Hardware Roundup: February 2020 Third Weekend Edition

Recommended Posts


February is rolling right along, with plenty to dive into this month. Last weekend was filled with sickness for me, but we're back at it this weekend to cover all the news and review from the last two weeks at OCC and our affiliates. We have a review of the new game KUNAI, which is a new take on the Metroidvania style of games that could be quite appealing and exciting. The PowerColor Red Devil RX 5600 XT gets put to the test to see what this new budget offering brings to the table and if it's something you should be considering for an upgrade. There's also a look at the Corsair A500 Air CPU cooler, marking Corsair's first non-liquid cooler in a decade. You can also check out our video review of the Corsair A500 as well, so you can see how it works (and looks) in action.

As for our affiliates, there's a little bit of everything for your viewing pleasure. The massive, 64-core AMD Threadripper 3990X gets reviewed to showcase what this beast can do, as long as you have a spare $4,000 at hand. There are a couple looks at the AMD RX 5600 XT, including one where it's pitted against the GeForce GTX 1060 and 1070 in a massive 32 game benchmark to see how each one holds up. There's also a review of the MSI Radeon RX 5500 XT Gaming X video card for an even more budget-friendly option that can still dish out the performance. Flipping over to the NVIDIA side, the EVGA RTX 2060 KO video card gets put to the test to see what the custom cooler and PCB bring to your games. It's a video card world we're in, with so many options vying for your dollar, but luckily we always have reviews to help you decide where your money goes best. Especially when drivers might be letting things down for one of the teams and its products.

There's far more to get to as well, from a be quiet! case to the Corsair iCUE H115i RGB PRO XT Liquid CPU Cooler. We've got a few headsets of the wireless variety, including one that's right at home on everyone's favorite frogger from Overwatch. There's even a look ahead at the future of tech with the upcoming PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X to see what kind of hardware these will be packing when they arrive at the end of the year, and much more, so check it all out below!
