Posted on May 29, 2015 2:48 PM by Rob Williams
QNAP TS-563 Business NAS - Front

At CES this past January, QNAP surprised us by unveiling a NAS series powered by AMD processors. That sound strange to even say, but the reality is that AMD has largely been overlooked when it comes to NAS, even though it has compelling processors for the purpose. In a way, it was…..

EVGA Brings Its Hybrid Liquid Cooler To NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX TITAN X

Posted on May 29, 2015 2:04 PM by Rob Williams

When EVGA released its Hybrid AIO liquid cooler for the GeForce GTX 980 this past March, I admit that I was a little baffled at the fact that there wasn’t also a version for the monstrous GTX TITAN X. After all, that card has 50% more cores than the GTX 980 and triple…..

Google Announces Android M: OS Refinement & Many Changes On Tap

Android M Devices

At its ongoing I/O conference, Google took the veil off of the next version of Android, called M. The company’s focus with this release isn’t so much about being revolutionary as it is about refinement. Lollipop involved an overhaul on the OS, so edges will be smoothed out with M. That doesn’t…..

NVIDIA’s SHIELD Hits The Market, Comes In $199 & $299 Flavors

Posted on May 28, 2015 4:47 PM by Rob Williams

When NVIDIA announced its SHIELD back in March, we were promised a late May release. As it happens, that’s exactly what we’re being given. The release comes at a coincidental time, too. Google’s I/O conference just kicked off today, so what better time than now to release one of the (or the)…..

AMD Kaveri Black Edition - CPU Shot

AMD’s just-released A10-7870K is part of a Kaveri refresh that has an interesting focus: eSports. Well, to be more accurate, eSports on a budget. This $137 model APU is clocked a bit higher than the previous top-end model, with a max turbo of 4.1GHz, and stock speed of 3.9GHz. That’s not really…..

Windows 10 Phone Companion

The name of Windows 10’s game is “interoperability”. Whether you’re on your desktop or smartphone, Microsoft wants you to have access to what matters. That of course implies one thing: you’ll need a Windows Phone. That’s all fine and good, but the market has proven that most Windows desktop users don’t care…..

Following up on its launch of 60 FPS playback last November, YouTube has just announced that it’s extending the capability to streaming.

Grand Theft Auto III

When I first learned that the BBC was producing a drama that depicted the earliest days of Rockstar Games and its Grand Theft Auto series, it took nothing more for me to get excited about it. However, a major flaw has just been exposed with the production: Rockstar Games itself had nothing…..

Techgage – Responding to Changes On The Internet

Posted on May 19, 2015 9:30 AM by Jamie Fletcher

Not too long ago, Google made an announcement that mobile should be at the forefront of webpage design. Gone are the days of squeezing desktop based Internet browsing onto a 3-inch screen. To further this point, Google decided to make the rather controversial decision to effectively penalize sites that do not scale…..

NVIDIA Releases WHQL GeForce Driver For Windows 10 Preview

NVIDIA GeForce Logo

NVIDIA sure doesn’t mess around. I wouldn’t have even thought that it’d be possible to release a WHQL driver for an unreleased OS, but it is, and NVIDIA decided to capitalize on it. GeForce 352.84 becomes the first official stable driver from NVIDIA for Windows 10, and as such, there are no…..

In Win 707 Full-tower Chassis

In Win may not be as well-known as many of its competitors in the PC chassis market, but it makes some eye-catching products. Its 707 is certainly one of those. Styling-wise, it’s a knockout. But the beauty of a PC chassis is more than just skin-deep. Join us as we get inside…..

NVIDIA GRID - Dirt 3 Complete Edition

NVIDIA’s GRID service has just reached a big milestone: it now features 50 titles. 2009’s Bionic Commando became the 50th, and as we covered last month, Dirt 3: Complete Edition, LEGO Movie the Videogame and Strider helped lead up to that.

Kingston Bests G.SKILL, Shows Off DDR4-3000 128GB Kit Of Memory

Kingston HyperX Predator DDR4 - Kit of 8

A couple of weeks ago, G.SKILL came out of nowhere with a mammoth 128GB kit of DDR4 memory. Perhaps the most impressive thing about it was the fact that no current X99-based motherboard (that I’m aware of) supports more than 64GB officially, so even if 128GB is overkill for almost everyone, it’s…..

Continuing its good fight against DRM-infested games, has today announced that it has “unchained” five great games from the grasp of their copy protection technologies. And I do mean “great” games. We’re talking Saints Row 2 and The Third, Metro Last Light Redux, as well as both Darksiders titles. The least-expensive…..

Keurig Logo

Who didn’t see this coming? Like pretty much every other consumer, we sure did. Alas, Keurig pleaded ignorance, all the way up until its latest financial report. At the end of Q1, Keurig saw its sales drop 23%, year-over-year. Instead of improving its stock price, which is what it expected, it instead…..

COUGAR 500K Gaming Keyboard Review

Posted on May 6, 2015 7:00 AM by Techgage Staff

While the PC peripheral market has been obsessed with mechanical keyboards the last couple of years, not everyone has the budget nor desire for such devices. Rubber-dome may be a dirty word when it comes to high-end peripherals, but they are still relevant and a proven key switch type. COUGAR’s budget orientated…..

Steam - Pressure Theme (Store and Menu)

Despite the fact that I appreciate great aesthetics and find Steam’s default interface to be a bit lacking, I’ve never felt compelled enough to deal with the hassle of installing a replacement theme. Time and time again, I’d spot a neat theme and be intrigued, but for some reason still wouldn’t go through with…..
