"The Nexus NX-5000V1 550W Power Supply has been revised since the original NX-5000 with 50 watts more power, has a higher efficiency and is compliant with ErP2013, but still as super quiet. Also, this PSU is super small at 125mm long, so it's perfect for a small computer build." ~3dGameMan.com

Samsung EX2F Camera Review
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 9:00A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Point-and-shoots are great for several occasions, but most fall short in low lighting. With larger sensors helping to combat this problem, a fast lens can also do wonders for low light photography. Samsung has updated its EXF series with an f/1.4 lens, making shooting in low light almost comparable to a budget range DSLR. We find the Samsung EX2F very unique in a sea of point-and-shoot cameras, aptly displayed by the addition of Wi-Fi compatibility for easy sharing over a wide gamut of devices. A modest 12.4 megapixels seems to marry the sensor/aperture, for a properly exposed image with minimum noise at low ISO. Finally, the intuitive menu system that anyone can master, coupled with a brilliant varied-angled AMOLED screen makes the EX2F a very alluring pocket sized camera.

GIGABYTE Z87-D3HP Review @ Vortez
     Thu, Jun 27 2013 | 3:56A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
GIGABYTE`s Z87-D3HP will surprise many because it looks more expensive than it actually is. Many lower-end motherboards tend to cut back not only on features but also aesthetics but D3HP still oozes the quality of a higher-end model with its sleek matt black PCB and gun metal heatsinks. Ultra Durable 5 Plus comes as standard on this motherboard so consumers needn`t worry about the quality either. Can this really be too good to be true? Let`s find out!"

What Enabling C6/C7 Low-Power States Do On Haswell @ Legit Reviews
     Wed, Jun 26 2013 | 4:53P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On our Windows 8 test platform we were able to quickly see the benefits of running with the C6 and C7 power states enabled. We found that with C6/C7 disabled that the system would idle between 23.7 and 24.1 Watts, but with them enabled we were seeing between 20.5 to 21.2 Watts. Both numbers are impressive as you have to keep in mind that the whole system is being measures here with a Kill-A-Watt power meter at the wall outlet..."

Posted by: STAFF
It's clear that Haswell has been designed with mobile devices in mind. For products like (convertible) Ultrabooks, Haswell has useful new improvements, such as the lower (idle) energy consumption. Haswell is also the generation which finally allows Intel to compete with AMD when it comes to integrated graphics.

Haswell Debuts: Intel Core i7-4770K Review
     Wed, Jun 26 2013 | 4:02P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Regular TechSpot readers will have no doubt spotted several mentions of Haswell on our front page this year. In the past few months we have covered everything from model names to performance and battery life claims. A key focus has been Haswell's graphics, with rumors suggesting its performance is set to be 2 to 3 times that of current HD 4000 integrated graphics. So what is Haswell exactly? It is Intel’s 4th generation Core architecture which will see a major refresh of the entire Core i3, Core i5 and Core i7 product lineup in 2013. Whereas last year’s Ivy Bridge was a "tick" release, Haswell is a tock and traditionally that's meant a more significant advance forward.

How I Fell (Back) In Love With the Desktop PC:
     Wed, Jun 26 2013 | 4:00P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
True confession: Until recently, I never owned a desktop PC. My parents had one when I was in high school that I used (primarily to email girls), but once I hit college, it was laptops all the way. I always needed to have a mobile machine to work on, hopping from class, to a job, to the library, to another job, and back to the dorm, so a desktop never made sense. Besides, who had space in a cramped dorm room for a bulky tower and monitor combo anyway? Even when I entered the tech industry, I worked in an office setting where we used notebooks connected to external monitors instead of desktops, and the only actual desktop PCs I used were builds I put together to test hardware in the lab. Fast forward a few years, and I'm now in the pantheon of lucky SOBs that work from home. When you work from home, the entire house is your office, which makes having a lappie that much more magical. (Edit product photos in bed while Monday Night Football is on in the background? Don't mind if I do!) However, over the months I began to notice something: I started using the desktop(s) down in my test lab more than my laptop. Much more...

“Today we are looking at a new arrival from NZXT. It is a successor to the Sentry Mix, and appropriately labeled the Sentry Mix 2.

Also on the test bench today is another new arrival from NZXT, it’s called the NZXT Grid.

Let’s take a closer look.”
