NVIDIA Multi-Frame Sampled Anti-Aliasing
     Mon, Dec 22 2014 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA today released GeForce Game Ready Driver 344.75 WHQL drivers and with the driver comes support for Multi-Frame Sampled Anti-Aliasing (MFAA). MFAA is an implementation of Anti-Aliasing (AA) that NVIDIA hopes will replace MSAA in the years to come. MSAA is one of the oldest and most popular forms of AA. MSAA removes jagged edges that increases graphic quality, however it does cause a decrease in system performance. NVIDIA thought that this is something that could be improved and came up with a new solution on the new Maxwell GPU series...

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Android Lollipop Update Hands-On
     Mon, Dec 22 2014 | 9:02A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA gave us early access to the Android Lollipop update and we’ve been poking around on it with our SHIELD Tablet since. Some of the changes are subtle, but others are more significant and definitely give the tablet a different look and feel over the original Android KitKat release. There’s more to Lollipop than just tweaks to the UI, however. Animations have been optimized, there’s a new notification area, new graphics APIs for advanced gaming, Android Runtime (ART) for better responsiveness, and several other improvements that should enhance battery life and security as well.

HyperX Skyn Mouse Pad Review @HiTech Legion
     Sun, Dec 21 2014 | 4:05P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HyperX Skyn Mousepad is 355mmx255mm, which means it will fit on almost any desk, weighing only .04lbs. and being only .254mm thick, and it enhances your surface, instead of getting in your way. The anti-microbial surface prevents dirt and bacteria, while the adhesive backing allows the mousepad to stick to most surfaces with ease, stay in place while in use, and is easily removable. Also provided are additional options of two surfaces to meet your needs, speed and control, and a 2 year warranty."

Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro Review
     Sun, Dec 21 2014 | 4:01P | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro features an aluminium body with an intriguing watchband hinge, an ultra high resolution display, and a bleeding edge Core M processor from Intel that promises decent performance with lower power consumption. At least on paper it ticks all the right boxes. It's also surprisingly thin and light. The 13.3-inch frame is just 14mm thick at its thickest point, and 1.19kg heavy, making it thinner and lighter than the latest MacBook Air.

Asustor AS7004T
     Sun, Dec 21 2014 | 4:00P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Asustor has shown a strong commitment to keeping their software up to date by adding new features and squashing any bugs. The new ADM 2.3 software is excellent and we really appreciated the revamped design. The fact that existing customers using products based on the more affordable 2 and 3 series can also enjoy the new ADM 2.3 software speaks volumes. Overall we have been blown away by what can be achieved with the AS7004T and are therefore giving it our must have award.

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact
     Sun, Dec 21 2014 | 9:02A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Sure, there are some smaller smartphones out there, but you end up sacrificing a lot more than just screen size when you opt for these mid-tier devices. You get slower processors, less memory and worse cameras. Sony knows your pain and that’s where the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is meant to slot into the marketplace."

The Crew Review
     Sat, Dec 20 2014 | 7:26P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Should we buckle up and go for a ride in *The Crew*, or let this one drive by? Personally I did enjoy the game, so yes, I would recommend playing it. I am not sure if it is quite worth its full retail price though. It is a fun game and if you have an itch for a racing game, but not necessarily one limited to racetracks, this is a game to consider. The graphics are not the best, but considering how much there is to the game world, and the importance of strong, solid performance, this is forgivable. The story is nothing much to talk about as all it does is connect the various campaign missions, and nothing more. The gameplay has some issues, but is largely solid and fun. Those issues can also be avoided fairly comfortably."
