Intel 4960X vs Intel 4770K SLI Performance Review @ RWLabs
     Mon, Sep 09 2013 | 4:55P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Forty lanes of connectivity are built into the Ivy Bridge-E processors and are divided into as many as 10 different ports, giving it more bandwidth than Haswell, and Ivy Bridge processors. The question is, with extremely powerful graphics cards on the market, such as the Nvidia GTX 780 and GTX Titan can the additional bandwidth translate into better performance?

Logitech G602 Wireless Gaming Mouse
     Mon, Sep 09 2013 | 1:10P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although Ive used and tested over 60 different mice models from most manufacturers around so far i can`t say that there have been many wireless ones that i would ever consider playing games with. As a matter of fact aside the very good R.A.T.9 by Mad Catz and the Ouroboros by Razer (which shares quite a few characteristics with the R.A.T.9) i don`t think there`s a chance Id ever use another wireless gaming mouse with one of my desktop systems since yes i do like to play games whenever i find the time. Logitech has also launched a few wireless gaming mice in the market with very good performance levels but so far none felt exactly at home when playing fast passed FPS and MMOs something which is naturally considered as an issue especially for gamers. Well it seems that Logitech is not giving up on gamers and so just recently they announced their latest G602 Wireless Gaming mouse which has been on our test bench for just over a week now."

External Storage Roundup: LaCie, Toshiba, and WD
     Mon, Sep 09 2013 | 9:01A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You have to appreciate a good external hard drive that faithfully ferries important data from one place to another, while safely stashed on a drive that's wrapped inside a slick-looking, durable chassis. These days, the storage capacity on a typical and relatively inexpensive external hard drive is large; 1TB is a standard size, and it isn't at all uncommon to see 2TB drives, too. We looked at a few external hard drives from Toshiba, WD, and LaCie, all with similar specs to see how they stacked up against one another. All three of the units in our test bank employ a speedy USB 3.0 interface with capacities that range from 750GB to 1TB in size and, as it happens, all three are compact and highly portable...
