Corsair Vengeance M65 Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Mar 15 2013 | 10:19A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The M65 joins the Vengeance M95 and K95 as a part of a refresh of their peripheral line-up for 2013, in most cases concentrating on making small changes for a more well-rounded whole. The headline change made in the design of the M65 is the inclusion of the 8200DPI Avago ADNS-9800 LaserStream Gaming Sensor, substantially upgrading from the previous 5200DPI sensor, although the promotional material also boasts access to the second generation Vengeance Configuration software utility. Remaining at centre stage are the stylish exposed aluminium-chassis design, sniper button and configurable weight system seen on the M60."

Fractal Design Node 605 Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Mar 15 2013 | 9:19A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Under the spotlight today is the Node 605, a HTPC chassis sporting typical Scandinavian styling and allowing compatibility for ATX motherboards. In true Fractal Design fashion, Node 605 is designed with silence as its primary purpose, low-noise fans, a three-speed fan controller and noise damping material should all assist with keeping noise levels to an absolute minimum."

SSD NEWS Mushkin Atlas 480GB SSD Review - Performance Meets Capacity In The Ultra World
     Fri, Mar 15 2013 | 7:05A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our SSD analysis today is another first for us here at TSSDR as we have finally received a Mushkin Atlas 480GB mSATA SSD, the reigning champion in capacity for mSATA drives at this point and time. The interest we have seen in this drive, particularly pertaining to its height, has been somewhat of a shock as several e-mails have been received asking if we thought it would fit in such and such a laptop or ultrabook. To answer two of our e-mails, we installed the Atlas 480GB in our Toshiba Z830, and also, a Samsung Series 9, and had no problem with fit whatsoever. In fact, even we were surprised that there was so little height variation between the two."

Richland Unveiled: AMD Releases the New A10-5750M
     Thu, Mar 14 2013 | 3:23P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD certainly is willing to shake things up a bit, and this refresh is coming hard and fast. AMD expects mobile Richland processors to be available in end user products by next month. Low voltage version for ultra-thins should be available before the end of 1H 2013. AMD has no real choice but to release improved products on an aggressive schedule. Make no mistake, Richland is an improvement over Trinity. Now users just have to judge what is more important to them when it comes to usage and features."

AlienVibes W401 Speaker System @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Mar 14 2013 | 11:55A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being a headphone guy myself, when Wes told me I was being shipped some speakers, my first instinct was either a portable speaker set for laptops or mobile listening, or maybe a small set of speakers for a desktop setup. To my surprise AlienVibes sent out one of their W401 model speakers. This is part of a new larger line of speakers that AlienVibes recently released. The W401 is a full size desk speaker setup with subwoofer. After clearing off some room around my desk its time we take a look and see what these guys are capable of."

Light Virtualization Software Review and Guide: Shadow Defender
     Thu, Mar 14 2013 | 10:28A | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to Light Virtualization very few programs perform as well as Shadow Defender. This lightweight program is easy to use, bloat-free, and light on system resources; yet it possesses the power to fully contain some of the sturdiest of malware within its buffer and fully undo the damage with just a simple reboot."

Benchmarking Ubuntu Linux On The Google Nexus 7
     Thu, Mar 14 2013 | 10:19A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last month I delivered extensive benchmarks of Ubuntu Linux on the Google Nexus 10 using the recently released Ubuntu Touch Developer Preview. In that article were benchmarks from the Samsung Exynos 5 Dual (Cortex-A15) tablet against a range of ARM Cortex and Intel/AMD x86 systems. This article builds upon those earlier Ubuntu Linux x86/ARM results by now adding in the results from Ubuntu on the Google Nexus 7 plus more comparison processors have been tossed into the mix as well. This article offers Ubuntu Linux performance results for a dozen different Intel, AMD, and ARM systems. The ARM SoCs represented are from Texas Instruments OMAP, NVIDIA Tegra, and ARM Exynos families."

Intel Dishes On What Makes H.265 Worth Waiting For @ Techgage
     Thu, Mar 14 2013 | 9:53A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* Following-up on Januarys H.265 announcement, we had a chat with Intel to better understand some of the developments and enhancements made to the upcoming codec, compared to the venerable H.264 (AVC). Although Intel isnt the one conducting the development of H.265 (HEVC), the company has been keeping in good contact with those who are, because with the nature of its business, it pretty-well has to. We might not see on-CPU logic for H.265 anytime soon, but for Intel, the sooner things are sorted out, the better."

Fractal Design Define XL R2 Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, Mar 14 2013 | 9:19A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Many cases claim to offer a combination of style, substance, size and price but Fractal Design`s new Define XL R2 is one of the few to actually deliver on its promises. It uses a full tower form factor that offers plenty of interior space and advanced features wrapped into a neutral but striking exterior design."

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
