HGST Travelstar 7K1000 1TB SATA III HDD
     Mon, Sep 30 2013 | 1:17P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since current technology focuses a lot in shrinking everything it comes as little surprise to see that most storage media manufacturers nowadays choose to favor the developing of 1.8 and 2.5 media over the far more popular and widely distributed 3.5 ones. This certainly explains the why although 3 years ago the 2.5 HDD with the highest capacity was 750GB (highest capacity 3.5 has 3TB) just 1 year ago we breached the 2TB barrier (highest capacity 3.5 was and still is 4TB) and just a few months ago we also witnessed the appearance of 2TB 2.5 SSDs so it`s really only a matter of time before we see 2.5/3TB 2.5 HDDs/SSDs in the market. That being said most people i know still use 500GB 2.5 drives both in their laptops and for their portable needs but since many of them are starting to experience the limitations of just having 500GB we decided to focus a bit on some of the latest 2.5 hard disk drives to hit the market and we will start by testing the latest Travelstar 7K1000 1TB 2.5 SATA III model by HGST."

Read the F1 2013 (PC) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Mon, Sep 30 2013 | 10:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Read the F1 2013 (PC) Review @ HardwareHeaven.com A couple of weeks ago we got our first real taste of Codemasters F1 2013 in its preview form and found it to be an interesting evolution of the franchise. Now with the review build in our hands we are able to give our opinions on the latest instalment. This time though, there are two editions of the game, not in the same way that other developers may publish with a deluxe fancy edition with random extras. No, this is all about content and how much the end user loves classic F1."

Gigabyte Z87X-D3G LGA1150 Motherboard Review @ OCIA.net
     Sun, Sep 29 2013 | 6:21P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
?With Intel`s 7-series chipset a little over a year old, the latest 8-series offers only a few minor improvements. There`s some power savings to be had, along with more built-in ports for USB 3.0 and 6Gb/s SATA. Other than that, there`s not much to distinguish from the previous 1155 socket generation. The motherboard we have for review today comes to us from Gigabyte in the form of their Z87X-D3H. They offer no less than fifteen different Z87 based chipset motherboards, everything from mini-ITX boards with onboard Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, to their top-of-the-line G1 Sniper gaming motherboards, and the D3H falls somewhere in the middle.?"

Frame Rating: Eyefinity vs Surround in Single and Multi-GPU Configurations
     Sun, Sep 29 2013 | 9:45A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As I mentioned on a previous page, AMD, as they have previously stated, is committed to fixing these CrossFire + Eyefinity problems for the upcoming generation of products and the current Radeon HD 7000-series of cards. Though much of the discussion is still going to be embargoed until further notice I have renewed confidence that the substantial Frame Rating issues with these configurations will be addressed, I just dont know exactly when. For gamers that have already invested in this ecosystem of multi-display, multi-GPU hardware that answer isnt going to appease them but it does make this information presented today easier to accept."

ASUS GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU Mini OC Review @ Ocaholic
     Sat, Sep 28 2013 | 10:26A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the DirectCU Mini, ASUS has the smallest GeForce GTX 760 on the market to target MiniITX enthusiasts. The concept first introduced with the GeForce GTX 670 Mini seems to have had its success since the manufacturer made a second card of the kind. However, we hope ASUS improved the two major downsides the Mini first of its name had, known as price and noise levels. Let`s see!"
