AMD Radeon RX 480 8GB @ LanOC Reviews
     Wed, Jun 29 2016 | 9:40A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia fans have had their fun with their recently introduced cards but in the middle of all of that, we have also been hearing more and more about Polaris, AMDs latest GPU architecture. Most of it was rumors, but at the beginning of this month AMD did host a Webcast at Computex and finally gave us some more information about it. The big news was that the new RX 480 was coming on June 29th, it will have impressively smooth VR, and its price would be $199. Well, I’ve had the RX 480 in the office for the last few days and today's the day that we can finally sit down and talk about how it performs. At its price point, we know that AMD isn’t looking to shake up the top of the charts, but it's clear they want to bring good performance to the mainstream gaming market. The high-end cards might be exciting, but this is the price range people are buying the most, I’m excited to find out if the RX 480 is worth all of the hype.

ASUS STRIX GTX 1080 Review
     Wed, Jun 29 2016 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the spotlight today is the ASUS STRIX GTX 1080. ASUS has taken this Pascal-based card, applied a significant factory overclock to its Base/Boost Clock, dropped on their much loved DirectCU III cooling solution and decked the front and reverse with Aura RGB LED lighting. The NVIDIA’s Founder’s Edition of the GTX 1080 has already had a few blips with fan speeds jumping to 3000RPM and Base Clocks throttling back after ~30 minutes of usage – today, we’ll be analysing this STRIX card to see if those discrepancies exist. Let’s begin!

Dell's Alienware 13 gaming notebook
     Wed, Jun 29 2016 | 9:00A | Notebooks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell's Alienware 13 gaming notebook has been a favorite among gamers on the go and power users that want a little more horsepower in a light 13-inch machine. However, over the past couple of years, the Alienware team hasn't changed-up the design much, until today that is. The company is officially making the OLED display powered Alienware 13, that we saw back in January at CES, available today in conjunction with the E3 show out in LA. Our initial impressions in the short time we've had the system in-house are similar to our first impressions at CES; hell yes, that OLED display sure is gorgeous...
