Hardware Roundup: Thursday, February 14, 2019, Edition

14 February 2019 - 05:23 AM

St. Valentine's Day is here, with a couple of items to check out if you need that last minute idea for your sweetie. There's a review of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q for laptops, with the Gigabyte Aero 15 X9 loaded up with it to see what it can do. Our other item for today is a look at the Kingston DataTraveler Bolt Duo flash drive, which can connect to your iPhone in order to free up space or just provide an easier means of storing your data while on the go.

We have a couple of items for you to check out on this Tuesday, starting with a video card. The MSI GeForce RTX 2060 Ventus 6G OC video card gets tested to see what it can do with its custom cooler, full-cover backplate, and for just a small price increase over the Founders Edition. Our other item for the day is a look at the best tablets you can buy right now to fit whatever your need is for one.

Hardware Roundup: Monday, February 11, 2019, Edition

11 February 2019 - 05:27 AM

A new week is upon us, with a few items to get things started for you. There's a huge benchmark of the new AMD Radeon VII video card in a 36 game test that pits it against the likes of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 and GTX 1080 Ti, plus the AMD Vega 64, to see where it falls in the performance spectrum. If you're after a new build, perhaps the SuperMicro C9Z390-PGW motherboard is for you, as it features the Intel Z390 chipset, server-quality hardware for the VRMs, and even built-in WiFi and Bluetooth. We finish things off today with a new case from FSP, as it's branching out from power supplies with its CMT340 case that's small yet capable of fitting a 360mm radiator.

Friday has arrived at last, with a few items for you to check out. We start off with a review of the AMD Radeon VII, the company's new flagship video card packed with 16GB of HBM2 and is manufactured on the 7nm process. There's a comparison of TN, VA, and IPS panels to give you an idea of what to look for when buying your next monitor beyond just the resolution and response time. Wrapping things up is a look at 20 of the worst PC setups seen during January.
