TteSports Draconem RGB Cloth Edition Mousepad Review
     Tue, Aug 15 2017 | 9:03A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With a plethora of peripherals RGBfied for gamers, it was just a matter of time we get to see RGB mousepads and maybe deskpads in the future. This is the TteSports Draconem RGB cloth edition mousepad. This should be interesting because ordinarily, we wouldn’t think of having LED lights inside the mousepad to create that bleeding effect. You just have to ask the question- where would it stop??? Still, there are those who do like it and hence some companies have their own RGB mousepads. So we’ll take a look at Dracomen and see how it progresses from there onwards.

GAMDIAS Ares GKC6000 Essential Keyboard and Mouse Combo Review
     Tue, Aug 15 2017 | 9:02A | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most of the combo reviews I’ve written so far is from Cooler Master. It started with Devastator, continued with Octane and then the Masterkeys Lite L which is better out of the three. Gamdias is making a lot of gaming keyboard and mouse combo dubbed as ‘Ares’ and this particular one is the GKC6000.

Intel Core i9-7900X Processor Review
     Tue, Aug 15 2017 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we’ll be taking a closer look at the Intel Core i9-7900X Skylake-X processor, which is Intel’s High-End Desktop Platform (HEDT) 10-core, 20-thread CPU (3.3 GHz base/4.5 GHz Boost/13.75MB Cache) that has 44 PCIe lanes. The Intel Core i9-7900X sounds like a powerhouse and it better be since it commands around $1,000 in the retail market. What is crazy though, is that price is over 40% less than the Intel Core i7-6950X processor cost. Let's take a look at how this processor performs on our CPU test bench!

Logitech G413 Mechanical Backlit Gaming Keyboard Review
     Mon, Aug 14 2017 | 4:03P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Recently, I had a look at Logitech’s G Pro Mechanical Gaming Keyboard which I liked very much for the intended purpose – a lightweight, travel-friendly, no frills, high-quality gaming keyboard. No ten key number pad, no media controls, no USB passthrough, just the essentials for a full-on gaming keyboard with some RGB lighting thrown in for style. Great for gaming, a little less useful for an all-purpose keyboard. Enter the G413 Backlit Mechanical Gaming Keyboard....

Ryzen 7 1700 vs. Core i7-7820X: 8-Core Royal Rumble
     Mon, Aug 14 2017 | 4:02P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"uying an 8-core processor was a wallet ripping affair prior to the arrival of Ryzen. In absence of competition, the Intel Broadwell-E Core i7-6900K was ridiculously overpriced at $1,050. Intel has had to make changes to its HEDT platform by releasing the Core i7-7820X in response to the 8-core/16-thread Ryzen 7 1700. However, I'm not quite sure Intel understands how competition works. Whereas AMD's solution launched with an MSRP of $330 and can be readily purchased online for as little as $290 today, Intel is still asking $600 for the i7-7820X. Worse still, the cheaper Ryzen 7 1700 can be happily paired with a $100 motherboard, while the pricier Core i7-7820X requires one that costs $220+."

GAMDIAS HEBE M1 RGB Gaming Headset Review
     Mon, Aug 14 2017 | 4:01P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"By having its hardware/software implementation based on C-Media audio, we do get quite a rich set of configuration inside the HERA software for the HEBE M1 RGB headset. The Virtual 7.1 speaker surround can be used when watching various multimedia content and we were happy to see that the positioning of the speakers in the simulated room can be altered on our preference, including their individual volume. As most gaming-oriented headsets, the bass is noticeable even at the stock settings, but it is not over-the-top in order to cause headaches after prolonged use; we can adjust its intensity by using the 10-band Equalizer but we can as well enable the vibration unit for even more immersion."

Posted by: STAFF
HP suggests top speeds up to 565 MB/s for reads and 520 MB/s writes from SSD S700 PRO, which utilizes 3D NAND to deliver impressive storage density and reliability. Adding to its appeal is the cost of solid state technology, which has doubled its storage capacity per dollar from just one year ago. In this article for Benchmark Reviews, we test the HP SSD S700 PRO (SATA 2.5? 512GB model 2AP99AA#ABL) against other solid state drive competition.
