  • Samsung 850 Pro 256GB/512GB/1TB review: back at the top!

    Review Review - 8 hours ago

    Samsung recently introduced their 850 Pro SSDs, which are the first consumer-oriented SSDs based on 3D V-NAND, or stacked flash memory. And for those of you who don't really care about this innovation in the domain of flash memory, we also have good news, seeing as how both the performance and the endurance of these SSDs has increased significantly. Do they allow Samsung to reclaim the performance crown?

    Watch Dogs review: tested with 32 GPUs

    Watch Dogs is a recently released Ubisoft title for which expectations were high. An open world game in a similar vein to Grand Theft Auto, featuring next-gen graphics and the innovative ability to accomplish your goals by means of hacking – in addition to the default arsenal of more conventional violence, of course. We tested it using 32 different GPUs.

    Intel Core i7 4790K / i5 4690K Devil's Canyon review: Haswell for overclockers!

    Last month Intel Introduced the Haswell Refresh processors. The newly introduced processors can easily be described as being the same 4th generation Core-processors we already knew, with the same price with a model number which is 20 points higher and a clock frequency which has been raised by 100 MHz. 

    Two processors however didn't receive an update: the Core i7 4770K and the i5 4670K, the uncocked models aimed at overclockers. Now Intel has also introduced the updated K-models under the code name Devil's Canyon. According to Intel these new models are even more interesting for overclockers. We test the new Core i7 4790K and the Core i5 4690K.

    Twelve desktop sets reviewed: buy cheaply, pay dearly?

    You can't avoid having to purchase a new keyboard or a new mouse every once in a while. Desktop sets which combine both are relatively inexpensive; that is what people seem to think, at least. We tested twelve sets ranging from approximately 20 to 90 euros, but were ultimately left unimpressed.

    MSI Nightblade review: the perfect barebone for gamers?

    They already make parts for gaming computers, produce gaming laptops, and they have already started to produce all in one computers in the MSI factories. A true gaming PC was not yet on the product list, untill the MSI Nightblade was introduced. A proper Game PC, sort of, as for now it is only available as a barebone system and will need to be finished either by yourself or with help of your computer shop. .

    HD Video Editing PC - June 2014 A few years ago, your PC just couldn't be fast enough for digital video processing. By now every average PC is able to process Standard Definition (PAL 720x576) as well as HD Ready, but technology doesn't stand still. By now just about every smartphone can record in HD or Full HD and the new frontier is Ultra HD, also known as 4K. This resolution and the 'accompanying' codec HEVC / H.265 require seriously powerful hardware. That's the reason why a powerful PC can still really make a differenc... Read more

    During their GPU Technology Conference 2014 in late March, Nvidia announced a new flagship video card: the dual-GK110 based GeForce GTX Titan-Z.

The folks over at Tones.be sent us their TIZAir-system, in which two of these GTX Titan-Z cards are incorporated.

    SilverStone RVZ01 mini-ITX case review

    When talking about Mini-ITX formats, two things stand out in the current market. Firstly there have been a lot of manufacturers releasing products in this form factor over the last few years, secondly that a few players have been using this format for a longer time than that. On of the most widely knows brands for Mini-ITX is SilverStone. They have released a long line of Mini-ITX form factor cases, and we have tested a lot of them over the years. The latest addition to this is the Raven RVZ01, and we must admit it lives up to the SilverStone legacy.

    NZXT H440 review: radical design causes lack of fresh air

    NZXT cases are always unique looking and we often get requests to test them. The recently announced NZXT H440 also sparked a lot of interest which is probable partly due to some of the radical design choices that NZXT made. The front of the case is one solid piece and there are no 5,25" bay and this gives the case a very striking appearance, but like we are used to from NZXT they have given a lot of thought to the design. In our recent tests of the Phantom 530 and the H230 we found cooling performances a little lacking. The H440 probably won't change that being a silent case but we are interested to see how it will fare when compared to 13 other silence oriented cases.
