Review: AMD HD 5850

Submitted by: Beren @ 07:43 AM | Thursday, October 1, 2009 | (url: http://www.hardoc...)

As a very happy owner of a 4850 from the last gen I am obviously very interested in the 5850. Looking at the specs the 5850 look to be even closer to the 5870 then the 4850 was to the 4870. So anyone looking for a midrange part to kick some serious arse this is the ticket.

The first DX11 card to hit the shelves. A very impressive card that has me drooling and thinking buying one shortly. Check out this review to see for yourself.

Intels new X25-M 80GB SSD is one of the fastest consumer solid state drives available - a technology that's commonly cited as being the future of storage technology. But at $600, this puppy isn't cheap. Is the technology actually worth it yet?

NVIDIA Continues to refine the GT200 GPU, and the latest 55nm version offers better efficiency and higher performance.

Every technology starts with a motivation, and throughout the past year Benchmark Reviews has watched the computer hardware industry follow trends that seem all too familiar of yesteryear. In this article by Executive Editor Olin Coles, the past 2008 calendar year is summarized for it's accomplishments, but the real focus is on the coming year ahead. Will 2009 be the year that component computer hardware becomes important again, or will it be relegated to a niche hobby for enthusiast?


Age of Conan Beta Review Part 3

Your basic initial attack is fire, sound familiar? It's not. I was thinking "big deal, another fire mage" nope. First of all, when you torch an enemy and they grab their head, visually write in pain, audibly scream in agony omigod adrenaline rush. I'm sorry to my fellow healers, but there was joy...


Age of Conan Beta After 24 Hours

Submitted by: jamesjimmy @ 03:32 AM | Tuesday, May 6, 2008 | (url: http://bittdaily....)

I rolled myself a Priestess of Mitra. So lets start with character creation. Overall I thought the variety of options for customizing my character was quite high. I wont say Im in love with the final product. I guess guys will be thrilled with the ability to make a hot body for the female avatars. I was not so thrilled with my best efforts to make a cute face. I realize this is not a huge issue, I am merely providing feedback in the order in which I experienced each aspect. I know the Hyborian life was a tough one so the people probably werent overly cute anyway. This was only cosmetic and not a big deal.


Team Fortress 2 : Bare Naked FPS Strategy

Submitted by: jamesjimmy @ 07:18 AM | Friday, May 2, 2008 | (url: http://bittdaily....)

The guys at Valve are my heroes. Seriously, the Orange Box is a work of art on so many levels, it starts to feel divinely inspired. Who is this Gabe Newell, anyway?! After playing through the Half Life 2 sequels and Portal, the last piece of the package is Team Fortress 2, which is like the parting gift that keeps on giving. Team Multiplayer FPS being my favorite genre by far, I was of course excited to play it.

The mother of all power supply reviews. The text is Google translated from French, but it's still fairly easy to comprehend. The look at fluctuation on the 12V rail, power consumed/wasted, noise produced, and other things, to come up with several recommendations.
