The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is reportedly in the works

By | January 17th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

We’ve heard plenty of rumors that Nvidia plans to announce a new GTX 11-series of graphics cards, but this is the first time we’re hearing about GeForce GTX 1660 Ti.

Apparently, such an oddly-named card is indeed in the works and it’ll feature a TU116 GPU with 1,536 CUDA cores and 6GB of GDDR6, according to three sources that spoke with Videocardz. This GTX 1660 Ti is also said not include any RTX cores – there’s no word on whether Tensor Cores have been cut as well – as a costcutting measure for users who don’t want to spend the premium on raytraced graphics.… Read the full article

By | January 16th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Intel and AMD are at each other's throats again, bringing the spirit of competition to the processor market once more. This is possible because AMD has been dominating the market with AMD Ryzen 2nd Generation, and will probably continue to do so with the 3rd Gen. Intel has responded with 9th Generation Coffee Lake Refresh chips like the Core i9-9900K. So, the eternal battle of Intel vs AMD is on full blast, so there’s never been a better time to pick up one of the best processors.… Read the full article

Best computer 2019: the best PCs we’ve tested

By | January 16th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

The best PCs might not be in vogue anymore, but that doesn’t mean they’ve stopped getting more advanced with quad-core processors and high-end graphics cards that can render realistic ray-traced lighting. If you’re looking to stay ahead of the curve, you’re going to want one of the best PCs – even if all you do is browse the internet. It’s all too easy for your PC to get slowed down by loading too many ads or ever increasingly high-res video.… Read the full article

By | January 16th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

The RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 are finally here and the Nvidia Turing revolution has begun in earnest. So, do you splurge on an expensive flagship graphics card? Or, do you go back in time a bit, pick up a Pascal card and save a couple bucks? No matter what you do, you’ll be able to use the best graphics cards to play the best PC games from Hitman 2 to Battlefield V.

Remember that the best graphics cards can vary wildly depending on the kind of build you’re pursuing, so it can be hard to find the best graphics card for your needs – it’s not always the most expensive one.… Read the full article

Microsoft is preparing Windows 10 for foldable devices

By | January 15th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

We’ve seen plenty of rumors of Microsoft making a foldable Surface product, but this is the first time we’re hearing that the company is reprogramming Windows 10 to support them.

A new build of Windows 10 (numbered 18313.1004) coded with references to foldable devices has appeared, according to Buildfeed. Within the build, users can find this specific string: 'rs_shell_devices_foldables.190111-1800.'

It seems likely that this new Windows 10 build has been designed to support Microsoft’s long-rumored Andromeda devices, which we’ve heard will include dual-screens and foldable devices. 

Even without Microsoft’s help, we’ve already seen a range of dual-screen Windows 10 devices including two generations of Lenovo’s Yoga Book, the Asus Project Precog and Intel’s prototype Tiger Rapids. 

Although Microsoft seems to be nowhere near ready to produce a dual-screen Surface, the market is already ripe for foldable hardware, and it’s about time for Windows 10 to start supporting them.… Read the full article

Hybrid processors at CES 2019 are the future of computing

By | January 11th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

While Intel and AMD were outdoing each other at CES 2019 by announcing their respective 10-nanometer (nm) and 7nm processors, both companies also introduced hybrid processors that may change the future of computing forever.

On one side, there’s Intel’s LakeField processors, with architecture that is more like an ARM CPU than a traditional computer chip. Instead of just having a block of 10nm CPU cores, the LakeField processor will feature one central 10nm Sunny Cove core paired with four Treemont Atom cores.… Read the full article

Best monitors of CES 2019: the biggest and sharpest computer screens in Vegas

By | January 11th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

While CES 2019 was a flurry of excitement with 7nm and 10nm silicon, new gaming laptops and more for a computer nerd to get excited about, what interested us most was all the new computer monitors we feasted our eyes on. From gargantuan 65-inch displays to RGB lit spectacles, we’ve never seen more monitor introduced at CES and there was also a fair share of new comers to the scene as well.

Without further ado, here’s a look at the best monitors we saw at CES 2019.… Read the full article

AMD 7nm Ryzen 3rd Generation processors will come mid-2019

By | January 9th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

AMD has announced its first 7nm processors will be Ryzen 3rd Generation and they are a doozy.

At its CES 2019 keynote, AMD debuted an unnamed octa-core, 16-thread part based on the company’s new 7nm Zen 2 architecture. The new CPU seems to be made specifically to go head-to-head with Intel’s flagship Core i9-9900K.

On stage, AMD benchmarked its secretive processor with Cinebench and it achieved a score of 2023 – by our own benchmarks the Intel Core i9-9900K and AMD Ryzen 7 2700X scored 1,873 and 1,798 points, respectively.… Read the full article

Intel’s latest drive combines Optane memory with a boatload of SSD storage

By | January 8th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Intel Optane storage was arguably too ahead of its time, with 3D XPoint memory that was incredibly fast but far too limited in storage capacity. Now, at CES 2019, Intel may have solved this bugbear with its latest Optane Memory H10 module.

This seemingly normal M.2 SSD drive pictured combines a tiny amount of Intel Optane memory with a large dollop of QLC 3D NAND storage.

There are currently three models of Intel’s Optane Memory H10: 16GB (Optane) + 256GB (QLC); 32GB (Optane) +512GB (QLC); and 32GB (Optane) + 1TB (QLC).… Read the full article
