Crucial m4 256GB SATA 6Gbit/s SSD Review @ Techgage
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 1:34P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s been a while since we last took a look at a Crucial product, so for the next one, how about we make it interesting? SSDs aren`t uncommon, but high-end SSDs that don`t feature a SandForce controller are - and of course, that`s what makes Crucial`s m4 notable. Does its lack of a SandForce controller hold it back? Let`s take a look."

BIOS Option Of The Week - SDRAM Command
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 12:03P | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend.

Silicon Power V20 Series 120GB SSD
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 12:00P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cracking open the Silicon Power V20 series SSD, we find a SF-1222TA3-SBH controller, the same controller utilised in OCZ's Vertex 2 SSD's. While for storage Silicon Power have included Micron-branded 29F64G08CFABA MLC based 34nm Flash NAND modules. This is the same NAND module utilised for the majority of Vertex 2 E SSD's, apart some of the late few that have moved to a smaller NAND process.

ASUS U36SD-XA1 Notebook Review: The Battery That Never Dies
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 11:50A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
All of these laptops are competitive with the U36 in performance and features (though you can?t always grab an SSD), but they do lose out in one area - battery life. If you don?t need a laptop that can last eight hours on a charge, you may be better off with the competition. But if you do need that kind of endurance, the U36 is so far superior that it becomes the clear winner with low voltage processors and NVIDIA Optimus. The enhanced gaming performance on this model may also be of some appeal, though it`s still far from sufficient for serious gaming."

Enermax Platimax 600W Power Supply Review
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 11:19A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enermax is well known amongst the enthusiast community for their quality power supplies inside and out. The examples we have seen in the last year with the MaxRevo and the Modu87+ were no exceptions, so when Enermax offered us the chance to get an early look at their upcoming Platimax unit, we gladly obliged. Enermax already has several Platimax power supplies available and we`ve heard that the 600W model will launch sometime in January 2012. The new Platimax 600W power supply boasts a lot of features that make it sound great on paper. Platinum efficiency, 100% Japanese capacitor construction, 600W of multi-GPU ready power, SpeedGuard, SafeGuard, HeatGuard, CordGuard and so much more. All of this doesn`t mean a thing if the power supply can`t back it up where it counts."

ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe Motherboard Review @Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 10:18A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hitting the near top of the Z68 lineup is the ASUS P8Z68 Deluxe motherboard. The P8Z68 Deluxe board is setup for the high performance user that requires more connectivity. Hardware features of the Deluxe motherboard include an LGA1155 socket for the newest Sandy Bridge processors. The Z68 Express Chipset supports up to 32GB of DDR3 with a max speed of 2200MHz with overclocked settings. There is support for both AMD and NVIDIAs Quad-GPU technology. The Virtu software allows virtual use of the Intel Accelerated HD Graphics loaded into the Sandy Bridge processors. However, because of no display connectivity on the back panel of the P8Z68 Deluxe, only d-MODE can be utilized."

OCZ ZT Series 650W Power Supply Review @ APH Networks
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 9:45A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the progression of time, the evolution of the human race and ideas change with it. This is quite obvious when you take a look at your photo album or history books dating back to who-knows-when. Whether it be experiences of your own life, or mistakes and successes recorded in the books of history, there are many valuable lessons to be learned. Success is what we all should take pride in, and further improvement makes us even more successful people. But as you flip the coin over and take a look at the failures, do we simply push them aside and forget that it ever happened? Getting your finger burnt on the stove teaches you to watch what you`re doing and where you`re placing things. Such concepts could also be applied in the world of technology. While in the process of developing the carbonized cotton-thread filament for the incandescent light bulb, Thomas Edison had said, I didn`t fail; I found out 2,000 ways how not to make a light bulb. The process of trial and error is one of the many paths that can be taken in the development of ideas and technology. I`m not exactly sure how some companies get things done, but what I am certain of is that the method of trial and error has been used at least once here and there. What we have today is a fully modular 80 Plus Bronze Certified mid-range power supply from OCZ -- namely, the ZT Series 650W. From the looks of it, the ZT Series 650W is a more budget friendly power supply for those that are looking for performance with 100% modular cables. Generally speaking, is the OCZ ZT Series 650W an error or a success? Read on to find out!"

Samsung TA950 27-inch 3D Monitor
     Sun, Jun 12 2011 | 9:45A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The TA950 is a 27 3D monitor, which also doubles as a television. As a television, the TA950 comes from Samsung`s 9 series - one of their high series` of televisions. As such, the TA950 is loaded with premium features, both as a monitor and as a TV. Don`t expect a premium display to come cheap though, as the TA950 will run you over $730 CDN. Is this too loaded to be a PC display, or will Samsung have found the right balance between everything to make it a worthy investment?"
