[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - PCI Master Read Caching
     Sun, Apr 22 2012 | 8:56A | 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 PCI Master Read Caching setting."

SSD EXCLUSIVE: ADATA XPG SX900 256GB SATA 3 SSD Review - Expanded Capacity and SandForce Driven Speed
     Sun, Apr 22 2012 | 8:46A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back In February, we published an article with respect to LSI SandForce releasing code that would enable the production of `SandForce Driven` SSDs with increased capacity, a whopping 7% additional capacity in fact. In other words, the consumer would see LSI SandForce performance in 64, 128, 256 and 512GB drives vice the standard SF capacities of 60, 120, 240 and 480GB. This was great news but the question of performance was definitely present in countless SSD forum threads. In an attempt to answer a question brought forward in a comment at Anandtech, (as they were kind enough to quote our release) a very colorful conversation ensued with respect to where this space would be found and any performance implications that might result. In the end, we are happy to revisit this topic and our report today is on the ADATA XPG SX900 256GB 6Gbps SSD, this SSD being the first release of a new generation `SandForce Driven` SSD actually marketed in a 256GB capacity. Grab a seat because you are going to be a bit surprised at the performance we think."

Xclio Touch 767 Review - XSReviews
     Sun, Apr 22 2012 | 12:41A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Xclio have one mission in life: Make high quality cooling equipment to the best of their abilities. They have a huge range of cases made for gamers and tech enthusiasts alike, and the Touch 767 is one of the most recent additions to their Full Tower range. The Touch 767 and Touch 787 are Xclio`s latest case design, a far mark away from the design of their almost iconic A380 tower. It`s all set up for water cooling and there`s enough spare fan slots that anybody who can invest in this case is looking at some serious cooling power. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

AMD To Drop Radeon HD 2000/3000/4000 Catalyst Support
     Sat, Apr 21 2012 | 4:12P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In what will certainly be controversial and disappointing to some Radeon Linux desktop users, AMD will soon announce that they will effectively be discontinuing support for several Radeon product families from their proprietary Catalyst driver. After that point, for future Linux distribution updates, the open-source Radeon Linux driver will be your only option for accelerated graphics. This is likely happening with the Windows Catalyst driver too, but at least there they have a better-maintained legacy driver process."

News - HIS HD7750 iCooler 1GB (H775F1GD) Review at Overclockers Online
     Sat, Apr 21 2012 | 11:02A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HIS 7750 iCooler 1GB is not your hardcore gaming GPU and it is not meant to be. What it is, is a silent and good performer for an entry level gamer. With no need for an extra power connection and its silent operation it is an ideal choice for a casual gamer?s upgrade from the typically dreadful onboard video. HIS once again does a number with their iCooler design delivering silent and efficient performance."

Western Digital VelociRaptor 1TB Review - 10K RPM Hits a Larger Capacity
     Sat, Apr 21 2012 | 8:56A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Western Digital has done well to keep the VelociRaptor pedigree alive with this new 1TB model. We saw notable imporvements across the board, as well as some very impressive throughput figures breaking the 200MB/sec mark. While spinning disks have a ways to go before they can compete with solid state, the new VelociRaptor does extremely well and tops all other spinning disks out there, at a cost/GB way cheaper than any SSD!"

Toshiba Excite 10 LE Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sat, Apr 21 2012 | 12:41A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Toshiba Excite 10 LE comes into a crowded tablet market where everyone wants to take a bite out of the Apple iPad. Toshiba went with making this Android 3.0-powered tablet both lightweight and razor-thin, but the design isn`t all that counts. While we liked some aspects of the Excite tablet, it is definitely lacking in several ways."

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.
