Today's review is all about the Ryzen 7 4800U, AMD's top-of-the-line APU for lightweight laptops, also known as ultrabooks. This is the best Renoir die AMD has to offer from an efficiency standpoint, aiming to bring the great performance to 15W and 25W power envelopes.
For 25 years, the USB port has been a faithful old friend, connecting and powering our everyday gadgets and peripherals. But how exactly does it that happen? Welcome to our explainer on the inner workings of USB, and a look at how it's managed to survive for so long when others have come and gone.
What does a cattle ranch have in common with computers? Admittedly not much, but that didn't stop a couple of college dropouts from capitalizing on the concept to create a lucrative business that would reshape how consumers perceive and purchase personal computers.
Today's comparison uses brand new fresh data for the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, GTX 1080 Ti and GTX 980 Ti. We're currently in the process of updating all our GPU data in anticipation of Nvidia's soon to be released GeForce 30 series. So we thought, why not compare five years of flagship GeForce GPUs while we're at it?
With technology advancing so rapidly around us, sometimes misconceptions can work their way into our common understanding. In this article, we'll take a step back and go over some of the most common things people get wrong when talking about computer hardware.
It was a magical time, home computers sales were just booming and if you were lucky enough, your PC would come equipped with a modem for dial-up Internet access. You would hear the scrambling sound of your phone line connecting you to the world. Launching Netscape and staring at the throbber animation while a single web page loaded.
If it's been a while since you've bought portable flash memory, you might be surprised by the broad availability and affordability of high-speed, high-capacity microSD and SD cards. With this guide, we'll break down what all the different codes and ratings mean, and offer the best choices for a range of categories.
As a culmination to our testing of Ryzen Mobile 4000-H, today we're discussing the best AMD gaming laptops released so far. It's clear that mobile Ryzen is not as widely available as we wished, but various new models have become available and reception has been great.
Stark, minimalist graphics. Time warping, freeze frame action. Glide past bullets, dance between enemies. The smash hit of 2016 is back, bigger and bolder. Welcome to Superhot: Mind Control Delete.
Today we're benchmarking a cargo plane load of graphics cards in the new Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020. Visually the game is breathtaking and we'd say that we're looking at truly next generation stuff here. We've tested 28 graphics cards at 1080p, 1440p and 4K using Ultra and Medium quality presets.
Nvidia will introduce faster next-gen Ampere GPUs next month. That's exciting, but we've got a tough choice to make. The new graphics cards will support PCIe 4.0, but our GPU test system that was just upgraded to a Core i9-10900K, doesn't. Should we go Ryzen 9 instead?
Monitors have millions of components, but usually don't get talked about with the same kind of fervent passion as CPUs and graphics cards, but they're just as important. The insides of monitors must be something special... and there's only one way to find out.
This is part two of our investigation into Ryzen Mobile 4000 versus Intel's 10th-gen Core processors in the same laptop design. Before we had covered productivity performance and today we're rounding that off with a look at gaming.
You've seen our tests of Intel 10th-gen Core laptops as well as from AMD Ryzen 4000 models. Comparing them has been tricky however. Today's test is an exciting one for that reason. XMG has provided us both Ryzen 4000 and Intel laptops... using the same design and chassis!
The LG 34GN850 is the company's latest 34" 3440 x 1440 ultrawide display and the successor to the best performing ultrawide we tested a few years back. The 34GN850 iterates on that winning formula with notable improvements, including their latest 1ms Nano IPS tech.
3Dfx Voodoo graphics are widely credited with jump-starting 3D gaming and revolutionizing computer graphics nearly overnight. The 3D landscape was vastly different in the late 90s and it was estimated that 3Dfx accounted for over 80% of the 3D accelerator market during the heyday of Voodoo's reign.
Timing for buying a new laptop right now is as good as it possibly gets. Intel's 10th-gen chips have found their way into most machines and even AMD's Ryzen 4000 CPU is making a solid appearance, we only wish it was more widely available. From $700 to $7,000 and covering multiple use cases, here are our favorite laptops on the market.
One of the best ways to protect your privacy is to encrypt important information on your computer. Whether you need to send personal information to someone, or simply want to make sure that no one who gets access to your computer can see stuff you would rather keep private, encryption is the way to go.
It's time we revisited the good old Core i7-8700K, an Intel CPU we're rather fond of after it remained at the top of the game for quite some time. From day one we called it 'The King of Gaming' and although it was technically superseded by the 9900K and then the 10900K, it's still a very capable gaming processor.
