 [LATEST]  Sentey Eagle Plus
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 2:06P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To some, the “guts” of a computer are the components that make up the entire computer itself. You have your core components like the CPU, motherboard and RAM that make up the vital organs. But they all have to live inside a body; the case. Sentey has provided us a review sample of their Eagle Plus case with which to encase all of our “guts”. Lets take a look at how Sentey goes about keeping everything together.

 [LATEST]  Kingston HyperX Cloud II Headset
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 2:06P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Overall, Kingston has created a great headset. Not only is the sound exceptionally good for the price range, I would suggest buying these for the headphones alone. The Microphone is just like an added bonus in my eyes. The Cloud II was very comfortable thanks to the memory foam padding. Not to mention the list of features that are great in itself. I can't say they aren't better products that do one of these things, but you will be hard pressed to find something that crosses platforms and has high multipurpose functions.”

 [LATEST]  HyperX Announces New FURY DDR4 Memory and Extends High-capacity Predator DDR4 Ki
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 2:06P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Kingston has beefed up their DDR4 line with the announcement of new HyperX Fury DDR4 modules which are designed for entry-level enthusiasts. These cost-efficient DDR4 kits uses a lower profile, assymetrical design heat spreader on top of a black PCB. In addition, the high-end Predator DDR4 line has also been expanded to include 32GB and 64GB kits for those seeking … Read more.

 [LATEST]  Lenovo ThinkServer TD350 Tower Server Review

We have a Lenovo TD350 server that offers huge storage capacity in the lab today, which features flexible I/O options and a completely tool-less design."

 [LATEST]  Mionix Nash 20 Review
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 2:05P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Nash 20 is the latest stereo headset from Mionix. This product features an ergonomic design with generously sized earcups and therefore it's likely to be very comfortable. Mionix is well-known for their great gaming mice and we are curious to check if the Nash 20 is able to convince.

 [LATEST]  MyDigitalSSD OTG mSSD 512GB USB 3.0 Review
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 2:04P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Pocket storage becomes faster and more affordable almost every day and once in a while something special comes along. One of those is the MyDigitalSSD OTG mSSD that I’m taking a closer look at today. The OTG mSSD connects through the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 and comes with UASP support for proper SSD speeds. The MyDigitalSSD OTG mSSD is a device that truly lives up to the USB 3.0 SSD hype with its transfer speeds of up to 465MB/s while reading and 450MB/s while writing. This tiny OTG drive is a powerhouse in compact form factor. But the pocket-sized wonder doesn’t stop there as the use of just the best of components reduce the waiting times and maximizes the bandwidth utilization, thus enabling faster and more efficient transfers while helping lower CPU utilization for extended battery life for on-the-go user

 [LATEST]  MSI GS30 Shadow with Gaming Dock Review
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 2:04P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When we previewed the MSI GS30 Shadow and GamingDock at the end of 2014 we were blown away by the combination of Core i7-4870HQ CPU in the laptop and the desktop GTX 980 graphics card in the GamingDock. The concept of using an external dock to add proper gaming graphics to a thin and light laptop worked superbly well and we could hardly wait for the official release of the final package of hardware. We were also keen to learn the price as that has a major impact on the buying decision.

 [LATEST]  NVIDIA Announces Flagship GeForce GTX Titan X 12GB GPU At GDC 2015
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 2:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
During one of EPIC’s “State Of Unreal Engine” briefing session out at the Game Developer’s Conference, Tim Sweeny talked about the need for more powerful GPU technology to bring us closer to true photo-realistic rendering. At that point in his talk, Sweeny asked if there was anyone in the room that could answer that call, and NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang entered the room carrying a box, concealed within a large jacket...

 [LATEST]  socketed version of its 14-nm Broadwell processor
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 2:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink

During a GDC press conference today, Intel revealed that a socketed version of its 14-nm Broadwell processor is coming in the middle of this year. The desktop chip will be unlocked for easy overclocking, and we have a few other details to share:

 [LATEST]  Patriot Viper 4 DDR4 16GB 2800MHz, The Viper Strikes
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 2:02P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Founded in 1985, Patriot designs, manufactures and markets high performance, enthusiast memory modules, flash memory, and mobile accessory products with the objective of offering a perfect blend of quality and value for consumers. Happy 30th Patriot! Patriots long tradition of enthusiast ram modules is continued in their Viper 4 Series, DDR4 16GB 2800MHz kit. The Viper 4 2800MHz kit is timed at 16-18-18-36 and should be plug and play with Intels’ XMP profile technology.

 [LATEST]  VisionTek USB Pocket SSD 120GB
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 1:58P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Want the speed of an internal Hard drive in a pocket portable size? The VisionTek USB Pocket SSD (120GB) might be what you’re looking for. Rated at speeds up to 455MB/s Read and 440MB/s write the VisionTek USB pocket SSD should not only meet your speed needs but also your size requirements. Sporting a generous 120GB usable space the drive is actually 256GB but uses 16GB for true SSD features like Trim.

 [LATEST]  Kingston HyperX Savage (16GB)
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 1:57P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Currently, Kingston HyperX memory modules features four lines of products: Fury, Savage, Predator, and Impact. The Fury and Savage are aimed for mainstream market while the Predator is aimed for the extreme overclockers. Unlike the Predator that comes with a large heat spreader and clockspeed up to 2800MHz, both the Fury and Savage features standard size heat spreader. As you may expect, the Fury and the Savage are clocked at slightly lower speed than the Predator where we can find the Fury clocked at speed up to 1866MHz and the Savage at clockspeed up to 2400 MHz. Today, we have gotten the 2133MHz Savage that we will put it through our tests.

Plextor M6e Black Edition 256GB PCIe SSD Review - SSD Bling
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 12:46P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Plextor has certainly pushed the fit, finish, and looks of their M6e PCIe SSD with the new Black Edition. The new color scheme does well to match newer black and red motherboards and GPUs. While it is awesome to look at, Plextor`s changes were mostly cosmetic. The heatsink is functional but is not absolutely necessary for this relatively low power SSD. Since the power draw is on the low side, PCIe power is more than sufficient, rendering the SATA power connector a little more than an interesting talking point."

Enermax iVektor Mid-Tower Chassis Review
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 12:03P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enermax is one of the best names in the business, having designed many successful chassis, power supplies and cooling products over years. They’ve proven to us here at eTeknix time and time again that they can make some great products, with some very competitive price tags and that’s a trend I hope to see repeated here today with the iVektor. There’s no skipping over the fact that the iVektor isn’t the most recent product from Enermax, but we missed out on it the first time and I was eager to see what it could do, as I particularly liked the unique aesthetics of the chassis when I saw it at various trade shows. The iVektor is targeted at the mid-budget gaming market, with a price tag that will get you a little change from £70 from most major retailers. It sports enough features to be versatile for almost any kind of system build, so let’s jump in and take a closer look.

NVIDIA Unveils Tegra X1 Powered SHIELD Console
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 12:01P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA just wrapped up an event in San Francisco, where the Game DevelopersConference (GDC) is currently underway. The company unveiled a new Android TV streamer, game console, and supercomputer as NVIDIA’s Jen Hsun Huang calls it, all wrapped up in a single, ultra-slim device—the new NVIDIA SHIELD console. NVIDIA's Tegra X1 SoC is the star of the show on the SHIELD Console. In addition to its relatively powerful 256-core Maxwell-based GPU, the SoC is capable of full 10-bit, 4K encode and decode at up to 60Hz. The combination of the Tegra X1's multiple ARM cores, Maxwell-based GPU, and video engine, make the device about twice as powerful and an Xbox 360, while consuming only about 1/5 of the power...
