Club 3D USB 3.1 Type C Adapters –

Club 3D USB 3.1 Type C Adapters – In addition to our existing range of high quality Audio/ Video Adapters Club 3D is proud to announce a range of USB Type-C Adapters. In the first months of 2015 the USB Type-C connector was introduced. This completely new connector plug is smaller, reversible and capable of transferring more than data alone. It is expected that the USB Type-C connector will eventually replace the USB Type A and Type B connectors we have all been using over the past years. With the Type-C connector, the USB 3.1 standard was introduced as well. Compared to USB 3.0 the new standard offers twice the transfer rate of up to 10Gbps and allows for three essential features to be used over a single cable: Video, Data and Power. The possibility of connecting and powering your laptop, tablet or smartphone with a range of peripherals, monitors and other devices using only one cable is a significant improvement over the previous standards. It means the beginning of a new era with less cable clutter, higher transfer speeds, faster charging, and support for DisplayPort™ alternate mode which enables video signal transport up to 4K UHD resolution at 60Hz. It’s recognizable by the small and convenient, future proof connector plug which will be implemented in the vast majority of (mobile) devices you will own in the coming years.

Noctua NH-L9x65 Review

Introduction Noctua is renowned for their silent performance, but lately we’ve been seeing more products that fit into the small form-factor HTPC market over the ultra-enthusiasts monster performance market.

Here, Noctua is introducing a very nice, low-profile CPU cooler that fits the bill entirely for keeping an ITX style computer cool in it’s constrained case space. We know Noctua can make great coolers, but now we’ll see how well this small cooler stacks up. We’ll be finding out soon enough but before we start taking a closer look, let’s pause for a brief statement about who Noctua is and what they are passionate about.

Mionix Castor Gaming Mouse

Introduction We’ve seen several mice from Swedish company Mionix, and we’ve been impressed. The Naos remains one of the most comfortable mice I’ve ever grasped (admittedly, it’s my go-to daily mouse of choice), and we’ve seen models from Mionix that sport minor differences and improvements along the way. Why mess with a winning formula, it seems. One of the differences is certainly in terms of cost. It should come as no surprise that everyone doesn’t necessarily want to splurge for the flagship Naos, and for those who want the quality and features but a more affordable price tag, the Mionix Castor is what we’re looking at today. The Castor is a right-handed mouse, and while it captures the shapely essence of the vaunted Naos, it also seems to share some lineage from the impressive Avior, creating a subtle new shape that’s suitable for palm, claw, and fingertip-grip preferences. There are a couple other differences, such as a 10,000 DPI optical engine rather than laser, a simplified lighting and feature set, and a lower price tag than the premium Naos or Avior. Sounds good so far. Let’s take a closer look at the Mionix Castor and find out if it’s worthy your consideration.



INTEL’s Profit Drops, but are we Really Surprised?

It seems like every other day, there is another story surfacing that’s letting us know PC sales are slipping and the latest iteration of this is that INTEL’s profits are down. I can’t say that any of us would be surprised about this, but the fun part is trying to place our finger on exactly what’s going on. The most obvious reason is that no matter how anybody wants to slice it, the world economies have been doing terribly in the recent months. Economy will certainly hurt the ability of a company to grow, but at the same time, said companies can’t just sit there and point the proverbial finger at government regulations without noticing the three pointing back at them. I’m not going to analyze every fiscal decision INTEL has made, but I do believe that their design process on their architecture is not helping with their current woes. Many of us know about the Tick, Tock cycle that INTEL uses. One cycle brings out a new manufacturing process, then the next improves on that process via architecture. This concept in and of itself is a bit lame for consumers. It essentially guarantees that you’re out of date with in a year of purchasing a new product. Now most of us know that performance will hold up for a quite a bit longer, but it always leaves consumers feeling slightly afraid of pulling the trigger on a new product because something better could be just around the corner. This leaves us with the feeling that INTEL is trying to sq...
