SteelSeries Arctis Nova 3 Gaming Headset Review

Audio/Others by stefan @ 2022-10-03 read/post comments(0)

Compared to the previous Arctis models, the Nova 3 seemed lighter as soon as we have started wearing it, while keeping a high comfort level. After adjusting the settings with our preferences via the Engine module, we started listening to several music videos on YouTube, vlogs but also watched some TV shows; the sound is great regarding lows, mids, while the crisp highs allow voices to be optimally rendered. Regarding games, we did play Forza Horizon 5 where car engines were a joy to listen, along with the nice soundtrack which complements the experience; in Warframe, the sound of the weapons were well represented, along with the screams of despair when slaying foes. read more

Silicon Power XD80 M.2 2280 2TB PCIe 3.0 SSD Review

Memory by stefan @ 2022-09-25 read/post comments(0)

The new XD80 2TB version from Silicon Power is very interesting, since it does not come with the previous controller but retains the same internal product code. As we have noted from the test results, the drive trades punches in terms of performance with the 1TB version while blank, but when filled to about 60% of its capacity, it falls a bit behind. We think that this can be attributed to the Realtek RTS5762 controller, which operates differently but unfortunately not a lot of info is available online about it. read more

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
