Gigabyte AORUS RTX 2080 Ti Gaming Box is a water-cooled graphics dock

You may have started hearing about gaming smartphones that boast about some form of water-cooling (technically vapor), but the real titleholders in water-cooled systems are monstrous gaming PC rigs.

The AORUS RTX 2080 Ti Gaming Box claims to be an external graphics enclosure like no other, boasting of the industry's first water cooling solution inside a graphics dock.

Blizzard did not just apologize for Hong Kong

Blizzard did not just apologize for Hong Kong

China was watching as Blizzard Entertainment president J. Allen Brack walked onstage today at BlizzCon. Knowing full well that this event might be overshadowed by the biggest Blizzard-related news of the latter half of the year, Brack began the first major presentation of the event with what might've appeared to be an apology. He did use the word "sorry", but he did not use the words "China" or "Hong Kong" whatsoever.

Falcon Northwest 20th Anniversary Talon Review: Custom done right

Falcon Northwest 20th Anniversary Talon Review: Custom done right

The Falcon Northwest 20th Anniversary Edition Talon is not a mobile PC. It's a heavy beast, made with 4mm thick aluminum plating and optional glass panels, coming in at around 40-pounds in all. The folks at Falcon Northwest made a name for themselves with custom-painted, custom-built, meticulously detailed high-end PCs. As their 20th Anniversary Edition Talon build was launched here in the second half of 2019, we decided to put their team to work on creating a build that was not only stocked with a powerful set of innards, but a custom-painted exterior to boot.

Riot Games’ Project A tactical shooter leaves the world of LoL behind

Riot Games’ Project A tactical shooter leaves the world of LoL behind

Thanks to the former popularity of MOBA games, League of Legends developer Riot Games became one of the better-known names in the industry. What isn't that well-known, however, is that the company actually doesn't have any other product that isn't League of Legends or related to it. With the age of MOBAs seemingly waning, the company may have realized it was time to get ready to move on beyond LoL and create a future that may not involve it. And that is what Project A is really all about.

Atari VCS gaming PC in question after key architect quits

Atari VCS gaming PC in question after key architect quits

Crowdfunding has given rise to dreamers, scammers, and everything in between. It has become an almost level playing field where even big companies may fail to deliver on promises or even make them a reality. It may be too early to judge the already delayed Atari VCS "retro" gaming PC "console" but it seems that it is getting dragged into controversy yet again after the departure of the still-unfinished product's designer.

Surface Earbuds hands-on and in-ear first impressions

Surface Earbuds hands-on and in-ear first impressions

Today we got our first opportunity to give the new Microsoft Surface Earbuds a listen. Because we're in a relatively loud environment here at the Microsoft Surface event in NYC, it's not exactly the most kind place to test something like this - but, shockingly, these earbuds did the trick. Because of the unique way in which the buds fit in the ear, we were treated to an audio immersion experience the likes of which we've never heard before - certainly not in an environment such as this.

Surface Pro 7 hands-on and first impressions

Surface Pro 7 hands-on and first impressions

Surface Pro 7 looks a lot like its predecessor, but works with the latest in AMD and Intel power - as well as fast charging. Since the primary differences between the most recent Surface Pro and this Surface Pro 7 are not cosmetic, a lot of the changes will need further review later this year when the device is released (to our review bench).
