By | September 20th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

Apple is neglecting the MacBook in favor of the iPhone 11 – and that could cost it dearly

By | September 14th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

You might have noticed that Apple released a few new smartphones recently – including the iPhone 11 Pro, and while the Cupertino company gushed about its latest handsets, it became ever more apparent that it seems almost completely uninterested in its Macs and MacBooks.

I can sort of understand why. Smartphones are still thought of as exciting and modern, and they are a reliable way of getting people to fork out their hard-earned money every few years.

Laptops like the MacBook, however, are seen more as everyday workhorses that are there to do a job, but aren’t the status symbols they once were.… Read the full article

Are Intel Apollo Lake processors already dying?

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

Update: Intel has been in contact to say that the original Product Change Notification (PCN) it released had incorrect information, and it has since released a new PCN.

According to Intel, "There are no changes to the B-1 Stepping of the Intel Celeron N3350, J3355, J3455 Processors and Intel Pentium N4200 Processor as they meet all Intel quality goals for PC Usage and will continue to be available.

AMD – you were supposed to be the chosen one! Don’t turn to the dark side to beat Intel

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

Maybe it’s the fact that IFA 2019 has finally melted my brain, but I’ve been thinking a lot about the processor war between AMD and Intel, and how it apes a certain space-bound series of films set in a galaxy far, far away.

While it’s a bit too easy (and simplistic) to paint Intel as the big bad Empire, and AMD as the plucky Rebel Alliance that wants to overthrow Team Blue's tyranny, I don’t think AMD’s story – for the moment at least – resembles the original Star Wars trilogy.… Read the full article

AMD and Nvidia on the rise, while Intel struggles in latest Steam survey

By | September 6th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

The latest Steam Hardware and Software survey has been released, giving us a glimpse of the what kind of hardware PC gamers are using – and it seems AMD and Nvidia have a lot to be a happy about, though the picture is less rosy for Intel.

Earlier this year we reported how the Steam Hardware survey had shown Intel increasing its dominance in the processor market, while AMD struggled, but the most recent Steam Hardware survey for August 2019 shows AMD has reversed its fortunes, with the number of people using AMD processors growing – at Intel’s expense.… Read the full article

By | September 6th, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

At the IFA 2019 tech show in Berlin, Germany, Netgear announced the worldwide release of the Orbi Wi-Fi 6 mesh system, as well as a price – and it’s shockingly expensive.

I’m sick of Chrome eating all my RAM – it’s time for me to ditch it for FireFox… or even Edge

By | September 1st, 2019|Categories: TechRadar|

That’s it. I’ve had enough of Chrome. I, like the vast majority of internet users, have been using Google’s web browser for years now. Back when it launched almost exactly 11 years ago, Chrome promised a different, better way of browsing the web.

It convinced me to jump ship from Firefox, which I had found to be increasingly bloated and slow. Oh, what a difference a little over a decade makes! What was once a New Hope for browsing the web has now become the very thing it set out to defeat.… Read the full article
