MSI Radeon RX 5700 Mech OC Pictured

Another MSI interpretation of AMD's RX 5700 graphics card has been taken out of the bag. This time, on the form of the Mech OC series, which carries a dual-slot, dual-fan configuration not dissimilar to MSI's Ventus graphics cards, but with a darker color palette. The design is appealing, even if fully in plastic save for the backplate, which is full black and has some white strips to add a little more interest to the otherwise blank surface. The MSI Radeon RX 5700 Mech OC graphics card ships with 3x DisplayPort 1.4 and 1x HDMI 2.0 ports, and will join other MSI custom design mainstays in the company's portfolio for AMD-based hardware.

Intel Starts Shipping 10 nm Ice Lake CPUs to OEMs

During its second quarter earnings call, Intel announced that it has started shipping of 10th generation "Core" CPUs to OEMs. Making use of 10 nm lithography, the 10th generation of "Core" CPUs, codenamed Ice Lake, were qualified by OEMs earlier in 2019 in order to be integrated into future products. Ice Lake is on track for holiday season 2019, meaning that we can expect products on-shelves by the end of this year. That is exciting news as the 10th generation of Core CPUs is bringing some exciting micro-architectural improvements along with the long awaited and delayed Intel's 10nm manufacturing process node.

The new CPUs are supposed to get around 18% IPC improvement on average when looking at direct comparison to previous generation of Intel CPUs, while being clocked at same frequency. This time, even regular mobile/desktop parts will get AVX512 support, alongside VNNI and Cryptography ISA extensions that are supposed to bring additional security and performance for the ever increasing number of tasks, especially new ones like Neural Network processing. Core configurations will be ranging from dual core i3 to quad core i7, where we will see total of 11 models available.

AMD Navi Radeon Display Engine and Multimedia Engine Detailed

Two of the often overlooked components of a new graphics architecture are the I/O and multimedia capabilities. With its Radeon RX 5700-series "Navi 10" graphics processor, AMD gave the two their first major update in over two years, with the new Radeon Display Engine, and Radeon Multimedia Engine. The Display Engine is a hardware component that handles the graphics card's physical display I/O. The Radeon Multimedia Engine is a set of fixed-function hardware that provides CODEC-specific acceleration to offload your CPU.

The Navi Radeon Display Engine features an updated DisplayPort 1.4 HDR implementation that's capable of handling 8K displays at 60 Hz with a single cable. It can also handle 4K UHD at 240 Hz with a single cable. These also include HDR and 10-bit color. It achieves this by implementing DSC 1.2a (Display Stream Compression). The display controller also supports 30 bpp internal color-depth. The HDMI implementation remains HDMI 2.0. The multi-plane overlay protocol (MPO) implementation now supports a low-power mode. This should, in theory, reduce the GPU's power draw when idling or playing back video.

AOC Readying New AGON 353-series - 4K HDR 1000 Gaming @ 200 Hz

AOC is readying the next generation of their enthusiast-gaming AGON line. The 353 series supersedes the 352 series launched in February last year, and keeps the 35" diagonal of its previous iteration. The specs are up there with the best available for what a VA panel can offer: 4K resolution, 1000 nits peak brightness in HDR mode, 1 ms (MTRT response time, or a rated 4 ms GtG) and a 200 Hz maximum refresh rate with support for AMD's FreeSync 2 or NIDIA's G-Sync HDR. There's also 100% coverage of the DCI-P3 color space, if color accuracy is a must.

The AGON 353-series will be available in two models, for either AMD FreeSync 2 or NVIDIA G-SyncHDR certification. AG353UCG featuring NVIDIA's G-Sync HDR as well as another one supporting AMD's FreeSync 2 HDR. The G-Sync HDR version, however, will be carrying a 512-zone full array local dimming for increased contrast. Connectors include HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 1.4, and a four port USB 3.1 (5 Gbps) HUB. The NVIDIA G-Sync version is expected to launch around June this year; no word on the AMD equivalent. No word on pricing either, but don't expect these (particularly the NVIDIA one, with its full array local dimming) to come cheap.

Colorful Outs Flagship iGame RTX 2080 Ti Neptune Graphics Card

Colorful rolled out its flagship liquid-cooled graphics card, the iGame GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Neptune. The card comes with a factory-fitted all-in-one closed-loop liquid cooling solution. Unlike most other cards of this type, Colorful deployed a larger 240 mm x 120 mm radiator with two included 120 mm RGB LED fans. The business-end of the cooler includes a large pump-block on the card that makes direct contact with the RTX 2080 Ti GPU, and a base-plate which pulls some of the heat from the memory chips. The VRM area has its own aluminium channel-type heatsink that's ventilated by a lateral-blower.

The PCB of this card features silver-plated contacts for improved conductivity. The card pulls power from a combination of three 8-pin PCIe power connectors, conditioning it using a massive 19-phase VRM. It also features dual-BIOS, with the default BIOS running the card at reference clock-speeds of 1545 MHz GPU Boost, while the second "OC BIOS" spools up GPU Boost to 1740 MHz and increases power limit. Display outputs include three DisplayPort 1.4, one HDMI 2.0, and a USB-C VirtualLink port. The company didn't reveal pricing.

Philips Unveils the DisplayHDR 600-rated 326M6VJRMB Ultra HD Monitor

Philips today unveiled the 326M6VJRMB, a 31.5-inch 4K Ultra HD monitor certified by VESA to meet DisplayHDR 600 standards. Backed by an AMVA panel, the monitor puts out 10bpc or 1.07 billion colors, 178°/178° viewing-angles, 4 ms response time, and 3,000:1 static contrast ratio with 600 cd/m² maximum brightness. Two features let you care for your eyes - a blue-light reduction mode that makes the display less irritable to your eyes, and a flicker-free brightness adjustment, which uses a non-PWM method to reduce brightness of the LED backlighting. The monitor features RGB LED-based ambient lighting. You get plenty of inputs, including a DisplayPort 1.4, three HDMI 2.0, an analog audio line-in from your PC, and a USB 3.0 input to drive the 4-port USB 3.0 hub. In-built 5W stereo speakers make for the rest of it.

Philips Announces 499P9H 32:9 SuperWide Display Monitor - 49" VA, 5120 x 1440, HDR 400

Philips today announced another entry into their ultrawide monitors, with the SuperWide 499P9H piece of kit. This monitor packs a 32:9 aspect ratio, 49", 5120 x 1440 (dual Quad HD) VA panel for accurate colors and unmatchable horizontal screen real-estate. Its 1800r curvature ensures that more of the panel stays in your field of view (and at the same overall distance) without any color gradation or change - which would be hard on a VA panel anyway. It features VESA's HDR 400 certification, the lowest attributable to any monitor, a pop-up webcam for the privacy-minded amongst us with support for Windows Hello.

A USB 3.1 type-C docking station, an RJ45 port por secure communication between devices, and ergonomic features such as a height-adjustable stand with swivel and tilt functions, VESA mount, Flicker-Free technology and LowBlue Mode also make their appearances to round out the package. Connections are taken care by 1x DisplayPort 1.4 and 2x HDMI 2.0 b. The Philips 499P9H will be available starting from £989.00.

CES 2019: Alienware Saves the PC Monitor World With a 55" OLED Gaming Monitor

So, that news title may be slightly too flashy for the actual product, but bear with me here: OLED is such an improvement over current mainstream display technologies that its transition to the PC monitor space is one of the most sought-after unicorns in this market. Alienware, via a partnership with LG (that's almost obvious), will be making this particular unicorn come to reality. The Alienware 55 OLED gaming monitor will feature 4K resolution @ 120 Hz, Variable Refresh Rate support via HDMI 2.1 (FreeSync? G-Sync? - all's still up in the air), DisplayPort 1.4, and 98 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 RGB spectrum with a candy of HDR support thrown in the mix.
