ASUS Maximus VII Ranger Review @ ocaholic
     Mon, Jun 02 2014 | 8:35A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Intel introduced their Z87 Chipset almost one year ago, ASUS decided to round-off the lower end of their Maximus portfolio with the Maximus VI Hero. Meanwhile Intel has launched the Z97 chipset and they`re again expanding their ROG lineup by another entry level model. This time the board is called Maximus VII Ranger and the new model marks the entry into ASUS`s ROG class. With this board the worlds largest motherboard maker is targeting mainly gamers and therefore there should be quite a few interesting features."

Logitech G502 Proteus Core @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Jun 01 2014 | 10:56A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A good portion of Logitechs most recent product introductions have really just been refreshes of old products. The G602 wireless mouse was really the only fully new design to come from Logitech in a few years up until very recently. Not too long before I went on vacation Logitech introduced their newest mouse the G502 Proteus Core. Not only is the G502 a completely new product, but it is also the only Logitech Gaming product to also include a name beyond their standard G naming scheme. That must mean that the G502 is something special to them and they really wanted it to stand out. Today I am going to take a look at the G502 Proteus Core to see what its all about and find out if it is worth getting excited about, lets dig in."

Genius Ergo 8800 Wireless Mouse Review @ Bigbruin.com
     Sun, Jun 01 2014 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Genius Ergo 8800 Wireless Mouse is well built and incorporates all the features you would expect to find in your typical mouse. It has a fairly traditional design for universal (right-handed) comfort and it doesn`t do anything extra that would require special software or setup time. Pretty much a plug and play device that is well suited for desktop use and perhaps some casual gaming."

ASUS Maximus VII Gene Review @ ocaholic
     Sun, Jun 01 2014 | 8:35A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Maximus VII Gene, ASUS shows their next generation mATX gaming and overclocking motherboard, which is based on Intels upcoming Z97 chipset. Like it`s predecessor this board wants to convince with a balanced feature mix that pleases overclockers as well as gamers. At this point we`re very curious what ASUS has come up with regarding layout, design and obviously features."

ASUS Z97I-Plus Review @ ocaholic
     Sat, May 31 2014 | 4:26P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the Z97I-Plus, ASUS has another interesting mini-ITX motherboard in its portfolio. Lying in front of us, we have a very compact and well equipped motherboard, which for example received an M.2 slot. Other than that there are quite a few software features, which is rather usual with higher-end motherboards these days. With their new Z97 mothboard ASUS have also reworked the color scheme of their classic sereis motherboards and they`re now way less flashy. "

OCZ Vertex 460 (240GB) review @ Bjorn3d.com
     Sat, May 31 2014 | 4:05P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The acquisition of OCZ by Toshiba at the beginning of this year has put the company in a very interesting position. OCZ now joins the likes of Intel and Samsung where it not only makes its own controller but also NAND chip. This means OCZ SSDs can now all build with in house components. While OCZ continues to use third party controllers (SandForce to be specific) on their enterprise SSDs, they have switched the NAND on these drives from Intel/Micron to Toshiba. For the consumer market, the in house Indilinx controller is the sole controller and like the enterprise drives, the NANDs on these drives are also gone through the transition to the Toshiba NANDs. We first saw it with the Vector 150 that is the successor to the last years Vector. The Vertex 460 that we have here today is essentially the successor to the Vertex 450 with the 19nm Toshiba NAND.

ASRock Z97 Extreme6 Tests Samsung XP941 M.2 x4 Plextor M6e M.2 x2 and Samsung 840 Pro SATA 3 SSDs
     Sat, May 31 2014 | 8:35A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To anyone not familiar with SSDs, our title might not seem that striking, but it represents a huge step forward in storage technology within a very short time. It also speaks highly of ASRock for again leading the way in advancing storage, as they are the only to incorporate a new SSD innovation into their Extreme 6 motherboard; this of course being a PCIe Gen 3 x4 interface that could accommodate M.2 SSDs up to blazing 32GB/s speeds. Although it may be some time until we get such a small form factor SSD travelling at that speed, this does mean that the Extreme6 is the only motherboard in the world that can accommodate our Samsung XP941 as a boot drive today. In fact today, we are going to be testing not only that XP941, but also the Plextor M6e PCIe x2 SSD and the Samsung 840 Pro SATA 3 SSD."

ASUS Z97-Pro Wi-Fi ac Preview @ ocaholic
     Fri, May 30 2014 | 4:26P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the ASUS Z97-Pro Wi-Fi ac, ASUS have yet another interesting motherboard in it`s portfolio, which is based on Intels latest Z97 chipset. We find for instance SATA Express as well as M.2 and there is even a beefed-up audio solution. Other than that ASUS have been working on the design once more and in our opinion these board appeal to a much wider audience than the previous generation."
