News: More light bulbs? Yep more light bulbs
     Sun, May 25 2014 | 9:08A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Internet is a strange and wonderful place. A couple of months ago, I posted a Friday night topic on light bulbs that incited a fair amount of discussion. Not long after that, I kid you not, I started receiving press releases and phone calls from the world`s light-bulb brands, as if it made perfect sense for a website with the tagline PC hardware explored to be writing about LEDs versus CFLs. This is a dangerous development."

Posted by: STAFF
We`ve got an exciting System Guide update this time around. The CPU market has broken out of its rut, a spate of new motherboards has arrived, and Radeons have returned to their intended prices at last. Not only that, but we`ve followed reader feedback and broadened our CPU, case, and power supply recommendations, as well. The result is perhaps our best and most thorough guide yet."

Happy Hour Timepieces The Ish Watch Review @ TestFreaks
     Thu, May 08 2014 | 1:47A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today I have something a bit different for review, its a watch, but not just any watch as its from a company called Happy Hour Timepieces. The name of the watch is The Ish and the idea behind this companies watches is happy hour or 5pm when the work day ends and you finally get chance to relax and enjoy happy hour as it were. The Ish watch is very unique in two ways specifically, the first is that the dial is actually hazy or foggy except for the magical number 5 which is all that counts right?! The second thing that makes The Ish unique is that it has a built-in bottle opener, the clasp is actually heavy duty and its designed to open a bottle with just a twist of your wrist. Those are just two things, but overall the The Ish is very nice, its well made and it looks great. Read on to learn more.."

News: TRs April 2014 Peripheral Staff Picks
     Thu, Apr 17 2014 | 9:12A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we introduced our new System Guide format in February, we cut out peripherals in order to focus more closely on internal PC components. Our plan was to revisit keyboards, mice, displays, and such things in a separate guide, which we would be free to flesh out a little more and update as needed, independently of the already lengthy System Guide. Today, that plan comes to fruition. Welcome to our first Peripheral Staff Picks."

Qualcomm Announces Next-Gen Snapdragon 808 And 810 SoCs
     Sat, Apr 12 2014 | 12:01P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week, we took a trip to San Diego to meet with Qualcomm and discuss the company's cutting edge 20nm radios and upcoming Snapdragon processors. Unlike the already-launched Snapdragon 801 and 805, these are fundamentally new chips with updated CPU cores as well as Qualcomm's new Adreno 400-class GPU. Qualcomm is announcing two new chips today -- the Snapdragon 808 and the Snapdragon 810. The 810 will be the highest-end solution, with a quad-core ARM Cortex-A57 paired alongside four Cortex-53 CPUs... The 808 will also use a big.Little design, but the core layouts will be asymmetric -- two Cortex-A57's paired with four Cortex-A53's. The Cortex-A57 is, by all accounts, an extremely capable processor -- which means a pair of them in a dual-core configuration should be more than capable of driving a high-end smartphone. Read-on here to get our full scoop...

OCZ Storage Solutions Interview with Alex Mei, CMO
     Mon, Mar 31 2014 | 9:01A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To say OCZ has had a tumultuous year would be putting it mildly, to say the least. The company took a brutal beating and was knocked down, but not out. Now, thanks to an acquisition by Toshiba, the newly formed and revitalized OCZ Storage Solutions, is poised and ready to make another run at enthusiasts and the enterprise. In an effort to clear up some of the rumors and hear what Toshiba's OCZ Storage Solutions has in store, we reached out to OCZ's CMO, Alex Mei. Here's what he had to say:

Without doubt, Thermaltake is a Marmite company. Some people absolutely adore it, while others are just as vocal in the opposite direction.

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.
