Do you want faster WiFi? This is how you get faster WiFi!

06/30/2016 - 16:53

Router firmware upgrades should be arriving soon to upgrade you to 802.11ac Wave 2.  You may get support for MU-MIMO after upgrading and the new version could well double your bandwidth.  It should also have less interference as it will make...

Get your RX 480 reviews while they're hot!

06/29/2016 - 17:26

Having already read through Ryan's review of the RX 480 while listening to Raja on the live stream you might be curious what others thought of the card.  Perhaps there was one of your preferred configurations or games we did not cover or maybe...

A new card, a new driver - Crimson Edition 16.6.2 is here

06/29/2016 - 14:54

The labelling might be a bit confusing but this new driver is for all AMD cards from the Radeon HD 7700 series and higher, including the brand new RX 480.  It adds the Radeon WattMan overclocking tool, a Crossfire Toggle for easily switching between...

I see there's still an insect loose in my station ... Terri Brosius returns as SHODAN

06/29/2016 - 14:40

The System Shock reboot kicks off today in the usual place for such things and a pre-alpha demo has appeared on Steam, GOG and the Humble Store.  Chris Avellone will be a part of the project, along with several members of the Fallout New Vegas team...

Doctor, treat thyself .. or at least the hospital please

06/29/2016 - 13:36

For the past few years we have heard about some rather horrific security vulnerabilities in hospitals and sadly this has not changed at all.  Indeed many hospitals are still on older, unsupported OSes such as WinXP that most security software no...

Cherry's MX RGB Speed swiches in the wild, the Corsair K70 RGB Rapidfire

06/28/2016 - 16:30

We heard about the new Rapidfire switches from Cherry back in April and today we get a glimpse at how they perform.  The Tech Report tested out this rather expensive keyboard and noticed an immediate difference from the Cherry switches they used...

Cooler Master MasterBox 5, Canada Model because that makes it cooler

06/28/2016 - 13:57

The Cooler Master MasterBox 5 is not a small case, at 450x220x440mm it will fit up to eATX motherboards, radiators of up to 280mm on the front, or 360mm with an adapter.  The lower price point means that there is a lack of grommets, however the...

06/28/2016 - 12:35

Testing out twelve 9100 NVMe flash drives is not easy as it requires some interesting configurations to make the testing worth while, sticking them all in a box and running ATTO is not going to create valuable information.  Those custom...

Frame Time Monday; this time with the GTX 1080

06/27/2016 - 16:55

You have already seen our delve into the frame times provided by the GTX 1080 but perhaps you would like another opinion.  The Tech Report also uses the FCAT process which we depend upon to bring you frame time data, however they present the data in...

06/27/2016 - 14:40

[H]ard|OCP has been conducting tests using a variety of CPUs to see how well DX12 distributes load between cores as compared to DX11.  Their final article which covers the 6700K and 6950X was done a little differently and so cannot be directly...
