     Thu, Jan 12 2017 | 12:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
BIOSTAR's RACING P1 SFF PC isn't going to set performance records anytime soon, but it does offer a good amount considering its price."

Dell XPS 27 7760 All-In-One PC Review: 4K IPS Touch And Wired For Sound
     Tue, Jan 10 2017 | 4:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, Dell is taking the redesign of their XPS product line another model deeper with the unveiling of one of its first new products out of the gate for 2017, the newly redesigned Dell XPS 27 All-in-One desktop PC. The all new Dell XPS 27 7760 has a radically new look that draws at least one design cue from its XPS notebook siblings, specifically with respect to display bezel, or the lack thereof. However, its new, svelte window on the world might not be the most standout new feature of the 2017 Dell XPS 27. Under that display, Dell actually expanded things mechanically to make room for a 10 speaker sound system, designed by some rather talented audio engineers, that takes this desktop PC's audio reproduction and output capabilities to a whole new level.

Gigabyte BRIX Gaming UHD Review With Teardown
     Mon, Jan 09 2017 | 9:03A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Gigabyte BRIX Gaming UHD is an exciting small form factor PC prospect, packing a surprising amount of muscle into a tiny frame. This little flyweight may not sound too beastly with its GeForce GTX 950, but Gigabyte reckons it is more than capable of streaming 4K UHD media and taking a few swings at 1080p gaming with good image quality. Its 4.3-inch square footprint should help it blend into many entertainment centers or find a home on a dorm room desk for work, play, business or pleasure. Most ultra small form-factor computers, by comparison, rely on integrated graphics to due to thermal constraints. Don’t get us wrong, integrated graphics solutions from Intel and AMD have come a long ways, but there is still no substitution for a discrete GPU for respectable gaming performance in current gen titles...

Cybertron CLX Ra System Review
     Mon, Jan 09 2017 | 9:01A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The CLX Ra is Cybertron's biggest and baddest (in a good way) Egyptian-themed, CLX full tower gaming system. Named after the Egyptian sun god, the Ra starts out at $1,400 for a modest configuration, though mortals with a heftier budget can summon exponentially more power. The configuration Cybertron sent us is a top-shelf build that showcases what the company can do when tossing just north of $5,500 at a setup, and it's impressive. Check any notion of bang-for-buck before reading further, that isn't what this system is about. This is an exercise in excess for those who are in a position to splurge, and not just on a powerful PC but a showpiece system...

Intel Compute Stick Core m3 Review: Skylake On A Thumbstick
     Wed, Dec 21 2016 | 12:02P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Intel's first generation Compute Stick turned quite a few heads, including ours, as it was a remarkable thing to consider that a fully functioning PC could be crammed onto a device roughly the size of a bloated USB flash drive. It wasn't especially powerful—Intel pairing an Atom processor based on its Bay Trail-T platform with just 2GB of single-channel RAM and 32GB of onboard storage—but for $149 with Windows pre-installed it was an intriguing device... The latest version Intel Compute Stick (STK2m3W64CC) ups the ante in the pocket-sized PC product line significantly by swinging a Skylake-based Core m3-6Y30 processor and 4GB of RAM in a dual-channel configuration at general purpose computing tasks...

SeeMeCNC Rostock MAX v3 @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Dec 20 2016 | 4:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Most of you know the saying “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime”. Well when it comes to trinkets and other cool stuff, 3d printers are the same. You Can buy small items or you can print your own cool stuff. Early this year I did just that. I covered SeeMeCNC’s new at the time Eris and even well past my coverage I had one and then later two printers running all of the time in the office. I was having a blast but I really needed to go BIGGER. Well, a few months ago they sent over their new v3 model of their Rostock MAX, the big guy. With vacation and everything it took me a little while to get going, but I have been running the printer for a long time now and it’s about time I sit down and tell everyone about my experience with SeeMeCNC’s new printer. You might want to get comfortable, this might be a long one.

Acer Swift 7 Review
     Thu, Dec 15 2016 | 10:37P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Acer has consistently expanded and refined its mobile product offerings, to include everything from affordable mainstream notebooks, to sleek ultrabooks that use premium materials. The veteran PC maker has developed a sense of style and is putting real effort into creating thin, functional laptops, that also happen to look good. The Swift 7 is one of the thinnest laptops on the market, and it has some interesting hardware squeezed inside, too. But going ultra-thin often results with performance or functionality compromises, so we were taken aback that Acer dubbed its thinnest laptop “Swift.” We brought one in to see just how fast (and how fun) this Kaby Lake-powered laptop really is...

Inkubus 300µ mITX HTPC Personal Cube Chassis Review
     Sun, Dec 11 2016 | 9:02A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have had a couple of unusual components at Hardwareslave but this one takes first place for unique. The Inkubus 300µ, a handmade, wooden mITX chassis designed to be the finishing touch in a high-end AV room, digital living room or even a sleek modern office environment, is not normally a chassis you can buy.

Posted by: STAFF
A few months ago, we reviewed the Dream Machines DM1 PRO, and Dream Machines is now back with the DM1 PRO S. This version has an updated sensor, has been slimmed down to be even lighter, and has a rather nice glossy finish. Improvements, which could be a game changer.

The Gigabyte Brix Gaming UDH is a vertically oriented gaming system that features an Intel Core i7 ‘Skylake’ processor and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 graphics card with pricing starting at $999. Gigabyte has two Brix Gaming UHD models; GB-BNi5HG4-950 with an Intel Core i5-5300HQ processor and then there is the GB-BNi7HG4-950 with the more powerful Intel Core i7-6700HQ processor.

Fierce PC BlackFire Apex Review

Posted by: STAFF
Under our watchful eye today is the Blackfire Apex which is a low-to-mid range computer system based around Skylake architecture. So, at the heart of Apex is the Intel Core i5-6500, along with 16GB DDR4 and the AMD RX 470.

Cyberpower Infinity X55 VX System Review
     Sun, Dec 04 2016 | 9:03A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Given the psychological effect of being priced under £1000, Cyberpower hopes their Infinity X55 VX will prove an enticing deal as we head towards Christmas. Packing a Core i5 and GTX 1060 6GB, it has the makings of a decent gaming PC. However, before coming to any conclusions we run the Infinity X55 VX through our intensive benchmarking suite, including some of the most demanding games you can play.

Freshtech Solutions Aerocool DS230 GTX 1050 Ti Gaming PC Review
     Mon, Nov 21 2016 | 12:08P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Since the GTX 1080’s release, we’ve been inundated with systems utilising this astounding piece of graphics hardware. Even though the performance is staggering, the asking price in the UK remains extremely high, especially for custom models with a substantial factory overclock. Unfortunately. the GTX 1080 can cost more than an entire budget gaming system and recent price hikes have cemented the card’s position as a niche product. The overwhelming majority of people cannot justify spending so money on the GTX 1080 and opt for a less powerful solution. In the past, cheap graphics cards have struggled to provide an enjoyable gaming experience due to the consistent stutter, and jarring frame dips. Thankfully, the situation has improved and GPUs like the RX 460 and the GTX 1050Ti can cope with modern games at modest settings.

Intel Kaby Lake Linux Testing With MSI's Cubi 2 Mini PC
     Tue, Nov 15 2016 | 4:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Kaby Lake mobile processors began shipping last month and while we've seen a number of laptop designs using these processors that succeed Skylake, so far the Intel NUCs haven't surfaced nor many other SFF PCs making use of the next-generation hardware. That changed last week with MSI's Cubi 2 powered by Kaby Lake CPUs beginning to ship. I've been testing an MSI Cubi 2 with Core i5 Kaby Lake processor under Ubuntu Linux and so far the experience has been pleasant. In this article are our first Kaby Lake Linux benchmarks."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
