Intel Bay Trail NUC Linux Performance Preview
     Fri, Feb 14 2014 | 2:59P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week on Phoronix I shared my initial impressions of the Intel Bay Trail NUC Kit when running Ubuntu Linux. I`ve been impressed by the size, features, and price of this barebones Intel system sporting a low-power SoC with built-in HD Graphics capabilities that work well under Linux. Here`s some early CPU benchmarks for those trying to gauge the Intel Celeron N2820 performance under Ubuntu."

Humble Bundle: PC and Android 8 Review
     Tue, Jan 28 2014 | 8:31A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Of the beat-the-average games, I find Anomaly 2 to be worth the price alone. It is a strong title and a solid experience, and I have not even played it all the way through! Hero Academy could also be worth it, but only if you can take advantage of the multiplayer. Without friends or a willingness to play with strangers, the single-player is just not compelling enough to warrant a purchase."

Leap Motion Review
     Mon, Aug 26 2013 | 9:03A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Leap Motion touts its controller as a new paradigm in human input devices, allowing users to wave, swipe and poke their way through a digital world otherwise meant for keyboards, mice and touchscreens. The miniscule gadget barely measures larger than a USB flash drive, however inside the Leap you'll find two cameras and three infrared LEDs capable of tracking hand and finger movements in all three spatial dimensions. Making use of motion-sensing technology to interact with your computer is at least refreshing, if not magical.

Windows 8 RTC Bug fixed @ Ocaholic
     Fri, Aug 23 2013 | 12:16P | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As soon as the Windows 8 RTC issue appeared, we started our own investigation and found out, that only Intel setups were affected. But still there were quite a few questions unanswered like for example: which timer is Windows 8 actually using, are there really no issues on AMD and why is the issue fixed, when you move to an Intel when you installed Windows 8 using an AMD platform? Credit also goes to Franck D. from CPUID, who was kind enough to provide us with a tool to read out different timers and their frequency."

Remember Me @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Aug 02 2013 | 8:30A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The action-adventure genre has been getting a decent amount of attention lately with the Batman Arkham games as well as more recent titles like Tomb Raider and Devil May Cry. Remember Me is a title in this same mold from Capcom and Dontnod Entertainment that looks to balance the standard mix of platforming, exploration and combat along with a few unique tricks up its sleeve to deliver us an entertaining experience in a sci-fi dystopia based around the interesting concept of memory transfer. Will this offering prove memorable or fall flat in its attempt? Join me as we take a look."

Ubuntu 13.10 Can Outperform OS X 10.9 On Intel OpenGL
     Tue, Jul 30 2013 | 10:08A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With Apple`s OS X 10.9 Mavericks having better OpenGL performance and in compliance with OpenGL 4.1 rather than being GL3-limited as with existing OS X releases, new benchmarks were carried out at Phoronix to see how well Apple`s OpenGL driver stack on the current OS X 10.9 developer preview compared to Ubuntu Linux when testing the Intel graphics driver."

Adobe Lightroom 5 Remembers its Roots @ Techgage
     Fri, Jul 26 2013 | 9:05A | Software | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For the first time since its launch in 2007, the newest version of Adobe Lightroom focuses on refining the experience for photographers with a few well-built features rather than packing in a bunch of cruft that most of us didnt want. It may not boast a big list of new items, but the features that are here help establish LR 5 as the best yet."

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.

The Gigabyte GA-X79-UD5 is an awesome 'Sandy Bridge-E' motherboard for anyone in the business of content creation, yet still nimble enough to take on multi-videocard gaming and overclocking at the end of a days work.
