Corsair Vengeance M90 Laser Gaming Mouse @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, May 03 2012 | 4:12P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With fifteen buttons, a 5700 DPI laser sensor, a solid aluminum core, and onboard memory the Corsair Vengeance M90 can be customized to fit almost every users need. However, button counts, high DPI sensors, and unique designs do not automatically guarantee a great product and so each product must be evaluated on its usefulness as a tool and not just raw numbers. So please join Benchmark Reviews as we review the Corsair M90 and evaluate if it is worthy of the legendary Corsair name or if it is simply marketing hype with no substance to back it up."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SATA3 SSD Review
     Thu, May 03 2012 | 4:05P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A few months ago, we awarded the Kingston HyperX series SSDs an Editor?s Choice award for very sound reasons: great performance, excellent firmware, and a great upgrade bundle. All of this helps ensure that you benefit from the full SSD experience. Then, Kingston released another winning choice in the surprisingly affordable V+200 Enterprise SSD. Because it uses less expensive 3K synchronous NAND, and didn?t sacrifice on performance, it also earned our top honors. That brings us to the new HyperX 3K SSD. *"

Corsair Vengeance M60 FPS Mouse Review @ Techgage
     Thu, May 03 2012 | 11:53A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
* Corsair impressed us greatly when we took its K60 mechanical keyboard for a test last month, so we were anxious to see if we`d once again be wowed with its M60 FPS gaming mouse. From a hardware standpoint, the mouse is top-notch, but as we quickly discovered, it takes quality software to round out the entire package."

Dell UltraSharp U2312HM 23? Monitor Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, May 03 2012 | 11:53A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell`s UltraSharp monitor lineup is full of high end products that boast high quality and equally lofty prices.  However, their new U2312HM breaks that mold by offering an IPS panel on a reasonably sized screen at a budget friendly price. "

Ubuntu 12.04 vs. Windows 7: Intel Sandy/Ivy Bridge Loses On Linux
     Thu, May 03 2012 | 11:21A | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here`s a comparison of the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS versus Microsoft Windows 7 performance when it comes to using Intel Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge processors with integrated graphics. While the Sandy Bridge graphics performance was once faster when it came to OpenGL with the open-source Linux driver, that`s no longer the case. The Linux OpenGL performance for both Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge hardware is now slower in most GL workloads than Intel`s Windows 7 x64 driver."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 Benchmark Performance @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, May 03 2012 | 10:57A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back on 22 March 2012, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 video card made headlines and became the best-performing single-GPU graphics card on the market. Only six weeks later NVIDIA engineers have successfully combined two 28nm GK104 GPUs together to create their new GeForce GTX 690. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests game performance with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690, a double-slot graphics card equipped with a pair of Kepler GPUs. Featuring NVIDIA`s cutting-edge GPU Boost technology, the GeForce GTX 690 video card can dynamically adjust power and clock speeds based on real-time application demands. Using EVGA Precision-X, the GeForce GTX 690 has both GPUs overclocked beyond 1200 GHz to produce ultimate graphical performance in PC video games."

SilverStone Precision PS07 White Case Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Thu, May 03 2012 | 10:55A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Silverstone Precision PS07 is a case targeted to microATX motherboards, also supporting the Micro-ITX and Micro-DTX formats. It is bigger than traditional small form factor (SFF) cases, such as the Sugo series models from the same manufacturer (see the Sugo SG05, Sugo SG06, and Sugo SG07 reviews). In fact, the Precision PS07 has similar size and features as the Temjin TJ08-E. Let`s take a look at the new white version of the PS07."

Antec Three Hundred Two Mid-Tower Case Review @ Madshrimps
     Thu, May 03 2012 | 10:43A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Antec, one of the biggest case manufacturers on our humble blue planet, has recently upgraded their cheap entry level gamers case, the Antec Three Hundred. The new version is simply baptised as the Three Hundred Two. The predecessor was one of Antec`s best selling chassis, but Antec had to bring their little 300 up to 2012 standards. No quickly removable HDD bays, no tool-less optical drive bays and cable management was close to non existent. Logic design flaws as the original Three Hundred enclosure already dates back from 2009. Let`s open the box and see what the Antec engineers came up with."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 review
     Thu, May 03 2012 | 10:36A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the all new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690. NVIDIA took two of their best (Kepler GK104) GPUs, placed it onto one card, topped it off with a very nice and dandy cooler and calls this symbiosis of components a single solution graphics card. Internally on that card a small PLX chip functions as PCI Express bridge in-between the two GPUs and sure, that means SLI is in full effect. And the performance .. well breathtaking of course. Have a peek right here in our 27 page review"

NVIDIA GTX 690 Review
     Thu, May 03 2012 | 9:40A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The highest clock speeds I could reach on this card are 1202MHz on the two cores and 1620Mhz on the GDDR5 memory. To reach the highest clock speeds I adjusted the GPU core voltage to a maximum of 1175mv and raised the core clock speed by 100MHz and proceeded to test stability using Unigine Heaven Benchmark 3.0 at a resolution of 5760x1080 using the maximum settings. I continued in 10MHz increments until the benchmark failed. Failure came pretty quickly at just +123MHz for a +13% increase in clock speed or 1028MHz. GPU Boosted clocks ranged from 1189MHz to 1202MHz in this configuration. To get the most from the GDDR5 memory I followed the same scaling and ended up with a memory clock speed of 1620 MHz or 6480MHz effective or an 8% bump in speed. Although not massive increases on a percentage basis the increases deliver measurable increases in performance across the board from an already fast card."

When it comes to the performance results, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 easily becomes the fastest gaming graphics card that we have ever tested. It is also one of the better looking cards that we have ever used as well.

Intel Ivy Bridge i5-3570K and i7-3770K Review @ Madshrimps
     Thu, May 03 2012 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Time seems to fly. Just over one year ago Intel introduced Sandy Bridge to the world. Packing a high performance CPU, with mega overclockability for the K skews, yet keeping power consumption and heat to a bare minimum. The best part was that Sandy Bridge was affordable and even a big threat to Intel`s flagship, the socket 1366. World records were smashed at HWBot, as this little socket 1155 CPU overclocked to 5.8Ghz and beyond. The instructions per clock were way faster then anything we were accustomed too. End of last year, it was time to replace the aging socket 1366 by Sandy Bridge-E. The socket 2011 has big potential with it`s quad channel RAM support and multi GPU excellence via 40 PCI-E lanes. But the overall clock speeds of the SB-E were disappointing. Most CPU`s don`t even go over 5500mhz on cold. Today we are gonna introduce the Die shrink of the little affordable Sandy Bridge CPU`s : Codename Ivy Bridge <"

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 Review - Dual GK104 Kepler Greatness
     Thu, May 03 2012 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 4GB dual-GPU Kepler graphics cards is easily the fastest and highest performing gaming solution on the market. As we often state here, if you have the money to spend, this is the place to do it - a $1000 GPU is going to net you a better improvement in gaming experience than a $1000 CPU, that`s for sure. By combining a pair of GK104 parts on a single PCB, and constructing an incredibly sexy cooler to go along with it, NVIDIA has crowned a new king."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 690 Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Thu, May 03 2012 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GTX 690 is hardly a secret anymore but the newest member of the GeForce lineup has nonetheless been shrouded in mystery. This dual GPU behemoth packs a pair of fully enabled Kepler-based GK104 cores and is supposed to win back the performance crown for NVIDIA. But at nearly $1000, is it really worthwhile?* *"

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.
