Counter-Strike: Global Offensive NVIDIA/AMD Benchmarks On Linux
     Fri, Oct 03 2014 | 8:34A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Several hours ago Valve finally released to the public the Linux port of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive! This has been one of the most sought after titles to come to Steam on Linux by gamers and now it`s finally out there. Of course, soon as it was made public, we added support for the game to our benchmarking software. After a very busy night, here`s the first widely available benchmarks of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive running natively on Linux. Up for this first round of testing are an assortment of AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards with the proprietary graphics drivers."

COUGAR 700M Gaming Mouse Review
     Thu, Oct 02 2014 | 6:21P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It doesn`t really matter if you`re a casual, hardcore or professional eSPORTS gamer since the moment you visit your local electronics superstore and head to the computers section chances are that you will be overwhelmed by the sheer number of available gaming mice. Of course as expected (and i consider this to be right) the eye usually falls on models designed and manufactured by the most well-known and established manufacturers out there but there are certainly exceptions to that rule especially when design and price occupy the two top spots in priority for the interested party. COUGAR became quite the popular name after releasing several high quality PC cases and power supply units which also combined performance and features but it wasn`t until just recently that they announced the release of their very first gaming peripherals and today with us we have their flagship gaming mouse model, the 700M."

Phanteks Enthoo Luxe Review
     Thu, Oct 02 2014 | 1:43P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I`m going to cover a few more things that really makes the chassis stand out. The fully modular design is unique in the sense that Phanteks has made it so instead of just some parts being removable, absolutely everything is! Every single part is held in by screws rather than rivets. I said this a million times that rivets are a step backwards and ruin case modding. Up until the Enthoo Pro, every single mod I try to perform myself became short-lived when I encountered a single rivet holding an entire bracket in place. I`m sure it takes a bit longer to assemble, but this is well worth the time and extra cost for the benefit of the consumer. Therefore I am extremely happy Phanteks has not given this up with the Enthoo Luxe."

Func HS-260 Gaming-Headset
     Thu, Oct 02 2014 | 12:18P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Func HS-260 Headset arrived Technic3D. The HS-260 has been designed with the sound and volume controls directly integrated onto the headset itself. A larger driver tends to deliver a more powerful sound, which in turn delivers a deeper bass? We will check this and more in the following Review."

Tesoro TIZONA G2N-P Elite Mechanical Gaming Numpad Review @ TestFreaks
     Thu, Oct 02 2014 | 11:10A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today I guess you could say I have part two of the Tesoro Tizona keyboard review I posted yesterday and its the Tesoro Tizona G2N-P mechanical numpad. I could have combined the review for both parts but really the numpad is sold separately so it can be used by itself if you wanted to. I thought it deserved its own separate review, a short review yes, but still a stand alone review. So read on"

Corsair Gaming K70 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review @ Legit Reviews
     Thu, Oct 02 2014 | 10:23A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It?s finally here. After three quarters since being revealed to the world, a certain lineup of keyboards with obnoxiously bright individually backlit keys that spill copious amounts of light from beneath the keycaps are now more gaudy than ever much to our delight. Multicolor RGB lighting for the Corsair Vengeance K70 and Corsair Vengeance K95 keyboards was first shown off at CES 2014 in January to much attention. For years, multicolor backlighting was a highly requested feature for mechanical keyboards. The vast majority of backlit mechanical keyboards only use a single LED color, but individually LED-lit keys have the benefit of luminous and highly visible keyboard lighting even in well-lit environments. Read on to see how the Corsair Gaming K70 RGB performs!"
