Fractal Design Arc XL Mid-Tower Case Review
     Wed, Oct 30 2013 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fractal Design’s Arc XL is the largest case in Fractals Arc line of Mid-Tower cases. At 22.5 inches the Arc XL is taller than some Full-Tower cases and it’s absolutely packed with features. Mounting points for seven large fans, dust filters, movable hard drive cages, ample space for multiple radiators and a built in fan controller make the Arc XL a formidable cooler."

Plantronics RIG Gaming Headset Reviewed
     Wed, Oct 30 2013 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Have you ever been on a game winning streak, or near an all time high score and your phone rings? Do you answer it, or keep going? Or perhaps your team really needed to get a hold of you to defend the team’s title almost last minute but you were too immersed in your other game to notice the call. While the first two are common scenarios, there are also gamers who like to game at work whether it be at the office or at home. Imagine if you could hear and talk to your incoming calls without having to take off your gaming headset. Well, imagine no longer. The Plantronics RIG Gaming Headset is exactly what you need."

L-Com Gigabit Ethernet Desktop Switches @ TechwareLabs.com
     Wed, Oct 30 2013 | 8:04A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
L-Com isn`t a company you hear much about in the tech industry circles; indeed their primary market has been industrial applications, where durability is just as important as performance. Today we`ll be taking a look at a pair of Gigabit Ethernet switches from L-Com, the LC-SW805G 5 port switch and the LC-SW808G 8 port switch. They`re not designed to withstand triple digit temperatures and dusty environments clogged with industrial chemicals, but that same mindset of durability obtains here as well."

Zetta Z12 Intelligent Security Camcorder
     Tue, Oct 29 2013 | 6:21P | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`ve always found camcorders to be one of the very few fascinating electronic devices around since they can hold all your precious memories unaltered forever or at least for as long as you`d like. Surveillance cameras may not be exactly the same as camcorders but they too have their purpose and who can deny the significance of letting you keep an eye on things even if you`re far away? So it`s not really surprising that when the first action cameras started to emerge a few years back i also developed an interest in them although i can`t say i was really impressed by the first few attempts. Quite a few years have passed since then and now action cameras have not only gotten smaller in size but they also feature higher grade hardware components allowing them to record up to FullHD 1080p resolutions with bitrates that in some cases rival the ones of regular handheld camcorders. Not everyone however has use for 1080p and so Zetta has introduced an SD (Standard Definition) intelligent security camcorder the Z12 which we took for a ride to see what it can do."

AMD Radeon R9 280X Roundup: ASUS MSI and Sapphire
     Tue, Oct 29 2013 | 4:35P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Clearly the TOXIC card attempts to justify its price with the larger and impressive cooler along with the highest default overclocks. Both the ASUS and MSI cards are on equal price footing and both provide very similar features. The DirectCU II cooler and custom board design from the ASUS option likely give it the edge, head to head."

     Tue, Oct 29 2013 | 4:03P | Power Supply | PermaLink

The 80PLUS Gold power supply and the connecting cables are supplied each in a bag to have all necessary cables ready to hand for the next PC upgrade.

BIOS Option Of The Week - Disable Jitter
     Tue, Oct 29 2013 | 4:01P | BIOS | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since 1999, we have been developing the BIOS Optimization Guide, affectionately known as the BOG. From a meager beginning of a single page, it now covers over 440 BIOS options. As old BOG readers will know, we started offering two editions of the BOG since Revision 8.0 - a simplified edition and the complete edition. Normally, the complete edition is only available to subscribers who help sponsor the development of the guide through a small fee. However, that changes today! From now on, we will post a BIOS option from the complete edition of the BIOS Optimization Guide every weekend.

ARM Introduces the Mali-T700 GPU Family: ARM Refreshes Too!
     Tue, Oct 29 2013 | 1:06P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The T760 is the top end product from ARM when it comes to advanced graphics capabilities and performance. It is completely redesigned from the T600 series and is poised to be a leader in performance in its particular market. It includes up to 16 unified shader cores (though that number is up to the licensees discretion) and a host of advanced features that improve both performance and power consumption. The T700 architecture is based on the very power efficient tiling mode rendering, which was spearheaded by Imagination Technologies some 17 years ago. Tiling is very efficient in terms of memory accesses, and therefore more efficient with power when using similar process technologies as compared to an immediate mode renderer."
