EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 SuperSC Review with Benchmarks

This week NVIDIA brings heat with the GTX 960 graphics card family. The unit we're having a peek at today is an EVGA GeForce GTX 960 SuperSC, working with clock speeds of 1279MHz Base and 1342MHz Boost, a brand new set of cooling features with ACX 2.0+ Cooling, and the ability to output video to 5 displays at once. This isn't a top tier card, it's meant to attack the middle - extraordinary processing power for a rather inexpensive price. That's the key to hitting the graphics card market from all angles.

Last year, NVIDIA opened CES with its pre-show keynote and the Tegra K1; for CES 2015, it’s the turn of the Tegra X1.

Qualcomm Snapdragon 805: Hands-on and benchmarked

Qualcomm is readying the Snapdragon 805, and with new processors - and the superlatives to go along with them - proliferating, it’s trying to address the question of whether the new chip is the “Next Big Thing” or not. I caught up with Qualcomm to find out what makes the Snapdragon 805 special, to run some early benchmarks ahead of the first commercial devices arriving later in the year, and to see if its advances in 4K, CPU/GPU performance, camera tech, and more add up to a chip worth having.
