Kingston HyperX Beast DDR3 16GB 1866MHz Kit Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Fri, Jun 28 2013 | 3:37A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It seems that we are seeing more and more products coming from Kingston Technology, since the end of CES. Probably the most impressive product was the new 512GB and 1TB HyperX flash drive. Just imagine walking around with that much storage capacity in your pocket. There are many new products we see coming from Kingston, but one that we love the most are love their memory. We have seen two new models from Kingston just recently and we just got our hands on one of them. The first model would be the new HyperX Beast, which we will be checking out today, and other is the HyperX 10TH anniversary edition. The HyperX Beast seems to be the new top dog from Kingston as it is sporting a new heat sink design. The Beast stays even cooler with it stepping up the ante with a super high frequency of 2400MHZ."

SanDisk Extreme II SSD Review (240GB) - SanDisk Finds That Sweet Spot and Hits a Home Run
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 11:13P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SanDisk Extreme II SSD has shown some of the best test results we have seen to date and they have been consistent. In examining PCMark Vantage alone, surpassing that 70,000 point plateau is hard enough, but scoring between the Samsung Pro and OCZ Vector we truly never believed would occur!"

     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 5:52P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Like the SilverStone Sugo SG09 SFF Case, the SG10 is an outstanding. The only difference between the two is the SG10 has a different front panel and comes with the new AP181 fan. The SG10 case looks fantastic, has excellent build quality, lots of fans and more can be added, fits full length video card, USB 3 ports and much more. " ~3dGameMan.com

As components made through metal injection molding (MIM) have started becoming popular among downstream brand vendors recently, component makers are aggressively investing in MIM production to satisfy client demand, according to sources from the upstream supply chain.

"The Thermaltake Armor Revo Gene Snow Edition Case looks good, great build quality, plenty of drive bays, external drive dock, headset/headphones holder, cable management, window and fan option for left side panel and more. Also, there are two color options, white and black." ~3dGameMan.com

SanDisk Ultra Plus Solid State Drive Review
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 5:50P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SanDisk Ultra Plus is a solid state drive with a platform that we are not yet familiar with: it is built on a four-channel Marvell SS889175 controller with 19 nm eX2 ABL MLC NAND manufactured by SanDisk. Will this combination prove to be a winner especially considering it very attractive price?

GTX 780 3 GB Graphics Card Review
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 5:50P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The flagship graphics accelerator from Nvidia’s new line-up was introduced quite unexpectedly. It raised not only the performance bar, but also the price maximum. Our today’s review will unveil how big of an increase occurred on all fronts.

Asus P8Z77-V Mainboard Review
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 5:50P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The functionality and features of this mainboard could have been fit for a flagship board of the past, but today it is just enough to place this product in the very mainstream segment, making it the junior model from Asus on Intel Z77 Express chipset. And it is probably the first time that we see wireless support implemented in a far not the top mainboard model like that.

ADATA XPG SX900 256GB SSD Review
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 5:49P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SSD market is very competitive at the moment, to say the least, and though ADATA isn't always necessarily front and center, the company has a handful of interesting product offerings, including the ADATA XPG SX900 we'll be showing you here. SSD manufacturers sometimes roll with proprietary controllers, such as OCZ and Samsung, while others adopt third-party products. ADATA falls into the latter category. The XPG SX900 packs an LSI SandForce 2281 controller, which is one of the more popular solutions at this time...

werPC Gamer Xtreme 5200 Haswell System Review
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 5:42P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Now that Intel's 4th-generation Core processors are flowing in the market, all your favorite boutique builders are churning out new systems based around those Haswell chips. The new Intel processors require a new socket (LGA 1150), and the associated motherboards have the new Z87 chipset. If you're as excited as we are to see how Haswell fares, stick around--there's a lot of good stuff coming down the pike. One of our first Haswell-based system is the CyberPowerPC Gamer Xtreme 5200, which comes in a surprisingly subdued mid-tower chassis that belies the powerful components inside. It's hard to say what CyberPowerPC's going for aesthetically here, but it's easy to see that this machine is fully loaded.

ASUS Z87-Deluxe LGA 1150 Motherboard Review
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 5:41P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS Z87-Deluxe motherboard is one fine piece of hardware. Its feature set and ASUS' attention to detail not only raise the bar but break the old bar over its knee. If you're looking for a home for a Haswell CPU, then you've got to see the Z87-Deluxe in action and all the very usable features it packs in.

Gaming Hall of Shame
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 5:41P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although some decent games do poorly for no good reason, many titles are so headscratchingly bad that you have to wonder why the developer even bothered. In the group of terribly bad games, there are the truly bad ones and then there are the big flops: those that have built an irredeemable amount of hype. Without further ado, here's our PC gaming hall of shame: games that weren't cancelled but should have been...

Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 SLI
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 5:41P | Video Cards | PermaLink

The GeForce GTX 760 is already one hell of a graphics card, but with two in hand we couldn't resist the urge to see what happens when we double thing up

GeForce GTX 760 Review: Mainstream Performance
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 5:40P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia has continued to roll out the GeForce 700 series this week with the GTX 760 -- the generation's first truly mainstream product, with pricing well under that of the GTX Titan, 780 and even the 770, which at $400 still costs more than the average gamer is willing to spend. In other words, the GTX 760 has the potential to be today's most relevant option for someone who needs a new graphics card. Previous 700 series cards have been heavy hitters, with the GTX 770 packing about as much muscle as the GTX 680 for about $100 less. Assuming Nvidia doesn't throw us a curve ball, we expect the GTX 760 to deliver performance comparable to that of the HD 7950 with a price tag that's closer to HD 7870s -- a situation that would invariably benefit anyone shopping for a mid-range GPU.

Gigabyte GTX 760 OC Windforce
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 5:40P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA tweaks and repackages the GK104 GPU previously seen in the GeForce GTX 600 series cards for their new GTX 760 on the test bench today. Its implementation in the GTX 760 is slightly trimmer with 1152 CUDA cores, but the new card does feature an updated GPU Boost 2.0 and Adaptive Tempurature controller. With a 980MHz base core clock (1033MHz boost) and 2GB GDDR5 memory clocked at 1502MHz (6008MHz effective) on a 256-bit memory interface, the GTX 760 was designed to replace the GTX 660 Ti and should challenge AMD's Radeon HD 7950. Hit our review to see how the new $299.99 card stacks against the likes of AMD's HD 7970.
