ASUS F2A85-M PRO Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Oct 25 2012 | 6:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As AMDs APUs shift to the FM2 socket, we see the A55 and A75 motherboard chipsets carried over and joined by a new release, the A85X FCH (Hudson D4). If the A55 chipset targets the low end market while the A75 hits out at the mainstream, it is natural that the A85X will appeal more towards gamers and enthusiasts with the addition of CrossfireX support. As a leader in motherboard design and innovation, it is not unsurprising that ASUS have released a range of A85X based motherboards set to exploit the new `Virgo` platform."

ROCCAT Kone XTD Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Oct 25 2012 | 4:06A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Kone XTD, on review today, is a mouse grounded firmly in the successful Kone products of yesteryear. It superficially resembles the Kone and (more closely) Kone[+], classic ROCCAT designs in shape and layout, but adds an improved laser sensor and ROCCAT Talk/Talk FX technology to the mix as additional premium features."

SPEEDLINK KUDOS RS Gaming Mouse @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, Oct 25 2012 | 12:54A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s annoying when certain jazzed up peripherals are branded as `Gaming` especially when they have no particular benefit to gamers. SPEEDLINK on the other hand have made a very good effort with the KUDOS RS Gaming Mouse, while it is very flashy looking with its red metallic finish it also packs some good features too. The KUDOS RS features include a 5700 dpi laser sensor, on-the-fly sensitivity and profile switching, 7 programmable buttons and a 4D scroll wheel. Here at Benchmark Reviews many of us are enthusiastic gamers and we strive for quality and functionality as just much as you, our faithful readers. Please read on to find out more."

Posted by: STAFF
* You`ve heard it here first: Microsoft is about to release a new version of Windows. Called Windows 8, the OS aims to change the way we use our computers, and it`s been built from the ground up with touch in mind. Like all other OS releases, there`s both things to admire and things to complain about. First, we`ll tackle the latter."

REVIEW: Gigabyte GA-F2A85X-UP4 Motherboard @ PureOverclock
     Thu, Oct 25 2012 | 12:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD has just released their Trinity APUs. Trinity takes Fusion to the next level and incorporates AMD`s new processor technology called Piledriver. Piledriver spawns from AMD`s Bulldozer introduced about one year ago, but it uses an entirely new instruction set. In our A10-5800K review, we saw some dramatic improvements in processing power as well as better graphics with the built-in Radeon 7660D. Gigabyte is all prepped and ready for these AMD changes and today we have their GA-F2A85X-UP4 ready to roll. The GA-F2A85X-UP4 introduces a new chipset from AMD called the A85 and it looks intriguing. Let`s rush Gigabyte`s newest edition to the lab and see what shakes out."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Patriot Memory Intel Extreme Masters XMP Certified Viper III 1866MHz DDR3 Memory Kit Review
     Wed, Oct 24 2012 | 9:22P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Patriot Memory Intel Extreme Masters XMP Certified Viper III 1866MHz DDR3 Memory Kit Review* A few weeks ago, we got a hands on look at Patriot Memorys new Viper III DDR3 memory in the 2133 MHz flavor. We discovered that the ICs underneath the light weight, attractive spreaders were Hynix and offer about 2GB/s more memory bandwidth compared to many of the other modules on the market that utilize high quality Micron or Samsung chips. While the Viper III is XMP Ready, the Intel Extreme Masters is XMP Certified. In other words, its certified to work on any Intel Z77 chipset confirmed by Intel. Lets have a look at the IEM memory and see what more it can offer consumers. *"

A quick look at the data on Apples Fusion Drive
     Wed, Oct 24 2012 | 9:11P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The biggest differences are in that since it`s not a mirrored hybrid solution, where the SSD space is not available, and a failure of the HDD causes loss of all data. Fusion Drive combines the two volumes and *adds* the space together, and the apps or files will sit on either device (but not both). All files written go to the SSD first and are later shifted to the HDD in the background. This is actually a very smart way to handle things."

Aerocool XPredator X1 Evil Black Edition Case Review
     Wed, Oct 24 2012 | 9:10P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The styling of the case isn`t too bad and it does grow on you as you work with it, but unfortunately cases don`t sell themselves on appearances alone. The top vents being moveable are quite useless as I can`t imagine anyone ever closing them and as designed they`re both flimsy and fairly cheap feeling. The lack of space to hide wiring isn`t unforgiveable but it does make the included grommets somewhat superfluous. The dangerous flub with the fan controller plugs is also unforgivable from a company that has been building custom PC parts for a decade. I was tempted to actually wire it improperly but, even though I do enjoy fire, I didn`t want to risk any of my hardware on a test like that. I would suggest you avoid the possibility of wiring it improperly at all by not buying this case unless you really really like the way it looks. If the price drops dramatically when launched in the US it might be worth considering for a budget build but as it sits I won`t be opening my wallet for one."

[DreamWare Computers] SilverStone ST45SF-G SFX PSU
     Wed, Oct 24 2012 | 7:08P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With an increase in the amount of ITX boards available on the market and the fact that with modern technology you can now make a pretty powerful gaming machine on nothing more than an ITX board, SilverStone was looking to up the ante with the ST45SF. Recently releasing the ST45SF-G, the ST45SF has now been upgraded to an 80PLUS Gold certification and given modular cables, all in a chassis no bigger than the original ST45SF!"

Dell XPS 12 Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Wed, Oct 24 2012 | 6:17P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Windows 8 hybrid ultrabooks are here, transforming from laptop to tablet, and back again, with ease. The second of these shape-shifting laptops to come onto the market is the Dell XPS 12. As a convertible ultrabook, the Dell XPS 12 works as both a laptop and a tablet, utilizing the same flip-and-fold design last seen on the Dell Inspiron Duo."
