15-Way Open-Source Intel/AMD/NVIDIA GPU Comparison
     Mon, Jul 08 2013 | 4:22P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When running Fedora 19 with its updated open-source Linux graphics drivers, 15 different Intel, AMD Radeon, and NVIDIA GeForce GPUs were compared when looking at the open-source Linux OpenGL performance. The tested graphics processors span from the Intel HD Graphics 4600 Haswell integrated graphics to the AMD Radeon HD 7950 Southern Islands graphics card to the vintage Radeon X1800XL."

Corsair Vengeance Pro Series 2x8GB DDR3-2400 CL10 1.65V Review @ Ocaholic
     Mon, Jul 08 2013 | 1:15P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Responding to the release of Haswell microprocessors, Corsair have recently expanded their product range by a Vengeance Pro memory lineup. A couple of days ago we already had a chance to tangle with a pair of 2133C11 but since one model might not represent the changes brought into entire series, let us try to draw a clearer picture by putting another Pro set on todays menu."

OCZ Vertex 3.20 240GB SSD Review @ Hardware Canucks
     Mon, Jul 08 2013 | 11:49A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ`s Vertex series has a long history of providing high performance but with the Vertex 3.20 model, this enthusiast brand is now making its way to lower price points. By using 22nm NAND, OCZ has been able to achieve a sub-$250 price point while maintaining top-shelf performance."

Seagate 600 240GB SATA III 6Gbps SSD Review @ Legit Reviews
     Mon, Jul 08 2013 | 9:17A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Seagate is certainly one of the titans when it comes to PC storage options - both consumer and enterprise. It makes sense for them to use their considerable infrastructure to make their mark on the SSD market segment - something they`ve been slow to do. We found performance on our Seagate 600 240GB drive to be very good with the Link_A_Media Devices (LAMD) LM87800 controller handling all the heavy lifting. The specifications of 550MB/s reads and 450MB/s writes were hit without a problem and even on incompressible data, speeds were solid. IOPS performance was very good as well, exceeding the 80,000/70,000 reads/writes by a bit to place in the upper portion of the comparison list..."

NVIDIA's GTX Titan
     Mon, Jul 08 2013 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA's GTX Titan gets a kid brother in the form of the new GTX 780, which is also geared for the high-end market. The GTX 780 isn't exactly little, being based on the same GPU as the Titan and featuring the same GPU Boost 2.0 technology, as well as 3GB GDDR5 memory with potential core/memory clocks of 900/1100+MHz. It's priced lower too at around $649 MSRP, which still isn't exactly cheap. Hit our review of the GTX 780 to see just what sort of punch that sort of price will get you!

Notepal U2 Plus, an aluminium
     Mon, Jul 08 2013 | 9:02A | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NotePal U2 Plus is aluminium cooling pad designed to support notebook computers measuring up to 17". It's construction makes it slim and lightweight, allowing it to double as a carrying case of sorts for your notebook thanks to the included rubber strap. The NotePal U2 Plus also comes with two cooling fans which can be attached to the pad itself as you see fit. Sounds like much ado over a simple peripheral running $29.99 USD, so hit our review to see whether or not it will make a difference during heavy notebook use.

Mad Catz M.O.U.S.9 Gaming Mouse @ Benchmark Reviews
     Mon, Jul 08 2013 | 9:01A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enthusiasts know Mad Catz and their gaming-oriented peripherals. In fact, the company motto is All About the Game. Under their Tritton, Saitek, and Cyborg sub-brands, they`ve offered keyboards, headsets, game controllers, mice, flight sticks and other peripherals aimed at gamers. Now, they tell us, they`ve decided to offer a more mainstream mouse, the M.O.U.S.9. Although it`s visually very similar to their R.A.T. series of gaming mice, the M.O.U.S.9 is more consumer-oriented. How much more so? Well, we here at Benchmark Reviews aim to find out."

ARIA Gladiator 6300-HD7870LE AMD 4.10ghz 6 core
     Mon, Jul 08 2013 | 9:00A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you have a limited budget then many of the high end systems we review on Kitguru are simply out of reach. Today we aim to redress this by looking at a budget oriented build from UK retailer ARIA. The Gladiator 6300 comprises a 6 core AMD processor, 8GB of 1,600mhz memory, Corsair power supply and an AMD HD7870 Tahiti LE graphics card. The asking price? A cool £499.99 inc vat. Is this THE budget system you need to be looking at this year?

Corsair Vengeance Pro Series 2x4GB DDR3-2133 CL11 1.5V Review @ Ocaholic
     Sun, Jul 07 2013 | 1:15P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Release of new microprocessor architecture frequently serves as a nice setting for memory manufacturers to release new products. Jumping on the Haswell bandwagon, comes a lineup of Corsair Vengeance Pro memory lineup which is supposed to be a successor of the Vengeance series. Taking a random representative, today we are going to be looking at a 2133C11-rated set."

Gainward GeForce GTX 760 Phantom
     Sun, Jul 07 2013 | 12:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gainward GTX 760 Phantom certainly is an incredible looking new graphics card that takes what Nvidia has achieved with the GTX 760 and made it better in almost every possible way. The upgraded cooler with removable fans works very well, making it not only easy to clean the fans but also replace them should they ever fail.

Gigabyte GTX 760 OC Windforce
     Sun, Jul 07 2013 | 12:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“The Gigabyte GTX 760 OC Windforce is the latest in the company’s popular model series, and this model now comes with an updated version of its namesake cooler. We’ve been impressed in the past with Windforce graphics cards, and we suspect this new one will be no different. At a price of only $259, it’s just $10 more than the reference design, but comes with an aggressive overclock and what we expect will be an impressive cooler. In terms of competition, the GTX 760 is positioned against AMD’s Radeon 7950, and we have high expectations of today’s launch, since we’ve seen the 780 and 770 crush the competition. Can the GeForce GTX 760 continue the winning trend? Let’s find out.”

NZXT Phantom 630 Ultra Tower
     Sun, Jul 07 2013 | 11:49A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During the last two years PC Case manufacturers seem to have but a single goal in mind and that`s to release towers of unprecedented quality, size and features aimed almost entirely towards hardcore gamers, enthusiasts and professionals. Certainly that`s a very good thing for consumers especially since never before have we seen the release of overwhelming towers like the massive Corsair Obsidian 0900D, the breathtaking Cooler Master Cosmos II, the elegant Lian Li PC-X2000FN and the modern NZXT Phantom 820 inside such a short period of time. The only downside such dreadnaughts have is their hefty price tags making them extremely hard for the majority of people to own something which every manufacturer out there is well aware. So to cover all consumer segments NZXT has several models in the Phantom line including the Phantom 630 Ultra Tower which they released as the next best thing for people who can`t or don`t want to spend way over USD200 for the top of the line Phantom 820 Ultra+ Tower. Thus prior to checking out the Phantom 820 Ultra+ Tower we decided to see just what the Phantom 630 Ultra Tower has to offer and then in turn compare it with its larger brother."
