AMD Eyefinity and Surround mutli-display
     Sat, Jul 14 2012 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"AMD Eyefinity and Surround mutli-display setups are continuing to grow ever more popular, however with most GPU's you can't just connect any three monitors onto a card and expect Eyefinity to work. Some level of planning is required, and in most cases at least one DisplayPort connectoion must be used. Sapphire's answer to this inconvenience is the FleX line of graphics cards. Lke most cards, these are equipped with two DVI connectors. However, a third DVI monitor is also supported thanks to the Sapphire HD 7870 FleX's HDMI to DVI adapter. This makes things just a little more "FleXible" for users planning an Eyefinity setup!"

BitFenix Prodigy Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Jul 13 2012 | 4:12P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Prodigy is a Mini-ITX chassis with a stylish appearance, incorporating what BitFenix call BitFenix FyberFlexT. Inside, this case can accommodate an assortment of cooling fans, HDD storage, big CPU coolers and has the space for even the most high-end graphics cards. Available in Midnight Black or Arctic White I would be lying if I said today`s review comes without eagerness. Let`s begin our analysis of Prodigy."

Corsair Vengeance 2000 Wireless Headset @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Jul 13 2012 | 4:12P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Of all of the headsets that we have had into the office, almost every headset at some point in time has ended up tangled up in the wheels of my office chair. With wired headsets you either end up with too short of a cord or so much that you are running it over like me. Wireless is an interesting option but the wireless headsets available havent been interesting for the most part. Seeing Corsair bring out a wireless headset, I had to get my hands onto one to see if they live up to Corsairs growing reputation. After getting the Vengeance 2000 wireless gaming headset in and spending a few weeks we can go over their performance, comfort, and find out if wireless is the way to go."

We are going to take this one in another direction (perhaps a little in reverse with a bit of the end at the beginning). At first glance, this board does not seem to be worth the money and we want to clear the air a little about what most people may not (do not) need."

AMD delays launch of desktop Trinity to October 2012
     Fri, Jul 13 2012 | 3:11P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
According to an unconfirmed report on Digitimes, AMD's next desktop CPU, code named 'Trinity' has been pushed back from August till October 2012.

"Many Socket FM2-based processors including A10-5800k will be delayed.

Meanwhile, AMD originally planned to fully replace AM3-based processors with its FM1-based processors, but has recently adjusted its roadmap and changed the phase-out schedule of AM3-based processors from mid-2012 to the second quarter of 2013, while the processor series will account for 30% of AMD's total desktop processor shipments, the sources noted.

The sources also pointed out that after October, many AMD-based CPUs with different sockets will be available in the market including AM3, AM3+ (Vishera), FM1 (Llano), FM2 (Trinity) and FT1 (Brazos 2.0). Of which, FM2-based processors will account for 22% of AMD's total desktop processor shipments in the fourth quarter, while FM1-based products' proportion will drop from 30% in the third quarter to only 16%. AM3 and AM3+ processors will still be the major CPU segments for AMD in the fourth quarter.

In October, AMD also plans to launch three new AM3+ Vishera-based processors (Volan) including FX-8350 (125W/95W) and FX6300, with FX-4320 to be launched at a later time."

Lian Li PC-TU200 @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Jul 13 2012 | 12:13P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to Mini ITX cases for use in portable LAN builds the selection leaves a lot to be desired. After taking a look at the Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe I realized how Mini ITX has even more possibilitys now than back a few years ago when I was pushing it before. With that potential you are going to need a case to pack everything in and it will hopefully be easy to carry to LANs. This is where Lian Li is coming in with the PC-TU200. Its small form factor design and carrying handle have all the potential to be a perfect LAN case, of course if you cant fit your cutting edge rig inside, it wont matter. Lets take a closer look and see what you can do with it."

Zotac GTX 670 AMP! Review - XSReviews
     Fri, Jul 13 2012 | 12:11P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today I`m testing the Zotac GTX 670, the GTX680`s little brother. This version of the GTX670 happens to be the Zotac AMP!; an amped up, overclocked, more powerful variant. Fitted with two large fans and massive heatsink, the cooler should do a pretty awesome job, but as with everything here, we need to put it to the test before deciding. Let`s crack on. A link to the article would be much appreciated."

Posted by: STAFF
Corsair has successfully entered the gaming arena with their Vengeance brand, be it memory or gaming gear. Their first case offering geared towards this market goes by the name Vengeance C70 and is available in three colors right out of the gate: black, white or military green. Did Corsair manage to throw a grenade into the fray or will it turn out to be nothing but a dud?"

Dell Inspiron 14z Ultrabook Review
     Fri, Jul 13 2012 | 12:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Give credit to Intel for recognizing that the notebook market needed a swift kick in the pants, and for putting a noose around the necks of netbooks, which have all but been eliminated from the market place. Sure, a few straggling netbooks remain, but by and large, Intel is now heavily invested (both literally and figuratively) in the Ultrabook platform. These thin and light machines represent the natural evolution of laptops, and the form factor continues to evolve right before our eyes, which is something that's underscored by the likes of Dell's Inspiron 14z Ultrabook. The Inspiron 14z Ultrabook configuration Dell sent us to examine sports an AMD Radeon HD 7570M GPU with 1GB of onboard memory, an Ivy Bridge processor, 8GB of fast DDR3-1600 memory, and an optical drive, still somewhat of a rarity in this form factor...

Alienware M17x R4 (2012) Review, Ivy Bridge and Kepler Refresh
     Fri, Jul 13 2012 | 12:02P | Operating System | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The term “laptop” can only be loosely applied to the nearly 9.39-pound Alienware M17x--you don’t exactly want to have the thing perched on your lap for any extended period of time. But you know what? Who cares. The M17x is a powerful and (mostly) portable gaming rig, and Dell can call it anything they want; awesome by any other name is still awesome. The M17x has been in Dell’s Alienware lineup for a while, but now it’s been refreshed with the latest and greatest in mobile components, packing an Ivy Bridge CPU, the Intel Core i7-3720QM, and the newest NVIDIA Kepler-based mobile GPU, the GeForce GTX 680M...

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
