MSI B450i Gaming Plus AC Motherboard Review
     Mon, Aug 20 2018 | 1:46P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"AMD launched their second generation Ryzen processor back in April and with that we got the new X470 chipset, which for one supports the new Ryzen processors right out of the gate and offers some new features like Extended Frequency Range 2 and Precision Boost 2. Just like the initial Ryzen launch the higher-end X470 motherboards came first, and now we have the budget-minded B450 boards. While we call these budget boards, they really offer quite a lot and you get pretty much the same feature-set you get with X470. If you are running a single graphics card and don’t need an abundance of USB ports one of these boards might be perfect for you and the money you save can be used towards a better graphics card or NVMe solid state drive. Today we are checking out the very small MSI B450i Gaming Plus AC motherboard, which is a mini-ITX board. Is this board perfect for your next small form factor build? Read on as we find out!"

In our hands today is the recently released Acer Predator Helios 300. This gaming laptop is designed to satisfy the mid-range with Intel’s Core i7-8750H, 16GB DDR4 and GTX 1060. Acer has also stepped away from the typical TN panel you’d usually see on a laptop of this price-point, in favour of the superior IPS display.

Shuttle XPC Slim Barebone DH10J Review
     Mon, Aug 20 2018 | 1:45P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With the DL10J, Shuttle is offering a solid upgrade option from the Apollo Lake DX30, thanks to the upgrade to the latest generation Gemini Lake Intel Celeron J4005 SoC. Even if we are talking about the same TDP, IPC has been increased along with the maximum clock speeds and on the graphics side, the new processor does feature Intel UHD Graphics 600, being able to drive up to three monitors. The chassis is compact and solid and preserves the outside appearance as the previous model; the VESA mount is included in the package by default, so you can mount the mini-PC in the back of the display right away."

How To Test Memory Using MemTest86
     Mon, Aug 20 2018 | 9:02A | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If you have any sort of system stability issues, starting with the memory is generally a good bet. It is often people skip testing system memory for defects or the root cause of a system crash because it is often seen as an unnecessary computer component. In reality, it is one of the most important hardware components in any computer. If your system memory is failing, it can account for random lockups, failed POST screens, and an assortment of strange computer issues."

AMD 2nd Gen Ryzen Threadripper 2950X And 2990WX Review
     Mon, Aug 20 2018 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, AMD is officially unveiling its 2nd Generation Ryzen Threadripper processors and it hopes to scale things up even further than it did last year. There’s only so much wiggle-room left in the enthusiast segment, so with this launch AMD has also set its sights on content creation and workstation professionals, with processors that feature 24 and 32 Zen+ cores. The Threadripper WX series is somewhat of a departure from the original Threadrippers, but their massive compute capabilities and aggressive price points (relatively speaking) may prove to be highly attractive to creators that can never have enough horsepower. The Threadripper X-series gets a significant boost from the Zen+ architecture as well, however. The goal with this round of Threadrippers is to offer a better experience than the originals all-around, while also offering more performance, and maintaining full platform compatibility...
