SanDisk Ultra II 240GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Sep 29 2014 | 4:40A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Samsung released their 840 Series drive back near the end of 2012, it was the first consumer drive to feature TLC (Triple Level Cell) NAND which took everyone by surprise as up until then, MLC drives ruled the consumer roost. The drive proved to be quite popular with decent performance and stellar power usage along with a very modest price tag. SanDisk has decided to drop some TLC NAND into their second iteration of the Ultra series drives which should provide some solid performance numbers along with budget level pricing. Read on to see how it performs."

MSI X99S Gaming 9 @Bjorn3d.com
     Sun, Sep 28 2014 | 4:16P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hot on the heels of the ASUS board our second X99 to arrive is what we see today and it is MSI:s flagship gaming model, the X99S Gaming 9 which is the top of the gaming board spectrum. We have seen gaming boards from MSI a few times now so we kinda know what to expect and with the gaming 9 it looks to have even more tricks up its sleeve as it has the usual suspects such as the Killer gaming network, WiFi AC support, Gaming Peripheral ports and the such, but a new item here in the Streamning engine really peaks our interest.

Sapphire Radeon R9 285 Dual-X OC Video Card Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sun, Sep 28 2014 | 11:10A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD recently announced their Radeon R9 285 graphics card, this was their first major graphics card announcement since the R9 295X2 back in April. Looking at the naming of the card we expect it to be a replacement for the R9 280, but is it really? It has the same number of shaders, TMUs, and ROPs as the R9 280, but has a narrower memory bus at 256bit (vs 364bit of R9 280X) and less VRAM (2 GB vs 3 GB), although that memory is clocked higher (5.5 GHz vs 5.0 GHz). Looking at the specifications you may be wondering what what is the point? Well unlike the R9 280 which is built on AMDs Tahiti silicon, the R9 285 is built on the brand new Tonga silicon. While it is still based on the same 28 nm process Tonga is said to be more efficient and also adds many of the features that we saw on the Hawaii silicon like XDMA CrossFire (no more CrossFire connectors), TrueAudio DSP, and the ability to connect 4 displays using all output connectors on the card. Today we are taking a look at Sapphires Radeon R9 285 Dual-X OC version of the card. It will feature a slight overclock on the core clock (965 MHz vs 918 MHz) and the memory (1400 MHz vs 1375 MHz). It will also have Sapphires Dual-X cooling solution which seems to be extremely quiet. Lets jump in and see what this card can do."
