Nvidia Volta release date, price, specs and performance
Best AMD gaming motherboard
An Intel Coffee Lake six-core rig which commits the cardinal sin of system builders
The temperatures were creeping up and up and, without the cooling kicking in as it did, the GPUs would have collapsed under the load. The manual step the fans were on essentially meant they remained at a specific speed no matter the temp.
I'm sure there will be a balance you can strike with the amount of fan profiling on offer (as I mention in the piece) but it is going to take a bit of effort on your behalf.
Scan’s new 3XS PC might be your best chance of getting Coffee Lake on your desktop this year

Without those leaked benchmarks you already know how the Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti performs
Intel Coffee Lake reviews, news, performance, and availability
I thought Gigabyte's Aorus X9 was a super quiet SLI laptop… until we actually turned the fans on

Microsoft's Classic Intellimouse is a retro hardware remake I can get behind
Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti release date, specs, and performance
AMD's Raven Ridge APU performs as well as a discrete Nvidia GPU
Ransomware attack on Toshiba means 400,000TB of SSD storage is missing
It's impressively quiet. I believe the Max Q spec is for gaming load to be 40dB or less.
The Asus Zephyrus sure is a slimline notebook, but it ain't no gaming 'laptop'
Best gaming mouse
Sadly Asus' all-core enhancement feature is limited to the K-series chips only. I was hoping it would enable us to run the 8400 at its single core 4GHz clockspeed all the time, but unfortunately not :(
Yeah, they seemed to have spent a long time getting feedback from the industry and their users, and I think it shows.
The HyperX Cloud Alpha sets a new gold standard for gaming headsets
Best PC controller
The Computer Base 4K benchmarks weren't run at Ultra settings, they were running at High.
But as I mentioned in the piece we cannot currently verify the results as our Vega samples are still being shipped back to us.
If you are going to post something like this why not back it up?
Aye, it's only two new games, but it's two of the biggest new titles released since Vega was. They may be the only two games where Vega outperforms its main rival, but only time will tell.
Still, kinda interesting though,eh? :)
AMD’s Vega beats Nvidia’s GTX 1080 by up to 21% in Shadow of War at 4K
Best SSD for gaming
Asus’ TUF Z370-Pro shows you don’t have to spend big on an Intel Coffee Lake board
Interesting. There's the potential that might explain the performance gap, but it seems MS haven't enabled RPM in the X Xbox X One X (X) so I'd guess Turn 10 wouldn't have gone to the trouble of adding it in to the PC version when it wouldn't get used in the console version.
I had to do a double take for your version of the console name, I enjoyed a hearty chortle afterwards. Thank you for that!
For the game though, Microsoft does seem to be putting more effort into the PC lately, plus since they created the base of the PC engine with Forza Apex, maybe the technical engineers had some spare time to play around with new ideas? Unless Nvidia cards are really experiencing a problem, just being DX12 doesn't seem like it makes sense because there are other DX12 titles and the discrepancy isn't near as large. Do you guys still have your test card? Would be interesting to see some comparison benchmarks of Forza: Apex to see if it's similar, maybe Halo 5: Forge and Halo Wars 2 as well.
Not wishing to prolong the sadness, but what was it that you liked about Raptr? I'm genuinely intrigued about what it gave you that the Radeon software doesn't.
Instant messaging, friend lists, profiles?
Haha, that would have been a better idea... I actually just bricked a second old board we didn't need by squeezing thermal paste into it. Felt so wrong doing it...
I can't...then... no!.....but?....why?
It's a tricky one. The T300RS has got the 1080° rotation (Logitech stops at 900°) and the slightly better force feedback, but it's a bit more expensive. The G29 (the Sony PS version over the Xbox G290) has more buttons, a nicer build quality and super stable pedals. Overall though I just give it to the Thrustmaster wheel, but only just.
