BIOS Option Of The Week - Virtualization Technology.
     Tue, Dec 08 2015 | 4:01P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meagre beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend.

Scott Wasson of TechReport retires from post, joins AMD
     Thu, Dec 03 2015 | 1:21P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

"Sixteen years ago, we fired up a modest web server session and began posting news items about the latest in PC tech and gaming. Over time, that little fly-by-night endeavor grew to become something bigger and better than anything we could anticipate—a full-time job for a number of very sharp people and a publication that produced some of the finest in-depth articles and reviews in the PC hardware space.

Some months ago, I got a phone call from Raja Koduri, who heads up the newly formed Radeon Technologies Group at AMD. Raja asked me if I'd be interested in coming to work at AMD... ...I will be joining AMD in my new role. As a result, I'll be stepping down as Editor-in-Chief of The Tech Report."

just PC hardware and mobile devices
     Tue, Dec 01 2015 | 9:03A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The entire team here at HotHardware has been plugged into the tech scene for ages. In fact, we’ve been doing our thing here on-line for close to two decades. And if there’s one thing we’ve learned about our readers in all that time, it’s that their affinity for technology and gadgets goes way beyond just PC hardware and mobile devices. Well, we here on staff feel the same way too, so we thought it’d be fun to give you all a little insight into our lives and talk about some of the latest gear we’d all like to get our hands on this holiday season...

data carrier is as slow as a geriatric sloth
     Fri, Oct 23 2015 | 9:00A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Anyone who’s ever had to use a memory card knows the feeling: you get a great bargain on a megakazillionbyte card, but in use it turns out your new stamp sized Library of Congress sized data carrier is as slow as a geriatric sloth, making your superfast DSLR feel as snappy as a slow motion re-run of a fifties shopping channel. If only you had been able to find a proper test of a large selection of memory cards before you went and bought one. Well, now there is: we tested 44 of these little bits of plastic and silicon in order to tell everyone who’s interested which are the fastest, the slowest and the ones with the best price/performance ratio.

History of the Personal Computer, Part 3
     Mon, Sep 21 2015 | 4:03P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
IBM's stature guaranteed the PC to initiate a level of standardization required for a technology to attain widespread usage. That same stature also ensured competitors would have unfettered access to the technical specifications of the Model 5150. This is the third installment in a five part series, where we look at the history of the microprocessor and personal computing, from the invention of the transistor to modern day chips powering our connected devices.

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.
