TechPowerUp 4K Gaming Build Guide
     Fri, Oct 09 2015 | 5:20P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With 4K Ultra HD displays fast becoming essential to high-end gaming PC builds, we take a crack at building a 4K gaming desktop ready for the DirectX 12 generation of games.

Oculus Rift Virtual Reality Walkthrough
     Fri, Oct 09 2015 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Virtual reality is easily one of the most exciting frontiers in gaming and technology right now. We stand on the cusp of entering a whole new universe which we can explore not with a mouse and keyboard, but with our eyes, ears and – when the hardware is released – hands. But while long time fans of companies like Oculus are on tenterhooks awaiting the pre-order date for the first consumer headset, there are still plenty of exciting VR developments happening day to day.

Ultra HD gaming in Ultra Quality settings?
     Fri, Oct 09 2015 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today’s offering at Hardware.Info consists of benchmarks and more benchmarks, but not just any old benchmarks. We took four GTX 980 Ti graphics cards and put them through their paces in SLI, 3-way and 4-way SLI configurations, on an overclocked Haswell-E platform, using a ton of different games and testing in 3 resolutions as well as 2 quality setting. Just how many GTX 980 Ti’s do you need for Ultra HD gaming in Ultra Quality settings? That’s what you – and your readers – can learn from this article.

Ozone Argon Ocelote World
     Wed, Sep 30 2015 | 1:08P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Ozone's Argon Ocelote World mouse is a reskin of the Argon, Ozone's top-of-the-line gaming mouse. For around €50, it offers the same ambidextrous ergonomics design, an 8200 DPI laser sensor, and physical feature set as the regular Argon in a striking orange color theme.

Rainbow Six Siege closed beta preview @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Sep 30 2015 | 1:07P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Only a few months have passed since Ubisoft announced at E3 that Terrorist Hunts would be returning in Rainbow Six Siege. Messages immediately blew up between our small gaming group. The three of us have been gaming together for a long time; at least a decade, if not more. When Rainbow Six: Vegas 2 released in 2008, we networked together a couple of Xbox 360s and played Terrorist Hunts endlessly. Eventually we migrated to the the PC and spent countless hours progressing our characters, unlocking weapons, and hunting terrorists all over again. Ubisoft would stop officially supporting online matchmaking, but it’s still possible to play online (we had to try after hearing the announcement).

Warhammer 40,000
     Wed, Sep 30 2015 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Warhammer 40,000: Regicide combines characters and gameplay elements from the bleak, bloody Warhammer universe with the rules of a decidedly more strait-laced game: chess. We spent some quality time with this game to see how much fun can be had in Hammerfall Publishing's mash-up.

NZXT Doko Review
     Mon, Sep 28 2015 | 12:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NZXT Doko is a gaming device that extends the range of your gaming PC so you can sit back in comfort and play games on your TV. The idea is that your gaming PC is over there, probably near your router, while your TV is some distance away, probably in a different room. You need to connect Doko to your router using Ethernet with the HDMI output used to connect to your TV. Then, when you run a utility called Sender on your PC, Doko is able to mirror your PC display on your TV.

Killing Floor 2 - NVIDIA FleX Technology
     Sat, Sep 26 2015 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If you every played the original Killing Floor you know that it was one game that would be considered an incredible gore fest. Killing Floor 2 brings that back with an even more intensity. Killing Floor 2 starts shortly after the end of the original and is set in Europe where the failed experiments of the Horzine biotech company have taken hold."

Corsair Strafe Gaming Keyboard
     Fri, Sep 25 2015 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair's newest mechanical keyboard is dubbed the Strafe and features per-key back lighting, among other tricks. It is equipped with Cherry MX-switches and is supported by the Corsair CUE driver suite. At US$109, this is one feature-packed keyboard for the price.

the Xbox One and for Windows 10 PCs
     Fri, Sep 25 2015 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Quote: "Do the results in today's test change any opinions I have on graphics card selections for buyers looking to make changes in the near term? Not to any great degree, but I will say the Radeon R9 390X continues to look better and better (especially with the price advantage) when compared to the GeForce GTX 980. Unfortunately for AMD though, the Fury X is still slower than the GeForce GTX 980 Ti keeping the flagship performance title with NVIDIA."

how Legends performs on the latest graphics cards.
     Fri, Sep 25 2015 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Fable Legends is one of the first games to make use of DirectX 12, and it produces some truly sumptuous visuals. Here's a look at how Legends performs on the latest graphics cards.

Thrustmaster TX F458 Italia Edition
     Thu, Sep 24 2015 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Thrustmaster TX F458 Italia Edition is overall an outstanding wheel that takes the racing experience up a couple of notches from my previous wheel, not to mention a totally different experience from a keyboard, joystick, or a non-FFB wheel. Some of the fit and finish could be improved, but I can understand the choices that were made to achieve the price point that Thrustmaster was aiming for."

Razer Mamba Chroma Tournament Edition Review
     Sun, Sep 20 2015 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Razer has gone whole hog on the Chroma gaming devices and this month they sent us a Razer Mamba Chroma Tournament edition with a 5G 16000DPI Laser Sensor. Capable of moving an amazing 210 inches per second at 50G with up to 1000MHz ultra polling and on the fly sensitivity (DPI) adjustments on the mouse itself. Just last month we shot a feedback letter to Razer on DPI on the fly and how impotent it is to a true competition quality mouse and lo and behold they had one on the drawing board already. This is another righty mouse so you left-handed people are going to miss out on a killer offering from Razer. The Razer Mamba Chroma Tournament edition has a 4 way scroll wheel for up down left and right scrolling and it’s programmable so you get the equivalent of 4 more programmable keys.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
     Sat, Sep 19 2015 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Almost a year after Ground Zeroes we have a new Metal Gear Solid V title and this time around it shipped simultaneously for PC and console players on September 1. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was built using the same Fox Engine so you can expect to see subsurface scattering, physically-based rendering and other impressive technologies. Using the latest AMD and Nvidia drivers, we tested 26 DirectX 11 graphics cards covering most price ranges.

Corsair VOID Wireless Gaming Headset Review
     Sat, Sep 19 2015 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the world of computer peripherals and hardware, most of us are well aware of Corsair’s existence. This is an organization that has well-earned reputation for producing quality components; components that are going to be high-performing, intelligently designed, and very likely to provide its owners with years of service. Therefore, it is no surprise that when Corsair develops a new product, such as the Corsair VOID Wireless Dolby 7.1 Gaming Headset, it doesn’t take long before it is in high demand.

Scuf Gaming 4PS Professional PlayStation 4 Controller Review
     Fri, Sep 18 2015 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It has been a few years since we reviewed a product from Scuf. We last saw their Scuf Xbox 360 Controller, which was pretty amazing, but let’s be honest, it’s a little out of date now and with new-er consoles already on the market, we figured we’d take a look at something a little more modern. We have in the eTeknix office today, the Scuf Gaming 4PS, a heavily modded PlayStation 4 controller designed for the competitive gamer, be that a pro gaer, or someone who just likes to give their friends a good thrashing.
