CoreRise Comay Venus Pro 3 Review reported at 01:50 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: Real World Labs
Article Quote:
At the end of the day the Kingston HyperX LoVo is an outstanding kit of memory that has the performance of memory running at much higher voltage levels. So, if you are building a rig and low power consumption is a must, the Kingston LoVo memory will fit the bill nicely. Currently this memory has an MSRP of $119 for a 16GB kit, which is on the higher side of 1.35V memory.

Sapphire Edge-HD Review reported at 12:30 PM
category: Small Form Factor     website: Hardware.Info
Article Quote:
In the end the verdict depends on how you plan on using the mini PC. The HD4 is a smart solution if you need a relatively powerful compact PC, as the processor is significantly faster than previous models. If you need decent graphical performance, we recommend that you get something with AMD hardware. The Sapphire Edge VS4, which we haven't tested, has an AMD A4 CPU and is more expensive, but likely a better choice for graphics. We did test the Edge VS8, but it is too expensive for what it offers.

Samsung PM840 Review reported at 12:14 PM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: Myce
Article Quote:
As a system drive with the operating system and applications running from the Samsung 840, this SSD is pretty hard to fault. Its excellent reading performance ensures that applications launch very quickly, and it has more than enough writing performance to make sure that the Samsung 840 never feels sluggish. Where things are not quite so good is when you start to use the free space on the SSD as a scratch disk for editing and storing data that you may be working on. Apart from the fairly low sequential writing speeds (by today’s standards), the other slight problem is that writing performance is unpredictable when 840 has reached a stage where is has no clean NAND to work with. With some idle time, performance is very decent indeed, but push the drive hard with sequential writes, then it appears that garbage collection just can’t keep up with the demand, which appears to be down to the TLC NAND implementation in this SSD.

AMD Athlon X4 740 & 750K Review reported at 12:12 PM
category: Socket FM2     website: iXBT Hardware
Article Quote:
Today, in the low price segment Intel can only offer Pentium models. Not bad those, especially the Ivy Bridge ones, but considering that more and more applications are becoming thread-hungry, the future of Pentium looks obscure. On the contrary, AMD's budget models are ready to rise and shine.

Gigabyte GV-NTITAN-6GD-B Review reported at 11:59 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: Legion Hardware
Article Quote:
So then what is the point of the GeForce GTX Titan if there are a number of readily available solutions that provide better value? The point is to buy at least two, if not three, and play at resolutions well beyond just a single 2560x1600 display - see why it’s a niche product.

Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UP4 TH Review reported at 11:58 AM
category: Socket 1155 Motherboards     website: ocaholic
Article Quote:
If you want to build a mid-range computer or a multimedia system, which is based on a new Ivy Bridge CPU with native support of the Thunderbolt technology then the Gigabyte Z77X-UP4 TH is a very good choice. Not only beaucause it is the cheapest thunderbolt board but also because it is a solid board.

Gigabyte GV-NTITAN-6GD-B Review reported at 11:57 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: TechSpot
Article Quote:
Overall, the Titan gave a remarkable showing, but it's one thing to admire its performance and another thing entirely to spend $1,000 on it. At that price, buying a Titan doesn't make a whole lot of sense for most users given that a pair of GTX 660 Tis in SLI will deliver a comparable gaming experience for around $400 less.

MadCatz F.R.E.Q.7 Review reported at 11:55 AM
category: headsets     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
"Of course you are getting one of the highest quality 7.1 virtual surround headsets in the market as we speak (also comes in 4 different colors) that offers crystal clear audio with deep/rich bass, plenty of volume, very good positioning audio when used with games that support it, dual connectivity and a nice looking desktop stand so in a way the price is justified (although a small price cut is in order). Still although the F.R.E.Q.7 is indeed a step above the already great F.R.E.Q.5 the Dolby Pro Logic IIx virtual surround sound is far from perfect which is partially why we are giving it our Golden Award."
