The 8th gen iPhones are the most speculated iPhones the past 7 years. Today, Apple has officially ended the rumor mill with the official release of the iPhone 8 family consisting of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and the peculiar iPhone 8X.

The key upgrade to the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus is the new 6-core A11 Bionic SoC. This new chip uses two performance cores and four high-efficiency cores. During its [...]
As always, our friends at Razer had some big introductions at E3 this year with their new Razer Blade Stealth and the Razer Thresher Ultimate Gaming Headset.
Mid-2017 Razer Blade Stealth

As such, Razer introduced their new Gunmetal grey color that’s a lot more boardroom friendly with its [...]

Down the hall from Kingston’s CES 2017 suite was HyperX, the gaming and performance components division of Kingston, which now seems to be becoming more independent than ever.
The most impressive showing at the HyperX suite was their upcoming HyperX Predator LED which is an upcoming RGB LED lit high performance memory kit.
