MSI X370 Krait Gaming AM4 Motherboard Review
     Fri, Jul 21 2017 | 12:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For those who have not kept up with motherboard naming schemes, MSI’s motherboard product line might seem confusing at first just because of the sheer amount of motherboards they offer. In actuality, they have the simplest and easily understandable one there is since there are only technically two: gaming and non-gaming (aka Pro series). Since we often don’t see much …

What Games Can Ultrabooks Really Play?
     Fri, Jul 21 2017 | 12:00P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Integrated graphics in most ultraportables are not as useless as they once were. It is actually possible to game on an ultrabook, it's just a matter of choosing the game and its settings carefully. We've tested 34 games on a ThinkPad X1 Carbon to give you an idea of what games are actually playable on modern ultraportables.

Review: Razer Lancehead Tournament Edition Gaming Mouse
     Fri, Jul 21 2017 | 9:03A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If you look at Razer’s gaming mouse lineup today, they have a little bit of something for everyone, but one area that’s been lacking is a premium ambidextrous gaming mouse offering. While Razer does offer the back to basics Abyssus gaming mouse which features an ambidextrous design, it’s a relatively lower end gaming mouse that lacks some of..."

Posted by: STAFF
Along with preparing a series of Skylake-X processors, Intel's counter to Ryzen includes a Kaby Lake-X lineup consisting of the Core i5-7640X, which is basically a renamed 7600K, and the Core i7-7740X, a 7700K in disguise. Or are they?

     Fri, Jul 21 2017 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

Gigabyte AB350N-Gaming WIFI AM4 Motherboard Review
     Thu, Jul 20 2017 | 7:37P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The most resounding question asked at CES 2017 after showing AM4 motherboards before launch is “Where are the ITX motherboards?”. That is really all you need to know about how popular ITX options are these days. Especially since it was not possible on AMD’s AM3+ platform with FX CPUs and definitely not going to be possible with AMD TR4 Threadripper

ASRock Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming K4 Review
     Thu, Jul 20 2017 | 7:32P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This motherboard represents ASRock's B350 gaming motherboard and competes against the likes of the MSI TOMAHAWK B350, and the GIGABYTE AB350 Gaming 3. The B350 chipset is an interesting inception, as it allows gamers to create a powerful system at a lower cost when compared to the X370 motherboards. The primary differences between the chipsets are: four fewer USB 3.1 Gen1, 2x SATA3 ports fewer, and no SLI support. With that in mind, if you don't plan on running a home server, or running more than one NVIDIA graphics card, a budget conscious gamer may want to consider a B350 motherboard.
