  • 54 HDDs and SSHDs, reviewed: the best drives for your desktop, laptop, and NAS

    Review Review - Tuesday 16-06-2015 - 07:35

    54 HDDs and SSHDs, reviewed: the best drives for your desktop, laptop, and NAS Now that the prices of SSDs have dropped to well below 50 cents per GB, we expect that only few Hardware.Info readers will still want to use a conventional hard drive as their primary storage device. We still can't quite live without them, however, because with prices of around 5 cents per GB, hard drives still remain a much cheaper way of storing large amounts of data. Hard drives haven't seen all that much innovation during the last few years; manufacturers are primarily focusing on increasin... Read more

    Acer Predator XB270HU review: first 144Hz IPS monitor

    A fast refresh rate and excellent colour reproduction is normally a combination that is hard to come by. Most gamers know the trade off; for a minimum in "ghosting" you will have to sacrifice accurate colour reproduction. With the arrival of 144 Hz monitors that sport a IPS panel this trade off is no longer necessary, Acer was the first manufacturer that could provide us with such a screen and we have tested the Predator XB270HUbprz.

    Home server - June 2015 The home server. It's subject to heated debate on Hardware.Info. Opinions differ widely on subjects like the necessity for keeping the design compact, the advantage of hot-swap bays, acceptable energy consumption, how much CPU power is needed, what type of storage and so on. It's safe to say that the "ideal home server" does not exist, because its intended use differs widely among our readers. This doesn't mean that we can't provide a good guide to effective home servers. There are two option... Read more

The rest of the configuration needs to be balanced as well. Since many gamers also enjoy overclocking their PC to improve performance, it is also important to choose a motherboard and memory that is suitable for this. Keep in mind that you will pay extra for that overclocking potential. Having the right accessories is also importa... Read more

    4K Gaming PC - May 2015 After a few years in which little happened in the area of PC displays, the 4K revolution is finally taking place. Graphics cards have to render four times as many pixels to drive a 4K display, while the game textures are only getting more detailed. In short: you need real horse power to game in 4K. A fast processor and especially a graphics card is a must. For now, you even need a couple of the latter. However, the rest of the configuration needs to be balanced as well.

    4K Video Editing PC - May 2015 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

    Assassin's Creed Rogue is already the seventh entry in the Assassin's Creed series. After its initial release for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in late 2014, PC gamers got to join in the fun during March of this year. We tested the game using 23 modern GPUs, ranging from the humble AMD Radeon R7 240 to the Nvidia GeForce Titan X, in order to determine which graphics cards are capable of producing playable framerates at three different resolutions and with two different quality presets.

  • 600-650 watt power supply round-up: 25 models put to the test

    600-650 watt power supply round-up: 25 models put to the test

    When building a powerful system, we'd recommend going with a power supply of above average capacity. Although a 500W unit is actually capable of powering a pretty beefy system these days, choosing a 600-650W unit does offer a little more flexibility at only a modest price increase. Therefore, we tested 25 such power supplies, with prices ranging from $30 / £22 / €30 to $150 / £120 / €150.
