Section 8: Prejudice Review
     Sat, Jun 04 2011 | 5:20P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"In 2009 TimeGate Studios released a first person shooter called Section 8 which gained a decent online following thanks to a good multi-player experience. The follow up features refinements to the multi-player and a new single player campaign but the twist is that this is a download only title (for 360/PS3 and PC) which costs £9.99/$15 rather than the £30-40 or $50 that most new titles launch at."

"USB 3.0 products are still new in the market and so far there are only two USB 3.0 products from Kingston; DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 & HyperX Max 3.0. Kingston HyperX Max 3.0 is a pretty unique product as it is an external drive with solid-state flash components instead of traditional HDD and its USB 3.0 interface allows it to achieve 10 times faster speed than USB 2.0 products."

Posted by: STAFF
"Today on our test bench we have the GTX 560 iChill from Inno3D's Freezer X Series. What does that mean? It means a triple slot cooler, custom PCB and factory overclock and we will look at how the card performs in some of the latest games, such as DiRT 3, The Witcher 2 and Portal 2. The tests don't stop there though as we will, as always, take a look at media playback, 3D Vision performance and GPU computing."

Azza Toledo 301 Budget Gaming Tower
     Fri, Jun 03 2011 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The goal of AZZA when it came time to release the Toledo 301 unto the world was to offer the customer a great looking budget gaming case, but not budget on features with toting many of those of more expensive case.

600T mid-tower is an updated
     Fri, Jun 03 2011 | 2:43P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When the Corsair 600T was first released it was only available in gun-metal gray and as we all know black has been in style for years, but is starting to get boring. Corsair recognized this and has 'refreshed' the 600T in order to bring out a Special Edition White case that looks pretty stunning with a mixture of white and black bezels. The Special Edition white also comes with a hole in the side panel that you can insert either an acrylic window or mesh panel into depending on how you want to configure the case. Both panels are included, which is a nice touch as you can change it when your needs change down the road..."

Crosshair V Formula (AMD 990FX) Motherboard Review
     Fri, Jun 03 2011 | 5:11A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Alongside the launch of the new AMD 990FX chipset, I think most people would like to be seeing the next generation of AMD CPUs come with it. As AMD don't hop around changing the socket every 5 minutes like Intel, though, the interesting thing is, that while we've got a delay in the Bulldozer line of CPUs the 990FX based motherboards can still be released. What's interesting is that AMD and its partners don't seem all that keen on getting the new 990FX based boards reviewed. There are two major features that the new 990FX chipset offer; SLI and Bulldozer CPU support, neither of which we'll be looking at today. The reason for this is because one isn't released, and the other isn't going to be nearly appreciated as much using CPU architecture that has been around for ages now."

Posted by: STAFF
“Today we have a set of Crucial Ballistix Smart Tracer 6GB DDR3-1600 modules. These aren't the garden variety Tracer sticks that simply blink; no, these are Smart Tracers, the intelligent cousin to the original design. Not only do they blink, but you can change the pattern and colour of the lighting effects, while still monitoring the temperatures of your pimped-up memory sticks.”
