Diamond Radeon HD 7870 2GB Double Black Diamond Review @ circuitREMIX
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 4:20P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Shortly after the launch of the Radeon HD 7870, the only video cards available were clones of the reference design. Now that we`re past the initial launch period, new models of the 7870 are now available which deviate from the standard. The model we`re looking at today is called the Double Black Diamond. A step up from the vanilla 7870, the Double Black Diamond comes with an overclock of 50MHz to the GPU and 25MHz (200MHz GDDR5 effective)."

EVGA GeForce GTX 670 2GB Superclocked Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 4:20P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As the GTX 670 launched, many wondered what kinds of changes NVIDIA`s board partners would make with the final retail cards.  While Gigabyte, ASUS, Galaxy and some others went the route of fully customized versions, EVGA stuck with the reference design for their new Superclocked edition.  But other than increased clock speeds, EVGA has packed in a few additional surprises for us. "

     Wed, May 16 2012 | 4:09P | Motherboards | PermaLink

The P8Z77-V Deluxe is ASUS` flagship model regarding the standard desktop models which support Intels latest CPUs. Therefore it`s able to score with a long featurelist and there are even some more interesting things to look at.

Are you curious how Diablo III performs on the latest laptops with integrated graphics?

We will be using comparing the Intel Core i7-3920XM Ivy Bridge Processor with Intel HD Graphics 4000 to the AMD A10-4600M Trinity APU with AMD Radeon HD 7660G graphics to see which comes out on top!"

Gainward GeForce GTX 670 Phantom Review
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After many months of talking up its latest architecture, Nvidia reclaimed the single-GPU performance crown with its GeForce GTX 680, which outpaced the Radeon HD 7970 by about 7% in our tests. Kepler's arrival forced AMD to slash prices across its Southern Islands lineup, including a $70 drop on the HD 7970, putting it at $479 or about 4% cheaper than the GTX 680's MSRP of $499. The HD 7950 also took a $60 cut to $399, making it one of the most tempting 7000 series cards because it has no equal -- or had no equal, we should say. Continuing Kepler's rollout, Nvidia has unveiled the GTX 670, which is priced against the HD 7950 at $399. Despite being $100 cheaper than the GTX 680, the GTX 670 doesn't appear to be much slower on paper, and that could spell disaster for AMD.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 Reviews, EVGA and Gigabyte
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hot on the heels of the impressive, dual-GPU powered GeForce GTX 690, which launched just a few short days ago, NVIDIA is already back with a much more affordable Kepler variant featuring a slightly pared down GK104 GPU. What’s perhaps most interesting to all of you though, is that this new card will offer near-GeForce GTX 680 performance, at prices starting under the $400 mark. The new GeForce GTX 670 we’ll be showing you here today sports the very same chip that powers the high-end GeForce GTX 680 and 690, but with a few shader cores disabled. The cards will sport a more compact design and a few other tweaks as well...

Gainward GeForce GTX 670 Phantom
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 12:01P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There isn’t much more that needs to be said, the GeForce GTX 670 is the best value, most efficient high-end graphics card available right now, assuming it is actually available. Should it be possible to pick up a GeForce GTX 670 graphics card for $399, we suggest that you do.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 670 review plus SLI and 3-way SLI
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GeForce GTX 670 is an average of 10.1 percent slower than the GeForce GTX 680 according to our benchmarks. The price is also about 22 percent lower, however, and you don't need to be a math wiz to realise that the price/performance ratio of the GTX 670 is better than that of the GTX 680. The most interesting difference is with the similarly priced Radeon HD 7950. Nvidia's GTX 670 performs an average of 14.9 percent better than AMD's card. While you can find some good discounts for AMDs card, at an equal price the Nvidia card gives you more bang for your buck. In areas other than performance it's a draw. Energy consumption is almost the same and both feature PCI-Express 3.0, support three monitors on one card, an integrated video encoder, excellent video decoder and DirectX 11.1.

Posted by: STAFF
NZXT Switch 810 Special Edition Case Review @ HardwareHeaven.com A few months ago we took a look at the latest chassis from NZXT, the Switch 810. It scored well but no case is perfect and since that original launch NZXT have been listening to feedback from end users and reviewers which has resulted in a special edition of the case. With a Gun Metal finish and some revised design aspects the latest 810 aims to provide everything the mainstream and enthusiast user needs and we have one on our test bench today."

Patriot Memory SuperSonic Boost 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 11:59A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Storage media prices regardless of type (hard disk drives, solid state drives and flash drives) have been taking a significant hit during the past 3 weeks and so after giving it some thought we decided that it would be appropriate if we took a look at the latest USB 3.0 flash drives to hit the market from the big players/manufacturers in the market since now seems to be a very good time for such a purchase. However since not every single drive has made it here yet instead of doing a large comparison this time over we will be standalone reviews as they come. So today the first drive we will be testing is the latest SuperSonic Boost 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive by Patriot Memory."

PC Power and Cooling (OCZ) Silencer MkII 750W PSU review
     Wed, May 16 2012 | 11:59A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new model PC Power & Cooling power supply is their Silencer Mk II series of PSU`s. It`s the `bloke` PSU series again with a simple design, and hey -- nothing is modular so the PSU certainly is a squid inside your system with all the tentacles (wires), but yeah .. lots of you don`t really care about cable management, they just want the best of the best and sure ...as you`ll learn you can`t really complain about the essence that is the Mk II Silence 750W power supply. Check the review right here"

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.
