    T-mobile Galaxy S2 getting different chips

    A higher clock yet slower clock for clock processor is usually the wrong answer to battery life issue. IMO the best way is make the phone a little thicker and put in a 1900 mah battery. Also GS2 has better battery life than 95% of android phone.

    Who cares about iPhone5 ? It's outdated already

    A5 in ipad 2 is faster than the SoC in GS2 by 25-50%, however, there is a problem about heat and power, after all the ipad2 version of A5 is designed for tablet, so what Apple cando with it is still in question. I highly doubt they can fit a SGX 543mp2 in it and still get good battery life...

    Core I7, shoudl hyperthreading be disable ?

    no, in 2003 p4 3.0c I bought was much better with HT on. Not to say the HT was better, it was mostly because it has one core, so multi tasking was clearly better with it's on, with quad core now, any benefit is not noticeable at all, while my matlab code was clearly slower.

    Core I7, shoudl hyperthreading be disable ?

    That's very very wrong. I was under the same impression not long ago because all the tech sites always keep talking about multi-threaded application able to take advantage of HT. However, as I just recently found out, it really depend on the natural of the program and how it's written. The...

    Nvidia GT300 "Fermi" PICS!!!

    This card looks like total fail, 4-6 month later than AMD, huge power consumption, use lots of power, generate lots of heat, use same tech so will cost more than 58xx to make, and won't even be that much more powerful, by the time it come out, I can see AMD's corssfire setup being faster and...

    Cheapest PC to watch streaming video online(wireless) on TV via HDMI?

    I am looking to buy a PC to watch steaming videos online, my TV us a Sony V series 42 inch, I think HDMI would work the best as it has both audio and video. It's mostly for online video only, maybe DVD once in a while, no blu ray what so ever. I am looking to buy one as cheap as possible, and...

    M200MkII or KRK Rokit 8?

    I'd go with 8s if you don't plan to get a sub, but if your desk is really too small, then you don't really have choice unless you change desk.

    Joined the Receiver club w/ Dayton BR-1 bookshelf speakers

    I used that one before, if you were using sine wave when you tested and get "There seemed to be a slight dropoff at 40 Hz, and became really noticeable at ~35 Hz. ", then either you were really close to the speakers or the speakers are very very very impressive. If you were using other wave...

    Interesting you think it only start to drop off from 40Hz. Can you please post the link to the test tones? I tested over 30 book shelf speakers with 6.5 " drive and none of them can do anything below 50Hz at a reasonable lv. I also talked to some people working for respectable speaker makers...

    The second part of your post is right, but there is a limitation, 6.5 is just too small for 43 hz.

    Joined the Receiver club w/ Dayton BR-1 bookshelf speakers

    I feel sorry for you if you believed this. 6.5" drive cannot have a frequency response range as low as 43 Hz, it may still make little sound but I'd bet it start to drop sharply at 60-80Hz, and by the time it gets 43Hz it will be something like -20db.

    Just got a receiver...Couple of questions.

    I second the CBM 170 suggestion, I never used SE version, but I had 2 CBM 170 for over 2 years, along with Panasonic XR-50(not sure the mode number but something like that) that has the same output power as your receiver which is 100W @ 8 ohm, as well as a Dayton 10" 100W power sub.

    G2400WD top too dark?

    I think you got a defective one, I used to own a G2400W and now I have 2693HM, from what I see the on my 2693HM(the test pic) and what I recall from the days I used 2400W I can tell you for 100% sure my G2400W would not be half as bad.

    One thing? Tri-Channel memory? Dual x16 PCI-e? I love how you sound like Q9550 system is sooo much cheaper than i7 920 when in fact it cost a little more. Double? where? an I7 920 system cost about $300 more when you use a CHEAP P45 board for Q9550, go with high end P45, the...

    "Intel Quad-Core Performance, Top to Bottom"

    I think this test has a MAJOR problem, they use Vista for OS, then use 2GB for C2 system and 3GB for i7 system, which is not ENOUGH to tell the real story about these CPUs.

    Diff beteeeen i7 920 and Q9300

    I you really don't care about old or new, you could go Q6600, cost less and can hit higher clock easier when OC, more cache too. For Q9550, I think it's the best C2Q you can buy at a reasonable price, with the whole system cost about $300 less than a i7 920 one, it's up to you wither it's...
