Bungie's new smash-hit Destiny 2 is in Beta now, and we took a closer look at its graphics options and performance. We're happy to report that there is no FPS cap, and FOV can be adjusted, too. Joining our test group of 14 cards are the AMD Radeon RX Vega 56 and Vega 64, with slightly surprising performance numbers.

The Raijintek Thetis is a larger version of the Metis, allowing you to use a full-size ATX board, PSU, a fairly long GPU, and even a 240 mm radiator. While all that may not sound interesting on paper, considering the compact size of the Thetis, we are eager to take a look.

Team Group's Delta RGB is one of the best memory kits we ever tested. They are the perfect match for your ASUS ROG motherboard with ASUS Aura Sync. Offering full top-to-bottom RGB LED goodness when installed into a case, these sticks provide an ultra-wide viewing angle for their Force Flow RGB LEDs, making them perhaps the best RGB option for those non-standard-layout case designs.

Fractal Design looks to take another stab at the expandable all-in-one liquid cooler market with the Celsius S36. Offering a 360 mm radiator and all-new features, like a built-in fan hub, it certainly has a lot to offer.

The Corsair Void Pro RGB Wireless succeeds a well-known and well-liked wireless gaming headset. It comes with a reworked microphone, retuned audio drivers, and several changes in design and ergonomics, refining and improving pretty much every aspect of its predecessor, which results in a terrific device well worth its $100 price tag.

Etymotic's ER4 in-ears set the benchmark when they were first launched over 25 years ago. Recently, Etymotic decided to bring out two new versions of their ER4 design - namely, the XR (Extended Response) and SR (Studio Reference). These new versions feature all-metal housings and a brand new cable design. On the acoustic side of things, you now get the choice between elevated bass and something that should be close to neutral in terms of the Studio Reference.

The Tesoro Tuned In Ear Pro headset aims to deliver gaming quality sound, which - as the name suggests - is a soundscape tuned to fit such a scenario best. With a few interesting features, like the aluminum housing or the magnets to hold them together, it will be interesting to "hear" (pun intended) whether they manage to sound better than the competition in the price segment.

By releasing the MasterPulse MH320, their least-expensive gaming headset to date, Cooler Master tries to grab the attention of gamers on a very tight budget. Even though it costs a mere $40, it offers a dual-headband design, a foldable bi-directional boom microphone, and a few other interesting features.

Radeon RX Vega 56 is the second AMD Vega card launched today. It comes at an affordable $399 price point, with a slightly reduced shader count that actually improves things greatly. For example, power efficiency now trades blows with some Pascal cards, which means less heat and noise, too.

Our AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 review confirms that the company achieved major performance improvements over their last-generation Polaris and Fiji cards: Vega is faster than the GTX 1080. We tested six different performance configurations of the Vega 64, with surprising results.

The Bitfenix Nova TG is aiming to be an interesting choice for the entry level. While the original Nova, launched nearly two years ago, managed to sport a US$30 price tag, this also meant sacrificing functionality and layout when it came to the interior. The Nova TG does not only come with a tempered glass side panel, but upgraded internals and a splash of color. Is it worth the higher price tag of US$50?

The DM PAD L and XL are the first mouse pads from Dream Machines. Competing with such well-known large mouse pads as the Steelseries Qck+ and Zowie G-SR, they do so while being very competitively priced for large mouse mats - only costing $14 / $22.

The Meshify C utilizes the same frame as the Define C, but targets a more gamer- and enthusiast-based crowd. It replaces understated looks with an edgy design and adds full glass panels - all while offering nearly the same feature set as its Define C counterpart.

Hellblade Senua's Sacrifice is one of the best-looking titles released in recent times. Its facial animations look stunning, and the game's visual fidelity is excellent, too, but comes at a performance cost. We tested this highly demanding game on a wide selection of graphics cards at full HD, 1440p, and 4K.

MSI has gone and stripped "GAMING" and "X-POWER" from its motherboard, and what's left is what we've got to look at today. MSI's X299 SLI PLUS is exactly what its name says it is and not much more... or is it more than anyone could have hoped for?

AUDIOCASE is a Danish startup offering a portable speaker with more oomph than usual. Their speaker design bundles Bluetooth 4.2 with a serious driver setup consisting of two woofers, two tweeter, and two passive radiators.

The GTX 1080 Mini from Zotac is a highly compact, ITX-sized graphics card powerhouse that delivers excellent framerates while still fitting into most small-form-factor cases. Zotac even included an overclock out of the box, and the thermal solution ensures there is no throttling due to high temperatures.

The Aukey KM-G4 RGB mechanical keyboard is an improvement in almost every way over the previous iteration, the KM-G3, which itself was of fantastic value for the money. Featuring software driver control, onboard storage, hardware control over full 16.8M RGB backlighting, smooth Outemu Brown tactile switches, and an aluminum frame, the KM-G4 is a keyboard to strongly consider in the sub-$75 market.
