Runs really hot
Custom system builder Puget Systems has received a sample of the still-not-announced and limited edition Intel Core i9-9990XE processor. According to their tests, the CPU runs hotter than the other X-series chips. As previously announced, the CPU will only be available to OEMs and it'll be auctioned online once every quarter.
Availability is appears to be bad
The guys over at Cowcotland have shared the price of the upcoming graphics card from AMD. According to them the AMD Radeon VII is to set you back 739 Euro if you do wish to own one of these cards. Judging by the specs the price looks ok, but it seems that availability is going to be the issue if you’re interested in this particular pixel accelerator.
A juicy contender
According to a leak from a Russian retailer there is more information on an upcoming GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card. The pixel accelerator is supposed to be based on the 12nm TU116 silicon having 1536 Turing CUDA cores at its disposal to perform. There are no RT cores built-in to this chip, which is why this is going to be a GTX and not a RTX graphics card.

Slightly faster than Threadripper 2990WX
The first set of benchmarks on Intel's Xeon W-3175X CPU has surfaced. The processor has been tested by our friends over at Pcworld alongside with the AMD Threadripper 2990WX. Both CPUs are really powerful but there is a pretty big price difference between the two and it will be interesting to find out whether it’s justified or not.
