ASUS P8P67 Sandy Bridge LGA1155 ATX Motherboard Review
     Fri, Apr 08 2011 | 3:17A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Futurelooks checks out a great entry level P67 board that is anything but entry level ... *ASUS P8P67 Sandy Bridge LGA1155 ATX Motherboard Review* There are plenty of frugal computer owners out there looking to upgrade to a new Sandy Bridge system. But, they don?t want just any bland, boring motherboard. The cheaper the board, the more often the platform loses its visual appeal as well as features. However, there is one entry level P67 solution that is not stripped of cool features including dual PCIe 2.0 slots for AMD CrossfireX and looks good too. The ASUS P8P67 Sandy Bridge motherboard might very well be the best solution to pair with your single GTX 560 Ti or dual AMD HD 6870 video cards. * * *"

Boxee Box HD Media Player, Updated and Netflix Ready

Free flowing bandwidth; it's an enabler. There was a time when no one had cable modems or DSL lines. Remember that? Alright, fair enough, neither do we. Regardless, having a 10Mb+ data connection to your domicile is a thing of beauty, because there's obviously so much you can do with it. The question becomes not so much what the cable or telecom companies tell you, or sell to you, with respect to what you can do with it, but rather what a little imagination, and some optimized hardware and software can do with it. And that's exactly the premise by which service platforms like Roku, Apple TV, Google TV and Boxee were born, though Boxee was a bit of a pioneer in the space with the introduction of their cross-platform software in early 2010. Boxee touted their software as the first "Social Media Center," with the ability to rate content and share it with your friends across multiple portals like Facebook and Twitter...

Gateway DX4320-45

Posted by: STAFF
“The Gateway DX4320-45 exists as a middle child between the "lower end" small form factor (SFF) SX series, and the high-end gaming-oriented FX series. Like a stereotypical middle child, it's way too easy to look at this desktops shortcomings in comparison to its siblings, and that's the problem.”

LLVM 2.9 Clang Performance On Intel's Sandy Bridge
     Thu, Apr 07 2011 | 9:02A | Chipset | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Earlier this month benchmarks were published on Phoronix showing the GCC 4.6 compiler performance with AVX support under Intel's new Sandy Bridge processors that are the first to provide Advanced Vector Extensions support. The Core i5 2500K CPU performance is already great under Linux, but once more Linux software supports taking advantage of this latest cross-vendor instruction set, there will be even more speed-ups. While the Low-Level Virtual Machine does not yet have full support for taking advantage of the Advanced Vector Extensions support, in this article we are looking at how the latest development code for LLVM 2.9 and the Clang compiler are performing on Intel's Sandy Bridge in relation to GCC."

Acer Aspire 5830T notebook
     Thu, Apr 07 2011 | 12:49A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It’s been a while since we met the last representative of the new, promising series of Acer notebooks - Timeline. The elegant lines, good performance and recognisable design were accompanied by excellent battery autonomy and a reasonable price, which made these models very attractive. This time around, it’s another “sinking” - Acer’s Aspire 5830T, from the new TimelineX generation. The recognisable ground aluminium lid with a silver Acer logo is present here as well. Besides the fact that pressure on the lid causes no display distortion, the aluminium surface also provides additional ruggedness and strength to the notebook. The sharp lines are usually indicative of business models, but Acer has used a small trick - all edges are rounded or mildly tilted against the surface they’re facing, which makes the new TimelineX models much more attractive to a wider number of customers…
