Intel Core i9-9980XE CPU Review: Supercharged
     Tue, Nov 13 2018 | 1:20P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

When Intel officially announced its 9th Generation Core processors at an event in NYC a few weeks back, it used the opportunity to also unveil a beastly, unlocked 28-core Xeon processor that’ll be arriving at a later date, and a refreshed line-up of 9th Gen-branded Core-X series processors as well. Unlike the 9th Gen Core i products, however, which leverage an updated Coffee Lake microarchitecture, the “new” Core X series remains based on Skylake-X. We’ve had the flagship Core i9-9980XE in hand for a little while now and will lay out its performance, power, and overclocking capacity on the pages ahead...


Intel Core i9-9980XE Extreme Edition Processor Review
     Tue, Nov 13 2018 | 1:19P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

Last month, Intel announced the "Basin Falls Refresh" for their Core X-Series HEDT processors. Seven new parts were announced with the flagship of the series being the Intel Core i9-9980XE 18-core, 36-thread processor that is the successor to the Intel Core i9-7980XE 18-core, 36-thread processor launched just last year. Architecturally, the Core i9-9980XE is very similar to its Core i9-7980XE predecessor, but is made on the latest 14nm++ manufacturing process. The improvements on this node along with the switch to solder thermal interface material (STIM) have allowed Intel to increase base/boost clock speeds. Read on to see how that improves performance.

Party Hard 2
     Tue, Nov 13 2018 | 12:01P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
This is the second in a series I hadn’t heard of until last week when Pinokl Games approached me with a review key. After no small amount of research, I discovered this bizarre style of game that I can only describe as a mash up between the latest and greatest of the Hitman series, and Hotline: Miami. A comparison of those two may peak your interest, as it should.

Silverstone Lucid LD01
     Tue, Nov 13 2018 | 12:00P | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Lucid LD01 from Silverstone tries to ditch the plastic and move to a mix relying heavily on steel and tempered glass for an understated high quality look and feel. It clearly caters to those who'd like to transcend the classic use of steel and plastic panels and want simple but effective, functional designs and features.

The MSI GeForce RTX 2070 Gaming Z comes at NVIDIA Founders Edition pricing of $600, yet beats that card in every regard. The cooler is whisper quiet, even during heavy gaming sessions; and when not loaded, the fans turn off completely, thanks to the idle-fan-stop feature.

     Tue, Nov 13 2018 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Phanteks is one of those rare manufacturers whose products exude such a signature style that you can begin to recognize them from afar. Even when the company comes out with new cases, you can instantly recognize the DNA. It’s not quite minimalist, but it’s never over-the-top either. That’s certainly true of the Phanteks Eclipse P300. This case, like any case …

"The PlayStation Gold headphones really come into their own when used with the PSVR. The headphones feature 3D audio, meaning that when you turn your head the sound changes accordingly. This really does make the whole experience so much more immersive. We tested the headphones with a number of games, but our favourite was Superhot..."
