PCI Express is great right? PCI Express x16 videocards are plentiful, and PCI Express motherboards are coming down in price... but what about all those PCI Express x1 slots? Where are the sound cards, network cards, and like for the PCIe x1 interface? SysKonnect out of Germany has just introduced a PCIe x1 Gigabit network card, which Xbitlabs have detailed here. While more PCIe x1 cards are sure to come, expect the releases to be few and far between this year.
X-bit has also extensively detailed its Power Supply Unit Testing Methodology. This underscores the difficult fact that most powersupply reviews are limited in what they can actually test (including PCstats reviews), given the need for fairly specialized test equipment.
Also from Xbit are reviews of the MSI K8N Diamond SLI motherboard, GeIL Ultra Platinum Series PC4200 DDR, Seagate ST650211USB External Hard Disk, Razer Viper and Razer Diamondback Professional Mice, Corsair's newish XPERT Memory, Acer Ferrari 3200 and ASUS A4S00K notebooks.
