E-Win Champion Series Gaming Chair Review

Introduction I’m a firm believer now that everyone who uses a computer heavily needs to own a good gaming chair for their station. It’s not because gaming chairs are cool, even if they kind of are, but mainly because they all seem to be built with heavy emphasis on ergonomics as well. There’s been little that has affected my lower back issues nearly as much as what having quality seating has done. Unfortunately, there has been numerous competitors cropping up in the market and a buyer can have a really hard time finding the right chair for the right price. At some point, you have to wonder if spending close to $1000 would be worth it, but most of us would be extremely skeptical of that.

E-Win Champion Gaming Chair Office Review

The value of a gaming chair is extremely straight forward. Allow the gamer to sit as comfortably as possible so one can game longer. That said, the descriptor of “gaming” really limits the scope of what these chairs can be used for. The simple fact is most gaming chairs are really ergonomic chairs, but the term gaming mostly applies to the aesthetic over anything else. Also, genuine ergonomic office chairs can be very expensive so thinking of adding a gaming chair to your work space is a brilliant and cost efficient idea. Check out the video below to not only see this idea in action, but to also see that E-Win is a great contender in this market as well! http://www.ewinracing.com https://www.ewinracing.com/champion-series/30-e-win-champion-series-ergonomic-computer-gaming-office-chair-with-pillows-bbf.html?utm_source=EDM&utm_medium=CPCP&utm_campaign=CP-BB3F&utm_content=XMAS If you want an additional 15% off, use promo code “PureOC” at checkout.

Volta May Dominate the GPU World: Nvidia Unveils the Titan V

I’m guessing HBM2 is the real deal since we’re finally getting the opportunity to see it in an Nvidia card. Also, I’m seriously doubting Nvidia will lose the highest performing GPU crown for quite some years to come. One thing’s for certain, this company has done an impressive job with each new architecture release and the new Titan V is just the latest to raise what already was a very high bar. It’s easy to dismiss marketing jargon in this day and age of hardware releases, yet the 9x performance increase in deep learning is still a pretty solid accomplishment. Deep learning won’t help the average user directly, but looking at the normal performance numbers indicates around a 25% performance leap from the Titan XP. Considering the increase in transistors and performance, it’s very impressive that the TDP is still at 250W. Just when we thought Maxwell and Pascal were enough to curb our enthusiast appetites, Volta shows that too much performance is never a problem in the computer world. The Titan V reminds me of what hardware releases used to be about. We may not get a release every 6 months, but we do get a sizeable performance increase and it turns out for most of us, getting two years to let the budget recover is much better for purchasing an upgrade. We’ll have to wait a bit longer for the gaming card releases, but Volta is something worth looking forward to. Check out Nvidia’s site for the rest of the details! https:...
