Very little in the computer world has escaped the RGB craze the last few years and even something as small as the now humble M.2 drive couldn’t avoid it for long. While many M.2 drives are scattered around the motherboard where there is some free space, many motherboard manufacturers have settled on providing one slot it a clearly visible spot between the GPU and CPU. Viper Gaming has taken advantage of this with the new VPR100 RGB M.2 NVMe SSD. Featuring full-color zones of RGB lighting showing through an integrated heatsink, the VPR100 also provides maximum performance with more than 3300MB/s reads and 2900MB/s writes and capacities up to 2TB for even the largest game libraries.

One of the biggest issues with data is the constantly growing amount of it we need, and the need to have it with us. A byproduct of this is the need for speed. Those old USB 2.0 drives you had a few years ago are fine for a few documents, but transferring hundreds of gigabytes to or from them is something that takes seemingly eons in a time of instant data. Crucial gets around this problem by using the latest connectivity and internal architecture on its X8 series portable SSD. Capable of hitting transfer speeds of around 1GB a second, you don’t have to wait hours to take your large files along for the ride. It may even be faster than your internal storage! Taking advantage of USB’s faster 10gbps speeds and near-universal Type-C compatibility, the X8 can connect to anything and move data at the speed of you. Let’s take a little closer look and see how it does!

AMD’s RDNA architecture made quite the splash this summer with the launch of the Radeon RX 5700 family of cards, with the RX 5700XT bringing massive performance to the 1440p world at a great price. The problem is, most gamers don’t play at 1440p. If Valve’s Steam Hardware Survey is any indication, more than 75% of gamers are playing at 1080p or below, with around 65% of all gamers at 1920x1080p resolution. To capitalize on such a massive chunk of the market, AMD is releasing the next tier of the Radeon RX 5000 family with today’s launch of the Radeon RX 5500XT. Packing 6.4 billion 7nm transistors consisting of 1408 stream processors over 22 Compute units and 4GB of GDDR6 memory (with support for board partners to push this to 8GB), the Radeon RX 5500 XT is aimed squarely at the masses, and just in time to be a stocking stuffer for your favorite gamer in need of an upgrade. Let’s take a closer look!

Peripherals are easily one of the most subjective subjects in the PC world. Everyone has their own preferences, and they usually stick to them pretty closely. What isn’t contested however is the need for quality and reliability, as well as cost so you can spend your hard-earned cash on the latest Internals. For this reason, the Keyboard uses Cooler Masters ‘mem-chanical’ switches which provide many of the benefits like a 50M+ stroke lifetime with the cost-effectiveness of a conventional membrane keyboard. Throw in a matching mouse with a Pixart 5050 sensor and a snappy 1000Hz polling and you have everything you need at a cost anyone can handle. Let’s see how it does!
