AMD Ryzen 5 1600 Processor Review
     Wed, May 24 2017 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This has led me down another hole recently, wondering if we could further compartmentalize the gaming performance of the Ryzen processors using memory latency. As I showed in my Ryzen 5 review, memory frequency and throughput directly correlates to gaming performance improvements, in the order of 14% in some cases. But what about looking solely at memory latency alone?

Asus ROG Strix GL502VS Gaming Laptop Review
     Wed, May 24 2017 | 4:02P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Asus ROG Strix GL502VS sits towards the top end of the performance and price scale. It doesn't have any ludicrous dual-GPU setups inside, but its GeForce GTX 1070 discrete graphics chip offers better performance than your typical gaming laptop. It packs a 15.6-inch 1080p G-Sync display and a range of other solid hardware in a relatively portable form factor.

Crucial Ballistix Elite DDR4-3466 Memory Review
     Wed, May 24 2017 | 4:01P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We’re in the middle of a transition from the DDR3 memory standard that has served us well for a decade to the new DDR4 standard. With higher bandwidth at lower voltage, DDR4 seems a perfect match for our compute-intensive multi-core CPU world. In this article Benchmark Reviews examines Crucial’s Ballistix Elite DDR4 enthusiast memory, which runs at an eye-watering 3466Mhz. We’ll test it against “standard” DDR4 to see what difference this extra performance makes.

Biostar Z270GT8
     Wed, May 24 2017 | 4:00P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Biostar's Z270GT8, is more than just a full-sized version of the Z270GT4 which we looked at earlier. It includes everything the Z270GT4 board did, but adds in Intel Optane functionality and a few other things. The Biostar Z270GT8 is a big departure from past Biostar products, and this isn't your everyday entry-level board.

ASUS ROG GeForce GTX 1050 Ti STRIX Video Card Review
     Wed, May 24 2017 | 3:54P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti was released in October 2016 it has become one of the most desirable cards to have for 1080P gaming due to be priced around $150. Over the past the past seven months there have been many driver updates, so we wanted to take a fresh look at a GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB graphics card to see how they perform. We managed to get our hands on an ASUS GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB ROG STRIX OC Edition graphics card and gave it a test spin!

GeIL EVO X 16GB DDR4 3000MHz - Failure to Launch?
     Wed, May 24 2017 | 3:53P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
GeIL (Golden Emperor International Ltd.) has delivered some RGB DDR4 memory called Evo X that has two distinct and separate modes of operation for the RGB lighting. The simple method is to power the GeIL DDR4 from a 9V/12V fan header and then select a lighting mode using the switches built in to the memory modules. Alternatively, provided you have a compatible motherboard, you can use an RGB header that connects to Asus Aura, ASRock Aura, Gigabyte RGB Fusion or MSI Mystic Light Sync.

Apple MacBook Pro is the Worst Computer Ever
     Wed, May 24 2017 | 3:52P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just as we saw when the original MacBook Pro Retina's launched, Apple likes to introduce these machines at high costs and then bring them down generation over generation. With some price decreases, leading to potential increased adoption of the Touch Bar and subsequently more software support, it could be a more compelling product. But for now, I'd stay away."

ICY DOCK FlexiDOCK MB522SP-B Review
     Wed, May 24 2017 | 3:50P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink

"flexiDOCK MB522SP-B is a well-built case upgrade device that allows 2x 2.5’’ HDD/SSD installations with variable heights and for additional durability, the outer enclosure is made of metal. This type of product is a very good time saver in applications where drive swapping occurs regularly such as data cloning, data backup, audio/video editing, digital forensic, drive recovery, drive testing for performance purposes or any other tasks."
