Hands On With NVIDIA Tegra X1 With Benchmarks and Video
     Wed, Jan 28 2015 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the last few years, NVIDIA has used the lead-up to the Consumer Electronics Show to announce new Tegra-related products and technologies. This year is no different. Earlier today, we got together with representatives from NVIDIA to talk about the company’s upcoming Tegra X1 system on a chip (SoC) and see the reference platform in action, running a variety of benchmarks and demos. At last year’s CES, NVIDIA announced the Tegra K1 featuring a Kepler-derived GPU, which has since found its way into the excellent SHIELD Tablet, Google’s Project Tango device, and the Nexus 9. The Tegra K1 proved to be a strong performer, in both its quad-core 32-bit and dual-core 64-bit configurations, and the 192-core Kepler-class GPU was a clear leader in the space. The Tegra X1, however, is a significant departure from the K1 in that it features a Maxwell-derived GPU and eight CPU cores; four ARM A57 cores and four A53s in a big.LITTLE configuration...

Plus, with the release of lower power 95W FX processors a few months ago, …

Logitech G402 @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Jan 28 2015 | 9:02A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the introduction of their G502 Logitech introduced the world to a new styling direction and at the same time they also introduced the first mouse that they ever named. Well with the G402 we are back at it again with their second mouse sharing the same aggressive styling and yes it also has a name. The G402 is also known as the Hyperion Fury. The G402 is Logitech’s FPS focused mouse that sits as a price point just below the G502. This replaces the G400s, an evolution of the original G5 mouse that played a big part in creating the gaming peripheral market altogether. So you can say this mouse has big shoes to fill.

Posted by: STAFF
The phablet market isn't just the iPhone 6 Plus or the Galaxy Note line. While they get a ton of attention from the media and marketing departments, there are plenty of other options available. One such option is Huawei's Ascend Mate 7, a six-inch handset that is full of surprises and certainly worth more attention than it gets.

We have on the review bench the Cherry MX Blue switch edition of Cougar's 600K, a mechanical gaming keyboard that follows in the footsteps of the Cougar 700K without programmable keys and macros (or even configuration software) but still sports backlit LED keys anyway. See if retains more than just the 700K's bells and whistles in our evaluation!

ZOTAC ZBOX Sphere OI520+ Review
     Tue, Jan 27 2015 | 4:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Comprising of an Intel i5 Processor, 4GB of speedy DDR3 and a 500GB hard disk it has the specification to match many 'home PC' but has the footprint (or rather a diameter) of just 16cm. It has plenty of connectivity, its looks great, it is easy to upgrade if you wish, has a low power consumption rate and should perform as well as any other PC with a similar specification. What ZOTAC have created here is truly astonishing when you look back over the years on how PCs have evolved to what we see today but enough reminiscing. Time we put this product to the test...

Plextor M6e Black Edition SSD Review (256GB) - Back in Black!
     Tue, Jan 27 2015 | 1:15P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SATA 6Gb/s has been a bottleneck for SSDs over the past few years, utilizing multiple SSDs in RAID arrays has been best practice to overcome it. Plextor had seen this problem and originally released the M6e early last year in attempt to target the gamer market. While PCIe SSDs were not uncommon, their product is one of the only easy to boot M.2 PCIe SSDs out. There is no need of any special drivers, you just plug and play. By utilizing a PCIe 2.0 x2 connection, the M6e promises speeds that break past the SATA 6Gb/s barrier. Gamers and enthusiasts who wanted faster sequential performance now had a great option to buy. However, while their target market is the gamer crowd, their product doesnt reflect that aesthetically. As you can see in our review, the drive and adapter is made out of an OEM green PCB. It isnt that flashy or cool to look at, put bluntly, it is just boring. Because of this, Plextors team decided to go back to the drawing board and create a new edition that reflected what gamers want in their rigs, something that looks cool and goes fast. At CES this year, Plextor unveiled their M6e Black Edition."

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
