Nvidia today announced the Nvidia Shield Tablet, an 8 inches Tablet empowered by a Tegra SoC. basically this what the Nvidia shield launch should have been in the first place, instead of a hand-held a nice tablet that oozes functionality and features.

Corsair recently released a USB stick, all 3.0 compatible and it's called the Flash Voyager GTX . That surely hints towards a nice caliber.

Join us as we test and review the ASUS Essence STX II 7.1 sound card. Asus has some very big shoes to fill and a possibly a more impressive feat of surpassing such well known audio cards, the questions stands will they succeed?
A while ago Nvidia launched the GeForce GTX Titan Black which we review. We never tested it as it was supposed to be a professional series and targeted card. Nvidia's Board partners however are slowly re-releasing this product as a gaming graphics card, as well as Nvidia who is plugging the product in their gaming benchmarks on their own website. As such, we figured that it is about time we review this puppy as well. Meet Joe Black, ehm Geforce GTX Titan Black.

Join us in a very dark review of the fastest graphics card on the planet. It's hotter than hell, demonic and hinted as a disciple of the Devil himself, yes we review the PowerColor Radeon R9 295x2 Devil13 with 8 GB graphics memory. The card is a dual-GPU based graphics card that comes with two Hawaii XT GPUs, these two GPUs are fully enabled on all Shader Processors and run up-to a cool 1018 MHz each. So that's over 12 Billion transistors, 5632 Shader Processors and a good 11.5 TFLOPS of compute performance slapped onto a single PCB.

We review the Pentium G3258 (also dubbed Pentium-K) processor. The Pentium 20th Anniversary Edition / G3258 processorfeatures an unlocked multiplier and will be all about nostalgia on a modern CPU socket with tremendous OC potential. That's right, you can seat this Pentium processor into Socket LGA1150 and then have some great fun. We actually managed to overclock this 3200 MHz processor, towards 4800 MHz!

AMD recently added a new feature to their Catalyst 14.6 Beta drivers, you can now mix several monitor resolutions and still create an Eyefinity (multi-screen) gaming setup. Funky stuff, and sure we wanted to check that out. So we will take two Full HD monitors and combine them with a WFHD (2560x1080) resolution monitor. The end result is something wide, very wide. We will pair the setup with a Radeon R9 295x2 and will show you that multi-monitor goodness for your gaming experience.
We are pleased to state that Guru3D now offers you our quarterly PC Buyers Guide! This is the 2014 Summer Edition and it outlines a set of recommendations of products we feel are great components to build yourself a nice gaming rig. We have three different system recommendations to choose from so read all out it after the break...

We review the dual-GPU GeForce GTX Titan Z. The card is much talked about as Nvidia introduced the product at prices that are incredibly high. Then Nvidia decided to refuse to send out samples to the media. To this day that fact has remained the same, however once cards get into retail they inevitably will end up with the media regardless of what Nvidia wants. So today we test the dual GPU based Titan Z. A card that created a lot of controversy, as such we'll go in-depth once again to see whether or not this 2800 EUR product even has a chance to compete with the 1300 EUR Radeon R9 295x2.

In this review we test the GeForce GTX 780 Gaming OC 6 GB graphics card from MSI, the OC edition specifically. The customized product is equipped with a massive cooler that can be air-cooled, this unit comes with a whopping 6 GB graphics memory (rather handy with Watch Dogs we admit) and a very hip looking cooler.

We review the Corsair Force LX 256 GB SSD. Corsair recently released this new addition to their SSD lineup. The series is to compete with Samsung and Micron mostly, in both price and performance. The end result is a very capable and fast SSD that can keep up with the big guns in the market, yet remains priced in a sweet spot.
We review the Intel Core i7 4790K processor developed under the Devils Canyon architecture from the Haswell refresh series. Join us as we look at the performance of this processor in a wide variety of benchmark, will it be noticeably more tweakable than say the Core i7 4770K? Let's find out shall we?

We review the Linksys WRT1900AC Dual Band Wi-Fi Router from Belkin, this dual-core processor monster of a router recently was introduced. This product surely brings the nostalgia of the old WRT54G back to the table as the design is very similar. But make no mistake, the new Linksys WRT1900AC is very fast, very sexy and offers incredible performance and range on both LAN and WIFI.

In this review we test the GeForce GTX 780 STRIX 6 GB Graphics Card from ASUS, the OC edition specifically. The customized product is equipped with a massive cooler that can be air-cooled, this unit comes with a whopping 6 GB graphics memory (rather handy with Watch Dogs we admit) and a verry hip looking cooler. As you can see, the DNA of the DirectCU II cooler is there, but the design is a little bit more well .. let's call it military ? Up-to 70 Degrees C the cooler doesn't even rotate, how's that for silence on an enthusiast class product ?

We review the all new Noctua NH-D15 dual-fan cooler. The new flagship product from Noctua is huge in both size and performance. The successor for the NH-D14 premium CPU cooler has a six heatpipe dual radiator design to improve on cooling performance and noise levels. Obviously what catches the eye is that dual radiator allowing you to use one or even two 140mm fans (included).
We benchmark Watch Dogs on the PC. Join us in this preliminary benchmark performance review where we look at this game from a graphic card point of view, with a handful of graphics cards. We look at DX11 performance and how well these cards perform versus image quality settings. We will also address the game problems with graphics memory.
