Genius SP-U115 Colorful USB Powered Stereo Speakers Review @ ModSynergy.com
     Sat, Jun 08 2013 | 11:35A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I was very curious to what one could buy for $15.74USD and if something so inexpensive could enhance the audio experience in various scenarios such as the PowerPoint multimedia presentation, or even simply replacing the tiny speaker on your notebook, netbook, desktop as you watch YouTube videos. Genius is a name you might remember. Not too long ago I reviewed their portable Bluetooth stereo speaker and was pleasantly surprised to how well it sounded for something quite compact. It`ll be quite interesting to see if the new Genius SP- U115 Colorful USB powered stereo speakers with 1.5W of RMS (continuous) power can continue that element of surprise. This specific model is offered in four different color combinations which include black, blue with black, red with black, and lime green and white accents."

Azza Silentium 920B PC Case @ DreamWare Computers

Posted by: STAFF
The Silentium 920B and 920W (B for black and W for white), is minimalistic in design with a sleek appearance on the outside. It has 2 USB ports, a 3.0 & 2.0 as well as microphone & headphone jacks. On the inside it is equipped with sound dampening system to make it whisper quiet. This mid-tower case supports micro ATX and ATX motherboards. AZZA makes all of its gaming cases out of Tamahagane. Tamahagane is the original steel used by Japanese sword smiths. Tamahagane takes 5 days to make. One day to build the walls (clay and sand), 3 day?s to smelt and 1 day to remove the iron out of the tatara. In this 5 days process, they need about 13 tons of charcoal and 8 tons of satetsu (black sand) to produce 2 tons of iron and steel. "

MSI GTX 650Ti BOOST OC Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Jun 07 2013 | 11:46A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NVIDIA GTX650Ti BOOST faced heavy competition with AMD`s cost effective HD7850 so to even up the score, we will be testing MSI`s overclocked GTX650TI BOOST against a similarly overclocked HD7850 and budget HD7970 in today`s review to find out which card is not only the fastest, not only which offers best bang-per-buck but also, and perhaps most importantly, which offers the smoothest gameplay of all three entry level gaming graphics cards currently available."

EVGA GTX 770 SC 2GB with ACX Cooler Video Card Review @ HiTech Legion
     Fri, Jun 07 2013 | 11:35A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The EVGA GTX 770 Superclocked 2GB video card is equipped with EVGA`s revolutionary new ACX cooler designed to provide quieter and superior performance. The EVGA GTX 770 SC`s ACX cooler maintains a dual-slot design for efficient thermal properties in SLI mode. The EVGA ACX cooler is equipped with 40% higher fin volume and separated cooling subsystems so the double ball bearing fans can efficiently dissipate heat emitted by the GTX 770`s GK104 core and components while under load. The EVGA GTX 770 with ACX cooler is super clocked with a base of 1111MHz and boost of 1163MHz compared to the reference 1046 MHz base clock and the 1085 MHz boost clock. As with all EVGA video cards, the GeForce GTX 770 2GB Superclocked with ACX cooler video card comes packed with EVGA Precision X and OC Scanner software for further overclocking convenience.

[Tech ARP] The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 Tech Report
     Fri, Jun 07 2013 | 10:53A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has the full complement of 1536 CUDA cores with a 40 MHz (4%) faster base clock and a 27 MHz (2.6%) faster boost clock. The only significant feature that the GeForce GTX 770 brings to the table is its 7 Gbps GDDR5 graphics memory - the fastest memory clock speed to date! This allows it to deliver a peak memory bandwidth of just over 224 GB/s, or 16.6% more than that of the GeForce GTX 680! Like the GeForce GTX TITAN and the *GeForce GTX 780 , it will also support the newer GPU Boost 2.0, which gives you more advanced controls for overclocking, fan control, and hardware monitoring."

     Fri, Jun 07 2013 | 10:31A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Haswell is here, Haswell is here, Haswell is here!!! After talking for months about the Linux kernel and driver development for Intel`s Ivy Bridge successor, the heatsink can be lifted today on talking about Intel`s Haswell processor.
