LanOC Reviews: AMD Ryzen 8000G Series

It’s been a surprisingly busy 2024 with a list of different GPU launches that were all announced at CES. AMD didn’t just announce the RX 7600 XT at CES however, they also introduced a new line of CPUs their Ryzen 8000G Series, and a few new SKUs in the older Ryzen 5000 Series as well for AM4 users. Today I’m going to check out two of the new 8000G Series CPUs, the Ryzen 7 8700G and Ryzen 5 8600G which will be hitting stores on the 31st. They are Zen 4 CPUs with upgraded integrated GPU capabilities including AI processing as well with an integrated NPU on both the 8700G and 8600G. Onboard graphics performance is an area that we always test and keep an eye on with included so I’m excited to see what AMD’s promise of “fastest built-in graphics in its class” will mean for actual gameplay so let’s dive in and see what they are capable of.

ThinkComputers: ASUS ROG Ryujin III 360 ARGB White Edition Liquid CPU Cooler Review

ASUS is definitely not a new name here at ThinkComputers, but this is the first time we will be taking a look at one of their CPU liquid coolers. The ROG Ryujin III 360 ARGB White Edition boasts a ton of awesome features that not only enhance its cooling performance, but also provide a great looking product with easy installation as well. From the 8th generation Asetek pump design, to the integrated VRM cooling, ASUS has really worked to make sure the Ryujin III improves upon the series' heritage. Throw in the magnetic ARGB fans, and 3.5" LCD display on the pump housing, and you've got a great looking cooler to boot.

LanOC Reviews: Sapphire Pulse RX 7600 XT OC

Last year when I took a look at the Sapphire Pulse RX 7600 I was impressed with Sapphire’s design which while not as small as the reference AMD design was still compact where most other aftermarket cards weren’t. That seems to be the same this time around with the launch of the RX 7600 XT and Sapphire sent over their new Pulse RX 7600 XT OC. It looks to have a similar compact design which should be a lot smaller than the XFX RX 7600 XT that I already took a look at, so I am excited to see if that is the case and find out how well it performs. The RX 7600 XT is targeted at 1080p performance and has doubled up on the VRAM of the original RX 7600 along with higher clock speeds. 1080p is still the most used resolution with 59% of Steam users using it, why spend even more for a high-end video card if you won’t be able to take advantage of the extra power? Today I’m going to find out if the Sapphire Pulse RX 7600 XT OC is the new sweet spot card, let’s dig in and find out!

eTeknix: Corsair K55 Core RGB Gaming Keyboard Review

Corsair has a rich history of fancy and often rather expensive gaming keyboards. Their flagship models can cost over £200, and while they're brilliant, they're not within the budget of every PC gamer! So what can Corsair offer at the other end of the scale? Well, that's where the Corsair K55 CORE RGB comes into play, a membrane gaming keyboard that comes in at just £39.98 on Amazon, making it very appealing for those who want to get some new Corsair hardware for their gaming PC, but don't want to, or even more so, don't feel the need to, spend
