REVIEW: Cooler Master Storm Stryker @ PureOverclock
     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 9:28A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have the opportunity today to take a look at the new Cooler Master CM Storm Stryker Chassis to see how close it comes to that Holy Grail of balancing looks and usefulness. We must say, the unique touches, in both form and functionality, that Cooler Master has added into the Stryker really caught our attention. Cooler Master really put a great deal of thought into this case. From the sturdy carry handle at the top, to the external SSD hot-swap dock, the case attempts to offer a multitude of features. It even has the ability to be used as a workstation that is air cooled, or you can configure it to be a hardcore gaming rig that is completely water cooled."

Patriot Gauntlet Node Wi-Fi Storage Enclosure
     Fri, Sep 14 2012 | 9:01A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are a couple of inconveniences of modern connected living that Patriot Memory is trying to address with a product called the Gauntlet Node. One is the problem of storage; the only computer or mobile device we have--and you know that we have quite a few--that isn’t constantly running out of local storage, is your big desktop system. Whether it’s due to our packrat-like tendencies, our prolific shutterbugging, our library of music and movies, or the need to maintain secure backups of all of it, file storage is a nagging problem. The Gauntlet Node is a wireless hard drive enclosure that offers a possible solution to both problems; it’s a self-contained portable media server that supports bulk storage (hard drives and SSDs) and can stream via WiFi to up to 8 devices simultaneously.

EVGA GTX 660 SC Edition
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The time is at last right for NVIDIA to official launch its GeForce GTX 660 after a few delays. Designed to compete against AMD's Radeon HD 7850, the GTX 660's new 28nm GK106 continues to leverage the SMX (streaming multiprocessor) architecture and GPU Boost technology first seen on the higher-end GTX 680. The EVGA GTX 660 SC Edition we're reviewing today features 960 CUDA cores, a 980MHz "base" GPU clock and a maximum potential GPU Boost clock of 1032MHz. The EVGA offering packs 2GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6GHz with a 192-bit memory interface, which could mean it performs much closer to the HD 7870. Hit our launch review of the GTX 660 to see how the new Kepler-based card places!

Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 review incl. SLI: Kepler
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GeForce GTX 660 appears to be a great card for gaming on Full HD resolution. Until recently you had to spend £239 to be able to do that, and now it's less than £200. We did notice that with the highest settings, the GTX 660 was at times a little more sluggish than the faster GTX 660 Ti. You could scale down the settings somewhat, or spend a little more and get the GeForce GTX 660 Ti or Radeon HD 7950.

Intel's Demos McAfee Social Protection, A Condom For Your Digital Life
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 3:27P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During the Day Two keynote address at the Intel Developer Forum, Renee James, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Intel’s Software & Services Group, talked about software development, security and services in an “age of transparent computing”. Much of the talk was geared towards software developers and the desire to code once and deploy across a variety of hardware platforms, which of course lead to a long discussion on the benefits and virtues HTML 5, which Intel obviously is firmly behind. During the security-centric portion of the keynote, however, Renee brought out a rep from Intel’s McAfee division to show off a beta release of the McAfee Social Protection app, which they called a "condom for your digital life"...

IDF Tech Zone: Ivy Bridge Windows 8 Tablets
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 3:26P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Traditionally at IDF, Intel's Advanced Technology Zone is where all the cool stuff happens. Whether it be public demos setup for hands-on opportunities with next generation Intel technologies or backroom sessions with Intel Advanced Engineering and Marketing teams showing early engineering samples to members of the press, this place is where we get up close and personal with many of the unveilings that Intel rolls out over the course of the conference. Yesterday we spent time with Intel's Performance Engineering and Benchmark teams discussing what encompasses a satisfying user experience on the ultra-mobile platforms that are all the rage in the market today. On display were a number Windows 8-driven tablets powered by Intel...

Avatar S Gaming Mouse Review

Posted by: STAFF
Gaming mice can be expensive, though, and it really sucks to purchase an expensive mouse just to find out it wasn’t as good as you thought. The Avatar S mouse has been out for a while, but still holds strong because it is one of the cheapest gaming-grade mice you can find.

IDF Day 1: Haswell Live Graphics Demo
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 3:26P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel’s Dadi (David) Perlmutter, General Manager Intel Architecture Group and Chief Product Officer, opened up the 2012 Intel Developers Forum by reflecting back on the significance of this day, the eleventh anniversary of the attacks on 9/11. Today, however, also marks the fifteenth anniversary of IDF, so Dadi ultimately moved on to a quick overview of the many advances and innovations that have taken place at Intel since the event began in 1997. Perlmutter showed off a Medfield SoC alongside a Xeon Phi, along with a number of Intel Atom and Core powered Windows 8 tablets and Ultrabooks, but he finished with a couple of live demos showing the company’s upcoming Haswell-based 4th Gen Core Processors in action…
