CoolerMaster's NEW CMStorm Enforcer ATX Mid-Tower Gaming Chassis
     Thu, Apr 21 2011 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, CoolerMaster unveils their brand new budget gaming case known as the CMStorm Enforcer. This new case shares an uncanny resemblance to the HAF 912 Advanced. A case that I’m quite fond of because it was the same case that allowed me to set a blistering 4:09 at this year’s CA Build Your Own PC race (formerly known as the Tiger Direct Charity PC Race). Let’s take an exclusive inside and outside look at the case in our video below...

Fractal Design Define R3 ATX Tower
     Thu, Apr 21 2011 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The R3 is an update to Fractal Design's popular Define R2 ATX tower case. Faster yet smoother fans give it greater airflow and cooling potential, and the heavy bitumen mats have been tossed in favor of more conventional acoustic dampening foam.

Club3D GeForce GTX 550 Ti CoolStream OC Edition
     Thu, Apr 21 2011 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The fight on the mid-range gaming graphics market is really heating up, AMD got there first with the launch of the HD68-series Barts-cards, but since then Nvidia has introduced their new GTX 560 Ti and GTX 550 Ti series cards. Let us start with the GTX 550 Ti."

Cubitek HPTX Tank Review
     Thu, Apr 21 2011 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Tank series features 3 different designs, we will be taking a look at the biggest of the 3 today - HPTX Tank. As with all the cases in this series, the HPTX Tank is fully aluminium. It is wide, allowing up to 190mm tall CPU coolers to be installed and can house XL-ATX motherboards such as GIGABYTE's G1 Assassin and EVGA's SR-2. Being able to house such big hardware also means long graphics cards can also be installed within the HPTX Tank, in fact up to 340mm of clearance is available! With lots of cooling, lots of space and lots of features I'm expecting some good results from this case, Lian Li ought to be very afraid.

KFA2 GeForce GTX 560 EX OC 1024MB
     Thu, Apr 21 2011 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This time we got two GeForce GTX 560 Ti products for review. One is made by KFA2, the other, by Gigabyte. Both solutions are custom-made, and the Gigabyte's card is also extremely factory-overclocked, so it should be very fast."

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 550 Ti
     Thu, Apr 21 2011 | 12:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While we are not entirely convinced that the GeForce GTX 550 Ti is a worthy contender at $149 US, Gigabyte certainly has done a lot to improve its value. When compared to the Radeon HD 6850 which was consistently much faster, the GeForce GTX 550 Ti costs just 15% less despite being around 30% slower most of the time.

Subpixel Reconstruction Antialiasing (SRAA)
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 11:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Subpixel Reconstruction Antialiasing (SRAA) combines singlepixel (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 super-resolution depth and normal buffers, so it can be incorporated into an existing renderer without modifying the shaders. In this way SRAA resembles Morphological Antialiasing (MLAA), but the new algorithm can better respect geometric boundaries and has fixed runtime independent of scene and image complexity."

IN WIN BUC Mid-Tower Case Review
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 10:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
That case would be the IN WIN BUC. IN WIN's concept for the BUC is "strong shield". They get this idea from its black SECC steel build and hard looking design. The BUC comes with many nice and innovative features for any builder. For cooling, the BUC comes with three 12cm fans. One on the front, top, and rear of the case. There are three 5.25" and one 3.5" drive bays. For internal storage, the BUC can hold five drives of either 3.5" or 2.5" with their device converter cage. The cage also holds four Hot-Swap modules, negating the need for extra SATA cables and conserving room."

Radeon HD 6950
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 8:33P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASUS has sent us their version of the Radeon HD 6950 to run through the paces today. The ASUS HD 6950 2GB is factory overclocked right out of the box by 10MHz, which really is not anything to write home about, but it’s there nonetheless. ASUS does include their voltage tweak software to help gain a better overclock, which we aim to attempt as we have in all of our reviews. The ASUS HD 6950 is also fitted with a non-reference, full aluminum cover to help dissipate heat better. The HD 6950 comes with a dual BIOS option from the factory, allowing users to use a BIOS from another manufacturer if they wanted, or just have an overclocked BIOS and an ASUS stock factory BIOS. But enough with the niceties, let’s get on to the real reason everyone is here – testing!

The Radeon HD 6790 1GB
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 8:33P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For the majority of gamers though, that doesn't really matter; what does is how much gaming power you can get for your hard-earned (or lazily acquired) local currency. In that regard, the Radeon HD 6790 1GB is a graphics card that puts even more pressure on NVIDIA and its GTX 500-series than it had before and leaves AMD as our favorite option for $150."

AMD Radeon HD 6790 1 GB
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 8:32P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today AMD is releasing their new Radeon HD 6790 which is targeted at the $150 segment that recently saw some love from NVIDIA in form of their GTX 550 Ti. AMD's new card uses the same GPU as the more powerful HD 6850 and HD 6870, so it will be interesting to see where it stands and whether it can defeat NVIDIA's latest offering.

AMD Radeon HD 6790 graphics card
     Wed, Apr 20 2011 | 8:32P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA nicely summed up this year’s first quarter with GTX 550, which seemed like a great competitor against Radeon HD 5770. Everything would have been perfect for the Americans if AMD hadn’t already planned the counterattack for the very beginning of the second quarter, or to be precise, 5th April. The new Radeon is named HD 6790 and is somewhat of a modification, or a weakened version of, Radeons HD 6850/6870, based on the Barts GPU. As such, this model is based on the VLIW5 architecture, which is somewhat old and doesn’t belong to the truly high-class Radeons; all chips from the Cayman family are based on VLIW4 (Very Long Instruction Word). Besides, the Barts chip located in HD 6970 has been weakened in order to replace the already obsolete HD 5770...
