Fake GPUs are quite common thanks to crypto miners

We can all agree on the fact that crypto miners made a huge mess on the GPU market during the past year or so. One of the many issues that generated from the mining frenzy, is the one about second-hand fake GPUs being sold online.


Most powerful graphics card from MSI

With the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z, MSI should add a flagship model featuring a custom PCB and a custom cooler. This model is usually created for performance and extreme cooling enthusiasts, being equipped with a triple-fan cooler.


Two 1440p displays

Dell has unveiled an ultra-wide and extra large display that is equivalent to two 1440p monitors standing side-by-side. The U4919DW is wider than any other ultrawide monitor thanks to its 49-inch panel. The monitor is based on a rather unusual 5120 x 1440 resolution and a 3800R curvature.


Polaris is back with RX 590?

During the last week we have heard several rumors about an upcoming AMD Polaris graphics card. According to various sources, we might expect to see the RX 600 series somewhere during next month. Meanwhile we have some more information about a new Radeon in the pipeline, the RX 590.


On Kickstarter

Cooler Master has unveiled an interesting new numeric keypad accessory on Kickstarter. The device sports 24 mechanical keys (available with Cherry MX Red or Gateron Red switches), two precision scroll wheels up top and a full RGB backlit. Furthermore it comes with a removable wrist rest.


This time by Chinese video streaming portal

Another set of benchmarks on Intel's Coffee Lake CPUs has surfaced. This time it looks like the six-core Intel Core i5-9600K, which is supposed to make it to market later this week, has been put through its paces running Cinebench R15 and CPU-Z.


Compatible with Core X CPUs

The ASUS Prime X299 Deluxe II is another Intel X299 motherboard that should help filling gaps in the ASUS X299 lineup. Since Intel is refreshing its Core X-series with higher performance potential and solder TIM, ASUS is getting ready for those chips. This motherboard drops support for Intel's Kaby Lake-X CPUs and focuses more on Skylake-X generation.


With up to 1TB capacity

A few days ago we have received a small package from Corsair and inside there was a Corsair Force MP300 NVMe SSD. Meanwhile we’ve taken the pictures and during the next days we are going to review the kit as well.


6% faster than GTX 1080

NVIDIA's RTX 2070 has been spotted in the Futuremark database, showing impressive performance numbers. According to the first scores, the RTX 2070 is able to beat the GTX 1080. These days editors and reviewers should have received their first RTX 2070 samples including final drivers.



A bit late to the party

MSI has released the MEG X299 Creation motherboard, which is going to be the flagship model for the Intel X299 based processors. According to MSI, the MEG X299 Creation (as the name suggests) is specifically designed for content creators due to the large number of ports and connectors.



With dual x16 PCIe bridge chip

The Z390 WS Pro from ASUS is a high-end motherboard that comes with a few interesting features. Compared to the previous model, which goes by the name Z270 WS Pro, we see a similar color scheme but a reworked layout and more connectors. This motherboard is designed for workstation or content creation system, in other words the feature set will be a bit different from what we're seeing on Maximus and Strix series boards.


The 9th generation

It has been a while since Intel released their last X-series processor and the company has decided to jump from the current 7th generation to the upcoming 9th generation. The new processors will deliver several improvements and changes that will suit both for enthusiast and overclocker users.


Between Core i9-9900K and Ryzen 7

During the last days, Intel has published several benchmarks claiming that the upcoming Core i9-9900K was up to 50 percent faster than AMD Ryzen 7 2700X in games. However these Intel-commissioned benchmarks have been called out for their misleading comparisons since the testing conditions were a bit unfair.


Four models

Super Micro has prepared its latest motherboards compatible with Intel Core 9000 series of processors, introducing the SuperO Z390 range. With the SuperO Z390, the company adds server-grade quality built for gamers.


Compatible with upcoming ASUS ROG Maximus motherboards

G.Skill has shared images and specifications on their upcoming TridentZ RGB DC DDR4 memory. With their DC DDR4 memory, G.Skill adds an oversized DDR4 memory module with literally double the capacity. According to the latest information, this memory kit is supposed to be compatible with ASUS upcoming ROG Maximus motherboards and it's not clear if other motherboard manufacturers will add DC compatibility as well.


With triple fan cooler

With the launch of the GeForce RTX series we have seen plenty of custom graphics cards. While at the moment there are mostly custom RTX 2080 and 2080Ti graphics cards with dark color schemes, Gigabyte has unveiled a new model with white painting. The upcoming GeForce RTX 2080 Gaming OC White has been pictured in detail.


Soon available

EVGA today introduces the Z390 Dark, a motherboard that belongs to the high-end series and it's recommended for enthusiast and overclocker users. At the moment this is the second Z390 motherboard from EVGA and we expect to see also the tiny mini-ITX on later stage.


The N7 Z390

NZXT has announced its second motherboard based on Intel chipset. The upcoming model is called N7 Z390 and it features a clean layout, several metal covers and plenty of features. According to latest rumors, this motherboard might be manufactured from ECS like the previous N7 Z370.


Two high power supplies available

A few months ago, Phanteks has unveiled a new series of power supplies made in collaboration with Seasonic. With the Revolt Pro series, the company releases two models with 850W and 1000W ratings. Both units should be available during next month.


SuperNOVA GM series

EVGA has announced that their new SuperNOVA GM SFX power supplies are finally available. The entire line of units has been 80Plus Gold certified and consists of three models with 450W, 550W and 650W ratings.
