Intel launches powerful Core-X series processors at drastically lower prices

Two years after Intel launched its ultra-high-end “Skylake-X” X-series gaming processors at stratospheric prices (brother, can you spare $1,999?), the company has announced the next-gen “Cascade-X” chips at more affordable prices—if by “affordable,” you mean the price of an Apple iPhone 11 Pro.  Indeed, compared to its $1,999 predecessor, Intel’s new 18-core Core i9-10980XE Extreme Edition chip is downright cheap at $979. If that’s still too rich for you, there’s hope: Intel has priced its 10-core Core i9-10900X chip at…

Why you can stop paying for antivirus software

You don’t need to pay for antivirus software anymore. Microsoft’s Windows Defender, a free service that’s built right into Windows 10, is now as good as the paid antivirus/antimalware solutions that have been collecting your money for years. There, we said it.  Many PC users became accustomed to paying for antivirus software for two reasons: Good, free alternatives were scarce, and Microsoft offered minimal protection via Windows, ceding the category to Norton, Kaspersky and a host of other third-party vendors.…

Pre-binned Ryzen 3000 CPU listings reveal the limits of AMD overclocking potential

AMD designed its Ryzen 3000 processors to milk out every possible ounce of performance, leaving very little room for enthusiasts to push the pedal even closer to the metal. That’s the key takeaway from Case King and Silicon Lottery listings for pre-binned chips with guaranteed all-core overclocking headroom. Both sites validate their chips in-house and then sell them at a premium for their guaranteed minimum overclocking potential, so the faster the chip, the more you pay. The Case King offerings…

It’s time: We need a unified RGB lighting standard

They told me RGB lighting would serve a purpose. All of them did—Logitech, Razer, Corsair. When I started reviewing RGB-equipped peripherals, five or six years ago now, it was more than mere fashion statement. Sure, your new keyboard would look flashy, but it would do so much more they said. Your keyboard backlighting might change color to match your character choice in Overwatch, for instance. Or perhaps flash blue-and-red when the police were after you in Grand Theft Auto V. Maybe when you sent out a…

Seriously: The difference between a hard drive and an SSD can’t be overstated.  Today, we’ve got two stunning SSD deals for…
