The performance gain between this generation and the last issubstantial. Overall, the GT 640 appears to offer performance on parwith the old GT 555M. This should have the effect of lowering themoney you have to spend to buy a laptop with acceptable 3Dperformance. Our Acer Aspire review unit has an MSRP of $799, which isquite a bit less than systems available with the GT 555M.

An Insight to NVIDIAs Next-Gen ION Platform @ tweaktown.com
[Mar-02-10] (0 Comments)

NVIDIA made many of us sit up and take notice of the hardware acceleration of HD video in netbooks and nettops back in 2009 at CES when the company showed off its first ION chip. The device took a while to come to market, but it eventually did and was welcomed by those looking for better HD video performance and graphics in small netbooks and nettops.NVIDIA is now unveiling the successor to the original ION platform; this referred to as Next-Generation ION by NVIDIA, but often called ION 2 in the media. So far the only product to have been unveiled using the platform is the Acer Aspire One 532G. NVIDIA is betting big on the new platform and sees a huge market for netbooks moving forward, especially those that use quality graphics like ION.

Acer Aspire One D250-1165 Netbook @ tweaktown.com
[Aug-09-09] (0 Comments)

Netbooks are very hot right now because of the poor economy and the hottest netbook of them all is the Acer Aspire One. Acer has several Aspire One machines and today we are going to toss the Aspire One D250 netbook onto the test bench and see what it is made of. This machine sports a 10.1-inch LED backlit screen and much more, so if you rare in the market for a netbook, you are in luck. If you have wondered what exactly makes the Aspire One line so popular, this will be the review for you.

Acer Aspire One @ bit-tech.net
[Aug-04-08] (0 Comments)

*There are some issues. Shoddy speakers and a trackpad that is more hand-cramping and difficult than doing the secret ant-man handshake with every ant in a colony are the main problems, but the Aspire One does a good job of overcoming them and still offering great performance and usability. It isn't quite perfect, but it comes damn close and is definitely the most attractive subnotebook we've seen since the Eee PC 701 first landed.

Haze (PS3) @ bit-tech.net
[May-23-08] (0 Comments)

For a game that's had so much hype surrounding it, Haze shouldhave been the perfect game. The problem is that few games rarely liveup to the hype, and Haze falls firmly into that category.Nectar should have been an important part of the game, but instead itcomes across as just another gimmicky power-up. It makes the openingsections of the game far too easy and appears to disappear in the rebelsections of the game, only to be used as an artefact to drive theplotline forward.The storyline itself is hackneyed and feels lazy in its execution. Thetale of the corporate stooge who joins the rebels to bring down thecorporation has been done before and, more importantly, it's been donefar better. There are a few clever twists and turns to the tale laterin the game, but not enough to drag the story out of mediocrity.Taken as a run-of-the-mill FPS, Haze certainly isn't dire, but on theother hand it never really reaches the heights to which it aspires. Ataround six or seven hours to complete, there's not really enough in thesingle player game to keep you coming back after the first playthrough. You might play it again in co-op mode, but even themultiplayer games aren't enough to get you hooked.Haze could have been so much more, but it falls short on so manylevels. The game feels unfinished, as though it has been pushed out ofthe door six months early. Depressingly, it might be that another fewmonths of spit and polish could have produced the game that the hypepromised.Then again, perhaps not. Maybe every game studio is destined to producea game that they're embarrassed about. If that's true, then Haze willbe hiding at the back of Free Radical's closet for a long time to come.

First Look:Acer Aspire Predator Gaming PCs @ bit-tech.net
[May-23-08] (0 Comments)

We certainly believe that Acer has a market in PC World styleretailstores for first time buyers and families wanting something special,but we aren’t sure if Acer will ever break into the market covered byboutique system builders like Vadim. What’s more, most serious gamersare often running on a shoe-string budget, so £1,500+ for a gamingmachine that will be out of date in a year is a lot of money to coughup.We’ll be having a much closer look at one of Acer’s Aspire Predatorgaming PCs in the near future to see if our concerns turn out to bereality once production grade hardware is available.

Just over a year ago, Diceman reviewed the original Q-pack fromAspire. Well, this time around we get to review the second generation of theQ-pack, called the X-Qpack2. It's from the same company, but they also havea new name, which is Apevia. The X-Qpack2 is a micro size aluminum enclosurethat comes in a rainbow of colors:black, silver, blue, green, red, andyellow. These cases have the three sided windows; however, they also offer anon-windowed version, and those come in silver and black. The one offered upfor review is the X-QPACK2-BL/500, which is the blue front with the windowedpanels. So, with a nice choice of colors and styles, it's now time to seeif the second generation enclosure measures up to it's first generation.

Well, with the X-QPack2 of course. The new and improve SFF fromAspire sports pretty much everything the older unit does but adds a littlebit more. 'In what way?' you may ask. Well, lets start with a more powerfulpower supply and better cooling. And this is just a start. Is the newversion the SFF case that can replace your tall tower style unit? Check outthe article.

I remember a few years ago when modding first started to come into the scene, cases with windows and lights were verypopular. Lately many PC case manufactures have been going for the more conservative sleek look. So there are not that many optionswhen looking for a PC case with all that bling. Apevia, which was previously known as Aspire has sent us a great case that has a tonof bling. The X-Discovery case has everything you want in a case, a side window, LED fans, front lights and a clear door. So let'stake a look!

We met Aspire or as they are now known as Apevia at Cebit 2006 and had a nice discussion which led us into starting to review their products. This is our first Apevia review and as they were kind enough to send us their 550W power supply for review. They have named is As550W-bk which seems to have some good specifications such as two 12v rails with 17 and 19 amps each. We will compare this in our testing vs good performers as Ocz Powerstream and a Zalman PSU.

Aspire X-Plorer Case @ viperlair.com
[Oct-26-05] (0 Comments)

Aspire has delivered a very attractive design, on the outside. Once you open the case up, you run into some old fashioned design concepts with some not so thought out solutions and positioning of fans and air-ducts. Although in my situation I have a specific motherboard that causes a position issue, there should be a plan in place for that, as DFI is not exactly a small motherboard supplier in the enthusiast market space.

Aspire X-Cruiser @ overclockersonline.com
[Aug-01-05] (0 Comments)

Aspire was happy to provide me with a black sample, out of the many colors they offer for this case, as I am always partial to the simplicity and elegance of black. Upon removing all the packing material, the first thing about the X-Cruiser that caught my attention was the finish. A very nice, glossy paint was utilized and the black seems very deep and smooth giving the indication that multiple coats were applied. I am a car enthusiast and although this is not an automotive quality finish it is not far off.

Aspire have released quite a multi-function enclosure. Overall the styling of the case is very nice. The three analog gauges on the front not only provide a good amount of information, but also a nice graphic feature. The blue black and silver color scheme really work, and the inclusion of the led fans provide a nice glow in the dark look.

Those of you looking to build a SFF PC from scratch will want to give the Aspire X-QPack a close look as it offers more in terms of options from most pre-built SFF PCs. Overall, it's a decently designed chassis though it doesn't stray too far from the basic fundamentals of a "cube" SFF.

In the above picture, you can see that the power cord "bracket" as well as the "on / off" switch have been constructed of green UV reactive material, fitting in with the overall theme of the power supply. To the upper left of the power switch is the adjustable fan speed controller, which controls the 120mm clear LED fan mounted on the underside of the power supply. Below the fan controller is the 115 / 220 voltage selection switch. To the right of this switch we have another switch with three different color settings. This switch actually controls the LED color of the 120mm fan.

[Nov-15-04] (0 Comments)

The Aspire MR500W Power Supply has a peak wattage of 500 watts which is ample for most PC's. It has two 80mm fans which can be manually controlled, and all of the leads are sleeved. The sleek aluminum casing makes it very light compared to most power supplies. In addition, this package includes a 80mm case fan and a fan rheostat.

World Premiere! AMD Athlon 64 Acer Aspire 1520 notebook Specifications and Photos @ amdboard.com
[Sep-25-04] (0 Comments)

With Acer Ferrari 3400 we had a chance to realize how strong was Acer commitment to offer an attractive AMD notebook lineup with some of the most exquisite designs. Today AMDboard.com, the AMD specialist site°°°, is first again to release the specification and photos of the newest AMD Athlon 64 Acer notebook. Relying on VIA chipsets to provide some unprecedented features like Gigabit LAN or FireWire IEEE1394, the Acer 1520 offers no less than 3 types of graphic chip (NVIDIA GeForce4 448 Go, NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200, NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5700) and a choice of 2 screen sizes (15" and 15.4"). Most interestingly, the Acer 1520 shares the same base than the Acer Sempron notebook version known at Acer 1360 which can already be found in 2 flavors, AS1362WLMi-XPP and AS1362LCi-XPP with both using AMD Mobile Sempron 2800+.

Aspire X-Infinity Case @ Steamed Turtle
[Jun-13-04] (0 Comments)

We have seen all sorts of pre-modified cases made to look like all sorts of things. Aspire has come out with their latest mid tower chassis, the X-Infinity. This new case is designed to look like the front end of a luxury vehicle, and it really does. It's definitely a rather unique design concept but given the popularity of Aspire's other cases, this highly affordable pre-modified case is sure to please those "case modders" or gamers on a budget. Here is our review of the Aspire X-Infinity

Aspire X-Infinity Case Review @ OCIA.net
[May-12-04] (0 Comments)

Now if you notice, this case is called the X-Infinity. What they should have called it is the X-BMW, cause that's exactly what it looks like. It resembles a 5 or 7 series BMW to me. It includes parking lights (inner) and the main headlamps (outer). When the computer is off, the parking lights stay on and when you power up, the headlamps turn on along with the parking lights. This feature is really nice unless your computer is in your room and your trying to sleep at night. I found myself flipping the power supply switch to cut off the parking lights.

Computer modification is a lot like building a custom car, so there is really no suprise that we are starting to see some car themed pre mods. The trick is to not overkill the car theme, I saw a case several months back with a BMW theme, and it was just horrible. Aspire's new case the X-Infinity has a car theme to it, did they over do it or did they find the right balance between car and computer case? You be the judge.
