Crucial M500 960GB SSD - BCCHardware
     Sat, Feb 22 2014 | 9:48A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve been reviewing products long enough that I`m not easy to impress anymore. That being said, there is little to be disappointed with when it comes to the Crucial M500 960GB SSD. It lives up to and exceeds the performance claims and even though the larger block size may make reading and writing smaller files a bit slower than some of the competition, it still delivers excellent performance across the board."

ASUS GTX 750 OC 1 GB @ techPowerUp
     Sat, Feb 22 2014 | 9:07A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today NVIDIA also launched the GeForce GTX 750, which is similar to the GTX 750 Ti, just with fewer shaders and lower clocks. The ASUS GTX 750 OC is overclocked out of the box to provide some extra performance, while still being power efficient, cool and quiet."

NVIDIA Tegra K1 - Kepler meets ARM Project Denver Surfaces
     Sat, Feb 22 2014 | 8:31A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a Kepler GPU in Tegra K1 you get all the benefits of Kepler automatically. A feature like hardware tessellation doesnt surprise PC gamers but for mobile users and developers the feature is new and it is unique to NVIDIA. Tessellation allows you to dynamically generate geometry based on a level of detail variable usually set by screen position. This can be a savings of nearly 50x on triangle generation when compared to OpenGL ES2.0 software tessellation and significant performance improvements will be seen in specific scenarios that take advantage of it. NVIDIA showcased a couple of demos running on the Tegra K1 reference platform including a terrain map and NVIDIAs classic Stone Giant demo both were impressive and running well."

TabZoo Tiger Universal Tablet Sleeve Review @ TestFreaks
     Fri, Feb 21 2014 | 4:20P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most tablet cases out there are rather plain and just perform one function to protect your tablet and that`s fine, but sometimes you want something with a bit more style. Today for review I have the TabZoo Tiger Universal Tablet Sleeve which is something that`s marketed to children. It`s a fun and unique tablet case that looks like a tiger obviously. What makes this sleeve special is that it`s also a stand for your tablet, but it`s a special and fun stand as when you open the sleeve you`ll find teeth. It`s hard to describe, you have to see it to understand it, so read on to learn about a tablet sleeve that kids will just love.. "

EpicGear Blade and Hybrid Pad Review @ ocaholic
     Fri, Feb 21 2014 | 12:10P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Blade, EpicGear have a gaming mouse in their portfolio, that sports a rather aggressive price tag, which apparently comes at the cost of a low resolution sensor. In this case, there is an Avageo ADNS-3050 with 2000 DPI, with which the maker of this mouse won`t break any records. Apart from that we were testing this mouse on an EpicGear Hybrid Pad, which we will also have a quick look at on the following pages."

Seagate Desktop HDD 4 TB vs. Western Digital WD Black 4 TB Hard Drive Review @ Hardware Secrets
     Fri, Feb 21 2014 | 9:30A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While SSDs are the best choice in roles that need high speed (mostly boot drives for the home user), many people need large amounts of storage space, and traditional hard drives still give the best value per gigabyte. Four-terabyte drives are the biggest drives available today, and today we will test two of them: the Seagate Desktop HDD 4 TB and the Western Digital WD Black 4 TB."

NVIDIA G-Sync DIY Upgrade Kit Installation and Performance Review
     Fri, Feb 21 2014 | 8:31A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`m extremely impressed with the build quality of the G-Sync installation kit, as well as the product and technology itself. The installation should be possible for any do-it-youselfer, and the included documentation took away all of the uncertainty venturing into unknown waters. My biggest gripe / hope is to see this technology applied to larger, more color-accurate panels. I`d pay good money for a 2560x1600 IPS G-Sync panel, even if the max refresh rate was 100 or even 85 Hz."

Sapphire Radeon R9 Tri-X OC video card @ Hardwareoverclock.com
     Thu, Feb 20 2014 | 9:30A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hardwareoverclock.com has just posted another review. Last week we have taken a look at the Sapphire Radeon R9 Tri-X OC video card. This card has 3 temperature controlled fans, a big heatsink with thick heatpipes. But is that enough for quiet and efficient use? That and more you can find in our review."

AMD Radeon R9 290: Still Not Good For Linux Users
     Thu, Feb 20 2014 | 9:07A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When reviewing the AMD Radeon R9 290 under Linux back in November we found the Catalyst Linux performance to be quite poor for this high-end Hawaii graphics processor compared to the pleasurable performance reports under Windows and a strong showing against NVIDIA`s wares. Even with succeeding updates we still found the R9 290 Linux performance to be poor -- and that`s for the high-performance Catalyst driver over the open-source RadeonSI Gallium3D-based driver. In this article are fresh benchmarks of the high-end NVIDIA GeForce and AMD Radeon graphics cards from Ubuntu Linux using the latest beta graphics drivers."

Noctua NH-U14S Review
     Thu, Feb 20 2014 | 8:31A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At idle (stock and overclocked), the Noctua NH-U14S was able to deliver temperatures consistent with the highest performing air coolers in this comparison field, which contains coolers costing much more. Looking at the stock load results, the NH-U14S does a fine job of removing the thermal load generated by the hot-running Haswell processor and keeps the temps within two degrees of the liquid cooled AIO (All In One) Nepton 280L. When overclocked, it is only three degress higher than the 280L, and still well below the thermal danger zone. And it is close, very close, to the performance of the much larger D14."
