Upgrade Windows 7 or 8.1 to Windows 10 from the Windows Update

If you would like to upgrade your Windows 7 or Windows 8 to the newest Windows 10 but the previous installation option seemed too complicated, this is for you. This is the easiest and safest way to install Windows. Right from the Windows O.S, using the Windows Update option.

1: Before installing Windows 10

Normally, if you wanted to try any of the Windows versions prior to their official release, you needed to download the ISO file from Microsoft’s website and then create an installation disk in order to install the new Windows onto your PC.

This is now a thing of the past for Microsoft.

Inno3D GeForce GTX 970 Compact: A GTX 970 Mini-ITX

For those of you looking for a powerful but small graphics card for compact PC’s, we will introduce you to the Inno3D GeForce GTX 970 compact, which integrates within its 172mm length a silicon based GM204 Maxwell GPU, holding a total of 1664 CUIDA Cores running at a frequency of 1015/1178 MHz and accompanied of “4 GB” GDDR5 RAM memory @ 7000 MHz with a 224 bits memory interface (3584 MB) + 32 bits (512 MB).

Inno3D GeForce GTX 970 Compact:

Despite its compact size, the GTX 970 Compact comes with an advanced cooling system (HerculeZ X1), which consists of a aluminum radiator crossed by a pair of cooper heat pipes along with a fan in order to lower the temperatures that along with two 6+6 pin PCI-Express (TDP 145W) will allow high doses of overclocking. Its price is around 369 dollars give or take.

AMD Radeon R9 390X vs GeForce TITAN X vs GeForce GTX 980 Ti

We have new leaks around the AMD Radeon R9 390X, which faced against nothing less than the most powerful Nvidia graphics card, the GeForce GTX TITAN X and the still unannounced Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 Ti, which uses the same GPU that the TITAN X, the GM200, but in a cropped version.

On the other hand, we can see the one that may be the Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 Ti at the bottom of the graphics.

To draw a clear conclusion of performance, all graphics were tested under 19 different games reaching 4K resolutions, graphs that were accompanied by an Intel Core i7-4790K @ 4.20 GHz with 16 GB of DDR3 memory to avoid any bottlenecks that influence the charts negatively.

NVIDIA GTX 960M, GTX 950M and GT940M Specifications Comparison

MSI has updated its notebook for gamers line without making too much noise, but thanks to that we have seen the specifications of the GTX 960M, GTX 950M and GT 940M, based on NVIDIA Maxwell.

Thanks to this we were able to confirm the specifications that these “new” graphics cards for laptops have. We make emphasis on “new” because in reality we are facing relaunched solutions.

As shown in the attached table, the GTX 960M and GTX 950M would be renamed versions of the GTX 860M and GTX 850M, but with a slight increase in their operating frequencies. (Read More: 960M vs 860M)

Intel Xeon D, Broadwell arrives to the servers

The Intel Broadwell architecture keeps extending within the catalogue of Intel products. After the Core M and Core U, the company keeps integrating this architecture in low consumption chips and now it’s the turn of its application to the servers.

The new Xeon D are fabricated with 14 nanometers and, at least initially, they’ll arrive under two models of 4 and 8 cores in integrated SoC format, that means, they’ll be directly welded onto server plates, so those of you who were waiting for the first Broadwell processor with a CPU socket will have to wait.

NVIDIA TITAN X Performance is Leaked

In the results that have been leaked into the videocardz website we can see how the GTX TITAN X reaches 7899 points on the 3DMARK Firestrike EXTREME test. Considering this measure as the 100%, the TITAN Z with double GPU stays at only 108%, and other graphic cards as the GTX 980 or the R9 290X remain at 75 and 64%, respectively.

In the conventional FireStrike test the TITAN X gets 17470 points, on this occasion the Titan Z stays at 102% of performance and the GTX 980 at 74%, although if we do overclock as in the GTX 980 G1 GAMING of Gigabyte, the distance is reduced until remaining at 80% of the TITAN X.

NVIDIA TITAN X

In the old 3DMark 11 EXTREME we can see how the GTX TITAN X escalates in the SLI setting of two, three, and four cards. Although to interpret the data we have to look at the fact that the graphic cards are considerably overclocked, there’s no doubt that they escalate more than well. But yes, the escalation that is produced in synthetic test as this one is usually superior to the improvement that is later achieved in real games, especially after the third and fourth graphic card.

NVIDIA TITAN X

In the website they also dare to unveil the specifications and even the price of the card, but these data should be taken with a grain of salt since there’s no way of confirming it. The only sure thing is that we have the 28-nanometer GM200 chip. The rest of the specifications they show are 3072 CUDA Cores, 192 TMUs, 96 ROPs, a speed of 1002 Mhz of base and 1750 MHZ (7000 MHZ) for its 12 GB of GDDR5 memory with a data bus of 384 bits. It’ll have a bandwidth of 336 GB/s and a TDP of 230 W. All this for a supposed 999 Dollars, a price that wouldn’t be so unreasonable and a price that the GTX TITAN and TITAN Black already had at on time.

MSI GS70 STEALTH PRO-099 review (GTX970M, Intel Core i7-4710HQ, 16gb ram)

You’d never believe the power that lies within the MSI GS70 STEALTH PRO-099, a fine 17 inches laptop. And not it offers that, it has much more. This is our analysis.

MSI GS70 STEALTH PRO-099

With a fairly conservative and not very “aggressive” design, this is the ultimate thoroughbred from manufacturer MSI.

Of course it is difficult to imagine before turning on the MSI GS70 PRO-099, all what lies beneath the apparently simple chassis, but we can tell you that there are many surprises (mostly positive) that we have discovered as we were exploring its features.

Logitech has its new G303 Daedalus Apex gaming mouse ready

The heart of the new Logitech mouse for gamers is formed by a Delta Zero sensor with optical technology with an astonishing 12,000 DPI resolution; figures more characteristic of a laser sensor than of this type.

That sensibility can be regulated within the mouse, bringing it down to 200 DPI, so that the user can always adjust it to their needs. In fact, it is the same sensor as the G502, but placed in a symmetrical mouse with a body similar to the one of G302, resulting in a hybrid named Logitech G303 Daedalus Apex Performance Edition.

Logitech G303

Despite its rather serious and sober design, the G303 includes a backlit logo in the back and side area. The illumination is RGB, so that we can configure it to output any color we choose, as long as it’s enough with the 16 million colors available for choosing.

G DATA bets for safety devices for Android at MWC

MWC 2015. G DATA, the German company specializing in security solutions, was present at the Mobile World Congress 2015 held in Barcelona with a clear message directed to an interconnected world in which mobile devices and its applications invade everything.

In this sense, though they had announced that it would be one of its “highlights” during MWC 2015, they made official that their new app that encrypts SMS messages between devices on Android phones will be available in Google Play on April.
