An Upgrade Story: Can the GTX 750 Ti Convert OEMs PCs to Gaming PCs?
     Tue, Feb 25 2014 | 5:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Look at these numbers! Usually when we compare graphics performance between different GPUs we are talking in the 5-10% range as being a big deal. Take a look at our review of the GeForce GTX 750 Ti and how it compares to the Radeon R7 260X and you`ll see that pattern of logic repeated over and over. In our article today we saw increases as high as 10.2x - an order of magnitude increase in the average frame rate!! Bioshock Infinite on the Lenovo H520 went from a completely unplayable mess to an ultra-smooth 1920x1080 title with plenty of room for image quality increases."

ASUS GTX 750 Ti OC 2 GB @ techPowerUp
     Tue, Feb 25 2014 | 5:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Unlike most other GTX 750 Tis, ASUS has placed an additional 6-pin power connector on their GTX 750 Ti OC, which promises improved overclocking potential, and maybe even better out of the box performance due to GPU Boost. The card is also extremely quiet thanks to its dual fan thermal solution."

8 PCIe & SATA M.2 SSDs Test ASRocks Fatal1ty 990FX Killer AM3+ AMD MotherBoard
     Tue, Feb 25 2014 | 2:55P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To be frank, we started testing with two thoughts in mind, the first naturally wanting to confirm that we could attain PCIe 2.0 X2 performance, and the second was to validate that the M.2 connector could automatically detect M.2 SSD type and switch off, whether it be PCIe X2 or SATA 3. From there, well we just kept testing M.2 SSD after M.2 SSD until we ran out, eight in total and one that didnt want to cooperate with the AMD chipset."

ADATA CE700 Qi Wireless Charging Stand - BCCHardware
     Tue, Feb 25 2014 | 2:55P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One thing that makes the CE700 stand out above the competition is the fact that it actually stands. There aren`t many other Qi products that charge your device standing up as most of them - all of the ones that Ive seen in fact - are simply pads that you can lay your device on. The CE700 operates this way if desired, but also can convert to a stand that will support tablets as well as phones."

ADATA PV100 4200mAh Power Bank Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Feb 25 2014 | 2:55P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our mobile products are like our lifeline. If our smartphone or tablet dies we sort of feel lost. The thing is with our mobile devices they are dependent on their batteries. If you dont use your device that much during the day you can go a full day on a charge, but most people need to charge their device throughout the day. What if you are on the road or in a place where a wall outlet is not available? That is where Power Banks come in. Today we will be checking out ADATAs PV100 4200mAh Power Bank. It has a slim design and 2.1A power output so it should charge your devices quite fast. Read on as we take a look"

Fractal Design Arc XL review
     Tue, Feb 25 2014 | 12:52P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,We review the Fractal Design Arc XL, it is a notch bigger and better as far as we are concerned. This all black and white chassis comes with plenty of cooling options, great design and aesthetics and is so big that it will even house the biggest motherboards. This product is made with airflow and liquid cooling in mind to serve the more performance oriented PCs. You`ll be excited about storage, style, USB 3.0 options and an even integrated three-speed fan controller."

Upgrading an Old Dell Latitude Laptop to 802.11AC Wireless @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Feb 25 2014 | 9:30A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Our Dell Latitude E6410 has been a workhorse in the Legit Bunkers since we purchased it a few years ago. It was never designed to be a desktop replacement, but it is very capable in the field as it is light and is just solid with everything we throw at it. Lately, we have been working with very large video and image files in the office and since we connect via wireless, we are starting to get a bit impatient with the wireless transfer speeds. For less than $30.00, we were able to pick up an Intel 2-antenna 802.11ac wireless adapter from Newegg. The Intel 7260 HMW Dual-Band Mini PCI Express combo adapter is rated to work at speeds up to 867Mbps over 5.0 GHz and 300Mbps over 2.4 GHz bandwidths. Read on to see what happens to performance after the update!"
