AMD enjoys processor sales share surge in Japan
Nearly 70 per cent of PC-DIY CPU sales (Amazon Japan, BIC Camera etc) are of AMD parts. Japanese PC enthusiasts and gamers who choose to build their own PCs are lapping up AMD processors. PC Watch Japan reports that it has seen aggregated data via BCN, from 24 resellers such as Amazon Japan, BIC Camera, Edion and various bricks and mortar stores, that suggests AMD now has 68.6 per cent of the solus CPU market. In terms of pre-built PCs, AMD's percentage share is much less; BCN reports that the current market share for AMD in pre-built laptops and desktops is just 14.7 per cent.

AMD Ryzen 5 3600X (6C12T) CPU Review
How does AMD's Ryzen 5 3600X fare in the mid-range market segment? Priced squarely to compete with Intel’s Core i5-9600K at the ever-attractive £240 price point, AMD Ryzen 5 3600X continues the Ryzen 5 x600 tradition. That tradition is to offer six cores with Simultaneous Multi-Threading (SMT) doubling the thread count to a dozen. This time, however, those six cores that boost up to 4.4GHz, are based on AMD’s brand-new Zen 2 architecture, and they’re built using TSMC’s leading 7nm FinFET process.

AMD Ryzen 7 3800X Review
The Ryzen 7 3800X is based upon an identical framework to the Ryzen 7 3700X, sporting an 8-core, 16-thread layout and 32MB of cache, only with the TDP dialled right up to 105W, a huge 40W increase on the 3700X. With that comes a hefty base clock increase from 3.6GHz to 3.9GHz and a Boost clock increase of 100MHz to 4.5GHz when conditions are perfect.

Caldigit Connect10G Thunderbolt 3 Adapter Review
Quite surprisingly, CalDigit is a bit late to the party when it comes to Thunderbolt 3 enabled NBASE-T network adapters. With Sonnet, Promise, Qnap, OWC, and others already having solutions on the market it will really come down to aesthetics, pricing, and warranty as many of these solutions use the same controller internally. As for the CalDigit solution, they have gone with a unique design supporting increased cooling capabilities with fin stacks surrounding the entire adapter. Each end is capped off; one housing the RJ45 connector the other, the Thunderbolt 3 USB-C connection.

Corsair Glaive RGB Pro Gaming Mouse Review
Back in 2017 we took a look at Corsair’s original Glaive RGB gaming mouse and we liked it so much we have it a 10 out of 10 rating. Recently Corsair released the follow-up to the Glaive RGB, which is the Glaive RGB Pro. Corsair has upgraded this mouse by adding in the PixArt PMW3391 18,000 DPI optical sensor and they actually made the mouse lighter at 115g. Like the previous Glaive you still get the nice contoured shape, three interchangeable thumb grips, OMROM switches, and of course RGB lighting. Let’s see if the Glaive RGB Pro is the perfect mouse for our gaming needs!

CORSAIR HS35 Stereo Gaming Headset Review
Given the fact that we are dealing with a much lighter construction and thanks to the memory foam fabric padded cups, the HS35 offers more comfort than the HS50 during longer gaming sessions, the only concern being that it is not as durable because of the plastic build. In terms of sound quality, the headset comes with the same custom-tuned 50mm drivers found with the higher-priced modes from the same series which are able to provide punchy bass but also good mids and highs.

Intel's Xeon Cascade Lake vs. NVIDIA Turing: An Analysis in AI
It seems like the new motto for Silicon Valley for the last few years has been “Data is the new oil,” and for good reason. The number of companies employing machine learning-based AI technologies has exploded, and even a few years after all of this has kicked off in earnest, those numbers continue to grow. This form of AI is no longer just an academic thesis or curious research project, but instead machine learning has become an important part of the enterprise market, and the impact on enterprise hardware – both purchasing and development – would be difficult to overstate. This is the era of AI.

Today we’re taking a look at what’s perhaps the heart of Intel’s hardware in the AI space, Intel’s second-generation Xeon Scalable processors, better known as "Cascade Lake". Introduced a bit earlier this year, these new processors are still based on the same core Skylake architecture as the first-generation products, but incorporate a number of instructions and other modifications to speed up AI performance.

MSI MEG X570 ACE Review
At the top of the mainstream stack, the MEG X570 ACE is competing in a tough bracket. With 2.5 Gb/s LAN, WiFi 6, and a VRM that is both sophisticated and overbuilt, the X570 ACE has a lot going for it. So does the competition, however, which is why MSI armed the ACE with a secret weapon: a heat pipe connection between the chipset and VRM heatsinks.
