WD Se 4TB Enterprise Hard Drive Review @ Techgage
     Tue, Jun 04 2013 | 10:14A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With its Se series of enterprise hard drives, WD is targeting those in need of bulk storage, whether it be in a datacenter or NAS. Its biggest perk is that it almost perfectly mimics the company`s Re drives, boasting a 5-year warranty, models ranging from 2 - 4TB, and best of all, a price tag of up to $80 less."

Zotac GeForce GTX 780 @ Bjorn3D
     Tue, Jun 04 2013 | 10:14A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hot on the heels of the GTX Titan comes the new GTX780 that uses the same type of GPU as we see in the GTX Titan. Zotac of course is one of the companies coming out with their own GTX780 card and we have taken it for a spin to see how it fares compared to the GTX 680 as well as the Zotac GTX Titan AMP! Edition that we tested earlier this month."

Intel Haswell i7-4770K & i5-4670K Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Tue, Jun 04 2013 | 9:31A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After more than two years of speculation Intel`s Haswell is finally here.  This new architecture incorporates several new and potentially game-changing features into a 22nm die that consumes substantially less power than Ivy Bridge.  In this review we take a look at two processors:  the i7 4770K and the i5 4670K."

Haswell: Core i7 4770K and Core i5 4670K @ Ocaholic
     Tue, Jun 04 2013 | 9:22A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Haswell, this is the codename of Intels latest CPU generation which is based on an overworked Ivy Bridge microarchitecture. We had the chance to test two new CPUs, namely the Core i7-4770K and the Core i5-4670K. Intel claims that the new quad core processors are faster than the previous generation of Core i7-3XXX as well as Core i5-3XXX CPUs. The new processors, like the predecessor, features 22 nanometer transistors. This time we should find the biggest improvements with the integrated graphics unit and we`re really curious to find out how well a job Intel did."

Rosewill T600N Wireless Router Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Jun 04 2013 | 8:21A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this modern area of wireless networking, the market is flooded with devices with advanced feature sets, sometimes not performing as well as others. This trade-off can be frustrating. Sometimes, the basic features are all one really needs in a WiFi router, and the Rosewill T600N fills that gap. Its an 802.11a/b/g/n router that can do 300 Mbps per frequency and even features standard replaceable antennas for its 2.4 GHz radio. ThinkComputers takes a look at this sub $60 unit that frequently can be found online for under $50!"

Adaptec (by PMC) ASR-72405 RAID Controller (X2) Review - 1M IOPS & 12GB/s Thru 24 SMART Optimus SSDs
     Tue, Jun 04 2013 | 8:02A | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we first caught wind of the Adaptec Series 7 RAID adapters late last year, we were itching for the chance to get it in our test bench. But, in order to do the review justice, we needed SSDs. We needed a LOT of SSDs. We needed 24 SSDs. Unfortunately, sampling even 4 or 8 SSDs at one time is often difficult. That is why we jumped at the chance to test out the Adaptec ASR-72405 with 24 x SMART Optimus 200GB SAS SSDs."

Samsung MV900F Wi-Fi 16.3MP Digital Camera Review @ ModSynergy.com
     Mon, Jun 03 2013 | 4:27P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Call this the last hurrah, or the last stand of the digital camera if you want, but, if I were to review a digital camera on this website, it had better be one that is refreshingly innovative and different from ones everyone has already seen. That is precisely the case with today`s review of the new Samsung MultiView MV900F Smart Wi-Fi 16.3MP Digital Camera."

MSI Z87-GD65 GAMING (LGA 1150) @ techPowerUp
     Mon, Jun 03 2013 | 2:13P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Man the ramparts! A dragon is approaching! It`s coming to eat our pretty Haswells! Clad in black and red like its older brother, MSI`s Z87-GD65 GAMING was genetically engineered from the base DNA the Z77-GD65 GAMING used, but don`t be fooled, the Z87-GD65 GAMING has a few unique abilities."

AMD Kabini Mainstream APU Notebook Platform Preview @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Jun 03 2013 | 2:09P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The power consumption results at idle and load are nothing short of amazing. The AMD Kabini reference platform was 2-3 times faster than the original Brazos platform and uses far less power! The AMD A4-5400 APU isn`t a power hog at all and at idle the entire system used just 4.9 Watts of power. In Prime95 the Kabini system peaked at just shy of 15W..."
