Posted by: STAFF
Cutting edge wireless technology, a top optical sensor, great buttons, and an elegantly simple, widely usable shape. This is what the Logitech G Pro Wireless is. Oh, and of course, it doesn't lack RGB either, while keeping the overall weight right at 80 grams. However, it doesn't come cheap.

FNATIC miniStreak Gaming Keyboard Review
     Tue, Aug 21 2018 | 3:23P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"If you are into eSports you’ve probably heard of FNATIC, they currently have professional teams for some of the most popular games out there like CS:GO, DOTA2, League of Legends, Fortnite, and Rocket League. Typically professional eSports teams are sponsored by peripheral brands who supply their gaming keyboards, mice, headsets, etc for these professional gamers to use. FNATIC went a different route and has created their own gaming “gear” line called FNATIC Gear, offering keyboards, mice, headsets, and mousepads. Are these just cheap products with the FNATIC logo on them? Or are they quality gaming products designed to give you the competitive edge? Today we are checking out our first FNATIC product, the miniStreak, which is a tenkeyless mechanical gaming keyboard. It features an anodized aluminium top plate, Cherry MX mechanical key switches, and full RGB backlighting backed up with some pretty awesome software. Let’s jump in and see what this keyboard can do."

Huawei MateBook D Review: A Sleek
     Tue, Aug 21 2018 | 3:22P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Huawei MateBook D is an affordable, thin and light ultrabook, that’s somewhat comparable to the Apple MacBook Air. However, when comparing them side-by-side you’ll see that the MateBook has a lower price, is more powerful, has better graphics performance, and even slimmer bezels. It's as if Huawei out did Apple's design in nearly every way and then body slammed them with a lower price point. And when we say lower price, we aren't even talking in the same ballpark. The cheapest Apple MacBook Air is going to cost you nearly $900 USD, whereas the Huawei MateBook D can be found for as low as $629.99 USD...

SteelSeries Arctis Pro + GameDAC and Arctis Pro Wireless
     Tue, Aug 21 2018 | 3:22P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
All the way back in November 2016 I took a look at the SteelSeries Arctis 5 and was impressed with the direction they were going. It even earned out top honors and an editors choice award. But I was waiting on the change to check out the Arctis 7 because I hate getting tangled in the wires. Well later in mid-2017 I covered the Arctis 7 and while I was really happy with it I felt like it had lost a few features from the H Wireless that were great. Well, we are back at it again, only this time SteelSeries has brought out two headsets for the high end of their product line with the Arctis Pro name. One is the Arctis Pro Wireless, I can’t wait to see how that compares to the Arctis 7 that I have been using for the past year. The others are wired Arctis Pro’s, they are the same headset only one also comes with what they call the GameDAC, a desktop DAC for those who don’t have a high-end audio card or DAC already. Today I will be checking out that version alongside of the wireless to see if both are worth their wallet busting price points.

BIOSTAR Racing X470GT8 AM4 Motherboard Review
     Tue, Aug 21 2018 | 9:03A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"With the Racing X470GT8, BIOSTAR has built a solid mainstream platform for the AMD Ryzen 2000 series and packs quite a bit of features. The UEFI interface is easy to navigate and within it we can fine-tune the system performance or adapt the settings depending on the installed hardware. Thanks to the total of four memory slots, we can install up to 64GB of RAM and theoretically up to 3200MHz RAM is supported; in our tests, the GEIL PC4 25600 3200MHz CL16 8GBx2 Samsung B-die based kit did run well until 2933MHz, but considering that we were running the latest BETA BIOS, things may improve in the future."

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!"
