HP Pavilion dm4, dv5, dv6 & dv7 plus ProBook S-Series & B-Series hands-on [Video]

The rest of HP's new notebook range may not be quite as eye-catching as the ENVY 14 and ENVY 17, but there are still some gems in the line-up.  The company have partnered with both AMD and Intel for their new Pavilion dm4, dv5, dv6 and dv7 consumer notebooks, together with the ProBook S-Series and B-Series of business-focused machines.  We went hands-on will all of them - including the optional-multitouch dv6 - so check out more details and first-impressions after the cut.

Dell Inspiron M501R packs new AMD Phenom II X4 CPU; gets Core i3/i5 13R, 14R, 15R & 17R siblings

Dell have outed a new range of Inspiron notebooks, the 13R, 14R, 15R, 17R and M501R, each offering greater customisation potential than their non-R siblings.  While Intel's Core i3 and i5 CPUs serve most of the new models, the Dell Inspiron M501R is perhaps more interesting since it marks the debut of AMD's new Phenom II X4 mobile processor, codenamed Champlain, and previously only expected sometime in May 2010.  There's still no sign of an official press release from AMD themselves about the chip.

Club 3D unveils Radeon HD5450 Noiseless Edition

Video cards are used for more than just playing games. They are used in HTPC machines for better graphics and video and they are often used in machines for video and audio editing too. When you are using a video card in a HTPC often, you want components that are very quiet so they don’t disrupt the movie you are watching.

ASUS Republic of Gamers MATRIX 5870 auto-overclocks for 19% FPS boost

Oh, it just gets better and better.  Hot on the already pretty sparking heels of the 5870 EYEFINITY 6/6S/2GD5 comes the card we've perhaps really been waiting for, the ASUS Republic of Gamers MATRIX 5870.  First spotted in the wild last month, the ROG MATRIX 5870 takes ATI's new Radeon HD 5870, tickles the core GPU clock speed to 894MHz and then throws in ASUS' Super Hybrid Engine (SHE) that automatically overclocks the card depending on what it's being used for.  So, ASUS reckon, you'll see an average 19-percent performance boost in FPS games set to maximum detail, or a whopping 50-percent boost to 2D graphics.
