    Sharkoon Light² 200

    @pzogel any plans to review the Razer Viper? Id like to see what the click latency is with those optical switches it has. Light weight mouse are growing in population amongst esport crowds. Less weight means less force needed to move it and change directions quickly. Less fatigue over long...

    Unreal Engine 5 Demo to Require RTX 2070 SUPER GPU at Minimum for Smooth Gameplay

    I remember back when RAGE came out and the "megatextures" update made it so that textures were streamed by storage in real time as you played. If you had the game on mechanical the texture pop in and fps drops were all over the place. Moving to and SSD fixed most of those. But not all games do...

    Unreal Engine 5 Demo to Require RTX 2070 SUPER GPU at Minimum for Smooth Gameplay

    EK Expands on Quantum Kinetic TBE Series Products With DDC-Powered Variants

    EK Expands on Quantum Kinetic TBE Series Products With DDC-Powered Variants

    Ridiculous? How? The 2nd one is data straight from Swiftech. My point still stands even if the charts are dumb or my interpretation of them. D5 head pressure is kind of a non issue considering majority of them include a better top than the originals way back in the day, or you attach them to a...

    EK Expands on Quantum Kinetic TBE Series Products With DDC-Powered Variants

    That entirely depends on the top used on the pump. Most D5s now are attached to a reservior/pump top combo and head pressure difference between DDC and D5s become very small. D5s have higher flow rates as well. head pressure and flow rate are different metrics. DDC max PWM setting vs D5 Vario...
