New NVIDIA 347.52 WHQL driver Download

We have another NVIDIA driver, the 347.52 version with WHQL certificate, which comes to give support to some of the new titles and to improve the performance of many others:

The new driver comes to optimize and give support to the SLI a “Evolve”, also to give support and improve the performance of the GTX 980, 970 and 960 with different titles and resolutions, as we can see. The percentages shown on the table below are a comparison with the previous 347.25 WHQL version. Some security patches are included and a PhysX software update as well.

BenQ XL2420G Gaming Monitor Review

Although NVIDIA’s G-SYNC technology has been among us for over a year, it hasn’t been until the last few months that we’ve started to see monitors specially designed to make the most of a reasonable price, always taking into account the fact that we’re talking about high quality peripherals aimed at a public range where price is not the most important variable. We’ve tested the new BenQ XL2420G and this are our impressions.

In spite of its clear “gaming” orientation, the new BenQ monitor displays a discrete and almost conservative esthetic, except for subtle parts in red. The panel fits very easily in one of the best supports we’ve seen in years, with height adjustment (130 mm.) and inclination (from -5°to +20°) and that incorporates solutions as practical as a cable conductor and a transport hook.

Along the bezel we find capacitive tactile buttons to control menus, the power button and the integrated IR emitter (necessary for 3D mode). Unlike other models, BenQ has situated it on the lower bezel, which may be a problem if we use bulky peripherals as a wheel or a joystick with throttle. The firm also includes the S-Switch, a control system where we can select between three predefined modes and navigate through the configuration menus more comfortably.

Gigabyte P37X, the thinnest gaming laptop with a GTX 980M

Several companies have taken advantage of the efficiency of NVIDIA’s new Maxwell graphics to launch very thin gaming laptops with graphic power previously reserved to thick and heavy equipment.

Gigabyte P37X

However, Gigabyte has taken a step further and has integrated a whole GeForce GTX980M in a laptop of only 22. 5 mm in its thickest part and with a weight that stays at 2, 8 KG. This way, and if my memory isn’t failing, we’d be before the thinnest laptop making use of this graphic card of NVIDIA’s highest range.
