 [LATEST]  Toshiba OCZ RD400 M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD Review
     Tue, May 24 2016 | 5:09P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Toshiba XG3 family of client NVMe M.2 PCIe SSDs were quietly launched back in August 2015. The Toshiba XG3 1TB drive just happened to be the highest capacity M.2 2280 drive available on the market and was optimized for high performance PCs. The drive has been found to be pretty damn fast and many found it capable of rivaling the Samsung SSD 950 Pro series, but good luck finding one to buy as it is OEM market though as notebook makers like MSI have been using it. Today, Toshiba OCZ released the RD400 series that will be widely available on the consumer market and has specifications that will rival the Samsung SSD 950 PRO...

     Tue, May 24 2016 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In preparing to hopefully test the GeForce GTX 1070/1080 "Pascal" graphics cards under Linux in the days ahead, I've been re-testing my collection of available NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards going back to the GeForce 9800GTX up through the Maxwell-based GeForce GTX 980 Ti and GTX TITAN X. Besides looking at the OpenGL performance at 1080p and 4K, I've also been recording the power metrics and performance-per-Watt data."

Oculus Rift virtual reality headset full review
     Tue, May 24 2016 | 9:01A | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After many years of talking, speculating and trialing pre-release hardware, we finally have our hands on the first consumer grade virtual reality headset in the world: the Oculus Rift CV1. Packing a pair of 1,080 x 1,200 pixel OLED displays behind a pair of custom-made fresnel lenses, Oculus hopes to take home the VR crown by opting for a traditional gaming focus over that of its big rival, HTC. The headset itself is ergonomic and lightweight, with a unique strap system and built in headphones. It’s tracked by a standalone USB powered infrared camera and is bundled with a wireless Xbox One control and a small remote.

Open Benchtable Project by OC TV, HWBOT LLC and Streacom
     Tue, May 24 2016 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Open Bench table project is a cooperation between the renown passive enclosure manufacturer Streacom, the enthusiastic streaming media from OverClocking TV and the website that gathers the largest overclocking database worldwide HWBOT.org. The idea is to combine the flexibility of a bench table, yet making it as compact as possible so it can be easily transported and rapidly assembled again on the desired location. Most bench tables lack at least the last two points. Only the Banchetto 101 comes close, needing almost no assembly and being very lightweight for transportation. Yet it is pretty big in size. Hence why the open bench table project might have a few cards upon their sleeves to make it a big success."

Core i7-6700K vs. Core i5-6600K - 2D Performance
     Mon, May 23 2016 | 4:01P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is a variety of customer groups in need of as much processing power as possible. Especially in the field of content creation, which includes editing pictures and videos or even rendering a complex scenery with beautiful effects, performance improvements quickly translate into higher income by the end of the month. With this series of articles we're going to compare two processors. The CPUs tested are being run at stock clocks as well as overclocked and apart from that we will also vary the memory frequency. It is our goal to show which CPU is how much faster or slower than another one.
