If you read that headline and thought, "why would I want my gaming PC to be a showpiece?", this new PC case might not be for you. However, most DIY PCs these days are gaming PCs, and gaming PCs tend to be slick or showy and harness powerful hardware. In addition, since Moore's Law has slowed, powerful hardware is...

Alan Wake 2is just on the horizon, and its bone-crushing recommended spec sheet doesn't so much recommend powerful hardware as much as it does demand it. Even the minimum requirements to run the game call for pretty midrange GPUs, and that's just to play at 1080p and 30 FPS with DLSS or FSR enabled. The recommended... Read more...
While Intel's Arc Alchemist series is almost exclusively known for the Arc A750and Arc A770, which aremidrange gaming GPUs, there are several other members of the family. There's now another model you can get at retail: the Arc A310. The A310 technically launched late last year, right alongside the A750, but it was an... Read more...
The results are in for the most recent Steam survey and according to the numbers, NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3060 is now the most widely-represented GPU on the world's most popular digital distribution platform for games. To get there, it had to leapfrog the GeForce GTX 1650, a budget friendly graphics card released more... Read more...
Newegg has rolled out a GPU trade-in program that gives buyers varying amounts of credit on their old graphics cards when purchasing new ones. Ostensibly, this is a move to reduce to e-waste, though we'd like to see the actual buyers who are going around tossing GeForce RTX 3080 and Radeon RX 6800 cards into the garbage bin. Newegg's pat-on-the-back Read more...
Acer is getting ready to roll out an affordable line of Nitro V 15 gaming laptops consisting of at least half a dozen SKUs at varying price points, each one under a grand. The most expensive SKU (ANV15-51-75HE) comes in under the $1,000 threshold by a penny (before tax, anyway), while the least expensive model... Read more...
It's been a couple months since Intel announced it was halting investments into its popular NUC business while simultaneously hammering out a non-exclusive license agreement with ASUS to manufacture, sell, and support current and future NUC devices. Be that as it may, a new (sort of) NUC device has launched in Europe... Read more...
Gigabyte is adding to a small but growing pile of solid state drives (SSDs) that make use of the PCI Express 5.0 bus for faster throughput. That puts the company's new Aorus Gen5 12000 SSD in elite company. By our count, there are around half a dozen PCIe 5.0 SSD models (not including different capacity options)... Read more...
Memory overclocking performance has historically been a weak point of AMD's Ryzen processors. This is true even on Socket AM5; where Intel-based DDR5 rigs can hit 7000, 8000, all the way up to the world record of 11,202 MT/s, AMD systems tend to struggle to get much past 6000 MT/s. On the Socket AM4 platform, memory... Read more...
It's getting increasingly difficult to find an Intel Arc A770 graphics card that's both in stock and being sold from a first-party seller. That's a shame because the Arc A770 is a cost-effective solution for 1080p and 1440p gaming (and it's gotten better with time thanks to continued driver optimizations). ASRock... Read more...
Amazon's two-day Prime Day sales event is now just hours away (it kicks off at 12:00am PDT tonight and runs through the end of July 12) and there will be a flurry of deals to sift through, some better than others. However, if you're in the market for a flagship graphics card, you probably won't see a better bargain... Read more...
It took a country minute, but there's finally a mainstream graphics card available at retail that's based on NVIDIA's Ada Lovelace architecture, the GeForce RTX 4060 starting at $299. Technically you could call the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti a mainstream SKU as well. Fair enough, but as far as being the most affordable GeForce RTX 40 series product Read more...
Seagate just released its first solid state drive (SSD) line to make use of the PCI Express 5.0 bus, the FireCuda 540 series, and with it comes some much-needed competition to a small but growing segment. As you might imagine, Seagate is targeting "gamers, [content] creators, and tech enthusiasts" with its foray into... Read more...
The Intel Arc A770 Limited Edition is dead, long live the Arc A770! In a mildly surprising move, Intel quietly discontinued its own LE variant this week, with a Product Change Notification (PCN) outlining the graphics card's change in status. If you happen to own one, it's now a bit of a collector's item and has... Read more...
In late 2008, your author built a killer SFF PC using a Shuttle XPC case. Inside was a Core 2 Extreme QX9650, 16 GB of DDR3 memory, an Intel X25-M SSD, and a GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 graphics card. Unfortunately, he had to spend a couple of hours modifying the case to fit the big fat GeForce cardnot because of the... Read more...
There's an important distinction between a product's announcement and its actual release even if that's not always made clear in a press release or media coverage. We bring this up because MSI has pulled back the curtain on its Spatium M570 Pro, its newest flagship PCIe 5.0 solid state drive. It comes with the claim... Read more...
So we've got a new Radeon graphics card at $279, and it's not bad. There's also a new GeForce card at $399, and it's not bad either. The new GPUs don't really compete with each other given the price difference. Given that, then we suppose that if you want a new GPU under $300, grab the Radeon card, and if you've got more dosh, snag the GeForce. Read more...
Flagship processors are always going to command premium prices, but that doesn't mean you can't score a deal on the latest and greatest chips available. Now that AMD's Ryzen 9 7950X3D and Ryzen 9 7900X3D processors have been on the market for a minute, they're ripe for discounts that's exactly the situation right now... Read more...
So now that you've built yourself a fancy gaming PC around Intel's Raptor Lake or AMD's Zen 4 platform, you might find yourself wondering where the heck all the Gen 5 solid state drives are hiding out. After all, having all that extra PCIe throughput (2x that of PCIe 4.0) was one of the selling points, and that's even... Read more...
Perhaps as a sign of things to come, several retailers have discounted AMD's Ryzen Threadripper Pro 5000WX series processors based on the company's Zen 3 architecture. What about the Zen 4 lineup? AMD hasn't yet applied its latest-generation CPU architecture to the high-end desktop (HEDT) scene, though it's expected... Read more...
Anyone in the market for a higher end graphics card should talk a long, hard look at the Radeon RX 6950 XT. It released to retail just under a year ago at $1,099 after AMD briefly flirted with a $1,299 MSRP, and now 11 months later you can snag one for right around $599, which is the same price as NVIDIA's GeForce RTX...

CD Projekt Red recently rolled out an update to Cyberpunk 2077 that adds support for Intel's XeSS upscaling technology and according to Intel, owners of its Arc series discrete GPUs can expect a fairly substantial performance bump. As in, a massive 71 percent increase in average framerates when playing on an Arc A750... Read more...
