AMD EPYC 7002 Series Architecture: Doubling Data Center Performance
     Thu, Aug 15 2019 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD has officially taken the wraps off of its second generation EPYC 7002 series processors. The EPYC 7002 series builds upon the success of the original EPYC processors by leveraging the Zen 2 microarchitecture, which is also at the heart of the recently released Ryzen 3000 series desktop parts. EPYC 7002 series processors maintain platform compatibility with existing first-gen EPYC parts, but significantly increase the platform’s capabilities in aggregate and per socket, and introduce a number of new features as well...

Building An AMD Ryzen 9 3900X Liquid-Cooled Performance Desktop
     Tue, Aug 13 2019 | 12:54P | Cooling / Heatsinks | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
AMD's Ryzen 3000 series processors have made a positive impact on the PC enthusiast market, the likes of which we haven't seen in years. From a performance-per-dollar standpoint, AMD's disruptive Zen 2 architecture offers a strong value proposition for new desktop PC builders from all walks of life and for many use cases including gaming, content creation and other workstation-class requirements. In fact, we were so impressed by Ryzen 3000 series processors in our launch review, that we decided we needed to have AMD's new architecture in our production flow here at HotHardware. This also presented us with an opportunity to call upon a few industry friends like Maingear Computers, Gigabyte, EVGA and of course AMD, to join in on the project and the ensuing fun of building up a new high performance system...

Metal Wolf Chaos XD
     Tue, Aug 13 2019 | 12:52P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Before getting too far, it is important to note Metal Wolf Chaos XD is best thought of as a re-release, and not a remaster or remake. While some things have been improved, like the textures, the content and experience has been unchanged from the original game. This means the "grandiose" voice overs and localization quirks remain, but alongside the improved textures for modern 1080p and 4K displays, the UI has been redrawn for modern displays, and the voice over has been remastered from the original audio. This means the audio will be of higher quality, but the voices and content have not been changed."

1MORE Dual Driver BT ANC In-Ear Headphones Review
     Tue, Aug 13 2019 | 12:51P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" After switching between earbuds and choosing the ones that offer least leakage and best comfort, we have connected the unit to our Huawei P30 smartphone and watched various TV shows, YouTube clips and podcasts. We were quite amazed to see great sound delivery all across the board, including quite a bit of bass, which is not very frequent when working with in-ear headphones. The bass can be further enhanced by using the software application and even at higher volumes we did not encounter distortion. The use of the neckband does allow an optimal placement of the microphone, which can deliver clear voice to the person on the other side of the call, with little to no background noise. "

ROCCAT Noz Review
     Tue, Aug 13 2019 | 12:51P | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF

Mini Portable Bluetooth Location Marker
     Tue, Aug 13 2019 | 12:50P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In 2017, Breadcrumb developed their second product, and the subject of this review, the Mini Portable Bluetooth Location Marker. This compact, watertight device can be used to keep track of any item using GPS and Bluetooth, but for the outdoorsman it may be of particular interest to mark the location of a tree stand, or perhaps a backpack that had to be put down to lighten the load while hunting.

Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex TV HD Media Player Review
Nov 25 | Home Theatre
Seagate's GoFlex TV HD is a media player with network connectivity and hard drive dock. The pint-sized black box fits unobtrusively in a living room environment - unlike a full sized Media PC - and the GoFlex TV HD's on screen controls are simple to navigate via the infrared remote control. Full size media PCs often need a keyboard and mouse to be useful, having cooling fans that make a lot of noise and take up too much space...
