Zalman N Series SandForce 128GB Solid State Drive
     Fri, Jan 28 2011 | 2:40P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"It is no secret that solid state drives are very profitable and every company is looking to take a slice of the green pie. The latest addition to the growing number of companies offering SSDs is Zalman. Zalman, a company best known for their high performance CPU heat sink coolers and high quality PC cases, might seem to be late for the party, but their entry comes at a time when the winners have been established and little chance of faultier was possible. Zalman's highest performing SSD, the N Series, is controlled by a SandForce SF-1200 controller, the highest performance SATA 3G controller on the market and our pick for any SSD with less than 256GB capacity. The SF-1200 is a beast of a controller and it is aging very gracefully. New firmware from SandForce and their partners has given the highest rated even better performance; something we will look at today since the new N Series uses the latest firmware offering."

Corsair Force Series F180 180GB SSD Review
     Fri, Jan 28 2011 | 2:40P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Picking a good hard drive is not an easy task. Everyone likes to focus on the fact that the CPU, Motherboard and RAM and make up the heart of the computer. I would argue that your hard drive is just as important if not more important. If you’re motherboard dies you can buy a new one and be on your way again for less than a hundred bucks. If you’re hard drive dies you may forever lose those precious memories.

Nvidia Researching Subpixel Reconstruction Antialiasing @ NGOHQ.com
     Fri, Jan 28 2011 | 2:18P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Subpixel Reconstruction Antialiasing (SRAA) combines single-pixel (1x) shading with subpixel visibility to create antialiased images without increasing the shading cost. SRAA targets deferred-shading renderers, which cannot use multisample antialiasing. SRAA operates as a post-process on a rendered image with superresolution depth and normal buffers, so it can be incorporated into an existing renderer without modifying the shaders."

ASUS GeForce GT 430
     Fri, Jan 28 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you hear the expression “graphics card”, the first thing that probably comes to mind is beasts from the high price segment. Well, this time we'll deal with models that don't require you to spend hundreds of euros for a graphics card. The two Radeon HD 5550 models that we've received have little in common bar the same GPU. They are different in memory quantity and size, dimensions, frequencies, performance, and perhaps most importantly - target market. This interesting date was joined by the new GeForce GT 430, the weakest graphics card based on the Fermi architecture, one that we expected a lot from…

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570
     Fri, Jan 28 2011 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After launching their GTX 580, many expected the rest of 2010 to be relatively quiet for NVIDIA. However, other plans were brewing in the form of the GTX 570; a $350 graphics cards with enough rendering horsepower to go head to head with the GTX 480. This could seriously shake up the market and put AMD on the defensive.

Steganos Privacy Suite 12
     Fri, Jan 28 2011 | 9:03A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Steganos means "hidden" or "covered" in Greek. Where encryption transforms a message so that it can't be read without a key, steganography hides the fact that a message even exists. Steganos Privacy Suite 12 bundles several privacy tools that can both encrypt and hide your sensitive information. The core encryption features are very well implemented, but some of the ancillary features just don't work.”

AMD Athlon II X3 455: Unlocked hidden Phenom
     Fri, Jan 28 2011 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Athlon II X3 455 happens to be one of those processors. On the surface, the X3 455 is only a triple core. However, hiding in the shadows is a sleeping core and cache that has the possibility to be accessed. The X3 455 comes with a stock speed of 3.3GHz. There is a max TDP of 95 watts. In continued AMD fashion, the X3 455 is a 100MHz step up from the X3 450. The Athlon II still remains AM2+/AM3 compatible. Stock settings give 1.5MB of L2 cache."

Clever drive cage system
     Fri, Jan 28 2011 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The 912 HAF is a sturdy and rugged mid-tower case that is full of hard angles and bold corners, giving this case quite the military appearance in that 'no-nonsense', 'I can eat a tank round' manner. Don't let that fool you however, as this case has quite a number of features that I would have only expected in a more expensive full-tower case."
