Desktop CPU Comparison Guide Rev. 13.5 @ Tech ARP
here are so many CPU models that it has become quite impossible to keep up with the different models or even remember their specifications!
Therefore, we decided to compile this guide to provide an easy reference for those who are interested in comparing the specifications of the various desktop CPUs in the market, as well as those already obsolescent or obsolete.
Currently covering 925 desktop CPUs, this comprehensive comparison will allow you to easily compare 19 different specifications for each and every CPU. We hope it will prove to be a useful reference. We will keep this guide updated regularly so do check back for the latest updates!

ur performance testing showed that we were able to average 642Mbps read and 757Mbps write with the Diamond UE3000 on our particular test setup. The USB 2.0 10/100M network adapter that we've been using for the past year could only averaged 77Mbps read and 93Mbps write, so this is a major performance improvement. We can only hope that if a mobile device doesn't come with an integrated Ethernet port (RJ-45 connector) that a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter will be included in the near future. If not, have no fear as the Diamond UE3000 is now available for purchase...

With today's processors generating higher temperatures than those based on prior generation architectures, choosing the right cooler becomes more important than ever especially if you intend to overclock the CPU even a few MHz over the stock settings. While the stock coolers supplied by the CPU manufacturers will allow the chip to run at its intended specifications, you certainly aren't likely to squeeze any more performance out of it. This sets the stage for what brings us here today, as I will be taking a look at the latest CPU cooler offering from Cooler Master, the V8 GTS. Like its predecessor, the V8 GTS is designed to offer maximum cooling efficiency for today's CPUs while sporting a stylish new design.
Let's take a quick look at the packaging for Cooler Master's latest bad boy. The front includes a brief description on some of the features found on the V8 GTS, for instance the Vapor Chamber technology, Triple Phase Tower and Self Lubricating Bearing system. If we spin the package around you will find additional information regarding the V8 GTS in multiple languages, as well as the dimensions of the cooler itself. For a more detailed specifications list you can check the left hand side of the package, or simply sneak a peek at them below.

Today we are going to take a look at headphoens from Icy Box, who we’ve previously recieved review products from before. They have named the headphones Big City Vibe or IB-HPH2 if you prefer that. According to earlier reviews and user experience they should have good sound and a balanced bass so I have high hopes for these headphones that you can pick up for fairly inexpensive on the market.

We previously evaluated the Antec HCG-750M, and it left us with a good impression. We will now review its bigger brother, the HCG-850M. Sharing the same features with the aforementioned unit and having been made by the same OEM, Seasonic, we have pretty high expectations, too.

Facebook's application for Android could drain your device's battery faster by up to 20 percent. The app by Facebook, the most popular social networking service, runs in the background constantly and consumes a lot of CPU time and RAM - even if you're not using it, or have it in a logged out state. This report based on an in-house benchmark using Samsung Galaxy Nexus (GSM), Android 4.2.2 and Facebook 3.4. A good alternative to Facebook's app is to create a bookmark linking to Facebook's mobile website on your homescreen.

The new Cooler Master V8 GTS is one of the most powerful CPU air coolers of it’s time. It could most definitely be referred to as revolutionary because of its unique design and it’s breath-taking vapor chamber. I truly believe this technology is going to be the next big thing in the computer cooling world.

Ever wondered which are the 3 most well-known watch manufacturers according to most people and not just watch collectors and/or enthusiasts? Well i did and so last month i asked a total of 20 people (relatives, friends and FB fans) who surprisingly gave me similar answers. So the 5 most well-known watch manufacturers based on the answers of all of them are Rolex, Tag Heuer, Citizen, Seiko and Casio with Rolex and Casio taking the first two places since these were mentioned by pretty much everyone. Now although there's not a single person that i know of that owns a genuine Rolex watch this brand is the equivalent of Rolls Royce (in watches) so it's hardly a surprise that most people know of them. What i didn't expect came later on when i asked all of them if they were aware of a specific model manufactured by one of those watch companies and the only one some of them knew was the G-SHOCK line by Casio.

One thing to be certain in the tech industry is that you can never be content at the status quo even if you are the leader in the industry. The tech industry moves at such a rapid pace where in a very short period of time, an industry leader can quickly be replaced

Late last year we took a look at the 256GB Vector drive from OCZ and it walked away with one of our highest ever scores. It may have been an expensive drive, but in regards to performance there really was nothing to touch it at the time. 8 months later and we have the larger 512GB version in for testing. How does it compare and is it still a tempting proposition in late 2013?
