Skyrim on Frostbite ... no not the engine

10/29/2014 - 12:45

Last week RPS engaged in a bit of a theme, reviewing various survival games which is a genre which has really taken off this year.  Perhaps the most interesting was this article describing life with mods that make Skyrim into a much colder place to...

Building a new PC for the holidays?

10/29/2014 - 12:19

The Tech Report have updated their system build recommendations for the latter part of 2014, with changes to their system components as well as a reluctant recommendation for Win 8.1 as Win7 is scheduled for EOL in the New Year.   The Core i7-...

Surface Server, WinARM, WARM? What shall we call it

10/29/2014 - 11:22

No new Intel for you this year

10/27/2014 - 11:35

Intel's release schedules have been slowing down, unfortunately in a large part that is due to the fact that the only competition they face in certain market segments is themselves.  For high end servers it looks like we won't see Haswell-EX...

XFX Double D R9 290X

10/24/2014 - 13:44

If you picked up a G-SYNC display already then the EVGA GeForce GTX 970 ACX2 @ $330 is a good deal.  On the other hand the R9 290X is undisputably faster and with the current sale price of $300 after rebate is a far better buy!  The XFX Double...
