A Futurelooks News Flash - The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Maxwell Video Card Reviewed
     Fri, Sep 26 2014 | 4:51P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On September 18th, NVIDIA launched the brand new GTX 980 and GTX 970 to PC gaming fans at their GAME24 event. The very next day, GPUS from both ASUS and ZOTAC (and more) hit the shelves. Even system builders like iBUYPOWER were ready with stock on hand to build your latest GTX 900 series system. And now weve got one too and were running NVIDIAs latest GTX 980 through its paces."

Rosewill Fortress 750 W @ techPowerUp
     Fri, Sep 26 2014 | 11:10A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Rosewill`s portfolio includes the Fortress line, a Platinum PSU series for users who look for high efficiency and reliability, but are on a tight budget. We are testing the 750W model today, which features a non-modular cabling design to save on cost and comes with a hefty seven-year warranty. The cherry on top is its silent operation."

Acer XB280HK 28-in 4K G-Sync Monitor Review
     Fri, Sep 26 2014 | 8:34A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Acer 4K panel looks absolutely stunning when gaming at 3840x2160 and if you read over the GTX 980 / GTX 970 review and learned about NVIDIA`s Dynamic Super Resolution technology, you can see why even lower resolution displays would want to take advantage of 4K rendering. Games like Crysis 3 and Skyrim look awesome with scalable textures and details visible that simply aren`t there in any other configuration. The problem with a 4K resolution is of course the rendering horsepower required to run it - expect to need twice the GPU (either higher end cards or SLI) to really run 4K gaming at similar image quality settings you would with a 2560x1440 screen."

COUGAR 700M Mouse and Speed Mouse Pad Review
     Thu, Sep 25 2014 | 8:58A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 700M is quite the mouse if you give yourself time to adjust. Perhaps I`ve just been set in a style of mouse lately, but I did find this one in particular to be *very* difficult to get used to. Nonetheless, I did get used to it and it might be awhile before I decide one of you readers needs a new mouse (hint-hint for a giveaway), but we shall see. The lightness of the overall mouse, even with all weights in, was rather appealing, and it wasn`t a cheap feel as you might expect. Light is generally associated with cheap plastic mice, but this was solid in quality and owes its light eight mainly to the aluminum frame."

Intel Core i7-5960X Extreme CPU Performance Review
     Tue, Sep 23 2014 | 4:16P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel has upped the ante for LGA2011 systems with the new LGA2011-V3 specification, comprising the new X99 chipset and Haswell-E CPUs. The top-end Core i7-5960X is Intel?s first consumer 8-core CPU and boasts an amazing 20 megabytes of on-chip cache and a new quad-channel DDR4 memory controller.
