ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition: Intended for the overclocking elite

As soon as some time passes without ASUS giving their competition a “homework”, we can safely expect an avalanche of exclusive products. This time it's the new motherboard which will make most of overclockers around the world drool. When we say Rampage IV, many will immediately start to daydream, and when we add Black Edition, we believe that will get even more attention. Whoever is paying attention to the motherboard scene knows that Rampage IV motherboard is the ultimate product of the ASUS company. Of course, since it was presented nearly two years ago, it was time for users to be reminded who has the best and best-equipped LGA2011 motherboard. We’re glad that ASUS didn’t decide to just implement black components, but completely refreshed it’s strongest LGA2011 RoG platform.

Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4: Friends forever

The best motherboard doesn’t necessarily have to be the one that has the most of everything, simply because some of us don’t use a great number of capabilities that a device has. True, we would all prefer to have a board from ASUS WS series because we it looks powerful, but six PCI-Express x16 is usable by, perhaps, a single-digit percent of users. On the other hand, a board such as Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4 is an excellent balance between capabilities, price and design. That doesn't mean that it's a cheap or a weak board. Since we're talking about a model based on Intel's X70 chipset with LGA 2011 base it implies that it's a product intended for demanding users.

Sony Xperia Z Ultra: Smartphone with the biggest screen

Only two years ago, when Samsung started a new trend of producing smartphones with big screens with the Note model, everybody thought that nobody wanted to use a phone that big and that concept doesn’t have any sense. Today, smartphones with big screens and popular phablets (phone + tablet) are a part of everyday life for millions of people all around the world. Direct consequence of the fore-mentioned is the model Sony Xperia Z Ultra with a huge 6-inch screen. Whether this screen size, for something we call a phone, will become a usual size in the next years, we can’t say for sure, but to have for testing a smartphone that makes us look a bit strange during phone calls is an unexpected déjà vu.

ASUS RAIDR Express SSD: Beating records at all costs

Sometimes, it’s not possible to make the fastest device of a certain kind in the most elegant ways. Simply, it requires breaching the borders of the comfortable, so the result of the desire to reach the top place can sometimes be a cumbersome device. An excellent example of cases such as this one are the video cards with two GPUs that often have troubles with the noise they make, overheating, and sometimes, overloading the power supply and first and foremost, a (too) high price, and all of that because of the 30% increase in performances when compared to the cheaper, more elegant and more useful solutions. Still, even products such as those have their own buyers and purpose, because otherwise they wouldn’t be made in the first place. ASUS RAIDR is a product that finds itself on the thin line to cross into that irrational extreme.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti: Maxwell take 1

During GPU history, it was often the case when new architecture debuted it didn’t do so with the most powerful graphic processor or with the most expensive model. NVIDIA decided to do the same again, even though when we say that Maxwell will inherit Kepler, that doesn’t mean that we will today present a video card that costs a couple hundred of euros. Moreover, Maxwell is making their breakthrough on the market in a rather “normal” category. Video cards that don’t cost more than 150 euros won’t excite anyone too much, but that doesn’t mean it’s not possible to make serious progress.

LG G Pad 8.3: Smartphone’s best friend

LG has been presenting excellent mobile devices in the past year, starting with Optimus G, over Nexus 4 and up to the newest LG G2 model that stunned us. The time has come to see what can LG do with tablets, and their firstborn is 8.3-inch LG Pad G. We all know how important is the first impression and depending on how well it was made and what’s it offering compared to the competition, LG’s reputation as a tablet manufacturer will rise or fall. LG played it safe and chose Android as operating system, so we were further interest in how it will function in the unusual screen size and how easy will the tablet be to carry or use.

AMD Radeon RG2133 Gaming Series: Quad without a coxswain

Fast memory modules were some time ago important only to overclockers and enthusiasts who needed additional space for increasing their configuration’s performance. Fast RAM was rare in those days, and its price was drastically higher compared to the standard modules. For example: a classic DDR module working at 533 MHz cost three times more than the standard DDR400. Today, the situation is quite different. First of all, the prices don’t fluctuate so much in most cases. Aside from that, it’s not necessary to have the newest water-cooled Core i7 in order to get the maximum out of overclock modules. Actually, in those cases the differences virtually don’t exist for the largest part, because they’re only present in tests.

Cooler Master Storm Mech: Your own designer

Mechanical keyboards are starting to become really popular and the trendsetter is the Cooler Master. Even though most manufacturers are starting to use this technology, such models are still relatively exotic. Actually, that’s how it would have been if not for Cooler Master, whose portfolio includes a large number of versions and models, so it’s possible to find the desired model without much trouble. The newest product in this line is called Mech, and it’s a top-quality product when it comes to CM Storm. That means we expect only the best, but at the same time it means that it will put a sizable hole in our pockets.

ASUS Mars 760: Third contact with MARS

We could hardly wait for the moment when new MARS or ARES models would arrive at our doors. In case you weren’t aware, these two series are published interchangeably, but if memory serves us right, it didn’t happen that both were published in one year. The idea is for ASUS to show the technology that’s at their disposal with these models, because they were made completely by ASUS. This year, it’s NVIDIA’s turn, with a card named MARS 760.
