Mad Catz Cyborg F.R.E.Q. 5 Gaming Headset @ Benchmark Reviews
     Sat, Jun 15 2013 | 8:49P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Mad Catz is continuing to broaden their Cyborg hardware line-up and up next is the Cyborg FREQ 5 stereo gaming headset. It supports both PC and devices so it`s not just your stay-at-home gaming headset. It includes both a USB and 3.5mm analog connection. Naturally the USB connection unlocks additional microphone/audio adjustment capabilities. The Mad Catz FREQ 5 comes with 50 drivers for deep bass and crisp highs. It is the younger brother of Mad Catz`s FREQ 7, which delivers surround sound at a slightly higher price range. Benchmark Reviews will be taking a look at how this stereo headset performs among its numerous competitors."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 Review - GK104 Speed Bump
     Sat, Jun 15 2013 | 12:14P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It should come as no surprise that compared to the year-old GeForce GTX 680 2GB graphics cards, the new GTX 770 2GB is just a bit faster in all of our tests. That variance can spike a bit on certain games that take more advantage of the additional memory bandwidth provided by the 7.0 Gbps memory system but otherwise you could easily overclock just about any GTX 680 on the market to get the same results we are seeing for the GTX 770 here."

Intel Core i7 4770K Haswell Benchmarks On Ubuntu Linux
     Sat, Jun 15 2013 | 7:50A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This past weekend I shared the first experiences of running Intel`s new Haswell CPU on Linux. While Intel Haswell is a beast and brings many new features and innovations to the new Core CPUs succeeding Ivy Bridge, there were a few shortcomings with the initial Linux support. It still appears that the Core i7 4770K is still being finicky at times for both the processor and graphics, but in this article are the first benchmarks. Up today are benchmarks of the Intel Core i7 4770K when running Ubuntu 13.04 with the Linux 3.10 kernel."

MSI Z87 MPOWER MAX Motherboard Review @ HiTech Legion

Based on the GK104 GPU used on cards such as GTX 680 we have three factory overclocked versions of the GTX 770 on our test bench and all have their own custom design. We`ll be putting them through a selection of real world tests against overclocked 680 and 7970 cards (as well as GTX 780) to see how they do in titles like Crysis 3, Metro: Last Light and Grid 2."

Seidio Active Case Combo for HTC One Review @ TestFreaks
     Fri, Jun 14 2013 | 8:21A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The HTC One is a remarkable phone, its a nicely made device, just gorgeous really, but its thin and I think its rather fragile. I know I wouldnt want to drop it from any height at all without fear of damage. Such a nice looking device as the HTC One needs to be protected, the phone just looks very nice and it would be a shame for anything to damage those great looks so this is certainly one phone that needs a rugged and durable case to protect it to keep it looking so good. One such case is what I have for review today from Seidio, the case is the Active and what I have is actually the combination set which actually includes the case and a handy holster so it will always be handy right on your hip. The case itself is two parts, an inner soft rubber layer and an outer hard plastic layer which together provide excellent protection for the phone inside. The case also has a built-in metal kickstand so you can set the phone up and view it easily and comfortably. The second part of the set is the holster which is made from hard plastic, it features a spring lock to hold the phone in place no matter what youre doing. The case does have one small flaw though, read on to learn more. "

Infortrend EonNAS Pro 510 Review @ TechwareLabs

Posted by: STAFF
The EonNAS Pro series is comprised of Infortrends SOHO/SMB solutions and they come in 2, 5, or 8 drive variants. For the most part, all of their current x10 models come with 2GB of memory and are powered by an Intel Atom Dual-Core 2.13Ghz Processor. They do have a couple variants of the EonNAS Pro 850 which ramp up the installed memory to 8GB of memory and the processor to an Intel Core i3 Dual Core 3.3Ghz chip. In todays review, we will be taking a look at the EonNAS Pro 510 specifically, which Infortrend sent to us with 4 x 1TB drives installed."

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.
