The Benefits of a High Spec Tablet

Over recent years, technology has come a very long way and amongst the high tech devices and gadgets now available to us are tablets. These smart devices have helped to revolutionise our lives and they are used for all sorts of purposes from business and entertainment through to research, browsing, shopping and more. The size of the average tablet makes it perfect for using while on the go, at work or while on holiday, which is why these devices have become so popular over the past few years.

If you are investing in a tablet, it is well worth looking for a high spec one that offers a range of features. This is because tablets are so versatile that they can be used for all sorts of purposes and the better the spec of your tablet the more enhances your user experience will be. If you use your tablet for entertainment such as streaming movies or playing online casino games at places such as Betway, it is particularly useful to opt for a higher spec one, as you can enjoy better graphics, better speed, and a far more pleasurable entertainment experience.

Choosing the right tablet

The specs of a tablet will help to determine its suitability based on what you plan to use it for. If, for instance, you only want the tablet for browsing and basic use, you can opt for a lower priced one rather than going for very high specs. However, these days many people want to use their tablets to enjoy entertainment. This could be anything from watching movies via streaming sites through to playing virtual slot and table games at a casino site such as Betway, where you can benefit from a great variety of exciting games. This type of entertainment can be made all the more enjoyable if you have a high quality tablet designed to enhance your experience.

Tablets come with a range of screen sizes these days, and opting for a larger screen means that you can make the most of entertainment such as movies and gaming when you are on your tablet. You should also look for a tablet that offers high quality graphics, as this is an important part of the entertainment experience on these devices. Remember, the higher resolution tablets will give far sharper and clearer images, so make sure you go for a high res tablet if you plan to use your device for entertainment purposes.

Tablets these days often come with advanced processors, which means that you can look forward to faster speeds when you are using the device. This is great news if you are using your tablet for entertainment, as the last thing you want when watching movies or playing games is for the screen to continuously freeze or for the site to take forever to load. Again, going for a high spec tablet from a reputable manufacturer will enable you to benefit from faster speeds as well as better graphics.

Official PS4 Specs Released

Sony has won over the hearts and minds of millions of gamers this week and while Microsoft put on a good show in the E3 warm up, there was little they could do to stop the award winning performance that was the PlayStation 4. Sony has gained further confidence today by revealing the final hardware specifications of the PlayStation 4 retail units, showing us just how close we are to the actual release window.

Many of these details have been known for some time, many were leaked and many were lightly mentioned in the first PlayStation 4 press event back in February,but sometimes it’s just nice to see them in black and white and get everything nailed down on a The Jaguar architecture still makes up the 8 core AMD APU and will bring with it some impressive power saving features and with the addition of Radeon GPU cores it can also turn some impressive figures with 1.84 TFLOPS of compute workload. The GPU its self features 18 compute units running at 800MHz, 6 more than the Xbox One.

One of the best features is a 500GB hard drive that is user replaceable or upgradable, meaning no proprietary hard drive units and that is something that will no doubt keep the PlayStation faithful happy. Add to this USB 3.0, Blu-Ray 6x (three times faster than PlayStation 3), B/G/N Wi-Fi and more.

Nvidia Geforce GTX 780 Confirmed

The GTX 7xx range is almost upon us and Nvidia can’t hold onto all their information forever! Now we can confirm that not only are the cards almost upon us, but that we now know exactly what specifications they’re packing.

Based around the GK110 hardware, the GTX 780 is set to features a whopping 2304 CUDA cores and a 900MHz Boost Clock that should see it churn out some impressive benchmarks upon release.

The GK110 is based around the 28nm process, but that doesn’t mean much in terms of power saving when the card pulls 250W TDP via set of 6+8pin PCI-Express power cables, all this power will be used to drive the 863MHz base clock, with GPU Boost 2.0 taking that up to a nice round 900Mhz. 3GB of GDDR5 memory will add some extra performance punch and is clocked at 6000MHz with a 384-bit memory interface.

Much like the GTX 770 the GTX 780 is set to use the GTX Titan cooler and it’s likely we’ll be seeing a lot more of that cooler design on future Nvidia cards given that it packs the capabilities of cooling incredibly powerful graphics cards but also keeping noise to a surprising low level of around 45-45 dBA, much less than the GTX 680 stock cooler.

If these specs are to be taking into consideration then this card could be around 25-50% more powerful than the HD 7970 GHz Edition meaning the GPU war between Nvidia and AMD is far from over.

The GTX 780 is set to launch on the 23rd of this month, but you best start saving as you might have guess it’s not going to be cheap with the GTX 770 expected to be around £400 we could be looking at £500+ for the GTX 780.
