New open-frame case

Thermaltake has released a new case for its Core series. Like the previous model, the Core P90 is a open-frame tower chassis and this one might be the coolest yet.

The new GeForce Game Ready 388.43 WHQL drivers offer optimisations for the biggest game released this week, Doom VFR, the virtual-reality iteration of the 2016 "Doom" reboot. Apart from game support some bugs have been addressed as well.



More support for Doom VFR

It seems like we are spending more time updating drivers than playing new games lately. During the past month we have received several new AMD drivers and it's more or less the same with NVIDIA.

Philips has added another monitor with a 32-inch panel and 2560 x 1440 resolution to its lineup. The display comes with a high-contrast IPS panel and it's supposed to be HDR compatible.

ASUS already has a wide portfolio when it comes to graphics cards but that didn't stop them from launching yet another model. The new card goes by the name "Cerberus" and it delivers solid performance at a competitive price point.






The first PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD from Corsair

A few days ago we have received a small package from Corsair and inside there was a Corsair Neutron NX500 PCIe SSD.

This time the SSD comes in the shape of an add-in-card with a PCIe 3.0 x4 interface.

Samsung has begun preparing itself for the incoming wave of 10nm chips. The company has announced that its Foundries have started mass production of system-on-chip (SoC) products built using Samsung's second generation 10nm FinFET process.

3000MB/s of throughput performance

NVMe capable SSDs are growing increasingly popular these days, offering much higher transfer speeds than your usual SATA drive.

Available in multiple color options

If these days you want to buy a fast SSD you're going to choose an M.2 drive. Those drives are not just fast, unfortunately some of them also struggle with overheating issues. Already a few months ago, Alphacool introduced their M.2 heatsink which is supposed to help keeping the temperatures of your M.2 SSD low. Meanwhile also EK Water Blocks has come up with a heatsink for M.2 SSD, which goes by the name EK-M.2 NVMe Heatsink.



Compatible with Core i9 7980XE processor

Powercolor Red Devil Vega 64 and 56 have been pictured and both new cards feature a custom design with a beefy cooler.

Unlike the previous rumors about the missing custom RX Vega, it appears that the manufacturers are actually going to release cards based on a custom design.


With black shroud

Last week there were several rumors regarding the upcoming Gigabyte RX Vega graphics cards. Meanwhile Gigabyte has published more details on the RX Vega Gaming OC, a new model featuring a dual-fan cooler with black and orange color scheme.
