Posted by: STAFF
Curious to see how the performance of the open-source ATI/AMD Linux graphics driver is evolving for aging hardware, a new round of OpenGL benchmarks were carried out on the once-popular ATI Radeon HD 4870 RV770 graphics card. The performance was compared between the Mesa 7.11, 8.0, 9.0, 9.1, and 9.2-devel Git releases from an Ubuntu Linux system to see how the performance has changed for this driver in the past two years."

The FlexCage MB975SP-B is powered by three SATA power connectors and is cooled by an 80mm fan with Icy Dock Smart Cooling technology. This 80mm cooling fan can automatically detect whether a drive is installed inside the FlexCage MB975SP-B and can also shut down by itself when not needed. The FlexCage MB975SP-B`s 80mm fan can easily be removed and replaced with any 80mm fan using a 2-pin or a 3-pin connector.

Caterpillar REEF D5.163.21.127 Watch
     Sun, May 26 2013 | 2:09P | Web News | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s quite normal for people to check out all the usual and well-known brand names when they are out to purchase a watch either to own for themselves or to give as a gift to someone really close. For example some friends of mine always like to buy Casio G-Shock, Timex and Suunto watches because they consider them as the best for extreme sports and scuba diving due to the durable materials used and extra features like depth meters, barometers, GPS etc. I on the other am always on the lookout for new watch models introduced by Casio, Seiko, Citizen, Sector and quite a few other brands that i happen to respect and trust. However in a market where new players emerge every day it`s somewhat important for people like me to keep an open mind and that lesson was taught to us by Caterpillar since it wasn`t only until recently that we had a chance to check out one of the latest watch models added to their collection, the REEF."

i-Mego Walker Junior Noise Cancelling Headphones Review @ TestFreaks
     Sun, May 26 2013 | 12:35P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ive got a nice assortment of headphones and earbuds that Ive collected over the years of reviewing products but it occurs to me Ive never owned or reviewed a set of headphones that feature active noise cancelling. I dont know why I dont have any, its just worked out that, but I finally do and I think I know understand better why people like them so much. Today for review I have the i-Mego Walker Junior Noise Cancelling Headphones that feature, as you might have guessed, active noise cancelling. The Walker Junior headphones actually need a battery to power the noise cancelling feature, something you might not expect a pair of headphones to need surely. The headphones are made for the traveler so they can fold up to a small size making them easily transportable. These arent just for travelers of course, anyone who likes good sound and the ability to keep outside noise out will appreciate the Walker Junior headphones. So read on to learn more about the Walker Junior headphones "

Posted by: STAFF
Looking for an affordable gaming laptop? The Gigabyte P2742G-CF1 might fit the bill. In a category where prices regularly register in the thousands, it`s nice to see a gaming rig that costs less than a used car. It will get you on the gaming grid, but the overall package isn`t the best, even at the affordable price."

OCZ Vertex 450 256GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, May 26 2013 | 8:21A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Knowing that the Vertex 450 was going to be very similar to the Vector series drives, we already had an idea of what we would see on the test bench. We certainly weren`t disappointed with performance that lived up to the storied Vertex name. Specifically, we love seeing the consistent performance without the dips we`ve been so accustomed to seeing with the SandForce drives. The Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller is proving itself to be amongst the best available and frankly SandForce (LSI) needs to step their game soon if they wish to keep pace with what we are seeing from numerous other controllers..."
