(04-17-2014)

(04-11-2014)

CM Storm has proven once again that a quality gaming mouse doesn't have to carry a hefty price tag.

(04-07-2014)

SAMSUNG PN64E8000 64 INCH PLASMA SMART TV REVIEW

(11-28-2012)

Samsung's PN64E8000 Plasma Smart TV can be summed up as an easy purchase for the consumer that has the upgraded budget and is smart enough to see that with this one purchase you don't only get an upgradable fantastic livingroom display, but also a trimmed down home theater pc. Add on the additional features like voice and motion control, webcam, future processor upgrades, SMART TV functionality, WIFI, Samsung APPS, Games (Angry Birds) and the difference in price seems to dwindle to an investment that over time will be boiled down to a difference of mere pennies a day.

OCZ 240GB Vertex 460 solid state drive review @ OCIA.net

Posted by Nathan @ 3:30 AM (EDT)

One of the first announced products to come about as a result of Toshiba acquiring OCZ was the Vertex 460, a marriage of OCZ's Indilinx Barefoot 3 controller and Toshiba 19nm toggle flash memory. Advertising up to 545MB/s sequential reads and 525MB/s sequential writes and from 90,000 to 95,000 4K random IOPS, it appears as if OCZ is right back at the top of their game in the SSD market. Available in 120GB, 240GB and 480GB capacities with a three year warranty, the Vertex 460 joins the Vector 150 in OCZ's new lineup of consumer SSDs utilizing Toshiba's toggle NAND flash memory.

Thermaltake Urban T81 Full Tower @ NikKTech

Posted by Nathan @ 3:29 AM (EDT)

In a market filled with all kinds of PC Cases by a huge number of manufacturers we all know how hard it is for someone to pick the right one for the job especially if price is of a concern. The reason i mentioned price should be quite obvious so if you're aiming to get one of the most expensive towers in the market then you currently only have a handful of choices to pick from by just a few of the leading manufacturers. On the other hand if you're on a budget things get tougher since most manufacturers out there aim for the masses and not enthusiasts, serious gamers and professionals so the number of available choices skyrockets. Primarily Thermaltake also seeks to win over the masses but from time to time they too release high quality and feature rich PC Cases aimed at serious consumers and the brand new Urban T81 Full Tower which has been with us for roughly a week now certainly wants to get in their ranks.

NVIDIA GeForce 337.50 Beta Driver Comparison @ Neoseeker

Posted by Nathan @ 3:28 AM (EDT)

NVIDIA claimed a performance increase of up to 64% in single GPU DirectX 11 performance and up to 71% for SLI setups. According to NVIDIA's announcement, which can be read here, these gains are achieved by optimising single-GPU DirectX 11 performance and globally reducing CPU overhead for the majority of DirectX 9, DirectX 10, and DirectX 11 games. These are very bold claims indeed, which created a wave of controversy across the net. To shed some light into the matter, we decided to run the new NVIDIA GeForce 337.50 Beta drivers through some intensive game-benchmarking, 100% in-house, for your reading enjoyment.

Posted by Nathan @ 3:27 AM (EDT)

Up for review today I have another portable battery for mobile devices and it’s a big one at 11000mAh in capacity but what’s even more interesting is that it has five USB ports which you can use all at the same time. The battery doesn’t really have any specific name, it’s from a company called Lumsing that makes many different products, this battery being just one of them. The Lumsing battery has five USB ports but they all vary in output from .5A up to 2.1A so you can charge a multitude of devices from small Bluetooth headphones up to tablets. Read on to learn more…

Standing just 69mm tall, the Raijintek Pallas CPU cooler is probably the largest low profile heatsink Frostytech as tested in recent memory. Raijintek's low profile Pallas heatsink is constructed around six 6mm diameter copper heatpipes and a 120x140mm array of nickel-plated aluminum fins. A chunky copper base plate helps spread the heat to the six heatpipes.

NVIDIA 337.50 Driver Comparison @ OCC

Posted by Nathan @ 3:22 AM (EDT)

From looking at the results, as long as you are not GPU bound, it seems as though the 337.50 drivers do offer some upside in most of the games tested. Star Swarm sees a 25% boost on the GTX 770 and the GTX 780 Ti is closer to 30%, exceeding the "up to" 21% stated on the release notes. In BF4 the single card gains were minimal, as were the gains at 5760x1080. However when you run the SLI numbers at 1920x1080 you get an easy 5% to 6% boost. Metro: Last Light, much like BF4, shows minimal gains at 5760x1080, but shows promise in both the single and SLI testing at 1920x1080, with gains as high as 8%. The greatest performance boost in Batman: Arkham Origins bucked the trend of being GPU bound with a pair of GTX 780 Ti in SLI by bringing home a 10% boost in performance. Far Cry 3 shows gains in almost every test; the largest gains coming from the SLI configurations at 1920x1080 with the GTX 770s delivering a 7% boost and the GTX 780 Tis delivering a 4% boost using the new driver.

Gigabyte’s G1.Sniper has a long history of targeting toward gamers. The board is designed with features that gamers seek the most: better audio quality, better network performance, and better cooling for overclocking, Dating back to the first G1.Sniper, Gigabyte has released various models of the G1.Sniper series: 3, 5, and M5.
