Posted by: STAFF
ROCCAT Isku FX Gaming Keyboard Review @ HardwareHeaven.com Recently ROCCAT updated one of their keyboards, the Isku, branding the new model Isku FX. We liked the original Isku model though we had some small changes which we would have liked to have seen in order to make the keyboard really stand out. So today we`ll take a look at the Isku FX and see what changes have been made and whether ROCCAT have addressed any of the points we raised in our original review of the Isku."

Sapphire HD 7790 1GB Graphics Card @ Bjorn3D
     Fri, Apr 12 2013 | 9:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sapphire is pretty much teh lead partner when it comes to AMD graphics cards. With that it was to no surprise that for this launch the first HD7790 I recieved was from Sapphire. This card is meant to fit into the gap between the 7700 series and the 7800 series much like the new model 7870 based off of the Tahiti LE GPU filled in the space between the 7800 and 7900 series. Now lets see exactly what this card has to offer for the mainstream audience."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Apr 12 2013 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GeForce GTX650Ti and the new BOOST version is aimed squarely at those looking to gain a foothold in the gaming market while still keeping a close eye on cost. The GTX650Ti was criticised for not including GPU BOOST (an automatic overclocking feature) in the original concept which, as the new naming suggests, is now included in the refresh. Also included is and improved memory interface, increasing from 128bit to 192bit. The final enhancement of this card is the option of SLI, a key feature missing from the original design."

With the XE500T1C you don?t need to have a laptop for your desk and a tablet for on the go. The XE500T1C is a tablet with a nice big 11.6? HD LED display for on the go, and when you need to get some serious work done at the comfort of a desk then you can dock it into a comfortable (and locking) keyboard and trackpad dock.

Eagle Tech Arion Portable Bluetooth Speaker Review
     Thu, Apr 11 2013 | 11:56A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Almost a week ago we spoke about the summer period and how it was just around the corner but we were actually a bit off and so while taking a stroll at the beach this morning to clear my head not only did i see many people there as well but most of them weren`t there to take a stroll like me (some obviously did) but actually swim and play volley and rackets while listening to music. To my surprise however most people used just the speakers from their smartphones to do that while only a couple did actually use wired portable speakers and not wireless ones. Things got even worse when i realized that i knew one of the people there so when i asked why he was using his iPhone to play to music without an extra speaker he wasn`t actually aware about the existence of Bluetooth portable speakers. Now i don`t know if this has to do with the job description people have (he happens to be a doctor) but portable Bluetooth speakers have been around for many years so that`s not an answer i would expect from anyone. Anyways that`s also a reason as to why we will be releasing our portable Bluetooth speaker related reviews a bit faster than we had initially planned and so today we present the latest arion portable bluetooth speaker by Eagle Tech."

ASUS Radeon HD 7790 DirectCU II OC Review @ Ocaholic
     Thu, Apr 11 2013 | 10:49A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Like many other manufacturers ASUS released its very own version of the HD 7790 using a reference design PCB and a custom cooler. This last one is of course the now well known DirectCU II v2.0. Furthermore the card is shipped with a factory overclocking. The GPU runs at 1`075 MHz and the memory is clocked at 1`600 MHz, which are basically the same clocks as other overclocked cards on the market. So far we are not impressed, let`s take a closer look anyway!"

Corsair CX430M Modular Power Supply Review - What $25 Can Buy @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Apr 11 2013 | 10:49A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quality wise, the Corsair CX430M is much better than most people would expect from a power supply which now ships for $24.99 after rebate and a $10 off coupon. We cannot claim that it has been built like a tank; we have certainly seen better but certainly not in a $25 product. Still, Corsair cooperated with a highly respected OEM, CWT, the circuit design is that of a by the book APFC unit without the companies cutting corners on filtering and or safety and, finally, the choice of components was excellent for a product of such a class..."

Kingston HyperX 10th Anniversary 2400MHz 16GB
     Thu, Apr 11 2013 | 10:49A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingston as a whole has been around a long time, but they created the HyperX brand when they realized there were people that wanted to push the limits of their system memory in order to increase performance. That was a long 10 years ago and the kit we have today is a special celebratory kit showing that 10 years has brought the HyperX line a long way. Lets see what ten years has done and what improvement Kingston can offer from this experience."
