#ThrowbackThursday Enthusiasts have been pushing the limits of silicon for as long as microprocessors have existed. These are but a few of the landmark processors revered for their overclocking prowess.
TechSpot's Best Monitors guide gets you top-level recommendations for professionals, enthusiast products that are great for work and play, monitors designed purely for gaming, and some noteworthy budget options.
Small form factor PCs are a niche corner of the PC market that's becoming more accessible than ever. Many SFF PCs are similar in size to the latest gaming consoles, but there's more to do than just game on a PC.
Beyond learning how the GeForce RTX 3070 performs, this article discusses Asus and MSI's custom RTX 3070 graphics cards which are in direct competition to Nvidia's own Founders Edition model.
Will history repeat itself? Intel's setting out to make a name for itself in the discrete GPU space with its upcoming Xe-HP GPU lineup. We look at Project Larrabee - the last time Intel tried making a graphics card - to understand how things might turn out.
#ThrowBackThursday Learn all that you can do in the Windows Command Prompt, from useful commands everyone should know to more advanced tweaks and troubleshooting features.
Following up to last week's load time battle, instead of comparing storage with vastly different performance specs, today we're going to see how CPUs can make a difference in game loading times.
What sort of storage do you need to play today's games and provide the best loading times? Do you need a PCIe drive? Do you need something with a DRAM cache? Let's find out.
The Acer Swift 3 is the company's first ultraportable to be Project Athena-certified which features instant wake up, powerful internal hardware, long battery life, fast network connectivity, and a small form factor. Let's see how that translates in the real world.
#ThrowBackThursday Many have tried to follow Intel co-founder Gordon Moore (of Moore's Law fame) in bringing their tech predictions into the public eye... with varying degrees of success. Every year for nearly a decade, we've revisited this TechSpot original feature to bring new quotes to your attention. Here's a taste of those now infamous quotes.
You've just bought a new gaming desktop, or a laptop for the office. Maybe you've upgraded your PC with a new CPU and motherboard. You might be into overclocking. But do you know exactly what you've got? How well is that PC actually working? We've compiled a list of 21 programs that are great for analyzing or benchmarking your devices.
It's time we get to explore something we've been eager to investigate since our day-one GeForce RTX 3080 review, and that's the weaker-than-expected resolution scaling of the new Ampere architecture.
#ThrowBackThursday The PC business as we know it owes itself to an environment of enthusiasts, entrepreneurs and happenstance. The invention of the microprocessor, DRAM, and EPROM integrated circuits would help bring computing to the mainstream. This 5-part series explores the history of personal computing, from the invention of the transistor to modern day chips powering our connected devices.
