Thermaltake Urban SD1 MicroATX Case Review
     Sun, Jun 08 2014 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Thermaltake has recently added another chassis to their Urban lineup. A modern update of the classic Lanbox Lite chassis (also by Thermaltake), the Urban SD1 is designed for builders that are building around the mATX/mITX form factors and still want room for large graphics cards, AIO liquid coolers and multiple drives. Utilizing modular internals in a chassis not much bigger than many ITX boxes, the Urban SD1 promises an easy building experience. Weighing in at 5.8 kg and with dimensions of 239 x 280 x 456mm (HWD), will this sophisticated relative of the Lanbox / Armor A30 deliver on its claims of high-performance in a micro-ATX form factor? Benchmark Reviews was given an opportunity to build a system in the Urban SD1 (model CA-1A9-00S1NN-00), so let’s see what changes have been incorporated in this new member of the Urban chassis family.

Philips Brilliance 239C4QHWAB Miracast-enabled monitor - review at Bjorn3d.com
     Sat, Jun 07 2014 | 10:54A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the rise of mobile devices the need to be able to hook them up to a screen has increased. While both Apple TV and to some extend Google Chromecast offers ways to mirror the screen on supported devices or at least stream some content they both requier extra hardware. There is however another solution: Miracast. Most Android devices and now also Windows 8.1 support Miracast meaning that you should be able to mirror the screen from many devices. To do that you still need a Miracast-enabled screen and this is where the monitor we are reviewing today comes in. The Philips Brilliance 239C4QHWAB is a 23 inch IPS-monitor with full Miracast support."

GDC14: AMD RapidFire and Cloud Gaming
     Sat, Jun 07 2014 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At the 2014 Game Developers Conference (GDC14) this morning, AMD revealed full-functional working demonstrations of their AMD RapidFire Graphics API technology harnessing the power of Cloud-based streaming 3D applications. A bare-bones system with no software installed located Crysis 3 on a Cloud gaming server, and within moments the player was earning frags (actually, he was desperately trying). On the surface this concept may not sound terribly interesting, but it stands to disrupt how we obtain and play video games and graphical design software. For desktop and mobile users software no longer is downloaded or installed; games and applications are essentially a click away.
