Razer Lancehead Review

Razer’s Flagship Wireless Gaming Mouse

Several weeks ago, we were able to get our hands on Razer’s new wired ambidextrous eSports grade gaming mouse, the Razer Lancehead Tournament Edition, which we were quite impressed with. While a portion of the advertised features weren’t available at the time of the review (Synapse 3 is required for the Hybrid On-Board functionality), the Razer Lancehead TE still proved to be a fantastic gaming mouse with a flawless sensor, an excellent design and a reasonable price point.

Along with the Lancehead TE, Razer also launched the Razer Lancehead, which we’ll be reviewing today. The main difference between [...]

Nixeus NX-EDG27 Review

Best in Class

Several years ago, Nixeus made a huge splash into the gaming monitor market with their Nixeus NX-VUE24, a relatively inexpensive 24-inch, 1080p monitor that was one of the first monitors to feature a 30Hz-144Hz FreeSync range. The monitor did use a TN panel, so color accuracy and viewing angles weren’t as good as its VA or IPS panel competitors, but the 30Hz-144Hz FreeSync range was glorious compared to the 40Hz-144Hz or 50Hz-144Hz competitors on the market.

Earlier this year at CES 2017, Nixeus was back at it again, this time around with a the new Nixeus NX-EDG27, a 27-inch gaming monitor featuring a 1440p resolution, AHVA (IPS) display technology, a [...]

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.

How to Overclock Your Monitor with a Nvidia Graphics Card

As PC enthusiasts, we spend quite a lot of time tinkering with our CPUs and GPU overclocks to squeeze every last bit of performance out of them, but it’s not common knowledge that monitors can also be overclocked as well.

 

Why Overclock a Monitor?

Generally speaking, unless you own a 100Hz or 144Hz monitor, your monitor is running at 60Hz, or 60 Frames Per Second (FPS). Overclocking a monitor essentially refers to going beyond the 60Hz specification set by the monitor manufacturer in order to push more FPS than the manufacturer’s specification. Depending on the panel you own and a bit of luck, overclocking the monitor could potentially [...]
