Posted by: STAFF
The Intel Z77 chipset will be released in April, but we had the privilege of getting the Biostar TZ77XE4 for a first look article.

AZZA Fusion 4000 ATX Super Full Tower Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 9:40A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 4000 Fusion from AZZA is an absolute beast of a chassis. The AZZA Fusion 4000 is a ATX Super Full Tower case. The really cool thing about the Fusion 4000 is that it holds two complete computer systems in a single enclosure. Some of the many features are USB 3.0, 10 expansion bays, 6 external 5 1/4 drive bays, 4x 2 1/2 external easy swap, 6+2 internal 3 1/2 easy swap bays, motherboard compatibility for XL-ATX, E-ATX, Full ATX, Micro ATX and ITX boards. The list of features seems endless for the Fusion 4000 but the pièce de résistance is for the water cooling enthusiasts since the Fusion 4000 holds up to three radiators in different flavors: 1x480mm, 1x360mm and 1x120mm.///"

ASUS HD7970 DirectCU II Top @ ocaholic
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 9:32A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Usually ASUS releases its GPUs in three steps. First of all there are the boring reference cards with an ASUS badge. Secondly there are the funnier DirectCUII cards whereas one of which is sitting in our test system today. Last but not least there are the crazy Matrix cards. Although, this time already the DirectCUII card has got some of the Matrix madness, which we will explain later. Never the less standard for the DCII models is the gigantic triple slot cooler. So, this thing sounds quite interesting."

ASUS EA-N66U Wireless-N450 Ethernet Adapter @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, Mar 29 2012 | 9:28A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Devout followers of the technology industry may have seen a sneak preview of ASUS` latest dabble in networking hardware back in January when it was announced at CES 2012. Maybe you only read an information starved press release after the event, either way there hasn`t been much information regarding the ASUS EA-N66 3-in-1 Dual Band Wireless N450 Ethernet Adapter until now. Benchmark Reviews recently reviewed the ASUS RT-N66U Dual Band Wireless N900 Router and USB-N53 Dual-Band Wireless N300 USB Adapter, and now the EA-N66 3-in-1 Ethernet adapter completes the trio. There are a few Wi-Fi to Ethernet bridges available on the market as well as dedicated Wi-Fi repeaters and Access Points, but never before have all three functions been combined into one device, and never has a piece of networking hardware ever looked so interesting. Speed is the name of the game here, the EA-N66 3-in-1 Dual Band Wireless N Ethernet Adapter has a 10/100/1000 Base-T compliant RJ45 interface and can operate on 2.4GHz and 5GHz wireless N frequencies at speeds up to 450Mb/s."

[Tech ARP] NVIDIA GPU Boost Technology Report
     Wed, Mar 28 2012 | 4:54P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After a rather long hiatus, NVIDIA has finally launched their Kepler microarchitecture and its flagship graphics card, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680. Amongst Kepler`s many new features and improvements is the NVIDIA GPU Boost Technology. We had earlier posted an overview of the new NVIDIA GPU Boost Technology in our tech report of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680, but thought we should go into the details of the NVIDIA GPU Boost as there is this perception that it`s the same thing as Intel`s Turbo Boost Technology. Well, it`s not, as you will see in a moment. Let`s get right down to it."
