The 64GB Crucial M225 Solid-State Driveis up for review at R&B Mods. At $214 it really won't break the bank compared to some SSDs, especially considering that they are using the Indilinx Barefoot controller. That should put them up near the top of the performance heap as only the Intel controller tends to beat out the Barefoot. It is also nice to see that the latest firmware supports TRIM, helping keep the per

We have been waiting with baited breath for the arrival of a LucidLogix Hydra board that is freely tested and reported on and now thanks to AnandTech we do. The MSI Big Bang Fuzion is ready for launch and it seems that the delay was unquestionably necessary. The performance numbers are not awful, but neither do they beat the native multiGPU solutions from nVIDIA and AMD. There were also issues with games that were on the supported list, something that is never endearing to a consumer. Drop

During a pre-show event last night, we spent a few minutes with Bill Henry of NVIDIA who showed us a prototype tablet computer based on the Tegra platform. You know about Tegra from our previous discussions on it and likely from all the hype surrounding the Microsoft Zune HD.

If you are annoyed by the moniker 'God Mode' when it comes to the string that you can add to a folder name to create a super charged control panel then you may have forgotten your gaming history. So called 'Cheat Codes' exist because developers have always allowed themselves back doors and shortcuts in order to test their programs. It was hard to see how a level looked overall without no-clipping and looking for textures that don't match can be hard without God Mode enabled.

Since being able to successfully split from AMD, we have not heard a whole lot from GF these days. While their process tech looks to be the most advanced out of all the other contract Fabs, their list of partners have been small...

There is something a little unusual about Lenovo's new X100e laptop; inside you will find a single core Athlon Neo MV40 CPU, not an Intel Atom. Even though it retains the smaller size of the X series, it still has a 11.6" 1366 x 768 display, along with 4GB of RAM, a Realtek 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi adapter, and a 5200RPM HDD of 160GB to 320GB. The 6 cell battery does interfere with the style of the notebook so you will have to decide between keeping the sleek lines or longer battery life.

Whilst playing through Dragon Age Origins a quest appears which seems to be offered by a beggar. While having your own keep is cool, the quest is not unlockable until you leave the game and shell over a few more bucks to Microsoft. If you don't bother to buy those Microsoft points then the fellow just follows around your entourage and offers disparaging looks. There are more paid downloadable quests planned, such as the Return to Ostagar.
