NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Review: Smooth 1080P Gaming For Less
     Mon, Mar 18 2019 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are only a couple of weeks removed from the launch of the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and NVIDIA is already at it again. This time around, we have yet another affordably-priced, Turing-based GPU to show you all, the GeForce GTX 1660 – sans Ti. As its naming suggest, the new GeForce GTX 1660 is very similar to its more-powerful counterpart; they’re both based on the same GPU, but a few cores and other components have been disabled in the GTX 1660. A handful of other changes have been made with the GeForce GTX 1660 as well, which push the card down a rung in terms of performance, but also bring down the price...

Cooler Master MK850 Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Mon, Mar 18 2019 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Forget, for a moment, what the Cooler Master MK850 looks like. Forget about its RGB lighting, its brushed metal top, its many keys and buttons, and the software that comes with it, because none of those things make it a keyboard of consequence. The only thing we really care about is whether or not the MK850 can deliver on the tantalizing promise of analog keyboard input for gaming.

ASRock B365 Phantom Gaming 4 (Intel B365) Motherboard Review
     Mon, Mar 18 2019 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So Intel went back and grabbed their previous generation chipset and adapted it for the 300 series, and called it B365. The B365 chipset does not have the integrated USB 3.1 (10Gb/s) or integrated WIFI MAC, but instead has eight more PCI-E 3.0 lanes, two more USB 3.0, and supports one more PCI-E M.2 slot compared to the B360 chipset.

GeForce GTX 1660 Threesome - MSI Ventus and Gaming X and Palit StormX
     Sun, Mar 17 2019 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA today launches their mainstream GeForce GTX 1660 that sits at roughly 219 USD. Not to confuse with the Ti model, this iteration of the graphics cards has 1408 shader processors and is tied towards 6GB of GDDR5 memory. The GTX series is different from the RTX series in respect that they do not have Tensor or Raytracing cores. make no mistake though, this is Turing architecture based on the 12nm FF TU116 GPU. The end result is a product that takes on the Radeon RX 580 and 590, and does that quite well. We have prepared three initial reviews for today, two from MSI and one Mini ITX version from Palit.

Posted by: STAFF
The most affordable Turing graphics card is also NVIDIA's most important thus far, as it replaces the GTX 1060 6 GB which sold in mountains. Zotac's cost-effective implementation of the new GeForce GTX 1660 gives you more: a twin-fan cooler, at NVIDIA's baseline price.

     Sun, Mar 17 2019 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Priced at $249, ASRock's Radeon RX 590 Phantom Gaming is the most affordable RX 590 at this time. This dual-fan, dual-slot card includes the highly popular idle-fan-off feature that many GTX 1660 Ti cards are lacking, but faces strong competition from NVIDIA's latest card otherwise.
