Re: Seagate Momentus XT 750GB Hybrid Drive Review (ST750LX00

I'm not sure I'm convinced. The whole idea behind the hybrid drive is that the drive can cache frequently used files. As capacity increases, the amount of data that needs to be cached also increases.

I would like to see the benchmarks of this drive after using it for a few months.

Re: SilverSton​e SST-EC03B USB 3.0 PCI Express Card Review

The reviewer is right. I don't have any 3.5" bays in my modern rigs. Unfortunately, that makes this product pretty much useless to me.

That's a sexy rig though.

Re: ASUS Crosshair V Formula 'Bulldozer' Motherboard Review

I would have loved to see how far it could overclock that 1100T so we could compare it to other boards.

Looks good though.

It sounds like the best think Corsair did to these modules is the blue heatspreader!

Re: Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 1600 CL9 Memory Kit Review

Wow, $52. I have set of these and I love the blue. are you running them at 1T or 2T? I've got my Corsair XMS CMX4GX3M2A1600C8s running at 1600/8-8-8-24 T1 unganged in my Giga785 board so I assume you can do the same if these are even better. I was not able to tighten these down to Cas 8 with any st...

Re: Crucial Ballistix 8GB DDR3 2000MHz CL9 Memory Kit Review

Yeah, at least in terms of memory overclocking, an AMD system has better flexibility than an Intel Sandy Bridge system due to the locked bus speed. If we could have bumped up the bus clock a few MHz, we would have more memory speed options.

Re: Corsair 16GB Flash Voyager USB 3.0 Review

Cool product. I'm glad to see some innovation. However, in my experience, the write speed is the one that needs to be improved more than read speed. When I think back on the times that I'm sitting at my PC, impatiently watching the progress meter, it's always when I'm trying to dump a few files onto...

Good for futuremark.

I'd rather the product be delayed a bit than release a sketchy benchmark.

Re: CyberLink Announces “MediaEspresso 6” Media Converter

Does it use cuda or opencl to accelerate the encode?

Or, if not that, does it even use 8 CPU threads or more?
