A look at Firefox's upcoming Picture-in-Picture mode
Mozilla revealed that it was working on a Picture-in-Picture mode for the Firefox web browser back in February. Designed to play videos in a small overlay on the screen, Picture-in-Picture mode allows users of the browser to navigate between tabs and sites without interfering with the playing video using the detached video player.

The original plan was to introduce the mode in Firefox 68 but development has been delayed. Current plans aim for a release in the next stable Windows version of the Firefox web browser, Firefox 71. Firefox 71 will be released on December 3, 2019 if the schedule does not change. Linux and Mac versions of Firefox may see a release in Firefox 72 which will be released on January 7, 2020.

Apple macOS 10.15 vs. Windows 10 vs. Ubuntu 19.10 Performance Benchmarks
In addition to this month bringing the release of the Ubuntu 19.10 "Eoan Ermine", Apple also shipped macOS 10.15 "Catalina" as the sixteenth major release of their macOS operating system.

Corsair HS60 Pro Surround Headset Review
Today we're taking a look at Corsair's latest headset, the HS60 Pro Surround. There's an included USB DAC for 7.1 surround sound audio as well as 50mm diameter neodymium drivers. These things alone, coupled with a low price point, seems to point to an aggressive entry into the budget market. The market for budget headphones really seems to be heating up lately. Good thing for us. Let's see how the Corsair HS60 Pro Surround fares.

Corsair ONE i164 Compact Gaming PC Review
How much performance can be had out of a super-small PC? If we base our opinions on Corsair's ONE i164, the answer is a simple "a lot". Coming in at 15-inches tall, this PC bundles not just Intel's eight-core i9-9900K inside, but also NVIDIA's top-end GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. We recently battered the i164 with an obscene amount of testing, so let's explore our findings.

Creative Sound Blaster X3 Review
Transform your mediocre PC sound output into something truly special.

evnbetter RGB Lys Review
evnbetter is a whole new product on the market. It's about getting light in the gamer room, and inside the computer. RGB light products have been seen in many variations over time, but I can promise that this product is something for itself.

I have received 3 products from evnbetter. # 1.02 is their starter kit with an external controller and LED strips. xcd 1.03 is a standard LED strip as we know it from many other manufacturers, and xcd 3.03 is something brand new I have never seen before.

Intel Core i9-9990XE Review
Within a few weeks, Intel is set to launch its most daring consumer desktop processor yet: the Core i9-9900KS, which offers eight cores all running at 5.0 GHz. There’s going to be a lot of buzz about this processor, but what people don’t know is that Intel already has an all 5.0 GHz processor, and it actually has 14 cores: the Core i9-9990XE. This ultra-rare thing isn’t sold to consumers – Intel only sells it to select partners, and even then it is only sold via an auction, once per quarter, with no warranty from Intel. How much would you pay for one? Well we got one to test.

After years of delays, Intel is finally shipping its 10 nm processors in high volume, and the company is preparing to fire up another fab to produce an even larger volume of 10nm products. Along with producing more of the companys existing Ice Lake-U/Y products, Intel is also planning for server CPUs and GPUs as well, with Ice Lake-SP CPU as well as the DG1 GPU already up and running in Intel’s labs. Meanwhile, even farther out, Intel is eyeing 2021 for the rollout of its EUV-based 7nm process.

During its earnings call on Thursday, Intel said that so far 18 premium systems based on its 10th Generation Core (Ice Lake) processors have been formally introduced and 12 more are expected in 2019. Right now, the company produces all of its 10 nm CPUs in Hillsboro, Oregon and Kiryat Gat, Israel. Starting next quarter, the company expects 10 nm chips to also ship from its Chandler, Arizona, fab, which will increase supply of Ice Lake processors and will get Intel prepared for a broader use of the manufacturing process that had caused company a lot of troubles.

LIFX Candle Bulb Review
LIFX earlier this year teased the Candle Color, a candelabra bulb that uses Polychrome Technology, which is a fancy way of saying it can display more than one color at once. Now the Candle Color is available for purchase.

LIFX has used Polychrome Technology in the Tile, Beam, and Z Strip light strip, but this is the first time the color blending feature has been available in a light bulb.

MSI GeForce RTX 2070 Super Gaming X Graphics Card Review
NVIDIA really shocked everyone when they essentially refreshed their RTX line of graphics card this summer with "Super" variants. Competition from AMD in the GPU space was one large factor for this, but at the end of the day the people who benefit the most from this competition are us the consumers. The RTX 2070 Super is actually based on the same TU104 silicon as the RTX 2080 so you are going to get more performance at the same price. Today we are taking a look at MSI's Gaming X version of the 2070 Super which has a slight factory overclock and MSI's Twin Frozr 7 thermal design. Is this the RTX 2070 Super you need? Read on as we find out!

NVIDIA SHIELD TV 2019 Review
The NVIDIA SHIELD TV is widely regarded as the best media streaming device on the market. In addition to offering high-performance, access to a massive repository of 4K streaming services and apps, and leading-edge features that some competitors have only just recently caught up with, the SHIELD TV gives users access to GeForce NOW and game streaming capabilities from a GeForce-enabled PC. There is a growing library of native AAA Android games too, along with a myriad of casual games as well. And that's not to mention the huge community of enthusiasts that use the SHIELD TV to emulate a multitude of consoles and retro arcade machines from yesteryear.

Whether using it right out of the box or side-loading it with emulators and ROM files, NVIDIA SHIELD TV is miles ahead of a simple Roku stick, and today the company is refreshing the line-up toady with a pair of new SHIELD devices...

Surface Laptop 3 13.5 Review
USB Type-C, Intel 10th Gen and minor changes add up to a one-of-a-kind laptop experience with some kick

The Surface Laptop 3 15-inch featuring AMD has garnered a lot of press – some good, a lot not so good – but Microsoft is also offering smaller Surface Laptop 3 13.5-inch. Like the new Surface Pro 7, the Surface Laptop 3 13.5 is on the outside a minor refresh, but all those hardware changes add up to a marvelous experience.

Thermaltake TOUGHRAM RGB DDR4-3200 16GB Dual Channel Memory Kit Review
There is no doubt in our minds that when it comes to shopping for DDR4, Thermaltake might be the very last company you would look to for it. However, it seems that this year was the time for any manufacturer with the dream to sell RAM, took advantage of things, and are now throwing their hats in the ring. With companies like Antec and GIGABYTE stepping in the door nearer the beginning of the year, and now Thermaltake is selling it, it appears that the flood gates are open for anyone with the backing to buy a ton of ICs. From the trade show images, we were fully aware of the TOUGHRAM, and WaterRam plans to come to market, but it appears that Thermaltake did not want to stop there. While the product lines mentioned above are the top tier of their lineup, Thermaltake also offers The M-ONE RAM, which comes naked sporting black PCBs. Similar to those, but with a simple heat spreader used, they have the H-ONE series, both of which are not sold at speeds faster than 3000MHz. For those looking for a bit more speed from your DDR4, the first two series have offerings at 3000, 3200, and 3600MHz options.
