X-Doria Dash Folio Spin Case for Samsung Galaxy S5 Review @ TestFreaks
     Sun, May 11 2014 | 3:54P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today I am reviewing a case for the Samsung Galaxy S5 made by X-Doria. This particular model is the Dash Folio Spin. One thing I have noticed on the S5 and having had the S4 other than the large screen and the beautiful 5.1 Full HD Super AMOLED Display (On the S5) is that the phone looks particularly frail and so a case that surrounds the phone and protects it from all sides seems to be a needed accessory. And as you will find I am a simple and humble man, I have simple and humble dreams and so arrived this case "

Radeon R9 295X2 CrossFire at 4K - Quad Hawaii GPU Powerhouse
     Sun, May 11 2014 | 9:05A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There is no doubt in my mind that the dual Radeon R9 295X2 (Quad CrossFire) configuration that we have tested and shown you here today is the fastest gaming setup that a PC user can buy today. Having 11,264 stream processors at your command through four full-speed AMD Hawaii GPUs gives the user an unparalleled amount of capability for PC games, including running them at top image quality settings at 4K resolutions. In the games where CrossFire shined the most we saw scaling rates of 81% in Battlefield 4, 89% in Crysis 3 and 89% in Tomb Raider. Those would be great results if we were moving from a single GPU to a set of two, but to see those kinds of gains going from 2 GPUs to 4 GPUs is actually a more impressive feat."

Posted by: STAFF
In our 3-way SLI gaming performance scaling articles we`re going to investigate 3-way SLI scaling factors with different CPUs and different clock speeds. In eight recent games and two theoretical benchmarks we want to find out what difference 3-way SLI makes, when we run benchmarks with the CPU at stock clocks as well as overclocked to 4.5 GHz. Let`s kick off with an Intel 3960X CPU and three ASUS GTX 780 DirectCU II graphics cards and find out what the differences are going to be like."

     Sat, May 10 2014 | 3:54P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink

PNY Optima SSD Series Review (240 GB) New Controller and a Wicked Price
     Sat, May 10 2014 | 11:43A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some time ago, Silicon Motion had sent us a new SSD controller they were working on a prototype SSD for review. The SM2246EN controller that we looked at was a four channel SATA 3 controller, capable of 510MB/s read and 410MB/s write with up to 80K IOPS, also capable of 256-Bit AES encryption. Up until this report, that was as close as that controller had gotten to the retail market. Our report today looks at a brand new release in the PNY Optima, the Optima being the first SSD to contain the Silicon Motion SM2246EN SATA 3 controller that we are aware of. Just to give you a bit of a heads up, the Optima is trying to win the race of performance with this entry, but it has a price that is truly hard to beat."
