     Fri, Nov 24 2017 | 8:20P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD Ryzen is set to yet again take on Intel’s dominant position in the market. However, in this latest implementation, Zen is being coupled with AMD’s Vega graphics cores for a fully integrated laptop solution in Ryzen Mobile, with the potential for a significantly more robust multimedia and gaming experience as a result. So what happens when you bring the two together on a single piece of silicon and configure it within the confines of a laptop PC?

Patriot Memory Viper 4 Series DDR4 32GB 3000MHz Memory Kit Review
     Fri, Nov 24 2017 | 8:20P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The Viper 4 Series DDR4 32GB 3000MHz kit from Patriot Memory is not as flashy as other RGB offerings we have tested from other manufacturers, but comes with a good quality aluminum heat spreader for fast heat dissipation, while using the airflow inside the computer case. 32GB of RAM should be enough for most todays’ games and productivity applications, while most systems should be able to run this kit at the stock speeds without issues, thanks to the pre-programmed XMP 2.0 profile."

Top Tech Gift Ideas For Black Friday Shoppers
     Fri, Nov 24 2017 | 8:18P | Beginners Guides | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are almost to the end of yet another wonderfully innovative year in technology. The non-stop innovation of the tech sector has presented us with products and services that deliver more horsepower, lower power consumption, and smaller form factors that deliver more value and features. The tradition of Black Friday began with retail merchants feverishly working over the year to pull their bottom lines out of the "red", and utilizing the US Thanksgiving long holiday weekend to bolster sales and revenue. For 65 years value seeking consumers in the U.S. have been looking forward to today. While most Americans are recovering from excessive levels of tryptophan and many people around the world are putting up their holiday decorations, it’s Black Friday, the official kick-off to the holiday shopping season...

PC-based game analysis
     Fri, Nov 24 2017 | 8:12P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Console game performance has always been an area that we've been interested in here at PC Perspective but has been mostly out of our reach to evaluate with any kind of scientific tilt. Our Frame Rating methodology for PC-based game analysis relies on having an overlay application during screen capture which is later analyzed by a series of scripts. Obviously, we can not take this approach with consoles as we cannot install our own code on the consoles to run that overlay. Recently, we came across an open source project which aims to address this. Trdrop is an open source software built upon OpenCV, a stalwart library in the world of computer vision. Using OpenCV, trdrop can analyze the frames of ordinary gameplay (without an overlay), detecting if there are differences between two frames, looking for dropped frames and tears to come up with a real-time frame rate.

Corsair HS50 Gaming Headset Review
     Fri, Nov 24 2017 | 8:02P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It is fair to say Corsair products don’t usually come cheap. With its new HS50 headset, however, Corsair is appealing to the gamer on a budget as the device costs less than £55. At this price, the HS50 is understandably lacking things like virtual surround-sound, detachable cables and there isn’t even any RGB lighting! Instead, the focus for the HS50 is very much on impressive sound and premium build quality – so just how good is it?
