AMD DTX Small Form Factor System Sneak Peek
@ HotHardware.com
“When AMD first revealed their plans for the DTX open industry standard, the intent of that early briefing was to explain AMD’s vision for interoperable small form factor systems. As it stands today, most SFF systems from large companies like Dell and HP are proprietary designs. On the do-it-yourself front, we’ve got form factors like Micro-ATX, Mini-ITX and SFF barebones systems from major players like Shuttle, Asus and MSI. However, for the most part you can’t take parts from one company’s SFF design and use it in another’s. Today AMD provided more details and a specific design example of the DTX small form-factor standard. This HotHardware article showcases a prototype system built on a low power AMD Athlon 64 BE-2350 processor and 690G chipset motherboard with integrated graphics.”

“Coolmax seems to have a very good product in its latest power supply offering. The CUQ-1200B has impressive specifications, lots of connectors on superbly sleeved cables, modular design, and top-notch efficiency. The fit and finish is excellent and the attention to detail, from the packaging to the visual aspects and manual, is impressive.”

NVIDIA PerfKit 5: New Tools for 3D Developers @ Digit-Life
“PerfHUD reached this level of popularity, because it actually helps developers optimize their projects in an easier and more efficient way. PerfHUD compares favorably to similar utilities, as it works in real time with the analyzed application. The entire process of debugging and detecting bottlenecks is carried out right in an application. The new PerfKit 5 is available at NVIDIA website for developers, we offer you a review of its features.”

Zalman Reserator XT @ Overclockers Online
“Zalman continues their reputation for quality products with the new Reserator XT. The Reserator line finally gets active cooling to compliment its passive cooling with positive results. The Reserator XT is built to be as quiet as possible, but those who don’t mind the extra noise are still able to manually increase the fan and pump speed to squeeze a little more performance out of it. Zalman continues to bring top quality water cooling to inexperienced and experienced users, and the Reserator XT is no exception.”

Trendnet TEW-633GR Wireless N Gigabit Router Review @ The Tech Zone
“The Trendnet TEW-633GR Wireless N Gigabit Router is a solid product with solid performance, actually pushing its connection up to the 300 Mbps transfer rate promised on the box. The range is quite good, letting me stay connected even when I was half a block away from my house. The build quality and physical appearance are also much improved over the first router and we all know how important looks are these days.”
