Asus MeMO Pad 7 (2014) Review
     Wed, Aug 13 2014 | 12:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The small form factor tablet market has gotten pretty crowded, particularly when it comes to budget models, and while the generally fantastic Google Nexus 7 can be had for around $215 nowadays, going below that usually involves some compromises. Today, I’m checking out Asus' attempt at a low-cost Android tablet and whether it’s worth your cash.

AMD A10-7800 Kaveri APU Review
     Wed, Aug 13 2014 | 12:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD promised many new APUs when unveiling its Kaveri architecture in January but until now was only able to deliver two, the $160 A10-7700K and $170 A10-7850K. It's a little confusing to see the company pitching an updated version of a product range that was never properly launched but on the bright side, AMD's Kaveri update seems a little more substantial than Intel's recent Haswell refresh. Today we'll be looking at the $155 A10-7800, which comes in 45W or 65W TDP modes and has a full-blown R7 GPU featuring 8 CUs with 512 SPUs and 32 TAUs like the unlocked A10-7850K.

Posted by: STAFF
For many people smartphone cameras have replaced standalone point-and-shoots as the go-to device for everyday photography, as they're easier to access and more compact to carry with you. But just what goes in to making a good smartphone camera? What hardware do companies use? What do pixel sizes and f-stops really mean? In this article I'll be exploring the hardware, key terms associated with photography, and some comparisons along the way.

Intel Pentium Anniversary Edition Review & Overclocking Build Guide
     Wed, Aug 13 2014 | 12:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For more than a decade tech-savvy users on a budget would commonly buy a sub-$100 CPU and achieve performance comparable to $200-$300 chips by overclocking. These days Intel locks down its lower end parts, but to mark the 20th anniversary of its Pentium brand, they've released a fully unlocked dual-core Pentium G3258 for $72 -- just what the overclocking community has been waiting for. We'll put it through its paces in a couple of builds of our own.

Samsung 845DC PRO Review (400/800GB) - Class Leading Speed and Endurance
     Wed, Aug 13 2014 | 9:32A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the 2014 Samsung SSD Global Summit, Samsung showcased its latest consumer SSD, the 850 PRO. Just like the 840 PRO before it, we loved the 850 PROs performance and technological advances. In fact, it is probably the best SATA 3 (6Gbps) drive on the market. As an enterprise reviewer, I expected the normal 6-12 month wait before the 850 PRO would spawn an enterprise cousin, as we have seen with the Samsung SM843 and 845DC EVO. That 12 month wait was closer to 12 minutes as Samsung surprised all in attendance with their announcement of the 845DC PRO, alongside the 850 PRO."

NZXT H440 Mid-Tower Chassis
     Wed, Aug 13 2014 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Still for just $120 we feel there are few mid-tower cases that can compare to what the NZXT H440 has to offer. The H440 is a seriously nice case to work with and allows inexperienced builders to come away with something that looks almost pre-built by a professional gaming system company.

Posted by: STAFF
Over the past week or so, we've seen an uproar over what some folks perceive as bait-and-switch tactics by SSD vendors Kingston and PNY, culminating with calls for a boycott. We got to the bottom of things to see whether consumers have truly been misled, and if so, what the appropriate response should be.

MSI Z97 Gaming 9 AC MSIs top tier gaming offering - Bjorn3d.com
     Wed, Aug 13 2014 | 7:43A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
MSI looks to be hitting Z97 pretty hard with not just a gaming board but a full line along with OC series boards and even standard boards so now this begs the question. If offering so many SKUs will it pay off in better customer satisfaction byhaving plenty of options of models to meet their needs or will it be a case of too many options and actually confuse the consumers? That is one of the risks board manufacturers take when they start to expand to multiple lines each with growing numbers of options and SKUs. Now to the board we have today which is the MSI Z97 Gaming 9 AC which is the top end of the MSI gaming series models. The AC moniker denotes the addition of 802.11 AC WiFi to the mix ensuring absolute connectivity solutions. "

Silicon Power Slim S60 240GB SSD Review
     Wed, Aug 13 2014 | 1:12A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mainstream is a word i never expected to use when referring to solid state drives (SSDs) but thanks to the continuous price drops and the increased competition in the market today i don`t think i know of a single person that doesn`t own at least one. What`s even more interesting however is the amount of manufacturers that currently offer complete NAND flash controller packages (hardware & software). Back in the beginning things were quite simple for consumers since we just had Indilinx, Marvell and SandForce solutions to choose from but now several years later there are many more players in the market to choose from including Samsung, Intel, Seagate (LinkAMedia), Marvell, OCZ (Indilinx), Avago (LSI/Sandforce) and PHISON. That being said we haven`t had a SSD wearing a LSI/SandForce controller on our test bench for quite some time now but the latest Slim S60 model by Silicon Power does and we just had to take a look and see how it competes against the other controllers available currently."
