Corsair M65 RGB Elite Review
     Sat, Jan 19 2019 | 9:01A | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The M65 retains the much-loved shape of previous models while boosting the internals and improving the materials used for better performance. Firstly, we find a brand new, custom-made PixArt PWM 3391 sensor capable of up to 18,000 DPI with sensitivity adjustments in 1 DPI increments. There’re also chassis improvements which reduce the weight to 97g without the optional weights.

nktec Bolt Smart Car Mount and Qi Wireless Charger
     Fri, Jan 18 2019 | 9:03A | Peripherals | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Wireless charging has been around for quite a while, but it hasn't had much market penetration. This is starting to change as more and more mobile devices offer it, and most support some version of the Qi standard. While there are numerous options out there for home chargers, the field for automobile chargers has been a bit more limited. Recently I received a press release for a new charger by Lynktec called the Bolt Smart Car Mount & Qi Wireless Charger.

Corsair's small-sized entry-level mouse, the Harpoon, has been facelifted, and it's nowhere near entry level now. The Harpoon RGB Wireless—as its name suggests—now doesn't need a wire to operate. It features a PMW3325 optical sensor, Omron switches rated for 50 million clicks, and RGB lighting as well.

Sunset Overdrive
     Fri, Jan 18 2019 | 9:00A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Originally released as an Xbox One exclusive in 2014, Sunset Overdrive is now available on Windows for PC gamers to enjoy. The game is set in Sunset City where FizzCo is releasing its new OverCharge Delirium XR drink, which unfortunately turns those who drink it into mutants. Luckily you, in your pathetic job of picking up garbage at the launch event, did not have any so you survive, but after running out of supplies in your apartment are forced to leave it and work with other survivors to survive. Complicating things is that FizzCo has cut off communication between Sunset City and the rest of the world, so you cannot expect help or even the truth to get out. It will be up to you and the friends you make to find a way to survive and ultimately stop FizzCo within the city, all while the mutated OD (Overcharge Drinkers) and lethal scavenger Scabs try to kill you."

Posted by: STAFF
Thanks to its replaceable Flaretech Infra-Red analog switches and the 1ms Tachyon mode the Wooting One is among the most advanced keyboards in the market today but are those enough to justify its somewhat high price tag?

USB Type-C chip prices to fall over 20% in 2019
     Thu, Jan 17 2019 | 9:01A | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
USB Type-C interface devices are increasingly applied to a variety of consumer electronics gadgets, prompting major Taiwan IC design houses to deepen their deployments in related chip solutions. But prices of such chips are likely to fall by over 20% in 2019 due partly to more chipmakers racing to vie for orders with lower quotes and partly to terminal vendors not eager to stockpile inventories amid the loosening of tight foundry capacity supply, according to industry sources.

Posted by: STAFF
"GRIS follows a young girl who is in a world of her own, following a painful experience in her real life. It is through exploring this world that she comes to address her emotions, which opens up new paths along with her dress manifesting abilities to aid her progression. Being a narrative experience, there is little cause for frustration as there is no risk of death or danger, unless you cannot figure out the solution to a puzzle. There are also some secrets you can find by exploring a bit off of the path and doing some careful platforming."

Intel Core i9-9980XE Extreme Edition Review – It Hertz!
     Wed, Jan 16 2019 | 9:01A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
On the face of it the i9-9980XE looked very similar to the preceding i9-7980XE with only modest changes to the clock speed and the welcome addition of a soldered heat spreader. Headline features that have been carried over from i9-7980XE to i9-9980XE are 18 cores/36 threads, 18MB total L2 cache (1MB per core), 24.75MB total L3 cache, 14nm fabrication process and an Intel list price of US$1,999. It was immediately clear the i9-9980XE did not truly deserve to be called 9th Generation as any changes looked more like detail revisions than significant updates. Nonetheless we could hardly wait to strap this new monster CPU to our test bench and see how well it performed.
