Samsung 970 Pro 512 GB

Posted by: STAFF
Samsung's 970 Pro flagship SSD offers incredible performance, especially when it comes to writes, where it tops the charts with up to 2.4 GB/s, thanks to the use of MLC flash. Reads are even faster at 3.5 GB/s. If only the SSD was more affordable: $200 for 512 GB is not exactly cheap.

PC Specialist Nucleus AMD Threadripper 2990WX Workstation
     Sat, Oct 20 2018 | 9:01A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX blew our minds when we first reviewed it a couple of months ago. It’s an absolutely stunning basis for a high-end workstation, with nothing from Intel to compete with its 32-core grunt just yet. This time around, we are taking a look at the same processor in a workstation from PC Specialist. Called the Nucleus, it’s so named because of the latter’s creative role in generating everything we do with a PC (apparently).

     Fri, Oct 19 2018 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Especially with Qualcomm's Centriq efforts going quiet in recent months, one of the most interesting ARM server efforts at the moment is Ampere Computing -- the company founded by former Intel president Renee James and with several other ex-Intel employees on staff. They started off with the acquired assets from what was AppliedMicro and their X-Gene ARMv8 IP and for the past year have been improving it into their recently announced eMAG processors."

Cooler Master CM310 Mouse and MP860 RGB MousePad
     Fri, Oct 19 2018 | 9:00A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the continued demand for RGB components and peripherals there doesn’t seem to be any end to what manufacturers will ‘RGB’. With both keyboards and mice sporting synchronisable lighting the next logical accessory to receive this treatment would be your mousepad. Cooler Masters new MP860 incorporates fully customizable lighting and synchronisation available with other Cooler Master portal supported products. Priced at £79.99 it also features both cloth and aluminium reversible surfaces, but does the addition of RGB lighting justify this premium price?

     Wed, Oct 17 2018 | 12:03P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AURA2 RGB lighting which was built ahead of many competitors, the SHIELD DC(Double Capacity) DDR4. Co-developed with ASUS ROG team, it amazingly supports small form factor motherboards of Intel Z390 including ROG MAXIMUS XI APEX, MAXIMUS XI GENE, and ROG STRIX Z390-I Gaming. With the whole new architecture, it achieves not only double capacity of 32GB for single slot, but also high frequency of 3600MHz with impressive stability. Such a widely praised high-end memory module in the PC world comes along once in a lifetime.

www.pcstats.com

In 2018 ZADAK takes the biggest leap since the original DDR4. SHIELD DC DDR4 comes with double capacity of 32GB for one single stick. The IC dies for SHIELD DC DDR4 were meticulously screened that one IC was chosen out of 10 thousand ICs. ZADAK adopts the whole new architecture with special circuit design on PCB offering double capacity as well as incredible stability under high speed operation. The unprecedented design and functionality of the SHIELD DC DDR4 breaks the limits of inadequate memory on the two-slot platforms. For content creators, 3A gamers, and those gamers who prefer a compact PC for space-saving, ZADAK SHIELD DC DDR4 gives you the double capacity, double speed, and double enjoyment.

The SHIELD DC DDR4 fully supports the latest ASUS ROG Z390 motherboards. It starts at a clock speed of 3000MHz, going up to 3200MHz at a voltage of 1.35V with CL14-14-14-34 and 3600MHz. It comes with single channel packaging as well as kit of dual-channel one with the highest capacity of 64GB (32GBX2). The RGB lighting of SHIELD DC DDR4 is synchronized with ROG AURA2 so users can regulate the preferable colors and manage the LED flashing patterns.

Instead of light diffuser, ZADAK SHIELD DC DDR4 employs the specially-designed chamfer inside the aluminum top bar presenting perfect RGB lighting effect. The metal machining craftsmanship and thicker aluminum material of 1.5mm give multi-layer design on the heat spreader.

Small form factor with only two-slot motherboard had a problem with inadequate memory. The ZADAK team is comfortably over those limits. SHIELD DC DDR4 is a groundbreaking product. For the enthusiast users and gamers who want to get the maximum capacity and high speed of memory module in their system while using motherboards with two slots only now will have the option of opting for ZADAK SHIELD DC DDR4. It will be on the market in late October with the MSRP USD$799/899/999 for 3000/3200/3600MHz.
