Hardware Roundup: Friday Edition

bp9801 - February 7, 2014 10:37AM in Affiliate News

The first week of February is nearly wrapped up, but we have plenty to get to before it does end. We have a look at the XFX R9 290 Double Dissipation Edition, which features a redesigned cooler that should hopefully keep the temperatures more in line than the stock cooler. Also on the AMD side is an interview with the chief architect of Mantle to really understand what the company is trying to do with the low-level API. If you're looking for a new home for your PC, perhaps the Aerocool GT-S White Full Tower is the one for you. For the gamers in need of a new mouse, the Shogun Bros. Ballista MK-1 gets reviewed to see if it's everything it claims to be. We also have a couple of gadgets, like a smartwatch and a cable that tells you how much power is being pumped through to your USB devices, and a podcast to wrap it all up.
