IDF 2012: Kingston Shows Off Windows To Go
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 12:01P | Memory | PermaLink
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.

the Intel Developer Forum.
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 12:00P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ah, IDF – the Intel Developer Forum. Almost every year–while I sit in slightly uncomfortable chairs and stare at outdated and color washed projector screens–information is passed on about Intel's future architectures, products and technologies. Last year we learned the final details about Ivy Bridge, and this year we are getting the first details about Haswell, which is the first architecture designed by Intel from the ground up for servers, desktops, laptops, tablets and phones. Quote: "Haswell (at least in this iteration) will be available in various different configurations including 2-4 processing cores, three different levels of graphics subsystem, differing idle and active power levels, interconnects, and platforms. This will greatly increase the power and performance ranges of Haswell compared to Ivy Bridge (and Sandy Bridge) and is enabled by the system agent that acts as the intermediary between all of the components on the SoC."

What we're talking about is the ASUS Matrix HD7970 Platinum and luckily today is the day when the embargo concerning pictures of this beautiful piece of hardware lifts. But unfortunately we still can't talk about the specs. But nevertheless you'll be able to find detailed information on ocaholic at the 27th of September.

RAIDON Runner R2420-B3 Easy Ejection 2.5 SSD/HDD RAID Enclosure Review
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 11:44A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Taking part in online game beta tests while also performing hardware reviews at the same time is not only incredibly tiresome (especially if you are participating in 3 closed betas) but also takes an amazing amount of time (even more if you really enjoy the games you`re testing) and so because of that lately Ive been focusing on peripheral devices (such as gaming mice, keyboards, speakers and headsets) which i can use while testing these games in order to save every bit of time that i possibly can (i do need some sleep after all). However exceptions are always welcome and so today we will be taking a look at a storage product the Runner 2420-B3, the latest dual bay external 2.5 SSD/HDD RAID enclosure by RAIDON."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2GB Review - Kepler GK106 at $229
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 10:17A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Considering that the GTX 660 2GB card is going to have an MSRP about $30 less than the HD 7870, and about $30 more than Radeon HD 7850, that gives the new GTX 660 a pretty positive result. It is not quite the runaway that the early GTX 600-series cards were, but as the cost of these graphics cards decreases, the margins get tighter and the overlap between them will increase dramatically."

Lucid Logix VirtuMVP for Notebooks First Look: Integrated And Discrete Join Forces
     Thu, Sep 13 2012 | 9:30A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hopefully Lucid will get these flaws rectified in short order. They shouldn`t be difficult to fix. Lucid has already done the hard part. Theyve managed to squeeze a minor to major performance increase from a laptops existing hardware without introducing in-game glitches or instability. If they slap on a decent coat of paint theyll have a compelling product - and the Origin EON11-S may end up being the only 11.6 gaming laptop worth buying."

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.
