ASUS GTX 980 vs MSI GTX 980 vs Gigabyte GTX 980 vs zotac gtx 980 Comparison, Which one is better?

The latest released flagship graphics card of GeForce GTX 980 by NVIDIA, with Maxwell architecture, has the biggest feature that it completely breaks the record of the performance per watt of the flagship graphics card. With the emergence of these two cards, the structure and competition mode of the traditional flagship graphics card market will change, the era of players focusing only on the performance rather than the experience of the game may have come to an end, and the era that the graphics card again becomes a tool of enjoying games is coming.

The performance per watt means a lot for graphics cards, higher performance per watt represents not only a lower threshold of the use and maximized unit performance, but also means that players do not need to care about such negative factors as noise, high temperature, high power consumption, game lag and even game settings and so on, which are complicated but seen as certain symbols by part of the traditional DIY players, so that they can pay more energy and attention to the process of the game.

Best Monitor for your Macbook pro and Mac mini 2015

Regardless of the screen size of our computer, either laptop or desktop, many users opt for an additional external display. If you are looking for a monitor, we show you three options that you might like.

How to choose the external display

Choosing the right screen depends on the needs of each user. Obviously, as you use it, you will know if it’s a good or bad idea for it to have certain features or not.

  • If it’s not greater than 22", the minimum resolution that you should look for is Full HD. With a higher diagonal, it’s better to opt for higher resolutions or you will see too much pixels on the screen.
  • If you want to edit photos, it’s important that the screen must be matte and represent 100% or the maximum color profile with which you work with (sRGB, Adobe RGB).
  • As for connections, this is relative but a minimal DVI is necessary. Then if you can get some extra USB or HDMI ports it’s also interesting because you can use it with other devices, such as game consoles.

Three monitors to consider:

In the market there are many options, surely each of you will have your own preferences. My three options would be these ones below. They cover three prices ranges and each one has their own advantages when buying them.

Benq GW2760HS

Benq GW2760HS is the cheapest 27 inch option. With its price, of around 200 dollars, it has a resolution of 1920 × 1080 pixels, thanks to its AMVA panel, it’s Typical Contrast Ratio up to 3000: 1 and has a brightness of 300 nits. 4ms Response Time, It has DVI connection, DisplayPort, an analogic port and several USB ports.

Dell Ultrasharp U2713HM

Dell Ultrasharp U2713HM: a 27’’ monitor with a resolution of 2560 × 1440 pixels and can represent 99% of the sRGB color profile. When it comes to connection options, it is very well equipped: it has HDMI, DVI (HDCP), DisplayPort and 4 USB ports. Maybe you won’t like tha price very much, as it’s around 500 dollars.

Apple Thunderbolt Display

• Lastly, and certainly the most criticized option, the Apple Thunderbolt Display. Apple’s Monitor has negative points, such as the screen glare but also advantages like the Thunderbolt connection. Its price of 950 dollars makes it prohibitive, and that’s why many people in the world of publishing (video or photo) opt for models of other brands. Likewise, it is also good to know that when seeing the current iMac models, Apple’s monitor should receive an update that would imply a change in design, which would be thinner, and the new filter and anti-reflex panel to improve brightness and color.

As I said above, three options. At least you get an idea with these. And if you’re thinking that 27" is just too large, I will tell you that it’s not like that at all. You get used quickly to it and it is very comfortable to work with multiple applications opened at once. Do you have some other interesting proposal?

SSD endurance test: 2 petabytes without shaking.

As SSD endurance test has confirmed the reliability upgrade that the last generation solid state units have experienced, with two of the models tested surviving after standing a massive writing test of over 2 petabytes, an enormous quantity of data that a real person would take dozens of years to complete.

http://pcgamerhome.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/SSD-TEST.jpg

The multiple advantages of having an SSD (consumption, noise, heat emission or performance) derived from the absence of mobile parts are evident, but a few years back there were doubts of the practical endurance of the units in solid state as the standard use for massive information storage. Based on NAND flash memories, the successful writings erode the individual memory cells, both in capacity and performance.
