XTracPads Carbonic Ripper Ripper XXL Review
     Thu, Mar 05 2015 | 10:36A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
From a casual gamer perspective, I am sure someone who can game competitively will likely notice a greater improvement than I. Personally, I have had trouble with mouse pads that were too hard, not stiff, but solid cutouts of plastic (I don`t even know if they are made anymore really). I have also had issues with mouse pads that accumulate a bunch of gross after a bit of use. I can live with poor or cheap mouse pads, but now that I have had a taste of the other side I really don`t want to anymore. I would easily pay $22 at this point to use some of such high quality as the XTracGears. No, I would not likely purchase the monster RipperXXL (that is well outside of my needs), but I see no problem with the others. I do wish they had more interesting designs, but if wishes were fishes, my computer would continuously evolve into the highest end gaming machine available. There are no real downsides to getting an XTracGear gaming mouse pad and at least a couple upsides, so go get one."

Posted by: STAFF
Combining the market’s current bang-for-the-buck kings, Chillblast builds its Fusion Barbarian gaming system around the Devil’s Canyon Core i5 4690K processor and Gigabyte’s G1 Gaming GTX 970 graphics card.

How does the Chillblast Fusion Barbarian gaming system perform outside of its specification sheet?

Mantle and DirectX 12 flaunts
     Tue, Mar 03 2015 | 2:04P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This is what Mantle and DirectX 12 flaunts: lots of draw calls for lots of objects on scene. It also allows reduced CPU usage as each thread is easier, and multiple cores can pitch in, all of which leads to less power consumption (especially useful for mobile apps that draw a lot of simple objects). Vulkan does all of this. Creating “Command Buffers” can be done on multiple threads while another thread assembles and manages a queue of commands to push to the GPU."

EVGA TORQ X5 Gaming Mouse Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Mar 03 2015 | 9:29A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
EVGA is a brand that we typically know for graphics card and motherboards, but they actually make quite a lot of other products. One of those products happen to be gaming mice. Today we will be looking at their TORQ X5 gaming mouse which features a 6400 DPI optical sensor, OMRON switches, 8 programmable buttons and an ambidextrous design. Will this be the perfect mouse to add to your gaming arsenal? Will this make EVGA a company we think about when it comes to gaming? Read on as we find out!"

Dying Light Review
     Sun, Mar 01 2015 | 9:29A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Should we try to save Harran or let the infestation go unabated? I have a hard time answering that, as my own feeling is to fail to recommend Dying Light. Please understand that failing to recommend a game does not mean it is bad. In this case I just do not feel it is that strong a title. The graphics are good, but not perfect, and the story is completely predictable and unoriginal. The gameplay is fun, but it is also fairly unremarkable. Combat works and works well, but there is nothing too special to it, and while free-running is a fun way to cross a city and avoid enemies, it has issues that do break that experience. Sometimes a game will have that one thing that makes it stand out from the rest, like a superb story, amazingly solid gameplay, or impressive graphics that make your eyes smile. More often it is a combination of story, gameplay, and graphics that makes a game stand out. In the case of Dying Light, none of these components stand out, at least for me, and so neither do their combination. That does not make the game bad, and indeed I believe it is a good game and I enjoyed playing. It just does not offer enough for me to recommend it."

Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell
     Thu, Feb 26 2015 | 12:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Should we go to Hell to rescue the Boss of the Saints, or leave the devil his due? I believe it is worth jumping in, but only if you are already a fan of the franchise. If you are (and I admit that I am) you will find a fun experience that still does a lot right, even if it is not doing as much as the other games. If you are not a Saints Row fan, then this may not be a game for you. You will be without context for a lot of what is going on and it really does feel like a standalone DLC. Considering it only costs as much as some season passes (which in some cases offer less content, time-wise) that is a fair description. The graphics are nothing new, the story is weak but entertaining, and the gameplay does what it does well, but does not necessarily have as much content as some would like. Overall, Gat Out of Hell offers a fun experience, but it just might not be for everyone.”

Func MS-2 Gaming Mouse Review
     Wed, Feb 25 2015 | 12:00P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
“We’ve recently seen a few new products Func, a company that has been making a push further into the gaming peripheral market. The lastest is the MS-2 gaming mouse, with premium features but an affordable price tag. However, the MS-2 sits right in the midst of a highly competitive mouse market dominated by several very popular products, backed by industry stalwarts that have ruled the roost for quite some time. That may change, however, as the MS-2 looks to battle the competition with bold claims of better features and solid ergonomics. Can the Func MS-2 capture our attention and live up to expectations? Let’s find out.”

AKRACING Premium Gaming Chair (AK-7002-CS) Review
     Mon, Feb 23 2015 | 9:29A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
First thing first, this chair is designed to appear AND feel like a racing chair. If you`ve never sat in a racing type seat before, you should know their design and build isn`t meant to be overly soft. This chair is quite a bit stiffer than your common squishy office chair and is far from an executive style chair. It`s not stiff and hard like a wooden dining room chair, but it might take you a bit to get used to if you`ve never sat in something like it before. The chair does have tilt, you can lean back as the base of the chair is much like any other office chair with tilt and up/down motion. I will say, it was difficult to get your tilt, even on the softest setting. It took quite a bit of force to relax and lean back. However, the back of the seat also reclines like an actual car seat. It has many possibilities in recline position, so while you might not be able to push back with your feet, the seat can be reclined into quite a comfortable position. You can sit as straight up as you like as well as lie darn near flat if you so desire."

CyberpowerPC SYBER GAMING VAPOR A @ Bjorn3d.com
     Wed, Feb 18 2015 | 12:46P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today we get hands on with the SYBER Gaming VAPOR A gaming console PC which is the entry-level version bearing a AMD Athlon x4 840 and a R9 270 GPU coming in at a street price of $599.99 at the time of writing and while this is a bit above what you would pay for a Xbox One or a PS4 we do think the depth of hardware and capability could easily take up for that. Much like what you would find from off the shelf PCs Cyberpowers SYBER VAPOR line is designed from the ground up to plug-in and go launching directly into the Steam Big Picture mode so that you can virtually control the unit from the included Logitech F710 Gamepad, but it does have a micro keyboard with integrated touchpad should you want to navigate windows itself."

Video Review: Alienware Area 51 (2015) Gaming PC, An Equalateral Beast
     Tue, Feb 17 2015 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Alienware's new Area 51 gaming desktop PC arrived late last year and it certainly turned heads, including ours, due to its somewhat radical design. Sure, we've seen some wild chassis designs out of Dell's Alienware gaming PC division in the past, but their new, redesigned Area 51 machine really broke the mold. In fact, if you're stuck on the old gray or black box design of most legacy systems, the "Triad" chassis of the new Area 51 may be too much of a departure for you to wrap your head around...

Cougar 600M Gaming Mouse Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Feb 16 2015 | 12:46P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cougar wants to be a big player in the gaming and eSports arena. We have seen many companies make the transition or great sub-brands to do so. We were very impressed with Cougars flagship gaming keyboard the 700K and now we are going to be taking a look at their 600M gaming mouse. The 600M sits in the middle of their mice offerings with the 700M above and the 200M below. It packs some great features like OMRON switches, an ANDS-9800 laser sensor, on-board memory to keep your profiles wherever you go, 8 programmable buttons, a soft-touch feel, programmable lighting and so much more! Can the 600M impress us as much as Cougars 700K keyboard did? Lets jump in and see!"

COUGAR 600K Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
     Sun, Feb 15 2015 | 12:46P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
All in all, the COUGAR 600K is quite a nice looking keyboard. It has improved my thoughts on COUGAR as a brand in its entirety. A while back, I saw COUGAR as a cheap (though expensive) peripheral maker. That thought has been whipped away with the last few products I`ve gotten my hands on. The quality is much more on par with the market, and with the 600K I think I can safely say I could beat my way through zombies. COUGAR has officially earned its name off my blacklist for items."

Cougar 600K Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Wed, Feb 11 2015 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Here at Benchmark Reviews we have seen a lot of Cougar products come through as of late. Today we are proud to review something a little different, the Cougar 600K mechanical keyboard featuring Cherry MX Blue switches. There are quite a few things that make this keyboard unique and set it apart from it’s previous flagship keyboard, the Cougar 700K. The feature set alone from the 600K create a special synergy for typing purists that not only puts it in a class of its own, but definitely needs further examination.
