ASRock FM2A88X Extreme6+ Motherboard Review
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
FM2+ Motherboards sporting the A88X chipset started appearing in October 2013, but the improved functionality over the latest FM2 motherboards only became truly apparent with the release of the Kaveri line of APUs in January 2014. Add to that the recent release of AMD drivers supporting the Mantle API, and the FM2+ motherboards start to make sense. Benchmark Reviews has the AMD A10-7850K APU and a couple of FM2+ motherboards on hand. This article is dedicated to reviewing the ASRock FM2A88X Extreme6+ Motherboard to discover what sets it apart from the rest of the FM2+ crowd.

Intel SSD 2500 Pro 240GB Solid State Drive Review
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 2:37P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel’s solid state storage offerings are as diverse as they come. Although Intel started with only a single family of enthusiast-class drives a number of years ago, the company has since expanded its scope to include everything from ultra-high-end PCI Express-based offerings to small, entry-level SATA drives, meant to be used solely as a cache. The product we’ll be showing you here, the just-announced Intel SSD 2500 Pro, falls somewhere in the middle of Intel’s SSD line-up. The SSD 2500 Pro is the follow-up to last year’s SSD 1500 Pro series, which targets corporate and small-business clients. The drive shares much of its DNA with some of Intel’s consumer-class drives, but the Pro series cranks things up a few notches with support for advanced security and management features, low power states, and an extended management toolset.

Intel Pentium 20th Anniversary Edition G3258 CPU Review
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 2:37P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel announced earlier this year the Haswell refresh lineup together with the release of their latest mainstream chipset, the Z97. This refresh release was overshadowed by the eagerly awaited high end K SKU Devils Canyon and the low end 20th Anniversary Pentium processor; especially the latter is a very interesting product as it now sports a fully unlocked multiplier and retails at an insane low price. We have to thank the boys from Denmark Zzolio and Riska which allowed us to spend some time with their G3258 Pentium ES processor.

Intel Core i7-4790K Devil's Canyon Processor Review
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 2:37P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Intel Core i7-4790K and Core i5-4690K are without a doubt the most anticipated processors to come to market for the LGA1150 platform since the first Haswell processors were released back in June 2013. Read on to find out how the Intel Core i7-4790K performs!

Intel Core i7-4790K Devil’s Canyon
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 2:36P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When Intel announced their Haswell refresh some of us questioned where the “K-Series” unlocked processors were. We soon found out that Intel was working on two special processors made for enthusiasts codenamed “Devil’s Canyon”. These “Devil’s Canyon” processors would make up the K-Series of the Haswell refresh, but also have features that the other processors do not. Intel has addressed many issues that we saw on Ivy Bridge and Haswell processors in the past. Today we will be taking a look at the flagship Core i7-4790K quad-core processor. This is Intel’s first consumer processor to be clocked at 4.0 GHz and it actually boosts all the way up to 4.4 GHz! Let’s take a look…"

New Intel CEO outlines company product plans
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 2:36P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
From datacenters to ultra-mobile devices such as tablets, phones and wearables, computing segments are undergoing exciting and even game-changing transitions, said new Intel CEO Brian Krzanich during the opening session of the Intel Developer Forum on September 10. Krzanich laid out Intel's vision and described how Intel is addressing each dynamic market segment - such as accelerating Intel's progress in ultra-mobile devices - with new products over the next year and beyond, including a new, lower-power product family.

Posted by: STAFF
"The Cooler Master V1200 Platinum PSU arrived Technic3D. See you in the following Review from Technic3D the next PSU with one +12V rail (100A), a 135mm Fan, 12x SATA hard disk connectors and 6x PCI-e 6+2-Pin."

Zalman ZM-VE300 External Hard Drive Enclosure Review
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 12:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The ZM-VE300 is a great tool for having portable data and could save some space by no longer needing disk or disk drives. That being said, it is still something that most PC users would not need or use often, but for those who do need both an external hard drive and the ability to mount ISO files and use a virtual optical drive, there are not many options on the market."

Biostar Hi-Fi Z97WE Motherboard Review @HiTech Legion
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 12:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have to take a look at the Biostar Hi-FI Z97WE motherboard as a basic motherboard that anyone can use. Especially when we consider that it is in the budget to mainstream price range what you get is expected."

Mionix Nash 20 Headset Review @HiTech Legion
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 12:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"You know, I still have no idea what D.A.C.T. drivers are….but I do know that I like them. The Mionix Nash 20 truly came out of left field for me. I just wasn’t expecting anything like what I got, and certainly not anything nearly this good. While they are (sometimes) a “gaming” headset, Mionix is showing off a stellar all-around headset with the Nash 20, and that is few and far between in computer component manufacturers, or by any manufacturer at this price point."

Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan Black review
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A while ago Nvidia launched the GeForce GTX Titan Black which we review. We never tested it as it was supposed to be a professional series and targeted card. Nvidia's Board partners however are slowly re-releasing this product as a gaming graphics card, as well as Nvidia who is plugging the product in their gaming benchmarks on their own website. As such, we figured that it is about time we review this puppy as well. Meet Joe Black, ehm Geforce GTX Titan Black.

ASUS Z97 SaberTooth Mark 1 Motherboard Review
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this review we look at the ASUS Z97 SaberTooth Mark 1 motherboard from ASUS. The Z97 TUF themed mainboard is intended for Intel's 22nm Haswell and Haswell refresh processors on that Socket LGA1150 platform. It is a mainstream to high-end segmented product amongst the ASUS Sabertooth series that comes with some nice features and very decent overclock potential. Read the entire article right here.

Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan-Z
     Tue, Jul 22 2014 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Join us as we exclusively review that untamed beast, the GeForce GTX Titan-Z. A dual-GPU graphics card that created a lot of controversy, we'll go in-depth once again to see whether or not this 2850 EUR product even has a chance to compete with the 1300 EUR AMD Radeon R9 295x2. We test the product with the hottest games like Thief, Watch Dogs, Battlefield 4 and many more. We'll look at Ultra HD gaming, thermal imaging and heat response, we'll overclock it, we'll fire off FCAT at it. In short, you are in for a 30 page treat today.

Jul 27 | Motherboards
The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
