AMD Radeon HD 6870 & 6850



AMD solely launched its third-generation 40nm GPU, but here is very little extra in stipulations of architecture compared to the 5000 Series. To add to the confusion, the extra cards are in fact closer in performance to the Radeon HD 5830 and 5770 than the Cypress cards with which these cards share a suffix. You read aptly:
The Radeon HD 5850 and 5870 will go one better than the wet-behind-the-ears Radeon HD 6870 and 6850, correspondingly. Read on to discover made known how AMD managed to depression the fee of performance graphics cards Lacking a go to meet your maker lessen or extra architecture.The GPU inside the 6870 and 6850 consists of 1.7 billion transistors, which is close to semi a billion fewer than the 5870GPU. Die size has furthermore slimmed from Cypress’ 334mm2 to 255mm2, which enables AMD to crank made known more 6870 GPUs for every wafer. AMD’s secret to maintaining virtually 5870 performance with 25% fewer ICs is basic timer. The Radeon HD 6870 and 6850 be inflicted with 900MHz and 775MHz cores, correspondingly. Both GPUs be inflicted with a 256-bit reminiscence automobile, but AMD fit the clocks by 1,050MHz pro the 6870 and 1,000MHz pro the 6850. Load/idle board power pro the 6870 and 6850 are 151W/ 19W and 127W/19W, correspondingly.
Architecturally, AMD’s engineers effectively took 25% of the horses dyed-in-the-wool to Cypress’ compute/shader/texture performance and hitched them as a replacement for to a rasterization/ tessellation/ROP wagon, docile better real-world gaming performance. The SIMD engines found in the flagship Radeon HD 5870 return virtually unchanged in the Barts XT and Pro chips, which be inflicted with 14 and 12 SIMD engines Correspondingly, pro 1,120 and 960 spill processors all. The single real alteration, however, is with the intention of all Of the extra SPs is thumbs down longer competent of FP64 calculations, which by no means occur into mess about with 3D workloads, So gamers won’t notice the omission. The more noteworthy changes came to the tessellation element, which is currently competent of roughly twice the performance of the Cypress-based cards. The graphics engine
Furthermore has a following rasterizer, which keeps the GPU’s horses fed and watered. These cards furthermore support AMD’s extra Morphological Anti-Aliasing mode, which performs fullscene anti-aliasing with a reduced amount of frame rate Penalty compared to super-sampling. We tested the Radeon HD 6870 and 6850 hostile to Evga’s GeForce GTX 460 SuperClocked Edition, which got a $20 fee graze on the eve of AMD’s launch. Inside the DirectX 9 Left 4 Dead 2, AMD’s extra cards surpassed the mildly overclocked GTX 460 by more than 20fps (for the 6870) and 9fps (for the 6850). The DX11 performance was significantly closer, with the 460 besting the 6850 in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat. The more tessellation-intensive Aliens against. Predator sample seems to act of kindness AMD’s hardware, which speaks frankly to the advancements made in the Barts GPU. AMD has a winner on its hands, but Nvidia’s price-slashed GTX 460 and 470 are more striking than always. The price/ performance battle is close, but AMD gets the okay at this time. But even if AMD’s parade was moistened by Nvidia’s fee graze, gamers in the promote pro a extra graphics license occur made known the ultimate winners.

Xigmatek Utgard



If you look at the Xigmatek Utgard’s features and specifications, they read like those of an expensive chassis from a Tier 1 manufacturer. The Utgard has an abundance of front-panel I/O connectors, a
built-in fan controller, mesh front and top bezels, and a mostly tool-less design. The interior of the case is even painted black to match the exterior. But the Utgard is actually tied for the least expensive offering
in the group at $59.
Obviously, for under 60 bucks, the Utgard doesn’t have quite the build quality of the Pinnacle 24 or Silverstone FT02, but for the money, this case is great. There are numerous drive bays and plenty of pass-throughs to facilitate cable management. The Utgard is relatively quiet, and its performance was
decent. If you ask us, the Utgard looks pretty good, too. Users on a budget should give the Xigmatek
Utgard a serious look—this case is a heck of a value.

Rosewill Armor


Despite being one of the more affordable cases in this roundup, the Rosewill Armor is fully loaded and actually packs an uncommon feature found in one other case in this roundup.
The Armor is a midtower design, with roughly 80% of its panels made from a metal mesh that allows for easy airflow into the case. Its lighted, red cooling fans, including a large 200mm side-panel fan, are relatively quiet, and the Armor is a mostly tool-less design, which makes for quick and easy assembly. The motherboard tray isn’t removable, but it does have an 80mm fan mounted within the tray itself, which circulates air behind the motherboard. The fan’s position is roughly behind the CPU socket area on most standard ATX motherboards. This is a nice feature that should help keep CPU temperatures down.
Aesthetically, the Rosewill Armor has a little bit of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde going on (which isn’t a bad thing here). With its lighting turned off, the Armor looks somewhat conservative, with clean lines and an
all-black exterior. Turn on the lighting, though, and the case is certainly an attention grabber.

Silverstone FT02




Silverstone has been making first-class PC enclosures since the company was founded back in 2003, and the FT02 is no exception. Borrowing an interesting design element from Silverstone’s unique Raven
RV01, the Silverstone FT02 is the only case in the roundup to feature a 90-degree motherboard mounting design that literally turns the internals of a system on its side. With the FT02, the motherboard mounts to the chassis in such a way that its I/O panel sits at the top of the case, where cables can be connected and hidden by a panel along the top. Assembling a system inside the FT02 can seem a little weird at first, but there’s really nothing too unusual to consider once the mobo is mounted.
The Silverstone FT02 has very clean lines, with curved corners that are easy on the eyes. Build quality and attention to detail are excellent. The case even has sound-dampening material on its side panels to minimize vibration noise. At $239, the FT02 is one of the more expensive offerings in the group, but this case is worth the investment. It’s relatively quiet, performs well, and looks great.

Do You oWn an iPod Touch? Te pipe dream of having a contract uninhibited, data no more than iPhone is flnally real, recognition To Sprint’s latest Peel device.Tough iPod Touch owners still possibly will not be able to tie to AT&T’s 3G clear Labor, they will be able to plug the device into Sprint’s.

Fashionable standard november, Sprint began promotion a gizmo called the Peel on behalf of $80. Te Peel, manufactured by ZTe, is a rationale on behalf of moment and third generation iPod Touch media players so as to connects to Sprint’s interact and
Serves as a Wi Fi hotspot on behalf of  up to two procedure (telephone services are not existing through the Peel, however). To accompany the Peel, Sprint is ofering a month by month (no contract) 1GB data diagram on behalf of $30 for each month.

Te Peel does not require users to install several sofiware in order to depletion it, and it is compatible with Windows 7, Windows Vista,Windows XP, and mac oS X operating systems. Te Peel and ofers innovative WeP security on behalf of its hotspot functionality.
To egg on iPod Touch owners to go the Peel a trial run, Sprint is together with a 30 time nix duty,
Money back pledge: Within 30 days of purchasing the Peel, users can return the hardware and be
Reimbursed on behalf of the procure value as well as on behalf of the initiation fee. Sprint will and surrender the restocking fee and refund the important monthly service charge.
“When combined with Sprint’s 3G interact, ZTe Peel turns an iPod Touch from a portable device partial by the availability of Wi Fi to a mobility tool uninhibited to browse the Web and depletion applications anytime, several Anywhere while on Sprint’s 3G interact,” assumed Sprint’s VP of upshot development Fared Adib, in a statement. Sprint is promotion the Peel in its retail gather locations, as well as unswervingly on its Web put. And in rationale you are feeling wary of Sprint’s service, commentary so as to in PCWorld’s clear labor tests, conducted in beforehand 2010 in 13 major cities across the united States . Sprint’s interact earned admirable characters on behalf of its reliability.

Memory Viper Xtreme 4GB (PX534G2000ELK)


The highest attraction of Patriot Memory’s Recently released line of Viper Xtreme Remembrance kits is its further heatsink design. The further Viper Extreme kits undergo much Heavier and thicker aluminum heatsinks, Multipart with copper reheat plates with the aim of introduce Wavy fins along the top. The put an end to consequence is A better-performing heatsink that’s able to More quickly absorb and dissipate reheat. Patriot’s Viper Xtreme DDR3 kits Are to be had in capacities ranging from 4GB to 12GB, with rated frequencies of 1,600MHz or 2,000MHz. The kit I tested, Mold PX534G2000ELK, boasts a 4GB Facility (2x 2GB, dual channel) with a rated Swiftness of 2,000MHz. It besides ropes XMP profiles used for at ease

Configuration on compatible motherboards And latencies of 9-10-9-27 by the side of 1.65V. Performance of the Patriot kit was Quite worthy. According to SiSoft Sandra, Bandwidth hovered around the 20.5GBps
Mark, which is important used for a dual-channel kit. A low-res Crysis yardstick yielded frame Charge perfectly north of 211fps.
Because the highest introduce of this further Remembrance is its heatsink design, I besides checked
Temperatures under various conditions and Came away impressed. When running by the side of a Chock-full 2,000MHz, with rebuff other cooling,

The hotness of the most modern part of the Remembrance peaked by the side of solitary 48.5 degrees Celsius Under a sustained load, which was perfectly melt To the bit. With an on the go remembrance cooler In place, temps peaked by the side of solitary 33.1 C. The Floor line: This remembrance runs cool.
At a little above $150 used for a 4GB kit, Patriot’s Viper Xtreme Series remembrance isn’t Stingy, but it is worth the further investment If you’re in the marketplace used for a high-quality Remembrance kit.
