NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost SLI @ techPowerUp
     Sun, Apr 07 2013 | 4:20P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost just released last week, at amazing pricing, we were curious how two of these cards in SLI handle our test suite of 17 games. Scaling worked very well and performance easily matched GTX 680 and HD 7970 GHz Edition, with much better price/performance."

Satechi 10-Port USB 3.0 Hub UH3-10P Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Apr 07 2013 | 4:01P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Satechi 10-Port USB 3.0 Hub measures in at 8.69 x 1.75 x 1.06 and is very light at just 4.125 ounces. The hub has three sets of three SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports, and each set of ports can be independently controlled by a power switch on the left side hub. When the ports are switched on, they`re lit up blue. You might notice that there are just nine USB 3.0 ports, but that is because there is a charge only USB 3.0 port at the end of the unit..."

Slappa Black Rubber Sole Netbook or Tablet Case Review @ TestFreaks
     Sun, Apr 07 2013 | 4:01P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today for review Ive got a quick one for you of a decent tablet or netbook case from Slappa called the Rubber Sole. The case is made of a rubberized material that repels water so what you do decide to put inside will be protected from the elements. The Rubber Sole is padded for protection as well, and you can fit a tablet or netbook up to ten inches in size inside of the case. There is a single pocket on the outside of the case in case you need to take some papers or cables with you. All in all its not a bad case. Read on."

History of the GPU, Part 2: 3Dfx Voodoo, the game-changer
     Sun, Apr 07 2013 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Launched on November 1996, 3Dfx's Voodoo graphics consisted of a 3D-only card that required a VGA cable pass-through from a separate 2D card to the Voodoo, which then connected to the display. The cards were sold by a large number of companies. Orchid Technologies was first to market with the $299 Orchid Righteous 3D, a board noted for having mechanical relays that “clicked” when the chipset was in use. Later revisions utilized solid-state relays in line with the rest of the vendors. The card was followed by Diamond Multimedia’s Monster 3D, Colormaster’s Voodoo Mania, the Canopus Pure3D, Quantum3D, Miro Hiscore, Skywell (Magic3D), and the 2theMAX Fantasy FX Power 3D. Voodoo Graphics revolutionized personal computer graphics nearly overnight and rendered many other designs obsolete, including a vast swathe of 2D-only graphics producers. The 3D landscape in 1996 favoured S3 with around 50% of the market. That was to change soon, however. It was estimated that 3Dfx accounted for 80-85% of the 3D accelerator market during the heyday of Voodoo’s reign.

Azza Silentium 920 Case Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Sun, Apr 07 2013 | 3:50P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Azza Silentium 920 is a case designed with silence in mind. The Azza Silentium 920 has a steel body and a fully painted interior that is available in both black and white coats. Thick, sound-dampening material line up both extruded side panels as well as the top and bottom floors of the Silentium 920 internally, minimizing noise generated by the installed components. Tall CPU air coolers as well as long video cards such as the HD6990 are supported inside the Silentium 920, cooled by a pair of 120mm fans at the front intake and rear exhaust. All 3.5 and 5.25 drive mounting is tool-less, requiring little effort in part of the user when it comes to installation. For connectivity, the Silentium 920`s front panel has a single USB 3.0 port, a single USB 2.0 port as well as audio jacks for a headphone and a microphone.///"

Roxio Game Capture HD Pro @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Apr 07 2013 | 9:37A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When I reviewed the Aver Media Game Capture HD late last year there were a couple of things I felt were missing. The first was the ability to record HDMI gameplay footage, and the second was the ability to stream any gameplay. Roxio has sent us one of their new capture boxes. The Game Capture HD Pro claims to offer many of the same features of the Aver Media card with the added bonus of being able to do HDMI gameplay and live stream all of your gameplay footage with the click of a button. Lets take a look at the box and compare its features to that of the other."
