msi-x299-gaming-pro-carbon-acBy Hilbert Hagedoorn @ Guru3D

We review the X299 Gaming Pro Carbon AC motherboard from MSI. A motherboard with looks and many features on which to embark with that new Core X processor series. This motherboard is intended for Intel’s Skylake-X processors that will be released this summer based on Socket LGA2066, however, the motherboard also supports Kaby Lake-X procs in the form of the quad-core Core i7 7740K and Core i5 7640K.

AMD late Wednesday released the latest version of Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition. Version 17.6.2 beta is the second release for this month, and comes with a quick-fix for the performance loss noticed in DiRT 4 after its latest game-patch, when the MSAA is cranked up to 8x. The rest of its feature-set appears unchanged from the previous 17.6.1 drivers.

You can download the Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.6.2 beta drivers here.

nixeus-edg-27-ips-freesync-monitorBy Marco Chiappetta @ Hot Hardware

Los Angeles-based Nixeus has been working with AMD on FreeSync since the project’s inception. Nixeus was among the first companies to offer an affordable, Full-HD FreeSync monitor with a wide adaptive-sync frequency range and one of Nixeus’ monitors was used in AMD’s initial FreeSync demos all the way back in 2014. Now the company is readying a brand-new FreeSync-compatible display, the Nixeus EDG 27, that features an IPS panel, 2560×1440 WQHD resolution, and a price point that undercuts competing offerings.

gskill-trident-z-rgb-32gb-ddr4-3600By Thomas Soderstrom @ Tom’s Hardware

I’m not much for long product names, but Trident Z RGB doesn’t seem too excessive. Add the DDR4-3600 to it, and it’s getting slightly lengthy. Oh, and there’s the CAS 16 rating. Fortunately, G.Skill makes its model numbers a little easier to read than many of its competitors, as the “4” stands for DDR4, 3600 is the data rate, C16 is the latency, the Q means quad-DIMM, 32 is the gigabytes of capacity, and GTZ is the style. Unfortunately, R stands for RGB on its black-and-gray heat spreaders, where G.Skill uses the same letter on other modules to denote the color red. And with that, model F4-3600C16Q-32GTZR is born. So much for the decoder ring. On to the details.

asus-rog-crosshair-vi-hero-ryzen-moboBy Daniel Dobrowolski @ HARDOCP

It’s been years since we’ve reviewed an ASUS ROG offering that was designed for AMD CPUs. That’s not to say that those haven’t existed, those just weren’t worth a look as the AMD side of things has not been compelling for the better part of the last decade. Thanks to AMD Ryzen, we have a reason to take the ASUS Crosshair VI Hero for a test drive and tell you how it fared in the tumultuous sea of AM4 motherboards.
