Hardware news this week recaps PC World's channel disappearing and re-emerging in the ongoing YouTube platform saga, but also talks industry news: EVGA, ASUS, and Corsair have all had layoffs recently, AMD launched gaming chairs via Vertagear, Intel is bringing back HEDT CPUs with W790, and more.
Hardware news this week covers a few GN topics and a lot of industry topics. On the GN side, our video (below) talks about our plans to hire for a Camera Operator / Editor role, YouTube age-gating our Arc A380 review, and behind-the-scenes of the Artesian Builds RMA issue that we covered in a video recently. In industry news, we're talking about a weird M.2 tower cooler, NVIDIA's price desperation on GPUs, and leaks about the Intel i9-13900K, among other things.
In hardware news this week, we're recapping the new anti-bending LGA1700 bracket for Intel 12th Gen CPUs (as an ILM replacement), alongside a new super-small passive PSU, the NZXT Z690 motherboards, and ASRock's new X670 and X670E motherboards for AMD AM5 Zen4 platforms later this year.
In rumors, we're covering the RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 rumored release timelines, the GTX 1630, and more. We've also got some Steam Deck alternatives in the news.
