AMD Launches Radeon R9 295X2 Card

AMD doesn't want to let NVIDIA take all of the limelight with their recent Titan-Z launch so they've gone ahead and rushed out the Radeon R9 295X2 graphics card. This is basically a single-PCB card that houses a pair of Radeon 290X cards in Crossfire. The "good" news is that this combo is available for a mere $1,500 - half price of the competitions Titan-Z.

What makes the AMD Radeon R9 295X2 somewhat sui generis in the world of GPUs is the use of an Asetek closed-loop water cooling system with 120mm radiator and fan for its cooling configuration. There are integrated pumps that sit atop each GPU using micro channel cold plates. The tubes are sealed and heat is exchanged to the 120mm radiator with fan. No assembly is required and it is maintenance free like most AIO CPU coolers you are likely familiar with.

Netflix Starts to Stream in 4K

The 4K revolution is now upon us as Netflix just started to stream some select content in 4K. Of course in order to fully enjoy this, you'll need two things - a 4K TV and a fantastic broadband package. At this point only TV's that support H.265 encoding work as this codec is pretty tight and offers good quality and a decent bitrate, but in the future there will be much more content and compatible players.

HDTV Test, a hi-def review site based in the U.K., reported Sunday that Netflix 4K streaming appeared to be up and running on a new Samsung HU8500 4K test the publication was testing, noting that streams were encoded at about 15.6 Mbps.

Charge Your Phone Battery in 30 Seconds

Battery technology hasn't changed much over the past 10 years, but that could be about to change. Storedot is showing off a battery and charger that has the ability to charge your phone in about 30 seconds. This is pretty nifty and not only requires crazy amount of power to charge that fast, but it also requires a totally different battery technology that's not Lithium-ion. Take a look at the video below.

Pre-Schooler Finds (and beats) Security Vulnerability in Xbox One

Microsoft is pretty awesome. What is not awesome though is the security vulnerability and backdoor that a five-year old found in the Xbox One. It took him all of a couple of minutes to find out how to verify that his dads password was a bunch of spaces. (It wasn't - but that works) Since then, Microsoft has patched this hole and no one stole the kids Xbox.

In video shot soon after, his father, Robert Davies, is heard asking Kristoffer how he was doing it. A suddenly excited Kristoffer showed Dad that when he typed in a wrong password for his father’s account, it clicked to a password verification screen. By typing in space keys, then hitting enter, Kristoffer was able to get in through a back door.

Most Hated Company in America

It's down to two and this year the battle for the most hated company in America is between Monsanto and Comcast. It's pretty interesting that EA got off so easy when they have been hacked (during the vote even) and have sucked just as much as usual. Either way, there is still time for your voice to be heard. 

A seed company and a cable company are all that remain of the 32 bad businesses that paraded into the Worst Company In America Arenadome only a few weeks back. One is a battle-tested vet with a Golden Poo on its mantlepiece; the other a tournament newcomer who doesn’t seem put off by its competitor’s years of experience. Both of today’s Final Death Match contenders dream of a world where they are the only supplier in their respective industries, and will go to any means necessary to make that dream a reality.

Sennheiser G4ME ONE Gaming Headset Review Online

We have just posted up our review of the Sennheiser G4ME ONE Gaming Headset. This is the followup product to the amazing PC 360, and it is a nice refresh. Sennheiser has released this top-of-the-line model to make every gamer jealous and while it isn't cheap, some things are just worth the price. Take a look at our review and see what has changed and if it is worth scrapping your current headset for the G4ME ONE. All the details are in our full review.

The G4ME ONE is a basic - although high quality - headset from a German-based company that wants to turn heads and make people take notice - not only because of the great sound, but the updated G4ME ONE headset also brings some amazing curb-appeal to the mix as well. That being said for $249, it will have to deliver a solid experience if they want to end up on the gamers short list.
