NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 SLI @ techPowerUp
     Thu, Feb 05 2015 | 8:59A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a single GTX 960 threatening to shake up the mid-range, the way its bigger siblings did, the question on everyone`s mind is if two GTX 960 cards can measure up to single, bigger GTX 900 series cards, and on the cheap."

D-Link DNS-320L
     Wed, Feb 04 2015 | 9:03A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The D-Link DNS-320L also has the option to sign up to MyDLink in order to access files from the NAS anywhere in the world. After a simple registration process, the web interface becomes available and is very easy to navigate, and download and upload files to the device. There is also a very useful "MyDlink Access-NAS" app on an Android or iPhone that can be downloaded for free, allowing backups of material from a phone or the ability to access files stored on the NAS. You can also stream music from the device straight to the 'phone with the built-in media player within the app (depending on the speed of the data connection) and even set the app to automatically save photos taken with your 'phone's camera straight to the NAS. Handy!"

Gigabyte F2A88X-UP4 Rev 3.0 Motherboard Review
     Tue, Feb 03 2015 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Gigabyte F2A88X-UP4 is an ATX form-factor motherboard, but unlike the Intel chipset based Gigabyte motherboards I tested earlier, the layout made a good impression. It reminded me of the good times when Gigabyte was well known with 780G/880G/890G/790FX/890FX was rolling out. Phenom II was a good processor and the combo was great. Gigabyte F2A88X-UP4 layout was awfully familiar. It should be noted that my days of putting up reviews started from Gigabyte motherboards.

On Test The Track With Dell's Venue 8 7000 And Intel's Moorefield
     Tue, Feb 03 2015 | 9:02A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell has been strategically showing off their new Venue 8 7000 series tablet over the past few months, starting back at the Intel Developer's Forum in September of last year, then again at Dell World in November, and of course at CES 2015. At each event we got some hands-on time with Dell's interesting new tablet and the new Intel Moorefield Atom platform that powers it, along with Intel's RealSense camera setup, but until this week we haven't gotten much more than a few spare minutes with the device. Upon our return from CE, however, Dell had a couple of packages waiting on our doorsteps, which included both the hot new 2015 Dell XPS 13 ultrabook and their new darling tablet as well.

ASUSTOR AS7004T NAS Server Review
     Mon, Feb 02 2015 | 4:03P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When i first started using and testing NAS (network attached storage) devices well over 5 years ago their specifications couldn't compare to even the most entry level notebook and honestly back then there really was little need for anything more than that since most people used them as download servers, file sharing servers and in some rare cases for hosting pages. However things have changed a lot nowadays and so with the increase in need for serious processing power there are NAS devices out in the market as we speak with specifications equal to those of a high-end notebook or even a mid-end desktop system (minus the graphics card, for now at least). Of course because of their very high price tags (and in some cases large size) such devices are primarily aimed towards enterprise and business users who can really use the extra punch with heavy workloads. ASUSTOR recently announced their AS70xxT ultra high-end series and today with us we have the 4 bay AS7004T NAS model.

Intel Broadwell HD Graphics 5500: Windows 8.1 vs. Linux
     Mon, Feb 02 2015 | 12:16P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Linux graphics tests of Intel`s Broadwell hardware are finally here! Going back to November of 2013 is when Intel began putting out open-source Broadwell HD Graphics code. Since the initial Broadwell code drop, I`ve written dozens of articles to date covering the Linux kernel work, Mesa DRI OpenGL driver progress, Beignet OpenCL compute support, and other key Linux components work on Intel Broadwell support. A few days ago I received the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon with Core i7 Broadwell CPU to finally see how the Linux support has panned out for this next-generation line-up succeeding Haswell."
