AQIRYS CAPELLA Gaming Keyboard Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2022-09-23 read/post comments(0)

Thanks to the plastic construction and lack of mechanical switches, CAPELLA is quite light for a full-sized keyboard at only 880 grams. When typing or gaming, the keyboard remained silent, requiring an actuation force of about 52 gF, while the travel is set at 3.6mm. Given the included buttons and controls, the CAPELLA was not only thought for entry-level gaming but also for people which do watch lots of multimedia contents and let’s not forget productivity work as well! read more

Silicon Power 2x16GB DDR4 3200MHz CL22 SODIMM Memory Kit Review

Memory by stefan @ 2022-09-18 read/post comments(0)

By using the Silicon Power 2x16GB 3200MHz C22 RAM kit, the DH32U5 barebone can deliver a little bit more performance versus the previous 2666MHz tests but this strictly depends on the used application. The modules barely got warm during use so they could be successfully used in more restricted airflow environments, while the kit does offer enough capacity for most user applications. read more

LattePanda 3 Delta 864 Single Board Computer Review

Others/All-in-one PC by stefan @ 2022-09-11 read/post comments(0)

The new LattePanda 3 Delta does offer good mainstream performance for the low power it uses in full load, while remaining very silent even during consistent loads for long periods of time. The mini-PC can be used as-is by taking advantage of the pre-installed Windows 10 OS or by upgrading to Windows 11 or even erasing the whole partition and moving to Linux. This was thought as a development platform for tinkerers thanks to the included Arduino ATmega32U4 and is compatible with hundreds of sensors and actuators. read more

Shuttle XPC slim Barebone DH32U5 Review

Others/All-in-one PC by stefan @ 2022-09-05 read/post comments(0)

Given the included Intel Core i5-1135G7 CPU on the DH32U5 barebone, we are getting great performance for an ULV SoC, while keeping power consumption and heat at bay. While we have tested the mini-PC with a 32GB 2666MHz kit, the supported maximum frequency is 3200, which may also bring some extra boost to the table. Versus the DS20U5 which featured a Comet Lake-U Core i5-10210U fanless solution, the 11th Gen SoC does offer quite an impressive boost in the iGPU department as well via the Intel Gen 12 Xe and its 80 EUs. read more

Silicon Power UD90 M.2 2280 1TB PCIe 4.0 SSD Review

Storage/SSD by stefan @ 2022-08-29 read/post comments(0)

The Phison E21 controller paired with Micron’s 176-layer TLC NAND does result in a good mainstream drive in terms of performance, even surpassing Silicon Power rated speeds, which operates at decent temperatures in normal operation. However, if your projects do imply writing very large sequences of data at once, the drive will heat up to about 80 degrees Celsius while using the stock thin graphene heatspreader. In that case, we will surely recommend a custom heatsink or simply installing the drive on a motherboard with an integrated cooling system. read more

AQIRYS T.G.A. ALPHA Gaming Mouse Review

Others/Mice & Keyboards by stefan @ 2022-08-22 read/post comments(0)

The AQIRYS T.G.A. ALPHA improves on the former T.G.A. by providing customization to the max and offering an even lighter chassis. After customizing the mouse on our liking, we ran some Guild Wars 2 sessions, where the lightweight design did really help while doing vistas and Hero points, while the tracking was impeccable. The mouse did also perform great in Escape Academy, but also while playing Guardians of the Galaxy. read more
