Gigabyte Radeon R9 270X OC Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Dec 11 2013 | 4:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Radeon R9 270X graphics card was released by AMD in October 2013 and quickly became a favorite for gamers wanting a new card at the $200 price point. When the AMD Radeon R9 270X card first came out we reviewed the reference card and a high-end custom card by Sapphire. Today we will be taking a look at the Gigabyte R9 270X OC that is sold under part number GV-R927XOC-2GD and retails right now for $199.99 plus shipping. Not a bad price for a custom designed card that is also factory overclocked and backed by 3-year warranty."

Understanding M.2 NGFF SSD Standardization (Or The Lack Of)
     Wed, Dec 11 2013 | 2:53P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I cant help but reflect on the confusion that still exists concerning the standardization of M.2 SSDs, regardless of how many times we try to explain this in our reports. If you are confused and not an industry professional, dont be embarrassed. Many others are just as confused and also realizing that there really is no standardization with M.2 SSDs. To compound things, there were no PCIe X4 M.2 SSDs on display at the AIS, and with good reason, according to the SandForce Marketing Team. While everyone at the show might have expected LSI to build and show a PCIe x4 M.2, it looks like they are initially focused on the larger majority of PCIe x2 M.2 systems out now. The standard PCIe x4 HHHL board they did show certainly proved the SF3700 can hit the PCIe bus 1800 MB/s limit."

MSI GeForce GTX 780 Ti Gaming Review
     Wed, Dec 11 2013 | 11:28A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we benchmark, test and review the GeForce GTX 780 Ti Gaming edition from MSI. This all customized graphics card has been mounted with MSI`s popular TwinFrozr IV cooler armed two fans. It remains to be quiet and keeps temperatures under the 70 Degrees C marker as well. Next to that MSI factory overclocked this product for you towards a very nice 1020 MHz on the GPU core, that means it can boost towards 1085 MHz on all of the unlocked 2880 Shader processors available."

ADATA UE700 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review @HiTech Legion
     Wed, Dec 11 2013 | 10:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The UE700 64GB by ADATA is a 3.0 USB thumb drive. ADATA`s UE700 is 2.5 inches long and only 0.3 inches thin. It comes in a sleek black shell that uses a slider to protect the USB port. There is a blue LED on the side of the drive with textured rings radiating away from it. There is a strap hole on the back end and it comes with a leather-like 3 inch strap for carrying and attaching it to key chains or purses or anything. "

Civilization V 3-Years Later Review
     Wed, Dec 11 2013 | 9:36A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I have over 230 hours in Civilization V, as I stated earlier, and not a minute of that do I consider lost. The game keeps pulling me back in, and the reason is because of its well designed and balanced micromanagement potential. I like selecting the buildings to be built and finding the best spots to settle cities. I relish hunting for new islands and continents to explore, and every match I start offers something new. I know that is why I like the game and recommend it to others. If that is the kind of gameplay you enjoy as well, then I can certainly recommend it to you."

As the slimmest external drive currently available, the ADATA HE720 takes portability and convenience to a whole new level while making no sacrifices in terms of performance. Looking from the outside, the 8.5mm thick ADATA HE720 is wrapped in a stylish, stainless steel shell that embodies a classic high quality look.

iStarUSA BPN-2535DE-SA SATA 6Gb/s Hot-Swap Cage
     Tue, Dec 10 2013 | 11:01A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the things Ive noticed over the years is that as time goes by consumer products get closer and closer to enterprise grade products both in terms of performance and reliability in an effort to cater the needs of professionals and enthusiasts alike. Certainly pure enterprise grade products will never have something to fear from high end consumer products since in the end we are talking about two entirely different markets with massively different price ranges but the gap between them is simply not what it was a decade ago. That combined with the continuous price drops on electronics in general are more than enough even for casual users to turn towards solutions that up until recently were primarily aimed towards professionals and enterprise users. Amongst such products are internal hot-swap drive cages and since 2.5 drives gain ground over their larger 3.5 brothers today we will be taking a look at the BPN-2535DE-SA 3.5 to 2x2.5 SATA 6Gb/s Hot-Swap Cage by"

Battlefield 4 Review (PC) @ Vortez
     Tue, Dec 10 2013 | 9:36A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The twelfth instalment of the Battlefield series, Battlefield 4 still uses the winning multiplayer formula of its predecessors, and why shouldn`t it? It`s what`s made the series so popular in the first place and is what makes it stand out from the others. However, a single player campaign has also been added that continues on from the events of Battlefield 3`s campaign."
