XFX R7 250E Review
     Mon, Oct 20 2014 | 1:34A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you look purely at the gaming performance numbers, it`s hard to really think of this card as a gaming performance card with the eye candy turned up. If you are buying this card to play the latest FPS games maxed out at 60 FPS, you will be disappointed. However, when you go to play in the wheel house it fits in, you can get performance up and over the commonly recognized 30 FPS threshold for playable performance at 1920x1080, or even higher at 1680x1050. When you get down to its DNA, this card has its roots in the 2012 release of AMD`s Cape Verde Pro GCN architecture and is comparable to the HD 7750 seen at that time. Where you can really beef up performance is by connecting the XFX R7 250E into an AMD APU system and running a hybrid CrossFire configuration, which would drive performance up when needed and spools down the power consumption when you do not need the 3D GPU horsepower. In that respect, the XFX R7 250E has a lot to offer for a minimal financial impact."

Nvidia GTX 980 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Oct 19 2014 | 4:22P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia may have officially launched Maxwell with the GTX 750 Ti launch back in February, but I think we can all agree that things dont get really serious until they refresh their flagship card with the new architecture. Well the wait is over, Nvidia is taking the cover off of their new cards as you read this at their Game24 event. The new card is the GTX 980, this may come as a surprise seeing that the last generation of cards was the 700 series. Nvidia needed to sync their mobile and desktop GPUs, skipping 800 and jumping to the 900 series was the way to go about doing this."

Some thoughts on the performance of SSD RAID 0 arrays @ Hardware Secrets
     Sun, Oct 19 2014 | 11:12A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the price of the SSDs dropping, you probably already thought about installing two SSD units on your computer and configuring them as a RAID 0 array, which, at least in theory, increases the performance of the SSD. But what is the real-world performance gain of such configuration? Does the stripe size affect performance? If so, what is the best number to use? These some of the questions we will try to answer in this article."
