Corsair Obsidian 650D review
     Sat, May 07 2011 | 4:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review the Corsair Obsidian 650D. And yeah, they stripped away the removable front drive bays, made the chassis smaller and boom, the Obsidian 650D was born. A chassis that is just as impressive as its bigger brother the 800D really. Plenty of space, all graphics cards to date fit in there (length wise), many drive bays, fan controller, USB 3.0 frontpanel support, easy to clean dust filters and a solution that is once again pretty much tool free and comes in that scrumptious all black design.

     Sat, May 07 2011 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The sub-$100 chassis market is filled to the brim with selection, with the $70 price-point in particular being a total hotspot.

HD 6870 cards from Diamond, PowerColor, MSI, Sapphire & XFX
     Sat, May 07 2011 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With high end and lower tiered cards being released to complete AMD's full 6000-series lineup, many forget that the most popular market segment lies within the $175 and $225 price brackets. Here, cards like the GTX 560 Ti and HD 6950 1GB reign supreme but the HD 6870 with its long list of pre overclocked and custom cooled models still offers some great value. In this roundup we take a look at five different HD 6870 cards from some of AMD's premier board partners.

ASUS NVIDIA GeForce GTX 590 Launch Review
     Sat, May 07 2011 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the recent release of the Radeon 6990 AMD overtook the GTX 580 in framerate performance, giving them the chance to claim they had the fastest graphics card available. On launch day we all knew that this might not last for long though as it was clear that NVIDIA was readying their long awaited dual GPU upgrade. Today that product is released and it is called the GTX 590. With two GTX 580 based GPUs on one PCB can NVIDIA offer a desirable alternative to the 6990? We will find out as we take a look at the card in real world scenarios, including the retail version of Crysis 2 at 5760x1080 (with video footage), stereoscopic 3D and GPU computing."

Mach Xtreme Technology MX-GX 16GB USB 3.0 Flash
     Sat, May 07 2011 | 12:02P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Since this reviewer started testing components there has been little change in the way we connect external storage devices. USB, primarily 2.0 has been the main connection method with some manufacturers dabbling with eSATA, Firewire and even LAN connectors with varying success. Finally though it looks like we will be moving on from the 30MB/s cap of USB 2.0 as pretty much every device from low cost net tops to high end motherboards now come through our labs with USB 3.0 connectivity."

Today we see the successor to that product launch, the Vertex 3 which runs on SandForce's latest controller and we have a 240GB sample on our test bench to find out how it compares to products currently on the market in a selection of real world and synthetic tests."
