HyperX announced the Cloud Flight
     Fri, Mar 23 2018 | 9:03A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The HyperX Cloud Flight headset sounds fantastic, is very comfortable, and offers excellent wireless range and battery life. The price is on the premium side for a 2-channel design ($159.99 on Amazon), but if they are in your price range these are really, really good. In fact, HyperX might just have set the standard for gaming headsets with the Cloud Flight."

AOC G2790PX 144Hz Freesync Monitor Review
     Fri, Mar 23 2018 | 9:01A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The G2790PX is one of AOC’s latest 27-inch, 144Hz TN gaming monitors, and unlike most gaming displays, this one is all about style; it’s slick narrow bezel and classy design is seldom seen in gaming circles. Joining this snazzy exterior is the inclusion of Freesync, a fully adjustable stand, plenty of video connections and a USB hub too. It really is every bit the premium monitor… on the outside at least.

Roccat Khan Pro
     Fri, Mar 23 2018 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Roccat Khan Pro claims to be the world's first Hi-Res Audio certified gaming headset. Does that make it sound better than its competitors in the extremely crowded $100 price bracket, where we can already find more than a couple of products with excellent audio performance?

Despite its small dimensions, there is actually enough space for a 280mm radiator. There is also a separate compartment for the power supply allowing for very clean looking builds as well as a left side panel that's been made from tempered glass.

     Thu, Mar 22 2018 | 5:26P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Motherboard players who have been hit by weak demand since the beginning of the year hope the new processors from Intel and AMD can shore up their sales in second-quarter 2018. Asustek Computer, ASRock, Gigabyte Technology and Micro-Star International (MSI) have all begun making deployments, hoping their motherboard shipments in the second quarter can at least remain at levels similar to those a year ago, according market watchers.

Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-OMEGA Case Review
     Thu, Mar 22 2018 | 5:25P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Back in October of 2017 we looked at a budget-oriented case from Corsair, the SPEC-04. Jump forward a few months to CES 2018, and we were presented with a new case from Corsiar’s Carbide series, the SPEC-OMEGA. Packing a similar angular design as other recent SPEC cases, the SPEC-OMEGA is a mid-tower ATX case with bold looks. Add in support for plenty of cooling, as well as some integrated lighting and tempered glass side panel, and you have the makings of a pretty good case. Let’s see if the SPEC-OMEGA lives up to our exSPECtations."

CORSAIR HS60 SURROUND Gaming Headset Review
     Thu, Mar 22 2018 | 5:24P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"We have tried the HS60 right away in The Crew, Need for Speed: Payback, Guild Wars 2, Wolfenstein and Diablo III: thanks to the large drivers, the low frequencies were well represented (but not over the top as on some other gaming headset) and the voices were crystal clear which concluded in a very good overall experience. When turning 7.1 virtual surround on, we have got a positive experience and, in many cases, it will help identifying the virtual objects which produce sound around you easier (location, distance etc…)."

ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2018) Review: 6th Gen Workhorse
     Thu, Mar 22 2018 | 5:24P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Lenovo's ThinkPad X1 Carbon line has been widely regarded as the company's flagship business-class laptop over the past few years. The previous model, which we poured over in deep-dive detail here, brought a new, more compact chassis design with it, along with thinner display bezels and a refresh of Intel's Kaby Lake mobile processor platform. There was one notable caveat with the previous-gen ThinkPad X1 Carbon, and it could have been a showstopper, depending on your perspective and use case. Last year's model was only available with a 1080p resolution, non-touch display, which could be an obvious shortcoming for content creation professionals, as well as crispy, high-res pixel snobs. Fortunately, however, Lenovo decided to change things up with its new ThinkPad X1 Carbon 6th Generation machine, which we previewed for you at CES 2018 earlier this year...

Posted by: STAFF
"Last week on Pi Day marked the release of the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ with a slightly higher clocked Cortex-A53 processors, dual-band 802.11ac WiFi, faster Ethernet, and other minor enhancements over its predecessor. I've been spending the past few days putting the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ through its paces the past few days with an array of benchmarks while comparing the performance to other ARM SBCs as well as a few lower-end Intel x86 systems too. Here is all you need to know about the Raspberry Pi 3 B+ performance."
