BlackVue DR900S-2CH Dashcam
     Fri, Jun 22 2018 | 9:00A | Digital Cameras | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A while back we were introduced to Pittasoft when we reviewed the BlackVue DR650S-2CH dashcam. Overall we were quite happy with the performance, but there were a few improvements we would have liked to see. When I recently heard the DR900S-2CH was coming out, I jumped on the chance to look at the new and improved device. The biggest improvement on paper is now the primary camera is capable of 4K resolution and the rear is 1080P.

The SX8200 has a generous 128 GB SLC write cache, which ensures even large write batches get completed at the drive's full speed. Pricing is awesome too, with only $170 for the tested 480 GB version.

ZOOZ Z-Wave Plus Indoor Siren ZSE01
     Thu, Jun 21 2018 | 4:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ZOOZ Z-Wave Plus Indoor Siren ZSE01 is a great choice for those looking to add a siren to the their smart home ecosystem. It is fairly easy to connect, has a variety of mounting options, and functions just as you would expect. The handful of things that really drew me to it are the fact that it is AC powered with battery backup, features the benefits of Z-Wave Plus, and when plugged in to AC power it will function as a Z-Wave repeater.

Barrow LTYK3-04 Review
     Thu, Jun 21 2018 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we look at a water cooler from the Asian company Barrow, which is less popular in Europe. Can it keep up with the local top dogs of well-known brand manufacturers? Are there any disadvantages and how does it overclock? Also this time there is the test including a new OCinside YouTube channel video of the whole system with the Barrow LTYK3-04, Enermax NEOChanger, Intel Core i7-7700K, ASUS ROG Maximus IX Code, ASUS ROG Poseidon GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, G.Skill Trident Z RGB DDR4-3600 and Creative Sound BlasterX AE-5 in a Lian Li Alpha 550 case.

FSP CMT520
     Thu, Jun 21 2018 | 9:00A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The FSP CMT520 should not be mistaken for an evolutionary step up from the CMT510. It does not only come with a completely different internal feel, but also a different external look. The changes result in great dual radiator support, better RGB fan compatibility with motherboards, and better storage capabilities.

Posted by: STAFF
Havit's HV-KB390L low-profile mechanical keyboard comes from a company you may not have heard of, but its low-profile chassis and short-stroke switches make this a board worth paying attention to for the space-conscious enthusiast. We put the HV-KB390L to the test to see whether it offers typing bliss to low-profile keyboard fans.

AOC G2590PX 24.5in 144Hz Gaming Monitor Review
     Wed, Jun 20 2018 | 4:02P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most things in computing get smaller over time, so you get more of them in the same space for less money. But while screen fabrication technology obeys this law too, the popular sizes of monitors have been increasing. After 19in came 24in, and now 27in is becoming ubiquitous. Nevertheless, for certain room sizes, the 24in class is still a sweet spot, particularly if you don’t have £500 to spend on your TFT. AOC’s G2590PX comes in at less than half that, yet is still packed with features for the avid gamer.

A Look At How The AMD EPYC Linux Performance
     Wed, Jun 20 2018 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This month marks one year since AMD returned to delivering high-performance server CPUs with the debut of their EPYC 7000 series processor line-up. It's been a triumphant period for AMD with the successes over the past year of their EPYC family. Over the past year, the Linux support has continued to improve with several EPYC/Zen CPU optimizations, ongoing Zen compiler tuning, CPU temperature monitoring support within the k10temp driver, and general improvements to the Linux kernel that have also helped out EPYC. In this article is a comparison of a "2017" Linux software stack as was common last year to the performance now possible if using the bleeding-edge software components. These Linux benchmarks were done with the EPYC 7351P, 7401P, and 7601 processors."
