Promise SmartStor NS4700
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 1:11A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“As an alternative to general purpose Windows or Linux servers, Promise SmartStor NSx7000 appliances have much to offer. They’re well built, quick and very configurable, with lots of options beyond simple network storage sharing. The NAS market, however, is highly competitive and when it comes to configuration and management the Promise solution comes in second best. It does what it’s supposed to, but others do it better and require far less technical expertise to fully exploit what NAS appliances like the SmartStor NSx700 have to offer.”

Antec have, for some time, been one of the most reputable companies when it comes to PC enclosures with an array of impressive enclosures catering for different users’ requirements.

AMD Radeon HD 6670 and 6570 Mainstream GPUs:
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 12:50A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A couple of weeks ago, AMD took the wraps off of the Radeon HD 6450, an affordable DirectX 11-class graphics card targeted at users looking to upgrade from basic, integrated graphics solutions. We posted a quick look at the Radeon HD 6450 in our news, and while the card wasn’t a barnburner, it was certainly a step up from integrated graphics. The card’s low-power characteristics, low profile, and the integration of AMD’s UVD3 video engine also made it an excellent candidate for HTPC applications. Today AMD continues to flesh out the Radeon HD 6000 series with a few more cards targeted at more budget-friendly, mainstream market segments. As their names suggest, the new Radeon HD 6670 and Radeon HD 6570 cards launching today are somewhat more powerful than the Radeon HD 6450, but they’re also priced a little higher too. We’re still talking about really affordable price-points though; 1GB GDDR5 versions of the Radeon HD 6670 will be available for as low as $99, while the 512MB GDDR5 (or 1GB DDR3) version of Radeon HD 6570 will be available for around $79...

AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB & HD 6570 512MB video cards
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 12:50A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Another week, another graphics card launch. This time AMD is hitting the entry level with a pair of new products: the HD 6670 and HD 6570. Both of these are supposed to offer budget conscious buyers some new choices over the previous generation while adding features like UVD3 into the mix. Hopefully, they'll allow lower priced GPUs to hit higher performance levels as well.

Kingston Versus IronKey - Who Has The Fastest FIPS Flash Drive
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 12:49A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"On paper it looks like the IronKey solutions should be faster, but you can't believe everything a company tells you when they are marketing a product they are trying to sell you. Since security is such a big deal to corporations these days we decided to order in these Flash drives and do some testing of our own. We've heard rumors and have experienced ourselves that review sites often get 'cherry picked' samples, so we ordered in as many drives as our $1000 self-prescribed budget would allow. You can look at our receipts from Amazon.com, TigerDirect.com and PConnection if you'd like..."

AMD Radeon HD 6450 and AMD Radeon HD 6570
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 12:49A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Presenting the lowest segment in the product gamma is usually the last step in presenting the new generation, at least in the usual scenario. In accordance with this, AMD announced their low-end chips, Caicos and Turks, for the second quarter of the current year. These chips are reserved for the weakest models from the Radeon HD 6000 series, which is probably the last thing that is going to be presented in the following months as well, with the possible exception of HD 6670. These cards are intended for non-heavy duty users, and are mostly low-profile, so that they fit not only into regular office PCs, but also HTPCs. We got two visually similar models for testing; these two small Radeons, however, turned out to be packing major differences under their coolers…

Cooler Master Centurion 5 II Limited Edition "Red" Case Review
     Tue, Apr 19 2011 | 12:49A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Centurion 5 II “Red” is a limited edition case from Cooler Master. The Cooler Master Centurion 5 II Red edition has a steel body and a fully black painted exterior outfitted with an acrylic side window so you can see the striking red painted interior. A case for gamers, the Cooler Master Centurion 5 II Red edition can be fitted with up to 4 fans, 2 of which already come pre-installed: a 140mm red LED intake fan at the front and a 120mm red LED exhaust fan at the rear. Improving upon the original Cooler Master Centurion 5 design, the Centurion 5 II has better airflow options, 2.5” and 1.8” drive mounting support and a removable I/O module. Unfortunately, being a limited edition case, the Cooler Master Centurion 5 II Red edition case is only available in select retailers from Asia and Australia."

Posted by: STAFF
Many graphics cards are rebranded reference designs. Sapphire doesn't play that game, and releases their HD 6950 Flex 2GB to prove it. This card has a trick, the ability to run 3 monitors right out of the box. Tricks are great, but does the card have the muscle to satisfy gaming enthusiasts? Read on to find out.
