"Mobile devices are just as at risk. The phone creator gives you reduced permissions to attempt to prevent you from installing untrusted code. If you have ever heard of someone jailbreaking their phones then you know that there exists a process to remove admin privileges from the phone creator and give them to yourself. Jailbreakme.com allows you to seize permissions from your iOS device just by browsing a website -- imagine a different website which gave the permissions to someone other than you?"

Ivy Bridge Overclocking Guide - Air Water LN2 @ ocaholic
     Tue, May 08 2012 | 1:21P | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ivy Bridge overclocking is almost identical to Sandy Bridge overclocking in that it is basically a CPU which is meant to be overclocked through the multiplier and not the base clock (BCLK). Sandy Bridge overclocking brought a whole new level of simplicity to the overclocking realm, a user only needed to change a few voltages, and change some ratios and they were easily granted a huge performance increase."

MSI HD7870 Twin Frozr III OC Review @ Vortez
     Tue, May 08 2012 | 1:21P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Twin Frozr cooler has been around for a while now in one form or another. It has proved very popular amongst enthusiasts due to the robust aluminium design and because it is one of the quietest on the market today. Most importantly, the Twin Frozr cooler is one of if not the most efficient at dissipating heat from the graphics core. This in turn means that higher overclocks can be attained through voltage and clockspeeds unattainable with lesser cooling designs. We should know, we use one in our motherboard test rig! MSI then, it seem have created something every overclock dreams of. A cooling design is only as good as the hardware it is meant to cool though and on this occasion, MSI have chosen the AMD HD7870, a GPU that is not exactly blisteringly hot to begin with."

MSI Z77A-GD65 motherboard (with 3770K Ivy Bridge) review
     Tue, May 08 2012 | 1:21P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the MSI Z77A-GD65 motherboard. The MSI Z77A-GD65 is intended for Intel`s 22nm Ivy Bridge processors on Socket LGA1155, and they tend to overclock rather well as we`ll show you. On (really good) air cooling you can reach 4.7 to 5 GHz with a motherboard as used today. Have a peek at what was just released, this is the MSI Z77A-GD65 `Ivy Bridge` motherboard.

CM Storm Trigger Gaming Keyboard Review
     Tue, May 08 2012 | 12:03P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After taking a look at Cooler Master's QuickFire Pro keyboard last month, we walked away knowing that the company knows how to make a quality mechanical offering. Will the Trigger reaffirm that belief? It adds macro support, a palmrest and expands the backlighting to the entire keyboard - so it has a good chance.

Asus has revamped its entry level Transformer tablet
     Tue, May 08 2012 | 12:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink

VisionTek 7850 and 7870
     Tue, May 08 2012 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Until Nvidia's mid-range Kepler cards hit the market, it looks as though AMD is racking up the marketshare in this consumer segment, as cards in this $250 - $350 price range generally hit a sweet spot for gamers; frankly, it can be a lucrative market. VisionTek is an AMD partner that typically produces reference designs, but these new cards have been tweaked, looking to produce better temperatures in a sleekly-styled package. Performance is one thing, but we're suckers for great value as well, so let's take a closer look at these graphics cards and find out if they can meet our expectations.”

Current SSD Projects On The Go

Posted by: STAFF
Every now and then it’s nice to let out a bit of a heads up what we are working on behind the scenes at The SSD Review. It just might give a bit of an indication as to what could be published as front page coverage soon enough. Take a look here to see a great disassembled Intel 910 PCIe SSD shot, one of the OWC Accelsior PCIe SSD and a great shot of 32 Intel 520 SSDs and 5 Intel RAID Cards. The best is yet to come!

Exclusive First Look Of The Leetgion ElDruin Gaming Mouse
     Tue, May 08 2012 | 10:43A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Leetgion surprised pretty much everybody with their latest StarCraft II optimized Hellion gaming mouse but they also have another gaming mouse in the works optimized for the much awaited Diablo III game called El`Druin. So far only 3D Rendered pictures have been circulating the world but as always we got the first exclusive look at their product which features an even more impressive and at the same time radical design than the Hellion. Design aside the El`Druin features the same 5000DPI AVAGO 9500 Laser Sensor as the Hellion, Omron micro-switches and much more (specifications listed above). So take a look and tell us what you think."

CPU shoot-out: Intel Atom D2700 vs. AMD E-450
     Tue, May 08 2012 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel released a new generation of Atom processors based on 32nm transistors. The Atom D2500 and D2700 are intended for cheap mini- or all-in-one PCs. Atom processors with model numbers starting with N are used in netbooks, a product category that has been losing market share since the arrival of tablets. A logical use for Atom processors will of course be the upcoming Windows 8 x86 tablets. Thus far the Atom processors have not impressed very much. The energy efficiency sacrificed too much performance, and compared to the ARM competitors they weren't even that efficient. AMD's Fusion counterpart with its powerful integrated GPU was more interesting for light-weight computers. Does the new generation Atoms change our perception? Hardware.Info examined the new top model Atom, the D2700.
