We were first given a taste of NVIDIA G-SYNC technology over a year and a half ago and it was definitely quite a sweet dish. Like competing solutions from AMD (FreeSync), G-SYNC aims to rid gamers of synchronization-related maladies like VSync input lag, stuttering and screen tearing, providing instead a buttery...

When NVIDIA launched the GeForce GTX Titan X a few weeks back, it did a couple of things. In addition to releasing the fastest single-GPU-powered graphics card we have seen to date, it also created a huge gap in NVIDIA’s desktop GPU line-up. The GeForce GTX 980 can be had for about $530 give or take a few bucks (though that will be changing... Read more...
Owners of Halo: The Master Chief Collection for the Xbox One can now download Remnant, a re-imagined version of the Halo 2 multiplayer map, and Halo 3: ODST, Microsoft and 343 Industries announced. The latter was previously promised as part of an apology for the many problems that plagued the massive Halo collection... Read more...
Given their importance, it'd be easy to believe that an institution such as the IRS would have sufficient security measures in place to protect our data - the tax information of everyone in the United States. As we discovered last week though, that's not at all the case. We learned on Wednesday that at least... Read more...
Despite the wealth of information that's come out of Microsoft these past few months on its upcoming Windows 10, it's remained tight-lipped with regards to two things most people want to know: what it will cost, and when it will be released? For that reason, I'm sure it's none-too-thrilled that etailer Newegg took it upon itself to give Read more...
Penny pinching T-Mobile subscribers can now score Microsoft's entry-level Lumia 435 smartphone for less than $50 ($49.88 to be exact) from Walmart. That's about half the price it was selling for when it first turned up in the U.S. about three months ago for $95, and it's an off-contract price -- no subsidized... Read more...
Leave it to Apple to write off what many see as a bug or a decrease in functionality as a “feature.” Maybe it’s part of the reality distortion field (RDF) that we briefly mentioned yesterday, but Apple is definitely stretching things quite a bit this time around. When the Apple Watch first started arriving at... Read more...
As we discovered in March, NVIDIA's GeForce GTX TITAN X is a seriously powerful graphics card. Under its hood are 8 billion transistors -- 50% more than the GTX 980. Despite that, it shares the same exact form-factor and reference cooler as the GTX 980. While that's sufficient enough, given that reference cooler is... Read more...
At Google's I/O conference, held late this week, Qualcomm announced that the next-generation Project Tango platform is going to sport its Snapdragon 810 processor, which packs in the very capable Adreno 430 GPU. As we've covered before, Project Tango is Google's upcoming smartphone and tablet platform that revolves... Read more...
Microsoft is nearing the release of its Windows 10 operating system, which is expected to debut by the end of summer. Typically a new Windows launch would mean a spike in PC sales, and while that may still be the case, the new OS isn't likely to be a cure-all for what's become a stagnant market. Instead, worldwide PC... Read more...
Just a little over a week since it released build 10122 of its Windows 10 Preview, Microsoft hits us with another: build 10130. As with 10122, 10130 is part of the fast ring, so in order to get it, you'll need to make sure that's the option chosen on the update screen of the Settings app. As it alluded to in the...

It seems that it was just yesterday that someone had to know a thing or two about software and programming to wreak havoc on fine upstanding Internet citizens via malware incursion. Ah, the good old days. Nostalgia aside, though, one cannot help but feel rattled by the news that security researchers at McAfee have discovered new software with Read more...
It was reported late this week that Apple is looking to make its voice heard in the growing augmented reality chorus with the purchase of Metaio. Metaio, an augmented reality firm that dates all the way back to 2003, gives Apple instant access to technology that many firms these days are embracing. Just this week... Read more...
AMD on Thursday introduced the world to its A10-7870K APU, otherwise known as Godavari, though it's actually a light refresh of the existing Kaveri core. Codenames aside, the A10-7870K APU is a compelling option with a slight speed bump in clock frequency over the A10-7850K (3.9GHz to 4.1GHz versus 3.7GHz to 4.0GHz)... Read more...
