It hasn't been that long ago since we last reviewed a multi-media wireless keyboard set from Gigabyte. In fact the KM7600 we reviewed back in May already was a first and seriously good indication that Gigabyte was tapping into a new market. That product was quite good for the money and today we'll be checking out a keyboard, more catered to our style and liking, a gamers keyboard.
Nothing wireless, everything wired to wipe out latency, customizable and programmable macro's, good weight responsive keys and looks that somehow resemble Ferrari's and Lamborghini cars. See the products as tested are offered in a variety of colors, Ferrari Black and Red, and Lamborghini Yellow. Now of course Gigabyte does not admit that they 'lend' that idea from the car makers licensing wise, but ... well you'll see the resemblance.
So the design concept was simple, make a cool looking keyboard targeted at gamers that actually qualifies for gamers in functionality and looks. It should appeal to you and be very functional. Gigabyte certainly succeeded as the K8100 as tested today will at the very least interest you. Functionality and looks is what it's all about with this 69 USD costing, Aivia K8100 keyboard.
Will it be able to compete with names as Razer and Logitech ? Well, let's find out. Shades on please -- we gotza bright & yellow one :)
We test and review the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 WindForce 3x OC edition. The graphics card comes witha factory overclock and the new WindForce 3X 2 Slot 450W fan sink with Triangle Cool fans, as they like to cool it. That would be three silent 80mm fans. Overall the card is almost as fast as a GeForce GTX Titan, 100% cool and 100% silent. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost OC WindForce 2X review
In this article we review the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost OC WindForce 2X with that OC for a factory tweak and the Windforce indicating a silent yet powerful two fan cooling solution. The product is customized with a new PCB, cooling and a few tweaks, it has 2GB of memory with both that memory and the core base-clock slightly overclocked. An tasty product at an interesting price in the lower segment of the mainstream market.
