…Cryo Performance Computing will build you a kick-ass PC?

Cryo Performance Computing

The following is a sponsored (though unbiased) post: Cryo Performance Computing makes custom gaming PC’s and high performance desktop computers for a number of different users, including gamers, professionals, audio, video & multimedia creators, and home theater buffs.

Each computer that Cryo makes is specially designed to perform at the peak of its potential, and they utilize a number of different tools and techniques to reach that potential, including a process called blueprinting and “Cryo Boost”.

Blueprinting is when they design a system by looking at each of the components to make sure there is no ‘least common denominator’ holding everything else back. For instance, if you buy the top of the line video card, but your processor can’t handle it, then you’re not getting the full capability out of your video card. To prevent that from happening, Cryo “carefully selects individual components that [they] know will all compliment each other and work well together”.

Cryo Boost is a process that Cryo uses to go beyond just overclocking and performance tuning into a whole new and revolutionary way of designing, building and testing a PC. This “end-to-end lifecycle of innovative idea to end product” includes:

  • User requirement driven design
  • Reference to a huge knowledgebase of component experience
  • Experienced industry professionals
  • Disciplined and thorough testing and verification
  • Just-in-time building and fulfillment
  • Technology and delivery partners
  • Participation in Web 2.0, blogs and forums

Which results in:

  • 30-50% better performance over any mainstream manufacturer
  • 30% longer product lifecycle
  • Reduced obsolescence
  • Over-engineered key components
  • Personal and individual service

One thing to note is that Cryo is based in the UK, so you’ll need to take things like warranty and shipping into consideration before making your purchase (for instance, they do their pricing in Pounds) but considering the fact that they’ve been “architecting, designing and building PC technology hardware and software for over 20 years”, I don’t think you should have any problems with their products.

Plus, if you need even more convincing that they know their stuff, just check out their ‘Free Stuff’ area, where they’ve posted a number of technical articles, useful tools and useful links, as well as their ‘Cryo Benchmarks’, where they show off various performance reports that have been done on their system, including the Custom PC Benchmark record that they set with the Velox in December of 2008.

…Newegg is crazy on the inside?


AnandTech recently had a chance to go behind the scenes of Newegg’s newest New Jersey facility, and with a stated goal of getting packages into customers’ hands within two days of ordering, you can bet that there’s a fair bit of automation going on inside of this billion dollar company, which, in my opinion, makes the tour all the more interesting.

From the picker and the peanut gun to the box maker and the wizard, it’s a look at what makes Newegg tick, and also a look at the future of product management.

Plus, haven’t you always wondered what goes on after you click that “Confirm Order” button?

…Leopard is coming?

Apple Leopard

The date has finally been finalized; On Friday, October 26, 2007, Apple will release Leopard, its latest operating system, to hoards of screaming Apple fanboys.

Ok, so it might not be that dramatic, but considering how long it’s been since their last release, a new OS is kind of a big deal. Plus, as Vista continues to flounder, it’s time once again for Apple to one up the ‘Soft boys.

Looking to get in on the action? Amazon has a pre-order deal going on right now, and you can save $20 if you’re willing to wait a few days for shipping.

Check out Apple’s site for a list of the over 300 new features that Leopard is bringing, and prepare to be upgraded.
