Logitech Slim Combo MK470 in a hands-on review
This quiet, wireless keyboard-mouse set for mobile and stationary use. The keyboard-mouse set for testing, the MK470 Slim Combo from Logitech. The set focuses on mobility and is therefore particularly thin, but is also supposed to be used on the desktop at home. Our hands-on test clarifies whether the MK470 can fully replace conventional keyboards and mice and is also the perfect companion for the on-the-go.
The MK470 is a wireless mouse and keyboard set that connects to a laptop or desktop PC via a wireless USB receiver. Due to its thin and slim dimensions, it should not only be used at home but also on the go, if the integrated laptop keyboard is not sufficient, for example, because there is no numeric keypad or longer typing tasks are pending,
This shiny gray plastic rail is also what is most likely to offend some people visually, since it does not convey a particularly high-quality look, depending on taste. The rail can be removed, and underneath is the battery compartment for 2 AAA batteries or rechargeable batteries as well as a holder for the small wireless USB receiver. However, the latter can also be stored in the mouse.
The layout of the keyboard looks very tidy, and there is a Numpad on the right side. The normal keys are about 1.6 x 1.6 cm (~0.63 x 0.63 in) and have a distance of about 3 mm to each other. For optical reasons, the corner keys are rounded just like the corners themselves, but this leads to unusually small size ratios especially in the upper, already reduced key row on the outer keys.
The mouse is rounded at all ends and measures about 10.6 to 10.7 cm (~4.17 to 4.21 in) at the central axis. In width, we measure about 5.8 cm (~2.3 in). On the bottom are two semicircular gliding feet and centrally an on/off switch and of course the optical sensor. The special thing, however, is the top. The very thin plastic cover with the “logic” lettering is easy to remove because it is only held in place by three quite strong magnets in the back half, the front half consists of two flexible buttons. We like the magnetic solution with the removable top cover. Under the cover is the compartment for the battery (1x AA), and there is also a small slot for the radio receiver.
AMD Processor RyzenTM ThreadripperTM
Experience unmatched PC computing experiences from high-performing and efficient desktop processors fueled by the world’s most advanced 7nm processor core technology.
Today’s cutting-edge product development relies on incredible precision balanced with rapid time to market. Companies of all sizes rely on computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) to deliver on both of those needs. At the heart of the CAM, the process is the Computer Numerical Control (CNC) milling machine, which is used to manufacture a variety of complex, high-precision parts and devices for consumer and industrial applications. Precise control of a CNC cutting tool is what enables manufacturers to produce thousands of parts with the same quality within specified tolerances. Using CAM software, manufacturers can automatically calculate the intricate tool paths of CNC machinery—driving new levels of speed and efficiency across their operations
To get the highest performance, CAM software needs to run on professional workstations, powered by the right processors. For example, calculating the ideal tool path is a multi-threaded process. So, an AMD RyzenTM ThreadripperTM PRO 3995WX processor with 64 cores is perfectly suited for the task.
AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO processors are fantastic for multi-threaded tasks like product simulations, generative design, and tool path optimization. Manufacturing design tasks, such as 3D modeling and design, are lightly threaded. So, they benefit more from a higher CPU clock speed, rather than more CPU cores. Threadripper PRO processors not only deliver high multi-threaded performance, but they also offer best-in-class single-threaded performance as well1. In fact, the AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3945WX is the first 12-core professional workstation processor with a base clock speed of 4.0GHz, ideal for 3D modeling and design workloads.
Corsair Sabre RGB Pro Champion Series Gaming Mouse
Featuring an unassuming design that belies its feature set, the $59.99 Corsair Sabre RGB Pro Champion Series does more than your average esports mouse. It’s lighter than it appears, offers strong hand support, and lets you tweak DPI settings with a quick button combo. The Sabre RGB Pro’s creative ideas and solid fundamentals make it a noteworthy esports mouse, despite questions surrounding 8000Hz hype rolling and its effectiveness.
In the macro sense, the Sabre RGB Pro is a conventional, wired, 6-button gaming mouse. Measuring a slightly short 1.38 by 2.72 by 5.03 inches (HWD), its nondescript, matte black, plastic chassis and two RGB lighting elements look downright plain. The Sabre RGB Pro has the typical button array: a scroll wheel, two-click panels, and a DPI cycle in the center column. It also features two, large, boxy side buttons.
The Sabre RGB Pro’s chassis shows no signs of the mouse being made for esports. It isn’t too small, and it isn’t a faux-ambidextrous shape that lacks hand support. On the contrary, Sabre RGB Pro’s comfortable to hold for long stretches. Despite that, it weighs just 2.43 ounces. Many manufacturers make their mice extra small, or simply forge ergonomic designs, to hit that low weight number

Meshify 2 Compact Dark Tempered Glass
Meshify 2 Compact is a high-performing case with a bold, stealth-inspired aesthetic. Its striking exterior features bolt-free, flush tempered glass, a fully removable top panel granting excellent interior access, and a front USB 3.1 Type-C port.
The Meshify 2 Compact features a Fractal-signature front panel, with contours that form a rough but geometric surface. It looks like someone grabbed a sheet of metal mesh and gave it a proper beating with a triangle-headed hammer, and its asymmetrical design makes the case look unique and a bit edgy.
As this panel is entirely built out of a metal mesh, air will be able to pass straight through into the case with ease, and a pair of Fractal Design’s 140mm Dynamic X2 GP-14 fans mounted just behind the front panel help to accelerate the flow. That’s a nice change from many recent cases from NZXT or Razer, which feature solid front panels.
The panel on the right side of the case is a simple sheet of steel, while the left panel on our review unit is constructed out of tempered glass. Fractal Design also offers an alternative version of the Meshify 2 that omits the glass and has steel panels on both sides, but other than that, the two cases are identical.
