ASUS, Gigabyte and others

According to the latest report from DigiTimes several Taiwanese vendors are facing declining sales. The list of issues includes supply shortage of Intel’s 14nm CPUs, low demand from cryptocurrency miners and, the U.S.-China trade dispute. These factors will continue to affect the suppliers through the first half of 2019.



Compatible with JEDEC standards

SK hynix announced that it has developed the industry's first DDR5 DRAM chips which meet JEDEC standards. The new 16 Gigabits DDR5 chip is built on the same 10nm process technology that has been developed for 8Gb DDR4 chips.



On Silicon Lottery

Silicon Lottery is one of the websites selling binned and highly-binned processors. Meanwhile the site has added Intel’s latest Core 9000 series CPUs to the portfolio. Currently the company is enjoying strong sales, since their initial batch has been sold out completely.


Based on ATX form factor

The ASUS ROG B450-E Strix Gaming is another AMD AM4 motherboard that should help filling gaps in ASUS' AM4 lineup. Compared to the ROG B350-F Strix Gaming, which we’ve had for review a few months ago, the new B450-E Strix Gaming sports an improved layout.


Devil May Cry 5, The Division 2 and Resident Evil 2

In the case of their new RX 590 graphics card AMD has come up with a juice game bundle. The new cards based on the RX 590 will come with no less than three AAA titles in the box, which are Devil May Cry 5, The Division 2 and Resident Evil 2 Remake.


Finally available

During the past few weeks, there have been plenty of rumors surrounding the upcoming AMD RX 590 graphics card. The latest addition to the polaris family has now been launched and compared to the RX 580 series the GPU is now made using a 12nm node process.


First G2 Esports branded monitor

AOC has expanded its monitor lineup with another model, featuring a 24.5-inch TN panel with 1920 x 1080 resolution. The grey-to-grey response time is 1ms and the refresh rate 144Hz. Apart from that this monitor sports built-in AMD Freesync support.


This time without bugs

As you might know or you might have experienced it yourself actually, Microsoft’s Windows 10 1809 update came with quite a few rather annoying bugs. This is why the folks over in Redmond decided to stop the OS software deployment for a while and focused on getting rid of any annoying bugs.


With 64GB and 128GB capacity

G.Skill has released a couple of new high-performance and high capacity DDR4 memory kits. We've seen the company push DDR4 speeds to its limits in the past and now the high capacities kits with 64GB and 128GB are receiving the same treatment.


World's smallest RTX?

NVIDIA has provided MSI with the opportunity of making a bunch of awesome custom GeForce RTX graphics cards. After a few models have been launch, which were all based on long and wide PCBs, the company has now unveiled its first ITX version of the RTX 2070 graphics card.



Three AAA games included in the bundle

While not officially announced yet, leaks on AMD's Radeon RX 590 GPUs have been hitting the web for weeks. PowerColor is one of the first graphics card manufacturer to officially launch its custom-made Radeon RX 590 graphics card. The PowerColor Red Devil Radeon RX 590 8GB GDDR5 is based on AMD's Polaris 30 graphics processor that is produced with the 12nm FinFET node.

Gigabyte has revealed the detailed specifications of its C246-WU4 motherboard. This model is compatible with Xeon E-2100 series and 8th/9th generation Core processors, thus addressing the workstation market segment.

Not all RTX 2070 are equal

We have come across a lot of speculation regarding this graphics card and now we are finally getting first looks at custom models. Apart from that Newegg has already listed the $500 CAD (almost $380 USD) and it's even available.



For 2280 form factor SSDs

If these days you want to buy a fast SSD you're going to choose a M.2 drive. Those drives are not just fast, unfortunately some of them also struggle with overheating issues. The logical consequence is that the different vendors started producing heatsinks to tackle this issue. ZADAK 511 has done exactly that and came up with a heatsink for M.2 SSDs, which goes by the name MOAB.


Compatible with Core i9 7980XE processor

Gigabyte today introduces the X299 Aorus Master, an upcoming high-end motherboard.
