www.pcstats.com

In this special episode of Two and a Half Geeks, we welcome Alex Chang from MSI into HotHardware's Connecticut lab to talk about some of the innovations going on at MSI. Alex and Marco talk about the new Z77 MPower motherboard, for which every board goes through an overclocked stress test before ever hitting store shelves. Alex and Marco also discuss the high-end MSI N680 GTX Lightning and its various customizations, including the "GPU Reactor", and the MSI R7770 Power Edition with its multi-mode TransThermal cooler with Dust Removal technology...

Intel's Demos McAfee Social Protection, A Condom For Your Digital Life
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 3:27P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During the Day Two keynote address at the Intel Developer Forum, Renee James, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Intel’s Software & Services Group, talked about software development, security and services in an “age of transparent computing”. Much of the talk was geared towards software developers and the desire to code once and deploy across a variety of hardware platforms, which of course lead to a long discussion on the benefits and virtues HTML 5, which Intel obviously is firmly behind. During the security-centric portion of the keynote, however, Renee brought out a rep from Intel’s McAfee division to show off a beta release of the McAfee Social Protection app, which they called a "condom for your digital life"...

IDF Tech Zone: Ivy Bridge Windows 8 Tablets

Posted by: STAFF
Traditionally at IDF, Intel's Advanced Technology Zone is where all the cool stuff happens. Whether it be public demos setup for hands-on opportunities with next generation Intel technologies or backroom sessions with Intel Advanced Engineering and Marketing teams showing early engineering samples to members of the press, this place is where we get up close and personal with many of the unveilings that Intel rolls out over the course of the conference. Yesterday we spent time with Intel's Performance Engineering and Benchmark teams discussing what encompasses a satisfying user experience on the ultra-mobile platforms that are all the rage in the market today. On display were a number Windows 8-driven tablets powered by Intel...

Avatar S Gaming Mouse Review

Posted by: STAFF
Gaming mice can be expensive, though, and it really sucks to purchase an expensive mouse just to find out it wasn’t as good as you thought. The Avatar S mouse has been out for a while, but still holds strong because it is one of the cheapest gaming-grade mice you can find.

IDF Day 1: Haswell Live Graphics Demo
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 3:26P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel’s Dadi (David) Perlmutter, General Manager Intel Architecture Group and Chief Product Officer, opened up the 2012 Intel Developers Forum by reflecting back on the significance of this day, the eleventh anniversary of the attacks on 9/11. Today, however, also marks the fifteenth anniversary of IDF, so Dadi ultimately moved on to a quick overview of the many advances and innovations that have taken place at Intel since the event began in 1997. Perlmutter showed off a Medfield SoC alongside a Xeon Phi, along with a number of Intel Atom and Core powered Windows 8 tablets and Ultrabooks, but he finished with a couple of live demos showing the company’s upcoming Haswell-based 4th Gen Core Processors in action…

SanDisk Extreme 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 2:31P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What's neat about the Sandisk Extreme 64GB USB 3.0 flash drive is that it's built with the kind of flash memory found in Solid State Drives . Sandisk won't reveal the exact type of NAND flash memory mind you, but rate the drive at speeds of 190MB/s read and 170MB/s write. That's quick. For a clearer picture on the capabilities of the SanDisk Extreme flash drive, PCSTATS benchmarked it against the Patriot Supersonic.
Both flash drives are native USB 3.0 devices and 64GB in capacity, but the type of flash memory differs between them. Where the SanDisk Extreme posted results of 196MB/s read and 173MB/s write in CrystalDiskMark (100MB, Sequential), the Patriot Supersonic flash drive managed just 114.2MB/s read and 59.33MB/s write - a virtual snails pace by comparison!

Fractal Design Define R4 Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 12:11P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Fractal Design Define R4 chassis is what I consider to be the pinnacle of how a mid-tower chassis is supposed to be like. The Define R4 chassis was fully capable of being able to install all of computer components into this chassis, and this chassis was more than capable of being able to hide all of my PSU wires; therefore, making the interior of this chassis pretty much wire free..."

Sapphire FleX HD 7770 GHz Edition @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphires selection of cards for the HD 7000 series has been impressive to say the least. On top of having stock and overclocked versions of every model, they also have a few different models like the Vapor-X and FleX, each serving a different purpose. The vapor-X models having ungraded cooling and their FLeX models have improved support for multiple monitors. We have taken a look at everything else from their HD 7770 lineup; it’s only natural that we take a look at the HD 7770 as well. We know that FleX cards can be great deals for people looking for a cheaper way to run multiple monitors without having to pick up active Displayport adapters or Displayport monitors, let’s take a look at the HD 7770 FleX and see if it holds up to the FleX name.

IDF 2012: Kingston Shows Off Windows To Go

Posted by: STAFF
"The Kingston DataTraveler Workspace measures 75.29 x 22.98 x 16.44mm and as we mentioned earlier is a USB 3.0 drive. Kingston hasn't set final specifications for speed, but right now they are seeing sequential Read/Write speeds while running Windows 8 of 250/150MB/s and sustained random 4K Read/Write while running Windows 8 of 3,750/6,000 IOPS. These are pretty impressive drive speeds and we were told this drive can score 22,000 points on the PCMark Vantage HDD test suite..."

WD My Book VelociRaptor Duo review
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Western Digital My Book VelociRaptor Duo shows what's possible when you combine Thunderbolt with a traditional hard drive, you get an external hard drive with extremely high transfer rates. It's technically possible to daisychain several of them to increase the speed even more. So if you want external storage with a Thunderbolt connector, then the Western Digital My Book VelociRaptor Duo is a great solution.

Fourth generation Intel Core preview: all about Haswell
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 12:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Haswell is a new architecture based on an existing manufacturing process. That means it will have the 22nm Tri-Gate ‘3D’ transistors introduced with Ivy Bridge. The main enhancements of the CPU architecture come in the shape of new instructions (AVX 2) and support for transactional memory. The latter should make multi-threaded software run faster. The integrated GPU in the consumer models should also be a lot faster, and it will support DirectX 11.1. Intel is taking the integration of the chipset in the processor a step further, even releasing a complete system-on-a-chip (SoC) version of the processor.
