  • 4K Gaming PC - May 2015

    PC Buyer's Guide PC Buyer's Guide - yesterday at 11:59 PM

    4K Gaming PC - May 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

    PC Buyer's Guide PC Buyer's Guide - Monday 05/25/2015 - 11:59 PM

    4K Video Editing PC - May 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

    Assassin's Creed Rogue: tested with 23 GPUs (including frame times)

    Assassin's Creed Rogue is already the seventh entry in the Assassin's Creed series. After its initial release for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in late 2014, PC gamers got to join in the fun during March of this year. We tested the game using 23 modern GPUs, ranging from the humble AMD Radeon R7 240 to the Nvidia GeForce Titan X, in order to determine which graphics cards are capable of producing playable framerates at three different resolutions and with two different quality presets.

  • 600-650 watt power supply round-up: 25 models put to the test

    Review Review - Tuesday 05/19/2015 - 11:59 PM

    600-650 watt power supply round-up: 25 models put to the test

    When building a powerful system, we'd recommend going with a power supply of above average capacity. Although a 500W unit is actually capable of powering a pretty beefy system these days, choosing a 600-650W unit does offer a little more flexibility at only a modest price increase. Therefore, we tested 25 such power supplies, with prices ranging from $30 / £22 / €30 to $150 / £120 / €150.

    Entry-level PC - May 2015 Our guidelines for the Entry-level PC category are as follows. The entire computer system, excluding OS, should not exceed $500. Its primary, but not only, function is to provide a smooth and enjoyable online experience. This means that the cheapest processors won’t be enough, as modern web pages and internet applications do demand some processing power. Additionally, the system has to be able to efficiently perform internet-related tasks. This includes basic photo editing (cropping and re... Read more

  • Evolve: tested with 23 GPUs (including frametimes)

    Review Review - Friday 05/15/2015 - 11:59 PM

    Evolve: tested with 23 GPUs (including frametimes) Evolve is a so-called asymmetrical FPS multiplayer game: on one side you have four human characters, controlled by four separate players (or a player supported by computercontrolled bots), on the other side a monster, also controlled by a player. Both sides play a game of cat and mouse, although in reality it's more of a hunt for the monster by humans, which can fight back with strength. There are multiple monsters to choose from and plenty of well-designed, atmospherical maps. The humans are al... Read more

  • Battlefield Hardline: tested with 23 GPUs (including frametimes)

    Review Review - Tuesday 05/05/2015 - 05:39 AM

    Battlefield Hardline: tested with 23 GPUs (including frametimes) Hardline is the latest addition to the popular Battlefield series. Instead of the military setting of the previous games, this game is all about the world of crime (fighting). In single-player mode you're on the side of the police, in multiplayer you can also do your bidding as a criminal. Bank robberies and hostage situations, chases and of course the necessary shootouts are what this game is all about. The game uses the Frostbite 3 engine, just like Battlefield 4. Just like that game the gamep... Read more

    Home server - April 2015 The home server. It's subject to heated debate on Hardware.Info. Opinions differ widely on subjects like the necessity for keeping the design compact, the advantage of hot-swap bays, acceptable energy consumption, how much CPU power is needed, what type of storage and so on. It's safe to say that the "ideal home server" does not exist, because its intended use differs widely among our readers. This doesn't mean that we can't provide a good guide to effective home servers. There are two option... Read more
  • Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X SLI / 3-way SLI / 4-way SLI review: insane performance!

    Review Review - Wednesday 04/22/2015 - 04:02 AM

    Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan X SLI / 3-way SLI / 4-way SLI review: insane performance! Approximately halfway through March, Nvidia introduced their GeForce GTX Titan X, a monstrous graphics card with a price tag of about $999 / £870 / €1200 that is currently the fastest board out there. We saw that the Titan X boasts so much graphics horsepower that it can run many games at the Ultra HD / 4K resolution. Regrettably, combining Ultra HD with the highest possible in-game settings proves to be too much in most games, even for the mighty Titan X. So how can you solve this annoyi... Read more
