Kingston HyperX Cloud Revolver Review (HX-HSCR-BK/NA)

Kingston HyperX Cloud Revolver Review

Faced with a myriad of choices for headsets, it’s hard to choose just one headset for all your needs. Kingston’s HyperX Cloud Revolver addresses the one headset problem and uses a standard 3.5mm jack suitable for mobile devices like phones and tablets and perfect for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Wii U. Add a 3.5mm to 1/4″ stereo adapter, and you have a headset fit for all your audio needs. Pushed as an audio headset for gaming, the Kingston HyperX Cloud Revolver needs to be comfortable for long hours of gaming and good enough so you can “ear spot” enemies from long distances. Crystal clear sound with good sound isolation is needed for gaming, but the Kingston HyperX Cloud Revolver is noticeably missing virtual 7.1 sound. The problem with USB-driven 7.1 Virtual surround sound we’ve noticed is the sound/music is muddied by the conversion process so ‘virtual surround” isn’t a big issue for us. What is a big issue is reliable playback of exactly what you are supposed to hear as you are meant to hear it.

Undervolting the RTX 3080 and the RTX3090

What if you could find a way to lower both the temperature and the power consumption of your new GPU while still getting almost the same performance? Well, there is. It is called undervolting. Since the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 came out there has been a lot of talk about undervolting them to get better thermals while still getting kick-ass performance and of course I decided I wanted to try it out myself. In the following pages you can both read on how to do it yourself but also get an idea how it will affect both the performance but also the thermals (and noise level).

At the same time Nvidia released the excellent RTX 3080 they also released the RTX 3090, a successor to both the RTX 2080 Ti and the Titan RTX. While the RTX 3080 comes with 16 GB VRAM, Nvidia has put a whopping 24 GB VRAM on the RTX 3090. In addition the RTX 3090 comes with 10496 CUDA cores (up from 8704 for the RTX 3080), 82 Streaming Multiprocessors, a wider memory interface and almost 1 TB/s in memory bandwith. Today I am looking at the Gigabyte RTX 3090 Eagle OC 24 GB. As the name implies it comes with a (minor) overclock. How much faster is it than the Gigabyte RTX 3080 Eagle OC? Is it worth the extra money? Read on to to get the answers on these and many other questions.
