Today we expect Apple to launch their new iPhone 6 models, actually in just a couple of hours. Working iPhone 6 images have been leaked by NWE. These images show a working iPhone 6 Gold Edition.
Google’s Glass has been invite only for quite sometime until earlier this year when they started selling their “Explorer Edition” to anyone willing to pay the $1500 price point. It looks like Google is expanding the availability of the wearable as they are now offering the “Explorer Edition” on the Google Play Store.
At IFA, a global trade show for consumer electronics and home appliances, Intel launched the new Intel Core M processor, which will power new 2 in 1 devices from a variety of manufacturers including: Acer, ASUS, Dell, HP, Lenovo and Toshiba. Delivering the optimal blend of mobility and performance, Intel’s new processor was purpose-built for amazing performance in the thinnest, fanless ultra-mobile devices.
With only four days left until Apple’s official announcement the internet is littered with iPhone 6 rumors. Interestingly enough I received an e-mail today from a company that makes mobile accessories. They were announcing their new products for the iPhone 6 and the press shots have actual photos of the phone itself in the accessories! These would be the first legitimate photos of Apple’s upcoming iPhone 6.
ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the limited-edition Ares III, the world’s fastest water-cooled gaming graphics card with a slim, single-slot form factor. Powered by dual AMD Radeon Hawaii XT R9 290X GPUs factory-overclocked at 1030 MHz, and boasting 8 GB of GDDR5 memory with a clock speed of 5000 MHz, ROG Ares III delivers blazingly-fast performance.
NVIDIA today announced that it has filed complaints against Samsung and Qualcomm at the International Trade Commission and in the U.S. District Court in Delaware, alleging that the companies are both infringing NVIDIA GPU patents covering technology including programmable shading, unified shaders and multithreaded parallel processing.
Gigabyte has introduced the entry-level H97-DS3H motherboard. It based on the Intel H97 Express chipset and has an ATX form-factor (305 mm x 190 mm). One thing that many people will appreciate about this motherboard is that is has a mixture of legacy and modern connectivity options.
G.SKILL is releasing the world’s fastest DDR4 memory kit at a breath-taking and neck-breaking 3333MHz!!! With a total capacity of 16GB (4GBx4), the system can take full advantage of quad channel mode and crank up the bandwidth speed to new heights. Not to mention the CAS timings are maintained at a nice CL16-16-16-36, and fully validated on the newest ASUS Rampage V Extreme X99 motherboard!
I have always been a fan of Micro-ATX motherboards. They give you many of the same great features you find in ATX motherboards in a smaller form factor that is great for building a LAN rig. In the case of the Intel X99 chipset we have seen a couple of companies release Micro-ATX motherboards and EVGA is one such company. While having a Micro-ATX X99 motherboard does not take advantage of the extra PCI-Express lanes the platform offers you can easily run dual graphics (x16/x16) or 3-way graphics (x8/x8/x8) with the three included PCI-Express slots on this motherboard. On top of that you are going to get the higher CPU core count that the new Haswell-E processors have an DDR4 memory support. The EVGA X99 Micro also packs in six SATA 6GB/s ports, a 6 phase digital VRM, six USB 3.0 ports (4 rear / 2 header) and Intel Gigabit Ethernet. If you are looking to build an extreme LAN rig this could be the perfect motherboard for you. Read on as we check it out!
