The best bit, the disclaimer on the website which reads "Must be 107cm (3'6") tall to ride." Do you have the guts to do this? Let PCSTATS know!

Quakecon 2011 today at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas
     Fri, Aug 05 2011 | 4:21P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When questioned about his interest in voxel based engines, John surprised a few of us with his answer. Apparently he has written several voxel based engines over the years, often right after some of their major gaming releases. The infinite detail that voxels can address is obviously of great interest, but he feels that even with current (and fast) hardware it is still inferior in many ways to current polygon/raster based rendering."

GIGABYTE - A75 OC Challenge - on HWBOT
     Fri, Aug 05 2011 | 2:48P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

www.pcstats.comGIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co., Ltd, a leading manufacturer of motherboards, graphics cards and other computing hardware solutions today announced a new overclocking competition in conjunction with HWBOT.org called the “A75 OC Challenge” during the month of August.

Since the recent launch of the world’s first APU (Accelerated Processing Unit) from AMD, there has been a lot of benching going on to see if AMD really has created an onboard graphics solution that can compete head-to-head with the lower end discrete market. But many are asking the age-old question, “will it blend”? No, wait a second...we really don’t suggest trying that. The real question is will it overclock? During the month of August, GIGABYTE would like you guys to answer that for us. So, using any GIGABYTE A75 motherboard (learn all about them HERE), submit your best scores for each of the 5 stages using only the APU graphics…ie., no discrete graphics cards allowed. Since HWBOT is hosting, HWBOT rules apply. The first place winner gets a 990FXA-UD5 and second and third place each get a E350N-USB3. Good luck everyone!

Stage 1: 3Dmark 11 P (Preset)
Stage 2: 3Dmark Vantage P (Preset)
Stage 3: PCMARK 7
Stage 4: Unique Heaven DX11
Stage 5: UCBench2011

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.
