Finally, The First 'Modern Warfare Trailer 3'

Adrenaline pumping you probably already heard this news. Although it seems so small, but a small peek of what is offered by Modern Warfare 3 is already enough to make the gaming world in an uproar. The gameplay is born from the hands of developers reliably under Activision this giant flag is being eagerly awaited. Moreover, many new things that will be presented in it.

For you who do not know, Modern Warfare will present three still plot continued from MW2 with some old characters that are also presented. Call it Soap, Price, and Makarov. Several new characters are also presented. Rumors spread that we also will play a new personnel with the code name of Frost and the Sandman. The focus of the war we will move from the U.S. to the three major countries in Europe, namely Britain, Germany and France.

From the trailer, you can see yourself trying to build suspense in this MW3 Activision. Some elements of "dramatization" typical still appear in this series. The battle of the massive scale and destructive seems to be a selling points that make the gamer MW3 maintain loyalty in this game. But one thing is quite intriguing, the graphics engine seems to be presented has not changed much.

Talking MW3 means talking competitor from EA, Battlefield which is now entering the third series as well. With competition and big money behind each of the existing franchise, the two big games this competition will be interesting to observe. Moreover Battlefield 3 "looks" brings graphics quality is much better than the existing trailer than MW3. So, which one would you choose?

NVIDIA Optimus for Linux

Have you heard about Optimus NVIDIA technology? The technology to allow notebooks with Intel chips and NVIDIA graphics cards to exchange automatically as needed. If you need a process of computing with a high graphic level, then the system will automatically work with graphics cards using NVIDIA. However, if you only need a lightweight computing activities, the system will use a graphics chip from Intel alone. The advantages of this technology is the survival of the notebook, if only to survive using the batteries, will become longer. Want to know more about the technology? Please read our previous article "NVIDIA Optimus Review: Life Be More Easily". 

What are the weaknesses of this Optimus NVIDIA technology? Technology can not be run on operating systems other than Windows. However, it is about to change. There are some developers who are currently trying to run the technology on the Linux operating system! Currently, the developers are working on Bumblebee, an open source that will realize the dream of notebook users with the Linux operating system. The developers are being sought for NVIDIA Optimus work in Ubuntu, Debian, OpenSUSE, Fedora, and Arch Linux. For the future, the list will be added again by these developers. Such information we collect through 

This information is enough to bring fresh air for users of notebooks with the Linux operating system because they can choose to use Intel or NVIDIA graphics. Much remains to be repaired because Bumblebee is still not complete as Optimus, such as switching graphics automatically, yet has a list of games, and any application that can use the NVIDIA GPU. However, in our opinion, only a matter of time until finally 'Bumblebee' will be as strong as Optimus.

NVIDIA Optimus Review : Life Be More Easily

What is this technology? Is NVIDIA managed to obtain technology from the Transformers? Haha, of course it is only imaginary. However, NVIDIA has to offer with Optimus technology is indeed like a dream notebook users.

In short, with Optimus, notebook users do not need to bother when I had to choose: a notebook with fast graphics system but poor battery endurance, or a notebook with integrated graphics system (the famous are less able to play heavy graphic content) but with good battery life.

Why would NVIDIA need to bother to create this technology? The answer is because need for this technology is very high. The main cause is due to the high number of notebook users today. According to Gartner, the growth of notebooks have surpassed desktops, ranging from 2009.Tren this year will only be increasing in the future.

Requirements : Battery life and performance

Notebook computers are portable and can be used without the need to search your electric outlet. Both these important points to note. For portability, the notebook should be quite mild. To be able to work anywhere, the notebook should have a good battery life. Power adapter is one of the extra burden when you carry the notebook. So, a good notebook should be able to carry without requiring a power adapter. This means the battery resistance should be very good.

Performance is a critical requirement. Failure to satisfy netbook users in its first year attendance is proof positive. Netbooks do not have enough performance to run many applications that are important. In fact, running a YouTube video with HD resolution of course, been very hard done by netbooks. In the end, the trend again turned to a more powerful notebook.

So far, notebook with additional graphics system (discrete graphics) are always faced with a problem. The battery resistance is generally bad. This is because notebooks have to supply extra power to the graphics system (VGA) that powerful. In fact, the graphics system is not always working at maximum capacity. Thus, power supplied to the graphics system tends to be wasted.

Meanwhile, a notebook with integrated graphics system (such as Intel HD Intel 4500MHD or graphics on i3, i5, and i7) has a tendency durable good battery. However, this system has a graphics capability that is sometimes inadequate. For example, to play 3D games, integrated graphics system is generally difficult to run smoothly. At the time of playback HD movies (especially Full HD 1080p MKV format), integrated graphics system will be quite overwhelmed. It is not capable, but all systems would work hard until the system response becomes impaired just because running the full HD movie. Want to try to convert some movies while playing a 1080p Full HD movies? This system is certainly not the right choice for these needs.

Switchable Graphics: the right solution?

Looking at the above conditions, you may think, "why not make a notebook that has two graphics systems and allow users to choose the graphics system which is needed?"This is done several notebook vendors. Notebooks with Intel Core i3/i5/i7 who have integrated graphics system combined with discrete graphics system. Users are free to choose the graphics system where needed.

The problem is, there are still many users who do not know how to do the switching between two graphics systems. For those who know how, there are still problems with human negligence that often forget to do the switching. Suddenly, the notebook was running out of battery in the middle of a presentation, as users forgetperform switch to integrated graphics system more efficient power.

Another problem that arises is the method of switching itself. In the early stages, the switching method still requires the user to restart the notebook. While the last method, although the notebook does not need to be restarted, users are still faced with the problem when there are few applications that are "holding" the graphics system to refrain from switching ( eg,browser ). This makes you have to turn off the application first, can do the switching.

But did you know that you also memilliki opportunity to become part of one of the largest military operation of Navy Seals this? Of course not directly, but the video games offer the possibility of it through a little creativity.

With so many changes that were presented, again, Ubisoft managed to make me and maybe you get into groups of gamers who are looking forward to this game. I look forward to the Assassin's Den and the Crafting system that seems very attractive, reminiscent of a viscous element in the strategy games and RPGs. Quite curious about the ability Ezio at the age of 50 years. He will be a grandfather in the gaming world's most funky after Solid Snake.

Newest Games 'Dragon Ball' in 2011

Dragon Ball is already touching the gaming industry since the industry started to grow, from two-dimensional visualization display to a full three-dimensional. From the simple to the battle system that requires a combination of movement difficult. Although most of it fighting genre, Dragon Ball was once present in unique genres such as adventure and RPG. Namco Bandai become the exclusive publisher of all existing game Dragon Ball.

Latest Project Dragon Ball games are scheduled to be released in autumn 2011 it was not explained in detail. Site Namco Bandai has just released a little teaser via his official website.

Diablo III Will Release External Beta Test

Gamers may already feel pessimistic about the progress shown by the Diablo III. How could I not? Blizzard itself has announced this game since long ago but if no progress and the realization of meaning. Slowly, the various screenshots and gameplay teaser was given to the public, but an opportunity to at least try to live has never been given.

For gamers who can not wait to play this game, calm down a little longer because we now only need a little more patience. Through its CEO, Mike Morhaime, Blizzard announced it would soon release an external beta test for Diablo III in the third quarter of 2011 this. This means the next few months longer, between July and September. Unfortunately, there is no clear way that is sure to enjoy this beta test. Is Blizzard going to distribute it through the battle net?

Morhaime also added that they had held an internal beta test for all branches of Blizzard last week, and Diablo III have a very positive response. Therefore, they dared to take him "out of the cage". About the release date, Mohaime not want to brag. He himself admits that the initial target of trying to be pursued is the release of this year. However, he did not want to sacrifice the quality of this game later. Blizzard would prefer (again) that would eliminate the time release.

Although no release date, an external beta test it already looks very promising. At least, gamers will have the opportunity to feel directly the quality of which would be presented Blizzard in Diablo III. Moreover, if we remember how Diablo II in the past can hypnotize at gamers since the game system is presented. I bet you that gamers will certainly not wait to get to try this game.

Review Netbook Asus VX6 Lamborghini

Some time ago, Asus launches a netbook called VX6 Lamborghini. You wonder why Asus add-frills word "Lamborghini" at the end of this series? Apparently Asus is working with the Italian automotive manufacturer to design this netbook. Actually, the number of notebook manufacturers are working with automotive manufacturers can still be counted on the fingers. However, if the two companies work together, surely they can produce a product other than normal, like this Lamborghini VX6.

Asus VX6  Lamborghini comes in the form of charming. This product is designed specifically with forms that adopt or incorporate elements of the famous Lamborghini car. The side of this netbook uses aluminum finishing doff. Not only found at the side of the course, this alumium line connects to the inside with the power button and express gate on the left and right. Finishing makes this netbook looks very solid. Asus VX6 offered in black and white with piano finishing. In addition, the symbol of the pride of the Lamborghini, the Bull of gold, also appear to adorn this product. If seen at a glance, this netbook product is very similar to the super car.

A netbook products are usually equipped with a screen size of 10 inches. However, Asus VX6 Lamborghini is trying to be different by using a screen measuring 12 inches. The screen has a resolution of 1366 × 768, of course, can increase the value of ergonomic screen so your eyes will become more comfortable when using this netbook. Netbook Asus Lamborghini VX6 using D525 with an Intel Atom 1.8GHz speed and 3GB of DDR3 memory as the main engine of this device. Data storage capacity provided relatively large for a netbook, 320GB hard disk ready to use for storing your files in this netbook.

Express gate is also available in this netbook Asus VX6 Lamborghini. To activate this feature you can just press the power button located on the left above the keyboard. Express gate is an operating system that can be used in a matter of under 5 seconds. In the feature, you can do various things, such as browsing, viewing pictures, listening to songs, and so forth. His ability is limited, but when you are pressed for time and must immediately check your e-mail, then the feature is very helpful in Expess Gate.

Use of the Atom processor is equipped with NVIDIA Ion making Asus decided to give a very complete connectivity ports (for a netbook) in VX6 Lamborghini. This netbook is equipped with USB3.0 port in blue to distinguish it with another USB port and comes with an HDMI port. Both these ports you can use to change Asus VX6 Lamborghini become a mini media player products.

Chicklet keyboard model.

The inside of this netbook is not less interesting to the outside. Part hand rest use a combination black finish and aluminum doff doff at the top that also serves as a speaker and power button. When we look at the touchpad, we feel the form is slightly different from similar products. With the aluminum that surrounds it, form a touch pad looks like a vent on the front of the Lamborghini car bumper! Keyboard Asus VX6 Lamborghini very convenient to use because it feels soft, as well as the function of the left and right click buttons. You do not need hands are too powerful to suppress.


SysMark 2007

Performance of the Atom processor in this product are not much different from our usual type of processors found in netbooks. Results you can definitely see in the chart above. With these results in fact we still do not recommend using this netbook out of context, namely for computing activities by using the application that does not demand high performance. Although AX6 Lamborghini just entering the netbook class, with the use of Ion Asus NVIDIA VX6 can run the movie with full HD1080P with a good resolution.

MobileMark 2007

Survival of this netbook also includes good, Asus VX6 lasted 272 minutes, equivalent to 4 hours with the battery of 5200mAh. In fact, we expect more, but with the use of NVIDIA Ion seems so difficult to achieve.


Use NVIDIA Ion, making the process of transcoding HD movies to various resolutions to walk fast enough compared to a netbook without NVIDIA Ion. Proved that NVIDIA CUDA can run to complete the task this transcoding.

NVIDIA Performance Ion

Ion NVIDIA graphics performance that is used does not allow this notebook to play 3D games well. Based on the results of benchmark 3D Mark 2006, under number 3000, is seen clearly if there are graphics that can not be used to play 3D games with FPS above 30, even with the lowest settings and resolution though. However, arcade games can still run well.


For you fans of the world's automotive and technology, the Asus VX6 Lamborghini seems to reflect your interest in both worlds. We must recognize that the breakthrough made ​​by Asus in creating this product other than in the other. Netbook will also have more value in the presence of USB3.0 and HDMI port. In fact, we expect these mobile devices use processors more powerful and muscular so it can run applications smoothly middle to upper super car like a Lamborghini like when you press the gas pedal until they run out on the freeway.

  • USB3.0 and HDMI port.
  • Design charming.
  • Screen 12 ".

  • Graphics are embedded less able to play 3D games.

Start Up HDD Vs SSD

Many have asked us about the benefits of SSD. Previously, indeed we have made ​​several tests to answer this question, a good test on your notebook or desktop. The use of SSD is basically very useful. Currently, the price of an SSD with greater capacity is generally still relatively expensive. However, for the 64GB capacity down still affordable. 64GB capacity is enough to run the operating system and some simple applications.

For desktops, we've done the comparison test start up Windows 7 by a number of configurations, either with your hard disk or SSD. You can read the article "Comparison Speed ​​Startup Windows 7: SSD and HDD". On the device was approximately the same notebook. We also had to replace a hard disk with SSD and the results of the test you can see in the article "Profit Upgrade Notebook Hard Disk".

Solid State Drive, or SSD is a storage device that would replace the hard disk. The advantage of SSD is the absence of mechanical devices. Therefore, the SSD will be more resistant to vibration. SSD also uses solid-state memory so the speed of read and writes much faster than hard disk that uses a rotating disc. If you are still confused about the SSD, you can read it at "6 Things You Need to Know About the SSD".

In comparative tests SSD vs. Hard disk below, we will invite you to see how quickly an SSD start up Windows 7 compared to a hard disk. Notebooks that we use is the yard notebooks Acer Aspire 4750G series. The notebook we reviewed earlier in the article "Review Acer Aspire 4750G: Notebook Sandy Bridge Affordable With Optimus Technologies. " Acer Aspire 4750G uses Intel Core i5 Sandy Bridge with 2GB memory and Hard disk of 640GB capacity with 5400RPM rotational speed.

We will do the start up of Windows 7. First, by using a hard disk installed. Then we try to replace it with an Intel 320GB SSD. SSD itself has been our previous review. Both operating systems are identical. We copy the operating system residing on the hard disk to the SSD with a testing program to maintain consistency. Happy watching!

Assassin's Creed: Revelations

After a recent series of rumors about Assassin's Creed Revelations with details that are still in the clouds, a clarity now present. Through the exclusive source of information obtained from GameInformer, gamers are now able to understand the timeline that will be presented in the game that his plan will come out in 2011 this. Who are the main characters will we get? The plot, such as what would be presented?

Assassin's Creed: Assassin Creed Revelations is not a 3, so it is not surprising that the offer is still the same character. You'll play as Desmond, Altair, and Ezio in the series this time. As usual, the timeline of each of these characters will vary, but the focus remains on Ezio story that is now reportedly going to act outside of Italy. Ottoman Empire and the great city Constantinople (Turkey) will be the focus of struggle Ezio this time and the plan will be the cover story of his epic.

A variety of new weapons and equipment would be presented, so as to produce a much different game experience than the previous series. Not to mention, Revelations will immediately take the last story of the Brotherhood, to give a little clarity would be the fate of Desmond after the ending is quite shocking. Ubisoft will also bring the multiplayer experience that much better and different.

Although I myself quite disappointed that Ezio once again become the main character in this series, but at the same adrenaline pumping faster and curiosity to be playing this latest series. If this is indeed the last series Ezio, and Altair had a "chance" to take a larger proportion of the story, then the Assassin Creed: Revelations will be a very interesting game. No doubt!
