The Spectre is a thing of beauty. At 10.4mm, it's the world's thinnest laptop. It's also very light for a 13-inch device, at just 2.45lbs, making it a perfect companion for the businessman on the go. But the design... it's truly unlike any Windows laptop I've seen before, thanks to a breathtaking hinge and use of premium materials.

BIOSTAR J3160MD Motherboard Review
     Tue, Jul 19 2016 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The new Braswell stepping comes with a tad higher CPU Burst frequency, the same amount of cache and HD 400 graphics from Intel; in the performed results, we can see it trading punches with the Celeron N3150 and the performance gain is quite minimal. With the J3160MD board, the manufacturer proposes a fanless design, which seems to perform well thanks to the large heatsink and low TDP of the Intel SoC. Enhancements to the build can be always performed thanks to the PCI-E x16 and dual PCI-E x1 slots, for installing extra storage and use the product as an entry-level NAS, but also for installation of a low-end to mainstream video card and a standalone soundcard in order to transform the setup into a light gaming machine or media center."

Corsair Neutron XTi 480GB SSD Review
     Sat, Jul 16 2016 | 4:01P | Hard Drives | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"For the Neutron XTi, Corsair has picked up a controller we have seen with other low-cost TLC SSDs manufactured by PHISON, paired it with quite a bit of DDR3 RAM cache (1GB) and has also used Toshiba 15nm MLC NAND Flash in order to obtain sustained performance, no matter the file sizes we are transferring to it."

PNY GTX 950 2GB and GTX 960 4GB XLR8 OC Gaming Review
     Sat, Jul 16 2016 | 4:00P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If the persistent rumours are anything to go by, Nvidia will imminently extend Pascal to its mid-range with the launch of a GTX 1060. This means that, on paper at least, the GTX 960 will be superseded, though there is yet no inclination as to the fate of the GTX 950. Even with the imminent arrival of the GTX 1060 the GTX 960 has significant shelf-life remaining. If rumours are anywhere close to accurate, a price of around £250/$250 for the GTX 1060 means the GTX 960 is still an attractive and viable option starting at £160/$180, this price will likely only become cheaper as retailers seek to clear existing stock.

Posted by: STAFF
Just like the Neutron XT, the XTi uses the Phison PS3110 S10 controller but this time it is paired with Toshiba 15nm MLC NAND. The XT series used 19nm NAND.

32GB Crucial Ballistix Sport LT DDR4 Memory Review
     Sat, Jul 16 2016 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Prior to the release of Intel’s LGA1151 chipset, consumers could only access the benefits of DDR4 memory including lower voltages and higher frequencies by entering into the very expensive X99 platform. Thankfully, Skylake dramatically changed the status quo and it’s now possible to acquire high capacity memory kits at affordable prices. While there are DIMMs on the market with speeds beyond 3200MHz, it’s not usually sensible from a price to performance perspective. Therefore, it’s advisable for mainstream users to opt for modules between 2400MHz-3000MHz.
