Core i9-9900K vs. Ryzen 2800X: Totally fake benchmarks!

Intel’s rumored “Ryzen-Killing” 5GHz Core i9-9900K and AMD’s rumored “Core i9-Killing” Ryzen 7 2800X aren’t official CPUs yet. But the slow drip of leaks and rumors surrounding the launch of the next big chip war has reached a full-on deluge. The leaks have gotten so bad, Amazon even posted a picture of the Intel part (which isn’t on sale yet) this week. We’re also now seeing more leaks of AMD’s highly anticipated Ryzen 7 2800X, expected to offer up to 10 cores…

The Dell OptiPlex 7060 Small Form Factor (SFF) ($799 starting price, $1,650 as tested) is a high-end desktop for business.

Acer Chromebox CXI3 Review & Rating

Originally conceived for use in low-power notebooks, Chrome OS has come a long way since it was first introduced back in 2011. These days, it’s far more than a glorified web browser. For one, most late-model Chrome OS-based hardware can now run Android apps out of the box. And it’s not all about laptop-shaped Chromebooks, either. Sporadically, we’ve seen miniature Chrome OS desktops dubbed “Chromeboxes” pop up from makers such as Acer, Asus, and Lenovo. The latest eruption is Acer’s…

Hands On With the Microsoft Surface Studio 2 | News & Opinion

For digital artists who have learned to use an electronic stylus like the Microsoft Surface Pen or the nifty Surface Dial as their creative tools, it doesn’t get much better than the Surface Studio as a replacement for a physical easel.

Perhaps it comes as little surprise, then,…

Hands on with the Microsoft Surface Studio 2: Still the PC you desire but can’t afford

Microsoft touted its Surface Studio 2 as the “fastest Surface ever” while launching it at its Surface event on Tuesday. That may be true in the end, though Microsoft barely squeaks by with that definition on paper.

Let’s get this out of the way: We saw Microsoft’s latest Play Anywhere PC/Xbox game, Forza Horizon 4, being played on the Surface Studio 2, and it looked amazing. The…
