DIRT 4 Review
     Thu, Jun 22 2017 | 8:25P | Games | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Codemasters are back with DiRT 4, released on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Following in the footsteps of DiRT Rally, they’ve decided to step away from the hardcore driving required by DiRT Rally and instead offer a much more accessible platform for those hoping to equip the knobbly tyres and hit some corners at maximum attack.

Asus Prime X299 Deluxe @ LanOC Reviews
     Thu, Jun 22 2017 | 8:05P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
So yesterday I took a look at the controversial Core-X CPUs from Intel. One of the best parts about a new enthusiast chipset and CPUs though are all the amazing motherboards that come along with them. During Computex, all of the boards were shown off but availability right before the launch was tight so the only board to come in time was the Asus Prime X299 Deluxe. Being a Prime board it isn’t super flashy but Asus didn’t skimp on the features at all. On top of being packed full of anything you can ask for the board even has unexpected features like a Wireless AD adapter in addition to the standard a/b/g/n/ac adapter and it even has a what they call LiveDash, a small display that is customizable and goes well beyond the standard LED post indicator. So today I’m going to try to get through all of the features of the Prime X299 Deluxe and see what else Asus is hiding.

AGESA 1.0.0.6 Update tested - DDR4-3200 easy
     Thu, Jun 22 2017 | 8:04P | Memory | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
I’ve been lucky enough to start toying with Ryzen months before the actual launch took place and already by then it was clear as day that this platform would require a lot of additional tweaking from AMD as well as from the motherboard vendors if we were to ever see what it’s really capable of. Back then memory compatibility was the least of the problems the platform hat do deal with. Even getting the thing to post was already a challenge of its own not to say changing values in the BIOS. In fact setting hex-values in the BIOS is something I used to do when I was a teenager, which is quite a while ago - actually.

MSI X299 Gaming Pro Carbon AC Preview
     Thu, Jun 22 2017 | 8:03P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The X299 Gaming Pro Carbon AC is a new high-end motherboard from MSI. Compared to what could be seen as the predecessor, the X99A Gaming Pro Carbon, MSI apparently chose to reposition the Gaming Pro Carbon model in their portfolio more towards the high-end segment. Therefore you find many interesting features on this board such as two M.2 slots and an extensive RGB lighting implementation.

ASUS PRIME X299 Deluxe

Posted by: STAFF
Guru3D.com - the Guru of 3D -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Review: ASUS PRIME X299 Deluxe We put the X299 Prime Deluxe from ASUS to the test. This motherboard in black and white accents with a small embedded LCD display is awesome looking . It's not just about the looks though as the X299 motherboard can house Kaby-Lake-X and Skylake-X processors, but also is injected with a lot of extra features. We'll test it with a Core i9 7900X.

ASUS Prime X299-Deluxe motherboard
     Thu, Jun 22 2017 | 8:02P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Instead of using more traditional frequency ranges like 2.4GHz and 5.0GHz like we've seen from Wi-Fi for so many years, 802.11ad uses frequency in the unlicensed 60GHz spectrum. Without getting too technical about RF technology, essentially this means that 802.11ad is capable of extremely high bandwidth rates, but cannot penetrate walls with line of sight between devices being ideal. In our testing, we even found that the given orientation of the router made a big difference. Rotating the router 180 degrees allowed us to connect or not in some scenarios."
