iBUYPOWER Snowblind Element
     Tue, Nov 12 2019 | 9:02A | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Back in 2017 at CES iBUYPOWER teased a concept that they had been working with, a PC case with a monitor built into the side panel. Now that idea itself isn’t completely new, there have been modders who have done it. But what they did was just have the LCD panel and nothing else, leaving a transparent side panel that you can still see everything inside with everything on the display floating and showing up almost like magic. This is well and good for a concept, but producing and selling what is basically a very complicated case mod is a whole different story and frankly I didn’t think they would do it. When last year at CES 2018 they actually introduced their Snowblind series of builds which included this feature I was surprised and impressed and it had me considering trying to do the same thing myself with a build. Buying a full build from them for the feature didn’t really make sense given my experience with PCs. Well at the start of this month they made that a lot easier with the introduction of their first individually sold case, the Snowblind. Well today I finally get to check it out in person. I’ve been collecting white components to go inside the build and today I’m going to check out iBUYPOWERs first case and check out its side panel window LCD as well!

Alienware m15 R2 Review: Beautiful OLED
     Mon, Nov 11 2019 | 4:00P | Computer / SFF PCs | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Alienware may just be the most well-known gaming desktop and notebook brand on the planet. The company's gray alien logo graces everything from proper, upgradeable desktops like the Aurora R9 to the huge desktop-replacement Area-51m notebook complete with actual desktop hardware. What we have on hand today isn't quite so big and bulky, however: the new 2019 edition of the company's workhorse m15 gaming notebook, the m15 R2. We had a chance to spend some one-on-one time with this sweet portable machine back at Computex, but now it's come through our labs from the mothership for an extended visit...

ASRock X570 Taichi AM4 Motherboard Review
     Mon, Nov 11 2019 | 9:01A | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
" The X570 Taichi AM4 motherboard from ASRock does incorporate the latest technologies and thanks to the latest AGESA microcode updates it does allow the Ryzen 3000 series to run at optimal boost speeds. While we consider that the latest AMD processors do run optimally at stock settings (by boosting depending on the usage conditions, which can be also named as automatic overclocking), enthusiasts can also use the UEFI settings for improving the system performance even more.

     Mon, Nov 11 2019 | 9:00A | Home Theatre | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Nvidia recently released an updated version of the Nvidia Shield TV and in this video I take a first look at the Pro version which comes in with a retail price of £199.99. This does make it one of the most expensive media streaming devices available, however it does come with plenty of extra features such as GeForce Now, NVIDIA GameStream, Dolby Vision and AI upscaling. A full review will be coming in the near future but first I decided to do an unboxing for my first impressions!

AOC 24G2U 24in 144Hz Gaming Monitor Review
     Sun, Nov 10 2019 | 4:03P | Monitors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Curved screens may be gaining traction, but there’s still plenty of reasons why you might want to opt for a more traditional flat monitor. Price is just the beginning, since curvature adds a premium. Panel type is another, because most curved screens use VA technology rather than IPS or TN, due to the fact that the latter are harder to bend while maintaining image quality. So there’s lots of life left in a standard 24in flat screen, particularly one like the AOC 24G2U that offers solid gaming abilities for a decent price.

HP Omen X 2S Review: A Sleek, Dual-Screen RTX Gaming Beast
     Sun, Nov 10 2019 | 9:02A | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
In the last 5 years, gaming notebooks have essentially reached performance parity with desktop systems and made it easier for gamers to experience their favorite PC games virtually anywhere, without losing out on image quality or performance. However, because most components perform similarly in any given form factor, manufacturers are constantly striving to predict what the next hot desirable feature may be, to help their devices stand out from the crowd. HP’s 15-inch Omen X 2S banks on dual screens being the next big feature and packs an innovative, two-display setup into a sleek, lightweight notebook...
