Cherry Announces Ground Breaking Mechanical Keyboard @ ThinkComputers.org
     Mon, Jan 12 2015 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Building on the success of their wildly popular MX switches, Cherry has developed their own house branded MX red switch equipped board, the MX Board 6.0. Using proprietary tech they have increased the response time of the keyboard to 1 ms. This speed actually hits the full limit of USB 3.0 giving you the fastest possible key response. In addition, they have switched to an analog system eliminating key ghosting, and 100% N key roll over. These features are part of what Cherry is calling RealKey Technology. The board itself is aimed at professional typists, programmers, and those with extreme performance needs."

AKRacing Gaming Chair Review @ ocaholic

During the last few years we`ve seen an exponential growth when it comes to gaming peripherals market, and a few companies are focusing on comfortable and high quality chairs for those who spend many hours gaming. Enjoy this new review!"

CM Storm Rapid-i Gaming Mechanical Keyboard Review
     Sun, Jan 11 2015 | 12:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
CM Storm Rapid-i mechanical gaming keyboard is something that I wish their CM Storm Quickfire TK was- a small keyboard with directional keys. The main cons I highlighted was that CM should have ditched the Numpad and provide dedicated buttons for navigation and special keys. The end result is what you see here! A lot of people do not use Numpad, and if you buy a full-sized mechanical keyboard, you end up paying a premium for a keyboard where you’ll use it far lesser than you would do for multimedia and even macro keys. Keyboard designs like this help to keep the cost down while providing the goodness that mechanical switches provide, along with the familiar built quality that is reflected so far!

News: Heres 240-FPS footage of AMDs FreeSync techand some new info
     Fri, Jan 09 2015 | 1:17P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We`ve been hearing about FreeSync, AMD`s answer to Nvidia`s G-Sync variable refresh display tech, for just over a year now. This week at CES, we finally got a chance to see FreeSync in action, and we used that opportunity to shoot some enlightening 240-FPS footage. We were able to find out some new specifics from AMD, as well."

Risen 2: Dark Waters 2-Years Later
     Wed, Jan 07 2015 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Now, I am not going to say Risen 2 is a bad game, because it is not quite to that level. It definitely has some bad elements, but just enough good to keep from tipping over. It is a game I fail to recommend with a leaning to recommend against. If you have it you can check it out, but do not be surprised if after an hour or two you decide to uninstall it and move on to something more enjoyable.”

EVE Online’s in-game subscription
     Mon, Jan 05 2015 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"This is where dedicated Plex servers come into the mix. Any x86 PC running Windows, OS X, or Linux can act as a dedicated or shared sever for Plex. With these systems almost guaranteed to have better processors than the typical NAS, the transcoding issues mentioned above become irrelevant. Even when compared to high-end NAS devices with Intel Xeon CPUs, a dedicated server, if built properly, can better handle multiple connections and remote streaming. It’s also easier to access, manipulate, and back up the Plex support and database files from a traditional PC compared to a NAS."

Assassin's Creed Unity Performance Video Card Review
     Wed, Dec 31 2014 | 7:18A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Assassin's Creed Unity is out, wrapped in a tortilla of bugs and garnished with graphical glitches, the fourth patch to this game has been released with some new beta drivers. We will look at performance and find out what it takes to enjoy this game on the PC. A cold beer, or two, will certainly help.

Game Realism Via NVIDIA Enhanced Effects
     Wed, Dec 31 2014 | 12:18A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
QUOTE: Earlier this year, NVIDIA introduced the Maxwell architecture and a lot of upcoming features that Benchmark Reviews briefly talked about on the review of the GTX 980 by Olin Coles. These features were demonstrated in detail, but were still pending to be released on actual games, that is until Assassin’s Creed Unity was released earlier this year. Thanks to NVIDIA GameWorks, game developers have the ability to use NVIDIA’s sample libraries and SDKs as well as implementing some of the features mentioned that allow for a more realistic game-play experience.

Assassin's Creed Unity Performance and Overview
     Tue, Dec 30 2014 | 7:18P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"The newest rendition of Assassin’s Creed is titled Unity and was designed in partnership with NVIDIA GameWorks. With this partnership Assassin’s Creed implements technologies to improve graphics qualities. These include HBAO+, Advanced Soft Shadows, TXAA, additionally GameWorks has “Plug-and-Play” Tessellation libraries to provide developers with the opportunity to offer more detail to players. Assassin’s Creed Unity takes advantage of these libraries offering incredible details on the cobblestone and roof shingles."

Talon and Talon Blu
     Tue, Dec 30 2014 | 10:18A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We have the Tt eSPORTS Talon Blu gaming mouse under our review spotlight today. The Talon Blu is designed for gaming as well as daily usage at just under $20, yet still comes with bells and whistles like a blue LED. Users can also configure the AVAGO 3050 optical sensor to one of five DPI settings ranging from 500 to 3000 DPI.

Mionix NAOS 7000 gaming mouse review
     Sun, Dec 28 2014 | 6:18A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nobody ever wants to feel left out, which is why even though our recently reviewed AVIOR mouse was designed to offer a grip for both palm and claw grip gamers, Mionix didn’t release an ambidextrous mouse and tell you to ‘get on with it’. No it’s also got an ergonomic gaming peripheral up its sleeve called the NAOS. It’s very similar to its AVIOR cousin, using the same sensor and soft rubber shell, but this one comes equipped with finger rests and a palm orientated design. Will that ruin our stellar views of the Mionix rodent? That’s what we’re here to find out.

Cougar 700M Gaming Mouse
     Sat, Dec 27 2014 | 4:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
With such a wide variety of mice on the market we sometimes tend to focus just on what comes out from the largest of the manufactures. We sometimes forget that some of the companies that we now see as being large brands used to just be small up and coming brands. It’s nice to step back and check out what some of the other manufactures are doing. A great example of this is Cougar, just a few years ago they jumped into the fan market and we were very impressed with their offering. I’ve even seen some of their fans in use at our events. Well recently they jumped into the peripherals market and today I will be checking out their 700M gaming mouse to see if it has what it takes to stand out in a crowded market.

EVGA TORQ X10 Laser Gaming Mouse Review

AMD Radeon Gallium3D Is Catching Up & Sometimes Beating
     Sat, Dec 27 2014 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Last week I shared some preview benchmarks from Steam on Linux showing Radeon Gallium3D starting to beat Catalyst. In this article are the full results from comparing the open and closed-source AMD Linux graphics cards with sixteen Radeon graphics cards while testing Team Fortress 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on Linux. The results yield a very close race!"

Ubisoft Now Blames AMD For Assassin's Creed Unity Failure
     Sat, Dec 27 2014 | 9:01A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Life is hard when you're a AAA publisher. Last month, Ubisoft blamed weak console hardware for the troubles it had bringing Assassin's Creed Unity up to speed, claiming that it could've hit 100 FPS but for weak console CPUs. Now, in the wake of the game's disastrous launch, the company has changed tactics -- suddenly, all of this is AMD's fault...
