ASUS Z87-A Review @ ocaholic
     Sun, Dec 22 2013 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Z87-A, ASUS has a highly competitive priced motherboard in its portfolio, that supports Intels latest socket LGA1150 - Haswell - processors. For well under 100 Euro you get a solid motherboard, that features anything you might need to setup a well equipped office or midrange PC. For us this is reason enough to be curious how this board is going to score in our review."

ECS L337 GANK Domination Z87H3-AX Golden
     Sun, Dec 22 2013 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Three out of four of the cons could be overlooked if this motherboard had a proper BIOS update that fixes it. The market ECS has targeted is very small, so potential bug reports are probably low; ECS may not even know a problem exists. Hopefully the BIOS is the only issue causing the boot failures and not some hardware problem. If the BIOS wasn't buggy and it booted fine, then the price could be more justified since it is a high-end design. Fixing the BIOS would essentially negate three of the cons, and simply updating the eOC software with more options would remove it from the Cons list too.”

ASUS Radeon R9 290X DirectCU II Graphics Card Review
     Sun, Dec 22 2013 | 8:59A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS R9 290X DirectCU II is one of the best graphics cards I have ever tested in the PC Perspective labs. It takes a powerful GPU that was first released with a lot of concerns and irons them all out. This card runs at consistent clock speeds. It keeps the GPU much cooler (in the Performance setting). It also doesn`t have the sound profile of a Dyson. (I kid, I kid.) It looks great, overclocks well and ASUS is only asking $20 more than the current MSRP. You can`t really demand much more from an enthusiast class GPU today!"

Genius ECO-u821 8000mAh Power Bank - BCCHardware
     Sat, Dec 21 2013 | 4:37P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are quite a few different portable power solutions on the market today, and some of them are super bulky and others are very slim - but don`t offer a lot of additional power. The Genius ECO-u821 tries to be the perfect middle ground with a nice slim size, not too large of a footprint and enough power to charge your devices a few times."

Apple iPad mini Retina Review
     Sat, Dec 21 2013 | 4:03P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Retina display in the 2nd-gen iPad mini, Apple has increased the price on the base 16 GB Wi-Fi model from $329 to $399, making it one of the most expensive tablets of its size. However, past iPads have been of exceptional quality, so will this be the same for the iPad mini? Does the Retina display and faster processor make a worthy upgrade for first-gen owners?

Posted by: STAFF
Zotac is competing with Inno3D for the world's fastest video card. Like the Inno3D card (reviewed here), the GeForce GTX 780 Ti AMP! Edition is clocked at very high frequencies, 1006 MHz for the GPU and 1800 MHz for the memory. Impressive numbers indeed!

November and December are great months for replacing a PC. Not only have all the big hardware launches for the year taken place, the big winter game releases have all occurred too. One company looking to meet our needs for the latest and greatest system is UK Gaming Computers and today we have their Minos system on our test bench.
