XFX AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT 6GB GDDR6 THICC III Ultra Video Card Review
     Wed, Feb 19 2020 | 9:03A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" With the release of the Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB GDDR6 Ultra THICC III, XFX has refined the cooling system quite a bit and now we do have a card that only occupies two slots, remains cool during maximum load and at the same time the fans remain at very low noise levels. Even though the card runs with the memory at 12Gbps, the used packages are rated at 14Gbps, so we have some overclocking headroom for sure in this regard, while the GPU reaches nearly 1750MHz boost clock in Time Spy Extreme, as the manufacturer intended. XFX and AMD themselves have intended to recommend this card for 1080P resolutions while gaming, but we have seen situations when this card can handle 1440P resolutions at around 60FPS in some titles, without exceeding 140W package power. "

ASRock Radeon RX 5500 XT Phantom Gaming OC 8 GB
     Wed, Feb 19 2020 | 9:02A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
ASRock's Radeon RX 5500 XT Phantom Gaming comes at AMD MSRP of $200, yet features a solid cooler with a metal backplate, idle-fan stop and very low temperatures. 8 GB GDDR6 give the card a performance advantage over the 4 GB version, even at 1080p. Is future-proofing worth it?

ABKONCORE RAMESSES 760 Full Tower Case Review
     Wed, Feb 19 2020 | 9:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The RAMESSES 760 by ABKONCORE may lack the stock airflow levels we usually expect from full towers but thanks to its massive interior space, tempered glass side panels and the 8 pre-installed SP120 Spectrum RGB fans it’s still a valid offering in the vast sea of PC cases.

     Tue, Feb 18 2020 | 2:44P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink

Glorious PC Gaming Race GMMK Tenkeyless Gaming Keyboard Review
     Tue, Feb 18 2020 | 2:43P | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Glorious PC Gaming Race busted onto the scene with their Model O lightweight gaming mouse. We liked that mouse quite a lot and now Glorious is putting their stamp on a keyboard dubbed the GMMK. The GMMK stands for “Glorious Modular Mechanical Keyboard” like the name it is truly modular as you can completely swap out each individual switch. Besides that feature you are going to get Gateron Brown mechanical key switches, ABS double-shot keycaps, aluminum top plate, per-key RGB backlighting, and a minimalistic design. Is this the ultimate keyboard? Read on as we find out!"

     Tue, Feb 18 2020 | 2:42P | Motherboards | PermaLink

Silicon Power 2x16GB DDR4-3200 XPOWER Turbine RGB Memory Kit
     Tue, Feb 18 2020 | 2:41P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" The XPOWER Turbine RGB 32GB kit from Silicon Power does offer wide compatibility for configuration in terms of LED lighting, while the Samsung ICs are carefully selected from the factory, in order to stay stable at the programmed XMP timings. In our case, the kit has performed interestingly well at 3000MHz instead of the rated 3200Mhz, which leaves us suspecting that the pre-programmed timings were more relaxed than the kit was capable of. When testing with the rated CAS timings and leaving the others on Auto, we managed to squeeze more performance out of the kit, but going further was not possible since the system was unable to boot. "

Coronavirus: Notebook components supply to dry up March
     Tue, Feb 18 2020 | 2:34P | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Notebook ODMs have resumed their production in China, but face the possibility of a lack of components starting in March if their suppliers continue to be prevented from going to work by the coronavirus outbreak. Quanta Computer has started volume production at a new assembly plant in Taiwan to meet urgent needs from clients, but components shortages remain an issue. Now Digitimes Research estimates that global notebook shipments will fall 29-36% in first-quarter 2020, much steeper than previously thought.

Notebook ODMs running out of components: Taiwanese notebook ODMs have already resumed assembly operations in China, but risks of supply chain disruptions in March are mounting, as inventories of many components will run out by end-February with many of their supporting suppliers still awaiting approvals from local governments to reopen their plants, according to industry sources."
