The latest edition of the Hardware Asylum Podcast is now available, covering a range of topics including a discussion about the newly released, mid-range Pascal graphics cards and a look at the HonBonTec HBT+ Gravity Chassis. Check it out:
The New Pascal GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti Cards
With the launch of the low-end Pascal cards from NVidia it makes you wonder where the card actually fits in the performance landscape. In this segment Dennis and Darren discuss who the target market is for this card and how price will be a huge factor in which card you actually go with.
From a performance standpoint the GTX 1050 is extremely efficient and is able to run off of PCI Express power with no external power connector. This is a huge step forward allowing OEM system builders the choice of installing a gaming card in their low end systems instead of a flat 2D only video card.
HBT+ Gravity 6 Case Overview
Last year Dennis reviewed a couple of cases from HonBonTec and while the interior layout was very nice the outward style was somewhat dated and not very popular with enthusiasts. For their next design the Gravity 6 HBT reached out to Hardware Asylum asking for some professional feedback on a few of the design concepts to make sure that both style and usability were accounted for. The results of those discussions have been embodied in their latest chassis, the Gravity 6.
