We talk to ESL about the future of esports!

Do you actually know these acronyms?

Acronyms are used every day in the computing world and users may not necessarily know what the abbreviation stands for, or even the meaning behind it, so we have picked commonly used acronyms to explain the meaning.

DDR is common when talking about memory, and it stands for Double Data Rate. So what is Double Data Rate? It is technology that allows data to be transferred on the rising and falling edges of the clock signal, this increases the data rate by two compared to singular data rate. There are different DDR names, DDR1, DDR2, DDR3, and DDR4, over time the Double Data Rate has increased in speed giving faster memory speeds.

FPS is used frequently, however in the gaming world it two different meanings, first of all, it can stand for First Person Shooter, a genre of game where the user’s perspective is from the eyes of the protagonist. Examples include, Counter Strike, Call of Duty and Battlefield. The second meaning is Frames Per Second, this is the number of frames in the game or application that can be rendered in one second by the computer. More powerful hardware will help providing a higher number of FPS, giving the game more fluid and enjoyable gameplay.

SSDs are becoming vastly popular, this acronym is short for Solid State Drive, it has the same functionality as a normal hard drive, but is much faster when it comes to moving files and faster loading times. Having an SSD installed in your computer can really improve the speed of your computer, making it faster when turning on your PC but also faster when loading games and applications.

ATX is Advanced Technology Extended, it is a form factor specification and it sets standard sizes and connections for motherboards and power supply units. In relation to motherboards, ATX is the full-size motherboard layout, however there are smaller standard motherboard sizes such as micro-ATX and mini-ITX and also there is a larger standard form factor that is e-ATX. In terms of power supplies, they all have the same height and width, however only the depth varies therefore most ATX power supply units will fit a standard ATX case.

BIOS is the Basic Input Output System, it is a very basic software presented on the motherboard, the BIOS loads before anything else does on the computer and allows the user to control the hardware and the operation. This is something of great interest to computer enthusiasts, it allows overclockers to tweak the hardware further potentially to get further speeds.

APU is a Accelerated Processing Unit, a term used by AMD that includes the processor and graphics core onto the same package. This allows for a better link between graphics and processor, and reduces the system power requirement and latencies as both of these key processors are included on the same package.

NAS is extremely important for personal and business storage solutions, the term NAS stands for Network Attached Storage and it can be very basic or complicated depending on the setup. It means that there is a hard drive that is available to use over a network, and people often use a small dedicated NAS box with a number of hard drives running in a RAID array.

RAID also known as Redundant Array of Inexpensive (or Independent) Disks, it is not a backup, but it is a way to link several hard drives together to increase performance and in some cases offer a measure of redundancy. Commonly used is RAID 0 (Needs at least 2 drives, moves data around faster. No capacity lost, but if one drive fails all your data is gone.) and RAID 1 (Needs at least 2 drives, likely to be zero change in speed but you only have the capacity of one drive. If one drive dies, you don't loose any data. This is frequently confused with a backup).

The last but not least is one you can share with your friends.

PEBCAK - Problem Exists Between Chair and Keyboard; One of the most difficult hardware/software errors to resolve. Reboot suggested.

The In Win 303 made of steel and tempered glass is here!

The In Win team presents the all-new 303, a simple, yet elegant computer chassis crafted from steel and tempered glass. The distinctively clean front panel is complemented with a bright LED design to balance the overall appearance. While the 303 is a stunning visual display, it’s because of the quality and skilled engineering that pieced together such a fine chassis.

Your PC is the main part of your battle station, which is why the 303 commands attention from the moment it is powered on. The In Win logo is highlighted with lucent LED-backlit display as well as on the blue stripped I/O front panel. These gorgeous LEDs also have the purpose of indicating when the PC is activated.

In Win has set a standard for being an innovative computer hardware company. Mission accomplished with the 303 since it has perfected a tool-less design by being able to remove the beautiful 3mm tempered glass side panel by just pressing the handle. No more use of screws, making installation and removal even easier.

This easily accessible dust filter has an embedded design for quick removal. It’s conveniently located on the bottom, and removing dust has never been easier.

Overall, the 303 can accommodate two radiators (top and rear) and three fans at the bottom providing users with a well-cooled rig. The cool air intakes from the bottom creates efficient air flow for quick heat dissipation.

The 303 has 2.5” and 3.5” drive bays, and its separate PSU chamber provides an ideal climate without interfering with the motherboard and graphics card area. The specialized GPU holder can provide extra support to graphics cards. Yet another detail In Win oversees and manufactures to make PC building much easier.

Travelers from all around the world gather in one of the most beautiful and unique locations the planet has to offer, Reykjavík, Iceland. Allies and rivals alike set aside their in-game differences to share drinks with one another and forge new friendships.

You can check out these new and exclusive systems on our website here and we're also offering £25 off one of our brand new noblechairs EPIC range when you purchase an EVE: Valkyrie Special Edition Gaming PC!

 

We are the number one online retailer for gaming chairs! With a huge range already available we have decided to expand the range even further to include the highest quality of chairs on the market, noblechairs!

noblechairs presents itself to demanding gamers, enthusiasts, and gaming professionals alike by debuting its remarkable EPIC Series of innovative high-class gaming chairs solely made of exclusive premium materials.

With a classy yet subtle design, created by a German design team to ensure a timeless look without garish colours. The signature appearance of all of the majestic noblechairs is instantly reminiscent of luxury class cars and belongs to the brand's most memorable trademarks.

Furthermore, noblechairs only harness high-precision manufacturing processes for production to those utilised for premium car interiors and performed by reliable automated industrial robots which warrant an invariably immaculate build quality ever close to sheer perfection.

The most striking topic about the new EPIC series are the noblechairs EPIC real leather gaming chairs swathed in a high-quality genuine leather cover never seen before on a gamer seat. These special noble series come in a black-white-red or an all-black version and are a true delectation for splendour enthusiasts who desire for more than just a mere gaming chair. Genuine leather with its intriguing surface texture is both exceedingly durable and supple. It is also easy to clean and possesses superior breathability, which simply renders it the very best raw material available for seating furniture coverings on the planet.

The real leather chairs are complemented by otherwise identical black-red, black-gold, black-blue and all-black versions fully vested in an extra thick 100% vegan polyurethane (PU) faux leather cover which is perforated in the contact zones for increased breathability. PU offers similar characteristics as genuine leather and due to its outstanding material properties, it has nowadays penetrated all areas of human life and can by default be found in top-of-the-range premium cars of all renowned manufacturers. A unique custom variant of these PU imitation leather chairs especially made for eSports fans is our stunning SK Gaming Edition in black-white-blue, which is graced by the famous team's own branding.

All noblechairs' seating area is embroidered with a diamond pattern stitching, while contrastive coloured seams along with a patch segment with logo embroidery create beautiful counterpoints to the chairs' main colour. In addition, a subtly debossed logo that crests the headrest is accompanied by an elliptical aluminium emblem with relief lettering which adorns the backrest. Thanks to such choice vestments and fine design details, these most brilliant specimen of swivel chairs reign supreme amongst the upper echelons of the entire gaming chair market and cater to all connoisseurs of aesthetic design and precious materials.

The dimensionally stable high-class upholstery of the noblechairs gaming chairs relies exclusively on freshly moulded cold foam with 55% density straight from the factory instead of recycled waste scraps used in many lesser, competing products. Its open-cell cold foam structure delivers optimal breathability, which allows for a pleasant climate regulation and brings along highest comfort as well as increased robustness and longevity. The ergonomic office chairs' impressive list of features further encompasses softly cushioned 4D armrests made of PU, 360-degree swivel rotation, flexibly adjustable seat height via a safety class 4 gas lift along with an advanced rocking mechanism, which allows for rocking the chairs up to 14 degrees.

The tilt positions can be locked and the tilt tension can be dynamically adjusted. Also the angle between backrest and seating area can be statically adjusted through a side lever. Therefore, each noblechairs gaming chair offers sovereign ergonomics with flexible adjustability. Thanks to a sturdy steel frame mounted on top of a durable five-star-base made of pure aluminium, the chairs can support a maximum weight of up to 180 kg. Five smoothly running 60 mm casters with nylon core and PU coating are attached to the base and equally suited for soft and hard floors. To adequately support the neck area and lumbar region, two removable pillows that allow for ultimate relaxation are included with every noblechairs gamer seat.

All noblechairs products abide by the UK Fire Safety Regulations for Furniture and Furnishings (BS 5852) and therefore feature a fire-retardant layer that has been applied to the surface material to minimise fire hazards.
