After careful consideration and much regret I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and reviews that were left behind during the site migration. 

Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com

The new 3DMark from Futuremark is set to be released on February 4th which also marks the start of the MSI 3DMark Challenge hosted by HWBot. 

This competition runs for 30 days and is comprised of a single stage running the Fire Strike benchmark.  Fire Strike is the DX11 benchmark designed to test graphics performance meaning that you'll need a monster of a video card to compete (and maybe some LN2)

To enter you'll need to be a HWBot member and own a MSI Z77 motherboard and DX11 compatible graphics card.

For a duration of four weeks, from February 4 to March 3, 2013 Anyone using a MSI motherboards and graphics cards can compete in the most challenging DirectX 11 scene in 3DMark– Fire Strike. The competition will be divided into two parts: the top two challengers using a MSI Z77 MPOWER for the competition with the highest scores will each win great items such as a MSI R7970 Lightning Boost Edition graphics card and a Z77A-GD80 motherboard; the Z77A-GD55 Lucky Draw activity is opened to all challengers using MSI Z77 motherboards.

To enter the Lucky Draw activity, all you have to do is upload your scores before February 10! We believe this will be an extremely fierce competition and expect to see record-breaking performance!

Good luck to anyone who enters.
