Sapphire FleX Edition Radeon HD 6870 1GB
     Sat, Mar 26 2011 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So, just what is the FleX Edition all about? It is the first line of Eyefinity capable Radeon cards that does not require an 'active adapter' or DisplayPort capable monitor in order to run in Eyefinity mode. That’s right, all you need are three DVI monitors (or two DVI, one HDMI) and a FleX Edition graphic card! Though the 6870 cards do still retain the ability to do 5x1-P (five screen, portrait), provided you have the dough for such a configuration! We will be focusing on the more budget-friendly 3-screen method on our HD 6870, so with that said; on with the show!

Sapphire Radeon HD 6990 4GB Technical Run Down
     Fri, Mar 25 2011 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We've got all our slide decks from AMD and some images from Sapphire. We'll tell you all the stuff we normally would in a video card review outside of the performance of course. Because there's so much to cover as well, it means we can get the performance article to you even faster while making sure we can cover as much information about the new dual GPU beast from AMD. Looking at the package, there's nothing really all that different to what we've seen before. Of course, the brand and model are very noticeable; so is the fact that Sapphire has chosen to let us know that it's a "Dual GPU Graphics Card". Also on the front we can see a lot of the features like 4GB of GDDR5, DirectX 11, AMD HD3D, Display Port, High Speed HDMI, 7.1 HD Surround Sound and more. We can also see the new "Vision" labeling that AMD is going to start to push. The HD 6990 4GB falls within the "Black Vision" series which seems to be at the top of the tree."

AMD Radeon HD 6990 Dual-GPU Graphics Card Review
     Fri, Mar 25 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's been a long while since we've last seen a $700 graphics card, but AMD revives that tradition with its Radeon HD 6990 dual-GPU offering. Fortunately, the card has proven that its high price-tag is well-earned, as it storms past every other single and dual-GPU graphics card on the market, and introduces other useful features to boot.

A late adopter's guide to USB 3.0
     Fri, Mar 25 2011 | 3:58P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you were still sitting on the fence, well, it's time to hop down. No matter which direction our 3.81GB file set was going, it took about twice as long to get there with USB 2.0 than with USB 3.0. You can work out the precise transfer speeds with a pocket calculator, but the important metric here is time saved: over a minute per transfer. That kind of savings adds up. If you're doing a few transfers a day, five days a week, four-and-a-little-more weeks a month, you might soon find yourself saving entire hours. Even if you make minimum wage, hours are valuable.

ASUS P7P55D-E Pro LGA 1156 Intel P55
     Fri, Mar 25 2011 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS brings the P55 chipset an update in the form of the P7P55D-E PRO, with USB 3.0 and SATA 6 Gbps. The P7P55D-E looks to rival other boards on the market, and even potentially some of the up and coming P67-based products. In the face of Intel's latest release, is it still a viable option?

Acer Veriton Z290G-UD525W
     Fri, Mar 25 2011 | 12:00P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Acer Veriton Z290G-UD525W is a one-trick pony: It's one of the cheapest touchscreen-equipped all-in-one desktop PCs on the market, but is best suited for data-entry or management applications like cash register and concierge desk managers. It's too slow to keep mainline clerical workers productive if they multitask or run any sort of multimedia software.”

Toshiba Satellite C655
     Fri, Mar 25 2011 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This makes for a complex verdict. Yes, the AMD E-240 is slow. But this laptop, the Toshiba Satellite C655, is a nice laptop for the price - and this laptop only exists because AMD has finally produced a competent Atom competitor. The 15.6” display, with its correspondingly large keyboard, is more pleasant to use than your typical 10.1” or 11.6” netbook. If you’re looking for a laptop, but your budget is slim, the Toshiba Satellite C655 should be on your short list."

Asus E35M1-M Pro Review: A Look at AMD's
     Fri, Mar 25 2011 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD Fusion is the marketing name for a series of APUs (Accelerated Processing Units) that have been in development since 2006. The final design is the result of AMD's merger with ATI, combining general processor execution as well as 3D geometry processing and other functions of modern GPUs into a single chip. AMD's ultrathin platform, code-named "Brazos", was introduced early this year as the company's fourth mobile platform targeting the ultra-portable notebook market. It features the 40nm AMD Ontario APU, a 9-watt chip for netbooks and small form factor desktops, and Zacate, an 18-watt APU for ultrathin, mainstream, and value notebooks and desktops. The Asus E35M1-M Pro motherboard we are testing today is an implementation of the AMD Fusion/Brazos platform that packs a dual-core AMD Zacate 18W processor (formally known as the E-350 APU), DirectX 11 graphics support along with USB 3.0 and SATA 6Gb/s, making for a relatively inexpensive bundle at $140.

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.
