Thecus N5550 NAS Server
     Fri, Feb 28 2014 | 1:04P | Servers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this month i finished the entire Mass Effect trilogy for the 3rd time (leaving out the Wing Commander universe Mass Effect is my second most favorite one) and regardless of how much i try i still can`t figure out why Bioware decided to pull the plug on Shepard and all the characters we all got to know during the course of the entire game (the perfect red ending still gives me hope that they will reconsider). Anyways the reason i mentioned this is because while i was discussing about it through Skype with several online acquaintances roughly a week ago i mentioned that we were currently testing 3 NAS Servers and to my surprise only one of them had heard about such devices. Now i do realize that most consumers are not aware of NAS servers since in all likelihood they will never have to use one but it`s a whole different story when we`re talking about serious games and enthusiasts ."

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition @ ocaholic
     Fri, Feb 28 2014 | 9:20A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition Samsung have made a high-end tablet, that features the latest and greates in almost any aspect. In case of the SoC there is a Qualcomm Snapdragon quadcore with Krait 400 CPU, that clocks at 2.3 GHz and in case of the GPU we finde an Adreno 330 chip. Other than that there is 2560 x 1600 pixel display with 299 ppi pixel density and the back of the tablet has actually been covered with leather, which give this product a classy touch. So far we`re rather curious if all these number together leave a lasting impression or if it`s just yet another expensive piece of hardware."

Posted by: STAFF
As more mobile devices come online, there needs to be alternative ways to get data on and off the various tablets, computers and smartphones. Putting data online in a cloud is one way, however that uses precious mobile data plans. If you are traveling with several people each with their own device using cellular data plans can get costly.

The NVIDIA GTX 750 Ti Maxwell Continues Running Great On Linux
     Fri, Feb 28 2014 | 9:20A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back on Tuesday I delivered a launch-day review of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti on Linux. This first graphics card built on NVIDIA`s new Maxwell architecture has been running fantastic under Linux for being a mid-range graphics card. The GM107 GPU core found on the GTX 750 Ti is incredibly power efficient, as was shown in numerous articles on launch-day. For those curious more about the GeForce GTX 750 Ti Linux performance, here are some more OpenCL and OpenGL performance results."

EVGA Z87 Stinger (Intel LGA 1150) @ techPowerUp
     Fri, Feb 28 2014 | 9:07A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The intended base of any EVGA Hadron build, the Z87 Stinger is EVGA`s answer to a high-end mITX OC solution. Built with a focus on features and overclocking, as with EVGA`s high-end videocards and PSUs, the EVGA Z87 Stinger makes its mark, but does it sting like a bee, or is it only as annoying as a fly?"

Powercolor Radeon R9-290X Review @ Bjorn3D
     Fri, Feb 28 2014 | 8:31A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Powercolor has been a long time AMD partner and like the Devil card we looked at recently they have made a name for themselves with man special edition including high end liquid cooled cards. Today I have their OC version of the 290X which has a small bump to the boost clock of the card which should net us some nice performance. "

NVIDIA Coin Mining Performance Increases with Maxwell and GTX 750 Ti
     Thu, Feb 27 2014 | 5:08P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As you can see, by cramming more of the lower end but impressive GTX 750 Ti`s into a single machine you can create a similar performing machine for less money than the AMD alternative, which is contrary to all the advice given about coin mining up to this initial release of Maxwell. In addition, performance of the Maxwell-based machine should only improve as the Maxwell kernel for cudaMiner is developed further, whereas OpenCL performance for AMD mining has likely been as optimized as we will ever see it."

NVIDIA GeForce Power Efficiency: From The 6600GT To The GTX 750 Ti
     Thu, Feb 27 2014 | 5:08P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When NVIDIA was doing their press briefings for their new Maxwell architecture they frequently talked up its power efficiency and how the power efficiency is four times greater than where it was four years ago with Fermi... But how is Maxwell and NVIDIA`s power efficiency compared to hardware from ten years ago? In this article we have done fresh benchmarks -- with power consumption, thermal, and performance-per-Watt measurements -- of NVIDIA`s mid-range graphics cards from the week-old GeForce GTX 750 Ti to as far back as the GeForce 6600GT (NV43) graphics card from 2004."

NZXT H440 Mid-Tower Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Feb 27 2014 | 5:08P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXT really wanted to make a bold statement with their upcoming mid-tower H440 chassis.  Outside of the minimalistic design, they minimized ? or should I say eliminated ? something that many of us have come accustom to:  5.25? drive bays.  This means no more optical drives in NZXT?s eyes with this one!  Can you imagine a desktop PC without an optical drive?  I?m sure there are plenty of people out there that cannot, but I most certainly can. Read on to learn more about this new chassis!"

NZXT H440 Mid-Tower Case Review @HiTech Legion
     Thu, Feb 27 2014 | 5:08P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NZXT H440 is a new case by NZXT that comes in a really sharp white with black accents and a super sexy black with red accents. The white H440 by NZXT has a main chassis of steel, all painted white, but have all of the accents done in a sharp black plastic with black steel mesh for ventilation. The H440 measures 220mm x 510mm x 475.3mm and is a more compact mid-tower than some others. The H440 supports mITX, mATX and ATX motherboards, has seven PCI expansion slots, and weighs only 9.75kg."

Patriot Viper 3 Series Black Mamba PC3-19200 16GB (2x8GB) Review
     Thu, Feb 27 2014 | 5:08P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hynix shutdowns and high demands have RAM prices through the roof right now. It`s absurd to even fathom the fact that even lower end packages require at least $70 for 8GB of some off-branded, no-name, slow sticks. Honestly for the amount (16GB) and the speed (2400MHz), it`s really a small premium for solid quality sticks. They start out at good clock rates and seem to only want to clock up from there. Even if not so many things depend on memory speeds anymore, it`s nice to pick up every bit of performance you can. Without paying a gross amount more, these sticks are really worth it in the long run. I wouldn`t see replacing them in any near term unless, of course, you do a complete full upgrade to the DDR4 world when it rolls around. These sticks are definitely in it for the long run whether you overclock or not."

Today we`re having a close look at the differences between the Radeon HD 6870 and the R9 270X."
