KFA² GeForce GTX 1070 EXOC Sniper
     Sun, Feb 26 2017 | 12:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Neu bei der EXOC Sniper ist die Backplate, die etwas dicker ist als die normalen Aluminium-Platten, da sie über eine zusätzliche durchsichtige LED Leiste verfügt. Somit muss man oben bei der Karte zusätzlich 5-7 mm dazu rechnen, was bei den meisten Boards kein Problem sein sollte. Bisher waren Grafikkarten immer nur mit LED Lüftern ausgestattet, etwas Sinnfrei, wenn sie nach unten zeigen. Die Zeiten sind nun vorbei, nun gibt es eine schicke Beleuchtung die man auch sehen kann. Und nicht nur das, die Farben lassen sich auch noch per Software steuern und zusätzliche Effekte erzeugen. Damit hebt man sich von der breiten Masse ab, denn so ein optisches Gimmick bieten nur wenige Hersteller an.

Anonabox FAWKES Tor Router
     Sun, Feb 26 2017 | 9:00A | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”As we saw with the Pro, the TOR performance is meager, but this is the design of TOR. TOR hops around the world to "wrap" your data in, hence the name The Onion Router. Because your hops and exit nodes are spread all over the world, your traffic is bouncing around all over the place and this will cause latency. TOR is not designed to stream media over or torrent your favorite files; in fact TOR recommends not using it for torrent downloading, which can be illegal anyway and we do not condone that. What TOR is good for is sending your private emails, downloading confidential documents, etc., that you do not want public eyes viewing. Take, for instance, if you want to check your bank account and send some emails at Starbucks while sipping a latte, then the Anonabox FAWKES with TOR will allow you to do so without having to worry about me in the corner with a packet sniffer and decrypting your logins.”

Further, the board is among the launch vehicles for GIGABYTE's new AORUS brand, a gamer-friendly brand looking to differentiate itself from the competition. GIGABYTE balances the board design well with a unique aesthetic and a very diverse offering of storage solutions. Its performance falls in-line with other boards of the same class and its overclocking potential leaves nothing to sneer at. Further, GIGABYTE chose wisely in the selection of its integrated GigE network controllers with both offering top level performance at minimal system impact."

LG V20 @ LanOC Reviews
     Sat, Feb 25 2017 | 4:42P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There are only a few phones that I get really excited about every year. The LG V20 is one of those phones, the ultra-premium feature list with things like a built-in headphone DAC are always interesting. This is also one of only a few phones on the premium phone market that has a removable battery and expandable memory. Those features and the aluminum body all help it stand out in a crowded market, but today I'm going to see what else the V20 has going for it and find out just where it stands for performance.
