Crucial X8 Review
     Wed, Mar 11 2020 | 6:37P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Offering the drive in 500GB and 1TB capacities, with speeds up to 1050MB/s in both directions, the drive can be used for modestly-sized backups, as a Steam drive to take round to a friend’s or just for transferring files at speeds way in excess of what a typical USB flash drive is capable of.

ASUS ROG Zenith II Extreme Alpha (TRX40) Motherboard Review
     Wed, Mar 11 2020 | 6:37P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The rewards for offering a high-performance flagship motherboard on the TRX40 platform are clear. Vendors are all competing at price points well above £600 which culminates in motherboard options filled to the brim with the features that almost anybody could wish for. ASUS’ ROG Zenith II Extreme was no exception to that point. However, ASUS has taken the fight up a notch by releasing an updated ‘Alpha’ model which is buffed-up with a set of sixteen 90 Amp power stages.

Razer Kraken Ultimate Gaming Headset Review
     Wed, Mar 11 2020 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"About a year ago we took a look at Razer’s Kraken Tournament Edition headset, which we really did enjoy. It was however designed for professional gamers, hence the name “Tournament Edition”. For those looking for a more polished home solution Razer has the new Kraken Ultimate Edition. This sits as their flagship Kraken gaming headset and brings along with it many of the features that we saw in the Tournament Edition, but also adds in an active noise-canceling microphone, RGB lighting on the earcups, a USB-only connection, and controls on the headset itself rather than on a controller on your desk. Is this the ultimate gaming headset? Read on as find out!"

Silicon Power P34A60 PCIe 3x4 M.2 2280 512GB SSD Review
     Tue, Mar 10 2020 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" The mainstream PCIe Gen 3x4 P34A60 mainstream SSD from Silicon Power does offer good all-around performance and does not drop to very slow speeds when the cache fills up completely, as we could notice from the HD Tune Pro write test. When copying large files continuously to the drive, we haven’t seen drops of under 90MB/s, which is great for a TLC-based drive, while the 512GB capacity should be enough for a boot drive. "

     Tue, Mar 10 2020 | 9:01A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The ADATA SE800 is an NVMe based external SSD, which means it offers much better performance than earlier external storage. In our testing we saw speeds up to 1 GB/s, that, paired with 1 TB capacity on the SE800 make it an excellent choice if you want to move a lot of data around.

AMD CPUs for the past 9 years are vulnerable to data leak attacks
     Mon, Mar 09 2020 | 3:50P | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"It's not just Intel chips that are vulnerable to hard-to-fix security flaws. Researchers at the Graz University of Technology have detailed a pair of side channel attacks under the "Take A Way" name that can leak data from AMD processors dating back to 2011, whether it's an old Athlon 64 X2, a Ryzen 7 or a Threadripper. Both exploit the "way predictor" for the Level 1 cache (meant to boost the efficiency of cache access) to leak memory content. The Collide+Probe attack lets an intruder monitor memory access without having to know physical addresses or shared memory, while Load+Reload is a more secretive method that uses shared memory without invalidating the cache line."

SteelSeries Apex 3 Water Resistant Gaming Keyboard Review
     Sat, Mar 07 2020 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" Writing an entire article on the Apex 3 was a really easy task thanks to the higher actuation point and we did not make any mistakes like on the regular high-speed gaming-only keyboards. This is a good point to recommend when using the keyboard in corporate offices as well: the new SteelSeries domes are silent, while the full-size layout allows usage when working with lots of numbers. For mainstream, casual gamers the Apex 3 is a joy to use and we have tested it to confirm in games such as MK11, Dying Light, Bayonetta and Project Torque. Competitive gamers will always steer to the high-end segment and especially to the MX Speed switches, that allow lightning-fast response when actuated. "

We expand our coverage of Cherry first-party keyboard offerings with a detailed look at the MX Board 5.0. With five switch options and a fairly unique ergonomic perspective via a wrist rest (yes, you read it right), the MX Board 5.0 is a 108-key unit that has white backlighting and onboard controls, too.

TerraMaster TD2 Thunderbolt 3 2-bay DAS Review
     Sat, Mar 07 2020 | 9:00A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
TerraMaster’s TD2 Thunderbolt 3 is a 2-bay DAS (Direct-Attached Storage) drive aimed at professional users and, as the name suggests comes with a pair of Thunderbolt 3 interfaces. TerraMaster’s TD2 Thunderbolt 3 looks just like a 2-bay NAS with the obvious exception that the TD2 comes with a very useful carrying handle. The enclosure is built from aluminium which along with the 80mm smart fan helps to keep the unit cool.
