    Battlefield 4 Beta Performance Preview @ [H]

    Awesome article. Can't wait for the Win 7 vs 8 comparison. In terms of performance for the full version of the game coming out in just under 3 weeks, it'll be interesting to see where it goes. On one side, the beta is running from an older build of the final game and so obviously its not as...

    Windows 8 vs Windows 7 Performance

    This is what I've been trying to explain to people (in person, not on the web). Under the hood, Windows 8 is fantastic. Its faster, smoother and especially for SSDs, a god send. Take away Metro, and you have an excellent OS.

    How Long Did It Take To Install Windows 8?

    Seriously? Seriously? Installing/updating a new version of a mobile OS is included in his list of OS' he has installed? Wow, credibility gone...

    ‘Medal of Honor: Warfighter’ Pre-Order Deals

    Yeah, the investors skipped the reviews and the sale numbers allowed them to fund a second one. Do you know who did look at the reviews? Danger Close, they're developing it so they looked at the reviews. I don't think its going to be a superb game, but it'll be solid (probably low to mid 80...

    Microsoft Surface for Windows RT for $199?

    $199 for a 10" tablet is far fetched, but $299 is more plausible and more reasonable too. Specs haven't been released, but what is known is the fact that the RT version will have a rather sub par 1366x768 (but still useable) and that might actually help it range between $299-$399. That's a...

    Max Payne 3 Performance and IQ Review @ [H]

    It seems like the small delay for the PC version has paid off. Again, the visuals are great, but you can certainly tell that the true capabilities of the game's engine are held back, especially with the levels of details. It looks great, but I think it could have looked even better if there...

    GeForce 680 & 670 vs. Radeon 7970 & 7950 Gaming Performance @ [H]

    No DVD Playback In Windows 8

    lol who cares? So many people use XBMC anyway, plus, Windows media player is garbage, use VLC or WMC.

    Microsoft Says No New Xbox 'Anytime Soon'

    LOLOLOLOL everyone in here is so pissed off at the 360's success. Give me a break, the 360 is the embodiment of genius marketing on MS' part. Being able to sell over 15 million units per year of hardware that is 7 years old is something that even Apple would have a wet dream about. Don't hate...

    Government Says If It Ends in .Com, It’s .Seizable

    This is kinda crappy. I don't care at all for the politics, most of my favourite sports streaming sites have been taken down, but were almost immediately replaced with a .me or .eu link :) hopefully more of my sports streaming sites pick up. Too bad its hard to get good soccer channels here in...

    Report: iPad 3 to be Announced in First Week of March

    2048x1536? I'm pretty sure that's just a rumor with great exaggerated. Something more believable is a A6 quad core chip, 1GB of ram all the while managing ~10 hours of use.

    $30k iPhone Speakers

    Steve, while I love [H] and I come here everyday to read news, I don't appreciate the use of the word "retard". Its not a very inclusive word to be used and I would appreciate it if such language isn't used for front page news reports.

    Acer, Asus and Dell 'To Exit Android Tablets' ?

    There's an inherent problem with all these manufacturers, they're using a variation of Android. Don't get me wrong, Android is an excellent OS for the phone, but unlike iOS for the iPad it literally feels "blown up to fit a bigger screen" on tablets. Either Google needs to put more work into it...

    Canada Starting to Switch Over to Plastic Currency

    $5 coins will get introduced once inflation hits a point where a $5 coin is the equivalent of our loonie/toonie today. Or... if a toonie won't cover a medium double double from Timmi's. We're not there yet :)

    Microsoft Gets $444M A Year From Android Licenses

    Wow guys ... have you never heard of out of court settlements? It's not like Microsoft sent Google, HTC, Samsung, LG and Motorola letters "stating" that they're actually infringing without asking to meet and then settle. Lawyers from all sides met, and the Android camp saw that MS had...

    Corsair Announces New Vengeance Gaming Headsets

    That's the way to go IMHO, get a good soundcard with OPAMPS on it and you're good. I can never justify the price nor sound quality coming out of USB headsets that emulate 5.1 or 7.1 surround. I've been meaning to try out the HS1A but I've heard the lows are quite lacking, even when fine tuned.

    Battlefield 3 Caspian Border Gameplay

    I was referring to my air to air K/D ratio. There's also ground kills K/D ratio which for me was around 1/4 last time I played BF2. I died way too often because of lag or my flight stick going off the edge of my desk lol. I do agree that the jets were quite difficult to take down, but around...

    Battlefield 3 Caspian Border Gameplay

    You fools, take a closer look at the video. Make it 1080p and maximize it. Forward to around 0:47, and any other cockpit scenes. Look on the top right and left of the cockpit HUD. The top right shows the altitude. At 300, that's near ground level allowing you to have visual confirmation of...

    Xbox Live Enforcement: Behind The Black Curtain

    Microsoft, amongst quite a few others, are supporters of equal rights for all individuals, especially during the hiring process. They do not discriminate potential or current employees based off on their sex, race, religion, skin colour, including stuff like tattoos, religious headwear, and etc.

    DICE Explains Differences Between BF3 PC and Console

    Those are console games you fool, even the first Dragon Age was just barely passable as a PC RPG. It's sad that you consider Oblivion & Fallout 3 to be in the PC quality realm when they're not, everything in those games is console oriented. Its kind of sad that I can count the games you've...

    DICE Explains Differences Between BF3 PC and Console

    Actually, while its a very good argument for us to care about quality, you have to remember that in order to keep delivering us games, they need to make money. Its sad how some gamers just completely seem to forget that the gaming industry is still a business, and its core, games, developers...

    DICE Explains Differences Between BF3 PC and Console

    MAG has absolutely no physics based destruction. This is where a lot of people are missing Dice's point. They chose to keep the destruction and vehicles in the game, but they had to sacrifice player numbers for it.

    E3 Rumors on Next Generation Console Hardware @ [H]

    Could we finally be seeing OpenCL in console games :O I get excited when it comes to new hardware, even if its console. I think you guys are underestimating the GPUs, if you recall, when the PS3 was released back in '06 it was sporting the equivalent of 2x 6800 Ultras in SLi (if I recall from...

    Auzentech X-Fi Forte

    Thanks for all the replies guys. I have the most recent update for my P55-UD3R, this issue existed before my update and even on my C2D setup. I've searched around quite a bit, and it seems like this is an issue a lot of people are having. The odd part about is that it varies games to games...

    Auzentech X-Fi Forte

    I'm going to purchase a new soundcard very soon because my X-Fi Fatal1ty Pro Gamer is driving me nuts ... well only one aspect of it and that's the damn crackling/static that it produces when playing games. I recently bought Dawn of War II complete from Steam and it is absolutely atrocious...

    Setting up my Home Theatre with a 360 & PS3

    I'll give that a try, but the thing is; I've been getting 5.1 with my 360 for the longest time. When hooked up, I set it to AUX and then 5.1, the sound coming out of my speakers is true 5.1 as I am able to hear "rear" only audio through my rear speakers (I.E. Someone approaching me from behind...

    Upgrade Q6600 or E8400 or other?

    Diff beteeeen i7 920 and Q9300

    I think the i7 cores are awesome, but the prices of motherboards and ram that go with them are too expensive. I'll get the i7 once Intel allows other chipsets other than the X58 to be used to run those damn chips ... their just so good but soooo expensive.

    Motherboard for either an E8400 or E8500.

    4870 1GB vs GTX260-216 game off

    You can't go wrong with either card but you have to look at it this way. The 4870 was originally intended to beat the 260 which it did, then months later nVidia brought the 216 version out. So your comparing a card that was already beaten once, but had to be redone to take victory again...

    XFX To Sell ATi Based Video Cards

    This is good news for AMD in two ways. 1.) They are actually being recognized as a good company now, XFX would have joined earlier if it weren't for ATi's lackluster cards prior to the 4800 series. I like Sapphire and do own the 4850, but if XFX does what it does with nVidia by offering...

    Sony's PS3 A Sinking Ship?

    When is SLi Worth It?

    SLi is worth it when you can buy the 2nd card for 25% cheaper than the original one you bought. If you are a true eye candy freak and have a 2408fpw and want to run 4xAA, 16xAF for any game pretty much ... then you'll want the SLi for the 280GTX as an example. But with a rig that beefy...
