    Scythe Announces Kro Craft Rev. B Speakers

    You can always get your DISCO-OMGWTF speakers for the same price, but for pure volume these speakers are'nt designed for that. The usual Trust 2.1 speakerset lack true bass from such a small subwoofer, they cannot really go loud without distorted noise or bass.

    VisionTek Announces Killer 2100 HD 5770 Combo Graphics-Network Card

    These cards basicly do traffic shaping, traffic control and QoS :) this makes your latency in games a little lower then a normal Nic card, but it cannot lower your physical ping from your modem towards your end point. I think TPU and Tomshardware tested this card out, its more something fancy on...

    Silicon Power Announces Ultra-Fast E20 Solid State Drive

    I think they menth the becoming smaller difference for the read & write speeds for not being synced (Or far from between). Usual SSD's come with 150MB Read / 80MB write, this makes the gap between these speeds a lil smaller, and yes the marketing engine tjooking along.

    Zambezi AM3+ Core Logic Slated for Q2-2011

    I cannot even use 6 USB slots at the same time, why implement up to 14 USB slots? :confused: Too bad this is'nt backwards compatible to enjoy the latest chipset features on a older generation of processors, but makes moving on into new CPU's alot easyer.

    NVIDIA Readying Dual-GF110 Graphics Accelerator, Eying Total Performance Leadership

    But its not true with GPU's. AMD / Ati has chosen to develop really tight GPU's with lesser power consumption, but lower developing-costs. Nvidia makes GPU's which are larger, tougher to make and having problems with TSMC making good wafles of chips lol. I'd prefer a chip with less power...

    Disable GeForce GTX 580 Power Throttling using GPU-Z

    So basicly the card is capped at a certain level of power usage, but will it increase performance in furmark as soon as this trigger is being set off? Or is just just abnormal power usage by the VRM's to protect them from burning out ? A few GTX's where also reported with fried VRM's using...
