    AMD Ryzen 2 & X470 review: Ryzen 5 2600X, Ryzen 7 2700 & 2700X + 6 X470 motherboards AMD's 2nd generation Ryzen processors have arrived! AMD presents Ryzen 2 (code name Pinnacle Ridge) as a major improvement, with many optimizations. We have, of course, ran some tests to find out what those improvements are. How fast are these CPUs compared to Intel? Has AMD made the right changes? We set to work with the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X, AMD Ryzen 7 2700 and AMD Ryzen 5 2600X.

    Review - Sunday 04/22/2018 - 11:59 PM

    ASUS ROG Strix Scar Edition: finally a really fast screen In gaming every second counts, a moment too late and it’s game over. This certainly applies to fps-focused games such as Counter-Strike and Overwatch. ASUS plays cleverly into this with its new Scar edition notebooks and we tested the 17” model - the ASUS Strix Scar GL703VM-EE099T, a laptop with a price tag of around 1850 euros and a super-fast screen.

    Dell XPS 13 (9370) review: luxurious workhorse

    Review - Tuesday 04/17/2018 - 11:59 PM

    Dell XPS 13 (9370) review: luxurious workhorse Since Dell renewed its XPS 13 series in 2015 with an inventive design, these laptops have been among the most desirable on the market. The formula: a unique design with extra narrow screen edges, a thin and light casing, fast hardware and a good battery life. With this combination, the XPS 13 still enjoys great popularity, but competition is increasing. That's why Dell showed a 'completely renewed' XPS 13 at the CES last January. If you see this XPS 13 (9370) next to the old model, then at first glance hardly anything seems to have changed. Is the new version convincing? Read more

    Corsair K68 and K68 RGB gaming keyboards review: Mechanical and spill proof With a great sense of drama, Corsair outlines the situation for which the K68 can offer a solution in the press release. In the heat of the battle, when an enemy suddenly appears, you pick up a glass of a beverage. With a quick press of the wasd buttons youvanquished your opponent, but you spilled some of the drink on the keys. The Corsair K68 and K68 RGB feature a layer of synthetic rubber under the keys. In this way, the new offspring in the Corsair family should be able to withstand accidents, which could be fatal for other keyboards. Read more

    Review - Sunday 04/08/2018 - 11:59 PM

    Gaming in large format: Asus ROG Strix XG32VQ review Asus, market leader in the field of gaming monitors, was laying low for a while. Success stories like the MG279Q and PG348Q were not followed-up until recently. Now the manufacturer is finally back with three new screens. The ROG Strix XG32VQ discussed in this review combines a 32” WQHD VA panel with a high refresh rate of 144 Hz. This means that the screen is not unique - other manufacturers like Samsung, LG and AOC have produced gaming monitors based on the same recipe. The XG32VQ looks good next to the competition, in any case - whether the monitor's performance also stands out, you can read in this review. Read more

    Corsair K63 and K63 Wireless Gaming Lapboard review: PC-gaming on your lap Wireless and mechanical: it is a combination that is currently featured on very few keyboards. Corsair introduced a version of its K63 gaming keyboard at the CES in January, which works without a cord, the K63 Wireless keyboard.

The manufacturer has also realised this: in addition to the keyboard, an accessory came onto the market which enables you to use it on the couch, the K63 Wireless Gaming Lapboard. In this review we look at both products. Read more

    Affordable gaming monitor update: AOC G90-series review The recent introduction of AMD's Raven Ridge processors enables building gaming PCs at a particularly low price point, good news for the gamers with a modest budget. Of course, an affordable PC also includes a screen for which you don't have to plunder your bank account. Preferably one with FreeSync, because the new AMD APUs are now a default. Nowadays you have a number of interesting models to choose from, and since a couple of weeks ago, a few more. AOC introduced its new entry-level gaming range - the G90 series. We tested the AOC G2590PX, G2590VXQ and G2790PX and here is what we can report. Read more
