"A gaming mouse for a smooth game play."

The culture of gaming mouse is increasing nowadays. Not just for gaming purposes, a gaming mouse is suitable for normal computer usage as well. Gaming mouses come with ergonomic advantages and are designed in a way that the user can hold it comfortably. If possible, try opting for the gaming mouse even for the normal use as it gives you many advantages.

Programmable buttons

Gaming mouses feature a number of buttons on the sides that can be used for different purposes. The buttons can be programmed and with a simple click, the user can easily perform the assigned task. With it, you can easily change the tabs; delete files, copy and paste texts, launch or close apps, and many more.

Durability and Improved Performance

Gaming mouses are made with high-quality materials and with better technology opting for the fact that the mouse might get banged to the desk several times. Also, the buttons can be clicked for millions of times and they have glide pads to reduce the friction. With its sweat-proof and other features, a gaming mouse can last for a long period.

Comfort and ergonomic advantages

With its ergonomic designs, users can easily hold the mouse and use it. The gaming mouses are crafted in order to conform to your hands and prevent any kind of fatigue or strain even during the long gaming hours. Not all grip and hands are the same, gaming mouses, better if wireless, can fit your grip and help you work or play for extended hours.

Response time and acceleration

A gaming mouse not only has a better grip but is also accurate. A normal mouse has a response time of 4-6+ ms; however, a gaming mouse has a response time of 1ms. Also, because of its better acceleration, the cursor moves fast as per the speed of the hand movement.

Higher DPI

Dots Per Inch (DPI) related to the sensitivity of the mouse. A gaming mouse has a feature to change its DPI. With higher DPI, the cursor moves or shifts with fewer mouse movements, and it is best suitable for fast movements especially while playing games. And also you can change it to lower DPI suitable for photo edit.

Wired or wireless

Alike a normal mouse, a gaming mouse is also available wired or wireless. The wireless mouse, often, comes with Bluetooth connectivity to connect the mouse with the laptop or pc.

Sensors

Most gaming mouses have laser sensors that have better response time and better acceleration.

Things to look out for when buying a gaming smartphone

14th August 2020
"it is important to know what things in a phone make it stand out among the others and make it a worthy gaming phone."

As more and more people are inching towards mobile games such as PUBG Mobile, Fortnite, COD Mobile, it is important to know what things in a phone make it stand out among the others and make it a worthy gaming phone. Here are the things which phone should have to give its user the best gaming experience :

Performance

This is probably the most important thing which separates a normal phone and a gaming phone. The SoC (System on Chip) is the thing that runs your games and your day to day apps. The SoC comprises CPU, GPU, and many such components. The better the SoC the better the phone will perform in the games. Having a 4GB ram is enough. Currently, the best SoC which is offered by Qualcomm is Snapdragon 865+(launched 2 months ago). Snapdragon 855 is more widely available. 

Screen

This is the thing you look the most while gaming and if it's not a good one, it'll ruin your gaming experience. A good screen comprises of 3 things:

Screen resolution: Gaming at high resolution will give you an edge over your opponent. 1080p is perfect as going beyond it will barely give you any advantage as human eyes will hardly notice a difference between 1080p and higher resolution. 

Type of screen: Having a phone with AMOLED display will enhance your gaming experience as it provides better contrast and vibrant colors compared to an LCD panel. Also, AMOLED panels are more efficient than LCD panels. Having AMOLED will also give you a better content consumption experience

Screen refresh rate: Higher refresh rate screens will provide smoother gameplay. The normal phones have a refresh rate of 60Hz. Currently, 90Hz has become common among devices and will smoothen your gameplay by a lot. But some devices even offer 120Hz which will enhance your experience even more. 

Cooling system

Gaming is a very intense and resource-heavy task for a device, which in return produces a lot of heat. Heat and electronics don't go well together. Also, a gamer holds the device for an extended period of time. So having a device that has a better cooling solution will help in performance and will also help the person holding the device. Many devices offer some sort of liquid cooling and a small number of devices even offer a fan!

Battery + Fast charging

Having a device with a large battery will significantly extend your gaming session. A device with a 5000 mAh battery is more than enough for a gaming session of about 4 hours+. A device offering fast charging will greatly reduce the time between your gaming sessions. Some devices nowadays even offer devices with 6000 mAh battery and blazing-fast 30 W charging

5 Things to Consider while Buying Gaming Monitor

25th August 2020
"Planning to buy a gaming monitor but having problems with choosing one? We are here to ease your inconvenience."

Most of the people, while setting up a gaming PC, tend to prioritize the hardware and fill their computer case with expensive hardware. Besides the hardware, peripherals like keyboards and mouse are given more emphasis even though the average keyboard and mouse will do for most people. Monitors, on the other hand, are most important yet most bypassed part while setting up a gaming PC. What fun will it be if your display won’t have the specs that won’t augment your expensive hardware?

As the display or monitor shows your actions, moves, enemies and your entire game; it should obviously be considered cautiously while setting up a gaming PC. The things that should be considered while buying a Gaming monitor are:

Resolution

Resolution is the most important aspect to look for while buying a gaming monitor. Higher the resolution- higher the number of pixels, clearer the images and superior will be your gaming experience. The gaming monitors come in 3 resolutions- 1080p, 1440p and 2160p. Considering the hardware and GPU limitations 1440p can be regarded as the most suitable resolution for enhancing your gaming experience with inexpensive hardware. But, if you have advanced hardware and GPU, then you can go for 2160p resolution.

Refresh Rate

Refresh rate, simply, is the number of times the image or frame in your screen is refreshed within 1 second. A monitor with 60 Hz refresh rate will be able to refresh the image on the screen up to 60 times per second. Higher the refresh rate, smoother and less choppy images will be formed. Generally, for gaming purpose, the refresh rate should be at least 75Hz for smoother gameplay.

Response Time

Response time is the speed at which a single pixel on the screen can change its color. Lower the response time, better will be the gaming experience. If response time is higher, it will create ‘motion blur’ effect. For gaming, monitor with response time less than 8ms should be considered.

Panel Type

Basically, there are 3 different types of panels each with their own set of strengths and weaknesses- TN, VA and IPS. TN is the cheapest and offers the lowest response time though its visual quality and viewing angles are relatively not so impressive. VA panels offer best viewing angles and have the superior visual quality to TN panels; however, its response time is higher and is a bit pricey. Amongst all, IPS panels are regarded as best panels but most expensive. They have the best visual effects and contrast but have about 4ms response time which is higher than TN panel. If your budget supports, IPS panels are best for consideration or else, TN panels with their lowest response time will also do.

G-sync or Freesync

NVIDIA’s G-Sync and AMD’s Freesync are the technologies that aim to eliminate the screen tearing (a graphics distortion where multiple frames are displayed in a single screen draw that occurs when graphics processor is out of sync with the display). They help your monitor to refresh at a rate that matches your graphics card. However, you cannot use AMD’s Freesync technology with NVIDIA’s graphics card and NVIDIA’s G-Sync technology with AMD’s graphics card. Both technologies are good and you can choose among these relying upon your budget or the video card of your choice.

Things to Consider While Buying a Gaming Laptop

14th September 2020
"The best gaming experience comes with the best gaming laptops."

The gaming trend is escalating, and so is the technology and features in the gaming laptops. If you have enough budget to put in the gaming laptops, then why to hesitate- for gaming laptops enrich your gaming experience with smooth transitions for a longer period without burning your hardware. 
One should be cautious about every feature while buying a gaming laptop as it is pricy and in case of damages, the repair costs can be really high. Some of the important things that should be considered while buying a gaming laptop are:

Hardware (GPU & CPU)

Both GPU and CPU are equally important to enrich the gaming experience. Advanced GPU aids the gamer with smoother VR and special effects to enrich the gaming experience. While talking about GPU, there are many advanced graphics cards from the AMD series and the Nvidia series. These cards differ from entry-level gaming that requires basic settings to mainstream gaming, and VR and Highest settings. So, do some research and choose accordingly.

The gaming experience is mostly affected by the GPU rather than the CPU. So, you can choose a very powerful CPU- Core i7 or you can simply choose Dual Core i5 as well. However, for lag-free experience in high-intensity games, you should go after Core i7 which relatively is expensive than other processors.

RAM/VRAM

RAM, undoubtedly, is the feature that affects the entire experience, and don't forget, things under the hood matters the most. For gaming, I recommend you not to settle below 8GB RAM, as even the best games might stress you out with all the disadvantages that come with lower RAM. If possible, go for 16GB RAM that is generally offered on the laptops with GTX 2060 or more. Nevertheless, memory, in most of the laptops today, is upgradable; so you can boost it when it’s convenient.

Screen/ Display

Every move you make, every target you set, every detail, every enemy, and everything you enjoy while gaming is all on your screen. So, don't forget to consider the laptop with the best resolution, refresh rate, and viewing angle! One needs to consider the size, resolution, refresh rate, panel type, and G-sync and free sync. Click here to know more about the display best for the gaming experience. And, if possible, avoid 2-in-1 laptops with touch screens as glossy screens that kill the battery are pitfalls for the best gaming experience. 

Keyboards and touchpads

As you make most of the movements using the keyboard, you have to examine the keyboards as well. The key travel i.e. how far you can press the key down; actuation i.e. force you need to apply to press the key down along with anti-ghosting and n-key roller that allows registers all the keys if pressed hurriedly should be considered to ease you with the gaming experience. Also, most entry-level gaming laptops have a red or white backlight or some also may have RGB backlight while some allow you to change colors as per the game.

Others

While the above mentioned are crucial and most important specs to consider, good sound output, ample storage, and brands should also be considered.
