Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Battle Dragon Bag Review
     Sun, Nov 10 2013 | 1:06P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the end, I wasn`t able to get the kitchen sink into the Tt eSPORTS Battle Dragon Bag but that`s okay, because I think the challenge of almost anything was easily proven to be true. Besides putting a motherboard and RAM in the bag, I had about a full build worth of components crammed in; though mostly components. I have no doubt that this bag can carry everything you will need or want to a LAN party, friend`s house, or wherever you might be headed."

monCarbone Hovercoat Plus Case for iPhone 5/5S Review @ TestFreaks
     Sun, Nov 10 2013 | 11:08A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of my all-time favorite iPhone 4 cases was the HoverCoat from monCarbone. Its carbon fiber material made it light as a feather yet durable with steel like strength. With the release of the iPhone 5 and now iPhone 5S, monCarbone has introduced the HoverCoat Plus. This improved version adds Basalt fiber along with carbon fiber to enhance both signal reception and to boost durability."

OCZ Vector 150 240 Gigabyte Review @ Ocaholic
     Sun, Nov 10 2013 | 9:41A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their Vector series solid state disks OCZ has some very solid and well performing drives in their line-up. Today the US maker of SSDs launches the successor, which goes by the name Vector 150. Ahead of the actualy launch we received a Vector 150 with 240 Gigabyte for testing and we`re quite curious what it is that the Americans were actually able to improve, on the already good, Vector drive."

Assassins Creed Revelations 2-Years Later Review
     Sun, Nov 10 2013 | 9:31A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Are the lessons from the Assassins of old worth learning, or are some things best left unrevealed? In my opinion, the former. Assassin`s Creed Revelations is a very well made game with many outstanding qualities, including a great story and solid gameplay. It definitely succeeds its predecessors in all of the important ways, making it an easy game to recommend to anyone interested in the franchise. Though it would be nice if the main campaign were longer. The only possible qualification I can think of is that so much of the story references the previous games that playing it without knowing what happened before could be confusing. At the same time though, it presents multiple story points that are important for understanding what is happening in the other games, before and after Revelations. Basically, if you want to experience the story of the Assassin`s Creed franchise, this is a must play."

Leap Motion Controller LM-010 Performance Review
     Sun, Nov 10 2013 | 9:29A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in May the announcement of the Leap Motion Controller had me with the first sentence on the home page: ?With a wave of a hand or lift of a finger, you?re about to use your computer in a whole new way.? However I had to wait until the product launch in July before Benchmark Reviews was able to obtain one for me to conduct a review. Of course, once the review item arrived it was out of the box and on my computer in no time at all. I was really keen to begin testing so that I could share my exploits in discovering how effective this ?amazing device? really is. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests and evaluates the Leap Motion Controller (model LM-010) for functionality and innovation."

be quiet! Pure Power L8 700W Review
     Sun, Nov 10 2013 | 9:03A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Be quiet!'s Pure Power L8 700W is a decent mid- to high-end PSU that offers 80Plus Bronze certification and is produced by HEC (OEM). With the price of around US $100 it should not break anyones budget and still offer decent performance.

Battlefield 4 Benchmarked: Graphics & CPU Performance
     Sun, Nov 10 2013 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With roots that stretch back more than a decade and enough fans to justify new content every year, Battlefield is among the handful of franchises that needs no introduction around here. Even if you hate EA's approach modern military madness, you can typically expect Battlefield's graphics to raise the bar.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti: Taking GK110 To The Max
     Sat, Nov 09 2013 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While out at AMD's tech days in Hawaii, a number of folks were chit-chatting about recent developments and some of our peers felt compelled to mention how "terrified" NVIDIA was of AMD Hawaii GPU. They said that AMD caught NVIDIA off guard, and that they wouldn't have any real answer until well into 2014. We sat back and listened to all the chatter and wondered how these things could be said with such conviction. Quite frankly, it just didn't make any sense to us. NVIDIA's had the GK110 GPU that powers the GeForce GTX Titan, 780, and now the 780 Ti done for ages, and prior to today, the GPU's full capabilities hadn't been available on a consumer GPU. Remember, the GK110 used on the GTX Titan has one of its SMXes disabled. Anyway, to think NVIDIA didn't have something up their virtual sleeve seemed outlandish to us, and wouldn't you know it, a couple of weeks removed from AMD's launch and what do we have? A new flagship from NVIDIA that's ready action-The GeForce GTX 780 Ti. Take a look...

We reviewed Nvidia’s new flagship graphics card, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Ti. It’s faster and cheaper than a Titan. We tested the new card with lots of benchmarks, including on three monitors and 4K resolution.
