MSI Z77IA-E53 miniITX Preview @ Ocaholic
     Mon, Apr 15 2013 | 6:39A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Meanwhile also MSI has a Z77 based miniITX motherboard on the market. With price tag of only 98 Euros this board is surprisingly cheap. To us this sound quite interesting and we`re curious to find out whether this is a compelling offer or a board lacking features."

Sony VAIO T14 Ultrabook Review - Out With Express Cache In With DataPlex For SandForce Driven Speed
     Sun, Apr 14 2013 | 10:07P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sony`s new VIAO touchscreen T14 arrived last week, complete with hybrid hard drive and Windows 8. Frequent readers of TSSDR understand my opinion of both, an opinion that was initially hard to contain with their teaming up in what appears to be an attractive ultra design. Swapping out the hard drive for an SSD was a given. Stepping outside the box, we believed the analysis and replacement of ExpressCache with NVELO Dataplex might be worth the effort and worthy of report. Could it be done? To date, we haven`t seen Samsung`s NVELO Dataplex in any ultra book or laptop design, yet it is unquestionably the highest performing caching software that we know of. Is there another that could actually see a hybrid ultra book design reach exceed data speeds above 500MB/s by twinning the performance of a caching SSD onto that of a hard drive?"

Crucial Ballistix 240-pin DIMM DDR3 PC3-12800 memory module @ Rbmods
     Sun, Apr 14 2013 | 5:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ever had a problem installing your brand new CPU cooler due to high memory heatsinks blocking the space around the socket? There is a solution for this issue! Crucial has released a low profile ram kit. The sticks are about half the height of normal ram sticks, but I have one question; how do they perform?"

Cougar PowerX 550W Power Supply Unit Review
     Sun, Apr 14 2013 | 3:50P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With many people already having purchased one of the latest GTX Titan graphics cards by NVIDIA (it was sold out after all) it really makes sense for us to focus on reviews about powerful and quite expensive 80Plus Platinum certified power supply units that can successfully feed that monster of a card with sufficient, clean and stable power (and we have). However since most people out there seem opt for either an GTX 660 or for one of the Radeon HD 7850 cards instead we also need to cater to their needs and so today we decided to bring you a review of one of the latest PSUs to hit the market, the reasonably priced 550W 80Plus Bronze Certified PowerX by Cougar."

Posted by: STAFF
In the world of computing today, there are many companies and brands which provide a multitude of products. Ranging from the budget conscientious to the high end enthusiast, there is massive selection of products available on the market. Whether you`re a general computer user or a professional gamer, computer screens and other digital devices can cause a condition called Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) which causes a variety of symptoms such as headaches, neck pain, eye strain and difficulty in refocusing your eyes. With many brands providing healthier solutions to use your PC including products such as padded mouse mats and keyboard wrist rests to combat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, one company in particular has dedicated themselves to reducing the effects of CVS on our eyes."

Sapphire HD 7790 Dual-X OC Video Card Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Apr 14 2013 | 9:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sapphire Radeon HD 7790 OC edition is one of the latest GPUs based on AMD`s 28nm Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture and uses the Bonaire GPU. The Sapphire 7790 features their custom dual-x cooling solution. The custom cooler is designed with two fans and multiple heat pipes to keep the card cool during intensive use. The GPU clock speed is factory overclocked to 1075 MHz from the standard 1GHz reference speeds. The 7790 also features AMD`s newest version of their PowerTune technology, which is designed to be more power efficient and allow for higher clocks.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650Ti Boost Review
     Sun, Apr 14 2013 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Using a Kepler core at its heart, the GTX 650Ti Boost edition overclocks much like any of the enthusiast cards such as the GTX 680 and GTX Titan. For this exercise I will be using EVGA Precision to overclock the GTX 650Ti Boost. Knowing where these cores normally start to show signs of instability, I moved the sliders up to a point where I was running a core boost clock of almost 1200MHz as my starting point. The maximum fan speed I could set was 74%, yet this kept the core at a modest 56 C under load. A higher fan speed may have dropped the load temperatures but most certainly increased the noise signature from the card. The voltage used in Precision was set to 1150mv after failing to complete the stability testing phase of the overclock testing. Final settings were 1215MHz under boost on the core with a 1603MHz clock on the GDDR5 memory."

Can Console Gaming Save AMD From Collapse? @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Apr 13 2013 | 12:49P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One year ago Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (NYSE:AMD) company stock was publically trading for $8.20 per share, and since then value has sunk to as low as $1.86 per share, performing far worse than other stocks within the same industry. While the numbers don`t lie, they don`t always tell the entire story. Not so long ago I wrote an article that asserted how game developers would see new demand for their products as the platform technology improved. The obvious winners were those invested in game console production and development, but it was too early to point the finger at many specific names. Sony`s PlayStation and Microsoft`s XBOX platform were expected to thrive well into the next generation, but hardware component suppliers were still an unknown... until now. Unofficially announced, both Sony and Microsoft have selected Advanced Micro Devices as the source of their next-generation console processor needs. How much will this help to save a failing company?"
