HWZ review: MSI GNB Max2-L (Intel E7205) Motherboard

"For overclockers, the GNB Max2-L is probably a much welcomed product after MSI´s failure to address the overclockers in their initial release of the GNB Max. With good overclocking options, the GNB Max2-L would satisfy a lot of DIY users, especially those looking into the possibility of getting that extra mileage from their processor."

M-Audio Revolution 7.1 PC Surround SoundCard Review @ Tweaknews.net

"This would be an IDEAL sound card in a HomeTheater PC, or hooked up to a receiver. The card will minimize colouring the output and offers an affordable entry into the surround sound market. Currently, there are no 7.1 speaker systems on the market, but if sales of this card go well I would suggest that a 7.1 system will be appearing soon."

VIA Mini-ITX hits 1GHz with Nehemiah core @ SilentPCReview

"SPCR´s review of a pre-production 1 GHz VIA EPIA-M10000 Mini-ITX board with the new Nehemiah C3 core. Ten thousand is the next step after M9000, the last released EPIA board reviewed here late last year. It is more than a marginal clock speed upgrade, says VIA. Our sample turns out to run at 933 MHz, so we had a head-to-head between Nehemiah and Ezra-T at the same speed."

Such things are rare in our news, but we decided to separate this one. Itís a 512Mb Secure Digital card from SimpleTech.


Naturally, itís primarily interesting by its capacity. But, except for it, the first test results obtained by Andrew Kozhemyako aka Korzh in HD Tach are worth mention as well:


Such a fast card it is. Other details to follow in our future articles.
