Pro Gamersware (PGW) brings together a range of brands that produce various products for gamers, including AeroCool, ThunderX3, Streamplefy and Gamiac. At Computex 2023, the manufacturer presented many fresh products from these brands, which we will discuss in this article.
Let’s start with perhaps the most famous of the listed brands – AeroCool. AeroCool Performance Nexus products or APNX for short were presented at the Taiwanese exhibition: fans, coolers, power supplies and cases. Representatives of this line are united by a minimalistic design and a wide variety of colors.
A feature of the APNX F1 and APNX F2 fans, which are available in versions with a diameter of 120 and 140 mm, is the thickness increased to 30 mm – the vast majority of computer fans have a thickness of 25 mm. According to the manufacturer, this increases efficiency by 50% compared to traditional solutions. At the same time, as noted in the company, thickened fans will still fit in most cases and can be installed on many coolers and air coolers.
APNX F2 fans differ from APNX F1 models in that they come with a replaceable impeller, which allows you to change the direction of the air flow without removing the fan itself. The novelties are equipped with customizable RGB lighting and will be available in a variety of colors, as seen in the photo. The fans are made in aluminum housings.
Similar to the fan above, the minimalistic design with aluminum shroud offers the APNX F1 4P air cooler. The manufacturer claims that the cooling system is capable of handling TPD up to 210W. The novelty is based on four copper heat pipes. There is a customizable multi-colored backlight, and installing the cooler does not require removing the fan.
AeroCool has assembled power supplies in the APNX P1 Gold series. These are, according to the manufacturer, the world’s first ATX format power supplies equipped with 30mm fans. This is also emphasized by the design of the new products – they are made in two colors, and one of the parts of the PSU shows how wide the fan is inside.
AeroCool introduced a PSU with power up to 1200 watts. All APNX P1 Golds are 80 Plus Gold Energy Efficient certified and comply with the current ATX 3.0 standard. The power supplies are fully modular. Only Japanese capacitors are used.
And AeroCool also introduced APNX C1 cases. They also have a minimalistic and very strict design, and will also be available in a variety of colors. The cases turned out to be very roomy (the exact parameters are not named), and they also have good ventilation due to perforated panels in front and on top. It is also noted that the panels can be easily removed without tools.
Under the ThunderX3 brand, computer chairs are produced, primarily gaming chairs. At Computex, the brand showed both completely new and already available models on the market. Of greatest interest here is just a new development – a chair in which there is a special large movable support insert in the back, which better adapts to the position of the user and thus provides better back support. These chairs are upholstered in fabric.
In addition, mesh chairs were shown, which provide good ventilation. There is no such supporting insert in the back, but the chair is still ergonomic. Finally, more affordable chairs were shown with traditional lumbar pillows, but in a large size.
An important feature of ThunderX3 chairs is the use of mechanisms of the SYNC family, which have a synchronous rocking mechanism with the ability to tilt forward, as well as support for seat depth adjustment. If usually the chair can only be adjusted in height, here you can also move it forward and backward. There is also another, more advanced mechanism for adjusting the tilt of the back of the chair and so on. ThunderX3 also offers chairs with different designs, more aggressive or more severe options, so that the user can choose a solution for their interior.
The Streamplify brand produces various peripherals and accessories for streamers and bloggers. At Computex, in addition to the products already on the market, the brand also showed a number of new products, including a new microphone and webcam.
Streamplify CAM PRO is an advanced webcam capable of capturing and streaming 4K video (3840×2160 pixels) at 30 FPS, while the previous CAM only supported 1080p at 60 FPS. The latter mode, by the way, the new model also supports. The design of the camera makes it easy to choose a good angle and foreshortening. The built-in microphones support stereo sound recording. Comes with a compact tripod.
Streamplify MIC PRO was also introduced – an advanced microphone for streaming, gaming, video recording, podcasts and more. It supports different modes: it can pick up sound from only one direction (cardiod) or from two directions (bidirectional), and also work as an omnidirectional microphone. This makes the device a versatile tool for a variety of usage scenarios: for example, when recording a podcast, bidirectional mode is suitable, and for streaming alone, cardioid mode is suitable.
Especially for streamers, Streamplify has released a special HUB DECK 5 hub that provides convenient control of lighting, camera, microphone, keyboard and other devices from one place. It supports connecting up to six devices via USB ports. The kit comes with interchangeable caps for buttons, which allows you to choose a nozzle for a particular device.
A universal MOUNT ARM bracket was also shown, which allows you to mount a webcam, microphone, backlight and other devices together. Thus, the entire set can be easily and quickly carried and adjusted.
Finally, PGW showed at its booth Gamiac peripherals and accessories, which are aimed at gamers and are presented in the budget price segment. The brand offers mechanical keyboards, mice, mousepads and headsets.
At the same time, the devices have some features of more expensive solutions. For example, for gaming mice, it is possible to change the top from solid to perforated. And the sensor resolution is 16,000 DPI. Mechanical keyboards use hot swappable Kailh switches.
