ZenBook 3 UX390UA is a 12.5-inch thin-and-light
     Sun, Jul 23 2017 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ZenBook 3 UX390UA is a 12.5-inch thin-and-light which offers a 1920x1080 IPS display, choice of 7th-generation Intel Core i5 or Core i7 processors, 16GB of DDR4 memory, and a roomy 512GB PCIe SSD. It also features just a single USB Type-C port, eschewing additional I/O in the vein of recent Apple MacBooks (more on this trend later in the review). How does it stack up? I had the pleasure of using it for a few weeks and can offer my own usage impressions (along with those ever-popular benchmark numbers) to try answering that question.

Posted by: STAFF
Logitech’s professional gamer oriented products appropriately carry the ‘Pro’ moniker and today we’re going to look at a pair of devices from that lineup. Logitech sent us over both the G Pro Gaming Mouse and the G Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard to bang away on and we thought it would make sense to cover them both at the same time...

     Sat, Jul 22 2017 | 4:03P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ROCCAT Isku+ Force FX is a good keyboard, but it is difficult to justify the tradeoff of having a pressure sensitive zone instead of mechanical keyswitches.

HyperX Alloy Elite Mechanical Keyboard @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Jul 22 2017 | 4:02P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Like Corsair and a lot of other SSD and Memory brands, HyperX in the last few years especially have jumped in completely into the peripheral market. It makes sense, SSDs and Memory are commodities so the margins are small and they are able to expand their gaming brands to an area where people can get their eyes and hands directly on your products. HyperX with their Cloud headsets has really done well and recently they even got into the mechanical keyboard market. I hadn’t had the chance to check what they had going on out yet though so when I heard they were introducing a new keyboard I was all in. So today I’m going to check out the HyperX Alloy Elite, their top of the line mechanical keyboard, and see if HyperX is doing as well here as they have been with their headsets.

Skylake-SP core has some significant upgrades
     Sat, Jul 22 2017 | 12:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The amount and significance of the product and platform launches occurring today with the Intel Xeon Scalable family is staggering. Intel is launching more than 50 processors and 7 chipsets falling under the Xeon Scalable product brand, targeting data centers and enterprise customers in a wide range of markets and segments. From SMB users to “Super 7” data center clients, the new lineup of Xeon parts is likely to have an option targeting them. All of this comes at an important point in time, with AMD fielding its new EPYC family of processors and platforms, for the first time in nearly a decade becoming competitive in the space. That decade of clear dominance in the data center has been good to Intel, giving it the ability to bring in profits and high margins without the direct fear of a strong competitor. Intel did not spend those 10 years flat footed though, and instead it has been developing complimentary technologies including new Ethernet controllers, ASICs, Omni-Path, FPGAs, solid state storage tech and much more. Our story today will give you an overview of the new processors and the changes that Intel’s latest Xeon architecture offers to business customers. The Skylake-SP core has some significant upgrades over the Broadwell design before it, but in other aspects the processors and platforms will be quite similar. What changes can you expect with the new Xeon family?
