DDR4 Memory Scaling Performance with Ryzen 7 2700X
     Mon, May 21 2018 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When AMD announced the new Ryzen 2000 Series processors along with the new X470 platform on April 19th, 2018 many might have missed that G.Skill released new Trident Z RGB and Sniper X DDR4 memory kits custom tailored for this platform. We test a kit with the same timings at 2400, 2666, 3000, 3200, 3466, 3600 and 3733MHz to see of the performance scales on a Ryzen 7 2700X CPU.

Creative Metallix Plus Portable Water-resistant Bluetooth Speaker Review
     Mon, May 21 2018 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After fully-charging the speaker (a full charge takes about five-six hours), we did pair it to our Huawei P10 Plus smartphone and started listening to tracks on TuneIn Radio but also SoundCloud; right away, we were not only impressed by the overall volume of such a small speaker, but also its ability to handle bass! Creative has quite a bit of experience in this area and the custom-tuned drivers along with the passive radiator seem to do wonders. Judging by the Metallix Plus performance, it is ideal to bring it with yourself at small, private parties but can also handle the outside environment since it was built with IPX5 splash proof capabilities."

mini-ITX offering from BitFenix
     Sun, May 20 2018 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The BitFenix Portal is a unique case that stands out among the small form-factor competition with its unusual appearance. The look isn't for everyone (I happen to like it quite a bit personally), and the higher than average temperatures in our tests demonstrate that even with front and back fans the airflow just isn't high enough to make this a very efficient enclosure, though temps were controlled enough to prevent throttling. The Portal provides a surprisingly easy build process to compliment its striking appearance, and the overall quality is very good as well. If thermals aren't your highest priority the Portal is a very stylish mini-ITX build option."

Posted by: STAFF
One of ASRock's H370-based motherboards has hit our test lab, ready for general compute use for Intel's latest mainstream Coffee Lake CPUs. The H370 chipset does not support overclocking, so we take a foray into stock settings and usage with the ASRock H370M-ITX/ac, which is just $100.

MSI Vigor GK80 Gaming Keyboard
     Fri, May 18 2018 | 3:46P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Well, I can definitely say the MSI Vigor GK80 Red Gaming Keyboard is among some of the best I have ever used. The keyboard is a solid beast that responds with grace and precision. There was not one time using the keyboard I felt fatigued or that I got frustrated using it. There are a lot of keyboards that come close, but I really feel that MSI hit a home run with the GK80 keyboard. The responsiveness is spot on when I am playing games and when using it for long hours for work I never felt like I had to take a break due to a strain on my hands and wrists for typing."

Asus ROG Crosshair VII Hero (Wi-Fi) Review
     Fri, May 18 2018 | 3:45P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We received our sample of the Asus ROG Crosshair VII Hero Wi-Fi as part of the press kit that AMD delivered for the launch of Ryzen 7 2700X and Ryzen 5 2600X CPUs. As we expected, the Crosshair VII Hero is a high end motherboard that is loaded with overclocking features and while it looks and feels really solid, our initial testing suggested that performance was nothing special. This was pretty much the opposite of what we expected from the ROG brand, however it seemed unlikely Asus had made a fundamental error with the design so we decided to hold off with our review until Asus had the chance to update the BIOS as that can make a massive difference to the way a motherboard behaves. In the intervening period Asus has issued a steady stream of updates including a BIOS that supports a new version of AGESA, which is the sort of thing we expect, and then Asus sent over a Performance BIOS that looked very interesting.
