    Logitech G Unveils New PC Gaming Speaker and Mechanical Keyboard With LightSync

    $200 for Speakers inferior to the $99 Logitech Z623, but priced $100 higher thanks to RGB. Thanks Logitech, it's silly pricing like this that makes people hate RGB.

    ADATA Releases the XPG STORM RGB M.2 2280 Active-Cooled Heatsink

    Well, this will be a problem for boards that have the M.2 slot right under the Graphics card. Otherwise, I wish this was available before I finished my system. I would have bought this.

    7th Gen Core "Kaby Lake" Won't Work on 300-series Chipset Motherboards

    Way to give AMD my business. Here I was thinking...CoffeeLake's not gonna work on my Z170 board, well, I can just get a Z370, stick with my 6700k and upgrade to an 8700k in the future. But, no, it has to be arbitrarily incompatible. At least AMD plans to support AM4 till at least 2020. So, I...

    Xbox One X Hardware Specs Give Gaming Desktops a Run for their Money

    So instead of having an RX-490/RX-590 to compete with the GTX1070, they use it for the XOX. Come on, everyone knew that AMD had a higher performance Full Polaris in the pipeline, but instead AMD lied to everyone about the RX-480 being the "full-Polaris" and saved them for the XOX.

    ASRock Uses External Clock Generators to Circumvent Intel non-K BClk OC Limits

    Yeah, you can OC all AMD chips, but when a Max overclocked FX-9590 can barely match an i3-6100 at stock, then overclocking on AMD is at best a pyrrhic victory.

    AMD Now Almost Worth A Quarter of What it Paid for ATI

    They already do, the problem is the prices are insane. Imagine if in 2008/2009 AMD priced the Radeon 4870 at the same $450 price as the GTX260, they'd be out of business already. Instead they launched the 4870 at $300, got a TON of good press, saw brisk sales, and embarrassed nvidia bad enough...

    Grand Theft Auto V Performance Analysis

    I'd like to see CPU benchmarks. It's be nice to see if a game ported from a console with 8-Cores will take advantage of the 8-Cores of the FX-8350 and the 8-Threads of the i7 4790k.
