  • 500-550 watt power supplies review: 40 models tested

    Review Review - 38 minutes ago

    500-550 watt power supplies review: 40 models tested AMD is lagging behind a little, but Intel and Nvidia clearly show what the latest trend is: better performance at a lower level of power consumption. As a result, even a 500 watt power supply is more than enough for a PC with a powerful processor and graphics card. The price of such a PSU might be as low as three tenners, or as high as 140 euros. We tested 40 individual models in order to identify the differences. Although Intel's fourth generation "Haswell" Core processors only offered a mod... Read more

    AMD FX-6300 vs. Intel Core i3 4330: Budget Gaming CPU Deathmatch Willing to spend around 100 euros on a processor?

    3x Lenovo Y50-70 review: does WD's SSHD work as advertised?

    This article features three almost identical laptops, but with good reason. Sometimes, you may run into somewhat unusual results while testing products, which demands additional research. This takes time, but as far as we're concerned, it's well worth the effort. We encountered such unusual results for the Lenovo Y50-70, which is why we ended up introducing a total of three test models to our test bench.

It's safe to say that the "ideal home server" does not exist, because its intended use differs widely among our readers.

    HD Video Editing PC - November 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.
