Nvidia Quadro K5000 Professional Graphics Card (Part 3)
In the tests on professional graphics cards, first of all, we ran SPECviewperf, this software has become an industry standard for the evaluation of graphics workstations. SPECviewperf sends predefined sequences of OpenGL instructions to the graphics card driver, describing the rotations of the complex models that are typical of many professional applications.
Nvidia Quadro K5000 Professional Graphics Card (Part 2)
The series of graphics cards based on Kepler has a slightly different structure rather than the others. Typically, a GPU manufacturer concentrates on producing a valuable feature which is the first top-end solution and then launches less advanced modifications.
Nvidia Quadro K5000 Professional Graphics Card (Part 1)
The new generation on Nvidia Kepler graphics architecture has finally achieved the professional graphics accelerators. We were able to put our hands on the first graphics card with the new architecture designed for high-performance workstations - Quadro K5000. Let's take a look at how more advanced the new product is when compared with the good time- experimented Quadro 5000.
Corsair Dominator Platinum Dual-Channel DDR3 Memory Kits (Part 6)
The clock speed of DDR3 SDRAM does not affect the parameters of the memory subsystem on the Ivy Bridge platform. For instance, increasing the clock speed by 333 MHz is helpful to improve the practical bandwidth by 10-20% and reduce the latency by 5-10%.
Corsair Dominator Platinum Dual-Channel DDR3 Memory Kits (Part 5)
DDR3-1600, Dominator Platinum products are rated the simplest in this review, which turns out to have no overclocking capacity. It cannot be stable even at 1800 MHz. The best thing we were able to do with CMD8GX3M2A1600C9 was that improved its timings from 9-9-9-24-2T to 9-8-7-24-1T. The clock rate was unable to be increased.
Corsair Dominator Platinum Dual-Channel DDR3 Memory Kits (Part 4)
The true overclockers will only be concerned in memory with working capacity at frequencies above 2 GHz. The CMD8GX3M2A2133C9 kit is an example, but you have to be aware that the prices of such products increase quickly along with their rated frequency. For instance, the DDR3-2133 Dominator Platinum kit is more expensive than the DDR3-1600 and DDR3-1866 series of the same capacity by 40%.
Corsair Dominator Platinum Dual-Channel DDR3 Memory Kits (Part 3)
The modules are shipped in the colorful cardboard box shaped like an octagonal prism. Cutouts in the packaging allow you to see the stickers with the product information and the upper part of the heatsinks. The box itself also carries the stickers with information about the memory modules that are included.
Corsair Dominator Platinum Dual-Channel DDR3 Memory Kits (Part 2)
Corsair has been one of the oldest developers of overlocker-friendly memory with records since 1994. The company has made ​​a lot of changes in its memory module designs. Some of them were the firsts in the industry while others were still exclusive.
Corsair Dominator Platinum Dual-Channel DDR3 Memory Kits (Part 1)

We are going to talk about Thecus N4200PRO’s successor – The Thecus N4800, which based on the Intel Atom 2.13GHz (Dual-Core). This NAS device is used for small and medium businesses that need centralized storage and quick response to multi-user environment.
GeForce GTX 660 Graphics Cards Roundup (Part 5)
As expected, the first GeForce GTX 660 products don’t have much difference in performance. They are 4 to 5% more powerful than the original card. Meanwhile, the ASUS GeForce GTX 660 Ti is 11 to 19% more advanced among the three models when the Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 can be just a challenge in the Extreme settings.
GeForce GTX 660 Graphics Cards Roundup (Part 4)
As usual, so as to reduce the dependence of the graphics cards performance on the overall platform speed, I overclocked our 32nm six-core CPU with the BCLK frequency set at 125MHz and “Load-Line Calibration” allowed at 4.625GHz. The processor’s Vcore was raised up to 1.49V in the mainboard BIOS.
GeForce GTX 660 Graphics Cards Roundup (Part 3)
MSI released a lot of interesting GeForce GTX 660 models. The most interesting models are the N660 Hawk (Limited District) featuring a GPU clock rate of 1085/1150MHz and the GeForce GTX 660 Twin Frozr III of today. The shining packaging with a 3-year warranty tag is really useful.

Not massively produced as EVGA, Gigabyte only released a pair of attractive GeForce GTX 660s. We will take a look at the fastest (of the two), named Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ultra Durable.
GeForce GTX 660 Graphics Cards Roundup (Part 1)
We tested the Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 graphics card from Zotac. We realized it was a good solution which eventually became widely used, its retail price fell to the recommended level ($229) and even lower. This type of price has been popular among end-users, each graphics card makers has released not only a copy of the source GeForce GTX 660 but also two or three or even eight variations so that people could flexibly choose what suits them.
CPU Deepcool FROSTWIN Cooler (Part 2)
The CPU was loaded with two consecutive LinX AVX test runs with the installation parameters as we have mentioned above. The period of time needed for the stabilization of CPU temperature between the two test runs was about 8-10 minutes. We took the highest temperature of CPU’s core to draw the result graph.
CPU Deepcool FROSTWIN Cooler (Part 1)
This cooler is the first one which has a dual-array heatsink and two fans in the under-$40 price segment. We do not discuss the mini-coolers but the fully-functional cooling systems with their overclocking capabilities. Let’s find out what they are able to do.
SilverStone Heligon HE02 CPU Cooler – An Efficient Silence From A Giant (Part 3)
First, we tested the Heligon in fanless mode with an un-overclocked CPU. It turned out that SiverStone’s huge cooler fought well with Intel Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition at 3.33 GHz with the voltage of 1.2 volts.

Intel NUC DC3217IYE - A Modest Creature Indeed
Despite the pompous name, Intel’s Next Unit of Computing (NUC) is a modest creature indeed. Measuring less than five inches square, and standing a squat 39mm tall, it’s an exceptionally compact PC that makes even Apple’s Mac mini look big and at first glance, the price appears sensational.
Apple Mac Mini - The Hardware Is As Enticing As Ever
Apple hasn’t made any aesthetic changes to its latest Mac mini, but it didn’t need to – it’s still the best-looking small-form-factor PC on the market. Instead, all Apple’s attentions are on the inside, starting with Fusion Drive – the SSD and hard disk hybrid that debuted in the 21.5in iMac (web ID: 378763).
Intel SSD 335 And Intel SSD 330 - The Development Of Inexpensive SSDs (Part 4)
The popular PCMark 7 is famous for having an individual disk subsystem benchmark. It is not an artificial test, but is based on real-life applications. This benchmark reproduces typical disk usage scenarios and measures how fast they are completed in popular applications.
Intel SSD 335 And Intel SSD 330 - The Development Of Inexpensive SSDs (Part 3)
This feature is important for testing SSDs based on SF-2281/2282 controller, which tries to compress the data before writing it into the flash-memory. So, there are two numbers in the diagrams below that reflect the maximum and minimum SSD speeds. The real-life performance of an SSD is going to be somewhere between those two numbers depending on how effective the controller data compression is.
Intel SSD 335 And Intel SSD 330 - The Development Of Inexpensive SSDs (Part 2)
The 330 series is being drawn from the market, starting at the 240GB model. The new SSD 335 series is only available with the capacity of 240GB, but the 80GB and 180GB models are also going to be present. Other capacities may also appear since the purpose of this new series is to replace the old 330 product series with various cheaper models.
Intel SSD 335 And Intel SSD 330 - The Development Of Inexpensive SSDs (Part 1)
We posted quite a lot of reviews on solid state drives based on the second-generation SandForce controller. The remaining controllers available on the market can only get jealous of its popularity, which does not even decrease by certain problems, such as its fairly imperfect reputation, not really high performance, and lack of diversity in SandForce-based products.
Samsung Ativ Smart PC Review (Part 3)
Clover Trail CPU is based on Atom 1.8 GHz, dual-core with 2 GB RAM. The similar specifications would be found on almost all tablets or hybrid laptops which are operating Windows 8. So, the performance is also the same? You’d think so, but as we discovered in other Tegra 3 tablets that we checked at the beginning of the year, many things can be different from brands to brands, even from devices to devices.
Samsung Ativ Smart PC Review (Part 2)
When we first experienced the Samsung's ATIV Smart PC, we did not have the optional keyboard dock. But finally the accessory arrived to our lap just before the holidays, so we had the opportunity to update our review. For $130, the keyboard dock buys you a nice Chiclet keyboard, a mediocre button-less track pad and two standard USB 2.0 ports.
Samsung Ativ Smart PC Review (Part 1)
Even though we've spent various previews writing about laptop-tablet hybrids running Windows 8, we've so far had a limited time actually experiencing with them. In part, that's because we've been so interested in reviewing convertible Ultrabooks, but it's also because many of the biggest-name hybrids have only just been in action.
ECS Z77H2-A2X v1.0 - Golden LGA 1155 Mainboard From The Black Series (Part 6)
We carried out our power consumption measurements using an Extech Power Analyzer 380803. This device is connected before the PSU and measures the power consumption of the entire system (without using the monitor), including the power loss that happens in the PSU itself. In the idle mode, we start the system up and wait until it stops accessing the hard disk.
ECS Z77H2-A2X v1.0 - Golden LGA 1155 Mainboard From The Black Series (Part 5)
As usual, we will compare the speeds of the mainboards in two different modes: during nominal mode and during CPU and memory overclocking. The first mode is very interesting because it shows how well the boards work in their default settings. There is a fact that most users do not tweak their system, they simply select the optimal BIOS settings and do nothing else.
ECS Z77H2-A2X v1.0 - Golden LGA 1155 Mainboard From The Black Series (Part 4)
We did not encounter any problems of any kind during the system assembly process on the ECS Z77H2-A2X (v1.0) mainboard. However, before starting our test session, we usually update the BIOS with the latest version available at the time of testing. Nevertheless, this is where such a disappointment we found: there were no newer BIOS versions available.
ECS Z77H2-A2X v1.0 - Golden LGA 1155 Mainboard From The Black Series (Part 3)
We have checked out the BIOS of Elitegroup mainbooards for quite a time, particularly in our reviews on ECS P67H2-A and P67H2-A2 mainboards. It did not leave the best impression. Even if we ignore some of the specific issues that we discovered, the overall internal organization was pretty messy, its interface was not very attractive and it is clear that it lacked user-friendliness.
ECS Z77H2-A2X v1.0 - Golden LGA 1155 Mainboard From The Black Series (Part 2)
There are two PCI Express 3.0/2.0 x16 graphics card slots, with which you can share the bandwidth and it also allows building ATI CrossFire or Nvidia SLI multi-card configurations. There are also two PCI Express 2.0 x1 and two PCI slots. It is such a pity that Elitegroup mainboards do not use color-coding structures for their connectors, as it would make it much easier to distinguish between different SATA ports.
