Fellowes AeraMax DX55 Air Purifier Review
     Mon, Mar 10 2014 | 9:03A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
One of the great things about the Fellowes is that it uses a negligible amount of electricity and is practically silent. I feel satisfied that I can get some dust removal without adding to the noise already in the room.

Blizzard will launch Reaper of Souls
     Sat, Mar 01 2014 | 9:01A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In about six weeks, Blizzard will launch Reaper of Souls, the first expansion pack for Diablo 3. I've spent the last few weeks playing in the beta for RoS, and while I normally hold an article this extensive for a launch, there's enough locked-in differences to be worth discussing at this stage. This new expansion comes with the usual slew of goodies -- a new Act for the game, new quests, a new enchanting ability, and a new skill for each existing class, as well as a new Crusader class to experiment with. All of this falls into the "expected" category. What's more important about Reaper of Souls is that it makes core changes to the way Diablo III feels and plays, changes that, in aggregate, have made the game a great deal more fun...

Mobile Devices in the Workplace: What is at Risk?
     Fri, Feb 28 2014 | 4:04P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Let?s face it, smart phones and tablets have become a common part of life. It is not unusual to walk into a place and see a majority of the people with their eyes down, totally engrossed in a mobile device. This is something that happens out in everyday life and is becoming increasingly more common in the workplace. Laptops and desktops are starting to be replaced by tablets and laptop-tablet hybrids. No matter the business industry, just like computers, tablets and smartphones are becoming essential in almost all areas of business. Even if your business does not directly require your employees to have these devices to work, they are being introduced into your environment because they can assist in productivity."

OCC 2013 Products of the Year
     Mon, Feb 24 2014 | 8:31A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This years winner is MSI`s Dragon themed Z87-GD65 GAMING motherboard. MSI put together a solid product that will appeal to gamers and enthusiasts alike, all at a very reasonable MSRP of $189. While having great looks with a black and red color theme, this motherboard is built to meet or exceed the MIL-STD-810G standards, which is reflected in the parts used such as Super Ferrite Chokes that run at up to 35 C lower temperatures, have a 30% higher current handling capacity, and a 20% improvement in power efficiency; Tantalum filled Hi-C Caps that are up to 93% efficient; and Dark Capacitors that feature Lower ESR and a ten-year lifespan all tied into a PCB with improved temperature and humidity protections. The experience with MSI`s Click BIOS was painless and the abundance of fine-tuning settings allowed for great overclocking results of 4.7GHz on the CPU and 2600MHz on the RAM."

Core Mantle Questions: Interview with AMDs Guennadi Riguer
     Sat, Feb 15 2014 | 11:09A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The current Mantle solution relies on the same shader generation path games the DirectX uses and includes an open-source component for translating DirectX shaders to Mantle accepted intermediate language (IL). This enables developers to quickly develop Mantle code path without any changes to the shaders. This was one of the strongest requests we got from our ISV partners when we were developing Mantle."

Take me to your Leaderboard - Holiday 2013 Build Guides
     Sun, Jan 12 2014 | 9:02A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the High End system comes a lot more budgetary freedom while still remaining less expensive than a comparable boutique system. The processor is fastest Haswell processor currently available, the unlocked 4770K running at 3.5GHz stock with the potential to overclock it even further. The motherboard paired with this processor is the ASUS Z87-EXPERT which features a lot of added functionality even for a high end Z87 board. You get the ability to use two of the three PCIe 16 slots at 8x if you pick up a second GPU which will offer enough bandwidth for you to get the most from your investments. Eight SATA 6Gbps ports and eight USB 3.0 ports allow plenty of peripherals to be attached and built in WiFi frees you from needing proximity to your router but the most unique feature is Thunderbolt support, something not many boards offer."

Posted by: STAFF
AMD demoed its "free sync" alternative to G-Sync on laptops. Desktop displays are different, Nvidia says, and they may not support the variable refresh rate tech behind AMD's solution—at least not yet.
