Samsung 840 Series 120GB Solid State Drive Review

Samsung is a very large player in the solid state drive market, but you may not have known. This is because they sell their drives in bulk to companies like Apple to use in their products. That is why they are not an known in the consumer or enthusiast market. In fact Samsung is the largest producer of flash memory in the world. One thing that is great about Samsung solid state drives is that everything inside is made by Samsung, the NAND, controller and DRAM cache. This makes it very easy for Samsung to correct issues or fix problems because everything is done in-house. We saw this on Samsung's 830 Series solid state drive and the big difference between the 830 and 840 is that the 840 Series uses TLC NAND chips instead of MLC. We will get to the difference in just a bit. The controller on the 840 Series has also been updated. The 120GB version we are testing today has read and write speeds of 530MB/s and 130MB/s respectively so it sort of fits into the entry-level segment. Let's take a look... ThinkComputers

Sapphire HD 7790 Dual-X Overclocked Edition Graphics Card Review

Last month AMD announced that they would not be releasing new high end products until later in the year, stating that they were extremely happy with the price and performance of their Radeon 7000 series. To be fair to them there is little doubt that the likes of ASUS ARES II 7990 is the fastest single PCB solution around and the 7970 offers a competitive product in the high end single GPU segment... assuming you can't afford a TITAN.

That doesn't mean that there are not gaps to be filled or improvements which can be made to the product stack until the next series is released. That is where the focus of today's review enters... designed to replace the 7850 1GB in the AMD 7000 series, so between 7770 and 7850 2GB, this new product is AMDs attempt to offer a mainstream GPU with exceptional price to performance ratio...

Tt eSPORTS Level 10 M Gaming Mouse Review

Tt eSPORTS has been around for some time now, and they offer a great deal of gaming gear. Today, we will take a thorough look at their Level 10 M gaming mouse that was designed in collaboration with BMW's design department in the US. The result is a very odd-looking mouse by normal standards, with several novel features. Currently priced at $99, it is also one of the most expensive mice on the market. This mouse is, aside from its BMW exterior, equipped with the Avago ADNS-9800 laser sensor-the best laser sensor currently available. It is capable of tracking at up to 8200 DPI and has a very high failure speed. The mouse also has seven buttons and a four-way slider button... techPowerUp

AMD Radeon HD 7790 CrossFire Video Card Review

The most interesting feature of sub-$200 graphics cards is their ability to transform from mid-range single-card solutions into high-end dual-card ones through the use of multi-GPU technologies like AMD CrossFire and NVIDIA SLI. With dual-GPU capable motherboards not being particularly expensive and with guaranteed support for AMD CrossFire on both Intel and AMD platform motherboards, the prospect of buying a $150 Radeon HD 7790 graphics card now to keep up with the latest games before dropping in another $150 later (subject to future price-cuts) for a solution that performs on-par with some of today's high-end solutions, instead of spending $300 in the future, seems like a sensible thing to do if you can live with the pitfalls inherent to multi-GPU solutions. The bigger question, though, is exactly how well the Radeon HD 7790 scales in CrossFire with today's available titles, to give you an idea of what to expect... techPowerUp
