News: Errata prompts Intel to disable TSX in Haswell early Broadwell CPUs
     Sun, Aug 17 2014 | 7:43A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The TSX instructions built into Intel`s Haswell CPU cores haven`t become widely used by everyday software just yet, but they promise to make certain types of multithreaded applications run much faster than they can today. Some of the savviest software developers are likely building TSX-enabled software right about now. Unfortunately, that work may have to come to a halt, thanks to a bugor errata, as Intel prefers to call themin Haswell`s TSX implementation that can cause critical software failures."

Video Perspective: Corsair Carbide Air 240 Micro-ATX Case Review
     Sat, Aug 16 2014 | 9:31P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The truth is, the Carbide Air 240 is a great little case that you can pick up for under $100 that will accommodate just about any combination of hardware you can think of. The primary restriction is in the motherboard: it needs to be a Micro-ATX or Mini-ITX design. Considering you can get Z97 as well as X79/X99 motherboards in mATX already, that means your options for filling the Air 240 are better than you might believe considering its small size."

Canon EF 24-105 f/4L IS USM Telephoto Lense Review
     Sat, Aug 16 2014 | 12:00P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Typically when you go to buy a DSLR and you don’t have any lenses already, you would opt to buy one with what is called a kit lens. It is called a kit lens because with DSLRs, there are two main parts to the camera. The body and the lens. Together they form a “kit,” you need both in order for the camera to take photos. Usually, when I think of kit lenses I think of cheap, low quality optics and casing and worst of all, a variable aperture over the focal length range.
