Intel Core i7-3770 Ivy Bridge CPU
     Tue, May 01 2012 | 2:26P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The update to Sandy Bridge brings 22nm fabrication technology, a souped up integrated graphics chip, and a host of minor improvements to LGA1155. Best of all, Ivy Bridge is backwards compatible with series 6 motherboards and doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

Ascend GPU & CPU Performance Test
     Tue, May 01 2012 | 2:25P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most of our game performance reviews feature triple-A blockbusters, but we're changing pace for this write-up as we examine Tribes: Ascend, a free-to-play shooter released by Hi-Rez Studios on April 12. The Tribes franchise has deep roots in multiplayer shooter history. Considered a successor to Tribes 2, Tribes: Ascend embraces its heritage by incorporating the same fast-paced combat, tons of maps, weapons, vehicles and unique traversal mechanics. The game is built on a modified Unreal Engine 3 and only supports DirectX 9 graphics, but the recommended specs are relatively high, calling for a GeForce GTX 560 or Radeon HD 6950 with a quad-core processor. Considering those requirements, we're hoping the game gives our test hardware a nice workout.

Posted by: STAFF

Carbon Fiber Design Rubberized Hard Case Cover for HTC Titan Review @ Review the Tech
     Tue, May 01 2012 | 11:53A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When is premium not premium? I like to check out Amazon for deals and many times you can find decent ones, especially on phone accessories, but there are times when it?s just not worth it and you should just buy a name brand. I got an HTC Titan and needed a case so I grabbed a cheap one, yeah that was a mistake. I like the look of carbon fiber so I found a hard plastic case that had a carbon fiber design and ordered it. It?s not what I expected at all and it doesn?t look like the picture the seller has of the case on Amazon. So read on to check it out, but don?t buy it please?"

?The Toshiba Satellite L655-S5161 is an entry-level laptop with an Intel Core i3 CPU, 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive. It provides good performance, but doesn`t provide a lot of the more advanced features that you`d find on a slightly more expensive laptop.?"

SSD NEWS: Intel 330 Series 120GB SATA 3 SSD Review - LSI SandForce Performance With Unbeatable Value
     Tue, May 01 2012 | 10:23A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It wasn`t so long ago that we broke news of the Intel/SandForce partnership and everyone told us we were nuts. Once again, we are here to publish another SSD first and Intel seems to be front and center once again. Our SSD analysis today will examine the Intel Series 330 SATA 3 SSD, the value priced little brother of the Intel 520, and the similarity between the two is rather odd. In fact, one could almost consider them twins as they contain exactly the same SandForce processor and model of memory."

The Open-Source Linux Graphics Card Showdown
     Tue, May 01 2012 | 10:23A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this week I provided Intel Core i7 3770K Linux benchmarks for the Ivy Bridge launch-day followed by initial Ivy Bridge Linux HD 4000 graphics benchmarks compared to the Intel HD 2000/3000 Sandy Bridge graphics under Linux and to AMD Fusion on Catalyst and Gallium3D. In this article are more benchmarks of the HD 4000 Ivy Bridge graphics under Linux with Intel`s open-source driver, but in this article it is a much larger comparison. This is a full showdown of the Core i7 3770K graphics compared to several discrete NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon graphics cards when they`re using their respective open-source Gallium3D drivers. What graphics hardware is best if you want to use an open-source GPU driver? Find out now."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
