AMD's new sub-$100 low-power (45 W) dual core processor defines a new segment in the efficient desktop computing market. How does it compare to Intel's $100 Pentium Dual Core 2160?
DDR3 will reach higher clock speeds than DDR2, but it doesn't yet outperform high-end DDR2 modules. We look at some of the best high-grade DDR2 RAM available.
Western Digital's Scorpio is the first 250 GB notebook hard drive. We compare it to eight competing devices and rank it in our Interactive Notebook HDD Charts.
This time we analyze the impact on power consumption of RAM speed and timings, graphics card generation, hard drive type and form factor and of typical add-on cards.
You don't have to buy the latest energy-efficient PC hardware to save energy and reduce heat dissipation. Small steps already can make a difference.
We scoured our benchmark database and found the largest drives available and the best picks for budget users. The time to upgrade your hard drive is now.
Many SATA systems allow you to upgrade to RAID. We used hard drives with Intel and Nvidia chipsets to see how well RAID level migration could work. Our goal: to make storage more reliable.
The need for remote PC management has always been an issue that only increases with the size of your business. Intel wants vPro to be your perfect, OS-independent hardware-level management solution.
The first terabyte hard drive arrives with a bang: 32 MB of cache and up to 85 MB/s sequential reads sound impressive. Where does this leave the WD Raptor?
