Good evening everyone :) With the work day over, we all know what time it is. Yes, news time but it's also the start of the weekend. So, to kick things off the right way we have prepared another hefty does of juice for your reading enjoyment. Go grab a glass and help yourself, it's open bar tonight...
"The Soltek SL-K8TPro-939 met our expectations and delivered an experience indicative of our past experiences of Solteks' products. The price to performance ratio of these boards just can not be beat. At the same price point most of the other boards lack SATA Raid, while this may not be used by everyone it is a feature that some may grow into. The stock performance was on par with other VIA K8T800 Pro based Motherboards and the overclocking ability outshined that of the ABIT AV8."
"Bluetake BT400 G3 Bluetooth Headset Review Bluetake managed to get quite a few sites to review this bluetooth headset. This review of the BT400 G3 tries to answer if "normal" consumers (non-geeks) be able to work with it."
"Sapphire is one of the bigger players in the gamut of ATI partners featuring a full repertoire of ATI R420- based graphics cards. We took the PCIe version of their X800XT and ran it through the paces of a few benchmarks in comparison to the direct competitor - the GeForce 6800 GT - but in the end it came down to DOOM3 vs. FarCry. Granted that the GeForce 6800GT is less expensive, it does not have the multimedia capabilities enabled by the Theatre chip that is no longer reserved to the All-In-Wonder but also on the XT and even a few selected "Pro" versions of the X800 series. Taking everything into account, we still had to toss a coin to declare a winner."
"...I have to admit I was surprised. In apps that are memory bound, the 655TX appears to be faster than Canterwood. The Springdale-PE on the DFI, backed up by a capable PAT BIOS means that we were emulating Canterwood. It has lower memory access latency, measured by Sciencemark, and it appears to have a touch more available bandwidth too. It's not much, but it's enough. With Canterwood the performance champion for P4, it appears we have a new champion when your app is memory bound in any way. Raw CPU performance is identical; 655TX ran the 3.2GHz Northwood without issue."
"We would like to introduce to you a top-end graphics solution from ASUS based on ATI RADEON X800XT graphics chip and boasting tremendous speed and gorgeous accessories bundle. Is this the absolute perfection? Find out the answer to this question in our new review."
"After reviewing the NZXT Guardian, which was stunning, we received word that NZXT would be releasing a new line of cases in the near future. Well, after months of waiting, the case is here! Today we have the honored privilege of presenting to you the Nemesis Elite from NZXT."
"If you're on a budget and require an all-in-one integrated PC that can play the occasional game at decent frame rates or watch DVDs, ATI's RADEON 9100 PRO IGP Pentium 4 chipset can't be beat. We rounded up six motherboards based on this solution and compare which should be your choice."
Go start the weekend friends, we all know they don't last long ;) - Cheers
