Jetway NF81-T56N-LF mITX Motherboard
     Fri, Jun 10 2011 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For quite some time, Intel has been unopposed in the low budget computing department. From the first underclocked Intel Celeron powered Eee PC, to the latest generation of Intel Atom based computers, this whole sector of the market has been dominated by Intel. The major competitors have tried to get a share of the market before with VIA's Nano and AMD's Athlon Neo, but both have failed in this perilous quest. Most of the problems with these two processors were their availability, interest from consumers and manufacturers, and, for the latter part, power draw and heat. With these processors, the incumbent was basically unmoved and still left with the majority of this market sector. Despite these setbacks, AMD had tried yet again to break into this market. Today, we have one of the first few Brazos based motherboards from Jetway. Jetway is known mostly for their commercial and industrial products, but since the Mini-ITX fad, more and more users are taking a serious look at Jetway. Well today, we managed to get our hands on the Jetway NF81-T56N-LF -- which has an AMD Fusion processor with built-in graphics. It is similar to that of the Intel Atom D525, but they provide an integrated AMD Radeon HD 6310 instead. The processor itself is the AMD eOntario T56N, which is said to perform similar or better in comparison with the Intel Atom D525, and it isn't even the top of the line in the Brazos line of CPUs. So without further adieu, let's take a look at how well the AMD Brazos based Jetway NF81-T56N-LF performs against the well established duo of Intel Atom and NVIDIA's ION 2.

ASUS WL-330N3G 6-in-1 Wireless-N Mobile Router Review

Posted by: STAFF
“The ASUS WL-330N3G is a wireless router, access point, network adapter, repeater, and a Wi-Fi and 3G sharing device. For a moment, you may stop and think that the folks at ASUS must be magicians. Since only magicians could pack so many features into such a small device. Magicians or not, ASUS has created the WL-330N3G to be the Swiss Army Knife of routers. What’s better is that this Swiss Army Knife of routers is easily portable, and designed to adapt to 6 different networking situations with a few simple clicks.

ASUS Sabertooth P67 Sandy Bridge motherboard
     Fri, Jun 10 2011 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With most of the focus of the last month or so on the Z68 launch, P67 chipset may have taken a back seat but the motherboards based around it are still highly appealing. The ASUS Sabertooth in particular is a unique P67 board which sports a great price along with high end features.

Triple Monitor Gaming: GeForce GTX 590 vs. Radeon HD 6990
     Thu, Jun 09 2011 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the release of the dual-GPU AMD Radeon HD 6990, closely followed by the competing Nvidia GeForce GTX 590 we saw graphics card performance reach new heights. With bandwidth throughput in excess of 300GB/s, these cards can consume more power than entire computer systems. Moreover, the two GPUs on board of either product are so complex that combined make up for 11,000 million transistors. By utilizing three monitors games can become roughly 3x more demanding as the graphics card is required to render an overwhelmingly higher number of pixels. Whereas we commonly test graphics cards at single monitor resolutions of 1680x1050 (22”), 1920x1200 (24”) and 2560x1600 (30”), today we are taking these and adding two more LCD monitors for effective resolutions of 5040x1050, 5760x1200 and 7680x1600.

HIS Radeon HD 6850 & 6870 IceQ X Turbo Crossfire Review
     Thu, Jun 09 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Looking at the market today, the Radeon HD 6850 remains one of the best options available to gamers shopping for a sub-$200 GPU, while the Radeon HD 6870 still commands the sub-$250 bracket with its only real competition coming from the GeForce GTX 560 Ti. It's not very often that we see mainstream-level GPUs settle down for long, in this case it appears there's nothing too big on the horizon and thus we were pleased to hear that HIS was preparing an update for all card versions this year. The factory-overclocked 6870 IceQ X Turbo X and HIS Radeon HD 6850 IceQ X Turbo have upgraded coolers and are meant to be the fastest 6850 and 6870 graphics cards available out of the box -- albeit at a premium price. The 6870 IceQ X Turbo X is currently retailing for $250, while the 6850 IceQ X Turbo costs $190. Being the inquisitive type, we're determined to see if the extra fee is worthwhile.

Intel Z68 Chipset & Smart Response Technology
     Thu, Jun 09 2011 | 4:01P | Chipset | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Intel Smart Response Technology component of the Z68 is a great way for users who may not, for a variety of reasons, be able to use an SSD for their main OS but want an extra boost in performance that only an SSD can bring. Along with Intel releasing a relatively inexpensive 20GB SSD, consumers who have waited to upgrade to the Sandy Bridge platform may now have the incentive they need..."

Gigabyte GTX 560 SuperOverclock
     Thu, Jun 09 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The GeForce GTX 560 is a cutdown version of its more expensive sibling, the GTX 560 Ti. What's really interesting, however, is that the 560 costs considerably less. But beyond the reference design card, however, some manufacturers are taking what appears to already be an impressive product and pushing things further, and Gigabyte is doing this with a custom heatsink and factory overclock for their GTX 560 Super Overclock.”

SuperTalent Showcases SandForce Driven Flash Drive
     Thu, Jun 09 2011 | 12:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having announced the only USB3 Flash Drive SSD at Computex Taipei, SuperTalent was no stranger to innovation and trust us when we tell you that this flash drive is pure SSD through and through. Although we brought the news to you first at CES in January, the RC8 was initially believed to contain 3Xnm NAND flash memory, however, the release was delayed as SuperTalent thought 25nm might be a better choice. If you are looking for the absolute fastest flash drive, look no further! The RC8 is based on the heart and sole of SandForces rise to fame, the SATA 3 SF-1200 processor which is single handedly responsible for SandForces quick rise to fame in the SSD arena.

One would always expect big moves by big companies but today we happened to stumble upon something just a bit unexpected. You may remember some time ago we did a SSD review on the MX-DS 'Sandforce Driven' SSD which was introduced by a fairly new company called Mach Xtreme. We met with Tomasz Swatowski, Marketing Manager of Mach Xtreme, this morning and quite frankly, we may have stumbled on the hidden GEM of Computex SSDs.

COMPUTEX 2011 – Evolve III Maestro Convertible Tablet Triple Boots Windows

Tablets have become quite the hot commodity in the last year or two, so it’s becoming increasingly difficult for companies to differentiate their products from the competition. I think Evolve III (Evolve Three) might have accomplished that with the Maestro-C Convertible.
