Today we're going to take a quick look at how current-gen GPUs perform when put to the task of Ethereum mining. It seems just about everyone wants in on the action these days, and we're often asked what the best GPUs to mine with are. We didn't have an exact answer, so we decided to find out.
We walked away impressed by the speed of Intel's new Skylake-X chips, however thermals were a severe letdown. The Core i9-7900X is too hot to handle even when paired with an AIO liquid cooler. But we think the 10-core/20-thread beast deserves a more robust cooling solution to match it so we can properly overclock it. Read on.
Futuremark is well known for their 3DMark and PCMark benchmarking applications. As you know, we often rely on them for our reviews and today the latest edition of PCMark 10 is making its debut.

TSer Cycloid Torus is wondering how much he would benefit from buying an SSD. He doesn't need a speedy boot-up, but his current drive does load Fallout 4 levels painfully slow, raising the suspicion that it might be time to upgrade. Can he expect a performance boost anywhere else? Maybe it's best to go hybrid?
Enter the Radeon RX 560, AMD's last ditch effort to reclaim the entry-level market segment for this generation. Compared to its predecessor, the RX 560 packs 14% more cores that are slightly faster clocked for good measure. But the GTX 1050 enjoyed of a comfortable 18% lead against AMD's last-gen GPU, so it'll be interesting to see what this means for the RX 560.
Mechanical keyboards have long been all the rage for gamers, but they're still a long way off becoming ubiquitous due to their premium price point. The Logitech G413 is a full-sized mechanical gaming-oriented keyboard, but at $90 it undercuts most of its competition while packing in largely the same feature set.
The Core i9-7900X is a 10-core, 20-thread processor that can overclock to 4.6 GHz with ease according to initial reviews, easily becoming the most powerful desktop processor you could buy, but the problem is at $1,000 the Core i9 loses some of its appeal. Of course, AMD’s ThreadRipper processors are on the horizon. If a 16-core ThreadRipper performs as strong as many expect it to and arrives at a lower price point than the Core i9, Intel may have to reconsider on the pricing front. In the meantime, a handful of reviews for the Core i7 7740X and Core i7 7820X are also out, the latter offering close enough numbers to the i9-7900X at a fraction of the price.
