ASUS ROG Strix X99 Gaming Review
What sets the ROG Strix X99 Gaming apart from other motherboards is the broad swath of features that you get with the board. As a gaming-centric board, the whole of the feature set is geared toward the gaming experience. Starting with the hardware level build out on the board, you have ESD Guards to prevent inbound current spikes from damaging the board. Gamer's Guardian is a set of hardware level protections, including ASUS SafeSlot, ASUS' excellent Digi+ VRM, Q-Code diagnostic display, Supreme FX Sound, Q-Dimm slots with DRAM overvoltage protection, and the RGB LED lit PCIe Q-Slots. RGB lighting is all the rage now and ASUS is ready to support this feature set with AURA controlled RGB LED headers on board. Using AURA, you have the ability to manage attached RGB accessories.

Gigabyte Aero 15 Review
The Aero 15 is the best laptop I've ever tested from Gigabyte. It's a reasonably portable 15.6-inch laptop with great internals (Core i7 quad core + GTX 1060 + M.2 SSD), making it suitable for both workstation and gaming use.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (2017) Review: Optimized Mobility
Lenovo's venerable ThinkPad business oriented laptop line is punctuated by a couple of stand-out models, but perhaps none as striking, at least for a ThinkPad, as the ThinkPad X1 series. In its current lineup, Lenovo offers two models specifically that command attention perhaps more than others, the ThinkPad X1 Yoga that we recently revisited--with its 360-degree hinge and sweet OLED display--and the new 5th generation ThinkPad X1 Carbon that we'll be looking at here today. Though the 5th gen ThinkPad X1 Carbon may share a similar design signature and materials as the previous generation, Lenovo's 2017 version has been almost completely re-designed...

Vulkan and OpenCL will merge into a single API
Graphics and compute in one open standard. Earlier this week the Khronos Group issued a press release concerning the availability of a finalised OpenCL 2.2 specification with SPIR-V 1.2. However, eagle eyed Scott Michaud at PCPer noticed something that slipped by many other tech reporters. A single line statement at the end of paragraph three signalled a very important update on the horizon; "We are also working to converge with, and leverage, the Khronos Vulkan API — merging advanced graphics and compute into a single API."
