Intel Core-i7 4770K Haswell Processor Review @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Jun 01 2013 | 9:31A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After months of rumors and speculation, Intel`s 4th generation Core CPUs, code-named Haswell, are here. Haswell CPUs are a tock-- that is, a new microarchitecture-- in Intel`s tick-tock annual release cycle. Based on the same 22nm fabrication process and 3-D transistors introduced with last year`s Ivy Bridge CPUs, Haswell brings with it a new socket 1150, which means that you can`t just drop it in to replace an Ivy Bridge or Sandy Bridge CPU, since you`ll need a new motherboard. But what new features and performance does Intel`s Haswell processor bring with it? Let`s find out."

GIGABYTE Z87X-UD3H Intel Z87 Haswell Motherboard Review
     Sat, Jun 01 2013 | 9:22A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GIGABYTE Z87X-UD3H Intel Z87 motherboard is the first motherboard with the Intel LGA1150 socket to come across my bench and after seeing the numbers today, I think the Haswell platform is going to be a great platform for those looking for a complete upgrade from an older system.

Removing and Wiping Drivers Guide
     Sat, Jun 01 2013 | 8:21A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you open Driver Fusion you will be greeted by the `Driver Inspection` page, which lists the different drivers you may want it to scan for. Just click on the items in the list in order to select them, and clicking on multiple items will select those multiple items. Pressing the `Analyze` button will have the program start searching for what remains of the drivers you told it to look for, and what it finds will be listed for you to inspect. It finds files, folders, and registry entries, each of which you can choose to leave on your computer by clicking the appropriate checkbox on the side of the list. It may be a good idea to check this list before pressing the `Delete` button because it may find something you do not want deleted, such as files that have been extracted for when you install new drivers. You can see I have unchecked the C:\NVIDIA directory in the screenshot, and I did so specifically for that reason."

Logitech k310 Washable Keyboard
     Fri, May 31 2013 | 10:14A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
How many times have you accidentally spilled water or soda on your precious keyboard? Well i can`t speak on behalf of everyone out there but it has happened to me more than just once and unfortunately most keyboards out there if not all of them offer nothing to counter the effects of something like that. So if you are lucky enough to just spill water on your keyboard chances are that it will still keep working after you dry it but if you are unlucky enough to spill soda then ingredients like sugar and citric acid will definitely ruin it or at the very least put you through lots of trouble cleaning it. Well with the latest k310 washable keyboard Logitech just might have the ideal solution to such incidents and naturally we just had to take it for a spin."
