HP Spectre x360 15 Review: A Versatile Thing
     Sat, Apr 22 2017 | 4:03P | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
HP is not one to let the weeds grow under its feet, at least not when it comes to its Spectre x360 line. The company it has no problem changing things up in an effort to keep its premium ultraportable hip and trendy. Having already gone through a few mild wardrobe changes over the past few years, the newest iteration of the Spectre x360 brings another slightly different look than last year's model -- one that is perhaps more refined and mature. It retains the gold accents introduced by its predecessor, but does not flaunt them quite as loudly. Other upgrades are not as subtle. HP continues to offer the Spectre x360 in 13.3-inch and 15.6-inch form factors, the latter of which we're reviewing here...

Creative Sound BlasterX Siege M04 Gaming Mouse Review
     Sat, Apr 22 2017 | 4:01P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Siege M04 mouse from Creative takes part of the Sound BlasterX product family and incorporates one of the best sensors on the market: PixArt PMW3360, which we have also found with the Rival 700 by SteelSeries. The product does feature RGB lighting near its base which is configurable via the Sound Blaster Connect application and can be synchronized with other peripherals supporting the Aurora Reactive technology such as the Vanguard K08 or the Sound BlasterX Katana."

Samsung CF791 34in Quantum Dot Curved Monitor
     Sat, Apr 22 2017 | 4:00P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“Quantum” is one of those technology words that seems to generally be associated with good things in computing – like “fuzzy logic” used to be with washing machines. But where the Samsung CF791 is concerned, quantum means something. This is the first screen we have seen with “quantum dot” technology, which is an improvement on regular LCD technology that promises better colour.

The GIGABYTE Z270X-Gaming 8 motherboard
     Sat, Apr 22 2017 | 12:01P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With the release of Intel Z270 chipset, GIGABYTE unveiled its AORUS line of products. The AORUS branding differentiates the enthusiast and gamer friendly products from other GIGABYTe product lines, similar to how ASUS uses the ROG branding to differentiate their high performance product line. The Z270X-Gaming 8 is one of two "enhanced" boards in the AORUS product line, factory-customized with a Bitspower designed VRM hybrid water block. The board features the black and white branding common to the AORUS product line with the rear panel cover and chipset featuring the brand logos. The board is designed around the Intel Z270 chipset with in-built support for the latest Intel LGA1151 Kaby Lake processor line (as well as support for Skylake processors) and Dual Channel DDR4 memory running at a 2400MHz speed. The Z270X-Gaming 8 can be found in retail with an MRSP of $399.99.

Razer BlackWidow Chroma V2 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Sat, Apr 22 2017 | 12:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With the BlackWidow Chroma V2 keyboard, Razer is incorporating its own technologies inside the mechanical switches, which are RGB enabled and have the advantage of the Chroma LED lighting system. The Chroma Configurator section is very easy to use compared to other brands and the effects are very fluent; depending on the effect, we can always choose miscellaneous options such as speed, width, pause, speed, angle and so on. If the current game does also support the Chroma SDK, we will get a dedicated LED effect as intended by the developers in that game mode."

AMD Ryzen Performance Update Released For Ashes of the Singularity
     Sat, Apr 22 2017 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When the AMD Ryzen 7 platform was released many of the reviews were critical of the 1080P gaming performance on the Ryzen 7 processor series. AMD promised that we would see a series of game and engine updates for the new Ryzen architecture fairly quickly and the first game title to become optimized for Ryzen is Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation! We tested the ‘old’ build (version 2.10.25624) versus the build that came out tonight (version 2.10.26118) and the differences are huge. Read on to see just how big they are!

SanDisk Extreme Pro 240GB SSD Review
     Sat, Apr 22 2017 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The product name 'Kingston HyperX Alloy FPS Mechanical Gaming Keyboard' is wider than the keyboard itself. As you can summarize from its name, it is aimed towards First Person Shooting? You would speculate that Kingston would eventually have MMORPG/MOBA keyboard with on-the-fly macro keys. Kingston isn't very shy to diversify, similar to Corsair. Once known for flash and memory products, Kingston has a good reputation for selling headphones and headsets of different make, features and pricing.

ASUS ROG Gladius II Review
     Fri, Apr 21 2017 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You've probably noticed the current shift towards RGB-everything in the PC market, with ASUS heavily towing the line; some love it, some loathe it, but it's here to stay and is being adopted rapidly. ASUS seem keen to update their product line to incorporate their "ASUS Aura" branding across the board.

Linksys Velop AC2200 Triband Router Review
     Fri, Apr 21 2017 | 4:00P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
You wait decades for wireless mesh network products to arrive and then two come at once. Just a few months after NETGEAR’s Orbi hit the scene, we have the Linksys Velop. This attempts to go one better by including not just two meshing units, but three in the kit we were sent. How does it compare to the Orbi?
