ROCCAT Raivo High-Velocity Gaming Mousepad - BCCHardware
     Sat, Dec 14 2013 | 11:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Throughout the testing phase of Roccat`s Raivo we find out that it isn`t only aesthetics that this pad has going for it; it is very good at what it`s designed to do. The surface lets you glide over it with your mouse and it offers little-to-no resistance. It`s taken a line out of the Borg collective Resistance is futile and marries that with good durability."

ASUS ROG RAIDR Express 240GB PCIe SSD Review
     Sat, Dec 14 2013 | 10:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PCI Express is the future of performance storage, but native PCIe SSDs are rare. Are these RAID controlled SATA products worthy of their high price?"

The Witcher 5-Years Later Review
     Fri, Dec 13 2013 | 4:37P | Gossip | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It`s interesting to look back at a game that started a franchise still loved today. You know it has earned respect, but you also know that time changes how we think of things. Years ago and years from now, a good, quality game is still a good, quality game. Despite its age, The Witcher represents a very solid and enjoyable experience that I would easily recommend to anyone interested in the franchise or in the role-playing game genre. Sure the graphics are not mind-blowing now, but forgive it its wrinkles and enjoy what it offers you. Besides, it can be nice to play a game that does not cause every fan in your computer to spin up to full speed."

Gigabyte Radeon R9-290X review
     Fri, Dec 13 2013 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We have one more reference review for you, this is the Gigabyte Radeon R9-290X. As stated it is a reference design of the original Radeon R9-290X. These cards are little beasts. As such this in-depth review will cover the Volcanic Islands GPU architecture, Hawaii for the 290 series, we`ll benchmark these cards with FCAT Frametimes, Ultra High Definition and of course, we`ll check out game performance with the latest games next to power consumption and heat levels as well."

Western Digital Black2 Dual Drive Full Review - 120GB SSD + 1TB HDD in a single 2.5 package
     Fri, Dec 13 2013 | 2:53P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Western Digital has certainly broken the mold here. No longer are you stuck with either an SSD or HDD. You`re not stuck with a cached HDD, either. Now you can have a full blown SSD with 1TB of HDD storage, all in one package that fits into a single laptop HDD bay! The new JMicron controller may not be the best performer out there, but it is definitely competitive where it matters. The linking of SSD and HDD into a single logical device may be confusing at first, but it makes sense once you wrap your head around the concept."

Open-Source NVIDIA Driver Works On Some GeForce 700 GPUs Fails On Others
     Fri, Dec 13 2013 | 11:01A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With being in the process of checking out several new NVIDIA GeForce 700 GPUs on Linux, now that I have out of the way the GeForce GTX 760 / 770 / 780 Ti / TITAN Linux benchmarks and Windows vs. Linux NVIDIA benchmarks, I decided to see how these four Kepler graphics cards are working with Nouveau, the open-source NVIDIA graphics driver that`s written through clean-room reverse-engineering. Up until recently Nouveau has just been an open-source community project, except now NVIDIA is beginning to support Nouveau and open-source, so let`s see how it runs on this latest high-end graphics hardware."

ASUS A88X-PRO Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Dec 13 2013 | 10:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In lieu of the `Kaveri` APUs, ASUS release a full featured ATX motherboard based on the A88X chipset dressed up in their current garb of golden heatsinks on a darkened background. As ever with ASUS, who are keen to include as many exclusive features as they can cram in, we find the new Dual intelligent processors 4 along with the new AI Suite 3 that aims to give users maximum control over their system performance and power efficiency."

CM Storm Reaper Review
     Fri, Dec 13 2013 | 9:36A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
CM Storm Reaper belongs to the new aluminum series and it is a gaming mouse, which Cooler Master decided to equip with the latest and greates Avago ADNS-9800 sensor. Like other products in the same series, the Reaper has an aluminum plate, which is customizable and therefore ideal for gamers and modders alike. So far we`re really curious if the gaming mouse is any good or not."

NVIDIA G-Sync Explored and Explained
     Thu, Dec 12 2013 | 11:28A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review Nvidia GSYNC. G-Sync eliminates the problems that come with VSYNC both on and off. Meaning no more Sync stuttering and that dreaded demon of them all, Screen tearing. G-Sync basically is a technology made compatible with a G-Sync module and software. And that symbiosis honestly is a touch of magic."

NZXT Source 530 Case Review
     Thu, Dec 12 2013 | 11:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a good amount of positive things to say, I am going to try and focus on the most important topics. Overall, for a chassis to be successful, it needs to have a large video card and CPU cooler support. NZXT hits the mark and even goes a bit further by including a fan mount on the top hard drive cage to provide extra air to the video card, if installed. Being a sub $100 full tower can cause companies to cut corners or remove features, but NZXT once again goes above the norm and includes a decent fan hub in case you want to use the chassis to its fullest. Lastly, with a solid metal frame and an ability to install up to a 360mm radiator on top, this chassis has a lot going for it."
