Tech News: Is VALVe Gearing Up To Battle Nintendo Sony And Microsofts Next-Gen Gaming Consoles?
     Thu, Jan 10 2013 | 9:47A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Anyone even remotely associated with gaming knows about Steam. VALVe`s software evolved from being a lowly bare-bones digital-rights management (DRM) nuisance to a tremendously successful digital-content distribution system holding well over 80-85% of market share on PC. VALVe recently rolled out Steam`s Big Picture Mode, a new UI designed specifically for TV`s making it easier for users who prefer console environments of sitting far away with controllers in hand. The push for BPM was quite substantial, as it had only been in beta for a few months. For a company like VALVe that operates in VALVe Time, it comes as a surprise that BPM would be released (and finished) so quickly, especially considering that PC games and gamers alike prioritize mouse and keyboard desktop settings."

Tt eSPORTS Level 10 M Gaming Mouse Review @ Legit Reviews

Corsair AX860 Modular Power Supply Review @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Jan 09 2013 | 1:34P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The electrical performance of the Corsair AX860 is setting new milestones, with efficiency which easily grant it the 80Plus Platinum certification, unequaled voltage regulation and excellent ripple suppression. This high efficiency allowed Corsair to implement the Hybrid fan mode, allowing the fan to completely stop while the internal temperature of the AX860 is low, allowing the power supply to operate noiselessly while the system is idling or performing trifling operations, such as when watching/listening to media or web browsing. Considering the capacity of the AX860, it is highly likely that the fan will never even start if the system is using a typical new CPU and an average VGA card..."

Intel 335 Series 240GB SATA III SSD Review
     Wed, Jan 09 2013 | 11:55A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ever since Solid State Drives (SSDs) were first introduced to the general public roughly 5 years ago they have been amongst my favorite hardware components and in a way monopolized my reviews up until a year ago. The reason behind that last part is that although up until a year ago there were large performance jumps with each new model released (making it more than worth testing to see the exact difference in speed with previous models) that no longer was the case and so inside 2012 the only thing that really changed was the price of such devices. Still many of you have asked several SSD reviews during the past 2 months and as always we obliged by starting to gather several samples from the leading manufacturers. This time over however in order to be more time effective we will not wait until we have 10-20 all together for a large comparison like the old days (more impressive but takes too much time to complete) and so on our test bench today lays the latest Intel 335 Series 240GB SATA III model."

Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Wed, Jan 09 2013 | 9:48A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HAPPY NEW YEAR PEOPLE! May 2013 prove to be a lot better than 2012 for everyone around the world. So after 4 full days of just lying down and having a good time with friends and family (well not really since we also spend quite a bit of time performing benchmarks and testing peripherals) we are back. Now some of you may remember that roughly 2 months ago and after quite a few emails by some of you we started gathering and testing mechanical keyboards from all the top manufacturers in the field not only because we wanted to showcase exactly what you are getting with your hard earned money but also because we wanted to have a more complete experience surrounding the available cherry MX switches in the market currently. So for the past 15 days we`ve been testing the latest G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard by Logitech which in the end proved to be a lot better than we originally thought it would."

NVIDIA GeForce 600 Kepler On Open-Source: Its Uselessly Slow
     Wed, Jan 09 2013 | 9:29A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Linux 3.8 kernel that`s presently under development, the open-source reverse-engineered Nouveau driver for supporting NVIDIA graphics processors has seen some significant changes. One of the late changes was enabling Kepler acceleration support. While there is now an out of the box open-source GPU driver that supports the GeForce 600 GPUs with 3D/OpenGL acceleration, it`s incredibly slow."
