Elegant look and spacious interior: The Midi-Tower Kolink Bastion combines functionality with a reserved yet chic exterior. Beneath the tempered glass side door, the Midi Tower is decorated with an RGB LED strip, its colors are discreetly illuminated behind a strip of acrylic milk glass. The color scheme is complemented by a rear fan with digitally addressable RGB LEDs. A switch on the I/O panel controls the lighting. The spacious interior is packed with powerful hardware. A fine mesh with integrated dust filter on the top provides a proper ventilation.
The features of the Kolink Bastion Midi-Tower at a glance:
chic midi tower for motherboards up to E-ATX format
side part made of tempered glass with hinges
subtle digitally addressable RGB lighting on the power supply cover
a pre-installed 120 mm rear fan with digitally addressable RGB LEDs
up to five 120 mm and two 140 mm fans possible in total
room for graphics cards up to 370 mm, CPU cooler up to 160 mm
I/O panel with control for RGB LEDs, 1x USB 3.0 and 2x USB 2.0
Lots of space for gaming hardware at Kolink Bastion
Although the exterior dimensions are similar to a midi tower, the bastion, with its sophisticated design, is designed to accommodate a motherboard even in E-ATX format. Even enough space for graphics cards with 370 millimeters to the front. With 160 millimeters, there is enough space for common CPU coolers. A cover hides the power adapter and HDD cage, which can accommodate either two 3.5-inch or two 2.5-inch drives. Two 2.5-inch SSDs can be attached to the back of the motherboard bracket.
Those who rely on air cooling will find enough slots for 120-millimeter fans. Two 120-millimeter fans can be attached to the power supply cover, while a removable air filter under the power supply ensures dust-free operation. Either two 120 mm or two 140 mm fans can be attached to the lid. The lid is provided with a mesh, which lets the air flow through almost unhindered. Again, a dust filter ensures that the hardware inside does not have to be constantly cleaned. At the back, a powerful 120-millimeter fan already uses the available slot. The pre-installed fan is also equipped with a digitally controllable RGB LED lighting. Of course, instead of the fans adequate radiators can be installed.
Tempered glass and RGB LEDs highlight the hardware in a proper way
Even the motherboard tray is a real eye-catcher. Instead of boring quads and rectangles, for example, the recess behind the mainboard can be seen in form of a trapezoid. Well-placed feedthroughs and terminals allow for sophisticated cable management. The chic interior can be admired through a tempered glass side door, which can also be lifted out of the hinges. A strip of digitally addressable RGB LEDs is placed at the front of the power supply cover. A cover made of acrylic milk glass ensures a subtle light scattering. Its control and light effects are handled by a switch on the I/O panel.
The lighting on the pre-installed fan is also via a corresponding 3-pin connector (5VDG). Both can be connected to the two slots on the controller of the I/O panel. The fan also has a 3-pin socket to which other RGB components can be connected. Alternatively, the strip and fan can be connected to a corresponding 3-pin connector on the mainboard and is controlled via the software of the mainboard. This way the RGB switch on the I/O panel can be used as a reset button. In addition to the RGB/Reset switch, there is also a USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 slots, as well as 3.5mm jacks for headphone and microphone, and a power and HDD LED.

To coincide with the official sales launch of the Ryzen 5 5600G and Ryzen 7 5700G, AMD has also released a pithy promotional video. With the APUs, players should be able to "dominate the battlefield" ...
The combination of Zen 3 cores and a fast integrated graphics unit is probably the most important feature of these models. The Ryzen 7 5700G uses a Vega architecture with eight compute units (512 shader units) optimized for production in 7 nm. The Ryzen 5 5600G offers seven CUs - so 448 shader units. In the case of graphics memory, the graphics unit makes use of the main memory. DDR4-3200 is supported here, but the APUs usually allow a fairly high memory clock and, above all, synchronously with the Infinity Fabric, so that the memory bandwidth can be increased significantly here. The integrated graphics unit also benefits from this.
AMD's new Ryzen 7 5700G and Ryzen 5 5600G show in the test what the manufacturer has set out to do: They fill the gaps in the current desktop CPU portfolio, which in the Zen 3 processors alias Ryzen 5000 below the Ryzen 5 5600X to to date clearly gaped in the portfolio.

Since AM4 motherboards with chipsets from the 400 series have only very limited BIOS memory space to support the latest Ryzen processors, MSI is relaunching its existing models as a "MAX" version with more memory space and also better DDR4 performance. As the name suggests, the new boards have maximum compatibility for the AM4 socket and are aimed at users who do not want to buy the more expensive X570 boards and at the same time do not want to worry about the smooth interaction between mainboard and processor.
MSI wants to mark the corresponding products with clear information on the packaging and also on the product page so that there is no confusion. All MAX mainboards support the new Ryzen 3000 CPUs ex works, and future Ryzen 3000 processors are also to be supported thanks to sufficient storage space for future BIOS updates. For the updates there is either the graphical user interface of the "Click BIOS 5" or, for most models, a flash BIOS button. Nevertheless, the new MAX boards have also improved the DDR4 performance compared to the previous models, with up to 4,133 MHz (A-XMP) now being supported.

It's based on AMD's Vega architecture and is poised to be the fastest iGPU ever. The model in the Ryzen 3 2200G with the designation Vega 8 (as the name indicates) is based on eleven compute units and accordingly 512 shader units with a maximum boost clock of 1,126 MHz.
But how good is it in practice with Vega? And can the purchase of a dedicated graphics card really be made superfluous?
Sure, liquid gambling with the highest level of detail in 4K is not possible with an onboard graphics chip, that should be clear to everyone. But as our test of the AMD Ryzen 3 2200G proves, with AMD's new APU, you can play all the games in Full HD resolution smoothly. Popular games like CS Go, DOTA or LOL run smoothly even in the highest detail level. Even graphically demanding games such as GTA 5 come with high details to over 30 frames / s - who wants to gamble here smoothly but has to screw down the graphics quality something.

Microsoft Windows 10 Professional 64Bit, pre-installed with all necessary device drivers. Switch on and get started!
The launch of Windows 10 and the associated developments are among the most important market launches in Microsoft's corporate history. Windows 10 not only brings a new version of the operating system onto the market, Windows 10 enables a new platform generation:
"We want to ensure that we offer developers the largest and most vibrant user base for their applications," said Satya Nadella in his opening keynote at BUILD 2015 in San Francisco. Windows 10 is now available in 190 countries and 111 languages.
The browser is really new in Windows 10: Edge replaces Internet Explorer. The new browser doesn't just have the cooler name. It is also much faster. In almost all browser benchmarks, Edge depends on IE 11 from Windows 8.1. It can almost double its pace in Mozilla's Kraken benchmark. It looks the same in Google's Octane 2.0 test. Its pace remains roughly the same in the Sunspider test and the Peacekeeper benchmark. Conclusion: When it comes to the browser speed, Windows 10 with Edge catches up a lot. In Kraken and Octane, Edge overtakes the competition, in the Sunspider he stays ahead. The old conditions are only preserved in the Peacekeeper test.
Microsoft already shortened the start times of Windows extremely with Windows 8. If the computer is switched off using "Shut down", it does not switch itself off, but only goes into hibernation - from which it can wake up more quickly. Even with a real Katlstart or restart, Windows 8.1 is slightly slower: However, over time, Windows remembers the files that it needs for the start: The start time is shortened with repeated starts. After ten starts, the two operating systems were almost on par with 20 seconds (Windows 10) and 22 seconds (Windows 8.1).
Windows is actually getting faster and faster the older it gets: For most components, manufacturers are releasing ever more up-to-date drivers that accelerate the hardware. Windows feels like it is getting slower and slower: This is mostly due to the fact that the autostart folder is filling up with more and more entries, more and more tools are running in the background and more and more programs that are no longer used are littering the memory. The performance tests show hardly any difference between Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Sometimes one system is faster, sometimes the other. But all the results are so closely related - with less than three percent difference - that no difference is noticeable in practice. This also applies to tests such as Cinebench R15, which primarily check the processor performance. Even if we repeated the tests several times, nothing changed: When saving and buffering frequently used files, nothing seems to have changed between Windows 8.1 and 10. Conclusion: When it comes to hardware performance, Windows 10 is as fast as Windows 8.1 - or vice versa. So that Windows 10 stays fast, the same rules apply as always with Windows: Install the latest drivers and keep the system clean.
Windows 10 comes with the new Direct X12 3D interface. DX12 is designed to allow game programmers to use the capabilities of the GPU more efficiently. Computers with less powerful graphics cards can also benefit from this and display graphically complex games more smoothly. At the moment, the potential of DX12 can only be demonstrated using synthetic benchmarks such as the API overhead test. Conclusion: Windows 10 has the potential to accelerate games on weaker systems thanks to the DX12. But the concrete results will only show games that use DX12. The first should appear at the end of the year.
Windows 10 lays a good foundation: the hardware manufacturers have to use this to tease out a performance plus with improved drivers. Or in the case of Direct X12 game programmers who use the capabilities of the new interface in games.
