Results: 3D Mark Fire Strike

The latest benchmark from Futuremark can certainly hammer on the latest video cards.  I run the tests at the standard setting so we can set a good baseline for how a card SHOULD perform.  AMD and NVIDIA work very hard to tune their products to...

Setup and Errata

02/22/2015 - 20:50

I am comparing this card to the MSI GTX 760, Asus R9 280X, and the MSI R9 270X.  All of these cards are more expensive than the GTX 750 Ti, but not by a whole lot.  This area is very tightly constrained when it comes to money.  An extra $...

STRIX GTX 750 Ti Continued

G-SYNC support is present when using the included DisplayPort connection.  I do not believe that this port supports the latest DP 1.2a+ specification but, depending on how the winds blow with the bundled Adaptive V-SYNC in that standard, we could...

ARM Introduces Cortex-A72, Mali-T880, and More!

02/04/2015 - 00:22

ARM has an interesting history of releasing products.  The company was once in the shadowy background of the CPU world, but with the explosion of mobile devices and its relevance in that market, ARM has had to adjust how it approaches the public...

01/10/2015 - 17:52

I was invited to a meeting with Samsung on my last day at CES.  The Samsung Pavilion was absolutely packed, but I was able to see a handful of products that should pique the interest of people that are passionate about their monitor technology....

CES 2015: Intel Releases 14 nm Cherry Trail SOC

01/05/2015 - 20:30

It wouldn’t be CES if there wasn’t an Intel release.  Today they are releasing their latest 14 nm Cherry Trail SOC.  Very little information has been released about this part, but it is the follow-up to the fairly successful Bay...

NVIDIA Announces Tegra X1: Maxwell Hits Ultra-Low Power

01/05/2015 - 01:18

NVIDIA seems to like begin on a one year cycle with their latest Tegra products.  Many years ago we were introduced to the Tegra 2, and the year after that the Tegra 3, and the year after that the Tegra 4.  Well, NVIDIA did spice up their...

Asus Crossblade Ranger Review: FM2+ gets the ROG Treatment

12/10/2014 - 22:01

I have been impressed by the Asus ROG boards for quite a few years now.  I believe my first encounter was with the Crosshair IV Formula, followed by the CH IV Extreme with that crazy Lucidlogix controller.  These were really outstanding boards...

Conclusion

12/10/2014 - 17:38

The FM2+ platform can be a tough sell.  The APUs are relatively inexpensive, but the CPU performance with a maximum of four threads often has other users looking to the AM3+ platform, or just at Intel in general.  The GPU performance of the...
