ASUS GTX 660 Direct CU II TOP Review
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 9:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The boost speed may not seem all that impressive but consider that it would go between the 1220 to 1233MHz range in just about every game with the card under the 110% power envelope. All told that is a +69MHz boost over the already impressive 1137MHz factory boost clock and 135MHz higher than the factory memory clock. Free performance at its finest. By boosting the fan speed to 100% the card never saw the high side of 59 C in my testing. At 64 C the stock cooling performance is good but it gets better as expected with increased fan speed. Now normally with fan speed comes noise, but not so with this implementation of the DCU II design. Much like its cousin the GTX 660Ti DCU II TOP, I was able to close up the chassis and eliminate the noise form the card with the cooling solution for the CPU being the loudest thing in the case."

MSI GTX 660 Twin Frozr 2GB OC @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As you guys may have noticed, today Nvidia introduced their GTX 660 and GTX 650 cards. We put an overclocked reference design to the test. Now its time to take a look at what MSI has to offer. Our last video card review from MSI had an interesting dual fan design that we had never seen before. This time around we are taking a look at the GTX 660 Twin Frozr 2GB OC edition. That may be a lot to say, but if our last experience with an MSI card is any indication this could be an interesting model to keep an eye out for. Lets take a look at what MSI has done different from the base reference design."

EVGA GTX 660 Superclocked 2Gb @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It wasnt that long ago that we had the chance to take a look at the GTX 660 Ti and check out its amazing performance at the $300 price point. Along with the copy of Borderlands 2 that was bundled with it at launch I was impressed with its price. Of course there are still people who cant afford that price point. Because of this, Nvidia continues to fill in its Kepler lineup, today introducing both their GTX 660 and GTX 650. We will take a look at what the launch is all about and then put our EVGA GTX 660 Superclocked 2Gb to the test at both stock and overclocked speeds to show you the performance difference when you pick up an overclocked model like the one provided by EVGA today."

     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 9:00A | 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…

IDF Day 1: Intel's Rise of Natural, Intuitive Computing
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's Dadi Perlmutter took to the stage in the opening keynote of Intel Developer's Forum 2012 to greet an enthusiastic crowd and evangelize the company's vision of what they call the rise of "natural, intuitive computing." On stage with Dadi were a number of Intel-powered devices including a myriad of Windows 8 tablets and new Ultrabooks from various manufacturers. To be honest, Intel didn't disclose a lot of juicy detail on next generation hardware for the first 20 minutes or so of Dadi's presentation but they focused on a few very innovative new usage models, user interfaces, capabilities and features that are now possible as a result of Intel's relentless, continuous advancements in technology and computing architectures

Intel's Demos McAfee Social Protection, A Condom For Your Digital Life
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 9:00A | Tradeshows / Events | 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"...

NVIDIA Performance: Windows 7 vs. Ubuntu Linux 12.10
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 8:11A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a largely shared driver code-base across platforms, the binary graphics drivers offered by AMD and NVIDIA perform at roughly the same speed for OpenGL between Linux and Windows; that`s traditionally been the case and what Phoronix benchmarks in prior years have shown for NVIDIA and AMD. However, the OpenGL performance difference between operating systems is beginning to widen due to compositing window managers and other factors now affecting the results to a greater extent. In this article are benchmarks of the proprietary NVIDIA graphics driver from Microsoft Windows 7 and then development snapshots of Ubuntu 12.10 with Unity and KDE desktops."
