Both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S are big consoles, compared to previous generation models. Part of the reason is assumed to be that these are basically fast PCs in console digs, with custom hardware based on AMD’s Zen 2 CPU and RDNA 2 graphics architectures. And that is true. But regarding the PS5 specifically, Sony’s Otori Yasuhiro
Intel has some catching up to do, assuming AMD’s recently announced Ryzen 5000 lineup lives up to the performance claims (and early benchmark results in Cinebench R20 suggest it will). How will Intel respond? With yet another iteration of its 14-nanometer manufacturing, of course. However, rumor has it Intel’s upcoming Rocket Lake-S processors
Back in April, OnePlus wowed us with the $899 OnePus 8 Pro — its first bonafide flagship. We were less enamored with the $699 OnePlus 8, which — while still being a great phone — cut a few too many corners (no telephoto, no wireless charging), and cost too much for an affordable flagship.

Buying a solid state drive right now is not a bad idea, with all of the Prime Day deals happening (at Amazon and other retailers as well). But if you decide to wait a bit, you might be rewarded with even lower prices. Same goes for RAM. A continued oversupply of memory chips is the reason, with average selling prices (ASPs) predicted to decline
Over the summer, we reviewed the OnePlus Buds, which are true wireless earbuds with surprisingly good sound quality for a reasonable $79. Compared to the $129 Apple AirPods, the OnePlus Buds represented a refreshing alternative (as well as a foil for U.S. Customs and Border Protection).
Now, the company is back with a new set of wireless
Over the next few months, all eyes will be on Intel’s upcoming 11th generation Comet Lake-S desktop processors, which will supplant the current 10th generation Comet Lake-S family. While still being based on the 14nm process node, Rocket Lake-S will bring support for PCIe 4.0, Thunderbolt 4, along with higher clocks (and IPC) and more performance
