REVIEW: MSI GTX 650 Ti Power Edition @ PureOverclock
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 11:40P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today`s review here is a look at the non-reference MSI GTX 650 Ti Power Edition, a model that sports a custom cooler and a factory overclock for only $10 more than the reference design. We expect some good things from this card and Nvidia has been extremely successful with the Kepler products, so will this card measure up? Can it beat the competing Radeon cards? Let`s dive in and answer those questions and more."

Zotac Geforce GTX 650 Ti AMP! Edition Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 11:36P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Zotac Geforce GTX 650 Ti AMP! Edition is well equipped to handle today`s games. The 650 Ti AMP! Edition features Zotac`s signature overclock. This GPU uses the latest NVIDIA Kepler design. The overclock sets the core at 1033MHz and memory at 6200MHz. This is also the better of the 650 Ti series, equipped with 2 GB of 128-bit GDDR5 memory. Deviating a bit from the traditional 650 Ti Zotac has swapped the DisplayPort for another HDMI connection. This gives the 650 Ti AMP! Edition two DVI connections and two HDMI connections. Out of the box, the Zotac Geforce GTX 650 Ti AMP! Edition comes with a 2 year warranty. Upon online registration, at Zotac`s website, the warranty will be extended for free.///"

Matrox DualHead2Go External Multi-Display Adaptor Review
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 9:51P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Matrox DualHead2Go is the display adaptor you have been looking for but never found. The image quality for such a small adaptor is superb - it never looked washed out or faded as you can see from the introductory photos for this review. I just cannot say enough about the quality; it is simply one of those things you need to see firsthand to appreciate. I have used a number of external monitor adaptors ranging from VGA to DVI and even HDMI, and this has to be the best looking one I have used to date."

SSD NEWS: PNY XLR8 Pro 480GB SSD Review - Capacity Price and Performance
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 8:17P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our SSD review today examines the new PNY XLR8 Pro 6Gbps SSD and one might think that, after reviewing SSDs for six years and having somewhere in the area of 100TB of SSD storage in the office, receiving a 480GB SSD in the mail wouldn`t be exciting. In that, you would be wrong. As much as getting such an SSD in your hands would be exciting for anyone, the truth is that I race to the front each and every time a courier shows up. It`s in the blood I think. I truly love SSD technology."

Samsung 840 Series 250GB SSD Full Review - Time for some TLC
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 1:51P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The biggest consideration you have to make when judging the 840 is that it`s a budget version of a Pro-level SSD. Triple Level Cell flash is slower to write and provides less endurance as compared to MLC units, and while the 840 does perform quite well as a first generation TLC SSD, there are several areas where it has no choice but to be outmaneuvered by the MLC-equipped competition. If you think back a few years, you`d realize it took MLC technology a while to catch up with the speeds of SLC. This is simply a necessary repetition of the past, in the interest of creating cheaper SSDs for the future."

NZXT Phantom 820 @ techPowerUp
     Tue, Oct 23 2012 | 11:29A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXT has evolved the Phantom into the next generation chassis. Bigger, more elaborate, plenty of new features and a higher price tag are some of what sets the Phantom 820 apart from its older brethren. Is this big case a true evolution into something great or a mere mutation with no place to be?"
