Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 1080 Graphics Card Review
     Tue, Jul 26 2016 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 980Ti rapidly became a firm favourite among hardware enthusiasts due to the exceptional Windforce 3X cooling solution and impressive factory overclocks. Even though it was eventually superseded by the Gigabyte XTREME GAMING GTX 980Ti as the company’s flagship offering, the astounding build quality bodes well for future G1 branded products. NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture was always heralded as the next major leap in graphics performance and greatly benefits from the new 16nm FinFET manufacturing process. Thankfully, the GTX 1080 provides a significant boost in framerates compared to the previous generation and consumer demand remains unbelievably high despite hefty retail prices.

     Mon, Jul 25 2016 | 4:02P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Seasonic has never been big on marketing-speak. Outside of its impressive specifications, and a list of features, this is all it has to say. "The creation of the PRIME Series is a renewed testimony of Seasonic's determination to push the limits of power supply design in every aspect." Well, let's see if that is true, or the shortest sales pitch ever.

Acer Predator XB1 XB271HU 144 Hz G-Sync Monitor Review
     Sun, Jul 24 2016 | 4:01P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There sure aren’t a whole lot of options on the market for WQHD (2560 x 1440) 144 Hz monitors, and even less options when you’re looking for an IPS display panel. Heck, you don’t have a lot of options for WQHD 144 Hz TN panels, either, especially when looking for 27-inches or larger. Today we’re going to take a look at the Acer Predator XB1 (XB271HU), which is a 27-inch WQHD panel capable of a 144 Hz refresh rate, or 165 Hz when overclocked, and 4ms gray-to-gray pixel response times, featuring NVIDIA G-SYNC technology. Some other features include 100% sRGB color gamut, a brightness of 350 nits, and built-in 2 watt stereo speaker. Read on to find out how it does!
