There was a recent burst in demand from our community (that's you guys) to cover more gaming peripherals—keyboards, mice, headsets, the works—and start reviewing the options out there. Following-up with our video production rig, which endeavored to detail some great audio peripherals, this review signifies the impending publication of several new mouse & keyboard reviews.


For the past several weeks I've had the opportunity to play around with a couple of high-end gaming mice sent in to GamersNexus, including today's Logitech G600; this Logitech G600 gaming mouse review will look at its features, value for MMO gamers, and talk about serious button enthusiasm.

Kingston Digital has just claimed the title of world’s largest flash drive for their DataTraveler HyperX Predator USB3.0 drive. The drive is currently available in 512GB, though they plan to have a 1TB model for sale later this quarter—that’s as large as the HDD I’m using now.


Although the size is the main feature, there are some other specs to look at:

For those in the market for a clean, simple case design, the Define XL R2 is here from Fractal Design. Using a feature called ModuVent, Fractal Design seeks to find the ideal balance between cooling, noise, and having a case that looks like an Ikea coffee table.


A new trailer (below) is out for Futuremark Corporation's "Fire Strike" benchmark, part of the next 3DMark edition which is to be released before the end of 2012. Fire Strike is just one benchmark of three, and was created to stress DirectX 11-level hardware to its limits, even anticipating future advancements in technology and graphics.


Rosewill has, to use their marketing speak, "unleashed" the HERCULES 1600W PSU (complete with caps lock), their most wattage-packed PSU to date. As the name suggests, it's a heavy duty chunk of technology, able to handle the highest tier of gaming hardware, and probably serve as a decent blunt weapon in a pinch.
