ASUS ROG STRIX-GTX1070-O8G-GAMING
     Fri, Jul 22 2016 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We are always excited to see a new ROG product, and even more excited to see a ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1070. As with previous generations, there’s a “top dog” video card, the GTX 1080 in this case, then the next step down is typically 2/3 the price of the higher SKU with 3/4 the horsepower which is exactly where the ASUS ROG Strix GeForce GTX 1070 lands at.

Vortex Pok3r RGB @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Jul 22 2016 | 4:01P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For a while there I was covering a new RGB keyboard every two weeks but I haven’t covered any in over a month now. This is partially due to all of the video card launches, but also I’ve been turning away a lot of companies as well. Frankly, everyone in their mom is making their new RGB mechanical keyboards and there just isn’t much separating them. I would prefer to keep things fresh and check out a variety. So to change things up today I’m taking a look at the new Vortex Pok3r RGB. Those of you who see me and my wife out at LANs has most likely seen both of us gaming using Vortex Poker keyboards (she has a Poker 2 and I have a Pok3r), so I’m excited to finally be able to talk a little about one of my favorite keyboards. On top of this one having RGB backlighting, it also sports Cherry’s new Nature White keyswitches, so this is my first experience with them as well.

Posted by: STAFF
3DMark Time Spy came out yesterday and it is the latest and greatest DirectX 12 benchmark test for gaming PCs running Windows 10. This DirectX 12 Feature Level 11_0 benchmark utilizes a pure DirectX 12 game engine that supports features like asynchronous compute, explicit multi-adapter, and multi-threading! We ran 3DMark Time Spy on our tried and true video card test system on more than a half dozen video cards and got some pretty interesting results!

HiFiMAN Edition X Planar Magnetic Headphones
     Fri, Jul 22 2016 | 12:54P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HiFiMAN's newest high-end headphone, the Edition X, bears a striking resemblance to their flagship HE-1000. It uses the same driver design without the fancy nano materials found in the $1200 more expensive HE-1000, but is, at $1799, still the second most expensive headphone in HiFiMAN's line-up.

Razer ManO'War Review
     Fri, Jul 22 2016 | 12:54P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Man'O War aims to fill that void. Addressing the primary concerns regarding wireless performance, Razer have put a lot of consideration into aspects such as battery life and audio lag. Razer are promising a 14-hour lifespan that is expandable to 20hours if you turn off the Chroma LED lighting. To tackle the latency issue, the Man'O War comes with its own plug-and-play compact 2.4GHz wireless dongle, ensuring quick and easy pairing and a lag free experience.

Cooler Master Masterkeys Lite L Review
     Fri, Jul 22 2016 | 12:52P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Competition in the gaming market is fierce, with seemingly every brand pushing their own gaming peripherals for every budget imaginable. Mechanical keyboards are now packing all kinds of crazy features, and with RGB being the main focus for 2016, the price of premium keyboards is pushing into the realms of crazy for many consumers, with prices often hitting around £150 for a gaming model. Cooler Master are fighting back against this with their latest premium gaming bundle, which still clocks in at around £120, but comes with a well equipped RGB keyboard, as well as a high-performance gaming mouse in one tidy package.

3DMark's implementation of asynchronous compute
     Fri, Jul 22 2016 | 9:02A | Benchmarks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For today's GPUs? We'll need to keep watching and see how software evolves. Bulldozer was a clever architecture, too. Software didn't evolve in the way that AMD expected, making the redundancies they eliminated not as redundant as they expected. Unlike Bulldozer, asynchronous compute is being adopted, both on the PC and on the consoles. Again, we'll need to see statements from AMD, NVIDIA, and Futuremark before we can predict how current hardware will perform in future software, though."

Kingston 512GB SDXC Card Review (Class 10 UHS-1) - Size Matters
     Fri, Jul 22 2016 | 9:00A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Kingston Class 10 UHS-1 512GB SDXC Card is a great addition to the avid photographers tool chest. Its high-capacity and value is matched with transfer speed highs of 92MB/s read and 82MB/s write which is well above posted specifications. Not only will this card be excellent for professional photography needs, but also, it will provide stutterless recording of 1080p HD and 3D videos as well. Adding to that the fact that the Kingston 512GB SDXC Card comes with a lifetime warranty, and finding anything else with this performance, value and guarantee anytime soon just may be rather difficult. For now though, there is no doubt whatsoever where the Kingston 512GB SDXDC Card will be calling its new home!

Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Posted by: STAFF
The G810 Orion Spectrum RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard by Logitech may not be as impressive as its larger brother the G910 Orion Spark but that also means its smaller and more subtle enclosure has a place on every desk.

AMD's Radeon RX 480
     Thu, Jul 21 2016 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD's Radeon RX 480 turned in great performance in our original review, but some sites discovered that the card drew a potentially troublesome amount of power from the PCIe slot. AMD's Radeon Software 16.7.1 update promised to fix this issue. We take a second look at the card to see whether the fix affects performance.

Samsung Gear Fit2 Review
     Thu, Jul 21 2016 | 4:01P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Blending some of the best features from a fitness tracker, including the ability to measure activities using an embedded GPS and heart rate monitor (HRM), it’s clear Samsung had fitness enthusiasts in mind when it developed the Gear Fit2. But Samsung also recognized there are many people who want more than just the basic features of a fitness tracking wearable, so the company added a few smartwatch features like the ability to read and respond to text messages (albeit in limited form) or see who is calling.

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
