The ever-growing trend of NVMe SSDs being adopted by the mass market is true and it's happening now. Storage solution manufacturers are hopping on the NVMe SSD bandwagon, and for us consumers, competition is always good. The Apacer PT920 COMMANDO is one of the competitors in the PCIe Gen. 3 x4 NVMe SSD market while looking extra eccentric to catch everyone's attention.
Power supplies aren't something that will get refreshed and renewed often, since if it works then we pretty much won't bother much - unless aesthetics come into play.

In each generation of graphic cards, the VRAM and clock speeds tend to scale according to its price. As prices go up the clock speed and VRAM goes up too.

With efforts of bringing up the gamers up to speed with the custom PC community, Brightstar and ASUS will have a Powered By ASUS PC Build Challenge at their ROG Concept Store, which is located at Lowyat.
I think by this time, we all know what Intel and AMD have done during the Computex week. Intel rushed their announcement of the X299 platform and it seems like a sorry excuse to launch something because the spotlight is shining on AMD now. During Computex 2017 AMD announcements, there were a few other things that were missed out initially. Here, I'll highlight them.
When Ryzen was first debuted worldwide, AMD sent out a set of hardware for many reviewers - which includes a Ryzen 7 CPU, Corsair LPX RAM kit, an X370 motherboard, and most importantly, a special edition Noctua NH-U12S that's made for AMD's AM4 socket only. But again, you can get the basic edition Noctua NH-U12S and get the AM4 mounting plate separately for free. But then again - how does it really perform?
Here's the deal - with ASUS's announcement on Monday, you might think "hey, that's all from ASUS, right?" I thought the same, but it's not. But nope - here's the Computex 2017 ASUS ROG announcements, which brings a lot of new brand new products.
When it comes to motherboards these days, its aesthetics is important. The all new ASUS X299 motherboards are built around that mantra, and obviously still maintains ASUS's quality of hardware.
First off, congratulations to Cooler Master for staying active in the scene for the past 25 years!
