EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW LE 2GB Video Card Review @ circuitREMIX
     Sun, Dec 09 2012 | 10:55P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The video card from EVGA we`re looking at today is the GeForce GTX 670 FTW LE 2GB. To easily understand where it fits in EVGA`s lineup, it their entry level non-reference design offering that`s one step higher than the basic reference design. With the term FTW (for the win) in it`s name, you`d probably assume that this is one of EVGA`s higher end cards. You would be semi-right, as the FTW (and FTW SIG2) version are EVGA`s top 2GB GTX 670 products. It`s the LE suffix that denotes the lower end of the scale. To me, FTW LE is an oxymoron."

Call of Duty: Black Ops II Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Dec 09 2012 | 10:15P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Black Ops 2 is the latest chapter in the 1st person shooter spin-off from the Call of Duty franchise. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 is a continuation of the shadowy cold-war storyline introduced two years ago. Set in 2025 with narrative flashbacks to the early 80s that flesh out the character origins, Black Ops 2 expands upon the Call of Duty formula by introducing new nonlinear gameplay elements and alternate outcomes based on player choice. Also new is the use of DirectX 11 API to the Call of Duty game engine, bringing improved lighting, shadows, ambient occlusion, depth of field enhancements as well as a more GPU optimal performance unlike the first Black Ops title which ran on DirectX 9. Call of Duty: Black Ops II is also compatible with NVIDIA`s 3D Vision stereoscopic 3D gameplay and carries a performance rating of good for the campaign mode while the zombie and multiplayer modes are rated Excellent with the latest GeForce 310.70 drivers."

PC News: Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Carbon Ultrabook Review and SSD Performance Analysis
     Sun, Dec 09 2012 | 7:16P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It might seem a bit odd displaying the X1 in such a fashion for our opening shot, however, this ranks high in the list of unique qualties of the Lenovo Carbon X1. In fact, if you are like I and spend a great many hours on the road typing articles in the passenger seat of a vehicle with the X1 resting on your knees, this characteristic alone is enough to make one seriously consider this purchase. Add on the lightning speed of the SSD and it becomes a no brainer."

Tech News: Cooler Master Storm Recon & Skorpion Review
     Sun, Dec 09 2012 | 2:47P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master has not exactly been idle in creating gaming accessories, or indeed anything that does not have to do with computer chassis. On the contrary actually, they have released solid products before, but not with a lot of diversity. A gaming mouse here, a notebook cooler there - but no real concrete line to create a path on. It seems as if the designers were waiting on how their initial products into the gaming market would do before expanding on them, but it is safe (and obvious) to say that because of this they remained relatively silent when compared to companies that make a name off of the gaming market, such as Razer, Logitech, and SteelSeries."

Tech News: Cooler Master NotePal I300 Review
     Sun, Dec 09 2012 | 2:45P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Staying true to its name, Cooler Master has released their newest laptop cooling pad - The NotePal I300. Offering flavours across every conceivable notebook size, the I300 has a lot to live up to. Taking a look at Cooler Master`s website, it is astounding the amount of laptop coolers on display; from less than 12 and greater than 17, Cooler Master has no less than 15 per category. The primary point to take away is that there is a cooling option for virtually every type of consumer, and ergonomic to boot. Some are expensive, some are budget-friendly, and some are even fully universal."

TECH NEWS: X-Mini 1.1 Capsule Speaker Review - Big Things Come In Small Packages
     Sun, Dec 09 2012 | 2:42P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Mono X-Mini Capsule Speakers have been out for a while and the holidays are once again upon us. Personally I believe these still make the perfect stocking-stuffers and pair nicely with any MP3 player/tablet. Don`t let the tiny size fool you; they only measure 52 x 42mm closed. The X-Mini capsule speaker is small but sturdy, with a weight of only 57.4 grams.and is astoundingly very capable of producing exceptional sounds. The X-Mini`s certainly are well worth the very modest price of roughly $25, and are available in black, grey, red, and pink colors. I take these with me everywhere I go and still get questions about the speakers from people of all ages, those usually being along the lines of where I bought them from, the price, and if they are still available!"

SSD News: Kingston SSDNow V300 SSD Review - A Great Mix of Toshiba 19nm Memory and the SF-2281 FSP
     Sun, Dec 09 2012 | 2:08P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today`s SSD analysis takes a look at a new SSD to the market, this being the Kingston SSDNow V300 SATA 3 SSD. The V300 is a unique Kingston SSD introduction as it is their first product using the new Toshiba 19nm NAND flash memory process, but also, this SSD is `SandForce Driven by LSI` and a key example of the success that can be had when two companies work closely together. It is no secret that the established `best practice` with respect to consumer SSDs has become that of `more for less`. Getting more value, and potentially more capacity, to the consumer is key and manufacturers are finding ways to do this using memory that has a smaller overall footprint. The Kingston V300 seems to be an ideal example of this value, at least on the outside, so let`s take a closer look at where technology seems to be heading."

[Tech ARP] BIOS Option Of The Week - DRAM Burst Length 8QW
     Sat, Dec 08 2012 | 9:59A | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend. This week, we will be taking a look at the *DRAM Burst Length 8QW* setting."
