Intel Kaby Lake Core i5-7600K & Core i7-7700K Review
     Sun, Jan 15 2017 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Consumer Electronics Show, a yearly event held in Las Vegas which sets the tone of the electronics market for the following year, is one of few marquee events throughout any year for the IT industry. In the PC sector it's only surpassed by Computex, and that's mainly down to the location and PC hardware focus of the Taiwan-based event. It is therefore unsurprising that Intel would choose this venue to debut their latest new CPU architecture on the desktop PC platform: the 7th Generation Core CPU, previously known by its codename Kaby Lake.

The 10 Most Anticipated PC Games of 2017
     Sat, Jan 14 2017 | 4:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
2016 was a decent if unspectacular year for PC gaming. Several popular game franchises received high quality additions, we also saw great new IPs, but a collection of games we were excited for ended up being major disappointments. Mafia III and No Man's Sky are prime examples. Hopefully the games we're most excited to play in 2017 will meet the hype surrounding their release.

Crucial Ballistix Elite 16GB DDR4 3200Mhz Memory Kit Review
     Sat, Jan 14 2017 | 4:00P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We wrote some time ago when we first started to test DDR4 memory that it wouldn’t be long before DDR4 memory speeds would have a 1:1 speed ratio with the CPU. Well, it didn’t take long at all and we have seen these speeds for the last 12 months at least. It may be a throwback to the days of the Front Side Bus (FSB), but it was always a goal to have 1:1 CPU/memory speeds, however unachievable.

Three Intel Z270 Platform Benchmarks That You Don’t Want To Miss
     Sat, Jan 14 2017 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Hundreds of reviews went up today on the new Intel Core i7-7700K Kaby Lake processor along with dozen of Intel 200 series board reviews that were also announced today. We covered the processor launch today in our in-depth look at Core i7-7700K CPU performance and then posted up two Intel Z270 motherboard reviews on boards released by ASUS and Gigabyte. Those reviews that we posted covered much of what you’d expect, but they didn’t cover some of the most interesting benchmarks and platform highlights as they just don’t fit well in a comparison style review. Read on to see what we did!

Cooler Master MasterMouse S Review
     Fri, Jan 13 2017 | 4:01P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Something we are rather fond of, and are pleased to see is the use of Cooler Masters' advanced textured surface that not only looks great, but also deters the build-up of finger-prints while providing a stable grip for extra control. Inside we find a 32bit ARM MCU, 512KB of onboard memory, and the new 7200DPI PWM3330 optical sensor from Pixart. The MasterMouse S is accompanied by similar software that was supplied with the MasterMouse PRO L, which means we can expect an advanced level of customisation and performance controls, including the Storm Tactix feature that will expand the number of programmable buttons from 6 to 9 + 1 switch.

The Chinese smartphone manufacturer offers in its portfolio well equipped smartphones at surprisingly low prices.

The hardware equipment can not suspect that, however Apollo is ready to launch and can be booked in advance with even stronger hardware.

Toshiba CANVIO for Smartphone
     Fri, Jan 13 2017 | 11:18A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

Toshiba Electronics Europe GmbH, Personal Storage Division has announced it is now shipping the ‘CANVIO for Smartphone’, an innovative portable storage device for backing up and charging[1] Android™[2] phones in a single operation.

It is estimated that a small minority of smartphone users have backups - and just 8% backup their phones regularly (survey conducted by AVAST)[3]. The CANVIO for Smartphone backs up and charges a connected phone in one single user operation, meaning that users will be able to feel peace of mind about saving important personal data such as photos, videos, music, documents, and contacts. Backups[4] are automatically created each time the smartphone connects without the need for user intervention and after activating this function in the intuitive Android app.

As well as smartphone charging and backup, the CANVIO for Smartphone allows users to manage data via their phones using the app. At the same time the device can simplify the set-up of new smartphones by providing an easy route to transfer data from an old phone with just a few taps. For PC users, the CANVIO for Smartphone can still be used as a conventional external hard drive, backing up data via USB Type-A and USB Type-C™[5] interfaces. Finally, it can be shared by several devices, enabling multiple users to benefit from data backup and data sharing.

“Thousands of mobile phones are lost, stolen, dropped and broken every day, yet most users backup the data on their phones infrequently, if ever at all,” says Lorenzo Martinez-Palomo, General Manager of Toshiba Electronics Europe GmbH, Personal Storage Division. “Charging phones, however, is something that users have to do regularly. By providing charging and storage, the CANVIO for Smartphone provides an elegant 2-in-1 solution that gives users the peace of mind that their precious personal data will be backed up every time the phone is charged.”

The CANVIO for Smartphone features a sleek, stylish, circular white casing and has a storage capacity of 500 GB[6]. The device is supplied with an AC adapter, a USB 2.0 Micro-B cable, a USB 2.0 Type-C cable and a USB Micro-B - Type-A adapter.
