Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 The TOP Mainstream GPU

In particular with the AMDs most popular cards, the cryptocurrency mining craze has inflated the prices of many GPU lines and we cannot recommend any AMD graphics card in this feature. The 6GB version of Nvidia’s GTX 1060 is basically unbeatable if you have got around $400 to spend, it has excellent performance and enough RAM to future-proof you for at least a couple of years. AMDs RX 570 is a solid alternative if you’ve got slightly less in your bedget.


Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070 The Premium GPU

This is the most cost-effective option that you will find if you are looking for a high frame rates or 4K gaming on a budget. The GeForce GTX 1070 will easily give you 1440p / Ultra gaming on a higher-resolution monitor at Medium detail settings. If you are buying one of the newer ultrawide displays but doesn’t want to splash out on the Ti, then this is the card that you will need. Faster than its predecessor, the GTX 1070 has an ample 8GB of memory and also proves to be an impressive over clocker as well.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti The Extreme GPU

If you are looking for a low-budget, top-level card, then you cannot really put a wrong foot with the 1080 Ti. There is nothing from the red team that can compete with AMD seemingly comfortable to focus on the midrange and entry level markets at present. A single 1080 Ti can net you a 60fps average in most games, so if you are gaming at 4K or gaming on a much wider monitor and money is no object for you, then this one’s an easy recommendation to make.

AMD Ryzen 7 1800X An Excellent Premium CPU

Nowadays, it is hard picking one Hymn chip that is definitely worth recommending over the rest, however, the top-end package that is the Ryzen 7-1800X ultimately gets the nod with its 8 physical cores and the ability to hand 16 threads. AMD still has what it takes to produce a competitive chip with its incredible number-crunching powerhouse. The basic teething problems concerning the memory capabilities had been sorted.

The TOP Mainstream CPU Intel Core i5-8400

In this year’s CPU awards, AMD may have swept every other category, however, Intel has still managed to hold on to the most vital mainstream slot – and admitting that at least, it was something we can probably still thank AMD for. Thanks to the addition of two more cores, the Core i5-8400 might be a bit of a monster and well reasonably-priced. It has 6-core/12-thread design making it great for both gaming and moderate multimedia-creation tasks – tech savvies will agree of its unbeatable value.

Ryzen Threadripper 1950X – The Extreme CPU AMD

Doing image or video or 3D designs? If you are a professional working in a field where data-crunching capabilities are paramount and then your choices for a heavily-threaded, high-end CPUs are fairly limited in recent years. Basically, it has been Intel or bust. Offering a pro-oriented platform that delivers far better hang-for-buck compared to Intel’s equivalent Core 17s, AMD’s Ryzen has changed that; and Threadripper expanded that trend even further. At eye-watering prices, Intel still offers faster chips than this making the Threadripper a far more sensible choice.


It leaves the traditional supercars in the dust.


Most of the us thought that electric cars were a nice and an eco-friendly idea, however, who would have thought they could ever be fast enough to outpace a high-performance sportscar. Say hello to the new Tesla Roadster, prepare to backtrack significantly to this all-electric supercar that is spoiling for a fight with those petrol-powered rides. Tesla is now looking to set a new benchmark for the world’s fastest car with Tesla’s Roadster. Agera RS holds the current record for the fastest car which throws down at 447.24 km/h. The Roadster’s top speed is said to be above 402.34 km/h, however, the exact figure has yet to be confirmed. There’s plenty else to get excited about here for the meantime, the first production car to break the two-second mark at 0-60 in 1.9 seconds and a whooping 998 km range. Those statistics relate to the basic Roadster. There will be an option to increase the car’s brawn and brain along with the price (naturally) nearer to the 2020 release date. Price starts at $200,000.


These cops will be implementing this alongside the rules that requires drone users to have it registered and taking ‘Safety Awareness’ Test.

e Government in UK is taking a firm stand regarding drone regulations. Earlier this year, the new rules were put in place that require drones weighing over 250 grams to be registered and the owners take a ‘safety awareness’ test that would prove that the owners/users understood the regulations. The British Police will have the power to not just ground the drones that they think are being used to commit an offense but also seize these drones once the UK Government finished drafting a new bill for that and once it passed the legislation committee. It will be called simply as the Drone Bill, and this bill might even ban the use of drones flying over feet near airports.

Intel Delivers a Big Increase in Performance from its 8th Gen Processors

For its mainstream platform, Intel has released a 6-core processor. And let us all be realistic, we need to thank AMD for releasing the Ryzen CPU to the market and bringing back the competition. AMD’s CPU s have had their share of struggles for much of the past decade just to keep up with Intel’s best processors because going up against a company like Intel is always considered a thankless job. Particularly outside of gaming, Ryzen is definitely a threat though Core i5/i7 is always faster.

The gargantuan of a company like Intel is not going down without a fight. From 2003.2006 AMD has laid claim to the CPU throne, and if you could remember last time, AMD had a clear lead in the CPU realm was in the Pentium 4 versus Athlon 64 days Intel has taken its time to correct their course, however, the result was devastating. Generally using less power Core 2 Duo came out in July 2006 which delivered significantly faster performance than anything AMD had to offer. In the tick-tock era for Intel, Core Duo has ushered the company when the new processor architectures started coming on a  yearly schedule; and by 2006 onward, Intel has reigned as the CPU champion.

You are not alone if you feel that for the past several CPU generations, Intel had been the one coasting. Three or four years ago, we would have had something like the AMD’s Bulldozer or Coffee Lake family of processors if they had been more competitive. And from the enthusiast sector and into the mainstream, Ryzen has effectively forced Intel to go 6-core down.

Intel Core i7 moves to 6C12T or 6-core / 12-threads, and this goes to Intel’s 8th Gen Core desktop processors. Then for the Intel Core i5, it has 6C6T, and Intel Core i3 becomes 4C4T. On an easier way of looking at things, the Intel Core i3’s parts are almost the same as the previous generations of the Intel Core i5’ parts without the Turbo Boost. Speaking of the next generation of Pentium and Celeron parts, Intel has yet to officially reveal their specifications. However, Koby Lake Pentiums has already moved into Core i3’s 2C4T territory, and will most likely to stay there for now.

On some of he performance tiers, the prices to creep up slightly, so the i7-8700K checks in at $359 compared to the outgoiong i7-7700K’s official price of $350, and for the i5-8600K it is $257 compared to the $243 on the i5-7600K and that goes without any sort of cooler included. Now, considering that clockspeeds are slightly higher in most cases and we’re getting 50% more cores, the small price premium is not a major concern. Priced to move at just $182, the Intel Core i5-8400 is potentially the most interesting of the current models, and Intel knows it. So, rather than the usual unlocked K-series part, Intel sent along that chip for the launch party. Later today, I will have a separate review of the i5-8400, however, you can see the performance in the charts that follow.

There is at least one fly in the ointment for all the good things about Coffee Lake, and that is the chipset/motherboard requirements. Coffee Lake uses the same LGA1151 socket as Skylake and Kaby Lake, however, it requires a new 300-series chipset (which is currently only Z370). Despite rumors that

Coffee Lakes would work in existing motherboads, it didn’t actually pan out. What’s more is that you cannot bring your existing Kaby Lake or Skylake chip along and put it in a Z370 board. They supposed that it was due to the modified power requirements on Coffee Lake.
