AMD’s E3 Press Conference, Fury X Launch and More

The computer scene has been notoriously absent from E3 until today. Does that mean it should be called E4? I guess not since it’s the Electronic Entertainment Expo. E3+C? I’m not sure, but amidst the announcement of numerous console titles, AMD was able to take the show floor and announce their new line-up of graphics cards. Reviews will give us the official verdict, but based on what I’m seeing, I think enthusiasts everywhere have plenty of reasons to be excited.

The other interesting bit is the launch prices of $649 and $549 respectively, which looks to be pretty fair considering the est...

Phanteks Enthoo Evolv mITX Chassis Review

Introduction Earlier this year we took a look at one of Phanteks Evolv mATX Chassis called the Enthoo Evolv. The Enthoo Evolv Chassis took home our Editors Choice award for its outstanding features and solid construction. Since that time, Phanteks has been hard at work developing new products and growing its already outstanding product line. Today we have a chance to take a look at a new addition to the line up. We have the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX Chassis. At first glance, the Phanteks Evolv ITX Chassis mimics its bigger brother with the obvious changes in size. But with the popularity of small form factor builds, miniITX cases have become a hot commodity, so its no surprise to us that Phanteks would want to move into this arena. Will the Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ITX meet the expectation of builders and live up the reputation of its larger sibling? Today we are going to take a closer look at the chassis and find out. But before we do that, let’s talk about who Phanteks is:   About Phanteks “Phanteks was founded from a group of engineers with a total of 20 years of international experience in thermal solutions. They paired up with a Dutch design team and established Phanteks in 2007.
