Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon R9 280X OC Edition Review @ ocaholic
     Thu, Aug 14 2014 | 3:53P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sapphire Vapor-X Radeon R9 280X OC Edition is a completely redesigned Radeon R9 280X graphics card, which has almost nothing in common with the reference design. In fact there is a new PCB as well as Sapphires powerful Vapor-X cooler. This combination, paired with a factory overclock sounds promising and we`re hoping for a seriously quick R9 280X here."

Patriot Viper 32GB PC3-17000 2133Mhz DDR3 Memory
     Thu, Aug 14 2014 | 12:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When choosing a memory kit to run in your computer, you shouldn’t take that choice lightly. Your RAM is basically the backbone of your system that enables everything to run buttery smooth. Should you decide to go with a smaller RAM kit, such as 4GB, you may not be able to keep too many programs running at the same time. If you choose you want something larger, like the Patriot Viper 32GB kit that we are going to be looking at in this review, then you have the freedom to run virtually all the programs you could want at the same time!

Asus Zenfone 5 Review
     Thu, Aug 14 2014 | 12:00P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Targeting the entry-level market, the newly-released Zenfone 5 packs a 5.0-inch 720p display, an 8-megapixel camera, customized software, and a rarely-used Intel Atom dual-core SoC. A polished hardware offering and a form factor more closely in line with high-end devices could make this a fantastic choice for a small price.

OCZ ARC 100 Series SSD review (240GB)
     Thu, Aug 14 2014 | 10:32A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html ,Ever since OCZ decided to solely focus on their SSD products, their drive offerings have leaned towards workstation and enthusiast level drives which has left somewhat of a gap in their entry-level or value oriented product line. Given the lower margins for such products and OCZ?s financial struggles (prior to the Toshiba buyout), it?s not very surprising. Their competitors have aggressively pursued this market segment however, and we?ve seen some very economically priced drives from Crucial/Micron, Samsung, SanDisk and others. This is an important demographic as it can be the gateway to building brand loyalty and win over customers who will potentially upgrade to a more performance oriented drive later on. To plug that hole, OCZ is releasing the ARC 100 drive which is aimed squarely at the entry level SSD market, although this doesn?t mean they?ve compromised on performance for the sake of price. They?ve equipped it with their Indilinx Barefoot M10 controller which we know to be a very solid part."

AMD Radeon R9 280X Round-up
     Thu, Aug 14 2014 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although all five Radon R9 280X graphics cards feature their own unique design, they are all very much the same in terms of gaming performance and cooling performance. Still there are subtle variations between the cards that do make one better than another in our opinion. When it comes to value the Asus R9 280X DirectCU II TOP, Gigabyte R9 280X WindForce 3X OC and MSI R9 280X Gaming 3GB (forget the silly 6GB model) cost $300. The HIS R9 280X iPower IceQ X² Turbo 3GB is a little less competitive at $330 and the Sapphire Vapor-X Tri-X OC R9 280X 3GB at $340.

QNAP TS-451
     Thu, Aug 14 2014 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The TS-451 does a lot of new and exciting things and it seems to do them very well. However it hasn’t forgotten about the basics either. When it came to throughput performance the TS-451 delivered, providing some of the best results we have seen. The TS-451’s greatest rival in terms of performance is the DS414, and while the Synology NAS was slightly faster when downloading files, the TS-451 was able to best it in one of our upload tests.

Devil's Canyon Intel Core i7-4790K
     Thu, Aug 14 2014 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The only good news for the Core i7-4790K is that it costs the same amount as the 4770K at $339 and it’s clearly faster. This then is also good news for consumers looking at purchasing a Core i7 processor as they now get a bit more bang for their buck. Those already rocking a 4770K processor can simply change their clock multiplier to x40 and receive 4790K performance.
