ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB3 Review
AMD's 3000-series Ryzen processors are well established now, providing excellent performance at a relatively affordable price point, and with that launch came the supporting X570 chipset. While most users will opt for a fairly standard ATX form factor, there's always a need for high-performance Micro ATX and even ITX. That's where the ASRock X570 Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB3 comes in.

ASRock X570 Steel Legend Review
ASRock's Steel Legend range has usually sat somewhere between the budget and enthusiast sectors, aiming to strike that, often difficult to find, balance between too few features and prohibitive pricing. The pricing aspect, they appear to have covered reasonably well, so we can focus on the features within the review.

Corsair K57 RGB Wireless Review
Keyboard snobs didn’t become snobs for no good reason. There are a lot of crappy keyboards out there. Many feel that a keyboard that doesn’t have mechanical switches in it are not worthy of their attention, and in the past this has been a good argument. With advancements in rubber dome-switches and the like, do they deserve another chance?

Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless Gaming Headset Review
Coming off the launch of the Virtuoso, Corsair now has a legit "audiophile" quality headset in their portfolio. In our first look I decided to take on the SE model (review) and today we look at the more budget friendly option. Upon first inspection you won't find much between the standard and SE models that sets them apart and even looking at the specifications you will find the standard model has the same 50mm drivers with 32ohm impedance and 109dB sensitivity as the SE. Frequency Response sits at 20Hz to 40KHz with 20 hour battery life and 60ft wireless range. This is accompanied by the same multiplatform compatibility that allows 3.5mm, USB and Slipstream Wireless on the same headset.

Inno3D GeForce RTX 2080 Super iChiLL Black Review
The champion of being cool and quiet. Nvidia add-in board partner Inno3D goes about its business by having three distinct ranges for its enthusiast graphics cards. Catering for the user who wants the cheapest possible entry into a particular GPU is the standard Inno3D line. Upping the budget, usually accompanied by a custom PCB and overclock for the core, is the Gaming OC, but the real attention is reserved for the iChiLL series.

We have previously taken a look at the liquid-cooled iChiLL presented on the top-of-the-range RTX 2080 Ti GPU. Occupying a twin-slot form factor and connected to a thick 240mm radiator, Inno3D reckons the same cooling apparatus makes sense further down the stack. Without further ado, here's the RTX 2080 Super iChiLL Black Edition (C208SB-08D6X-11800004) sporting the reference-beating technology.

Intels Gargantuan Next-gen Enterprise CPU Socket is LGA4677
Intel has finalized design of its next-generation Xeon Scalable enterprise CPU socket. Called LGA4677, the socket succeeds LGA3647, and is bound for a 2021 market release. Intel will have transitioned to its advanced 7 nm EUV silicon fabrication node on the CPU front, and has adopted an "enterprise-first" strategy for the node. LGA4677 will be designed to handle the extremely high bandwidth of PCI-Express Gen 5, which doubles bandwidth over PCIe gen 4.0, and adds several enterprise-specific features Intel is rolling out in advance as part of its CXL interconnect.

Is Intel Really Cancelling 10nm Desktop Processors?
This morning saw some interesting news (based on either rumors or actual inside information) about none other than Intel and their upcoming desktop CPU plans, and it’s pretty wild. It began with a report published by hardwareLUXX (German language), which we found via TechPowerUp, in which it is claimed that “insider circles” have reported the end to 10nm desktop plans from Intel.

Pride Run Review
Do you know what is absolutely lamentable? The fact that games like Pride Run is a game that the major sites literally always say they support. They put up rainbow images 'to show solidarity', they'll do streams or even sell rainbow branded merchandise (naturally omitting the fact that it's advertising for them). What does this have to do with Pride Run, the game I previewed earlier this year at Gamescom? I'll get to that.

The reason I'm going on this little mini-rant is that you'll find so much lip-service about the supporting of equality for all, but when it actually comes to it, people and sites back away. It's certainly nothing to do with views, they're happy to cover news of a game that is larger than other smaller, less controversial titles? In an interview with Gamesindustry.biz last month, Ivan Venturi had this to say in regards to the matter:

Tronsmart Element T6 Plus Bluetooth Speaker Review
First I would like to give a huge thanks to Tronsmart for sending me this Element T6 Plus speaker to review! I’ve been testing this Bluetooth speaker for about a week and it has planted itself on my desk and it may never leave. I have been using it as my desktop speakers (kinda in place of a soundbar). I have to be completely honest this thing sounds good, really good! I wasn’t expecting that much bass out of the box! This thing really has a bass profile that hits the lows. The speaker is comparable in size to a 20oz tumbler. The speaker has a decent weight which I find very important for outdoors when the wind is blowing. Well lets not delay this review any longer any and check this speaker out! Find out my opinion in the conclusion!
