AMD Radeon R9 280X R9 270X and R7 260X Review
     Sat, Oct 26 2013 | 3:45P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is very little new about the technology behind the R9 and R7 series of graphics cards. But the price drops alone would be a huge story even if AMD wasn`t also rebranding everything to a new naming scheme at the same time. The R9 280X is clearly and without question the best graphics card for $299 and the same is clear for the R9 270X at $199. NVIDIA has no option today that is currently priced to compete with the performance these two cards can now flaunt. AMD is definitely going to get some attention with this release."

Mach Xtreme Technology MX-ES Review @ Vortez
     Sat, Oct 26 2013 | 11:45A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
By choosing SLC NAND Mach Xtreme can reach far higher write speeds with fewer controller channels than comparable products with a similar capacity, as well as boast better durability. The trade-off is one of cost, although by keeping the price well under 50 Mach Xtreme are keeping the MX-ES competitive within the wider drive ecosystem. Depending on your workload, the cost may very well be worth it."

     Sat, Oct 26 2013 | 11:20A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For todays review we will be looking at the x-doria Dash Folio which as the name implies is a folio style case for the iPad mini.

Fractal Define XL R2 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Oct 26 2013 | 11:08A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year we went hands-on with the R4 from Fractal, a mid tower solution to the Define product line. We were quite pleased with the humble case, the simple Fractal facade silently housing a myriad of features. Our one complaint was the weight of the chassis, to which Fractal responded by sending us the R4s big brother full tower, the XL R2. I`ll be installing a full ATX building and, against better judgement, showing it off at our upcoming LAN party.Take a look with us, we could use an extra hand lifting."

Kingston Navi Limited Edition 240GB SSD review: gaming SSD
     Sat, Oct 26 2013 | 9:03A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We've mentioned this a few times recently, but you really can't deny the fact that the controller used for the Kingston HyperX Navi Limited Edition is becoming obsolete. The LSI SandForce SF-2281 controller came out in 2011 and was state of the art, but today there are many better options. There is a good reason for why it's still a popular controller, and that's because it's the only turn-key solution complete with software.

Video Perspective: ORIGIN PC Millennium Custom Gaming Rig - Ivy Bridge-E GTX 780 SLI
     Sat, Oct 26 2013 | 2:05A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While I was preparing for the release of Intel`s Core i7 Ivy Bridge-E processors last month ORIGIN PC approached me about a system review based on the new platform. Of course I rarely pass up the opportunity to spend some time with unreasonably fast PC hardware so I told them to send something over that would impress me."
