ATI has gone and cut their latest 40nm GPU in half again, given it a new name, and released a brand new video card that smacks the competition around.  Just four months after the release of their first 5xxx series video card (and two million unit sales later...), ATI is releasing the sixth iteration of DX11-capable hardware.  The new card uses the exact same architecture as the HD58xx and HD57xx series; ATI basically cut the Juniper chip to get hardware specs somewhere below the HD5750. How far below is what we need to find out and Benchmark Reviews is pleased to offer you the results of our extensive testing.

The LED TV Series 6 is not a true LED TV but only a backlit one with a standard LCD display, as opposed to CCFL backlit LCD TVs. While not a true LED TV, it is still very stunning. For the most part, colors are more vivid and the picture is more uniform, especially in black scenes. Even though the UN46B6000 doesn't have the best viewing angle and costs much more than a CCFL backlit LCD TV, you're spending money on a power conscious TV that delivers a phenomenal picture you can brag about.

Ever since the Apple iPhone was released on June 29, 2007, there have been a ton of accessories to hit the marketplace to go along with it. Recently, a relative newcomer to the iPhone accessory genre - Nitrox - was kind enough to send us a few of their current offerings for evaluation. In this review we take a look at the iConn+ iPhone case with battery.

"This time we'd like show you a cheaper Socket 1156 motherboard. It has a reasonable expansion capacity, an unexpectedly complex and high-quality power supply system, and a basic cooling system which is sufficient though. Still, it's a full-size ATX motherboard with S/PDIF outputs and eSATA ports on the rear panel, meaning you won't have to buy additional accessories."

"Today we’re looking at the XFX Radeon HD5770 1GB graphics card. This card is part of ATI’s new DirectX 11 range of cards, featuring the latest stream technology, ATI Eyefinity and giving fantastic results whilst maintaining a low power output with only one PCI-Express power connector."

All in all, Lian Li PC-8N is a high quality medium range box which offers great materials, low weight and an excellent finish. It has some good details like the anti-vibration system for the hard disks; the fans and their anti dust filters and grids… but I can’t help wishing it had a decent cable management system and that the installation was tool free. If it had those two features it would be a practically perfect case. Still the case is quite spacious and the fans are quiet which lifts the overall score somewhat.   The Lian Li PC-8N is not a cheap case; it goes for around 100 bucks at Newegg. The main reason for its rather high price tag is of course the aluminum and if you want a case in this material you will have to put up this much cash...

There is no shortage of DDR3 memory in the marketplace these days, and it's priced lower than DDR2 in many cases. As always though, the choices to be made when selecting RAM for a system can be confusing. There are a lot of kits currently available that are "optimized" for Intel i5 and i7 systems, and now OCZ has released two new low voltage kits that are designed to complement the AMD Black Edition series of CPUs. Both sets of DIMMs are specified at 1600 MHz; one at CL7 timings, and the other at CL8. They are both rated to run these speeds at 1.65v. In this article Benchmark Reviews will examine how a dual-channel kit of CL8 modules, optimized for an AMD 790FX platform, performs at a variety of speeds and timings.

"AMD within the past year has released graphics cards in which not only compete with Nvidia’s price scheme but also obliterate Nvidia’s high end gaming graphics cards. So it is with no surprise that AMD continues to clear a path for the budget conscience user. AMD within the past year have proven themselves very successful with their 4000 series, as well as their 5000 series, which leads the market in performance to this day."

"Touch screen phones are hitting the market left and right these days, but not all of them can provide the performance, features and ease of use that we all want and need. This LG Chocolate Touch VX8575 cell phone that I got for my wife was very cool at first but then got really frustrating really fast."

When you think about a webcam, what comes to mind? I know most of us will recognise the typical web camera’s that have become very popular over the years. Basically consisting of a small bubble shaped camera on top of a small, wobbly, unstable stand. The balancing act of having the camera on top of your monitor, or on a stack of CD’s and books to try and get that perfect angle is much more than just a hassle. Though fortunately our good friends at IPEVO have come up with a nifty, possibly Pixar inspired webcam that takes care of all these problems, and offers much, much more! Going by the name of “Point 2 View” (P2V) this USB camera lets you do exactly that, point it where ever you like, to show just about anything, at almost any angle possible!

HTPC is something that is getting into every house these days, but what if you don't want a big computer by your TV? There are several small media players on the market that can stream the content to your TV so you don't have to have a bulky computer hooked up to it. Patriot Box Office is one of these devices and we recieved one of them for a review, we are going to see how this device handles various formats such as; images and music so stick around to see what we think about it.

iXBT Labs Review: DFI LANParty DK 790X-M2RS Motherboard

Excerpt: "This motherboard produces mixed impressions. On the one hand, we have found out that modern products from DFI, including the mid-end DK series, still offer high technical quality. On the other hand, if the company decided to cater for overclockers, they should have done it properly."

We have seen many factory-overclocked cards from different vendors, but most of these cards just push the GPU/MEM clocks using reference design hardware. Once in a while, a cards pop up like this Gigabyte SOC card which deviates from the group and packs a whole lot more punch then what other vendors can offer.

"Being a tech-savvy computer user in today’s society generally involves reinstalling your own Operating System and / or another persons. Ok… So I’ve been working with computers ever since I was about 7 years old. I remember the first thing my dad introduced me to was MS-DOS… Ok at 7 years old, let’s be honest, MS-DOS is not that impressive, but that is not why I would spent hours of my time on the computer."

AMD Phenom II Black Edition CPU's have been a popular choice for enthusiasts and budget-conscious overclockers lately, and Benchmark Reviews decided it was time to focus on AMD in one of our Best CPU Cooler Performance series. In this preview article, Benchmark Reviews tests several CPU coolers on the AM3 socket for the AMD Phenom-II platform. An overclocked AMD Phenom II X4 965 "Black Edition" processor was used (original 125W version), and given a heart-warming 1.55 volts to the vCore so it could reach 4000MHz (4GHz) stable. The heat produced at 1.55V caused at least one product to earn high marks in our tests, while another fell so far below respectible performance that it pains us to expose it.

We're going to take a look at the ASUS EEE PC 701SD; a "classic" netbook being sold as a refurb by Geeks.com. While the EEE line-up is now a few years old, it is still extremely popular. Newer models might offer better specifications, but they will also come with higher price tags that will put them in the ball park with some cheap laptops.

With the launch of Clarkdale by Intel, they have finally released a Nehalem for the masses, the Core i3 and i5 variations with integrated graphics are a direct competitor to the market segment currently held by AMD Phenom and Athlon CPUs. In this article we compare the performance of the IGP on the Intel Core i5 661 to and AMD system with 785G chipset.

Own a Mac, but require the use of Windows from time to time? With today's robust virtualization solutions, there are far better alternatives than rebooting with Bootcamp or using emulation. VMware's Fusion 3 is one of these, and we put it to the test to see if it's worth its $80 price tag, and also whether or not free alternatives are the more attractive choice.
