Back at CES this year, we got an exclusive look at a then prototype 1440p, 30-144Hz IPS FreeSync-enabled gaming monitor from our friends at Nixeus, now it has a name and is available for purchase today.
The all-new Nixeus EDG 27 retails for $499, making it one of the best values for a high-end gaming monitor available, and the world’s first FreeSync monitor pairing a variable refresh rate range of 30-144Hz with an IPS display and a 1440p resolution.
It’s clear that Nixeus looks to have a real contender on its hands with the EDG 27, but we’ll have to wait until we can test it ourselves before we can say for sure. Still, anyone in the [...]
A few weeks ago, AMD launched the Radeon RX 500 series, which is mostly a refresh of the previous-generation RX 400 series they launched less than a year ago. Mostly because the Radeon RX 500 series is based on the very same Polaris architecture as its predecessor, albeit on a slightly more mature process. Whatever your stance on rebadges, it’s clear that AMD has decided to double-down on its Polaris architecture in 2017, at least for the midrange and entry-level segments until its RX Vega GPUs appear later on to cover the high-end market. So like it are not, Polaris is here to stay for the foreseeable future.
Today, we’re going to take a look at [...]
Today, ZOTAC has announced refreshed versions of their GeForce GTX 1080 AMP Extreme, and GeForce GTX 1060 AMP+. The new cards will feature NVIDIA’s new, faster 11 Gbps and 9.0 Gbps memory for the two GPUs.ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme with 11 Gbps Memory
Starting with the higher-end of the two, we have the ZOTAC GeForced GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme. This card is virtually identical to the previous version of the GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme which the company debuted alongside the GeForce 10 series last year. However, this new model features faster 11Gbps GDDR5X memory, compared to the 10Gbps memory of the previous version.
Other specifications remain [...]
Today, Phanteks has announced its latest update to its lineup of premium chassis: the EVOLV mATX Tempered Glass Edition. Like the EVOLV ATX TG and Enthoo Luxe TG before it, the EVOLV mATX TG is a mostly aesthetic facelift of the original, adding premium tempered glass side panels and RGB lighting.Phanteks Enthoo EVOLV mATX Tempered Glass Edition
The EVOLV mATX TG adds tempered glass side panels to an already pretty solid base that was the original EVOLV mATX. The case also features a number of improvements over some of the other tempered-glass cases in Phanteks’ lineup including magnetic hinges with swivel to open and allow the user to easily get in and out of [...]
With the release of the Radeon RX 500 series, PowerColor has just launched a variety of new graphics cards based on the Radeon RX 580 and Radeon RX 570 GPUs. Keeping in line with the theme of their RX 400 series graphics cards, the new cards will be dubbed Red Devil and Red Dragon, with the former offering higher factory overclocks and superior cooling solutions at a bit of a price premium.PowerColor Radeon RX 580 Red Devil and Red Dragon
Starting with the RX 580 Red Devil Golden Sample (pictured above), which is the top of the company’s top of the line, heavily factory-overclocked model featuring a three-slot cooling solution with dual fans. It features a [...]
Today, AMD launched their refreshed, Radeon RX 500 series graphics which focus on the mid-range, and entry-level gaming markets. These new cards are based on the same Polaris architecture as the previously released Radeon RX 400 series of GPUs, albeit with a few notable enhancements. These new GPUS will go head-to-head with NVIDIA’s GeForce 10 series, specifically the GTX 1060 6GB and 3GB, and the GTX 1050 and GTX 10580 Ti. If you were hoping for some competition on the higher-end from AMD, you’ll have to keep waiting for their upcoming RX Vega GPUs who’s availability is still currently unknown, but AMD assures us Vega is “just around the [...]
Today, NZXT has launched a new version of their Kraken liquid-cooling GPU bracket. The Kraken G12 follows the footsteps of the Kraken G10 in offering a universal mounting solution for cooling graphics cards with standard all-in-one liquid coolers.
“Being able to play the latest games at the highest settings, without sacrificing performance is something all gamers want. While aftermarket graphic cards have improved lately, most stock cooling systems still can’t reach the performance level of liquid cooling. That’s why we decided to design the updated Kraken G12 to be easier to install and support the latest liquid AIOs” says Johnny Hou, [...]
Mechanical keyboards have become fairly ubiquitous in today’s market. Likewise, RGB peripherals are pretty much a dime a dozen with pretty much every component company RGB-ifiying everything in their product lineup. From the typical RGB keyboards and mice, to the not so common RGB power supplies, RGB is everywhere, and it is likely here to stay. So, with that said, it’s probably not surprising that pretty much every new “gaming keyboard” does little but combine RGB lighting with mechanical key switches and call it a day. Offering little, if not nothing actually unique to gamers. I mean, what else is there to do?
Well, that’s [...]
NVIDIA has just launched an all-new version of its flagship, ultra-high-end Titan X graphics card, dubbed the Titan Xp (Yes, really). This new 4K gaming beast brings with it a fully unlocked GP102 GPU core, featuring 3,840 CUDA cores and 12.15 TFLOPs of compute performance.NVIDIA GeForce TITAN Xp Manufacturer NVIDIA Model Titan Xp Titan X GTX 1080 Ti Codename GP102 GP102 GP102 Architecture Pascal Fabrication 16nm FinFET (TSMC) Boost Clock (MHz) 1582 1531 1582 CUDA Cores 3840 3584 3584 Framebuffer 12GB 12GB 11GB Memory Type GDDR5X Memory Interface 256-bit 384-bit 352-bit Memory Clock 11.4 Gbps 10 Gbps 11 Gbps Memory Bandwidth 547.7 GB/s 480 [...]
This week Corsair unveiled the company’s first ever fully built gaming PC, the aptly named Corsair One. While the One does represent a venture outside of Corsair’s usual product lineup, it is not necessarily outside of the company’s comfort zone as enthusiast gaming has been in Corsair’s DNA since the very beginning. With that said, the Corsair One is an impressive piece of engineering and design.
The small-form-factor tower packs quite a bit inside, featuring not one, but two ultra thin, 240mm closed-loop water coolers which cool down both the CPU and the GPU and are supplied air by the tastefully designed ventilation holes at either [...]
