GIGABYTE HD7850 OC Review @ Vortez
     Sat, May 05 2012 | 4:19P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve had a few WindForce cooling designs through our doors at Vortez and each one has impressed both with their attractive design but more importantly their performance. They ran very quietly and they kept the graphics card cool, even when overclocked. Today, we will be looking to see how it performs on an already cool running card, the HD7850. Is such a cooler needed on a cool running card you might ask. Well GIGABYTE have seen fit to overclock the GPU core on the HD7850 from 860MHz to 975Mhz which will add to the heat but will it be enough to justify the cooling ability of the WindForce design?"

Posted by: STAFF
I love toys and being a dad means I can get and play with all kinds of toys. My favorite is pretty much anything remote control, but helicopters hold a special place for me. Today for review I?ve got the Griffin Helo TC Assault which is a remote control helicopter that can be controller with either iOS or Android devices. The Helo TC Assault is special though in that it has missiles that actually fire, yes you can have a lot of fun with this little gadget. "

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - Digital Locked Loop (DLL)
     Sat, May 05 2012 | 3:29P | 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 Digital Locked Loop (DLL) setting."

VooMote Zapper Universal Remote Review @ TestFreaks
     Sat, May 05 2012 | 3:29P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you?re like me and pretty much everyone else these days then you?ve got several remotes for all of your entertainment devices. I?m also sure that you too have lost a remote or two in your time as I?ve done. Having all of these remotes can be complicated and honestly a bit annoying so the thing to do is go buy another remote, a universal one, but that?s just adding another remote to your collection. many people have an iDevice like an iPad, iPod or iPhone these days so instead of buying another remote you can buy what I have today for review which is a small little attachment called the VooMote Zapper. This little gadget about the size of a quarter and just plug right into your iDevice and turns it into a full fledged universal remote. Does it work? Yes. Is it perfect? Almost. "

QNAP TS-879 Pro (10GbE Performance)
     Sat, May 05 2012 | 12:03P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Without question the QNAP TS-879 Pro is a beast when configured with the right hardware. Loaded with hard drives, in our case Western Digital RE4 Enterprise drives, the TS-879 Pro is as fast as any NAS device we have tested before it using a Gigabit Ethernet connection. However drop in a 10GbE network card and the TS-879 Pro is a totally different animal.

HTC One X AT&T Smartphone Review
     Sat, May 05 2012 | 12:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HTC One X generated quite a buzz when the smartphone was first announced at Mobile World Congress earlier this year. The initial announcement featured information and specifications for two versions of the phone, an international model built around NVIDIA’s quad-plus-one core Tegra 3 SoC (system on a chip) and a U.S. model powered by a dual-core Qualcomm chip. The lack of a quad-core model in the U.S. left some observers feeling a bit flat, but by going with the Qualcomm MSM 8960 HTC was able to support LTE in the U.S. Additionally; the MSM 8960 isn’t like other dual-core SoCs currently on the market. The MSM 8960 features Qualcomm's Krait microarchitecture, with an Adreno 225 graphics engine, and the chip is built using a 28nm manufacturing process. The sum-total of these advancements is a SoC that offers better per-core CPU performance than most other SoCs, with strong graphics performance, and in a lower power-envelope. As you’ll see, the performance of the device is very good...

Noontec Zoro Headset Review @ XtremeComputing
     Sat, May 05 2012 | 12:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"On first inspection I notice that they look undeniably like the Dr. Dre’s Monster Beats brand which they do but can they match the sound quality, but having said that lets hope they beat (excuse the pun) the build quality as my own set of beats lasted 2 months before the headband just cracked and broke…"

[DreamWare Computers] SilverStone FP37 Front Bay Card Reader
     Sat, May 05 2012 | 11:21A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For many years I`ve been using SilverStone`s FP35 card reader, but am often left complaining when I have a micro card to read and it can`t support it. Due to the age of the FP35, micro storage cards were not nearly as common on the market at the time of it`s release and SilverStone opted to exclude a micro card slot in favor of packing even more features on the front of this nifty device. Now, several years later, a lot of the extra features found on the FP35 have been replaced by newer, better and faster technologies. The FP37 is the newer iteration of the FP35. The FP37 has nothing but card slots and a single USB 3.0 port on the front of it - which, as we`ll see later, is actually an efficient replacement for the trio of ports it`s replacing from the FP35. Without any further adieu, let`s check out the FP37!"
