 [LATEST]  X 1080 Ti Overclocking
     Tue, Aug 22 2017 | 9:03A | Overclocking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is important, because even when you are trying to apply a higher overclock, it may downclock for any number of reasons, from thermal limits, lack of voltage, or power draw. As stated above, NVIDIA has locked the GTX 1080 Ti voltage to 1.093v. It does not matter what brand you have, you cannot exceed this without hard modifications to the card. That means your maximum overclock cannot surpass 2.2GHz because of how Boost 3.0 works once again with thermal, power, and voltage limitations. Most cards will not exceed 2012MHz for a 1080 Ti, as that's the average number I've come across browsing different forums. Remember, this is a very big GPU die with 12 billion transistors in a small area. It is hard to expect the same overclock as a 1070 or even 1080.”

 [LATEST]  Asus ROG Zephyrus
     Tue, Aug 22 2017 | 9:02A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus ROG Zephyrus is the flagship model for Nvidia's Max-Q initiative. It packs a fully-fledged GTX 1080 with 8GB of GDDR5, a Core i7-7700HQ and 16GB of RAM, inside a chassis that's 17.8mm thick and 2.3 kg heavy. This makes the Zephyrus the slimmest GTX 1080 laptop on the market, and by a significant margin, too.

Etymotic ER4 XR & SR
     Mon, Aug 21 2017 | 5:38P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Etymotic's ER4 in-ears set the benchmark when they were first launched over 25 years ago. Recently, Etymotic decided to bring out two new versions of their ER4 design - namely, the XR (Extended Response) and SR (Studio Reference). These new versions feature all-metal housings and a brand new cable design. On the acoustic side of things, you now get the choice between elevated bass and something that should be close to neutral in terms of the Studio Reference.

Intel Launches 8th Generation Processors With 40 Percent Performance Gains
     Mon, Aug 21 2017 | 5:38P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel is ready to launch their 8th generation processors and are starting by releases a handful of ultra-low voltage 15 Watt TDP U-series processors today. These processors are targeted to laptops, 2-in-1 convertibles or any small form factor that needs a powerful performance with a low thermal envelope. What makes these processors a little confusing is the fact that these are based on a refresh of the Kaby Lake architecture and are what Intel is calling ‘Kaby Lake Refresh’....

XCELLON AC Power Bank (PB-1200AC) Review
     Mon, Aug 21 2017 | 5:37P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today I review the XCELLON 12,000mAh Rechargeable Power Bank with AC & USB Outlet. The model I'm testing today is PB-1200AC and is capable of powering up electronics up to 65W in power, meaning technically you can power a 13-inch MacBook Pro which consumes 60W. Not only does it have an AC outlet, it also comes with a USB port so this power bank should be able to handle just about anything you throw at it making it extremely versatile."

Origin PC EON15-S Review: A Svelte, Sensibly-Priced Gaming Laptop
     Mon, Aug 21 2017 | 9:02A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It was not that long ago when the idea of buying a gaming laptop meant spending a heavy premium versus a desktop setup. That was always a tough pill to swallow, because for the most part, there was no way to upgrade critical components like a GPU, down the road a bit. What you got is what you would have to live with for the life of your laptop. That latter restriction remains today but now, more than ever with more powerful mobile platforms, gaming laptops can offer a reasonably good return on investment. That is certainly true of the EON15-S from Origin PC, the 15.6-inch frag-ready notebook we're looking at today.

Three entry level ‘audiophile’ headphones reviewed
     Mon, Aug 21 2017 | 9:01A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here at KitGuru we review a lot of gaming headsets. Over the last year alone, I’ve seen offerings from Corsair, HyperX, Razer, Fnatic Gear and ASUS ROG to name just five manufacturers. Most of the headsets we review cost between £50-100, making them good options if you don’t want to spend a fortune. However, what if you’re ready to take the next step and upgrade your headset to something better – a dedicated pair of audio-grade headphones, for instance?
