Posted by: STAFF
17" laptops have long been maligned for their bulk, but the onward march of technology means one can now get a big machine like Gigabyte's P57W that's slim and trim. We put this large laptop to the test to see whether gamers on the go should go big.

MSI Gaming 3 and 4-way SLI Bridge Connector
     Fri, Jun 24 2016 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”The add-on fan is a great idea that takes the often used trick of mounting a fan over your card(s) to cool multiple GPUs and makes it a part that is incorporated seamlessly into the package. I found that at stock speeds the benefit of this fan was less than the advertised 10% improvement. However, there is a benefit in every scenario I tested bar one. The target audience for these SLI bridges are the high-end gaming crowd who want to get that last FPS or visual quality setting just because... well they can. If you have the means to populate all of the slots on your high-end gaming rig, the additional coin for an SLI bridge kit such as the MSI Gaming SLI Bridge kit, then the added cost won't be an issue for you. Pricing currently sits in the $50-$53 range for each one of these kits, with the 4-Way kit at $53 and the 3-Way kit coming in at $49.99. Meant for use with MSI Gaming GTX 9xxx cards, I found it the 3-Way bridge worked well with my reference 7 series hardware without any issues setting up the configuration. After going through my testing, this kit does a great job building performance through the addition of multiple cards and cooling the cards once in place. If a 3-Way or 4-Way graphics solution is beyond your reach, MSI does offer its Gaming SLI bridge connections for a 2-Way setup. Go get you some!”

Corsair VOID RGB USB Review
     Fri, Jun 24 2016 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is our second outing from the VOID family of Corsair gaming headsets, we previously had a look at the Void Surround, a versatile analogue stereo headset that ships with a USB dongle. This time we go on a date with the VOID RGB USB, a dedicated USB gaming headset that had all the digital features and controls built in, including, as you would guess, RGB lighting. Dolby Surround returns to supply the virtual 7.1 rendering that is delivered by powerful 50mm neodymium drivers. The headband and earcups use memory foam covered in a microfibre mesh to keep things all snug.

How high will she go? Can the $449 GTX 1070 outperform a $1000 GTX TITAN X? The answer is exciting.

Crucial MX300 SSD Tested
     Thu, Jun 23 2016 | 4:02P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Marketed under Micron's consumer brand Crucial, the MX300 is their first entrant into the consumer space, as well as the first consumer SSD sporting IMFT 3D NAND. Crucial is known for their budget-minded SSDs, and for the MX300 they chose to go with the best cost/GB they could manage with what they had to work with. That meant putting this new 3D NAND into TLC mode. Now there are many TLC haters out there, but remember this is 3D NAND. Samsung's 850 EVO can exceed 500 MB/sec writes to TLC at its 500GB capacity point, and this MX300 is a product that is launching with *only* a 750GB capacity, so its TLC speed should be at least reasonable.

Asus RT-AC88U AC3100 MU-MIMO Router Review
     Thu, Jun 23 2016 | 4:01P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
A second wave of 802.11ac wireless routers have begun to appear, and the new must-have feature is MU-MIMO, short for Multiple User, Multiple Input, Multiple Output. We already reviewed the first two MU-MIMO routers we could get our hands on from Linksys and Netgear, and now Asus has entered the fray with a dual-band AC3100 router dubbed the RT-AC88U. This is a flagship router that has all the bells and whistles one would expect at a $300 price point, but it differentiates itself from the competition by offering Link Aggregation and eight LAN ports, which are uncommon features in a consumer-class router...

Dell Latitude 13 7370 Ultrabook Review
     Thu, Jun 23 2016 | 2:37P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Traditionally, Ultrabooks command a high premium. After all, you are getting a high-performance laptop, crammed with the latest features, with typically slim and lightweight bodies. Let’s not forget, too, that Intel has to certify a laptop as an Ultrabook before it can be sold using the Ultrabook name – so you are paying for bragging rights, too. As such, it cannot be much of a surprise that pricing for the Dell Latitude 13 7370 starts at £1179.

Crucial MX300 750GB Solid State Drive
     Thu, Jun 23 2016 | 2:37P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
3D NAND is something we started talking about two years ago when Samsung released their 850 Pro solid state drive which was the first consumer solid state drive to feature 3D NAND. With the launch of the MX300 Series Crucial becomes the second company to use 3D NAND in a consumer solid state drive. The drive is engineered with Micron 3D NAND technology, resulting in an endurance rating of up to 220TB total bytes written by leveraging larger NAND cells to deliver top-notch performance and prolong endurance. Furthermore, Dynamic Write Acceleration, a technology that uses an adaptable pool of high-speed and single-level cell flash memory, enables faster saves and file transfers. Compared to 16nm planar NAND, Micron’s 3D TLC NAND triples that density. This not only will help lower solid state drive pricing, but also enable higher capacity drives. Currently the MX300 is only available in a 750GB capacity, which has a price of only $199.99."

Corsair SF600 600W SFX Power Supply Review
     Thu, Jun 23 2016 | 2:17P | Power Supply | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair has gotten into making computers smaller lately with its Bulldog 4K Living Room Gaming System, and now it is going to share its SF600 power supply that follows the SFX standard form factor, which is tiny for a 600 watt PSU. Given its diminutive stature, has Corsair packed it to the gills with good power?
