Gigabyte, Corsair and Intel held a press event in California on June 30th to show off some of their new hardware.

We were on-hand to check everything out, and have the details lined up for you here. First up, we have some video of many of the products...

Whether you have a $10,000 beast of a gaming rig or a hand me down that isn't any more powerful than a toaster, having the right input devices can make a significant improvement in your work and play. Mice in particular come in all shapes and sizes to meet anyone's comfort and performance needs. That bargain bin mouse may be fine for browsing cat pictures, but its cheap sensor and total lack of ergonomics may be holding you back from pwning n00bs like you deserve.To help step your game up we're checking out three new mice that recently slid across our desk: Tesoro's Sagitta Spectrum H6L Gaming...

When mechanical keyboards hit the PC gaming scene a number of years ago, it became clear very quickly that there was a preferred choice for switches: CHERRY. While CHERRY existed long before its switches found their way into gaming keyboards, the company has really skyrocketed in popularity in recent years as many top-flight peripheral vendors continue to revolve their product lines around the German company's switches. CHERRY's MX SPEED RGB Keyboard Switches It's become clear in recent years that just because CHERRY already offers a huge number of switches to peripheral vendors, there's still... Read more...
Although updated sales figures haven’t yet been released, and some initial reviews were less than stellar, if the movie is any indicator, EA’s Star Wars Battlefront is poised to be a resounding success in the gaming community. And with an expansion pack inbound, that will likely feature content that ties in with the Force Awakens, it’ll probably continue that success for quite a while. AMD has been offering free copies of Star Wars Battlefront to new buyers of Radeon Fury graphics cards since mid-November 2015 and will continue to do so through the end of this month. But with...

Love the tactile nature and accuracy of mechanical keyboards for PC gaming, but prefer to ditch the noise associated with them? Need an MMO mouse that accommodates your fat thumbs? Perhaps a new headset that thoughtfully uses LEDs on its microphone to indicate the status of various sound settings? If you answered yes to any of the previous questions, Corsair just unleashed some new weapons in their gaming arsenal that might fit the bill, including the STRAFE RGB Silent -- the world's first keyboard to incorporate Cherry MX Silent gaming switches. Into the VOID "One of the biggest complaints...

One of my favorite companies to watch out for at every CES is Corsair, as the company doesn't only offer a wide-range of products, most of what's seen is usually really solid in design and instills me with that "I WANT IT!" feeling. This year, the company has announced a new SSD, flash drives, a power supply, a budget chassis, and a couple of cooling products. For those yearning for an SSD with "no compromises", there's Corsair's Neutron XT. Available in sizes of 256GB ($150), 512GB ($270), and 960GB ($540), this Phison-based drive will deliver 560MB/s reads and 540MB/s writes.... Read more...
When you're on the path to becoming a power user, you begin to notice certain things that the average person might not. One of those is the difference between typing on a sweet mechanical keyboard with luxurious key action versus pounding away on a run-of-the-mill squishy plank that relies on mushy membranes to register your keystrokes. The difference may seem subtle to the uninitiated, though even casual typists can recognize that there's something inherently superior about typing on a mechanical keyboard, even if they can't pinpoint what exactly it is. Of course, we know it's the mechanical... Read more...

There are certain things that, once experienced, you can never go back to the way things were. Mobile phones, 30-inch monitors (and/or dual-monitors), and solid state drives all fall into this category. There's also a less obvious submission, one that sits right beneath your fingertips -- the keyboard. Not just any keyboard, mind you, but mechanical planks. Once you try one, there's no going back to a membrane-based keyboard. It's all about the switches, and some of the most popular are the Cherry MX, of which there are several different types. Cherry MX Blue, for example, are tactile and make... Read more...
