HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe SSDs in RAID 0 Hitting 2.8GBs @ Legit Reviews
     Sat, Apr 25 2015 | 10:16A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last month we looked at the performance of the HyperX Predator M.2 PCIe G2 x4 Solid-State Drive and found that was one of the fastest M.2 SSDs that you can purchase right now. To be honest the only two M.2 PCIe SSDs that enthusiasts should be looking at right now would be the Kingston HyperX Predator and the Samsung SM951. The Samsung SM951 is very tough to purchase since it is an OEM storage drive, so that leaves the HyperX Predator as being the fastest consumer M.2 PCIe SSD that is readily available on the market right now. The HyperX Predator PCIe SSD is available in 240 and 480GB capacities and is factory rated as having up to 1400MB/s sequential read and 1000 MB/s sequential write speeds. We were very happy with the performance we got from this drive, but we were curious what performance would look like if we put two HyperX Predator 480GB PCIe SSDs together to create a logical RAID0 array.  Read on to find out how fast we can get them!"

Moto 360 Review: Android Wear-Powered Time Piece
     Sat, Apr 25 2015 | 9:01A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Not long ago, the battle for consumer dollars occurred on a field littered with ultralight notebooks. A few years later, that transitioned to smartphones and tablets. Today, the next major tussle is occurring on one’s wrist, in the red-hot "wearables" market in general. Motorola’s Moto 360 made waves by being the first major smartwatch to actually look like a watch - a real timepiece, not just a gadget. Most of its primary rivals are more akin to something Dick Tracy would wear, but Moto zigged when everyone else zagged. Instead of selling a computer with a band, the 360 is a timepiece that just so happens to run Android Wear.

Gigabyte X99-SOC Champion @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Apr 24 2015 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So what is now years ago Adam and I were at a press event for Gigabyte at CES. At that event I spent some time playing against a pro gamer and we also had the chance to see them introduce their new games series of motherboards. At the end of that speech they slipped in a quick sneak peak of a new line of overclocking motherboards with an orange theme that they called OC Orange. Now I think everyone knows just how much I love orange and OC orange to me is LanOC orange, a color that we have used on the website from nearly the start. At that time Adam wrote that he imagined that I wouldn’t be able to sleep until I got my hands on one of the boards. Well it has been a long few years, but today is finally the day. Gigabyte sent over their new X99-SOC Champion flagship overclocking board and today I’m going to dig into it and see what it is all about. Oddly enough now that I can sleep, I want nothing more than to stay up and see what sets the board apart from the competition.

Gigabyte Z97X-SLI Motherboard Review @ OCIA.net
     Fri, Apr 24 2015 | 10:16A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?The Gigabyte Z97X-SLI is an SLI-capable motherboard priced very attractively for budget gamers. Due to licensing models with Nvidia, not all chipsets and boards are available to support SLI. Additionally, the board will support CrossFire natively as all Z97 boards do. This model also features high-end ALC1150 115dB SNR audio, a high quality headphone amplifier and a dedicated audio hardware zone to protect from interference. Intel Gigabit LAN, all solid caps and a new heatsink design round out the feature list.?"

Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X 12 GB (SLI)
     Fri, Apr 24 2015 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are considering a new Ultra HD 4K monitor then it is likely you will need a new system update to drive those 8,294,400 pixels. Right now the cost of 4k capable graphics cards is prohibitive for all but the wealthiest of gamers. When we reviewed the Titan X last month we noticed performance could still drop under 60 frames per second when dealing with the most demanding engines. We slot another card into our test bed – we answer the question ‘Are two Titan X’s enough to drive 60fps+ at 4K?’
