AMD's Zen 4-based Ryzen 7000 processors have attractive performance, but their value proposition is questionable. That's due to the cost of entry: you need speedy DDR5 memory for the best performance, and the available X670 motherboards aren't cheap. Inexpensive B650-based boards are on the way, with AMD holding a... Read more...
In the wake of the GeForce Beyond presentation on Tuesday, with all the official tech details extensively reported, our attention turns to what NVIDIA partners are adding to the RTX 40 offer. NVIDIA reference models of the new GeForce RTX 4090 24GB, RTX 4080 16GB and RTX 4070 4080 12GB have been analyzed in some... Read more...
It's taken a few months but Project Stealth, the joint collaboration between Maingear and Gigabyte to turn cable management on its head, is now available to configure and purchase. Pricing on the innovative prebuilt gaming desktop starts at $1,999, though before we get to the stock and customizable part selections... Read more...
It's widely expected that NVIDIA will unveil its next-generation GeForce RTX 40 series graphics cards based on Ada Lovelace at GTC next week, so the wait for concrete details is likely coming to an end very soon. In the meantime, various leaks and rumors may be cluing us into some details ahead of NVIDIA's launch. One... Read more...
Do you need to blast files around your network at ludicrous speeds? Do you even have an external interface that can handle 10 gigabytes per second? Yes, that's gigabytes, not bits. We'll reckon that the answer is no, but don't let that stop you from gawping at this new Aorus Gen5 SSD 10000, so named for its typical... Read more...
Gigabyte is expanding its ever-growing laptop family with a couple of new product lines, including the 15.6-inch G5 series and 17.3-inch G7 series. Collectively there are half a dozen SKUs evenly spread out between the two, all six of which pair an Intel 12th Gen Core i5-12500H processor with one of three different... Read more...
Motherboard makers right now are collectively like, 'YOU get a BIOS update, YOU get a BIOS update, YOU get BIOS update', and, well, you get the idea. The reason for the influx of firmware upgrades is to get today's existing platforms ready for tomorrow's CPUs, those being Intel's next-gen Raptor Lake lineup sporting... Read more...
Gigabyte is apparently looking to blur the lines between what constitutes a big screen gaming monitor and a modest sized TV. Technically, the company's new S55U display is accurately listed as the former, but with a VA panel teetering on 55 inches (54.6-inch, to be precise) and Android powering its smart features, one...

If after all these years you still have not played Wolfenstein: The New Order, now is your chance to rectify that and see what all the fuss was about when it came out in 2014. It actually still stands up really well today. You can find that out for yourself, though, because it's this week's free blockbuster title at... Read more...
A lot of care and attention goes into crafting a pristine PC with cables and wiring deftly routed where they're barely visible, or not even seen at all. Quite frankly, it's a laborious process. Could there be an easier way, though? There is, and Project Stealth by Maingear and Gigabyte proves it with an ingenious... Read more...
At this point, the it feels like a foregone conclusion that AMD will refresh its Radeon RX 6000 series with a few upgraded models, including the Radeon RX 6950 XT, Radeon RX 6750 XT, and Radeon RX 6650 XT. They're coming, unless the growing pile of leaks and rumors are all off target. And we can add one more to the... Read more...
Gigabyte today announced the BRIX Extreme, calling it the "most powerful mini PC in the world." That's probably dialing up the marketing hype a notch above where it should be, but bold claim aside, these new BRIX Extreme systems look both attractive (from the renders we've seen) and capable (from the spec sheet and...

Intel recently expanded its lineup of Alder Lake processors with several new additions, among them the Pentium Gold G7400T, one of the least expensive chips in the lineup. Priced at $64 (in trays of 1,000 units), it's very much a budget chip. Apparently it's also capable of big overclocks even though it has a locked... Read more...
Every passing day seems to bring with it a new graphics card rumor, and given that NVIDIA recently added an upgraded GeForce RTX 3080 with more memory and CUDA cores to the mix, it's worth paying attention to the leaks. And what do those leaks tell us now? That NVIDIA is likely to upgrade its GeForce RTX 3070 Ti as... Read more...
We've covered a bunch of gaming laptops announced at CES (or just ahead of CES, since the event officially kicks off today, but whatever), but don't worry if you're a creator, there are new notebooks aimed at you as well. In fact, you are the target of Gigabyte's new Aero 16, Aero 17, and Aero 5 laptops, all of which... Read more...
We recently became aware of Gigabyte's beautiful Aorus Project Stealth PC concept, with connectors and cable routing moved behind the motherboard deck, in what seemed to be a truly innovative gaming desktop design with better air flow and an easier build process. It appears, however, that Maingear patented the design... Read more...
A image shared to Twitter yesterday by Gigabyte's Aorus France division is generating some buzz and excitement among PC builders, as the design has the potential to vastly improve cable management and, by extension, airflow of modern gaming PCs and workstations. While incredibly nifty, there's just one potential... Read more...
Hot on the heels of NVIDIA launching a refreshed GeForce RTX 2060 with 12GB of GDDR6 memory, which is twice as much as the original version, two other existing models appear bound for more onboard memory too. They include the GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, both of which are modern generation cards based on... Read more...
When we tested Intel's latest and greatest desktop CPUs, the 12th-generation Core family codenamed "Alder Lake," we found them to have world-beating gaming performance. That's thanks in large part to the refinements made to its "Golden Cove" P-cores over the "Willow Cove" cores used in Rocket Lake, which we can infer... Read more...
As time goes on rumors continue to swirl that NVIDIA will rehash its GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card from its previous generation Turing stack, but equip it with 12GB of GDDR6 memory.
