It might have taken a little while, but the first NVIDIA G-SYNC competitor is here – and who else to be behind it than AMD? Leveraging adaptive sync abilities made possible by the DisplayPort 1.2a spec, AMD’s ‘FreeSync’ shares the same goals as NVIDIA’s G-SYNC: Reducing (or removing) tearing, freeing you from…..
CONTEST IS NOW OVER. The winners are (in the order that their name was pulled from the hat): Grand Prize: Michael Runner-up #1: XANX Runner-up #2: Jason Susavidge After a slight contest hiatus due to travel, we’re back with another offering. This time, we’re teaming up with our good friends at Corsair…..
With so many devices out there, on many different operating systems, deciding which one you should purchase can be difficult. DuOS helps lessen that burden by providing an Android tablet experience on your Windows computer. Does DuOS step beyond the barriers that currently divide these OS’s, or are we still locked into…..
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…..
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…..
Continuing its TITAN legacy, NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX TITAN X gives the gaming world its latest drool-worthy top-end offering. With sights on 4K gaming, TITAN X gives us a sleek black card that boasts 3,072 CUDA cores and an absurd 12GB framebuffer on a 384-bit bus. Words are not needed – let’s dive…..
During our 10th anniversary celebrations so far, we’ve offered up copies of Far Cry 4, Shadow of Mordor, and Dying Light – all sponsored by our good friends at NVIDIA. Believe it or not, we’re not quite done: Up for grabs for another round are ten copies of Ubisoft’s The Crew –…..
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. His website, aptly named Hump the Bundle (VERY NSFW), is designed not around games, but pornography that you can purchase and use tissues and batteries…..
Fractal Design is no stranger to the case market – it’s been in a well-deserved spot in the top-tier of case manufacturers. The company is well-known for its minimalistic aesthetics, versatility, quality, and above all, silence. The Define R4 was an incredible case – what is different in the Define R5? Follow…..
CONTEST IS NOW OVER. The winners are (in the order that their name was pulled from the hat): Grand Prize: retrophiliac Runner-up #1: Chad Westcott Runner-up #2: Manuel Velazquez Continuing what’s become a theme during our 10th anniversary celebration, where we’ve posted a contest for games followed by hardware – and then…..
The console-exclusive $500-million hit took to the stage to accept the final – and most sought-after – award of “Best Game” to conclude the show held at the Tobacco Dock in London Thursday night. Having been nominated for four BAFTA awards (multiplayer, persistent game, game design and best game) and only to…..
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…..
To complement the high-end GeForce GTX 970M and 980M mobile GPUs that have been on the market since the fall, NVIDIA has today released a couple of more affordable options: GTX 960M and 950M. As you’d expect, these new GPUs are a fair bit slower than the pre-existing high-end chips, but what’s…..

When WD introduced its updated ‘Re’ line in 2013, it gave the enterprise market a brand-new high-end option – one that offered lots of storage and lots of reliability. When I took at look at the 4TB model, I was left thoroughly impressed – enough to award the drive an Editor’s Choice…..
It’s rare when I want a game quite as badly as I want Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. I consider both the original game and its sequel, 2: Assassins of Kings, to be “amazing”. Part of what helps that is that Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski’s The Witcher books translate well to a video game.…..
“When on earth is AMD’s 300 series going to get here?” These days, that’s a popular question. NVIDIA ushered in its latest GeForce generation six months ago, and just last week, it unveiled the ultra high-end TITAN X (our fact-lacked preview). That, coupled with the fact that AMD’s 200 series launched 17 months…..
It might have taken a while to get here, but launch information for Apple’s much-anticipated Watch has arrived. On April 24, Apple’s “most personal device yet” will hit stores in Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, UK, and of course, the US. Most of Apple’s product launches involve just a…..
Apple’s previous MacBook series didn’t have a big focus on thinness, and for the most part, I guess we could have called it standard fare – the “entry” of the MacBook world. When the series was shelved in 2011, it wasn’t clear if it’d ever make a return; or, if it did,…..
CONTEST IS NOW OVER. The winners are (in the order that their name was pulled from the hat): Grand Prize: Angela Runner-up #1: David S. Thornberry Runner-up #2: Johnny Maybank Huge congrats to the winners! If your name is on the list above, I’ll be contacting you via email shortly with more…..
Yes – “Valve”, as in the creator of the Half-Life series and Steam platform. At last week’s Game Developers Conference in San Francisco, OpenGL overlords Khronos announced a new API, called Vulkan. Ultimately, Khronos’ goal is to merge OpenGL and OpenGL ES efforts together, while mimicking some of the goals AMD had with its Mantle API.…..
Back in November, Logitech released its MOBA-targeted G302 Daedalus Prime gaming mouse. Overall, it’s a great-looking rodent from both an aesthetics and features standpoint (one feature being that it’s kept simple), and for its price point of $50, it looks to be a great option for MOBA fans and anyone else that…..
The folks at FinalWire have just released an Android version of the company’s popular AIDA64 system analysis tool, and promise that an iOS version is in the works. Similar to CPU-Z for Android, AIDA64 aims to give you as much information as you’d possibly need about your device. As you can see…..
Here’s a CHERRY-infused product that’s a bit different: A wireless mouse and keyboard combo that does not feature CHERRY’s mechanical switches that we’ve come to know and love. Instead, the DW 3000 has two goals: To be wireless, and to be simple. But is it possible that this combo is a bit…..
When NVIDIA unveiled its monstrous GeForce GTX TITAN X earlier this week, I had guessed that it would be about two months before it launched to market. Well, on account of the fact that a sample hit our lab this morning, I think it might be a good idea to backtrack on…..
