    NVIDIA: The Way It's Meant to be Played

    Just ask anyone that's an aficionado of high speed video racing games, to see what all that adrenaline is all about. It's likely things like anti-aliasing and artifacts might be mentioned, along with eye-candy and better frame rates. But in reality, the real rush comes from the sheer realism and exhilarating speed that a realistic high speed racing game can provide.

  • Lenovo Horizon 2 AIO Desktop Computer Review

    Benchmark Reviews

    "The desktop computer is changing, acquiring hardware and software features first seen on mobile devices. As Microsoft works to unify the Windows experience across everything from phones to desktops, vendors work to make their desktops work more like phones, with integrated all-in-one designs, touch screens, and new user interfaces. Today Benchmark Reviews looks at Lenovo's latest entry in this evolving category, the Horizon 2 All-In-One PC."

  • GeForce GTX 980 PCI-Express Scaling

    "PCI-Express x16 3.0 is well established in the market, and the majority of gamers are using that interface. But what happens if you end up in a slot-bandwidth constrained situation? We are testing NVIDIA's latest GeForce GTX 980 flagship in 17 games, at four resolutions, including 4K, to assess what performance to expect."


  • MSI GTX 760 ITX Video Card Review

    "MSI is currently offering their midrange cards in these mini-ITX liveries. The card we have today is the GTX 760 Mini-ITX Gaming. The GTX 760 is a fairly popular card due to it being fairly quick, but not too expensive. It is still based on the GK104, though fairly heavily cut down from a fully functional die. The GTX 760 features 1152 CUDA Cores divided into 6 SMXs. A fully functional GK104 is 1536 CUDA Cores and 8 SMXs. The stock clock on the GTX 760 is 980 MHz with a boost up to 1033 MHz."

  • ASUS ROG Gladius gaming mouse review

    "Most people are aware of mechanical keyboards these days, with their multiple switch options allowing a level of customisation that many other peripherals cannot match. But what if they could? That is one of the features that the ASUS ROG Gladius takes very seriously, giving you the chance to change its mouse feet, cable and even its left and right click switches. This is a no-nonsense mouse that is not trying to sell you a high DPI, but accuracy, comfort and hardware options. At least that is what the marketing material says."


  • DimasTech Bench/Test Easy V3.0 Review

    "Using an open air case or otherwise called a test bench can save those that which out hardware on a regular basis a lot of time. Even for those that rarely change out hardware need to look at Dimastech Bench/Table Easy V3.0 for its ease of access, looks and options. Lets jump into the review and I will walk you though the build."


  • Asus G751 Gaming Laptop: Mobile Maxwell Done Right

    "The PC laptop market is a funny place. Good laptops are fairly easy to find, but great laptops are staggeringly rare. This is true even at the boutique end of the market, where manufacturers have a tendency to choose powerful components, but cram them into a chassis that can't handle the heat without sounding like a jet turbine, or pick great, quiet hardware but opt for a sub-par 1080p screen whose quality leaves something to be desired. The Asus G751 is not a good laptop. The G751 is a great laptop. It is, in fact, the single best gaming laptop I have ever reviewed. If you're in the market for a system of this type, we hope you read on. This machine is powered by the excellent, Maxwell-based NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M, but Asus deserves a significant amount of credit for the G751's design and construction choices."

  • Mach Xtreme MX-ES 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review


    "Lately most storage media manufacturers focus in the production of USB 3.0 compatible flash drives that offer good performance levels and capacities at reasonable prices (targeting the main consumer base is the obviously thing to do). However i do miss the time when manufacturers would focus most of their resources in the design and manufacture of the fastest flash drives possible (remember the kind of performance the first dual and quad channel flash drives delivered?) aimed towards people who could really use the extra boost in performance. This is not to say that there aren't extremely fast USB 3.0 flash drives in the market as we speak but there's always room for improvement, in most cases anyways. The latest USB 3.0 compatible flash drive line released by Mach Xtreme Technology is called the MX-ES (MXUB3SES) and promises read/write speeds of up to 170-185MB/s so as always we just had to take a closer look."

  • Moto X (2nd Gen) Smartphone by Motorola Review

    "When Motorola introduced the Moto X last year, the company was owned by Google. In our hands-on review of the first-generation Moto X, we pointed out that the collaboration between Motorola and Android engineers led to an incredibly sleek device and a good user experience. Although the first-generation Moto X didn't have quite as impressive hardware specifications as its high-end competitors at the time, the phone still performed very well. What's more, the Moto X also included a number of unique extras, like touchless controls that worked exceptionally well. Fast forward to today, and a lot has changed on the mobile front. Google is selling Motorola Mobility to Lenovo and closing the Fort Worth plant where the original Moto X was made. We also have a new set of heavyweight smartphones on the market. The 2014 edition of the Moto X, also known as the 2nd generation Moto X, is hoping to attract the attention of users who may be considering some of today's high-end phones from Apple, Samsung, HTC, or LG, and it may very well succeed."

Now as many of you are well aware although the latest 12GB/s standard has been with us for good well over a year now there aren't really many compatible storage solutions in the market as we speak so it's not easy for us to compare similar products.
