Intel’s Next Unit Of Computing Review - The Future Desktop Or Another Nettop? (Part 5)
Compact size is not the only one advantage for systems like Intel NUC. There is another crucial feature closely related to the first one: they are amazingly energy-efficient. The DC3217IYE discussed in this review uses a CPU owning an integrated graphics core and 17W TDP only, and the power supply unit for this computer is just 65 W.
Intel’s Next Unit Of Computing Review - The Future Desktop Or Another Nettop? (Part 4)
For comparison, we decided to use a Zotac ZBOX Nano with similar geometrical parameters, particularly the flagship AD12 PLUS model. This minimized computer mostly shares the same size (127x127x45mm), but is built on AMD Brazos 2.0 platform with an 18W dual-core E2-1800 processor working at 1.7GHz frequency and equipped with an internal Radeon HD 7340 graphics core.

The DC3217IYE processor works at 1.8 GHz frequency and its core voltage varies between 0.75-0.85V. Plus, it is a fully-functional Core i3 CPU from the Ivy Bridge generation. Having two cores, it supports Hyper-Threading technology, and shines with a 3MB L3 cache. Moreover, the NUC CPU modification has the most innovative Intel HD Graphics 4000 graphics core with 16 executing units and 1.05 GHz maximum frequency.
Intel’s Next Unit Of Computing Review - The Future Desktop Or Another Nettop? (Part 2)
We know Intel mainly as a manufacturer of processors, mainboards and SSDs. However, NUC is a mostly complete computing system with not only a mainboard and a CPU plus extra controllers, but also a system case. In other words, this is a classical bare system, in which the user must add system memory, disk drive and an extendable card if necessary.
Intel’s Next Unit Of Computing Review - The Future Desktop Or Another Nettop? (Part 1)
Intel decided to make an effort the market of ultra-compact desktop systems. And they immediately turned up with a unique product: a miniature system case with only 12x11x4cm size based on Core-i3 processor. I
Synology 4-Bay NAS: Three Models Review (Part 5)
Synology NASes are renowned as trendy products, so three products that we checked have left a really good impression. They feature by its durable cases and efficient coolers. They are easy to use even for inexperienced users. Diverse functions of the firmware is figured out because the truth is that the electrical installation instruction is about 200 pages long and does not include all of the available software.
Synology 4-Bay NAS: Three Models Review (Part 4)
Computing performance is one of the most important parameter of NAS, but it should not be overemphasized. A modern NAS is a multi-functional device and very hard to modify a practical using situation in the laboratory. The 4-disk NAS from Synology that we tended to measure the standards are high-performance products, so we would carry out traditional tests beside the one-user working mode.
Synology 4-Bay NAS: Three Models Review (Part 3)
The sinology NASes used to require you to install their DSM basis software by the Assistant utility. Therefore, you have to have the compatible OS in order to run that utility, which is not always convenient. Nowadays, each NAS has a web server for the initial setting up.
Synology 4-Bay NAS: Three Models Review (Part 2)
This model is equipped in a quite new case which was first introduced in the previous NAS of Synology. It is optimized for lower noisiness, using rubber pads for HDD and the front panel. The case is 20x23.3x16.5 cm in size. Most of its exterior panel is made of black plastic but the rear is made of metal.
Synology 4-Bay NAS: Three Models Review (Part 1)
Synology offers three models of the 4-bay network storage unit designed in traditional format and targets at different market segments. They are DS413j, DS413 and DA412+. We plan to introduce all of these three models to you in this review.
Scythe Grand Kama Cross Rev.B Microprocessor Cooler Review (Part 3)
Frankly, we didn’t expect Scythe Grand Kama Cross Rev. B to do so well. Not only did it perform better than other well-renowned coolers in efficiency respect, but it proved to be better than the leading products in the same price segment.
Scythe Grand Kama Cross Rev.B Microprocessor Cooler Review (Part 2)
To prepare for today’s tests we overclocked six-core processor with the clock operating speed set at 125 MHz, the multiplier at 34x and “load line calibration” allowed at 4.25 GHz. The nominal processor Vcore was increased to 1.35 V in the motherboard’s BIOS. “Turbo Boost” tech was disabled during this testing process, and Hyper-Threading tech was used to increase the heat dissipation.
Scythe Grand Kama Cross Rev.B Microprocessor Cooler Review (Part 1)
The second edition of the flagship Japanese Scythe Grand Kama Cross cooling device will bring us an exciting surprise underneath its case. Today, we will lift the veil of secrecy to see what it is.
ASRock Z77 Extreme3 LGA 1155 Mainboard - Simple, Reasonable And Extraordinary (Part 6)
We performed our power consumption measurements by an Extech Power Analyzer 380803. This device is pre-connected the PSU and measures the power of the entire system (without the screen), including the power loss that occurs in the PSU itself. In the idle mode we start the system up and wait until it stops accessing the hard disk.
ASRock Z77 Extreme3 LGA 1155 Mainboard - Simple, Reasonable And Extraordinary (Part 5)
As usual we are planning to compare the motherboards speeds in two different modes: in nominal mode and during overclocking CPU and memory. The first mode is interesting because it shows how well the motherboards work in their default settings.
ASRock Z77 Extreme3 LGA 1155 Mainboard - Simple, Reasonable And Extraordinary (Part 4)
As usual, the test assembly on ASRock Z77 Extreme3 runs smoothly and without any problems. After that, we also have absolutely no problems with the board. I can say that it was a very easy, relaxed and positive experience.
ASRock Z77 Extreme3 LGA 1155 Mainboard - Simple, Reasonable And Extraordinary (Part 3)
We are quite familiar to ASRock’s UEFI BIOS and have pointed out many times that their interfaces were very convenient to work with, and the functions were more than sufficient for successful overclocking and system refining.
ASRock Z77 Extreme3 LGA 1155 Mainboard - Simple, Reasonable And Extraordinary (Part 2)
You can clearly see some similarities in the outta look and functionality of ASRock Z77 Extreme3 and ASRock Z77 Extreme4 motherboards, but most of them are the results of both motherboards made by the same manufacturer. It is totally not fair to say that ASRock Z77 Extreme3 is a simplified version of ASRock Z77 Extreme4, because it has its own unique layout.
ASRock Z77 Extreme3 LGA 1155 Mainboard - Simple, Reasonable And Extraordinary (Part 1)
The main characteristic of this motherboard is that it’s unlike any other board out there, it doesn’t have any unneeded feature. There is no “excess” additional controller, no button, no decorative metal plate, but the things essential for efficient operations are present. We can point out 2 or 3 things, but otherwise, this motherboard has a bunch of good advantages, like other ASRock’s products.
Group Test: AMD FX-8350, FX-8320, FX-6300 And FX-4300 - All Vishera Processors (Part 6)
The flagship FX-8350 really looks interesting. It is remarkably faster than the previous generation AMD processors and can compete successfully against top LGA 1155 Ivy Bridge CPUs in case of multi-threaded load.
Group Test: AMD FX-8350, FX-8320, FX-6300 And FX-4300 - All Vishera Processors (Part 5)
To understand more about the power consumption of all contemporary processors in the new AMD FX series, we carried out a round of specific tests. The new digital PSU from Corsair – AX1200i – allowed monitoring electrical power that was consumed and produced, which we used positively through our power consumption tests.
Group Test: AMD FX-8350, FX-8320, FX-6300 And FX-4300 - All Vishera Processors (Part 4)
The processor performance in encrypting tasks is measured by using a benchmark of the well-known TrueCrypt utility which uses AES-Twofish-Serpent “triple” encryption. I have to say that this utility not only loads any number of cores plus works effectively, but also supports the specific AES structure.
Group Test: AMD FX-8350, FX-8320, FX-6300 And FX-4300 - All Vishera Processors (Part 3)
As usual, we used Bapco SYSmark 2012 suite to estimate the processor performance in common-purpose tasks. It emulated the usage models in popular office, designed digital content and processed applications.
Group Test: AMD FX-8350, FX-8320, FX-6300 And FX-4300 - All Vishera Processors (Part 2)
The six-core Vishera FX-6300 can be formed from a full-feature semiconductor die by disabling some of 4 dual-core models. Regarding clock frequency, this processor is similar to FX-8320. This six-core processor’s nominal frequency is set at 3.5GHz, but in case of lower number of operating threads, it can be raised up to 4.1GHz.
Group Test: AMD FX-8350, FX-8320, FX-6300 And FX-4300 - All Vishera Processors (Part 1)
The introduction of AM3+ Socket with Piledrive board structure inspired AMD fans. However, lately, we have relied on the opinions about observing results from hi-end models in the new AMD FX series. We are inclined to fill this gap and carry out a research about detailed performance of all eight-core, six-core and four-core Vishera processors.
AMD And Nvidia Based Products In The New Benchmark (Part 3)
As expected, the Ice Storm could not reveal the full potentials of most graphics cards we tested, because their performance is limited by the CPU and platform. Although we used a six-core CPU, high-end cards which offer the same performance, while the GeForce GTX 690 dual-processor is a bit faster than the Radeon HD 7970 single processor.
AMD And Nvidia Based Products In The New Benchmark (Part 2)
As you may have noted, 10 out of 12 graphics has increased the default frequency. However, we decided not to lower them to the nominal reference value, because the different performance will be very clear, and besides, most of the graphics cards being sold are those with the speeds that have been increased slightly.
AMD And Nvidia Based Products In The New Benchmark (Part 1)
For 13 years, Futuremark Corporation with headquarters in Finland is developing and publishing software for graphics performance benchmark and for launching the new-generation game machine (in addition to working with some other popular benchmark testers like the famous PCMark).
State Of The Art Standards (Part 2)
Each link extending from the PCIe hub corresponds to a physical slot, but the slots come in different form factors that support different numbers of lanes. The smallest PCIe link supports a single lane, which consists of two differential signaling pairs, one for sending data and the other for receiving data.
State Of The Art
PCI’s shared bandwidth problem also contributed to the rise of AGP, or the Accelerated Graphics Port, also developed by Intel. Like the proposed PCIe, AGP was a point-to-point connection that was dedicated to the graphics subsystem. PCI-based graphics cards were required to copy textures from system memory to the graphics cards memory.

MSI Z77 MPOWER Mainboard - Military Class Burn-in Test Passed (Part 4)
In our MSI Z77-GD65 mainboard review, we were pleased seeing a new parameter called “Enhanced Turbo” in BIOS. This parameter enables this specific processor‘s clock frequency multiplier to rise to the maximum under any type of load, as allowed by Intel Turbo Boost.
MSI Z77 MPOWER Mainboard - Military Class Burn-in Test Passed (Part 3)
I have to mention that we went through a similar two-step re-flashing process on other manufacturers’ boards, Asus, for instance. However, there’re some crucial differences among them. First, user doesn’t have to choose between two options that eliminate each other – update for BIOS or for BIOS and ME.
MSI Z77 MPOWER Mainboard - Military Class Burn-in Test Passed (Part 2)
The mainboard can save up to 6 full BIOS settings in “Overclocking Profiles” sub-section. It allows saving and re-downloading setting profiles from external media. A little inconvenience is that you couldn’t realize which setting has been used when looking at the list.
MSI Z77 MPOWER Mainboard - Military Class Burn-in Test Passed (Part 1)
This mainboard shows off many upsides. Some are similar to other typical Micro-Star mainboards, some are exclusive. However, they are quite hard to work with and require your good patience.
