ZOTAC GTX 1070 Ti AMP! Extreme Edition GPU Review
     Sun, Dec 10 2017 | 4:02P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This GTX 1070 Ti variant is almost typical of AMP! Extreme editions. The exception is due to Nvidia’s policy of not allowing its AIC partners to have out-of-the-box factory overclocks. The reason is simply to place a space between this and the GTX 1080. While naturally, the GTX 1070 Ti falls between the GTX 1070 and the GTX 1080, the performance is somewhat close to the latter. Many claim its due to Vega’s presence. It would be easier to believe that if VEGA series graphic cards were easily available with its power consumption staying in the similar levels as with the Pascal architecture.

Gamdias Hermes M3 RGB Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Sun, Dec 10 2017 | 4:00P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Being the first 87-key RGB Low-Profile mechanical gaming keyboard, the Hermes M3 focuses on fast key response and accurate actuation in a small and compact form factor. An aluminum back plate creates the backbone to the keyboard to give it a premium look and feel, and the compact design does allow for more room for a mouse. This keyboard does come in four variants; blue, brown, red, and black switches. Our friends at Gamdias were kind enough to send Benchmark Reviews their Hermes M3 with blue low-profile mechanical switches for this review.

Corsair MM800 RGB Polaris Gaming Mouse Pad Review
     Sun, Dec 10 2017 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If you are a serious gamer you know that your gaming surface is very important part of your gaming setup. A mouse pad can make all the different between turning that corner faster, getting that headshot, and overall having a better gaming experience. While mouse pads have remained pretty much the same over the past few years, recently with RGB lighting becoming popular we’ve seen it integrated into mouse pads. Corsair’s implementation is their MM80 RGB Polaris, which is a large mouse pad with RGB lighting around it and you also get an extra USB port to plug in your mouse. Since this is a Corsair product you can fully customize the lighting with Corsair’s CUE software. Let’s jump in and see what this mouse pad is all about!"

AMD's Ryzen 5 2500U APU
     Sat, Dec 09 2017 | 4:03P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
As we've continued testing AMD's Ryzen 5 2500U APU over the past few days, we've been confronted with the problem of comparing battery life across laptops with different screen sizes. Many readers suggested that I should take each machine's internal display out of the picture by hooking them up to external monitors. While I wanted to get real-world battery-life testing out of the way first, I can certainly appreciate the elegance of leveling the playing field that way. Now we have.

the game Songbringer
     Sat, Dec 09 2017 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”At the end of the day, Songbringer is fun, but at the same time it is not an easy recommendation for me to make. I want to recommend it, but I feel like it needs to be with the warning that the most enjoyment will either come from repeated playthroughs to learn everything you need to know, or by researching the same information on the Internet. The latter is not ideal and the former could be appealing for some. If it is not appealing to you, then this might not be the game for you.”
