ASUS ROG Mothership – The Ultimate Laptop
ASUS ROG Mothership We love the flagship ASUS Zepherus laptops, we even own one ourselves. However, after today, it feels like a box of hot trash compared to the Mothership. This may be the greatest laptop ever created. However, when it could cost north of £5000, its definitely not a simple play thing.

Corsair M65 RGB Elite gaming mouse Review
We've taken a look at both Corsair's new Ironclaw RGB and its Harpoon RGB Wireless, and now it's time for a throwback to the first ever review I published at TR. All the way back in 2014, when I was only fourteen years old, I put together a video review of Corsair's Raptor M45, Vengeance M65, and M95. The age of the video and my age at the time I made it definitely show. My voice and the M65 have both developed since the time of that review, and the mouse is still a contender in the gaming mouse market. It seems fitting to give the updated M65 RGB Elite a proper written review almost five years after that first one.

The external hard drive we are taking a look at today does just that with its rugged design and real-time AES-XTS 256-bit hardware encryption. This is completely software-free data protection as there is a PIN pad on the top of the drive to input your PIN. Without a PIN you cannot get into the drive!

MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z Review
GeForce RTX 2080 Ti turned up to 11. Nvidia's new-and-improved GeForce Founders Edition has put AIB partners in a quandary. Creating a card that's as sleek as the FE is easier said than done, and justifying a premium for a custom cooler is proving to be a tough nut to crack. What's the answer? Well, on top-end SKUs, Nvidia's partners can take the no-holds-barred approach with premium models that throw caution to the wind. Enter the MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Lightning Z.

Pikuniku Review
OCC has a new review launched on the game Pikuniku. A puzzle-exploration game with a colorful style where players uncover a deep-state conspiracy… sounds like it could be an interesting adventure. Developed by Sectordub and published by Devolver Digital, Pikuniku is a colorful game where you meet some interesting characters who you try to help. It offers both a single-player campaign and local co-op levels to play. As I do these reviews alone, I have only done the single-player campaign.

Supermicro SuperO C9Z390-CG-IW Motherboard Review
How well does Supermicro's "pint-sized Powerhouse" stand up to scrutiny? The mini-ITX form factor continues to get more powerful as competition between AMD and Intel has driven up processor core counts over the past few years. With Intel’s newest Core i9 9900K it is now possible to pack 8 cores and 16 threads into a diminutive mini-ITX motherboard. More cores mean more power consumption so concerns about reliable power delivery and quality construction are paramount, concerns Supermicro hopes to allay with the SuperO C9Z390-CG-IW.
