NVIDIAs Linux Driver On Ubuntu Is Very Competitive With Windows 8
     Sat, Aug 10 2013 | 12:20P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In recent days on Phoronix I have published benchmarks showing Windows 8 beating Ubuntu Linux for Intel Haswell performance and the Radeon Gallium3D driver losing to AMD Catalyst Legacy on Windows. As some good news for NVIDIA Linux users, the performance on Ubuntu Linux can beat out Microsoft Windows 8 on modern GPUs. However, the strong Linux performance can only be found if using the closed-source NVIDIA driver and not the open-source Nouveau alternative."

Lexar Professional 600x SDXC UHS-1 256GB Card Review
     Sat, Aug 10 2013 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lexar Professional 600x SDXC UHS-1 Card is available in capacities of 64, 128 and 256GB, the later being an industry first for this form factor. Performance is listed at sustained 90MB/s read (hence the 600x) and we can give you a heads up that it also pushes a healthy 45MB/s write performance. The card includes a $45 full version copy of Lexar Image Rescue 4 software which will recover deleted and corrupt files from the card and, remarkably, this card comes with a limited lifetime warranty.

ThinkPad Tablet 2 Review
     Sat, Aug 10 2013 | 9:03A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Apple's very first iPad hit the scene in 2010, their take on the "modern tablet" was destined to become ubiquitous: a thin, rigid slab of touchable electronics covered by a sheet of shiny Gorilla Glass. Following the iPad's resounding success, Apple made no apologies for designing their tablets as though they were giant smartphones -- or at the very least, something less than a full-fledged computer.

XFX Radeon HD 7790 Black Edition 1 GB review
     Sat, Aug 10 2013 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The AMD Radeon HD 7790 came out late March and it's still AMD's main product for the 100-150 euro price segment. While the Radeon HD 7790 cards are facing strong competition from the Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost, the 1 GB models from AMD certainly still interesting due to their low price. We already tested Radeon HD 7790 cards from ASUS, MSI and Sapphire. Today we'll take a closer look at the XFX Radeon HD 7790 Black Edition 1GB, and compare its performance and price to the other 7790 cards.

Digital Storm VIRTUE: Intel Haswell-Powered Gaming PC
     Sat, Aug 10 2013 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Intel Haswell-based gaming rigs keep coming. Digital Storm sent us a mid tower gaming machine dubbed the Digital Storm VIRTUE Level 3, which boasts some hot, next-gen components wrapped inside a stoic, unadorned chassis--rather like the CyberPowerPC Xtreme Gamer 5200 we just looked at. Digital Storm says that the VIRTUE was an effort to create a mid tower-sized option that evinced the same care and attention typically devoted to the bigger, showier gaming rigs we're used to seeing... The Digital Storm VIRTUE is powered by a factory-overclocked Intel Core i7-4770K processor and is paired to an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 (3GB) GPU. There's also 16GB of DDR3-1600MHz memory in the system, plus a 120GB Corsair Neutron GTX SSD and a 1TB WD Caviar Black (7200 RPM) storage drive, along with an ASUS Blu-ray player/DVD writer. In addition to the factory CPU overclock, Digital Storm says that each system undergoes 72 hours of stress testing and benchmarking before it ships. Customers get a 3-year limited warranty, as well as lifetime tech support.

MSI Z87-GD65 GAMING LGA 1150 Motherboard Review
     Sat, Aug 10 2013 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI's GAMING series is back with an all new entry. The Z87-GD65 GAMING is certainly a promising contender and is one of the more unique offerings we've seen from MSI. We liked the last GAMING board we looked at, and we have liked all previous GD-65 series motherboards, hopefully this followup entry can measure up.

HP Envy 5530 e-All-in-One Review @ TechReviewSource.com
     Sat, Aug 10 2013 | 6:19A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Clearly aimed primarily at home-rather than office-needs, the HP Envy 5530 e-All-in-One offers better than par photo quality plus par quality for graphics and text. It also throws in some home-printer features like built-in templates for graph paper and lined notebook paper. As with virtually any letter-size printer, it can also serve for light-duty home office use."

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
