BIOSTAR NM70I-1037U Motherboard Review
     Fri, Nov 22 2013 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The BIOSTAR NM70I-1037U board features an improved CPU, Ivy Bridge Celeron 1037, which is powerful enough to perform many tasks. In order to boost the 3D capabilities even further, we can install a dedicated video card into the available PCI-Express x16 port so we would be even able to game with low to mainstream graphics levels.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 GHz Edition
     Fri, Nov 22 2013 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While this isn’t a significant difference, where the Gigabyte GTX 780 GHz Edition does have a real advantage is in its dual-slot design. Both the GTX 780 Phantom GLH and GTX 780 Super JetStream feature triple slot coolers and while they work very well, Gigabyte was able to deliver similar results with their more compact WindForce X3 450 watt cooler.

GeForce GTX 780 Ti Market Overview
     Fri, Nov 22 2013 | 9:01A | Video Cards | PermaLink
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.

2560x1600: GeForce GTX 780 Ti vs Radeon R9 290X
     Fri, Nov 22 2013 | 4:53A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It?s no secret that PC gamers who seek realistic graphics prefer their desktop platform over the 1080p-limited console counterparts. Discrete graphics cards, the hardware added onto motherboards built for high performance, support enthusiast video resolutions as large as 2560×1600. More pixels means more power needed to produce them, so I decided to test some of the most recent graphics cards from NVIDIA and AMD on our massive 30? monitor. In this article Benchmark Reviews tests frame rate performance for the AMD Radeon R9 290X and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti at their maximum supported resolution."

OCZ Vector 150 240GB SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Nov 21 2013 | 4:34P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was this time last year that we wrote about our affinity for the then brand new Vector series drive from OCZ which flaunted their homegrown Indilinx Barefoot 3 M00 controller. We had high praise not only for the performance but also for OCZ?s persistence with their Indilinx acquisition made a year or so prior, finally reaping the rewards with a finished product they could be proud of. The drive was a hit with the reviewer and consumer communities alike and the Vector effectively stole the OCZ performance crown from the once prominent Vertex line. To that end, they`ve unveiled the latest incarnation of the Vector drive named the Vector 150 which I`m sure they hope brings good fortune. Similar to the original Vector drive, it carries the same Barefoot 3 M00 controller but shrinks the MLC NAND die size down from 25nm to 19nm, following the industry trend. A reduction in NAND architecture generally yields less endurance but in comparison to the original Vector drive, the Vector 150 ups the anticipated endurance from a rating of a five year 20GB/day to 50GB/day which is quite an improvement. Read on to see how it performs..."

Cougar PowerX 550 W Power Supply Unit Review
     Thu, Nov 21 2013 | 4:27P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
COUGAR was established in 2007 by a group of PC hardware enthusiasts in Germany, who wanted more than the typical PC cases and PSUs that had the same boring looks for umpteen years and internal layouts with endlessly uncreative cosmetic variations and poor quality. So COUGAR was formed to provide gamers more stylish product concepts with the strictest quality requirements. Today, we are going to take a look at the COUGAR PowerX 80 PLUS Bronze power supply. It comes in two models - with power outputs of 700 W and 550 W. We will be looking at the 550 W model specifically. Here are its key features :

Focus on enterprise SSD: Q&A with OCZ CMO Alex Mei
     Thu, Nov 21 2013 | 4:26P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ Technology shifted its corporate focus away from legacy DRAM memory modules in 2011, and has since built on its expertise in high-speed memory to become a leader in the design and manufacturing of solid state drives (SSDs). The year 2012 was another year of transition for the company, which moved to reduce its reliance on the consumer market and increase focus on delivering high performance, client and enterprise solid state storage solutions.

Hence, it has a stylish design that features an blue LED display in the front, and simpler setup and configuration.

Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 3 Gaming Keyboard @ NikKTech
     Thu, Nov 21 2013 | 4:23P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lately whenever i hear people talking about gaming peripherals mechanical keyboards seem to always steal the show and that's somewhat justifiable in a way since they do offer impressive MTBF times and tactile feedback compared to regular membrane keyboards. Of course not all is black and white in the market and so we've seen quite a few membrane keyboards during these past 2 years that share equally good MTBF times and offer a good amount of feedback as well like the S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 and S.T.R.I.K.E. 5 by Mad Catz and the APEX and APEX [RAW] by SteelSeries all of which we have reviewed in the past. Well it seems that Mad Catz is not ready to halt their S.T.R.I.K.E line of gaming keyboards and so just recently they announced the S.T.R.I.K.E. 3 gaming keyboard which is basically a cut-down version of its more expensive brothers featuring just basic functionality without sacrificing key precision and MTBF.
