Alongside with Armor model

Earlier today we published a couple of leaks about the upcoming MSI GTX 1660Ti Ventus XS. According to Videocardz, MSI is going to release two more models called MSI GeForce GTX 1660Ti Gaming Z and Armor. While the Gaming Z features a new PCB, the Armor should share the same PCB of the Ventus XS.


The launch is just around the corner

The amount of leaks that NVIDIA and its AIB partners are increasing by the minute. This morning we saw that even more GTX 1660Ti variants are on the way to retailers. This time we have more details about an upcoming custom model from MSI.



Some gamers use them

According to the latest Steam hardware survey, NVIDIA is still holding the crown, when it comes to graphics card market share. No less than 74 percent of the users on Steam own a system where the graphics department is powered by a GeForce graphics card.



Now with anti leak system

Over the last years, we have reviewed quite a few CPU coolers from Deepcool including its Captain all-in-one series. A couple of weeks ago we have received the new Captain 240PRO which now features anti leak system. To be more precise the technology is called "anti leak airbag system" which is a bit too eye-catching for our taste.



Starting at $1'585

Corsair has quietly added four new 192GB hexa-channel DDR4 memory kits to its Vengeance LPX product line. The speeds range from DDR4-2666 to DDR4-4000 and pricing starts at $1'585 up to $3'000.



Simple and sleek design

EK Water Blocks released a new passive heatsink for the M.2 version of the Intel Optane 905P NVMe SSD. The company said it's co-developed (presumably with Intel) to ensure top performance without thermal throttling.



More to come

According to the most recent rumors, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660Ti launches on 22nd February, previously we expected to see them officially appear on 15th February. The launch of the GeForce GTX 1660Ti is getting real close due to the multiple leaks that we can find lately.



Higher clocks than i9-9980XE

It isn't a secret that Intel is having some headaches with latest processors. It looks like the company can't find a good balance between high core count and high clock frequency. Intel has released a new flagship model that however sports less core and thread than the previous model.



Huge comeback for the company?

For a long time, Supermicro was quite popular for both consumers and OEMs. In late 1990s and early 2000s, their motherboards were almost inside every gaming PCs. However during the last years, the company has shifted its main core business to server hardware and they are currently the third largest supplier of servers in the world.



Only 85 Euro

If you are looking for a mid-tower case which is compatible with high-end graphics cards, ATX motherboard as well as water cooling setup, Corsair's Carbide 275Q enclosure might be just what you've been looking for. Furthermore the side panels sport sound damping panels.



Within 72 hours

Apex Legends has been released last week on PS4, Xbox One and PC. The game is exclusive on EA's Origin platform and it’s popularity is already absolutely extraordinary. The free-to-play battle royale game has been downloaded over 10 million times in less than three days.



Need a 1440p high refresh rate display?

AOC has expanded its monitor lineup with another model, featuring a 31.5-inch TN panel with 2560 x 1440 resolution. The grey-to-grey response time is 1ms and the refresh rate 144Hz. Apart from that this monitor sports built-in AMD Freesync support.



Including DLSS compatibility

Already during conference last week NVIDIA has shown extensive demos of Battlefield V and Shadow of the Tomb Raider with ray-tracing enabled. NVIDIA has also been talking about their DLSS feature sharing further insight on it. Usually it takes a while until new technologies appear in games, but it looks like NVIDIA is pushing really hard on these two features to accelerate the process.


Last month, Samsung launched an enhanced version of its popular 970 EVO NVMe PCIe SSD sporting new V-NAND memory and optimized firmware. Since a new model is out, it usually means that the older models are going to be sold off with a discount. On Amazon.com, .de and .it (and probably in others as well), the SSD is on sale for a limited time.



A variant of the H100i Platinum

Over the past years we have seen plenty of PC components that have received a white paint job. There were graphics cards, motherboards and even chassis. It looks like Corsair is even adding CPU coolers to that list. Compared to the Hydro H100i Platinum, the only difference is the color.



Runs really hot

Custom system builder Puget Systems has received a sample of the still-not-announced and limited edition Intel Core i9-9990XE processor. According to their tests, the CPU runs hotter than the other X-series chips. As previously announced, the CPU will only be available to OEMs and it'll be auctioned online once every quarter.


Availability is appears to be bad

The guys over at Cowcotland have shared the price of the upcoming graphics card from AMD. According to them the AMD Radeon VII is to set you back 739 Euro if you do wish to own one of these cards. Judging by the specs the price looks ok, but it seems that availability is going to be the issue if you’re interested in this particular pixel accelerator.


A juicy contender

According to a leak from a Russian retailer there is more information on an upcoming GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card. The pixel accelerator is supposed to be based on the 12nm TU116 silicon having 1536 Turing CUDA cores at its disposal to perform. There are no RT cores built-in to this chip, which is why this is going to be a GTX and not a RTX graphics card.


Popular and well-priced choice

Artic has released the third generation of their monitor arms, which also includes the new W1C wall mount. The monitor arms are pretty popular as they’re available at a reasonable price point and the quality is also on a decent level.


60fps hard to hit with mid-range GPUs

Our friends over at PCgamer have put together a pretty nice article about the new battle royale game which has just been released by Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment. A few hours after the release they’ve checked the performance of the game with several graphics cards and different settings.
