Today is AMD's 50th anniversary, and the company's retail partners are getting on the on the AMD50 celebration. Earlier this week, we told you about the Ryzen 7 2700X and Radeon VII Gold Editions, and now we've got an excellent deal on the mid-range Ryzen 5 2600. Newegg currently has the processor on sale for $164.99, which is a price matched by other retailers like Amazon. However, with the coupon code EMCTYWT23, you'll get an additional discount which brings the price down to just $149.99 with free shipping. In order to take advantage of the discount code, you’ll need to sign up for Newegg’s email newsletter. The Ryzen 5 2600 is a respectable gaming chip based on... Read more...
In case you missed it, NVIDIA launched its [widely leaked] GeForce GTX 1660 Ti this morning, and we've got a full review which you can check out right here. As most are well aware of at this point, the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is based on NVIDIA's Turing GPU architecture, albeit without Tensor or RT cores, meaning that you don't have dedicated hardware for real-time ray tracing. With that being said, the GeForce RTX 1660 Ti is being positioned as a replacement for the GeForce GTX 1060, but as our benchmarks bore out, it is actually more comparable to the GeForce GTX 1070. And with a price of less than $300, the card represents a pretty compelling bargain for those that game at 1440p and below.... Read more...
Gamers who have been holing out for prices on the Xbox One X to go down before they jump into 4K gaming might want to take advantage now. Newegg has the Xbox One X bundle that includes a single controller and a copy of the maligned Fallout 76 game for $349.99, which is a $150 discount off the normal $499 price. That makes this Newegg deal significantly better than the best price we saw during Black Friday at Walmart for $399. The only caveat is you have to be able to live with paying Bethesda some loot for the stinker of a game that is Fallout 76. Bethesda is still working on the game, but so far no significant improvements have been seen. Bethesda has promised better communication with fans... Read more...

Even though Newegg is one of the most popular destinations for enthusiasts looking to score the latest and greatest hardware for the gaming rigs, the retail giant is not immune to the nefarious actions of the hacker community. To that end, Newegg's website was hacked, and the parties responsible were able to inject 15 lines of credit card skimming code into the retailer's payments page. That code hid there, undetected, from August 14 through September 18 meaning if you made a purchase there between those dates, you need to be concerned. News of the attack comes from Yonathan Klijnsma, a threat researcher from RiskIQ. The injected code was able to steal credit card data from customers and sent... Read more...
When it comes to AMD's Ryzen Threadripper family of processors, the 1920X and 1920X tend to get the bulk of the attention. After all, the High-End Desktop (HEDT) processors pack in 12 and 16 cores respectively with bargain pricing compared to their Intel counterparts. However, there is one member of the Threadripper family that doesn't get a lot of attention, and that's the Ryzen Threadripper 1900X. If you're looking to score a deal on the entry-level offering in the Threadripper family, Newegg has posted a HOT deal on the Threadripper 1900X. While the processor usually has a street price of $429.99, Newegg is dropping that price by $50 when you apply the coupon code "NESOCIAL19X" -- without... Read more...

The side effects of the recent price gouging on GPUs from AMD and NVIDIA is now filtering down to sites that use affiliate links to generate additional revenue. One retailer in particular, Newegg, is cutting off the Video Card category for affiliate linking. Newegg attributes this change in policy to the fact that "Bitcoin has gone mainstream." "The limited nature of these cards have caused a shortage in which supply can never meet demand and thus many users are actively buying these cards as soon as they go in stock," writes Newegg. "So, this means effective in 7 days from now all VGA cards will be marked non-commissionable for the foreseeable future on all Business Units.” Under this... Read more...
Graphics card prices are insane right now, a direct result of the shortage created by cryptocurrency miners snatching up cards quicker than retailers than stock their shelves. This has led to huge markups on practically every mid-range and high-end GPU product, usually through third-party sellers. The solution? That is a point of debate, and interestingly enough, Newegg has begun bundling other hardware with graphics cards. This raises a question—is Newegg essentially masking the price gouging that is taking place, or trying to allocate a portion of inventory to gamers? That will surely be debated too. We have mixed feelings about this ourselves, based on the bundles we have seen so for.... Read more...

Most computer enthusiasts are at least familiar with the name Newegg as one of the places to go for all the computer hardware you might need when building up a new PC.

According to the suit, Newegg consipred with a South Korean hardware manufacturer called Moneual in the Ponzi scheme.

Facebook is home to nearly 1.6 billion monthly active users, so if you're a business that sells products online, why not tap into that resource? That's what Newegg is doing. The online vendor of computer parts and assorted other items reckons that many of its customers are already on Facebook, so for the sake of convenience, it's giving them the ability to chat with customer support using Messenger. This seems like a minor thing on the surface, but it's actually a pretty big deal for both companies. For Newegg, it's an expansion of its customer support and mobile shopping experience. Messenger is one of the most popular apps around, and it now joins Newegg's other customer support options that... Read more...
Despite the wealth of information that's come out of Microsoft these past few months on its upcoming Windows 10, it's remained tight-lipped with regards to two things most people want to know: what it will cost, and when it will be released? For that reason, I'm sure it's none-too-thrilled that etailer Newegg took it upon itself to give both bits of information to the world. At $109.99 for Home and $149.99 for Professional, these OEM (one PC) versions are $10 more than their Windows 8.1 predecessors. But, given the fact that Windows 10 is free for the first year to owners of legal copies of Windows 7 or 8, it's the release date that's going to strike most people as more interesting. That release... Read more...
