New information about AMD’s Zen CPUs

New information coming from, in theory, an official route sheet from AMD has allowed us to see new details on AMD’s new Zen CPUs, a much waited generation that could be the revulsive that Sunnyvale’s giant needs.

Lately we have seen excellent gaming systems of all kinds, but one of the classics within the portable gaming world is definitely ASUS.

The new ASUS ROG G751 is their new generation with small improvements in design and it incorporates the latest technologies in the form of Haswell processors of four powerful cores, Nvidia graphics cards of Maxwell architecture, new storage systems and new latest generation screens in order to get a general result of excellent performance in a highly refined chassis.ASUS ROG G751JY-DH72X

BenQ XL2420G Gaming Monitor Review

Although NVIDIA’s G-SYNC technology has been among us for over a year, it hasn’t been until the last few months that we’ve started to see monitors specially designed to make the most of a reasonable price, always taking into account the fact that we’re talking about high quality peripherals aimed at a public range where price is not the most important variable. We’ve tested the new BenQ XL2420G and this are our impressions.

In spite of its clear “gaming” orientation, the new BenQ monitor displays a discrete and almost conservative esthetic, except for subtle parts in red. The panel fits very easily in one of the best supports we’ve seen in years, with height adjustment (130 mm.) and inclination (from -5°to +20°) and that incorporates solutions as practical as a cable conductor and a transport hook.

Along the bezel we find capacitive tactile buttons to control menus, the power button and the integrated IR emitter (necessary for 3D mode). Unlike other models, BenQ has situated it on the lower bezel, which may be a problem if we use bulky peripherals as a wheel or a joystick with throttle. The firm also includes the S-Switch, a control system where we can select between three predefined modes and navigate through the configuration menus more comfortably.
