Today I had a chance to review EVGA’s flagship GTX 1060 in its FTW+ Gaming ACX Video card. This card has the updated ACX 3.0 Cooler, a better power delivery area/PCB, as well as the highest clocks of EVGA’s GTX 1060 lineup. Take a read below and see what features it brought and how it performs in our testing suite!
Hot off the presses: G.SKILL just launched the newest addition to the gaming peripheral family in the RIPJAWS KM570 MX keyboard, which was unveiled earlier this year at Computex. Featuring Cherry MX switches, seven different lighting effects and fully customizable settings, the RIPJAWS KM570 MX should be able to satisfy gamers looking for a new toy.
With 2016 coming to a close, we have seen the continual decline in price per gigabyte for solid state drives over the past several years. Speeds have reached their maximum through the SATA3 6Gbps ports so performance differences between most drives can only be seen in benchmarks. ADATA has had a few SSDs out in the past. Their latest, the ADATA Ultimate SU800, is their first foray into 3D NAND and promises to deliver a higher storage density, efficiency, and reliability. Let’s see what it is made of and how the tests shake out!
These days, who doesn’t like water cooled computer parts? It’s a good thing too, EVGA’s latest version of the flagship NVIDIA GTX 1080 has a built-in AIO cooler. Coming in with a hefty overclock and the FTW PCB, this should be a real contender on the performance side as well. What do you say we strap it to the bench and put the EVGA GTX 1080 FTW HYBRID GAMING through the paces?
We have arrived at the second part of the Silverstone fan review (part 1 was the review of 140 mm Silverstone fans). 120 mm fans can be used as case fans, heatsink fans and radiator fans. These are all PWM fans so they can be used in all three applications. Because they can be used in all three, we test them in the three kinds of situations. If it sounds like a lot of testing, it was. But now we know where these Silverstone fans fit into the 120 mm universe. So let’s get out our telescopes and start looking.
Today we get to take another look at a GTX 1060. This time it is from our friends at Gigabyte. This go around they have sent us their top of the line 1060 in the Xtreme Gaming 6G. If you remember our review of the GTX 970 Xtreme Gaming, the card was certainly a beast. Being a little down the pecking order, I am not sure what this Xtreme version will deliver, but if its anything like previous versions, it should be worth it for a lot of users. Let’s take a look and see what features were brought forward and how it performs!
