LCD Harness, nForce3, Moblie GPU's and other Various Case Goodies
Good afternoon everyone; Sorry about the lack of news yesterday, but my ISP was down *grumbles*. Subsequently, we have quite a bit of news for you today. So, in the interests of time, here is your weekend news...
"Today I reviewed a product from Steelpad that is supposed to improve the gaming experience. What this particular product does is hold your mouse wire at an adjustable length to keeping it out of the way. I must say that this product works well, but it doesn't seem practical and it's too expensive. If you money to spend, or want to read up on the latest in high end gaming accessories, this review is for you!"
"Case Ace offers the Gear Grip LCD Shield Harness, where a user can safely pack, secure, and protect an expensive LCD display and be ready to mobilize it anywhere."
"What made us wonder was why Gigabyte chose the lower-end version of the nF3 chipset and not the 250Gb which already incorporates some of the features for which Gigabyte has used additional controllers. For instance, the K8NSNXP provides you with a dual LAN option and Gigabyte uses an external controller for the Gigabit LAN while using the on-chip 10/100. The nForce3-250Gb provides Gigabit connectivity through the chipset eliminating the need for an external Gigabit controller on the PCI bus that can easily saturate the throughput of the PCI bus."
"The term "mcd" is a measure of luminance that is measured in candelas, or cd. For LED's, the measurement is in millicandelas, or mcd. For those of you who know, those mcd ratings I listed above are huge. 60,000 mcd? That's just sick... in a good way."
"Cooling your computer processor remains one of the most important aspects of your computer. For the most part, computer enthusiasts have two methods to pick from: air or liquid cooling. More extreme measures such as phase change cooling and the like, in our opinion, don't really count as something an enthusiast would go for, but rather something that the really hardcore would utilize. One of the latest technologies in aircooling solutions include the use of heatpipes. Many manufacturers have gone down this road with varying degrees of sucess."
"These days, there are so many mobile GPU models that it has become quite impossible to keep up with the different configurations. Therefore, we decided to compile this guide to provide an easy reference for those who are interested in comparing the specifications of the various mobile GPUs in the market as well as those already obsolescent or obsolete. We hope it will prove to be a useful reference."
"The new Matrix Orbital MX411 is a digital bay bus that incorporates a 4 line by 20 character long LCD display and provides support for temperature monitoring, fan control and programmable digital input/output (I/O). The included LCDC software is easy to setup and includes a wealth of display and control options. The MX4 series uses a USB interface and they are designed to mount in two empty 5-1/4" drive bays."
That is all for the moment my friends. I will be back of anything exciting comes in :) - Cheers
