Intel Core X Series i9-7900X and i7-7740X @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jun 24 2017 | 4:00P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
To say that the X299 and Core X launch has been bumpy would be an understatement. During Computex, details were announced and the boards were shown off and Youtubers like Linus took to the streets literally and figuratively to voice their opinions. I myself have kept quiet, avoiding a lot of the drama, but mostly because I don’t like to voice an opinion on something from specification sheets and rumors. So I held out waiting to get everything into the office and take a closer look. Well, Intel sent over the new i9-7900X and the i7-7740X and today I’m going to talk a little more about everything and then dive into the performance. When that is all said and done, then we can finally start to look at the overall picture.

Ethereum Hashrate Performance Drop Might Be Coming
     Sat, Jun 24 2017 | 9:03A | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are mining Ethereum you might have noticed that your hashrate recently dropped if you are using AMD Radeon RX 400/500 series cards. Seeing your mining hashrate drop is nothing new for Ether miners and it is usually due to the growing DAG file size. When the move to DAG epoch #130 happened it seems that the AMD Radeon 400/500 series cards took a performance hit while the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1000 series cards and older AMD Radeon 200/300 series cards did not. Let's take a look at some NVIDIA and AMD video cards and see what will happen months down the road at future DAG sizes.

The Best $100 Entry-Level GPU
     Sat, Jun 24 2017 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Enter the Radeon RX 560, AMD's last ditch effort to reclaim the entry-level market segment for this generation. Compared to its predecessor, the RX 560 packs 14% more cores that are slightly faster clocked for good measure. But the GTX 1050 enjoyed of a comfortable 18% lead against AMD's last-gen GPU, so it'll be interesting to see what this means for the RX 560.

SteelSeries Arctis 7 @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Jun 23 2017 | 2:16P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Late last year I took a look at the Arctis 5 from SteelSeries and I was extremely impressed with their new audio series. It won our Top Honors Award and the Editors Choice and I liked them so much that my wife has been using them for the past 6 months. The only reason I didn’t snatch them up myself was that I wanted something wireless so I kept bugging SteelSeries and when some of the Arctis 7’s came in I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them. With a similar design, I have high hopes for their audio performance and I’m really hoping this is going to be the wireless headset that I finally stick with. SO today let’s check them out and see how they perform.
