MSI Aegis 3 8th PROTOTYPE! (i7-8700 & 1070 Ti) Review
     Sat, Sep 22 2018 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I’ve reviewed a lot of gaming PCs for KitGuru – to the point where I’ve lost count. I have never seen a PC like the MSI Aegis 3 8th, however, as it is truly unique. I am of course talking about the aggressive, angular design of the machine – you will either love it or hate it. It does have some decent internal hardware, though, including an i7-8700, GTX 1070 Ti and support for Intel’s Optane technology. Is it any good?

MSI B450 Tomahawk
     Fri, Sep 21 2018 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD X470 is the top motherboard chipset for AMD’s AM4 socket but it comes with a noticeable price premium over the second-tier B450 chipset motherboards which, for most applications and users, can be difficult to justify. And unlike Intel, which intentionally removes overclocking from all chipsets below Z370, AMD fully support and endorse overclocking for the B450 platform. That means motherboards like this MSI B450 Tomahawk can offer an attractive suite of connectivity and features, including overclocking capability, for a surprisingly modest price point. Intel’s second tier chipsets for LGA1151v2, like H370 and B360, just can’t compete.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti & RTX 2080 Founders Edition
     Thu, Sep 20 2018 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”Looking at the raw performance of these Turing architecture cards there is no doubt that NVIDIA has built the performance curves to absolutely crush the competition. When you see performance results on the order of 30% to 40% or better than the previous generation you know that a new standard of performance has been set. In each and every game the performance of the RTX 2080 Ti Rounders Edition and RTX 2080 Founders Edition just keep pushing the envelope. There is not a game in my test suite that was not playable at 4K. Overclocking the cards just pushes the performance envelope even higher. The new tuning tools in EVGA's Precision X1 application enable the novice overclocker to get a respectable performance increase by pushing one radio button on the screen. The application does the rest for you. Just don't forget to apply the settings. Part of what drives this performance increase is the all new full length vapor chamber based cooling solution. By switching from a radial fan to a pair of 100mm axial fans cooling performance improves by 10 degrees over the Pascal based GTX 1080 Ti FE and GTX 1080 FE without a noise penalty. NVIDIA borrowed a page out of their board partners tool box with this redesign.. If it works why fight it. When you see the on die transistor count increase by 2x plus you have to keep the silicon cool. That the cooling solution does."

Creative Sound BlasterX G6 Review
     Thu, Sep 20 2018 | 9:03A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Sound BlasterX G6 follows in the footsteps of the Sound BlasterX G5 from 2016 and improves upon the foundation that the G5 provided. Some notable upgrades that have been made are an enhanced DAC and Amp. The previous version utilised a 24-bit / 192kHz - which is impressive in its own right, but the G6 betters that with a new 32-bit / 384kHz variant. The Amp also sees a boost and features an ultra-low out impedance of 1ohm which is great when compared to 2.2ohm over the G5. The G6 also adds support for Dolby Digital Decoding and also increases the DNR from 120dB to 130dB.

Samsung Galaxy Watch Review: Feature-Rich
     Thu, Sep 20 2018 | 9:00A | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In early August, at its Unpacked 2018 event in NYC where the Galaxy Note 9 was officially unveiled, Samsung took the opportunity to showcase its latest high-end wearable device as well, the new Galaxy Watch. Although the wearables market as a whole hasn’t quite lived up to initial predictions, Samsung has persevered and steadily iterated and improved upon its initial designs. As a result, the company now has a relatively extensive line-up of wearable products, targeting a wide array of lifestyles. The new Galaxy Watch is the polished, jack-of-all-trades of the family. It has the aesthetics and styling of a high-end sports watch, with all of the sensors and capabilities of a specialized sports / fitness targeted wearable...

ZOTAC GAMING RTX 2080 Ti AMP Review
     Wed, Sep 19 2018 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In our first NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti custom-design, we have in our hands the ZOTAC GAMING RTX 2080 Ti AMP. As tradition would have it, ZOTAC’s AMP edition graphics cards are factory overclocked and with this next-generation model, we also receive a triple fan configuration in a bid to keep temperatures under control. While the memory clock speed remains untouched, the GPU boost clock benefits from a mere 7% overclock – taking the Founders Edition boost of 1545MHz, up to 1665MHz.
