ASRock Z370M-ITX/ac Review
With the Z370M-ITX/AC, ASRock has a new mini-ITX motherboard in its portfolio, which comes with a very reasonable feature mix and an attractive price point. There is for example an M.2 slot, two Intel Ethernet ports and a WiFi AC module. In addition the layout has been well thought with a CPU socket that isn't too close to the PCIe slot.

Corsair K68 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
Corsair Gaming outs a new model in their keyboard line, the dust, and water resisting K68 RGB version has been fitted with Cherry MX red switches. The K68 RGB is the successor of the regular K68 model in terms of the overall basis and concept, but it adds RGB lighting per key configurable with full RGB LED lit keys that can be animated and profiles. Also, if you are a bit messy around your desktop and don't wanna ruin your keyboard by accidentally spilling coffee over it, K68 is dust and spill resistant.

Destiny 2 review: benchmarks on 25 graphics cards
Call of Duty: WW2 is not the only important game that Activision have released this autumn. Destiny 2 is an action multiplayer developed by Bungie, which takes place in far in the future of humanity. There is only one city remaining for the humankind and it is being fought over against aliens. We have measured this game thoroughly with 25 graphics cards, in three resolutions and two levels of settings. We have also looked at SLI/Crossfire and CPU scaling.

GooBang Doo ET-8178 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review
While there is no chance that the name is familiar to you, GooBang does have a number of products listed on Amazon and has been trading for at least a couple of years. The company’s web site itself is tragic, so we had no idea what to expect when offered the ‘Doo’ keyboard. In their own words, this product has been created for demanding gamers, “Don’t let yourself get caught with a slow and mushy membrane keyboard”. With no expectations, we set about evaluating this TKL RGB product.

Origin PC Millennium Gaming Desktop Review: Custom Chassis, Blinding Speed
Origin PC has been making the case for buying a premium PC from a boutique builder, ever since its founders set up shop in Florida nearly a decade ago. A little more recently, Origin PC started quite literally making the case, designing a custom chassis for its Genesis (full-tower) and Millennium (mid-tower) desktops that were first introduced in 2014. We are now in 2018 (barely) and to drive home the pun, Origin PC is still making the case (get it?) for these desktop lines.

With a new year came an opportunity for Origin PC to refresh these desktops, and that is exactly what it did, both inside and out...

The 50-game GTX 1070 Ti SLI Review
Enthusiasts are looking forward to NVIDIA’s next generation of GPUs as a cryptocurrency mining boom is driving the prices of video cards way up. However, whenever there is a boom it is usually followed by a bust, and perhaps inexpensive used and even new Pascal video cards may become available in large quantities before too long.

Some gamers may be tempted to wait for the next generation’s highest-end video cards by buying a second GTX 1070/1070 Ti/1080/1080 Ti for SLI as an interim solution, and skipping the second-tier next-generation cards that may be offered first. How well does Pascal SLI scale and is it worth buying a second video card for SLI if and when they become reasonably priced?

Various AMD Ryzen Raven Ridge Models Put Through 3DMark
Ahead of its February 12 launch, various models of AMD Ryzen "Raven Ridge" APUs, in both their notebook and desktop iterations, were put through 3DMark, which is perhaps the best way to put AMD's combination of its latest CPU and GPU architectures, to the test. Pictures also surfaced on Reddit, of the PIB boxes of the Ryzen 3 2200G and Ryzen 5 2400G, highlighting their "silver band" demarcation from the rest of the Ryzen processor lineup. This silver band features prominent Radeon Vega graphics branding, indicating that the model is a "Raven Ridge" APU.

Armed with 704 "Vega" stream processors spread across 11 NGCUs, the Radeon Vega 11 integrated graphics core of the Ryzen 5 2400G is AMD's fastest integrated graphics solution by far. It's also the fastest integrated graphics solution fully integrated with the CPU silicon (unlike, for example, the Core i7-8705G being a multi-chip module). The entire Ryzen "Raven Ridge" APU lineup was put through 3DMark 11 "Performance" preset, by someone with access to all of them. The 2400G leads the pack with 5,162 points, and a graphics score of 5,042 points. The 2200G, which features 512 stream processors, and lacks SMT, manages 4,151 points, with 3,950 points graphics score. The 2400G scores somewhere between the desktop RX 550 and the RX 560, which makes it possible for you to run "Player Unknown's Battlegrounds" at 900p or even 1080p with some details dialed down.
