The Guru of 3D: Radeon RX 6400 review

Meet AMD's Radeon RX 6400. It has 4GB of 64-bit RAM and a whiff of Inifinity Cache (16MB L3). This card might operate at Radeon RX 480 levels when connected to a PCIe Gen x4 connection (3.0/4.0).

Anandtech: The MSI MPG Z690 Carbon WIFI (DDR5) Motherboard Review: A Decent Mid-Ranged Z690

As we near the end of Intels 12th Gen (Alder Lake) life cycle, its 13th Gen Core series is expected to be due by the end of the year; were looking at a premium model from the Z690 chipset. As we already know, Intels Z690 chipset (LGA 1700) will offer support for the impending 13th Gen Core series, so it does offer a viable upgrade path for users looking to build a 12th Gen Core series system today and potentially upgrade at a later date.

LanOC Reviews: Lian Li SP850 SFX PSU

Crucial recently launched their two new latest drives the P3 and the P3 plus and I recently took a look at the P3 Plus. The P3 Plus is their budget-focused PCIe 4.0 drive and the standard P3 sticks with the PCIe 3.0 interface of their past drives for those who don’t need 4.0 performance or don’t have the hardware to take advantage of the performance. I was impressed with the P3 Plus, especially with its price point considering its performance. So today I’m going to check out the P3 in the same 2TB capacity as I did with the P3 Plus and we will find out how it performs and if it is also a good value so let’s get to it!

Hardware Busters: Corsair HX1000i PSU Review. Let's get (semi) Digital!

The new Corsair HXi units are here, and after the HX1500i review, it was time to test the HX1000i. The last HX1000i I tested was in 2014 for TechPowerUp, having similar specs to this one. Someone would expect efficiency to go up after all this time, but nothing significant was introduced in this section by 80 PLUS. On the other hand, we have the Cybenetics ratings now, which are way more demanding, and the new HX1000i meets the Cybenetics Platinum efficiency requirements. It is also rated Cybenetics A- in noise output, making it a reasonably quiet PSU.
