Sapphire HD 6970 FleX Battlefield 3 Edition Review
     Fri, Nov 25 2011 | 9:06A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To speak more specifically about the Sapphire HD 6970 FleX Battlefield 3 Edition, I will say that none of the results are surprising or mind-blowing because we already knew what to expect. The Cayman architecture is no different than it was before, and the only thing we get with it are slightly higher out-of-the-box speeds and a superior cooler. No raw performance gains were expected and none were seen. In fact, in every framerate test that was run, both this Sapphire HD 6970 and the comparison HD 6970 stayed within a few frames per second, or about 5% ahead or behind. The advantage lies in the higher stock clock speed, in which case this Sapphire HD 6970 generally had a slight edge."

Samsung SyncMaster 27A850D 27-inch PLS Monitor Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Fri, Nov 25 2011 | 9:06A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung`s new 27A850D is a unique 27 2560 x 1440 monitor that bridges the gap between high priced 30 products and the lower quality, less expensive 1080P panels that have cluttered the market. They have achieved a balance between price and image quality by using a proprietary PLS panel technology, something we haven`t seen outside of tablets."

Lian Li PC-TU200 Mini-ITX Chassis Review
     Fri, Nov 25 2011 | 9:04A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are looking at a new chassis from Lian Li that has been nicknamed the Adventurer on the packaging. The actual naming of this all aluminum chassis is the PC-TU200 Mini Tower chassis. As with the cases that used to house our remote nuclear launch capability, or even thinking back to my musically inclined days, a lot of the electronics shipped from gig to gig in cases much like this. The rugged look of reinforced corners with aluminum plates riveted to the frame over the sides of the case for added protection against any accidental abuse this case may encounter in its travels. Taking this one step further, the PC-TU200 has a large comfortable metal handle on the top as to not only fully support the weight of its contents, but also to make lugging it from place to place a breeze. With the idea of an industrial aluminum briefcase in mind, let`s look and see just what Lian Li has inside and out of their Adventurer."

Asus WL-330N3G 6-IN-1 Wireless-N Travel Router Review @ Tweaknews
     Fri, Nov 25 2011 | 9:04A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Leave it to Asus to create a router that can also act as a repeater, access point, Ethernet adapter, hotspot, and 3G sharing device. While that versatility is great on its own, add in the fact that this device will fit in your pocket and that makes it a truly exciting product for users on the go. The price of $69.99 for all of this is well worth it and Asus makes setup as easy as possible with their intuitive web interface."

Corsair Vengeance PC3-15000 16GB Kit Review
     Fri, Nov 25 2011 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The other day we looked at the new Corsair Dominator GTX8 8GB kit and we found ourselves really impressed with what Corsair was offering us. The problem with this kit is that to achieve 2400MHz DDR, you need a CPU that`s able to offer that kind of speed and as we mentioned in that review, out of the three 3960X CPUs we had, only one could achieve this speed with the other two maxing out around the 2300MHz DDR area. The Dominator GTX8 kit is also a really high end one; the massive amount of speed comes at the cost of only having a total of 8GB. While plenty for most, the introduction of Quad Channel will bring with it 16GB as the standard amount of RAM for most people. Also being part of the GTX line means that it`s got a higher cost and is of course only on a limited run."

OCZ ZT Series 550W Power Supply Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Nov 25 2011 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ZT Series is found within OCZ`s High Performance category and is significant due to its fully modular cabling system. Most PSUs that name themselves modular refer to a certain group of cables that are removable but the ZT boasts a completely modular configuration - even the motherboard ATX cable is detachable. The ZT series adopts 80 Plus Bronze certification and is available in following variants 550W, 650W, and 750W. Today we will be taking a look at the first model and lowest rated wattage - 550W. Ideal for those who are looking to build a gaming system with a powerful graphics card and typical assortment of drives and devices."

Core i7 3960X with 4-Way CrossFireX HD 6970 Performance Analysis
     Fri, Nov 25 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s been ages since we`ve tested 4-Way CrossFireX actually. Recently we did a bit of 3-Way CrossFireX action with the introduction of the Bulldozer and Sandy Bridge-E platform, but apart from that there hasn`t been any real reason lately to expand from those numbers; that along with the fact that most boards support only up to three cards. The introduction of the new high end platform from Intel means that we`re starting to see 4-Way boards hit and our new X79 testbed which finds itself graced with the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme supports four way CrossFireX and SLI."

Exclusive: Gigabyte GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3 pictures
     Fri, Nov 25 2011 | 7:11A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`re now merely days from the Z68 chipset launch which will officially take place on the 11th, but the leaks keep on coming and we can now as first publication show a couple of pictures of Gigabyte`s upcoming mATX Z68 board, the GA-Z68MX-UD2H-B3. The board is actually quite unusual for a mATX board and it`s packed to the brim with features, in fact, we`d daresay that it`s one of Gigabyte`s best Z68 boards."

Kingwin Stryker STR-500 500W Fanless Power Supply Review
     Fri, Nov 25 2011 | 12:29A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the best parts of covering hardware for computer enthusiasts is that there are so many different needs for enthusiasts. Usually when someone thinks of someone as being an enthusiast, they relate them with someone who has the fastest or most powerful equipment available. This isn`t necessarily the case, especially with what we are looking at today. HTPC enthusiasts often look for something that is small and unobtrusive, or something that is silent yet powerful. Silent and powerful is something that is hard to come by with a HTPC, especially since fanless power supplies are few and far between. Thankfully we now have another option thanks to Kingwin launching their Stryker Fanless series. Today we are going to take a look at the 500W model. It boasts quite a few features that will allow it to fulfill a variety of roles and should also appeal to a wide customer base. Not only is the Stryker series a fanless power supply, but it also comes with enough connectors to power multi-GPU systems and has an 80Plus Platinum efficiency rating. Keep reading to find out more about Kingwin`s latest."

HTL Tests out New YouTube 3D Vision Playback Capability @Hi Tech Legion
     Thu, Nov 24 2011 | 10:18P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA 3D Vision playback in YouTube is made possible through HTML5 implementation. NVIDIA 3D Vision playback on 3D Vision Live is different in that it uses a Microsoft Silverlight plug-in to stream stereoscopic 3D content. With an HTML5 compliant browser and an NVIDIA GPU with the latest GeForce drivers (version 275 or higher), users can now share 3D content and enjoy over 6,000 stereoscopic 3D videos on the world`s most popular user-generated video website. Through NVIDIA 3DTV Play software, users can also now enjoy fullscreen 3D videos in the comfort of their living room in front of a big screen 3DTV or their 3D-capable home theater projector."
