    4K Gaming PC - August 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. Since many gamers pref... Read more

    Gaming PC - August 2015 This computer system is specifically geared towards gaming. That means a PC with a high-end graphics card and a processor that is fast enough to support the GPU. 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

    Intel five generation IPC test: Broadwell, Haswell, Ivy Bridge, Sandy Bridge and Nehalem

    We have recently published an extensive review on the Intel Core i7 5775C, the first Broadwell processor that is available of the shelf. What we have not covered in our previous review is the actual like-for-like performance gain that Broadwell has over the previous generation. We have tested this as well as the gain over earlier generations, covering a total of five generations of Intel processors running on the same clock frequency.

    Six 32-inch Ultra HD monitor review: serious business

    We have already tested quite a few screens that sport a resolution of 3440x1440 pixels, but if you are looking for a serious amount of desktop space Ultra HD offers even more. The disadvantage is that Ultra HD screen are relatively small, but the 32 inch models are starting to become more accessible. Prices have dropped quite a bit since we tested our first 32 inch Ultra HD model and we decided it was time to do a comparative test between six models that are currently available.

    Be quiet! Silent Base 800 review: the quietest base!

    Be quiet! has gained quite a bit of respect as a manufacturer of power supplies, fans, and CPU coolers. However, the German brand clearly isn't planning on resting on their laurels: in late 2014, they introduced the Silent Base 800, an enclosure that they claim will be the new standard for quietly yet efficiently cooling a complete system. With an MSRP of $140, it doesn't come cheap, but our test results indicate that Be quiet!'s first enclosure might just be worth it.

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.

Their DK-01X is a desk in which you can install a complete system – but it doesn't come cheap. We were one of the few tech publications lucky enough to receive a review sample.

    Intel Core i7 5775C review: Broadwell on your desktop At the start of June, Intel introduced the Broadwell generation processors for desktops. For laptops, these 5th generation Core processors have already been available for a while, for desktops it proved to be unclear if Intel would make chips from this generation available at all. This has now finally happened with the Core i7 5775C and Core i5 5675C. Both processors are mainly special because of the integrated graphics card: the Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200 is a so-called "GT3e" versio... Read more

    More pixels on the same surface for more work space and a sharper image - that's what 24 inch 'wide quad hd' or WQHD-displays promise us. We have now tested three models with those attributes, produced by Acer, ASUS and BenQ. The panel we used is the same, but the results certainly are not.

    GTA V performance review take 3: how well does the game perform with an AMD CPU?

    Grand Theft Auto V, also known as GTA V, appears to be turning into the most popular PC game of 2015. Back when we first published our performance review featuring 23 GPUs, we immediately received the request if we could also publish scores that one would obtain when using mid-range CPUs, which we did in a second performance review. Comments on this review led to yet another question: how well does the game run on an AMD FX processor? To answer this question, we once again instructed the Hardware.Info Test Lab crew to work their magic on this game for a couple of days.
