Posted by: STAFF
The short version of this review is that Phanteks has given its Enthoo Pro M case a minor update and has changed the main side panel for a sheet of tempered glass. The slightly longer version is that Phanteks has revised its superb entry level Pro M case by replacing one of the few weak features, a flexible steel side panel with a so-so plastic window, with a gorgeous panel of tempered glass.

Samsung 960 Pro M.2 NVMe SSD Review (2TB) - Breathtaking Speed
     Thu, Oct 20 2016 | 11:41A | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Size, weight, speed, latency, endurance, power consumption, price, warranty, etc. All these characteristics help to define storage media and are what classify some drives as entry level, others as mainstream, and a for a select few, enthusiast/prosumer. What if we said we have a drive that is near the perfect mix of all these and the result is that it is the best consumer SSD in the market at this time? What if we said this SSD is not only the best, but the highest capacity M.2 device money can currently buy? What if we said it is faster than any other consumer NVMe SSD we tested, ever? Well, if you have been keeping up with the news as of late, you would be 100% correct on your assumption that we were talking about Samsung's latest release, the Samsung 960 Pro. It is a revolutionary M.2 NVMe SSD product that breaks the boundaries and delivers speeds that for many, are beyond what they can actually take advantage of! Let's get on with the review and learn more shall we?

Asus ROG G752 Review: A Pascal Packing Mobile Powerhouse
     Thu, Oct 20 2016 | 11:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Asus is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its Republic of Gamers (ROG) brand this year. The manufacturer launched its ROG line in 2006 and has since developed a wide range of gaming products under the brand, including some monstrous gaming notebooks like the one we'll be showing you here. With the arrival of NVIDIA’s Pascal architecture this summer, the hulking systems are getting a shot in the arm, so we brought Asus’ flagship mobile gaming machine, the ROG G752VS XB78K, in house to see what you get when you go big. The efficiency of the Pascal architecture has made for mobile GPUs that are very similar to their desktop counterparts. In fact, NVIDIA has dropped the “M” from the product names for its latest mobile GPUs, including the GeForce GTX 1070 that appears in the ROG G752 we have here...

Gone are the days of normal gaming mice. These days we have gaming mice that are designed specifically for a certain type or game or playing style.
