Maingear Potenza Super Stock SFF System Review
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 2:06P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Notebook makers aren't the only ones trying to cram big performance parts into little form factors. Desktop system builders are attempting the same thing, and if you require proof, all the evidence you need is packed inside Maingear's Potenza Super Stock (SS) gaming PC. Built around the mini-ITX form factor, the Potenza SS is a small form factor (SFF) system that rises above the moderate expectations of what a comparatively itty-bitty PC can truly deliver. As it turns out, a mini-ITX rig can pack quite the payload. It starts with an Intel Ivy Bridge foundation, and Maingear bumped up the default processor option to an unlocked Core i7 3770K chip. Maingear then goosed the CPU past its stock 3.5GHz clockspeed as part of the company's optional Redline overclocking service...

Lenovo's Hot ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 2:06P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lenovo's venerable ThinkPad line of notebooks has likely won more awards over time for the products’ durable, functional design elements than just about any other family of notebooks on the market. However, it could be said that the business class workhorse line of laptops wasn't winning any beauty contests. This wasn't necessarily a bad thing. ThinkPad's traditionally have been known for their high quality fit and finish and unfailing dependability, but there are far more glamorous notebooks out there for those looking for some style over substance. Recently Lenovo unveiled the new ThinkPad X1 Carbon Ultrabook, and though there are some unmistakable ThinkPad design cues, this 3lb little minx of a machine is about as sleek and nubile as any Ultrabook we've laid eyes on...

Orcs Must Die 2 (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 10:38A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Orcs Must Die 2 (PC) Game Review @ HardwareHeaven.com One game which falls easily into the low cost, addictive category is Orcs Must Die. Even keeping the name simple the idea was to stop a flow of enemies, orcs unsurprisingly, from reaching the end of the level using any means necessary to kill them. In Orcs Must Die 2 more orcs of all shapes and sizes must die and we have hundreds of ways to entertain ourselves in the process."

AMD Firepro W8000 and W9000 Professional Graphics Reviewed @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 10:08A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD has successfully brought the new GCN architecture to the workstation! We noticed some pretty nice performance gains in the FirePro W8000 and W9000 cards from the previous generation of AMD FirePro graphics cards. The AMD FirePro W9000 is impressive on paper as it has 2048 stream processors running at 975MHz, 6GB of ECC GDDR5 memory at 1375MHz and the ability to drive six monitors! In some benchmarks the AMD FirePro W9000 blew away the previous generation FirePro V8800 video card, but in others it was..."

Google Nexus 7 Tablet and Jelly Bean Review: Android Shows Smooth Movies
     Mon, Aug 13 2012 | 9:05A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
And then there?s the price. For just $199 you can have the 8GB version and for $249 you can purchase the 16GB model (I suggest the second option). This makes the Nexus 7 the only 7-inch tablet relevant to the market today. The products from Samsung and Acer now look terribly over-priced. Amazon?s Kindle Fire, on the other hand, is a far inferior product."
