Posted by: STAFF
“Another in the list of SandForce SSDs is the latest from KingSpec, called the Challenger E3000. It’s an Enterprise-targeted drive, with great random write performance. While KingSpec may not be well known to many of our readers, they are a company based in Shenzhen, China and only produce SSDs, nothing else. Strictly speaking, based on such a specific product lineup, KingSpec has an enormous capacity to produce a huge volume of drives for the market. We love competition, so this new SSD should be interesting. Can the KingSpec Challenger E3000 live up to its billing? Let’s find out.”

EVGA GeForce GTX 770 SuperClocked ACX Review
     Sat, Jun 22 2013 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The EVGA GeForce GTX 770 of course is based on the same GK-104 graphics processor and packs in 1536 CUDA cores, 32 ROPs, 128 Texture units and has a 2GB frame buffer that runs on a 256-bit bus. The EVGA model though runs both the memory and GPU engines at higher frequencies and it also utilizes, EVGA's latest thermal design; the EVGA ACX Cooler. This cooler uses a double ball bearing design that redefines traditional enthusiast coolers. Starting with a 40% increase in heatsink volume, the EVGA ACX is more efficient at dissipating heat, allowing for 15% lower GPU temperatures. A reinforcement baseplate maintains a straight PCB, and helps lower MOSFET temperatures by 7% and memory temperatures by 15%.

Dell XPS 18 Portable All-In-One Desktop Review
     Sat, Jun 22 2013 | 12:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell has chosen to combine two trending computing design styles into a single system and call it the XPS 18 Portable All-In-One Desktop. It has all the power of a an entry level desktop and some of the portability of a tablet, though let's be clear that Dell isn't pitching you'll want to tote this across town on a train or in other ways that you might use an iPad or Nexus 7. It's portable in the sense that you can snatch up the 18.4-inch Full HD display and lug it from your home office to the living room, plop it on the table, and switch gears from Google Docs to gaming with the kids. Or take it bed for some late night surfing before drifting off to sleep. You can dock the display on your desk with the included stand or carry it around. At around 5 pounds, it's heavier than a traditional tablet, though it's also much bigger and obviously more powerful. Mixing these two form factors is an interesting concept, but does it work in a design this large? Let's have a look.

Google Chromebook Pixel Review
     Sat, Jun 22 2013 | 12:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Earlier this year, Google did something almost ground-breaking when it introduced the Chromebook Pixel. Sure, the Chromebook line as a whole has existed for a few years, but the entire premise of such a range of notebooks revolved around only a couple of design goals. One of those was accessibility, and almost by default, the other was affordability. The original Chromebooks were priced at $500 or less -- in some cases, far less. The reason seemed obvious: Chrome OS was a great operating system for those who did little more than browse the Web and connect to cloud-based services such as Evernote, but it served less of a purpose in the productivity-minded "real world." The Chromebook Pixel on the other hand, is perhaps the most curious gadget launch of the year. It's an extreme combination of premium parts and design coupled with a fledgling operating system. It's an odd melding of premium and basic features rolled into a single device. And this time around, Google priced out an expensive offering to be sure. Much like other Chromebooks, it's also difficult to categorize versus other products in the market...

OCZ Vertex 450 Solid State Drive Review:
     Sat, Jun 22 2013 | 12:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ already offers a wide array of popular, high performance SSDs, but to the company's credit, it's not resting on its laurels. After employing SandForce controllers on some of the earlier Vertex SSDs, OCZ snapped up Indilinx and is using what is now its own proprietary silicon in many of its drives. Thus, the brand new OCZ Vertex 450 SSD we'll be showing you here today with an Indilinx Barefoot 3 M10 series controller inside, is very much a "vertical" effort, with the Indilinx and OCZ-owned PLX teams building both the silicon and firmware. The 256GB version, which is the model we put on the test bench, has sequential read/write speed ratings of 540/525 MBps and 85,000/90,000 4KB random read/write IOPS. Come take a look at the new OCZ Vertex 450...

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Review
     Sat, Jun 22 2013 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When NVIDIA introduced the GeForce GTX Titan a few months back, the company created a huge gap in its single-GPU product line-up. With its GK110 GPU and massive 6GB frame buffer, the GeForce GTX Titan was easily able to outrun the GK104-based GeForce GTX 680 and it hung with the dual-GPU powered GeForce GTX 690 as well. That gap between the GeForce GTX 680 and GTX Titan could have potentially been filled by a scaled down GK110 with a smaller frame buffer, and in fact, one of the first questions we asked of NVIDIA during our briefing on Titan was if a more affordable version of the card was in the works, but company reps were expectedly mum at the time. It's not like NVIDIA to comment on unannounced products, but we took a shot anyway. NVIDIA's talking now, though. Today marks the arrival of the GeForce GTX 780, a graphics card that is essentially a GeForce GTX Titan, with a scaled down GK110 GPU and a smaller, but still relatively large, 3GB compliment of video memory...

ASUS Z87-DELUXE Motherboard Review @ HiTech Legion
     Sat, Jun 22 2013 | 11:21A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ASUS Z87-Deluxe Motherboard offers many features you would expect to find on an enthusiast level motherboard. The Z87-Deluxe, built for the 4th Generation Intel Core Processors, comes with dual LAN (one being Intel), a Wifi/Bluetooth module, which is 802.11 ac as well as a software package and UEFI BIOS that many consider second to none. The ASUS Z87-Deluxe is LGA 1150 and is built upon the Intel Z87 chipset. It also has CPU Level Up options that can be either done manually by turning on the TPU switch right on the motherboard, via the BIOS, or in your OS using the new ASUS AI Suite III.///"
