Intel’s New Memory Is No Miracle Solution For Your Current Slow PC

So Intel has announced a new kind of memory that promised speed up your computer, particularly those who are still on traditionally HDD. When I first read the headline, I was elated and then I learn to take the excitement a notch down (or maybe even more). Why? This “magical new memory”, the Intel Optane Memory, won’t be a magic potion for your slow, aging computer. For it to deliver as promised, it has to be paired with a 7th-gen Intel core processor and to be honest, if you have that, I hardly doubt your computer will be any slower than mine aging 2008 iMac.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Staked Claim As World’s Fastest Gaming GPU

Game graphics requirement and graphics card are like two knife-wielding person stabbing at each other. You never know which demands the bump in technology first; the game or the graphics card. That’s one mystery which I attribute to as the magic of supply and demand. Anyways, barely a year on since the introduction of NVIDIA’s flagship GeForce GTX “with shocking sticker,” the Santa Clara graphics card maker has unveiled its newest flagship, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, at the 2017 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.

Meet Logitech BRIO, The World’s First HDR and UHD Webcam

I can’t remember the last time I had to turn on an external webcam. These day, most all-in-one PCs already had a built-in webcam which begs the question: is there still a place of external webcams? Perhaps, no, but that’s until Logitech BRIO comes along. How so? Because it records and streams in freaking 4K. And if that’s not enough, it even has support for Logitech RighLight 3 with HDR and that, btw, is also the industry first for a webcam. But how long before in-built all-in-one PC catches up, is anyone’s guess. Then again, if you are a pro YouTuber, or making multi-dollar deals, you wouldn’t want to live stream or video conference with in-built webcam. You probably would want to be pro with your gear too, and this is where BRIO comes in. Continue reading Meet Logitech BRIO, The World’s First HDR and UHD Webcam
