AMD Radeon HD 6990 4GB
     Sun, Mar 27 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD's second generation DX11 lineup is finally starting to take full shape and the latest card is one which many have been eagerly anticipating. Code named Antilles and officially called the HD 6990, it incorporates a pair of Cayman XT cores into a single PCB design which sports 4GB of GDDR5 and a sky high price of $699. This is obviously an enthusiast-oriented product but can it deliver in some of the most demanding situations?

AMD and NVIDIA based video cards
     Sun, Mar 27 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The potential is there, but we just haven’t seen enough of it yet. The idea is compelling, but the current implementations are still behind the curve when being compared to native Crossfire or SLI products. It is a good start, but I would argue that the technology is still a bit immature. This hopefully will change. I cannot reiterate enough that the potential for this technology is outstanding, but delivering upon that promise is going to be a challenge."

XPAND X103 Universal 3D Glasses Review
     Sun, Mar 27 2011 | 12:02P | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This wouldn’t be so bad if the glasses were inexpensive, but with glasses costing over $100 each, not too many consumers are going to be stockpiling glasses for a rare group viewing. Furthermore, those 3D glasses might be worthless if a 2nd 3D display or replacement 3D display is purchased from another manufacturer. This is where XPAND steps in and attempts to alleviate the problem with their line of universal 3D glasses. Today, we’ll be taking a look at the XPAND X103 universal 3D glasses.

Enermax Hoplite Mid Tower Case Review
     Sun, Mar 27 2011 | 12:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Enermax Hoplite has loads of features. It can hold up to six 120mm fans, hot swap bays, external hard drive dock, SSD support, and the very important off switch for the LED fan. It has plenty of room as well. The Hoplite ECA3220 can accommodate video cards up to 315mm (13.77”) long. It can also support CPU coolers up to 178mm tall without side panel fans, 160mm with side panel fans. So that means just about any CPU cooler on the market will fit in the Hoplite series and can still use the side panel fans..."

     Sun, Mar 27 2011 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There has been the same undisputed leader in the graphics cards market for almost eighteen months now. As with many good things, they all must come to an end or at least step aside in order to give way to the new generation. Sticking to its ‘premium products are of dual chip design’ dogma, AMD has just released its latest dreadnought – Radeon HD 6990.

They are targeted for netbooks and nettops, which is the market where AMD hasn’t been represented at all before. However, will AMD manage to revolutionize this market and push aside Intel Atom and Nvidia ION? Let’s find out!

In addition to Daytrotter’s Horseshack studios, Seagate will also sponsor John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show @ SXSW.

Arctic Sound P531 Headphones
     Sat, Mar 26 2011 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I got a chance to review the Arctic Sound P321’s a while back, letting you know they were a good and affordable set. As such, I made sure to let Arctic know that I'd love to get my hands on their upgraded Professional 5.1 Gamer headset. Well my wish was granted, and I found a set waiting at home for me after work. Now I know I’ve talked about how I always skimped out on the audio side of things, but I had been trying to change that. I had hoped to improve my first person skills a little and to enjoy my music a bit more, so I had been looking at upgrading my audio. While keeping my eyes open for a great deal for this audio upgrade I became big fan of Newegg’s shell shocker deals, and over the last year I’ve gotten pretty lucky and picked up a set of Creative Fatality Gaming Headset and the Creative Fatality sound card. Those two really are meant to be together and truly provide a boost to your listening pleasure by improving the overall sound quality. So I must admit I’m a bit spoiled, which sadly to say despite my pleasant experience with the P321, was not that confident that the P531’s would be able to compete with the paired, high priced (before shell shocker) Creative set.

AMD Radeon HD 6990 Graphics Card Review
     Sat, Mar 26 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The fastest graphics card in the world.” That’s what AMD says about their dual-GPU beast of a card, the HD 6990 that releases today. Will it ring true? With two of their top-of-the-line Cayman GPUs on board, it’s hard to think it wouldn’t. They’re not individually the fastest GPUs in the world, but can they reign supreme as a team?

Posted by: STAFF
"The netbook shelf is a crowded place these days, and it can be tough for buyers to see the difference among the various 10-inch, Intel Atom-powered netbooks out there. Thanks to a few above average specs, like a 320GB hard drive and a long lasting battery, the Acer Aspire One D260-1270 stands out among a crowd of look-alike products."

Kingston SSDNow V100 256GB Solid State Drive Review
     Sat, Mar 26 2011 | 12:00P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week we showed you the new Kingston SSDNow V+100 that uses a new Toshiba controller and offers good mainstream performance, but the current price is quite a bit higher than what we wanted to see. Today we're looking at the new Kingston SSDNow V100 with a Toshiba labeled controller designed in cooperation with JMicron. The V100 is Kingston's new budget series that is designed to meet the needs of mainstream users. Last year we showed the Kingston SSDNow V Series and the new V100 is the updated replacement model. The new V100 is more of an evolutionary upgrade since it uses the same 64MB cache capacity, but the flash has been upgraded to 32nm (shrunk from 43nm). Both the V and V100 are controlled by a controller based on the JM618, so the main changes rest in the NAND flash and firmware."
