     Thu, Nov 26 2015 | 5:49P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
These days, there are so many mobile GPU models that it has become quite impossible to keep up with the different configurations. Therefore, we decided to compile this guide to provide an easy reference for those who are interested in comparing the specifications of the various mobile GPUs in the market as well as those already obsolescent or obsolete. Currently covering 545 mobile GPUs, this comprehensive comparison will allow you to easily compare up to 24 different specifications for each and every GPU. We hope it will prove to be a useful reference. We will keep this guide updated regularly so do check back for the latest updates.

 [LATEST]  NZXT H440 New 2015 Edition & Hue+ Review @
     Thu, Nov 26 2015 | 5:48P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The H440 2015 Edition slipped onto the market in a rather subtle way in October but hopes to make a lasting impression. NZXT has built on the success of the popular H440 by refining the cosmetics – furnishing this 2015 Edition with an all-black matt finish which contains anti-scratch properties. The height and depth of the chassis has increased and a PWM fan hub makes an appearance too.

 [LATEST]  G.Skill KM780 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Thu, Nov 26 2015 | 5:48P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to gaming peripherals, G.Skill aren’t usually the first brand that come to mind. This isn’t surprising, given that G.Skill are well-known for their memory products, but they’re a fairly new player when it comes to gaming hardware. Of course, we recently reviewed their new gaming mouse, the MX780 RGB, and it was absolutely amazing, so if this keyboard can capture even half of the quality of that product, we should be in for a real treat here today.

 [LATEST]  Nvidia Shield Android TV Review
     Thu, Nov 26 2015 | 5:48P | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Nvidia Shield TV is here at last, the much-anticipated successor to the already feature packed and exciting line of Android-powered Nvidia gaming devices. The original Shield is a great little hand-held, and we’ve tested it extensively since it was released, pushing the limits of what can be done with it, just check out the links below to see more. Then we have the Shield Tablet, a mini powerhouse of mobile gaming that still dominates the mobile gaming market for Android, in my opinion at least. Now we’ve got the Shield TV, a set-top box packed with some of the latest and greatest Nvidia mobile hardware, promising greater performance than any previous Shield devices, and more than any other competing devices on the market.

 [LATEST]  Gigabyte Z170X-UD5 Motherboard Review: All Bases Covered
     Thu, Nov 26 2015 | 5:47P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In fighting game circles, there is an interesting technique called "option select" which is essentially a combination of moves that guarantee the maximum possible best-case coverage depending on the scenario. While performing the exact same button or joystick combination, the result changes and switches in reaction to the opponent just by virtue of how the game engine works. It is …

 [LATEST]  iClever Foldable Wireless Keyboard Review
     Thu, Nov 26 2015 | 5:47P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we will be looking at a new product from iClever, the foldable wireless keyboard. This pocket-size keyboard is a perfect accessory for those who like the agility of keyboard typing yet don't like to carry a laptop around. It's the perfect keyboard for answering emails of lengthy texts, as we all know the thumbs can only go so fast on their own.

 [LATEST]  Philips 272G5DYEB 27-inch G-Sync display review
     Thu, Nov 26 2015 | 5:46P | Monitors | PermaLink

It offers G-Sync up to 144Hz, incorporates a TN panel and a 1ms response time, with a 1080p native resolution. It’s also considerably more affordable than some of the more high-end G-Sync displays.

 [LATEST]  ASUS Maximus VIII Ranger Review
     Thu, Nov 26 2015 | 5:46P | Motherboards | PermaLink

Club3D R9 Nano 4GB HBMv1 Graphics Card Review
     Mon, Nov 23 2015 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
eTeknix has fought hard over the last few months to be able to bring you the Fiji articles that we have, some may have been a little late, but we have managed to get them out to you one way or another. Stock levels of the Fiji core and HBM have been extremely limited, so AMD had to make the tough decision to only allow an severely limited number of media samples and plumb the rest to the consumer market.

Toshiba Canvio Desk 4TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive Review
     Sun, Nov 22 2015 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Whether it's CPUs, graphics cards, hard disk drives, solid state drives, mainboards, peripherals, consoles, media players, LCD screens and pretty much everything in the electronics industry there's one constant that applies to all regardless. When the newest models get released prices of the previous generation ones (and the ones before) take a serious hit. Because of that although currently we even have 8TB external 3.5" Desktop HDDs in the market (even higher capacity models in RAID) what are really popular amongst most consumers are the previous generation 4/5TB models which have become very affordable after having their prices cut more than just once. Toshiba released their latest Canvio Desk line of Desktop USB 3.0 hard drives a while back and again although the top of the line model features 6TB of available capacity today we're taking a look at the 4TB one.

BIOS Option Of The Week - Rx6C OverWrite.
     Sun, Nov 22 2015 | 4:02P | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Rx6C register is 8-bits wide and therefore can handle up to eight SDRAM settings. Of course, the number and nature of the SDRAM settings controlled by this register vary from chipset to chipset. This BIOS feature only functions as a switch that determines if the BIOS is allowed to overwrite the default settings of the SDRAM Control register. A separate BIOS feature called OverWrite Rx6C is used to..."

Alienware Steam Machine Review
     Sun, Nov 22 2015 | 4:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The term Steam Machine is something we’ve been hearing for a while now, but the actual real Steam Machines are only coming out now. A Steam Machine is meant to bridge the gap between a console gamer and traditional PC gamer. It brings the Steam experience and Steam’s vast library of games to the living room. Even if you are a traditional PC gamer there are times you just want to sit in front of the TV and play some games. Many people have already done this by building their own HTPC system, but these are bulky and more often than not underpowered. Steam Machines are designed to be smaller than most current-generation consoles, which means you can easily add them to your home theater setup. A true Steam Machine is powered by SteamOS and comes with an official Steam Controller. Today we are looking at Alienware’s Steam Machine (model: ASM100-2980BLK) which is powered by an Intel Core i3 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPU with 2GB of memory, 8GB of DDR3 memory, and a 1 TB hard drive. Come on this adventurewith us as we see what Alienware’s Steam Machine and the SteamOS is all about."

Phanteks Enthoo Evolve ATX Galaxy Silver Edition Review
     Sun, Nov 22 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It seems that the minimalist design is starting to become more and more popular these days. There are still a few companies out there that make what we call pre-modded cases (Those are the ones with all the aggressive angles and funky shaped window panels) but, for the most part most of the modern cases are very minimalist. That just …
