Posted by: STAFF
”The graphics might not be the best you can find, but where they really matter is where you will find they look best. At maximum settings the game is completely playable for me, but I believe I will be turning settings down to improve performance. Over time I do think optimizations through patches and new drivers will help. Gameplay, to put it simply, is where I want it to be. The challenge is there and has been progressing nicely, for me at least. With a variety of events and rewards just to the Career Mode there is plenty to do, but the game offers even more with community challenges and the Your Stage feature for generating even more tracks to try.”

Posted by: STAFF
Much of the current excitement in the consumer storage space involves blazing-fast NVMe solid state drives, but there are still hundreds of millions (if not billions) of systems packing SATA hard drives that would benefit greatly from an SSD upgrade. As such, many manufacturers continue to introduce SATA-based offerings like the recently-launched Intel SSD 545s series, which feature newer technologies in an effort to drive costs down and capacities up.

Intel Xeon Scalable Processor Debut: Dual Xeon Platinum 8176 With 112 Threads
     Mon, Jul 24 2017 | 5:47P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel announced its Xeon Scalable processor family based Skylake-SP a few weeks back, but today marks the official launch of the platform. These new processors feature a new microarchitecture versus previous-generation Xeons and Intel has revamped the naming convention and arrangement of the product stack as well. Whereas previous-generation Xeon processors carried version, class, and model number designations – for example, Xeon E5-2697 v4 – the Xeon Scalable processor family is now designated by Platinum, Gold, Silver, and Bronze categories, with a single model number. The new naming convention will take some getting used to if you’re already familiar with Intel’s previous-generation Xeons, but it’s relatively straightforward in the grand scheme of things. We will explain shortly...

Kingston 32GB DataTraveler microDuo 3.0
     Mon, Jul 24 2017 | 5:35P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Given the extremely small size and the ability to connect via USB 3.0 and microUSB, the Kingston 32GB DataTraveler microDuo 3.0 is definitely a handy little flash drive to carry around. If your mobile device supports USB OTG (On-The-Go) you will be able to sync or backup your files with ease, and perhaps you could use it to free up some valuable storage space on your phone or tablet.

Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum Wireless Gaming Mouse Review
     Mon, Jul 24 2017 | 5:26P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Some people drive a modest vehicle because it’s no more than a tool to reliably get them from point A to B. Having a modest price tag doesn’t hurt and surely part of the purchasing decision. Other people want to reliably get from point A to point B as well, but they want to do it with a little more comfort and style and will shell out some extra cash to do so. And then there are those that want that same reliable trip but want comfort, style and performance – price be damned. The latter individuals are the ones that are going to want to pay attention here. No, we aren’t going to talk about cars but rather a gaming mouse, at least in intent but can be so much more. It’s the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum wireless gaming mouse to be exact. It lures you in with its fancy looks and impressive specs then gut punches you with its price tag. At $150 MSRP, it’s one of the most expensive mice on the market though with its successor just announced (yeah, we’re a little late to the party), you can now find it online for a Benjamin – but is it worth it? That’s what you’re about to find out.
