     Mon, May 13 2013 | 10:28A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sony VAIO Fit 14 is a mainstream laptop that comes as close as you can without being an official ultrabook, but it went over specification. It`s nice to look at and somewhat powerful, but a couple of issues keeping it from scoring higher."

Posted by: STAFF
Not everyone has the option to spend hundreds of pounds on a power supply for their system but thankfully Corsair have the entry level CX series to cater for budget conscious system builders and enthusiasts.

News: AMD sheds light on Kaveris uniform memory architecture
     Mon, May 13 2013 | 4:23A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the Fusion Developer Summit last June, AMD CTO Mark Papermaster teased Kaveri, AMD`s next-generation APU due later this year. Among other things, Papermaster revealed that Kaveri will be based on the Steamroller architecture and that it will be the first AMD APU with fully shared memory. Last week, AMD shed some more light on Kaveri`s uniform memory architecture, which now has a snazzy marketing name: heterogeneous uniform memory access, or hUMA for short."

Toshiba MK3001GRRB 300GB SAS 6Gb/s HDD
     Sun, May 12 2013 | 12:11P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are reading these lines then you should be well aware that the two main reasons behind the increasing demands in storage capacity all of us have are the continuous speed upgrades we have been enjoying in internet bandwidth during the past 10 years in most places around the globe combined of course with the wide availability in Full HD/HD media content. Because of that most people (namely casual users, gamers and even some overclockers) naturally put the usual capacity/price ratio above performance and especially nowadays with the current state of the economy i can`t really blame them for doing that (besides mostly for backup purposes you don`t really need the best possible performance factor). However there are many enterprise users, professionals and enthusiasts out there who always place performance and data integrity above the usual capacity/price ratio and this is where 2.5 SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) drives like the latest Toshiba MK3001GRRB come in."

Seagate Desktop HDD.15 4TB vs WD Black 4TB Hard Drive Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, May 12 2013 | 10:28A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The WD Black and Seagate Desktop HDD.15 are both 4TB drives with 64MB of cache, but they differ internally on how they reach this large capacity. WD uses five 800GB platters and Seagate uses four 1TB platters to reach 4TB. Seagate informed us that the new 1TB per platter design significantly increases the hard drives performance over the competition. It also consumes 35 percent less power than comparable drives on the market with 4TB capacities, so this will be an interesting matchup..."
