    Amazon Kindle Paperwhite (2015) Review

    Amazon has just released its third-gen Kindle Paperwhite e-reader, and while it doesn’t offer a substantial upgrade over the previous model, it does iterate on what was already a fantastic device. With a 300 ppi screen and brand-new Bookerly font at-the-ready, there’s not much to dislike with this e-reader.

    Sapphire Radeon R9 285 ITX Compact Graphics Card Review

    Finding a good graphics card for a small form-factor PC can be tough, but Sapphire helps make the decision a bit easier with a series targeting ITX builds. While we’re taking a look at the outgoing R9 285, it’s nearly identical to the R9 380, and as we find out, it’s worth a look.

    Logitech MX Anywhere 2 Wireless Mobile Mouse Review

    Logitech released its MX Master desktop mouse to much fanfare a couple of months ago, so it did what any reasonable peripheral vendor would do: shrink it down. That perfectly describes the MX Anywhere 2, a mobile mouse that packs in all of the features a desktop mouse should. The big question: is it worth your $80?

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Overclocking & Best Playable Settings

    We discovered last week that NVIDIA’s latest high-end graphics card, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti, is damned fast. It performs close to the TITAN X, yet costs hundreds less. But does that mean we should consider its overall performance ideal, and just leave it alone? Nah – let’s get to overclocking this thing.

When will some developers learn? Yet again, a much-hyped and technically detailed PC game has hit the market that defaults to a framerate of 30 FPS. I’m not sure about you, but I don’t appreciate a forced “cinematic feel”. There is an upside, though; unlike Ubisoft, which hard-caps the framerate to 60…..
