The size of the PC market has been flat to decreasing in recent years, but Intel has always found ways to maintain solid profitability in their PC division. Right now Intel’s strategy appears to be focusing on the growing 2 in 1s and PC gaming market, but there is also growth and profitability to be had with the Intel NUC mini PC lineup. Intel has recently released their 4th generation NUC code named ‘Swift Canyon’ that features the latest 6th Generation Intel Core ‘Skylake’ series of processors. The Skylake powered NUCs have been around for several months now, but we just recently got our hands on one and have been able to take it out for a test drive. The NUC Kit NUC6i5SYK / NUC6i5SYH are the mainstream Intel Core i5 powered models that we’ll be looking at closer today.

ECS Z170-Claymore motherboard
     Wed, May 04 2016 | 2:53P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"ECS did a fine job in designing the Z170-Claymore motherboard, managing to offering a compelling feature set while maintaining a very approachable price point. The board has several enthusiast-friendly features, including is aesthetic and inclusion of integrated power / reset buttons and 2-digit diagnostic LED display. The layout was not cramped for the most part, allowing easy access to ports and onboard devices. Maintaining the price point came with some trade-offs, like limiting the M.2 port speed to x2 bandwidth, but none of the trade-offs appear to affect the overall worth and utility of the board."

BIOSTAR RACING H170GT3 (LGA1151) Motherboard Review
     Mon, May 02 2016 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
BIOSTAR might not be the most recognizable motherboard brand in western markets but their pedigree for creating reliable products is worthy of praise. When compared to MSI, Gigabyte and ASUS, the company struggles to entice consumers with unique aesthetic designs. Furthermore, the BIOS and software package has been sorely lacking and in dire need of change. Thankfully, BIOSTAR have acknowledged these criticisms and decided to forge a brand new range based upon a racing theme to please petrolheads with an avid interest in enthusiast hardware. Each RACING motherboard sports a chequered flag PCB and stylish LED illumination while introducing a new BIOS layout. Clearly, this is a major departure from BIOSTAR’s previous products which evoked a fairly mundane appearance.

MSI Z170A GAMING M5 (LGA1151) Motherboard Review
     Sat, Apr 30 2016 | 9:02A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since the release of Intel’s Z170 chipset, MSI has unveiled a fantastic, feature-rich motherboard range which caters to contrasting user demands. For example, the Z170A GAMING PRO CARBON is an excellent choice for consumers wanting a stylish black colour scheme and great reliability at an affordable price point. In contrast to this, the MSI Z170A XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM Edition‘s gorgeous aesthetic design makes it one of the most innovative LGA1151 motherboards on the market. Of course, the iconic dragon styling on many MSI products have become a popular choice among the core gaming demographic. This red and black theme compliments mainstream hardware and retails at very competitive prices across various performance tiers.

Intel NUC Kit NUC5PGYH Braswell Mini PC
     Fri, Apr 29 2016 | 10:54A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Like the rest of Intel Atom systems, home theater PCs (HTPC) based on the CPU have come a long way over the last few years. The Intel NUC5PGYH offers hardware accelerated video decoding up to 4K (HDMI 1.4b output) via the quad-core Intel Braswell Pentium N3700. Now add in 7.1 multi-channel audio support, Windows 10 preinstalled, RC6 CIR (consumer infrared), 2GB DDR3L RAM, 32GB eMMC, and support for 2.5” storage expansion. This particular low power system has the makings of a serious media consumption device. And when considering that you can bring one home for $250/£220 ($280 SRP), even the price sounds too good to be true.
