 [LATEST]  LaCie 2TB Porsche Design USB 3.0 Hard Drive
     Fri, Jul 29 2016 | 4:03P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The LaCie 2TB Porsche Design USB hard drive in question features a USB C connector, with adapters to make it compatible with USB 3.1/3.0/2.0. It comes pre-installed with some useful utility software, and you can choose from either silver or gold finishes and capacities of 1TB, 2TB, or 4TB. In this review we will be checking out a gold unit with a capacity of 2TB to see if it is all show and no go.

 [LATEST]  Asus RX 480 Strix Gaming OC Aura RGB 8192MB
     Fri, Jul 29 2016 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD launched their RX 480 at the end of June and I was on hand to offer my analysis of the reference card at the time. Today we present our review of the new Asus RX 480 Strix Gaming OC, a custom solution featuring enhanced clock speeds, a modified triple fan cooler and ‘Aura’ RGB lighting. At £289.99 inc vat the Asus card hits the same price points as many Nvidia GTX 1060 solutions, so we have high hopes it can compete.

 [LATEST]  AMD Announces Polaris-Based Radeon Pro WX Series
     Fri, Jul 29 2016 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD took the wraps off its latest pro graphics solutions at Siggraph today, and announced three new professional graphics cards in the new Polaris-based Radeon Pro WX Series. The Radeon Pro WX 4100 is the entry-level model with a half-height design for use in small form-factor workstations. The Radeon Pro WX 5100 is the middle child, while the Radeon Pro WX 7100 is AMD's current top-end WX model. None of these cards will be giving the new NVIDIA Quadro P6000 a run for its money in terms of performance, but they don’t have to. The Quadro card will no doubt costs thousands of dollars, while the Radeon Pro WX 7100 will eek in at just under $1,000. The Radeon Pro WX 5100 and 4100 will slot in somewhat below that mark.

SilverStone’s 700W SFX-L power supply
     Fri, Jul 29 2016 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"SilverStone’s 700W SFX-L power supply is fully modular and comes with eight relatively short ribbon style cables intended for use in small form factor cases. If you find one or more cables are too short for your particular build (especially if you are installing the SX700-LPT in a larger enclosure) SilverStone offers a complete line of full-size modular cables that can be purchased separately. All of the sleeved cables in the PP06 and PP07 Series will work with the SX700-LPT power supply."

The GAMDIAS Hephaestus v2 Surround Sound Gaming headset features a 50mm USB connection, built-in smart controller, large ear cups, decorative LEDs, omnidirectional mike, and finally “bass impact.’ This takes low frequency bass tones and applies a slight vibration effect to let wearers “feel” the sound.

MSI GTX 1060 GAMING X Review
     Thu, Jul 28 2016 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Under our close eye today is the GTX 1060 courtesy of the GAMING X. This graphics card takes full advantage of a cooling overhaul by using the Twin Frozr 6 solution – promising to bring in benefits to both the temperatures and noise levels. MSI has also applied a factory overclock to this card bringing the GPU clock speed up to 1594MHz and the memory clock speed to 8.1Gbps. Will this offer us a significant advantage over the GTX 1060 Founder’s Edition?

Razer Naga Hex V2 Review
     Thu, Jul 28 2016 | 4:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The 7 mechanical buttons form a complete ring around the thumb resting point with a soft rubber grip at its centre. The Hex V2 brings in other modern revisions that are contemporary with other Razer mice, including the lush textured surface that provides good grip and is far more pleasing to touch than the cringe worthy slippery-velvet rubber coating (maybe it is only me that doesn't like this?) that is still unfortunately found on many gaming products.

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
