Wintec Industries 4GB AMPX DDR2 1066MHz Extreme Dual Channel Memory
     Thu, Jan 13 2011 | 12:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Modern day computing has seen its share of increases over the past decade. Each year components in the personal computer have become quicker by a substantial rate and it turns out Gordon Moore was almost correct in his thoughts regarding where the pace of continued development in the semiconductor industry was heading Take for instance double data rate synchronous dynamic random access memory or DDR SDRAM, the most commonly utilized choice of memory for modern day computers. It was only back in 2000 that we began to see how DDR SDRAM began to be the game changer over standard SDRAM and made all others before it obsolete. Fast forward ten years and today we are indeed seeing how DDR has evolved and are now in the DDR3 era. DDR1 is now obsolete while DDR3 is kingpin, however, where does that leave DDR2? Today I will review and share with you regarding a Dual Channel memory kit upgrade from Wintec Industries that will help you extract as much performance from your DDR 2 system configuration as possible. I present to you the Wintec Industries 4GB AMPX DDR2 1066Mhz Extreme Dual Channel Memory Kit (3AXT8500C5-4096K) review. This is a super long-term review with my thoughts on running this memory kit for close to one year now."

Western Digital AV-GP 2 TB Hard Disk Drive Review
     Wed, Jan 12 2011 | 4:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the years there has always been one constant when it comes to digital media consumption--hard drives, an essential necessity in the world of digital entertainment. If it wasn’t for a hard drive we would not have digital video recorders, computers and in our niche of the world, home theater computers. It seems like yesterday when I got my first computer which came with a whopping 40MB hard drive that was three times the size of todays standard hard drives. My how the times have changed. Now my HTPC runs 4 terabytes (TB) of storage space for recording TV shows and my WHS machine has over 10TB of storage. In the latest of a long line of hard drives from Western Digital comes their AV-GP line of hard drives. Courtesy of HDStor, Inc the 2TB AV-GP is an audio-video optimized version of their WD Caviar Green hard disk drive line. With specialized firmware this drive is optimized for recording and storing audio and video. This review will dive into just how well this hard drive performs, and if it does what it says it will do.

AMD Radeon HD 6950 & 6970 CrossFire Video Card Reviews
     Wed, Jan 12 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We knew coming into this review that AMD's Radeon HD 6970 video card wouldn't be able to beat out the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 and we know that will upset many of the AMD fans that have been waiting for this card. AMD told us that NVIDIA would have them beat when it comes to single card performance, but that they would have a much better price point. At $369 the AMD Radeon HD 6970 is priced to compete with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 and we have to say the two cards traded blows. In the 11 benchmarks that we ran the GeForce GTX 570 won six and the Radeon HD 6970 won five of them. As you can see these two cards are very close in terms of gaming performance and even the price tag is pretty close..."
