Sennheiser Launches GSP370 Wireless Gaming Headset, 100 Hours of Battery Life

Sennheiser today launched the GSP370 gaming headset, which will allow you to immerse yourself in virtual worlds for as many as 100 hours between charges. Sennheiser have managed to improve power efficiency of the GSP370 over their current flagship, the GSP670, by more than five times - that one headset only lasts between 16 and 20 hours for each full charge. And this battery efficiency didn't come at the cost of maximum output levels - the 117dB SPL makes sure of that.

There's a noise-canceling mic in the headset, and memory foam pads appeal to comfort and extended gaming sessions. The GPS370 is compatible with PC, Mac, and PlayStation 4 (and Xbox as well with the headphone adapters or newer controllers) and is available on Sennheiser's website starting today for $199.95. Data transmission is taken care of by Bluetooth 5.0 (in a dongle adapter) and there's a micro USB charging cable in the box, which is enough to power the headset for usage even if its battery runs completely dry. Sennheiser will also include its GSA 50 headset hanger, which normally sells for $38, for free.

MSI Radeon RX 5700 XT GAMING Pictured

During this year's Gamescom, MSI had a booth set up showcasing multiple products among which they shown new model of Radeon RX 5700 and 5700 XT graphics cards. Boasting a beefy triple slot cooler with two of MSI's Torx fans, the card is designed to stay cool under all kinds of workloads. Interesting thing to note here is the addition of aluminium plate that spans over VRM area, presumably to help with cooling. Card is powered by two 8 pin connectors, indicating that PCB is clearly a non-reference, custom model with boosted VRM configuration.

For I/O, we are getting a standard set for RX 5700 series, meaning three DisplayPorts and one HDMI port. Frequency is undisclosed, however we can expect to see a slight factory OC. MSI has confirmed that the card will become available in a couple of weeks, precisely 21 days from now.

Rumor: Frank Azor to Join AMD as Chief Gaming Officer

According to Wccftech, Frank Azor, a co-founder, vice president and general manager of Alienware, will be joining AMD as Chief Gaming Officer. Starting on the third of July, Frank will be leaving Dell and will officially join AMD, as Wccftech suggests. The announcement from AMD should follow after third of July if that is the case. Frank has worked for Alienware/Dell for almost 25 years in its purpose to bring alien like gaming PCs to the market.
He posted on Alienware community website:

"Family, as you saw in Ray's earlier announcement, I'll be leaving Dell as of July 3 to take on a new challenge.
A little over 21 years ago, I met a couple of lunatics who had an idea they called Alienware. When I met them and learned about the company they were trying to build, I thought to myself, "This would be the coolest job ever." I was right, but none of us ever dreamed the brand would come this far - which is a result of all of you, your hard work and passion... ". You can read it fully here.

These speculations about the move to AMD aren't confirmed yet and the situation is likely to change, so take this with a grain of salt.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600 Review Leaks, Shows Impressive Performance

El Chapuzas Informático has posted an early review of the AMD Ryzen 5 3600 which was tested on a Gigabyte Aorus Gaming 7 WiFi motherboard, G.Skill FlareX DDR4 @ 3200 MHz and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti FE graphics card. Looking at the data presented, it becomes clear the performance on offer if real looks to be quite impressive. The site compared AMD's latest offering to the Intel Core i9-9900K and the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X with the Ryzen 5 3600 typically slotting in between the two and in some cases beating both. This is interesting to note as the Ryzen 7 2700X offers similar clock speeds to the Ryzen 5 3600 but the former has a 2C/4T advantage. Even so, the newer AMD CPU tends to outpace the Zen+ based Ryzen 7 2700X in multiple tests. In Cinebench R15, for example, the Ryzen 5 3600 had the lead in single-core performance while multi-core was held by the Ryzen 7 2700X. Cinebench R20 roughly mimics these results as well.

While memory latency was quite high 80.5 ns, it didn't seem to impact performance to any serious degree. In fact, in wPrime 2.10 32M running on a single core showed the Ryzen 5 3600 coming in just behind the Intel Core i9-9900K while being faster than the previous generation Intel Core i7-8700K, i7-8600K, and AMD Ryzen 7 2700X and 1700X. That said, the previous generation Ryzen processors were far slower here were as the Intel chips were still competitive. In the multi-core test, the Ryzen 7 2700X took a slight lead while the Ryzen 7 1700X was a bit slower than the Ryzen 5 3600. One interesting quirk of note was the lack of write speed on the memory with the Ryzen 5 3600 only hitting 25.6 GB/s which is quite a drop from the 47 GB/s seen on the Ryzen 7 1700X and Ryzen 7 2700X. However this could be due to the X470 motherboard being used or maybe an issue with sub timings on the memory, something that will need to be verified in future reviews.

Secretlab Launches 2020 Series Gaming Seats, Includes Game of Thrones Special Editions

For those who came in late, Secretlab is a Singapore-based company that specializes in gaming seats and chairs. Founded in 2014, they were among the very first to establish a foothold in the now-burgeoning gaming chair market, and arguably have led the way from day one. Our own Erasmia was left extremely impressed with their 2018-series Titan chair, to where it was selected among the best of 2017 in the product category as well. We were invited to a sneak peak launch event in New York City earlier this month, where Secretlab shed more light on their 2020 series updates to their popular Omega and Titan lineup.

These updates include over three years of rigorous research and testing, both internal at the company and in collaboration with independent research/testing institutes in Singapore. This level of testing has led to product certifications galore, something virtually unheard of in the gaming chair market. An immediate benefit is an increase in product warranty to 5 years, compared to the industry standard 1-2 years, and this is but one of several updates and improvements we will go over in more detail past the break.

MSI X570 MPG Motherboards Leaked: Gaming Pro Carbon, Gaming Plus

The folks over at Videocardz have treated us to a leak on MSI's upcoming X570 motherboards. The company's mid-tier MPG motherboards usually include the likes of the Gaming Carbon and Gaming Plus motherboards, and this round of motherboard development is no different. Both motherboards join leaked designs from other brands that showed active cooling being mounted on top of the chipset, a throwback to another era.

The leaked Gaming Plus is the lower-tier of the two leaked solutions of today, cutting on reinforcements on some expansion ports (such as the PCIe 16x slot). The Gaming Pro Carbon features a fancier design (with RGB lighting); the chipset hroud also serves as cooling for M.2 slots you can populate underneath (or so it seems). The Gaming Pro Carbon has more attention to detail on the placement of connectors such as SATA, and seems to have a slight advantage on the overall motherboard power delivery circuits, but these are just being eyeballed. One thing we can see is that while the Gaming Pro Carbon features MSI's Audio Boost feature, the Gaming Plus doesn't. Expect more details to be available closer to launch.

Thermaltake Announce Level 20 RGB Battlestation Gaming Desk for an Extraordinary $1,199

Thermaltake have announced the Level 20 RGB Battlestation Gaming Desk, the ultimate gaming desk for gamers (certainly not) on a budget. The Level 20 includes an RGB lighting strip on the edges of the desk, for when you are feeling that particularly kaleidoscopic fondness, and want to cut on turning on your ceiling's lighting. The desk is electrically adjustable (a feature I've always found slightly underwhelming in the premium/usefulness department), with memory for a total of four different height adjustments - particularly useful if you had Tyrion pass by your house in the intervening time.

The RGB is software controllable (Alexa and Razer Chroma are supported), and the entire surface is adequate for (computer) mice to roll through. Its height can be adjusted between 70 - 110 cm, and the top is a 165 cm x 75 cm affair, which should be more than enough space for everything you're cramming on top of your desk right now. And if you want this piece of kit in your life, rest assured that it only costs $1,199. It's a matter of value, on your mind, as a customer. Just beware the shipping doesn't end up more expensive than the Battlestation itself: this thing weighs 75 Kg inside the packaging.
