Intel SNB Linux Driver Can Out Run Windows Driver
     Sat, Jun 11 2011 | 12:16A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While last week we reported Intel Sandy Bridge graphics support is still troubling in Ubuntu 11.04 and also the support broke at the last minute in Linux 2.6.39, there`s really good news to report this week from the Sandy Bridge Linux land. When using the very latest working Linux driver code, in many cases the OpenGL performance of this open-source driver stack is now faster than Intel`s official Windows 7 driver.""

Brink GPU & CPU Performance Test
     Fri, Jun 10 2011 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Splash Damage is no newcomer to the first-person shooter genre having released two Wolfenstein games, Doom 3, and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars in the last decade. Brink is the company's latest creation, a class-based multiplayer first-person shooter built on a modified version of idTech 4. Since launching last week the game has received mixed reviews, nonetheless we're optimistic about Brink as it looks to be an exciting, fast-paced first-person shooter that should run well on a wide range of hardware -- or so we suspect. Continue reading to see how the game performs on a dozen current and previous-generation GPUs priced from $100 to $700.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Review
     Fri, Jun 10 2011 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A couple of months ago we were checking out Lenovo’s then latest ThinkPad offering, the X220. Based on Intel’s second generation Core processors, this system was classic business-oriented ThinkPad throughout. A few months before the X220, I had the IdeaPad U260 in-house which was classified by Lenovo as a “thin, light, stylish travel companion”. I mention those two units as a transition to what we have for review today, the new ThinkPad X1. As the thinnest ThinkPad ever, the X1 seemingly takes the best features from the X220 and the U260 and merges them into one. The result is an extremely thin and sleek 13.4” notebook that is a real follow-up model to the X300 series that many came to own and love a couple of years ago.

Budget Graphics Card Comparison: 13 Sub-$150 Boards Tested
     Fri, Jun 10 2011 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For all the glory that comes with owning a dual-GPU video card, the reality is most hardware buffs don't have the coin to fund their desires. Instead, the typical system builder settles for a graphics solution in the $100 to $250 territory, which generally provides enough performance to play any modern game with reasonable settings. Fortunately for cash-strapped gamers, intense competition between AMD and Nvidia ensures that the sub-$150 market is well stocked. Along with wallet-friendly HD 6000 and GTX 500 products, many older mainstream cards have been demoted to the budget bracket. We'll compare the most relevant ones in this review, with a total of thirteen graphics card models tested.

The Best Budget & Mainstream Processors
     Fri, Jun 10 2011 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Choosing a CPU platform is usually the first thing you do when building your own computer. If you've been following our reviews and always-fresh desktop PC buying guide you probably already have a good idea of the current landscape: Intel introduced their Sandy Bridge processors at the beginning of the year, bringing unparalleled performance and improved power consumption, while AMD has little to compete with above the $125 mark -- though that might change soon. Although we always try to keep you up to speed by reviewing the latest CPU releases as these take place, we've compiled a handy list of what we consider the best processor options right now at several price points between $80 and $225. Items are listed from least to most expensive and therefore, also by performance. For reference, we've also placed each product next to its closest competitor or best alternative if you are looking for a drop-in upgrade.

COMPUTEX 2011 – Asus Wavi Xtion Kinect Clone Demo’d By Booth Babe
     Fri, Jun 10 2011 | 12:02P | Tradeshows / Events | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Remember a couple years ago when Asus tried to ride the popularity of the Nintendo Wii by coming out with something that look eerily similar to the Wii Remote and Nunchuk? I think it was called the Eee Stick or something. Well, you know Kinect for Xbox 360 has been doing reasonably well? It looks like Asus wants a piece of that motion-sensing pie too.

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