I have a confession to make. I'm currently eyeing a few AM4 motherboards, and I'm pretty much settled for B350 chipset in terms of features. When it comes to motherboards, however, there are many other useful features like USB 3.1 Gen 2 not included with lower-tiered B350 boards, or just plain crappy VRMs. Then come the ASUS ROG STRIX X370-F and ROG STRIX B350-F motherboards.
When it comes to the challenge of creating a tiny little cooler for tiny little builds, it's always C-type CPU coolers like the Noctua NH-L12. But there are alternatives, right? Like the Noctua NH-U9S? Well, I guess we'll find out here.
Right - external hard disks. They're crucial to everyone - either for backups only, as a form of expanded storage, or for large file transfers. Whichever it is, durability is important and we know it. An external hard disk is always susceptible to accidents and suffers a premature death. Thus, the Apacer AC730 takes this durability to the extreme.
I shall start by saying this - dual-camera smartphones are all the rage these days. I've seen many people looking for a new smartphone, and one of their criteria is "must have dual-camera". While it is arguably one of the newest feature offered at the hardware level, there are major misconceptions about these dual-camera smartphones. Let's DEBUNK all of them here!
Not too long ago, we have this little issue regarding the Huawei P10's storage and RAM chips used. That caused a lot of stir already, since we consumers need to pay the same price to enter a "performance lottery". If you get UFS 2.1 with LPDDR4 on your unit of the P10, you're lucky. While that storm is still brewing, Huawei decided to preemptively make the next move - removing any mentions of UFS 2.1 on the Mate 9 and its Pro variant's product page.
I think the best way to start this off is the seriousness of this issue, but a little more context is needed. This is the Huawei P10 and the P10 Plus's situation now - it uses two different types of RAM and a total of 3 different types of storage technologies. Here's why it matters.
