[Tech ARP] Western Digital VelociRaptors Vs. Solid State Drives Rev. 2.0
     Wed, Sep 12 2012 | 10:39A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We recently reviewed both the latest Western Digital VelociRaptor and the *Intel 520 Series Solid State Drive, and it got us thinking about a direct comparison. Both drives may be fundamentally different in the way they work but they actually target the same market - the hardware performance enthusiast! With graphics cards and processors so powerful these days and DDR3 SDRAM so cheap, the only thing holding back a system is often the storage subsystem. Hence, there is an increase emphasis on the performance of the hard disk drive, or its rival, the solid state drive. Many have said that the days of the hard disk drive is waning, and the age of the solid state drive has begun. But is the hard disk drive really on the way out? That is what this small comparison is about. "

Sapphire Radeon HD 7750 Low Profile Video Card @ Pro-Clockers
     Wed, Sep 12 2012 | 9:10A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As of right now the Radeon HD 7750 maybe at the bottom of the performance chart but it does do well when it comes to moderate gaming and excel when it comes to digital video output and sound. Don`t let the placement of the card fool you. Sapphire`s newest 7750 have a nice advantage over the rest and it has nothing really to do with performance. The low profile HD 7750 is ideal for those that little space internally for larger cards. Yes, a great fit the many Dell and HP machine with the extra small enclosures and smaller power supplies."

SanDisk Extreme 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SDCZ80-064G) Review
     Tue, Sep 11 2012 | 6:05P | 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!

     Tue, Sep 11 2012 | 4:10P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
These days, there are so many workstation graphics card models that it has become quite impossible to keep up with the different configurations. Therefore, we decided to compile this comprehensive guide to *135 workstation graphics cards*. We hope this comparison will provide an easy reference for those who are interested in comparing the specifications of the various workstation graphics cards in the market as well as those already obsolescent or obsolete. We will keep this guide updated regularly so do check back for the latest updates. Here are the latest updates in Revision 6.7 : *- Added the NVIDIA Quadro K5000 graphics card. - Added the NVIDIA Quadro 410 graphics card. - Reorganized the NVIDIA tables. - Added a new Bus Interface specification for the NVIDIA graphics cards.*"

BIOS Option Of The Week - Graphic Window WR Combin
     Tue, Sep 11 2012 | 4:04P | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the *Graphic Window WR Combin * setting."

Lenovo ThinkStation S30 Workstation Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Sep 11 2012 | 4:03P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Workstations and business related products are not normally what we cover here at ThinkComputers. We are more consumer and enthusiast based, but our friends at Lenovo asked us if we would take a look at their latest workstation system the ThinkStation S30. We decided why not since we never cover things like this and who knows many some of you reading this review might pick up a few of these for your office. The ThinkStation S30 we are taking a look at today features an Intel Xeon E5-1620 Sandy Bridge processor, NVIDIA Quadro 2000 graphics, 8GB of DDR3-1333 memory, and two Seagate 500GB 7200 RPM drives in a RAID 0 setup. Lets see what the S30 is all about!"

OCZ Agility 4 256GB Solid State Drive Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Sep 11 2012 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in July we took a look at the Vertex 4 solid state drive from OCZ. This was the first consumer solid state drive from OCZ to use the Indilinx Everest 2 controller. Today we are looking at OCZs second solid state drive to use that controller, the Agility 4. The Agility 4 features read and write speeds of 420MB/s read and 410MB/s write respectively. Since OCZ has been making solid state drives they have always had the Vertex line and Agility line. The Vertex line was always the high-end enthusiast product, while the Agility was aimed for the mainstream. It is no different here, unlike the Vertex 4 that uses synchronous NAND the Agility 4 uses asynchronous NAND and is much less expensive. As of this review the Agility 4 is $189.99 for the $256GB version. Read on as we check the Agility 4 out!"

Patriot Viper 3 Intel Extreme Masters Memory 1866MHz 16GB Review
     Tue, Sep 11 2012 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Equipped with the latest iteration of Patriot`s Viper heat sink package that has evolved over the years - from the original AOC (Aluminum on Copper) design to a stamped aluminum heat shield - these do well in terms of cooling. Even with the higher voltage and increased clock speed, the Viper 3-designed heat sinks kept the thermals in check with just the airflow from the fans on the H100. Currently priced at $123 from online outlets, the Intel Extreme Master modules look and perform well, fitting right into the theme of many blue and black motherboards on the market. Patriot`s Intel Extreme Master Limited Edition modules offer cooling performance coupled with a low voltage requirement and good looks that add up to a package of high capacity at a relatively low price. On top of that, you get some overclocking headroom if you choose to go that route."

Review: Gigabyte GA-7PESLX mit 2x Xeon E5 2470 @ Ocaholic
     Tue, Sep 11 2012 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Instead of an enthusiast motherboard, this time we will look at a workstation motherboard. Meanwhile it is not a entry level motherboard, Gigabyte provided us with their latest high end dual socket motherboard which is the mainstream model of this new series. It features up to 384 GB of DDR3 ECC memory running at 1600 MHz, two 8 core / 16 threads processor, a high end LSI SAS controller and more. This time we will not only review the motherboard but also benchmark this dual Xeon Octocore setup under real world workloads/situations. Feel the power!"

Sapphire HD 7770 GHz FleX Edition Graphics Card Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Tue, Sep 11 2012 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphire HD 7770 GHz FleX Edition Graphics Card Review @ HardwareHeaven.com In the mainstream arena one of the key products of the moment is the Radeon HD 7770, a card designed to offer an excellent price to performance ratio. For those who are on a limited budget keeping costs to a minimum can mean money spent elsewhere and with their FleX Edition Sapphire look to facilitate multi-screen gaming at minimal cost. Today we have their new Radeon 7770 FleX Edition (GHz Edition) on our test bench, but is 5760x1080 gaming achievable with it?"

Sapphire HD 7950 Vapor-X 3 GB @ techPowerUp
     Tue, Sep 11 2012 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphire`s new HD 7950 Vapor-X comes overclocked out of the box. Thanks to clever use of the dual BIOS feature you can also activate a second Lethal Boost BIOS which runs even higher clocks. Cooling is provided by a large dual fan vapor chamber cooler which keeps the card cool and provides low noise operation."

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
