NVIDIA The Way Its Meant to Be Played 2013 Press Event
     Thu, Oct 24 2013 | 6:46P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since the G-Sync monitors are designed to refresh with your frame rates, dips in FPS no longer affect your experience it`s all buttery smooth through and through. Words only go so far though. Seeing it in person was truly eye-opening. We were shown a live demonstration comparing a regular monitor to a G-Sync monitor with both an NVIDIA-made demo and the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot. You can watch a video I recorded of the whole thing, but keep in mind that the video is impacted by the limitations of my camera. While you`ll be able to notice some clear differences during certain points of the demo, particularly when rotation is enabled on the pendulum demo, the difference was even more striking in person."

AMD RADEON R9 270X Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Oct 24 2013 | 3:45P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We can confirm the R9 270X is not a `crippled HD7950` as reported by some sources nor does it have a Tahiti LE core at its heart. It uses a redesigned Pitcairn core complete with 1280 shaders, a 256-bit memory controller with 2GB to 4GB of GDDR5 at its helm. Clockspeeds will inevitably vary between manufacturers but the reference design is clocked to a healthy 1050MHz and a memory clockspeed of 5600MHz (effective)."

S2 Innovation AXIOM Pro Dust-Proof Midi Tower
     Thu, Oct 24 2013 | 1:11P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Innovation is not something we see very often in the PC market lately and that goes double when we`re talking about PC cases since although manufacturers tend to equip them with features a lot more than in the past still none of those features is really something we haven`t seen before. This is perhaps one of the area that new manufacturers surpass the really well-known ones since they need the extra push in order to establish themselves in the market and what better way to do that than to answer the requests/recommendations of consumers and hope for the best? S2 Innovation is a brand new manufacturer based in Korea which i have to admit i knew nothing about up until 3 months ago when we first inquired about their brand new AXIOM Pro Midi Tower PC Case which is quite interesting since it incorporates a very innovative filtration intake system along with several other useful features. Well roughly 2 months later it found its way onto our photo bench and today we can finally unveil our review."

Synology DS213j Home to Small Office 2-bay NAS Review @ Madshrimps
     Thu, Oct 24 2013 | 11:20A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Synology has NASes available for all price ranges. In this review we will look upon one of their offering aimed at budget conscious people, with two internal bays for 3.5 drives (for 2.5 we need to purchase an optional adapter), which also features a single-core 1.2Ghz processor along with 512MB of RAM and runs the latest version of DSM."

Cougar CMX V3 Series 850 W @ techPowerUp
     Thu, Oct 24 2013 | 11:08A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cougar revamped their CMX series, and today, we take a close look at the CMX 850 W unit slotting in behind the 1 kW and 1.2 kW models of the series. It is Bronze certified, but achieves, according to Cougar, up to 89% efficiency, which is noteworthy for a unit of the bronze efficiency class."

SilverStone ML05 - The Mini-ITX HTPC benchmark Review @ Ocaholic
     Thu, Oct 24 2013 | 9:46A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Milo ML05, SilverStone is offering a Mini-ITX enclosure targeting enthusiasts seeking for a small but yet powerful Home Theater PC. Despite the small form factor, the case can still house up to three fans, up to six 2.5 drives and is very affordable. HTPC cases have been quite expensive traditionally but SilverStone`s ML05 is wide available at a price as low as 37 Euros. Therefore we are curious to see if the quality is still au rendez-vous and what can be done with such a case."

Cooler Master HAF Stacker 935 Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Thu, Oct 24 2013 | 9:29A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we are taking a look at a rather interesting case from Cooler Master. It is their HAF Stacker 935. What makes this case so interesting is that it is actually two cases in one. You have the HAF Stacker 925 (main compartment) which can house E-ATX, ATX and Micro-ATX motherboards. Then there is the HAF Stacker 915F which can house a Mini-ITX system or external watercooling. What is really cool about these cases is that they are stackable, hence the name HAF stacker. So with the 935 you are able to stack the 915 on the top or on the bottom of the main compartment to create the ultimate system. Cooler Master has designed these cases so you are able to route cables between the two as well. Read on as we take a look..."

Asus Matrix R9 280X Platinum @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Oct 24 2013 | 9:29A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When I spoke about the AMD launch of its new R9 cards, I mentioned that most of the cards are rebadged versions of the 7000 Series cards. That doesnt mean manufactures couldnt go out of their way to improve on the designs themselves. Asus attempted this with their flagship R9 280X called the Matrix R9 280X Platinum. The Matrix itself brings a lot of amazing features, but the platinum edition is handpicked and equipped with a higher overclock to go with it all. Today Im going to take a close look at the card to see what sets it apart from the rest of the R9 280Xs on the market."

Patriot SuperSonic Magnum 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive
     Thu, Oct 24 2013 | 9:18A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Have you ever had the feeling that no matter how much available space you carry around with you it`s just never enough when the time comes to actually put it to good use? Well to be entirely honest i have felt that quite a few times in my life but what`s really even more annoying is to have plenty of available storage space with you only to find out that there`s not enough speed to make use of it all in the time window that you have. The introduction of USB 3.0 a few years back was a step towards the right direction since in theory it`s up to 10 times faster than the older USB 2.0 but to date with the exception of portable SSDs there aren`t really many storage related media that come even close to its possible data transfer speeds and that includes the majority of USB 3.0 compatible flash drives in the market. Well Patriot Memory wants to change or at least improve on that and so their latest SuperSonic Magnum USB 3.0 Flash Drive line doesn`t only offer capacities up to 256GB but it`s also pretty much as fast as it gets (at least currently)."

MyDigitalSSD 128GB mSATA SuperCache 2 Caching SSD Review
     Thu, Oct 24 2013 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today’s review is of MyDigitalSSD’s SuperCache 2 mSATA 128GB SSD, and the FNet HybriDisk caching software. A license key for the HybriDisk software is included with the purchase of the SuperCache 2. How does a caching SSD work? It works in conjunction with a hard drive disk (HDD) to create what the operating system sees as a single, combined storage partition. A caching SSD utilizes specialized software to determine what programs, data, and/or files that the user accesses most frequently. This “hot” data will be held in a dedicated “caching” partition on the SSD for much quicker access when called for. Less frequently requested data will still reside on the HDD, until such time as it becomes frequently accessed enough to be moved to the SSD cache. What is stored on the SSD cache is dynamic, and changes over time based on actual usage.

ASUS talks Rampage IV Black Edition
     Thu, Oct 24 2013 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The advance of tablets and CPUs with powerful integrated graphics has had an impact on the entry-level segment. The sales of entry-level graphics cards have been going down for a while now. The high-end segment is going strong, however, the market for graphics cards $ 200 and over has increased over the past year, and we expect the increase to continue in 2014.”

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
