EVGA Taiwan Office Visit 2012
     Sat, Jun 16 2012 | 9:03A | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As hardware enthusiasts we strive to complete our "collection". Sometimes that collection leads to a closet full of old hardware while for others that is simply the perfect combo of components to build a monster machine. EVGA enthusiasts tend to exploit the second of these as can be seen within the EVGA community.

Sandy Bridge for servers: Intel Xeon E5-2600 review
     Sat, Jun 16 2012 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a maximum of eight cores, 256-bit AVX instructions, quad-channel memory and integrated PCI-Express 3.0 I/O connections, Intel has significantly improved its dual-socket server platform. Whether workloads benefit more from pure processing power, fast memory communication or faster I/O, the new Sandy Bridge architecture has clear advantages in all areas compared to Intel's previous server platform. This is reflected by the test results. For example, with HPC applications we saw performance gains of a couple dozen percent. The database benchmark showed an improvement of 36 percent compared to the previous generation. The performance-per-watt has also increased according to the results, both in tests focusing on pure CPU power and the database benchmarks that take advantage more of memory bandwidth.

Thunderbolt on Windows with Asus, Intel and Promise
     Sat, Jun 16 2012 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's Light Peak technology eventually matured into what now is known in the market as Thunderbolt, which debuted initially as an Apple I/O exclusive last year. As we mentioned in our IDF coverage a few years ago, Light Peak was being developed by Intel in collaboration with Apple. So it wasn't a huge surprise that Apple got an early exclusivity agreement, but there were actually a number of other partners on board as well, including Aja, Apogee, Avid, Blackmagic, LaCie, Promise and Western Digital. Thunderbolt has been available on some Apple systems for over a year now and it’s been met with mostly positive results. There are also a handful of Thunderbolt compatible devices already on the market thanks to Apple’s head-start, from the likes of Promise, Lacie, WD and others. On the Windows front, however, Thunderbolt is still in its infancy and there are still a few bugs to work out of systems and solutions. To test Thunderbolt under Windows, we got our hands on a couple of high-end motherboards that have the technology built-in, Intel's DZ77RE-75K and the Asus P8Z77-V Premium, along with a Thunderbolt-enabled Direct Attached Storage RAID system from Promise.

Posted by: STAFF
In 2009, Cooler Master kick started their division of gaming-grade peripherals, CM Storm, with the first Sentinel Advance mouse.

Samsung WB750 12.5 Megapixel BSI CMOS Sensor Wide-Angle Digital Camera Review @ ModSynergy.com
     Fri, Jun 15 2012 | 9:05A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Astonishingly it`s been two full years since a Samsung digital camera had made its way into my hands for review. A number of Samsung imaging products have been reviewed on ModSynergy, from small digital cameras to DSLR-hybrids, and each time I could not help but observe the continued incremental growth from Samsung in regard to their picture and video quality. Today I share my opinion on the newest Samsung WB750 super-zoom digital camera. The WB750 contains 12.5-megapixels, 24mm ultra-wide Schneider-KREUZNACH lens, 18x optical zoom, 1080p full HD video, and operates on a BSI CMOS sensor. You always hear me speaking about sensors in my DSLR reviews, because they are an essential part of the overall camera, and this one sports a BSI variant (stands for back-illuminated sensor). I will compare and present to you the similarities, differences and possible improvements that the WB750 offers against the outgoing WB550 model and see if this one is worth your hard earned money."
