OCZ Vertex 450 256GB SSD Review
     Sat, May 25 2013 | 8:21A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The rapid drop in 25nm flash availability and slow RAMp up of 20nm production puts OCZ in a tough position. Vector availability is about to get scarce and Vertex 3.20 can`t be profitable at less than $1 per GB. OCZ needs a higher profit product with the flash available today and it has to be faster than SandForce to sell, enter the new OCZ Vertex 450."

EVGA GeForce GTX 670 FTW Review + SLI @ Ocaholic
     Fri, May 24 2013 | 5:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we have a close look at yet another graphics card from EVGA. This time we`re checking what EVGA`s GeForce GTX 670 FTW can do. Like the GeForce GTX 660 Ti FTW Signature 2, which we reviewed not too long ago, this card is also based on the PCB of NVIDIA`s GTX 680 graphics card. Combined with quite a substantial factory overclocking this card seem to be an interesting contestant and we`re really curious what it can do."

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon Review
     Fri, May 24 2013 | 5:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There aren`t a whole lot of negatives, but I`d be remiss if I didn`t mention Blood Dragon`s UPlay account requirement, even if you by the Steam version like I did. I certainly wouldn`t consider it a deal breaker, but I know some people hate any digital DRM outside of Steam. Unfortunately, if you`re a fan of achievements, there are curiously no Steam Achievements, despite them existing on UPlay. Other than that, there were some minor texture glitches (though you may never even notice them unless you look hard), and vehicles can only be driven in first-person, which can be quite jarring if you`re used to switching to third-person view when in vehicles like I am. All these things are minor qualms, but they are worth mentioning. The other thing that is worth mentioning is the game`s Mature rating. Blood Dragon certainly has its fair share of foul language and sexual content, not to mention its extreme violence. If those things offend you, you may want to steer clear."

Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 Case @ Benchmark Reviews
     Fri, May 24 2013 | 5:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you research a little about Fractal Design, you`ll discover that Design in their name is not an accident. They`ve set out to provide products with an extraordinary design level using a less-is-more philosophy. With that in mind they`ve made some revisions to their Arc Midi enclosure, resulting in the new Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 computer case. The original was praised for its ability to accommodate radiators and other water cooling components in a mid-tower enclosure.

G.Skill RipjawsX F3-2133C9D-16GXH @ Bjorn3D

We have the 16GB (2x8GB) G.Skill RipjawsX DDR3-2133 (F3-2133C9D-16GXH) in our lab today, and were going to run it through the gauntlet. In addition to just doing a simple review of the RAM modules, well also take the opportunity to examine performance differences against 4GB modules, and test how Core i7 3770K performance impacts on the memory frequency."

OWC Mercury Accelsior E2 PCIe SSD Review - Dual eSATA Performance of 780MB/s Tested and Approved
     Fri, May 24 2013 | 4:27P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It seems that OWC has been at it once again and we recently received a new OWC Accelsior E2 PCIe SSD, fitted with two 240GB blade SSDs for excellent performance and capacity once again. The Accelsior is the latest design of the OWC engineering team and contains two 6Gbps eSATA ports that provide for external storage up to 32TB as well as performance similar to the original Accelsior. Once again, OWC has caught us off guard and this seems to be a first and great idea for increasing performance to another level and increasing capacity significantly. The beauty of the Accelsior has always been its expansion capabilities but this knocks the original capacity maximum out of the ball park."

ASUS ROG Orion Pro Gaming Headset Review
     Fri, May 24 2013 | 2:09P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Having completely disposed of the Vulcan ANC headset from ASUS, I honestly expected - and was ready to - hate this headset as well. However, I was completely blown away by the ROG Orion Pro headset. It was beyond my expectations in sound, depth, and overall performance/ease of use. I wanted to hate them after the Vulcan ANC headset had disappointed me so much, but I just couldn`t. The sound quality and depth of songs just left me in awe with the Orion Pro headset. These little guys will be travelling with me next week for work and have a nice little home here at my gaming computer for late night battles with my friends. I honestly can`t put too many words with this headset; the sound is just remarkable for the price and comfort. They just seem surreal."

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost OC WindForce 2X review
     Fri, May 24 2013 | 1:57P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,?The key difference this time around, however, is the selection of MLC NAND. As the name indicates, the Vertex 3.20 uses 20nm MLC NAND compared to the larger 25nm / 34nm variants found on the original Vertex 3. It`s part of a market-wide push for smaller flash across the board. That aside, everything else under the hood remains virtually the same although LSI now owns SandForce.?"
