Seagate Archive HDD 8TB SATA III HDD Review
     Mon, May 25 2015 | 7:50P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
How many of you recall the days when even 340MB of storage space was the highest one could find and consumers had lots of brands they could choose a drive from (well at least in most places on the planet) including Seagate, WD, IBM, Quantum and Maxtor? Well since then (over 15 years ago) things have changed a lot so aside the fact that Seagate and WD are the two largest players right now (for example Quantum was bought by Maxtor which in turn was bought by Seagate) storage capacities have skyrocketed up to a crazy 10TB (10TB=10000000MB). Of course technology never stops progressing so we all knew that this day would eventually come although it did arrive earlier than some expected. Unfortunately as we all know in order to own the latest and highest capacity model you need to spend quite a bit especially if you're looking for a durable HDD with the best possible read/write performance. The good news however is that thanks to Seagate people who place capacity and durability before performance now have a HDD they can turn to and its name is the Archive HDD.

Kingston HyperX FURY Pro Gaming
     Mon, May 25 2015 | 7:35P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingston has been building their HyperX gaming brand over the past couple of years and have really come out with some great gaming-focused products. Of course we know the HyperX line for great memory and SSDs, but they also have gaming headsets and mousepads. Today we will be taking a look at one of the their latest mousepads in the HyperX FURY Pro. This mousepad has a high-quality fabric pad that’s soft yet resistant and heat-treated for a controlled glide. Kingston actually offers this mousepad in four different sizes, they sent us the Large version (HX-MPFP-L) which has official dimensions of 420mm x 500mm. Let’s get to gaming and see how well we like this mousepad!"

AOC Q2778VQE Review
     Mon, May 25 2015 | 7:20P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Q2778VQE is a 27-inch 16:9 monitor with a WQHD (2,560 x 1,440) TN (twisted nematic) display and a refresh time of just 1ms, making it a good choice for gamers. It retails for a reasonable £285, but can be found for slightly less at many online vendors. Although there’s plenty of competition at this mid-range price point, with ultra-wide 21:9 screens, IPS panels and so on, there are fewer low-latency 27-inch displays – making the Q2778VQE a relatively unique prospect for gamers.

Zalman ZM-GM4 Knossos Gaming Mouse Review
     Mon, May 25 2015 | 7:05P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Zalman made their reputation with high-end aluminum cases– who could forget the marvelously insane $1,000+ TNN-500? – and CPU air coolers like their “flower”-designed CNPS7000 series. They don’t make insanely expensive cases any more, and air coolers are arguably irrelevant in the enthusiast market these days, but Zalman’s been branching out into gaming peripherals, and today Benchmark Reviews has their top-end Knossos ZM-GM4 Professional Laser Gaming Mouse to review.

Assassin's Creed Rogue: tested with 23 GPUs
     Mon, May 25 2015 | 6:28P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Only after cranking up the resolution to Ultra HD do we see substantial performance differences. Only the Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X and the dual-GPU AMD Radeon R9 295X2 are capable of reaching the 60 fps cap when using the highest settings. When looking at the frame times, we see that Nvidia users need at least a GTX 780 or 970 to obtain a 99th percentile value of below 30 ms (and with it, a smooth gaming experience). AMD users need at least a Radeon R9 280X, although the 280 and 285 aren't too far above the threshold.

Besides the standard boot sector or partition table protection, this BIOS feature can offer more comprehensive anti-virus protection via built-in rule-based anti-virus codes like ChipAway. When enabled, the BIOS will protect the boot sector and partition table by..."

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.
