AMD Radeon Pro W7700 Review – Where does AMD’s mid-range workstation graphics card stand in everyday work? With teardown and material analysis

With the Radeon Pro W7700, AMD is now closing the huge gap between the previously tested Radeon Pro W7800 and W7600, thereby completing its own portfolio of RDNA3 graphics cards for productive use.

Synology DS923 NAS in practice test – Very good all-rounder with many advantages, but almost nothing works without extensions

Synology’s DS923 has already been on the market for a year, whereas they already took their time with the DS920. By the way, long product cycles are more of an advantage than a disadvantage in my opinion, because the product and software mature without blind haste. With an AMD Ryzen R1600 as the main processor, four drive bays, two M.2 slots [...]

Much helps much, my grandma used to say. And before you throw something away, it’s better to make something new out of it. So say my grandma and Intel. After Raptor Lake is before Arrow Lake, and so the Raptor refresh comes almost exactly one year later. Says Intel and my grandma is silent. And so, in addition to a bit more clock, at least [...]

igor’sLAB continues to upgrade: On the hunt for (false) elements and measuring the impossible – Keyence VHX7000 and EA-300 in daily use | Issue 1

You can invest a lot of things for and in something. Time, energy and, of course, a lot of money. But if you take the latter in hand, on the one hand to save time and energy, and on the other hand to test or uncover things that your normal (media) competitors can’t, then something like this is well worth it. After all, I have two mainstays [...]

MSI Gaming Wi-Fi 6E Router RadiX AXE6600 presented in detail – igors’sLAB together with MSI raffles a ping killer with RGB

I’m sure I don’t need to describe a router any further, because everyone knows that the Internet doesn’t just come out of the wall socket, but also needs to be distributed throughout the home in a manner that is as latency-free and high-bandwidth as possible. Since Wi-Fi 6E now enables real tri-band routers that can generate a [...]
