Crucial MX300 SSD Review (750GB)
     Mon, Jun 27 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For what seemed like an eternity Samsung has been the leader in manufacturing 3D NAND. Starting with the release of the Samsung 850 Pro two years ago, they have paved the way for innovation. 3D NAND brings greater capacity, power efficiency, and lower cost to the consumers. After first announcing their 32-Layer 3D NAND last year in March, we have been patiently awaiting Micron and Intel to finally step into the game to combat Samsung in this regard. Luckily for us, we don't need to wait any longer. Today, Crucial releases the Limited Edition MX300, a 750GB, 2.5" 7mm form factor SSD powered by Micron's latest 3D TLC NAND! We can finally get hand's on experience with the collaborative result of Micron's and Intel's labor to see how it compares to the competition. Read on to learn more as we put the Limited Edition Crucial MX300 to the test.

Samsung has released the 500 GB version of the 750 EVO SSD. The 750 series should be a notch more price-competitive yet offers enthusiast class SATA3 performance. Armed with truckloads of performance and that attractive pricing, Samsung will once again set the tone!

Gigabyte 990FX Gaming Motherboard Review
     Sun, Jun 26 2016 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As a hardware reviewer it is difficult to get excited over old hardware and while my enthusiast roots cringe whenever anyone suggests an AMD build even though I know the CPU can play “some” of the latest titles and for the most part still very affordable.

Even though it's currently out of stock pretty much everywhere, we expect availability to improve shortly.

Total War: Warhammer DirectX 12 Graphics Performance Analysis
     Sun, Jun 26 2016 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Total War franchise has entertained fans of the strategy genre who have a penchant for barbaric historical periods since the dawn of PC gaming. Furthermore, these bloody conflicts brought history to life and gave users an insight into the harsh reality of classical warfare. Not only that, the ability to plan strategic onslaughts and react to the enemy’s movements is incredibly satisfying. Of course, Total War titles are set on a huge scale featuring a massive quantity of ground units which requires a thoughtful approach. The latest entry is quite unusual and based on the Warhammer fantasy series. Throughout the game, you can select between four playable factions: the Dwarfs, the Empire of Man, the Greenskins and the Vampire counts. According to Metacritic, the game has received a relatively positive response from both professional critics and PC users.

Silicon Power S55 TLC 120GB and 240GB SSD Review
     Sat, Jun 25 2016 | 12:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The S55 TLC series of SSDs from Silicon Power are offering quite a bit of storage space at acceptable performance levels unless the buffer gets filled; if we are used to transferring frequently large batches of files to the drive, the speed will decrease to a minimum of about 95MB/s (regular HDD performance levels), but we will still benefit from very good access times."

NEC MultiSync EA305WMi Professional Monitor
     Sat, Jun 25 2016 | 12:01P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For many users, one monitor just isn’t enough. Sometimes, two displays won’t cut it either. If your latest project has you searching for multiple, high-end monitors, you’re likely going to be looking at professional workhorses like NEC’s MultiSync EA305WMi. The venerable display maker designed this 30-inch monitor specifically for multi-monitor configurations and added something it calls ControlSync technology, so you can manage multiple displays from a single interface. The MultiSync EA305WMi is a 30-inch (29.8-inch viewable area) monitor with a 2560x1600 resolution in a 16:10 aspect ratio. Although displays with 3840x2160 UHD resolution have been hogging the spotlight recently, 2560x1600 still makes for incredibly detailed images, and you won't have to deal with the scaling issues associated with HiDPI displays and legacy applications in Windows...
