Aerocool Strike-X One PC Tower @ Pro-Clockers
     Thu, Jun 28 2012 | 9:21A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Next, we will be taking a look at Strike-X?s value gaming tower which is simply labeled Strike-X One. To begin what we like about the One case is that it is set in a price range that many companies are not pricing their product even though it where it should be. At $60, the case a decent amount of features and doesn?t have the hardcore Strike-X theme of the GT chassis we reviewed."

A Futurelooks News Flash - Reviewing the NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 Experience Featuring the ASUS VG278H 120Hz LCD Monitor 3D Bundle

Posted by: STAFF
Reviewing the NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 Experience Featuring the ASUS VG278H 120Hz LCD Monitor 3D Bundle* * * Even though NVIDIA 3D Vision ushered in a new age visual experience, I only vaguely remember it simply because there were limited games that offered a really great 3D experience. Not to mention, ill fitting 3D Vision glasses and flicker issues didnt win many over. However, 3D technology has come a long way and enthusiasts are revelling in the Fermi and new Kepler architectures that give smooth frame rates and monitor manufacturers have stepped up with better products. With 3D Vision 2 available, there are many advancements that have made the technology totally viable (and fun) for every day gaming and use. Today we check out the combo that launched 3D Vision 2, the ASUS VG278H LED 3D Monitor and NVIDIA 3D Vision 2 Bundle! *"

Crucial Adrenaline Caching SSD Review
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 4:56P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Solid State drives are now a common storage option among the population, due to their now affordable prices, which instantly made them go mainstream. However single unit SSD’s are still storage devices they often do not attract a lot of users because they don’t offer a high amount of storage capacity without that price tag jumping to infinity. This is where SSD caching drives really come into their own in that in-between market.

Live Video Recap: AMD Llano Blindfolded PC Build
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In all, it took me 1 hour and 18 minutes to get to a Windows screen using a pre-installed OS on a Western Digital 1TB hard drive. That was MUCH longer than I had originally thought it would take, so I have been humbled by those DIY PC users that build their own on without sight a regular basis!"

Max Payne 3 Gaming and 3D Vision
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 2:13P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Max Payne 3 is the latest chapter in the 3rd person shooter title which debuted over 11 years ago for the PC. Max Payne is now living thousands of miles away from the grit and grim of New York and working in private security detail for a power Brazilian family in Sao Paolo. It is not all sunshine, beaches, and babes in bikinis for Max however, as he finds himself in the middle of a sprawling conspiracy involving all manner of Brazilian scum from the crevices of the Favela, the swampland militias as well as the ivory tower of ambitious politicians who would stop at nothing to add a few more zeroes to their paycheck. Max Payne 3 for the PC boasts detailed DirectX11 graphics and resurrects the "bullet time" gameplay everyone enjoyed in the original title that debuted over a decade ago now."

OCZ Vertex 4 256GB - faster than greased HDDs?
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 2:12P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“About a year or so ago, OCZ bought Indilinx planning to develop their own proprietary controller, and we've been waiting to see the results. First came the "Indilinx-Infused" Everest 1 controller on the OCZ Octane, and it was impressive but not entirely reality-altering. Maybe we're curmedgeons but we wanted more. And now OCZ has the Vertex 4, featuring the newest Everest 2 controller, promising enthusiast-classed performance to battle the SandForce drives.”

Netgear ReadyNAS Duo V2: Fast and affordable
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 2:11P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A read speed of more than 90 MB/s, a solid metal case, room for two drives and even USB 3.0? It sounds like a fairly expensive NAS, but in the case of the ReadyNAS Duo V2 it's actually not too pricy. First we'd like to commend Netgear for giving this entry-level model such a professional high-end look. The NAS sits in a solid, metal chassis, with a front panel behind which the metal trays for the disks are located. Based on ARM hardware, this Netgear ReadyNAS performs really well.

In Win Mana 137 Mid Tower Case Review
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 2:11P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In Win is a company known for its unique style of cases, but today we’ll be looking at a rather non-stylish case by the company. It offers two USB 3.0 ports and even supports up to two SSD’s, in addition to the six 3.5” drive bays. Keeping this case simple helps keep bring down the price of the case, but will this drop in style equal a drop in overall quality? Read on further to find out."

AMD Catalyst 12.7 Beta, Best AMD driver ever
     Wed, Jun 27 2012 | 2:10P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We found out that there were 2 different drivers from june 12 that popped out on the web. The first ones we tested were the Catalyst 12.x Unofficial Beta labeled 9.000.0 on now comes the Catalyst 12.7 Beta version 8.981.2. We were a bit disappointed by the 9.000.0 even if there had the best performance ratio a glitch in performance was present under Dragon Age II. Are the 12.7 Beta better ? Will there be the same performance glitch or even more ? Let's see which is da best driver for the Radeon HD 7970!
