Sapphire Radeon HD 5850 Xtreme DirectX 11 Video Card Review
     Sat, Apr 30 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Sapphire HD5850 Xtreme is a low-cost and powerful DX11 option. The Sapphire HD5850 Xtreme uses an original cooler design that is significantly quieter and cooler than the loud blower-style fan used on stock HD5850 designs. The Sapphire HD5850 has 1440 stream processors and 72 texture units with 1GB of GDDR5 memory, able to handle even the latest DirectX11 games. Although the HD5850 Xtreme edition comes with one less DVI port and one less CrossFireX connector, it is priced below $150 USD, offering huge savings compared to regular HD5850 video cards, while out-performing an NVIDIA card at the same price range."

One company that was not offering power supplies until more recently, and have been doing a great job in that market now is Kingwin.

On the test bench today is Xigmatek's mid-compact Loki SD963 heatsink. The Xigmatek Loki SD963 stands 134mm tall, weighs 430 grams, comes equipped with a 92mm fan mounted on rubber vibration absorbing fan posts and will support a second 92mm fan if desired (not included). Over the next few pages Frostytech will tell you if the Xigmatek Loki SD963 heatsink is worth its weight in aluminum, or junk for the recycling bin. Let's begin.

AMD Catalyst 11.4 Windows 7 Driver Analysis
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 11:14P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Unless you've been living under a rock, you would know that the release of the Catalyst 11.4s has been anticipated as one of the most significant ones from AMD in many months. We've actually been using the 11.4 driver for months in the form of the HD 6990 Beta and new models that launched after the HD 6990 carried with them slightly modified versions of the 11.4. Today, though, we've got a WHQL version and we'll of course be comparing it to the 11.3 driver which while we thought was better than the 11.2s, wasn't as much of a stand out as the 11.4 betas that we'd been using."

ASRock E350M1 AMD Fusion APU Motherboard
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 9:43P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today's review sample is the ASRock E350M1, which as the name indicates is an AMD E350 Fusion APU with the Hudson-M1 (A50M) FCH. This is an mITX desktop board aimed at anyone interested in building a powerful, yet power conservative, HTPC or Nettop system. With the dual-core 1600MHz E350 being fused together with a Radeon HD 6310 GPU, it makes for the perfect platform with enough horse power for either task. Should you want to make a light TV gaming machine, a digital TV box for DVR, or want the best sound possible for your movies, then there is also a full length PCIe slot that can be filled with a discrete card to match your needs. Having four internal SATA-III ports could easily turn the E350M1 into a massive storage DVR or media storage HTPC. Join us as we see what this little APU equipped board is made of and what it is capable of handling.

GIGABYTE G1.Assassin gaming motherboard
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 9:42P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Gaming" motherboards seem to be a dime a dozen these days but it's rare to see a product that's built from the ground up to cater to the unique needs of the gaming community. This is exactly what Gigabyte is looking to accomplish with the G1 Killer series; particularly with the flagship G1.Assassin. Packing a Bigfoot Killer E2100 NPU and a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi digital audio processor, this motherboard seems to have what it takes to make a splash in a highly competitive market.

Posted by: STAFF
Today we are going to have a look at a product from their latest series of power supplies, called NAXN, the NAXN 82+ 750W unit. How Enermax chose such a strange name for their new series of PSUs we will never know; what we do know is that the NANX series consists of the most aggressively priced products the company currently offers and they are obviously designed to appeal to budget-minded enthusiasts.

ASUS EAH 6990 Review
     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 9:29P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the EAH 6990, ASUS presents its first AMD Radeon HD 6900 series graphics card featuring two GPUs. The successor of the already very powerful Radeon HD 5970 lets us all hope for another superb graphics card with excellent performance because it's a fully functionnal dual Cayman XT (aka Radeon HD 6970) with high clock speeds. We expect really good DX11 performance and we're going to show you if the Radeon HD 6990 performs as well as an HD 6970 CrossFire setup.

     Fri, Apr 29 2011 | 9:28P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That drive to produce excellence no matter what the product has helped them to secure an enviable reputation as one of the PC world's top manufacturers. Even the HTPC market is in their sights with ASUS aiming squarely at the compact home cinema market with their brand new E35M1-I Deluxe. Using the ultra compact ITX form factor the board packs a truck load of current features like USB 3.0, SATA 6.0Gbps (courtesy of AMD's Hudson M1 chipset) and AMD's low power Zacate E350 dual core processor.
