Club 3D HD 7870 jokerCard Tahiti LE 2 GB @ techPowerUp
     Fri, Dec 07 2012 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Club3D is first to release a Tahiti LE based HD 7870. Their jokerCard runs 1536 shaders with very decent clock speeds, which results in an 8% performance improvement over HD 7870, just 2% shy of matching HD 7950. This performance increase does come at the cost of increased power draw though."

Samsung Flip Cover for Galaxy S III and Note II Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Dec 07 2012 | 10:58A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After you use the Samsung Flip Covers for several days you quickly used to them and flipping the cover open, so it wasn`t annoying or a major nuisance. The best part about the Samsung Flip Covers is that you do not have to worry about scratches when you slip the phone into your pocket and it adds very little thickness to the phone. The worst part of the covers is that it does pretty much nothing in terms of drop protection..."

Silicon Power Armor A80 1TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive Review
     Fri, Dec 07 2012 | 10:27A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
VDSL (Very-high-bit-rate digital subscriber line) finally landed where i live and although it will take quite some time before we can all enjoy the amazing speeds it offers (although we still don`t know what the end result will be) such speeds are bound to change things especially in everything related to storage media. We are well aware that VDSL is nothing new in several parts of the world but the majority of people hardly have DSL lines currently so you can imagine how rapidly things will change when everyone on the face of the planet jumps from regular DSL 24Mbit/s speeds to the 50-100Mbit/s offered by VDSL and VDSL2. This is also one of the reasons as to why we`ve focused in testing portable hard disk drives lately (we need to be ready for the change) and today we have yet another one, the Armor A80 1TB 2.5 USB 3.0 PHD from Silicon Power."

SilverStone SUGO SST-SG09 MicroATX Chassis @ Benchmark Reviews
     Thu, Dec 06 2012 | 11:48P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As more enthusiasts discover that they really don`t need seven or eight slots in a standard ATX motherboard, the popularity of Micro ATX and Mini ITX rigs is exploding. Formerly constrained to HTPC or light home server duty, small form factor systems are now becoming the province of enthusiasts, aided by motherboards and cases designed to support the power and air flow required to house the higher-end components such systems require. The latest performance-oriented Micro ATX case is Silverstone`s new SUGO SG09B, and since it`s from Silverstone, you might expect that it has some unique design features. You`d be right."

CM Storm QuickFire TK Keyboard Review
     Thu, Dec 06 2012 | 9:12P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the end, I honestly tried to love this keyboard. It`s mechanical, it has blue lighting, a blue steelplate and it`s of the usual CM Storm durability. It is everything most of you can agree make up a great keyboard. That and my Razer Lycosa is losing keys - so it`s about time I actually switch into something else. Unfortunately that love couldn`t quite be forced. The toggle option to switch between the number pad and what are quite essential keys was frustrating. I guess it`s one of those things you don`t realize you use/enjoy until someone takes them away from you. At first I said, BAH, I don`t even use arrow keys, and my laptop doesn`t have a number pad - it can`t be bad. I was quite wrong about that."
