GIGABYTE GTX 950 Xtreme Gaming 12

Last month, GIGABYTE introduced a brand new series under its wing called Xtreme Gaming which is aimed towards gamers and enthusiasts alike. Given the target market, one might expect that the Taiwanese company would kick-start the series with a high end product.

Instead, GIGABYTE decided to release a graphics card that is based on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 – a card that is meant for the mainstream market. Then again, there are indeed a couple of things that separates the GTX 950 Xtreme Gaming from other GTX 950 graphics cards by GIGABYTE. In fact, maybe even other GTX 950s out there.

Lightning Review: BenQ XR3501 35-inch Ultrawide Curved Gaming Monitor

by Andrew Cheng · 1 week ago · No Comments · 1.2k views


Ultrawide curved gaming monitors have been becoming more common in recent years, but none of them are quite like the BenQ XR3501. As the world’s first curved monitor with a 2000R curvature, it’s the most “curvaceous” monitor out on the market now. This basically means the XR3501 should provide a more immersive experience as it has a more extreme degree of curvature than its competitors. That being said, with a retail price of RM3,999, is it worth the money?

by Andrew Cheng · 2 weeks ago · 12 Comments · 10.9k views


When Xiaomi announced the Mi 4i as a flagship device, more than a few eyebrows were raised. While it offers plenty value for money, the Snapdragon 615 processor puts it more comfortably as an upper mid-range device.

Enter the Xiaomi Mi 4c. While it shares the same design as the Mi 4i, it is powered by a superior Snapdragon 808 processor. The Mi 4c also has several new tricks up its sleeves. We managed to spend some time with it to see just how different it is from the Mi 4i.

by Andrew Cheng · 3 weeks ago · 3 Comments · 5.2k views


By now, almost everyone would’ve heard of honor. Once known only as a sub-brand of Huawei, honor has really made an impact among consumers, especially budget-conscious ones. Its flagship devices, the honor 6 and honor 6 Plus, were really good smartphones for their asking prices. The honor 7 continues this trend by offering even more capable hardware at a competitive price, and boy, it’s definitely a worthy successor.

by Andrew Cheng · 3 weeks ago · 8 Comments · 5.5k views


honor has just launched its new smartphone, the honor 7, in London. As the company’s latest flagship device, almost every single aspect of the honor 7 has been improved over its predecessor, the honor 6. In some ways, it even surpasses the honor 6 Plus. After spending some time with it, I can safely say the honor 7 is the company’s best offering yet.

Enter the Logitech MX Anywhere 2; a portable wireless mouse for those who are always out and about. As a peripheral from such a well-known company, how does it hold up as a mobile mouse?

Lightning Review: Pebble Time

Pebble Time Review Main

When Pebble announced its very first smartwatch back in 2012, it broke Kickstarter’s record back then, raising US$10.3 million in just over a month. Fast forward to February 2015, the company came back with a brand new smartwatch, the Pebble Time, which features major improvements over the original watch. The campaign also broke Kickstarter’s record, raising over US$10 million in just two days.

But a lot has happened since 2012. There are plenty of Android Wear smartwatches in the market right now, and Apple’s first smartwatch seems to be doing extremely well. Is the Pebble Time good enough to fight with all these devices from more well-known companies like Motorola, Huawei, LG, Samsung and such? Here’s a quick review to find that out.
