Posted by: STAFF
“Corsair is a company that we all know for memory and rightfully so, their Dominator Series of memory has been the flagship for their DDR3 line for some time now. Today we will be looking at a new enthusiast line of memory called Vengeance. The Vengeance line is aggressively priced and with a lower voltage rating of 1.5V instead of the normal 1.65V you should be able to these modules to the limit. Today we will be taking a look at the 8GB 1600MHz dual channel DDR3 kit (CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9) and putting it through it’s paces. Read on to see how well them perform!"

Overclocked GeForce GTX 480 Shoot-Out: MSI vs. Gigabyte
     Fri, Jan 14 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A funny thing happened during the course of this article—life got in the way. And in the few weeks that things were delayed, the PC graphics landscape changed dramatically. A couple of weeks before NVIDIA unleashed the GeForce GTX 580 onto the world, MSI and Gigabyte readied a pair of the most innovative GeForce GTX 480 cards to hit the market. Not only were the cards factory overclocked, but they featured custom coolers, re-worked PCBs, and hardcore, enthusiast-class features not found on any other GTX 480. MSI and Gigabyte sent us these custom GTX 480s, and just before putting the finishing touches on the piece, my wife went into labor, the GeForce GTX 580 hit, a few other launches needed coverage (including the just released GTX 570), and badabing badaboom, here we are today.

Samsung Omnia 7 smartphone
     Fri, Jan 14 2011 | 12:02P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After the first impressions obtained (and put to words on our website) not so long ago, now, after almost a month, we're allowed to officially present to you one of the first Windows Phone 7 smartphones. The hardware part of the device hasn't changed one bit, but subtle changes in the operating systems are evident compared to the version that we saw before. A very elegant casing made of plastic and light alloys gives a positive impression of the overall production quality. Without unnecessary details, and a simplistic design, mostly due to its cubical shape, it's perfectly fit for any situation…

Gainward GeForce GTX 570 1280MB Goes Like Hell Video Card Overclocked
     Fri, Jan 14 2011 | 12:01P | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Gainward offer us a great overclock out of the box when it comes to the GTX 570, but as we always try to do with the first version of a new model, we see just how far we can overclock it. At the moment we don't have any voltage adjustment ability when it comes to the core, so our overall overclock might not be as strong as it could be when we see future versions of MSI Afterburner. But we wouldn't be bringing you this article today if we didn't get at least a decent bump out of the card. Since we've already covered the Gainward GTX 570 1280MB Goes Like Hell edition in our standalone review here, we won't go into any real details on the card. Instead we'll just quickly cover the stock clocks the card carries; and more importantly the overclock we managed to achieve."

Before the year 2010 is even over, NVIDIA takes the downsizing step as well in the 500 series: The GeForce GTX 570 is based on a feature reduced GTX 580 chip. HT4U.net presents, if price-performance is appealing.

Thermaltake Challenger Gaming Keyboard Pro Review
     Thu, Jan 13 2011 | 6:36P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gaming keyboards have been a great market for Logitech and Ideazone (AKA SteelSeries). Since their initiation into the market, their blinky lights have won the heart of gamers all around the world. For me personally I have found gaming keyboard cumbersome and obnoxious and most of the time I found myself deeply confused about what else to add to my huge bank of macro keys. Then Logitech came out with and LCD panel and I will admit that was really cool, on paper, then in practicality, I haven't looked at my G15's LCD display since the first week I bought it. Thermaltake took their time before tossing their hat into the gaming peripheral ring and again on paper it seems like all the patience paid off but let's see if the features on the Thermaltake Challenger eSport Gaming Keyboard Pro really do add up to a win for Thermaltake or a big cumbersome lump of blinky uselessness:
