Fast Review-EVGA X99 Micro 2 board-just perfect!

The actual X99 platform is extremely eye-catching. Six cores or more, quad-channel memory,a lot of PCIe lanes,expanded storage options, the list goes on.But for those looking to shift to a more compact form factor in
the process,choices are minimal. MicroATX and small X99 boards are few and far between.There is a grand total of one ITX
X99 board,and four microATX ones-slim pickings indeed.And when you’re looking
for the ideal motherboard to round out a slick fresh themed build, well,let’s just say it’s a little difficult.
EVGA’s X99 Micro 2 mobo,then,provides a great base for any builder seeking to put a well-rounded build together.Visually,
it’s beautiful. With a light-weight metallic rear I/O cover, black color heat-sinks,and a gorgeous combine of black PCB and limited white LED lighting, it’s completely on point when it comes to overall design. Its fairly neutral color
palette will work inside any build you place it in, and,luckily, EVGA has removed the black and red capacitors found on its previous version.evga-x99-micro-2-__
As far as expandability will go,obviously solutions are a little more limited than on the bigger ATX boards. By default, you only have accessibility to four DIMM slots, for a single set of quad-channel memory, as
opposed to the full eight. There’s access to 3 PCIe slots (configurable as either 1×16, 2×16, or 3×8), there’s a one x4
M.2 socket, and SATA support is covered along with 10 6Gb/s ports.Although there is no
hint of SATA Express here, that is hardly a loss in our eyes. That apart,the board is very clean and exceedingly
well rounded. There’s an on-board power and reset button, diagnostic LED display,USB 3.0, and no fewer than 5 PWM fan
headers, with two being right-angled.Therefore, it’s feature rich, but exactly how does it
perform? Well, we’ll be honest:nearly just like every other X99 motherboard we’ve tested.
As far as the platform goes, there’s very little difference between boards outside of LN2 assistance and expanded power phases,for those lucky enough to net themselves a well-balanced overclocking processor chip.
Compared to the full-sized Asus X99 Sabertooth, the Micro 2 have scored slightly higher in both Cinebench R15 and Tech
ARP’s x264 benchmark;there was less than a 0.62GB/s difference in memory bandwidth; and overall performance was
pretty much the same.Just what did impress us was the reduced power draw, with the Micro 2 sucking 63W from the wall at idle,and 349W at load. Although not as low as the Sabertooth, it stomped under Asus’s
newest X99 Strix Gaming. Speaking of gaming, yet once again we scored an impressive average of 42 frames per second in the
Far Cry Primal 4K benchmark, but with a slightly lower overall score in 3DMark Fire
Strike Extreme, at 9,603.
EVGA’s BIOS is extremely clean.The overall format is simple and straight to the point-there’s no advanced
mode buttons here-and mashing that Delete key draws you directly into the OC section.On the other hand,there are controls that we wish we had access to (power phase optimization,for example),which both MSI and Asus provide access to-they seem
to be hidden away here,closed behind imaginary walls. That aside, we managed
an amazing 4.3GHz out of the Micro 2,
on only 1.3V-the lowest we’ve seen to date.Even though predominantly dependent
on the chip, the motherboard really does play a part in voltage control, usually through
the control of VDrop-the voltage that is basically provided by the motherboard
when the setting is input into the BIOS.In this situation, the Micro 2 blew us out with a
0.1V difference between our prescribed setting and how much it actually needed to
preserve that overclock.evga-x99-micro-2__
Therefore,does the EVGA Micro 2 fulfill our X99 needs? It certainly does.It’s inexpensive,
performs very well,and in today’s age of two-way optimum SLI and PCIe storage
solutions,keeps us more than satisfied.

Audi R8 V10 Spyder second generation-540PS@7,800rpm

The new Audi R8 Spyder speaks to the second era of the auto, and in that sense a great part of the auto is new. As ever,
Audi’s objective was to make an auto that exceeds the past one, exceeds its companions, and meets the new discharge and economy necessities. Audi says its objective was *speedier, stiffer, lighter*.audi-r8-v10-spyder__

Floor the throttle and the wonderful 7-speed S Tronic changes three gears down. There’s a respite practically as though you were in a toon where the legs begin turning yet the development is coming next. And afterward with
a surprisingly irate and noisy roar, the Audi shoots forward with a savagery that you basically don’t anticipate. Particularly when you take note of that it does likewise yet with significantly more tastefulness and limitation when you
try not to have the exhaust valve open.Actually,this roar, the popping and burbling on the invade or trailing throttle turned into the things I was dependent on for the length of the drive.What’s more, trust me, when all the schoolboys and
young ladies need to hear it, you need to oblige.Be that as it may, this mischievousness does not mean
Audi overlooked its emanations and economy duties. The R8 will drift with both grips separated and can deactivate a bank of barrels when required at low loads. Combined with the standard start-stop system, Audi says the R8 is prepared to do
overseeing 8.6kmpl.

I’ve as of now specified how great the transmission is,however the Quattro all-wheeldrive must get credit too.The all-wheel drive grasp is presently water-cooled and it can divert 100 for each penny of the torque to one
wheel if necessary. It is further bolstered by a mechanical locking differential at the back.
The Audi Drive Select offers four settings,counting Dynamic and Comfort. Yet, in the event that you select the R8 execution calfskin guiding wheel (the majority of the test autos had these), it includes an execution catch with a checkered hail symbol on it. This button, when squeezed,
chooses execution mode and spinning the knurled ring chooses the settings for dry, wet and snow execution. We had
completely dry climate and most auto course and beach front streets with low speed limits, so the
investigation of the system should hold up for a more helpful environment.

Up front is the honeycomb grille that Audi calls the SingleFrame which is more extensive and lower than prior. The carbon tips on the splitter on our splendidly shaded autos look awesome as well! The LED headlights are
presently flanked by the discretionary Audi laser light framework identifiable by lit blue separators
inside the front lamp. Too terrible, we never got to see the laser light in real life however. For
down-force, Audi has included a huge diffuser,also, the side-blade configuration has been upgraded as

I might want to inform you regarding how much Audi has finished with the infotainment system also – receivers in the
headrests and so on. However, the fact is that the Audi R8 V10 Spyder is an exceptionally affable sportscar.
The execution and particularly the sound is incredible, and the mix of inch-perfect taking care of and a supple (for a car this fast) ride is a brilliant feeling.Not surprisingly, Audi will have an entire host of
alternatives and embellishments that you can deck the R8 Spyder with when the auto goes on sale amongst May and August 2017.

Compact SUV – Audi Q5 with Allroad’s Quattro Ultra technology

The new Audi Q5 has grown in almost every direction: wheelbase, knee- and headroom,as well as luggage and utility space. A mix of lightweight materials, among which Audi’s structural staple, aluminium, plays an integral part, and the new Q5’s kerb weight has been reduced by as much as 90 kg over
its predecessor.

2,0 TDI 120 kW
2,0 TDI 140 kW
3,0 TDI 210 kW
2,0T FSI 185 kWaudiq5__

The new Audi Q5 compact SUV places efficiency front and centre.The new body design boasts a class-benchmark
drag coefficient of just 0,30, with the inclusion of the new A4 Allroad’s Quattro Ultra technology, which disengages
drive to the rear wheels to reduce mechanical drag, realising a 0,3 L/100 km saving on its own. Ultra technology
will be offered in four-cylinder models, while six-cylinder models will feature Quattro with a centre-locking diff as
standard and a sport diff as an option.

The Q5 borrows radar-assisted driver-assistance systems from the Q7, including collision-avoidance assist-helps steer the
car around an obstacle- turn assist -brakes the car during a slow turn if oncoming traffic
cuts across-and traffic-jam assist -semi-autonomous steering and braking.audiq5-1__ audiq5___1

A new five-link suspension setup, both front and rear, will strike a neat balance between
fleet-footedness and comfort. An optional adaptive air-suspension system will also be offered.

Fantastic car, brand new Nissan Micra 5th generation

The brand new Nissan Micra,now in its 5th generation, will be built coupled with the Clio at Renault’s factory in Flins, France and shares some of the car’s underpinnings.The hottest Micra is more concentrated to European tastes compared to its lucklustre predecessor, that was made in India and had a low-rent feel to the cabin items.

Taking its design signs from the Sway concept car from the 2015 Geneva motor show,the brand-new Nissan Micra is longer,lower and wider than its predecessor,giving you extra interior space for residents,for which Nissan claims is best-in-class.The rear door handles are hidden in the rear pillar,the roofline seems to be floating and incorporates a spoiler,while up front there’s a unique V-shaped grille.Significant work has been carried out to minimize cabin noise,while aerodynamic efficiency is top-notch for a small car at just 0.29 Cd.nissan_micra__

Technology plays an crucial part,with lane departure prevention,autonomous emergency braking
with pedestrian recognition,traffic sign identification, high beam support for the
headlights, and blind spot signal offered on all models.There’s also an smart 360 degree digital camera system and a seven-inch colour display that gives access to functions like Apple CarPlay,downloadable applications and the
navigation system.Nissan has teamed up with Bose for a new six-speaker sound system that uniquely incorporates
a pair of UltraNearfield stereo speakers that are built in into the driver’s head rest.nissanmicra__

The engine range is brought bangup-to-date with a choice of an 89bhp 1.5-litre dCi turbo diesel unit or 89bhp 0.9-
litre turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine,although a normally aspirated 72bhp
1.0-litre powerplant will join the range soon after and will act as entry point for the new Micra series.The range will consist of five trim amounts,kicking off with Visia, Visia+, Acenta, Acenta+ and primary Tekna.A palette of 10 colours will be on offer,such as bright Energy Orange, with the option to colour co-ordinate the interior,as well.Although it’s
a little early to predict costs, a Nissan spokesman said that they will price the Micra in-range with its main opponents
like the Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Polo when it comes in showrooms next March.That puts the cheapest diesel model at approximately £15,000 for a middle-range Acenta

One casualty of the Micra’s improved dimensions is the Note mini-MPV which is expected to be discontinued next year. Nissan’s Sunderland plant will keep to build the Juke B-segment crossover, as well as the Qashqai, which is ready to get a facelift next summer,including the availability
of autonomous driving technology.

Alfa Romeo Stelvio-SUV with a sports pedigree

Alfa Romeo Stelvio -the beast! The engine is a 2.9-liter V6 TwinTurbo with 510 horsepower, and was developed in Ferrari. Matched with an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, which from Alfa argue that it is able to change the speed in Race mode for only 150 milliseconds. Up to 100km / h in just 4 seconds, and top speed is 285 km / h!alfa-romeo-stelvio-3__

Such performance Stelvio put on a par with Porsche Macan Turbo and Mercedes-AMG GLC 63. The Italian manufacturer also claims that the Stelvio be the fastest SUV on the Nürburgring.alfa-romeo-stelvio-1__alfa-romeo-stelvio-2__

First Maserati crossover-523hp-twin turbo LEVANTE

Maserati Levante crossover-built on the platform provided by the Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans.The Quattroporte’s leading engine is a 523hp,twin-turbo 3.8-liter V8.

Providing placed up far too long with outmoded infotainment,the Levante provides of a multimedia which can be new
program which integrates a touchscreen that is big two built-in circular settings positioned on the
transmission tunnel beside the 5 main keys which can be tough.Even though the working system is by and large easy to use, some features, such as the chair heater controls,conceal in a sub-menu. The cabin despite such small idiosyncrasies design strikes a proportion this is certainly likeable style and functionality. The chairs tend to be comfortable, the packaging is very big, and 580 litres of luggage space should be adequate for the grouped family levante[tie_list type=”thumbup”][/tie_list]
Among the list of Levante’s statements which can be main fame will be the best in-class pull coefficient of 0.31, the extremely spacious back passenger compartment, the turning that is tight (11.7metres), the centre this is certainly reasonable of (just 610 mm above street level),the high-speed stability that is aerodynamic as well as the
Astonishing acceleration that is lateral0.95 G max).maserati_levante__

The Levante comes from the Ghibli and Quattroporte elements ready,not the Jeep Grand Cherokee as initially intended.The brand name,new hence aluminium-intensive SUV is 189 kg heavier than the smaller notchback at 2,205 kg in diesel guise. Despite its Bulk,momentum and size, the crossover that is roomy actually much more agile,more firmly grown and, on ideal
tyre size, much more satisfied than the cramped saloon.
Our oil-burner runs on complementing 20-inches shod with 265/45 and 295/40 rubber. The Levante could be the never
grand-master of cushiness, however in this setup it definitely out-smooths the M that is even stiffer, SVR and
GTS rivals. Built by FIAT Group’s VM Motori and made up of a 95 % lambswool and five % cashmere combine, the diesel is a torque-monster this is certainly harsh frightens the lubricant out from the AWD system whenever it draws its awesome 600 Nm of torque away from its crankcase.However,this engine dislikes revs that are high the level so it won’t accept kick-down requests above 3,000 RPM. In every various other topics,bar NVH, the 3.0-litre unit gets markings that are steady
0-100 km/h in 6.9 seconds is borderline on that is acceptable report and feels sensibly nippy, and a speed that is top of
km/h shackled to 14 km/l sounds fine to us.

Although the change to electric power steering is necessary to comply with future assistance systems,the Levante still relies on the traditional hydraulic steering.It feels good and meaty most of the time, turns in with precision,
unwinds lock with interest and provides the right amount of feedback. But it lacks the car parking speed lightness we
have become used to, and the holding forces through very fast corners are, well, considerable.Air suspension makes the
ride definitely better, the sense of relaxed conformity interrupted only by some pattering and slapping on
damaged surfaces.levante__

I can’t really resist a go in the V6 fuel-powered Levante S,which is a different monster.More sophisticated,more vocal, more effective: 0-100 km/h in 5.2 seconds, top speed of 266 km/h.Unfortunately, our car was equipped with 21-inch wheels,
which look sweet,but kill the ride and tram-line such as silverfishes.But listen to that breathtaking noise!

Volvo XC90-Top quality,best possible active and passive safety

Volvo XC90 offers premium luxury, superior technology, excellent driving dynamics and a better quality!
Volvo is by far the most famous Swedish brand. Swedish steel at Volvo’s philosophy is the backbone of the production of safe cars. Volvo’s engineers do not want to play with the standards of Euro NCAP crash test, but also offer passengers a higher level of security than standardized. How very few of their passengers ended up in the morgue, better advertisement for the safety they did not need. Safety is what Volvo’s engineers in the first place for decades.

In the first few years after the takeover of Volvo by Chinese investors, engineers Göteborg have persuaded the Chinese that their plan is too ambitious and that it is not possible to win the German trio. Swedish engineers have proposed to design less expensive SUV that will not lag behind a lot of models from Germany. The company Geely Holding, which owns the brand Volvo, has not accepted the old strategy of Swedes who for decades experienced a fiasco. The Chinese knew that this losing strategy, which lasted half a century, will not yield results: stupid is always doing the same thing and expect a different outcome. That’s why Volvo’s engineers were forced to make a better car than Mercedes. The result is in front of you: XC 90 is the best SUV in the

Brand reputation painstakingly created and the Chinese were aware that it is not enough to make a better car than Mercedes if he has a Chinese name. That’s why they bought Volvo – because of the name and image of the Swedish brand, which is in its golden years, with the famous model 240 (242/244/245), dominated on the US market. The Chinese want to take over Volvo impose American buyer because these is the European market at the moment not enough large and attractive as earnings concerns.
Volvo XC90 surpasses all possible standards when it comes to security, because what this model has, Euro NCAP can not test it. Competition led by Mercedes, Audi and BMW largely copied solutions with the Swedish car and will copy them in the following years. This is great because there is a chance that the German trio for a few years in this class to offer equally a safe car (although personally I doubt it) what Volvo is now
The intelligent car is a better car. So say the Swedes. That is why Volvo has developed the currently most sophisticated system in the auto industry, Sensus system, which combines all the functions. This panel uses infrared technology to, as opposed to the standard touchscreen capacitive screen, you can use it with kid gloves.
It is interesting that in the interior of the XC90 model thanks to the pooling of a large number of functions on the central screen, the switch is only eight to 35, what is the average in this class. In addition to the main display and a digital instrument panel, the car is equipped with a head-up

This Volvo now has better traction than any other German car in its class. It is also extremely maneuverable at speeds over 200 km / h, so much so that it deserves more than the best marks for stability.
Model XC90 marks the beginning of a new chapter in the history of Volvo Car Group, incorporating new technological innovation brand new platform Scalable Product Architecture (SPA). With the active air suspension on all wheels (Four Corner Active Air Suspension), XC90 becomes even more versatile. The driver can choose different ways to drive that meet the individual driving styles and increase the versatility of the car under all conditions and in different weather conditions. With Comfort, Eco, Dynamic and Off-road modes there is the Individual mode, which can be adjusted according to personal preferences and driving style.

Automatic selection of height and adjust the height of the vehicle at high speeds, when the suspension is automatically lowered by 10 mm at speeds of 100 to 120 km / h, contributing to stability and comfort.
Brake Support system I especially like to commend. He prepares Brake Assist for the car suddenly stop moving the brake pads is very close to the disc when the gas suddenly drop. Emergency Brake Assist boosts braking force, and there are systems to help with hill starts, and system Downhill Assist Control – Hill Descent Control. This system automatically maintains a vehicle speed of 10 km / h when driving forward, and 7 km / h when driving backwards downhill.

Maximum power of 235 hp certainly be felt, even though the car has 1,600 kg but powerful engine is worthless without RATHER LARGE high torque of 470 Nm, which is already available at 1,750 rpm., So they gear acceleration impressively short. The automatic transmission is efficient enough. From A 100 km / h from a standstill comes in 7.6 s (measured) – factory was modest – 7.8 s promises, while colleagues in Germany did not achieve better than 8.7 s. Engine wants to withdraw and 1,300 rpm. and when he goes into the red cycles, this car does not give up. Volvo XC90 is very well insulated – at a speed of 100 km / h, to the passengers coming the noise of 61 dB.

Volvo XC90 is the fastest on the track and reaches an average speed of 88 km / h, with the sudden change of direction on a wet road – Mercedes only 80 km / h, and that’s a huge

[tie_list type=”plus”][/tie_list]ADVANTAGES: Excellent, best possible active and passive safety. Exceptional comfortable, basic – the best sound insulation in class. Excellent fuel-efficient engine of 235 hp, which is sufficiently flexible and robust for overtaking. Superior suspension – a real compromise between the cozy and very cozy suspension. Able to withstand lateral acceleration of 0.94. A great offer of space, and there is a lot of space in the back seat. The large trunk of 635 liters is highly variable. The rich standard equipment. Excellent quality and reliability should be even better (now it is too early for such a review). Very good finishing and better ergonomics. In the beginning, the customer offers a hybrid version. Exceptional little tiring on long journeys. Powerful headlights offer a wide and deep bundle – the best in its class. Top brakes in its class (at a speed of 100 km / h to standstill exceed 39 m). Original, distinctive design – pleasing interior.

[tie_list type=”minus”][/tie_list]DISADVANTAGES: The range of engines is really poor – just one diesel engine with two power versions.
The maximum speed of 220 km / h is less than the competition with more powerful engines. Automatic transmission is not a quick and coordinated as good as the one in the Audi Q7.Price: from € 61,500
