Logitech Z906 Speaker System Review
     Wed, Jun 22 2011 | 4:33P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It doesn't matter how hard your earphones pound your eardrums with cranium shaking noise, you can't truly call yourself a power user unless you're ticking off the neighbors and scaring the hell out of the dog with a surround sound setup that rattles the walls and punches copious amounts of bass. Without it, you might as well give your man-card away to someone who plans on fulfilling the requirements for membership in an illustrious club that demands everything be over the top. Logitech's famed Z-5500 system fit the bill, and there are many who consider it to be the king of multimedia speakers. But a king's reign can only last so long before either being usurped, or passing the torch to a successor. In this case, it's the latter, with Logitech's new Z906 speaker system stepping up to the throne as the company's new flagship speaker-set...

G.Skill Highlights Phoenix II Pro SandForce Driven SSD
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the most active displays we saw at Computex was that belonging to G.Skill and you just might see the reason why below. We had a job to do though and were there to take a look at their Phoenix II Pro SSD which should be released in the very near future. The Phoenix II Pro is another of the many 'SandForce Driven' SATA 3 SSDs we had the opportunity to check out and, as always, these drives just rock for storage transfer speeds. The Phoenix II Pro SSD will be available in capacities of 120 and 240GB and their specifications list transfer speeds up to 550MB/s read and 510MB/s write with 60, 000 IOPS at 4k random write. Having taken a close look at this SSD at Computex, we can say that their transfer speeds reached 559MB/s read and 518MB/s write but, even better, their small 4k randoms on Crystal Diskmark were up to 99MB/s which is an absolutely amazing result.

Intel`s Gallium3D Driver After Google`s Work
     Sat, Jun 11 2011 | 10:51P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As noted last week on Phoronix, Google has Chromium OS engineers making improvements to Intel`s Gallium3D driver even though this open-source Linux driver isn`t officially supported by Intel Corp. Google`s interested in shipping the Intel Gallium3D driver on their Chromium OS netbooks in order to take advantage of the Low-Level Virtual Machine (LLVM) and other Gallium3D features to make up for the netbook`s lack of vertex shader hardware. How does this community-maintained Intel 3D driver now compare performance-wise to Intel`s official classic Mesa driver? Here is a fresh set of benchmarks from the latest Mesa Git code over the US holiday weekend.""

"After recently tracking down the major Linux kernel power regression that`s present for a vast number of mobile users in Fedora 15, Ubuntu 11.04, and other recent Linux distributions shipping the 2.6.38+ kernel, the sights were turned to see how the power management of Ubuntu 11.04 compares to that of Windows 7 Professional Service Pack 1.

More Linux Benchmarks Of The AMD A8-3500M Fusion APU

"Earlier this week we delivered launch-day Linux benchmarks of the AMD A8-3500M ""Llano"" Fusion APU. The results for this next-generation, quad-core Fusion chip were impressive with the graphics and compute power being several times faster than the common AMD E-350 Fusion APU. In that article we just had two other systems the A8-3500M performance was being compared to, but here are some more Linux benchmarks comparing Llano to other systems running Ubuntu 11.04.""

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.
