  • HD Video Editing PC - April 2015

    PC Buyer's Guide PC Buyer's Guide - Thursday 04/16/2015 - 10:00 AM

    HD Video Editing PC - April 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

  • AMD FreeSync review: first displays by Acer and BenQ tested

    Review Review - Friday 04/10/2015 - 03:36 AM

    More than a year after the technology's initial announcement, the first displays that feature support for AMD FreeSync – AMD's answer to Nvidia G-Sync, which should ensure that the output of the display is fully synchronized with the processing speed of the graphics card – have finally arrived. We put two of the first FreeSync displays to the test: Acer's XG270HU and BenQ's XL2730Z, two 27″ WQHD displays.

    4K Gaming PC - April 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.

  • 17 CPU water coolers test: better than air cooling?

    Review Review - Saturday 04/04/2015 - 02:51 AM

    17 CPU water coolers test: better than air cooling? Ready made watercooling sets have become increasingly more popular in the past few years, at least as much with manufacturers as they have with consumers. They're seemingly quite similar, but there are definitely differences, as our test on 17 of them proves. Especially in high-end PCs with for example a Socket 2011 (v3) processor we see that in our Hardware.Info User Systems more and more people opt to go for a watercooler instead of air cooling. The reliability of the ready made watercooling ... Read more

Keep in mind that you will pay extra for that overclocking potential. Having the right accessories is also importa... Read more
  • Eight quad-channel DDR4 kits reviewed: memory for Haswell-E

    Review Review - Saturday 03/28/2015 - 04:55 AM

    Eight quad-channel DDR4 kits reviewed: memory for Haswell-E During the second half of last year, Intel introduced the Haswell-E CPU series, and along with it, the first processor platform to support DDR4 memory. Plenty of time for us to compare a number of DDR4 memory kits. We put eight of them to the test. The new DDR4 memory type has been engineered to operate at lower voltages and to (in the long run) operate at much higher clock frequencies than DDR3. The first official DDR4 standard, which is of course supported by Intel's Haswell-E series of CPU... Read more

If you want to connect wirelessly at "ac-speeds", you can do so using a USB 802.11ac adapter. We tested no less than 21 of them.

  • 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.
