vertagear-triigger-350-se-gaming-chairBy Kyle Bennett @ HardOCP

What happens when you rope yourself in to doing a gaming chair review? You take your time, do it right, and make sure your butt spends at least a few months in the chair before you write your review. My butt has been in the VertaGear Triigger 350 Gaming Chair for over 3 months, and here are my thoughts.

zalman-zm-k900m-gaming-keyboardBy Thomas Ran @ Tom’s Hardware

The ZM-K900M replaces the ZM-K700M (which we reviewed earlier) as Zalman’s flagship keyboard. Adding in more lighting options and switch choices, the K900M expands on the market that the K700M targeted. The keyboard is still obviously aimed at gamers, with flashy visuals and gamer-typical marketing features such as n-key rollover (NKRO) and a high polling rate, but the addition of clicky (Blue) and tactile (Brown) options may actually please gamers disappointed at the Cherry MX Red-only K700M.

AMD released the Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.5.2 drivers. These drivers improve performance of “Prey” a further 4.5 percent, compared to 17.5.1 drivers, as tested on a Radeon RX 580 8 GB graphics card. The drivers also address some critical bugs, beginning with random hangs or application crash noticed on “NieR: Automata,” excessive level load times noticed on “Forza Horizon 3,” a bug related to multi-GPU setups where displays plugged into the second graphics cards where the first (primary) graphics card disappears from the device list; and a bug with Radeon RX 550 which causes the system to hang when entering sleep or hibernate states.

You can download the Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition 17.5.2 drivers here.

cougar-armor-gaming-chairBy Mario Campos @ PureOC

A gamer who doesn’t sit on their butt for hours at a time is scarcely a gamer at all. It’s at least true today, as the arcades have gone the way of… I don’t know, MySpace? They exist, but not like they did in their prime. If you want to play a game, you’ll likely want to sit. If you want to sit for hours without those post-game pains, you’re going to want a better than average chair. You might even want the Cougar Armor Gaming Chair. Let’s find out.

corsair-glaive-rgb-gaming-mouseBy Joe Evans @ Legit Reviews

Corsair has added yet one more product to their ever growing gaming peripheral repertoire with their launch of the GLAIVE RGB Gaming Mouse. If you’re like me, the word glaive drew a big blank so I had to look it up to find out that it simply means ‘sword’. Being that a sword is an instrument of warfare and many games are combat based, it seems as an appropriate a appellation as any. It also follows the seemingly growing trend of titling it in all caps which is probably some clever marketing trick to make the product stand out in a listing or triggering some memory mnemonic in prospective customers. Maybe it’s none of the above and I’m simply reading too much into it. Either way, we have our hot hands on one to see if it meets one of their taglines of “Winning never felt so good”. Sword in hand, we plunge ahead.
