With such a wide range of GPUs on the market today, it can be hard to make an educated choice on what GPU is right for you. Sure, the higher-end cards get plenty of coverage. However, what about the more budget oriented cards? Everyone knows a 1080 ti will destroy anything you throw at it, but what about its smaller brother, the 1060? The card I think is one of the most under rated cards on the market today, taking a back seat to the impressive performance of the 1070. ASUS recently sent us their GTX 1060 OC Edition, with 6 GB of GDDR5 RAM running at 9 Gbps. In theory, this card should have enough power to run any game, at high settings. So, we put the ASUS GTX 1060 OC to the test. Can it handle newer titles, at higher resolutions, or will this card be stuck running 1080p? Let’s see how it did.

Quality keyboards today don't always have to come with RGB lights to make them desirable.

The Trident Z RGB offers the same brushed black aluminum finish on one side with the gunmetal gray brushed black aluminum finish on the other as the original Trident Z did, however G.Skill added a something special. That something special is a RGB lit bar running along the top of each module. The RGB lighting is controllable via G.Skill’s own software or with Asus’s Aura software.
Keyboards and mice to a gamer are like the shield and sword a fighter uses. Every computer user needs the right equipment to “take to battle”. Choosing your equipment is sometimes trial and error, not every keyboard is made equal. With all the different styles and choices of keys alone, picking one best fitting your needs may be a bit formidable. Thankfully here at ProClockers we have the task of testing them out and letting our readers know what is a good choice for them. G.Skill has sent us there Ripjaws KM570 RGB keyboard to test out to see if this is what we would take to battle! This G.Skill Keyboard is simple yet functional and includes some important features that will meet the standards of most PC users.
The enthusiast community has been waiting for one card since the announcement of Pascal, and that card is the new GTX 1080 Ti. This was in hopes for a repeat of the performance gap between the Titan X and the previous Ti card. With the latest performance numbers, the GTX 1080 Ti proves it was a card worth waiting for. Since the Founders Edition 1080 Ti was released to the public, several companies have released their own versions of the 1080 Ti with custom PCBs and coolers. One of those companies seems to stand out more than the rest, and that company is GIGABYTE, and their new line of AORUS Motherboards and GPUs, which brings us to today’s review of the GIGABYTE AORUS GTX 1080 Ti. With a few different 1080 Ti SKUs, GIGABYTE has offerings from the Founders Edition card, up to their flagship AORUS GTX 1080 Ti XTREME Edition. In this review, we’ll be looking at the XTREME Edition and seeing how it compares to the AORUS GTX 1080 Ti Standard Edition. So, let’s get into the review.
The new X299 platform brings a number of new features and enhancements over the previous X99 platform. First and foremost is the ability to utilize the new Skylake-X and Kaby Lake-X 4-18 core X series processors via the new LGA 2066 socket. There’s added support for Intel Optane technology with Rapid Storage, faster throughput times thanks to DMI 3.0. 30 I/O lanes with support for up to 24 PCIe lanes, eight SATA 3.0 ports, and 10 USB 3.0 ports. Overall it’s a nice step up from the X99 chipset.
The new X299 platform brings a number of new features and enhancements over the previous X99 platform. It also brings with it a new line of processors. They range from 4 cores all the way up to 18 cores. Skylake-X handles the 6 core to 18 core variants, while Kaby Lake-X handles the 4 core models.
