Posted by: STAFF
With the arrival of the new and more efficient B1 revision of the 28nm GK110 GPU, some Nvidia add-in-card (AIC) partners, like Gigabyte, have decided to come up with a completely new SKU, while some will simply silently replace the old A1 revision. Gigabyte`s new GTX 780 GHz Edition will not only feature the new GK110-300-B1 chip, but also bring a couple of other enhancements that should make it one of the best and among the fastest GTX 780 graphics cards on the market."

ADATA HV620 2TB External Hard Drive Review @HiTech Legion
     Sat, Nov 23 2013 | 4:53A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink

ROCCAT Kone Pure Optical Review @ Vortez
     Sat, Nov 23 2013 | 4:14A | Optical Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With that in mind, we come to the Kone Pure Optical. It`s a subtly different beast to the Kone Pure, which integrates the 8200dpi Pro-Aim Laser Sensor R3 for scanning the mousing surface. In order to satisfy those with slightly different preferences the Pure Optical utilises a 4000dpi Pro-Optical Sensor R3; in most other aspects the Pure Optical is identical, only changing up the aesthetics slightly and removing a tracking control unit no longer relevant without a laser sensor."

     Fri, Nov 22 2013 | 4:14P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS MARS 760 is a unique, dual-GPU graphics card that delivers the performance you expect. The build quality is very nice, you can overclock the card if you want, but the noise level with two GPUs is of course higher than with one. It's clear that the ASUS engineers did their homework, as it's a very solid card overall.
