    Alien: Isolation review: tested with 20 GPUs

    Alien: Isolation, the latest game in the popular Alien franchise, was released on 7 October. Developed by The Creative Assembly, the game is described as being a "first-person survival horror stealth game".

  • Interview with DJI: Future of the Phantom quadcopters

    Review Review - Wednesday 10/15/2014 - 02:45 AM

    Interview with DJI: Future of the Phantom quadcopters Quadcopters - or ‘small drones’ as they are also known - are enjoying a meteoritic rise in popularity. One brand in particular appears to have made a name for itself in the market. Just like ‘GoPro’ for many people has become synonymous to action camera, ‘DJI Phantom’ increasingly seems to be the first and indeed only quadcopter that comes to mind. The Phantom is a small aircraft with four propellers, a built-in flight controller with gyroscopes, compass and GPS and a matching white... Read more

  • Benefit of OC Socket on ASUS' X99 motherboards proven

    News News - Saturday 10/04/2014 - 04:05 AM

    Benefit of OC Socket on ASUS' X99 motherboards proven Back in our launch review of fifteen Intel X99 motherboards for Haswell-E processors we weren't entirely sure about the purpose of ASUS' OC Socket, which contains more pins than the sockets other manufacturers incorporate in their boards.

    ASUS GeForce GTX 980 Strix review: the first non-reference GTX 980

    As a hardware enthusiast, you will no doubt know that Nvidia introduced the GeForce GTX 980 and 970 a few weeks ago. Within our extensive review, we wrote that Nvidia let us know that all GeForce 980 boards initially available for purchase would simply be reference models. Nothing could be further from the truth, as ASUS was able to provide us with their GeForce GTX 980 Strix, a GTX 980 with a custom cooler and PCB design, just a week after the GTX 980's initial release. Is this video card a better choice than the reference model?
