Intel Core i3-3220 v. Intel Core i3-3225 Review @MissingRemote
     Mon, Jan 07 2013 | 11:46A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As interesting as the third generation of Intel Core integrated processor graphics (IPG) were when they arrived in April, as home theater PC (HTPC) enthusiasts it was disappointing that the more applicable two core/four thread models were not available. We gleaned what we could about the minor processing improvements and major changes to the graphic processing unit (GPU) from the Core i7-3770K / Core i7-3770S, but as those were overkill for this space there are still many unanswered questions around how the six execution unit (EU) HD 2500 compares to sixteen EU HD 4000 and, perhaps more importantly, how 22nm Ivy Bridge (IVB) CPUs compare against the previous generation of Sandy Bridge (SNB) IPG with similar power requirements. To achieve these goals two 3.3 GHz, 55W Core i3s were tested; with only the GPU separating them at least on the specifications sheet lets dig into the Intel Core i3-3220 and Intel Core i3-3225 and find out which is the better option for your next HTPC. *"

Cyberpower Zeus M2 Intel Ultrabook Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Jan 07 2013 | 9:48A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The CyberPower Zeus M2 offers a 14.1 high gloss screen that has a maximum resolution of 1366x768. This is powered by the Intel `Ivy Bridge` i5-3317U processor`s HD 4000 graphics. While the Intel HD 4000 graphics may not be the meanest graphics around, they are fully capable of some great DirectX 11 graphics and will offer reasonable performance for some light gaming. Speed is certainly one of most common things that people will look for in an Ultrabook, by the specifications the Cyberpower Zeus M2 will have plenty. In addition to the Intel Core i5-3317U quad core processor, there is 16GB of DDR3 RAM installed into the machine! Not just any RAM, Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz RAM, some of the best stuff out there today..."

SSD News: Acer Unexpectedly Introduces New SSD Form Factor In S7 Ultrabook
     Mon, Jan 07 2013 | 9:47A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I live for days like today. In less than 24 hours, I will be sitting back on some white sand Honduran beach in front of my villa yet my excitement is still right here in the SSD storage world; and so it should be. As it stands, we just ripped open a brand new Acer S7 because we had to see the very first ultra in the world with two SATA 3 mSATA connections. After all, this has to be as the S7 can easily spit out performance of just under 1GB/s.doesn`t it?"

Glacialtech Igloo Pad Series R15 Laptop Cooling Pad Review
     Mon, Jan 07 2013 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

The focus of this review is a laptop cooling pad from Glacialtech called the Igloo Pad Series R15. Like most notebook cooling stands, the device consists of an elevated, slightly angled platform with a large vented top surface and embedded fan that gently directs a constant steam of cool air at the base of the notebook. The fan draws its power from a USB 2.0 port and doesn't produce any objectionable noise that we were able to detect while working at a desk with it.

Posted by: STAFF
PowerColor has released a new graphics card based on the new AMD "Tahiti" 7870 LE core. We will investigate whether it is a worthy Limited Edition or simply a Lame Edition by comparing it to a Radeon HD 7870 GHz edition and a GTX 660 Ti with comparisons also to an HD 7950. Will this card be a deal, or a dud? You may be surprised.

Tablet: A Wish List For Better Devices
     Mon, Jan 07 2013 | 9:01A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As 2013 rings in, we all get a chance to look back, reflect and take inventory on where were are. Here at HotHardware, it also gives us a chance to think about our wish list for the year ahead, and how we hope our favorite gadgets and platforms evolve. Evolution is a natural part of growth in consumer electronics, and with companies like Microsoft, Amazon, Google and Apple gaining more and more brand recognition across mainstream devices and markets, the stakes have never been higher. In turn, there has never been a better time for these companies to push the envelope in an effort to stay one step ahead and more than just "current," when it comes to cutting-edge technology and features. Below, you'll find our top wishes for some of our favorite tablet and smartphone devices as well as their respective platforms.

Western Digital Black 4TB
     Mon, Jan 07 2013 | 9:00A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Even at $400 the Western Digital WD Black 4TB comes at a cost of just 10c per gigabyte, whereas the Samsung SSD 840 Pro 512GB costs $1.17 per gigabyte, making it almost 12x more expensive. Therefore when it comes to capacity hard drives still have a significant advantage over SSDs and the recent arrival of 4TB models such as the WD Black only solidifies this.

News - Samsung UN55ES8000 55 inch LED HDTV Review @ Overclockers Online
     Sun, Jan 06 2013 | 9:42P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The UN55ES8000 is definitely a stunning TV when you see it in any living room. The new stand matches the almost invisible bezel making the TV a work of art even when not powered up. With a price point of under $2500, it is actually priced almost five hundred less than the Panasonic and a full grand less than Sonys on Futureshop. This may seem shocking for a TV of such caliber and high caliber it is"

"Mushkin has quietly held a price lead throughout 2012 on the 480 / 512GB capacity size. The Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 480GB isn't always the absolute lowest priced SSD in this size, but it's the lowest priced SSD with synchronous / toggle mode flash."

Since their 2011 acquisition of SSD controller manufacturer Indilinx, OCZ has come to market with a variety of new drives over the last year that are all based on the latest Indilinx controller. One of the drive lineups that`s seen some new models was the mid-end Agility series, with the release of the Indilinx Infused powered Agility 4.

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - DRAM Data Integrity Mode
     Sun, Jan 06 2013 | 3:09P | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the *DRAM Data Integrity Mode* setting."

BlueAnt Wireless is well known for their Bluetooth-connected headsets, such as the high-quality BlueAnt Q2 and the durable BlueAnt T1 series.

In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the BlueAnt Commute under several conditions, comparing the features and benefits over other handsfree options."

Small Form Factor (SFX) PSU review: power supplies
     Sun, Jan 06 2013 | 12:02P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
your Mini-ITX system won't contain a dedicated graphics card, then all you need is a 300W power supply. Out of the FSP and Seasonic PSUs, the latter is our favourite because it's more silent. In terms of efficiency they're both about the same. If you intend to use a separate graphics card, you should go for a 450W model. The non-Gold version of Silverstone is more affordable, more silent, and only slightly less efficient, and that's our choice for that category.
