Toshiba HG5D Series SATA M.2 SSD Review (512GB)
     Mon, Oct 14 2013 | 2:09P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Known as the HG5d Series of Toshiba solid state drives, the cSSD (or client SSD) can be found in PC systems worldwide, however, is not available through retail sales. The HG5d cSSD family is comprised of 2.5 notebook, mSATA and M.2 form factor SSDs with capacities of 60, 128, 256 and 512GB. All speak to low power consumption, three-year warranties applicable only to manufacturing partners, and all take advantage of Toshibas newest 19nm Toggle Mode 2.0 MLC memory. The M.2 family of the HG5d cSSD is a SATA M.2 SSD and listed performance is variable, depending on capacity. Our sample 512GB M.2 SSD can reach 534MB/s read and 482MB/s write with 90KIOPS read and 35KIOPS write. 128 and 256GB capacities have the same read performance but write speeds are listed at 471MB/s with read IOPS a bit lower at 80K."

Grand Theft Auto V Review: A Triple Dose of Satirical Fun
     Mon, Oct 14 2013 | 12:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You're undoubtedly familiar with the GTA franchise, if not from having hands-on experience with previous titles, then by the frequent media outcries about in-game violence. Developer Rockstar Games is often the recipient of criticism and moral outrage whenever a politician or media figure covers a real-world tragedy and tries to connect the event to violent video games. The most current GTA title at any given point in time is always an easy target, and GTA V is no exception. If you're reading this, then chances are you're okay with that, so I'm not going to spend much time focusing on the moral angle of the grossly inappropriate tasks presented in GTA V and what that says about our society. Perhaps we're all a little twisted on the inside, as evidenced by GTA V raking in over $1 billion during its first three days.

     Mon, Oct 14 2013 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The G1.Sniper B5 is an affordable Haswell motherboard in Gigabyte's gaming line. Partially due to the fact it uses the Intel B85 chipset, Gigabyte was able to keep the price below £100. But were they able to keep the gaming DNA intact?

Be Quiet! Pure Power L8 700W Power Supply Review
     Mon, Oct 14 2013 | 11:08A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Pure Power L8 700W PSU doesnt incorporate the same sophisticated circuit topology of the Dark Power Pro 10 series, which results in lower efficiency (Bronze status instead of Platinum) but saves money. The Pure Power L8 uses a 120mm SilentWings fan instead of the 135mm high-tech version used in the Dark Power Pro 10, but it still runs extremely quiet at low to mid power levels. And while the Dark Power Pro comes with modular cables and a 5-year warranty the Pure Power L8 comes with fixed cables and a 3-year warranty."

Posted by: STAFF
When we received a tour of Cooler Master’s suite at CES this year, one of the most intriguing showcases were the new keyboards. Previously, Cooler Master was not known as a company dabbling too much into gaming. This time around however, the gaming peripherals and hardware were endless.One of the biggest surprises was the CM Storm Trigger featuring Cherry MX Green switches. The innovation was definitely showing from Cooler Master, and we knew they were serious about gaming hardware. After numerous sponsorships of teams and events, it was time for them to enter the market completely.
