We’ve reached a point where, like the hard drives of antiquity, the 6Gbps SATA bus and AHCI are holding back SSDs from realizing their full potential. The RD400 drives kick SATA and AHCI to the curb.


For our latest build (Blackjack), we tapped the 256GB RD400A, which includes the M.2 SSD preinstalled on a PCIe adapter card.

Calling all gamers: computer maker Lenovo and game development team Dark Rift are looking for some input on the types of fantastic weaponry they should include in their ongoing indie gaming project.
If you've ever thought it would be fun to create the fantastic weapons they use in video games, now's your time to shine. The Lenovo Game State project is asking users to submit their weapon ideas. Winning suggestions may make it to the final build.

What did our Nathan Lake think of MSI's new GS40 Phantom gaming laptop? "MSI has done an excellent job of marrying the slim and lightweight laptop concept with high-performance parts.
At first impression, MSI's GS40 Phantom-001 may look more like an ultrabook than a gaming laptop, but don't let the compact size fool you. From its bright red backlit keys to the glowing Gaming G Series logo on the lid, this system is made for gamers.

Mathieu “Sassanou” Heredia isn’t the first modder to style a system after a European supercar—and he won’t be the last—but that doesn’t make the In Win S-Frame Watermod Edition any less impressive.

Intel's Compute Stick is back and better than ever, with new processors (including Intel Core m3 and Core m5 models) and improved connectivity options.
Intel's Compute Stick shrinks a personal computer into a package the size of a pack of gum. The latest models of Compute Stick add even more capabilities to these tiny systems by incorporating more powerful Intel Core M processors.

In our estimation, Firewatch from Campo Santo is an instant classic and it’s clear that Campo Santo has a bright future.
