CRYORIG Releases the Taku Monitor Stand PC Case on Kickstarter
     Mon, May 29 2017 | 7:05P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com
CRYORIG, the PC Cooling and peripherals innovator is releasing their first PC case project the Taku on crowdfunding website Kickstarter. The Taku, first announced and exhibited last summer, will also be shown during Computex 2017. The TAKU has been in development for over 2 Years in house, with over 6 months of co-development with manufacturing partner Lian Li. The Taku Kickstarter campaign begins on May 29th and ends on July 28th. Besides offering backers the chance to be the first people to receive the Taku, backers are also offered multiple customization options only available on Kickstarter.
www.pcstats.com

The TAKU is a hybrid between a PC Monitor Stand and a high-end ITX form factor PC case. With the TAKU, the PC footprint is minimized to free up desk space while at the same time fitting a high-performance PC system. The benefit of this state of the art design is that the monitor, keyboard and the full PC system is arranged vertically on top of each other. Meaning the total footprint is lowered, and valuable deskspace is freed. The Taku is compatible with GPU’s up to 280 mm, ITX form factor mainboards, SFX or SFX-L power supplies, fully capable of housing a high-end Gaming PC. Taku’s storage space is also well taken care of. The Taku can also fit 1x 3.5” HDD and two 2.5” SSD/HDD.

www.pcstats.com
As a PC Monitor Stand the Taku can support monitors up to 15 kg and fit a full 104 key mechanical keyboard underneath the stand. The system tray can be fully slid out of the chassis for easy installation of PC components or upgrades. On the right side of the Taku you’ll find dual USB 3.0 ports and audio in/out ports. An USB-Type C port will be made available in later revisions. The Taku will also include two cable management holes at the front. This allows for cables to be run through the system tray and connected to the back ports of the Taku. Providing easy and clean cable management of USB charging lines for your phone or peripheral.

www.pcstats.com
With the Taku, CRYORIG combines wood and aluminum to create an organic feeling piece of Technology that would fit perfectly into any home, or work environment. CRYORIG is going to add one C7 ITX Cooler free of charge, if the Taku project exceeds 1.000 units. The Taku campaign will begin on May 29th and offer multiple colors and material options for users to mix and match. Early bird backers will be able to get the Taku at USD$ 250 (-VAT,-shipping) with standard Taku Classics going up to USD$ 299(-VAT,-shipping), the custom TAKU PE’s cost will depend on customization options. First shipments of the Taku will go out to backers beginning September 2017.

Prey Performance And Optimization Guide
     Mon, May 29 2017 | 5:19P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The AMD Radeon RX 580 has been in the wild for over a month at this point. AMD pitched the Radeon RX 580 as an ideal choice for gamers looking to upgrade from graphics hardware acquired a couple years back. Specifically, in the lead up to the launch, AMD compared the performance of the RX 580 to cards like the Radeon R9 380. So, with that in mind, we're in the lab today to test that claim using the recently launched Prey reboot from Bethesda Softworks and developer Arkane Studios, as our primary benchmark and game engine to explore. The game also just so happens to look fabulous...

Several days of meetings and presentations left us a bit overwhelmed by what ARM is bringing to market towards the end of 2017 and most likely beginning of 2018. On the surface it appears that ARM has only done a refresh of the CPU and GPU products, but once we start looking at these products in the greater scheme and how they interact with DynamIQ we see that ARM has changed the mobile computing landscape dramatically. This new computing concept allows greater performance, flexibility, and efficiency in designs. Partners will have far more control over these licensed products to create more value and differentiation as compared to years past.

Origin Chronos Small Form Factor Gaming PC Review
     Mon, May 29 2017 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Pre-Built" and "Small Form Factor PC" are terms that can strike fear in the minds of hardcore PC gamers. Pre-built systems don't necessarily put quality or performance over costs, while small form factor PCs don't always get high end GPU options or efficient cooling. Origin's Chronos breaks those stereotypes with top-of-the-line, name brand components in a tiny chassis.
