Technology showcases are one thing, but I have to tip my cap at AMD for its full Hangar 21 technology demonstration, because it is intelligently annotated to point out aspects of the rendered scenes that might otherwise go overlooked or underappreciated. Even if you have already decided that Ampere is the GPU for you... Read more...
Black Friday is fast approaching, but that hasn't stopped retailers and companies from offering their own early discounts ahead of next week. The latest company to jump on the bandwagon is DJI, which not only makes popular aerial drones, but also stabilized cameras that you can use to capture action shots. The... Read more...
The latest generation MacBook Pro and MacBook Air represent a major departure from past models—they are the first ones to incorporate Apple's own custom M1 silicon, in place of the Intel x86 CPUs the company had been sourcing for the past 15 years. It is the beginning of a new era. You would not know it at first... Read more...
It looks as though relief for enthusiasts isn't coming anytime soon if you want one of NVIDIA's highly rated GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards. NVIDIA has cited overwhelming demand as it struggles to not only deliver its own Founders Edition cards to customers, but also GPUs that find their way into custom boards... Read more...
If “password” is one of your passwords, perhaps you should rethink some of your life choices. NordPass, the company also behind NordVPN, has compiled this year’s top 200 most commonly used passwords. Not only does the company list the passwords, but it shows how long it takes to crack each one. This is an interesting... Read more...
Whoever buys the most stuff wins, right? Maybe not (definitely not), but if 2020 taught us anything at all, it's that the world is probably going to end soon anyway, so you might as well splurge. This is the best time of the year to do that, incidentally, with Black Friday right around the corner. As in, tomorrow. Say... Read more...
It should come as no surprise that there's been a lot of hype surrounding the release of Cyberpunk 2077. It doesn't help that the game has been delayed multiple times, which has drawn even more attention to CD Projekt Red's latest masterpiece. With that being said, if you haven't already preordered the game on any... Read more...
In 2019, Google began the rollout of RCS, or rich communication services, across the United States on Android. RCS brings some cool new features to Android messaging, dragging it into the modern era. Google has finally completed the project and will start addressing some of the biggest concerns, such as security, with... Read more...
Black Friday isn't even here yet, but we've already seen some pretty good deals on various electronic devices including smartphone (like yesterday's OnePlus deals). However, today we have a stellar deal on one of Samsung's popular new releases: the Galaxy S20 Fan Edition (FE). The smartphone has an MSRP of $699... Read more...
Intel's 10-nanometer Tiger Lake processors have one of the fastest CPU architectures available in Windows notebooks today. That's not to say they've got the fastest overall CPUs, though. There are competing mobile processors available with more cores and support for additional threads that are better suited for complex, multi-threaded tasks.... Read more...
Apple is gambling on itself and its ability to design custom silicon for its entire range of Mac devices, as part of a two-year plan to transition away from x86 Intel CPUs. To get things started, Apple recently introduced a new MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and Mac mini, all powered by an M1 system-on-chip based... Read more...
While it might seem a bit outside the norm, Intel is launching its very on laptop. And in a sense, this is a logical extension of the company's existing NUC family of small form-factor desktop PCs. With that, we present Intel's new NUC M15 -- developed under the codename Bishop County -- which will be offered to its channel partners to rebrand Read more...
We are not going to lie -- the upcoming Among Us update looks sus. Among Us fans will be excited to hear that a new map is on its way, and developer InnerSloth recently teased an image of this map on Twitter. The picture from Twitter spotlights a large, open cockpit. Other Among Us maps feature derelict locations that... Read more...
In September, Apple revealed new App Store guidelines for game streaming apps. However, these rules were not conducive to streaming as they required games to be downloaded first from the App Store. This sort of requirement is not workable, so companies such as Microsoft with Project xCloud and NVIDIA with GeForce NOW... Read more...
Do you see that off in the distance? That's right, it's a series of leaked benchmark results that stretches as far as the eye can see, almost indefinitely. If there is a new CPU or GPU on the horizon, you can bet there will be purported benchmark results before it actually launches. And so it goes with both an AMD... Read more...
This has been one hell of a year in many respects, and so it is only appropriate that 2020 comes to an end with the devil making an appearance. The "Red Devil," that is, once again summoned by PowerColor, this time to torture games for all of eternity (or at least the next few years) with factory overclocked Radeon RX... Read more...
Finding an Xbox Series X or PlayStation 5 in stock these days is seemingly a fruitless endeavor. Even HotHardware staffers around here have struck out over and over again attempting to score just one of the consoles for ourselves, yet we keep persisting despite the unfavorable odds. With that being said, Walmart is... Read more...
Today, Apple got “into the holiday spirit” by dropping its royalty rate from 30% to 15% for developers who earned less than $1 million in the last year. Epic Games and Spotify, who both reside in the Coalition for App Fairness, were quick to call out this move. They essentially claimed it as a way for Apple to divide... Read more...
From personal devices to more broad applications, facial recognition and AI are becoming a large part of all types of technology and applications. Earlier this year, Amazon banned law enforcement from using its facial recognition software. The hope was that legislation could be passed to prevent law enforcement's use... Read more...
It's time for Apple to face the music [again] when it comes to “throttlegate”, which came to a head nearly three years ago after it was determined that the company was throttling the performance of iPhones that had chemically aged past a certain threshold (usually around 80 percent or below original capacity). Once... Read more...
Fortnite remains one of the most popular games around, and is a veritable golden goose for developer Epic Games, despite being free-to-play (there is big money earned through in-game purchases). Perhaps in an attempt to ensure it stays that way, Epic Games has just added a new and intriguing feature to Fornite, that... Read more...
Godfall launched last week for PC, and as we reported earlier this month, the game didn't come with real time ray tracing effects enabled by default. While disappointing to gamers that wanted to get the best visuals fresh out of the box on launch day, we've got some good news and bad news for you regarding ray tracing... Read more...
