Eve V Review: A Crowdfunded Surface Pro Competitor
     Thu, Dec 07 2017 | 4:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
For a first-generation product, the Eve V is remarkably solid. It's especially impressive when you consider its direct competition - the Surface Pro - is well entrenched in the Windows tablet market and known to be an excellent option. From my experience with the Eve V so far, it's not just a great competitor to the Surface Pro: it is a better option in several ways.

Dell XPS 13 (2017) With Kaby Lake R Review
     Sat, Nov 11 2017 | 12:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell has not done much to tweak the physical design of its XPS 13 laptop over the past couple years, though it's not out of laziness or complacency. The past few models have exemplified excellence in engineering, with the size and weight of the XPS 13 belying what lays in wait when you crack open the lid. Its InfinityEdge display all but eliminates the bezel and delivers a larger-than-expected viewing area based on the laptop's overall dimensions, and the hardware powering it has, for the most part, been cutting edge.

Dell Inspiron 27 7000 All-In-One Review
     Fri, Nov 10 2017 | 1:42P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Dell has continued to push the recent design innovations of its premium XPS family further down its product stack, in an effort to enhance its mainstream consumer products as well. When we reviewed Dell’s XPS 27 7760 All-in-One desktop PC earlier this year, we were impressed with its performance, features, and design aesthetic, including its impressive sound system. Continuing that effort to marry both form and function, we received the new Dell Inspiron 27 7000 All-in-One desktop for review. It turns out this system was the winner of a 2017 COMPUTEX Design and Innovation Award, but it has been updated since then. The model we have in for testing happens to be powered by something new and innovative from AMD under its hood...

CORSAIR Commander PRO Build Review
     Mon, Oct 30 2017 | 6:59P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The CORSAIR Commander PRO controller makes your live easier if you want to connect lots of compatible RGB fans inside the case, LED strips, but also control the LED light show in detail. The device permits monitoring of system temperatures from the included thermistors, but also connect other LINK-compatible hardware to the dual USB 2.0 headers. It measures 133mm x 69mm x 15.5mm so its slim form factor allows installation in most computer cases."

Dell XPS Tower Special Edition Review
     Mon, Oct 30 2017 | 9:03A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Anyone who is into street racing knows never to assume what the other driver is rocking underneath the hood. Sure, that family sedan may look like it would get throttled by a Mustang or Camaro, but if it's sporting a souped up engine inside and maybe even a shot of NOS, it will burn rubber with the best of them. Likewise, Dell's updated XPS Tower Special Edition desktop system rolls to the line with a subdued style that seemingly belies what lays inside its compact chassis. Make no mistake, the XPS Tower SE is not a run-of-the-mill OEM system. It has some unique features that we will get to shortly, but more importantly, it is able to keep pace with sportier looking desktops...

MSI Releases its Small Form Factor Vortex G25 Gaming Desktop
     Thu, Oct 12 2017 | 1:26A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

MSI, a world leader in gaming hardware, today announces the availability of the Vortex G25 gaming desktop. First announced at Computex Taipei 2017, the Vortex G25 features an 8th generation i7 processor and up to a GTX 1070 graphics card in a 2.5-liter chassis.

www.pcstats.com

The Vortex G25 adopts the latest Intel 8th Generation Core processor based on the new Z370 platform. The Core i7-8700 processor features six cores for 12-thread computing and can be overclocked from 3.2GHz to 4.3GHz (Multi-Core). The Vortex also includes MSI’s Cooler Boost Titan technology which consists of dual blade fans with eight heatpipes to ensure proper cooling of the CPU and GPU, ultimately resulting in a 30% performance gain over the last generation of processors.

The Vortex G25 was designed for portable and convenient VR experiences. The front panel has a power jack to power VR headsets, an HDMI port and two USB 3.0 ports. MSI’s Nahimic VR software optimizes performance and virtual surround sound to make virtual reality even more immersive.

Traditionally, desktop computers are imposing and bulky, but the Vortex manages to put desktop power into a compact and aesthetically appealing body. The Vortex is also easily upgradeable. It’s equipped with pull-ring slotted screws, providing an easy way to remove the top cover for upgrades. The dual NVMe M.2 SSD by PCIe Gen3 / SATA-SSD Combo slots, 2.5” hard drive and dual DDR4-2400 slots are all upgradeable.

Shuttle Computer Group Upgrades Slim XPC
     Thu, Oct 12 2017 | 1:24A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

Shuttle Computer Group, Inc., one of the world’s leading designers of small form computers, announces its new XPC rugged, slim computers, the DH270 and XH270 that use the latest H270 chipset from Intel®. Designed for multi-screen video walls and high-resolution signage application, the one-liter Shuttle XPC DH270 and three-liter XH270 slim PCs support LGA 1151 Intel®6th/7th generation Core™ i 65W (Kaby Lake) processors.

With integrated Intel HD graphics, these new computers provide 4K/UHD video playback on up to three screens, with DDR4-2133/2400 memory as well as Intel® Optane™ technology which improves processing and data transfer speed and agility, up to 28 percent faster computing for action-packed, attention-grabbing performance.

“Our new DH270 and XH270 slim computers are perfect for triple display signage like in fast food restaurants, malls, and small business applications,” said Robert Garcia, channel manager, Shuttle Computer Group.

The DH270 and XH270 are designed with Shuttle’s exclusive heat-pipe cooling module with smart fan design, which allows for constant air circulation between the inside and outside of the machine resulting in greater stability for reliable, long-term, 24/7 operation.

With a slim 43mm height and compact size, the DH270 and XH270 have a VESA mount and use significantly fewer cables. They also have no daughter board, which makes assembly easy, and use industrial capacitors to meet the environmental operation demands of commercial applications.
