    ASUS RoG Swift PG258Q review: superlative gaming monitor thanks to 240Hz with G-sync

    Review - Wednesday 06/21/2017 - 11:59 PM

    ASUS RoG Swift PG258Q review: superlative gaming monitor thanks to 240Hz with G-sync We tested the first true 240Hz panel from AU Optronics a while ago in the Benq XL2540. That monitor was the ultimate monitor for diehard FPS gamers at the time, as a missed frame could be a possible lost chance for a headshot. Of course Asus has a certain reputation to keep up in terms of ultimate hardware for gamers and they undoubtedly were already working on making their interpretation of the ultimate 240Hz monitor just a bit more ultimate. The Republic of Gamers Swift PG258Q is the result of that labor. Spoiler alert: the Taiwanese manufacturer can be very proud of what they've achieved. Read more

    Intel Core i9 7900X Skylake-X & Core i7 7740X Kaby Lake-X review: rushed release raises the bar

    Review - Monday 06/19/2017 - 09:00 AM

    Intel Core i9 7900X Skylake-X & Core i7 7740X Kaby Lake-X review: rushed release raises the bar Today, Intel introduces five new high-end desktop processors, called the Core X-series. All CPUs utilize a new socket (Socket 2066), and have to be used in conjunction with motherboards that have a new chipset (Intel X299). The new CPUs are divided into two families, Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X. The now available top model has 10 cores, but Intel already announced that we can expect models with up to 18 cores in the future. We tested the top model from both series: the 10-core i9 7900X and the quad-core Core i7 7740X. Read more

    Iiyama G-Master Silver Crow GB2783QSU-B1 review: gaming with a silver crow

    Review - Sunday 06/18/2017 - 11:59 PM

    Iiyama G-Master Silver Crow GB2783QSU-B1 review: gaming with a silver crow The teamwork between product developers and marketing departments can lead to remarkable results. An example would be the Iiyama ProLite B2783QSU-B1 monitor, which we covered last year. A model that was meant for business users, but also turned out to have surprisingly good performance for gamers. That is not an obvious combination. The recently introduced G-Master Silver Crow GB2783QSU-B1 is, as the name and product package suggest, meant for gamers. Nevertheless, after having completed our tests we have to conclude that this model can also be used at an office desk. The similarities do not stop there... Read more

    AOC U3277PWQU & Philips 328P6VJEB review: the bar is rising It does not happen every day that we have to do a double take when looking at our test results because they are exceptional. It does happen, and even after verification these results stay the same: the AOC U3277PWQU and the Philips 328P6VJEB do not only distinguish themselves in terms of price, but also because of their excellent performance. If you thought that a 32-inch ultra hd-monitor was not for you, you should definitely reconsider now that these monitors are available on the market.  Read more
