Antec's Fusion 430 HTPC case is explored and used to build a full system. Then various parameters are measured to assess the case's functionality when it is use for different HTPC functions.
We added a new interactive charts page that allows you to compare most of Intel's mobile Core 2 Duo processors. The results can also be contrasted to those of our desktop CPU charts.
Feast your eyes on Part 4 of 6 parts in this latest Tom's Holiday Buyer's Guide, where our focus turns to interesting peripherals from Bluetooth headsets, to hard disks, graphics cards and more.
We test AMCC/3Ware, Areca and LSI Logic enterprise-grade RAID controllers for entry-level applications.
It arrived later than expected, but it is also better than expected. Check out Samsung's new hard drive family, the Spinpoint F1, which is poised to take the pole position. Is it fast enough to win?
SSD drives are coming, but RAM drives are the real thing for true enthusiasts. These things are super fast. We compare the new HyperOS RAM drive to SanDisk's SSD drive.
The second part of this article series deals with the differences between single and dual channel memory, and the performance benefits of using RAID with two or even four hard drives.
SanDisk's SSD5000 shows that flash-based drives really do offer superior performance, while consuming less power. Still, there are some drawbacks.
Storage vendors are unifying professional and semi-professional RAID controllers by supporting both SAS and SATA. We look at a set of products and their performance.
We saw what RAID 0, RAID 1 and RAID 0+1 offer in Part 1 of our RAID Charts. Now, we put RAID 5 and RAID 6 to the test.
All RAID arrays aren't created equal, and as a result you may not be able to keep using your existing configuration when you update your platform.
Computex reminded us somewhat of a car tuning show, where the focus is on customization rather than innovation. However, there were still lots of interesting things to be discovered.
Our day 3 coverage includes lots of storage products, Core 2 Quad overclocking records, HTPC cases, fancy notebooks and the second generation of Ultra-Mobile PCs.
