Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 3GB Vapor-X Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Oct 26 2012 | 3:53P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sapphire HD 7970 Vapor-X 3GB video card is the fastest card offered by Sapphire and it shows just how much performance you can get from AMD`s top of the line GPU. The card is impressive, but it better be for $449.99 shipped after rebate. For this kind of money it better perform exceptionally well and for the most part the Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 Vapor-X did just that. After looking at all the performance tests that we completed the Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 Vapor-X was significantly faster than the Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 Vapor-X, but was basically even with the factory overclocked NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 video card that we compared it against..."

Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB Vapor-X Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Oct 26 2012 | 1:51P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sapphire HD 7950 Vapor-X 3GB video card is a custom card that was designed to appeal to gamers. The performance on this card is stellar and we found it to be more than enough to run game titles at 1920x1080 with all the image quality settings cranked up. This is the most common resolution for gamers today and this card will easily handle all those pixels and keep you gaming smoothly..."

Posted by: STAFF
Microsoft`s Windows 8 is a bold innovation, melding the worlds of tablets and PCs. Its excellent touch input, an app store, and better performance are compelling, but the changes will be too drastic for some and as a completely new product, a few rough edges remain."

Plantronics GameCom 780 7.1 Surround Sound Headset Review
     Fri, Oct 26 2012 | 12:42P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you`re an avid gamer just like me then you are certainly aware that October has seen the launch of three very special game titles, the long awaited XCOM Enemy Unknown turn based RTS, the DOOM 3 BFG FPS (special remastered edition of the original DOOM 3) and the Medal Of Honor Warfighter FPS. So it goes without saying that i spend quite a few hours playing all of them (except DOOM 3 BFG which was not as remastered as i had hoped) during the past 2 weeks and as i already mentioned in a previous review as expected i took that opportunity to test some of the latest gaming related peripherals to reach our doorstep. Plantronics is a company i bet most of you know but what some of you may not be aware of is that aside their quite impressive Bluetooth headsets they also manufacture surround gaming headsets and today we will be taking a rather thorough look at their GameCom 780 7.1 surround headset."

AMD Catalyst 12.11 Never Settle Driver Performance article and Bundle
     Fri, Oct 26 2012 | 11:46A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,If you purchase an AMD Radeon HD 7970 or 7950 graphics card you`ll get three game titles; Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, and Hitman: Absolution. You also get a 20% discount code valid through EA`s Origin site. This is the crème de la crème when it comes to the Never Settle game bundles and is valued at ~$170 when you figure in the full MSRP of the game titles and discount voucher value. We did a quick price search and the lowest priced AMD Radeon HD 7950 video card is the Power Color AX7950 at $279.99 plus shipping after a $20 rebate. To get three good game titles and a discount for Medal of Honor: Warfighter is pretty damn impressive. You spend ~$280 and then you get roughly $150 in game titles. Hard to go wrong there."

End of Nations Beta @ Techreaction.net
     Fri, Oct 26 2012 | 11:23A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
From the minds that brought us Rift, Trion Worlds, comes an upcoming MMORTS (Massive Multiplayer Online Real Time Strategy) game called End of Nations. The world is in trouble. The global economy is failing, people are starving, governments are hanging by a thread. All seems bleak for the little blue planet we call Earth. That is until an organization says enough is enough, and does something about it. With their advanced tech, and resources they take control, and fix what is broken. Giving food to the hungry, (add more), but all this comes at a price. This new regime decides its time to shape the world in their image and take over the governments of the world, and declare themselves the boss. This doesnt sit well with many of the established governments but with so many of them on the verge of extinction what are they to do? Rally together and fight thats what. With the remaining armed forces of nations across the globe, they band together a resistance movement to stop this threat of world domination. We had a chance to test the latest closed beta event of the game, and we were pretty glad at some of the things we discovered. The game starts off by allowing you to take command of specialized units of either the Resistance, or as the Order of Nations, the faction trying to re-shape the world in their own image. What separates End of Nations from a-lot of other RTS games is two things. One the PvP component is MASSIVE. You could have 28 vs. 28 players on one map. Yes we said 28 vs. 28."

Asus Matrix HD 7970 Platinum Review
     Fri, Oct 26 2012 | 11:13A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
From what ASUS has said about this card, the user is just about guaranteed to hit 1200MHz on the core or beyond. I`ve managed to hit the 1.3GHz line - faster than any other comparison video card. The larger PCB, 20-phase power design, and excellent cooling allow this card to really overclock well. I would love to see one of these on dry ice or LN2 and see how fast it can really go!"

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - K7 CLK_CTL Select
     Fri, Oct 26 2012 | 11:01A | 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 *K7 CLK_CTL Select* setting."

Steelseries Siberia V2 Frost USB-Powered Headset Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Oct 26 2012 | 10:18A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After using this headset for a several weeks, we now understand why the SteelSeries Siberia V2 headset is an award winning headset. The 50mm drivers in the earcups allow a wider range of sound whether playing a game or just listening to music, which is the reason why this headset sounds so good. The comfort is amazing and adjusts automatically to your head. I was able to play Starcraft II and Diablo III for several hours without any of the problems that I normally encountered with a cheaper headset..."

Yesterday we have taken a closer look at AMDs latest drivers and we found some astonishing and yet concerning things. We`ve seen that power consumption in idle conditions is much worse than with earlier drivers. In fact, it`s 55 percent higher than with with previous drivers."

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.
