What’s unique is that this LCD seems like itreceived bullet-proofing (or something) with a 9H Hardness protection rating (isthis Mohs scale? That would be impressive!). This is done thanks to a glasssheet that covers the entire panel. The LCD panel itself is TN and in 4:3 ratio,but due to the glass pane, it weighs twice as much as a standard 20-inch LCD.Crossbow-proof, according to the Russian video. Read the reviewhere.
Boot Daily is doing a Gigabyte vs. Asus shootout in the X48 department. Acouple of years back you’d have called the winner without reading the article,but today it seems Gigabyte has something to be quite happy about (Gigabyte usedto have Asus build mobos for them some time ago, maybe that is still the case?).The Asus P5E3 Premium and Gigabyte GA-X48T-DQ6 bench it out, with Asus winningoverall performance and Gigabyte price/performance.

While the world is looking onwards to Green Goblin’s next generation ofgraphics cards, AMD’s partners are making an effort to put out special ones thatcan trump Geforce, somehow. Visiontek sent off a new Radeon HD 3870 X2Overclocked Edition to Tech Spot, where Steven was waiting eagerly to put it tothe bench. He used Catalyst 8.4 64-bit in his endeavours, and the results werequite impressive. Just when you thought Nvidia had pinned down ATI, here comes acard that matches the GX2’s performance.Quiteimpressive.
Memory manufacturers are moving more and more into another area of expertise– due to the need to supply enough clean power to the system components(including their precious RAM). Just look at Mushkin, OCZ and Corsair. Well,Anandtech has a review on Corsair’s latest PSU, the HX1000W – the first toreceive Nvidia’s Triple-SLI rubber stamp. Efficient, powerful and not at allnoisy, seem to make the Corsair kit something of a catch, thinks Christopher.Read ithere.
French website Hardware.fr has reviewed Intel’s Q9300 and E7200, the two“budget” models of the Quad and Duo families, respectively. The tests revealsomewhat of a disappointment when it comes to the E7200’s overclockingpotential, but it still outperforms its predecessor the E4700, says Marc. TheQ9300 has a different issue altogether. It’s replacing the Q6600 but theperformance on the Q6600 is slightly higher and the price is cheaper. Maybe whenSSE4 comes into its own...

Abit’s AX78 is on the bench at CPU3D. It’s AMD770-based, matched up with aSB600 southbridge. CPU3D used an Athlon FX-62 for the tests and were prettysatisfied with the outcome. Sure, you still won’t be able to compete withIntel’s mainstream, but it looks like a very decent performer for a veryreasonable price, considering the board is packed to the rim with features.Catch ithere.
