Intel® introduces 10th Generation Core Series for Desktop

Intel® has released the 10th generation core CPU family, featuring Core S-Series processors with up 5.3GHz frequencies. Intel® is rather precise in its messaging, ‘Games and most applications continue to depend on high frequency cores’. It easily reveals both the main means of performance gains and the audience to which this is most relevant.

ROG STRIX RX 5500 XT Review

WEB: ASUS MSRP: US $249.99 | ZAR TBD | AUTHOR: Neo

The Radeon RX 5500 XT is the latest of the Navi line of cards I’ve reviewed, but it is also the least powerful. Do not however let that deter you as this is one capable card for 1080P gaming. The ROG STRIX RX 5500 XT features 8GB of memory, a slight overclock (20MHz) on the core and some value added functionality. If it can be found at the right price, this may make for one of the best RX 5500 XTs on the market.

Cougar Havoc BT Wireless Gaming Headset Review

WEB: COUGAR MSRP: US $64.90 | ZAR TBD | AUTHOR: Neo

Several weeks ago I reviewed Cougar’s Attila gaming headset and I came away from that review impressed by the value it offered. This time I have a higher quality headset in the form of the Havoc BT, which is in itself a follow up on the original wired mode only, Havoc headset.

ADATA SU750 512GB SSD Review

WEB: ADATA MSRP: US $59.99 | ZAR 1,559 | AUTHOR: Neo

ADATA SU750

Here we are with yet another ADATA SSD, but this time it’s the SU750 2.5” SATA model. With nearly all vendors selling performance above all, the SU750 is strictly about value. This is an entry level drive and as such, it forgoes the typical high-speed controllers but instead uses a Realtek 2-channel IC. This controller and the drive’s lack of any DRAM cache is what allows it to retail for such an aggressive price. For a budget drive, it’s difficult to fault the performance because at worst it’s still faster than any mechanical drive. That alone makes it a worthwhile drive for one to consider.

ASUS TUF GAMING X570-PLUS Review

WEB: ASUS MSRP: US $193.22 | ZAR 3,999 | AUTHOR: Neo

X570 Plus

I think it’s safe to say that X570 boards have gone from interesting to incredible since their introduction in 2019. We went from the chipset fans being an issue, to something we rarely if ever talk about anymore. Now, in 2020 (yes, I know, the X570-Plus is from 2019) we even have refined offerings like the TUF-Gaming X570-Plus for the entry-level and budget space. In that same period, AGESA updates have improved compatibility and performance, making the whole experience that much better .

For serious gamers looking to improve their experiences, keyboards shouldn’t be overlooked. While some gamers will debate which is the better option between conventional controllers and keyboards, the latter approach seems to win out for PC users. And there are some instances, and some games, for which a mouse and keyboard setup is clearly superior.

XFX RX 5600 XT THICC III Ultra Review

WEB: XFX MSRP: USD 329.99 | ZAR 5,849 | AUTHOR: Neo


Following the RX 5700 XT review we have yet another entry using the NAVI10 GPU in the XFX RX 5600 XT Thicc III Ultra. A silly name for a card which provides the best performance at this price point par none. These days R6,000 / $349 doesn’t buy much GPU performance, but with the XFX RX 5600XT it seemingly does. This graphics card provides what I deem unmatched performance for FHD and in some rare instances QHD gaming.
