Seagate Desktop SSHD Review reported at 11:47 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: NikKTech
Article Quote:
Overall the Desktop SSHD 4TB model is probably the next best thing to enterprise grade hard disk drives currently and so it really goes without saying that it gets our Golden Award.

AMD A10-7850K Review reported at 11:44 AM
category: AMD Socket FM2+ CPUs     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
AMD’s Kaveri A10-7850K is a solid overclocker. While we settled at 1028MHz on the GPU we were able to go another divider higher with slight bumps in voltage and the enthusiastic overclocker might even be able to go a couple more dividers up into the 1100-1200MHz region. What a difference the 308 MHz extra made. Pairing up our overclock with fast RAM saw us making large gains in most GPU-centric applications. Most games scaled well and we saw around 10% extra performance compared to stock GPU clocks. Best of all this overclocking only added about 20W to the total system power consumption meaning the A10-7850K with 2400MHz RAM and a hefty GPU overclock consumed less power than the stock last-generation A10-6800K with 1866MHz RAM – very impressive stuff indeed.

Western Digital My Cloud EX2 Review reported at 11:34 AM
category: Storage Accessories     website: ThinkComputers
Article Quote:
However, the most valuable features of the MyCloud are still home network centered. UPNP/DLNA media playback, automated backups, etc. Automatic syncing, mobile picture backup, and easy sharing are features of the cloud services that cloud storage doesn’t quite seem to have yet. Especially that last one: that’s a problem that, to my knowledge, hasn’t been solved well yet.

Crucial M550 Review reported at 11:15 AM
category: SATA Hard Drives     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
“As we are watching the SATA III interface, the challenge of producing a new drive that offers more is become harder and harder for vendors and the result is a whole bunch of drives that are performing within the same boundaries of each other. With the M550, Crucial are focussing more on the cost of the drive – whilst at the same time keeping the performance figures up, the result being one of the cheapest high performance drives that we’ve seen to date.

4K Gaming Showdown – AMD R9 290X CrossFire Vs Nvidia GTX 780 Ti SLI reported at 11:11 AM
category: Game Accelerator Cards     website: eTeknix.com
Article Quote:
While I find two non-reference AMD R9 290Xs an attractive proposition at close to reference pricing, e.g. around $579~, the reality is right now you’re looking at something in the region of $620-650, though you can find some better deals if you hunt around, but the same can also be said for the GTX 780 Ti. With the AMD R9 290X being priced close to the $700 GTX 780 Ti it does make an uncomfortable situation for AMD. Given the heat, power consumption and frame latency caveats already mentioned there is no reason to pick R9 290X CrossFire over GTX 780 Ti SLI if there isn’t much difference in price between the two (e.g. around $100~). However, when both cards sell close to (within 5%) their MSRPs the decision is a tough one.
