GIGABYTE AORUS NVMe Gen4 SSD Review
     Fri, Oct 18 2019 | 3:43P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Utilising the industry’s first PCI-E 4.0 storage controller, the Phison PS5016-E16, as well as DDR4 caching and Toshiba’s BiCS4 96-layer NAND, the Gen4 SSD offers read and write speeds of 5000MB/s and 4400MB/s respectively, with 750K and 700K read and write IOPS. If you’re familiar with drives like the Samsung 970 PRO or the Western Digital SN750, the best that PCI-E 3.0 had to offer, the promise of 5GB/s and 4.4GB/s will certainly get the juices flowing.

SteelSeries Sensei Ten @ LanOC Reviews
     Fri, Oct 18 2019 | 3:38P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The history of the SteelSeries Sensei actually starts back with the SteelSeries Xai which launched back in 2009. The Xai was a huge departure from their previous mouse the Ikari and its new shape was ambidextrous and smaller using some of the popular mice in CS 1.6 like the Intellimouse and feedback from gamers to create the Xai shape. I covered the Xai back then and loved it but it did have some problems. SteelSeries later took that same shape but with an upgraded sensor and an onboard processor and introduced it under a new name, the Sensei. We actually had the first English review of the Sensei all the way back in 2011. I started using the Xai as my main mouse and quickly switched over to the Sensei after its launch and for a solid 8 years used the Sensei or one of the many other variations like the RAW or game or team branded models as my main mouse and in my LAN bag as well.

     Fri, Oct 18 2019 | 9:03A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Time to get back into some CPU benchmarking, and we're not looking at any old CPU, but the first of Intel's 10th-generation processors. Seeing Intel reach the limits of their 14nm process, we genuinely weren't expecting the Core i7-10710U to be this good.

AMD EPYC vs. Intel Xeon Cascadelake With Facebook's RocksDB
     Fri, Oct 18 2019 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Following the benchmarks earlier this month looking at PostgreSQL 12.0 on AMD EPYC Rome versus Intel Xeon Cascade Lake there was interest from Phoronix readers in wondering how well Rome is doing for other modern enterprise database workloads. One of those workloads that was recently added to the Phoronix Test Suite / OpenBenchmarking.org is Facebook's RocksDB, the company's embedded database that is forked from Google LevelDB. With RocksDB being designed to exploit many CPU cores and modern SSD storage, here are some benchmarks looking at how the Xeon Platinum 8280 stacks up against various new AMD EPYC 7002 series processors."

Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2060 Super WindForce OC 8G Graphics Card
     Fri, Oct 18 2019 | 9:00A | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"As we mentioned in our review of Gigabyte’s GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gaming OC 8G is the mid-range market is quite crowded and that is still the case months later. Today we are taking a look at another RTX 2060 Super graphics card from Gigabyte, this time it is their WindForce OC 8G model. It features a nice factory overclock up to 1680 MHz (from 1650 MHz), Gigabyte’s WindForce 2X cooling solution, and a pretty sleek overall design. This card costs the same as the reference RTX 2060 Super ($399), so basically you are getting a factory overclock and custom cooling solution for the same price as a reference card. Let’s see what this card is all about."
