Intel Core i7 4790K Devils Canyon CPU Review @ TechwareLabs.com
     Mon, Sep 22 2014 | 4:16P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A little over a year ago, Intel introduced their new line of CPU`s under the Haswell codename. As the successor to the Ivy-Bridge architecture Intel`s new chip design looks to optimize power savings and performance benefits, taking advantage of the 22nm node instead of focusing on overall performance. With the release of the i5-4670K and i7-4770K, enthusiasts seemed to be disappointed over the lack of raw power the CPU`s had to offer, and the small amount of headroom for overclocking. To much concern, it seems as though this is becoming a trend. Over the last few generations, there seems to be less of an increase in overall power and performance with each new release that comes out. Haswell was no exception to the trend, offering only a..."

Zowie FK1 Gaming Mouse Review
     Mon, Sep 22 2014 | 12:01P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I normally look at a review sample and think “hmm, I wonder if it’s going to be any good”, but today is a little different, as I have the new Zowie FK1 gaming mouse at my disposal and Zowie have a reputation for making some of the best gaming mice in the business. With that in mind, I feel like I already know that the FK1 is going to be nothing short of awesome, and that is a dangerous thing for Zowie. If this mouse is anything lower than the high standards the company have already set for themselves, then things could quickly crash and burn towards the end of this review. Fortunately for Zowie, the FK1 is a pretty safe product release as it’s more of a beefed up revision of their already massively popular Zowie FK. The product team at Zowie are always tuned into user feedback and they’ve responded with some minor tweaks to the product. The biggest changes are easily in the size of the mouse, it has been made a little bigger, measuring in at 1mm taller, 4mm longer and around 3mm wider overall. The next upgrade is the sensor, gone is the old Avago 390 sensor which features a 450 / 1150 / 2300 DPI toggle, now replaced with the Avago 3310 optical sensor which runs at 400 / 800 / 1600 / 3200 DPI.

Intel Core i7-5960X Haswell-E Review
     Sun, Sep 21 2014 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's Extreme Edition processor line is over a decade old now, starting way back in 2003 with the single-core Pentium 4 EE 3.4GHz. Fast forward to today, the chip we'll be looking at boasts eight cores, a massive 20MB smart cache, support for the latest DDR4 memory, and is accompanied by the new X99 chipset for more SATA 6Gb/s ports (10 rather than just two) and finally brings native USB 3.0 to Intel's flagship platform.

PowerColor R9 285 Turbo Duo
     Sun, Sep 21 2014 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”After settling on a 1075MHz clock speed for the core I moved on to the memory and used the same strategy before fine tuning the result at 1511MHz. Overall the boost in core clock speed over the 945MHz factory clock speed was 130MHz on the core or roughly 13% worth of free clock speed. The Elpida GDDR5 memory ICs gave up just under 10% more clock speed or 136MHz. These are not stellar numbers, but 10%+ bumps in overall clock speed will give you that extra few FPS that may make 2560x1440 gaming that much more enjoyable.”

     Sun, Sep 21 2014 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD introduces its Tonga core GPU with the new Radeon R9 285, a card that picks up the battle for the $250 MSRP price segment from the R9 280, with NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 760 being the main target. Tonga is a potluck of features that span across various iterations of AMD architecture, including Mantle API support, CrossFire XDMA technology, TrueAudio, PowerTune, and project FreeSync. We review PowerColor's version of the card, the R9 285 TurboDuo featuring 2GB GDDR5 memory and a 945/1375 (5500 effective) MHz core/memory factory overclock, complete with a custom dual-fan cooling solution that promises increased performance with lower heat and noise levels.

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.
