Lithium battery makers demand price rise due to shortages
     Wed, Sep 28 2016 | 5:40P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As demand for the traditional 18650 cylinder battery has been growing strong recently because of increasing notebook sales, upstream battery module makers have started asking for a double-digit percentage quote raise. Since most lithium battery makers have no plans to expand their notebook battery production capacity, shortages are unlikely to be resolved in the short term.

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 AMP! Graphics Card @ Custom PC Review
     Wed, Sep 28 2016 | 5:39P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"When NVIDIA first announced the Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 graphics cards back in May, it was very clear that they had a pair of winners on their hands. Fast forward four months to today, and it seems that the company is still commanding the high-end GPU market with no competition expected..."

SanDisk ExSanDisk Extremetreme 510 Portable SSD Review: Rugged, External Storage
     Wed, Sep 28 2016 | 5:07P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
SanDisk recently launched a new line of portable storage products, with photographers, videographers, and creative professionals in mind. The particular drive we'll be showing you here, the SanDisk Extreme 510, has a 480GB capacity and attaches to a PC using USB, though smaller capacities are also available. Not only does it have the performance of an SSD, with up to 430MB/s reads and 400MB/s writes over a USB 3.0 connection, but it is also water resistant, dust resistant (IP55 rating), and rugged enough to handle the rigors of mobile computing...

EVGA Z170 Classified K Motherboard Review
     Wed, Sep 28 2016 | 5:06P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a change in Intel Chipsets we get new motherboards based on that chipset. When the Intel Z170 chipset came out, EVGA provided us one of their three ATX Z170 based motherboards, the Z170 FTW. We found that the motherboard provided the basic features that we were looking for in a basic Z170 motherboard; good overclocking features, USB 3.0, and M.2 NVMe support. However, we found that it lacked some of the more advanced features that advanced enthusiasts were looking for; dual M.2 NVMe, and USB 3.1. For these features, you need to look at EVGA’s more advanced Z170 ATX motherboard, the Z170 Classified K. Read on to see if it has what it needs to be your next motherboard!

Zalman ZM-K900M Gaming Keyboard Review
     Wed, Sep 28 2016 | 5:05P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Zalman ZM-K900M is a gaming mechanical keyboard featuring Kailh blue switches with RGB illumination and a slew of lighting effects. What is the main reason to spend money on a “gaming” mechanical keyboard vs a regular keyboard? With membrane based gaming keyboards, your purchase depends mainly on features that you can only utilize during gameplay. But with a gaming mechanical keyboard, your priorities in performance to value are more broad. You’re looking for a long life keyswitch that offers tactile feel and a comfortable typing experience as well. This is what we should all look for in a gaming mechanical keyboard, does the Zalman ZM-K900M live up to their own expectations? We’ll find out in this article for Benchmark Reviews.

Wired2Fire Diablo Elite GTX 1080 Gaming PC Review
     Wed, Sep 28 2016 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Wired2Fire might not be the most recognisable name among consumers but the reception from buyers is overwhelmingly positive and speaks for itself. According to the data on TrustPilot, the majority of reviews have the maximum five-star rating and thoroughly recommend the company’s service. As a result, the end-user is able to select any system from their vast repertoire with a great deal of confidence. This is particularly the case when you consider each pre-configured build comes with a generous 3-year warranty. Wired2Fire works alongside a number of hardware partners to target competitive price points which make each system a compelling proposition.

The 850 EVO
     Wed, Sep 28 2016 | 9:02A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It's interesting to see the EVO come in at lower capacities than the PRO. Historically, Samsung has shipped their EVO line in higher capacities than the PRO line. The 850 EVO currently ships in capacities up to 4TB, while the 850 PRO remains limited to 2TB. I'd assume this is a marketing ploy to try and ship more PRO models, as TLC capacity lends itself to higher capacities for a given number of flash dies present. I would certainly like to see Samsung push the 960 EVO capacities upwards of 4TB, and with competing M.2 NVMe products shipping at a lower cost, those prices use some tweaking as well.

Apacer's AS330 Panther SSD is inexpensive, offers good performance and has capacity to burn. But can this drive roar or will a lack of brand recognition cause it to purr out to obscurity?

Gigabyte RX 480 G1 Gaming 8G Graphic Card Review
     Wed, Sep 28 2016 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte RX 480 G1 Gaming uses a WindForce 2x cooling system with three copper heatpipes directly touching the core. The extra power draw is via its eight-pin PCIe power port. While the reference edition does not have the DVI-D (strange) by default, there is a provision for its AIB manufacturers. Yes, DVI is old and HDMI/Display Port is convenient. But many users still have DVI-I only 1080p panels, including those running gaming cafes. The graphic card is reasonably sized for its class. It does have a minor factory overclock. Gigabyte VGA made a good impression with its GeForce lineup. So let’s see how their Radeon lineups are.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges.
