Asus X399 ROG Zenith Extreme Unboxed Ahead of Launch

As is usually the case with hardware products these days, it is hard to keep confidential details out of the public eye. With NDAs themselves becoming less rigorous in terms of what is covered and what is not, perhaps it was appropriate that someone over on Chiphell shared some pictures of the upcoming Asus X399 Zenith Extreme motherboard which supports AMD's upcoming Ryzen Threadripper platform. Videocardz were on hand to archive the pictures for everyone in the meantime.

Based on what we know so far, the Asus Zenith Extreme looks to be the only E-ATX form factor motherboard to be revealed in four days time (although MSI is conspicuously absent in that preview), and the pictures we have confirm this. An Asus rep also confirmed that the Zenith Extreme will share an identical power delivery to their X399 Rampage VI Extreme, meaning we finally have a like-for-like treated flagship motherboard on the red side after what seems like ages- especially combined with the announcement of the X370 ROG Crosshair VI Extreme as well.

Kingston 32GB DataTraveler microDuo 3.0 Review

Given the extremely small size and the ability to connect via USB 3.0 and microUSB, the Kingston 32GB DataTraveler microDuo 3.0 is definitely a handy little flash drive to carry around. If your mobile device supports USB OTG (On-The-Go) you will be able to sync or backup your files with ease, and perhaps you could use it to free up some valuable storage space on your phone or tablet.

Logitech G433 7.1 Wired Surround Gaming Headset Review

Those that keep up with current events in the tech space will notice that the timing of this review is coincidental as Logitech recently announced the acquisition of gaming headset maker ASTRO Gaming which is a big win for them. ASTRO Gaming made some of the best gaming headsets on the market so Logitech gets a nice boost in that department. However, at the present we have their G433 7.1 Wired Surround Gaming Headset sitting here begging to be played with, so we'll oblige and get to it...

MSI Radeon RX 580 Gaming X 8GB Review

The last hurrah of the RX 580. The AMD Radeon RX 580 has been launched to catalyse interest in the lull between the red team's Polaris and Vega GPU architectures. Essentially an overclocked RX 480 card in all but name, AMD and its add-in board (AIB) partners target gamers who play at high-framerate 1080p, or 1440p with the preferred 60Hz refresh rate. At the time of writing, RX 580 GPU stock is in constraint, hampered by generally low volume in the market that has, in recent months, been taken up by cryptocurrency miners with glee. You'd do well to find many RX 580 8GB cards on the south side of £300, in stock, any time soon.

The original Draconem is made of tough aluminum and integrated a mouse bungee.

VisionTek SoundTube Pro Wireless Speaker

Portable speakers is an area, like keyboards and mice, and for a while SSDs everyone seems to have their own model. Even VisionTek who I would normally associate with video cards has gotten into the market. They have their SoundTube Pro Wireless Speaker with a pill like shape only with a large grill across both the front and back. So they sent one over, curious what we thought of it so today I’m going to see what it is all about and find out if it is a good pickup to take out with you this summer while you are enjoying the weather.
