Six years ago Corsair first entered the PSU market with the HX520W and HX620W, both of which products were marked as a great success for the company. Today the company offers 6 series of PSUs but the HX series remains alive, with its modular 80Plus Gold certified units right between the elite AX series and the mainstream 80Plus Bronze certified TX series. In this review we are taking a crack at testing the most popular model of the HX series, the HX850.

"As it can be seen from the graphs and tables of the two previous pages, the overall performance of the Corsair HX850 PSU is well above average. Electrically, the power supply displayed very good voltage line regulation in conjunction with low ripple, plus it satisfied the efficiency requirements of an 80Plus Gold certified unit. The thermal performance is also very good, especially considering the lack of heatsinks providing any noteworthy heat dissipation surface..."

Written by

BIOSTAR is entering the Hi-Fi audio market with their Hi-Fi series of Intel motherboards.

If, like us, you're ready for something fresh in the SSD market you're in for a treat. Corsair has launched their Neutron series of SSDs with a brand new controller from Link_A_Media Devices and the results of our benchmarks show it to be a serious competitor. Should the other drive makers be looking over their shoulder? Have a look to see what we have to say about it.

"Corsair touts the Neutron 240GB drive as reaching max performance numbers of 555 MB/s reads and 370 MB/s writes which we found to be spot on for the ATTO benchmark and not far off on the other tests. Given that performance is not impacted by data compressibility, that's to be expected as well as solid performance numbers in the real world tests. We didn't spot anything amiss in any of the numbers and general usage of the drive in Windows yielded positive results with no hint of stuttering, lagging or BSOD's. TRIM and idle garbage collection seem to be working fine as well so no worries there. Overall, our first impressions are very positive..."

IDF 2012: Intel Wireless Charging Technology @ Legit Reviews

Written by

Last week, the first smartphone built-in wireless charging was announced in the U.S when the Nokia Lumia 920 was released. This Windows Phone 8 smartphone is the first of what we expect to be many smartphones to have embedded wireless charging. Read on to see what Intel is planning on doing with wireless charging on upcoming products!

"At this weeks Intel Developer Forum we got to see Wireless Charging Technology (WTC) by Intel in action. Intel was showing off an Acer Aspire Ultrabook that was modified to support internal resonance charging. This was just a proof of concept unit as production models with and without wireless charging technology would look the same. Intel said that labels on the Ultrabook would have to inform consumers where the wireless charger is located. The smartphone can charge up to about an inch away, so it must remain close to the Ultrabook to work..."

For those that follow the PC industry you might have heard of the “Next Unit of Computing” (NUC) mini-PC by none other than Intel. This is a SFF PC that takes things to the next level by using a 4-inch square motherboard stuffed into a tiny plastic case. Intel started designing this system over a year ago and it is expected to ship next month. Read on to see what Intel is up to in the SFF PC space!

"The Intel NUC has been powered by several processors over the past year, but this month at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) we saw the latest version that is powered by a Intel Core i3-3217U processor that has been soldered to the underside of the board. This is a 1.8 GHz dual-core 'Ivy Bridge' processor with Hyper-Threading that is rated at just 17 Watts! Intel plans on shipping the NUC in this current form for $399 starting in October 2012. This price might shock some people, but this isn't a Raspberry Pi board with an ARM CPU/GPU for $35..."

Read on to see how this sub $100 Wireless-N router performs when we put it to the test!

"After using the EnGenius ESR750H router for a few weeks, I really fell in love with some aspects of this sub-$100 router – namely, the size, power consumption and user interface. Because the ESR750H is outfitted with 2 external 5 dBi antennas, we really expected the router to have a larger range of service than that of the other routers we have in our arsenal with internal antennas..."
