AOpen GeForce FX 5900XT Review
Long time no see ;) I am back to inform you that we've just posted a review of AOpen's GeForce FX 5900 XT. Like some other recently released 5900 XTs, this model from AOpen comes pre-overclocked, with a core clock speed that's a full 30MHz higher than NVIDIA's recommendations. It's got a custom cooling solution, a decent bundle, and it's also priced to sell. Click the link above to check it out, or, if you are lazy: Click Here
"Leadtek is one of the oldest NVIDIA board partners around. They actually have been working with NVIDIA since the GeForce 256 back with their WinFast GeForce256 DDR. We at Bjorn3D are always excited when we get a board from Leadtek since they have always offered a good board with custom cooling and a decent bundle."
"From the write transfer graph using Verbatim 4x DVD-R disc, the write technique for TDK 1280B is slightly better. This is because the write speed jumped to 6x and 8x at around 350MB and 1.6GB marks respectively, compare to 880N at around 850MB and 2.2GB mark. As the result, the average speed for TDK 1280B is 7.08x while 880N is 6.81x. In our actual burning test, TDK 1280B took 9min 30s while 880N took 9min 20s. Although 1280B is slightly slower for DVD-R, their different is less than 2%. "
"Bawlshas been around for years at lans, and you may have seen their giant Bawls bottle on a trailer at Quakecon. Well Bawls hasn't been standing still, and they have introduced a sugar free version recently. First up the classic Bawls Guarana. Upon first sip it tastes a bit similar to Sprite. It is fruity, sweet, with a bit of a kick going down. The taste is definitely agreeable, and you can't argue with 32 grams of sugar and as much caffeine as a cup of coffee will keep you going. 35 grams of Sodium puts it second on the list. With 10 ounces it is on the small side compared to normal soft drinks."
"When you hit a snag overclocking your GeCube or GigaCube Radeon 9600 Pro/XT's GPU and memory chips, what do you do? Better cooling will help but have you also considered volt modding the Radeon 9600 Pro/XT?"
"With Bluetooth slowly gaining popularity, more and more electronic devices are incorporating the standard. One problem with bluetooth devices is the range. Typical Bluetooth devices can link up together between 10-30 meters depending on conditions. Today we take a look at Zonet's ZUB6100 Bluetooth USB Adapter that has Class 1 RF Output Power, capable of a range of 100 Meters."
Time for me to run, I will "see" you later :) - Cheers
