NVIDIA GTX 980 3-Way and 4-Way SLI Performance
     Mon, Oct 20 2014 | 4:22P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Multi-GPU gaming has always, and will likely always, present more problems to gamers than any single GPU solution will. With a single, fast GPU you will nearly always get 100% of your paid-for performance while going down the road of SLI or CrossFire always means there will be some sacrifice of individual GPU performance for the scalability you get. Our testing today with a set of four GeForce GTX 980 4GB reference cards proves that this is still indeed the case, despite claims from all parties involved that it would be better with this generation. Maybe it still can be, but drivers need to be optimized clearly."

ASUS GeForce GTX 970 STRIX OC Edition Review @ ocaholic
     Mon, Oct 20 2014 | 9:34A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Next to the GTX 980 STRIX, ASUS is also launching the GTX 970 STRIX graphics card today. As usual the GTX 970 is the smaller brother of the GTX 980 and it comes with a more attractive price but therefore offers a little less performance. There is also a custom design PCB as well as - apparently - ASUS STRIX cooler and overall this should be a rather punchy card."

Maxwell is here! GTX 980 is now revealed! @ Bjorn3D.com
     Mon, Oct 20 2014 | 9:14A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia always has a bit of flair when it comes to new launches and this newest launch is no different as they organized a special gaming/modding event based around the celebration of gaming as a whole over the massive expanse of years. GAME24 and MOD24 is the name of the celebration and this is also the main stage for the new product announcement of the new Maxwell Architecture GPU and of course the GTX 980 we are going to look at today. To top this off Nvidia is actually launching two cards: the flagship GTX 980 and the GTX 970 as well so lets dive in and see what Maxwell is all about!"

Nvidia GTX 980 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sun, Oct 19 2014 | 4:22P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia may have officially launched Maxwell with the GTX 750 Ti launch back in February, but I think we can all agree that things dont get really serious until they refresh their flagship card with the new architecture. Well the wait is over, Nvidia is taking the cover off of their new cards as you read this at their Game24 event. The new card is the GTX 980, this may come as a surprise seeing that the last generation of cards was the 700 series. Nvidia needed to sync their mobile and desktop GPUs, skipping 800 and jumping to the 900 series was the way to go about doing this."

LUXA2 GroovyR 360 Micro Wireless Wall Mount Speaker Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sun, Oct 19 2014 | 9:14A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
LUXA2 has been releasing quality accessories at an accelerated pace. GroovyR is their latest Bluetooth speaker, but theres a twist. Instead of being rectangular shaped like most Bluetooth speakers, GroovyR is a circle with a kick out stand that can hold your mobile phone, or allow GroovyR to be wall mounted. In addition to its unique appearance, it has a built-in microphone, 3.5mm input, and rechargeable battery. Lets get dirty into the details."

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
