Club3D R9 Nano 4GB HBMv1 Graphics Card Review
     Mon, Nov 23 2015 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
eTeknix has fought hard over the last few months to be able to bring you the Fiji articles that we have, some may have been a little late, but we have managed to get them out to you one way or another. Stock levels of the Fiji core and HBM have been extremely limited, so AMD had to make the tough decision to only allow an severely limited number of media samples and plumb the rest to the consumer market.

Toshiba Canvio Desk 4TB USB 3.0 Desktop External Hard Drive Review
     Sun, Nov 22 2015 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Whether it's CPUs, graphics cards, hard disk drives, solid state drives, mainboards, peripherals, consoles, media players, LCD screens and pretty much everything in the electronics industry there's one constant that applies to all regardless. When the newest models get released prices of the previous generation ones (and the ones before) take a serious hit. Because of that although currently we even have 8TB external 3.5" Desktop HDDs in the market (even higher capacity models in RAID) what are really popular amongst most consumers are the previous generation 4/5TB models which have become very affordable after having their prices cut more than just once. Toshiba released their latest Canvio Desk line of Desktop USB 3.0 hard drives a while back and again although the top of the line model features 6TB of available capacity today we're taking a look at the 4TB one.

BIOS Option Of The Week - Rx6C OverWrite.
     Sun, Nov 22 2015 | 4:02P | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Rx6C register is 8-bits wide and therefore can handle up to eight SDRAM settings. Of course, the number and nature of the SDRAM settings controlled by this register vary from chipset to chipset. This BIOS feature only functions as a switch that determines if the BIOS is allowed to overwrite the default settings of the SDRAM Control register. A separate BIOS feature called OverWrite Rx6C is used to..."

Alienware Steam Machine Review
     Sun, Nov 22 2015 | 4:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The term Steam Machine is something we’ve been hearing for a while now, but the actual real Steam Machines are only coming out now. A Steam Machine is meant to bridge the gap between a console gamer and traditional PC gamer. It brings the Steam experience and Steam’s vast library of games to the living room. Even if you are a traditional PC gamer there are times you just want to sit in front of the TV and play some games. Many people have already done this by building their own HTPC system, but these are bulky and more often than not underpowered. Steam Machines are designed to be smaller than most current-generation consoles, which means you can easily add them to your home theater setup. A true Steam Machine is powered by SteamOS and comes with an official Steam Controller. Today we are looking at Alienware’s Steam Machine (model: ASM100-2980BLK) which is powered by an Intel Core i3 processor, NVIDIA GeForce GTX GPU with 2GB of memory, 8GB of DDR3 memory, and a 1 TB hard drive. Come on this adventurewith us as we see what Alienware’s Steam Machine and the SteamOS is all about."

Phanteks Enthoo Evolve ATX Galaxy Silver Edition Review
     Sun, Nov 22 2015 | 4:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It seems that the minimalist design is starting to become more and more popular these days. There are still a few companies out there that make what we call pre-modded cases (Those are the ones with all the aggressive angles and funky shaped window panels) but, for the most part most of the modern cases are very minimalist. That just …

LiteHawk QUATTRO NEON Quadcopter Review
     Sat, Nov 21 2015 | 4:01P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The word drone has become a popular one worldwide. We live in an exciting generation where innovative technologies such as these are available to us to use. These unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) are just one of the many technologies that we as regular citizens can enjoy. We even have examples of large companies such as Amazon and DHL using these types of aircraft to deliver goods. Today the LiteHawk QUATTRO NEON Quadcopter gets reviewed by ModSynergy!"

     Sat, Nov 21 2015 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Yesterday AMD finally posted power management support for the AMDGPU DRM kernel driver when it comes to supported discrete graphics cards like Tonga and Fiji. I've been testing these PowerPlay Linux patches since yesterday to great success. In this article are results from a Radeon R9 285 and Radeon R9 Fury when testing these kernel patches along with the latest Mesa 11.1-devel Git drivers."

Linksys LCAB03VLNOD 1080p 3MP Outdoor Night Vision Bullet Camera Review
     Sat, Nov 21 2015 | 12:01P | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Where i live we may not have the freedom to have guns at home or carry them around for personal protection but that doesn't mean there aren't many other ways for someone to increase the level of security both at home and at work. One of the easiest ways and also one we've focused on quite a bit over the years is the installation of an IP camera which people can use to live stream everything it sees either onto their computer or their mobile devices via both wired and wireless modes. However there are many aspects one needs to take into account before getting an IP camera aside connectivity such as enclosure quality/endurance, enclosure type (bullet or dome), usage (indoor or outdoor), recording resolution, lens angle, night vision range, microSD/SD card recording, available software features and last but not least warranty period. As part of our review schedule inside 2015 we received the LCAB03VLNOD 1080p 3MP Outdoor Night Vision Bullet Camera by Linksys and today several months later (sorry for that Linksys) we can finally post our review.

MSI X99A SLI Plus Motherboard Review
     Sat, Nov 21 2015 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With Skylake chips still selling through retailers for a significantly greater price than Intel may have intended, the HEDT X99 platform quickly becomes an even more appealing option to power users. The six-core Haswell-E 5820K is faster than Skylake’s flagship 6700K and is available for around £40 less. The next critical item in a similarly-priced Haswell-E vs Skylake build is a cost-effective X99 motherboard. Enter MSI’s X99A SLI Plus.

Everything You Need To Know About The NVIDIA Jetson TX1 Performance
     Fri, Nov 20 2015 | 4:03P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While last week we were able to write about the NVIDIA Jetson TX1 development board, at that time we weren't able to share any benchmarks or hands-on experience with this ARM board powered by NVIDIA's Tegra X1 SoC. The embargo on that has now expired and as such this morning there are a lot of benchmarks to share with you. There are many benchmarks looking at different areas of the Jetson TX1 including power consumption and thermal. For kicks I've also done some comparisons against the Tegra 2 and Tegra 3 as well as other ARM hardware like the now defunct Calxeda ARM server and Raspberry Pi 2."

Asus ROG G20AJ Review
     Fri, Nov 20 2015 | 4:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Asus aims to pull off a neat trick with the Republic Of Gamers G20AJ. They have taken a desktop Core i7 CPU and a desktop GTX 970 graphics card and crammed the two of them into a tiny 12.5-litre chassis that appears to be a similar size as a Sony PlayStation 4.

FSL Xylem Wood Earphones Review @ Technogog
     Fri, Nov 20 2015 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Up for review today I’ve got a pair of earphones from FSL or Future Sound Labs and these are called the Xylem and what makes makes these a bit special is the fact that they’re made of wood. The headphones are inexpensive and they do have an in-line remote control for controlling media and phone calls. For the price they aren’t bad, but they’re not perfect. Read on to learn more… "
