Enermax Platimax D.F. 600W Power Supply Review
     Thu, Jun 22 2017 | 9:02A | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Only power helps in the long run! A sentence, which should be known in the car tuning scene, can also be used in the hardware area. It is true that manufacturers have been struggling to reduce the energy consumption of their products steadily for some years, but someone who has high performance gaming hardware, should know power consumption around 500 watts. More than a small plug-in power supply is necessary to guide our heroes in a safe and secure manner through the levels. It is necessary to ensure a stable, high-performance and above all safe power supply for the domestic PC. Companies like Enermax provide high-performance power supplies such as the Enermax Platimax D.F. 600 watts. Whether it can supply hungry hardware monsters safely with power and what if there are some finesses Enermax has still come up ... all this we now show in the test on OCinside.de.

Seagate Ironwolf: 10TB Storage for NAS
     Wed, Jun 21 2017 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Seagate Guardian Series brings a massive 10TB of storage space in the 3.5’’ form factor. The Guardian Series from Seagate features a total of four lines of products targeted at various marketing segments: the Barracuda Pro for gamers, the Skyhawk for surveillance systems, the FireCuda for the mobile market, and the Ironwolf for NAS. The Barracuda Pro, Ironwolf, and Skyhawk most likely shared the same internal hardware components since the specifications are pretty much identical across all three drives. They all feature 7200 RPM speeds, 7 heads and 14 disks, 256MB of cache, and support the SATA III (6 Gbps) interface. The difference between them is primarily the firmware and cache subsystem where the Barracuda Pro features multi-cache technology. Additionally, the Skyhawk and the Ironwolf probably have gone through more rigorous testing for the type of workloads they are designed for. As we can see, the Barracuda Pro is rated to operate up to 60ºC, while the Ironwolf and the Skywolf are able to operate up to 70ºC. Additionally, the Ironwolf has twice the load and unload cycle than either the Skyhawk or the Barracuda Pro.

Asus ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1080 OC Edition
     Wed, Jun 21 2017 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The GTX 1080 landed last year and quickly became the go-to choice for high-end graphics junkies and the dream card for a lot of gamers. Nvidia couldn’t leave great alone so they stuck 8GB of GDDR5X on the GTX 1080 increasing its memory bandwidth from 320 GB/s to 352 GB/s or an increase of 10% over the standard GTX 1080 memory speed. Asus put their twist on the new design and the Asus ROG Strix GTX 1080 OC Edition 8GB 11Gbps was born giving way to hordes of drooling geeks racing to e-tailers before they sell out of stock!

Mechanical keyboards have long been all the rage for gamers, but they're still a long way off becoming ubiquitous due to their premium price point. The Logitech G413 is a full-sized mechanical gaming-oriented keyboard, but at $90 it undercuts most of its competition while packing in largely the same feature set.

AMD Unveils EPYC 7000 Series Processors
     Tue, Jun 20 2017 | 8:12P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today marks the launch of AMD's EPYC family of processors for data center servers. Based on the company's Zen microarchitecture, it has become abundantly clear that AMD was targeting the lucrative data center market first and foremost with its new CPU architecture and the highly scalable Naples platform that leverages it. Of course Zen scales well for client/consumer desktop applications, as we've seen with AMD's successful Ryzen processor launch. However, the data center is near and dear to the AMD's heart, due to significantly higher chip pricing and better profit margins; not to mention the explosion of the cloud, from software as a service-built platforms like Amazon AWS, to AI, and big data analytics. Today, AMD is giving us a detailed picture of how its Zen-based EPYC processor lineup will flesh-out...
