ASUS Z97I-PLUS mini-ITX Motherboard Review

Posted on July 24, 2014 in Intel Motherboards

“Big things come in small packages” might be cliche, but it applies well to mini-ITX motherboards – especially those like ASUS’ Z97I-PLUS.

Tegra K1 Gaming is Near: NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet & Controller Preview

Posted on July 22, 2014 in Mobile

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.

There’s no question about it: AIO water cooling solutions are here to stay. They’ve been around for CPUs; but what about GPUs?

Sapphire Radeon R9 280 Dual-X 3GB Graphics Card Review

Posted on July 16, 2014 in AMD-Based GPU

When we took a look at EVGA’s GeForce GTX 760 Superclocked a couple of weeks ago, we lacked the ideal card to compare it to. With Sapphire’s Radeon R9 280 Dual-X in the house, retailing for just $10 shy of EVGA’s, we’ve managed to remedy that problem. So, let’s dive in, and see how both fare through our battery of tests.

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 […]
