Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 840 Dual Core Processor

Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 840 Dual Core Processor

Tech Report has reviewed the first dual-core processor from Intel: the Intel Pentium Extreme Edition 840 Dual Core Processor.

The 840 is Intel's current flagship desktop processor featuring a pair of Prescott 3.2GHz Pentium 4 cores each with 1MB of L2 cache, and buying one will hit your wallet for a hefty $999.

Is it worth that major moolah?, the answer is yes if you need speed and your applications support threading, but try running older non-threading applications and you will be left in the dust compared to a good Athlon 64.

Power over Ethernet

power over ethernet POET 6000

DSP Design has unveiled the first PC that is powered through a standard ethernet (CAT5) cable.

The POET 6000 is less than an inch thick, silent, runs windows XP from a flash drive, has a touch screen, uses only 13w of power, and in our opinion would be perfect as a media center extender & web browser in your kitchen/bedroom etc.

AMD Alchemy Processor for PMPs

AMD Alchemy Processor for PMPs

AMD has announced a new range of processors designed specifically for personal media players (PMPs).

The Alchemy chips have processor speeds of 333-500MHz and are optimized for low power consumption, and playback of video at 720 by 480 pixels.

This means that PMPs don't need a seperate graphics processor and will be capable of resizing video on the fly at resolutions of up to 1024x768.

AMD also announced that the new chips are compatible with TivoToGo so you should soon be able to buy a device you can plug into your network and copy across a couple of show to watch on the train or plane (but please not in your car if you are driving).

Sparkle GeForce 6600GT Review

Sparkle GeForce 6600GT Video Card

We bought a new Dell PC recently that was a great bargain, offered all the latest technology, but its gaming was very poor due to it coming with a basic Radeon X300 graphics card.

To replace the card we had two choices, spend $400+ on a top of the range Radeon X800/X850 or GeForce 6800 card, or keep the budget more sensible and get a mid-range card for around $200 such as a Radeon X600 or GeForce 6600 card.

We wanted a card that would handle the latest games like Doom 3 and Half-Life 2 at a good resolution (1280x1024) with high graphics settings, and after researching we bought a Sparkle GeForce 6600GT graphics card from Directron for $207.

How did the card perform, and how much did it improve over the 16377 Aquamark3 benchmark score we got with the old X300 card? Keep reading to find out......

Asus Spresso Barebones PC

Asus Spresso Barebones PC

Here's a nice looking barebones small form factor PC from Asus: The S-presso SI-P111.

The Asus Spresso comes with the fancy looking case, LED panel, TV tuner, remote control, memory card reader, and a high-end Asus motherboard. All you do is add a hard drive, operating system of your choice (this would be great for Windows Media Center), DDR memory, socket 478 processor, and a graphics card (it has been tested with most recent high-power 8x AGP card, making it suitable for a gaming PC).

The Asus Spresso SI-P111 is 9.5" x 7.1" x 13", and costs around $300.

GeForce 6600GT vs Radeon X700 Pro

GeForce 6600GT vs Radeon x700 pro faceoff

We are writing a series of articles about our $649 low price high performance PC and we are looking at the best $200 upgrades.

The first component we are upgrading is the graphics card; switching out the anaemic ATI X300 solution for a nice new GeForce 6600GT.

When we made that decision it was a choice between two types of cards, both of which are available for around $200: 128mb GeForce 6600GT or 256mb Radeon X700 pro

At first we wanted to go for the X700 pro as it had twice the memory and used the same drivers as the X300 (making for an easier upgrade), but we heard there was a big performance difference that made the GeForce 6600 a better buy.

Anandtech has just confirmed what we heard in a faceoff between GeForce 6600GT and Radeon X700 pro cards. The GeForce 6600GT got a 20% better frame rate in Half-Life 2, 70% better in Doom 3, and between 5% and 20% improvement in other games.

Looks like we made the right choice.

Trust HU-3340M Mini USB hub

Trust HU-3340M Mini USB hub

bios has a review of the Trust HU-3340M Mini USB hub.

Ok, we've all seen millions of USB hubs before but this one does have some redeeming features: light, aluminium, and most importantly, is powered:

We were using a mini USB hub with my wife's laptop and the mouse kept going screwy, jumping all over the screen, and clicking randomly, we tested for spyware viruses and adware but in the end the problem turned out to be the hub, it was unpowered and with 4 devices connected there wasn't enough power getting through to the mouse (the mouse worked perfectly when connected directly to the laptop's USB port.

So, if you are going to buy a USB hub pay a little more for a powered one like the Trust HU-3340M Mini USB hub.

GeForce 6600GT Graphics Card Face-Off

GeForce 6600GT faceoff

Our $649 low price high performance PC arrived (we will have a review up in a few days), and if you remember we are going to be upgrading a few components.

The first component we are upgrading is the graphics card; switching out the anaemic ATI X300 solution for a nice new GeForce 6600GT. We bought a Sparkle GeForce 6600GT card (as we found a good price online) but were wondering how it compares to other 6600GT cards.

Anandtech came to our rescue as they have just published a face-off between retail GeForce 6600GT cards from 11 manufacturers.

The cards they looked at were from: Albatron, Gigabyte, Palit, Sparkle, Leadtek, Chaintech, Prolink, MSI, XFX, Inno3D, Galaxy and NVIDIA.

The end result is the the Sparkle isn't the best but it still performs good and should prove to be a good upograde for the money.

Ultra X-Connect 500w PSU Review

ultra x-connect 500w power supply

We had been planning on upgrading the power supply on our main PC for a while as our power supply was noisy and underpowered for the 3 hard drives, 2 optical drives, and power guzzling ATI graphics card in our system.

Replacing a power supply is one of the most complex do-it-yourself jobs on a PC, in my mind second only in complexity to replacing a motherboard. We therefore looked around for a solution that promised to be a high-quality replacement that wouldn't need to be upgraded again for years.

We thought the Ultra X-Connect 500w PSU looked to be a good fit for our needs and Ultra Products were kind enough to send one over for us to review.

An additional advantage to upgrading to the Ultra X-Connect is that is has a modular cable system where you just install the cables you need removing a lot of the clutter from your PC (hopefully improving airflow and reliability at the same time).

How did we fare at replacing our power supply?, and how has it performed?, keep reading to find out......

Logitech V500 Cordless Notebook Mouse

Logitech V500 Cordless Notebook Mouse

I've been looking for a good travel mouse for a while and just stumbled upon the new Logitech V500 Cordless Notebook Mouse that seems to be exactly what I am looking for.

The Logitech V500 Cordless Notebook Mouse is small, but not too small, has a 4-way solid-state scroll panel (instead of and better than a scroll wheel), 2.4GHz wireless, an "all terrain optical engine" sensor, and takes 2 AAA batteries.

The Logitech V500 Cordless Notebook Mouse will cost $69.95.

Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Notebook

Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Notebook

bios took a look at the Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Notebook.

The Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Notebook is a PCMCIA card that gives laptop users a greatly improved sound experience over the regular sound output of laptop computers.

Every laptop these days has a PCMCIA card slot or two but there are less and less things to do with it now that wireless, ethernet, modem etc is built into the laptop. It's nice to find something new to do with an otherwise empty PCMCIA slot.

The Creative Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Notebook has high quality sound output:

"It delivers THX® certified 24-bit ADVANCED HD™ audio quality playback with incredible 104dB SNR, allowing the highest resolution audio playback with support for DVD-Audio at up to 24-bit/192kHz and Windows Media 9: 24-bit multi-channel audio format.

The Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Notebook also provides encompassing 7.1 surround sound for Dolby® Digital EX as well as DTS-ES™ supported DVD movies; any DirectSound3D games and CMSS 3D virtualized 7.1 stereo music. Gamers will love the hardware accelerated EAX® 4.0 ADVANCED HD™ that not only brings games to life, but delivers maximum performance! Musicians will also enjoy true 24-bit recording and low latency ASIO support for the ultimate audio recording platform. Notebook audio just got very, very interesting!"

Fingerprint Sensing LCD Screen

Casio Combines LCD, Fingerprint Sensor

Casio has developed a 1.2" LCD screen with a fingerprint sensor layered into it.

The idea behind the concept is to built biometric security into cellphones without needing a seperate sensor.

Casio said it could also be used in PDAs (but that would require a larger, higher resolution LCD).

Sounds nice but what I don't get is: why would I want a PDA or cellphone whose LCD screen is always covered in greasy dirty fingerprints?

Stowaway Bluetooth Keyboard Review

stowaway bluetooth keyboard for bluetooth equipped pocket pc and phones

PocketPcThoughts has reviewed the Think Outside Stowaway Bluetooth keyboard.

The Stowaway Bluetooth Keyboard is a very small (5.5" x 3.9" x 0.5") box that folds out for form a good sized (9.9" x 5.8" x 0.5") 4 row QWERTY keyboard.

The Stowaway Bluetooth Keyboard should work with any bluetooth equipped pocket pc (or a pocket pc wit a socket bluetooth SD or CF card) as well as many bluetooth equipped smart phones.

The list of compatible devices on the Think Outside site is a little out of date and doesn't specifically mention any of the new VGA Pocket PCs although they should work with the keyboard without problems.

Shuttle SB81P Review

shuttle SB81P xpc sff small form factor pc

Bittech reviewed the Shuttle SB81P XPC small form factor pc.

The Shuttle SB81PC is a small computer case, 350w silent power supply, and motherboard: you have to add a processor, memory, hard drive, CD/DVD drive, keyboard, mouse, etc.

The Shuttle SB81PC is 12.7" long, 8.3" wide, and 8.7" high, this is a little larger than many shuttle cases but it allows the building of a more powerful system.

The Shuttle SB81P supports socket 775 pentium 4 and celeron 800/533MHz processors, up to 2GB of DDR 400 RAM, up to 3 3.5" SATA hard drives and a 5.25" optical drive (DVD/CD), and has 2 expansion slotS: a PCI slot and a new PCI Express slot for more powerful graphics.

Overall Bittech liked the performance, silence, and style but didn't like the onboard graphics.

Pentium 4 Price Cuts

pentium 4 processor price cuts

The Inquirer reports that intel are having a big round of price cuts on Pentuim 4 processors. The cuts will happen August 22nd.

The prices listed are the bulk prices (the price paid for batches of 1000+ by computer manufacturers).

All Pentium 4 processors below 3ghz are phased out, and prices on other Pentium 4's are cut.

What the price cut really means is that if you are looking to buy a new PC you should wait. A computer with a 2.8ghz processor should come with a 3ghz, one with a 3ghz should come with a 3.2ghz etc, for the same price after August 22nd.

Hush ATX Silent PC

The Hush ATX uses standard PC components such as Intel Pentium 4 Processors, up to 160gb hard drives, TV tuners, DVD drive, up to 2gb RAM etc but cuts out all the noise by not using a single fan.

Instead of fans the Hush ATX uses a custom built case that acts as a massive solid aluminium heatsink.

Power-ful Ultra X-Connect Power Supply

ultra x-connect 500w power supply

My main PC is home built and a couple of years old, it has been regularly upgraded from the motherboard up except for the power supply.

With graphics cards needing more and more power, I think the next thing I need to upgrade is my old 350w power supply, which is why I was pleased to find a review of the Ultra X-Connect 500w Power Supply.

The thing I like most about this power supply is the individual power leads: much better than the tangle of messy interconnected power leads in the average PC.
