MSI’s Clutch GM70 & GM60 Mice
     Sun, Nov 12 2017 | 4:03P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This may start to sound like a broken record at this point, but my major and only complaint is MSI's Gaming Center software. Before I get to that, I think I should point out that MSI never states what software to download in the included booklet. It just states to go to MSI's website, which isn't very helpful in my opinion. It may seem like a nick picky thing to talk about, but a lot of people are not patient enough to sift through a website for an unknown program. This can be an easy fix by just including what software is needed, so I'll stop myself here and let MSI sort this out for future production runs. Back to the actual software. I will say that when it is working, I had a very enjoyable experience with it. However, it often reverted back to defaults when a mouse was unplugged or the computer was restarted. MSI does not include any sort of user guide or ReadMe, which leaves the user confused about what each function does. You, as an owner of one of these mice, will no doubt have to Google things to figure out how these settings play a role in the bigger picture. It is very easy to click on something or move a slider and not know it. Even worse, there is no default button (other than different profiles), which does not help the situation. Having played with all the settings, I found myself using different profiles and taking pictures to note what is default so I could compare the settings I just changed.”

Intel Chief Architect
     Sun, Nov 12 2017 | 12:02P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Today Intel announced that Raja is now Intel Chief Architect and Senior VP of the newly formed Core and Visual Computing Group. This is a huge sea change for Intel. Since introducing the somewhat competitive and feature-rich i740 “Starfighter” graphics part in the late 90s, Intel relegated graphics to the chipset level and eventually integrated into the CPU. Intel has seemingly done “just enough” to keep their integrated graphics performance at a reasonable level while staying relevant with the latest DirectX capabilities. Intel previously attempted to get into the higher level of graphics technology with their Larabee initiative, but it turned out to be too cumbersome an implementation to compete with AMD and NVIDIA."

Posted by: STAFF
Intel’s X299 platform is an appealing choice to consumers requiring high core count CPUs and plentiful system memory. Yet an X299 system build can get seriously expensive with the motherboard comprising a large share of that expense. MSI’s X299 SLI Plus motherboard proves that getting onto X299 needn’t be as expensive as you might think.

Corsair Carbide Spec-04 Tempered Glass Review
     Sat, Nov 11 2017 | 4:02P | Chipset | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Corsair’s Carbide series is renowned for its variety, with cases to match many a system build. At the budget end, one of its more attractive products is the Spec-04; a reassuring reminder that for around £60 both engaging design and a side-panel window are attainable. Corsair has spotted an opportunity for the Spec-04 though, choosing to augment it to fit a current trend. As the name suggests, the Carbide Spec-04 Tempered Glass switches out the perspex. In its place is a full glass side panel offering an unimpaired internal view.
