GAMDIAS – High Quality Peripherals for Gamers on a Budget

Posted on August 1, 2014 3:33 PM by J.D. Kane

Gaming gear of all types often incur a price premium. In some cases, the price hike compared to a non-gaming equivalent is enough to dissuade gamers with budgetary limits. GAMDIAS, a brand-new entrant into the red-hot gaming peripherals market, wants to challenge the notion that high quality means high cost for the consumer. “We believe […]

Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury Gaming Mouse

In Greek mythology, Hyperion is one of the twelve Titans. His name translates to “the High One,” not to denote his predilection for enjoying whacko tobacco, but as a designation of his status. After all, Hyperion is the father of Helios (the Sun). Anyway, Logitech has just announced its latest gaming mouse, the G402 Hyperion […]

GIGABYTE Radeon 280X Windforce - ThermalRecon

As a bit of a tech junkie, and someone who loves performance PC hardware, I get a kick out of looking deep into the design of a new part, whether it be a motherboard, a CPU, a GPU, or so forth. In some ways, the mere design of such a product could be viewed from […]

Ubisoft - The Crew Box Art

There’s no other game set to launch this fall that I am looking forward to as much as The Crew, a racing title largely developed by the remnants of Eden Games, now known as Ivory Tower. The reason for this is that I was a huge fan of Eden’s Test Drive Unlimited 2, having sunk hundreds […]

Defiance Box Art

One guarantee I can give to anyone about to embark on a new MMO journey is that at some point, that game’s developer is going to do something you don’t like. It’s just the nature of the beast – you might not like a change, while someone else digs it. Then there are those times where […]

Posted on July 28, 2014 7:00 AM by Techgage Staff

Thermaltake’s Level 10 product line has always been as much about style and design as it has been about innovation and function. Until now, one piece of the puzzle has been missing: audio. That changes with the Level 10M gaming headset, designed for gamers and those on-the-go. Let’s find out if it’s deserving of that […]

When ‘Extreme’ Isn’t Enough, Thermaltake’s WATER3.0 ‘Ultimate’ Should Do The Trick

Thermaltake Water 3 Ultimate CPU Cooler

When I took a look at Thermaltake’s WATER3.0 Extreme CPU cooler last August, I was left quite impressed overall. So impressed, in fact, that the very same cooler has been used in our GPU test bench since. With its dual-rad design and efficient fans, I deemed the Extreme to be suitable for overclockers and those […]

Well… it’s about damn time. One of the most-requested features that GOG fans have had for its developers was Linux support, and after going so long without it, I was starting to think it’d never happen. But, here it is. Apparently, GOG’s kept no secret about its forthcoming Linux support; I just happened to not […]

I’m sure this comes as a surprise to no one, but Blizzard’s World of Warcraft remains the world’s biggest MMO in terms of revenue.

ASUS Z97I-PLUS mini-ITX Motherboard Review

Posted on July 24, 2014 7:00 AM by Techgage Staff

“Big things come in small packages” might be cliche, but it applies well to mini-ITX motherboards – especially those like ASUS’ Z97I-PLUS. Featuring 802.11ac wireless, an M.2 slot, a common-sense design, and a fantastic software package, this is one board well worth considering for that next ITX build.

Samsung 105-inch 4K Television

I don’t own a TV, and to be honest, I don’t think I need a TV. But recently, I have felt a bit of a bug… perhaps I do want a TV. Movies I’ll never watch would look so good, as would the sports games coming across my non-existent cable subscription. Today, I think Samsung has […]

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet and Controller

I made a prediction a couple of months ago that the next SHIELD release we’d see would be an upgrade to the original – but with a dose of Tegra K1. As it turns out, I was wrong. However, like the SHIELD portable, NVIDIA’s just-announced SHIELD Tablet and Controller are two products that portable gaming […]

Kingston SSDNow V310 960GB SSD

Kingston’s SSDNow series has long been a popular choice for those looking for a great bang-for-the-buck SSD, and so it’s not a series we’d expect to see a landmark model released in. But at 960GB, the V310 is certainly that. Utilizing Phison’s 3108 controller, the V310 can peak at 450MB/s read and write when benchmarked […]
