Nanoxia Deep Silence 2 @ techPowerUp
     Wed, Jun 19 2013 | 3:52A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Nanoxia Deep Silence 2 is a simpler version of the Deep Silence 1, with a noticably lower price tag and the aim to offer the same core functionality. We take the heavy case for a spin to see what had to change for the case to be offered at a very interesting 30 Euros less than the number 1 of the DS series."

Metro: Last Light Review
     Tue, Jun 18 2013 | 8:49P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
What about the nearest to it; Metro 2033? How does it compare to its predecessor? I would say they come out about equal, as far as overall quality and experience. As discussed in the story section, 2033 and Last Light have a different mechanic to their stories, as the earlier title drives you through the world, and this one places you in it. This causes some aspects in one to be better than in the other, so without taking these differences into consideration, you cannot fairly compare these two titles to each other. When you do though, you find two very well made games that serve themselves and their franchise very well."

Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA`s GeForce GTX 770 video card is built from the 28nm Kepler GK104 graphics processor, identical to the GTX 680 released back in March 2012. Featuring 1536 CUDA cores that are clocked to reach 1085 MHz using NVIDIA Boost 2.0 technology, GTX 770 also comes with 2GB of GDDR5 video memory that creates the world`s fastest 1753 MHz graphics frame buffer.

Intel DC S3500 Data Center SSD Review (480GB x 4) Speed Great Features and Rock Bottom Prices
     Tue, Jun 18 2013 | 7:50A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Let`s make it clear right from the start and not mix words when we say that the Intel DC S3500 is an enterprise/data center SSD through and through. Availability and pricing of the DC S3500 found early on the morning of release, however, is definitely going to tempt more than just the data center crowd. After all, the Intel DC S3500 has speeds above 500MB/s, 75K IOPS, AES 256-bit encryption, power loss data protection, advanced error correction, availability in 5mm and 7mm form factors, multiple capacities, up to 450TBW and a five year warranty. Compound this with great pricing (http://thessdreview.us7.list-manage.com/track/click?u=3d9b6193ffd32dd60e84fc74b&id=1800a17b9f&e=00e2c00bf2) and a controller that many have been just itching to see in a consumer SSD for some time and Intel just may have unexpectedly stumbled on a new crowd of buyers."

Gainward GTX 770 Phantom Review @ Vortez
     Tue, Jun 18 2013 | 3:56A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Phantom design of the Gainward GTX770 is not entirely new as it has been used in both the 5 and 6 series of NVIDIA cards however today`s cooler has been tweaked and is perhaps an evolution of previous designs. It has some very neat features, looks tremendous and it has to be said that sat atop of the GTX770, it is a behemoth of a graphics card."

Mad Catz S.T.R.I.K.E. 5 Adjustable Gaming Keyboard
     Mon, Jun 17 2013 | 8:49P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Technologically speaking the Computer Keyboard has gone a long way since its inception back in the early 1970s but no matter how one sees it its design has remained virtually the same ever since. Microsoft was the one to start the keyboard design evolution with their natural/ergonomic keyboard lines back in the 90s but it wasn`t really up until roughly a decade ago that we witnessed the gaming peripherals revolution which really changed the way we see keyboards. Even so although gaming keyboards featured several aesthetic and performance additions which aimed to improve efficiency/speed while gaming the design remained pretty much the same. Mad Catz is perhaps the only manufacturer that really pushed the envelope when they released their truly unique S.T.R.I.K.E. 7 adjustable gaming keyboard several months ago but unfortunately although impressive both in terms of quality and features its price tag was set higher than what most people can afford. Well Mad Catz thought of that as well when developing the S.T.R.I.K.E. keyboard line and so today with us we have it`s less expensive but equally impressive brother the S.T.R.I.K.E. 5 adjustable gaming keyboard."

We recently tested the 512 GB version of Toshiba`s latest SSD with 19 nm flash chips and a rebranded Marvell controller. Today, we are looking at the 256 GB version to investigate whether the smaller capacity reduces performance, or if it too manages to claim the performance throne."

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 Review @ Vortez
     Mon, Jun 17 2013 | 12:14P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While the GTX770 is not a direct replacement for the GTX680, it makes sense to compare against this card than the card NVIDIA pitch it as replacing, the GTX670 because of the similarities. For those looking to upgrade from a GTX670 or a GTX570, NVIDIA claim increases in performance of 22% and 65% respectively. How this performance increase transpires when pitched against the GTX680 we will examine in our performance benchmarks."

SilverStone DS322 Dual Bay USB 3.0 Enclosure Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Jun 17 2013 | 8:21A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Sometimes it can be hard to find an easy, affordable and reliable solution for external PC backups in one product. I have used several HDD enclosures and NAS products from several different makers and never really fell in love with any of them. Most of them have extremely complicated menus that you have to sift through to try and figure out how to change the RAID setup of the device. Then you have to wait several hours just for it to format a few hundred Gigs of space. In the past, when deciding on a RAID capable enclosure you really need to prioritize what is important to you and ask yourself a few questions. How much does it cost? How reliable it is? How easy is it to use? Keep all of those questions in mind as you read this review and I think you will be pleasantly surprised with this enclosure."
