A Futurelooks News Flash - AMD Performance Edition 1600 MHz DDR3 2x4GB Memory Kit Review
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 5:20P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
a post to your own news section would totally be appreciated. If we`re sending our news to the wrong place, we apologize. Just send us a message with the correct address to the address below. Don`t forget that,AMD Performance Edition 1600 MHz DDR3 2x4GB Memory Kit Review* * * It is always a good idea for a company to grow into other markets as it expands. As they say Its simple: Overspecialize, and you breed in weakness. Its slow death. I will not argue the validity of this statement, but it seems to be true at least for large corporations and AMD is no different. The most recent expansion in the public market for AMD is to offer memory kits bearing their brand. Today I will be testing the AMD Performance Edition 8 GB memory kit to see if memory is going to be the third market AMD plans to fight over. *"

Don`t forget that,Lucids Virtu MVP Has No Love for SLI and CrossFire Users on Intel Z77 Platform* * * Over the last couple weeks, Ive been neck deep in heavy Intel Z77 motherboard testing. Ive been scrutinizing every last feature, and weighing each boards performance potential. One of the Intel Z77 platform features Ive been testing is Lucids Virtu MVP which could be the best Intel processor supporting feature in the last five years because it allows you to enhance not only your GPUs performance, but it also makes your games look better to0. But theres a small issue: It disables Intels own QuickSync feature in certain circumstances. *"

Corsair`s aptly named Accelerator series is supposed breathe new life into older HDD-based systems by caching your most-used information so it can be quickly accessed.

ASUS P8Z77-V LGA1155 Motherboard Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 4:09P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS P8Z77-V sits dead in the middle of the new V series, sporting top quality components across the board and a plethora of truly useful features.

     Thu, May 17 2012 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you thought the most exciting improvements with OCZ`s new Vertex 4 firmware were reserved for the 256GB and 512GB models, you`d be wrong. As it happens, the most interesting and substantial performance improvements are to be had with the 128GB Vertex 4. We happen to have a 128GB Vertex 4 on our bench in order to find out what makes it and the new Vertex 4 1.4 Release Candidate firmware worth a look."

SteelSeries Diablo III Headset Review
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 4:00P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are literally counting the hours before Diablo III the much anticipated (for almost 11 years) RPG game title by Blizzard gets officially released (some may have it already) and so since i am quite certain that most of you are looking forward to it this title should easily break sales records around the world just like StarCraft 2 did just over year ago (perhaps even more). So having already reviewed the very good Diablo III mouse by SteelSeries i thought it would be appropriate to also review their Diablo III headset just hours before the official launch of the game."

Storage Perspective: A Google Drive Preview
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 4:00P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So, is it worth checking out? Yes. Is it worth switching to? For paid-storage users: maybe, depending on what your current storage provider is currently offering you. But for free storage users: yes, but I would advise thinking of it less in terms of switching and more in terms of adding Google Drive to your backup regime, especially if you are only dealing with amounts of storage that falls within free tiers."

The GTX 670 and the Case of the Missing (and Returning) 4-Way SLI Support
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our launch review of the GeForce GTX 670 2GB graphics card this week, we had initially mentioned that these $399 graphics cards would support SLI, 3-Way SLI and even 4-Way SLI configurations thanks to the pair of SLI connections on the PCB. We received an update from NVIDIA later on that day that in fact it would NOT support 4-Way SLI."

Virtu Universal MVP Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 3:51P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Virtu Universal MVP is a software-based technology that is available on most motherboards based on the latest Intel Z77 chipset. It allows you to combine the CPU integrated graphics processor to your regular video card, increasing gaming performance. This is similar to what occurs with the NVIDIA`s Hybrid SLI and AMD`s ATI Hybrid technologies, with the notable difference of not being limited to GPUs or CPUs of a specific manufacturer. In this review we will see if this technology really works and how much performance you will gain by using it. We will also take a look at the performance of the integrated graphics processor available on the Core i7-3770K (Ivy Bridge) CPU."

Zotac GeForce GTX680 2GB Review
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Zotac GeForce GTX680 2GB and the newer 4GB version, are the only NVIDIA-based models Zotac currently make in the 600 series. We have the 2GB version for review and we were very impressed with the results. The Zotac GeForce GTX680 2GB is definitely a card for enthusiast gamers. The GTX680 is on par with the ATI HD 7970, but are a much cheaper price...

Gigabyte GTX670 OC Video Card Review
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte GTX670 OC Video Card Review The Gigabyte GV-N670OC-GD2 has many things going for it starting with the new GTX 670 GPU. This may be a cut down version of the GTX 680 but it has plenty of power for most games and some to spare in others. Most of that power comes from the impressive decent factory overclock which was due, in part, to the custom designed PCB and Windforce thermal solution.

Patriot Viper Xtreme Division 4 DDR3-1866 16GB Quad Channel Memory Kit Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, May 17 2012 | 11:01A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A little over a year ago we took a look at our first Patriot Viper Xtreme memory kit in their 6GB DDR3-2000 kit. These kits are just awesome! Each module in the kit features 6 grams of copper at its core paired with an extruded aircraft-grade aluminum outer shield, which not only is going to keep the modules cool, but makes for a pretty cool look. Today we are taking a look a the Division 4 kit of the Viper Xtreme Series, which is designed specifically for Intel?s X79 platform and 2nd generation Core? processors. We are checking out the PXQ316G1866ELQK kit, which is a 16GB kit running at 1866MHz with timings of 9-11-9-27 at 1.65V. Read on as we take these for a ride."

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
