Adrenalin Software Edition 19.7.5 Performance Analysis for RX Vega 56/64
As a BabelTechReviews regular feature, this Adrenalin Software Edition 19.7.5 Performance Analysis will chart the performance of 40 PC games using the latest drivers that released late last month. We will compare these 19.7.5 drivers with 19.6.3 using the the Red Devil RX Vega 56 and the liquid-cooled RX Vega 64.
We benchmark at 1920×1080 and at 2560×1440 resolutions using the latest games, and we also recently added Anno 1800, F1 2019, and Total War: Vermintide II. In addition, Hitman 2 and TW: Warhammer II are run on DX11 and on DX12.

We recently upgraded our testing platform using a Core i7-8700K which turbos all 6 cores to 4.8GHz, an EVGA Z370 FTW motherboard, and 16GB of T-FORCE XTREEM DDR4 at 3866MHz. The games tested, settings, and hardware are identical except for the driver versions being compared.

ASUS Radeon RX 5700 XT Review
Overall, when compared directly to the NVIDIA RTX 2060 SUPER, the RX 5700 XT edges it out in almost every game. Once board partners start to roll out custom cards, I feel the RX 5700 lineup will look even better. For now, even though it does beat the competition at this price point, you need to consider if the blower cooler will bother you. That seems to be the biggest complaint I've seen in user reviews for the VEGA cards and this uses the same cooler, just with a new faceplate attached.

ASUS Radeon RX 5700 XT ROG STRIX Review
Meet the ASUS Radeon RX 5700 XT ROG STRIX that we review today. It has increased clocks, increased looks and well is just customized all the way. Fabricated at a 7nm node and capable of battling with NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2060 and 2070 we'll check out how well it holds against the reference card as well.

ASUS Radeon RX 5700 XT STRIX OC Review
The ASUS Radeon RX 5700 XT STRIX OC is a huge improvement over the AMD reference design. It comes with an excellent cooler that reduces temperatures and noise levels at the same time, matching NVIDIA's offerings. Idle-fan-stop is included, too, and the factory overclock helps gain additional performance.

There's a huge amount to love about the Corsair K83, but there's also a whole host of crazy features bolted on to it that don't come close to reaching their potential.

Intel Tiger Lake Supports PCIe Gen 4 and Features Xe Graphics, Phantom Canyon NUC Detailed
Intel is working on its next generation gaming-grade NUC, codenamed "Phantom Canyon." When it comes out some time in 2020-21, it will feature Intel's 10 nm+ "Tiger Lake" SoC. Intel detailed this and more in a leaked presentation to industry partners. It describes the launch of of the company's "Ghost Canyon" NUC in Fall 2019 to succeed the current "Hades Canyon" gaming NUC. This box features a Core i9-9980HK processor and discrete graphics options. It will be succeeded in 2020-21 (late 2020 or sometime 2021), by the "Phantom Canyon" NUC that's in development.

The "Phantom Canyon" NUC is powered by a 28 W 10 nm+ "Tiger Lake-U" SoC that features PCI-Express gen 4. The package also implements Intel's "Gen 12" graphics processor that's derived from the Xe architecture it's currently working on, according to Chinese publication PTTWeb. The NUC will also feature discrete graphics options in the price-range of the current GTX 1660 Ti and RTX 2060 ($299 to $349).

Logic Pros: Organize your workflow with the Logic Plug-in Link system
If you’ve ever wondered how the Logic Plug-in Link system works, you’re in the right place.

Seagate 16TB IronWolf, IronWolf Pro, and Exos X16 HDD Review
Seagate's hard disk drive division has seen a winning streak for the last several years. Capacity ramped up faster than the competition since the 8TB models came to market. Around the same time, the company took a bold step in the feature category by synchronized platter rotation to 7,200 RPMs across the NAS-optimized product line (starting with the 6TB IronWolf). A strong roadmap featuring dual independent actuator arms and even lasers mounted to heads that heat the platters prior to writing data show Seagate doesn't plan to slow innovation.

Before we images of Austin Power's laser sharks dancing in our heads, we get to talk about the current product lines that just expanded capacities to 16TB. Seagate's three NAS-optimized series, IronWolf, IronWolf Pro, and Exos X now ship in the new capacity. Other than the label, the three series look identical and often times pricing is similar. Today we will look at what differentiates the three and then see each in action over in the native environment, over a network.
