     Thu, Apr 28 2016 | 2:31P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this article we take a look at the new Asustor AS3204T NAS. We review the 4-bay NAS server which has been designed to be extremely price competitive with a low price, yet offering serious performance as Asustor embedded an Intel Celeron 1.60 GHz Quad-Core Processor with turbo to 2.24 GHz and 2 GB of system memory. The AS3204T is not only a fast file server, it's also loaded with applications and features as well. Heck you can even connect it towards your HDTV and run KODI from it.

     Thu, Apr 28 2016 | 12:14P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You might want to buy an inexpensive SSD, but hardly anyone wants to compromise on safety and durability. After testing the Crucial MX200 1 TB and MX200 500 GB SSD, we have now also tested the Crucial MX200 250 GB SSD. The MX200 250 GB SSD is quite inexpensive due to its lower capacity, but offers reliability and data security. If you have to take compromising performance in buying, we show in the following review at OCinside.

XFX R9 Fury Triple Dissipation
     Thu, Apr 28 2016 | 12:14P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Earlier reviews of the R9 Fury pointed out a lack of overclocking capability, especially when talking about the High Bandwidth Memory. I found that I was able to squeeze some additional clock speed headroom out of both the Fiji core and the HBM. In my testing I was able to see clock speed increases of over 10%. Pretty stout for a card with supposedly no overclocking headroom. In each case, the R9 Fury delivered improved gaming performance with the clock speed bump. To reach the tuned clock speeds I did have to push more current through the core. Usually this results in a significant bump in the card's thermals. However, the Tripe Dissipation cooling system XFX worked on does a phenomenal job at keeping the components cool. In fact, this has been one of the best cooling solution/GPU combos I have ever tested. XFX's six heat pipe, dual fin array solution just gets it done, and quietly. Even when the IP-5x fan speeds are cranked up, the noise penalty is not severe in any way. Especially when you have the chassis buttoned up.”

Posted by: STAFF
On our review bench today is the AMD A10-7890K, the fastest APU yet released by the chipmaker for the budget computing market segment. Priced at $149.99 USD or lower, the A10-7890K boasts a 4.1/4.3GHz base/Turbo core clock for a maximum theoretical 1.02 TFLOPS of compute performance, integrated Radeon R7 class graphics, and has the option of coming with AMD's near-silent 125W heatsink dubbed the "Wraith".

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga Review
     Thu, Apr 28 2016 | 12:12P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ThinkPad X1 Yoga marks a marriage between two of Lenovo's premium notebook lines: the ThinkPad X1 Carbon and the ThinkPad Yoga... Today's ThinkPad X1 Yoga evolution promises to extend the ultra-functional 2-in-1 form factor to a roomier 14 inch size while maintaining the X1 Carbon's thin profile and, of course, carbon-fiber construction. The ThinkPad's design takes shape more targeted to the work at hand, rather than eye candy. If the X1 Yoga here is going to carry that torch it needs to let you work efficiently and comfortably.

Building an extreme gaming rig, enthusiast grade workstation of simply a system that offers some akin to installing a work of art in your office space can be quite an expensive endeavour.
