Goat Simulator Cover Hi Res

First of all, a big thanks to Anton Westbergh (@AntonWestbergh) for handing us the Review Copy of Goat Simulator. Goat Simulator is an Indie game developed by Coffee Stain Studios to instant, critical acclaim. The game’s humble origins were from a Game Jam and it was only after the Internet’s enthusiastic demand that it turned into an IP. When we heard of this game, a few weeks back, we knew we had to get our hands on it.

The Goat Simulator Review: You won’t believe the stuff you can do in this Baaah-rilliant Indie Master Piece

1. Preliminary

Normally, what happens in the case of a super-hyped game, is that the Gaming Studio shamelessly paints it as the Next Big Thing and the critics shoot it down (mostly). However just as everything about Goat Simulator is one-of-a-kind, it has the exact opposite approach, because the Dev’s don’t take it seriously but we think it’s nothing short of epic. Cofee Stain Studios, posts a witty comment on the official description:

“Goat Simulator is a small, broken and stupid game. I t was made in a couple of weeks so don’t expect a game in the size and scope of GTA with goats. In fact, you’re better off not expecting anything at all actually. To be completely honest, it would be best if you’d spend your $10 on a hula hoop, a pile of bricks, or maybe a real-life goat.”

Introduction

It has been over a month since Intel launched their latest Haswell platform for consumers. The Haswell chips or specifically, the K-Series processors brought some revolutionary new features for overclocking that were before limited to the HEDT X79 platform. Intel’s Haswell CPUs come with an Integrated voltage regulator “FVIR” along with enhanced BCLK overclocking. With the launch of Haswell platform from Intel, motherboard manufacturers popped up some really impressive designs and features for the new platform that were not available on the main stream platform.

Elite Computer Systems or ECS as is formerly known has been serving the hardware market since 30 years with a rich portfolio of PC products and have recently entered the expanding mobility scene. With the launch of Intel’s Haswell platform, ECS launched their new L337 gaming brand which focuses on delivering high-performance Z87 chipset based motherboards for online gamers, enthusiasts and overclockers.

L337 was created to dedicate efforts in developing products focused on gamers.We believe in the spirit of competition and the fruits of our labor will be passed to our customers as we strive to tailor our products for them.

Gaming is the beginning of your life, not the end and ECS is here to help you start with the best tools for success. Today’s gamers are tomorrow’s leaders so we strive to create products that give you that competitive gaming edge so that your successes in gaming will lead to success in life. With high quality components and top notch performance ECS will help you get Battle Ready for the gaming world as well as the real world. L337 in life… L337 for life. ECS L337 Webpage

Today, we will be taking a look at the ECS GANK Drone Z87H3-A3X motherboard which is an entry level board in the L337 Gaming lineup which is interesting for the feature set it has to offer. But before we talk about the board itself, let’s take a look at the Z87 chipset and socket which support the latest Haswell processors and to our recen knowledge, also supports the Haswell Refresh processors which arrive in second quarter of 2014.

Games

Galaxy Run ($0.99) by Spiel Studios comes as a new side-running platformer with the purpose to win our competitive side taking you out of this world – literally! I’m telling you this because the game takes place in space, where will be playing as Rez who is trying to get home after his spaceship crashed against an asteroid. But to get home we need to go through a series of over 360 levels, it is your job to get him home.

Galaxy-Run-iOS-Screen-1

Galaxy Run gives you the job to take Rez home, but is not going to be easy.

This game includes a various elements you can use but there is only one control, which only involves tapping anywhere on the screen of your phone or tablet. Despite this limited controls, Galaxy Run is still quite engaging and extremely challenging.

At the very beginning of any level you need to start running, which you only need to do is a tap of the screen. After this, you may start tapping the screen to make Rez jump. Also, depending on the different tools that are used, tapping may serve another purpose making things a little more easy. As an example if you attain a double-jump token, you could tap twice on the screen to make Rez jump two times going higher. Despite the only control involving the tap of a finger, this can help you to be saved a lot of times.

Introduction

We have tested the entire AMD R200 series lineup during the past month which includes their mainstream and enthusiast models. We have yet to receive the flagship Hawaii graphic cards but before testing those out, we are going to review the entry level R7 series cards which include the Radeon R7 250 and Radeon R7 240.

While the AMD Radeon R9 series is aiming at a price range beyond the $150 mark, the Radeon R7 series is built for gamers within the sub-$150 price range. There’s a huge market for these cards considering their value hence PC gamers and even HTPC builders will look into these new GPU solutions.

The AMD Radeon R7 260X is the flagship part of the R7 200 series lineup while the sub-$100 Radeon R7 250 and Radeon R7 240 featuring the Oland GPU are the most basic and entry level cards AMD has to offer to gamers. So today we will be testing out not one but both Oland based graphic card and see what kind of gaming experience do they actually offer to end users.

HIS Radeon R9 280X IceQ x2 GPU

Introduction

It has been almost two years since AMD launched their GCN architecture based Radaeon HD 7000 ‘Southern Island’ series. The Southern Islands family was the first to support the TSMC 28nm GCN ‘Graphics Core Next’ architecture and today we will be looking at the successor to the Southern Islands codenamed Volcanic Islands.

The Volcanic Islands family is branded as the Radeon R200 series and takes performance and value to the next level. Technically speaking, the Radeon R200 series cards which include the Radeon R9 280X, Radeon R9 270X, Radeon R7 260X, Radeon R7 250 and Radeon R7 240 are GCN rebrands with the addition of new features but rather than giving away the same cards at the same price ranges, AMD added a few new features which we will detail in this article and slashed the prices so much that the Tahiti chip that once was $549 can now be bought for $299 US.

Today, we will be looking at the Radeon R9 280X which is the last remaining GCN 1.0 rebrand featuring the Tahiti Core architecture. HIS gave us the non-reference Radeon R9 280X for the test which features their high-end IceQ X2 cooler and a beefy custom designed PCB to deliver more power over the reference models which would come handy to overclockers and enthusiasts. Let’s check out the card shall we?

We have tested out the reference and non-reference variants of the AMD Radeon R7 260X graphic cards only yesterday. Today we will be testing the latest Radeon R9 series graphic card known as the Radeon R9 270X. The card is aimed towards the mainstream audience at a price of only $199. The specific model we are going to test is the HIS Radeon R9 270X IceQ X² with Turbo Boost and 2 GB memory. Let’s see if $199 graphic cards have become capable enough for gaming on the current AAA titles.

We just tested out our first reference Radeon R7 series card and found it a fairly good solution for 1080P gaming. For our current test, we will be testing out the HIS Radeon R6 260X IceQ X² model which uses the same chip but features a custom designed PCB and HIS’s highly acclaimed IceQ X² cooling design which would allow us to test the card in overclocked conditions which wasn’t possible on the reference model due to the noise and heat out-put.

Over the recent time, AMD has put a lot of focus on their Gaming Evolved brand with the launch of Never Settle bundle promotion, partnering up with the largest publisher in the gaming industry – Electronic Arts and securing dominance with all three next generation consoles including the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and WiiU. With the GCN architecture fused across every platform, the PC gamers would reap the reward by getting optimized titles and would be able to run them at GPUs under the $299 price range which is the sweet spot for every gamer.

Today we will be looking at the Radeon R7 260X Graphic card which is the entry level product of the Radeon R7 lineup. You may wonder where are the reviews for the rest of the Radeon R7 and Radeon R9 cards? We received our samples a bit late but we have already set them up in our test rig so expect reviews for the other cards very shortly.

Intel TM105A Tablet Review

The Intel TM105A is an old tablet at the time of testing but it has only been introduced in our country as the first tablet from Intel Pakistan. The tablet is aimed towards budget users and costs around the $150 range which is a decent price against the competition. The Intel TM105A is actually manufactured by ECS (Elite Computer Systems and powered with Intel hardware. Let’s take a look at the details!

As an Intel Tablet, it should be no doubt that the hardware it features is also made by Intel itself. Under the hood, the TM105A packs a Atom Z2460 (Medfield) processor which is a Dual core CPU clocked at 1.6 GHz and coupled with the PowerVR SGX 540 series graphics chip.

The 10.1 Inch tablet sports a LED display panel which boasts a resolution of 1280×800 enabled with 5 point multi-touch capability. The 10.1 inch panel is more than enough for any tablet and provides enough room for easy and accessible maneuverability across the screen. Before we go into the details, You can see the specifications listed below:

Introduction

Earlier this year, i got to review HP’s Envy 4 notebook which featured a third generation Ivy Bridge notebook. Today, i will be testing out HP’s latest HP Envy 15 notebook which is powered by Intel’s fourth generation of Haswell processor.

We reviewed Haswell back when it launched and the main improvements we saw with the desktop Core series was its power efficient design and the new HD graphics core which delivers much improved performance  over the last generation integrated graphics processors. HP’s new Envy 15 lineup is also featuring their new Touch Smart technology which offers a fully integrated touch experience that goes well with the Windows 8 Metro design on Windows tablets but how does it performs on a notebook PC? Well that along with dozen other set of features and performance of the HP Envy 15 we are going to find out in this review.

AMD Richland Box
Hardware

Introduction

In 2011, AMD released their first APU architecture codenamed “Llano” which was eventually followed by its successor “Trinity” in 2012. The Trinity APUs were met with a positive response by consumers due to the value they offered.

Additionally and over the Llano APU, Trinity offered the latest 32nm Piledriver cores which brought x86 architecture and an enhanced Radeon graphics core. The Piledriver cores on the Trinity APU offered while not the best but adequate performance to power applications but the graphics power shined against Intel’s HD counterparts. The only downside remained the high power consumption that needed to be sorted out in a revision later on. The new revision launched three days after Intel released their Haswell processors which brought a new 22nm architecture enhancements but the major improvement on Intel’s front was not the compute performance but rather the graphics performance and overall power efficiency.

While Trinity’s graphic side was strong, the new revision had to tackle Intel on both the GPU front and power efficiency. Its time to see how the third generation APU revision of Trinity codenamed “Richland” fairs in our review.

640x3602013 is a decade that is filled with all kinds of smartphones, tablets or anything that’s wearable would have some kind of an operating system running inside it for our daily needs. As computers go even more mobile, efficient and efficient in terms of energy, people tend to do things on the go.

We rely on our smart OS powered devices 24/7 for everything we need or do and at sometime comes a moment when we’re running low on juice that we hunt down the nearest plug socket to get back those energy levels up. Arctic seems to ease up on this ongoing hunt with their Power Bank 4000-S. Read on for more.
