Origin PC EON15-S Review: A Svelte, Sensibly-Priced Gaming Laptop
     Mon, Aug 21 2017 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was not that long ago when the idea of buying a gaming laptop meant spending a heavy premium versus a desktop setup. That was always a tough pill to swallow, because for the most part, there was no way to upgrade critical components like a GPU, down the road a bit. What you got is what you would have to live with for the life of your laptop. That latter restriction remains today but now, more than ever with more powerful mobile platforms, gaming laptops can offer a reasonably good return on investment. That is certainly true of the EON15-S from Origin PC, the 15.6-inch frag-ready notebook we're looking at today.

Three entry level ‘audiophile’ headphones reviewed
     Mon, Aug 21 2017 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here at KitGuru we review a lot of gaming headsets. Over the last year alone, I’ve seen offerings from Corsair, HyperX, Razer, Fnatic Gear and ASUS ROG to name just five manufacturers. Most of the headsets we review cost between £50-100, making them good options if you don’t want to spend a fortune. However, what if you’re ready to take the next step and upgrade your headset to something better – a dedicated pair of audio-grade headphones, for instance?

Intel Core i7 7820X Linux Benchmarks
     Sat, Aug 19 2017 | 9:02A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While the June launch of Intel's X-Series processors took the attention with the top-end Core i9 7900X Skylake-X and Core i7 7740X Kabylake-X processors, coming in several hundred dollars less than the i9-7900X is the i7-7820X, which still packs a very hard punch. We have now received a Core i7 7820X for Linux testing at Phoronix and are beginning with a round of benchmarks on Ubuntu."

Fractal Design Meshify C ATX Case Review
     Sat, Aug 19 2017 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When Fractal Design offered up yet another, as-of-yet unannounced product to add to their lineup my curiosity was piqued. What else could they possibly have in store? All I had was a product name: the Meshify C. I could hazard a few guesses as to the nature of this new case: ATX, based on the Define C no doubt, with a dressing of mesh – perhaps an Arc Midi successor? Follow along as Benchmark Reviews investigates this new direction from Fractal Design.

WD My Passport SSD 1TB @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Aug 19 2017 | 9:00A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to data storage there are all different form factors and options. If you have a huge computer and don’t need to transport the data you can just toss a hard drive in and you are good to go. I take advantage of network attached storage for most of the data around the house but I also used a few flash drives for on the go. But when you need more space the thumb drive options get expensive, huge, and they aren’t exactly fast as well. So you are left with a portable hard drive but again speeds are terrible. Well recently SSDs have been making it into the portable market and the WD My Passport SSS really caught my eye to be paired with my Ultrabook for when I’m on the go and between test benches around the office. With a small form factor and a Type-C connection, it looks to be what need but first today I want to put it to the test and see how it performs.

GeIL EVO X DDR4-3200 16GB Memory Kit Review
     Fri, Aug 18 2017 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As we’ve said before 2017 seems to be the year of RGB, almost all parts of our PC’s now come with RGB options. One of the first company’s to come out with RGB memory was GeIL. Their EVO X DDR4 kits really pushed the envelope and many other memory makers followed suit. While this kits are a little older they are still a great choice when adding RGB lighting to the inside of your case and their performance is quite good as well. Today we will be checking out the GEX416GB3200C16DC kit which is a 16GB (2x8GB) kit operating at 3200 MHz with timings of 16-16-16-36 at 1.35V. Let’s take a look at this kit and see if it adds the extra bling to our system that we were looking for!"
