RAGE Performance and Image Quality Evaluation - Day 1
     Sat, Nov 19 2011 | 2:17A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That`s all you get PC gamers - a setting for antialiasing and a resolution option. What happens to everything else? It is all adjusted automatically by the game engine on-the-fly depending on the hardware it sits on with the sole goal of hitting that 60 FPS mark. So to be clear, the RAGE engine is built in a way that it will target 60 FPS and will adjust image quality accordingly."

Battlefield 3 Beta Performance Testing and Image Quality Evaluation - Day 1
     Fri, Nov 18 2011 | 9:14P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Both NVIDIA and AMD are going to love what Battlefield 3 does for their sales - and what it might have done already. I have gotten more emails and questions on our podcast as well as TWICH (This Week in Computer Hardware) about upgrades for BF3 in the last 3 months than I can remember so I know it is a hot topic for the gaming community. Based on my initial performance evaluation it seems that the worries were at least somewhat warranted - a GTX 560 Ti, currently selling for about $220, doesn`t quite cut it at Ultra quality settings in my book."

CryoPC Alto HTPC Review - XSReviews
     Fri, Nov 18 2011 | 6:33P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Media PCs and media centres are becoming more and more common, especially with people losing a little faith in their stalwart desktop system. Today I`m looking at a rig from Cryo PC that looks to bridge the gap between traditional desktop and media centre, offering decent performance in a lounge setting, with some media features thrown in for good measure. I give you the Alto. Because testing a system can take quite a while, this review is being split into two parts. This first one will focus on raw performance and synthetic testing, while Part 2 will be more gaming and subjective in nature."

While the majority of people will run their systems with full size keyboards there are others who want something a bit smaller. Perhaps you have a media PC, or you`re low on space? Enermax have a mini wireless version of their Aurora. Its brushed aluminium and has a roller ball mouse system. Let`s see how it performs."

Cooler Master Storm Trooper Full-tower Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Fri, Nov 18 2011 | 5:04P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The CM Storm Trooper is a full-tower case that is designed with enthusiasts in mind. The CM Storm Trooper has a rubberized exterior coating that can withstand scratches and scrapes that will damage the average PC chassis. For portability, the CM Storm Trooper is also outfitted with a heavy duty carrying handle which can lift up to 95 lbs. Gamers with multiple video cards will also be glad to hear that the CM Storm Trooper can fit up to four video cards in Quad-SLI or Quad-CrossFireX mode with its 9 + 1 PCI-E expansion slots. Water cooling enthusiasts also have plenty of options to mount multiple radiators to the top, front or side of the CM Storm Trooper.

Enermax NAXN 650W Power Supply Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Fri, Nov 18 2011 | 5:04P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Enermax NAXN 650W power supply is amongst their most recent releases. The NAXN 650W is geared towards the average users, or budget gamers, that want to maintain excellent quality, while keeping costs low. The NAXN 650W power supply features an 80 Plus Bronze rating, meaning that can keep a 82-88% efficiency at 20-100% load. The NAXN is ErP Lot 6 2010 ready. This is a specification that can keep power draw to < 1W when running in standby mode. Most non compliant systems will run at around 4W. Built in is what Enermax labels HeatGuard. This keeps the fan running 30-60 seconds past shut down to ensure total heat dissipation. The NAXN has a silent 12cm fan for air movement and an AirGuard design to reduce noisy turbulence. / /*"

DDR3 Memory Performance Analysis on Intel X79 @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Nov 18 2011 | 4:34P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We started out running a single module at 1333MHz and then another module at a time to test dual channel, triple channel and finally quad channel. The Intel X79 chipet on the Intel SX79SI motherboard was able to properly run each memory configuration. The benchmark results in Sandra 2012 were very impressive in the sense that the benchmark results were nearly linear when moving from single channel to triple channel memory. Adding the fourth module for quad channel performance showed..."

ECS HDC-I Fusion Mini ITX Motherboard Review
     Fri, Nov 18 2011 | 4:11P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ECS is taking complete advantage of the feature sets associated with the Brazos platform in the HDC-I and keeping this board at a price point that consumers can afford. These mini ITX boards provide great performance and low power consumption, which makes it a very tempting option for tweeners who don`t want to jump to a micro ATX or ATX setup. Consumers get the best of both worlds with the HDC-I if they are looking for a entry-level mainboard for their next home theater PC."

EnGenius ESR-9850 Wireless Router @ TechwareLabs
     Fri, Nov 18 2011 | 2:28P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Shopping for a wireless router can be a bit of a crapshoot at times; every last one promises you the world, and problems can crop up with alarming frequency. Wading into this sea of uncertainty is a relatively unknown manufactuer, EnGenius. Their history is more with telephony than with networking gear, but this latest router they`ve sent us, the ESR-9850, shows some promise. Let`s see if it can hold up when it counts."

Fractal Design CORE 3000 @ techPowerUp

Posted by: STAFF
With the CORE family of cases, Fractal Design is aiming for the budget market, trying to offer as many of their unique features as possible for a leaner price tag. We take the chassis for a spin to see if the Fractal Design gene is still present or the splicing has gone too far."

Razer BlackWidow Ultimate Mechanical Keyboard Review - Mechanically superior? Just mechanical?
     Fri, Nov 18 2011 | 11:07A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
No-one can ultimately make the decision for you; it is still up to you to make the purchase based on your personal preferences and needs. If you have a local small-business computer store which has a demo model of the Razer BlackWidow then definitely experience how it feels to the touch. While you are there be sure to check out the SteelSeries 6Gv2 keyboard to feel the difference between the blue and the black switches since if gaming is your priority you may prefer the latter switch whether or not on that keyboard (sorry SteelSeries!)"

UEFI ? Just How Important It Really Is @ Hardware Secrets
     Fri, Nov 18 2011 | 10:51A | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This article delves into the new UEFI architecture and why it is much more important to the computer world than you think. Computer hardware has evolved a great deal in the past few decades. Graphics cards and sound cards are providing life-like graphics and theater quality sound, terabyte size spindle hard drives are being paired with blazing fast SSD drives for limitless storage for the common user, while huge quantities of RAM and CPUs are providing six- (soon eight-) cores for incredible multi-tasking capabilities. Rounding out all that hardware is the motherboard, the backbone of your system. "

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
