EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 SC Gaming ACX 3.0
     Tue, Jun 28 2016 | 5:34P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 video card is currently the most powerful graphics card in the world according to our own benchmarks. The GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition is a great card, but many are waiting for custom board partner cards that feature higher clock frequencies and custom cooling solutions to become readily available. NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 and GeForce GTX 1070 cards are still hard to find, but supply is slowly getting better. EVGA currently offers five different EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 models ranging in price from $609.99 for their base model all the way up to $699.99 for the Founders Edition. Today, we’ll be looking at the EVGA GTX 1080 SC Gaming that sports a pretty decent overclock straight out of the box and is priced right in the middle.

MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X 8 GB

Posted by: STAFF
MSI's GeForce GTX 1070 Gaming X is an overclocked custom-design variant of the GTX 1070, which is whisper quiet even during heavy gaming thanks to its dual fan TwinFrozr thermal solution. We overclocked this $439 card in our review too, where it's even faster than the GeForce GTX 1080.

Consumers considering an iPad Pro
     Tue, Jun 28 2016 | 5:33P | Chipset | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MateBook only ships with Core m processors, a necessity of the incredibly thin and fanless design that Huawei is using. That obviously will put the MateBook behind other tablets and notebooks that use the Core i3/i5/i7 processors, but with a power consumption advantage along the way. Honestly, the performance differences between the Core m3 and m5 and m7 parts is pretty small – all share the same 4.5 watt TDP and all have fairly low base clock speeds and high boost clocks. The Core m5-6Y54 that rests in our test sample has a base clock of 1.1 GHz and a maximum Turbo Boost clock of 2.7 GHz. The top end Core m7-6Y75 has a base of 1.2 GHz and Boost of 3.1 GHz. The secret of course is that these processors run at Turbo clocks very infrequently; only during touch interactions and when applications demand performance.

EVGA Nvidia GTX 1080 Founders Edition Review
     Tue, Jun 28 2016 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are not sure the dust has settled around the latest Nvidia Pascal GPU architecture launch, not even the AMD’s new R9 480 graphics card has managed to steal the stage entirely. We remember the original GeForce 256 which replaced the Riva TNT2 and basically started the graphics world you know today. It introduced phrases such as transform and lighting to gaming and advertisements. We loved the Riva TNT2 and Riva 128, Matrox, S3, the Voodoo 3DFX range, Rendition and giving Nvidia a run for its money over the past 17 years, ATI.

Crucial MX300 SSD Review (750GB)
     Mon, Jun 27 2016 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For what seemed like an eternity Samsung has been the leader in manufacturing 3D NAND. Starting with the release of the Samsung 850 Pro two years ago, they have paved the way for innovation. 3D NAND brings greater capacity, power efficiency, and lower cost to the consumers. After first announcing their 32-Layer 3D NAND last year in March, we have been patiently awaiting Micron and Intel to finally step into the game to combat Samsung in this regard. Luckily for us, we don't need to wait any longer. Today, Crucial releases the Limited Edition MX300, a 750GB, 2.5" 7mm form factor SSD powered by Micron's latest 3D TLC NAND! We can finally get hand's on experience with the collaborative result of Micron's and Intel's labor to see how it compares to the competition. Read on to learn more as we put the Limited Edition Crucial MX300 to the test.

Posted by: STAFF
Samsung has released the 500 GB version of the 750 EVO SSD. The 750 series should be a notch more price-competitive yet offers enthusiast class SATA3 performance. Armed with truckloads of performance and that attractive pricing, Samsung will once again set the tone!

Gigabyte 990FX Gaming Motherboard Review
     Sun, Jun 26 2016 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As a hardware reviewer it is difficult to get excited over old hardware and while my enthusiast roots cringe whenever anyone suggests an AMD build even though I know the CPU can play “some” of the latest titles and for the most part still very affordable.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 G1 Gaming Review

Posted by: STAFF
Since first testing the reference Founders Edition GTX 1080 a month ago, we have been eagerly anticipating getting our hands on the board partner versions. The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1080 G1 Gaming is a triple fan cooled 1080 that also boasts a redesigned PCB. Even though it's currently out of stock pretty much everywhere, we expect availability to improve shortly.

Total War: Warhammer DirectX 12 Graphics Performance Analysis
     Sun, Jun 26 2016 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Total War franchise has entertained fans of the strategy genre who have a penchant for barbaric historical periods since the dawn of PC gaming. Furthermore, these bloody conflicts brought history to life and gave users an insight into the harsh reality of classical warfare. Not only that, the ability to plan strategic onslaughts and react to the enemy’s movements is incredibly satisfying. Of course, Total War titles are set on a huge scale featuring a massive quantity of ground units which requires a thoughtful approach. The latest entry is quite unusual and based on the Warhammer fantasy series. Throughout the game, you can select between four playable factions: the Dwarfs, the Empire of Man, the Greenskins and the Vampire counts. According to Metacritic, the game has received a relatively positive response from both professional critics and PC users.
