While many components used to build a new system have and are coming down in price (except graphics), it's an excellent time to build that new gaming PC. Going prebuilt is the way forward for those who want to plug in and play without all of the hard work, and there are plenty of options on the market, from the entry-level to the high-end. One such example that looks to bridge the gap between both and aims down the middle is Lenovo, with their latest LOQ Tower 17IRB8 gaming system. Although
Moving into the warmer and more picturesque spring season, the weather isn't the only thing hotting up. The CPU market towards the end of 2022 and the beginning of 2023 has been topsy-turvy, to say the least, with many viable options available for users to build a new system. Depending on the task at hand,Intel and AMD have strong line-ups with multiple generations of its processors, with both the latest 13th Gen core series (Raptor Lake) and the Ryzen 7000 series (Zen 4/Rapael) leading the
In a world that has seen various security breaches at several top companies and supposedly secure companies through hackers and exploiters, the onus isn't only on software developers to keep users and businesses safe but also at the hardware level.In contrast, hardware vendors have different levels of platforms for users, workstations, servers,and whatnot; Intel'skey and integrated security platform for desktops is called vPro. Intel's vPro platform isn't a new feature for theird
As the chip industry develops more sophisticated processors with higher heat dissipation requirements, some firms have moved on to chiplet-based designs. This not-so-gradual shift has resulted in chip packaging technologies becoming increasingly important. Large and highly complex chips such as Nvidia's H100 and advanced multi-chip solutions like Intel's Data Center Max GPU (Ponte Vecchio) present new requirements for packaging materials. To that end, Dai Nippon Printing (DNP) is showcas
Crucial has started to tease the T700, the company's first mainstream PCIe 5.0 SSD. Not to be confused with the Terminator T-700, the T700's product page has already gone live but still lacks some of the M.2 2280 SSD's finer details. However, it does show some basic specifications that suggest that the T700 will deliver higher performance than rival first-generation PCIe 5.0 drives. Different as they may look, the first wave of SSDs all have something in common: they leverage Phison&

Softened demand for PCs and smartphones coupled with NAND memory bits oversupply has sent prices of 3D NAND memory into a dive in recent quarters. In Q4, global NAND flash revenue dropped staggering 45% year-over-year and 25% quarter-over quarter, according to recent data by TrendForce . And while that dive appears to be leveling off some TrendForces' analysts forecast that NAND prices declined more modestly in Q1 it's still bringing NAND to its lowest per-bit costs ever. All of which

After a 2021/2022 product cycle that was a bit more i nteresting than Qualcomm perhaps would have liked, 2023 has been a far more straightforward year for the prolific SoC and cellular modem vendor. After releasing the first of their Gen 2 family of parts earlier this year with the flagship-class Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, the company is preparing to iterate through the next step of its product stack with the Snapdragon 7+ Gen 2.
