Sharkoon Elbrus 2 Gaming Chair Review
     Sun, Dec 08 2019 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to reviewing gaming chairs we always see mixed opinions from our readers. There is plenty of options already out there but more manufacturers are entering the market with their own take on the established racing-style design. In this review we take a look at Sharkoon’s mid-range entry, the Elbrus 2. Priced at £179, it has a lot of useful features for a price undercuts quite a few competitors.

Autonomous ErgoChair 2 Black Edition
     Mon, Dec 02 2019 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Autonomous ErgoChair 2 is a unique piece of furniture that tries to break the stigma of office or gaming chairs. Let's be honest, gaming chairs are mostly a copy and paste from an OEM with a different label slapped on it. However, there are a few exceptions and those exceptions are very comfortable and fairly expensive. Most "gaming" chairs …

RTX On Modern Warfare @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Nov 26 2019 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
It may come as a surprise, but Call of Duty and Modern Warfare specifically goes WAY back for LanOC. I wrote about the original Modern Warfare March 17th 2008, 11 and a half years ago and it was our first article. I’m embarrassed when I look back at my writing then, but between that multiple other COD game reviews, and MW and MW2 playing huge roles in our LAN events over the year's Call of Duty holds a special place in my heart. Of course my heart has been “newb tubed”, camped, and stabbed from across the room more times than I could ever count because of that as well. But I was still excited about checking out the new game. Nvidia who has been including Modern Warfare codes with most of their cards, notebooks, and PCs reached out and asked if I would like to check out how ray tracing looks in the latest installment and I jumped at the chance. So today I’m going to check out what the ray tracing option adds to the game and see if it's worth turning on when you play through the game.

ASUS ROG Phone II Review: A Mobile Gaming And Battery Life Beast
     Sun, Nov 24 2019 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The concept of a purpose-built gaming phone is still somewhat in its infancy, though we are starting to see generational upgrades, such as the ASUS ROG Phone II. As the name implies, this is the second generation of ASUS' gaming handset. Like the original ROG Phone released last year, the ROG Phone II combines bleeding edge hardware with gaming-centric software optimizations. ASUS sprinkles in some nifty features (like Air Triggers) and then surrounds it all with optional accessories to amp up the experience. What ASUS has essentially created is not just a gaming phone, but a smartphone gaming ecosystem...

Zombieload V2 TAA Performance Impact Benchmarks On Cascade Lake
     Sun, Nov 24 2019 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"While this week we have posted a number of benchmarks on the JCC Erratum and its CPU microcode workaround that introduces new possible performance hits, also being announced this week as part of Intel's security disclosures was "Zombieload Variant Two" as the TSX Async Abort vulnerability that received same-day Linux kernel mitigations. I've been benchmarking the TAA mitigations to the Linux kernel since the moment they hit the public Git tree and here are those initial benchmark results on an Intel Cascade Lake server."

EwinRacing Flash XL Gaming Chair
     Tue, Nov 19 2019 | 4:03P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
About two years back we did a review on a product that wasn't quite the standard fare for Bigbruin.com; a PC gaming chair. The original review was on the Flash Series ergonomic office chair from EWinRacing.com. Recently they reached out to us and asked us to take a look at another one of their chairs; the Flash XL. The XL series is specifically made for, well, let's just say larger frames. It is designed to hold up to 550 pounds and people up to 7 feet tall.

Autonomous Kinn Chair Review
     Tue, Nov 19 2019 | 2:59P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Recently we’ve reviewed a few different Autonomous products including their ErgoChair 2 and Smart Desk 2. They have recently announced their Kinn Chair and sent one over for review. They tell us that the Kinn is their best ergonomic office chair for better posture, greater range of movement and stronger well-being at and away from your work. The Kinn chair is very different from chairs we’ve reviewed in the past, it uses a TPE material that molds to your body, which is interesting to say the least. Like other Autonomous chairs there are many levers and buttons which allow you to completely dial the chair in to your liking. While this chair uses unique materials and has a different design is it actually a chair that is comfortable? Read on as we find out!"
