NZXT Launches E Series Remember when NZXT was just a case and cooler company? Pepperidge Farm remembers. The company has upped their game in some incredible ways. First they introduced a motherboard, and now they have PSUs. Okay, they’ve had PSUs, but these ones are special. The E Series gives builders a choice between a 500W, 650W and 850W model. All three are rated with an 80 PLUS Gold efficiency, which quite frankly is more than enough for normal use. You might think NZXT is just jumping on a bandwagon, but that’s seriously not the case here.
Introduction Is Virtual Reality supposed to be the gold standard of immersion? VR is nice, but the reality for most of us is that we depend on a monitor for our computing experience above anything else. The good news is that panel technology is improving immensely, on top of being more affordable. The ViewSonic XG2701 gives gaming a huge improvement with a 144 Hz refresh rate and FreeSync technology. On the other hand, we still have to put up with a TN panel. The real question is how well ViewSonic does with the other feature to help offset the aging panel technology on this model. We’ll address that soon, right after a statement from the company.
