ASUS ROG Phone Review: Blistering Performance
     Tue, Dec 11 2018 | 2:43P | Mobile Devices | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Do you even game on your phone, bro? Sorry, we'll slap ourselves silly for the obnoxious comment, but it's actually a valid question. Some people primarily use their phone to snap pictures for posting on Facebook and Instagram, while others go old school and -- gasp -- make actual phone calls with their handset. The ASUS ROG Phone does both of those things with aplomb, but it was really built for playing games first and foremost...

Razer Naga Trinity MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse Review
     Tue, Dec 11 2018 | 9:03A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"After setting up Naga Trinity with our own preferences, we went ahead with testing it in games, but also productivity work; thanks to its wide chassis and shape, it is fairly easy to reach the configurable buttons and in our case we did feel right at home while using a palm grip. The DPI settings can be changed quite easily and Razer does also make use of the Hypershift function, for doubling the button mappings (function found with other manufacturers as well, but with other names). The Trinity name is not there for nothing, you are practically getting a 3-in-1 mouse model."

AOC I1601FWUX Portable 16in USB-C monitor review
     Tue, Dec 11 2018 | 9:01A | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Until the halcyon days of foldable and rollable displays arrive, we’re pretty much stuck with whatever display size is integrated into our laptops for viewing on the go – or are we? One solution is to add a secondary, portable display, such as the USB-powered 16in AOC I1601FWUX we are looking at today. Great for presenting to clients wherever you are, multi-tasking, watching a movie on the train/plane, or even using at home if you fancy some extra screen real estate anywhere in your house, a sizeable portable monitor can enhance your work and play. Join us as we find out if AOC’s new model is the one to go for.

Patriot EVLVR Portable Thunderbolt 3 SSD Review
     Mon, Dec 10 2018 | 9:02A | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Patriot is perhaps one of the lesser-known PC component and accessory manufacturers in comparison to large players like Kingston or Corsair, but the Northern California-based company has actually been around since 1985. About 10 years ago, Patriot launched its Viper Gaming brand, which offers high-performance gaming memory and peripherals. The product we have today, the Patriot EVLVR, is from Patriot's more business-facing product lines and it is an external, portable NVMe SSD which employs the Thunderbolt 3 interface for full PCIe Gen 3 performance capabilities...

SilentiumPC Regnum RG2 TG Pure Black
     Sun, Dec 09 2018 | 9:03A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
www.pcstats.com

The European cooling and PC case brand SilentiumPC upgrades its airflow-oriented Regnum RG2 case by adding a tempered-glass side-panel. While being part of the entry-level portfolio of the SilentiumPC lineup, Regnum RG2 has surprisingly much to offer. It merges a bold yet classy front-panel with a modern interior layout and an extended I/O panel, making it a great choice for reasonably priced gaming systems.

Regnum RG2 TG is designed to surpass the user’s expectations of an average entry-level chassis. The clean and well balanced exterior design with a big tempered-glass side-panel gives a great view on the components inside the roomy interior. SilentiumPC uses the dual-chamber layout, which dramatically improves airflow and benefits cable management.

Being compatible with ATX motherboards, long power supplies, graphics cards up to 380 mm and CPU coolers up to 160 mm, it allows for flexible choice of components. Also available are two external 5,25” drive bays as well as two 3,5 and two 2,5” internal drive bays for desired HDD/SDD configurations.

The chassis comes equipped with two quiet Sigma PRO 120 mm fans and supports up to six 120 mm fans in total. By installing the first case fan in the front and the second one in the rear of the chassis, Regnum RG2 is able assure great airflow right out of the box. All intake holes are covered with dust-filters. Regnum RG2 is also compatible with both single and dual radiator all-in-one watercooling solutions.

All I/O ports are located at the top of the panel, including power and reset buttons, mic and headphone jacks, two USB 3.1 (Gen. 1) ports and a built-in card reader for both SD and MicroSD cards.

The Regnum RG2 TG is going to be available in the next days at 39,90 EUR (MSRP, incl. VAT) in Europe.

EVGA Z390 FTW Motherboard Review
     Sun, Dec 09 2018 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"One company that sort of hides under the radar when we have a new chipset launch is EVGA. We all know EVGA for their graphics cards, but their motherboards are less known. One thing I’ve liked about EVGA is how they haven’t conformed like everyone else and overloaded their motherboards with RGBs and things that just aren’t needed. With the Z390 launch EVGA’s first motherboard is the Z390 FTW, which is will eventually sit in the middle of their Z390 product stack once other boards are launched. This board looks quite similar to the Z370 FTW board, but does have a few changes. We will be combining this board with our Core i9-9900K to see what it can do! Read on to find out!"
