Arespark AS100 Bluetooth Speaker and MP3 Player Review
     Tue, Jul 07 2015 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"I get all kinds of mobile accessories for review and most of them are just more of the same, but every once in a while I run across on that stands out from the crowd like what I have today for review does. The Arespark AS100 Bluetooth speaker is wireless speaker yes, but it also has a microSD slot that turns it into a basic MP3 player. The AS100 also comes with a 3.5mm cable so it can be used with non-Bluetooth devices and it can be used as a speakerphone if need be. All that aside, the speaker itself is very well made, it’s durable and seems rugged and it sounds good and it can get very loud. Read on to learn more… "

Toshiba AL13SXB60EN 600GB SAS 12Gb/s HDD Review
     Tue, Jul 07 2015 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most people i know think that enthusiasts and serious gamers are the ones who always choose the fastest hardware components money can buy for their own systems but that's really far from the truth at least in regard to storage media. In that area for most consumers (enthusiasts and serious gamers included) even a regular SSD is good enough to do the job but for professionals and enterprise users alike there are more important things to take into account other than performance with endurance and the typical price/capacity ratio leading the list. There are of course several enterprise-grade SSD models in the market as we speak but unfortunately to date they haven't been able to catch up with mechanical HDD models in terms of price (that may change in 2016 however) and in some cases even endurance. Toshiba has released several enterprise-grade HDD lines over the past 3 years or so and they continue to do so this time with the brand new AL13SXB60EN (and to date we're the first to take a look).

AMD and NVIDIA.
     Mon, Jul 06 2015 | 4:30P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Rather than rail against this quad-core trend and question its necessity, I decided instead to see just how much of a difference the processor alone might make with some game benchmarks. This quickly escalated into more and more system configurations as I accumulated parts, eventually arriving at 36 different configurations at various price points. Yeah, I said 36. (Remember that Budget Gaming Shootout article from last year? It's bigger than that!) Some of the charts that follow are really long (you've been warned), and there’s a lot of information to parse here. I wanted this to be as fair as possible, so there is a theme to the component selection. I started with three processors each (low, mid, and high price) from AMD and Intel, and then three graphics cards (again, low, mid, and high price) from AMD and NVIDIA.

     Mon, Jul 06 2015 | 4:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus Republic Of Gamers G551J laptop delivers the styling cues we have come to expect so you get a black and red colour scheme with red accents on the WASD keys and red back lights for the keyboard. If you take a squint inside the cooling exhaust vent you’ll find it is red inside there too.

SAPPHIRE R9 Fury X Review
     Mon, Jul 06 2015 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD's new flagship is designed primarily for high-resolution gaming. Whether it be 4K, multi-panel Eyefinity, or a VR headset, AMD want gaming on Fury X to be the best possible experience and have extended that to the quality of the cooler, enclosure, and assuaging concerns over heat.

Arkham Knight Benchmarked, Performance Review
     Mon, Jul 06 2015 | 12:47P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Batman: Arkham Knight, the fourth entry in Warner Brother's Batman: Arkham series, is based on the same Unreal Engine 3 as its predecessor and an Nvidia-sponsored title. Favoring one camp of GPUs is hardly the least contentious way to launch a new game, however it seems this release would have rattled cages regardless. Countless Nvidia and AMD users have expressed anger about Arkham Knight's performance and stuttering issues. Here's what we found in our tests.

AMD’s new high-end graphics card
     Mon, Jul 06 2015 | 12:45P | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Yesterday saw the official release of AMD’s new high-end graphics card, the Fury X. Giant chip, many shader cores, HBM, no HDMI 2.0, small board, liquid cooling – the specs are old news by now. However, what all readers do like to know more about is benchmarks and we published a lot of them yesterday in a remarkably succinct (we saved the long exposition bits for our Dutch review) article that is all about graphs, graphs, graphs. 12 games, plus 3DMark, 3 resolutions, 2 quality settings. Oh, and some temperature, noise and overclocking (incl. HBM overclocking) results, but who’s counting.
