Tesoro Ascalon Spectrum Optical Gaming Mouse Review
     Tue, May 03 2016 | 9:03A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Tesoro is one of the coolest gaming brands around, and while you may not think of them first when shopping for a new peripheral, they’ve proven to us here at eTeknix time and time again that they can create competitive, unique and affordable products that would make great additions to any desktop gaming setup. With that in mind, I’m very happy to see their new Ascalon Spectrum Gaming Mouse in the eTeknix office today. It may not be the most high-end mouse ever, but if previous Tesoro reviews are anything to go by, it will no doubt have a few cool tricks up its sleeves.

Dark Souls III Benchmarked: GPU & CPU Performance
     Tue, May 03 2016 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dark Souls III is arguably the biggest game to launch this month. Using the engine from developer FromSoftware's 'Bloodborne', Dark Souls III looks quite impressive but you can certainly tell this is a console port. The tweakable options are decent though the game gives no real explanation of what you are enabling. You do get enhanced graphics, better performance and higher resolutions.

Intel 750 Series 400GB NVMe Solid State
     Mon, May 02 2016 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Intel introduced their 750 Series solid state drives last year. Back then and even now not many people know what NVMe is. NVMe stands for Non-Volatile Memory Express and it is a protocol that has been designed from the ground up to capitalize on the low latency and internal parallelism of flash-based storage devices, mirroring the parallelism of contemporary CPUs, platforms and applications. NVMe reduces latency and allows for more transactions per second, which will increase application performance. NVMe is also uses less CPU power than AHCI, this means you have more CPU cycles for other activities. Intel’s 750 Series were the first solid state drives available to consumers to make use of this technology. Today we will be looking at the lowest capacity drive is the series, which is 400GB. It boasts sequential read and write speeds of up to 2200 MB/s and 900 MB/s respectively. That is quite impressive, let’s take a look!"

SteelSeries Siberia 350 Gaming Headset Review
     Mon, May 02 2016 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Siberia 350 headset is very easy to set up and work with thanks to the Engine 3 utility, while the volume controller is placed on the wire. If we look at both Siberia 650 (Elite Prism) and 350, we can see that the latter is a “lite” edition of the more expensive model, which does feature a less thick padding system, no analog interface and also less options we can configure throughout the software. However, the most important settings like the adjustable headband, DTS headphone, retractable unidirectional microphone, RGB illumination are available so we can enjoy the product with the same quality but at a much lower price."

AMD’s own proclamation
     Mon, May 02 2016 | 2:40P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Anyone that pays attention to the graphics card market can see why AMD would make the positional shift with the Radeon Pro Duo. The Fiji architecture is on the way out, with Polaris due out in June by AMD’s own proclamation. At $1500, the Radeon Pro Duo will be a stark contrast to the prices of the Polaris GPUs this summer, and it is well above any NVIDIA-priced part in the GeForce line. And, though CrossFire has made drastic improvements over the last several years thanks to new testing techniques, the ecosystem for multi-GPU is going through a major shift with both DX12 and VR bearing down on it.
