Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB DDR5 Flex Edition Video Card Review @ Hi Tech Legion
The Sapphire Radeon HD 7950 3GB DDR5 Flex Edition is Sapphire's most powerful Flex card to date. The 7950 Flex Edition negates the need for a Display Port monitor for Eyefinity support. On top of that, Sapphire provides their proven Dual-X cooler and a factory overclock. Core clock speed has been set to 860MHz, while the memory is still 3GB DDR5 and clocked at 1250MHz (5000MHz effective). The 7950 uses the newest AMD GCN 28nm chip with 1792 stream processors and features all of the same AMD technologies. The interface features the newest PCI Express 3.0. The 7900 Series is the first GPU that can simultaneously output multiple and discrete audio streams via HDMI and DisplayPort Output. Sapphire also includes their latest TriXX utility for monitoring and performance tuning.
Western Digital VelociRaptor 1TB 10K RPM Hard Disk Drive Review @ TweakTown
Western Digital's Raptor was a big hit with enthusiasts until the dawn of the SSD. Can the new 1TB release resurrect this species or will solid state be an extinction level event for this iconic product?
Team Group Xtreem LV 8GB 2400MHz DDR3 Review @ Vortez
Today we will be taking a look at Team Group's Xtreem LV product range - namely the blisteringly fast 2400MHz DDR3 kit. With CAS timings of 9-10-10-28 @ 1.65v we are hoping for good things from our review sample today. The ambitious out there will be keen to know how this kit will compare to the now common 1600MHz kit. Will there be much of a performance increase? Let's find out!
