    Benq Zowie XL2735 en XL2540 review: gaming monsters A few months ago, Benq introduced the XL2735. A remarkable new gaming monitor with wqhd resolution and a 144Hz panel that uses a self-developed anti motion blur technique. Another new monitor, the XL2540, was added in November. This is the first native 240Hz gaming monitor available on the market. Both devices are meant for different target audiences, although one thing is certain: Benq is focusing on the power users. Of course we put these monitors to the test using our extensive test method. Read more

    AMD A12-9800 Bristol Ridge APU (socket AM4) review We were very hopeful about the Bristol Ridge series from AMD back in September when we released a preview on our Dutch site. We had also hoped that the processors would be available for purchase soon, however up until the day of writing the CPUs have yet to be released. We did find a few kits in Germany consisting of an AMD A12-9800 APU and an Asus A320M-C motherboard, which we tested to get an idea of the new APU series. Read more

    G.Skill Trident Z 16GB DDR4-3866 CL18 kit memory review A short while ago we discussed fourteen DDR4 memory kits from all segments, the fastest of which were clocked at 3200 or 3333 MHz.
