ECS introduce Durathon technology promising new Durability Standards in PC Industry

Durathon from Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) exclusively delivers a hassle free computing experience by solving common PC hardware problems before they can even occur. A specially devised testing regime – far stricter than common industry standards and combined with the highest quality components, ensures that ECS Durathon motherboards can be relied on stability and reliability far into the future. Durathon derives from Durable and Marathon, which means each board runs through the strenuous testing cycle and guaranteed the ability of working flawlessly even under the most extreme environmental conditions. For PC owners suffering crashes, instability and poor performance, ECS Durathon motherboards go above and beyond industry standards to ensure that your motherboard can now deliver the stability, reliability and performance that we promise. ECS Durathon comprises four interlocking tests and enhancements together to protect PCs and defeat many of the most common causes of hardware problems and system instability. Ultimate Hardware Protection ECS Durathon motherboards must have the highest level Bi-Directional Splitting Glass Fabric, which is 3 times more effective humidity protection than general glass fabric. ECS Bi-Directional Splitting Glass Fabric narrows the vacant space between the glass fabric of the PCB which can lower air permeability for dampness proofing and reduces short circuit or burn out malfunction. It improves the thermal stress of the PCB and makes th...

Club 3D launches the worlds first Multi Stream Transport (MST) Hub!

Club 3D are proud to announce the world’s first Multi Stream Transport (MST) Hub. This practical device is probably the most budget friendly way to add more display devices to existing desktop or mobile systems fitted with a DisplayPort (DP) output. Display devices have always been an integral part of the PC experience. Whether it is in the form of a desktop monitor, a notebook’s embedded panel, or the touch screen of a PC tablet, display devices play a vital role in defining the user’s visual experience. Connecting more display devices to existing systems has become increasingly more important. Whether it is for home use, allowing different display devices showing different applications or multimedia, more display devices means more possibilities. Or for corporate use, allowing the productivity per work station to increase drastically if more display devices can be used. How does it work? Simply put, the MST Hub uses the extreme high bandwith signal from a DisplayPort 1.2 output and splits this signal to three separate signals with own DisplayPort outputs. This offers the possibility to quickly and easily add up to 3 VGA, DVI, HDMI or DP display devices to your set-up. The display devices can be connected using passive adapters. Product Features Standards compliance/support: Displayport v1.2, displayport v1.1a,VESA DDM Standard, HDCP V2.0, DisplayID, and EDID v1.4   Supports main link rates of 5.4 Gbps (HBR2), 2.7 Gbps (HBR), and 1.62 Gbps(RBR) from...

3DMark Android updated, over 100,000 downloads in first week

Futuremark Releases 3DMark For Android With more than 100,000 downloads in its first five days in the Google Play store, our 3DMark benchmark app is a big hit with Android users. We’ve collected thousands of results, added hundreds of new devices to our database and replied to lots of great feedback. Given the huge range of Android devices out there, it’s no surprise that there have been a few unexpected issues too. The good news is that we have just rolled out our first update, which fixes many of the more common problems. Benchmark scores are not affected by this update. What’s New in 3DMark Android Edition v1.0.1-949 NEW – You can now search the Device Channel. – You can now report unknown and incorrectly identified devices. FIXED – Fixed a bug that caused crashes for some users. – Fixed the “no score” bug that could cause the test to exit after the demo. – The Device Channel list loads faster and uses less memory. To get the best results we recommend closing all other apps before running 3DMark tests. This appears to be particularly important on Android devices that keep frequently used apps running in the background. If the test stops randomly in the middle of the run, the most likely cause is your device running out of memory. 3DMark is also good at exposing the thermal throttling behaviour of high-powered devices. As these devices heat up they intentionally slow the processor to avoid overheating, which in ...
