  • Samsung 850 Evo SSD 120GB/250GB/500GB/1TB review: best SSD for the money?

    Review Review - Tuesday 03/03/2015 - 09:59 AM

    There are two SSD series which sold extremely well during the last year: the Samsung 840 Evo series and the Crucial MX100 series. Perhaps the most important factor was the extremely competitive prices of both series. Although other manufacturers are certainly trying their best, the battle for the favour of the SSD-purchasing consumer appears to become more and more about Samsung and Crucial. Recently, the 850 Evo series was introduced as the successor to Samsung's 840 Evo SSDs. These new Evo drives should be faster and (even) more reliable than their predecessors. Will Samsung be able to break Crucial's stride? We have extensively tested the complete 850 Evo series – that is, the 120 GB, 250 GB, 500 GB, and 1 TB models – in order to be able to answer that question.

    PC Buyer's Guide PC Buyer's Guide - Saturday 02/28/2015 - 09:00 AM

    Gaming PC - February 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

    HD Video Editing PC - February 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
  • Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 review: ASUS, EVGA, Gigabyte, Inno3D, MSI and Zotac put to the test

    Review Review - Thursday 02/26/2015 - 07:52 AM

    Last month Nvidia introduced the GeForce GTX 960, a new mid-range graphics card that features a level of performance more than sufficient to run all modern games at good quality on Full HD and a remarkably low power consumption. Since then, we've tested six GTX 960 cards: in this review we'll be comparing the ASUS GeForce GTX 960 Strix 2GB, the EVGA GeForce GTX 960 SSC 2GB, the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 960 G1 Gaming 2GB, the Inno3D GeForce GTX 960 iChill Ultra 2GB, the MSI GeForce GTX 960 Gaming 2GB and the Zotac GeForce GTX 960 AMP!

  • Gigabyte revision issue: new developments, yet no official response

    Gigabyte revision issue: new developments, yet no official response

    In late December, we posted an article on Hardware.Info in which we detailed how motherboard manufacturer Gigabyte develops newer revisions of existing motherboards that offer less functionality and/or worse performance, despite being sold using the exact same product codes and EAN codes (bar codes). Because we live in a world where orders between webshops, distributors, importers, and manufacturers are automatically linked, this might very well result in you receiving a product that's different from what you actually thought you were purchasing. In our article, we used a Gigabyte GA-B85M-HD3 motherboard to prove that there are substantial differences between revisions, both with regard to visual and operational aspects.

    Crucial BX100 and MX200 250GB / 500GB SSD review: sandwiching the MX100

    Crucial introduced their new BX100 and MX200 SSDs during CES. The BX100 is a new budget series which is priced even lower than the extremely popular MX100 series. The MX200 series, on the other hand, has clearly been developed by Crucial to take on Samsung's 850 Evo series. We tested the 250 GB and 500 GB models of both series.

    Sapphire Radeon R9 290X Vapor-X 8GB and 4GB review: is 8GB useful?

    AMD recently announced its hardware partners could start offering their own versions of the Radeon R9 290X with 8GB memory. Sapphire was the first (and as of yet the only) to be able to offer us a 290X with 8GB memory, namely the Sapphire Radeon R9 290X Vapor-X. We put the graphics card to the test and compared it to the 4GB edition to find out whether the added 4GB has a sizeable impact or not.

  • 15x Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 and 980 review: what card to pick?

    Review Review - Saturday 02/07/2015 - 08:46 AM

    15x Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 and 980 review: what card to pick? We have reviewed a lot of GeForce GTX 970 and GTX 980 cards over the last few months. We thought it was time to take score and look at what card is actually the best one to pick up. Both the GeForce GTX 980 as well as (maybe even more so) the GTX 970 have been popular since the day they went on sale, The GTX 980 is without a doubt the fastest single GPU graphics card that you can get at the moment, and more importantly Nvidia has managed to keep the excellent performance available at a very acc...

    Hardware.Info Taiwan Tour: In Win

    During our trip to Taiwan in the beginning of November of last year, we were also given the opportunity to visit In Win, a case manufacturer which has recently been producing an impressive amount of rather special enclosures. In the meantime, they mainly focus on making lots and lots of cases for OEM parties. They have multiple factories, and invited us to visit not one but two of them. We were more than happy to oblige.

    Test: the GeForce GTX 960 is the best HTPC GPU of this moment

    Last Thursday, Nvidia introduced their GeForce GTX 960, and with it, the world's first graphics card that supports HDMI 2.0 and comes equipped with a hardware-based H.265 (or HEVC) video decoder. As such, this graphics card would be the ideal GPU for a future proof HTPC, at least in theory. We investigated whether it holds up in practice.

    Review Review - Thursday 01/22/2015 - 08:58 AM

    Nvidia has introduced their new GTX 960 today, with a SRP of around $ 199 and meant to allow optimum Full HD resolution gaming. Compared to its predecessors the GTX 760 and 660 the card is not only (a lot) faster according to Nvidia, but also uses a lot less power. This would make it the "overclockers dream card" according to the manufacturer.
