PC enthusiasts delight at the task of checking specs, looking at numbers, and comparing performance differences. For the average user, though, this can be a complete chore, and may even be totally counterproductive depending on how incompatible their regular activities are with PC technology.
Entry-level GPU is dead. At least, that was how we perceived the empty void below our current “mid-range” lineup: the RX 6600 XT, RX 6600 and the RTX 3060. Either you have to pay exorbitant prices to get respectable frame rates, or keep using outdated architecture to eke out a meager experience of very low-end gaming […]
Intel’s 12th Gen Alder Lake CPUs certainly turned heads when they finally became available for retail a few months ago. But, for us low budget-oriented enthusiasts, the costs associated with Intel 12th Gen systems (Z690, DDR5, etc.) are simply not worth our attention. We were far more interested to see if the promise of cheap non-unicorn […]
Handheld gaming PCs are a weird bunch, at least when it comes to classifying them as a piece of consumer hardware. For the most part, we define something as a “handheld PC” when it is built to run a full desktop/laptop operating system in mind. This means either using traditional Intel or AMD CPUs, or […]
As the entire PC enthusiast community reels in the disaster that is the current GPU crisis, people are driven to look for any alternative solutions to building a gaming machine. In the past, full size gaming desktops have been the go-to for gamers but not anymore. Gaming laptops and even Mini PCs are considered given […]
Ultraportable that are super light and ultra slim, yet powerful are made possible with Intel’s 11th generation processors.

We look at 8 of the best powerful and light laptops weighing less under 1.2kg.
When shopping for a 4K Ultra HD monitor, 28-inch is the sweet spot to go for. With that many dots, 27-inch might just be a little tight while 32-inch 4K monitor are still expensive. Also, at Ultra HD resolution, you are not going to get any higher than 60Hz refresh rate so fast action gamers […]
If you are looking for a multiple monitor setup with 4K monitors, these 27-inch monitors are your best bet. They are big but not too big that it becomes overwhelming when you have more than one. Even if you are looking for a single 4K monitor setup to work from home (WFH), connecting up your […]
High refresh rate screens offer the best in viewing experience especially when scrolling on your app or browser and enjoying high action content be it games or video streaming.

We know that AMD Ryzen 7 5800H processor performs equally when compared to Intel Core i7-11800H, both being octa-core CPUs. Paired with the right GPU such as the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060, RTX 3070 or RTX 3080 or even the Radeon RX6600M, they are a formidable gaming machine that is not only good value for […]
Mid-range laptops have changed significantly over the past two years. Not just in terms of graphics performance, but the average choice of CPUs has since then drastically evolved thanks to AMD’s insistence in driving its multi-core philosophy to the mobile market. We take a look at some of the best mid-range mobile gaming laptop for […]
Here is the thing, while both MacBook Air M1 and MacBook Pro 13 M1 come with Apple’s own silicon, they carry with it the same design as previous generation devices based on Intel processors. The MacBook Pro 14 and 16 launched at the end of 2021 use a whole new chassis design, Liquid Retina XDR display […]
So here is the thing, both 13.3-inch laptops are based on the same Apple M1 chip and are equally great at single core and multi-core tasks, even beating the top shelf MacBook Po 16-inch of 2019 with Intel Core i9-9980HK and iMac 27 2020 with Intel Core i9-10910. They are great value and a force […]
Best Budget CPUs and GPUs Launched in 2021: Affordable processors & graphics for the budget conscious
The years 2020 and 2021 have been absolutely crazy, with the pandemic outbreak, chip shortage, scalpers, and all. In the PC tech industry alone, these whirlwind of issues eventually caused the current GPU crisis, effectively eliminating most up-to-date entry-level components as serious price-to-performance options.
Short answer: Alder Lake is fine as it is, but you may want to “ripen” it a bit further. To put that into better context, Intel’s Alder Lake (12th Gen) architecture finally brings the tech giant back to the competitive consumer table. And even if naysayers keep on sharply criticising the usual tendency of Intel CPUs […]
