What Dell’s State of Gaming survey says about PC gamers

If your stereotype of a PC gamer is a slovenly, socially stunted teen huddled in front of a monitor 13 hours a day—think again. The State of Gaming survey, commissioned by PC maker Dell, says gamers are—wait for it—pretty much just regular people. The data released on Thursday is based on the online survey responses of 5,763 PC gamers hailing from 11 countries (Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Japan, New Zealand, United Kingdom, United States) and spanning six…

Intel earnings call reveals strong revenue despite delays in 10nm chips

Intel’s first-quarter earnings call on Thursday revealed a new name for its roadmap: Whiskey Lake, which will debut as a consequence of a delay in 10nm volume manufacturing until 2019. Intel did say, though, that it’s shipping low volumes of its 10nm Cannon Lake processor now.  Intel reported outstanding first-quarter profits of $4.5 billion, a 50 percent boost over the same quarter a year ago, as well as record revenues of $16.1 billion for the first quarter of 2018. “Coming off…

Intel 8th-gen motherboards explained: Z370 vs. H370 vs. B360 vs. H310

Selecting the best Intel 300-series motherboard to fit your needs was straightforward when the initial wave of 8th-gen Core desktop processors launched in October 2017, because only the enthusiast-class Z370 chipset released alongside the new chips. That was enough to help the flagship Core i7-8700K CPU counter AMD’s Ryzen threat at the high end, but left PC users looking for more affordable options in a pickle. Buying a $100 Core i3 chip doesn’t make much sense when you’re forced to…

AMD ‘boot kits’ loan chips to help update motherboards for 2nd-gen Ryzen CPUs

If you can’t get your shiny new 2nd-gen Ryzen processor running on your AM4 motherboard, don’t panic: AMD officials have confirmed that they will indeed ship you a “boot kit” with an older dual-core chip to help you make it work.

Samsung’s glorious CHG70 FreeSync 2 display shows the wonder (and wonkiness) of PC HDR

Sure, luscious high-dynamic-range visuals look impressive during demos, but does HDR really matter when you’re gaming? That was the primary question I wanted to answer when AMD sent me the Samsung CHG70. It’s one of the first gaming-centric monitors to carry VESA’s DisplayHDR 600 certification and AMD’s bleeding-edge FreeSync 2 technology. It’s also one of the best PC displays I’ve ever used. Seven monitors currently crowd my office, offering various features and tech specs. None feels half as immersive as…
