NVIDIA's top-end GeForce GTX 980 graphics card is powerful. So powerful, in fact, that I've felt confident in calling its performance "drool-worthy".

One of the biggest downfalls of overclocking competitions is that they're usually very exclusive. Not everyone can afford hardware that's effectively going to be slaughtered, and it's impossible to compete with champions who are handed over gear from companies like Intel without much hesitation. It's for this reason... Read more...
It might "just" be a Pentium, but I consider the G3258 "Anniversary Edition" to be one of the most interesting chips Intel's released in a while. It's a well-known fact that enthusiasts love ekeing as much performance out of their parts as possible, and there's just something about doing that to a sub-$100 part that... Read more...

When we evaluated NVIDIA’s Maxwell-based GeForce GTX 750 and 750 Ti a few weeks back, we lauded the GPUs for their competitive performance and class-leading power efficiency.

As much as we like building a PC inside a ginormous enclosure decked out with all the amenities, we'll concede that there's a certain allure to small form factor (SFF) systems, especially with today's hardware. Unfortunately, ultra compact rigs are usually gimped by weak graphics, which is what makes Gigabyte's new... Read more...

A humorous thing about CES is that every year, there's always a couple of buzzwords that you can't ignore. "3D" has been a big one in recent years, as has been "cloud", "ultrabooks", "superphones' and so on. This year, a major buzzword is one that really caught fire throughout 2012: "4K". We're of course talking about... Read more...
