 [LATEST]  Intel Core i7-4960X 3-way SLI Gaming Performance Scaling @ ocaholic
     Thu, Apr 17 2014 | 10:04A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our 3-way SLI gaming performance scaling articles we`re going to investigate 3-way SLI scaling factors with different CPUs and different clock speeds. In eight recent games and two theoretical benchmarks we want to find out what difference 3-way SLI makes, when we run benchmarks with the CPU at stock clocks as well as overclocked to 4.5 GHz. Let`s kick off with an Intel 4960X CPU and three ASUS GTX 780 DirectCU II graphics cards and find out what the differences are going to be like."

 [LATEST]  Humble Bundle: PC and Android 9 Review
     Thu, Apr 17 2014 | 9:55A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I found the two beat-the-average games, Kingdom Rush and Knights of Pen and Paper, to be very enjoyable. Kingdom Rush offers a deep and well-designed tower defense experience on both Android and PC. Knights of Pen and Paper is an even deeper game, but not too intimidating, especially if you are familiar with other turn-based RPGs. Either game, on its own, I would recommend beating the average for, so beating the average for both makes perfect sense."

News: TRs April 2014 Peripheral Staff Picks
     Thu, Apr 17 2014 | 9:12A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we introduced our new System Guide format in February, we cut out peripherals in order to focus more closely on internal PC components. Our plan was to revisit keyboards, mice, displays, and such things in a separate guide, which we would be free to flesh out a little more and update as needed, independently of the already lengthy System Guide. Today, that plan comes to fruition. Welcome to our first Peripheral Staff Picks."

ASRock FM2 A85X-ITX Motherboard Review
     Thu, Apr 17 2014 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"AMD has finally delivered on the new Richland APUs. And yes, they come with complete backwards compatibility. The question is, are any of the motherboards that were designed for the FM2 socket and Trinity still worth using with their latest chip? Or do you need something more? ASRock, a leader in innovative motherboard design, might have had the answer all this time, with the ASRock FM2 A85X-ITX. Maybe big things do come in small packages?"

Radeon R7 265 to become widely available
     Thu, Apr 17 2014 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA’s flagship mainstream part is also still the leader when it comes to performance per dollar in this segment (for at least as long as it takes for AMD’s Radeon R7 265 to become widely available). There has been a few cases that we have noticed where the long standing shortages and price hikes from coin mining have dwindled, which is great news for gamers but may also be bad news for NVIDIA’s GPUs in some areas. Though, even if the R7 265 becomes available, the GTX 750 Ti remains the best card you can buy that doesn’t require a power connection. This puts it in a unique position for power limited upgrades. After our initial review of the reference card, and then an interesting look at how the card can be used to upgrade an older or under powered PC, it is time to take a quick look at a set of three different retail cards that have made their way into the PC Perspective offices.

ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition Motherboard Review
     Thu, Apr 17 2014 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition is the second offering to carry the "Black Edition" moniker and as a result there is much riding on this particular edition as this will be the last hurrah for the X79 platform. The previous edition was the absolute best X58 motherboard money could buy and we expect no less from this Black Edition.

Gigabyte CDRomland OC Workshop
     Wed, Apr 16 2014 | 4:19P | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After a first successful outing of the Hardware.Info Pro OC team, it was time to head to a new location. Bundling forces with Gigabyte, Intel and the CDRomLand store the stage was set for another OC workshop. Since the Hardware.Info team is involved in HWBOT's Pro OC Cup some scores had to be improved to remain within the top 10, a tedious task as overclocking with a curious crowd adds constantly asking questions adds up to the challenge. Time to head over to the lovely city of Breda to the CDRomLand shop.

Acer TA272 HUL All-in-One Review
     Wed, Apr 16 2014 | 4:18P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Veering off the beaten path, Acer decided to see what would happen if they took the traditional AIO formula, threw out the Windows operating system and PC hardware, replacing it instead with high-end smartphone guts powered by Android. They nailed the key component of the system -- the display -- as its AIO is built on top of an existing monitor, the T272 HUL, offering 10-point multi-touch and a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440. But does Android make sense on the desktop?

Are AMD Athlon/Sempron APUs Fast Enough?
     Wed, Apr 16 2014 | 4:18P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Earlier today the latest installment of our extensive Linux testing of AMD's new Athlon AM1 APUs were shared in the form of RadeonSI vs. Gallium3D benchmarks of the Radeon R3 Graphics found with these new entry-level APUs. Not included with that open-source vs. closed-source driver testing was any Source Engine / Steam Linux game testing due to an XCB DRI3 issue, but this article is devoted to looking at the Catalyst performance for the Sempron 2650, Sempron 3850, Athlon 5150, and Athlon 5350 to see whether any of these APUs can make the cut for a budget Steam Machine."

ASUS A88X-Pro AMD Motherboard Review
     Wed, Apr 16 2014 | 4:17P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the new Kaveri APUs out in full force, the Mantle API being used for high-profile games like Battlefield 4, and HSA finally coming into its own, FM2+ motherboards are all over the place. The A88X chipset paired with an FM2+ APU is a solid platform all by itself, but manufacturers have to spice things up in order to sell motherboards. In this article, Benchmark Reviews takes a look at the ASUS A88X-Pro FM2+ Motherboard.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
