Intel to launch Haswell Refresh CPUs and 9-series chipsets in early May
     Thu, Apr 10 2014 | 1:43P | Chipset | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel is set to launch its new Haswell Refresh processors and 9-series chipsets for desktops in early May, postponing the CPU giant's original schedule from April, according to sources from motherboard players. Intel originally planned to release the CPUs in April and then distribute the chipsets in May, but after feedback from motherboard clients and channel retail partners, Intel decided to delay the CPU launch and release the two together in May. Motherboard players including Asustek Computer and Gigabyte Technology have already geared up to release new products. Asustek shipped five million motherboards and Gigabyte 5.2 million in the first quarter, and with Haswell Refresh and the 9-series, market watchers expect their shipments to grow 10% sequentially in the second quarter.

Fractal Design Arc XL Full Tower Chassis Review
     Mon, Mar 31 2014 | 9:03A | Chipset | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fractal Design are one of the coolest component manufacturers around and over the years they’ve gone on to win countless awards for their chassis, power supplies and fans. I’ve seen a fair few Fractal Design products in the eTeknix office and I’ve never been anything less than stunned at their flawless design and rock solid build quality. This is especially true of the Arc chassis series and the one I’ll be taking a look at today is supposed to be the biggest and best one yet. The Arc XL offers solutions for the extreme end of the PC market and with its large size and high specifications comes an equally high price tag of just over £100 here in the UK and around $130 in the US. This is obviously not targeted at your average consumer, but at this price we’ll be expecting high build quality and plenty of features to justify the investment. As you can see from the specification below, there isn’t much the Arc XL can’t handle, with support for all major motherboard form factors including Mini-ITX all the way up to XL-ATX, plenty of room for 5.25? drives or similar devices, loads of room for hard drives with 8 storage bays that can hold either 3.5? or 2.5? drives, as well as two stealth mounts for 2.5? drives behinds the motherboard.

Benchmarking Amazon's New EC2 "C3" Instance Types
     Wed, Nov 20 2013 | 3:29P | Chipset | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD unveiled the Radeon R9 290 graphics card at the beginning of November as one step down from the new flagship Radeon R9 290X graphics card. Numerous Windows reviews praised the graphics card for its great performance, but what wasn't clear at the time was how the Linux performance and compatibility was for this new $399 USD graphics card. AMD hadn't offered any review samples to Phoronix for conducting any Linux-based testing and benchmarking, but it's more clear now why that didn't happen: the Linux performance isn't stellar. I bought an XFX Radeon R9 290 and now there's many Linux benchmarks coming out of this graphics card that's riddled by what might be driver issues. I already regret having purchased the AMD Radeon R9 290 for use on Linux; the graphics card is hot, power hungry, noisy, and the OpenGL results aren't too good."
