OCZ Trion 100 480GB SSD Review

featured

OCZ has put out some great SSD drives over the years. From high-end enthusiast drives in the Vertex and Vector lines to the smoking fast PCIe based Revo drives (and let me tell you, we are looking forward to the PCIe based NVME drives too!). OCZ also has their 'bang for the buck' line in the Agility and new Arc series. Now they have an even more price oriented line in the Trion 100 series. The Trion line of drives are a more 'read performance oriented' series versus write performance when compared to the Arc and other OCZ high-end enthusiast SSDs. SSD drives like this are good for a slew of things, but storage and gaming come to mind first as that's a high read environment with minimal writes. Read More

Overclockers.com will start off with an offering from HIS, specifically the R9 380 IceQ X2 OC 2GB. HIS strapped on their IceQ X2 cooler on the R9 380 and gives it a slight bump in clock speed.

MSI GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G Video Card Review

featured

Today, you will be reading about one of the fastest single GPU cards that NVIDIA has put out in its history - the GTX 980 Ti. And also what its partner, MSI, has done to improve upon the reference model. The GTX 980 Ti is a peculiar card in a very positive way for consumers, because of its overall performance being so close to the mighty Titan X, yet the cost is about 33% less. With the previous Titan, its very high cost could be accepted by consumers because of its ability to switch into double precision mode for better compute performance, typically in business applications. But the Titan X does not have this ability and it still has the high price tag. In comes the GTX 980 Ti. Read More
