XFX GTX 280: A Preview of What’s to Come

  Bjorn3D will kick off our on-going coverage of this gala event with a detailed preview of the flagship of the line, the GeForce GTX 280 provided to us by XFX. For clarity’s sake notice we said “on-going” and “preview”. As with the debut of any new generation of graphical product there is almost always a portion of the manufacturer’s final vision of that device that is either immature or incomplete, and the GTX 280 is certainly no exception to that premise. We fully intend to go into great detail in this preview about what’s currently available and what you can expect in the future from the NVIDIA 200 series of graphical products. No related posts.

ASUS PQ5 Deluxe P45 Eaglelake Motherboard

The P5Q Deluxe is one of ASUS’s top of the line P45 based boards and like the majority of these boards being released utilizes DDR2 in lieu of the newer DDR3.

OCZ DDR2 PC2-8500 Reaper HPC 4GB Edition

Unless you absolutely need to have the fastest system and have a lot of money to spend, it would be wiser to stay with DDR2 system until the price has dropped. Vista system consumes quite a lot of memory so having 4GB of DDR2 would be a better choice than having 2GB of DDR3 given to the similar prices. That is why we see manufactures still produce fast speed DDR2. Today, we have probably one of the fastest 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 available from OCZ–the PC2-8500 Reaper HPC 4GB Edition. Join us as we put it through the test and see how far can we push this pair of memory sticks. No related posts. Read More »

Honeywell 80 GB SecuraDrive Portable Drive

  When we at Bjorn3D are contacted by any vendor touting the merits of any new product we’ve learned through experience to take their words with a grain of salt.
