ENDORFY Omnis Pudding Blue Gaming Keyboard Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2024-05-24 read/post comments(0)

Omnis Pudding Blue has an unique signature thanks to the Kailh Blue mechanical switches, with that extra click noise, being no much heavier than the MX Reds. Because of the extra noise aspect, using these at work may disturb a bit nearby colleagues, so you should go with another switch choice in enterprise environments instead. We have tried the keyboard to type a few documents but also game in titles such as The Crew Motorfest, Fallout 76 and Escape Simulator; thanks to the extra key feedback, Omnis Pudding Blue is very precise and we did not need any time to get used to as with MX Speed. read more

Team Group MP44S 1TB M.2 PCIe 4.0 2230 SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2024-05-19 read/post comments(0)

The Team Group MP44S 1TB drive does offer entry-level to mainstream performance due to the use of QLC 176-layer Micron flash and not TLC, exposing the same weakness we have seen before with other drives as soon as the pSLC has been fully filled, from our estimation a size of about 240GB. While the lowest transfer rate is about 70MB/s, it should be okay in systems such as Steam Deck or ASUS ROG Ally, when used mainly for storing lots of games. read more

Patriot Viper VP4300 Lite 1TB M.2 PCIe Gen4 x4 Gaming SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2024-05-12 read/post comments(0)

The MaxioTech MAP1602A along with YMTC Xtacking 3.0 NAND combo performs well even when dealing with lower capacity drives as the Patriot Viper VP4300 Lite 1TB, succeeding write rates over 900MB/s even when the pSLC cache has been fully filled. It makes use of HBM instead of DRAM caching, while the heatspreader does help with heat evacuation to permit operation in environments with less than ideal airflow, such as the PS5. read more

Silicon Power XPOWER Zenith RGB 2x32GB DDR5 6000MHz Memory Kit Review

Memory by stefan @ 2024-05-07 read/post comments(0)

The XPOWER Zenith RGB DDR5-6000 64GB memory kit from Silicon Power does impress regarding total capacity, tighter timings used for both XMP and EXPO profiles but also with the fact we can overclock the modules further in order to obtain some extra performance. The RGB lighting offered by the modules is not tied to a specific platform, but supports most known motherboard utilities: BIOSTAR was not listed as compatible, but their utility could control the modules just fine! read more

AQIRYS ALYA 2.0 Wireless Gaming Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2024-05-05 read/post comments(0)

After fully charging the headset, we started listening to different YouTube videos, watched a couple of movies but also played a couple of sessions in NFS Unbound, Fallout 4, Minion Masters and Dead Island Definitive Edition; we have noted an improvement regarding high and mid frequencies, which resulted in clearer voices, while maintaining a good representation of bass, ideal for a gaming headset! The battery capacity has been also doubled with the new revision, allowing up to 50 hours of usage from a single charge, while the 4-hour charge time remained the same, which is great! read more

Crucial 64GB Kit (2x32GB) DDR5-4800 SODIMM Memory Kit Review

Memory by stefan @ 2024-04-28 read/post comments()

After a rather long initial boot time for training purposes, our Lenovo Legion Pro 5 16IRX8 laptop loaded Windows OS successfully and the test results were surprisingly good overall, in many cases exceeding the performance of the previously tested Silicon Power kit. The capacity is the main highlight for the Crucial DDR5-4800 64GB SODIMM kit, allowing for complicated and memory-intensive processes to be ran at the same time, such as virtual machines, encoding and rendering tasks and so on. read more
