Genius Gila GX Series Gaming Mouse Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Apr 03 2013 | 4:01P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After hours and hours of gaming with the Gila, I am honestly impressed. I wasnt believing of those chiseled edges, the silly car lights, and the laundry list of mundane features on the box. I still dont care for every wordy marketing statement Genius has attached to the Gila, but Ive shed whatever skepticism I had towards the usability of this mouse for gaming..."

Dell XPS 10 review: Windows RT according to Dell
     Tue, Apr 02 2013 | 4:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Dell XPS 10 is a successful combination of laptop and tablet. If you're considering the XPS 10, we would recommend getting it with the keyboard dock as it's definitely worth it. It turns it into a true mini-laptop with touchscreen with outstanding battery life and very decent performance from the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4.

Frame Rating: GeForce GTX Titan GeForce GTX 690 Radeon HD 7990 (HD 7970 CrossFire)
     Tue, Apr 02 2013 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA`s GeForce GTX 690 and GTX Titan present another debate though on the issue of single versus multi-GPU options. In our testing the GTX 690 definitely introduces more frame time variance than the GTX Titan, but the cards are so fast as it is that running the GTX 690 at single monitor resolutions like 1920x1080 and 2560x1440 don`t cause a big enough problem to be a factor, thus giving it the edge because of the higher average frame rates. The GTX Titan is a powerful card and performs admirably in the single display testing but it really stands away from the GTX 690 on multi-monitor resolutions like 5760x1080 where the 6GB frame buffer can help a TON."

Func Surface 1030 XL mousepad @ Rbmods
     Tue, Apr 02 2013 | 4:01P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Func was a big company back in the day when the mousepad starting meaning something in the gaming world. In early 2000 the Ratpad, Icemat and Func were the leading mousepads on the market but suddenly Funs dissapeard. Now they are back! Well in a sense they are back -however they do not want to call it a comeback because they have been around all this time. Today we are going to test the new Func Surface 1030 XL mousepad. This is a hard mousepad and not many manufacturers still make plastic pads so I am very curious to see what they have been able to come up with."
