Radeon R9 290X vs. Radeon R9 280X CrossFire @ ocaholic
     Sat, Jun 07 2014 | 10:56A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Comparisons of two mid-range (roughly) graphics cards with one high-end VGA are almost always good for some really interesting results. Today we`re having a look at what two AMD Radeon R9 280X graphics cards can do against one Radeon R9 290X. If you keep in mind, that the two R9 280X cards are just a little more expensive than one R9 290X then things could be quite interesting"

Philips Brilliance 239C4QHWAB Miracast-enabled monitor - review at Bjorn3d.com
     Sat, Jun 07 2014 | 10:54A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the rise of mobile devices the need to be able to hook them up to a screen has increased. While both Apple TV and to some extend Google Chromecast offers ways to mirror the screen on supported devices or at least stream some content they both requier extra hardware. There is however another solution: Miracast. Most Android devices and now also Windows 8.1 support Miracast meaning that you should be able to mirror the screen from many devices. To do that you still need a Miracast-enabled screen and this is where the monitor we are reviewing today comes in. The Philips Brilliance 239C4QHWAB is a 23 inch IPS-monitor with full Miracast support."

GDC14: AMD RapidFire and Cloud Gaming
     Sat, Jun 07 2014 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the 2014 Game Developers Conference (GDC14) this morning, AMD revealed full-functional working demonstrations of their AMD RapidFire Graphics API technology harnessing the power of Cloud-based streaming 3D applications. A bare-bones system with no software installed located Crysis 3 on a Cloud gaming server, and within moments the player was earning frags (actually, he was desperately trying). On the surface this concept may not sound terribly interesting, but it stands to disrupt how we obtain and play video games and graphical design software. For desktop and mobile users software no longer is downloaded or installed; games and applications are essentially a click away.

Crucial MX100 Solid State Drive Review
     Fri, Jun 06 2014 | 4:55P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Micron Technology, the company behind the Crucial brand, has delivered many first?s to the computer industry. Primary among them are advancements in the solid state storage sector. Crucial delivered excellent price value when they launched the M225 SSD series back in 2009, then followed up with the fastest available SSD when they launched the SATA 6 Gb/s Crucial C300 back in 2010. Just last year they broke the price barrier for 1TB SSDs, then returned in early 2014 to combine all the best attributes of their M550 series. Now featuring Micron?s most affordable 16nm NAND flash components, the Crucial MX100 delivers high-end performance to value-driven mainstream users. Benchmark Reviews tests this solid state drive against the fastest SSDs available."

AMD Kaveri Mobile APU Preview - FX-7600P with Radeon R7 Graphics @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Jun 06 2014 | 11:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year AMD launched their Kaveri APUs for desktops and now they are ready to release Kaveri APUs for mobile platforms. AMD?s Kaveri series of APUs feature enhanced Streamroller x86 cores and the latest in graphics cores thanks to the inclusion of Graphics Core Next (GCN) with Mantle and TrueAudio technology support. The transition from desktop to mobile didn?t change much as the mobile variants of Kaveri share the same basic features and really just differ in clock speeds and voltages due to their lower mobile power envelopes.The flagship AMD Kaveri APU is called the FX-7600P and it will ship with 12 Compute Cores (4 Steamroller x86 CPU cores and 8 GCN GPU cores)."

OCZ Vertex 460 240GB Review
     Fri, Jun 06 2014 | 10:54A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As far as performance is concerned, OCZ delivers. Performance and brand reliability are major defining factors in many hardware related purchases, and performance is covered pretty well with this drive, while reliability is provided with a nice three-year warranty just to be safe. Over those three years, it is rated for 20GB/day reads and writes; a level most of us will not hit. As a 7mm form factor drive, the OCZ Vertex 460 can be used not only in desktop applications, but also in many of the slim form factor ultrabooks or notebooks. The form factor of the drive allows it to easily replace standard hard drives in portables for improved boot and application load times, as well as extending battery usefulness per charge."

Crucial MX100 2.5 SSD Full Review - 16nm Flash Makes an Appearance
     Thu, Jun 05 2014 | 4:55P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Given the MX100 was to be a budget SSD primarily meant to target the upgrade market, it was refreshing to see such strong performance from 16nm flash. Even better was the extremely competitive launch pricing. The 512GB capacity delivers excellent performance at less than $0.50/GB. Lower capacities also offer good read performance, but write speeds drop sharply as you notch down on the capacity. The 128GB model seems a bit out of place here, as its cost/GB is 150% of the other two capacities, its write speeds are limited to 150MB/sec, and it uses the previous 20nm flash. Those oddities aside, the Crucial MX100 offers competitive performance at an extremely competitive price point, especially for budget minded users in need of a larger capacity SSD."
