Google Chrome uses DirectWrite for font rendering
     Sat, Dec 27 2014 | 8:18P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The latest version (37) of Google Chrome uses DirectWrite for font rendering on Windows PCs. DirectWrite is a DirectX API made for the purpose of high-quality, resolution-independent text rendering. On paper it sounds great, but some people might not like the new fonts appearance (blurry text on some websites). This guide will show you how to disable DirectWrite."

MSI X99S Gaming 9 AC Motherboard Review
     Sat, Dec 27 2014 | 4:05P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The MSI X99S Gaming 9 AC motherboard is another crowning achievement for MSI, combining innovations from their previous board lines with the raw power embodied in the Intel X99 chipset. I quickly became enamored with the board after its initial unboxing, its sleek black and red highlighted design appealing to my inner computer enthusiast. Aesthetically, MSI put a lot of thought in to the implementation an layout of this board. The armor overlay sitting on top of the audio components and I/O cover give the board a nice and uniform appearance. Once powered, the board becomes even slicker looking with its glowing Dragon logo embedded in the chipset heat sink and red glowing audio PCB separator and chipset. The red glow gives the board an under-lit appearance along the back edge as well, adding too its allure."

Cougar 700M Gaming Mouse
     Sat, Dec 27 2014 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With such a wide variety of mice on the market we sometimes tend to focus just on what comes out from the largest of the manufactures. We sometimes forget that some of the companies that we now see as being large brands used to just be small up and coming brands. It’s nice to step back and check out what some of the other manufactures are doing. A great example of this is Cougar, just a few years ago they jumped into the fan market and we were very impressed with their offering. I’ve even seen some of their fans in use at our events. Well recently they jumped into the peripherals market and today I will be checking out their 700M gaming mouse to see if it has what it takes to stand out in a crowded market.
