buying more than one SSD has become more realistic now. And who says you need to stop at two drives? Hardware.Info tested RAID 0 configurations with up to six SSDs on both the Intel Z77 and the AMD SB950 chipsets to find out how the performance scales when you add more SSDs and which platform offers the best performance. Armed with six OCZ Vertex 4 128 GB SSDs we began our investigation.

Intel SSD 910 PCI Express SSD Performance Review
     Sat, May 12 2012 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few years back we attended an Intel IDF event in San Francisco and among other disclosures, behind closed doors, the company was showing off a PCI Express-based SSD with current generation Intel NAND Flash and based on an array of SandForce controllers. As it turns out, that product never saw the light of day and was more of a demonstration and proof of concept vehicle for Intel than anything else. We've heard rumblings of Intel PCI Express SSD devices since then but nothing materialized much until very recently when Intel stepped out with a full-fledged product announcement of their SSD 910 family of Solid State Drives. To be honest, it was out of the blue, though we like surprises. With an MSRP of $1929 for 400GiB of capacity and $3859 for an 800GiB card, even mainstream performance enthusiasts would have a hard time justifying its cost, though at about $4.82 per GB you could see a high-end workstation professional, with large datasets to crunch, bellying-up perhaps...

REVIEW: Cooler Master Sentinel Advance II and Speed-RX @ PureOverclock
     Sat, May 12 2012 | 11:53A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Aesthetics may help sell a mouse, but the comfort, ergonomics, and price are what often make or break the deal for most diehard gamers. Currently retailing for about $60, the Cooler Master Sentinel Advanced II is priced very well, poised to make a push in the mid-range peripheral market. As an added bonus, we`re looking at the new Speed-RX gaming surface as well. Let`s take a closer look at each of these to see if they can run with the big dogs or will be left on the porch."

Razer Naga Hex Expert Gaming Mouse Review
     Sat, May 12 2012 | 11:53A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The very first target group of gaming mice was FPS gamers since due to its nature the mouse offered significantly better performance/speed and accuracy compared to both the keyboard and gamepads/joypads. Because of that and also because almost a decade ago FPS games were flooding the market it took many years before manufacturers started even considering the development of gaming mice for other game types such as RTS and MMO`s. Fortunately today the market is filled with countless gaming mice designed with special features for every gamer type out there from FPS and RTS gamers up to MMO gamers. The Naga Hex by Razer which has been with us for the past week was designed not only to cover the needs of regular FPS gamers but also the needs of the more demanding MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) gamers who require the best of all worlds including speed/accuracy, control and extra buttons."

The HIS Radeon HD 7770 iCooler is a close to reference implementation of the HD 7770. Coming at reference design price and clocks, its biggest innovation is its cooler, which is exceedingly quiet. It is actually the quietest HD 7770 we tested so far."

G.Skill Ripjaws Z DDR3 2133 8GB Quad Kit @ Pro-Clockers
     Sat, May 12 2012 | 9:15A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
And with the addition of the CPU Strap allows us to take the memory bus higher in smaller increments. And this is great with you have some pretty solid memory modules. And today on tap we feel that we do have a set of memory we consider solid. The kit is from G.Skill and is called the Ripjaws Z and is rated at 2133 MHz but it would be silly to not try and take them farther."

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.
