     Wed, May 04 2016 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ATX Mid-Tower has always been a favorite of PC builders. It can be transported with relative ease, while still managing to hold a respectable amount of very high-end hardware. The Spec-Alpha is Corsair's latest entry to the market and has gamers squarely in its sights. Priced at $80, this is a case that we very much expect to be a dominant force for a few reasons.

Zotac GTX 980 Ti AMP! Edition Review
     Wed, May 04 2016 | 2:56P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This will probably be our last GTX 980 Ti review before the next generation of cards from Nvidia are released. The speculation is they will be named the GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 continuing the product naming convention Nvidia have been using for quite a while now. If you forget the GTX Titan cards, out of the budget of most the natural flagship card is the Ti, at least judging by the GTX 980 Ti range and its performance. The production run has now been stopped, and less than a year after it started.

GIGABYTE X99P-SLI LGA 2011v3 Motherboard Review

MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 5 Eco M.2 SSD Review (480GB)
     Wed, May 04 2016 | 2:55P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’ve been able to test our fair share of SSDs over the years and, to this date, there remains a constant. Prices drop. Where we once saw a 32GB SSD peak at $5000 in 2007, today’s world is vastly different and 1TB SSDs are now available at just over the $300 mark. Value is key in technology and has always been. On the test bench today, we have the MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 5 Eco M.2 480GB SATA 3 SSD and this SSD just may be the best value available for the dollar right now at $129.99. To think that this little SSD is just shy of that .25/GB mark is incredible…but can it perform?

     Wed, May 04 2016 | 2:55P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The size of the PC market has been flat to decreasing in recent years, but Intel has always found ways to maintain solid profitability in their PC division. Right now Intel’s strategy appears to be focusing on the growing 2 in 1s and PC gaming market, but there is also growth and profitability to be had with the Intel NUC mini PC lineup. Intel has recently released their 4th generation NUC code named ‘Swift Canyon’ that features the latest 6th Generation Intel Core ‘Skylake’ series of processors. The Skylake powered NUCs have been around for several months now, but we just recently got our hands on one and have been able to take it out for a test drive. The NUC Kit NUC6i5SYK / NUC6i5SYH are the mainstream Intel Core i5 powered models that we’ll be looking at closer today.
