In the 20+ years since the Fallout franchise was introduced to the world, all of the games have been met with praise---which means that ranking them isn't easy. It's especially difficult to pit the games against each other when you consider that the post-nuclear franchise underwent a genre change.
After recently retesting the GeForce GTX 580 eight years after its release, we thought it would be interesting to check back in on the GTX 680, another old friend that was released about six years ago as Nvidia's latest and greatest graphics card and a successor to the aforementioned 580.
Acer's brand new and very interesting Switch 7 is a high-end tablet with a kickstand and detachable keyboard. Making this 13.5" tablet unique are its fanless internals that include a quad core i7-8550U and discrete GeForce MX150 graphics.
Today we're checking out Asrock's latest DeskMini PC, a name that may ring a bell if you read our review of the original a couple of years ago. The latest version features support for MXM mobile GPUs (GTX 1060 or GTX 1080) and Intel's 8th-gen Core series on a small 2.7L chassis.
If you want to push your CPU to the point where it begs for mercy, you're going to need a good cooler. Like most PC components, there are different options for those with different wants and needs. We've rounded up what we believe are the best in each category by taking into account performance, price, noise levels, and design.
We've learned most of what there is to know about AMD's new Vega-infused CPUs, but those of you thinking about buying the Ryzen 3 2200G or Ryzen 5 2400G after seeing how it competent it is as a budget gaming platform may be asking yourselves whether the chip would be best installed on an A320 or B350 motherboard.
Although 5G may seem like just another generational wireless upgrade, touting more speed and less latency, the years-long migration will require an expansion of cellular networks worldwide to include millions of new antennas that will become the backbone of IoT and its billions of sensor-laden devices, from smart dust to smart cars.
Today we'll be taking a break from our typical PC hardware benchmarking sessions to check out a slick new computer case from Corsair. It's been quite a few years since Corsair has refreshed the Obsidian lineup but that changes today with the introduction of its new $150 Obsidian Series 500D.
Today we'll be overclocking AMD's Ryzen 3 2200G to the max with a $20 air cooler. Now, you might be questioning the idea given this is a $100 APU that already ships with the more than decent Wraith Stealth. However, we've been keen to see how much more can be extracted from the APU...
Unlike a typical discrete graphics card, most integrated graphics solutions like the one on AMD's new Raven Ridge desktop APUs don't have their own dedicated memory. Instead AM4 motherboards let you set the video memory somewhere between 64MB and 2GB. Let us explain what that means.
If you've looked into purchasing a TV in recent years, you've been perhaps overwhelmed by the jargon and conflicting information. Indeed, there's a lot of misinformation out there, so to help you filter it out, we've debunked some commonly held beliefs about buying a TV.
Last year, we briefly looked at external GPUs when we reviewed the Aorus GTX 1070 Gaming Box attached to a Kaby Lake-powered ultraportable. Now that Intel's 8th gen CPUs are widely available in a range of ultrabooks, with significant performance gains in hand, it's the perfect time to revisit eGPUs and determine whether the hard CPU bottleneck still exists in most games.
Updating its entry-level and mid-range product lines, AMD's new Ryzen 5 2400G and Ryzen 3 2200G APUs are set to replace nearly all of the company's offerings under $200. Making these chips special is the integration of Radeon Vega graphics for budget desktop PCs.
The new HP Spectre 13 x360 is an interesting ultraportable. It sits at the top of HP's product line-up alongside its non-convertible Spectre brother and like many laptops released in the last few months, it is powered by Intel's latest quad-core 8th gen mobile CPUs.
The Chuwi Lapbook Air is billed as an ultraportable 14-inch machine with a price tag of just $430. This puts it in the realm of some of the cheapest Windows laptops on the market of this display size. Chromebooks are also available for $400 or less, but let's just put those over in the dunce corner for now, because we're mostly interested in true Windows systems.
It took Civilization V two full expansions to become the classic it's regarded as today. Civilization VI is halfway there. There's lots of new stuff on offer in this expansion, from UI tweaks to new factions, but I'm not here to rattle off bullet points. I'm instead going to be talking about R&F's three main additions, and how they all work together to change the way each game of Civ VI feels.
Today we are investigating two commonly asked questions about gaming laptops: what's the performance like on battery and how long do these laptops last in games? We'll also explore if battery life can be extended in any way; and do less powerful systems last longer?
Best known as the immutable database that runs underneath cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum, blockchain is poised to play a critical role in every industry imaginable as businesses seek ways to cash in on the distributed ledger technology's promise of enabling a "trustless" consensus to validate transactions.
Today we're checking out Final Fantasy XV CPU performance using the new standalone benchmark released ahead of next month's PC launch. The reason we want to look at CPU performance first is because the game is extremely CPU intensive, far more so than we were expecting.
The Asus ROG Strix XG35VQ monitor comes packed with features bringing a ton of value if you're after a killer ultrawide gaming experience: 35" 3440 x 1440 VA with a 1800R curve, 100Hz refresh rate, and FreeSync support.
Today we're turning our clocks all the way back to November 2010 to revisit the once mighty GeForce GTX 580, a card that marked the transition from 55nm to 40nm for Nvidia's high-end GPUs and helped the company sweep its Fermi-based GeForce GTX 480 under the rug.
