NETGEAR XS708E ProSafe Plus 10GbE Switch @ Benchmark Reviews
     Fri, Jun 21 2013 | 3:52A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The cell phone and Ethernet are 40 years old this year and both are omnipresent in our digital lives. Like many elements of today`s consumer tech, Ethernet was developed at XEROX PARC and then commercialized elsewhere. Ethernet came to the PC in 1982, with a bandwidth cap of 10 Megabits per second; most consumers and small businesses are now operating at 1Gb/s speeds. That will change soon to 10Gb/s, if the NETGEAR XS708E 10GbE Switch is any indication. Its eight RJ-45 ports are designed to interface with common Cat 6 wiring, and it also has one SFP+ port to handle fiber optic connections. Benchmark Reviews brings you an inside look at a break-out offering in the NETGEAR ProSAFE Plus Switch line, which brings 10GbE connectivity down to the masses."

Tt eSPORTS SHOCK Dynamite Orange Gaming Headset
     Thu, Jun 20 2013 | 4:53P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I don`t know if it has something to do with the increasing number of professional gaming teams coming out around every corner (a trend i will probably never figure out) but so far inside the first 6 months of 2013 we`ve witnessed the introduction of more gaming headsets than we did during the entire 2012. Personally i enjoy using headphones while listening to music but they are not my primary choice/preference when watching a movie or playing games (I prefer my complete A/V surround sound systems for that) although i have to acknowledge that a good gaming headset can be of extreme use especially if you are not living alone and you don`t want to disturb others while playing your favorite game title which is exactly why i have assigned one gaming headset for each of my gaming systems including my main Toshiba Qosmio laptop. Todays review is about one such product and more precisely the SHOCK Dynamite Orange Gaming Headset by our friends over at Tt eSPORTS."

GTX 780 Overclocking Guide
     Thu, Jun 20 2013 | 4:02P | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The performance gains to be had from overclocking a GTX 780 are likely dramatic enough to overtake an NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan and beyond. Frame rates are much improved across the board and in my view, brings the GTX 780 to a whole new performance tier.

Gigabyte G1.Sniper 5 (Z87) Motherboard Review
     Thu, Jun 20 2013 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the years we've seen more and more products aimed at gamers and Gigabyte have harnessed this very well, as they cater for gamers in more ways than one. This stems from their VGA range, to their peripherals, gaming notebooks and of course gaming related motherboards. Their motherboards aimed at gamers have for the past few years been branded under the G1-Killer series and have to say the least been very successful. I have to be honest as well, due to me having a bit of a soft spot for the complete range due to its amazing colour scheme and key gaming features, which generally includes improved audio, multi-GPU support and improved networking capabilities. With the launch of the Z87 chipset and Haswell 4th generation processors, we find some new models being added to this range, which leads us to the G1.Sniper 5 board that we have with us today, but does it offer up anything new with thanks to the new Z87 chipset? That's what we are here to find out today, and with a huge box presenting the board, we can only assume that it comes with a mammoth amount of accessories.

Intel 4th Generation Core Processor " Haswell" i7 4770K Review @
     Thu, Jun 20 2013 | 3:32P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Over the years Intel has managed to consecutively launch a new architecture, living up to their aggressive "Tick-Tock" strategy and today’s launch of their 4th generation Core Processors code named “Haswell” falls under the “Tick” category, meaning we are looking at a new micro-architecture that includes a new graphics core, AVX2 instructions and dispatch ports.

Elite A-Series APU processors
     Thu, Jun 20 2013 | 3:25P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Elite A-Series APU processors, aka Richland. This new lineup of APUs for desktops naturally still feature integrated AMD graphics, and clocks for both the CPU and GPU have increased in nearly all cases. Fortunately the exception doesn't lie in both of the quad-core Richland APUs we've got on the review bench today: the unlocked A10-6800K featuring a 4.1GHz core clock (base) and the A10-6700 ringing in at 4.3GHz. Factoring in Richland's promise to better reach advertised Turbo clocks, and we could be looking at a 5-25 percent increase in performance. The integrated GPUs (HD 8670D for both APUs) meanwhile are clocked 5-11 percent higher than previous generation Trinity equivalents. With the A10-6800K's suggested pricing alone coming in at $40 less than Core i5 Haswell CPUs from Intel, AMD looks to continue the trend of offering just the right amount of potential for the right price. Hit our review to see how competitve AMD's new generation of desktop APUs are!
