ASUS Z97-PRO GAMER Motherboard

We couldn’t imagine winding down our 10th anniversary celebration without ASUS – and so we won’t. ASUS is one of Techgage’s longest-running sponsors, and it also happens to hold the record for the number of articles we’ve done for a single company – 97 to date. So, what’s up for grabs?

EVGA GeForce GTX 980 HYBRID

The top-end temperature of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 980 is about 80°C, and while that seems a bit high, it’s well within dangerous levels. Still, I wouldn’t blame anyone for wanting to see even lower temperatures (that goes for any piece of hardware, really), either for the piece-of-mind, reduction of overall system heat,…..

Grey Goo Logo

Grey Goo is the newest kid on the real-time strategy block. It was created by veteran RTS studio Petroglyph, and while this title may have the pedigree, does it mean that it will win our hearts and minds when going up against the crowd favorite MOBA? There’s only one way to find…..

The Consumerist - Seth's Home

Years ago, Internet access felt more like a luxury than a necessity – but fast-forward to today, and the situation has certainly changed. Now, it seems more people than not would consider Internet access to be a necessity. We use it to pay our bills, to research, to keep in touch –…..

Thecus N5810PRO NAS

Thecus has just launched a brand-new N5000-series NAS, and it packs one hell of a punch. Like all other N5000 series NASes, the N5810PRO includes five drive bays. Where it largely differs is with what’s under the hood, and at the back. Powering the N5810PRO is a beefier CPU – Intel’s Celeron…..

Rogers Cable TV

It’s not often that Canada’s CRTC instills me with much confidence, but its latest move is without question a great one. For far too long, cable TV providers have taken advantage of consumers in a number of different ways – overcharging for basic cable, and requiring consumers to shell out for big…..

KINGPIN GTX TITAN X Overclock - 3DMark Fire Strike

As we discovered last week (not that it was a surprise), NVIDIA’s new GeForce GTX TITAN X is a seriously powerful graphics card. At 4K, it actually allows you to max out the graphical detail in most games and get playable framerates, or let you decrease some of the more superfluous settings…..

HyperX Predator PCIe SSD

The hottest thing in the SSD universe right now is PCIe-based drives, either those that plug right into a PCIe slot, or an M.2 slot. At CES, we learned that Kingston would be dipping its toes into such waters, with its HyperX Predator. What we knew of the drive at that time…..

Mario Kart

For forever and a day, Nintendo has said that the world would never see its games on non-Nintendo platforms. That means no Mario, no Donkey Kong, no Zelda on anything but the company’s consoles and handhelds. In a stunning reversal of policy, the company announced that it has joined up with fellow…..

Jen-Hsun Huang - Drive PX At GTC

We wrote about NVIDIA’s super-ambitious Drive initiative a few months ago. At that time, all we knew was that at its heart was a pair of Tegra X1 chips working together to enable autonomous operation of a motor vehicle. In fact, after watching the company’s demonstration of the concept, I quipped that…..

Humpy Leftnut (not his real name, though it definitely should be), inspired by the massively popular Humble Bundle, has created his own knock-off charity site in a slightly different fashion.

There’s always some good stuff to come out of Netflix’s ‘Hack Day’, and last week’s event was no exception. One of the projects tends to stand out from the rest, though, especially if you’re a fan of classic gaming systems. Created by Guy Cirino, Alex Wolfe, and Carenina Motion, ‘DarNES’ lets you watch Netflix…..
