This leaves some question marks
Things look good, but not that good
During the past years and especially during last year business has been going exceptionally well for TSMC. The Taiwanese contract manufacturer for semiconductor technology has seen quite a few consecutive quarters of double digit growth, with reasons being the strong smartphone market and the crypto mining boom.
A kick in the butt of a declining market
For a few years the South Korean electronics giant has already been working on a foldable smartphone and more than once an actual device was expected to launch. According to the Wall Street Journal Samsung is going to launch a foldable model for good by the beginning of next year and the price could be a whopping $1500 US.
AMD gains on performance
It was back in 2004 – a whopping 14 years ago – when I used to play, what we now call World of Warcraft Classic, like a maniac. Since then countless new expansions have been released of which I’ve only barely touched the first one. Nonetheless it appeared to be about time to Blizzard to give an overhaul to WoW’s underlying engine, which now supports DirectX 12.

Samsung has unveiled a new ultrawide format in the market with the upcoming C43J89. The monitor is based on a rather unusual 3840 x 1200 resolution and a massive 1800R curved display. With the C43J89, Samsung offers a 32:10 aspect ratio gaming monitor which acts like two 1920x1200 monitors side-by-side.
In collaboration with Seasonic
Better than NVIDIA
For many years, we have heard stories about AMD graphics drivers. AMD was criticised for its driver support with the Radeon Technologies Group software. With Adrenalin and Crimson drivers, AMD has fixed several bugs and now the company is offering a very good support. A few months ago, AMD commissioned QA Consultants to conduct an independent evaluation of stability of the latest graphics drivers from both AMD and NVIDIA.

Four budget-friendly motherboards
It comes with a quick SSD
On Thursday last week Apple announced their updated and upgraded 2018 MacBook Pro line. Meanwhile the guys over at Laptop Mag had a closer look at it comparing it to a few other 13-inch models. The $2499 US MacBook Pro 2018 ships with an 8th gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of RAM, Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655 and a 512GB SSD.
The most promising in six years
It feels like an eternity we’ve last read the lines that PC sales are facing an upwards trend. In fact, year over year growth in Q2 2018 has been the strongest since Q1 2012. IDC claims a 2.7 percent growth rate over the period mentioned, which might be proof that the PC market is not yielding to phones and tablets. Market research firm Gartner is actually a little more cautious mentioning year-over-year growth of 1.4 percent.
