Patriot Xporter XT Rage 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Review
     Tue, Jan 18 2011 | 6:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Well, when it comes down to it, Patriot has made a good product here with the Xporter XT Rage 32GB USB 2.0 Flash drive. Patriot Memory says this drive has up to 27MB/s Read and 25MB/s Write speeds and we were able to hit faster than this in read tests, but the write tests came up a little bit short. With its sequential read speeds hitting close to the theoretical limits of the USB specifications and its write times coming in above what Patriot specified the drive at, we definitely have a good product on our hands. This 32GB storage drive has a useable 29.8GB of storage space, so when it comes to storage you can keep a ton of data on the Xporter XT Rage and take it with you on the go..."

GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD7
     Tue, Jan 18 2011 | 5:53P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With users that stay up to date with latest computer hardware, and are continously looking into getting the most out of their systems, this new year brought goodies that many will drool over. Whether these users are Gamers, 3D Modelers and Animators, Film or Photo editors or even Overclocking Enthusiasts, with the latest release of the Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 32nm Sandy Bridge microarchitecture processors, the P67 Express Chipset is sure to take processing to a new level. The first review we released today, the GA-P67A-UD4 was an excellent motherboard for those looking for high processing performance but without the need for 3-Way SLI or CrossFireX support. The UD4 also showed some limitations for those looking into a powerful video editing motherboard, due to no IEEE 1394a FireWire support and less USB 3.0 and SATA III connectors. The GIGABYTE GA-P67A-UD7 motherboard that we are currently looking at is one of the top-of-the-line motherboards available on the market, with up to 10 USB 3.0 and 6 SATA III ports.

Asus RT-N16 Gigabit SuperSpeed-N Router Review
     Tue, Jan 18 2011 | 5:18P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For a sub-$100 router, the RT-N16 is an excellent choice for both beginners and enthusiasts alike. The UI is easy to work with and setting up secure wireless Internet access is a cinch even for those without advanced networking skills. For those who like to tinker, this router boasts some impressive hardware specs and supports third party firmware such as DD-WRT and Tomato."

DDR3 Memory Roundup
     Tue, Jan 18 2011 | 5:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was interesting to find that while some memory could achieve similar frequencies and timings across multiple platforms, others could not. The ADATA XPG Plus v2.0 Series DDR3 1600MHz+ for example was quite consistent as its best timings, being CL6-7-6-18, were achieved on the AM3, LGA1156 and LGA1155 platforms. Furthermore it maxed out at 1866MHz on the LGA1156 platform and 1833MHz on the AM3 platform.

MSI GeForce GTX 580 1536 MB Video Cards in SLI
     Tue, Jan 18 2011 | 4:50P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I was always a bit bummed that I never got to test the GTX 480 in SLI. We only ever had one reference card come through our doors and after that we saw MSI, Galaxy and GIGABYTE release models that were all based on their own design, making it pretty much impossible to SLI them. The main reason I wanted to test them, though, was because we knew it was going to be the fastest dual card setup we would've tested in our testbed. Crossfire wasn't scaling as strong as it is now with the HD 6000 series and the GTX 480 had a nice little jump on the HD 5870. Today is a second chance for us to look at the top end NVIDIA offering in SLI. We've got an MSI and reference GTX 580 and together we should end up with a load of power. We heard issues of 100c cores with GTX 480s and we experienced that kind of temperature with the GTX 470. The heat's a lot more attractive on the GTX 580, though, and so is power draw and noise. Since we've already looked at the MSI GTX 580 by itself, we'll just get straight into our testbed setup to see what's going on before checking out the almighty numbers."

Fun Facts: Intel's Sandy Bridge Processors
     Tue, Jan 18 2011 | 4:50P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Around this time last year we ran a story with some fun facts about Intel's then debutant 32nm manufacturing technology. For example, we learned that a 32nm transistor can switch on and off over 300 billion times in one second, conversely it would take a human 4000 years to flick a light switch on and off that many times. For the launch of their 2nd-gen Intel Core CPUs (a.k.a. Sandy Bridge), they have compiled another interesting list of fun facts. We have selected the ones we find more amusing and are republishing them with Intel's permission.

Gigabyte P67A-UD5 Motherboard
     Tue, Jan 18 2011 | 4:49P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Although P67A-UD5 isn't the highest-end product in the series, we believe it's the most reasonable high-end solution. Those who need the most will surely prefer P67A-UD7 with its full-speed PCIe x16 slots, additional controllers and steep price. Regular users will choose simpler models, like P67A-UD4 and cheaper."

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.
