Intel Core i7-4770K Haswell 3.5GHz Quad-Core CPU Review @ Legit Reviews
     Sun, Jun 02 2013 | 1:06P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Intel Core i7-4770K is an interesting processor to review from a performance standpoint. When it comes to raw CPU performance it appears that Haswell brings a small performance increase to the table over an Ivy Bridge processor. Is it a large enough performance gain to make those that just bought an Ivy Bridge system in 2012 to go run out and buy a whole new system? Not likely, but for those with older processors the performance of Haswell should give you nice gains and you`ll be able to use the new LGA-1150 platform and reap the benefits of the new Intel Z87 chipset and supporting third party solutions..."

Lenovo Y500 Gaming Notebook Review: The Best Mobile Gaming Value Around?
     Sun, Jun 02 2013 | 12:35P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This sucker tears apart nearly every graphics performance test we threw at it, besting models equipped with GTX 670MX cards and decisively conquering anything with a single GT 650M (of which the Y500 we reviewed has two). It can easily handle most any modern game on High settings, and many even on Ultra. And best of all, its got one heck of a nice screen, sporting 1080p with good color reproduction, decent brightness, and a respectable level of contrast."

ASUS GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II OC Review @ Ocaholic
     Sun, Jun 02 2013 | 11:35A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today the NDA regarding NVIDIAs new GeForce GTX 770 is ending. In this context ASUS was kind enough to provide us with a custom card and obviously, we`ve had to check what this thing is actually capable of. The GTX 770 is based on NVIDIA`s GK104 chip, which is made from 3.54 billion transistors. In case of the GTX 770 there are eight SMX units activated. Overall one can expect this card to be faster than the GTX 680 and even the price tag should be interesting."

PowerColor HD 7850 SCS3 passive 1 GB @ techPowerUp
     Sun, Jun 02 2013 | 10:14A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
PowerColor`s HD 7850 SCS3 is a fanless implementation of the HD 7850, which means that it does not emit any noise while offering enough performance for serious gaming in full HD. With a price increase of $25 over the reference design, it`s not too expensive either."

PowerColor Radeon HD 7870 Myst Edition Crossfire Review
     Sun, Jun 02 2013 | 10:14A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you look at the performance generated by a pair of PowerColor`s HD 7870 Myst Edition cards, it`s hard not to be impressed when you look at the FRAPS-based testing. Especially when you look at the performance at 5760x1080 where the narrower memory bus on the GTX 660Ti limits the bandwidth hampering performance. The FCAT testing paints a different picture of the Crossfire performance of the HD 7870 Myst Edition. Let me say up front it`s not a hardware problem but a software problem that AMD hopes to have resolved as early as in June with its own frame metering driver. The hardware is capable enough but the software side has let the Crossfire experience down on the HD 7870 Myst Edition. In terms of game play the worst feel in game was by far in the Far Cry 3 testing where the game was just chugging along with visual anomalies that are present even when run in single card mode. It`s got to be purely driver related at this point with the FCAT data backing it up."

Samsung ATIV 500T Smart PC - BCCHardware
     Sun, Jun 02 2013 | 10:14A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I was pretty happy with the dock that comes with the ATIV 500T. The keyboard is comparable to other Samsung laptops and has a nice feel to it. The dock feels solid and the latch that holds the tablet into the dock seems like it is decent enough to take a little abuse (I would obviously recommend against dropping the entire unit if possible). Once docked, the entire assembly functions just like a laptop and hinges closed like a regular laptop would. . ."

Intel Haswell 4th Generation CPU: i5-4670K and i7-4770K Review @ Madshrimps
     Sun, Jun 02 2013 | 9:31A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel keeps on pushing their technology to the max. Even while being the performance leader in most hardware segments, their engineers are driven to (re)design new architectures to satisfy the end-user`s desire for more speed. However the focus with this CPU generation is not purely based on raw speed; this 4th generation main objective is to reduce the power consumption to the max, to gain grounds in the portable market. Rumor that Intel was pulling out of the desktop market has partially become reality. Not leaving the desktop market for what it is, as they will continue to develop the chipsets and processors. With Haswell we see the last releases of Intel`s own motherboard branch. The market share of notebooks, ultrabooks, tablets and mini enclosures are steadily taking over the market share of the desktop. Enhanced battery life, a result of a reduced power consumption, an enhanced onboard graphic chip and the reduction of required motherboard components are the major trademarks of Intel`s 4th generation processors. Time to put both K skews to the test."

ROCCAT Hiro Mousepad Review
     Sun, Jun 02 2013 | 8:21A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the Speed comparison, I turned the DeathAdder to 3500 DPI with the goal to see if the mousepad was still readable. The good news is the Razer DeathAdder picked up the Hiro and I could barely keep track of where the mouse went. The worst surface was the desk - I almost had to pick up the mouse before it moved off the desk. There is not much to this observation, but just remember fast is good because you can always turn down the sensitivity. On the other hand, if your mouse does not pick it up the pad in the first place, then that becomes a problem. I find myself leaving the DeathAdder at 1800 DPI and making slight adjustments in game. If you are playing a real-time strategy (RTS) game, a low DPI might suit you better, but I`ve also known a few people who max out the DPI so they don`t have to move their hand basically at all."

Rosewill RPLC-500 500 Mbps Powerline Networking Kit Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, Jun 01 2013 | 4:27P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In terms of getting a network connection from one point to another in a way that most folk consider neat and orderly, some ways are easier than others. Running Ethernet or coaxial cable can be messy for existing structures, and sometimes theres a reason not to use WiFi. When those two standard options are out, the next one to consider is Powerline networking. Powerline is oft-forgotten, because most folk reach for a better WiFi router when they need it. The 500 Mbps RPLC-500 Kit from Rosewill is a new contender in this space. It offers a smaller wall wart adapter than some of its competitors offerings and great power saving features. Its plug-and-play operation lets users get up and running in no time."
