NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 780
     Sun, Jun 30 2013 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you were still recovering from NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 780 launch, you'll want to brace yourself for another potential heavy hitter in the form of the new GTX 770. Though it's based on the GK104 GPU instead of the GK110 seen on the Titan and GTX 780, it still boasts GPU Boost 2.0 and core/memory clocks of up to 1085/7010 MHz. All that for $399, a far more affordable price than NVIDIA's last two high-performance cards. Hit our review to see how the GTX 770 stacks against the likes of the GTX 780 and AMD HD 7970!

Antec HCG-850M 850W Power Supply Unit
     Sun, Jun 30 2013 | 1:15P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While i am writing these lines the temperature here vary from 30-35 degrees Celsius (60-70 degrees Fahrenheit) and so because things will most definitely get worse as we get deeper in the summer period we can`t stress enough the importance of having a good power supply unit as part of your system. Now as some of you know during this years Computex most PSU manufacturers (if not all) introduced all their latest models with features aimed mostly towards enthusiasts and gamers. Naturally Antec was also present to introduce the latest modular additions in their High Current Gamer PSU line and since we`ve already checked out the very good HCG-750M a couple of weeks ago today we decided to take a step further and test its larger brother the HCG-850W 850W PSU."

     Sun, Jun 30 2013 | 12:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink

Roccat Kone Pure review: a mouse for delicate hands
     Sun, Jun 30 2013 | 12:02P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Roccat Kone Pure performs really well. The precision and sensitivity are very good, there's no acceleration and the lift-off distance is only 0.95 mm after calibration. The grip lends itself to low-sense gaming. The software is comprehensive and you can combine the mouse with a Roccat keyboard through the Roccat Talk protocol.

Synology DS213j review: deluxe entry-level NAS
     Sun, Jun 30 2013 | 12:00P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Synology's product line-up is pretty broad. At the top you have products like the DS713+, a powerful NAS with space for two disks. It's also very expensive. The DS213j is a much more affordable option, and you still get all of the features of the impressive Disk Station Manager firmware and room for two hard drives. It's a great way of getting introduced to a Synology NAS.

Noreve Sony Xperia Z Leather Case (Tradition B - 21038TB) Review @ Madshrimps
     Sun, Jun 30 2013 | 11:49A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Tradition B is another Sony Xperia Z case from Noreve, with the same high quality materials, but this time it was designed to open like a book. With this model we wont get the option to install a belt clip mechanism, but the customization of the color and finish is included. Depending on what type of finish and color we choose, it will take some time for it to get ready for shipping since all cases are hand made."

PowerColor HD 7850 1GB SCS3 Fanless Video Card Review @ HiTech Legion
     Sun, Jun 30 2013 | 10:04A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The PowerColor SCS3 heatsink has been updated to handle the 130W TDP Pitcairn Pro GPU. Instead of direct cooling, the PowerColor HD7850 1GB SCS3 makes use of the chassis` ambient cooling to keep thermal levels within optimal levels. The new SCS3 cooling solution consists of six 6mm heatpipes arranged in a g-shaped design distributing heat from the HD 7850 core to several sets of aluminum fin arrays. Understandably, the PowerColor SCS3 carries the stock core clock of a typical HD 7850 set to 860MHz so thermal load is more manageable. The PowerColor AX7850 1GBD5-S3DH requires a single 6-pin power connector and has a full-size DisplayPort and HDMI which supports 4K displays as well as a standard DVI port that supports resolutions up to 2560x1600."

Anker Astro Slim2 4500mAh Power Bank Review
     Sun, Jun 30 2013 | 9:03A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Anker is a company that knows and understands power banks and power solutions. The Astro Slim2 is a great example of Anker’s work and ability to help you with your power needs throughout the day. This power bank is a very smart not only in design, but also in function. The integrated Micro USB cable is an extremely nice touch, as it helps keep annoying wires out of the way when recharging devices (namely your phone). The dual recharging ports are a great added feature for those who may carry around two phones, such as myself, or those who want to help a friend out in need. "

Hardware.Info tests lifespan of Samsung SSD 840 250GB TLC SSD
     Sun, Jun 30 2013 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Samsung’s Series 840 SSDs offer great value for your money, but they use the relatively new TLC type of memory chips. These have a shorter lifespan than the more commonly used MLC chips, but how much shorter exactly? Samsung of course has full confidence in the longevity of their Series 840 SSDs, but there really is only one way to find out just how long buyers can expect a TLC-equipped drive to function: by testing the hell out of it. That is exactly what Hardware.Info did for the past 2.5 months. We took two Samsung SSD 840 250GB SSDs, filled them to half capacity in order to mimick real-life use, and started writing to them continuously. It’s been a long journey for our two Samsung 840 SSDs, and that’s good thing. They passed our endurance test with flying colors, lasting three times longer than the lifespan guaranteed by Samsung. Read our full report for the details.

"The CM Storm Power-RX seems to be the skinny brother to the Control-RX. Both were released at the same time to target different audiences. Cooler Master boasts that the Power-RX is designed for making precise and intricate movements with ease. It features their “Surgical Strike Surface” construction. Read on as we take a look…"

Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon
     Sun, Jun 30 2013 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Lenovo IdeaCentre Horizon is a 27-inch all-in-one and tablet PC hybrid. It has an Intel Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM and a multi-touch 1080p display. Performance with this hybrid is good and it comes pre-loaded with fun, useful software. "

Truly Ergonomic Mechanical Keyboard Model 207 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Jun 30 2013 | 8:21A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to ergonomic keyboards there are only a few to pick from and, for the most part, all of those are rubber dome keyboards. Ergonomic mechanical keyboards are really limited to two different models, one being the Truly Ergonomic. Today we are going to take a look to see how it compares to everything I have tested to date. I expect an adjustment period just to its shape alone, but as a writer by trade I am very curious how it will affect me day to day. The gamer in me is just as curious on how it will perform in game as well. Lets take a closer look."
