Ivy Bridge Overclocking

TweakTown has a couple of Ivy Bridge chips and pushes them pretty hard with some decent cooling.  They take the Core i7 3770K and the Core i5 3570K and manage to get some extra performance out of these chips - although not as much as with the 2600K Sandy Bridge.  Take a look for all the details.

Still if we've learned one thing, *cough* Bulldozer *cough*, it's that MHz isn't everything. While our 3770k comes clocked 400MHz lower than our older 2600k, can the upcoming Ivy Bridge platform offer better efficiency at the clock rate? Well, there's really only one way to find out.

Xbox - Not Just for Gaming

According to an article at CNET, Xbox is used for gaming about half of the time.  Typical usage is about 84 hours a month and over half of that is spent watching videos and listening to music.  That means that Microsoft gets it.  They know how to market a console.  Too bad they can't figure out how to market a phone or a tablet.

Microsoft has been dramatically increasing the amount of non-gaming content available to Xbox Live users. Last year, the company launched a major update to its dashboard, delivering programming from a host of providers, including ESPN, Hulu Plus, and others. Over the last several months, other services have brought their content to the Xbox 360.

Home Theater Loving

A couple years ago, projectors were a really big thing when it came to building an ultimate home theater room in your house.  With TV tech evolving so much though, there has been less excitement around projectors.  With that being said, the BenQ W1060 Projector over at TechReviews should still turn a few heads as it is a great option for native 1920x1080 output and is bright enough and has enough inputs for many people.

Perhaps one of the things you can plug into your projector or any TV is the new Apple TV reviewed over at MissingRemote.  I know, I know... Apple.  Right?  Then why not check out the Noontec MediaHome V8 over at HardwareLook.  Even though I'm not an Apple fan, the interface and functions look much better on the device from Cupertino.

If you want to wirelessly connect your laptop to your TV, there are a few solutions - including the Warpia Easy Dock Pro SWP220 over at TechwareLabs.  This little device can hook to to a spare VGA or HDMI port on your favorite TV or projector and seems to work pretty well.

Motherboard Roundup

As we wrap up this late edition of news for a fine Tuesday, we've got a bunch of motherboard reviews scrapped up from around the web.  With the diverse sockets and sizes, there is something for everyone.


Game. On

As we kick off the news for Monday, we've got a few game reviews - mostly from HardwareHeaven as they have a hard time getting into gear on a Monday and would rather be playing.  They've got Rayman Orgins on the PSV and Total War: Shogun 2 as well as Blacklight Retribution on the PC.  On the console side of things, they bring us Twisted Metal for the PS3 and Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City for the Xbox.  All-in-all there is some good gaming fun.

Photoshop CS6 Beta Available

Adobe has opened up the beta for Photoshop CS6 and it's been going like hot-cakes.  There are a ton of feature enhancements, improvements and some wizardry all taking place behind the scenes as it allows you to manipulate (easily) almost anything in your image and gives you the ability to rearrange anything and everything seamlessly.  You can take crappy pictures and pass them off as masterpieces with this program.  In a way, I'm kind of opposed to this idea, but I guess it's progress.  Go download the beta (for free) over here.  Of course, Adobe is hoping you'll get hooked and buy the full version later.
