ASRock Z68 Pro3 Intel LGA 1155 Motherboard Review
     Mon, Jan 09 2012 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASRock Z68 Pro3 is the first Intel LGA1155 Sandy Bridge motherboard tested so far at ocinside.de. It is based on Intel's Z68 chipset and offers a very inexpensive solution for current 1155-Pin processors like e.g. the unlocked Intel Core i7-2600K, unlocked Core i5-2500K with which we have tested the motherboard, Intel Core i3-2120, i3-2100 or Intel Pentium Q850, Q840, G620 and more LGA1155 processors. The equipment is relatively basic, but it offers some settings for overclocking and a lot of more features like e.g. integrated fan control, new UEFI BIOS and Lucid Virtu support, which we have tested also in this review.

Intel Z68 Express with Smart Response Technology:
     Wed, Jan 04 2012 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you look back to our coverage of the Sandy Bridge launch, we tested the two premiere chipsets in the 6-series, the enthusiast-targeted P67 and mainstream H67. Fundamentally, the two chipsets were very similar (and are based on the same piece of silicon), but each had a specific feature set designed for its target audience. For example, the P67 offered CPU and memory overclocking and increased power and current limits, while the H67 gave users the ability to take advantage of Sandy Bridge’s built-in graphics and Quick Sync media-encoding engine. P67 users that wanted to take advantage of Quick Sync and H67 users looking to do some CPU overclocking were simply out of luck. With the Z68 Express, however, prospective Sandy Bridge users no longer need to compromise...

Android 3.0 Honeycomb-based netbook
     Wed, Jan 04 2012 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus Eee Pad Transformer tablet PC is one of the more interesting Android tablets on the market in that it has a keyboard docking station that essentially allows it to convert to an Android 3.0 Honeycomb-based netbook. Add to that a power dual core 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor and a reasonable MSRP of $399 (just the tablet, 16GB version) and the Transformer looks to be one of the best options currently for Android tablet solutions, for WiFi only solutions. We're prepping a full, detailed performance review here in the coming days but we thought it would be nice to offer a teaser with our video review and a cut from the benchmark suite of test numbers we're running.

     Tue, Jan 03 2012 | 4:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
TYAN, an industry-leading server platform manufacturer, and a subsidiary of MiTAC International Corp., announces new single-socket servers that support the Intel® Xeon® Processor E3-1200 series (codename: Sandy Bridge). The S5510 and S5512 motherboards are ideal as entry-level servers for both small business and enterprise server customers. For high-density datacenter applications such as web hosting, TYAN has launched the industry-leading FM65-B5511 Micro Server.

The FM65-B5511 supports up to 18 Intel® Xeon® processors in a 4U enclosure. The FM65-B5511 is based on the Micro Module Server Specification, which addresses the emerging server segment that features scale-out, single-processor nodes with higher density and lower power consumption for web services applications.

“TYAN now provides a great selection of single-processor server solutions with outstanding price/performance,” said TYAN Director of Product Marketing, Kevin Hart. “The TYAN S5510 and S5512 motherboards provide higher performance and lower power consumption, as compared to the previous generation, at about the same cost.”

The S5510 series is based on the Micro ATX form factor, and is available in two versions. The S5510GM3NR is a full-featured server platform based on Intel C204 chipset and features four PCI-E 2.0 x8 slots, six SATA ports with two at 6 Gb/s, three 1 G-bit network ports, and IPMI 2.0 support for out-of-band and remote management. The cost-effective S5510G2NR-LE is based on the Intel C202 chipset and features three PCI-E 2.0 x8 slots, six SATA ports at 3 Gb/s, and two 1 G-bit network ports.

The S5512 series is based on the ATX form factor and is available in four versions for rack-optimized server and small business applications. The S5512GM2NR is based on Intel C204 chipset and features five PCI-E 2.0 slots, six SATA ports with two at 6 Gb/s, two Intel 82574L Ethernet controllers, and a dedicated management port with IPMI 2.0 support.

The S5512WGM2NR provides the same features, and supports up to eight SAS ports via an integrated LSI 2008 SAS controller. The S5512GM4NR features four 1 G-bit network ports, as well as a dedicated management port, for a total of five network ports. A lower cost version is available, the S5512G2NR-LE, which features the Intel C202 chipset, four PCI-E 2.0 slots, six SATA ports at 3 Gb/s, and two 1 G-bit network ports.

The TYAN FM65-B5511 offers higher density and scalable performance with 18 removable front-loaded compute nodes, an integrated 1 G-bit or 10 G-bit switch module, and redundant (2+1) hot-swap power supplies. Each individual node supports a single Intel® Xeon® processor E3-1260L or -1220L, up to 32 GB of un-buffered ECC DDR3 memory, and two 2.5” SSD or HDD drives. Each node has two 1 G-bit network ports and features IPMI 2.0 support.

The TYAN S5510 and S5512 motherboards are available through TYAN distributors worldwide. The TYAN FM65-B5511 Micro Server will be available in late Q2 2011. OEM pricing is available upon request.

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.
