iXBT Labs - Computer Hardware in Detail






About iXBT Labs

iXBT Labs (former Digit-Life) is the official English version of iXBT.com, one of the top and most respected Moscow, Russia-based websites dedicated to reviewing all kinds of computer hardware since 1997. Launched in September 2000, iXBT Labs features the selected content of the original website — about 2,200 detailed reviews of the most important computer components (as of April 2011) — as well as the latest computer industry news.

iXBT Labs primarily focuses on processors, motherboards, chipsets, memory modules, graphics cards, and cooling systems. The secondary focus of interest is sound cards and multimedia products, mobile and input devices, storage devices, digital and video cameras, and networking solutions.

At that, iXBT Labs is striving to provide readers with the most complete, objective and useful information.


The iXBT Labs project is managed by a small team complemented by a host of authors writing for iXBT.com.

  • Artem Pavlenko — website management, review translation, editing, advertising, news, links, news/reviews exchange, forum administration, and whatever else there is.
  • Sergey Anokhin — website engine programming.
