Dyconn Condor DE743A-S Triple LCD Monitor Stand
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 12:01P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“With the popularity of multi-monitor gaming and workstations in recent years, sometimes looking for the right solution to mount your display(s) can become a daunting task. While 3 monitors on your desk can work, it still takes up a lot of real estate; however, the purpose of multi-monitor stands is to eliminate this problem. It’s a solution which offers one mount to hold all three displays and free up valuable desktop space for your other accessories. When it comes to shopping for triple LCD mounts their are very few options available and most of them come with high cost. Today we are going to be looking at a Dyconn Condor DE743A-S Triple LCD Monitor Stand that doesn’t break the bank, but offers some great versatility.”

NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 780
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“You’re only as good as your last success, and today marks the highly anticipated launch of Nvidia’s latest, the GeForce GTX 780. We, like many others, expect big things from “Kepler 2.0?. But gaming horsepower is only part of the equation these days; lower power consumption and temperatures also tell the tale, and Nvidia is promising improvements for these as well. Fine and good, but we’re a demanding bunch and we want more. And to address that, Nvidia is introducing more GeForce Experience features such as Shadowplay, as well as Adaptive Temperature Control, and not to mention an updated GPU Boost 2.0. So, is the GeForce GTX 780 fast? Hellya. Does it overclock like a beast? Hellya. There’s a boatload of information to cover here, so let’s get to it.”

Enermax Triathlor FC 550W Power Supply Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 11:09A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enermax is a brand whose strong product is their power supplies, especially when it comes to the high-end spectrum. Their Platimax and MAXREVO units are some of the best out there. But these units are not cheap in terms of cost. Enermax knows not everyone has a ton of cash to throw at a new power supply so they have created the Triathlor series of power supplies. There are actually the Triathlor and Triathlor FC units. The Triathlor units are lower wattage and non-modular and the Triathlor FC units are higher wattage and are modular. Today we are checking out the Triathlor FC 550W unit which is 80PLUS Bronze certified and offers quiet operation."

EXCLUSIVE: LSI SandForce Next Gen SSD Controller With 1800MB/s Speeds Discovered at Computex
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 11:09A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The SSD world has just taken a massive step forward with the unintended displaying of LSI SandForce next generation flash storage processor, Codenamed GRIFFIN, at Computex this week. Where other websites were noticing the incredible 1.6TB capacity of this SSD, The SSD Review observed that it is a single chip design, LSI SandForce driven, and capable of speeds of 1800MB/s read and write with 200,000 IOPS, all in a typical notebook 2.5design! Our later attempts to have the story refuted as a mistake in specifications met with negative results and this discovery indeed seems to be 100% authentic. Such performance has guaranteed once again that the original SandForce team, alongside with LSI, has once again made an enormous technological jump in the world of SSDs!"

Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 Case Review @ Pro-Clockers (Correction)
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 11:09A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Once we got the call from John at Fractal Design about starting a review partnership, one of the first things I did was run over to their website and took a look at their entire lineup. Next was a big fat YES, we would love to review some Fractal Design gear. Take a look at their products yourself. You will see nothing but style, sleekness, classy and simplistic cases. So, jumping into the first product, we will bring to you will be the new Arc Midi R2. This particular case is an improvement over of an older R2 case or a revision it. The mid tower is geared for individuals looking for style on the outside but able to build the essence of a gamer rig on the inside. Designed with unparalleled cooling, space and various other aspects, we have a feeling that the Arc Midi could be one of the best cases out today."

NVIDIA GTX 760 SLI Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 10:04A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GTX 760, like the GTX770 has some inherited components from the overflowing NVIDIA parts bin, namely the GK104 core codenamed Kepler. Kepler astounded us all with its tremendous power to performance ratio making it perhaps the most efficient GPU core available at the time. The core on the GTX 760 is however not the full fat GK104 we see in both the GTX 770 and GTX 680 models, instead this version has had 2 SMX units trimmed from the available 8 leaving 6 units remaining."

LG Optimus G Pro from AT&T Review
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 9:02A | Optical Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Upon first glance of the LG Optimus G Pro, it's easy to draw comparisons to Samsung's Galaxy Note II. The two phones are strikingly similar. Both feature massive 5.5-inch displays along with rounded edges and a physical Home button below the screen. When placed side-by-side, the two phones appear to be nearly identical in size. However, upon closer examination you'll notice the Galaxy Note II is slightly taller and wider than the Optimus G Pro. Technical specifications reveal the Galaxy Note II weighs slightly more than the Optimus G Pro as well, but the difference is so small you'll hardly notice...

Dell Inspiron 15 and 15z review
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 9:00A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ironically, the more interesting of the two laptops is the entry-level Inspiron 15. By using an UItrabook processor it created a pretty interesting combination. You have decent performance, entry-level features along with a touchscreen that works great with Windows 8. If you don't have any special requirements, then this laptop is one we can strongly recommend. Without touchscreen it only costs 399 euros, which is very affordable.

Creative Sound Blaster ZxR Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Jun 25 2013 | 8:41A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Creative and the Sound Blaster brand is synonymous with PC audio and today we take a look at the latest Sound Blaster flagship, the ZxR. Promising an unbeatable 124dB Signal to noise ratio and comprised of high grade components and materials, the ZxR comes with a fairly hefty price tag too. Supplied with a DBPro daughter board for an I/O expansion, the ZxR is set to offer unprecedented versatility for many users. Comparing cost to competition it may be hard to see how this can fit into the add in sound card market over what the primary competition has to offer so let`s take a look inside and see if it is worth the fuss."
