    Fractal Design Define Nano S review: shrunk in the wash

    Large Mini-ITX cases: it sounds like a contradictory concept, but see more and more examples of this type of case being brought to market. In light of the aged Bitfenix Prodigy and the more recently discussed NZXT Manta, we will take a closer look at the Fractal Design Define Nano S. That is quite a mouthful of a name, but this is a product with a solid family history. Will the smallest in this family honour its predecessors?

    56 power supplies of 350-550 watt review

    Because graphics cards and processor manufacturers have an increasing emphasis on keeping the power usage as low as possible, you do not need a lot more than 450 watt for your high-end system. Therefore we take a look at 56 power supplies in this test; all of them are between 350 and 550 watt.

    4K Gaming PC - July 2016 After a few years in which little happened in the area of PC displays, the 4K revolution is finally taking place. Graphics cards have to render four times as many pixels to drive a 4K display, while the game textures are only getting more detailed. In short: you need real horse power to game in 4K. A fast processor and especially a graphics card is a must. However, the rest of the configuration needs to be balanced as well.

    The fact that you do not need a big system in order to get a powerful computer should not come as a surprise nowadays. There are a lot of Mini-ITX motherboard and Mini-ITX case manufacturers, with room for a large and therefore fast graphics card. One manufacturer boldly keeps offering an alternative in the form of compact barebones. The SZ170R8 is Shuttle’s latest model, a barebone for a high-end Skylake system. We put it to the test.

    4K Video Editing PC - July 2016 A few years ago, your PC just couldn't be fast enough for digital video processing. By now every average PC is able to process Standard Definition (PAL 720x576) as well as HD Ready, but technology doesn't stand still.
