EWin Champion Series Ergonomic Computer Gaming Chair
     Tue, Jan 09 2018 | 6:47P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”So, here it goes: I love it! To me, it is very comfortable, very accommodating, and certainly makes my gaming experience and even plain old web browsing more pleasant. Some of my excitement may come from the fact that my old chair was a low-end office chair that I had actually recovered a couple of times to extend its life. So going from that to the EWin Champion chair is like going from a skateboard to a Cadillac. Well, maybe not that drastic, but my point is that this chair definitely delivers the comfort. Pull the lever, lean back to the full recline position, and in a few minutes, it's lights out for me. The different accent colors that are available also allow for some variety.”

NVIDIA Gaming Performance Minimally Impacted By KPTI Patches
     Fri, Jan 05 2018 | 1:07P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Earlier this week when news was still emerging on the "Intel CPU bug" now known as Spectre and Meltdown I ran some Radeon gaming tests with the preliminary Linux kernel patches providing Kernel Page Table Isolation (KPTI) support. Contrary to the hysteria, the gaming performance was minimally impacted with those open-source Radeon driver tests while today are some tests using the latest NVIDIA driver paired with a KPTI-enabled kernel."

Serious Statistics Pt. 2: The Sync Encounter
     Thu, Dec 28 2017 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”I am not completely sure if a conclusion is really necessary for this article, but why not? As is perhaps not surprising, playing in a Borderless window under DirectX 11 results in the highest frame latency, because of omnipresent Desktop Window Manager's double buffering. When playing in Fullscreen or under Vulkan, as far as PresentMon/OCAT could tell only V-Sync of the in-game options actually introduced any latency. Of the driver-side options, it was again only the basic v-sync option to add latency, according to PresentMon/OCAT, with the Fast Sync, Enhanced Sync, and Frame Rate Target Control all appearing to send frames out just as quickly as they were available to send.”

Nitro Concepts S300 Gaming Chair Review
     Thu, Dec 28 2017 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Every since being introduced to my first gaming chair earlier this year I feel that it is a necessity every serious gamer, or person who plans on sitting in front of computer screen for a long period of time should invest in. We spend quite a lot of money on the components inside of our PCs, but we really should also think about what is outside and what we are sitting on for very long periods of time. Today we will be checking out the S300 gaming chair from Nitro Concepts, they tell us it the best chair they’ve ever built. Let’s take it for a spin and see how it compares to the other gaming chair’s we’ve reviewed over the past year."

SteamVR On Linux Is Still In Frustratingly Rough Shape
     Wed, Dec 27 2017 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If you are exclusively using Linux for gaming, hopefully you aren't hoping for an HTC Vive this Christmas as the SteamVR support on Linux still leaves a lot to be desired. At the start of the year Valve finally put out their first SteamVR developer build for Linux and now nearly one year later, it still feels like a very rough beta."

OPSEAT Master Series Gaming Chair Review
     Tue, Dec 19 2017 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Ah the office chair, coffee stained, broken arms, and worn out padding, this often overlooked piece of furniture is the unsung hero of all night raids and game releases. It is the foundation for overclocking and coding sessions alike. Why then do we focus so much of our attention and budget on the electronic bits that reside within our rigs and so little on the only item that can bring us comfort? If you’re reading this you have probably achieved a level of enlightenment that has allowed you to focus beyond the screen you are staring at. Welcome to the land of physical comfort! There are a plethora of options when it comes to gluteal support. From worn out second hand items scored at the thrift store to multi thousand dollar executive thrones, the range is wide. One of the more recent trends is the racing seat styled gaming chair. No doubt you’ve seen these at all professional gaming tournaments and advertised everywhere gaming things live. Here at ThinkComputers we’ve covered a nice pair of these already, today we are adding the OPSEAT Master Series chair to our stable. Follow along as we find out of this is the right chair for your nerdy needs!"

mechanical keyboard enthusiasts
     Tue, Dec 19 2017 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Available in both black and white, the Corsair Gaming PBT Keycap set is a compelling option for those looking to enter the rabbit hole that is custom mechanical keyboard keycaps. Personally, I prefer the feel of PBT keycaps compared to the normal ABS kind. At $50, the Corsair PBT keycap is a bit steep compared to some of the more generic options available, but they are well made and are worth a look!"

Roccat Kone AIMO Gaming Mouse with Roccat
     Wed, Dec 13 2017 | 4:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In 2007 the original Roccat Kone mouse was released as Roccats’s first ever product. 10 years later we take a look at the Roccat Kone AIMO which features the AIMO intelligent lighting system, 12000dpi owl-eye optical sensor and tri-button thumb zone. The Roccat Kone is available in 3 different colours – black, grey and white – but is it worth the £69.99 asking price?

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus
     Mon, Dec 11 2017 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
”The graphics are good with some effects really standing out as impressive to me while performance is second-to-none for games in their launch or near-launch state. The story is weak with a number of missed opportunities, in-game spoiled twists, and a failure to connect me to the game world and motivating me to move forward. The gameplay is fun but has missed opportunities and fails to motivate me to keep playing to achieve game-changing weapons and upgrades.”

PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
