ASUS Rampage V Extreme (LGA 2011-3) Motherboard Review
     Mon, Jun 08 2015 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Rampage line of ASUS motherboards are famed for their class-leading performance and prestigious reputation. With every new CPU on Intel’s High-End Desktop (HEDT) Platform we’ve seen new ASUS Rampage motherboards. The first Rampage arrived with LGA 775 and the X48 chipset, we saw the second iteration Rampage II come with socket LGA 1366, the X58 chipset and Bloomfield CPUs. The Rampage III arrived with the same socket and chipset but with the new 32nm Gulftown CPUs that introduced 6 cores for the first time. Intel continued the 32nm and 6 core trend when ASUS brought out the Rampage IV Extreme for X79 and Sandy Bridge-E CPUs. With Ivy Bridge-E ASUS refreshed the Rampage IV Extreme with a Black Edition variant that used the same socket and chipset as the original board it improved on. Now we’ve got Intel’s Haswell-E 8 cores and ASUS have brought the Rampage motherboard into its fifth iteration – and it’s more bada$$ than ever before.

Posted by: STAFF

Driving a 40 ton truck or the latest formula 1 racing car, the main thing is a high realism. Of course, you need not only a well programmed game and a powerful PC. Also the input hardware is very important. For the most realistic racing pleasure we present the Thrustmaster T500RS GT6 force feedback steering wheel set in our review today.

NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV Reviewed: Gaming And The Ultimate 4K Streamer
     Sun, Jun 07 2015 | 12:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To recap a bit, the Tegra X1 features a Maxwell-derived GPU and eight CPU cores; four ARM A57 cores and four A53s. The A57 cores are 64-bit, out-of-order designs with multi-issue pipelines, while the A53 cores are simpler, in-order, highly-efficient designs. Which cores are used will depend on the particular workload being executed at the time. The Tegra X1 also packs a 256-core Maxwell-derived GPU with the same programming capabilities and API support as NVIDIA’s desktop GPUs. And it has a video engine capable of full speed 4K 60FPS video playback...

42 USB 3.0 memory sticks, reviewed
     Sun, Jun 07 2015 | 12:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The fastest 32 GB memory stick also happens to be a Sandisk Cruzer Extreme model, with a score of 83 points. After conversion, we find that this stick costs a little over a euro per GB. This 32 GB model also receives an Excellent Choice award. That also goes to the Sandisk Extreme Pro 128GB, which turns out to be the fastest 128 GB stick. Although the performance score of the Corsair Voyager GTX 128GB is almost just as high, Corsair's offering strongly depends on its extremely high read speeds, whereas Sandisk's memory stick takes a more balanced approach.

     Sun, Jun 07 2015 | 12:01P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In recent years, more and more mobile network operators have started releasing their own mobile devices. EE have released the Kestrel phone and the Eagle tablet, for instance. Today we look at a tablet from Vodafone, the Smart Tab 4G. Competitively priced at £125, it is aimed at consumers looking to avoid the biggest price tags but still get a decent – if not phenomenal – device.

Kingston FCR-HS4 USB 3.0 High-Speed Media Reader
     Sun, Jun 07 2015 | 12:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is hard to get too excited about a card reader, but the FCR-HS4 is definitely a nice one. While I typically prefer these kind of things to be compact for portability and so I can hide them away in a drawer, since I have been using this one I leave it right out on my desk. It sits nicely under my monitor and gives me quick access to all of my cards without having to go hunting. It looks good, stays put nicely, and as the testing showed it performs very well.

Kingston HyperX Savage 240GB
     Sun, Jun 07 2015 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Does the Kingston HyperX Savage deliver against the performance numbers in the product data sheet? For the most part it is right on point against the advertised results in each of the tests. Over performing or right on target in most and under performing, specifically in the PCMark 8 storage bandwidth test, much like I saw with the other Phison-based drive in my testing. CPU usage was consistent with the previous Phison results, so that seems to be a trend in the IO Meter testing. Outside of those two hiccups, Kingston's HyperX Savage felt responsive during the tests, much like you should expect with a solid state drive.”

The LG G4
     Sat, Jun 06 2015 | 4:03P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The LG G4 is being marketed as a high-end, flagship device and you may wonder why there's a six-core Snapdragon 808 within rather than an octa-core Snapdragon 810. Recently, a Qualcomm spokesperson answered this very question: "The difference between the chips is that the 810 is scaled for end-to-end 4K and it’s our flagship. The 808 scales for end-to-end 2k and it still captures 4k video but it’s not built to display 4k natively on a screen."

MSI Cubi Review
     Sat, Jun 06 2015 | 4:02P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Cubi, MSI has a small form factor PC in its portfolio, which comes with pre-installed Microsoft Windows 8.1 and it is based on Intel's latest Broadwell platform. Apart from that the system features a very attractive price and even the performance could be on a very reasonable level, since there is an Intel i3-U-series CPU inside.
