Six SSDs in RAID 0: Intel vs AMD - which chipset scales the best?
     Sat, May 12 2012 | 12:03P | Chipset | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not very long ago it would have been a pipe dream for normal computer users to have multiple solid state drives in a RAID 0 configuration to achieve even higher read and write speeds. The recent price drop may conjure up feelings of the old days that our older readers probably remember, when hard drive storage was very expensive, but became increasingly more affordable. At any rate, buying more than one SSD has become more realistic now. And who says you need to stop at two drives? Hardware.Info tested RAID 0 configurations with up to six SSDs on both the Intel Z77 and the AMD SB950 chipsets to find out how the performance scales when you add more SSDs and which platform offers the best performance. Armed with six OCZ Vertex 4 128 GB SSDs we began our investigation.

Intel Z77 'Panther Point' Chipset Overview
     Mon, Apr 30 2012 | 9:02A | Chipset | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Continuing its tick-tock release cycle, Intel plans to unveil a new CPU microarchitecture at the end of April. Codenamed Ivy Bridge (tick), the update will bring a 22nm die shrink of current 32nm Sandy Bridge technology (tock), bringing greater efficiency and allowing Intel to cram more into the same size die. Although backwards compatibility with 6-series motherboards will be available, Intel couldn't resist the opportunity to accompany its latest architecture with a fresh round of chipsets. Codenamed "Panther Point," the new 7-series chipsets include half a dozen parts, with the Z77 being Intel's new flagship.

VID-2X eliminates the need for special hardware
     Tue, Mar 13 2012 | 9:01A | Chipset | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphire's VID-2X is a simple and cost effective way to output a single video signal to two displays, eliminating the need for special hardware or software. At first glance, its application may seem limited as most graphics cards nowadays already feature more than one display output. Good thing then that the VID-2X supports a variety of other devices through USB, including notebooks and tablets. See how well the VID-2X performs in our review!
