NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Nov 18 2013 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There were questions left unanswered with the TITAN, namely the mystery surrounding the missing SMX. The GTX TITAN had 14 out of a possible 15, much the same as the pro grade Tesla K20 the TITAN is based upon. Whether this was due to yield issues or NVIDIA rationing power we cannot say but the GK110 has to date always shipped with one SMX disabled. This has changed with the GTX 780 Ti because it serves up a full complement of SMX making the GTX 780 Ti a `full fat` GK110."

Powercolor R9 290X OC Review
     Mon, Nov 18 2013 | 6:59A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooling the card down is a large cooling solution that at times seems less than adequate, especially when running in Quiet mode. Temperatures quickly skyrocket to 94 C on this card before clock speeds start dropping. This is particularly troubling when you run this card in a sealed case. You get some thermal dump into the case, which hopefully is well ventilated with more than just a pair of low CFM fans, or your gaming bliss could be short lived. While AMD states 95 C is OK, I found out otherwise as this card would decide enough was enough and shut down at random times in games, which is a concern that needs to be addressed. Usually after the thermal limits had been reached and had been running under load for any time with a fan speed of less than 55%. Again not a PowerColor problem, but something I am wondering is indicative of the higher operating temperatures on the reference design. I hope that the non-reference designs from AMD`s board partners remedy the cooling concerns to maintain the thermal headroom needed for optimum performance, because currently it`s quite clear that NVIDIA cards run cooler and quieter than this current flagship from AMD."

Today, AMD pulls back the curtain on the Radeon R9 270, a new graphics card that extends the R9 family down to $179. This is the most affordable member of the R9 series, and it`s also the least power-hungry."

Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Ti @ Bjorn3D
     Sun, Nov 17 2013 | 4:34P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia launched the 700 series and really took the market by storm with the capability to offer exceptional power savings and super strong performance per watt, along with cool running cards which makes for a great gaming package. However nothing ever is safe for very long and with that AMD showed off their new R series of cards to compete. Unfortunately for AMD, almost all of the models in the R series were actually existing chips with a new name. The exception was the flagship product?the R9-290X. "

Intel Core i7-4770K vs AMD A10-6800K Gaming-Performance @ Ocaholic
     Sun, Nov 17 2013 | 11:21A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Maybe some of you are curious to see how close an AMD A10-6800K APU can come to an Intel Core i7-4770K. Obviously this article should not be seen as some kind of buying advice it`s more about illustrating that the CPU isn`t the most important piece of hardware when it comes to gaming performance. And that`s exactly what you will notice when checking out all the results we gathered."

Id America TouchTone Portable Bluetooth Speaker Review @ TestFreaks
     Sun, Nov 17 2013 | 10:58A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Up for review today I have the TouchTone Bluetooth speaker from Id America which features touch sensitive controls, hence the word touch in the name. The TouchTone is wireless over Bluetooth but it also has a line-in that uses a standard audio connector so you can even use it with non Bluetooth devices. The TouchTone can put out of total of four watts from the two speakers and that might not sound like much, but it is, this thing can get very loud but yet theres very minimal distortion. Anyway, read on to learn more"

Compro TN600W Plug-n-Play PTZ Cloud Network Camera Review @ TestFreaks
     Sun, Nov 17 2013 | 10:17A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today I have a very large review for you of a new IP camera from Compro Technology called the TN600W. This camera is technically called the TN600W Plug-n-Play Cloud Network Camera and its all of those things and more really. The TN600W is something that anyone looking for a monitoring solution for their home or business can appreciate as it has features that I think one would want in a camera of this type. The biggest and most exciting feature I think is panning and tilting, the TN600W can move all around and let you see wherever you want to in the room from your computer or even even your mobile device. The camera also features two-way audio communications so you could carry on a conversation with someone right through the camera. The TN600W also features twelve integrated infrared LEDs that can really light up a room, making it go from day to night and letting you see everything thats going on even in the dark. This camera is very simple to setup, yes it has a lot of advanced features but if you primarily want mobile viewing it couldnt be simpler as you just need to plug it in, install an app and scan the QR code on the camera and thats it, youre up and running with the ability to via and communicate right from your mobile device. We live in a very mobile world and lets face it we live in world where surveillance cameras are the norm everywhere so why shouldnt they be in your home as well. The TN600W from Compro has multiple uses from just monitoring your children or pets to actually protecting your home or even your business. So read on "

Posted by: STAFF
The home network is one of the most consistently neglected things in modern computing, usually relegated to the if it aint broke, dont fix it category even by most enthusiasts. However, it is also a market with constantly evolving technologies just like everything else and in the current landscape of always online games and every phone and gadget starving for wireless data why wouldnt you want a network you can rely on? Earlier we reviewed My Net AC1300 from Western Digital and today we are back to put the ASUS RT-AC56U through the same paces. Is wireless AC technology all its cracked up to be?

EVGA SuperNOVA P2 1000 W @ techPowerUp

EVGA shook the PSU market with top-performing G2 units and is doing it again with the SuperNOVA P2 1000 W model released recently. Many features in common with the G2s, it uses the same Super Flower platform, but comes with extras, like Platinum efficiency and a selectable semi-passive operation."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Review
     Sun, Nov 17 2013 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In my testing, a boost clock speed of 1291MHz was reached with a memory speed of 1940MHz for a stunning improvement in 3DMark scoring. The baseline clock speeds for the GTX 780 Ti are 875MHz on the core with a typical GPU Boost 2.0 frequency of around 928MHz over a wide array of games. During my testing, I never saw speeds drop below the 928MHz threshold. A much different strategy than what we recently saw with the R9 290X, which when run in Quiet Mode would shed clock speed as fast as donuts disappearing at the morning roll call at your local police department. No such troubles here. Both manufacturers use dynamic clock speeds, but it`s how well it`s implemented that makes the difference once the cards heat up during gaming. This is where we see another point of difference. The vapor chamber cooling solution used by NVIDIA for its GTX 700 Series Kepler cores has been rock solid in terms of cooling efficiency and the low noise profile it uses thanks to the improved fan algorithms implemented over successive launches."

News: AMD reveals 2014 APU roadmap for tablets convertibles
     Sun, Nov 17 2013 | 4:14A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We already know that AMD`s next-gen Kaveri APU is coming to mobile systems. However, the chip will only fit into power envelopes ranging from 15W to 35W. For the tighter TDPs suited to tablets and convertibles, AMD has a couple of other, lower-power chips plannedand it announced them today at its APU13 event in San Jose. These low-power APUs are called Beema and Mullins, and they`re successors to today`s Kabini and Temash offerings. AMD says they deliver twice the performance per watt of their predecessors and are scheduled for release in the first half of 2014."
