Tiny Steam machine with AMD guts
     Mon, Jan 13 2014 | 1:23P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
There was one system missing from that big list of Steam machines Valve published last week. As it turns out, Maingear is prepping a version of Gigabyte's Brix Pro small-form-factor PC with AMD hardware under the hood. Scott got a (literally) hands-on look at it during CES.

SteelSeries Rival @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Jan 10 2014 | 4:58P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When it comes to mice, SteelSeries over the past few years has basically stuck with a single design that they have used on multiple mice. We first saw it with the Xai and later the Sensei but they have also used it on various branded mice and a smaller version on the Kinzu as well. When SteelSeries announced that they were bringing out a new mouse design with the Rival I was very interested, but also a little worried about messing with a good thing. After a short wait, we finally have the Rival in hand and can put it through its paces and see how the new design performs."

iBUYPOWER SBX Steam machine - CES2014
     Tue, Jan 07 2014 | 4:15P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

There are very few instances where one product category can leap frog over to another and make a profound impact. Today, iBUYPOWER, together with Valve, is making one such leap.

Introducing the iBUYPOWER SBX Steam machine, anultra-simplified system designed to do one thing: entertain. Melding together the simplicity of a traditional game console, but harnessing power usually available to only high-end desktop PCs, iBUYPOWER is able to usher in both performance and content unheard of in the living room space.

For more information, please see http://www.ibuypower.com/Product/SBX

Designed in Los Angeles, iBUYPOWER labored to create a highly tuned and optimized system that would deliver a sustainable 60 frames-per second gaming experience at true high-definition resolutions. Powered by multi-core processors in both AMD and Intel flavors and paired with the latest in graphics technology from AMD, customers will be able to jump a full generation ahead of the latest game consoles.

"What we really wanted to do was make an impact in the living room. We wanted to really show the world that the power of desktop gaming machine can be experienced in the living room in a totally seamless way," said Darren Su, Co-founder and VP of iBUYPOWER. "All preconceptions of what entertainment in the living room should and can be, are out the door."

Customers can expect an out-of-box experience unlike any other. Every iBUYPOWER SBX comes with a Steam Controller so customers can jump into the action immediately. All aspects of design and hardware are optimized for a gaming experience on Steam OS that sheds away legacy PC overhead. Make no mistake about it; this is not a PC.

iBUYPOWER'sSteambox will be available later in 2014 and will ship with a Steam controller for $499 and will be available in matte black and white.

FUNC KB-460 Mechanical Keyboard Review @ HardwareHeaven.com
     Tue, Dec 31 2013 | 10:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just over a year ago Func made a second, first impression on the gaming market with the launch of their Surface 1030XL mouse pad. It was a high quality product and they followed that up with the MS-3 gaming mouse in February of this year. There is of course an obvious progression from the launch of a pad then mouse and today we have the result of that on our test bench. The KB-460 is a mechanical keyboard with various functions important to gamers, so let`s take a look..."

ROCCAT Ryos MK Glow Illuminated Gaming Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Mon, Dec 30 2013 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Ryos MK Glow Illuminated Mechanical Gaming from ROCCAT was awesome, though it took me till the very end to finally figure that out. I liked nearly every aspect of this keyboard, from the Black key switches, to the blue color scheme, to the slightly overly complicated software. For pure gaming, this keyboard is sublime. The possibilities for customization are awe inspiring. Certain users will dislike the small number of standalone macros, but for those who are adventurous enough, there are more macros than ever before. It does require some extra space because of the solid, integrated wrist rest and extra mysterious width, but that is a total afterthought compared to making games play almost any way you want. Having every key light up and having your very own overly dramatic man voice tell you how to quick record keys is just a bonus."

Func KB-460 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Mon, Dec 30 2013 | 10:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The bottom line is that the Func KB-460 is a very good looking keyboard aesthetically and has enough features to make it flexible. At $119.95 the price is pretty high, but not out of reason. The KB-460 feels extremely well made. Almost like it could get in a fight with a cinder block and walk away. I find it hard to believe that this is the first keyboard ever from Func, simply because of the quality and ease of use. But, it is the very first for the company, and it delivers a solid performance worthy of its price range and competition."

Func KB-460 Gaming Keyboard

While we don`t generally review keyboards and other gaming peripherals at Phoronix, occasionally such a product will come along that is worth checking out in close detail. One of these products is the Func KB-460, a new high-end gaming keyboard. The Func KB-460 looks great, but will it work on Linux and be worth the nearly $120 USD price tag?"

Func KB-460 Gaming Keyboard @ techPowerUp

Func`s brand new KB-460 gaming keyboard gets put to the test. The keyboard features Cherry MX switches, macro capability and plenty more game oriented features. Despite being a hardcore gaming keyboard it also includes convenient features such as USB hub and wrist rest."
