    Intel Core i7 8086K review: the best gaming-CPU, but not the best choice Last week, at Computex in Taipei, Intel introduced the Core i7 8086K Anniversary Edition processor to celebrate the very first introduction of the so-called x86 architecture, the Intel 8086, exactly 40 years ago. The new Limited Edition processor is the first Intel CPU with an official clock frequency of 5 GHz. That is very promising Read more

    Review - Tuesday 06/12/2018 - 11:59 PM

    The best CPU coolers: air and water coolers for every budget A good processor cooler is an important part of the computer. Besides appearance and size, there are two aspects that are important when choosing a cooler: noise production and cooling performance. These are two issues that are in fact at odds with each other, so the best cooler offers a balance between them. Which CPU cooler should you buy then? Read more

    Budget All-round PC - June 2018 The all-round PC is a PC with comprehensive features for around $800 - $900 that can do a little bit of everything. It should have enough speed and capacity to meet your needs for some time. Currently it can run all applications, and you're able to upgrade it with small future investments when you need more power or storage capacity.

    AMD A320 motherboards review: ideal for your APU! There's plenty to choose from when you're shopping for an AM4 motherboard socket. Many left the A320 chip set behind due to the lack of interesting AMD APUs, but since the launch of Raven Ridge such an affordable board has suddenly become quite attractive. We tested six AMD A320 motherboards, ranging in price from just over 60 dollars to 89 dollars. Read more

    To eat or to be eaten: Acer Predator X34P ultrawide G-sync gaming monitor review

    Review - Thursday 06/07/2018 - 11:59 PM

    To eat or to be eaten: Acer Predator X34P ultrawide G-sync gaming monitor review The Acer Predator X34P has it all: the extra wide 34 inch monitor has both a high resolution and a high refresh rate, with G-sync as the cherry on top. In doing so, the screen promises to be a worthy successor to the old Predator X34 without 'P' from 2016, which was basically the ultimate gaming monitor at the time. However, competition in the ultra-widescreen monitor segment has become fiercer than ever in recent years. Will the X34P be able to hold its own? Read more

    ASRock X299E-ITX/ac review: Skylake-X on mini-ITX?! While Intel's socket 2066 is not as large as the Threadripper-socket it is still special that ASRock can make a mini-ITX motherboard for it. On this unique board of 17 by 17 centimeters you can use an 18-core processor. The ASRock X299E-ITX/ac offers X299 in ITX format: a good idea or the ultimate concession? Read more

    CrossFire & SLI anno 2018: is it still worth it?

    Review - Tuesday 05/29/2018 - 11:59 PM

    If you wanted nothing but ultimate performance in games, CrossFire and SLI were the only options for a long time. DirectX 12 was intended to offer an alternative, but it doesn't seem to be the promised holy land for multi-GPU setups. That is why it is high time to take stock: is the combination of several video cards still relevant in 2018, or does the fairy tale of CrossFire and SLI have an unhappy ending? Read more

    Samsung C34H890 review: ultra wide 100 Hz alternative?

    Review - Sunday 05/27/2018 - 11:59 PM

    Samsung C34H890 review: ultra wide 100 Hz alternative? Since last year, Samsung has two monitors of 34” format in its range format, both with 3440x1440 pixels resolution and a refresh rate of 100 Hz. We discussed the C34F791 earlier, but not the C34H890. On paper, this is a business model, but since it shares many of the characteristics of the counterpart for consumers and is a bit cheaper, it also sounds like a very interesting option for the gamer looking for a super wide screen which will not cost too much. Whether they are well catered for with this ultra-wide screen, we will find out in this review. Read more

    Netgear Nighthawk Pro XR500 review: innovative gaming router Especially at a time when more and more games are 'online only', every gamer knows how important it is to have a reliable and fast connection to the servers of your favorite game. This is of course partly dependent on the internet connection you obtain from your provider, but also on the configuration of your own network. Your router is of crucial importance in this respect. The Netgear Nighthawk Pro XR500 is a router designed to optimize your gaming experience both hardware- and software-wise. That, at least, is the manufacturer's promise to us to subject him to our usual intensive testing procedure.   Read more

Internally, the ProLite XB2779QQS features the same panel as the 27 inch Apple iMac with Retina screen. The 5120 x 2880 pixel counting screen offers a very sharp display with 218 ppi. The exterior design is also a bit like an Apple monitor. Is the XB2779QS too good to be true, or a good deal? Read more

    For a long time, memory was one of the most boring components of a PC: you just had to have as much of it as possible; the specific type and speed were of little importance. Now those strips of RAM are suddenly one of the most talked-about parts. It's time for a thorough test. Read more
