AOC Agon AG322QCX Review
     Thu, Dec 14 2017 | 4:00P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AOC, we need to talk about your product names. The monitor I have to review today is called the Agon AG322QCX, which no one sane will remember after reading it. And that's a shame, because there's quite a memorable spec sheet to discuss.

Kingston HyperX Cloud Alpha Pro Gaming Headset
     Thu, Dec 14 2017 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
” Well for one, I can say this has become my daily go-to headset for not only gaming and such on my PC, but also for use with my mobile devices, such as my phone and iPad Pro. These little things have a lot of sound for the price, which by the way, is only $99 at the time of this review – a steal. The in-line controls are simple and intuitive, the sound is amazing with rich bass and crystal clear mids and highs, and the comfort – well, the comfort is my favorite part. The use of the aluminum frame was a great move by Kingston and the padding is so soft that I do not get fatigue in my ears or neck like I have with other headsets.

OCC's Recommend Holiday Build Guide
     Wed, Dec 13 2017 | 7:40P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”This build guide is focused solely gaming and getting the best "bang for the buck" so to speak. A byproduct of this are things like RGB lighting and color theme builds go out the window due to budget restraints. On the low end, every dollar saved from an unnecessary, flashy setup can be put to better use. However, nothing is set in stone and you are free to adjust and spend a few dollars more to purchase things more to your liking. But whatever changes you make, just be sure it is compatible. If you unsure, feel free to hit up the OCC forums and ask for help. On that note, I am not loyal to one brand, but my lists do consist of parts I would buy myself instead of putting together a list of the cheapest possible combinations. I also avoided rebates due to needing to pay more up front. Since I opted out of the rebates, you will find better hardware for a similar price if you are willing to fill out the paperwork. I also listed alternate choices for most of the parts, so if something is out of stock or if you have a distaste for a certain brand, the option is available to choose.”

NVIDIA Announces Monstrous TITAN V With Volta V100 GPU
     Wed, Dec 13 2017 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIA is ready to unleash a completely new GPU aimed at researchers and scientists, the TITAN V. The card was fittingly announced at the Conference and Workshop on Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS). The new TITAN V is based on the NVIDIA Volta architecture, and with that shift comes a gigantic leap in compute performance with certain workloads. According to the company, the TITAN V’s redesigned Tensor Cores, which feature independent parallel integer and floating-point data paths, help to fuel a whopping 9x uplift in horsepower compared to the TITAN Xp, coming in at a dizzying 110 TFLOPs for Deep Learning workloads. All of that power is packed into the 21.1 billion-transistor GV100 GPU that is manufactured using a TSMC 12nm FFN high-performance process, customized for NVIDIA. Other features of the $2,999 TITAN V include 12GB of HBM2, a new combined L1 data cache, and a shared memory unit. Power efficiency has reportedly been improved as well; NVIDIA is claiming big performance gains, within the same power envelope as Pascal...
