     Tue, Sep 18 2018 | 1:39P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
We review new HyperX anew Predator DDR4 RGB 32GB 2933 MHz (quad/dual-channel) from HyperX. At 2933 MHz, not the fastest, but this is a 32GB kit that can be tweaked towards 3333 MHz easily. It's pretty cool with a new configurable RGB implementation and runs XMP 2.0 memory profiles on Intel platforms as well. Join us as we review not some nice bars of memory, it's fitted with a new style and design as well.

AMD Athlon 200GE Review: $55 Zen CPU
     Tue, Sep 18 2018 | 1:37P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD's most affordable Zen based processor yet, the Athlon 200GE is just dual-core, but before your shrek louder than the coil whine of a cheap graphics card, consider the price, this is a $55 processor. Clocked at 3.2 GHz, there's 5MB of cache in total, and the integrated Radeon GPU packs just 3 compute units. The TDP rating has been set at just 35 watts.

Toshiba OCZ RC100 240GB Solid State Drive Review
     Tue, Sep 18 2018 | 1:37P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
When you think about NVMe solid state drives you typically think of high performance, high cost drives. Well Toshiba has a new class of NVMe drives in their OCZ RC100 series drives that will help bring NVMe drives into the mainstream. These new affordable NVMe drives have a DRAM-less design, but make use of Host Memory Buffer (HMB) which accesses the system DRAM for its own caching space. The drives also make use of a PCIe Gen 3 x2 interface (whereas most NVMe drives use an x4 interface). With that you have sequential read and write speeds of 1600 MB/s and 1050 MB/s respectively. While this speed is not on the level of high-end NVMe drives it is definitely faster than a normal SATA-based solid state drives and much, much faster than a traditional hard drive. Can this be the drive to bring NVMe speeds to the mainstream? Read on as we find out!"

EasySMX Wireless ESM-9013
     Tue, Sep 18 2018 | 12:02P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
EasySMX is probably not something that you’ll think of buying peripherals from unless you have some experience with it. Sometimes, it is unfortunate because much smaller brands do have some good products to use it with. This is its ESM-9013 wireless game controller that light in weight and light in the pocket. I haven’t use gamepads for a very long time so it should be interesting as a PC user how this goes.?

RGB Free PC Build Guide - 2018
     Tue, Sep 18 2018 | 12:01P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In this guide, we’re on a quest to provide a full system specification for anyone who prefers to side-step the current RGB mania. At Vortez, we’re fully engaged with RGB lighting and we actually quite like it, but we also appreciate that it may not be everyone’s ‘cup of tea’. So, if you would rather opt for a subdued, discreet configuration – then you’ve come to the right place.

MSI MEG X399 Creation – The best motherboard ever!
     Tue, Sep 18 2018 | 9:00A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In theory you could match the 2990WX with any X399 motherboard but in practice we knew it would require something special and MSI MEG X399 Creation looked VERY special. The headline feature is the 16-phase VRM for the CPU Vcore and it turns out each phase is rated at 70A which means this motherboard has a maximum theoretical capability of 1,120A. If you set the Vcore at 1.2V this gives a total power figure that is north of 1,300W, while a 1.3V setting would be a maximum of 1,456W. Of course these are figures for the VRMs loaded to 100 percent but no matter how you look at it, these are remarkable figures for a workstation or gaming motherboard.
