Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 SLI

GeForce GTX 760 Review: Mainstream Performance
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 5:40P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia has continued to roll out the GeForce 700 series this week with the GTX 760 -- the generation's first truly mainstream product, with pricing well under that of the GTX Titan, 780 and even the 770, which at $400 still costs more than the average gamer is willing to spend. In other words, the GTX 760 has the potential to be today's most relevant option for someone who needs a new graphics card. Previous 700 series cards have been heavy hitters, with the GTX 770 packing about as much muscle as the GTX 680 for about $100 less. Assuming Nvidia doesn't throw us a curve ball, we expect the GTX 760 to deliver performance comparable to that of the HD 7950 with a price tag that's closer to HD 7870s -- a situation that would invariably benefit anyone shopping for a mid-range GPU.

Gigabyte GTX 760 OC Windforce
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 5:40P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA tweaks and repackages the GK104 GPU previously seen in the GeForce GTX 600 series cards for their new GTX 760 on the test bench today. Its implementation in the GTX 760 is slightly trimmer with 1152 CUDA cores, but the new card does feature an updated GPU Boost 2.0 and Adaptive Tempurature controller. With a 980MHz base core clock (1033MHz boost) and 2GB GDDR5 memory clocked at 1502MHz (6008MHz effective) on a 256-bit memory interface, the GTX 760 was designed to replace the GTX 660 Ti and should challenge AMD's Radeon HD 7950. Hit our review to see how the new $299.99 card stacks against the likes of AMD's HD 7970.

Gigabyte GTX 760 OC Video Card Review
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 5:40P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I always opt for a factory overclocked card when the option is available. You get a nice boost in performance out of the box coupled with improved components. The Windforce 3X is exactly the type of upgrade you can feel good about spending a few dollars on.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 review
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 5:39P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's been a busy month for Nvidia. On May 23 the GeForce GTX 780 was launched, a GTX Titan-based card that replaced the GTX 680. On May 30 the GeForce GTX 770 followed, a tuned GTX 680 that replaced the GTX 670. Today it's time for the GeForce GTX 760. It's based on the GTX 670, but it's positioned to replace the € 240 GeForce GTX 660 Ti.

Whats Wrong with the PlayStation Vita? @ TestFreaks
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 4:53P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The PlayStation Vita is a great device for portable gaming but its not perfect by any means. I got mine at launch and in that time Ive used it quite a bit and Ive noticed many things both good and bad. Dont get me wrong, I like the PS Vita, but there are some things that I dont care for. So this started out as sort of a top ten list, a list of things that arent that great about the PS Vita. These are things that Ive noticed in my time with it, and its a lot more than ten sadly. So are obvious, some arent, some are big and some are small, some people might find them a reason not to buy one, and some people might not care. We all know nothing is perfect though, most every device and gadget sounds much better in reviews and promotional material than it does when you actually get it in your hands. So read on to see what I found or think is wrong with the PS Vita.. "

Intel Core i7-4770K Review: Haswell Has Landed
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you've been hanging around these parts and are like most self-respecting geeks, you've likely been feeling the build-up of Haswell for quite some time. Intel has disclosed lots of information on their latest processor technologies, from its 22nm 3D Tri-Gate transistors, to its beefed-up integrated graphics core. Sure, there's marketing hype and press releases but at some point you've got to have execution -- and today is all about execution for Intel. Intel is officially launching Haswell today, their 4th Generation Core processor technology for the desktop market, with a follow-on release of dual core and mobile Haswell offerings coming up quickly on June 3rd. Haswell marks a number of firsts for Intel, including leading-edge technologies like on-chip voltage regulators, eDRAM, and their first graphics engine that fully supports the DX11.1 specification and OpenGL 4.0. With these new features alone, Haswell is primed to offer significant performance and feature enhancements, the likes of which should appeal first and foremost to mainstream consumers; but there's also plenty brought to the table for the performance enthusiast here as well.

Haswell has USB 3.0 issues with 14 out of 22 tested USB drives
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 4:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in March we reported on a USB 3.0 problem with the new 8 series chipset used on motherboards for desktop Haswell processors, and it turns out that this is indeed the case. We can confirm this after 14 out of 22 USB 3.0 drives we tested failed to stay connected when a Haswell system woke up from standby. You can read all about the test in our round-up of 33 Haswell motherboards.

Posted by: STAFF
Since fourth generation Intel Core processors require a different socket, we tested a large number of new Haswell-compatible motherboards. We tested everything from compact boards, very basic boards all the way up to the most high-end ATX motherboards for overclockers and gamers. The new generation has some interesting new features such as Thunderbolt and high-quality integrated audio, and the BIOSes from the different brands have received some major updates as well.

Corsair Carbide Air 540 ATX Cube Case Review @ Pro-Clockers
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 1:15P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This design we are talking about is something we have only really seen in very large and expensive cases. But in the case of the Carbide Air 540, it is much smaller and having many of the same features you would see in a typical enthusiast case. Besides the design, Corsair is marketing the Carbide Air 540 as the perfect case to get good airflow to all your components like the GPU, CPU, memory and motherboard."

We recently reviewed one of the fast Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme 256 GB SSD, but we wanted it faster again. Said and done, because today we test two of these fast Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme 256 GB SSDs. We build a hardware RAID0 striping with two of these SSDs and compare their performance with a software RAID 0, with one single Plextor M5 Pro Xtreme 256 GB SSD and with two Crucial m4 SSDs in RAID 0.

7-Way 550-600 Watt Power Supply Roundup Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 9:25A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is natural for an enthusiast to be dazzled by monsters such as the Corsair AX1200i and the Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 1500W; however, even the majority of the enthusiasts would not actually purchase such a beast. It is (or should be) common knowledge that even a very good gaming system does not demand more than 300W-350W and thus, as power supplies are being designed to optimally perform at about 50% capacity, 550W-600W units are plenty for the vast majority of gamers and common users. It is only with multiple video cards, large raid arrays and other specialized designs that power requirements may increase substantially. Knowing that and realizing the need to offer our readers insight on products which truly are of interest to them, today we bring you a roundup review of seven quality 550W-600W power supplies..."
