MSI GTX 650Ti BOOST OC Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Jun 07 2013 | 11:46A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The NVIDIA GTX650Ti BOOST faced heavy competition with AMD`s cost effective HD7850 so to even up the score, we will be testing MSI`s overclocked GTX650TI BOOST against a similarly overclocked HD7850 and budget HD7970 in today`s review to find out which card is not only the fastest, not only which offers best bang-per-buck but also, and perhaps most importantly, which offers the smoothest gameplay of all three entry level gaming graphics cards currently available."

EVGA GTX 770 SC 2GB with ACX Cooler Video Card Review @ HiTech Legion
     Fri, Jun 07 2013 | 11:35A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The EVGA GTX 770 Superclocked 2GB video card is equipped with EVGA`s revolutionary new ACX cooler designed to provide quieter and superior performance. The EVGA GTX 770 SC`s ACX cooler maintains a dual-slot design for efficient thermal properties in SLI mode. The EVGA ACX cooler is equipped with 40% higher fin volume and separated cooling subsystems so the double ball bearing fans can efficiently dissipate heat emitted by the GTX 770`s GK104 core and components while under load. The EVGA GTX 770 with ACX cooler is super clocked with a base of 1111MHz and boost of 1163MHz compared to the reference 1046 MHz base clock and the 1085 MHz boost clock. As with all EVGA video cards, the GeForce GTX 770 2GB Superclocked with ACX cooler video card comes packed with EVGA Precision X and OC Scanner software for further overclocking convenience. The EVGA GTX 770 Superclocked video card is covered under EVGA`s standard 3-year warranty and further warranty extensions are available for users who register their purchase within 30 days."

[Tech ARP] The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 Tech Report
     Fri, Jun 07 2013 | 10:53A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has the full complement of 1536 CUDA cores with a 40 MHz (4%) faster base clock and a 27 MHz (2.6%) faster boost clock. The only significant feature that the GeForce GTX 770 brings to the table is its 7 Gbps GDDR5 graphics memory - the fastest memory clock speed to date! This allows it to deliver a peak memory bandwidth of just over 224 GB/s, or 16.6% more than that of the GeForce GTX 680! Like the GeForce GTX TITAN and the *GeForce GTX 780 , it will also support the newer GPU Boost 2.0, which gives you more advanced controls for overclocking, fan control, and hardware monitoring."

The First Experience Of Intel Haswell On Linux
     Fri, Jun 07 2013 | 10:31A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Haswell is here, Haswell is here, Haswell is here!!! After talking for months about the Linux kernel and driver development for Intel`s Ivy Bridge successor, the heatsink can be lifted today on talking about Intel`s Haswell processor. For the past few weeks I have been running and benchmarking an Intel Core i7 4770K Haswell processor on Linux to mixed success. While the Haswell improvements are terrific, the Linux experience now is awaiting improvements."

     Fri, Jun 07 2013 | 8:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Z87-Deluxe Dual is ASUS` flagship model regarding the standard desktop models which support Intels latest Haswell CPUs. Therefore it`s able to score with a long featurelist as well as high quality components. Furthermore ASUS was brave enough to ditch their lovely black/blue color scheme for black/gold/yellow."

Metro: Last Light Review @ Techgage

Posted by: STAFF
Last Light is an interesting game. Its not directly tied to the book series like the original was, its been delayed numerous times, and has even changed developer hands. Given all this, does Last Lights emergence herald a new classic, or should it have stayed in the dark?"

ASUS GeForce GTX 780 Review @ Ocaholic
     Thu, Jun 06 2013 | 2:09P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today the NDA regarding NVIDIAs new GeForce GTX 780 is ending. In this context ASUS was kind enough to provide us with a reference card and obviously, we`ve had to check what this thing is actually capable of. The GTX 780, like the GeForce GTX Titan, is based on NVIDIA`s monstrous GK110 chip, which is made from 7.1 billion transistors. In case of the GTX 780 there are twelve SMX units activated and not 14 like you get with the GTX Titan. Nevertheless, this card is going to perform like hell."

Mad Catz R.A.T.M Wireless Mobile Gaming Mouse
     Thu, Jun 06 2013 | 12:35P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So far 4 great things have happened this month, first Ubisoft Montreal released Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon (retro FPS that no one saw coming), SOE gave 1 free premium month to all of their PlanetSide 2 players (both Free and Premium members), Metro Last Light by Deep Silver/4A Games finally made it to retail (after several unfortunate incidents that led to the dismantle of THQ and sale of their assets to several game developers/publishers) and finally Mad Catz launched both their M.O.U.S.9 and R.A.T.M Bluetooth wireless mice. Now as most of you are aware we did test the M.O.U.S.9 a few days ago which in the end left us with mixed impressions especially because of its rather low DPI and somewhat high price tag so although my quest for the perfect notebook wireless mouse continues it`s very possible that the R.A.T.M wireless mobile gaming mouse which we have here with us will be the one to rule them all."

MSI GTX 770 Gaming Review
     Thu, Jun 06 2013 | 12:14P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After seeing how well the GTX 780 performed and how it was replacing the GTX 680, you had to see the writing on the wall that the GTX 770 was going to fit into the stack at a level just above that of the GTX 680. And here we are after running the MSI GTX 770 through the test suite to find that it does indeed deliver a level of performance above that of the GTX 680, and in many cases above that of a well overclocked 6GB HD 7970. MSI brings a card to the table in its GTX 770 Gaming that is tailored for the gamer with a comprehensive package that fits just about every situation using its G.A.M.E. spirit. You get the (G)aming App for one touch over/underclocking, (A)dvanced thermal design with the Twin Frozr IV cooling, (M)ilitary Class components, and (E)xperience - Predator, MSI`s game capture software. Looking at each of the components of the G.A.M.E. spirit you can see how this philosophy works."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
