Radeon HD 7790 review
     Sun, Apr 07 2013 | 9:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,Today we review the AMD Radeon HD 7790, the the Sapphire Dual-X OC model specifically. The new graphics card is intended to boost a little more performance into entry-level gaming. Despite the earlier rumors of 768 shader processors, the GPU actually has 896 stream processors. With 6.0 Gbps 1 GB of GDDR5 graphics memory running over a 128-bit GDDR5 memory bus the card will bring the overall game performance close to the Radeon HD 7850 and beyond the competing GeForce GTX 650 Ti."

News: Modern shooters and the atrophy of fun
     Sun, Apr 07 2013 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since the days of Doom and Quake, we`ve seen shooters take quantum leaps in graphics, writing, voice acting, and just about everything elseexcept for gameplay. Somehow, gameplay hasn`t evolved. It hasn`t gotten more fun or more engaging or more interesting. Instead, it`s atrophied into a bland rut, to the point where big-budget shooters feel just like old light-gun arcade games."

Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSD Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Apr 07 2013 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Samsung 256GB 840 pro SSD is one of the newest storage devices in the Samsung lineup. With this revision Samsung has included their triple-core MDX controller into the 840 line. The three cores allow the 840 and 840 pro drives to execute multiple instructions at a time improving performance under heavy use. Using a SATA 3.0 6GB/sec interface the Samsung 840 Pro is rated for 540MB/sec sequential read, 450MB/sec sequential write speeds, 100,000 IOPS in random read, and 90,000 IOPS in random write speed. All while using a minimal amount of power at an average of only .068 watts during active use and .042 watts in idle power. Samsung also includes their Samsung Smart Data Migration Software in the package to assist in the transition and Samsung Magician 4.x to assist with monitoring and maintaining the health of the drive, along with a 5 year warranty.///"

Synology DiskStation DS213+ NAS Server Review
     Sun, Apr 07 2013 | 9:03A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As things are right now consumers are divided into two separate categories, the ones who support that building your own server from old or new computer parts is the way to go if you want power and the ones who`d rather purchase an standalone NAS server and be done without having to go the extra mile. Personally i think that each solution has both pros and cons with NAS servers getting slightly ahead not only because they are ready to use right from the box with all the applications anyone could wish for pre-installed but also due to their small size and very low power consumption. Of course for people who also want to use the server for games it goes without saying that a normal PC/HTPC is suited for the task. Now for the past 12 months we`ve covered quite a few NAS server solutions by both QNAP and Thecus but today we will be covering an NAS server from Synology a name we haven`t seen in a while and since we have managed to secure a brand new DiskStation DS213+ for our giveaway it only makes sense for us to show all of you what will end up in the hands of our lucky winner."

[Tech ARP] ActiveX Filtering In Internet Explorer 9 and 10 Kills Flash Player
     Sun, Apr 07 2013 | 9:03A | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I recently upgraded to Internet Explorer 10 and promptly discovered something odd - Flash Player seemed to be broken. Whenever I tried to access a Flash application or video, it would tell me that an Adobe Flash Player upgrade was required. Take a look at these examples... At first, I thought that perhaps the new Internet Explorer 10 required a newer Flash Player, so I downloaded and installed Flash Player - nothing happened. I restarted Internet Explorer 10, and tried again - it still asked me to upgrade Flash Player!"

Posted by: STAFF
It`s getting to that time when the good intentions of the new year resolutions are becoming more of a distant memory than a daily driver. Many people start the year with the resolve to get in shape, lose weight and exercise more, but by the time April rolls around 80% of those gym memberships will be unused. To try and help keep that motivation going, we`re starting a small series of reviews looking at fitness and health gadgets, diving in ("

First Impressions of Trion Worlds Defiance @ Techgage

Posted by: STAFF
I`m not a sci-fi guy, and I certainly don`t need another MMO to play so whats the deal with me taking Trions just-released Defiance for a spin? Because I was sent a copy, and sometimes thats all the reason I need. Plus, I do like the premise of the game, and figured that maybe just maybe, Id be drawn in. After about five hours of play, I can definitely feel a bit of a pull."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
