Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We review the Antec 850 HCP Platinum power supply. The HCP series have received an upgrade (High Current Pro) and this 850W model WAS their gold model but is replaced with this version, Platinum certified, meaning the PSU can pimp and show off its most efficient power supply label available in this bizz.

Rosewill RSCM-12003 Outdoor Security
     Sun, Aug 11 2013 | 9:01A | Imaging | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Security cameras come in all shapes and sizes, with wired and wireless connections, and occasionally come with features such as pan, tilt, zoom, or infrared night vision. Consequently, security cameras also span the gamut in terms of pricing, with models costing anywhere from twenty dollars to several thousands. Featuring an IP66 hardened outdoor waterproof enclosure, the Rosewill RSCM-12003 IR Outdoor Bullet Camera kit is ideal for general-purpose outdoor or indoor wired security systems, and perfectly compliments Rosewill’s own RSVA-11001 or RSVA-12001 all-in-one DVR kits. Comprised of Sony’s 1/3? CCD sensor inside, the RCMR-13CCDIR camera unit produces 540 lines of resolution. In this article Benchmark Reviews inspects the Rosewill RSCM-12003 outdoor security camera kit, and weighs in on its features.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tegra 4 Gaming Device Review
     Sat, Aug 10 2013 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA made quite a splash at this year's Consumer Electronics Show when they first unveiled their SHIELD portable gaming device. If you missed the original announcement, or the myriad of related posts we've put up about the device since then, SHIELD is a Tegra 4-based portable gaming machine that's packing a 5-inch multi-touch screen, a console-grade game controller, and an unmolested version of Android Jelly Bean. In some respects NVIDIA's SHIELD is simply a small Android tablet with a kick-ass game controller attached. But of course, NVIDIA has injected some of their own special sauce into SHIELD and is leveraging the huge install base of GeForce GTX graphics cards in many of today's gaming PC as well, to enable some cool features on SHIELD that you won't find anywhere else...

     Sat, Aug 10 2013 | 2:17P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With their GeForce GTX 770 Lightning, MSI has another super weapon in it`s back pack, when it comes to extra powerful graphics cards. Usually the Lightning cards are the cream of the crop and it`s hard for any other manufacturer to keep up with MSI, when it comes to high-end VGA`s. The question that remains then, what will the GTX 770 Lightning be like? Will it raise the bar once more or is MSI going to loose ground to the competition?"

NVIDIAs Linux Driver On Ubuntu Is Very Competitive With Windows 8
     Sat, Aug 10 2013 | 12:20P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In recent days on Phoronix I have published benchmarks showing Windows 8 beating Ubuntu Linux for Intel Haswell performance and the Radeon Gallium3D driver losing to AMD Catalyst Legacy on Windows. As some good news for NVIDIA Linux users, the performance on Ubuntu Linux can beat out Microsoft Windows 8 on modern GPUs. However, the strong Linux performance can only be found if using the closed-source NVIDIA driver and not the open-source Nouveau alternative."
